January 2020by the AstroTwins
Widen your lens, Taurus, but keep an eye on the little things, too! January features a plethora of planets in Capricorn and your ninth house of growth, entrepreneurship, and risk-taking. The Sun is here until January 20, stoking your curiosity and filling you with a “new decade, new you” sense of possibility. It’s bolstered by abundant Jupiter (in Cap through December), structured Saturn, and powerhouse Pluto, which will help give form to your brilliant ideas.
Is it time to go back to school, launch that startup, or put your ideas into book form? Expect white-lightning epiphanies as Saturn and Pluto make exact contact in Capricorn on January 12, both pinging messenger Mercury and the Sun. As the January 10 Cancer lunar (full moon) eclipse makes landfall in your third house of communication and brainstorming, you could speak those words into power! Whether you do a social media push, release a viral video, or just raise your voice among peers, this is a crucial moment—so choose your message wisely. What you say will be noted and recorded. And yes, this is also a nudge to keep certain opinions to yourself.
Direct your attention to investments—of actual money and your time and energy (the intangible resources). Go-getter Mars is powering through Sagittarius and your eighth house of wealth from January 3 to February 16. This could bring a large expense or an influx of funding. A real estate sale, paying off debt, maybe even exploring the blockchain/crypto universe…all of these get a boost of Martian mojo from the red planet. Make a courageous but strategic money move that will build your long-term nest egg.
When the Sun enters Aquarius and your ambitious tenth house on January 20, you’ll have a powerful month to really start pursuing those big 2020 resolutions. The January 24 Aquarius new moon, which also begins the industrious Year of the Metal Rat, is the day to start! Don’t let friends confuse or distract you on January 28, when Mars squares off with hazy Neptune. Advice is good up to a point, but “know thyself,” Taurus!
