January is probably one of the best months of the year to plan ahead, free of retrogrades. Uranus moves forward in Aries on the 22nd, leaving room to begin personal unique expression on a larger scale. There are two Full Moons in January, the first on the 1st is a Full Moon in Cancer, the next on the 31st is a Lunar Eclipse in Leo. Two Full Moons in one month are called a Super Moon. A period in time when everything/everyone seems more intense and sensitive than usual. This particular aspect can be considered defining in their transits, so be prepared.
Date: January 1st
The month starts with a Full Moon in Cancer, which aspects, home, family foundation of life, depending on the house in which it occurs. The “message” brought by this transit, is that something has to end or change, in order for a new positive cycle to begin. Also highlighting the fact that the foundation of life the Full Moon accents, isn’t fulfilling, nurturing or steady. The signs will have already being apparent leading up to the Full Moon, if attention was being paid to the course of events prior to this aspect. Most of all this Full Moon is preparation for the “big one”, the Lunar Eclipse in Leo at the end of the month. All in all, this is a sign from the Universe to “clean house”.
Cycle: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
Date: January 31st
As the month comes to a close it would have been evident in the weeks prior to this transit that the “slate needs to be wiped clean” in a particular area of life. People and situations that are unstable, bring unhappiness, a misuse/abuse of power have to go. How this transpires will depend on the house the eclipse occurs, but nonetheless will be powerful in its affect, which will be felt in the subsequent days and weeks.
The main and most important thing to remember is not to try to hang onto things and people that have been outgrown, because this will cause problems and stagnation. So, let go, move on, and allow the universe to fill the void, with bigger better people and situations and take a “leap of faith” into the unknown.

Capricorn is a sign that represents time and responsibility, and its representatives are traditional and often very serious by nature. These individuals possess an inner state of independence that enables significant progress both in their personal and professional lives. They are masters of self-control and have the ability to lead the way, make solid and realistic plans, and manage many people who work for them at any time. They will learn from their mistakes and get to the top based solely on their experience and expertise.
Belonging to the element of Earth , like Taurus and Virgo, this is the last sign in the trio of practicality and grounding. Not only do they focus on the material world, but they have the ability to use the most out of it. Unfortunately, this element also makes them stiff and sometimes too stubborn to move from one perspective or point in a relationship. They have a hard time accepting differences of other people that are too far from their character, and out of fear might try to impose their traditional values aggressively
Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn, and this planet represents restrictions of all kinds. Its influence makes these people practical and responsible, but also cold, distant and unforgiving, prone to the feeling of guilt and turned to the past. They need to learn to forgive in order to make their own life lighter and more positive.
Capricorn – the Goat of Fear A goat with the tail of a fish is created to face fear and create panic. It is the sign of decisions made to be protected from monsters in our minds, lives, and immediate physical surrounding. Always ready to transform into something that scares those scary things off, Capricorn speaks of each natural chain reaction of fear, where one scary thing leads to many others, rising up as defensive mechanisms that only make things worse. Immersed in their secrecy, they face the world just as they are – brave enough to never run away, but constantly afraid of their inner monsters.
