January is another of these intensely transformative months, Gemini, as you slide into 2020 with its accompanying societal evolution, contributing to your own. You have quite a lot of energy for exploring interpersonal intimacy, and, as well, for diving down into your own depths for a better connection with the hidden parts of your personality. Your friendships and the group affiliations that you favor are extremely valuable to you over this ending and new beginning, and yet also provide examples of the way that inner wounding can present barriers as you attempt more authentic interaction. There is tremendous intuitional guidance available to you now within the deeper reaches of your psyche, and you might be able to take advantage of this unusual resource to acknowledge the residue of early childhood trauma and forge better integration within you for all your parts. When you can acknowledge every facet of yourself and make friends with them, warts and all, you will have taken an important step forward into wholeness.

Happy New Year Gemini! January arrives and you continue to be busy with a variety of tasks, including your own work but also your responsibilities as a torchbearer for other people’s projects and ideas. This will also be big theme in January with a pile up of planets in Capricorn in your 8th house, which highlights what is shared between you and others. Collaborations and partnerships will also get a boost thanks to Mars entering your opposite sign of Sagittarius on January 3rd. However with this martial power thus firing up your house of relationships, finding common ground could become increasingly tricky.
On January 10th, a quite powerful Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place while your ruler Mercury moves into the heart of the Sun. You could finally start to see the light in regards to a collaboration, a project, an expected funding or an issue around shared finances. Either way, some information or resolve could be coming your way around the second weekend of January that will help you decide on the next step of a significant project. This is an extremely transformational time as well for issues of inner work and intimacy.
From January 10th to the 14th, the much talked about Saturn-Pluto conjunction takes place in Capricorn. There is ample power in this aspect to be realistic, grounded but also push the limits of your resolve with a certain goal or situation. Whatever setback you have been experiencing, the second weekend of January will bring clarifications. It might not be what you want to hear, or you might be required to give up something to make necessary gains. If you have experienced recent misunderstanding with others, you should now be able to untie the knot or at least begin to.
Venus transiting in Aquarius until January 13th is supporting an even and detached approach in your dealings, and you should be able to tackle difficult relational dynamics with a rational mindset. The famous line from Jean-Paul Sartre ‘’Hell is other people’’ might ring truer than usual for you this month. Thankfully you are endowed with social charm and enough wit to defuse any tangles you might be involved in.
On January 16th, your ruler Mercury enters Aquarius bringing attention on your role as a mentor, teacher, or your own learning journey. The mood will start to lighten up considerably in the second half of the month. You can start to see the purpose of a recent dilemma more clearly. Mercury in Aquarius will be supportive for you Gemini folks, although when Mercury squares Uranus on January 17th it could bring up an unforeseen or surprising element. It’s important that you be clear about your own motivation at this time. You might feel mentally restless or agitated but this transit can also bring you the benefit of a different perspective on a recurring problem. When handled mindfully, this aspect supports innovative vision and novel ideas, and is therefore an excellent time to bring a small revolution to your thinking, or to open up your perspectives. Exploring modalities or philosophies that are out of the norm could also be really stimulating for you now. If you feel restless or agitated, this would also be an excellent timing to explore the source of your irritation. You could get significant clues in regard to your own unconscious process during this period of time.
The Sun enters Aquarius on January 20th and a New Moon in Aquarius takes place on January 24th. Tensions will start to ease as your gaze turns toward the future, perhaps encouraging some big ideas you have in the works for 2020. The New Moon in Aquarius will bring a surge of new ideas and far reaching visions as your mind wonders beyond the confines of your daily routines. A powerful reset and an excellent time to set intentions for the year ahead, this New Moon takes place in your 9th house of long distance travel, higher education, knowledge and mind expansion. The seeds planted at this time could also bear fruit later this year at the height of summer.
Venus in Pisces and Mars in Sagittarius are more or less squaring each other for the last few days of January and this aspect will bring a focus on your interpersonal relationships. There could be tension between what you think you should do versus what you feel like doing. Thankfully, Venus in Pisces carries enough social grace to see you through any dilemmas that might arise at this time. In these last few days of January, you benefit when you can favor a compassionate approach over an assertive stance whenever possible.
