The focus is on friends, colleagues, and groups when January begins. The life-giving Sun in orderly Capricorn occupies your 11th House of Community until January 19. The upsides include working effectively with others and supporting causes in which you believe. This is a good time to turn a compassionate impulse into committed action as a volunteer. However, the Capricorn New Moon on January 1 is an explosive event that can change your relationships with others.
While sudden new connections with people and organizations can bring more excitement into your life, existing collaborations may break down due to unexpected events and emotional issues. The bottom line is that loyalty may not be enough to sustain cooperation if you no longer have passion for what you're doing together. Renewing your sense of purpose in your current situation or seeking other outlets for play and social action is recommended.
Matters of the heart take flight with the sensitive Cancer Full Moon on January 16 that falls in your 5th House of Romance and Creativity. Emotional issues could come to a head as your desire for more pleasure could trigger a crisis. But this can also represent a major breakthrough in expressing your feelings, showing your talent and, perhaps, falling in love.
On January 19 the Sun shifts into cool Aquarius and your 12th House of Secrets. Whether you need more quiet time or feel shuttled off to the side, this begins a 30-day period when privacy is a must. It's an ideal time for meditation, contemplation and peaceful walks in the woods or on the beach. Putting ambitions on hold and reducing obligations gives you time to heal, rest and contemplate your next big move.
Keep in Mind this Month
Cooperation may be hard to come by with your current teammates. If can't adjust to sudden changes or lack of interest, it might be time to look elsewhere for companionship and the right cause.
Key Dates for Pisces
SUPER NOVA DAYS
January 5: More Isn't Always Better
The Sun's stressful square with expansive Jupiter could encourage you to over reach or over-indulge. It's good to stretch ideas of what you can do but make sure that you think carefully before raising expectations too high.
January 31: Passion without Limit
Jupiter's opposition to intense Pluto can turn a small disagreement into a major philosophical debate. Finding a moderate position makes it hard to compromise as the power of your beliefs and fears could become excessive.
