The Mercury Retrograde ends on January 8th, unlocking energetic potential that has been in a process of refinement. Time to act on your new truth. Jupiter in Libra is still tangoing with Pluto in Capricorn, adding intensity to transforming our lives, while offering some positive, expansive ju-ju. Cosmic lovers Venus and Mars in Pisces, are dancing through our dreams and imagination inspiring us to think big. Saturn in Sagittarius challenges Venus and Mars mid-month, keeping it real, and grounding our dreams in reality.
Full Moon in Cancer, Jan 12th: The full moon in its native sign of Cancer, adds lunar intensity—heightening dreams, emotions and the subconscious realm. Speaking of intensity, this full moon is opposite transformative Pluto, so expect big moments as you face the truth, especially around the relationships in your life.
New Moon in Aquarius, Jan 27th: New moon, new beginnings, and the Aquarius new moon is ripe with possibility. Innovation and insight are highlighted, as is a sense of revolution. Change is in the air, big time, and there’s momentum to breakthrough old structures and ways of being. But don’t overdo. Change is great—but you want to make sure it is sustainable.
Your January Horoscope:
Aries: You thrive on change, Aries, but this month consider balancing your desire for action with your longing for personal satiety and peace of mind. Venus and Mars dancing through your house of dreams and the imagination, encourage you to give your imagination free reign to explore. Listen closely to higher promptings, they will likely come in bursts of inspiration, and want your attention now. New Year’s Resolution: #ToImagine
Taurus: Cosmic Gardening! Your stars are being “watered”—which is lovely for you, as water is manna to your earth. Venus and Mars in Pisces and the Cancer Full Moon, are liquid cosmic fertilizer to your sphere of influence, opening new doors. Do not hesitate to speak up and standout. Others are looking to you for inspiration. Grab the wave before the New Moon on the 27th, because that’s when things may get wonky. New Year’s Resolution: #ToInspire.
Gemini: With an abundance of cosmic water, you Gemini, an air sign, may feel like the Wicked Witch of the West, when Dorothy threw a bucket on water on her: “I’m melting…” You’re no wicked witch, and you’re not melting, but you are being tempered. Your stars are stimulating some big career moves, but they need to be in alignment with your highest integrity. Otherwise it’s just smoke and mirrors. New Year’s Resolution: #ToAdapt
Cancer: Moon Baby! January’s Full Moon in your sign is especially auspicious, for she is illuminating a Bigger Picture. I know you like to stay close to hearth and home, but now is a time to dig your explorers hat out of the closet, shake off the dust and book a ride to whatever inspires. This may be a trip, a class, new group, or creative project—wherever you can commune and explore with other Big Picture People. New Year’s Resolution: #ToExplore
Leo: Your stars are illuminating the deep, dark places that house (perhaps, secretly?) your inner-most dreams and desires. What comes to mind is the immortal Jacques Cousteau, looking tres chic in his deep sea diving regalia, as he descends downward….deeper and deeper. Did I mention he/you also have a flashlight and oxygen line? There’s great treasure in your dark spaces, if you’re brave enough to explore. New Year’s Resolution: #ToCommune
Virgo: You’ve been busy, working hard to make your dreams tangible, real—and profitable! Congrats! In the process, you may have disconnected from your daily life and relationships. January is a time to remedy the situation. First: Be more mindful about taking care of yourself (airplane/oxygen/mask etc.) Secondly: Reach out to those you love--they are the sweet balm that you, and they are looking for. New Year’s Resolution: #ToConnect
Libra: It’s complicated! Your stars are sending mixed messages: On one hand, you have expansive Jupiter in your corner. On the other hand, it’s doing a fierce tango with Pluto, forcing some greater realizations about what you’re doing with your life. Don’t stress. Embrace the mystery, the cosmic quagmire that is your life now. The more you surrender to the unknown, the more your life will move forward. New Year’s Resolution: #ToTrust
Scorpio: With planetary lovers Venus and Mars waltzing through your house of creativity, romance, children and…gambling, time to put on your “anything goes” hat, shake off your inhibitions and have some fun. Your inner child wants to play! And if said play involves a trip to an exotic location, or a new adventure you’ve never explored before--go for it! In other words: Life’s a mystery, don’t take it too seriously. New Year’s Resolution: #ToPlay
Sagittarius: Drama on the home/family front may arise, as old “issues” regarding unfulfilled expectations bubble to the surface. All the better to acknowledge—and move beyond. Time to forgive and forget. Expect a profound realization (or two!), as the Cancer Full Moon illuminates what needs to be transformed, and what needs to be left behind. Your greatest gift? Your buoyant optimism—it will never let you down. New Year’s Resolution: #ToKnow
Capricorn: The Pluto-Jupiter square continues to niggle, both forcing and inspiring you to get clear about what you want to achieve in this lifetime. No small potatoes! Don’t get your horns in a twist. First—you love a challenge! And Second--your answers are there, waiting for you. This month clarity will come in unexpected and delightful ways. Permission to receive Capricorn! The more open you are the better. New Year’s Resolution: #ToReceive
Aquarius: New moon, new beginnings! The new moon in your sign on the 26th, sets the stage for January, providing cosmic momentum for pursuing new opportunities. The Money Gods are in your corner, but they require you to fully embrace your value, especially regarding your gifts and how they translate to your career. Don’t underestimate yourself. The more you value YOU--the more expansion you will find. New Year’s Resolution: #ToAct

Saturn continues to ride your star, requiring you to get real about…well, just about everything. Time to get clear about what’s truly possible, and what’s just a flight of fantasy. A fine very fine line, indeed!. New Year’s Resolution: #ToNegotiate
