(December 21 – January 19, ’20)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN! With the Sun now in your sign, it’s your turn to shine! Don’t hide your light – express yourself and enjoy being the center of attention, particularly on 12/21-22, 24, 25 (New Moon/Solar Eclipse), 27-28, 30, 1/2, 6, 8, 10 & 12-13. You’re running on solar power and highly charismatic this month (with half the planets in CAPRICORN)! Polish up your appearance, enhance your self-image and restructure your lifestyle; you may want to get a facial, buy some new clothes or update your professional photo. You can attract some unexpected financial windfalls this month, so think prosperously!
Be watchful that you don’t get sucked back into old habit patterns or succumb to emotional residue from past experiences this month. With the South Lunar Node (also in CAPRICORN) conjoining the Sun (12/30), Mercury (1/3) and Jupiter (1/8), it’s possible that old feelings of self-doubt, guilt, negativity or unworthiness could temporarily sneak back in. This is a test — just pull on your inner strength and remember who you are and how far you’ve come! Welcome any feedback you get from your one-on-one relationships on 1/10 (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse); you’ll have an opportunity to see yourself more clearly through the mirror they provide. Strive for mutuality, equality and teamwork in all your relationships!
Saturn (your planet) has been in CAPRICORN since 12/19/17, and during this past two years, you have been assuming a higher level of personal responsibility, authority & maturity. Your life has restructured in some significant ways as you’ve made some major commitments to your personal development and self-expression. The potent Saturn-Pluto conjunction on 1/12 could revitalize your inner child, jump-start your life in creative new directions, or possibly turn it upside-down. It is a time for significant transformation and a giant leap forward! Go for the gusto!
Your social life has been livelier than usual this past month. Friends, group activities, collaborative efforts and cultural events have energized & inspired you; do something special on 12/22! From 1/3 on, you’ll be rechanneling your efforts into tidying up your life, putting things in order and completing old projects. Clean out the closets, drawers or garage, sort, file, de-clutter, recycle or repurpose. Clear the decks! Resolve any work or health issues, upgrade your skills and make some plans for your future. From 1/13 on, you’ll enjoy connecting with extended family & neighbors, exchanging ideas & information and taking some short trips.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You are undergoing a powerful personal metamorphosis while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (since 1/25/08). As this 16-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be undergoing transformational forces bigger than you! Potent, creative energies are arising from within you, demanding a fundamental reorganization of your basic identity, appearance & self-expression. Periodic upheavals & eruptions can be expected, as you’re in a process of purging outworn aspects of your self-image & lifestyle. You’re in the midst of a rebirth of sorts, and a “renewed you” is emerging – revitalized, self-confidant & creative. This is the time for taking some risks, pioneering new concepts, starting up business ventures or enjoying romantic adventures. Encourage your inner child to come out and play!
With Neptune now drifting through PISCES (2012–2026), you’ll begin to experience a deepening psychic sensitivity & spirituality in your everyday life. During this 14-year cycle, you could develop an increasing interest in mysticism, meditation, psychedelics or telepathic communication, finding yourself more attuned to the subtle undercurrents of life. You will tend to feel more compassionate & connected with others, enjoying more intimate levels of rapport. You may also notice potent healing energy emanating from your hands. At the same time, you need to stay self-reflecting & conscious, as you can be subject to periods of confusion, self-deception, scattered thoughts, lack of focus and possible misunderstandings. Don’t just assume that others are on the same page – make sure the communication goes both ways! Put things in writing, keep your calendar current and do your best to manage your spaciness. A clean, organized environment can help clear your mind and provide a supportive space for imaginative thinking.
Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), a creative, innovative urge will begin to take you over. You’ll have the courage, resources and vision to get a new project, hobby, business venture or romance off the ground as this 7-year cycle unfolds. Take some well-considered risks and challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before! A world of fun awaits you!
While Saturn (your planet) transits its own sign, CAPRICORN (from 12/19/17 – 12/16/20, you are ready to assume a new level of personal responsibility, maturity & authority. During this 3-year cycle, you will have opportunities to further develop your innate managerial and organizational abilities. Your self-image, appearance and lifestyle will be undergoing a solid, yet significant, restructuring. This is the time to make some major commitments to your personal development and self-expression!
You will be experiencing a major cycle of personal growth and expansion while Jupiter transits CAPRICORN (12/2/19—12/19/20). It’s time to come out of hiding and allow yourself to be seen! Take advantage of any opportunity to extend your horizons, travel, study, teach, write, publish or promote yourself. Stretch your mind & legs! 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).
