0 955

January is a powerful month that kicks off with plenty of action! It’s a month to get serious about your plans, but be realistic, and at the same time believe in your dreams, and banish self-doubts. The combination of Mercury retrograde, a powerful connection between the Sun and Pluto and a confronting square with the Sun and Uranus, bring things to a head. Suddenly, the way can clear for what comes next.  Jupiter also goes retrograde, Venus and Saturn put a realistic and long-term spin on things, and the new Moon in Capricorn, makes this a ideal month to get thoughts and plans in place, ready for action when the time is right. Venus moves to Capricorn causing a more serious note. With love you can settle down and with money, build security. At the end of the month, both Mercury out of retrograde and the full Moon in Leo, provide the energy to anticipate better things to come.
