January 18th is an opportunity to develop a ripening situation. Venus in Sagittarius squares the Pisces South Node/Virgo North Node and Jupiter Rx. A square to the Nodes creates tension, and that tension pushes you to make changes. Relationship, financial, creative or self-esteem issues will confront you with the need to take something further, or say goodbye to an outdated scenario. The square to Jupiter Rx (which rules Sagittarius) can inflate expectations, spending or indulgence, and part of the tension will involve what you do with "more." Remember that the Jupiter Rx/North Node conjunction (exact on January 23rd) is about revision, refinement or building on the reality of what you already know.
On January 20th, the Sun enters Aquarius, and January 23rd sees a Full Moon in Leo. Full Moons illuminate, and Leo’s spotlight is particularity bright. This Moon will hit Venus (which enters Capricorn on the same day) with an awkward inconjunct, hi-lighting the tension between wants and needs. These two things may be quite different. Whether or not this Moon marks an achievement for you (and it very well could) there may be a scratchy sense of dissatisfaction, or even displeasure.
Mercury Rx conjoins Pluto in Capricorn (also on January 23rd) emphasizing shadows behind the light. Secrets or intense conversations/discoveries will be part of the culmination. Mercury squares Uranus in Aries on January 20th, resonating with the Sun’s Aquarius ingress and emphasizing the Uranus/Aquarius vibe of shock and clarity. Black Moon Lilith will also be opposing Uranus (and squaring Mercury/Pluto) upping the stakes around what’s communicated. The inconvenient truth, dark understanding or uncomfortable message from the fringes will contrast with this Full Moon’s brilliance.
Venus in your sector of opportunities squares Jupiter Rx and the Nodes. A long distance romance, chance to travel/explore, or an issue involving education, publishing or legal matters is ripe to accelerate from a background issue (or fantasy) to reality. You’re being asked to take what’s untested and make room for it in your daily life. Jupiter and the North Node in your sector of work and health urge you to improve an existing solution/routine to make this happen.
Venus’ move into your career sector turns your attention to professional status/reputation and/or strategic career relationships. The Full Moon in your sector of self-expression spotlights a creative or romantic achievement, a celebration or issue involving children/pregnancy. But the tense inconjunct to Venus suggests that this achievement may not quite fit with your professional goals. Both are desired, but it may be a conflict between personal versus professional. Mercury Rx and Pluto in your career sector (square Uranus in your sign) add the possibility of a disruptive public announcement or discussion with management.
Venus in your sector of shared resources squares Jupiter Rx and the Nodes. A financial issue (debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances) or development involving physical/emotional intimacy, can see you poised on the brink of something sweet. A situation that you desire could be set to expand, as what once seemed impossibly distant is now up close and personal. Too, a creative project or something involving children/pregnancy could be ripening. Jupiter and the North Node in your sector of self-expression says all you have to do is consider the details of what you’ve created so far. Consider how much you’ve invested, and how much more you’re willing to invest.
Venus’ move into your opportunities sector gets you looking at next-step strategic planning. Travel, distance, legal issues or education may be factors. The Full Moon in your domestic sector ties in a culmination at home/with family, but the inconjunct to Venus says that future logistics may not quite line up with domestic issues. Adjustments to both your present scenario and future plans are in order. Mercury Rx and Pluto in your opportunities sector can reveal a legal detail or official document/piece of news that hits you hard, although it’s been simmering for awhile. Too, you may be inspired with a solution that helps you overcome a long-distance or legal difficulty.
Venus in your relationship sector squares Jupiter Rx and the Nodes, triggering choices about a domestic partnership. It may be time to move in together or decide on a future domestic path together. Too, these energies could be pulling you apart. Whether you’re on the same path or separating, the theme is expansion. Jupiter and the North Node in your domestic sector urge you to review past and current discussions about home, mortgages, relocation options, a home business or family plans.
Venus’ move into your sector of shared resources turns your attention to what you share with someone. Debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances or physical/emotional intimacy are themes. Joint spending habits, or what one of you is willing/able to contribute may be another theme. The Full Moon in your communication sector makes an awkward inconjunct to Venus, suggesting dramatic and revealing discussions/announcements about the above topics. The answer or outcome won’t be exactly what one of you wants to hear, and yet, you’ll have to work with what you’re given. Mercury Rx and Pluto in your sector of shared resources add more depth to the discussion as a heavy issue is revisited. Too, something you’ve been researching may be uncovered, prompting the illuminating Full Moon discussion.
Venus in your sector of routine squares Jupiter Rx and the Nodes, suggesting an opportunity involving health, obligations or work tasks. A beneficial co-worker relationship, chance to improve your health/diet, or make an upgrade is the key to taking an ideal and making it real.

Too, you could reach a point where you have to confront why you’re still dissatisfied, even if you’re getting everything you want. Mercury Rx and Pluto in your partnership sector indicate pointed discussions that uncover major issues/secrets, or a conversation that triggers a relationship breakthrough.
Venus in your sector of self-expression squares Jupiter Rx and the Nodes, signalling a moment of creative or romantic achievement, or a desired outcome regarding children/pregnancy. The key will be taking what you share with someone, or resources that someone else has control over, and creating your own security/self-reliance within that framework. A gift, reason to celebrate or chance for you to shine can be your ticket, and Jupiter and the North Node urge you to work what you got. There may be a chance to earn more or get more, but you may also be tempted to squander your resources in a moment of self-indulgence. Proceed carefully.
Venus’ move into your sector of routine gets you looking at what your next, practical steps are. What do you have to do to make this happen? How will it impact your bottom line?

Venus in your domestic sector squares Jupiter Rx/North Node in your sign and the South Node in your partnership sector.

Whether a relationship is starting or ending, you can still feel happiness or relief. But with this change comes the awareness that your fantasies/expectations look different in the light of day.
