This waning cycle encourages forward momentum with commerce, communications and creative imagination. Rahu and Ketu change signs for the coming year and a half, causing grande shifts for all. Shadows and desires, karma and liberation, all find new vantage points, promising transformation in the cycle ahead.
Mercury goes direct Monday, January 25th at 13:46 PST, instigating forward momentum with the mind and all things mental body- including commerce, business, communications and imagination. Retrograde Jupiter continues to give his gaze to Mercury, softening and stabilizing the mind, yet provoking growth and wisdom in ways that may arrive as challenges and learning curves. Jupiter helps you expand. Expand the mind and what you think is possible for yourself. What is in your way of these achievements?
As Mercury continues through PurvaAshada nakshatra, Apas brings support with her watery ways, increasing flow, fluidity and movement. With the conjunction of Venus and Mercury at this time, a powerful creative energy may be felt. Use this creativity for movement, change and supporting transformation. Mercury won't arrive back into Capricorn until February 8th, when he will ask you to revisit themes around forcing outcomes and pushing hard to achieve. Right now, where can you surrender and release? Where do you need more support? Gather resources now for greater stability. Harness the creative energy to help support ingenuity and new pathways for success.
Rahu and Ketu officially move to Leo and Aquarius at 19:09 PST on January 29th. Rahu leaps into Leo, running right into retrograde Jupiter at the edge of this passionate, heart-centered sign. The corridor will be open wide with Rahu and Jupiter standing in the doorway of Leo (sandhi) at the edge, until Jupiter moves deeper into Leo days later. Rahu, however, doesn't move out of the 28 degree range until March. The netherworld will be activated and alive for most of February, supporting connection with the spirit world, liminal space and the transcendence.
The collision of Jupiter and Rahu in Leo will provoke an interesting dance between the god-self and human-self. Saturn gives his stern, forceful gaze to these two planets from his perch in Scorpio. This focused energy will add an extra layer of intensity to the already powerful force of Jupiter and Rahu. When the energy of Rahu and Saturn conjoin, a Rudra effect is stirred. This can bring power, potency and intense movement as well as quick changes. This combination increases the theme of working with power authentically and carefully which will intensify after Jupiter moves to Virgo in August.
Rahu and Jupiter invite an integration of opposing forces. Rahu is a demon who tricked the gods into giving him a drink of their immortal nectar. His craving for immortality, left him severed, chopped in half and still longing for what he could not have. Rahu expresses your human qualities, shadow nature and strong desires. His opposite is Jupiter- ruler of the devas, the gods. He encourages sattva, spiritual pursuits and pure knowledge.

These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.
Aries: Rise and shine. With Sun moving through your 10th house of career, it's time to focus on sharing your work with the world in bigger and bolder ways. Wake up and confront the light within you!

Go deeper, listen carefully and notice where you are functioning in unconscious ways.

There is a lot of learning to be had around these themes right now. A new empowerment is emerging simultaneously. Move through old stories and unconscious patterning. You are able to start re-writing your old programming and conditioning. But first you have to identify what is no longer serving you. Let your heart lead the way!

You can reflect their wisdom back to them. Speak the sweet truth and use your power and authority in conscious, uplifting ways. Awaken the passion in your heart!
Leo: Working with grief and pain is inevitable right now, yet you are resisting this work simultaneously. How can you lean in closer to the heaviness in your heart and listen more closely? You are bringing light to your wounds and beginning to heal parts of yourself that have been overlooked. This deep listening will help you support others in their pain more intently as well. Use your creative powers to communicate your wisdom, experiences and stories. A certain authority and power is emerging within you. The months to come support your empowerment and visibility in new ways. Activate your relationship with spirit as a new resource.

Creativity is available in your hands and words right now. Make sure you do not stifle this or suppress this flow. Let the body be a channel for your messages and creative wisdom. The coming months will support opening and closing doors. Start now by releasing and letting go of what doesn't serve or support your growth, empowerment and deep nourishment. Let the light within be a resource for gathering insights. Allow spirit to help you with this process. Trust your gut.
Scorpio: You are creating safe, structured containment for yourself right now. Trust your boundaries and your slow, steady steps. This insures stable and supportive outcomes.

Your ruling planet, Mars, is in a regeneration phase. Take sacred pauses in order to harvest the wisdom and insights. You are learning a lot about balance. Let the integration of your masculine and feminine energies guides you. The coming months support an increase in visibility and worldly activation. How can you start stepping out and sharing yourself in new, more powerful ways? Where are you resisting?
Sagittarius: Relationships are proving to be supportive and encouraging. Which ones make you feel nourished and connected? Which ones increase anger and resentment? Where are you being malnourished? Healthy boundaries are essential. Take your power back. Who and what are you allowing to leak into your sacred space in unconscious ways? Clarify this! Activate your creativity through spoken and written words and let the computer and internet be a resource for getting your message out. The coming months will require that you look at your dharma more carefully. There is work to be done with your offering to the world. Step towards this purpose with conviction.
Capricorn: The light is on and you are awakening. How are you using this new dawn? Put action steps behind your desires and find ways to activate your passion. You are creating a steady, grounded, clear foundation for yourself. Trust your steps and the roots that are growing deep. Continue to move towards balance and support, while noticing when you force or try to control outcomes. Add more femininity into your approach- more pauses, releases and fluidity. The coming months will provoke deep, inner changes that stir your entire being. Attend to old shadows and illusions that are keeping you in the dark. Use this new wisdom that is awakening as part of your offering.
Aquarius: Slow and steady still wins the race. Be sure you are taking ample pauses, time for meditation and rejuvenation. With Sun transiting your 12th house, it's not a visible and energized time. Your efforts are best used for attending to your spiritual needs and seeking deeper nourishment. Who and what feels nourishing to you? Move towards this feeling and find new resources that help you deepen this. Release and clarify relationships and environments that don't feel supportive, healthy or satisfying. Strengthen your boundaries. Call upon relationships and resources that can support you in creating new, more nourishing relationships.
Pisces: Share your creativity in bigger and bolder ways. Let your offerings be seen and heard by the world. Simultaneously it's time to clean up residue and old conditioning that is leaving you playing small, resisting your power and your immense creativity. Gather healing resources, extra guidance and support for activating your desires and visions. Friends can support your process and help you gain new insights. Speak and share authentically and notice where you continue to play small, where you resist your creative powers. Align masculine and feminine forces within, in order to maximize gains. Make time for sacred pauses in order for you to hear the messages of spirit arriving.
