A Sun and Pluto conjunction bring a significant energetic or literal change to your career sector. You are ready to step into the limelight and leap into a new cycle.
Mercury direct on the 9th allows you to express your grand plans without confusion, it takes a few days to calm down and detangle the communication chaos, but generally, you feel much more confident.

You might feel tested by the Universe on the 12th regarding your work life balance. Annoying and challenging as it might be, your energy is poked to give you greater balance.

And now, drum roll please, the most exciting news of the month is that Mars your ruler is going into your sign! You’re refueled and empowered. This unstoppable Mars reboot gives you the strength to go for it, throwing yourself into 2017 with eagerness and high expectations.
You’re feeling very outgoing this January, and have the chance to connect with some interesting folk who may end up collaborating with you in more ways than one.

Jupiter, the Planet of expansion, wants you to be diligent when it comes to work and your health and well-being.

Your senses are on high alert but it’s difficult to motivate yourself after 28th. It’s the perfect time to reflect, meditate and let your imagination go wild as well as giddy romantic love. Try to keep one of those lovely hoofs on the ground though!
Wow! Jupiter and Saturn are helping you transform your love life. Never mind January 2017 could hold the key to a whole new level of joy, playfulness, creativity and love!

Of course, it’s up to you to open to this vibe and do your bit. Let love be your mantra. It may be an overused quote, but Martin Luther King nails it –
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Venus wants to remind you of that!
Your ruler Mercury goes direct on the 9th, and you feel as if a great weight has been lifted. Mercury retrograde probably makes you feel odd and out of sorts and causes all kinds of chaos.

Jupiter is also sextile Saturn bringing in a grounding, growing energy brimming with possibility in your area of home/family and health and well-being. If you want an overhaul of your home or body, Saturn is supporting you and showing you how. You put the hard work in and Saturn gives you the stamina to make it work.

A massive and important day on the 12th as the magnificent Full Moon is in your sign. You are filled with emotion, hope, psychic visions and strange coincidences. You may even find yourself tearful or experience a peak emotional state. The Moon is your friend and ally, and she will show you something important.

You recently faced a fear or old hurt and this has transformed you.

Mars the planet of action and desire joins forces with Neptune, the romantic dreamer in your primal zone. Love, lust and obsession are on the menu. A word of caution, careful you don’t lose yourself or do something spontaneously sentimental or even hunger driven, that you can’t take back. Primal emotions, if not kept in check, can often bite one on the bum!
A very special Jupiter and Saturn sextile mean these planets have your back and want you to grow strong roots and confidence in your creativity and communication.

Saturn is your happiness piggy bank this year and will pay you exceptional dividends.
Talking of happiness, Mercury goes direct, freeing you to express yourself without the fear of being misunderstood. Perhaps your idea of a good time jarred with someone else recently? Mercury direct untangles this and brings back the fun.
Your ruler the Sun is conjunct that brave soul Pluto, lord of transformation, change is coming! You have the capacity to utterly transform your health and well-being, ignore bad habits at your peril though as Pluto takes no prisoners and these two are in cahoots to force you to be the best that you can be. Fortunately, you are in the mood to listen and are willing to look after yourself.
The Full Moon on the 12th and a Goddess laden Cardinal Grand Cross makes you super psychic but don’t labour the point if someone is not willing to open up just yet. All is revealed in due course, but pay attention to subtle signs and symbols.

Venus radiates fabulous in your love life. Look out for a new love or an inspiring idea to revamp a current relationship. Give love quality time. Having said that a couple of occasions this month Venus hooks up with dreamy old Neptune. While this is perfect for a love in, it can make you overly infatuated; it’s teenage first love energy, so it’s difficult to keep a clear perspective (fun, though!).
The Mystic Rectangle on the 10th is swarming with powerful Goddess energy. You’re no longer fearful of being challenged as you find instant access to your strength and wisdom. The warrior within has awakened, and you aren’t going to take any bullying or antagonism, you’re rocking your Goddess and owning your power. Hooray!

It might be wise to wait until Mercury goes direct on the 9th smoothing out technology glitches and making teamwork much easier. You have a much clearer idea what people mean and how grounded their ideas are between the 9th and 13th. Also, watch what message you are putting out there before the 9th as your words are surprisingly catchy right now. What happens on social media stays on social media for eternity, yikes!
Jupiter, the Planet of luck and expansion, is sextile Saturn Lord of responsibility, and they are supporting your connections with any overseas possibilities and collaborations. Venus is brightening up your financial sector after the 3rd but take your time and seek advice in solid financial decisions as you may be led by your heart rather than your head this month.
The Full Moon on the 12th has you animated about a new health kick, and you also find yourself in a housework frenzy. It’s the perfect time to tie up loose ends and deal with unfinished business.

Mars and your Ruler Neptune join forces from the get go and you find yourself very vocal about all underdogs. You are fearless when it comes to protecting those that cannot protect themselves and you speak your mind; in fact, nothing can stop you. Be very careful how you put things though as Mercury is still retrograde which could cause you to say something in the heat of the moment that you’ll later regret.
Jupiter is Sextile Saturn the Lord of Responsibility and they’re determined to bring you into your power in 2017 so that you gain much-earned confidence and success in your career. Having said that, Saturn only rewards effort so, you are urged to stretch yourself in all ways.
Good news! Venus, the Planet of love, is in your sign from the 3rd bestowing you with a little love magic. You’re bewitching, so make the most of it. Venus in your sign helps you bring tranquillity and peace to all your relationships.
Sun and Pluto give you great power in groups but beware as Mercury is just getting his mojo back in your career sector. The Full Moon on the 12th is in a delicious position for you. You feel confident, optimistic and creative, she also offers sensual delights.
However, on the same day, we have a Goddess packed Cardinal Grand Cross which threatens your equilibrium. You may feel as if someone is playing games with you or tries to test their power. Is this a pattern in your life? You open up, and you feel as if people move away or change the rules? Your best course of action is charming, and work-that Venus energy to turn things to your advantage. Only love can banish fear and anger.
Martin Luther King poignantly said ‘Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.’
On the 13th Venus and Neptune hook up for a big old love in. You see the beauty in the world and the people around you. Your soul soars with love and a bit of spiritual ecstasy.
You’re very in tune today and have a psychic connection to those you love. All the wonder and love you feel on this day is already inside you; the love is coming from within you so honour yourself and pat yourself on the back for all you have overcome and your bravery on this journey called life. Let’s face it, life hasn’t been all rainbows and pussycats. Others should also sense the beauty of your spirit. Indulge in music, art, meditation, a walk in the woods or even better, the sea or river. You are, after all, a celestial water nymph.
