Weekly General Horoscopes (Updates on Monday) - 20 January 2020
While there is nothing coming online that wasn't a theme in your life last week and nothing is ending the dynamics are starting to change. Last week began with five of the six planets in your career sector aligned, creating an intense amount of focus on your professional life or the area of your life where your competitive energies are channelled. It was in the second half of last week that the intensity began to ease. It began naturally, with the planets in your career sector starting to draw apart but became more pronounced when Mercury left your career sector and returned to your friendship sector on Friday, following on from where Venus left off earlier last week. The Sun's departure and return to your friendship sector on Tuesday will continue that trend, leaving behind four planets in your career sector but making life more balanced. Helping to maintain that balance is an increase in adventurous energy this week.
The Sun is making its first move of 2020 and it is one that he makes at this time every year, though with big implications on both fronts. The Sun's departure from an adventurous part of your chart on Tuesday and return to your career sector is the point in each year when your new professional year officially gets going. While in previous years, with Pluto in an adventurous part of your chart since 2008 and Saturn since 2017 the spirit of adventure hasn't gone off the boil, it has moved into the background. With Jupiter still in the first full month of his 12 month visit to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, that won't be the case this year. At the same time, while the Sun's return to your career sector is an ordinary event, with Saturn just two months away from his first visit in three decades and Mars his first in two years, this is the start of a major new professional chapter. Adventurous and professional forces are both becoming empowered.
The Moon continues to make an impact, though in a different way than it did last week. The Moon will spend the first 28 days of each year making a complete orbit of all 12 areas of your chart, giving you a window into each for the first time in the context of a new year. Last week the Moon travelled through areas of your chart where there isn't a lot of planetary activity if any. It is a visit to one of those areas that is just wrapping up on Monday, with the Moon taking a deep dive into work and job matters. This week the Moon is travelling through a heavily populated part of the sky, amplifying the forces already there. It begins when the Moon joins Mars in your relationship sector on Monday, with the two fuelling a lot of strong emotional and passionate responses. On Wednesday the Moon is off for a deeper dive into money matters, just a day after the Sun leaves your financial sector. It is over the weekend that the Sun and Moon will meet up to create the first New Moon of 2020, in an adventurous part of your chart.
As the planets begin to spread out we no longer have the cosmic log jam that we had last week, with Venus extending her lead on the other planets in order to give the Sun and Mercury some breathing space. Last week began with not only the Sun and Mercury aligned in your relationship sector but with half the solar system aligned there. At the time, in her final days in your financial sector, Venus was doing her own thing, more focused on updating your financial wish list. As first Mercury left your relationship sector last Friday and then the Sun on Tuesday, this will see a lot of the intensity drop back, while still leaving your relationships with the resources they need. This gives the Sun and Mercury a chance to turn their attention onto your financial situation and money matters, returning to your financial sector where Venus was last week. However, Venus has moved on and in her first full week in an adventurous part of your chart is fuelling a desire for adventure.
It is not that the Moon will divide the majority of its time this week between focusing on matters of the heart, work and job matters and your relationships and more that this will amplify what is already the main areas of focus. The Moon not only joins Mars in a playful part of your chart on Monday but during the Sun's final 24 hours in your busy work sector. If that means having to juggle to find the right balance between work and play then this is not just an issue for Monday. For while the Sun will leave your work sector on Tuesday this will still leave four planets here, three of which are some of the most powerful planets in the solar system. Even when the Moon leaves a playful part of your chart and returns to your work sector on Wednesday Mars will stay on, continuing the balancing act between work and play. Meanwhile, the Sun, Moon and Mercury will all meet up in your relationship sector over the weekend, to create the first New Moon of 2020.
We are still in the first three weeks of the year but already the dynamics are shifting. What we have this week that we didn't last week is diversity. The faster moving planets are starting to move on and populate new areas of your chart or at least bring new energy into already active areas. One area of your chart where this will be noticeable is on the relationship front. While you have had Neptune in your relationship sector since 2012, having just turned direct in November he hasn't tried to compete with more active areas of your chart. However, that has changed with Venus, the planet of love's return, with your relationships all of a sudden back on your radar again. Another example is on the job front, where things are not starting from scratch but where the Sun and Mercury are picking up from where Venus left off. At the same time, the Moon's return to your home and family sector on Monday, for its first visit of 2020 and since Mars' return, will put a lot more focus on home, family and/or property matters.
Sometimes when you have a lot of diversity or a lot of different areas of your chart all becoming active at the same time, apart from making life a lot more interesting, it can create competition or conflict. When that happens, different areas of your life are competing with each other and there can be stress. This is not the case this week and if anything, there is harmony. You will see this in a surge in activity on the communication front, just as relationship matters are starting to run more smoothly. At the same time, while Venus' return to your work sector is having a positive impact across the income, work and career fronts, this does not mean that life is about to become all work and no play. Not only are the forces on all three fronts playing a long game, with Mercury in his first full week in a playful part of your chart and the Sun returning on Tuesday, this will create a natural balance. A New Moon here over the weekend will be a chance to embrace the weekend spirit.
As is the case at this time every year, the Sun's return to your home and family sector on Tuesday will turn the solar spotlight onto home, family and/or property matters. While this is just one of the dominant themes this week, starting the week with the Moon just wrapping up its first visit to Scorpio for the year, your instincts will be picking up on a sense of anticipation. On face value, this is nothing more than the Sun returning to put the solar spotlight on home and family matters for the next 29 days, before moving on. This isn't even the most dominant focus this week, with a lot of focus on communication, matters of the heart and on work and job matters. However, what begins as an ordinary focus on home and family matters is set to grow into a period of major new developments over the course of the next five months. A New Moon here over the weekend will bring a chance to explore new options.
The Moon continues to make its grand tour of all 12 areas of your chart for the first time this year, with the first 28 days of each year a chance to check in with each. Last week the Moon travelled through a largely empty area of your chart, checking in on an adventurous part of your chart and your career sector, where there is no planetary activity. This week the Moon reached both a heavily populated part of the sky and a part that is personally significant. It is the Moon's return to Sagittarius on Monday that brings your first chance this year to get your personal bearings and to check in with your own inner voice. This is also the Moon's first visit since Mars returned and as they join forces, this will fire up your passions, drives and competitive spirit, making it easier to get a sense of what excites you. By Wednesday the Moon will turn its attention to income matters and coming full circle from last month's solar eclipse, this could have lucrative implications.
After the intensity of starting last week with five of the six planets in Capricorn aligned and with all six having just been pummelled by an eclipsing Full Moon, things are a lot less intense this week. The faster moving planets are both moving apart and moving on, with Mercury having left Capricorn last Friday and the Sun leaving on Tuesday, bringing your birthday month to a close. This still leaves four planets in Capricorn and three of them playing a long game you are nearly at the point of being ready to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead. While the Sun and Mercury are turning their attention onto your income situation, matters and options, the dwarf planet Ceres is staying on in Capricorn for another week. This gives you time to take a deeper dive into your real needs and priorities and before embracing this expansive and opportune year, make time to redefine your own definition of success.
If it feels like it always takes you a few weeks into any year until you feel motivated or get a feel for its influence then you are right. Yet this has nothing to do with a lack of motivation or enthusiasm and everything to do with the fact that for you, the year doesn't really get started until the Sun returns to Aquarius, which it does on Tuesday. This is the point in any year when your birthday month and new solar year begin and you finally feel engaged. This not something any of your cosmic mates experience, even those whose birthday months begin much later than yours. The reason why you still feel stuck or connected to the old year is because the month long wind down and review of your old solar year always begins just before Christmas. However, you will quickly make up for a slow start because while Venus left Aquarius last week and is now more focused on income potential, she has left you with a clear sense of what you want from the get go.
This is a week where you are likely to notice the lines between the past, present and future become blurred but not in a way that is likely to see life slow down. It is the Sun's return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Tuesday that will begin the month long wind down of your old solar year, something that happens at this time every year. With Mercury having returned last Friday, this is the start of a period of review. However, while this will put a lot of focus on the past, as she spends her first full week in Pisces, Venus and therefore your heart is already looking to the future. While there is a need to make time to hear yourself think there will be little time for navel gazing, not with things firing up professionally this week. At the same time, while there is still a lot of focus on personal and professional networking there isn't the intensity, with balance the key to getting everything you need out of life this week without it taking everything out of you.
