Happy New Year!  We are starting out this year with Mercury REtrograde through January 18th.  REsolutions will be more about REleasing, and REsolving before we are able to implement new plans.  Energy planet Mars will be in Retrograde until the 12th before its influence is accessible, too.  Eclipses come in the spring and fall this year to shake up old patterns and a Venus Retrograde from late July until early September has us rethinking our relationships and values.  Lucky Jupiter starts out in Aries but moves on to Taurus in May for the rest of the year.  Taskmaster Saturn will leave Aquarius in March and bring its discipline to Pisces for the next two years. Transformation planet Pluto will finally leave Capricorn in March and visit Aquarius until June.  Then it retreats back into Capricorn for the rest of the year to complete the metamorphosis of our personal and global structures.
