(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in January and the New Year. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aries, Taurus, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aries acts, Taurus owns, Sagittarians seek, Capricorns climb, and Aquarius knows. Mars is in Aries until Jan. 6th. We are very active and possibly impulsive. Mars in Taurus from the 6th pours energy into routines. Venus in week 1 is in Sagittarius. We love traveling and opining. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3, and Mercury in week 1, and Venus in weeks 2, 3, and 4 are in Capricorn. We find ourselves looking up to our goals. Pluto continues its long passage through Capricorn and can bring extremes and change to government and business. The Sun in week 4 and Mercury in weeks 2, 3, and 4 are in Aquarius. Emphasis is on people, ideas, and the future. Mercury goes retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th, so, let’s slow down and pay attention to what we are doing. The big news this month is the recent movement of Saturn and Jupiter into the sign, Aquarius. This brings a focus on people and ideas, and global issues. Social and intellectual events increase. Jupiter in Aquarius lasts until ’22 with the exception of May, June, and July. Saturn will be in Aquarius until Spring ’23. Jupiter can bring good things to humanity, for example, the vaccine. Saturn brings difficulties but also new goals. The more positive we are, the better it will go. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. With Jupiter and Saturn moving into Aquarius, they connect with Uranus, tripling the effect on these fixed signs. Jupiter will do this for a couple of months, Saturn for a year and also later ’22. So, resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Mars joins Uranus in Taurus on the 6th and stays through early Feb. We have Uranus and Mars squaring Saturn and Jupiter. This is new, powerful, and tense. We need to be wise and positive. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways.
A New Moon in Capricorn on the 11th, the 12th, and morning of the 13th brings a new start in our public lives. A Full Moon in Leo on 28th and 29th focuses on personal power versus group power.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Libra on the 5th and 6th and in Taurus on the afternoon of the 20th, the 21st, and the 22nd.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 11, 14, 15, 16, 18, 23, am 25, & 30. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
