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 5th Solar House.
Creative and children’s issues are clarified as the month progresses – for singles a love affair gets put into context this month. The Moon of the 9th (a Lunar Eclipse) occurs in Cancer, your 10th Solar House, bringing on long-term changes in the career. Take a reduced schedule.
The month starts off a bit stressfully, but if you hang in there everything will work out and things will fall into their proper place. This is going to be a good year, but even in the best of years there are bumps on the road.
Most of the planets are below the horizon of your chart, indicating an emphasis on home, family and domestic issues. Getting the home in order and setting family relationships straight is the top priority.
But you won’t be able to ignore your career either, as the Lunar Eclipse of January 9th occurs in your 10th House of Career and impacts on the Lord of your 10th (your Career Planet), the Moon.
There are various possible scenarios as a result. One, the search for emotional harmony and your desire to do right by your family causes a change in your career – which the Eclipse only confirms.
The reverse could also happen: flaws in your present career path or present situation make you realize that you want greater personal happiness and a richer family life – thus a change in career.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of the planets are in the western, social sector this month. This should suit you just fine. It means greater social involvement, achieving aims through the cooperation of other people and through the social graces. It means achieving consensus and finding the points of common interest. You are in your element and letting your social genius have full expression.
There is also a heavenly Grand Trine formation on the 15th and 16th which is very harmonious to you. In the coming months this Grand Trine will occur for a few days in the month and you should take advantage of it. It enhances your communication ability, mental faculties and general sense of well-being. Fortunate things will happen for you. Good, workable ideas will come that solve problems.
Mind your phone bill and be careful about wasting energy on idle gossip. This is a good time to schedule meetings or write those letters that need to be written.
Your most important areas of interest this month are: home, family and psychological issues, love affairs, creativity, children, and haying fun, health and work. Your paths of greatest fulfilment this month are: career (though you must pursue it with balance and. with an eye towards your overall happiness), health and work, religion, philosophy, foreign travel and foreign affairs.
Earnings are soaring this period – especially after, the 20th. Be careful of overspending. Your pursuit of earnings could cause you to ignore your personal desires; this would be a mistake.
Your personal appearance shines this month.
Seldom have you looked more glamorous or sexy. Love finds you as you pursue your financial goals, or with people involved in your finances. There are plenty of casual love opportunities available. As we mentioned earlier, earnings come through social grace and social connections. Your partner or spouse is very supportive.
