In the Stars for January 2020
The New Year 2020 ushers in a new decade which resonates with the number 4 in numerology. This number 4 stands for organization, structure, and grounding. The 20 stands for spiritual breakthrough being the number of awakening. The outer planets set up a strong force that will continue to manifest planetary earth changes and openings in the expansion of our consciousness through whatever calamities force us to change our ways of using the planet’s resources. Thus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus form a beneficial aspect. We will continue to see the status quo changing, perhaps collapsing in governments, rebellions, as we restructure our values given the challenges humanity faces in this decade. Some of the keywords are: change through destruction, re-structuring, salvaging of resources. We will see this, particularly in governments, perhaps the monetary systems of some countries. This winter will be intense weather-wise especially the first weeks of January particularly so with Saturn and Pluto forming a tight conjunction. The North and South Nodes of the Moon will also plug into this energy causing uncertain changes in direction. So hold onto your seats as we move forward in this New Year. As more earthquakes, volcanic eruptions continue to increase. Nature does have a way of speaking that is in finding its balance, watch for solar activity to be at the heart of matters concerning the earth changes. On a scarier note, countries where despots rule will increase their saber-rattling as nations strive for better conditions. This winter rise above the chaos and turn your energy inwards and listen to your intuition.
Capricorn, the sea-goat, is primarily a cardinal earth sign ambitious, disciplined, and executive action, shrewd and forever climbing towards the next challenge to overcome. The fishtail of this sign represents its origins in water, being sensitive to feelings, currents, and energy, the sea represents the subconscious of the re-incarnation mind or Jiva mind as described in the Vedas. Capricorn knows how to use all the resources in order to make the best of all things. This sign is ruled by Saturn the lord of crystalline structures, time or karma, limitations, restrictions, discipline and the ruler of the tenth house of career in the natal chart. Capricorn urges the soul to better itself regardless of the conditions it is born into. To use caution before proceeding Capricorn waits for the right opportunity before taking action. This Sun sign has strong instincts, status-seeking drives, materialism depending on the soul’s age, and possibly conservative attitudes. For those born between Jan.1rst and the 20th are still receiving the intense energies of the Saturn Pluto conjunction which urges them to change and surrender to the higher self and let go of the ego. Some may experience frustration and limitation whilst others let go and surrender to their higher- self. It’s a time to cleanse, simplify and restructure one’s life purpose. Happy Birthday, Capricorn!
