(January 20 – February 18, ’20)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN! You’re running on solar power this month, with the Sun now in your sign! A renewed sense of vitality, self-confidence and charisma is permeating your energy field; enjoy the attention and let your light shine, particularly on 1/20, 24 (New Moon) & 25. Take a fresh look at your appearance, self-image & lifestyle – change things up a bit! Except some surprises or breakthroughs on 1/22 (when the Sun squares Uranus, your planet). This is a time to see yourself more clearly, and your one-on-one interactions can provide useful feedback around the Full Moon on 2/8. Pay attention and take any personal insights to heart; aim for equality, mutuality & clarity in your one-on-one relationships!
Personal finances have been improving since 1/13; you can attract new sources of income, possessions and special gifts by using the power of visualization, especially on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5. Be conscious, however, on 1/26-28, as money could just slip through your fingers. Once Mercury turns retrograde in PISCES (2/16—3/9), it’s the time to review your expenditures, re-evaluate your personal resources and balance your bank statement. Clear up any confusion or misunderstandings. It’s also a good time to take a closer look at your nutritional needs, supplements and dietary habits; you may want to implement a healthier eating regimen.
From 2/7 on, you’ll be inspired to get back into circulation and involve yourself in some intellectually-stimulating activities. Check out a class or workshop, take a trip or connect with relatives & neighbors; step back on 2/13, however. Your social life has been quite lively & energetic since 1/3, and you can look forward to a potent connection with someone on 1/25. Don’t mix friends & finances between 1/26-28, though.
From 2/16 on (for the upcoming 6 weeks), you’ll want to redirect your energy into tying up some loose ends and finishing up old projects. Release any limitations from the past by cleaning closets, sorting, filing and putting your life in order. Pay special attention to work & health issues – resolve any old business so you can move forward to the future!LONG-TERM FORECAST: While Pluto moves through CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24), it’s the time for you to get down to business, clarify your life’s purpose, resolve old issues and develop an expertise in your particular field. Patient, disciplined efforts will pay off! During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be called upon to redefine your priorities, get back to the basics and confront & purge any outgrown habits, attachments or limitations. Any form of self-analysis will accelerate your evolutionary progress, whether it’s with a professional counselor, self-help books, workshops or personal studies. Clear the decks & put your life in order!
During Neptune’s 14-year stay in PISCES (2012-2026), you are in a process of developing a healthier approach to financial and emotional security. Your personal values and priorities will undergo important changes as you’ll become less identified with the material aspects of the world and more interested in the spiritual. You’re in the process of dissolving old survival attitudes, insecurities & attachments that have previously limited your freedom – financially, as well as emotionally. A tendency towards self-deception or confusion in monetary matters, as well as dietary habits, requires vigilance these days; stay as conscious as possible in personal business affairs and investments.
Your ruling planet, Uranus, has been transiting TAURUS since 5/15/18, and settles down in this earthy sign for the next 7 years). You are ready to change things up in home, family and property matters; do whatever you can to create more comfort, stability & safety in your domestic scene. Free yourself up from whatever is holding you down, and explore alternative approaches in your living situation.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you will be focusing on making your life more efficient and productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’re being called to restructure your priorities, solidify your skills and complete old projects. Much of long-lasting value can be accomplished during this cycle, so get to work and clear the decks of whatever is no longer functional or meaningful in your life. Some serious self-analysis could be particularly useful during this period.
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, you are ready to refocus your attention on cleaning, sorting, filing and clearing the decks; tie up some loose ends and complete old projects. Put some positive efforts into perfecting your skills, re-evaluating your priorities and putting your life in order throughout 2020. You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/07 – 1/5/09).
