Just as the New Year begins, Mercury, the planet of communication, slows to a crawl, as it enters the sign of Aquarius on New Year’s Day, an ideal symbol for ushering in the new, and energizing breakthrough change. However, Mercury stations retrograde on Monday, Jan. 4, and then slips back into Capricorn on Friday, January 8, and will be retrograde until Jan. 25. This grants you the first week of 2016 to figure out exactly what needs to change, and then essentially the rest of the month to exercise strategies to put the plan into place.So, if you are in the process of making those New Year’s resolutions, expect some tweaks and torques to your plan. Make allowances for things to be re-worked, and for commitments with others to be re-considered. January is about recovering a necessary discipline too, as it relates to your dedication toward expressing your most natural and honest way in the world. Jupiter, your truth, is also moving retrograde in Virgo on Thursday, January 7. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, which will also be retrograde, so consider January being a month that offers you a platform to recover more pieces of yourself, so you can live more authentically and wholly in the world. Often times we must return to the woods, in order to find the key we left behind. Don’t be afraid to go there.. the light of your truth awaits your return!. ~ Kristin Fontana ~ Evolutionary Astrologer
