The big story this year is the alignment of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a major event that has been building up for several years and will have significant consequences for decades to come. This month, however, the planet that is deserving of our attention is Uranus. One reason is that the Sun will be in Aquarius, a sign ruled by Uranus, until the 18th. More important is that Uranus will aspect 3 planets this month. As the energy of change, Uranus will have a lot to do with determining our experience.

The alignment of planets in Capricorn is the big story both for this month as well as the whole year. As noted in previous columns, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn brings accountability to a high priority. As such it can cause loss of power or control of those individuals who have been avoiding personal responsibility in order to achieve personal power. While Saturn and Pluto can be confrontational and competitive, Jupiter brings a higher mind focus to the situation.

Jupiter changes signs each year. This month Jupiter will leave Sagittarius and enter Capricorn. This is significant for several reasons. First, the energy of Jupiter is aligned with the nature of Sagittarius and is referred to as its “ruler”. When a planet is the sign it rules, its essential nature can be expressed in pure ways. Jupiter and Sagittarius are oriented toward the expansive, the joyful and the generous.

This month there is an abundance of harmonious aspects. Normally this column looks at the challenging aspects for the month, the ones that test us and help us to grow and change. There are a few of those this month, as well, but let’s use this as an opportunity to understand and work with the ones that are so pre-emminent this month.  The harmonious aspects are the sextile (60 degree angular separations) and the trine (120 degree separations). Usually sextiles and trines connect planets that are signs that are supportive of each other by element.

Four planets will transit into Scorpio this month, including the Full Moon on the 27th. Scorpio is the sign of transformation. This is the time of year when we should be engaged in some type of introspective review of our lives. Anything that reveals itself to be old, outdated, boring or stagnant needs to be released. Anything that still has meaning should be retained. This leaves room to create new things in your life. One specific aspect that can particularly present with challenges at this time is Uranus in Taurus opposing all four of the planets in Scorpio. Uranus represents radical change.
