( January 20 – February 18, ’20)

A creative, innovative spirit will consume you this month, inspiring the launch of a new project, hobby, business venture or romantic adventure this month.  You’ll be feeling enterprising, inventive and frisky, particularly on 1/20, 24 (New Moon), 25 & 2/7. So stop procrastinating, take some risks and go for the gusto — allow your inner child out to play!  You may need to make a course correction on 1/22, as a new wrinkle could show up.  Take others into consideration around the Full Moon on 2/8; you could get so wrapped up in your personal projects that your friends could feel left out!With Venus, your planet, in PISCES since 1/13, you may have been feeling spacey, dreamy or unfocused.  Do your best to channel this escapist energy in productive ways; exercise, yoga, dance, music, meditation or pets could provide useful outlets, particularly around 1/23, 27, 2/1 & 3.  Once Venus moves on to ARIES on 2/7, you’ll be feeling refreshed, revitalized and raring to go — it’s time to make a forward leap!  Partnerships & teamwork activities will bring much pleasure & inspiration, so align with dynamic individuals who can provide the push you need to get into a higher gear.

Once Mercury turns retrograde in PISCES (2/163/9), you’ll want to re-examine your work habits, re-evaluate procedures or reconnect with co-workers.  Get caught up with your filing, clean off your desk and get rid of any backlog or chaos.  It’s also a good time to deal with any health issues you’ve been putting off, as well as catching up on your sleep.  A new 6-week cycle begins on 2/16, requiring you to put some serious & steady effort into home, family & property matters.  Ground yourself and put your domestic scene in comfortable, safe & stable condition.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll be trying out different approaches in the way you take care of business.  During this 7-year cycle, financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.  Avoid surprises and seek legal counsel in business dealings & contracts.  You could receive an unexpected inheritance.

You are currently in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility, commitment and disciplined efforts during this 3-year cycle.  Lay solid foundations and replace outworn structures with solid support systems; it could be a good time to build, remodel, landscape, make necessary repairs, refinance or make a long-term investment in real estate.

With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, home, family & property matters will be in an expansionary mode; you’ll want to promote increased comfort, stability and security in your base of operations.  This is an ideal time to build, remodel, redecorate, garden, buy or sell real estate, move to a larger place or even relocate to a foreign country.   You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/071/5/09).
