Happy New Year to all!
This will be a great year for expanding communication skills, travel, new inventions, and creativity.
The Sun is now traveling through the practical earth sign Capricorn-Happy Birthday Capricorns! This year will trigger an awakening for the signs: Aries Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Capricorn is an ambitious goal orientated sign. Planning and achieving those goals is the reward for Capricorn. The transiting Sun will shift into Aquarius on January 20th.
Mercury, the fastest moving planet that enables all things to connect, is moving retrograde until January 15th also in the sign Capricorn. This transit will continue to focus our attention on our goals and ambitions. This is a good time to develop projects that have been shelved or to do research. Pace your self during this time as Mercury retrograde can bring up surprising situations. Things go amiss when Mercury slows down towards it direct station on Jan. 15th.
Saturn is the planet that represents: discipline, limitations and introspection. It is now traveling through the air sign Libra where Saturn is strong and teaches us about cooperation and if that is lacking we develop obstacles. Saturn can deepen our awareness by applying pressure on us which does not always feel good but that is how we grow through the force of limitation. It will move retrograde motion between Jan. 13th –May 30th. Saturn retrogrades strengthen our resolve and help us build focus, persistence and endurance.
So if you are planning New Year’s resolution Saturn’s transit through Libra will definitely encourage your cooperation.
Mars the planet of war, drive, energy is also moving retrograde in the fire sign Leo. It will station direct March 10th. During this time we can expect for our ambitions, initiatives, and drives to be directed by more will power.
We can sometimes get into arrogant viewpoints for Leo likes to be proud.
This transit will also help to focus leadership qualities that pertain to the well fare of others as Leo can be generous as well as demanding.
