If you are looking for omens, then starting the year with the Moon, Venus and Ceres in Scorpio is a good one and also a phenomenal advantage. There is a one in 12 chance of starting the New Year with the Moon in Scorpio, giving you an intuitive edge and an intuitive read on the year’s dynamics from the get go. The last time you moved into the New Year with the Moon in Scorpio was in 2011, eight years ago. On the other hand, Venus has no right to be here, having returned to Scorpio in early September, for what should have been a 24 day visit. Venus returned during Jupiter’s final months and has stayed on to ensure your heart not only has a voice from the get go, but you still have access to all the possibilities the planet of luck and expansion has laid down the foundations for. The year also begins with Mars in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, with the planet of love working to ensure the romantic flame keeps burning even after he leaves on New Year’s Day. This is important, for this is when life is set to become a lot busier and exciting. It begins with Mars’ return to your work sector on New Year’s Day and continues with Uranus’ direct turn here on 7th January and Venus’ return to your income sector a day later. A total lunar eclipse in your career sector on 21st January will act as a trigger for developments across the income, work and career fronts. Yet with Neptune and Chiron staying on in a playful part of your chart and the North Node in an adventurous part of your chart, a balance between work and play will continue to be policed.
