(January 20 – February 18, ’20)
A lively, sparkling social life highlights your month ahead; spontaneous get-togethers, joint creative projects & unexpected encounters with unique individuals could add much joy & stimulation to your life, particularly on 1/20, 24 (New Moon), 25 & 2/7. Don’t turn down any invitations to parties, concerts & cultural events! Some surprises, changes or rearrangements could upset your plans on 1/22, so stay loose and be open to whatever comes up.
Once Venus enters ARIES on 2/7, you’ll be feeling more attractive, charming & sociable than usual; enhance your appearance, improve your self-image, and beautify your immediate environment over the next few weeks. You’ve been putting lots of energy into travel, education, sports or promotional activities lately; take a break around 1/27-28 to make sure you’re on the right path. Set aside time for personal projects around 2/8 (Full Moon); balance out your need for alone-time with your enjoyment of friends & shared experiences.
From 2/3 on, direct some focused attention into work & career matters, especially on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5. Once Mercury turns retrograde (2/16 —3/9), you’ll want to review methods & procedures, finish old projects, tidy up your life and clear up any confusion or chaos. Once Mars enters CAPRICORN, also on 2/16, you’ll be coming into your power. Take control, develop your natural leadership abilities and channel some disciplined efforts into achieving your professional & personal goals. Much of long-lasting value can be manifested during the following 6 weeks!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You are currently in the midst of a powerful transformation in both your personal & professional life while Pluto, your ruling planet, transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, new career directions will be emerging, as outgrown pathways either fall apart or reorganize to higher levels. Increased opportunities for leadership & public visibility will also arise during this period, so take charge of your life, reclaim your personal power and stay in integrity. You have the energy, courage & resources available to you now to accept new challenges, take some big risks and actualize your objectives. You also are experiencing a newly-found sense of self-discipline and commitment these days, which along with a little patience and follow-through, will serve you well in manifesting your desires.
With Neptune now in PISCES (2/3/12–1/26/26), you’ll be researching alternative healing modalities, clearing out any psychological cobwebs and awakening to hidden talents & psychic abilities. It’s the ideal time to update your skills, clean out the closets, get organized and make your life more functional. You may find yourself working with those who share similar interests, dreams and spiritual values.
Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you are ready to make some major changes in your personal finances, value systems & dietary habits. During this 7-year cycle, unexpected or unusual sources of income or investment opportunities could arise; financial freedom could be on the horizon. You’re likely to explore alternative approaches to nutrition, supplements and food preparation. Release old attachments & possessions and make way for the new!
Your personal & professional goals will undergo a major restructuring while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/19/17–12/16/20); you could assume more responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field. Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience(!), discipline and conscientious effort. During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — and you’re likely to get it!
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, opportunities for professional advancement or increased public visibility will begin to emerge. You’re coming into your power during this upcoming year and could take on a significant leadership role in your career or organization. Aim high! 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).
