More Than a Fresh Start
A New Year—and a fresh decade—is here, waiting for you to make your mark in January! Seeds planted in December will suddenly sprout, bringing rapid change into multifaceted parts of life. Mars, planet of stamina and drive, moves into philosophical Sagittarius on January 3, coloring the month’s blooming endeavors with a thoughtful sense of adventure.
After a long retrograde phase, Uranus—the planet of innovation and rebellion—moves direct in earthy Taurus on January 10, keeping us on our toes with plenty of surprises, for better or for worse. That same day, the first of two tremendous eclipses occurs: An extremely emotional Cancer full moon and lunar eclipse challenges our emotional intelligence, pushing us to the brink with necessary endings. Foundations of life are being demolished and rebuilt, thanks to stern Saturn and harsh Pluto creating an unforgiving angle in the sky on January 12.
Venus enters ultra-feeling and intuitive Pisces on January 13, encouraging us to lean into our instincts when it comes to love and money. Innovative, humanitarian thinking rules the day when chatty Mercury enters quick-witted Aquarius on January 16, followed by the mighty Sun entering Aquarius on January 20. A second eclipse—a new moon and solar eclipse—in Aquarius closes out the month on January 24, signaling us to ditch the past completely to focus on the future. The only way out is through, but not with the extra weight of last year’s baggage.
