This is shaping up to be a month and a year of extreme self-development for you, Aquarius, so fasten your seat belt. This must inevitably involve the hidden places within you, and, sure enough, your sector of interior work and unconscious process is strongly affected. The January 10th Full Moon eclipse, taking place with the Sun and Mercury there, conjunct Saturn and Pluto, is quite powerful in this regard, implying significant metamorphosis. Also, through Chiron, you may well encounter inner wounding, the residue of early childhood trauma, that is attempting to get in closer communication with your more conscious manifestation. There is also an ongoing focus on home and family matters such as your family of origin or your current dwelling space, contributing to your closing the gap between you and the deep psychological roots of your being. Fluctuations there can lead to new realizations. Your unconscious seems alien to you, and yet can actually be your friend. Great transformation is possible now in your understanding of this important area.

Dear Aquarius, welcome to 2020. You are now entering a totally foreign land where everything you thought you knew about life is rapidly shifting. The year opens its curtains on a scene that looks different and changing. You might not be able to see the horizon or grasp the shapes of things to come. The sooner you let go of the old paradigm falling away behind you, the quicker you will be able to intuit the future and enter this new path. A necessary period of reflection is upon you to begin the year. You must be willing to let go for the moment and get into a more contemplative mode. Solitude and quiet are your allies right now, and the more willing you are to face yourself and your inner worlds, the clearer the current picture will get. Something totally new is gestating within you, but you must be patient and accept that things are not born overnight. Of course there is always work to do, new projects and missions to accomplish, but Venus still transiting in your sign to begin the year is urging you to soften your hard edges and find some time for grace, pleasure, love and beauty.
Mars enters Sagittarius on January 3rd, and this will be a nice change from Mars transiting in Scorpio for the last few months. Mars in Sagittarius is an invitation to acknowledge your collaborators and to actively seek the support of your friends and community to help you achieve your goals this month. Know who your allies are, and remember that you are not totally alone. You have loads of supporters and fans, so don’t be afraid to seek them out right now if you need support and counsel.
A Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place on January 10th, which brings attention to your health and routine. The body - mind connection is very present for you, as you begin the year, and it’s a good time to acknowledge the importance of keeping your vehicle in shape. If you have been contemplating a new health regimen, the year begins with the impetus to do so. No time spent on your body is ever wasted, and health is truly your wealth. Creating time for physical well being in 2020 will pay off more than you can imagine. This strong astrology as you begin the year supports the implementation of new habits.
The much talked about Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn takes place from January 10th to the 14th, in your soul sector. Issues around authority, your own or people who have power over you are highlighted. It’s a good idea to get clear about your need for control versus where you might be feeling powerless. Sensitivities surrounding these themes have been on the radar in the recent months, and will continue to be. Unearthing your own motivations and desires surrounding authority, power and control will pay off tremendously but you must be willing to look at these complex issues honestly. Mid-month is to a certain extent the culmination of this long process. It could finally start to feel like you are able to surrender to a process you had been resisting until now.
Mercury enters your sign on January 16th which will help dissipate the fog and a certain level of confusion you could of been feeling in the last month. Your mind will start to feel clearer and your ability to express yourself and clarify your intentions will increase. Mercury in Aquarius will square Uranus in Taurus on January 18th, bringing a wave of fresh inspiration for you. Pay attention to dialogues and ideas around these dates as they may contain the seeds of future projects.
The Sun enters your sign on January 20th signaling the beginning of a new cycle for Aquarius. You can think of the first two weeks of January as a necessary house clearing, the end of a cycle of growth, and the necessary relinquishing of old outdated furniture. The Sun entering Aquarius should shine its light on the new sprouts coming up, and infuse you with much needed warmth. The old ways must be shed in order to make space for the new that wants to move in; a necessary albeit difficult passage considering you are a Fixed sign. Even though you adore novelty, change might not be as easy as you would hope.
On January 24th, a New Moon takes place in the early degrees of Aquarius in a close square with Uranus in Taurus. This is a promise that things are not going back to the way they were. We are moving toward a totally new paradigm, and change has an important role to play in your life right now. Whether you are envisioning or embodying this change, your ability to move and adapt with what is happening will define the next several months. Set your gaze on the path ahead, and let this new inspiration bubble up inside you until it becomes your new reality.
