The dreamy, sensitive, emotionally self-protective Pisces Sun will be in a more drifting mood than usual as it joins hands with Neptune, its ruler on the 8th. An enthusiasm-lift will get life into gear thereafter towards mid month but it won’t be exactly at hyper-speed. Venus moving through indulgent, earthy Taurus from the 5th will produce a few pleasureable moments as well as an emotional surprise or two.
A quiescent Mars in Capricorn starts to wind up a head of steam after the middle of the month, first in an upbeat, possibly over-confident conjunction with Jupiter and then a do-or-die-determined conjunction with Pluto. The latter can be marginally risky so caution is advised. At the least it tends to produce trapped situations or control freaks running amok.
Saturn makes a major shift into Aquarius on the 22nd staying till early July and then returning late year for a two year stint through this airy, intellectual, scientific sign. The emotional mood may be steadier but will also be cooler. Mars joins Saturn in Aquarius from the 30th for a few weeks which will be argumentative and uncompromising.

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.
Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till March 22 2020, and again and again July 2nd to December 17th – 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 onwards – it is serious thinking, helpful for science, steadier emotionally though cold.
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.
