Your Weekly Astrology Forecast January 13 -19, 2020

The week begins with the five-planet conjunction of Sun-Mercury-Ceres-Saturn-Pluto at 22 degrees of Capricorn. Jupiter and the South Node are also in Capricorn. Capricorn symbolizes structures, government, and rules; structural change is in process through the workings of the strong collective energy in Capricorn. In our personal lives Capricorn symbolizes industriousness, responsibility, goals, and achievement. If ever there was a time to prune what is unnecessary or outdated, set goals and work hard to achieve them, that time is now. Make the most of this productive week.

industry and efficiency to start the week

Monday reflects a continuation of an intense planetary energy, with the Sun perfecting as an exact conjunction to Saturn. The Moon moves into Virgo, giving industry and efficiency to the work at hand. The Moon trines Uranus, enabling us to solve problems in innovative, brilliant ways.

Tuesday is another day with a Virgo Moon, giving us the green light for cleaning house and getting organized. Planetary activity is mostly benefic. It’s time to get things in order, and take great strides to get tasks checked off our list.

While the Moon is in copasetic Libra on Wednesday, challenging energy abounds. The Moon-Chiron opposition may bring up fears regarding autonomy and partnership. Stay with the grace and inspiration of the Libra Moon. See the beauty around you. Buy fresh flowers for your home. Enjoy a fine dinner with someone beloved.

brilliance and innovation over the next few weeks

Thursday Mercury ingresses into Aquarius where it activates brilliance and innovative thinking for the next few weeks (until February 3rd). The Moon makes its weekly hard aspect with Saturn and Pluto, so the grace of Libra is aggravated and challenged. Give life’s demands the works.

The Moon is void of course early Friday morning, so use the time for routine tasks until 10:21 a.m. PST when the Moon moves into Scorpio for the weekend. Make this a weekend when you pull back and take some solitude, as Scorpio likes to withdraw from the world into its cave. Scorpio’s intensity, combined with the numerous planets in Capricorn, can help us get a lot accomplished. If there’s a garage or basement needing decluttering and organization, put this energy to work Saturday and Sunday. A Mercury-Uranus aspect gives brilliance and creative problem solving ability.

a weekend of exercise and exploration

The Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius on Sunday at 2:41 p.m. PST. Our spirits are lifted as we mobilize for the week ahead. Sagittarius loves walking and hiking in the outdoors, so get some exercise. Enjoy a social evening.

The Sun ingresses into Aquarius on Monday, lifting some of the heavy Capricorn energy to broader vistas. A Moon-Mars conjunction stirs emotions and triggers a yearning to explore. However, a Moon-Neptune square makes it not so clear where to go. Explore where you are drawn to travel in the coming year.

This week in short: 

Monday: Strong industrious, efficient energy. Problems can be solved brilliantly and intuitively.

Tuesday: Power-packed day to get our lives in order.

Wednesday: Affirm the beauty of the Libra Moon. Enjoy a fine dinner with someone special.

Thursday: Give the day the works.

Friday: Take some solitude. Dive deep and get a lot accomplished.

Saturday: Continue to take some space. Solve problems brilliantly.

Sunday: Take a hike. Ride on positive energy to get ready for the week ahead. Make it a social evening.
