January Monthly Horoscope for Each Sign

Astro Overview for January 2020

The first month of 2020 appears to be a dynamic one, which calls for action due to Saturnțs conjunction with Pluto in the sign of Capricorn. This is an extremely powerful astral configuration that can lead to substantial changes in our lives. But in order to see what the rest of the planets are doing and to get a full picture of January’s cosmic climate, we invite you to read the following comments:

Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Capricorn): feasible ideas

The first astral event of this day is Mercury’s conjunction with Jupiter in the sign of Capricorn, an astral configuration that forms on January 2. During and around this day, we enjoy good timing and the mental celerity necessary to turn any situation in our favor. This is due to the fact that we think practically, we are detail-oriented and we try to see the glass as half full, even when the odds are not advantageous.

Mars enters Sagittarius: more energy for exploration

One day later, on January 3, specifically, Mars enters the sign of the Sagittarius. During his transit through his nocturnal home, Scorpio, the force of our plans for fulfillment came from within, but in the weeks to come, the ambition comes from our desire to experience new things and explore other horizons. During his stay in this sign, trips are favored, regardless of whether they are for professional or personal reasons.

Mercury conjunct Pluto and Saturn (Capricorn); Saturn conjunct Pluto (Capricorn): achievable ideals

On January 12, three very important astral events take place: it is Mercury’s successive conjunctions with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn and the conjoining of the two planets, a cosmic configuration whose influence we will feel for a longer period of time. This stellium of planets enhances our ambition and perseverance and prepares us morally for any challenge we might encounter in the next period. Nothing can stop us now.

Venus arrives in Pisces: a heightened sense of empathy

From January 13 onwards, Venus enters Pisces, which is also its exaltation. During its stay in this sign, we do not lack inspiration in everything we intend to achieve, whether we are talking about creative activities or plans through which we can gain the attention of a person we sympathize with. Venus supports us in all these endeavors, giving us the ability to see beyond appearances and to use resources that we didn’t even think we possessed.

Mercury populates Aquarius: original projects

Starting January 16, Mercury moves through the Aquarius sign, giving us original ideas and encouraging bold approaches, both socially and sentimentally, especially in our careers or at the community level. On the one hand, therefore, we are inventive and tackle any challenge coming our way inventively, but on the other hand, we think more intensely than usual about the ways in which we can make a difference in our society. We can even get involved in volunteering.

Mercury (Aquarius) square Uranus (Taurus): unsustainable plans

During January 18, a disharmonious aspect is formed between Mercury, newly entered in Aquarius and Uranus from Taurus, which means that, during or around this day, the ideas we have or the way we act stretch some limits of the conventional and those around us are not quite ready to see them challenged. Maybe we should evaluate our behavior.

Venus (Pisces) Mars square (Sagittarius): unrealistic sentimental expectations

The same square astral configuration is perfected on January 26 between Venus from Pisces and Mars from Sagittarius. The eternal lovers of the Zodiac are in disharmony with each other during and around this day; some of us are looking for a deep connection with the loved one, and others are looking to explore. Some want novelty, and others full communion. No wonder couples born in this period will face some challenges at the beginning.

Venus conjunct Neptune (Pisces): identification with the other

Just a day after this, the same Venus from Pisces adheres to a conjunction with Neptune, which gives us extra creativity, but exposes us to the risk of falling prey to the promises and beautiful words that come from some people who do not deserve to be given too much trust. It is very important to make a careful selection of whom we trust on or around January 27. Otherwise, we could fall prey to disappointments.

Mars (Sagittarius) square Neptune (Pisces): ideals without applicability in reality

On January 28, Mars from Sagittarius forms a tense aspect of square with Neptune from Pisces, which indicates that good faith can make us chase chimeras and falling victims to illusions. We put our trust in people who have yet to show us that they deserve this privilege or that have even disappointed us in the past. We need to realize fast that we deserve more from life and that in some cases it is important to be careful.

As can be seen from the paragraphs above, we are bound to experience a first month of 2020 that sets things into motion from the very first aspects that are perfected between the stars during this month. The recommendation would be to gain that specific momentum that we could then cultivate and extract all kinds of benefits from. In this way, we will not be wasting too much time this year.
