(December 21 – January 19, ’20)
It’s the month to deal with the practical realities of life! With patience, self-discipline & follow-through, you can successfully handle business partnerships, joint finances, taxes, insurance or legal matters now. Parental matters, wills, mortgages, debts & obligations may require more attention than usual. You could accomplish much of long-lasting value on 12/21-22, 24, 25 (New Moon/Solar Eclipse), 27-28, 30, 1/2, 6, 8, 10 & 12-13. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan, make a long-term investment or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic. Use caution and good judgment in financial matters, however, on 12/30, 1/3, 7 & 10 (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse); don’t overextend your credit. Avoid impulsive purchases, especially on 1/12-13, as you may pay too much or change your mind later on.
With Mercury, your planet, in SAGITTARIUS over this past few weeks, you’ve probably been feeling adventurous, communicative and expansive. Once Mercury moves on to CAPRICORN on the evening of 12/28, you’ll be ready for serious & purposeful actions through 1/15. Things will lighten up on 1/16, when Mercury enters AQUARIUS. Your work, health, pets or volunteer projects have been demanding a lot from you lately; expect some rewards for your efforts on 12/22.
Partnership & teamwork interactions will be requiring lots of your energy from 1/3 on, once Mars enters SAGITTARIUS—your opposite sign. A significant relationship could develop or intensify during the upcoming 6 weeks. Together, much can be accomplished, but hold your horses around 1/7—make sure you’re working with each other, instead of against each other. During the first 3 weeks of this solar month, travel, communications, educational opportunities, marketing projects or physical activities can be especially enjoyable. From 1/13 on, you’ll be feeling appreciated & acknowledged for your professional or public accomplishments; it’s a great time to mix business with pleasure!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in TAURUS (on 5/15/18), you’ll be developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. It will be the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20), you will be called on to take care of business — joint finances, legal partnerships, insurance, taxes and contractual matters will require your responsible attention. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, much of long-term value can be accomplished. Responsible management of shared finances & resources will be required of you. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan or pay off a debt, make a long-term investment, prepare a will or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic.
With Jupiter now in your opposite sign, SAGITTARIUS (since 11/8/18), partnerships and teamwork interactions can stimulate much personal growth. This will be the time to join forces rather than going it alone; be on the lookout for uplifting, knowledgeable and adventurous individuals who can expand your world. Sort for those who give you positive feedback and reinforcement — and who can make you laugh!
Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month transit in CAPRICORN on 12/2, you’ll be ready to commit to some long-term alliance, investment or joint financial project. It will be to your advantage to join up with those who share similar values & ethical standards.
