Well, hi there, gorgeous! Boom, right at the top of January, we have good news and plenty of it. First of all, Venus will be in Sagittarius at this time, and the year begins with Mercury direct in Sagittarius is in the sky? Yes, our good friend Mercury, which shows us that new beginnings are here and they're kicking off with a positive bang. Bye, Mercury retrograde and hiya, love.

January promises us a world of change, and we'll start seeing momentum during the first week. On January 4 Mars begins to transit Capricorn, which will completely clear things up when it comes to direction and purpose for two months. With a New Moon on January 11th, we're looking at a way to put our money where our mouths are. Juno goes retrograde on the 12th, which jolts us into reality and lets us make some hefty 'realistic' decisions.




Venus once again enters Sagittarius on the 19th, and that could set our emotions on fire. We'll be happy to receive Mercury in Capricorn the next day, which will cool those flames and get us back in working order. Hey, hey, hey, the 20th brings us Aquarius, which, at this point, brings pure optimism and community. Our Full Moon is in Leo on January 25th, with Uranus going direct in Taurus on January 26th. This month promises us level-headed decisions and a definite ability to give and receive love.

Your big day is the Full Moon in Leo, which comes on the 25, and this will be the culmination of all the days of wishful thinking and good deeds.
