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 7th Solar House.
Love and romantic issues will be clarified as the Moon completes its cycle. The Moon of the 9th (a Lunar Eclipse) occurs in Cancer, your 12th Solar House, bringing on long-term changes in your spiritual life.
With 80 to 100 per cent of the planets moving forward and with the pace of activity greatly speeded up, it’s going to be hard for you to slow down and rest and relax. Yet this is precisely what you need to do – especially after January 20th.
Don’t try to compete with anyone now, or allow others to compare you to others. Set a few important goals (not a whole lot), focus on those and be content to let the world pass you by for a while.
The race is not with the swift. Your energy needs to be maximized and focused on things that are really important to you. Let other things go. In the coming months you’ll have plenty of time to catch up.
The planetary power makes an important shift to the upper half of the Horoscope this month. Thus career issues are becoming ever more important. Let go of family and domestic responsibilities where possible – handle them with a minimum of fuss.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of the planets are in the western, social sector of your chart – including your Chart Ruler, the Sun. Thus this is not a time for forcing issues or indulging in extreme self-will. This is a time of compromise and consensus and for allowing your good to come through others.
The most important areas of life this month will be: health and work, love and romance.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment will be: spirituality and charitable activities, friends, groups, group activities, organizations, sex, personal transformation, prospering other people, the deeper things of life, depth psychology.
The Lunar Eclipse of January 9th is kind to you, but it won’t hurt to take a reduced schedule that day. It might not be so kind to others you are dealing with. This Eclipse affects the spiritual life and your spiritual path.
You could change meditative techniques or teachers in the next few months as you see the flaws in your present practice. Perhaps you change your charitable activities from one organization to another. Your dream life during this period (a few days before and a day after) shouldn’t be taken too seriously, as most of it is flotsam and jetsam stirred up by the Eclipse.
Love and social activities seem active and good. You are the pursuer and the aggressor in love. You are bending over backwards to please your beloved, or to attract someone new. Singles find romance suddenly and unexpectedly – out of the blue. On-line romances are likely. Friends play Cupid. A romantic opportunity arises with a friend.
Finances are especially good after the 10th. Like love, money comes suddenly and unexpectedly. Your financial situation can change dramatically (for the better) in an instant. Again, other people and social relationships are the catalyst for profits.
