Venus enters Pisces, and we suddenly have a chance at love, new or renewed.

Our New Year’s dreams seem truly possible, and they are if we work at them.

Sun Trines Ceres (Saturday, 3rd) and says that a diet just might work this time. If you are like me, and think that NY Resolutions to lose weight are hopelessly flawed, you could reconsider. A little optimism is warranted this time.  You’ll need to focus, and you should expect to be “tested” more than once.

Please don’t spend on anything until Monday. Ditto for career changes, and those aren’t really very good until after the Mercury Retrograde is over (February 1st).  In fact, almost anything done this month will be “revisited” somehow later.

Plan accordingly.  Don’t “burn bridges” with anyone this month.

Sunday may bring out your kinky side, if you have one. If not, then issues about money & taxes or money & inheritances. In some way, if Sunday is not about Sex & Romance then it is about “other people’s money.”  Sunday is also a good day to ask “what if?”

Monday tends to be a day to “lay low” in the UK & Europe (Jupiter is void) but okay in the US after about 11am EST.

Monday (Jan 5, 2009) is a “cross-ways” day: it is good for some and bad for others. No pronounced aspects on Monday, so this is a housekeeping day for many. Much of this day is about the official change from 2008 to 2009. (That’s not hard to predict, is it.)  But, again, do plan for having to “do it over.”

Astrology for New Year 2009, Part 1

The New Year asks us a few things and tells us some.

It asks us:

  1. Do you realize that what you say is what you will grow?  The stories you tell your friends this year will benefit, or haunt, you for years to come.
  2. Do you know what you need to know to improve your health?
  3. Are you in touch with your dreams?
  4. Do you know (a) who can help you make your dreams happen? and (b) who would hold you back and cheat you from achieving your goals?
  5. Do you know who is wasting your time and energy?
  6. Do you know how to best use your time and abilities to give back to the community?

Also, 2009 tells us:

  1. Whether it is Obama or someone else, we need to handle the large banks the way the phone company was handled in the 1980s: they need to be broken into smaller regional banks and made accountable to the people.
  2. Large corporations will engage in massive deception to keep us from seeing the truth: the real power is in the people, small business, and (at the biggest) regional organizations.
  3. The health care system, ESPECIALLY mental health, is overdue for an overhaul.  We continue to ignore the problems at our peril.
  4. Crime will be rampant, especially fraud and crimes based on deceit.
  5. More than any other year in recent times, this will be a year to get in touch with our educational needs, health needs, legal issues, dreams, intuitive abilities, and abilities to heal by teaching others.

Many of the forecasts on this blog focus on identifying potholes in the road ahead. Good news is available; read it here.

Interactions between Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune will be important in 2009, and they will bring us a chance to heal from the difficulties of 2008. But, we will have to guard against false hopes and deception. Even so, we may be given a glimpse of what we are truly capable of being.

Assuming you just read that analysis, let me expand upon it further. The bad news is that Jupiter will no longer soften the effect of Pluto in Capricorn. The good news is that Jupiter will not amplify the effect of Pluto in Capricorn. Instead, Jupiter moving into Aquarius means that Jupiter will interact with Neptune and Chiron to bring a major shift in how we “do business.” Speaking of “Business,” that field is ruled by both Jupiter and Saturn. If Saturn is the source of power for those who benefit from “bear markets,” then Jupiter is the source for those who favor “bull markets.”

Jupiter is saying what is coming to fore in the political world: growth will no longer come from larger corporations who continue to merge into larger corporations. The monoculture of giant, megalithic corporations will only continue to concentrate wealth for a few, leaving the rest of us to suffer. Jupiter is saying that our collective strength will come from recognizing the power of “the people.”

In the past, Democrats were known as “Trust Busters.” Will it happen now? Instead of bailing out the huge banks who have made bad decisions, will we break them up into smaller entities? Will we awaken to the idea that we need to restore power to regional and community banks? Or will we continue to “bail out” banks so they can have junkets on corporate jets and charge the citizenry 30% interest on credit cards?

To be sure, as mentioned in the other article, Mercury will have important interactions with Jupiter. That will be true for other planets, notably Venus, but that’s a topic for another article.

Jupiter transits into Aquarius on January 5th, during the shadow of the Mercury Retrograde. Mercury is Stationary Retrograde January 11th, which makes accomplishment difficult. Many businesses and institutions do not reopen until January 5th, after the holiday. Broadly speaking, they’ll be “in for a surprise,” as we sometimes say here in Dallas.
