A New Decade

A New Decade - New Year Astrology

"You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need"

We cross the threshold into a new decade this week! We transition from a '12' year (2019) to a '4' year (2020). We leave behind the confusing complications of 2019 (the '12' influence) and begin to deal with new restrictions and a clear need for new foundations in the new year of 2020 (the '4' influence). The need to look at our foundations is apparent this week in an increased demand to find some sense of security and safety. The transiting South Node in Capricorn is heavily accentuated this week by conjunctions with the Sun and Mercury, while foreshadowing next week's Jupiter-South Node conjunction. The weakness of the Capricorn South Node is seen in a blind need for recognition, approval, achievement, and yes, security, which willfully ignores the needs of others and our own need for connection and closeness. The solution is found through compassion and nurturing. However, the heavy demands in this week's atmosphere and a strong desire to find some sense of security may draw us away from compassion and produce an inclination to grasp for what we believe we need in order to be more safe and secure. In truth, we may actually wind up being much too hard on ourselves this week, believing that failure on any level is totally unacceptable, instead of understanding that the lessons of failure may be far more valuable than achievement, recognition and acclaim. Some of these challenges center on being too rigid and demanding of ourselves, walling ourselves off from our feelings, which seem unsteady and unsafe. Part of this week's journey involves finding ways to more effectively express ourselves, as well as our feelings. Mars arrives in expansive Sagittarius this week, encouraging us to speak our minds more honestly and openly.

There is a 'stirred up' optimism on Sunday and some opportunities for creative inspiration. However, there is also the potential to feel some kind of internal let-down. The Mercury-Uranus trine on Monday brings inspired insights and the Pisces Moon encourages creativity and helps us to connect with hidden inner resources. Curiosity is stirred on Tuesday, potentially leading us astray. Nonetheless, the strength of intuition is strong enough to help us extricate ourselves from any trouble our curiosity may create. Confidence is strong on New Year's day (Wednesday) and the broadly optimistic attitude helps us to adjust to some increasing feeling of limitation. There is some increased awareness of the magnitude of the tasks we face on Thursday. Communication is particularly difficult, leaving us feeling extraordinary pressure. Friday opens the doors to enhanced communication. Mars arrives in Sagittarius, increasing our capacity to speak our minds openly and honestly. By Saturday, we find some satisfying sense of completion - the transition to a new year and a new decade has been accomplished and we gain an improved sense of security just from having made the transition.
