Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
When thinking about your partner, you will be in a serious mode. New Year’s is not likely to be lighthearted, for Saturn will be conjunct the Sun. That’s a meeting of fire (Sun) and ice (Saturn), and this puts everyone, of every sign, in a somber mood. You may be particularly worried about a lack of money, for the Sun is the natural ruler of your eighth house of credit, loans, and income in terms of commissions, university student financial aid, scholarships, bonuses, mortgages, and other large sums covered by the eighth house. As the month begins, you may feel temporarily overwhelmed by how much it costs to keep a household going—money seems to be in short supply, but it won’t be this way forever.
A new relationship development is coming up at the solar eclipse of January 5. Eclipses bring truth to the surface—things you didn’t know before will be presented now. You may become engaged or married, or you may want to make a business partnership official. You would probably know which way things will go as you read this. You might be forming a serious alliance with a business partner, manager, agent, publicist, headhunter or job broker, writing or laboratory partner, or other such person with whom you will work with closely in a one-on-one collaborative way. Of course, a new development could spell the end of a relationship, if you want to leave. The outcome seems to be up to you. If your birthday falls on July 7, plus or minus four days, you will notice the eclipse in an especially strong way.

Saturn will be conjunct the new moon solar eclipse, so you may be accepting a new responsibility regarding a partner—or conversely, you may separate from one. (An eclipse of the Sun sometimes means a person is eclipsed out of your life, either by choice or by circumstance.) Still, a new moon will bring you through a new threshold and have you begin a new life chapter regarding a relationship. This renewal comes thanks to the solar eclipse, January 5. You will find a solar eclipse is almost always positive, for it marks the start of a new condition or the opening of opportunity. (A full moon eclipse marks an ending and can sometimes be more emotional.)
Pluto will conjunct the Sun in your opposite sign of Capricorn, so someone in your circle you would call a partner may be coming on too strong to you, saying, in effect, it’s my way or the highway. It’s possible when you think about your relationships in love or business, you might be drawn to powerful, successful partners now, but one in particular might be a handful. This person seems self-absorbed and a bit entitled, so I’m not sure you are being treated well. If so, you may have to decide whether you need to stand up for yourself. Saturn, Pluto, the Sun, and new moon—all in Capricorn—are telling you to be realistic, practical, objective, and unemotional.
