(December 21 – January 19, ’20)

You’re ready for a personal renewal!  It’s the month to launch or revitalize a hobby, project, business or romance.  Have fun and let your inner child out to play!  Take some risks, challenge old limits and throw yourself into creative efforts, particularly on 12/21-22, 24, 25 (New Moon/Solar Eclipse), 27-28, 30, 1/2, 6, 8, 10 & 12-13. Take advantage of the potent, productive energy available to you this month and transform some long-term dreams into reality. With disciplined, committed and conscientious efforts, you could move mountains! Give it a rest, however, on 12/30, 1/3, 7 & 10 (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse); set aside the time to enjoy cherished friends, shared meals, social activities and cultural events.  With Mercury—your planet—in SAGITTARIUS for the past few weeks, you’ve probably felt overwhelmed and stretched to the max in dealing with your domestic situation.  Once Mercury moves on to CAPRICORN on the evening of 12/28, you’ll be refocusing on your personal commitments & ambitions.  And when Mercury enters AQUARIUS on 1/16, your mind will be freed up to explore alternative solutions in work & health matters.

You’ve been expending lots of energy with a variety of interests & activities over the past month (and have likely been feeling scattered & frazzled from all of it); from 1/3 on, you’ll be rechanneling your efforts into putting your home, family & property matters in functional, comfortable condition.  Do what you can to get grounded over the upcoming 6 weeks.  Some innovative changes in work procedures & technologies, as well as progressive concepts involving health care, will be intriguing you most of this month.  Partnerships could sweeten up once Venus enters PISCES—your opposite sign—on 1/13; teamwork activities could bring you much pleasure! Image result for virgo astrology

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 SAGITTARIUS (since 11/8/18), you’ll be redirecting your enthusiasm into the domestic side of your life.  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.

Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month cycle in CAPRICORN on 12/2, 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!
