There is a journey into the past ahead of you coming up. Perhaps you’re seeing an old friend who means a lot to you or connecting with the old days by revisiting somewhere. Either way, it’s a good time for you to remember that you are who you are because of where you came from and what that taught you. You’re at the peak of a positive period in 2017 so it’s important to remain a little humble and aware of your roots. Mercury reversing in your Home Zone will help you!

A BIT OF INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

Regular readers will know that we are going into 2017 with communications planet Mercury retrograde. When Mercury goes backwards, mayhem often ensures!

So if you have had a rather topsy-turvy holiday season so far, that could well be the reason why.

Mercury retrograde has an upside though; it’s the time to rethink, redo and revisit. In other words, if you find yourself taking a walk down memory lane as 2017 dawns, that’s Mercury.

Missed meetings and miscommunications often happen under this cycle, too, though. The way to handle Mercury retrograde upsets is to keep your sense of humour, even if it’s a bit against the odds! Mercury ends his retrograde cycle on January 8.

Note that the start of the year is also obviously the ideal time to set your intentions for the year ahead. What do you want to achieve in the coming 12 months?

Whether you have plans for adventure, or to get in shape, or anything else, it’s not too late to make some last minute New Year’s resolutions. In fact, the New Moon on January 28 makes that the perfect day to recommit to your plans for 2017, if you fall off the wagon early!

And after January 8, once Mercury changes direction and start to go forwards again, this is where the communications planet will be for you…

For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your THIRD HOUSE of communications, neighbours and siblings. If you’ve been having dramas or issues in any of those areas, now you know why! This weekend, as Mercury changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem. And after that? It’s smoother sailing. Getting your message through to people will be easier. You will receive fewer mixed messages. Upsets with neighbours and siblings can be resolved. Overall, you can expect that life will be easier to handle in every way.

 

WHERE THE FOCUS IS FOR YOU THIS MONTH…

As the Sun goes around the skies over the course of a year, it acts as a sort of spotlight on our charts. So every year around the same time, you get certain issues in focus. The way to work with the solar energies is to have a think about how confident you feel in the part of your chart that’s letting the Sun shine in! Here is where the Sun is focused for you this month:

Your personal life is now in the spotlight, so expect to spend the next four weeks doing some deep thinking about your past and how it got you to where you are now. Family issues – your parents, in particular, but all family – are now likely to take centre stage. If you need to reconnect with them, this is the time to do it, even if it means only getting on the phone and/or hooking up the web cam. Your actual home is also in focus now – look at how happy you are with where you live, how you life and who you live with. If there is something or someone from your past that still troubles you, now is the time to go and investigate it to see if you can release it and move on.

 

AND IN LOVE NEWS…

This month sees the planet of love and abundance, Venus, move into the very romantic sign of Pisces. This is good news for all the lovers out there. The vibe will be dreamier, people will be more like putty in your hands, love falls in love with lovers. Venus, of course, is the planet of love and abundance – so wherever she is in your chart is where you have more access to romance and riches. Here is what Venus in Pisces means for you.

Venus is now moving through your sixth house of daily work and health routines, where she’ll stay for around four weeks. This is perhaps the least sexy of all the Venus transits BUT before you start feeling ripped off, be glad! Someone Else can take a back seat for a while as you use the coming four weeks to work on yourself body, mind and spirit. Venus loves to be pampered so she if you can book yourself in for a massage or day spa, if you like that kind of thing. If you’d rather Do It Yourself, book yourself in a night alone where you can give yourself a candlelit bubble bath, manicure and pedicure (and NO this doesn’t apply to women only!) Venus here is also good news for you at work – you should find yourself feeling more amiable around the office, and you can pretty much expect your colleagues and clients to notice and approve, too. (And good things happen when those around us like us more than usual!) Romance-wise, this is the time to address the practical matters, rather than aiming for a love and hearts and flowers situation.

 

WHERE’S THE MOON?

The start of the New Year feels exciting and brimming with potential. And then here comes this very emotional Full Moon which is all about letting go. So how does that work? It might help to remember that in fact the so-called start of the New Year is also just a human construct/measurement we have dreamed up and live out lives in accordance with. Use the Full Moon this month the same way you would any Full Moon, as a chance to let go of the past and to forgive whoever you need to. Repeating this line alone, silently or out loud, could really help: “I forgive positively everyone in all directions of time”. Try it. Breathe in. Say it. And then e-x-h-a-l-e.

 

Making a 2017 Goodbye + Gratitude list

A wonderful practise to do sometime before the January 12 Full Moon would be to make a Goodbye + Gratitude list. To do this, start by making a list of everything you’re saying goodbye to from 2016 (you can do this before or after New Year, it doesn’t affect anything). Write down any heart break, upsets, disappointments, recriminations or regrets you have left over for 2016. Write it all down. Express it (get it?) Let it out and let it go … and then burn the list. And then replace all that you have released with a Gratitude list. All you have to do here is write down the names of at least three people, places or situations that you are truly grateful for. Bringing them to mind will fill you with gratitude, which is one of the ideal energetic states to be in. The more you can feel gratitude for the good in your life, the better your life will be. It’s just the way the Universe works. Try it and you will see.

 

A thought for the Full Moon…

The Goddess of the January Full Moon is Diana – the huntress! What are you determined to do or achieve in 2017? Ask Diana to help you to release fears and doubts on the night of the Full Moon in her sign.

 

The chakra of the Full Moon is Ajna, the Third Eye chakra.

The chant is “Ommm…” Trying chanting this around Full Moon time and see which insights come to you!

 

What the Full Moon means for you…

If you’ve been hiding yourself away and generally keeping a low profile, watch out! The skies are suggesting rather loudly that it’s time for you to step out of the shadows and back into the limelight. As tempting as it might be to slouch around at home, this Full Moon in your 10th House of Career is telling you it’s time to invest some emotional energy into your professional life. Even if your work has been the source of annoyance lately, don’t give up. For some, a work situation or project comes to an end now. Don’t panic. Remember, the Universe abhors a vacuum and something new will come in, in its place, soon enough. How committed are you to your goals?

Capricorn – the New Moon in your sign and Mercury retrograding in Capricorn makes December/January pivotal – turn and face the direction you want to go in. Use it or lose it.
