Support from confidantes and from professional allies is an important resource to take advantage of this year. You are traversing a cycle of immense personal transformation. Channels are open, but you must make use of them, so don’t let yourself become isolated. Connect with those you love, who uplift and strengthen you. Seek out appropriate guidance, when necessary. Opportunities for deep healing are at hand. Now is the time to consciously work through old imprints, suppressed rage, or self-concepts that no longer serve who you’re becoming. Trust the process.

Your Week Ahead Astrology for Jan. 19-24, 2020
This week is all about the Moon, which is a pointer to other events. Think of the Moon as the cue ball in pool. Inherently neutral, it knocks into the other planets by aspect. It also picks up the energy of its sign more than any other object in the chart.
We’re moving toward a New Moon in Aquarius on Friday, Jan. 24 (the Moon enters Sagittarius today). Before we get there, the Moon passes through Capricorn, making conjunctions to all that stuff going on there.
What is this all about? It will feel different for everyone, though pay attention to the way your concept of family may rule your life. Getting some independence is easier said than done, then the phone rings and it’s (pick a relative) who wants to (pick an activity) and then you get there and remember why you don’t want to do that (because they drive you crazy or make you feel inferior or induce you to hate yourself or whatevs).
Monday the Moon is conjunct Mars in Sagittarius and square Neptune in Pisces. This is an “avoid self-destructive behavior” kind of thing; i.e., if you’re pissed off, don’t drink a bottle of wine and wonder why you feel worse.
Under any intense Neptune setup, you must devote yourself to truth. Walk around muttering, “Where’s your data?” (That is the investigative reporting mantra.)
The Sun enters Aquarius tomorrow (Monday, Jan. 20) at 9:55 am EST. This will open the energy up a little; it’s a more social vibe than what we’ve been experiencing. The Aquarius Sun is square Uranus in Taurus all week. This will keep us perky and alert. Surprise yourself and do something a little extra interesting.
