Saturday, January 13 - Friday, January 19

This week continues the focus on your health. Health is the real wealth, though too often we don’t realize this until we lose it. Your daily routines, your rituals, what you do for work and when and how: this is what the stars are pointing you towards right now. If that sounds too unglamorous, there is a more fun way to think about this. The sixth house is also the sector of ritual and magic. Those mundane things you do, the yoga in the morning or the decaf tea at night, are actually setting you up to lead a powerful life. This is the benefit of living well sustainably versus managing crises as they crop up. You stay conscious. You move with the breathing of the universe, in and out. Good things flow to you more easily.

Mars and Jupiter are still together at the very base of your chart this week, filling you with energy and passion for a new direction. When Venus and the sun square Uranus from Capricorn, on Saturday and Sunday respectively, you’re being nudged down that path. Tuesday night’s new moon in Capricorn is a wonderful time to decide you’re going to make these good habits last. Set intentions for resolutions you can keep, and map out how you’re going to get it done. Saturn in Capricorn is a three-year opportunity for you to fully augment your life, from the details on up.

Later in the week, you’re attention will turn to your significant relationships. Who’s going to help you stick to the plan? Venus enters your partnership sector on Thursday, starting a lovely period for both romance and friendship. On Friday, the sun follows, heralding the start of Aquarius season. We’ll no longer have such a major stellium in Capricorn by the end of January, but Saturn will remain to help you manifest these new routines. Also on Friday, asteroid Ceres will be conjunct the north node of the moon in your sign exactly. This combination asks you to nurture yourself. Invest in self-care; mother yourself a bit. Opposing Ceres is Juno on the south node. Anything that is not serving you in relationships will become obvious. You need people who are happy for you when you make better choices. Spend your weekend with those who genuinely care.

Saturday, January 6 - Friday, January 12

Mars and Jupiter are very close together in Scorpio this week, and as we enter the weekend they’re still squaring the moon’s nodes. It’s a week for moving purposefully in the direction of your calling or vocation. Your best relationships are with the people who genuinely celebrate your success, but you already knew that. On Saturday, Mercury makes a trine to Uranus and gives you a brief boost—maybe a creative idea, a fun activity, or a romantic message. Do something you love with the people you love this weekend.

It will be nice if you can relax over the weekend, because this week promises to be all about work and taking care of your health. Venus and the sun are in perfect alignment from Monday through Thursday, indicating that your work game will be on point. On Tuesday, you might be very aware of your own power, and of the ways in which you’ve transformed your health since 2008. If anyone else tries to power-trip you, dodge the move gracefully and let them know that you can’t be outdone. Well-being is your everything as you begin this next cycle. On Thursday, Mercury joins Saturn in Capricorn in a conjunction that will be exact early next Saturday morning. Just another member of the stellium that’s putting your attention on your daily routine. Keep an eye out for information that could help you commit to your goals and increase your efficiency during this Saturn cycle.

December 30, 2017 - January 5, 2018

It’s Capricorn season, which for you means a focus on your daily routine. You’re getting organized with Saturn and Co. (Lilith, Venus, the sun, and Pluto) in Capricorn now. Saturn has started you on a three-year cycle of hard work and achievement. But this is just the beginning. This week you may be feeling more introspective than usual, especially with Monday’s supermoon in Cancer, in the most private sector of your chart. Venus is with the sun in Capricorn when the full moon is exact (and opposing the sun, as full moons always do.) It’s also creating a grand trine with Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. This New Year’s is a good time for private spiritual and emotional insights, for addressing your wellness in a holistic way, or for appreciating and making art. Spend some time at home or with a few close loved ones instead of going to a big party if you don’t feel up to it. See what the tide brings in.

Uranus is still in your fellow fire sign of Aries, so when the planet of change stations direct on Tuesday, you may have a flash of insight about your current journey. It’s all about your healing for you right now. If you’re working hard right now, do it effectively and make sure you still get your rest. Seek out your preferred healing techniques. You’re developing physical and mental strength that will help you in your endeavors. Saturn in Capricorn is like a dose of stoicism. The four moral virtues of the Stoics were wisdom, courage, justice, and temperance. It’s all rather dramatic if you think about it. Play the virtuous philosopher for a while. Mars squaring the moon’s nodes this week challenges you to keep your eyes on the prize. You’ll feel the most tension here towards the end of the week, as this aspect is exact on Thursday. You’re only just beginning to show them what you can do.

January 2018

You begin 2018 hard at work. You have a full deck of planets in the Boss sign of Capricorn, in your house of daily routines. Saturn’s move here on December 19, 2017 started you on a three-year cycle of slow, steady progress towards your goals. Think uber chic time management. You have an opportunity to run your empire more efficiently. With Saturn out of your creativity sector, you’ll be having a lot more fun, and you can channel all that talent straight into profit if you so desire.

You don’t need to rush into this. Saturn likes to move methodically. Allow yourself to be more introverted as the year begins. With Mars and Jupiter both squaring your sign from Scorpio, you’re energized to investigate your memories. How has the past influenced your direction? Where can you put down deep roots now? Ceres on the north node of the moon in your sign is helping you to nurture what makes you unique. Keep your fragile new beginnings to yourself before you place them in the spotlight. You’re more vulnerable than most people think. The full moon in Cancer on New Year’s Day is a wonderful one for dreaming, doodling, and introspection. Let go of any hidden fears that have been holding you back. If you’ve been working through all of your vacation days, take a rest. You may feel emotional as you remember all that you’ve been through. It’s ok not to be sunny and smiling all the time.

On January 2nd, Uranus stations direct in your house of journeys. After this, there are no planets retrograde until March 8th. You have three months to move forward with your plans. On January 4th, when Mars squares the north and south node of the moon exactly, you’ll feel some tension propelling you towards an achievement of some kind. With the sun traveling through Capricorn in the company of beautiful Venus, it may well be an achievement at work. This is also a wonderful month for getting serious about your health. It’s part of the whole boss babe efficiency thing. Health is the foundation of wealth. Clean eating and muscle-building fitness suit you now. When the sun and Venus meet Pluto on January 9th, you’ll be reminded of how your day-to-day life has transformed in the past decade. Now you’re in charge of guarding that transformation, building strong habits that will serve you in the life you want. Jupiter’s sextile to Pluto this month, exact on January 15th, supports you as you work out the details of your vision.

The new moon in Capricorn on January 16th is actually a wonderful time to make New Year’s resolutions related to your new routines, health, or work. At the beginning of the month, you’re planning, reflecting, and basically hermiting in preparation for this new lunar cycle. Set any big game-changing goals in the first three days after the new moon, and make sure you break it down into smaller pieces. Saturn in Capricorn can help you accomplish this in a practical way.

Your relationships come to the forefront towards the end of the month. Venus enters your opposite sign of Aquarius on January 18th, the sun follows on the 19th, then Mercury on the 31st. A partner or good friend may be able to help you with your goals. Consider getting a buddy to hold you accountable for your resolution. You’re working hard, so it’s also just good for you to spend time with loved ones in Aquarius season. You could use the support. The total lunar eclipse in your sign on January 31st is going to be major for you. This is part of the eclipse cycle that was in effect in February and August 2017. It reflects something of what happened then. You are determined to shine, no matter what. Light the way for others.
