January 2018 by Ananur. Calculated for  east coast time zone     1.


*Please forgive me… I have been as of late, hearing songs in my mind as I write, and so may include them here, I hope you don’t mind it.



Mercury is no longer retrograde! There will be absolutely NO planets retrograde from January 2 at 9:11 a.m. until March 8 at 11:46 p.m. This is the longest phase I’ve seen (ever!) for there to be no planets retrograde! The most ideal time to launch a new project is between New Moon and Full Moon. That’s always true.


January 1 the Full Moon takes place at 9:24 p.m. If you see it rising at approximately 6 p.m. you will understand why it’s termed, “SuperMoon.” It will seem larger and brighter because it is closer. The Moon is at 11 degrees of Cancer opposite the Sun at 11 degrees of Capricorn. At this time those who gather will naturally instinctively be drawn to discuss the future and what can be done to elevate awareness of what must take place for harmonizing our planet. Inventions come to mind, out of the blue, intuition in action, offering helpful clues as to what inventions must manifest now. Don’t hold back what comes, together much can be created, for the good of all.


January 1-24 Jupiter in Scorpio is in a super fine aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. From the Upanishad’s this fits with the energy of the aspect: “There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens, this is the light that shines in your heart.” If we all believed and took this to heart, the world would change immediately. This aspect suggests that through group consensus focused on what is the highest good for all… many positive shifts will occur.


January 1-3 The Sun & Venus in Capricorn are in a positive aspect to Neptune in Pisces indicating a natural inclination to extend love and compassion without regard for recognition, but simply to give for the simple reason that it, “feels good.”  This fine aspect could bring your true love mate into your life, for real. Are you open to that?


January 1-6 Mercury in Sagittarius is in a favorable aspect with Uranus in Aries. 120 degrees apart. Called a “trine.” We’re signaled to pay closer attention now, to intuition. The innovative genius wants to come through for humanitarian ideals, not to make you famous, although it could make you very rich on all levels. Also, in the news inventions that lead the way out of the past and into the future will be known.


January 1-24 Jupiter in Scorpio is in a fine aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, representing truth and integrity. Famous people speak out. Or rather they continue to speak out and the scales are balancing the karmic debt. Those who have cheated and lied can no longer get away with it. I can’t help but think of the Native Americans being given blankets that people with tuberculosis had used in hospitals. What kind of karma befalls us, for that? We stole their land and cheated them. whoa. Now what? That’s just one example! With Saturn now in Capricorn the word “karma” keeps coming up, as I write. Climate change. We’ve (I’ve) got to insist that attention be paid to this to preserve our precious planet Gaia. We need to protect the Arctic from being drilled.


January 2 Uranus has been retrograde since early August of this year.

With Uranus now direct, until August 7 (2018) innovations come forth that change our lives forever. We’ve just had the announcement that UFO’s are for real and acknowledged by our government. This was announced when the Sun & Mercury were conjunct the galactic center of our Milky Way Galaxy. How perfect is astrology! Well, it’s based on mathematics, nothing airy-fairy. It’s time to be HU who (HU= Divine Presence in Arabic) we really are and not care about what others think or what they expect us to be like. Let your “freak flag fly,” as David Crosby sang (allow your individuality to shine). Don’t hold back, is what Uranus declares. Uranus also stands for breaking out of stale routines: jobs, careers, and marriages that hold no growth. Uranus will create a crisis for you, in order to get you unstuck, if you don‘t do what your intuition is already guiding you to do! If you don’t believe me listen to this great oldie: ha ha. Good ole Momma.

Just read that optimists enjoy playing music from their past. Yup.


January 6-10 (ends at 8 a.m.) The Sun, Venus and Pluto are conjunct in Capricorn and are in a positive aspect to Mars & Jupiter in Scorpio ushering in a huge amount of energy and unconditional love that will bring about, “all good things.” Love is deepened and good intentions lead to healing. The sexual predators list has increased and there is therapy to help those who admit they have a problem and need help. Some are egotistical enough to think they are “real men,” and have no problem just a healthy sexual ”appetite.” Those who continue to say, it’s a lie,” will get blindsided karmically. This aspect offers the karmic blindsiding as a pathway to evolution not, as a “punishment.” Cosmic forces smile on us: who are dedicated to the good of all humanity, and of course for Gaia Herself. Blessings come. *I don’t know much about the stock market or “bitcoins.” This aspect will make many, many people very rich. These folks will use some of it to help those in need, or create new charities that are practical, legal, useful and honest.


January 8-9 Mercury at 27 degrees of Sagittarius is at the exact point of the Galactic Center of the Milky Way Galaxy. The last time this took place December 6…Trump announced his support for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and looked what happened as a result. Now what?


January 11-13 Mercury is conjunct Saturn in Capricorn. Some tough decisions need to be made. The mood is somber.



January 11-14 the Sun and Venus in Capricorn are in a challenging aspect to Uranus in Aries. This aspect stirs up romantic energies. It’s a high, for sure, but won’t last forever. Enjoy the energy while it’s here.  Unexpected occurrences push your buttons requesting that you drop your ideas of “how life is supposed to be.” The Sun, Venus & Pluto are  still in a positive aspect to Mars and Jupiter.



January 11-31 Mercury in Capricorn brings about sensible thinking. This placement of Mercury finds our minds are slowing down. Our thoughts are concerned with practical matters in the present, and how to deal with issues sensibly. It’s like…if you’re ready to make a proposal you’ll probably hear something like this:  “Ok, great idea, go away, think about it some more, then come back and convince me. I want you to show me on paper exactly how this is going to work.” So do the necessary research carefully and soon you’ll be a success!
