Aries - January 2020
Happy New Year, Aries! As the first sign of the Zodiac, you are the pioneer of new beginnings, and all this January fresh start energy is right up your street! You will be using it to make some important choices about family life, as a poignant lunar eclipse on the 10th is a game changer in domestic issues. This is a time for letting go of the past and with that, anyone who has hurt or harmed your family or prevented you from living the peaceful home life you deserve. Significant decisions in this part of your life which were made last summer could come to fruition now, as the seeds which were sowed finally bear fruit for you. But similarly, difficult situations which arose at that time may reach a head, and it will be time to take action to make your world a happier place. The Moon opposes Mercury and Saturn at this time, hence disagreements with loved ones now are likely, and will probably centre around responsibilities and commitments.
Uranus finally shifts back into forward motion in your money sector on the 11th, and as we progress into 2020 that uncertainty around income, and general bills and outgoings, should begin to ease. Uranus will continue to precariously alter your financial status for some time yet, but with less restrictive energy flowing in, you will have more creative ideas for how to deal with any potential problems. Uranus’s sextile with Venus between the 14th and 20th is especially fortunate for meeting with people who can provide support for your plans and help you to make some extra money. With Venus currently in your house of secrets, this help may come from hidden sources or people who would rather remain behind the scenes. Mercury and Uranus also join together briefly during the days of the 17th to 22nd; this connection is a little more abrasive and may send you into an argument with a friend or colleague over money, whether borrowed or lent.
Friendships will benefit from Mercury’s witty repartee during the days after the 17th, and these last two weeks of the month are fabulous for making new friends and enjoying interesting conversations with old ones. If you have important things to say to a friend, this is the time to say them, as Mercury’s clear and logical way of putting across a point, assists communication considerably. Mercury and Mars form a helpful aspect after the 20th which is encouraging for holidaying with friend or in a large group. The new Moon also shines in this part of your chart on the 24th of January, and someone is likely to arrive in your world at this time who will have a huge impact on you. The Moon’s restless link with Uranus means that this person may befriend you in rather unusual circumstances, so be alert!
Impulsive Lilith is on the move on the 28th, and her destination is your sign, where she immediately forms a cathartic conjunction with Chiron which will last until mid-May. These next few months could be something of a rollercoaster ride, as some of your deepest, darkest urges and personality traits seem to suddenly find their way to the surface, to be revealed for all the world to see! This is all about being yourself, and the necessary healing energy added by Chiron will probably make it both a difficult and emancipating journey, as you recognise that accepting yourself as you are, and being proud of your glorious nature, is the first step on the way towards others accepting you too. Have a wonderful January!
