The festivities of the last few weeks will seem a distant memory as January gets underway. A Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on January 5th is a stark reminder that responsibilities loom large – for many of us, this will mark a return to hard work. New Year blues are a distinct possibility for many, especially those working in jobs they do not enjoy.
Help is soon at hand, however, courtesy of Venus’ arrival in optimistic Sagittarius on January 7th. This energy brings new ideas and fresh possibilities. We need focus and concentration in order to make the most of this potential, however, otherwise exciting new plans could remain just that – plans, with no action being taken. It’s important to balance dreams and goals with actual practical steps, and this is underlined on January 13th when a difficult Jupiter-Neptune square promises much but delivers little.
Vagueness evaporates on January 18th when a passionate Venus-Mars trine raises the temperature and gives fiery impetus to love, business and pleasure pursuits. A few days later, the Lunar Eclipse and Supermoon in Leo helps us to find that dramatic flourish which all the best plans need – and this in turn is perfectly timed for the very fortunate Venus-Jupiter conjunction on January 22nd; it’s at this point that brilliant ideas can really take flight.
