(December 21 – January 19, ’20)

Home is where your heart is this month!  Spend some quality time snuggling up with family & close friends and make it a point to participate in some meaningful community activities.  Your domestic scene will take top priority, so make sure that your base of operations is in secure, harmonious & comfortable condition, particularly on 12/21-22, 24, 25 (New Moon/Solar Eclipse), 27-28, 30, 1/2, 6, 8, 10 & 12-13.  Find ways to stabilize your personal universe.  Home improvement projects could take up a lot of your time, energy and resources, but it will be well worth the efforts!  Flooring, carpeting, bedding or furnishings could be high on your list, along with garden & landscaping projects.  Set aside some time, however, to deal with your professional or public responsibilities on 12/30, 1/3, 7 & 10 (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse).

Things have been lightening up lately since Venus—your planet—entered AQUARIUS on 12/19. Creativity, romance & spontaneity will rule during the next few weeks; expect some surprises or changes in plans on 12/22 with the Venus-Uranus square.  Once Venus moves on to PISCES on 1/13, you’ll be ready to get back to work and take better care of your body’s needs for healthy habits, exercise & rest.  Make time for spiritual renewal and personal regeneration, especially on 1/15!  You’ve certainly been on the move lately, but will feel more settled after 12/28.  You’ve been putting much effort into handling finances, emotions and dietary matters over the past month; from 1/3 on, you’ll be rechanneling your energy into mental activity, networking & short trips; it’s time to get back into circulation over the next 6 weeks!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll be trying out different approaches in the way you take care of business.  During this 7-year cycle, financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.  Avoid surprises and seek legal counsel in business dealings & contracts.  You could receive an unexpected inheritance.

You are currently in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility, commitment and disciplined efforts during this 3-year cycle.  Lay solid foundations and replace outworn structures with solid support systems; it could be a good time to build, remodel, landscape, make necessary repairs, refinance or make a long-term investment in real estate.

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (since 11/8/18), you’re ready to get back into circulation, reconnect with your grapevine, communicate your truth and hit the road!  It will be a time for exchanging ideas and information, participating in networking activities and enjoying increased contact with relatives and neighbors.  Because your mind will be especially fertile, this would be a good year for any type of learning, teaching or writing.  Nurture your restless spirit and plan some road trips!

Once Jupiter moves on to CAPRICORN on 12/2/19, home, family & property matters will be in an expansionary mode; you’ll want to promote increased comfort, stability and security in your base of operations.  This is an ideal time to build, remodel, redecorate, garden, buy or sell real estate, move to a larger place or even relocate to a foreign country.
