Astrology Transits January 2020 – Anticipation


We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, tracks to be patched. Maybe this year to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives not looking for flaws, but for potential ― Ellen Goodman


The astrological news this month is dominated by the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 10, at 2:21 PM in New York City, NY (adjust for your time zone).  Full Moons always have the Moon and the Sun in opposition. Planets in opposition show a conflict between the two signs and houses in which they are located.  Here, we have the Moon in Cancer in conflict with the Sun in Capricorn.  Employed mothers may find that issues around working at a job or profession (Capricorn Sun) causes angst because part of you wants to be home full time nurturing your family (Moon in Cancer).  It can also bring up issues around your chosen career.  You may ask yourself: Am I being nurtured at my workplace, or am I just an unseen cog in the wheel.” 

In any case, Full Moons, whether an eclipse or not, are about letting go.  Something, someone or a situation has outlived their usefulness or relevance in your life, so adjustments need to be made.  A Full Moon Eclipse is an excellent time to work out such dynamics. 

January 1, 12.01 am  – HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Moon conjunct Neptune at 16 Degrees Pisces.  Please, please pay special attention to the effects of alcohol and drugs on your system when the Moon is conjunct Neptune.  The Moon rules our emotions and Neptune rules our need to remove all boundaries and to just let things flow.  In addition, Neptune rules drugs and alcohol.  When it is prominent in your chart or transit chart, you are especially susceptible to the effects of any and all mind-altering substances.  As long as you don’t drive impaired, Moon conjunct Neptune is a great party aspect with nice romantic overtones.  Enjoy!

Areas that are prone to flooding could find a major water event during the time around this conjunction.

On a very positive note, Mercury conjunct Jupiter at 6 Degrees Capricorn is a great day to plan any business-expansion ideas.  Mercury (ideas) blended with Jupiter (expansion) in Capricorn (serious, reality-based plans) can help you advance towards success.

The time around January 1st is also highly favored for spiritual endeavors of all kinds.  Set your intentions and see what happens in the coming months!

January 7-8: Sun Sextile Neptune and Mercury Sextile Neptune at 16 Degrees Pisces.  As William Arthur Ward said:  “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.”  Use this lovely energy to imagine your dreams into reality.

January 10:  Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 20 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn Conjunct Mercury at 20 Degrees Capricorn and Saturn-Pluto at 22 Degrees Capricorn.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipses are always highly emotional and powerful. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is an exceptionally powerful Full Moon because of the Mercury, Saturn and Pluto conjunction to the Sun (and opposition to the Moon).  Emotional (Moon) power struggles (Pluto) are possible, especially if you feel that you are being restricted or limited (Saturn) by someone or something. 

Because both the Moon and Pluto rule the collective and the masses, we could hear about global political power struggles and skirmishes around this time.  On a physical level, the pull of gravity is extra strong around all full Moons.  Because this Full Moon is opposed by Pluto, the earth may be subject to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions (Pluto rules the underground), as well as exceptionally high tides and water events (Moon opposing Sun).

The Cancer Lunar Eclipse will be felt most strongly by those with planets from 15 to 25 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Caner and Libra). Use this strong energy to understand your emotions (Moon).  What do you really want?  Who or what is standing in your way?  and How can you transform (Pluto) those obstacles into a place of power (Pluto) for yourself?

January 11-14: Sun/Mercury/Saturn/Pluto stellium in Capricorn Continues.  Uranus turns direct on at 2 Degrees Taurus.  Sun conjunct Pluto is exact on January 13.  Though Sun/Pluto aspects can bring power struggles and issues, there is an exciting upside to this powerful energy manifesting right after the lunar eclipse.  The Sun gives you the impetus to strive towards the best and to shine the light on what needs to be transformed (Pluto).  Additionally, Pluto gives you the will and fortitude to power through any obstacles.  Use this energy wisely and you could see big accomplishments as you move into 2020.

Each of us will feel more movement around us once Uranus turns direct, especially those of you with planets in the early degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Dare to move outside your comfort zone to explore new and exciting opportunities.

January 13:  Venus Enters Pisces. Venus brings a loving energy into the compassionate sign of Pisces.  Enjoy romance, spiritual pursuits and open-hearted giving during her journey through Pisces.

January 20:  Sun Enters Aguarius. Sun in Aquarius brings relief from the rather serious Sun in Capricorn energy we have been experiencing.  Groups and friends and all kinds of social gatherings dominate the scene.  Let go of some of the “should” and just enjoy the spontaneous energy of Sun in Aquarius.

January 22:  Sun Square Uranus at 2 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. You may feel at little edgy and restless during this transit.  Take a walk to clear that restive energy and let the unexpected, sometimes amazing insights flow.  Inventive insights are the order of the day under Sun square Uranus.

January 27-28:  Venus Conjunct Neptune at 16 Degrees Pisces.  Venus conjunct Neptune is joined by the Moon on the 28th when it moves into Pisces.  Treat yourself to a luxurious candlelight bath or engage in your favorite spiritual ritual.  Your intuition and creativity are high, so pay attention to psychic impressions now. 

Mars square Neptune on the 28th adds a punch to the contemplative energy.  You may be feeling tired but wired.  Give yourself permission to take some quiet time.
