STARGAZER JANUARY 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR STARGAZERS!!!! Wow, have I been so busy finishing the book and new app for you I’m actually just getting to the January horoscopes here on New Year’s Day. Both the book (available now), and the app (available on iTunes), turned out beautifully and I am really pleased to be able to offer these. Finally catching a breath, spending the holiday with my son and so excited about my 40th birthday, coming up soon on January 8th. It’s true what they say, being a Capricorn really gets better as you age. Experience offers confidence and security you just don’t have as a younger person. And this is such an incredible year to look forward to! We have amazing support from the cosmos, and I sincerely believe a positive turn of events is going to really transform the lives of so many people around the globe. If you didn’t get a chance to read the 2016 Overview, check it out here. I chose the YUD YUD LAMED meditation (above) to begin the year on a note of release and looking forward, with incredible positivity, to all that lies ahead.

January starts in slow motion, Mercury is stationing Aquarius preparing to go retrograde on the 5th. Mercury hovers in Aquarius, and for the first week of the month it’s like were floating in space, and can see a glimpse of the future, but have to turn back to take care of unfinished business. As always, while a Mercury retrograde phase indicates a slow down in communication and commercial matters, this particular one has two very interesting features, the first of which is a notable contact it makes to the Jupiter – North Node conjunction as it conjuncts the Sun itself. Even the Moon from Pisces taps in, offering incredible emotional intuition into the conversation that is occurring now.

Jan 14. Sun - Merc

 

Jupiter is retrograde at the time of the North Node conjunction, suggesting we get an intonation of what is really set to occur June 21st, when they meet again and Jupiter is direct. The planet of luck and optimism contacting the symbolic point of our evolutionary objective twice in a year is quite amazing! We may get fortunate assistance (Jupiter) to meet those objectives or luck and prosperity is stimulated by doing the Virgo North Node work, maybe both. The better we are doing it – the more we receive. This first transit, (again, because Jupiter is debilitated) is a signal of what could potentially be. Use the information you receive to work on building positive karma towards what you want most to receive by June 21, when they meet again. Celeste Teal explains of the union “There is often a helpful person in the life who acts as a catalyst to financial or spiritual growth. Publishing ventures go well or there are opportunities here.” Of North Node Virgo she writes: “Now, you must learn discrimination about those you choose to help, practical planning and how to clearly define goals for yourself.” (From the book “Lunar Nodes – Discovering Your Soul’s Karmic Mission.)

The fact that Sun – Mercury conjunction (from Capricorn) is taking place at the same time and in a perfect trine is a really incredible synchronicity. Be prepared for a very important communication or awareness coming January 15th, what occurs is miraculous, and helps us move towards the future, even if it takes a bit longer to get there. Another big thing with the Mercury retrograde is the long conjunction to Pluto for the last week of the month. We can probe deeply for a solution at this time, conversations and thinking will be intensified, we want the truth and will not settle for anything less. While Pluto can be harsh, it also represents both our individual and collective ability to transform, so this long, maybe tough, dialogue that occurs at the end of the month does offer us the opportunity to make a breakthrough and transform where we have sought to. Mercury will be direct from January 25th.

Mars delves deep into Scorpio on the 3rd, it’s orbit slowing as it prepares for retrograde beginning April 18th at 8 Sagittarius. As mentioned in the 2016 overview, Mars sextile to Jupiter February 13th is the last significant outer – planet aspect Mars makes until August 24th, when it conjuncts Saturn. This suggests on one hand that Mars will set it’s own agenda, not being influenced by outer forces for so long, though it also indicates our actions don’t have much impact on the outer world mutually, so you basically have from New Years through February 13th to make an impression where you need to!

Mars in Scorpio has deep reservoirs of tenacity, though from this placement actions taken are likely concealed or taking place under cover. Extraordinary passion is aroused, and with Saturn no longer here holding back the energy of the Scorpion (as was true during the last transit), the full intensity of this placement can be expressed. Intimacy can deepen in this phase, as extraordinary feelings of closeness between lovers connects them to higher reality. Explore the depths of your love this month, it has much to reveal to you.

JANUARY SCOPES –

ARIES: You go deep this month Aries, as your ruling planet moves into secretive Scorpio. Meanwhile, you continue to unleash your inner party girl, especially on the 12th, and you can send mixed messages to a romantic prospect if you come across too aloof. January 8th is positive for making a commitment in a relationship you hope will endure. Your career is a big focus this month and the 15th offers a stunning culmination for you professionally. Sometimes you have to go backward before you can move forward. An old colleague may have a hot prospect for you. Wait to sign the dotted line until 30th, when all the fact and figures finally fall into place.

TAURUS: A partnership is heating up big time, Mr. T, with the 18th and the 30th serving up some of the most positive indications for your romantic life in quite some time. Skip the 5th for anything too consequential. Commitments of a financial nature can successfully be made January 8th. Make a budget you can really live with. Your frontiers are wide open, and pleasurable pursuits including a love relationship are favored on the 15th. A meeting with destiny is on the cards. From the 23rd, you become irresistible. If you travel this month, you are more likely to go to place you have been before, perhaps to catch up with old friends. The 13th – 15th is a marvelous time to plan an excursion, just be mindful of Mercury retro hi jinx.

GEMINI: Things can get a bit prickly over shared finances towards the end of the month for you, Gem, and if you have been waiting to hear back about a loan, grant or settlement, you are going to be waiting a bit longer. All the details will fall into place at the end of the month. Circle the 30th for important negotiations. You have a conversation or get information mid month that has a very positive impact on your residential situation. Clues revealed on the 15th get you on track with your destiny, particularly if you have been considering relocation. A love relationship gets more attention: the more affection you sprinkle on that certain someone, the more they sprinkle you back. If it’s all dust and cobwebs up in there, you get a strong indication why around the 8th of January.

CANCER: Your key relationships are a big topic this month, and you may find you are reconnecting or reconsidering an alliance with someone from your personal past tense, Crab Cakes. Mid month is remarkable for negotiations, particularly those related to business dealings, and the 15th is marked with the stamp of destiny. See what comes up, wait until the 30th to make up your mind, though. Your New Year’s resolutions for wellness get a boost from Venus through the 23rd. You can make your biggest strides on the 12th. From the 23rd, she brings good fortune to your partnership arena, and you may see a commitment intensify over the final week of the month.

LEO: A Full Moon in your sign on the 23rd signals closure to some aspect of your life, Lion-ess. It is the appropriate time to celebrate your victories and release that or those you no longer need. You’ve got your mind on your money and you money on your mind in the meanwhile. Key negotiations about a job or for a better position mid month can offer the kind of prosperity and security you desire. It is wise to wait until after the 25th to commit. Matters of love, affection and creative longing you so seek to express are also highlighted. You can make a commitment within a love relationship or to your personal artistic process on the 8th. For inspiration, watch Madonna: Truth or Dare. Whatever personal craft you ply, you can take from her example an unwavering commitment to her art, as well as her longevity. Food for thought…

VIRGO: Pleasure is on your mind, goddess, though things get squirlly in lover land for a minute while Mercury retrogrades through the house of true romance. If someone from the past pops back into the picture, take it with the proverbial grain of salt. Mid month is kismet, however, and events and conversations, particularly those regarding children and the future of a love affair point you in the direction of the future. Being true to yourself and values pays dividends in this phase, possibly in the form of incredible prosperity. By the end of the month you feel the good vibrations in your love life washing over you, and you find the words and passion to articulate your (kinky) desires to the one you woo. The 30th is ridiculously pleasurable. Make time for love.

LIBRA: The right course of action is to maintain a low profile, like vanish, retreat, withdraw. You find your greatest treasure within right now, and despite a nice social vibration, you are finding the value in limiting your social circle to a few, really important people at this time, you’ll see why around the 8th. An exciting if not unexpected development in a relationship (either for business or pleasure) on the 12th paves the way for a major residential development by mid month. Mercury retro can stir memories of the past, but also serves to remind you of a goal you may have had for relocation that never came to fruition. The 15th can yield a dream or premonition that leads you to a form of prosperity. Rest, relaxation and space and head clearing is the key to finding this so take your time. From the 23rd you’ll seek to make a house into a home, a decision you make on the 30th signals sweeping, necessary changes to your residence.

SCORPIO: Mars in your sign infuses you with conviction and passion to go after all your desires with a level of intensity you have unlikely felt since Fall of 2012, the last transit you got before Saturn moved through your sign. Now that you’re all grown up, you are likely to make better decisions for yourself, (hint: it’s way more awesome to use your power to CREATE what you want rather than to take it from someone else) and you get much farther with the self awareness that you possess now. A Full Moon on the 23rd sees your professional star is on the rise, you may get great news of a promotion or launch your own business. A financial cue January 8th sets the stage. A meeting or conversation mid month reveals a stunning opportunity. One more hint: it has a major (positive) implication for your love life.

SAGITTARIUS: You are in the midst of reorganizing financials this month, with very significant developments mid month that have major implications that positively enhance your professional prospects. A kismet meeting on the 15th gives you a major advantage, and the desire to make the most of an opportunity. Venus from your sign offers a nice ambience for pleasure and romance, especially around the 12th, when an unexpected meeting occurs. Mars in the area of endings for the next two months can signal a period of deep reflection and a need for withdrawal. You awaken to the truth within. Vision and intuition is heightened on the 18th.

CAPRICORN: It’s a whole lotta Cappy right now, with a brilliant New Moon on the 9th illuminating your ambitions (and there will be many) as well as the incredible prospects you have for this year. Jupiter and Pluto are close by urging transformation and growth. Contact or communication between the 12th and 15th reveal an incredible opportunity is right at your finger tips – though you might have to travel across the globe to make the most of it. By the end of the month, specifically the 23rd it all begins to come together, brilliantly and you can set off blazing that trail. Venus from your sign ushers in a highly favorable ambience for you. You feel alluring and can enjoy pleasurable experiences now. The 12th reveals an exciting insight into a residential matter that puts you quite at ease.

AQUARIUS: Strategy for the next few months will be required of you as Mars transits Scorpio. While you have extraordinary energy and conviction at your disposal towards your professional ends, with Mars retrograding back over this part of your chart in June, is it worth it to lay it all on the line if you are just going to have to go through it all over again this Summer? The answer is absolutely YES. What ever your heart is telling you to go for, go for it. The next 6 weeks are crucial to your success this year, and the work you do now paves the way for the even more amazing work you are going to do in July. Get all in and go for it! A lot is going on behind the scenes, and your intuition is strong right now. Pay special attention mid month, clues can reveal a very lucrative source of income for you.

PISCES: Mercury retrograde can see in touch with old friends this month, and a harmonious social atmosphere presides. Attend events mid month, you could cross paths with a beautiful stranger on the 15th who changes your life forever. Destiny favors this union for you at this precise moment. Mars energizes you with a positive beam from Scorpio, a brilliant harmony on the 18th taps you right into the source of inspiration. Clues will be subtle but reveal your desires. Your reputation is on the rise, and a good indication that all the hard work has (and will continue to be) worthwhile comes in on the 8th. The 30th is marvelous for creative and romantic matters, the ambience is ripe to declare your love for someone.
