Aries, Mars (motivation and drive), which is your ruling planet, is now in Aquarius, which happens to be your 11th house of groups, friends, and associations. This energy is encouraging you to start the New Year off by surrounding yourself with your “people,” and by people I mean the ones you keep close to your heart and who understand you in and out. With Uranus now moving in direct motion and transiting through your 1st house of self, things are sure to be changing for you and might I add… quickly! Venus is currently in Capricorn and in your solar 10th house of career. As Venus is about love, let’s not forget it’s also about money. Focus on your goals at work and you could be seeing a raise sooner than you think!

Taurus, Venus (love and money) is currently in your solar 9th house of travel, philosophy, and spiritual beliefs. Have you ever thought of meeting someone from another country? If you’ve been thinking about expanding your search criteria in your JDate profile, now is the time to do just that! You never know… and if you do meet someone, expect it to be intense as Venus matches up with Pluto (transformation) in Capricorn around the middle of the month. Let’s just say… expect things to get hot and heavy if they haven’t already done so!

Gemini, hello twins! Since we know you are the champion of multitasking it’s no surprise that I can see a lot of that in your future. With Saturn (discipline) and the north node (destiny and soul growth) both in your solar 6th house of work, this New Year will likely start off with a lot of busy work to take care of. However, somehow I don’t think you’ll mind it because one of you can go to work and the other can have fun and play – which I know you can do as well! Besides work, there’s also a heavy emphasis in your solar 8th house of intimacy this month. Yes, looks like the Universe doesn’t want you to only bury your head in the mundane details of work as you have some other lessons to learn as well. With Pluto, Mercury, and the Sun all in this house, it’s time to dive deep and really discover who you are. It’s only when you really know this truth that you can share this with another soul. THAT is intimacy at it’s finest.

Cancer, big news for you this month and there is a lot of activity happening in your solar 7th house of committed relationships as well. Pluto (transformation) is a very slow moving planet and it will be there for a while… but this is a good thing!  This energy is transforming the people that will stay in your life… for better or worse… and when this is happening, it’s a good idea to just surrender and go with the flow. If someone you thought was going to be in your life leaves, then it’s only to make room for the right one that will stay. Around the 10th, Venus (love and money) will move into Capricorn in this house as well and this will create an even bigger emphasis and expansion in your love life! The key is to make sure you are balanced with equal giving and receiving.

Leo, the Sun, which is your ruling planet, is currently in your solar 6th house of work, service, and health. With Mercury (communication) and Pluto (transformation) in there as well, this could be the month you start to alter your eating plan and really shape up as you’ve been thinking about doing it for a while now. It’s not so much about losing weight as it is about feeling healthy from the inside out. This is the key that will help you to glow so you can attract your mate… who I know you are looking for because if anyone can love big, it’s you Leo! You have so much love to give and want to share it with the right person, so start by taking care of yourself first so that you can attract a likeminded healthy soul as well.

Virgo, this is a big month of love and dating for you. Mercury, the Sun, and Pluto are all in your solar 5th house of love, romance, creative self expression and fun! It’s a new year and this is the perfect time to get out there and date, date, date! If you’ve doubted yourself, or you’ve been watching too many episodes of the Millionaire Matchmaker instead of trying to find that match for yourself, this would be a good month to put yourself out there. Work with the energy that is given to you right now and take a chance, it could turn out better than you ever imagined.

Libra, the focus for you this month is on your home and family, as well as building a strong foundation for yourself so that you can go out there and do whatever it is that your heart is yearning to do. With three planets in your solar 4th house, it’s a good time to organize your house, clear out the clutter, and even redecorate if you can – these are some general ways to work with the energy. However, on a deeper level, this energy is also calling for you to build a solid foundation for yourself. Ground yourself and your energy so that you are confident and know who you are. This will help you not only in the dating world, but also in every other aspect of your life as well.

Scorpio, this month is all about communication for you. Clear, well-thought-out communication is the key. It’s a new year and gone are the days of acting out simply on emotion. By the middle of the month, you will have four planets in Capricorn in your solar 3rd house of communication. Translation… it’s time for your soul to focus on speaking what you want and saying it in a calm and rational manner! With Mars (motivation and drive) in your solar 4th house of home, family, and your roots, this should give you the confidence you need to stand up to ask for the things you want and to remove the things that you don’t want. For you oh-mighty-Scorpio, this will be as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Sagittarius, January looks like it’s going to be a good month for you on the money front.
Not only is Venus (love and money) still in your solar 1st house of self, but this is a great energy to bring in that person you’ve been looking for. To top it off, Mercury, Pluto and the Sun are all currently in your solar 2nd house of… what other than… yes, money! The 2nd house is also our value system. What do you have? Why did you buy it? What do you invest in? All these questions pertain to your value system, so this energy is encouraging you to get clear on what’s important in your life and what’s not. Lucky for you, with Pluto (transformation) there as well, the ‘what’s not’ part will eventually be taken care of for you anyway. However, the sooner you can understand what you want, the quicker and more seamless this transformation of love and money will be for you. Happy investing!

Happy birthday, Capricorn! It’s no surprise your solar 1st house (of self) is jam packed this month because… well… it is YOUR month! With the New Year underway and with four planets currently packed in your 1st house, it’s a good idea to focus on yourself this month. Set your goals and intentions. I do not just mean because it’s the New Year, rather I encourage you to do this because you can use this energy to channel everything you want. Get it down on paper and organize your thoughts – this, I know you can do! You’re in luck because Capricorns often like to focus on the bigger picture and that is exactly what you should be doing right now. Map out your year ahead, but as always, be flexible to change as it’s inevitable in life.

Aquarius, this is your month to push through and you’ll have the motivation to do what you’ve been contemplating for some time now. With Mars (energy, drive, motivation) in your solar 1st house of self, it’s up to you to tap into this energy and to get out there and take care of business. Mars will be moving out of your solar 1st house by the beginning of February so while it’s there, tap into your inner reserves and make life happen! You also have a lot of activity happening in your solar 12th house of the subconscious, so while you’re taking charge of your new life, remember to clear out what is no longer serving you. The combination of both will propel you to new heights that you’ve never imagined before!

Pisces, this is definitely going to be a social month for you! With four planets all in Capricorn and in your solar 11th house of groups, friends, and networking, it’s not the time to stay at home and dream about the life you want. Now is the time to go out there and actually create it. As a mutable sign, you have the ability to be in many places at once, and to be doing many things at once. Thinking about joining that new Meetup group? Go for it! Thinking about joining that bowling league?? (Ok, well you get the point!) Now is the time to do so, and with Venus being one of those planets in your 11th house, you just may meet the love of your life at a social function. Go for it! If anything, you’ll meet some new friends and your future husband/wife just may be one of their friends too! See where I’m going with this? I’m all over the place, exactly how you should be this month! Enjoy!
