It’s a time to listen to your creative side!
Don’t get ready to jump into the new year, yet, Libra! You have some emotional, mental, and spiritual housekeeping to deal with first – Mercury is in retrograde and you will need to work on getting organized up until January 8th. This is a great time to take inventory of your current situation in life BEFORE you dive into new ventures. Make lists, think about your current state of happiness, contemplate your emotional, financial, and physical well-being. This is an exercise we all should do more often, but for Libra, it is critical you start the new year off with a thorough introspection. After January 8th you can begin the new year in earnest!
The start of the year is a time that you will need to be patient and not let interruptions in your life bog you down or stress you out. Be prepared! Try some meditation, some long hot baths with a glass of wine, or try some long walks. You will probably be tested early in the year with some unexpected chaos, so be ready for it.
“…for Libra, it is critical you start the new year off with a thorough introspection.”
From the 3rd of January to the same day in February, Venus enters Pisces. This means that are great possibilities for good news related to your occupation. Take advantage of this month long opportunity and don’t allow negative emotions stand in the way of possible advancement in your career, pay upgrades, or even improvement with people you work with. The month might start with unexpected tumult with Mercury in retrograde, but your ruler, Venus, will be there to help grow your professional life!
A full moon in Cancer on the 12th and the fact that Mercury joins Pluto creates a key date for you. You should be close to, or are finishing some career related project at this date. It could be an idea that has found its cornerstone premise that you have been working on, the finality of a work project, or the end of a stressful assignment. Be aware that this date is telling you that should be done with a big phase of your work.

The 28th is another key date for you in January. A new moon in Aquarius, and Mars is entering Aries. This is a time for you to be creative- your mind will be clear and your creative juices will be flowing. Listen and trust your creative side. This is also a time that a new love interest could be afloat. But remember that what we love in our partner reflects what we love in ourselves and the opposite also applies.
People might be surprised at your displays of independence. Relationships may become harder to tolerate. It’s time to strike a balance between your own needs and those of others. Avoid reacting too quickly and instead listen to your heart.
