Last month the planetary power shifted from the West to the East, so you are in a period of personal independence as the year begins. This is the time to create conditions as you like them rather than adapting to existing situations. Other people are always important, but your personal merits, your personal initiative are the important things now. This is a time where you are supposed to ‘make things happen’ rather than let things happen.
Most of the planets are above the horizon and your 10th house is still strong this month. So
career and outer ambitions are still the major focus. Family is supporting your career goals now, and
being successful is the best way to serve them. Many exciting and happy things have been happening
in your career for the past few months, and the trend continues this month. Pay rises, promotions, new
and exciting career opportunities are all happening. Even the family as a whole (and a parent figure in
particular) are succeeding in the world.
Jupiter travelling with Uranus until the 22nd shows many spiritual breakthroughs –
breakthroughs in understanding and ability. These new breakthroughs can lead to career change or
You have been in a cycle of prosperity for the past year, and this continues. On the 22nd Jupiter
moves into your money house, bringing prosperity and financial good fortune. Parents, bosses, parent
figures, authority figures are supportive financially – you are in their financial favour. Status and
prestige are not so interesting to you right now – the more you earn, the more successful you feel. You
are not yet in your financial peak for the year – this will happen March and April – but it is still a
There is a solar eclipse in your 11th house on the 4th. This eclipse is benign to you, but shakes up the world around you. This brings the testing of friendships. It brings dramatic events in the lives
of friends, shake-ups and upheavals in groups or organizations that you are involved with. Groups that
seemed ‘rock solid’ in the past are now seen as ‘shifting sand’. Every solar eclipse brings job
changes and changes in your health regime and diet, and this one is no different. There are dramas in
the lives of employees, and employee turnover now as well. Children are in some financial crisis and
are forced to make dramatic adjustments and changes.
Until the 20th your 11th house of friends is powerful. So this is a time to be more involved with
friends, to gen up on your science and technological understanding and to enjoy the pleasures of group
activities. Until the 15th this is not only fun but profitable as well.
Health is basically good – though the eclipse can bring up health ‘scares’. These scares could
force changes in your health regime. But health is much better than it seems. You can enhance it
further by paying more attention to your spine, knees, teeth, bones and skeletal alignment until the
20th, and your calves and ankles after then. Regular back, knee, ankle and calf massage will do
wonders this period.
