MERCURY transits:

MERCURY is in SAGITTARIUS until 5 January 2019: You want to know, to experiment, to discover because all these helps you to pay more attention to the environments. In this way your receptivity and curiosity will be higher, and you may understand better who you are and what you may do on this planet. Liberty with no understanding of reality is the best enemy of human beings.

MERCURY is in CAPRICORN between 5 and 24 January 2019: You are wiser or only more cautious in communication? Why? Only because for you become more important credibility and need for authority in front of others? Do not remain stuck up in your ego only for the sake of your credibility and authority. Release you from your own chains!

MERCURY is in AQUARIUS between 24 January and 10 February: You have unusual and original ideas and you should write down and start to choose the best of them and transform them into reality. You may have rebellious actions and try to change the world. That is why on this planet people are not happy and stay in their own misery because everybody wants to change the world. But did they start with themselves? What about you?

VENUS transit:

VENUS is still in SCORPIO and until 7 January 2019: Sexual intensity is also vital ingredient in your primary relationship. Without this emotional and sexual intensity, you feel that your relationship is lacking a vital quality, and you may even seek solace in another’s arms.

SATURN is already in CAPRICORN, until March 21st, 2020.  Saturn is dignified and functioning well. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those of Your career choices that don’t accurately reflect Your authentic selves. Capricorn and Saturn want respect and Saturn in Capricorn will work hard to earn it. Conservation is a big theme now. Rewards come from putting in the effort. You might also be striving for more authority in an area of your lives now. Saturn demands simplicity, definition, realism, and truth and it tests your weak areas that need strengthening.

IMPORTANT NOTES: In all my astrological research and interpretations, I use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history. When I am writing about aspects between planets, I use aspect from sign to sign; I am using a traditional way of interpretation of aspects. An aspect is not a must to be at perfect orb to have an effect. It is enough if we have a planet in a sign that forms an aspect with another planet from another sign. The most powerful aspects are: conjunctions, oppositions, squares and trines. 

I wish you the best transits and a Happy New Year!
