The Moon

The Full Moon takes place this month on January 10th. This Full Moon is karmic. The Full Moon is the companion lunar eclipse to last month's solar eclipse. The Full Moon in Cancer takes place at 20 degrees on the North Node.

Cardinal zodiac signs will feel the impact of this eclipse (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, and Libra). This is a signal to let go of matters that relate to home and to focus on work matters that bring in revenue.

However, there are other astrological changes taking place during the month of January that set the stage for the entire 2020 year.


Mars is about power and passion, determination and extreme focus, and it's the ruler of Scorpio and Aries. Mars was direct all of 2019. It turns retrograde after nearly two years of direct motion in September, so now is a good time to get projects done while the retrograde season for the warrior is still far away.

On January 3rd, Mars enters Sagittarius, the sign of its detriment. While in Sagittarius it takes on broader themes such as learning and travel. January makes for a positive time to sign up for classes or travel to a distant location for a business seminar.


January begins with Venus in Aquarius. Venus rules Taurus and Libra, and while in Aquarius it takes on the flavor of a humanitarian. Aquarius is an air sign, similar to Libra, and so this is a positive placement for the planet of love and property. On January 13th, Venus enters Pisces where it is exalted. This can make love unconditional, even in situations where it's better to set up boundaries in toxic relationships.


Mercury starts the month in hard-working Capricorn, which makes this a great time to set goals down on paper and to get an accountability partner in place.

On January 16th, Mercury will enter Aquarius. If you have a new invention or idea you want to patent, do so before the end of January. Mercury turns retrograde in February while in the sign of Pisces.


Uranus turns direct in the sign of Taurus. Uranus will be in Taurus until the year 2026. Some astrologers are predicting that this year the real estate bubble and financial markets will level off. This is a great time to consider job changes, financial planning and to meet with your investors if you have plans to expand a business or invest in mutual funds.

Saturn conjunct Pluto

On January 12th, 2020 while in the window of the Full-Moon lunar eclipse in Cancer, we have another whopper of an astrological event.

The planet of structure and the planet of control meet up for a one-time event in the sign of Capricorn at 22 degrees. Per numerology, 22 is the Master Teacher, and this singular event can bring up some intense energy for all zodiac signs with personal planets in Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries.

Power struggles and loss can manifest in areas of career and relationships. For Cardinal zodiac signs this can be the impetus of letting go or moving on from entanglements that hold you back from long-term goals.
