The Sun whirls through your 4th house this month bringing focus on home, real estate, and home-based ventures.
The desire to spruce up or organize home may be strong at this time. January is an amazing time for researching big design, building, decorating projects, and doing basic maintenance, repair and easy to change sprucing. This month is also a great time to initiate, commit to, and carry through expensive or hard to change updates. This month could be great for clarity and forward movement on projects that you have been planning and new ideas. This could be the best month for all of 2020 for moving forward on these big projects!!
This is also a fantastic month for cozying up at home. A fun project at this time is to do some Feng Shui treatments to your home. Deep cleaning, clearing clutter, and reorganizing is also in great alignment now.
Since the Sun lighting up your 4th house also means your family sector is lit up, if you are traveling this month, it is likely be to visit family or to a place that was or feels like ‘home’ or you may have family come visit you.
Family fun could enter center stage. Equally as likely could be family drama. Tread lightly on trigger topics with family and feel into doing work to dissolve your own triggers.
The 4th house is also the sector of childhood psychology, so things that happened as a child that are affecting your current situation (like patterns in relationship or elsewhere, that recreate circumstances that made you feel the same way you did when you were a child). The Sun in this position can light up things that are right and can also make more clear things that need improvement. If important actions have to be made working on the inner planes, there is much support at this time. If you feel ready to stop the patterns that have been holding you back, you can find great resources and make great headway now. Inner work is awesome at any time this month.
Diving deep into research about your ancestry, genetic testing, and anything else related to the past and your family carries great support now.
If you have real estate investments or are wanting to sell or buy a home, this month will likely bring much activity in this sector. Big news in these departments could come in now. This month can be especially amazing for buying and selling homes.
The second of two powerful eclipses comes January 10, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 20° of Cancer. HUGE news and MAJOR changes are very likely!!
From December 9, 2019 through through February 2, 2020 is one of the best, most wide open launch periods until 2021. Big launches, major decisions, huge steps, important plans, are all perfect for this window. So take advantage of this window for ACTION and FORWARD MOVEMENT! The rest of 2020 as we move into February is more focused inward and backward because of the string of personal planet retrogrades (Venus, Mars, and 3 Mercury).
There will be a couple of open points amidst the retrograde wall, the last few days of March 2020 and first week or so of April 2020 and a few days towards the end of July 2020 represent an energetic ‘coming up for air’ so you can set your sights on these times for important things that can’t be implemented sooner. After that, it will be December 2020 before there is any wearing off of the retrograde focus, and even that month is completely covered in Mars post-retrograde shadow period.
Do keep in mind that retrogrades can be awesome for many things but for the big, never been done, launches, clarity and big decisions, the times when the personal planets are in direct motion tend to be better for launching your ships of dreams.
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 Scorpio Horoscope is more relevant for you.
