(January 20 – February 18, ’20)
The focus of the month is on feelings, finances & food! It’s the month to take care of your basic needs, re-evaluate your nutritional needs & dietary habits – and raise your prosperity consciousness! Be inventive and explore alternative approaches in making, investing & spending your money, particularly on 1/20, 24 (New Moon) & 25. Unexpected sources of income ‒ or expenditures ‒ could come out of left field on 1/22! Joint finances, business dealings, tax, insurance or legal matters may require some careful consideration, however, around the Full Moon on 2/8; don’t overextend your credit or sign on any dotted lines.
You’ve been experiencing lots of intellectual stimulation, as well as a variety of activities and interactions since 1/13. It’s an ideal time to take or teach classes, connect with your network & neighbors, get together with relatives and take short trips (especially on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5). Once Mercury turns retrograde in PISCES (2/16—3/9), you’ll want to catch up on email & communications, take care of car repairs or pull any scattered thoughts together.
You’ve also been focused on tying up loose ends and completing old projects since 1/3; it’s a useful time to clean closets & drawers, sort, file and eliminate the clutter. Make the effort to put your life in order through 2/15, as a high-energy cycle begins on 2/16 once Mars enters CAPRICORN — push yourself forward, express yourself and go for what you want! With Jupiter, Saturn (your planet) & Pluto also in CAPRICORN now, you’ll find yourself in the thick of the action, taking on responsibilities, organizing activities and holding down the fort. Put some serious energy into solidifying your self-image and upgrading your appearance (perhaps new clothes or hairdo). Don’t hide your light!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You are undergoing a powerful personal metamorphosis while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (since 1/25/08). As this 16-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be undergoing transformational forces bigger than you! Potent, creative energies are arising from within you, demanding a fundamental reorganization of your basic identity, appearance & self-expression. Periodic upheavals & eruptions can be expected, as you’re in a process of purging outworn aspects of your self-image & lifestyle. You’re in the midst of a rebirth of sorts, and a “renewed you” is emerging – revitalized, self-confidant & creative. This is the time for taking some risks, pioneering new concepts, starting up business ventures or enjoying romantic adventures. Encourage your inner child to come out and play!
With Neptune now drifting through PISCES (2012–2026), you’ll begin to experience a deepening psychic sensitivity & spirituality in your everyday life. During this 14-year cycle, you could develop an increasing interest in mysticism, meditation, psychedelics or telepathic communication, finding yourself more attuned to the subtle undercurrents of life. You will tend to feel more compassionate & connected with others, enjoying more intimate levels of rapport. You may also notice potent healing energy emanating from your hands. At the same time, you need to stay self-reflecting & conscious, as you can be subject to periods of confusion, self-deception, scattered thoughts, lack of focus and possible misunderstandings. Don’t just assume that others are on the same page – make sure the communication goes both ways! Put things in writing, keep your calendar current and do your best to manage your spaciness. A clean, organized environment can help clear your mind and provide a supportive space for imaginative thinking.
Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), a creative, innovative urge will begin to take you over. You’ll have the courage, resources and vision to get a new project, hobby, business venture or romance off the ground as this 7-year cycle unfolds. Take some well-considered risks and challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before! A world of fun awaits you!
While Saturn (your planet) transits its own sign, CAPRICORN (from 12/19/17 – 12/16/20, you are ready to assume a new level of personal responsibility, maturity & authority. During this 3-year cycle, you will have opportunities to further develop your innate managerial and organizational abilities. Your self-image, appearance and lifestyle will be undergoing a solid, yet significant, restructuring. This is the time to make some major commitments to your personal development and self-expression!
You will be experiencing a major cycle of personal growth and expansion while Jupiter transits CAPRICORN (12/2/19—12/19/20). It’s time to come out of hiding and allow yourself to be seen! Take advantage of any opportunity to extend your horizons, travel, study, teach, write, publish or promote yourself. Stretch your mind & legs! 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).
