Daily General Horoscopes - Thursday 24 January
The timing of the Moon's first visit to your work sector for the year couldn't be better, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters during Mercury's final hours in your career sector. Since the Sun left your career sector over the weekend, things have had a chance to settle, while more playful forces since then have created a diversion and a distraction. Today you not only have job and career forces coming together but a mix of intuition and logic, imagination and intelligence.
In his final hours in an adventurous part of your chart, Mercury will be working with today's playful lunar vibes to keep your professional hat off as much as possible. Knowing that his return to your career sector will bring a chance to get your head in the game, this is less a case of holding out and more a case of embracing a sense of curiosity this is nurturing. Things are about to become more serious and objective professionally, with the more you can go into this with your mind and your options open the better.
This time last week you had both the Sun and Mercury in your financial sector, with the Sun having left last weekend and now Mercury leaving today. While this does take some of the focus off money matters, this is more a chance to pull back, using the smart head for money Mercury leaves you with to take the step back that allows you to look at the big picture. In the meantime, Mercury follows the Sun into an adventurous part of your chart, with exciting implications.
Forces across the income, work and career fronts have been energised by not only a total lunar eclipse in your income sector earlier in the week, but a major coming together of forces on the job and career fronts. That will continue, despite the fact that the Moon has moved on. Yet you have also reached an important day for relationship matters and for communication in particular. As the Moon makes its first visit to your communication sector for the year Mercury, the planet of communication is in his final hours in your relationship sector.
The Moon's departure from Leo yesterday may have brought the lunar eclipse earlier in the week to a close, but what this has triggered has taken on a life of its own. This was a chance to once again come face to face with your personal truth and even you are not yet fully aware of what this has triggered, this is a bell that can't be unrung. It could take until the Moon comes full circle next month, for the full implications to be revealed. Yet already, trust a strong truth meter this has left you with.
For Mercury, leaving a playful part of your chart and returning to your work sector today is a real shift in focus, but for you, the shift isn't that extreme. With the Sun already in your work sector, you already have your work hat on, with Mercury returning with the intellectually savvy edge needed to get your head in the game, work smarter and more objectively. At the same time, while Mercury might leave a playful part of your chart, strong forces staying on will ensure life won't suddenly become all work and no play.
With the Moon returning to Libra for its first visit for the year, there is a need to keep your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, but your mind and your options open. The Moon only left Libra on New Year's Eve, allowing you to begin the New Year with an intuitive edge from the get go. The price you have had to pay for that advantage is waiting this long for the first visit of 2019. Yet over the coming days, this is likely to confirm what you already know, with every reason for confidence in your own judgement and gut.
Just three weeks before Mars not only returns to your relationship sector but opens the door to a massive new relationship journey Mercury, the planet of communication leaves your communication sector today. While there is a need to make Mercury's final hours count, making communication a priority, there isn't the urgency you would expect. That is because the communication gods have this covered and already have their big guns on the field, ready to next month's relationship developments.
On the other side of an alignment between Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, their first here in over a decade, there is likely to be a new sense of confidence, especially when it comes to following your heart. Yet while their alignment ended yesterday, this is something that is still growing, which means this is being bolstered by something else. That something else is Mars, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos moving into his final three weeks in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, with all guns blazing.
Mercury's departure from Capricorn today, on the heels of the Sun's departure last weekend, brings a valuable chance to stand back. With Venus still 11 days away, this gives you a break where you are able to get your head out of the game and focus more on the big picture. This is in essence, a chance to come up for air. Yet in his final hours in Capricorn, Mercury gives you the intellectually savvy edge needed to move forward with ideas on the table. Mercury moves on to join the Sun in your income sector, with his smart head for money able to capitalise on anything the lunar eclipse earlier in the week has triggered.
What a difference a few days can make. If your birthday month and new solar year got off to a bumpy start, thanks to a total lunar eclipse during the Sun's first full day in Aquarius, the fog of war has not only cleared but Mercury's return today is a chance to get your head in the game. It is Mercury's intellectually savvy edge that will allow you to sift through and make sense of anything the lunar eclipse brought to the surface. This replaces an emotionally charged start to the week with a more objective focus.
While the month long wind down of your old solar year began over the weekend, it is only as Mercury joins the Sun in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart today that you get a chance to take this seriously. While a busy start to the week and all that has been triggered across the income, work and career fronts is still unfolding you will find it easier to not only find time to hear yourself think, but make the most of that time. It is not the amount of time you are able to allocate for navel gazing, but making maximum use of the time available.
