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 10th Solar House. Career issues will be clarified as the Moon waxes to fruition. The Moon of the 9th (a Lunar Eclipse) occurs in Cancer, your 3rd Solar House, bringing on long-term changes with siblings or in educational issues.
Events are moving forward very quickly this month, but you must go at your own pace. The hare makes more spectacular progress, but the tortoise wins the race.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of the planets are above the horizon this month, indicating that this is a career month – a month for outward achievement. Many planets in your 10th House of Career reinforce this. Ambitions are strong and there is good progress here.
Between 60 and 70 per cent of the planets are in your eastern sector (after the 20th this percentage increases), showing this is a month for having your way and making things happen. You are the key to your good this month. You can create conditions as you desire them. Don’t wait around for others to rescue you. It’s up to you.
The most important areas of life this month will be: religion, philosophy, higher education, foreign travel or foreign affairs, career, friends, groups, group activities and organizations.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this month are: intellectual pursuits, communication, local travel, finance, friends, groups, group activities and organizations.
The Lunar Eclipse of January 9th is basically kind to you, but take a reduced schedule that day. This Eclipse occurs in your 3rd House of Communication and Intellectual Interests and affects the Lord of that House as well.
Though it produces some upheaval and cleansing in this area, its affects are basically benign. You might find out that there’s a secret flaw in your computer or car, or that you’ve been overpaying for phone services and decide to switch carriers, students might switch schools or get new teachers. Relations with a sibling or neighbour could improve through your learning of a secret resentment or problem with them.
Though health is going to improve dramatically in the year ahead, this month rest and relax more and do everything you can to maximize your energy. The need for this is especially strong after January 20th.
Finances look super all month. January 14th and 15th look especially good. You can expect a windfall or unusually good payday those days. Though energy and vitality leaves much to be desired after the 20th, it doesn’t affect finances, which get even better. Money just comes easily and effortlessly and your financial judgement is sound.
Love is stormy this period. Be patient.
