(January 20 – February 18, ’20)
It’s a month for clearing the decks, cleaning the closets, sorting, filing & freeing yourself up from any unnecessary clutter. Tie up loose ends and clear up any unresolved issues in work & health matters, especially on 1/20, 24 (New Moon) & 25. Perfect your skills, redefine your priorities, set some plans in motion and take time for self-analysis. Look at things from a different point of view on 1/22; clear the air! Whatever needs to be fixed, released or healed will become quite clear by the Full Moon on 2/8. Prepare yourself for a renewed cycle of vitality & self-confidence which begins on 2/18 when the Sun moves on to PISCES.
You’ve likely been feeling more sociable, loved & appreciated since Venus entered PISCES on 1/13; enhance your appearance (perhaps a new wardrobe?) and beautify your immediate environment. When Mercury joins both Venus & Neptune (your planet) in PISCES on 2/3, you’ll truly be focused on getting your act together (especially on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5). Pay close attention to the details, especially once Mercury turns retrograde in PISCES (2/16—3/9). Are you happy with the image you are projecting? Are there aspects of your self-expression that you’d like to modify, correct or clear up? You’ll be attracting those in need of care & compassion over the next month, so make sure that you’re strong & clear with yourself to avoid being drained. Stay hydrated and get plenty of sleep.
You’ve been energetic & ambitious when it comes to achieving your personal & professional goals lately; your efforts will be rewarded on 1/25! Step back a bit, however, between 1/26 & 28 – share the power. You’ll be rechanneling your energies into friendships, social alliances and cultural activities from 2/16 on. Over the upcoming 6 weeks, much can be accomplished through joining up with those who share similar commitments, interests & ideals. From 2/7 on, you’ll be experiencing an increased sense of self-worth, improved finances and perhaps a new approach to your nutritional & dietary regimen. Nurture and value yourself!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You can expect a major metamorphosis in your social life while Pluto is in CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24). As this 16-year transit unfolds, you’ll be experiencing transformation & renewal in your friendships, alliances and group associations. Outgrown relationships will periodically be purged from your life, opening the door for more stimulating companionship & pleasurable pursuits. Intense, innovative and enterprising individuals will be showing up and stirring up new activities. Friends from your past may re-enter your life as well. Opportunities for becoming involved in joint ventures, cooperative efforts & business collaborations will arise. By aligning with those with whom you share common interests and ethics, many of your long-term hopes and wishes can be realized. Nurture your artistic, aesthetic side – add some culture and creativity to your life!
An enlightening 14-year cycle in underway as Neptune transits its own sign, PISCES (2/3/12–1/26/26). You will be perceiving the world through an increasingly sensitive, compassionate and imaginative perspective during this period. A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal identity and mode of self-expression will be taking place – a heightened spirituality & psychic awareness is now developing in your everyday life. Outgrown attitudes, limiting viewpoints and self-judgments will be dissolving, resulting in a healthier, happier you. Channel the natural escapism of this transit into positive avenues, like meditation, mysticism, music, dance, yoga, exercise, boating & fishing, photography, film-making, dream analysis, healing or pets.
Once Uranus takes its first steps into TAURUS (5/15/18), you’ll be ready for a breath of fresh air. Restless, inquisitive and mentally-alert, you’ll be open to brilliant flashes of insight, metaphysical concepts and enlightening ideas − expect many “ah-ha” moments ahead! Your mind will awaken to new concepts & perspectives, and your mode of communicating with others will shift in radical directions. You’ll be breaking loose from old thinking patterns, and stretching far beyond your current comfort zone. It’s a good time to adopt progressive technologies, learn a new language or upgrade your phone, computer or vehicle. Feeling at home on the road, you’ll be taking spontaneous trips and connecting with some unusual individuals as this new 7-year cycle unfolds.
You are in the process of restructuring your social alliances and activities while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20); it’s time to shed outgrown relationships and to solidify those friendships that are meaningful & productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be drawn into collaborative projects and cooperative efforts with others who are committed to similar interests, values and visions. Much can be accomplished when you are aligned with responsible, dependable individuals, particularly those who are older or authorities in their profession. Great benefits can arise from mixing business with pleasure during this cycle!
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, your social sphere will become more positive, productive and fulfilling, and some knowledgeable individuals—who have much to share with you—will be entering your life during 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).
