Welcome to 2020!
This week’s horoscopes will be a bit different.
I’m going to spend more time writing about what we can expect as we head into one of the biggest weeks of the year…of the last 34 years, actually. So your individual ‘scopes will be just a key statement so you’ll know what to stay focused on as we rock and roll into what’s coming.
I know many of you are holding your breath as we head into some turbulent times and this is where it all comes to a head. Astrologers have been looking at this week for quite some time now and as we head into the exact conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, we face significant changes to say the least. I’m not going to speculate what world events may unfold during this time because there are plenty of what are known as mundane astrologers who specialize in that like Marjorie Orr . She has a good take on global affairs from an astrological point of view. Also check out Michele Avanti – one of the best I know.
My horoscopes always focus on you. What you’ll likely feel/experience each week and how you can personally navigate through the planetary shifts based on your Sun sign. So no, I’m not sticking my head in the sand and ignoring world events, although I do love my unicorns and happy memes. I’m merely continuing to do what I do best, and be consistent in my work.
So the first astro event of the week is a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer. Generally a time of heightened sensitivity and potentially hurt feelings, but it can be a major turning point in your life if you were born January 9 or 11. Take this opportunity to come to terms with matters related to mothers or being a nurturing parent, your home and real estate, dependency and safety. Uranus throws some quick changes and some insightful messages at you on the same day as it stations to go direct after 5 months of being retrograde so expect the unexpected. That’s not a bad thing-if you’re hoping for something completely different to happen in a situation. You can be pleasantly surprised!
January 12 is the big day, although as I always remind you-big planetary events always start waaaaay before the date-they build up, and the date is typically the culmination of everything. And so we have arrived at the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.
A little background about the players:
Saturn is a planet of stability, rational thinking, longevity and order. Pluto is a powerful and destructive force, with a penchant for exposing anything hidden. Both of these planets value integrity, honesty, decency-they just have different ways to unearth the truth to get to it. The goal here with these mighty forces in play in the sign of Capricorn, is for each of us to be honest within ourselves, as real, grounded and intentional as we can be right now. Pluto teaches us about power and control-where we have it, abuse it and where we are victims of it. Saturn teaches us to persevere and stay the course for the highest and best. Capricorn’s energy is about utilizing what we have to the best of our ability, to succeed, to lead others. We’re in kind of a spiritual battle with ourselves and in some cases, others, and it’s up to each of us to be humans of integrity.
This week’s message is to stay true to who you know you are, and ask to be shown how you can be the best person you can be in every situation that arises. Ask spirit or whatever your source is, to show you where you can be of maximum service to others. We will be called on more often this year, so we have to work even harder to know what is ours to do and how to help others best.
We’ll get through the changes, and when we come out on the other side, we’ll see why we had to experience this turbulence. Let go of the things that are holding you back. Free yourself and you’ll be so relieved to gain that clarity when you get to the other side of this huge wave of energy. One of my favorite sayings is “surrender to win”. It took me a long time to understand what that really meant, but it’s been a great source of peace for me to know when to walk away from situations that have made me uncomfortable. Doesn’t mean I agree, condone or ignore something, just that my energy can be better used (there’s that Capricorn word again) making a difference in another way. And I need to look for that way.
You’re being born again-and birth from a baby’s perspective is kinda ugly, messy and we get slapped as soon as we come out. Not a great start. But oh, boy! We get to live in this magnificent human body and experience the fullness of life. Joy, pain, sadness and the greatest of all-LOVE. I choose love and I’m going to stick around to give it and receive it as much as possible.
