In January 2016 we finally see what Saturn in Sagittarius is really all about. Finally, a fresh breath of fiery energy and hope for humanity. This is a favorable transit for all because “Sagittarius the Archer” encompasses the implementation of Truth, Justice and “The American Way.”
Think back to 1985/86/87/88. That period of time was the last transit of Saturn in Sagittarius. As the transit progresses I will publish further details for each Zodiac Sun sign and more Mundane astrological tid-bits too, as relevant. For now it is enough to know that the beginning of 2016 really and truly is a fresh new start.
Other relevant Zodiac details include;
The Sun is in Capricorn until 1/19/15 and Pluto remains in Capricorn for many more years. (Take your time and do it right, but make sure to get it done.)
Venus is in both Sagittarius and Capricorn. On 1/23/16 she enters Capricorn and stays put until she moves into, ( via a graceful exit,) Aquarius on 2/17/16.
The new moon on January 7-8-9 falls in the sign of Capricorn and the Full moon in Leo on the 22-23-24 . It is during the January 2016 lunations that you find out exactly what level of support is available to you from family, friends and business associates....... Also, please note that both the New Moon and Full Moon fall very close to the Mercury Retrograde stations, please expect and be prepared to deal with delays and setbacks, work with that energy don't fight it. If you have to re-do t, just re-do it and be done with it.
Mercury takes a quick bow and bids farewell to Capricorn on January 4 and steps into Aquarius, (for 1 measly degree,) only to return immediately to Capricorn until 1/25/16. Mercury likes Aquarius, so he'll be back , as soon as he finishes tweaking his Capricorn agenda. During the retrograde period he checks/cross-checks/triple checks everything one more time and after tweaking projects mightily in preparation for Valentines Day, on the 17th of February he is completely satisfied and the retrograde period is truly over.
From January 3, through late February 2016 Mars is also tweaking his New Years agenda, early in the month he gets the last stamp of approval, ( and a sweet kiss goodbye,) from Lovely Libra and off he goes to meet up with Scorpio and get with it and get even, (by golly!)
(Wow, see what I mean about January 2016 being a really truly honest in-jun new start to the new year? No? OK, just call me or request an appointment by email. I am happy to clarify the details of the New Year as they pertain specifically to You! )
To sum up the many details of this pre-snippet discourse it is safe to say that all of us bear the responsibility of managing and balancing our family lives and work/educational responsibilities during this somewhat stressful January 2016 Mercury Retrograde New Years month.. Do not avoid the issues that arise, no, acknowledge them and face them down. So go for it, handle it, fix it and be happy. True success comes from tending to the details, more than once perhaps. The long term result is a large dose of personal satisfaction that comes from knowing that hard work and repetition, properly applied can create the type of energy to moves mountains. That is the gift hidden in this months stars, Mercury Retrograde and all!!
Here is how the month plays out for each of the 12 Zodiac Signs, read on;
ARIES * YOU WERE MAGNIFICENT OVER XMAS * NOW GO PLAY AND HAVE SOME FUN UNTIL MONTH'S END * THEN YOU CAN REST AND HAVE SWEET DREAMS!
Yes Aries, the foreign ports of call and the treks into the wild blue yonder are now behind you and work beckons. You take up the slack, (of course,) and get the ball rolling again in no time flat. By mid month you are bursting with energy and raring to go. Ah, but where should you go? Hmm, the choices are many, be selective. Choose to spend time and catch up on events with old friends and as for the new, friends well make some time for then too, as I said the choices are many and all roads lead to Rome and a rip roaring good time. At months end home is where your heart is and drifting off to sleep watching a candle burn brings the sweetest dreams imaginable.
TAURUS * BE THE FIRST TO STORE THE ORNAMENTS AND RETURN TO WORK * DUTY CALLS AND CAREER KUDOS AWAIT! MAKE TIME FOR LOVE AND PROSPER!
Hard work and intense romance is the norm for January. It's a lot on your plate Taurus but no worries, you've got a handle on it. You know what to do and and when to do it and you are correct. On the job and with your lover stand your ground, remain firm in your methods, they are correct. Your co-workers slowly trickle back in to the workplace from holiday vacations and the workload eases, just in time for you to be with the one you love. Dream of far away lands and foreign ports, (just the 2 of you,) and if there is stress in your love life then you know exactly what to do to settle the issues once and for all! At months end think before you speak, be wise!
GEMINI * FUN AWAITS AS THE NEW YEAR SEES YOU LEARNING A NEW SKILL AND COMMUNICATING WITH EXOTIC PORTS OF CALL AND FOREIGN VISITORS!
Set your yearly goals early in the month, and don't forget about the New Year's resolutions you made while nursing the atrocious hangover from that wild ride home from that wild and crazy party on New Years eve. Yikes! I'm sure you'll remember all that action for years to come. Ah well it's all behind you now and a bright new start awaits. So gather up your gumption and go Gemini. Back to work full speed ahead.. And after work??? Well this is where it gets good, after work, (especially during the full moon in Leo 1/25/16,) you brilliantly combine work and play, love and money and by months end you are planning a long journey to a place far away with the one you love by your side, how romantic life is.
CANCER * YOU ARE THE FIRST ON THE BLOCK TO START YOUR TAXES AND OOH-LA-LA ROMANCE IS DEEP AND MEANINGFUL!
Cancer is a Moon Star in January. Your emotions reach a fevered pitch during the Leo full moon on the 23/24/25 . Control yourself. Do your taxes. That helps tame those volatile emotions and gives you a stable platform from which to plan the future. You're especially attractive at the New Moon in Capricorn on the 8/9/10th and partnership relationships, (both love and work) are the areas of focus. If there are problems they are blindingly obvious. If all is well it is better than it has ever been. It could go either way, it could be good or bad but at least it will be obvious. Do your taxes and stabilize yourself. Ah, at months end comes blessed relief in the form of romance and planning a romantic get-a-way. And best of all your taxes are done.
LEO * NEW PARTNERSHIPS AND OLD ENEMIES COLLIDE AND YOU HANDLE ALL IN TRUE ROYAL FASHION, REGALLY OF COURSE!
Early January sees you studiously performing your work duties and musing on the various choices available to you as the year unfolds. Even now there are many options to consider. The full moon in Leo brings any hidden issues involving legalities and health into a glaringly bright spotlight. By mid-month you confront open enemies and rally friends and partners to your side and then you duke it out, (growling royally of course.) You love life is still a mess, but take heart oh noble one, resolutions do exist, permanent resolutions. These solutions are highlighted during the full moon week and throughout the Mercury retrograde period. All in all January is a time of noble negotiations leading to long term truces which pave the path to the future and a better, happier life.
VIRGO * NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS ARE ADHERED TO AND YOU GLOW WITH GOOD HEALTH * EXPECT OVERTIME ON THE JOB!
Well Virgo all I can say about early January is finish up holiday festivities, (and your schedule,) give your true love a kiss, because it's time to pay heed to work projects. It's your sign the rest of the zodiac turns to when organization is needed. You are the best, hands down at “fixing it” even when it isn't broken! If it isn't broken you improve it and if it is broken you fix it with long term results. I am not flattering you Virgo, you are the best organizer in the whole zodiac. The first call to action comes with the Mercury Retrograde, 1/5./2016 and I cringe when I think of the seriousness of the task(s) before you, and I also know if anyone can handle it, you can. Better touch base with old pals and previous employers to help you get it all under control which of course you will, magnificently!
LIBRA * BE CREATIVE AND SOLVING PROBLEMS IS A BREEZE * LOVE PUTS SPARKLES IN YOUR EYES AND A SPRING IN YOUR STEP * WHAT FUN!
So tra-la-la the new year looks bright and so it is. But, (there's always a but,) expect career tension the first ½ of the month. Especially during the New Moon in Capricorn.. Handle it you must. And of course you handle it wisely and fairly finding the perfect balance by th Full Moon in Leo on 23/24/25th. No, you are not being conspired against, (even though early in the month it may feel that way,) uh-uh what you need to look at it is that tendency you have to keep the peace at all costs to avoid conflict. That doesn't work this month so find the strength and skills to make a stand, politely of course, against unfair circumstances and by the Leo Full Moon the problems are solved, life is good. in spite of that pesky Mercury retrograde. Now, about that romantic get a way you were thinking about? The time is exactly right, go enjoy yourself because next month, duty calls and you are much needed at work.!
SCORPIO * A NEW YEAR *A NEW PATH * A NEW YOU IN THE NEW YEAR * JANUARY IS AMAZING FOR SCORPIO *
A new you in shiny new surroundings looms large in your mind most of the month. Rats! Early January sees your hopes and plans stalled while you take care of all that unfinished business that needs tending to. That includes the health issues. All this finally comes to a head over the full moon in Leo on the 25th. Whatever your challenges are expect a crystal clear revelations of pertinent facts. That is all to the good because then you know what to do, how to do it and where you need to go to get it done properly and once and for all. Whew, that is a lot Scorpio but no worries by mid month you have the energy and the information all together and can do exactly what you need to do to stabilize your home, health and family. Wow you did it All!
SAGITTARIUS * SISTERS AND BROTHERS AND AUNTS AND UNCLES ALL NEED YOUR CHEERFUL OPTIMISTIC OUTLOOK *GIVE LOVE FREELY BUT WATCH THE BUDGET!
Well golly gee Saggie, when I look at your horoscope for January I see a wee bit of financial stress. Perhaps these unexpected expenses aren't really so unexpected after all and even though initially you feel disappointed and blue you bounce back fast.. Use the Mercury retrograde energy wisely, a tweak here, a tweak there and voila, this adjusted plan is much better than the original. Because Saturn is now firmly entrenched in Sagittarius I would be derelict in my duties not to advise you of the reality of having “Old Father Time * the Taskmaster” transiting your first house of self for the next 2 years. January of 2016 is when you actually begin to feel the influence. But, (there's always a but and this is a good “But”,) as this transit takes hold you also experience long term beneficial results. By the end of this transit you truly know and understand what real success is. The pay back? It isn't financial, that you earn with hard work. Nope the pay back is far more valuable then money. You earn the love and respect of friends and family and your community and grow wise beyond your years as you mature. With the help of Saturn in your sign you earn the love, respect and admiration of others that you so richly deserve!
CAPRICORN * YOU REGAIN CONTROL OF PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES AND MAKE WISE FINANCIAL DECISIONS * OF COURSE!
Boy oh boy has Capricorn been under the gun for the past 18 months. Life has been plain old tough! This continues for a while longer yet, but no worries Capricorn, the “ka-boom” part is over. It's all out in the open and you can and will fix it properly, in a timely manner. So, whatever issues have been brewing and stewing unresolved especially in the areas of love and family and your community too, well these areas demand attention right now, pronto! You already know this and are preparing yourself. Good, way to go Capricorn. I have the utmost confidence in your ability to not only fix it but fix it right and fix it permanently. How? Take the high road and trust yourself. PS : When all is said and done your income improves too.
AQUARIUS * TIS THE TIME OF THE YEAR TO DO IT RIGHT OR DO IT OVER * MAYBE BOTH! BY MONTHS END YOU ARE ALL CAUGHT UP!
Expect trouble early in the year. Welcome it, lay out the red carpet and let it march right in so you can handle it once and for all. You might have to handle it twice but you will handle it, brilliantly and by months end trouble bids you farewell and you are filled to the brim with happiness and pizzazz. Ah, that frisky pizzazz now needs tending to, so put on that brand new tie died velvet outfit, liberally apply the eye glitter and step out on the town in those high heeled loafers. Make an appearance at the very place where the now vanquished imp of past problems resides. “ Or just make an appearance wherever you choose, you'll find are welcomed wherever you go!
PISCES * FRIENDS AND FOES ALIKE REQUIRE ATTENTION * TRUST YOUR INTUITION * EXPECT PROPHETIC DREAMS AT MONTHS END!
Oh my Pisces, the start of 2016 is a rough one. Remember all those naughty things you did last year. Yep, all of then. Take a minute I know the list is long. You remember most of them, yes? Oops, whats that behind you Pisces? Yep, that sure is trouble, right behind you. Better turn and face it head on and wrestle that trouble monster down, give it a good hard kick into the ozone, out of the universe and into oblivion. And trust your intuition too, it serves you well and is brilliantly accurate all month long. No, no, no Pisces you were not really that bad Pisces, and the way you handle your friends and foes alike in January proves it over and over again. You are loved!
With Love and Light To Each and All in January 2016 From Mystic Wendy!
