This is another in the significant series of transformational months for you, Virgo, and one in which many of your simultaneous arcs of development seem to be coming to a head. Your creativity is greatly stimulated by the entrance of your ruler, Mercury, into your sector of artistic self-expression. You have also for many weeks been concerned with relationship dynamics and alterations, with communicating your needs more directly to another, and as well attempting to see how these adjustments might enhance your own self-development. There is a way that you are letting go of past dysfunctional habits or restrictions to forward-going progress, a process that is also one of new birth. In the aftermath of the powerful Cancer Full Moon eclipse, Venus moving into your opposite sign signals a renewed focus on partnership themes and as well a move toward resolution. You are also finding your way forward through recognition of internal wounding, stemming from early trauma. It takes courage to face your dark places and yet that is the way to move forward.

Happy New Year Virgo! 2020 arrives for you with an intense focus on personal projects, and also your contribution within your community. The five planets currently transiting in the Earth sign of Capricorn are urging you to get your priorities straight; it may be easier said then done. You could feel overwhelmed by the many responsibilities calling your name at this time. However, since most of the action is taking place in Earth signs to begin the year, you should be able to find some supportive and grounding solutions for your current dilemmas if you deal with one thing at a time.
Uranus in Taurus is currently opening up perspectives regarding what you thought was possible. A whole new landscape is emerging and it’s requiring you to stay open to novelty and ideas that might seem a bit ‘’crazy’’ right now. Uranus is a planet in astrology often associated with breaking free from stifling framework, thinking outside of the box, innovations, and revolutions. Since Uranus will be in a supportive trine to your sign until 2026, it could indicate a period of time when you can start integrating some really exciting new perspectives into your life and what you thought life was all about. I encourage you to start exploring beyond the comfortable, especially in connection to philosophy, religion, foreign ideas and mind-expanding experiences. It’s an excellent time to reflect on what feels restrictive and explore different modes of thinking and beliefs that could help broaden your ideas of what is possible.
The stellium of planets currently transiting in Capricorn is calling attention to your personal project, your creativity or your literal and metaphorical children. Projects in the work could require some attention and re-organization to begin the year. You might feel the urge to discard some heavy elements of a project that are draining time and resources. Either way you look at it, the beginning of 2020 requires that you weed out the superfluous and streamline your attention.
Mars enters Sagittarius on January 3rd bringing focus on your home, comfort zone, your family life, and where you anchor down at the end of the day. Mars transiting here until February 16th, could prompt or challenge you to put some energy at home or deal with a conflicting situation. You could also feel more pent up than usual with the need to find outlets for inner tension you are experiencing.
January 10th brings a lunar eclipse in the sign of Cancer and once again, the tides carry supportive change for Virgos or at least something to work with. In your case, the support is available from friends and acquaintances or through groups you are part of in your community. This particular lunar eclipse is sending powerful clues in regards to where you belong, and who can offer you nourishing experiences at this time. You can find comfort amidst your friendships; your participation within a group could reveal to be more enriching than anticipated.
From January 10th to the 14th, the much talked about conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn occurs, representing a turning point, revealing insights about our limits and what must be relinquished. Since messenger planet Mercury will be part of this conjunction, we should get clear signals and insights into the decaying elements in our lives and what must be surrendered if we are to evolve outside of unsustainable circumstances. We might have to contend with some painful realizations. However the pressure contained in the current astrological weather indicates that we have to continue moving with what wants to happen whatever this might mean for you. Tectonic shifts are occurring and there is much to be excited about for you, since Capricorn is trine to your sign indicating supportive changes brought through hard work and a sober outlook.
Venus enters her exalted home of Pisces on January 13th and will transit there until February 7th bringing purifying waters to your relationships. Venus in Pisces sextiles Uranus in Taurus on January 15th, indicating an exciting or foreign element being brought to the table. There could be a new piece currently needing to be integrated in a partnership. After her ingress into Pisces, Venus will be applying to a square with Mars in Sagittarius for the rest of the month. Since both Pisces and Sagittarius are mutable signs like Virgo, this square will have some influence on your partnerships this month and might require that you find positive ways to express building frustrations.
On January 16th, Mercury enters Aquarius followed by the Sun on January 20th. The New Moon in Aquarius takes place a few days later on January 24th indicating a reset and new growth in regards to your health and daily habits. Exploring new health modalities could be a great way to participate with this particular lunar cycle.
