This is strangely evocative period of time for you, Aquarius. You are in the midst of intense transformation right now, but little of it is visible, as this takes place in the deeper parts of your psyche, somewhat cloudy to your conscious mind. You are spiritually connected and dream-world oriented, so that it might be best to extend your closest attention to what your inner world reveals to you in the form of dreams and visions. You become more available to friends and colleagues after the 22nd, but the influence of these unconscious parts of yourself remains. Never underestimate their power. Your real-world approach will be forever altered by the changes that are brewing now beneath the surface, and will shortly make themselves manifest at all levels of your being and in your outer-world presence also.
As the month begins, you find yourself in a meditative and reflective space, riding the energy of the New Moon from the final week of the previous month that has taken place in your sector of dream imagination and the unconscious. This is a very special time of the year for you, when you inhabit your own inner world more fully than the outer one that is superficially available all around you, and when your angel guides are speaking to you more clearly than usual in the guise of promptings that arise from intuitional levels deep within your psyche. The darkness within you is not darkness only but is full of omens and portents for the future if you can read its riddles aright. This month is an excellent time for journaling, since what comes to you might be understood more completely only with the passage of time. Perusing the pages at some future date, illuminated by the experiences of months or even years, you might in fact be amazed by what you encounter. In another way, there is a paradoxical flip side to what is going on for you in that you are now very much out in the world as well as out of it, and simultaneously making a study of the way you operate in the public arena in terms of previously unknown belief systems and new models of reality that have been percolating mentally somewhere below the level of conscious awareness. Over the first six months of the new year your perceptions will become more enriched and, eventually, fine-tuned. Your communicative outreach over this entire period also reflects these deeper visions for a more complete future self, because as you speak your truth to others it becomes more apparent to yourself as well. You are currently student and teacher, experienced wise oldster and newborn babe attempting to grok the universe for the very first time, all rolled up into one being. You are also traveling back this month to fundamental home base in a philosophical, psychological and perhaps even physical sense, or at least finding a strong focus on home, family and tribe; as well as on the dwelling space that you actually have at your disposal. In this way you make a positive attempt to ground the profound realizations of this time period into the concrete practicality of your living space and, functioning equally on a symbolic level, of the very roots of your psyche. The Full Moon of late Sunday evening, January 8th, touches on all these many and varied issues and departments of your life, preparing the way for something potent and positive to come out of your recent arc of development. You are more fully invested now at this juncture in the practical as well as the theoretical approaches to what you say and do and their ultimate influence of the world around you, while still staying very focused on your powerfully internal vision. With the Last Quarter Moon a week later, taking place on Monday, January 16th, you enter a slightly difficult time, when you are forced to re-evaluate everything that has gone before, up to this point in the cycle. The test of real-world functionality is now being applied even more strongly, so that if what you conceive does not seem to have any way to pan out in practical terms it loses significance for you. The glow stemming from your inner world is still very much present but now must compete with the stir of voices that are outer more than inner. There is a huge shift with the New Moon of Sunday evening, January 22nd in your sign. This gives you tons of energy and stimulates the more outgoing side of your social nature, with the potential for brilliant mental gymnastics tinged with idealism. Even your finances improve. You are launched on the road to your next phase and do well to reflect that as you move toward the springtime you are fated to climb still more mountains and reach for yet higher peaks.
