(January 20 – February 18, ’20)
An optimistic, adventurous spirit is arising this month, inspiring you to extend your vistas and increase your knowledge – think globally! Take advantage of any spontaneous opportunities to travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote your ideas, particularly on 1/20, 24 (New Moon), 25 & 2/7. Expect some surprises or changes of plans on 1/22. Don’t spread yourself out too thin around 2/8 (Full Moon) — hold yourself in check when it comes to communications & transportation matters.
Once Mercury—your planet—enters PISCES on 2/3, you’ll be turning your thoughts towards work & career matters. You’re likely to be called to serve in some leadership capacity or take on a more public role, especially on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5. Once Mercury turns retrograde (2/16 —3/9), you’ll be feeling a need to review your personal or professional goals and re-evaluate your priorities. Focus some attention on health matters, too.
After 2/7, you’ll be ready to give more time to friendships & social activities, which will add much sweetness & pleasure to your life; don’t jump into any new relationship or get financially involved around 2/13, however. From 2/16 on, you’ll be putting some serious efforts into joint finances, business, legal, insurance or tax matters. You could accomplish much of long-term value over the upcoming 6 weeks!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in TAURUS (on 5/15/18), you’ll be developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. It will be the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20), you will be called on to take care of business — joint finances, legal partnerships, insurance, taxes and contractual matters will require your responsible attention. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, much of long-term value can be accomplished. Responsible management of shared finances & resources will be required of you. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan or pay off a debt, make a long-term investment, prepare a will or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic.
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, you are ready to commit to some long-term alliance, investment or joint financial project in the year ahead. It will be to your advantage to join up with those who share similar values & ethical standards. 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).
