“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” – Neil Gaiman


The Month of January 2016 begins with Uranus and Pluto in their last square to each other for the foreseeable future. This energy will be the strongest until approximately the middle of June 2016, though it does become weaker as time goes on. We have all felt this energy for such a long time (since 2008) that I wouldn’t be too alarmed about it. Most of us have already experienced deep changes, so the planets of change (Uranus) and transformation (Pluto) will have a diminished effect. If you are still dragging your feet about making a much-needed change, this square may be the catalyst that moves you forward.

January will be a month of retrogrades. I rather like the synchronicity of a period of review after celebrating the New Year. It’s as if the planets are saying,

Okay, wait a minute before you blindly make resolutions you don’t intend to keep. Take a minute to decide what is really important to you and then make only those resolutions that you plan to keep. I’ll help you in that by slowing down and giving you plenty of time to think things over.

Mercury turns retrograde on January 5 at 1 degree Aquarius and moves back into Capricorn on January 9. It ends retrograde motion on January 25 when it is stationary direct at 14 degrees Capricorn. This is a good time to step back and review plans. Keep a notebook of your ideas during this time. Talk to others and record their comments, etc. Once Mercury goes direct, you will have a rich collection of ideas to put into place as you move forward.

Jupiter turns retrograde on January 8 at 23 degrees Virgo. It will move backward until May 9, 2016, when it turns stationery direct at 13 degrees Virgo. If you have planets near 20 degrees of the mutable signs (Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini), pay special attention to the events of February 16 to February 24, 2016. During those dates, Jupiter will be at 20 degrees Virgo and may re-trigger the events and energy of the September 13, 2015, solar eclipse. Jupiter retrograde in Virgo may be saying:

Hey you, I want to bring you lots of blessings and abundance, but first you need to spend some time sorting things out. What do you really want? What are you willing to work hard for? What in your life is chaotic and unorganized? You really need to take this time while I’m retrograde to put things in order. It’s hard to manifest your good when you have a cluttered mind and a cluttered life. I’m slowing down to give you more time to categorize your priorities. Good luck.

Neptune and Saturn continue their square with Neptune at 7 degrees Pisces and Saturn at 11 degrees Sagittarius. I discuss this square in my newsletter at I need to clarify a little. That article mainly detailed some of the negative effects of this square. The very positive effect of this aspect is that the planets are urging us to tune into our spirituality and compassion (Neptune and Pisces) and to clarify our limiting belief systems (Saturn in Sagittarius).

You can see this square playing out in a very real and visible way when you look at the United States political scene. There is a very real (Saturn) feeling of ill will towards certain religions and belief systems (Sagittarius). At the same time, there is also a strong feeling of compassion (Neptune in Pisces) toward refugees and those of religions unlike our own. I urge all of my readers to help manifest the positive side of this very real struggle. The challenges of the Neptune/Saturn year 2016 square can be used to take your spiritual practice to a whole new level if you are aware.

Be ready to “hit the ground running” after January 24 when Mercury turns direct and the year 2016 really gets underway. Get out there and “make those glorious mistakes” referred to in the quote by Neil Gaiman.

Happy New Year to everyone.
