Aquarius - January 2020
Happy New Year, Aquarius! Let’s start 2020 as we mean to go on, and get those new year resolutions locked in now! The new Moon on the 24th of January in your sign is a lovely way to make a start, offering you opportunities to try all kinds of new activities. Some conflict from Uranus could put disgruntled family members in your way, who feel intimidated by the new you. They will need to fall in line, because this is your time and you will be making the most of it! Mercury is also in this part of your chart from the 17th, supporting you to order your thoughts in important discussions; his sextile with Mars during the last ten days of the month will send you lots of chances to make new friends or join clubs and societies where like-minded others share your goals and values.
Jupiter recently made a significant sign change and is now in a new area of your chart, focusing on your psychic and spiritual development. This will pretty much be a priority for you for the remainder of the year, and as one of the most humanitarian signs of the Zodiac, reflection for you is likely to concentrate on how you can contribute to making the world a better place to be in. Charitable concerns could occupy your time, and you may decide to volunteer for work where supporting those in need is key. Whatever you do, your choices will be closely linked to adding some meaning to life and rediscovering the reason why you are here. Jupiter does conjunct the Moon’s karmic south node during the days up to the 24th of January, and south node connections can be rather turbulent, as destiny feels a need to create chaos and disruption around us in order to make us sit up and listen. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself struggling initially with your psychic work, as life seems to get in the way. The path will be clearer as February approaches.
Mars lingers in your career zone until the 4th, allowing you time to tie up any unfulfilled ambitions which have lingered since December. The lunar eclipse on the 10th is also set to give your everyday working world a shake up, as routines, departments, colleagues and job responsibilities are all turned around. Despite their reputations for pioneering change and forward-thinking, Aquarians don’t really like to have key elements of their world disrupted, hence you may struggle to adapt to the changes for a little while. Venus in sextile with Uranus from the 14th to 20th provides opportunities for some flexible working from home; this work is likely to involve something highly original and creative, and is the way forward for you in 2020, as you pay more attention to your own dreams and fantastic ideas.
Communication in its many forms remains under the scrutiny of Chiron throughout the month, and there is all kinds of healing going on here, as you reflect on times when you have felt misunderstood, overlooked or uneducated, and put the resulting feelings of intellectual insecurity to rest so that you can embrace your wonderfulness and finally move on. He will be joined on the 28th of January by Lilith, and these two mismatched creatures will immediately form a conjunction here which will last until May. Lilith’s energy is a whole different thing, she will be encouraging you to express yourself exactly as you wish, without reservation or self-doubt, and finally being totally yourself is likely to be an intense and cathartic experience which you will relish. Have a fabulous month!
