The stalwart earthy Taurus Sun will push on in steady steps until the 20th putting practicality before wild schemes, though with temptations to indulge looming large. Unimpeded by major aspects until it reaches a powerfully expansive and lucky set of trines to Pluto and Jupiter after mid-month, it may induce a little calm into a chaotic year.
Mars will stay in stubbornly contrary Aquarius until the 13th producing a few arguments. Then it moves into Pisces till late June bringing a mellower kind of assertiveness. Mars here can give talent in dancing so swaying to music will be a better way of exercising and soaking up surplus energy.
In the final days the Sun joins Mercury and Venus in Gemini for a lighter hearted mood with much chat, swapping ideas and staying in touch. The energy will be scattered with much multi-tasking and not always a clear sense of direction.

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.

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.
