A New Moon in this part of the chart signals a new way of seeing the world, and in avant-garde and articulate Aquarius—New Hope is on the horizon. Matters of personal security and finances may be top of mind and heart on January 6.

A reversal or review occurs in your first house and sign this month, as Mercury retrogrades in Capricorn until January 18. One of Mercury’s traditional significations is movement, so PHYSICALLY speaking, even though you are a fan of unbridled PMA and the Listen To The Body, Ignore The Body approach to life, for now, maybe chill. Your Metaphysical Fitness Program and body goals are likely to be reevaluated. The mind of the Capricornian is complex, somewhat opaque yet definitely purposeful. As the ruler of your mindset house, Jupiter, is back in exciting Aries and a great deal of your MENTAL energy goes to home, family and heritage until May. Thinking about moving to Vermont so you can backcountry ski the Catamount Trail in the winter and shred “The Kingdom” in the increasingly long summers? Planning a bikepacking trip over the Caringorms to reconnect with your Scottish ancestors? Time to make a plan and dive-in with alacrity. While you find satisfaction in hard work, achievements and the material side of life, there is a deeply poetic dimension to you, surly sea goat. Cathartic and purgative Pluto will soon end its journey in your sign and a meeting with the illuminating Capricorn Sun on January 18 indicates a revelation regarding your self-concept. By shedding light on your own darker corners, your truth is in sight. Or in other words, it’s never been a better time to be a SPIRITUALLY motivated Cardiogoth. Your EMOTIONAL cache is dedicated to financial and material values by the latter part of January. A New Moon in Aquarius, your second house of earnings and possessions, means a new sensibility is developing around money. Cool, sensible, Aquarian detachment, allows you to remain objective and manifest effortlessly. Feel free to covet (or more) a new set of Asnes Nato Combats and a pair of Dynafit Low Tech pants in purple for your impending move to Vermont, or a new pair of Ultradynamics Rose Race in 650 for your Outlander trip.


The stunning Sun enters your sign and first house of self-concept and the body on January 20. The Sun is a vitalizing force, so water-bearers should feel an atmospheric river-sized deluge of energy later in the month. Say goodbye to your low PMA and wax your Anses Combat Natos, or buy a pair of Norda 001 Spikes, because it’s time to surf your local white winter wave in the pursuit of both literal and metaphorical PHYSICAL transformation. Enthusiastic and optimistic Jupiter has returned to your Aries third house of MENTAL mindset, thought processes and expression. While this wonderful transit lasts until May 16, don’t sleep on this opportunity to manifest joy, success and authenticity. Low clouds and brain mist may disrupt your typically determined and structured approach to SPIRITUALITY. A Mercury retrograde in your Capricorn twelfth house of seclusion, aloneness and introspection, could either lead you on an unorthodox spiritual path or distract you from these pursuits altogether. Remain flexible, stay nimble, be open. Romantic, gracious Venus transits your sign from January 3 to January 27, sweetening your EMOTIONAL disposition. A Venus transit in your own sign gives love the marquee for the month, both love for self and love for others. The fabulous Aquarian New Moon on January 21 gives you an opportunity for New Hope and progress towards your Future Nature.


The Mars retrograde in your Gemini fourth house of foundations has been a damper on your usually buoyant energy levels. Passionate Mars finally goes direct on January 12 and you just might get your PHYSICAL vibes back. As the ruler of your Taurus third house of mindset, Venus, spends the majority of the month in your secluded twelfth house, MENTAL quietude and introspection will take precedence. January is the ideal time to forest bathe, meditate in the Integratron, and commune Inside The Outside. The mental and SPIRITUAL realms of life are very intertwined for Pisceans this month. Your contemplative twelfth house is spotlit in the last part of January, as the illuminating Sun enters Aquarius on January 20, immediately followed by an Aquarian New Moon the very next day. A new beginning is indicated in your spiritual practice. This is a great time for Type 4 Fun and pushing those kinds of limits. A Cancer Full Moon on January 6 brings a warm, comforting glow to your fifth house of artistry, romance and celebration. Indulge your senses and commune with your crew; this is an incredible opportunity to simply enjoy yourself, party and sit with the EMOTIONAL connections that nourish you.
