The Moon waxes from the 1st to the 9th and from the 24th to the 31st: good for starting new projects. The Moon wanes from the 9th to the 24th: good for finishing projects and tying up loose ends.
The Moon of the 24th occurs in Aquarius, your 8th Solar House. Deep psychological issues, addictions, past-life phenomena will be clarified as the moon waxes to fruition. The Moon of the 9th (a Lunar Eclipse) occurs in Cancer, your 1st Solar House, bringing on long-term changes in the personality and image. Take a reduced schedule.
A month of disruptive (but necessary) change. These changes are needed for your further progress. Forward momentum towards your goals is swift.
Most of the planets will be forward this month. By the end of the month all of them will be forward. Get those new projects off the ground.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of the planets are above the horizon this month. Being a Cancer you will never ignore family and domestic concerns, but you can de-emphasize them and focus on your career and ‘outward’ activities.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of the planets are in the western, social sector of the chart and your 7th House of Love and Social Relationships is one of the strongest in the Horoscope. Thus this is a social month. Your good comes to you through other people. Your ability to ‘make things happen’ is limited. You need to compromise and be patient.
The Lunar Eclipse of January 9th is a strong one on you, so do take a reduced schedule. Two days before and a day after would be best.
Don’t get divorced or lose your job trying to take a reduced schedule, but the rule is take care of what is necessary and reschedule the rest. Only you know what is necessary and unnecessary. This Eclipse occurs in your own Sign in your Solar 1st House.
It affects the Lord of your chart (the Moon) – one of your most important planets. This shows changes in the image, self-concept and the way you dress. You will be redefining your personality and the way you present yourself to the world. Best that you do this re-defining or others will do it for you – and that might not be pleasant.
Though health is good, impurities in the body could come up for cleansing. This is not sickness, only the body’s way of clearing itself. But if you have been careful in dietary matters this cleansing should not be severe.
Your most important areas of life in the coming month will be: love and romance, sex, personal transformation (the Eclipse is helping this along), the deeper things of life, paying off debt, making money for others.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment in the coming month will be: personal pleasure, the body, the image (again the Eclipse is helping things along), the personal appearance, spirituality, religion, philosophy, foreign travel and higher education.
Finances are status quo most of the month, but there is dramatic improvement after the 20th. Your spouse or partner becomes more generous, the line of credit increases, it’s easier to find financial backers for your projects and you succeed in helping others prosper and thus prosper personally.
Health is good, but rest and relax more until the 20th. A stalled love relationship goes forward on the 24th. At least you know where things stand.
