January Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” C.S. Lewis
Happy New Year! In numerology, 2019 is a three year, bringing the attributes of creativity, optimism, kindness and sociability. The number three is associated with The Empress card of the Tarot, representing love, relationships and beauty. To me, this comes together with an eye towards creating your life in an inclusive way, with a loving heart. It’s all about your relationships this year! We are embracing the wisdom that, it’s more powerful to create together than separately.
January also ushers in eclipse season with a Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Capricorn on January 5th, and a Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Leo, on January 20th. Eclipses herald a sea-change of shifting energies and bring illumination to what needs to be transformed. This is a month to be open to looking at the aspects of your life that need more light, so you can create your future with more compassion and consciousness.
Your January Horoscope:
Aries: Your stars should come with a disclaimer: “Hey kids, don’t try this at home!” A direct moving Uranus is making its final pass through your sign, bringing home the concept: “breakthrough or breakdown”. Aggressive Mars, also in your sign, adds intensity towards getting things done. You may have to jump through some hoops, even tussle with a few foes, but it’s all in the name of liberation. Expect extra intensity between Jan 21 and month’s end. #VivaLaResistance
Taurus: You have two choices this month: You can either set aside time to dig into what’s happening in your very active subconscious (i.e. journaling, therapy, creativity), or you can choose to get the heck out of Dodge for a while. Or there’s option “C”—combining both, as in a vacation somewhere nice and quiet where you can contemplate your naval and relax into some deeper exploration. Whatever you decide, it’s the inner-landscape that’s important. #NavelGazing
Gemini: Unlike other signs, you’re receiving a pass this month, narrowly avoiding some cosmic extremes. But don’t get too comfortable. You have to negotiate a Neptune/Jupiter tussle, which may have you wondering what’s real, and what’s not. Or to loosely quote the ancient (Chinese) Zhuangzi: “Was I a man dreaming I was a butterfly…or a butterfly dreaming I am a man?” Embrace the metaphor and awaken to seeing yourself in a new context. #Metaphoric
Cancer: With planets activating your house of relationships, your New Year starts with a full dance card. The question is: Who do you want to dance with? You’re going to want to take the lead, and it’s possible that others may not be able to catch your beat. You’re not in waltzing mode…more like a passionate tango! This month may separate the “men from the boys” (metaphorically speaking) as you are looking for partners brave enough to go the distance. #MayIHaveThisDance?
Leo: The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in your sign, puts the spotlight directly on you, which, is something you normally relish. But this month you may experience some performance anxiety, especially around wanting to “get it right”. Remember, perfection is an illusion, and one that rarely serves. Don’t worry about the rough or unfinished edges in your cosmic play, instead allow yourself to be real and show your personal style. All else is, well, a bore! #MoonRiver
Virgo: How’s your creative process, lately? Or better yet, do you have one? January is a time to nurture creative activities that bring you joy. If your mind gets caught in “what’s the purpose”, look at your creativity as an active meditation that helps to center and align you. Most creative projects are essentially a form of (creative) problem solving. Rather like, your right brain is helping your left brain. Plus, you will likely discover something new about yourself! #ColorMeCreative
Libra: This month, there’s no place like home, Libra. January’s Solar Eclipse illuminates your home front, bringing energy to wanting to make change. This may be in your actual home, with some purging and redecorating, or in your figurative home, the sacred space within your being. Either way, it’s time to clear-out old energy. As you’re clearing, consider whether any negative energy is yours…or someone else’s. Energy can be tricky that way. #FengShui
Scorpio: All work and no play, makes for a very dull Scorpio! New Year, new beginnings, and this is a great time to reevaluate your work/life balance. Are they in harmony? If so, great—carry on! If not, your stars suggest making yourself more of a priority. If this feels selfish, it is. In a good way. Don’t make me use the oxygen mask as the airplane goes down analogy…instead reconsider how and where your responsibilities lie. You need some fun! #PlayTime
Sagittarius: With a planetary cluster (including the Solar Eclipse!) in your house of money and security, you’re feeling the need to keep a keen eye on your finances. Specifically--over-spending. No need to come down too hard on yourself (it is just after the expensive holidays, after all); instead think about how you can bring more balance to your spending budget. If something isn’t adding significant value in your life, you may want to do some: #CostCutting
Capricorn: January’s stellar planetary lineup in your sign is sure to bring some extremes. In what areas of your life will you be experiencing this, you ask? The intensity could show up just about anywhere, but what’s important is that you use the cosmic momentum to forge new grooves. Ones that feel more aligned with who you are and, dare I say, who you want to be. Although intense, your stars have evolution written all over them. #CosmicGrowthSpurt
Aquarius: What’s really going on with you, Aquarius? This month, you may feel submerged parts of your psyche rising to the surface, wanting expression. Communicating these feelings is important, so whether in written word, sharing with another, or in the therapist’s office, get them into the light. There’s potential healing in store. Speaking your truth is powerful, but pick your moments. Ask for Divine Right Timing to help you know when to share. #Revealing
Pisces: Your Cosmic equation for January is: Inspiration + action = manifestation. With new sources of inspiration tickling your imagination, now is a time to consider how to put them into action. Inspiration can be a fleeting muse, so grab on while it’s there. A part of the process is having the stamina to work through challenges that may arise. That’s not to say it’s going to be hard, more that sometimes it takes extra effort to make your dreams real. #DiamondsOnTheSoulsOfYourShoes
