(December 21 – January 19, ’20)
Completion is the name of the game this month! You’ll feel committed to cleaning out drawers & closets, sorting, systematizing, filing and putting your life in order, particularly on 12/21-22, 24, 25 (New Moon/Solar Eclipse), 27-28, 30, 1/2, 6, 8, 10 & 12-13. It is an important time to redefine your priorities, perfect your skills, finish old projects and focus on making your life more efficient & productive. You will be able to accomplish a lot now if you put your mind to it, so get to work and clear the decks of whatever is no longer functional or meaningful in your life.
Pay special attention to the details and deal with any unresolved work or health issues. Free yourself up from whatever is limiting or holding you back, especially on 12/30, 1/3 & 8. Whatever needs to be fixed or healed will be seen with great clarity around 1/10 (Full Moon). Take responsibility for whatever needs to be done, and recognize that any criticisms or judgments you may feel are merely reflections of your own issues.
The presence of Venus in AQUARIUS this month will balance out the seriousness with sweetness. Take time out from your work to enjoy your friends & group activities; you’ll be feeling loved, appreciated and attractive. Expect some surprises or changes of plans with the Venus/Uranus square on 12/22. You could achieve an important goal that you’ve worked hard for lately on 12/22. Your social life gets a strong boost from 1/3 on; for the next few weeks, it will be to your advantage to join up with those who share similar objectives, interests & ideals.
Uranus—your planet—turns direct on 1/10 after being in retrograde for the past 5 months. Review time is over and it’s time to move forward with your life! Your financial situation will improve after 1/13; at the same time, you’ll want to get your diet back on track and tend to your personal needs. Once Mercury enters AQUARIUS on 1/16, you’ll be focusing again on the future; the Mercury-Uranus square on 1/18 will challenge you to change things up!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: While Pluto moves through CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24), it’s the time for you to get down to business, clarify your life’s purpose, resolve old issues and develop an expertise in your particular field. Patient, disciplined efforts will pay off! During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be called upon to redefine your priorities, get back to the basics and confront & purge any outgrown habits, attachments or limitations. Any form of self-analysis will accelerate your evolutionary progress, whether it’s with a professional counselor, self-help books, workshops or personal studies. Clear the decks & put your life in order!
During Neptune’s 14-year stay in PISCES (2012-2026), you are in a process of developing a healthier approach to financial and emotional security. Your personal values and priorities will undergo important changes as you’ll become less identified with the material aspects of the world and more interested in the spiritual. You’re in the process of dissolving old survival attitudes, insecurities & attachments that have previously limited your freedom – financially, as well as emotionally. A tendency towards self-deception or confusion in monetary matters, as well as dietary habits, requires vigilance these days; stay as conscious as possible in personal business affairs and investments.
Your ruling planet, Uranus, has been transiting TAURUS since 5/15/18, and settles down in this earthy sign for the next 7 years). You are ready to change things up in home, family and property matters; do whatever you can to create more comfort, stability & safety in your domestic scene. Free yourself up from whatever is holding you down, and explore alternative approaches in your living situation.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you will be focusing on making your life more efficient and productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’re being called to restructure your priorities, solidify your skills and complete old projects. Much of long-lasting value can be accomplished during this cycle, so get to work and clear the decks of whatever is no longer functional or meaningful in your life. Some serious self-analysis could be particularly useful during this period.
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (since 11/8/18), friendships and social alliances will be uplifting your spirits. Much personal growth could take place through cooperative efforts, collaborative projects and cultural activities. Join up with those who share your viewpoint & visions! Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month cycle in CAPRICORN on 12/2/19, you’ll be ready to refocus your attention on cleaning, sorting, filing and clearing the decks; tie up some loose ends and complete old projects. Put some positive efforts into perfecting your skills, re-evaluating your priorities and putting your life in order.
