This month is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. Friends, co-workers, clients, business partners, romantic partners or interests will take center stage. Topics like finding clarity about where you stand with people important to you, your relationship to them, and how it is best to move forward with re-connecting, collaborating, committing, or splitting will all take major focus at this time. It is a great time to make important decisions and take big steps.
Alternatively, fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged.
The relationship with self is the primary relationship from which everything else extends and this time can offer great opportunities to evaluate inner issues honestly and motivate to take action on shifting individual patterns that can have profound effects on relationship patterns with others.
THE TIDES HAVE FINALLY SHIFTED! We are FINALLY free of ALL the retrograde influences that were the tagline of most of 2018 and we enter on January 6 (through Feb 18) a time of ALL the planets moving in forward motion! The stars are ripe and ready to bring NEW things! New jobs, promotions, expanded career opportunities, and so many more possibilities in all areas of life all await as increased potentials! Eclipses on January 5-6 and January 20-21 are likely to bring notable and dramatic changes that could have started brewing mid-2018.
This sector of the chart also has to do with aesthetics so you may have the urge to decorate, spruce up, or move things around. This month could be great for making small and large design-based decisions and purchases. This can be a fantastic time for NEW renovation or building projects and if you have been holding off from getting body art or major new hairstyle or other body enhancement, the energies are better for this now than they have been in a while. Always remember to follow your intuition with these big decisions as even if the general transits are supportive, things in your personal chart could conflict with that energy, so go with your gut (or get a more in-depth report from an astrological professional). Also, I tend to avoid the days around the eclipses (Jan 5-6 and Jan 20-21) for really big things if they are in your control, if not, go with the flow).
If you are on a budget, into environmentally-friendly focus, or just want to incorporate bonding with your friends, or meeting new friends into your redecorating process, something fun is to have a ‘home item swap party’ with friends. Each person bringing a potluck food/drink item to share and some items from their home that they are done with. Everyone will leave from this gathering with new items without spending any money
It is also a great time for entertaining. This is a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings.
It is an awesome month for weddings and other big commitments (again if possible give a little distance between the eclipse days of Jan 5-6 and Jan 20-21 – if something is already set in stone, follow your flow and your gut about it).
If you are self-employed and looking for more business the energies have now opened up for awesome NEW clients, NEW energies, NEW projects, and exciting NEW advances.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Leo Horoscope is more relevant for you.
