This month, we’re transitioning from ambitious Capricorn to visionary Aquarius, shifting our focus from the personal to the collective. When the sun enters Aquarius on January 19, take the passion, drive, and connections you hustled earlier this month and pour them into a good cause! Also remember Capricorn doesn’t want to rock the boat, and Aquarius loves to shock, so expect a turn for the avant-garde toward the end of the month too—just in time for award season!
If nothing else, Venus’s entry into her home sign of Pisces on January 3 makes the last days of Mercury retrograde tolerable, if not a little bit magical. The day after, Mercury retrograde slips from Capricorn intro buoyant Sagittarius, lifting everyone’s spirits just in time for Mercury direct in Sagittarius a few days later. On January 12, a full moon in Cancer aligns with a stressful Grand Cardinal Cross that will see everyone under major (but necessary) emotional strain, as the cosmos clears the decks in our relationships to ourselves. When Mercury re-enters Capricorn that same day, you may just start to feel like yourself again, for the first time in a long time.
Mark January 27 on your calendar: This is when you start properly working on your New Year’s resolutions if you decide to make any. The following day, you’ll have the passionate motivation of Mars in his home sign of Aries on your side. With that kind of fuel, there’s nothing you can't accomplish.
As an Aries, you’re hardwired to go, do, and see as much of life as you possibly can, but this month, the cosmos brings you back to your home base. Under the full moon in Cancer on January 12, you may find that you’ve spread yourself too thin and need to consolidate your energy. This moon is part of a Grand Cardinal Cross, a star formation that shows you where you could be more grounded. This time, Jupiter, Pluto, and Uranus in your sign align to help you balance career, relationships, and your own desires. It’s not fun, but it is necessary.
Later, on January 27, a new moon in Aquarius brings you a mentor, teacher, or a new group of friends who can support you as you work through the full moon’s revelations. It’s ruled by visionary Uranus in your sign, so whatever you discover on that day has the potential to be a breakthrough that serves you into the rest of 2017. Take notes and don’t be afraid to ask questions! The following day, on the 28th, your ruling planet, Mars, moves into your ruling sign, Aries, to give you an energy boost that will motivate you to boldly go where no one has gone before. This year, the world is yours to explore.
