January 7 to 13
Well, this week is definitely about power. How to get it, how to hold it, how to wield it. The trick here is to not get entangled in other people’s delusions of grandeur or hidden agenda’s. Folks may be prickly, defensive or overly opinionated, especially early in the week. Differences of opinions could easily turn into heated discussions so remember the motto “Keep calm - insert: have a cup of tea, go for a run, have a bath … whatever works right? - and carry on”. Are we clear? Crystal.
On the 7th of January sensual Venus moves…finally! … into easy breezy Sagittarius. Worn out from the deep soul diving re love and finances of the last few months? Things just got a little, lighter. Fresher. Cheekier. I always think of Venus in Sag as that feeling you have after a really great yoga class, beautiful swim or a gorgeous dance. You’re invigorated, more alive and maybe even a little flirty. You’re optimistic and refreshed. You feel more prepared to get out there and live as you’re strong and present. Use this energy to connect with those of a like mind, explore and make your world a little larger. She’s in the sign of the Archer until February the 5th.
On the 8th of the month our think planet Mercury, newly in steadfast Capricorn, locks horns with Mars in Aries. And I mean literally locking horns. Mars is in rulership here so he’s not taking any prisoners. But Capricorn energy is cautious and calculated so he’s a formidable opponent. Expect dynamic conversations, rash decision making and temper tantrums as a likely result. This duo is wonderful for giving your opinion in a very clear, no holds barred manner, but just make sure you’re not going too o.t.t. Less is more today. Also watch the lead foot whilst driving.
On the 11th of January The Sun, also in the sign of earthy Capricorn, joins forces with powerful Pluto. The next time this happens will be in early 2020. This is an intense time when we ask ourselves “why am I here?’, “what is my purpose?”. We need to really dig deep to uncover the truth. Pluto is great at excavation mind you, so ask away. But be prepared for a radically honest answer. Don’t get dragged into power struggles and keep in your own lane, eyes on your destination.

Stepping into your power
Chatty Mercury once again meets up with a big shot planet on the 13th of the month. This time it is serious Saturn. Actually we may be feeling decidedly un-chatty today. Our powers of observation are greatly honed as is our ability to discard frivolous or useless information. Mind you, conversations can grind to a halt under this transit or anything associated with Mercury. Telephones, the internet, means of transport, deliveries etc. This is a major reality check but a necessary one. It can help you anchor a plan and give it legs.
On the same day expansive Jupiter becomes ensnared in Neptune’s long tendrils. This is the first of three meetings for these planets for 2019, therefore an astrological signature of the year. Jupiter loves to push boundaries and explore the realms of ideals, our potential and the seeking of wisdom. It thinks globally. Neptune is spiritual, soulful and creative. It can also blur lines and dissolve boundaries. See the dilemma when these two meet up in a tense aspect? We have the need to create change and explore unchartered territory but may not have the appropriate information or vision to carry it forward. Hell, we may not even have the energy! This can bring disillusionment or disappointment. Clashes of ideologies, ethics and morals abound. Avoid dodgy schemes,gurus and righteousness at all costs. Live and let live. Great for taking time out for healing, creative pursuits and reconnecting to your spirit so please do so.
Enjoy! Wishing you a beautiful week. See you on the 14th! xoxo
