Aquarius 20 Jan - 18 Feb
When your birthday month ended over the weekend Mercury elected to stay on, giving you another week to finalise your game plan and resolutions for this new solar year. Yet in the days since the Sun left there have been some big developments, with Mercury's alliance with lucky Jupiter already raising the bar. Your birthday month may have ended with some clear intentions and expectations, but already there is a need to raise the barriers.
Pay attention to situations where you feel frustrated, claustrophobic or ready to pull your hair out if you remain stuck in this rut. The reality is that you're probably where you've always been, doing what you've always been doing and walls around your comfort zone haven't closed in around you. The difference is that it feels like they have. An alliance between Mercury and Jupiter is giving you the means to not just challenge old excuses, but to create a new game plan. The coming year doesn't have to be a repeat of every other year.
The Sun's departure from Aquarius over the weekend may have brought your birthday month to a close, but technically it doesn't end until Mercury leaves at the end of the week. Late to arrive in Aquarius this year Mercury is also late to leave and that is a real advantage. This has bought you an additional week to spend at the drawing board, finalising your game plan and resolutions and making the choices, decisions and plans that will give this new solar year a roadmap.
