If there is going to be one week this year when you need to remove yourself from the madding crowd and seek solitude, this is it. This isn’t so much about avoiding crazy people as it is about finding uninterrupted time for some serious thinking about the direction your life is going in. I know, I know, you just made your resolutions a week ago. But they may have been made hastily (and under the influence of champagne) so now it’s time to do a deep dive and really figure things out.
This month over half the solar system is hunkered down in your twelfth house of closure and transition. This is where we make major decisions about what (and whom) is staying or going. There is a lot of self reflection that needs to go on here; honesty is critical. Every single day there are aspects demanding that you get real about your future plans. Fortunately, these aspects are happy ones. So even though it may be hard to cut something out, the end result is that it will all be for the good.
By the way, this doesn’t mean cutting out everyone from your life or quitting the (soul sucking) day job. Go within first and ask yourself what negative thought patterns or habits need to go. There’s no point in pointing your finger at outside influences that are annoying you if you don’t do important inner work first.
Monday and Wednesday are auspicious for career matters, and there is an air of confidentiality here. Don’t tell your colleagues, therefore, that you’re looking for another job or you’re shooting for a promotion within the company. Quietly snoop what the competition is doing. Research a side business but don’t blab about it on social media.
Strong romantic feelings may arise on Tuesday, and again on Thursday at which time Mercury will enter your house of daydreams. If a love alliance has been wonderful, you will want to spend more alone time with your lover over the next three weeks rather than hanging with the tribe.
But if a romance has headed south, you may have some decisions to make. It’s important if you’re in this situation (or you’re single) that you don’t fantasize about someone or tell yourself that things are good when it reality, they’re not.
