(January 20 – February 18, ’20)
You’re ready to free up, lighten your load & make some radical changes in your thinking! You’ll be exploring alternative perspectives and becoming aware of enlightening ideas and information, especially on 1/20, 24 (New Moon) & 25. It’s the month to get back into circulation, connect with your grapevine & catch up on your correspondence. Classes, networking activities, relatives, neighbors and short trips will add a lively dimension to your life. Keep communications clear & take it easy on the road on 1/22 & 2/8 (Full Moon); make sure you don’t take on too much or scatter your energies in all directions.
Home, family, domestic affairs and property matters have absorbed you since 1/13, and will continue doing so for the next couple of months; you could make a lot of progress on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5. It’s a good time to repair things (especially leaks), fix up the house or heal family relationships, particularly once Mercury turns retrograde in PISCES (2/16—3/9). Make sure your foundations and base of operations are in solid, safe & comfortable condition. From 2/7 on, you’ll feel the urge to jump into some new projects, business ventures, fun & games; you’re ready to be playful and let your creativity flow!
You’ve been feeling your oats lately, with Mars in SAGITTARIUS since 1/3; push yourself forward, speak your truth and go for the gusto! Much could be accomplished on 1/25, but hold your horses on 1/26-28. Once Mars moves on to CAPRICORN on 2/16 (joining Jupiter, your planet, along with Saturn & Pluto), you’ll be seriously channeling your energy into finances, taxes, insurance or legal matters. Focus on meeting your personal needs, stocking up on necessities and making a realistic assessment of your assets & liabilities over the upcoming 6 weeks. Take care of business!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You will be undergoing a significant transformation in your personal finances, resources & value systems while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). New sources of income and investment opportunities will arise, opening up the possibility of increased abundance and prosperity. Since it’s likely that you’ll experience some intense peaks & valleys in your financial affairs during this 16-year cycle, it will be necessary to stay as realistic, grounded and debt-free as possible. Purge and recycle outworn possessions from your life to make way for the new. Your inner life will also be demanding nourishment, as emotional needs & self-worth issues will take on greater importance. This is also the time to re-evaluate your dietary patterns & investigate your nutritional requirements. Eliminate those eating habits, emotional dependencies & physical addictions that are detrimental to your well-being. Be sure to nurture yourself on all levels!
During Neptune’s transit of PISCES (2012–2026), a subtle yet significant shift in your base of operations is occurring. Old attitudes, habits, routines or attachments in your domestic life & family relationships will be dissolving, being replaced by a healthier lifestyle. You may be drawn to live near the ocean, in an ashram or within a spiritual community. You could develop an increased interest in feng shui, organic gardening, ecology or “saving the planet” activities.
Once Uranus has taken its initial steps into TAURUS (5/15/18), you could experience some sudden changes in your work environment or with your job. New technologies could have quite an impact on your productivity over the upcoming 7-year cycle. It would also be a good time to explore alternatives in health care and release any habits that no longer serve you. Opportunities for volunteer work, spiritual development or taking in a pet could arise unexpectedly.
You’ll be restructuring the way that you deal with your basic needs and generating a more mature, responsible approach to money matters while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20). Take an honest, realistic look at your assets, as well as your liabilities. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, you can build up your personal security for the long-term. During this 3-year cycle, you’ll also want to re-evaluate your nutritional needs and dietary habits − and nurture yourself!
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, it’s the year to restructure, solidify and take increased responsibility for your personal finances, emotional needs and dietary habits. Explore new sources of income & investment opportunities and uplift your prosperity consciousness! Educate yourself about nutrition & supplements, and nurture yourself on all levels! 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).
