A less fraught month astrologically-speaking with the airy Aquarius Sun until the 19th unaspected by any other planet. Communicative Mercury in Pisces until early March will be creative and kindly-intentioned though not always practical or easy to pin down. It goes retrograde from the 17th for three weeks which will bring the usual irksome delays.
Venus will zip into fiery, upfront Aries on the 7th to stay until early March adding a few firecrackers romantically and socially.
Most of the action happens after mid month with Mars moving into financially ambitious Capricorn staying until the end of March, so there’ll be a definite push for money and status. New plans will get under way courtesy of an active Uranus around the 21st and 22nd, with no interference being allowed from outside. The Pisces Sun for the final ten days will be more active than usual with Mars adding its impetus as well. Nothing too abrasive or disruptive, but lively.

Jupiter in Capricorn from December 2nd 2019 to December 2020. Capricorn is money-minded, ambitious, traditional, practical. In astrology it rules business and governmental systems. Can be creative. Then into Aquarius.
Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till March 22nd 2020, and again and again July 2nd to December 17th 2020 – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence. Puts a toe into Aquarius in late March for three months, and moves in for two years plus from December 2020 onwards – it is serious thinking, helpful for science.
Uranus: From March 2019 for seven years in Taurus – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature.
Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.
Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
