The Astrology of January is quite intense, featuring a lunar eclipse as well as Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Pluto, and Eris. All these powerful planetary archetypes have come together for January of 2020 either as part of a large Capricorn stellium that is active right from the very beginning of the month, in alignment with the current lunations, or, in the case of Eris, in square with Saturn-Pluto. Of course, the biggest headline news for the month is the perfection of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction which has been forming for many weeks, and which symbolizes an empowerment of the limitations of Saturn as well as the massive structural transformations implied by a greatly emphasized Pluto in combination, affecting us all both individually and collectively. This anticipated event is exact on January 12th, and active for the days surrounding this moment of time, beginning with the January 10th CancerFull Moon eclipse at 20 + degrees of Cancer-Capricorn. This is a mere two degrees from the 22-degree mark of Saturn-Pluto. Because we remain in the midst of the Capricorn lunation cycle begun late on Christmas Day with the solar eclipse and New Moon that took place early in the sign, conjunct Jupiter and trine Uranus in Taurus, that trickster energy of surprise and brilliant observation is very much in the picture of this month’s energy as well. Powerful Uranus, that wants freedom of expression above all else, and is always more than willing to jump the tracks of existing habit patterns, must contend, in the timing of the mid-month lunar eclipse, with an extra-potent dose of Saturn, that wants above all to put a clamp on things, holding them down from too experimental an approach. We see this being acted out in the current zeitgeist by the powerfully progressive voices being raised running up against conservative forces absolutely holding the line. The lunar eclipse also has Mercury appearing in partile or same-degree conjunction with the eclipse Sun, further strengthening its impact. With Mercury so closely involved, this brings the important issue of consciousness of what we are up to directly to the table.
Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is also emphasized in this month’s astrological configurations. Chiron was squared by the New Moon lunation of December 25th, a solar eclipse, that began this current 30-day cycle, and will be aspected as well by the January 24th New Moon. The potent January 10th lunar eclipse in Cancer highlights Chiron also, by means of a close quintile from Sun and Mercury. Perched at very nearly the beginning degree of Aries, like Uranus in his occupancy of a similar degree of Taurus, Chiron thus participates in an ongoing significant semi-sextile with the cosmic Trickster. We will be intuitionally aware of our own inner wounding and coming to new realizations concerning the way this interior factor, most times the residue from early childhood trauma, continues to influence our lives and our choices. We must pause here to note that the objective facts in this matter of our inner wounding are few. We are what we think we are. Similarly, when that subjective attitude changes, we change. Becoming aware of what is going on in the dark places within you, where inner wounding has been buried away, is the first and most significant step in beginning to move beyond these sometimes quite debilitating complexes deep inside. After recognition comes compassion for the hurt child that remains within us, and an ability to comfort these walled off parts of ourselves. This activity is extremely important as we move forward in the surge of evolutionary development that is presaged by strong Pluto for this new month, year, and decade.
Prominent Uranus is also quite an important factor in January’s astrology, as indicated above. In addition to being aspected by the December 25th New Moon eclipse, Uranus is squared by the Sun and Moon in the January 24th New Moon, and stations to direct motion on the same day as the January 10th Full Moon eclipse, so we currently have a lot of his trickster energy in the picture! This month also represents the swan song of the Uranus-Pluto square that was the hallmark of the previous decade, as the 10-degree orb of their interaction becomes transcended. This world transit, the next stage of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction that defined the volatile 1960s, represents testing the validity of new ways of thinking and being in the world, attempting to determine whether they are viable as mainstream elements. With climate change bearing down upon us like an express train, we will have to embody a more positive model of social interaction and veneration for Nature if we are to survive, so the stakes are extremely high right now.
Finally, and also directly relating to the above, we have Eris, Feminine Warrior in support of soul intention, quite prominently involved in the powerful Saturn-Pluto square that perfects mid-month. Saturn and Pluto are at 22 + of Capricorn, while Eris currently occupies the 23-degree mark of Aries, a nearly perfect square alignment. This energy is all about digging down deep inside ourselves in order to determine our most sincere values, and then proceeding with courage to act upon these, and only these, as we take ourselves forward into our next evolutionary stage. In order to do this, we must recognize only that which we incontrovertibly believe, independent of consensus thought or the reactivity of others. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of this, of course. Blessed with powerful Eris in her own natal chart, she has electrified environmentalists all over the world with her dedication to her own inner truth, to the absolute exclusion of what others might think, or social convention might dictate. If we can follow her example, each in our own individual way, we will have come a long way toward tackling the extreme problems we and the earth face as a society and as Nature symbiosis. Noted 20th century anthropologist Margaret Mead, herself with Eris closely square the Sun, perhaps articulated this principle best when she said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

This is yet another rather intense month, Aries; philosophically active and introspectively alive, as you navigate a dark passage. Yet, this is also the time that you have been preparing for, with the availability of sudden breakthrough. Saturn closely aligned with Pluto in Capricorn, mid-month, corresponds to outer reputation, career, and professional life. Can these align with your profound sense of mission for this lifetime? You might get a few more gray hairs, but this is your chance to shine. Nothing so powerfully significant ever comes easy, and yet when the dust settles you may find that you are greatly enriched by what you have gone through. It is also important to note that inner wounding could come up for you in early January, for the beneficial purpose of becoming more conscious of what is going on below the surface layers of your psyche. You are advancing in maturity and wisdom, with a strong degree of trickster energy also in the mix, just for fun.
Happy New Year Aries! 2020 kicks off with the First Quarter Moon in Aries on January 2nd, and your ruler Mars moving into Sagittarius on January 3rd. These two aspects alone should help you shake off the holiday haze, and get the year started with some propulsion power. Mars entering the Fire sign of Sagittarius will be an excellent and supportive force for Aries in the coming weeks, and you could already be feel the restlessness and desire to get moving. Mars transiting in Sagittarius until February 16th is your cue to dream big, and envision what you want 2020 to look like; set your gaze on the distant horizon. If you have been dreaming about traveling, January might be your opportunity. However, with the stellium of planets currently transiting in Capricorn, responsibilities abound for Aries folks like you, and you might feel burdened by a heavy work load and too many responsibilities. The current astrological weather calls for pragmatism and the ability to carry your burdens gracefully while also getting rid of what has run its course in your life. It’s a fine balancing act to accept your realities while simultaneously working to accomplish bigger goals you have envisioned for yourself.
You might need to discriminate between what you want versus what you feel obligated to do and ask yourself why certain structures are in your life to begin with. Change can be very difficult especially when you feel burdened, and therefore it might be harder to differentiate what you want versus to what you feel obligated. For Aries, this back and forth questioning is happening mostly in regards to career and vocational path, and this soul-searching will continue in 2020. The silver lining is that 2020 begins with Mars in Sagittarius, which helps fuel and expand the vision you have for yourself; you might not get quick results right away, but you can definitely brain-storm for the future.
A Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place on January 10th in your home sector, highlighting your roots, family, ancestors, and what at the end of the day allows you to feel connected and grounded. These themes are well underway and the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer reinforces how much of a support system your home and/or your family is in your life right at the moment. Acknowledge your roots and don’t underestimate the importance of your current setup. This is a powerful transit that includes a ton of transformational energy ready for you to make use of.
From January 10th to the 14th, the much talked-about Saturn-Pluto conjunction takes place in the sign of Capricorn in your career and vocational sector. Issues around your current direction, your role at work, and your aspirations are highlighted. You could be feeling powerless or confuse as to what step to take next. Dissatisfactions surrounding your aspirations could come to the forefront now and you can see this as a necessary passage towards clarifying your objectives. Sensitivities surrounding these themes have been on the radar in the recent months, and will continue to be. Unearthing your own motivations and desires around your career goals and what has grown stale will pay off tremendously but you must be willing to look at these complex issues honestly. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn symbolically represents a culmination of this long period of reflection concerning your career and overall direction. With Mercury entering the heart of the Sun at this time, and Uranus turning direct in your money sector on the same day, it could finally start to feel like you are able to surrender to a process you had been resisting until now. Pay attention to clues, synchronicities, new ideas, revelations or omens around this date as they could help you towards the next step of your journey.
Venus enters Pisces on January 13th, encouraging you to find some time for a contemplative practice in order to regroup. You might be feeling restless and ready to keep going, but a necessary period of reflection will better support your on-going process. It is to your advantage to find outlets for anxiety or stress as Venus in Pisces from January 13th to February 7th is a great opportunity for finding calm, peace and to reconnect with yourself. A trip or a retreat would be an excellent way to utilize the current astrology.
The Last Quarter Moon in Libra on January 16th emphasizes your relationships, and challenges you to find a compromise between your needs and the needs of close partners. With the Sun entering Aquarius on January 20th your attention will start to shift from career to friends, alliances, and your participation within a community. The New Moon in Aquarius on January 24th is an excellent time to set goals in connections to your aspirations, and look for opportunities to participate more actively in your social settings. A certain group of people might appear that can even more quickly take you to your goals. Also, the next lunar cycle extending into February could reveal to you just how much your alliances can give you right now.
This is another fascinating month for you Taurus, when the seismic shift that has been taking place in your belief systems comes to a something of a head. This also involves educational and travel initiatives, as well as evolving worldview, and your higher mind consciousness, all in flux. You have always been cautious and practical in your approval of new ways to conceptualize this life, and yet there has lately been loads of inspiration upon you to take a flyer and allow yourself to dream into novel approaches to seeing the world around you. You might need to be able to go beyond either-or as you reconceptualize your universe. A peak of intensity in this internal drama will arise in the timing of the CancerFull Moon eclipse of January 10th and the days immediately following. You might find a way forward where you escape previous limitations to your point of view, through compromise, and will want to be asking yourself whether it might just be only your fears that are holding you back.
Welcome to 2020, Taurus! The New Year arrives and with this new beginning, a new way of being arises also. It has become apparent that you have shed a tremendous weight, if only psychological, in 2019, and you are feeling extremely ready to embrace some new found perspectives in the year ahead. Quite a lot of the astrological action right now is happening in Capricorn and Taurus. The New Year begins with a stellium in Capricorn challenging you to align with newfound philosophies and realizations. The work within you also continues regarding long-held assumptions about what life is and what it all means. Fundamentally, Taurus seeks peace, ease, and the ability to feel deeply rooted and connected in her experience of life. Complicated philosophies and theories about the meaning of existence is not where you find your joy. It is often in the application of simple rules to live in accordance with nature that your strength in found. Happiness is the sensual experience and beauty of living fully embodied in the present tense; you are such a natural when it comes to that. With disrupting and revolutionary Uranus transiting in your sign in the last year you have however started to question long held habits and patterns in your life. A tremendous urge for more spaciousness, movement and experiences has been informing many of your recent decisions and it will continue to be that way throughout much if not all of 2020.
On January 3rd, Mars leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius until February 16th. This implies that negotiations around shared assets, debts or funding that have been taking place since last October might come to the forefront. Also, with your ruler Venus transiting in Aquarius until January 13th, much of your attention is on career and work. You could be busy envisioning new possibilities for yourself in regards to your work, and there are plenty of opportunities to innovate. You might be one of the only signs, along with Virgo, which can truly benefit from all the heavy planetary action happening in Capricorn. It doesn’t mean that life is easy for you now, but it means that with proper planning and realistic goal-setting, you can get a lot accomplished this year, especially if you are willing to take a few calculated risks.
A Lunar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Cancer on January 10th bringing attention to the way you communicate and also interact with your surroundings. With Cancer being a Water sign, this eclipse highlights the importance of having a gentle and caring approach in your dealings with others. You can benefit from adopting a compassionate and understanding tone in your relationship connections. This eclipse also highlights the logistics of your everyday life and how supportive your neighborhood and immediate surroundings actually are for you. Take stock of all the small joys that are found in your everyday happenings, including even your commute, and how these contribute on a regular basis to your feeling of belonging.
On January 13th, your ruler Venus enters her exalted home of Pisces and this is good news for you Taurus folks. It should be easier to find common ground and to be in good accord in your dealings with others; its a good time to mend the frazzled wires. Social gatherings and activities are also highlighted in the second half of the month and you might find yourself getting busier with socializing, and events taking place in your community. If you have been considering getting some bodywork, modifying your appearance, or revamping your image, now would be a great time to do so while Venus is in Pisces. Venus transiting here until February 7th, represents an excellent period for all artistic and pleasurable things. However, you might find your motivation for long strenuous efforts decreasing which is a small side-effect of being ruled by Venus, planet of ease and comfort.
The Sun enters Aquarius on January 20th, highlighting career, vocations and your public image. A New Moon takes place in Aquarius a few days later on January 24th bringing forth and inspiring resets in the part of your life connected to career. There is so much space for innovative ideas in your life right now and your skills and experience could be in high demand. It’s only a matter of choosing wisely what it is that you want to be doing as you might be presented with many options to choose from. The New Moon in Aquarius could also bring new opportunities to extend your reach and impact.
January is another of these intensely transformative months, Gemini, as you slide into 2020 with its accompanying societal evolution, contributing to your own. You have quite a lot of energy for exploring interpersonal intimacy, and, as well, for diving down into your own depths for a better connection with the hidden parts of your personality. Your friendships and the group affiliations that you favor are extremely valuable to you over this ending and new beginning, and yet also provide examples of the way that inner wounding can present barriers as you attempt more authentic interaction. There is tremendous intuitional guidance available to you now within the deeper reaches of your psyche, and you might be able to take advantage of this unusual resource to acknowledge the residue of early childhood trauma and forge better integration within you for all your parts. When you can acknowledge every facet of yourself and make friends with them, warts and all, you will have taken an important step forward into wholeness.
Happy New Year Gemini! January arrives and you continue to be busy with a variety of tasks, including your own work but also your responsibilities as a torchbearer for other people’s projects and ideas. This will also be big theme in January with a pile up of planets in Capricorn in your 8th house, which highlights what is shared between you and others. Collaborations and partnerships will also get a boost thanks to Mars entering your opposite sign of Sagittarius on January 3rd. However with this martial power thus firing up your house of relationships, finding common ground could become increasingly tricky.
On January 10th, a quite powerful Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place while your ruler Mercury moves into the heart of the Sun. You could finally start to see the light in regards to a collaboration, a project, an expected funding or an issue around shared finances. Either way, some information or resolve could be coming your way around the second weekend of January that will help you decide on the next step of a significant project. This is an extremely transformational time as well for issues of inner work and intimacy.
From January 10th to the 14th, the much talked about Saturn-Pluto conjunction takes place in Capricorn. There is ample power in this aspect to be realistic, grounded but also push the limits of your resolve with a certain goal or situation. Whatever setback you have been experiencing, the second weekend of January will bring clarifications. It might not be what you want to hear, or you might be required to give up something to make necessary gains. If you have experienced recent misunderstanding with others, you should now be able to untie the knot or at least begin to.
Venus transiting in Aquarius until January 13th is supporting an even and detached approach in your dealings, and you should be able to tackle difficult relational dynamics with a rational mindset. The famous line from Jean-Paul Sartre ‘’Hell is other people’’ might ring truer than usual for you this month. Thankfully you are endowed with social charm and enough wit to defuse any tangles you might be involved in.
On January 16th, your ruler Mercury enters Aquarius bringing attention on your role as a mentor, teacher, or your own learning journey. The mood will start to lighten up considerably in the second half of the month. You can start to see the purpose of a recent dilemma more clearly. Mercury in Aquarius will be supportive for you Gemini folks, although when Mercury squares Uranus on January 17th it could bring up an unforeseen or surprising element. It’s important that you be clear about your own motivation at this time. You might feel mentally restless or agitated but this transit can also bring you the benefit of a different perspective on a recurring problem. When handled mindfully, this aspect supports innovative vision and novel ideas, and is therefore an excellent time to bring a small revolution to your thinking, or to open up your perspectives. Exploring modalities or philosophies that are out of the norm could also be really stimulating for you now. If you feel restless or agitated, this would also be an excellent timing to explore the source of your irritation. You could get significant clues in regard to your own unconscious process during this period of time.
The Sun enters Aquarius on January 20th and a New Moon in Aquarius takes place on January 24th. Tensions will start to ease as your gaze turns toward the future, perhaps encouraging some big ideas you have in the works for 2020. The New Moon in Aquarius will bring a surge of new ideas and far reaching visions as your mind wonders beyond the confines of your daily routines. A powerful reset and an excellent time to set intentions for the year ahead, this New Moon takes place in your 9th house of long distance travel, higher education, knowledge and mind expansion. The seeds planted at this time could also bear fruit later this year at the height of summer.
Venus in Pisces and Mars in Sagittarius are more or less squaring each other for the last few days of January and this aspect will bring a focus on your interpersonal relationships. There could be tension between what you think you should do versus what you feel like doing. Thankfully, Venus in Pisces carries enough social grace to see you through any dilemmas that might arise at this time. In these last few days of January, you benefit when you can favor a compassionate approach over an assertive stance whenever possible.
This month is another intensely transformational cycle for you, Cancer, focusing on important Others in your life. There has been in this area, for many months now, an ongoing metamorphosis, providing major life lessons. As you deal with issues involving specific partners, or with how in general to characterize your relationship dynamic, you are reaching for a culmination to this inner journey, when your basic patterning is brought to greater conscious awareness. The December 10th Full Moon eclipse in your sign is quite potent in this regard. It is also likely that ancient and neglected dark places within you, the residue of early childhood trauma, will play a role in these inner investigations. This all takes place in a monthly cycle which features not only strong Saturn, but also trickster Uranus shining brightly in your sector of societal interaction. This indicates that, under the exciting stimulus of the New Year, you are shooting off in many different directions, and yet simultaneously seeking to limit yourself to what is ultimately practical.
Welcome to 2020 dear Cancer! This is a special time of the year for you as the Sun travels in the sign of Capricorn, opposite to Cancer in the Zodiac. The sign of Cancer is associated with the creative flow and lush fertility at the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Capricorn on the other hand, is associated with the cold and restrictive nature of Winter. This is an important dynamic for you since we currently have a stellium (four or more) planets transiting in Capricorn and you could be feeling the restrictive and maturity-inducing nature of Capricorn. It’s an excellent time to pay attention to the stories being weaved and unweaved at this time especially in the realm of your relationships. The New Year arrives as we travel the bridge between a solar eclipse that took place in Capricorn, late on December 25th, and a lunar eclipse that will occur in the sign of Cancer on January 10th. This means that we currently find ourselves in a liminal place; between one existing reality and another reality that is yet to be born. It’s a good idea not to draw any hard conclusions on your current situations as the cards are still being shuffled and situations are not set in stone. Your relationships are certainly on the radar as you enter the New Year and you could be wondering what to do in matters of the heart. Partnerships might not be flowing as smoothly as you would like, and you could feel polarized between the needs of a partner and your own. This time period represents a learning curve in your journey, especially regarding your own needs, dreams, and the vision you have for yourself versus the needs of a partner, or a potential partner. You are learning what it means to prioritize your well-being and this might not always be compatible with the way important people in your life see things. Relationships are a constant a work in progress, with periods of ease and periods of adjustments; it’s totally natural to have to adjust your sail. What is less natural is the reflexive impulse you sometimes might have to accommodate a friend or a partner to your own detriment. With five planets currently transiting in Capricorn, you are pulled to the other side; you could be tempted to think that someone else’s dreams are your own, or that it’s ok to make abstractions of your needs simply for the sake of the relationship. However, in order to begin the year on a good path, I urge you to assess the current structural integrity of your agreements and start considering making the proper renovations. This is about you, about what feels nurturing and supportive FOR YOU, and you want and need that foundation to be solid whether someone is willing to help you with that or not. Like I said earlier, it might be hard to see the shape of things to come at the moment, as everything fluctuates.
On January 10th, Mercury in Capricorn conjuncts the Sun, Uranus turns direct in Taurus, and a powerful lunar eclipse in occurs in your own sign of Cancer. Information and dialogues are likely to come to light that can help you see a situation more clearly. Also, you can expect tensions to ease in the third week of the month, after the Saturn-Pluto conjunction from January 10th to the 14th. The good news is that lessons are being learned and the teachings are starting to sink in.
Venus enters her exalted placement in the sign of Pisces on January 13th, bringing much needed perspective and ease. For you, Cancer, the transit of Venus in Pisces until February 7th is an invitation to move your gaze to the vast future horizon and envision new possibilities that await you this year. The second half of the month will be an excellent time to get into a creative flow and see where it takes you.
Mercury enters Aquarius on January 16th and the Last Quarter Moon in Libra occurs on January 17th, highlighting current tensions but also bolstering resolve around domestic or partnership dilemmas. Decisions must be made, but the Last Quarter Moon might highlight polarizing situations, as is typical, so that this is a good time to practice patience.
The New Moon in Aquarius takes place on January 24th. This New Moon is in a close square with Uranus in Taurus encouraging innovation and thinking outside of the box. If you are looking for assets to fund a project, now would be a good time to start researching your options. You have a lot of ideas and projects in the works for the upcoming year and this New Moon is a huge green light for you to get moving.
This is one more amazing month for you, Leo, with unexpected opportunities constantly knocking. This applies to your professional or career activities and to the way that you are attempting to align these more completely with inner priorities. You are shooting off in all directions and encountering occasional wild impulses to jump the tracks of existing responsibilities, and yet more often than not you feel constrained to rein these in, especially in the days following the intense December 10th Full Moon eclipse in Cancer. This is an entirely transformational time when lessons are in store and when you are likely as well to refine your understanding of your own inner world.

Set your gaze on the path ahead, and let this new inspiration bubble up inside you until it becomes your new reality.
This is for you an important month of self-development, Pisces, with good progress and benefits assured; although you will have to learn to gauge this by what your heart tells you, rather than by merely logical means. Your intuition is powerful now, and reveals itself to the extent that you can trust yourself to lean on it. Inner wounding stemming from early trauma might also arise, if so, for the purpose of moving beyond it. The powerful Capricorn lineup in your sector of societal involvement and future plans implies a huge focus in this area – especially in the timing of the utterly climactic lunar eclipse of January 10th – with visible alteration in your friendships, groups you favor, and your general attitude toward what you are actually up to in this life. The resources that you require, both physical and non-physical, are lining up to your advantage, with the implication that only your truest internal values will prove valid as your guiding lights.
Happy New Year Pisces! 2020 arrives while you are very busy socializing and gallivanting around various social gatherings fulfilling obligations and making public appearances. The first half of January will continue to have a relatively fast tempo as you make your rounds. Mars entering Sagittarius on January 3rd brings focus on your career, vocation and public persona and perhaps challenging you to take on more work while also giving you more stamina to get it done. The stellium of planets currently transiting in Capricorn are all in a supportive sextile to your sign, enabling you to find traction and grounding. Event though Capricorn season has been relatively demanding for folks, it is an excellent time to put some of your dreams down on paper and delineate practical steps to get there. This is such an excellent period of pragmatic upgrades for Pisces. Discipline and progress are available to you, and it’s only a matter of being honest and realistic about what you can and cannot do.
A Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place on January 10th bringing a powerful focus on your creative goals, self-expression, children, romance and everything that brings you pleasure through a creative act. Even though you are fully invested within various groups, there is something urging you to re-appropriate some of the energy you are investing in the community and redirect it towards more personal and creative projects. With your traditional ruler Jupiter in Capricorn, you must assume a certain level of responsibility in associations that are already well-established. However, the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer is your cue to get clear about some personal creative projects of yours and get the ball rolling. Uranus turning direct in Taurus on the same day brings insights into new modes of self-expression and innovative ways around communications. Your ability to say no and to delineate clear boundaries with others will be your key to gaining more time for personal projects this year. It is in your nature to sacrifice some of your time to ensure the well being of others but you will not be able to accomplish your goals if you are working on someone else’s dreams. It is always a work in progress for you, finding the perfect balance between give and take. Being very clear on where and to whom you are allocating your time right now will be helpful in accomplishing more this year.
From January 10th to the 14th, Saturn and Pluto meet in the sign of Capricorn and for Pisces this highlights your role as a teacher and a mentor. Something that has become perhaps a little bit burdensome is in need of restructuring, or at least honest appraisal. This reality is also a silver lining as it will help you implement some of the innovations and ideas you have been dreaming of.
On January 13th, Venus, planet of pleasure and love, enters your sign where she is considered exalted or extremely comfortable. Venus transiting in your sign until February 7th will help bond and tie back together anything that has become frayed. If you were thinking of beautifying your space or your body, it’s an excellent time to do so while Venus is traveling in Pisces. The only thing that might get in the way of pleasurable things and leisure in January, is your workload. With Mars in Sagittarius applying to a square with Venus in the second half of the month, you might feel torn between investing more of your energy in career and goals versus finding down time to create, play music, relax and enjoy the present moment.
Mercury, planet of communication enters Aquarius on January 16th and for you it’s your cue to start sorting out your assumptions, desires and needs. Mercury squares Uranus in Taurus on January 18 and highlights the difficult task of aligning your thoughts with the way you express yourself. There could be some adjustment required between your internal reality versus how you present in the world. You could feel a greater need to align your speech with some deeper realizations.
The New Moon in Aquarius comes along on January 24th, representing an excellent time to honor this truth, and to create space for a contemplative practice. An honest and mindful gaze into your internal dialogues to begin the year will support external changes. I know you are already well aware of how your thoughts shape your experience of reality. The New Moon in Aquarius is your cue to acknowledge the process you have been undergoing in connection with getting clearer about internal, emotional, psychological dialogues and how this is transforming your relationships with others. With Uranus in Taurus for many years to come, you are bent on finding new channels and modalities to express yourself.
