Eyes Wide Open: Astrology Forecast January 5 – 12, 2020

January 6th, 2020

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

We’re in the eye of a perfect storm, creating one of those rare crux points in history – hard to discern when you’re right in the thick of it but blindingly obvious further down the time-line. Every single aspect this week counts and, with no space here, I will post throughout the week on Facebook:

Wednesday 8th: Jupiter conjuncts the karmic South Node of Fate

Friday 10th: A potent Lunar Eclipse at 20 Cancer

Saturday 11th: Volatile Uranus stations to turn direct at 2 Taurus

Sunday 12th : Saturn and Pluto conjunct at 22 Capricorn for the first time in 507 years.

A heads up! This deep space Saturn/Pluto /Eclipse Wave is not head stuff – it’s somatic, physical and raw. Before anything else, your body needs your full support during this utterly transformational passage. Transformation isn’t sweetness and light but an unravelling of the untruths, the debris, a complete uprooting before becoming. Clear your ecology – your personal space, your physical, emotional and energetic environment. Prioritise sleep + hydration. Choose to be grounded and rooted.

The January 12 2020 Saturn Pluto Conjunction:

Crisis for Climate Change, Big Business, Government and Royalty around the Globe

On January 12, 2020, Saturn meets Pluto at 22°45 Capricorn for a single, and dramatic, pass. Take a look at the Saturn/Pluto/ Eris Alignment in the chart below. It’s not just Saturn conjunct Pluto. Stuffed into 1.25 degrees of the zodiac are Mercury, the Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto and Chariklo — with Jupiter close enough to be considered part of the conjunction. The karmic South Node is there, as is Pholus – and all of it is square disruptor awakener Eris in Aries.  Astrology is producing a lot of gravity in one direction with this event.

This is what is meant by walking the razor’s edge path between two great lines of force, as hardcore realist Saturn the Master Teacher encounters implacable change agent Pluto in Capricorn for the first time since 1518 when Martin Luther began the Protestant Revolution. It’s a rite of passage, squeezing us through the eye of a needle into a whole new era. One we have never experienced before, with Ceres speaking directly to the toxic relationship between humanity and Gaia herself. This is the crisis point of no return.

 Expect this cycle to have an exceptionally powerful effect in the next 2 years, stimulating significant geopolitical dynamics that will affect the distribution of power economically on a global scale. Saturn conjunct Pluto is very much the nuclear missile of combinations. Hard aspects between Saturn and Pluto often bring natural disasters, particularly seismic and volcanic activity.

This is not a one-off dramatic event, it’s just the start of a huge chain of dominos toppling.

If you have any planets, points or angles around 23 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you are going to be in the eye of this conjunction. If you have anything around 23 degrees in Pisces, Taurus, Virgo or Scorpio, the impact will be less jarring but still strong.

In your own life:

  • allow time for the dying away to happen organically while focusing on preparation, elimination, introspection and realism. If you leap too quickly into the New at this end of this fading cycle, you risk repeating old 3D patterns
  • over the days, weeks and months to follow, anticipate a psychological, physical and emotional power surge – nuclear fission – that will allow you to move mountains creating tremendous personal momentum
  • only practical blueprints for progress will have sticking power and longlasting results
  • you need the Will and desire to make radical permanent changes instead of tinkering at the edges. An old life is going dark.

The Chandra Symbol for CAPRICORN 22:

A Bare Altar covered with Black Velvet. 

“A greater power is at work behind the scenes here. That power is immense, world-shattering. It requires us to be dissected of that aspect of ourselves which stands between us and what we are called here to sense. And with relentless fury, it will not let us be. For we are meant to be forged and fashioned into something beyond the grasp of our historical self. We are being asked to supersede the old patterns and syndromes with something which is already well on its way and just needs our blessing to fulfil its cycle of deep change here. This is a decisive point, personally and collectively. It can go either way. There are good reasons to hold back, to hold out, to ask for better terms. Yet timing is so very crucial. Can we afford to be so sure, when we know it’s well past such considerations? At the last moment, when everything depends upon it, the idols topple; the power-heavy way of life is suddenly gone”.

Aries Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

It’s the end of multiple cycles for you as an Aries. You are hosting pattern disruptors Chiron and Eris in your sign -at odds with change agents Saturn and Pluto. Cut yourself cleanly away from outgrown roles, relationships, dreams, habits-there is no going back. It won’t suddenly happen on January 12th but will be catalysed by the one off historic super conjunction. This clearing is vital preparation for July when your personal planet Mars returns to Aries and your momentum and pioneering spirit will be in overdrive through to 2021. Meanwhile, on January 10th, an emotional lunar eclipse suggests transformation in your tribe. Someone may leave, a baby arrive or you cut ties with an old friendship group. The bottom line for you is that it’s all about personal freedom.

The cage door is wide open.

Taurus Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

Lucky you! This super conjunction of change agents Saturn and Pluto is in ultra-compatible Earth sign Capricorn, blasting your energy field with a power surge of practical life force. If you were born between May 7-17th, you’ll feel this especially strongly. Anything you’ve been involved with connected with higher education, writing, publishing, blogging or researching will bring due rewards for previous efforts. Your most strongly held beliefs are due for an overhaul and with Uranus, planet of surprises, in Taurus turning forward on January 11th between the lunar eclipse and the Saturn/Pluto one off pass, your world could be turned upside down. Venus at the very pinnacle of your chart increases your status or public image in some way. Let go of outdated affiliations that are keeping you small and explore some intriguing new territory

Finding your voice.

Gemini Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

This week’s astrology is not a dramatic one off but a catalyst for radical changes in the next two years. For you as a solar Gemini, the huge gathering of planets in practical Earth sign Capricorn creates nuclear fission in your 8th House. This is the psychological interface between your deepest desires and your material life. In other words, money and security issues are now up for an audit. As Uranus-planet of out of the blue surprises-turns forward between a lunar eclipse on Friday and the reality check Saturn/Pluto conjunction on Sunday, you may be hit by an unexpected expense, need to call in a debt or have your belief in the strength of a financial partnership shaken. However it plays out, take a closer look at your beliefs around security and ask yourself where they came from. This astrology is a big wake up call to become financially self-supporting.

Stripping back to essentials.

Cancer Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

This unique, rare and potent super conjunction of planets in your opposite sign of Capricorn is all about power. The clue is in the word “opposite” as it may feel as if all sorts of forces, people or obstacles are ranged against you, reducing your options. With a lunar eclipse in Cancer between Friday’s U turn by unpredictable Uranus and the reality check Saturn/Pluto conjunction on Sunday, you may feel overcome by pent up emotions, by the constant struggles, by the strength of the opposition. If so, let it out, release it and clear your energy field. There are some chinks of light-for some Cancerians, the struggles are actually over but you can’t quite believe it…yet. For others, supporters and allies arrive like the cavalry-you just have to trust your instincts as to who has your best interests at heart. Change tactics and instead of retreating into your shell to escape the pressure, use martial art type strategies to work around obstacles.

You are the sky, everything else is just weather.

Leo Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

The year ahead is going to be a busy one, Leo, so prepare now by building your resilience, looking after your wellbeing and clearing the decks of anything irrelevant or unnecessary. This week on Sunday January 12th, there is a once in a life time pile up of planets in your zone of work, responsibilities and health, including reality check planets Saturn and Pluto. The theme of radical change is amplified by a potent wild card eclipse two days earlier. It’s time to strip right back to essentials. To streamline your work and remove dead wood such as old accounting systems or partnerships. To create a new website that reflects who you are now and what you want to be recognised for. To integrate work into your life and make your health one of your top priorities all year. Keep telling yourself that this astrology is not a dramatic one- off event but the start of a marathon.

Be realistic but raise the bar on your ambitions.

Virgo Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

This week’s stunning astrology is a once in a lifetime event which will catalyse at least two years of progressive change for you. That is, as long as you understand that to welcome in the new, you also have to be prepared to walk away from the old. Sounds great in theory but it’s not so simple in practice. On Friday January 10th, an emotional eclipse sees you walking away from a group or affiliation that you’ve outgrown. Say your goodbyes and move on…..it’s time. Happily, Sunday’s super conjunction of planets in practical Capricorn are in a sign very compatible with yours, lighting up your 5th house. Expect some intriguing news accompanied by a power surge connected to children, self-expression and creativity. Whether you’re a writer, designer, embroiderer, artist, dancer, photographer, knitter, your work and inventiveness is about to get a huge boost. Buy new materials, gather your tools and jump in. No more waiting to “ready” or to be invited or to be in the “right“ mood.

Just do it…

Libra Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

Two of the 4 angles of your chart-your foundations and support structures- are activated this week by this once in a lifetime astrology. Change is not an option, if it ever was. First, on Friday January 10th, an emotional lunar eclipse across your career sector, could mean a change of role, title, job or even direction. Events may re-arrange themselves around you to make you finally realise that you need to move on to fresh pastures. Then on Sunday January 12th, a huge gathering of planets at the base of your chart in practical Capricorn brings one long cycle connected to your roots and sense of belonging to an end. This could play out as someone leaving home or the tribe expanding or, more likely, in you reaching the end of one road and cutting your losses. You may decide to shed a responsibility or to move house. Watch for events around the wild card eclipse to create circumstances that nudge you to move on. Over the coming year, focus on integrating work and home, on putting family bonds first, even if it means completely re-thinking your career.

Finding meaning in belonging.

Scorpio Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

2020 is set to be a year when you turn your life upside down by radically changing some of your most longstanding beliefs and certainties. And radical is exactly the word to describe this once in a lifetime astrology. Starting on Friday January 10th with a wild card lunar eclipse, events outside your control re-arrange themselves around you, nudging you on to a whole new course of study or to embark on an exciting adventure. On Saturday 11th, unpredictable Uranus turns forward in your relationship zone, ending outgrown partnerships and freeing you up for something much better in the coming months. Then on Sunday 12th, a huge conjunction of planets in your 3rd House, puts your focus on all connections and communications. You may receive some news or information which totally changes your perspective. But the real gift is a power surge, giving you the drive and momentum to get your voice heard. Anything to do with writing, blogging, publishing or disseminating information is very well starred.

Upgrade all your means of communication-you’re going to need them.

Sagittarius Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

Luckily for you, Sagittarius, you have planet of momentum Mars at your back as you head into another year of expansion and possibility. Whatever unfolds, it’s definitely not the time to play the shrinking violet-get ready to respond to changing circumstances like an Akido master. Your focus is independence, especially financial independence. Both Friday’s wild card eclipse and Sunday’s once in a lifetime conjunction in Capricorn put your money and your material security at the top of your priority list for the whole of 2020.With reality planets Saturn and Pluto together with expansionist Jupiter, it may feel like boom or bust. The key is to make necessary changes now, in January, so that you’re prepared to ride the waves. That could mean reducing debt, calling in loans, restructuring your banking, starting to save. It definitely means asking for what you’re worth and refusing to accept anything less.

Building strong foundations.

Capricorn Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

The first thing to recognise, Capricorn, is that this is your time, your year, your decade-no exaggeration. As Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, Ceres and Mercury gather in your own sign, just feel the power, the energy surge, the agency. This has been slowly building for over 11 years since 2008 when change agent Pluto set about dismantling your old life. Now, it’s at its peak. At its root, it’s all about a change in identity and outlook. You are playing on a much bigger stage than ever before and it’s time to stand up and be counted. Your principles, values and beliefs matter and can make a difference right where you are. Find the causes that feed your soul – personally, socially, spiritually, collectively and commit 100% . If you’re feeling tremendous pressure to do something-anything!-this January, just take a step back. With Friday’s wild card eclipse in your relationship zone and unpredictable Uranus turning forwards, there are too many unknown unknowns. So keep things simple, strip away inessentials-you can throw a bomb under anything outgrown once you know where and how you want to invest this newfound power, confidence and self-belief, but not before.

 May the force be with you.

Aquarius Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

Something big and very transformative is happening behind the scenes, Aquarius. On January 12th, in a single dramatic pass, your ruler Saturn-master teacher and symbol of your potential-is in a super conjunction with change agent Pluto, expansionist Jupiter, Ceres and Mercury in the deepest part of your chart. It may be a one -off event but so powerful that the repercussions will continue for the next two years. It activates your 12th House of the unconscious, of your defence mechanisms, of the past, of your ancestors. It is shining a light in the dark unexplored corners of your inner self, of your dream life and spirituality. Notice if you are drawn to occult studies, to research your heritage, to like- minded groups of people, to take action on behalf of others. From December 2020, when Saturn and Jupiter ring the great Aquarian bell for the first time in centuries, your time will arrive. So frame this year as one of retreat and inner preparation for mastery.

Something inside you is unfreezing. It’s as if a part of you is coming back to life. This is a version of yourself that is both familiar and utterly unknown to you.

Pisces Week Ahead Forecast: Jan 5-12, 2019

Luckily for you, as a solar Piscean, this week’s once in a lifetime astrology is forming a very supportive angle to your Sun. Sunday’s nuclear combination of Saturn and Pluto combining with several other planets has the power to changes both worlds and lives. It may be an astronomical one-off event but its repercussions will domino for at least two years. Throw in to the mix Friday’s emotional lunar eclipse and unpredictable Uranus turning forward and change is definitely not an option. This activates your 11th House of alliances, friendships, groups and collaborators. It’s all about community -building one and serving one, based on your most meaningful values. You might be taking your work team to where they can make a real difference or setting up a charity or food bank. Whatever your path,2020 is not about trying to be top dog in your career but about belonging.

A change of path.
