Your January 2020 Horoscope

By Suzanne Gerber  

ARIES (March 21–April 19): You won’t be able to hide out much this month with the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn lighting up the sky in your most visible chart sector. People, and possibly the spotlight, will find you, so you might as well get used to it. If you absolutely need some quiet downtime, schedule it for the 10th, when a full moon/lunar eclipse emphasizes all things domestic, whether a romantic evening in or a pull-out-the-stops dinner party.

TAURUS (April 20–May 20): If you hate the thought of getting on a plane now, you can still scratch any wanderlust itches with local explorations. All month, a raft of action planets is firing up your travel and adventure zone, yanking you out of your cozy bubble and onto the open road. If you’ve been waiting for the new year to launch a new business idea, the full moon/lunar eclipse on the 10th may finally be your green light!

GEMINI (May 21–June 20): You could feel pulled in two directions—for a change!—as the planets power up your travel and adventure zone and your intimate, permabonding sector. There is a way to have it all, as long as you’re flexible. You might feel a sea change on the 6th, when your ruler (Mercury) dangles a sweet getaway. And on the 10th, a full moon/lunar eclipse activates your money house, turning your attention to your finances for the next several weeks.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Romantic reboot! Your two most relationship-oriented houses are on fire all month as six planets two-step through them. Single Cancers will be motivated enough to try some new tactics for meeting a quality partner. Couples can reignite the embers with a weekend getaway or just talking through your concerns (and fantasies!). On the 10th, a full moon/lunar eclipse in your sign hits reset on any stalled initiative—provided the desire is there!

LEO (July 23–August 22): Love, romance and relationship are high-priority items all month thanks to your ruler (the Sun) and passionate Venus activating those chart sectors. Have you been getting closer to someone? Make your feelings known or take a bold risk (‘cause, really, Leo: What have you got to lose?). Stop taking your intuition for granted! After a powerful full moon/lunar eclipse on the 10th in your mystical center, those divine downloads could come through fast and furious!

VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Hibernation season ends on the 3rd, thanks to the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn crammed into your flirty and fun-loving house for seven weeks. An activating full moon/lunar eclipse in your social sector on the 10th put you in high demand. But because there are only so many hours in the week, prioritize quality over quantity. And once Venus bolts in your partnership corner on the 13th, you’ll want to build in leave plenty of time for that!

LIBRA (September 23–October 22): If you’re still recovering from the holidays, ease into the new year without putting too much pressure on yourself to start new initiatives or be more social than you have the energy for. The Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn are hunkered down in your home zone, and on the 13th, Venus invites you on a decluttering mission. However, a full moon/lunar eclipse in your public zone on the 10th may force you out onto the dance floor.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 21): You’ll be happiest on a short leash this month—especially if the holidays fried your circuits. There’s nothing wrong with laying low and recharging your batteries. Invite people over to your place rather than always going out. Of course, all that could change on a dime when a full moon/lunar eclipse lands in your travel and adventure zone on the 10th. Who’s up for a music festival—or any road trip?

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21): If your finances took a hit over the holidays, you can get things back on track now—and maybe a faster track at that! With the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn in your money sector, the emphasis is on long-range planning and big-ticket goals. On the 10th, a full moon/lunar eclipse in your house of shared resources bodes well for you to make some very strategic mergers in the coming months. 

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19): Thanks to a platoon of powerful planets (the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn) activating your sign, you’re in the driver’s seat—with a full tank of rocket fuel! Before you blast ahead, do what Capricorns do best and decide where you want to go and map out your route. On the 10th, a full moon/lunar eclipse in your partnership house electrifies that area of life, boding well for single and coupled Goats.

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18): If you lost momentum over the holidays, you can get things back on track now. But you may need to take a pass on a few social or cultural activities. Driven Mars in your house of career goals and Venus in your sign (until the 13th) helps you focus on you. A great day to tackle a decluttering mission is the 10th, when a full moon/lunar eclipse kicks off two weeks of inspired reorganization.

PISCES (February 18–March 20): Just because you’ve taken down the holidays decorations and reconfigured the furniture doesn’t mean your social life is going to calm down, Pisces. With the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn heating up your house of friendship and cultural activities, you may be busier than ever! Romance (re)ignite on the 10th as a full moon/lunar eclipse electrifies your flirty, flamboyant zone. The next two weeks are prime time for meeting kindred spirits or taking significant next steps.
