The solar eclipse in Capricorn may have taken place last week, but that doesn't mean all the intense cosmic energy has calmed down. Do you feel the transformative waves continuing to crash all around you? Eclipse season may involve specific lunar events, but in all honesty, eclipse season truly lasts an entire season. You may be reaching the end of an era, but it's also the beginning of a beautiful new journey, and your January 7, 2019, weekly horoscope goes to show that there's still so much work left to be done.
However, just because it's disciplined Capricorn season doesn't mean that the work has to be boring. As a matter of fact, Venus — planet of love, romance, and luxury — enters spontaneous, wild, and open-minded Sagittarius on Jan. 7, catapulting your love and social life into an adventure that never stops being interesting. This means that Venus joins Mars — planet of primal instincts and drive — in the element of fire. After undergoing so much emotional introspection through water signs and analytical stress through earth, I think we can all use an energy shake-up, don't you think?
Remember to beware of rushed and aggressive thinking when Mercury — planet of cognitive function and logic — forms a tight square with Mars on Jan. 8. Allow yourself to feel what you feel, but save the major decisions for later. When the sun overflows with the energy of a conjunction with transformative and secretive Pluto on Jan. 11, you'll begin to understand where these feelings are stemming from. With Mercury conjunct Saturn taking place on Jan. 13, you can manifest the outcome that you desire.
