Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
If you are trying to get money back from a contractor who did not use best business practices, this month would not be the time to move ahead with your law suit. Mercury rules your eighth house of other people’s money, the house that rules the money that would get if the courts settled the case in your favor. February would be a worse time to bring a suit, because Mercury will be retrograde from January 30 to February 20. Early March would be the right time, so wait until the first week of March to bring your dishonest contractor to justice.
Now let’s look at the new moon January 12 in Capricorn, 23 degrees. This new moon falls in your twelfth house, a good time to start work on a secret, competitive project. Any assignment that comes up will require that you speak to no one about it. Also at this new moon, Neptune in your second house of earned income will be quite helpful to your progress. If you are working on a home design project, Neptune, as the planet of artistic expression, will offer you design ideas that will create a soothing and quite beautiful environment. Neptune in Pisces will support the Sun, new moon, and Pluto. Wow! That suggests your choices will please you.
You appear to still be in the planning stage for home or family, and as you get closer to mid-to-end of the month, it would not be a good time to make a final decision. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius will be coming close, starting January 30 and ending February 20. You will start to feel the slowdown of Mercury retrograde as soon as January 17, and after it goes direct, wait until early March to swing into action.
