Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You have a marvelously social month ahead. The full moon starts off the year with the full moon in Cancer 12 degrees, on January 1. This suggests you will have fun at a party, with the person you are dating, or at home with fun pastimes with children. If you are single, you might meet someone new in the first days of January, as a full moon in this romantic area of your chart always has an influence of four days beyond January 1. Also, if you have been working on a creative project, you may now put your final touches on it during the first week of January.
This full moon is as delicious as a cup of hot chocolate. It brings a twinkling golden triangle to the sky, with the Sun and new moon in Cancer sending golden beams to Neptune, your ruler, and planet of creativity, compassion, and unconditional love. Neptune might inspire you to do something kind for a person near who is in need. You may also be putting final touches on a creative project you started some time ago. The third leg of the golden triangle will point to Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio, suggesting something special is bubbling up regarding an impending trip, most likely to a foreign country or island that requires your passport for entry. If your birthday falls on March 2, plus or minus five days, you will benefit the most from this full moon. It is a highly romantic one, and you should find the days that follow the full moon thoroughly enjoyable. The same is true if you have Pisces rising or the moon in Pisces at 12 degrees, or have a natal planet in Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn at 12 degrees, plus or minus five degrees.
After the full moon, you have an extraordinary conjunction of Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, and Mars, the planet of energy and action. Mars and Jupiter are in Scorpio, the best place for them for be for you, for Scorpio is a water sign like yours, and will encourage all your actions, especially those related to ninth house activities: dealings with international executives, travel to a foreign, settling an immigration matter (passport, green card, or visa), and all matters related to college, for undergraduate or graduate degrees.
On January 8, the Sun in Capricorn in your house of hopes and wishes, and Jupiter in Scorpio in your house of long-distance travel and matters abroad will combine forces. It appears a wish you’ve long held may be within reach. If you have a law case, you may now hear a verdict that pleases you.
On January 9, Venus will receive beams from Mars and Jupiter, and that will rev up your social life. Again, foreign people and places are playing an important role, and is where some of the golden nuggets lie. Additionally, if you work in publishing or broadcasting, you may be nearing a big breakthrough with a new, lucrative opportunity that may come up now or sometime this month. Those hoping to go college would have a very favorable day to send in your application or to have an interview.
Your big moment will be the new moon January 16, in Capricorn, at 27 degrees. This new moon is unusual in so many ways, for six happy planets will crowd into your house of hopes and wishes, and also covers friendships, new people, and events. You will have powerful integration with your community, followers, fans, friends, and new people you have yet to meet. If you are on social media, consider entering a new social media venue or working on the page you have now – it looks like you will attract many more followers.
In this area of your chart, you will have Venus, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, the new moon, and Sun. That’s remarkable, for it is the highest number of planets that will be aligned in one sign, one constellation. Many years ago, on May 3, 2000, we had an alignment of seven planets in Taurus, a number that scientists tell us will never happen again in our lifetime. We will have six, though, and that will happen January 16, 2018, and that day is almost here. New moons always open the door for fresh opportunity, and for you, this will come through people who know you personally (friends) or who are enthusiastic about your work (fans).
