Sagittarius - January 2020
How are you, glorious centaurs?! 2020 comes in with a bang, as masterful Mars charges into your sign on the 4th of January! This is an excellent transit to accompany new year resolution plans; with all the dynamic, no-nonsense Martian energy sweeping in, you will be feeling motivated and excited to get down to the gym and work off all that festive food. It’s a good month in fact for any planning at a personal level, and Mars’s supportive sextile with Mercury after the 20th is particularly effective for discussing new projects and having your say about important issues; you will be assertive and to the point in all your interactions. Just watch for Mars’s square with Neptune from the 17th into early February, creating confusion around domestic matters. This isn’t the best of times for renovating properties or arranging activities with loved ones, confusion and a lack of structure will create frustration around plans.
Good fortune persists this month with Jupiter’s arrival in your money sector; this marks the start of a lucky period in which opportunities to generate extra cash should be prevalent. Windfalls, money-making schemes and simply being in the right place at the right time for some sheer financial luck, are all likely scenarios. A persistent conjunction with the Moon’s karmic south node will linger until the 22nd, creating issues around how you manage your money and encouraging you to make practical choices to set you on the right track for the year ahead. But once this subsides you will probably find that regardless of your choices, that Jupiterian joy will keep your cash flow nice and healthy for the next few months. Jupiter’s conjunction with Mercury during the days up to the 8th is wonderful for making money through your words; you may secure the sale of a book or article now, or be feeling especially persuasive in selling items to others.
A rather marvellous lunar eclipse will light up your house of transformation and regeneration on the 10th of January, and this will be a deeply emotional and intense time for Sagittarians, as you finally find the courage to leave an important but rather toxic relationship behind, and move on to a freer, more healthy place. This might be a difficult transit, inasmuch as anything or anyone leaving our lives can always leave traces of regret, but a parting of ways has been a long time coming, and you have given this relationship as much of your time and patience as you possibly could. Recharge your emotional batteries and focus your attention on those who really add something positive to your world.
Mercury sets foot in your house of communication on the 17th, and as the planet of all things conversational, he creates a double whammy of communicative energy which will enhance your interactions with others. Expressing your thoughts and opinions to the universe will become your number one priority. You might find it harder to quiet your mind now as it races with exciting imaginings, and you will probably need more intellectual stimulation than usual. People who are dreary or uninspiring are best avoided, as are those who can’t see the positive side; you will quickly tire of their lack of imagination. Uranus also squares up to Mercury between the 17th and 23rd, a period of potential issues at work, as colleagues are unreliable and rebellious. The new Moon on the 24th could provide important information about a new job or work opportunity here, which will be a useful stepping stone for you on the way to achieving your career goals. Have a marvellous January!
