Stargazer January Forecast

Palpable changes are noticeable from Day 1, with Mars having moved into Aries on New Years Eve, infusing the atmosphere with a fiery ambience unknown to the zodiac since mid March 2018, when Mars left Sagittarius. Mars is finally at home, and from Aries can direct itself into the kinds of activities it genuinely desires, and with an enthusiasm and energy level it has been deprived of for several months. Venus in Sagittarius joins Jupiter from January 7th, further amplifying the fire element, opening up to new experiences and frontiers. 

~GRAND FIRE TRINE ~

fire trine

From the 17th – 22nd, Venus, Mars and Jupiter are in lock step, as Venus conjuncts Jupiter and Mars trines both from Aries, with a Leo Moon filling out the Grand Fire trine. Excitement is palpable in the New Year, and January calls for action and initiative, the outward expression of affection, all of which is guided by optimism for a highly positive outcome. Spring comes early this year. 

Underscoring all this is the first of three squares that will be formed between Jupiter and Neptune on the 13th, plus or minus 3 days on either side. This one is more beguiling, adding confusion, but also inspiration into the mix. The issue here is getting duped, especially with all the enthusiasm the Fire Trine is generating. It’s easy to see what you want to see and not what’s really there and get carried away by extremes. It could also be a passing fancy, like a day dream, so tap the vision, as intuition yields some very esoteric insights, just remind yourself constantly it’s fantasy and illusion viewed through the opaque filter of Neptune. 

Anchoring all of this simultaneously is a Capricorn stellium including Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto, which makes it highly unlikely anything will get taken too far off course. The Capricorn Solar Eclipse on the 6th will set the tone – conjuncting Saturn and Pluto – for the year. The current astrology indicates a conflict between the hot Fire element and cold Capricorn planets, but there’s also a balance here. At it’s best this can be a very productive atmosphere where passion (Fire) has the tools (Earth) to turn an idea or inspiration into something tangible.

Mercury will be quite critical in this phase, conjuncting both Saturn then Pluto. Moving into Aquarius on the 24th, joining the Sun, which enters on the 20th, the tone lightens considerably. The ambience over the last week of the month is incredibly future focused. Sun and Mercury conjunct on the 28th, and new objectives may be formed. What is put into motion at this time will be the predominant theme in day to day activities through May 21st, when the next Sun – Mercury cycle begins. A unique and innovative approach guides the movement of the next four months. Technology or innovation likely holds a significant role in enterprises that are started now.

MONTHLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

Mars in your sign infuses you with excitement and reawakens you to possibilities that likely sidetracked in 2018. Your enthusiasm is back in a big way, and enhanced by Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, the possibilities are limitless. From the 17th – 23rd in particular, you have the conviction and optimistic mindset necessary to go after what you want. Professional obligations also have your attention, and you get news around the 6th that you have been waiting for. If you don’t like what you hear, heed the information and get back to the drawing board. 

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You have the potential over the coming weeks to make a deep psychological inquiry and understand your inner workings in ways you had previously never been able to. This process unfolds gently, mores than at other times, particularly in the middle of the month. It might be that you simply confide to someone you share an intimate connection with, your partner or spouse, for instance. Financial assistance is possible on the 22nd, though you are as well off to help someone else. Generosity can be it’s own reward. 

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

This is socially a very exciting period, and a love relationship can flourish with someone you meet at a social event, through friends or even online. Mid month is especially favored, and someone from another culture could be especially appealing to you. The 22nd is dynamite for connecting with someone who expands your horizons while also sharing your hopes and dreams. Take everything with a grain of salt, especially in regard to your profession, things are not precisely what they seem.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Eclipse action rocks your me – you or me and you axis this month, indicating significant changes to your relationship status, fated meetings occur. Cancers who realize a relationship has run it’s course may also decide it’s time to move on, though it could be six more months before you are really ready to cut the cord. Professionally you are on fire and a plumb work assignment could fall in your lap. From the 17th – 23rd you make incredible progress. The 20th is a bit more demanding. You may consider if you have what is required.      

LEO July 23 – August 22

This is a highly enthusiastic time for you, as love, pleasure, creativity and children are all such a source of joy for you. The 17th – 23rd are especially favorable for vacationing with the one(s) you love. Obligations at work could provide an obstacle here, particularly around the 20th. An assignment that needs to be completed could temporarily delay your plans. A focus on partnerships emerges towards the end of the month, and a conversation around the 28th clarifies things, especially in a business relationship or negotiation.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

It’s likely to be a more introspective period for you, Virgo. The current phase is very much a metamorphosis for you, though you are drawing incredible support and satisfaction from your most personal and even domestic life that eases your transformation. Mid month is advantageous for nurturing these contacts. Be wary of over idealizing your situation, especially within a partnership. An eclipse on the 6th could remind you just how much you love someone, or pull a new contender into your orbit.   

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

A relationship intensifies this month, particularly from the 17th to 22nd, you might meet someone in the most casual of settings, or a have wonderful conversation with someone to whom you are already connected. A gentler atmosphere prevails following the darker more sensitized mood that has carried over since last fall, lightening your perspective.  Domestic matters could be a bit more contentious, especially around the 10th or 20th. An eclipse on the 6th sends a signal that it’s time to take flight.  

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

A promotion could be in the works for you, one with a very lucrative upturn for you where you are willing to put in the work. It looks as though you enjoy what you are doing immensely, so this should not present and issue. Good fortune shines from mid month and especially on the 22nd. Action taken on a professional objective pays off this Summer. An emphasis towards where and how you live comes in towards the end of the month. A very valuable conversation on the 28th opens a new door. 

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

What an exciting month you have in store! Impulsive Mars enters your area of True Romance, recreation and pleasure, linking up with lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter in your sign. Can it get any better? The only mistake would be to think that things will remain this way indefinitely, make the most of opportunities you have. There is a financial accent, and you could be on the receiving end of not so stellar news. An eclipse on the 6th is a highly defining moment. Make cuts where they need to be made.   

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

While it suits you to remain strong in your convictions and use the forces at hand to achieve your ends, coming off too obstinate won’t sit so well with others, and you could lose the assistance and moral support of those who are more than willing to help you. A strong emphasis on your personal sphere, perhaps even a contentious energy at home, may see you reconsidering your domestic commitments. The Jan. 6 eclipse is cathartic, and after years of waiting, everything changes all at once.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

This is going to be a lively period for you socially, and even if you still have a case of the bah humbugs, mid month is exceptional for getting out there to mix and mingle with new people. While in the midst of your day to day you could strike up a fascinating love connection. Attached Aquarius should make an effort to make a small trip with their sweetheart. Meanwhile much transpires behind the scenes and the 6th could dredge up a lot of memories. Take some time for yourself. 

PISCES February 19 – March 20

You’re after it big time this month Pisces, working towards a big dream and making huge strides in your profession. It could be you have large expenditures, subsidizing your own company expenses or starting a business right now, but these pay off soon enough. By mid month and particularly around the 22nd you could see swift results for your endeavors. The later weeks of January turn the gaze inward, and an insight on the 28th could trigger a spiritual revelation.

It’s a short, but action packed month – Leo/Pisces eclipses coupled with very dynamic alinements at the end of February make for highly volatile and electrifying experiences. Changes are to be expected as well as a very brisk pace of activities.

Much of what occurs in February pivots on the Leo 22’ 28” eclipse on the 10th. A great deal of energy is generated at this moment, especially since the Moon connects to Saturn – Sagittarius and Uranus – Aries in a brilliant fire trine. Here we are able to take tempered action on long range initiatives in an innovative manner. Sun and Jupiter also tie into this alignment adding a highly auspicious overtone to our enterprises in this phase. Despite being a somewhat mild eclipse, coupled within this configuration it manages to stimulate a lot of action and initiative (fire) especially where a creative (Leo) or technical/social (Aquarius) theme can be expressed.

leo-eclipse
The early weeks of the month bustle with activity, Venus and Mars in Aries contribute to a dynamic, go getter atmosphere while the Aquarius Sun enables us to seek out new ways of doing things, and to socialize and express ideals. The entire period around the time of the eclipse is vitalizing, as the Sun connects with Uranus and Jupiter, adding a very positive spin to culminating events.

Jupiter will retrograde on the 6th, a period of contraction that will last through June 9th. As Jupiter heads backwards in Libra, we have the opportunity to integrate the growth that has occurred since last August. For those who have been swept up in a whirlwind of expansive opportunity since, you’ll find a few months reprieve (through June 9th) to make good on what has been offered and to take those lucky breaks for what they are worth. Mutually, where we may have over done things or exploited a bounty we may find shortfall. Jupiter is more of an attitude that begets prosperity, while Venus is the tangible result of it, and with both in retrograde (Venus from March 4th), there may be a belt tightening phase ahead as we revamp and reevaluate our resources, material and otherwise.

Venus begins the month already in the shadow of it’s upcoming retro phase next month, so it’s likely the financial, relational and even creative/aesthetic (Venus rules art) topics we have been working on since January 29th, and continuing through the month will be up for reassessment or renegotiation through mid May. So much of this particular retrograde cycle pivots on the Venus – Saturn square, and you may look to events or developments that occurred January 27th for clues as to the major topics that will require your attention. Something critical must be overcome in our quest to attain pleasure, love and abundance and this will be the predominant theme through April, especially on the 8th and 21st of that month. Themes of duty and responsibility resonate intensely during this period, and as any retro phase suggests, unfinished business. We have to live up to the promises we have made and this testing influence will require we resolve any outstanding commitments or fulfill karmic contracts before we can move forward.

From the 18th Sun in Pisces will offer an intuitive and sensitive ambience, the psychic realm is open and we’ll feel more emotional attunement. The Pisces 8’ 12” Solar eclipse on the 26th will link to idealistic Neptune, generating a wishful, hopeful energy. What may have been lost or sacrificed in the challenging periods that afflicted Neptune last year, can now be reclaimed, or ideals are allowed to take on a new form, as this linkage provides a chance to dream and seek the compassionate, selfless expression that was in short supply throughout 2016. For some this will take form within a love relationship, for others a project may come up through which they can express an ideal. Spiritual topics will be important, and this fresh stimulation to our humanity or taking care of those less fortunate may be a feature of developments during the eclipse.

Sun to Pisces South Node on the 22nd, followed by Mercury on the 28th will additionally reveal where endings are required. A shift in attitude or releasing ineffective behavioral patterns will be likely as we come to terms with the realization that certain circumstances no longer serve our evolutionary drives. Since Pisces influences the South Node, it’s likely that we have to reconcile an issue connected to evasive or nebulous ways in which we handle things. Situations or intentions that have been opaque now require clarity. The Nodes are coming close to completing the their tour of the Pisces – Virgo axis, moving on to Aquarius – Leo in early May. Interesting timing that the Venus retrograde shadow phase ends around the same time as this substantial shift in consciousness. We’ll be mining through some pretty dank issues between now and then, but from mid May – a really fresh start is possible. Commit yourself to deal with matters honestly and honor the work required of you in this period whether it be tangible or spiritual in it’s nature. Treasures await those who do so.

The final week is the most combust, as Mars from warrior sign Aries (it’s natural rulership,) tangles with ruthless Pluto (on the 22nd), joins forces with liberator Uranus (on the 26th, same day as the eclipse) and opposes Jupiter on the 27th. It’s a very potent phase for very rapid evolution and sudden changes. Bold action is favored right now, but watch for power struggles during the Mars – Pluto square. Where circumstances or an individual may come across as obstinate, choose to transform yourself instead. Mars conjunct Uranus will provide an opportunity to engage a new pathway to freedom and liberation. As Jupiter moves backwards, it again engages Uranus in an opposition at the beginning of next month. We’ll see developments within storylines that were stimulated towards the end of December 2016, though of course this story does not come complete until August.
