Sun Signs for January 2020

The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in January and in 2020. The emphasis this month is on the signs Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Sagittarius seeks, Capricorn climbs, Aquarius befriends, and Pisces believes. Mars is in Sagittarius from the 3rd and adds adventure to our lives. It squares Neptune later in the month and we should be clear about our actions. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3; and Mercury in weeks 1 and 2, are in Capricorn; this makes us practical and ambitious. The Sun in week 4, and Venus in weeks 1 and 2, and Mercury in weeks 3 and 4 are in Aquarius. This makes us friendly and theoretical. Venus is in Pisces in weeks 3 and 4; we may get the feeling that we are surrounded by love. Jupiter in Capricorn can benefit business, government, and people at the top. While in Capricorn for a year, Jupiter starts moving toward Saturn and Pluto that are already there. This will bring many and varied events to business, government, and people at the top. And faster moving bodies stimulate this as they pass through Capricorn. From a personal standpoint, we will be clever, diplomatic, practical,and focused on cause and effect. Also, if we define Saturn and Pluto together as a problem, Jupiter approaching them can represent help. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. Also these signs and Virgo and Capricorn should show increased originality. Saturn is in its own sign, Capricorn. It stays through 2020, and becomes very strong. Saturn here is about being practical and realistic. It represents setting and achieving goals and is climbing the mountain of accomplishment. Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgos should become more practical. Capricorns, Aries, Cancer, and Libra need to get rest, avoid overwork, and remember to seek joy. Saturn is approaching Pluto. We should be a bit cautious to avoid loss because this is rather extreme. There will be reality checks. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer on the 9th and 10th contrasts casual versus formal outlooks. And a New Moon in Aquarius 24th, 25th, and much of the 26th gives a new start in social and intellectual life. Let’s be sensible and do something special under eclipses.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Aries on the 2nd and 3rd and in Libra on the 15th, 16th, and much of the 17th.
The Pluto Uranus square is over. It made the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you heard about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas, the floods and fires in Ca. In ’17, and the hurricanes of ’17, this was one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represented among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife.
The Pluto Uranus square is over. Pluto opposed the Cancer planets in the U.S. Chart from 08 until ’23. Uranus squared them from ’10 until early ’19. The result of this is that we are changed. This shows more important effects on us and the world than just expecting things to return to the way they were before it started. It seems of value for us to think about the things that have changed during this time.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 14, 18, 19, & 25. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
