This Full Moon is in Cancer
This Full Moon is in Cancer, with the Sun in Capricorn joining Pluto which gives it an added intensity. Secrets can come to the surface with the light of the Sun. Pluto is the unconscious, the Sun is consciousness.
More will be revealed as the retrograde planets -Mercury and Venus-go direct and move to join Pluto.
Now through the month we have 2 personal planets retrograde-both Venus and Mercury. Venus is retrograde until 29th January, plus Mercury is now retrograde until 4th February.
They are both personal planets in the signs of Aquarius/Capricorn. Our communications and what we value are now up for inspection. Retrogrades are times to reflect and edit, to go back over the past and correct our mistakes.
Courage is needed to make changes.
Mars changes sign on 24th January, into a sign of its exaltation. That means it can give of its best. Mars in Capricorn is focused and has a plan of action. Its organised and authoritative. Its the Commander in Chief of the army. This is the ideal time of year to write down your goals and intentions. It moves into Aquarius on 6th March.
Capricorn is an earth sign, so compatible with water signs (Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer) and other earth signs (Taurus and Virgo).
However Pluto is still moving slowly through Capricorn. With Venus joining Pluto issues around love, power and money are in the news. In mythology Venus is likened to Persephone who was abducted into the Underworld. However she became the Queen of Souls.
Sun in Capricorn
Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. It’s represented by Old Father Time, dark, sombre and bleak. Capricorn relates to The Hermit and The World in the tarot.
Saturn demands simplicity, realism and truth wherever it touches our charts.
Saturn in its own sign of Aquarius is ‘strong’. It offers us a down-to-earth view of the world and being grounded. Aquarius connects to our networks, our community and groups of like-minded friends.

- Authoritarian. Being repressed by others.

The Sun changes sign and moves into Aquarius on January 20th.
Mercury in Aquarius Mercury is now in the sign of Aquarius -a sign connected with networks and community. Mercury stays in this sign until 10th March when it moves into Pisces. The main news is that it went retrograde on 14th January. However it will go back into Capricorn on 26th January until 14th February. This is a time to complete unfinished business. Serious decisions may have to be made. Commit to the truth in your relationships.
Venus- The Lover and Planet of Money
On 5th November 5th Venus moved into the serious sign Capricorn. Venus will now be in Capricorn until 5th March as it went retrograde on 19th December. It joins Pluto on 11th and 25th December 2021 and then again this year on 3rd March.
Venus is connected to values and how much we earn is how much we value ourselves.
Mars- The Warrior
Mars is in Sagittarius until 24th January when it moves into Capricorn- its sign of exaltation.
Jupiter: The Explorer/Teacher
Where Jupiter is placed in your chart is where you find your Faith. Jupiter is now in Pisces from December 29th. Water signs then benefit-Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces until May 10th 2022. It then moves into Aries as it is moving really fast. It re-enters Pisces on October 29th until December 20th 2022.
Saturn: The Strategist/Authority
It is now in Aquarius, a sign it co-rules with Uranus. The theme of last year is Saturn in a tense relationship (a square) with Uranus. This is the old versus the new. Rebellion and protest marches were seen in the news on a daily basis. Which side are you on? Do you obey the rules? Or do you revolt? This last square is on December 24 but it is still ‘in orb’. Jupiter is now strong so can mitigate its effect.
Neptune: The Dreamer/Visionary
Mars is applying to Neptune making a square aspect on 11th January a day to be aware of illusions and deception. Scandals may surface in the news.
Uranus- The Renegade/Awakener is now direct
Uranus takes approx 7 years to go through a sign and always brings change/revolution. It is the planet that rules inventions and genius. Its now in Taurus (May 2018-April 2026 approx.) and we are witnessing the alarming news about climate change. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and as it’s an earth sign, we are now concerned with agriculture, our food chain and an awakening to our planet’s resources. In our daily lives Uranus wants to shake thing up. Cut out old wood.
Pluto is the slowest moving planet and currently travelling through Capricorn from 2008 until 2024. It is the God of the Underworld and the unconscious. It is assigned to Scorpio who also have Mars as their ruler. The transit of Pluto in Capricorn calls for deconstruction of the establishment and institutions.
Each sign of the zodiac is connected to one of these archetypes.
Aries: The Warrior, Taurus: The Lover, Gemini: The Storyteller, Cancer: The Mother,
Leo: The Sovereign, Virgo: The Healer, Libra: The Diplomat, Scorpio: The Transformer,
Sagittarius: The Explorer, Capricorn: The Strategist, Aquarius: The Renegade and Pisces: The Dreamer.
