Re-imagining What’s Possible: Astrology Forecast December 31st – January 7th

January 1st, 2024

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Just feel the energies shifting this week as first Jupiter then Mercury station and turn direct, while Mars crosses the Galactic Centre and enters purposeful Capricorn.

Jupiter turns forward at 5° Taurus having been retrograde since September 4th. The Great Benefic – our planetary gift bringer – is headlining in 2024, making a rare and magical conjunction with Awakener Uranus in April 2024 at 22° Taurus before entering Gemini on May 25th until 2025.

With only weeks until Transformer Pluto returns to futurist Aquarius on January 20, it’s a time to start re-imagining your life. Mars in practical Capricorn wants to see a blueprint and a timeline. Forget New Year’s Resolutions that imply that there is something lacking, something missing outside yourself that needs willpower or striving to achieve. Instead, open up your connection to your own higher guidance. Spend this week vision boarding, mind mapping or daydreaming, setting your intentions but wait until just after the Capricorn New Moon on January 11th to launch your ideas.

It’s time to stop living life at minimum. An old outgrown, incongruent, soulless way of living has to die completely before a new reality / narrative can form. Follow that flow. Release more. Once you use up all the possible learning from your current experiences, you will naturally, intuitively seek new ones.

Chandra Symbol Jupiter Direct TAURUS 6:

A pink diamond.

“The heart feels everything. It burns with a fever. Inside the burning something marvellous is forming. Grace permits the realization of the heart’s desires. You become a vessel to demonstrate, to share the beauty, the love, and the light. Yet all of this is implicit, is inherent, is inward. It is not seen by outer eyes. You are warming through slowly, contemplatively, those qualities of soul that are best entered upon free from reflection. The inner life is rich beyond measure with seeds which will be fertilised and are given forth in the fullness of time, having been through the fire to attain what is true and lasting.”

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: Dec 31-7 January, 2024

For the first 3 weeks of January, you are deeply engaged in a period of closure-a kind of healing hibernation to decide what needs to be permanently left in your personal museum of history.

Your authentic self is getting ready to emerge.
