(January 20 – February 18, ’20)

Employment & work-related matters will be absorbing you this month – experiment with alternative approaches in dealing with procedures & personnel, particularly on 1/20, 24 (New Moon) & 25. Streamline your systems and investigate new technologies or software for getting the job done more efficiently; change things up on 1/22!  Whatever needs to be fixed, healed or resolved will be seen clearly around the Full Moon on 2/8!  Make health care, exercise, rest and spiritual renewal high priorities, too – perhaps even a vacation? While your planet, Mercury, is in AQUARIUS, you’ll be more innovative in the way you go about your work & health care.  Once Mercury joins Venus & Neptune in PISCES (your opposite sign) on 2/3, you’ll be ready to devote more thought to partnerships and teamwork activities.  Only align with those who are helpful, compassionate & care about your well-being, especially on 1/23, 27, 2/1, 3 & 5.  Once Mercury turns retrograde (2/163/9), you’ll want to re-evaluate your alliances and clear up any confusion or misunderstandings; make sure your one-on-one relationships are based on honesty, emotional clarity and mutuality.

Business, insurance, taxes or legal matters can be easily expedited from 2/7 on (although you’ll want to step back on 2/13).  Home, family & property matters have required more effort than usual in the past few weeks; enlist the support of other members of your household in getting some things resolved, particularly on 1/26-28. You’ll be rechanneling your energy into personal projects, creative efforts or children from 2/16 on (and for the next 6 weeks).  With patience & perseverance, you’ll end up having much to show for your efforts!

LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’re experiencing a creative renaissance these days, with Pluto now in CAPRICORN (20082024). A powerful initiation is taking place within you, one that will inspire you to delve into new avenues of creative self-expression.  You’re ready to begin & develop new projects, hobbies, business ventures & romantic adventures; start-ups of all kinds (including children) will attract your attention.  Take some risks & by all means, have fun!  During this 16-year cycle, your inner child will be demanding the opportunity to play, initiate and speculate. You now have the energy & enthusiasm to manifest your hearts’ desire, so set clear intentions and go for it!  Committed, persistent & patient efforts will be rewarded!

You’ll be experiencing a subtle, yet significant shift in partnerships and teamwork interactions during Neptune’s transit of PISCES (20122026).  Outgrown patterns of relating to others will be dissolving, clearing the space for healthier relationships in all areas of your life.  Strive for clarity, consensus and conscious communications, so as to avoid draining or toxic one-on-one interactions.  You’ll be drawn to those with whom you sense a deep spiritual & psychic connection; seek out partnerships that are based on equality, compassionate understanding & mutual productivity.

Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you are ready to expand your thinking, extend your boundaries and elevate your consciousness.  Higher education, long-distance travel, writing, publishing or promotional opportunities could arise unexpectedly.  Global affairs, foreign languages, philosophy, religion or sports may intrigue you more than usual.

You’ll be committing yourself to new projects, creative endeavors or business ventures while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  During this 3-year cycle, you’re ready to put serious efforts into getting something significant off the ground.  Take some well-calculated risks and allow your enterprising spirit to make things happen.  It’s the time to manifest some long-held dreams!  With patient, disciplined and conscientious action, you will be able to move mountains.  Children could play a more prominent role in your life during this cycle and tune you back in to your playful, fun-loving self.

With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, you’ll begin to experience a major rejuvenation in your life.  It’s a year ahead for getting some serious projects, hobbies or business ventures off the ground; romance may also be in the cards!  Take some risks and try out things you’ve never done before.  Children could be a positive influence in your life, reminding you how to kick up your heels and play!  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).
