It’s a New Year and the balance of power between the masculine and the feminine is grinding into action. We will see power struggles between our material and spiritual beliefs. The right use of power is what we are struggling to understand. Is it right when multi-billion dollar industries dictate what we eat, wear, say, think etc? The Collective Consciousness is waking up in everything and change is afoot! This month heralds a huge shift in global politics, structure and the way things have been done for too long, much of it without our knowledge. There is a great need rising up in people to be better, do better, help others and find meaning in their lives. You can see this is the movements that are sweeping our nation. Co-housing is happening, even in Omaha; this is where small communities are created that are multi-generational and sustainable; (Visit: www.Cohousing.org for more info about Papillion’s new development). There is another movement gaining popularity called Guerilla Gardening. This is where a group of devoted gardeners arm themselves with plants, shovels, seeds and more and descend on an area that is ignored, neglected, or used for clandestine activities and they transform the area. This is helping poverty neighborhoods regain some pride in where they live and the results are amazing! (http://www.guerrillagardening.org/). Welcome to a time where grass roots passion will transform our world. We are in for decades of dramatic change, some of it horrific, and some unbelievable miracles! The key to handling this year, and our future, is to be extremely flexible and open to change for the better. Talk to your neighbors and your children, relax and stay focused on what is yours to do, find out what is yours to do. This month will have strong highs and lows and the possibility for great love and passion. We are remaking our lives/world, and we are all up to it!
ARIES-The New Moon in Capricorn on the 11th offers you a chance to show your worth and make some changes. It’s a busy month with friends and hopefully no arguments, but Mars is in your friend sector and can highlight ego discussions. It would be better to use up some of that energy in contact sports. There will be radical changes in your life this year with some very lucky influences standing by to help. Relationships may be challenging in the autumn.
TAURUS-The New Year will be a mixed bag of stress and ease intermingling and it might make you a little irritable to be around at times. Just breathe; there is a strong focus at the New Moon on the 11th for you to expand your knowledge and to seek higher learning from a wise teacher. With Mars touring your career zone you could find people really appreciating your hard work and steady application, might be a good time to present some new ideas on where your company should be going. If you are unemployed this is a good month to find work.
GEMINI-The year begins with a happy attitude, fun with friends and great communications. Expect some form of increased financial support towards the end of the month. This is a month that can also challenge you to release old patterns and to make better/healthier choices. Busy, as you like it, contemplative sharing with others and a new friend or two on the horizon. Just don’t overeat or overdo!
CANCER-Relationships and especially marriage partners will be your concern as we start the year. You may be thinking back over the year and wondering what it all means and where it is going. It’s a pretty fast pace all month so just take some time to reflect as you will be undergoing major transformation thanks to Mars. Venus will help out towards the end of the month with all of your relationships, but it will light reading, nothing ever is when Pluto is around and he will be in this area for many more years. It’s a good time to be honest about what you need with a partner.
LEO-The New Moon on the 11th is in your sign helping you to lay plans for who you want to be next! Leo’s love changing roles and this is a good time to do that. The theme of the whole year for you will be healing, spiritual transformation and expanding your mind. This month may bring a new love into your life or re-charge an old one. There is some stress with authority, yours or another’s and you will be communicating a lot, but keep that sharp tongue to yourself, make it peaceful.
VIRGO-All in all this is a pretty great month which is a precursor to a good year for all Virgos. There will be some challenges, there always are, but you are favored now. This month you will be appreciated for your gifts and possibly asked to do more at work because you are so capable now. The New Moon on the 11th lands in your achievement/career sector showing it is time to start something new. Home life is good this month and there will be lots of activity with children or creativity.
LIBRA-A great year is in store for all Libras who have been working towards their goals. This month will be lovely most of the time with just a little nudge here and there to stay on track and be your best self. There is much energy in your home area so you might want to do a little rearranging, moving, painting etc. Uranus in your partnership house could bring some unexpected activity between you and another, keep it peaceful.
SCORPIO-January will start a little better than December ended and hopefully you can mend a few fences now. Mars, one of your co-rulers is pretty strong on the home front this month and could cause a few arguments, it’s much better to re-arrange furniture than argue, it’s just energy, use it wisely. Work is sporadic and there is a mild caution to take your time and not hurry through things. You don’t need any accidents.
SAGITTARIUS-A good year for Sagittarians to stand in their power and move forward! You are very attractive and charming this month thanks to Venus. There is a focus to get out and develop more of your talents and to even make more money. You will be working hard on that and maybe get a little help from a sibling or neighbor. Home is still undergoing much healing and hopefully you are being really creative and changing it around to suit your evolving self a little more comfortably.
CAPRICORN-With so many planets (Pluto, Mercury, and Sun & Venus) in your sign, the month shines a strong light on you. Your sterling character of seeing what needs to be done and doing it will be a rally call to your friends to step up their efforts at self improvement too! Be sure to keep up with any health concerns because Jupiter continues to be a strong influence for the better in that area, which means any little step you take to heal your body, will bring healing much faster!
AQUARIUS-Power packed! Mars and the Sun will have you super charged and the whole month is strong for you physically and mentally! Enjoy your loving friends at the beginning through mid-month. Your creativity is also very strong due to a Jupiter retrograde; dig around for some old art project you could finish now, or take a little vacation it will expand your mind. Everyday life is just full of unexpected pleasures and people for the whole year.
PISCES-Breathe in the beauty and joy of your life, it is all around you. This month will be filled with love, friends and great activity in your home. Remember to let go of the old, especially old friends that you have outgrown, so that the new friends have room in your life. Thanks to Venus, you will be seen as a beacon of love which is your natural state. Home is a haven but you may be thinking of moving. Saturn has been grounding your sweet spiritual nature as it gets ready to move into your career sector later this year…….this is groundbreaking for you! Much honor and fame will come your way from this.
