The Monthly Forecast For January 2020

2020 is a very powerful year, from an astrological perspective. January starts us off with a bang, with some planetary alignments that are important. Some highlights include the Saturn/Pluto conjunction on 1/12, that only occurs every 34 years. Then we have the Cancer Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse on Friday, January 10th, pretty much right on top of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction. Wow. I’m going to take them all individually.

From 1/1 to 1/5, we have some lovely, expansive aspects, setting the tone of optimism and faith. The fifth is beautiful, with the Moon in Taurus forming five positive aspects, including trines to Jupiter, Mercury, and the Sun. Jupiter is the planet of blessings and abundance. Set your intention to receive, and to be in flow.

The second week of the month, from 1/6-1/12, is super intense. It’s a very shamanic and alchemical time, if we approach it with the right attitude. If we don’t, it’s setting up to be an FGO, a Fucking Growth Opportunity. Oh, good. The Full Moon and Eclipse on the 10th is a game changer. The Sun in Capricorn opposes the Moon in Cancer, which also then opposes Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto. ( Remember, 1/12 is that conjunction of those two, which only happens once every 34 years). This Eclipse may very well be the most powerful day of the month. How we handle change, and letting go, is what matters. A good affirmation might be:” I fully and freely release all situations and relationships that no longer grow my soul. I walk in peace and harmony. I am only open to love in all of its forms. All else now fades out of my life. “  Saturn has to do with wisdom, discipline, patience, and fear. Pluto has to do with death and rebirth, one door closing, and another door opening. It reminds me of that Zen saying, Let go, or be dragged. Since the Eclipse has the Moon in nurturing Cancer, we are being invited to ask ourselves, what nurtures us? Are we respecting ourselves? What is our sacred commitment to ourselves? Are we honoring that? Are we cultivating wisdom? Discipline? Since Pluto rules the Void and the Kidneys in Chinese medicine, are we trusting our magic, our intuition? Another good affirmation would be: “ I step into the arms of the sustaining Infinite”.

January 12th, with that Saturn/Pluto conjunction, also has Uranus, the planet of radical change, coming out of hibernation and going direct. This is a time of major transformation, for ourselves, and for humanity. Pluto rules the subconscious mind, what’s hidden in the darkness. It also rules the underworld, corruption, bullying and manipulation. Watch for these things to become highlighted in the world, and in your personal life. This can be a time of deep healing. Anyone with planets in Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, and Libra, will be feeling this even more deeply.

1/13-1/19 Venus, the planet of love and compassion, moves out of intellectual Aquarius into heart centered Pisces, it makes it somewhat easier to be gentle with yourself and others. 1/14 and 1/15 are very good. 1/17 is somewhat rough, early in the morning, where the Moon at the tail end of Libra hits Pluto and Saturn, before it leaves Libra and moves into Scorpio in the afternoon. Try not to engage until that happens. 1/19 is very good.

The New Moon on 1/24 in Aquarius is a wonderful day for new beginnings. The 27th is also very good.

I spent quite a bit of time on the most important aspects of this month, because they are game changers. This year has been talked about for a long time. What it brings us depends on us, and our willingness to change, and our willingness to be who we came here to be. It’s a black and white time… a 34 year cycle. I can remember where I was, 34 years ago. I was coming to the powerful and painful awareness about my life. I was 34. I left my marriage three years later, but the clarity that came that if I stayed, I would die, came to me then. Gathering the courage to leap into the Void, to walk away from the known, into the unknown, took some time. But I knew. During this time, what do you know? What are you being shown? Trust yourself. Trust Spirit. It’s a time to free oneself from negative self talk, doubts, and fears. Take the leap into the unknown. Step into the arms of the sustaining Infinite. I can promise you that you’ll be so glad that you did. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine

December is a beautiful month. Sagittarius is the sign that covers most of December. It is a Fire sign, ruled by Jupiter, the key words are “ I Perceive “. December starts out with some lovely aspects, 12/3 has the Moon in Pisces, forming a sextile to Jupiter, Uranus, and Venus, plus making a trine to Mars. Wow. Opportunity abounds. This is a great day to be assertive and go after what you want. Yes, yes, yes. 12/4 is also good.

The Full Moon on 12/12 inclines us to spread ourselves too thin, overextending. Don’t. The Moon moves into Cancer on 12/13, a very high vibe day. Raise your consciousness, vision, meditate, dream. On 12/14, banish the fear cooties again. Unexpected blessings arrive on 12/17. Yes.

Monthly Forecast For November ( Sorry it’s late)

I’m sorry I’m so late getting this up, work has been insane. So, better late than never. The Sun is moving through Scorpio for most of the month, my favorite sign of the zodiac. The key words for Scorpio are “ I Create”. It is a Fixed Water sign, with the symbols of the Eagle, the Scorpion, and the Phoenix.

The Full Moon on 11/12 is a powerful one, with the Sun in Scorpio opposition to the Moon in Taurus. That Taurus Moon makes some beautiful aspects, trining Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, which is empowering, grounding, and fearless, all at the same time. It also makes a lovely aspect to Neptune, adding the mystical component. 11/13 is very good, with the Sun sextile to Pluto, the alchemist, and Mercury trine to Neptune, the visionary. The truth shall be revealed.

I expect the 14th to be a little rocky for anyone trying to cover anything up. Both Venus and the Moon square Neptune. Spin doctoring does not work here. But, some people never learn. 11/15 and 11/16 are good, as the Moon moves into nurturing Cancer.

11/19 is a powerhouse day, Mars moves into Scorpio, and the Moon makes a number of good aspects, including a trine to Jupiter, the planet of optimism and protection. The 20th is also good, with Mercury finally going direct.  11/21is a mixed bag, some very good aspects, but the temptation to overextend. Try not to.

The Sun enters Sagittarius on 11/22. 11/24 brings some unexpected changes. Try to view change in a positive way. It’s always a little unsettling, I know. 11/25 is beautiful. Love, and feeling like things can last. The New Moon in Sagittarius is on 11/26. The Fire signs bring joy, zeal, enthusiasm, and a zest for life.

Thanksgiving, on 11/28 is fucking fabulous. Six beautiful aspects make this a day for blessings, intention work, exciting changes, and limitless possibilities. 11/29 is also very good.

Wishing you all a beautiful month. Sending love to all. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
