This is shaping up to be a month and a year of extreme self-development for you, Aquarius, so fasten your seat belt. This must inevitably involve the hidden places within you, and, sure enough, your sector of interior work and unconscious process is strongly affected. The January 10th Full Moon eclipse, taking place with the Sun and Mercury there, conjunct Saturn and Pluto, is quite powerful in this regard, implying significant metamorphosis. Also, through Chiron, you may well encounter inner wounding, the residue of early childhood trauma, that is attempting to get in closer communication with your more conscious manifestation. There is also an ongoing focus on home and family matters such as your family of origin or your current dwelling space, contributing to your closing the gap between you and the deep psychological roots of your being. Fluctuations there can lead to new realizations. Your unconscious seems alien to you, and yet can actually be your friend. Great transformation is possible now in your understanding of this important area.
The following was written by our new resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
Dear Aquarius, welcome to 2020. You are now entering a totally foreign land where everything you thought you knew about life is rapidly shifting. The year opens its curtains on a scene that looks different and changing. You might not be able to see the horizon or grasp the shapes of things to come. The sooner you let go of the old paradigm falling away behind you, the quicker you will be able to intuit the future and enter this new path. A necessary period of reflection is upon you to begin the year. You must be willing to let go for the moment and get into a more contemplative mode. Solitude and quiet are your allies right now, and the more willing you are to face yourself and your inner worlds, the clearer the current picture will get. Something totally new is gestating within you, but you must be patient and accept that things are not born overnight. Of course there is always work to do, new projects and missions to accomplish, but Venus still transiting in your sign to begin the year is urging you to soften your hard edges and find some time for grace, pleasure, love and beauty.
Mars enters Sagittarius on January 3rd, and this will be a nice change from Mars transiting in Scorpio for the last few months. Mars in Sagittarius is an invitation to acknowledge your collaborators and to actively seek the support of your friends and community to help you achieve your goals this month. Know who your allies are, and remember that you are not totally alone. You have loads of supporters and fans, so don’t be afraid to seek them out right now if you need support and counsel.
A Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place on January 10th, which brings attention to your health and routine. The body - mind connection is very present for you, as you begin the year, and it’s a good time to acknowledge the importance of keeping your vehicle in shape. If you have been contemplating a new health regimen, the year begins with the impetus to do so. No time spent on your body is ever wasted, and health is truly your wealth. Creating time for physical well being in 2020 will pay off more than you can imagine. This strong astrology as you begin the year supports the implementation of new habits.
The much talked about Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn takes place from January 10th to the 14th, in your soul sector. Issues around authority, your own or people who have power over you are highlighted. It’s a good idea to get clear about your need for control versus where you might be feeling powerless. Sensitivities surrounding these themes have been on the radar in the recent months, and will continue to be. Unearthing your own motivations and desires surrounding authority, power and control will pay off tremendously but you must be willing to look at these complex issues honestly. Mid-month is to a certain extent the culmination of this long process. It could finally start to feel like you are able to surrender to a process you had been resisting until now.
Mercury enters your sign on January 16th which will help dissipate the fog and a certain level of confusion you could of been feeling in the last month. Your mind will start to feel clearer and your ability to express yourself and clarify your intentions will increase. Mercury in Aquarius will square Uranus in Taurus on January 18th, bringing a wave of fresh inspiration for you. Pay attention to dialogues and ideas around these dates as they may contain the seeds of future projects.
The Sun enters your sign on January 20th signaling the beginning of a new cycle for Aquarius. You can think of the first two weeks of January as a necessary house clearing, the end of a cycle of growth, and the necessary relinquishing of old outdated furniture. The Sun entering Aquarius should shine its light on the new sprouts coming up, and infuse you with much needed warmth. The old ways must be shed in order to make space for the new that wants to move in; a necessary albeit difficult passage considering you are a Fixed sign. Even though you adore novelty, change might not be as easy as you would hope.
On January 24th, a New Moon takes place in the early degrees of Aquarius in a close square with Uranus in Taurus. This is a promise that things are not going back to the way they were. We are moving toward a totally new paradigm, and change has an important role to play in your life right now. Whether you are envisioning or embodying this change, your ability to move and adapt with what is happening will define the next several months. Set your gaze on the path ahead, and let this new inspiration bubble up inside you until it becomes your new reality.

The Sun represents the Self, one's way of being in the world. It can represent, on different levels, both the ego and the higher Self or soul purpose. It rules Leo and is exalted in Aries. The Sun is the most important 'planet' in the chart and symbolizes one's will and sense of vitality. When the Sun is afflicted (poorly placed or poorly aspected) it could indicate problems with the father, or male role model. The Sun energizes your entire chart, and planets in close relationship to the Sun (by planetary aspect) are emphasized in your personality. If your Sun is prominent in your chart, you will exhibit great power to do and to be.
The Moon represents the personal self, the feelings and the unconscious. It is a reflection of the true self, represented by the Sun. The Moon also stands for security and instinctual or habitual patterns, as well as the ability to relate to others, and to be nurturing to others. The Moon rules Cancer and is exalted in Taurus. It is often contrasted with the Sun as the female receptive principle versus the masculine or positive principle. The Moon represents the feminine and nurturing part of oneself. In a male chart, the Moon represents the feminine within, or the 'anima' and also indicates the type of partner you will attract. The Moon also represents an attunement from the past, which operates at an instinctive or habitual level in your present life.
Mercury represents the mind and intellect, and rules Gemini, sign of duality also Virgo, and has its exaltation in Aquarius. Mercury is an airy planet, associated with all forms of communication and the in-flow and out-flow of intelligence. Its position indicates how your mental function will be expressed, and where techniques and skills are available to you.
Venus is the planet of love and relationship. Venus is in-taking, rather than out-going (as represented by Mars), and rules the signs Libra and Taurus. Venus has its exaltation in Pisces, and is associated with aesthetics, beauty, refinement and romance. Its position in the chart indicates the area in which the give and take of love, affection and sensual pleasure will be expressed.
Mars is the planet of outward activity and animal passion. It rules Aries and is exalted in Capricorn. This fiery planet is masculine in action, versus softer more receptive Venus. When strong in the chart it can indicate a volatile temper, and also great courage. Its position indicates how your personality will assert itself, and what modes of activity will stimulate your physical energies.
Jupiter is the planet of faith, positivism and optimism. It rules Sagittarius and is exalted in Cancer. Jupiter represents the principle of expansion, versus contraction (as represented by Saturn) and the aspirations of the higher self. Its position in the chart indicates how your faith will be expressed, and what modes of activity will stimulate self-confidence.
Saturn is the planet of limitation and contraction, and the trials of life experience. This includes disciplive, punctuality, and the conservation of material resources. Saturn rules Capricorn and is exalted in Libra, and is limited and material, versus unlimited faith (as represented by Jupiter). It indicates areas where the personality will be restricted by fears and lack of confidence, and also areas which are important to be worked on in this lifetime.
Uranus is the planet of freedom and revolutionary vision, the urge for change and the ability to visualize new possibilities. Uranus rules Aquarius, and is exalted in Scorpio. It is also associated with mental studies, electricity and astrology. Its position indicates the arena of originality and freedom from conventional thinking in your life.
Neptune represents the universal ocean of oneness with all beings. It is thus highly compassionate, also idealistic, imaginative and self login or even self undoing, and can be associated with drugs or media, as fantasy expressions. Neptune rules Pisces, and finds its exaltation in Cancer. Its position indicates where there may be confusion and also great creativity in poetic or musical fields. Neptune has been called the higher octave of Venus.
Pluto is a force for change that can be destructive in its power. Pluto rules Scorpio, and is exalted in Leo. Pluto is related to will, and intense passion, and has a reputation for ruthlessness. As god of the underworld Pluto brings the deepest compulsions into the light. Its position indicates areas of life that must ultimately become transformed as part of the soul's evolution.
Chiron is a small planet, or 'planetoid' that was only discovered in 1977, and which has already shown itself to be quite powerful in an individual's chart. Occupying an eccentric orbit between Saturn and Uranus, and named for the centaur physician of Greek myth who taught ancient wisdom to mankind, Chiron represents the archetype of the "Wounded Healer" and is associated with shamanism and going within to heal oneself. Its discovery is synchronous with the rise of the holistic health movement. Chiron's position in the chart reveals where one has been wounded, and where also there is the opportunity for discovering healing from within and sharing this discovery with other people, since from our wounds arises our compassion for the suffering of others. The position of Chiron, by house and sign, can also show where we have talent and access to ancient wisdom, as well as where we may depart from the mainstream in service to a higher practicality. Those with prominent Chiron are likely to be educators and spiritual healers.
As goddess of the harvest and the natural process of fertility and renewal, Ceres represents the process of nurturing and motherhood in an individual chart, and has been attributed to the sign Cancer as a co-ruler with the Moon, as well as to the signs of Taurus, Scorpio and Virgo.
The astrology of the asteroid Pallas indicates the creative use of the mental faculty in combination with ageless wisdom, and is also involved with the arts, especially the plastic arts such as sculpture and pottery, and with medicinal remedies.
The astrology of Juno indicates partnering energy of intimate relationships, as in the more modern issues of where the boundaries are with another person, how much sharing is appropriate, versus holding back, are there issues of bitterness and jealousy, or projected authority and control onto another person, and intimacy needs in general.
In the astrology of Vesta issues of sexuality and completeness unto oneself predominate. Possible associations are the woman (or man) who chooses celibacy, but as a nun or monk takes on a higher purpose than normal family life, also issues of sexuality and who is ultimately served in the process, self or other.
While the lower expression of Eris might manifest as the lust for struggle and violence, there is also a more positive manifestation in the most basic defense of one's rights in standing up to established power, by violence if necessary. By recognizing and coming to terms with this potentially violent factor in ourselves we can grow as humans and become more whole.
The astrology of Haumea seems to be related to love of the natural world and to the fecundity of natural process. This archetype thus signals profound connection to Nature, connection to Source, and a form of natural charisma.
The astrology of Makemake is related to love of the natural world and to the activism associated with defending the environment. This archetype thus signals a profound connection to nature that is quite similar to the archetype of Haumea, his fellow traveler in the Kuiper Belt, with the same astronomical designation and also named from the pantheon of indigenous gods and goddesses.
The Part of Fortune (from the Latin Pars Fortuna) is the only Arabian astrology part still commonly used in modern astrology. It indicates an area of life that is a fortunate one for the native. The house in which the Part of Fortune is placed indicates an area of your life which is likely to be a successful one for you; an area where the applications of your skill will bear fruit. Its is where you will find good luck and happiness.

Leos can be quite determined and usually get their way when they really want to. They also possess great integrity, and are a natural leader.
Virgos love work, service to others and the gathering of the fruits of the material world, as symbolized by the harvest. They are also likely to be a good conversationalist, with wide-ranging knowledge and interesting ideas. They can be analytical and perhaps overly fond of detail, with perfectionist tendencies, and they may miss out on the big picture by concentrating on the micro. It also benefits them to learn the fine line between discrimination and criticism.
Libra is the sign of harmony and relationship. The Sun in Libra is at the time of the Equinox, when day equals night, and similarly Libra strives for balance between polarities. Librans are known for their good taste, elegance and charm. They are seekers of harmony and beauty.

Capricorn people are ambitious and practical, and are likely to have an excellent sense of social responsibility. They also tend to be conscious of social mores, perhaps to the point of over-concern. Their natural caution allows them to advance slowly and steadily to the top.
Aquarians have a rebellious nature, and are eccentric, spontaneous and original. They are forward thinking and detached, and can seem conservative though they really are not very much so. They are scientifically minded and logical, and confident in manner.
Pisceans are friendly and likable, and yet can be very moody and introspective as well. Pisces is a watery sign, concerned with subtle emotions and secret mystical depths. Pisceans are not entirely at home in this world.
