January 1 to 6
If you wanted the New Year to begin with a bang, then tip your hat to feisty Mars, who moves into home sign Aries on the first of the month. This planet, after spending what seemed like an eternity contemplating it’s navel - well, most of 2018 anyway - is finally moving in the right direction and in rulership. Read raring to go. Confident. Sassy. Life jolts forward and dreams ignite. The pace quickens. Energy levels are on the rise so you’ll be able to keep up. Talk about kickstarting 2019! It will reside in La Casa Aries until February the 14th.
Mars in Aries themes:
Strong gut instincts
On the second of January stable and grounding Saturn basks in the rays of the Sun. Both planets are in serious Capricorn, which will cause us to really take stock of how we want this year to pan out. Sure, its a reality check, but its vision is structured and long term. Good for increasing confidence as long as you’re very honest as to your abilities. Keep your eye on the top of the mountain and take one step at a time. Endurance baby.
The fourth of January see’s clever clogs Mercury meet harmoniously with a stationing Uranus. The latter is getting ready to shift gears and move forward once again. In the final degrees of its time in Aries, this planet of freedom, game changing and innovation is super potent, so use the fire energy to think about how you can harness your passions in order to move life to the next level. There can be some very illuminating conversations today.
On the same day the Capricorn Sun tangoes with luscious Neptune in Pisces. These two planets aligned are wonderfully creative, imaginative and potentially spiritually inclined. All in all the 4th of the month is great for ideas that change the status quo and are of benefit to others. Each one teach one.
Our think planet, Mercury, is actually quite busy this week. On the 5th of January it changes signs from optimistic Sagittarius to practical Capricorn, until January the 24th. The seeds that were born over the last few months are now planted where they take root and grow. You may not see much going on on the surface, but they will be there, doing what nature does best. Mercury in an earth sign has a habit of making things flourish.
The week ends with a crescendo on the 6th of January due to the partial Solar eclipse in rock solid Capricorn. Yes, we are back to eclipse season lovelies! This is like an O.T.T. New Moon. The effects are far reaching and will take us to early July, 2019. The Sun, Moon, Saturn, Pluto and Neptune are all involved here. Not only that but Uranus, our planet of revolution moves forwards the same day. Solar Eclipses are great for writing goals, fresh starts, instigating change and often coincide with significant events. The ambitious Capricorn energy is great for locking and loading and building strong foundations.
