2010 Astrological Update

January 2010 Astrology Blog

Before I go into what is up for astrologically for January 2010, I want to cover a few items.

First, this blog is about the major aspects for the month.

If you want me to go over what it means when a planet goes in to a new sign or house, and how that affects your Sun sign, let me know. 

I figured that there are hundreds of blogs that cover that information.  I want to go over the bigger picture and to cover what we as a nation and species are experiencing.

Astrology is like a weather report, if you know a snowstorm is coming it is up to you to dress for it.  Astrology gives you a heads up.

Secondly, for those of you who have been following my blog, you know I have mentioned the probability of an attack on our soil during Christmas.

In my last month’s blog, I had major concerns and expressed them as follows. “If the plan is detected on December 19th, they (terrorists) will have to retreat and reorganize.  If not, December 24th will have more than Santa coming down the chimney.  The focus will be transportation (3rd house issues), or a mass postal/internet scam.”

Well we certainly had a transportation issue with the attempted downing of a jetliner flying into Detroit by a zealot.

So what is happening astrologically in January 2010?

All time indicated are for Pacific Standard Time.

Here are the basics:

Sun goes into Aquarius at 8:28 pm PST on January 19th.

Moon– We will have an Annular Solar Eclipse at 25 degrees Capricorn on January 14 at 11:11 pm…it is also the New Moon. 


Area of influence click on this link;


It will not be seen in the USA.

  • ·        Full Moon – Friday, January 29th at 10 degrees of Leo at 10:18pm.
  • ·        Good time for a party!

Mercury is Retrograde in Capricorn until January 15, it goes stationary direct at 8:52 am.  Mercury starts and ends January at 18 degrees of Capricorn.

Venus starts January at 09 degrees of Capricorn.

  • ·        Goes into Aquarius on the 18th at 06:35 am and ends the month at 17 degrees of Aquarius.

Mars is Retrograde in Leo all month. Starting at 19 degrees and

 ending the month at 09 degrees of Leo.

Jupiter starts at 27 Aquarius.

  • ·        Goes into Pisces on 17th at 06:11 pm and ends the month at 03 degrees of Pisces.

 Saturn starts at 05 Libra.

  • .        Goes Stationary Retrograde on January 13th at 7:58 am and ends the month at 4 degrees of Libra.

Uranus starts at 23 degrees of Pisces and ends the month at 24 degrees of Pisces.

Neptune starts at 25 Aquarius and ends the month at 26 Aquarius.

Pluto starts the month at 03 degrees of Capricorn and ends the month at 04 degrees of Capricorn.

Moons Nodes start the month at 22 Capricorn and end at 20 Capricorn.


The only major Ptolemaic aspect this month is the exact square of Saturn RX 4 Libra and Pluto 4 Capricorn on January 31st at 2:07pm. (see November blog for details on this square).

Having this square this close to a Full Moon, and having the Moon oppose Jupiter at 10:16 AM the same day, indicates that we will have an Earthquake on the west coast of the Americas.

Jupiter moves into the sign of Pisces – January 17th to June 6th.

Retrogrades back into the last degrees of Pisces on September 10th and goes into Aries for good on January 23, 2011.

Heads up Pisces, good times are here for you.  Jupiter loves Pisces; it is the traditional ruler of the fish.

Jupiter is known as the great benefic.  Wherever Pisces lives in your chart, Jupiter will expand and manifest.  It brings opportunities, inspiration, the urge to improve, and greater confidence, risk taking.  You must take action; Jupiter has little patience with the fearful.  Great time to get that manuscript to the publisher.

Watch out for scattering ones Energy due to too many projects.
