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 3rd Solar House. Intellectual and educational interests get clarified this month. The Moon of the 9th (a Lunar Eclipse) occurs in Cancer, your 8th Solar House, bringing on long-term changes in your spouse’s or partner’s financial affairs.
With the planetary momentum forward and many good aspects to you, this is a fast-paced, active and successful month. Great progress and achievement happens. Get those new projects off the ground now.
Most of the planets are in your eastern sector of the self and personal independence – thus this is a month for creating conditions as you like them. But this is not a month of total independence, as Jupiter, the Lord of your Chart, is in the 7th House.
Others are still very important to you and you are going out of your way to please them but you have more independence than you think. Those with whom you are involved socially can’t push you as far as they think they can.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of the planets are below the horizon of your chart showing that this is a period for dealing with family, domestic and psychological concerns. This is becoming ever more important. Find your point of emotional harmony and function from there. Get into feeling right, then ‘doing right’ will follow automatically.
The Lunar Eclipse of January 9th is kind to you. It affects the income of your partner and monies due you from estates, legacies, insurance claims or royalties. Significant change – perhaps through an upheaval – is happening in these areas. Your debt situation can change, too – if you are debt-free, you might borrow for a constructive purpose. If you are in debt, you see a way out.
The heavenly Grand Trine in Air that happens on the 15th and 16th is very favourable for you. It is favourable for the world in general, but especially for you.
It brings well- being, personal pleasure, creative ideas and a lot of talk. Write those letters and papers, and make those calls you need to make. This is an especially good period for students, writers and sales and marketing people.
Finance is strong early in the month, but gets more difficult after the 20th. Overspending could be a cause of the stress. You will earn, but you will have to work harder for it. Money comes the old-fashioned way – hard work.
But assets you own could increase in value and there is good fortune from buying, selling and trading. Your partner, spouse and social connections in general are adding to the bottom line and bringing opportunity.
Saturn moving forward on the 24th is an important financial happening. It shows that a long-stalled deal or opportunity starts to move forward again.
Health is good this month. Love looks hot, especially after the 20th. Love is close to home, in the neighbourhood and perhaps with a neighbour. Serious romance has either happened and is deepening, or is about to happen.
