The Aquarius Sun just off the wobble from the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) on the last day of January, heads for a Solar Eclipse (New Moon) on the 15th. Focus will be crucial since this one depends on challenging everyone to get their head and heart in alignment and devote themselves to a pet project or worthy cause. Getting priorities straight is crucial; and so is not being too ego-centred on selfish concerns. Over-confidence is a risk around the 10th though an inspired hunch a few days later will bring enlightenment.
Venus hops out of detached, flirtatious Aquarius on the 10th, gliding into seductive, sensitive Pisces for the rest of the month. Mars continues in adventurous, outspoken and crusading Sagittarius throughout, with only one blip from a marginally disappointing or low-energy square from Neptune after mid month.
In the final ten days the Sun and Mercury join Venus in Pisces, for a lyrical and dreamy few days. Effort will be needed to turn visions into a reality.

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.
