Happy New Year Sagittarius! 2020 begins for you with a major grounding momentum. With Jupiter your ruler newly ingressing into the earth sign of Capricorn, you should start to feel practical perspectives flowing in that support your ideas and visions in tangible ways. The year arrives between two powerful eclipses, the next one occurring on January 10th. For Sagittarian folks, these eclipses trigger powerful churning in the realm of your resources and finances and the way you manage these.
Mars enters your sign on January 3rd endowing you with lasting power and the desire to get things done. Mars will be transiting in Sagittarius until February 16th, giving you vitality and renewed energy. You could feel bolder and more confrontational than usual; it would be an excellent time to find positive outlets for any building tension or get back to a more rigorous physical exercise routine.
A lunar eclipse in the sign of Cancer takes place on January 10th, bringing focus on your partnerships and more specifically your financial associations and obligations with others. This has been an ongoing focal point for the last year and a half. Expansion and progress has been made possible thanks to the support of collaborators, which perhaps could not have been possible otherwise. Uranus in Taurus stations direct on the same day as the eclipse, while messenger planet Mercury meets the Sun in Capricorn offering much clarity. This is especially in connection to how your financial situation and your health are interwoven. A good way to utilize the momentum found at the beginning of the year would be to organize your finances more clearly so that you know exactly what you have to work with. Stress and tension will also need to be addressed; cleaning up your budget and managing your priorities for the year ahead could relieve some of the anxiety you are experiencing.
From January 10th to the 14th, these themes continue to be at the forefront with the activation of the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This conjunction takes place in your second house, ruling your finances and assets, and also what you value. You will want to take stock of what comes in and what goes out, because a realistic appraisal is needed at this time. An opportunity is there to also discard old concepts around money and the time it takes to generate it.
Venus enters her exalted home of Pisces on January 13th, carrying with her a softening influence that will lighten the mood. Venus can express herself freely in the sign of Pisces and for you Sagittarius folks this influence will be most felt at home. You could feel the need to retire into the privacy of your dwelling space and share special moments with your loved ones. Venus in Pisces supports a peaceful atmosphere in your home, however you might find it hard to relax while Mars is still in your sign, extending through mid-February. A good solution would be to use this time to work around your house, doing renovation or decoration projects that beautifies your home.
On January 16th, messenger planet Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius and will square Uranus in Taurus the very next day; once again questions of time management and schedule could be on your mind. You might be prompt to evaluate your routine and ask yourself if it is truly efficient. How much unnecessary stress is added by time-wasting habits? The second half of January would be a good time to find concrete solutions and start implementing habits that actually free up your time.
The Sun enters Aquarius on January 20th and a New Moon in Aquarius takes place on January 24th in a close square with Uranus in Taurus. There is an ongoing focus on health, routine, daily habits and the way you manage time and stress, with further surprise revelations in store. Uranus in Taurus transiting in your 6th house of health and daily habits for many years to come is your cue to revolutionize that sector of your life. You might have to break away from the constant need to be all the things for everyone or to overextend yourself. Your ruler Jupiter being in Capricorn for the next year indicates an excellent time to conquer any tendency you might have to expand beyond your means, instead focusing on the practical and tangible applications of your dreams.
