Scorpio - January 2020
Happy 2020, lovely Scorpio! Mars is whipping your finances into shape as the new year arrives, so get those accounts in order! This is a fabulous time to think up a plan for how to make more money or conserve what you have a little more efficiently, you will feel industrious and should have plenty of energy to work on enhancing your income. You may find yourself embroiled in more than your usual share of debates or complaints over money; in part this will be because you are feeling more proactive about what is rightfully yours. It can also be rather a possessive time, so it’s not the best of transits for loaning out money or personal items to friends. Mars and Neptune form a rather difficult aspect after the 17th and into the first week of February, which will create an extravagant atmosphere around spending on social get togethers and leisure activities. Hedonistic energy is permeating social interactions here, and you may not have the money to fulfil all your desires!
The Sun spends the first three weeks of January in your house of communication, where he will have you feeling confident about expressing your ideas, and keen to show the world what you know. You are more likely to decide to continue your education at this time, or to retrain in your work. The Sun joins up with Mercury and Neptune between the 3rd and 16th, a fantastic period for creative writing, public speaking, and generally expressing your imaginative ideas to those who can help you achieve your dreams. This is a highly sensitive time in which psychic experiences are likely to be more prevalent too. The Sun’s connection with Saturn from the 8th to 17th could take you into some serious and practical conversations with neighbours and others in your local community about how you can improve your neighbourhood. You may also be called upon now to support a sibling who needs advice about money or relationships.
January’s full Moon on the 10th is also a lunar eclipse, and this is a time to take stock of your spiritual development and work out what you want from life in 2020. Everyone else in your world may suddenly seem to be chasing fruitless dreams now, as you strive to make sense of life, and it’s really important that you take some time to think about your own path and personal development. The new Moon on the 24th turns your attention to domestic affairs, and signifies changes in your home life. You may welcome a new family member or hear news of a pregnancy; it’s also a wonderful time to renovate your property, buy or sell a home, or have a family get together. Uranus locks horns with the Moon here, creating possible tension from stubborn partners whose behaviour may seem self-centred; leave them to their own devices and focus on enjoying time with those who are more accommodating.
Last but definitely not least in January, a highly romantic connection between Venus and Neptune in your house of love, could send you an intense new love relationship after the 23rd. This person will rock your world with their affectionate words, and you might feel as though you have finally met the one. It is likely to be a wonderful experience, but it is a very idealistic combination of energies which might prevent you from keeping your feet on the ground. Take care not to make any important decisions here until the aspect’s influence wanes in early February; you will know for sure then if feelings are real. Enjoy your month!
