Venus links powerfully to Pluto as we enter the New Year but with Mercury rewinding, attention to detail will be essential. Fortunately later in the month, Mars, Mercury and Uranus end Retrogrades. However, the Full Moon of the 6th is still influenced by the Winged Messenger's retreat and logic can battle with emotion. The Aquarius New Moon of the 21st however, is really exciting, combining with Pluto and angling really helpfully to Jupiter. New perspectives and possibilities can follow.
