Hungover or not, extra caretaking is in order on New Year’s Day. The super full moon in Cancer could target a sensitive or vulnerable spot or trigger a much-needed release. Cozy up or cuddle up for the evening. Uranus ends its four-month retrograde tour on back-to-work Tuesday, January 2. The day could hold edginess or excitability, or be all over the map. Take it in stride.
On Saturday, January 6, Mars teams up with Jupiter in Scorpio, Mercury trines Uranus, and the Virgo moon makes a host of planetary contacts. Get moving; seize advantage. It is an opportunity day. On a caution note, play it smart; avoid dangerous places, people, or drugs.
Monday, January 8, and Tuesday, January 9, are auspicious for all official, professional, money, and relationship undertakings. Sun/Venus begin the next nine-month manifesting cycle. Sun/Venus are also drawing extra turbo from power planet Pluto and action planet Mars.
The year 2018 brings three major planetary changes. If you are ready to work for it, Saturn, newly in Capricorn, will reward you with substantial results. During the next couple of years, Saturn will bring endings of great significance and simultaneously cement a new reality baseline. Uranus will give us our first taste of its eight-year transit through Taurus. Uranus in Taurus reinvents survival requirements and social and monetary value systems. (Yes, the Bitcoin and pot industries are lucrative investments.) We will also get our first taste of Chiron’s nine-year transit through Aries. Chiron’s message? Some things are worth fighting for, no matter what price must be paid up-front. Live your life brave and bold. Best wishes for the new year!
