You begin your year with a focus on the outer life – the career and outer goals. The great majority – sometimes 90 per cent – of the planets are in the upper half of your chart this month. Your 10th house of career is very powerful, while your 4th house of home and family is basically empty (only the Moon moves through there on the 15th and 16th). The planet that rules the home, Mercury, is retrograde until the 8th. So we have a very clear cosmic directive – focus on the career now and let home and family issues go for a while. Emotional wellness is always important, but the chart is showing that this will happen as a side effect of career success.

The planetary power is mostly in the Western sector now, though this will change in coming months. So your focus is on others, your social life and getting things done by consensus rather than by direct action. Personal independence is not very strong now, so if there are conditions that irk you, make a note of them but don’t do anything yet. The time to make changes will happen soon.

Finance is not a big issue this month. You’re strongest financial days are shown above. Earning power will be strongest from the 1st to the 12th and from the 28th onwards – the waxing (growing) moon periods. The 10th seems like an exceptionally strong financial day. Not only are the aspects good, but the Moon will be at her perigee (her closest distance to the Earth).

Saturn in your 7th house is still testing the love life. The good news is that you’re trying hard. Mercury is in your 7th house from the 5th to the 13th, indicating that you’re giving more focus here – and this is what is needed. The love life improves after the 19th as the Sun starts making nice aspects to the love planet. Your naturally good gift of the gab is a big help. There is good communication with the beloved then. You connect well on the intellectual level.

Your 8th house of regeneration is powerful until the 19th. It’s time to go through your possessions and get rid of what you don’t need or use. Detox regimes are good for the health but also for other areas of life.

Health is excellent this month, and gets even better from the 19th onwards.
