Tip of the Week:
Merry Christmas! I hope you were able to enjoy the spectacle of Jupiter and Saturn, dubbed the ‘Christmas Star’ in exact conjunction on December 21st, an event that only occurs about every 800 years! Such wondrous moments aside, more importantly, a new era has officially begun. Based on the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn occurring in Air Element Signs, we have entered a whole new period of human evolution. The last time such a new era began was July 17, 1802 when these two gas giants, symbolic of society and larger social, economic, and political trends, conjoined. This began an era emphasizing the Earth Element, which is symbolic of science, engineering, construction, and material values in general. Take a moment to reflect on how this applies to the past 220 years. Now, the emphasis on Air Element signs centers on communications, relationships, social politics, law, justice, rights, and freedoms. For now, the combined influences of the Solar Eclipse, Winter Solstice and this historic conjunction will manifest as measurable change, personally and collectively.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)
Circumstances of late, which are actually synchronicities are directing your focus to the future more than ever. Financial considerations are playing an important role, yet things are not as settled there as you would like. To this end, you are much more sober and serious. Still, you are enthusiastic about the prospects and are eager to dive-in and are willing to take a few calculated risks.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
You are keen to step back and carefully consider the future. Of course, it is not all in your control, yet you are determined to do what you can. But, you want to do your homework first. Actually, you have probably been doing some research for the past few weeks already. Among other things, you have probably been gearing up and building your resolve to go big.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
You have entered the last stages of a deep process of change. The deeper metamorphosis has occurred and now a few more minor or follow-up cycles to go and you will be through. These next phases will continue until about January 10. Among other things, you have learned that you cannot please all the people all the time and you may notice that you are done trying with certain people.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
A new and powerful cycle of change has begun. It may well include financial matters. Becoming thriftier to make every dollar count is likely, or at least to carefully consider where you can best direct your money. This cycle will take on something of a revolutionary tone by mid-January, albeit guided by sober and practical evaluations.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23)
Despite the festive season, you are happy to stay busy and to mix business with pleasure, if necessary. There is also a creative perk inspiring your focus. The goal is to increase your audience somehow. This includes deepening your commitments, especially to projects that you have yet to finish and other ones that have been waiting their turn.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22)
You are in a creative yet sober mood. You want results and returns for your efforts. A learning curve is implied. While the going, in this regard, may not be fast, inventiveness and originality are highlighted. There is also an emphasis on nature. But it asks for moderation, so avoid risky ventures. Do look to the future and orient your focus accordingly, yet advance with prudence for now.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You have all but broken through the dark night that has tested your courage and resolve. Like an early morning dawn, you can see and feel the light of the new day, yet it may take a bit to get your momentum going. Economic uncertainties are featured as you focus to touch ground but find yourself slipping. But the fault is unlikely yours given the times.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Some definite shifts close to home have begun. These could be manifesting as a mixed blessing. On one hand, they are pointing to the need to confront any fears may be blocking your resolve to commit and make the efforts necessary to succeed. On the other hand, a complex wave of confidence is washing in reminding you that by successfully directing your will you will prevail.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Combining all the recent events, you have been catapulted into an array of activities, interests, and intrigues. The new cycle will keep you quite busy in terms of communication exchanges and obtaining new knowledge. In some regards, your perspectives are undergoing some radical shifts, but it may take until later in February before they really get ignited.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
With your ruling planet, Saturn, now in Aquarius, you especially will notice that you have entered a new cycle of experience. It will have the effect of directing your attention to the future and perhaps especially regarding financial interests. Yet, given the wild bull market, you may feel cautious about how to proceed. To this end, you will likely and are probably wise to seek counsel.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Happy to let the world get going before you engage, you will find yourself happy behind the scenes. Yet, expansion is on your mind and you do want to increase your outreach. Increasing and strengthening your friend and/or contact network is indicated. Budding new friendships are likely and these will include association with people interested in the finer details of the big picture.
Pisces (Feb. 20-Mar. 20)
The time has come to enter a new phase of work and development. However, rather than start new projects, your better bet is to continue with those already begun. Even those that have been stored away in the basement can be brought forward. Be patient with the progress on the larger of these, however. So, focus on all the loose ends that are ready to be finished or repurposed.
