Draw on the enhanced capacity for strategic thinking available to you this year, when faced with necessary finance-related decisions. Navigating tension between security on the one hand, and creative freedom on the other, may factor in here. Innovative breakthroughs are possible, but prepare for contingencies. Keep an even keel, and you should be able to make satisfying progress on projects tied to your highest ideals. Your community and supportive allies can play an important role now. So don’t hesitate to reach out to those who share your core values.

Your Weekend Astrology for Jan. 18-19, 2020
Today’s Scorpio Moon is a passionate, sensitive, often secretive Moon placement. It can also describe an urge to get beneath surface veneers — whether of your own emotions and motives, or those of others.
Scorpio is a fixed sign, yet you can work with it best by keeping your emotions moving and transforming, rather than getting stuck in them.
The Moon harmonizing today with planets like Jupiter in Capricorn (friendliness, future plans) and Neptune in Pisces (fantasy, creativity) suggests engaging with people you know you enjoy, who share your goals, or who intrigue you. If you like making art (solo or with friends), today’s results could be quite provocative.
Note that Mercury in Aquarius is square Uranus in Taurus, exact today. Mercury and Uranus describe a brisk mental pace, perhaps some inspiration, and needing new stimulation.
Add in the Scorpio Moon, and the urge to purge — in terms of emotions you need to express — or the urge to splurge — in terms of the emotional stimulation you crave — could become quite strong. What you say or what you hear from someone could surprise you. Let revelations spur your mind forward — not to premature conclusions, but rather to the next questions that could take you deeper.
At 5:41 pm EST Sunday, the Moon moves to the more open, buoyant sign of Sagittarius. Sunday evening might not be your typical time to socialize, but don’t be surprised if you feel drawn toward the more extraverted side of the spectrum. Freely expressing the affection and appreciation you have for others will likely benefit not only them, but you as well.
