Micro-Forecast: January 15 to 21, 2018

There is a New Moon at 26ยบ Capricorn on Tuesday, January 16. New Moons start the monthly activity cycle and this one is no exception. However, this New Moon is conjunct the United States’ Pluto. The U.S. Pluto is in the U.S. second house, which has to do with spending and values. It also suggests that things regarding finances, taxes, and monies owed for taxes are at the top of the news, with a few revelations, lots of surprises and discoveries. Venus is also entering the sign of Aquarius on January 17, which allows for better conceptual ideas, as it is an air sign that is quite progressive in its expression. This helps lighten some of the news of the week as Pluto returns to its shadow position (the place at which it went retrograde early in 2017). These ‘shadow’ dates may reveal, confirm, decide and inspire action regarding issues that were peaking in late April 2017. Pluto has to do with issues surrounding nuclear access. Pluto is near the North Korean leader’s Sun (yes, he is a Capricorn born in 1984). With Jupiter having aligned with Mars just a couple of weeks ago, perhaps the news will be better than expected or some solutions may begin showing their face. I know I must be sounding Pollyanna about this but one can always hope.

The New Moon in Capricorn takes place in the natural zodiac’s career house–new jobs or bosses anyone??
