Numerologically, this is an 11 year (2+0+0+9=11).
This master number which is never reduced to 2 (1+1=2), reveals that a critical mass of people will be reaching mastery in 2009. This year is a great portal into the unknown, a chance to powerfully embody our divine truth in our daily lives.
Jupiter enters Aquarius on January 5 2009 until January 19, 2010
The wellbeing of the whole of humanity very much becomes a matter of individual concern. We become more and more aware on a mass scale of the consequences of our personal actions. As we change certain of our habits, we are able to create a healthier living habitat for all to thrive in. The understanding of what abundance means shifts. Human resources become the true wealth.
North Node enters Capricorn on July 26, 2009 until March 2011
We enter a period when we are able to access deep personal wisdom. As we draw upon past-life experiences of austerity and inner power, we are able to manifest our dreams in concrete reality.
Saturn enters Libra on October 29, 2009 until October 2012
This transit is great news for all those who have been single for a while. This is a period in time when more and more soul-linked people are drawn towards each other. Spiritually grounded relationships are solid and long-lasting enabling the achievement of goals that reach even beyond what our imagination thought could be accomplished. Existing relationships become deeper and more committed with a clearer understanding of the purpose of sharing the adventure of life with one another. Shaky relationships may dissolve to be immediately replaced by connections more conducive to growth. Humanity evolves through solid and realistic relationships.
Pluto in Capricorn until November 2024
Structures and companies which are not based in integrity continue to crumble. Lies and manipulations surface. All that was hidden becomes more and more obvious and gradually impossible to cover up. Small business based in integrity thrive. People with clear and sound values see their efforts rewarded. We need to revise the values we place on money. It may become less about needing ever increasing amounts of wealth and more about appreciating and using what we have.
Solar Eclipse on Sunday 25 at 11:55 PM at 6º30’ Aquarius
This degree corresponds in the Sabian Symbols to “a child is seen being born out of an egg”. This is an incredible eclipse to start the new year with. We are literally being reborn within our own bodies. As we shed what no longer serves us, we rediscover our divine truth. Many could all of a sudden relocate, change jobs, leave or enter partnerships as they become very clear asto what their real purpose is.
Mercury turns retrograde on January 11 at 7º42’ Aquarius until January 31 when it will have reached 21º51’
During this three-week period our friendships could radically change. We could meet exciting new people walking to the sound of their own drummer who free us from our past. Humanitarian concerns become an area of interest. We are drawn to the unusual and we assert more clearly our uniqueness. We could rebel against limited/limiting structures that hold us back in old patterns, and seek new experiences and adventures that expand our consciousness of ourselves and the world we live in.
Saturn is retrograde this whole month from 21º46’ to 20º57’ Virgo
These two degrees are described in the Sabian Symbols by “a royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones” and “a girls’ basketball team”. As we remember our true divine heritage, we enrich it by using it consciously. The feminine side of men and women, becomes stronger. We rely more on our intuition, our feelings and our inner voice. We turn chaos into a new order.

During the next 3 weeks, we communicate in a much more open-minded way. We could start being interested in unusual topics.

Saturday 1/3: Venus enters Pisces (4:36 AM until Feb 2)
During the next month, our emotions take a much more sacred tonality. We feel more compassionate and sensitive to beauty in ethereal ways. Music, meditation, the ocean are very soothing to our souls. We connect with the divine in the people we meet. A feeling of oneness with all, permeates the atmosphere. Artists could find this time particularly inspiring.
Sunday 1/4: Venus Sextile Pluto (11:31 AM)
Our emotional ties are stronger. Sexuality becomes more passionate. Our feelings are more intense. An existing relationship is likely to become deeper with an ability to shake off whatever may have become stagnant. A new relationship formed under this transit has strong sexual overtones and is likely to be very long lasting. There is a sense of destiny in our intimate bonds which transform us at deep levels. Our own sexual charisma is strong today. A fabulous day for an exciting date. Financial matters are greatly enhanced by this transit leading to the possibility of great wealth.
Friday 1/9: Sun Sextile Uranus (7:29 AM)
A day where to expect the unexpected. An urgency to shake things up, could bring out much rebelliousness and maybe some selfishness in us. A day to make clean breaks and start anew. It is important that we remain as flexible as possible as many new options could re-direct our course in the most positive of ways. We should however we careful with rash, impulsive behavior both in ourselves and in others.
Sunday 1/11: Mercury turns retrograde (8:44 AM until 1/31 at 11:11 PM), Sun Trine Saturn (10:02 AM)
Regarding Mercury retrograde, kindly refer to the opening paragraph. A great day to clear our desk of back-logged work, to do our administration and set clear intentions for the future. We are very structured and able to make long-term plans. Our ambitions are backed by hard work. Our seriousness enables us to set valuable projects into motion.
Sunday 1/18: Mercury conjunct Jupiter (11:07 AM)

And long-distance trip began today is greatly protected and beneficial. We are able to connect with many people in an open-minded way and create new friends as a result. Signing up to learn a foreign language or exploring another culture are also perfect uses of today’s magnificent transit.
Monday 1/19: Sun enters Aquarius (2:41 PM until Feb 18)
During the next month, we are drawn to others, humanitarian endeavors and unusual topics of research. As we assert our individuality and uniqueness, we free others to do reveal what is special about them. Our leadership abilities and independence come to the forefront with rebelliousness. We are so geared towards the future that we could overlook some details in our present. We are able to connect things that don’t seem connected and could be led to interesting new paths that liberate us from old conditioning.
Tuesday 1/20: Sun conjunct Mercury (7:59 AM), Mercury enters Capricorn (9:36 PM until Feb 14)

We could feel the need for silence and retreat to deepen and structure our thoughts.
Thursday 1/22: Mars Sextile Uranus (9:00 AM), Venus Conjunct Uranus (5:02 PM)
We should be careful of irrational or rash behavior both in ourselves and others while driving or using sharp, metal instruments. In an urgency to make things happen, we could cut valuable bridges. This, in the end, could prove beneficial in that it forces us to free ourselves from the past. A great day to shake a relationship out of the routine it has fallen into and introduce new ideas or revisit the foundation of the existing emotional link with another. A new relationship formed today is likely to be unusual and exciting but could also prove short lived if inflexibility is present. We need to go with the flow and not cling to another, but remain independent and free, valuing friendship over love.
Friday 1/23: Sun Conjunct Jupiter (9:45 PM)
One of the luckiest days of the whole year. Whatever we touch today could turn into gold. If we remain open, incredible opportunities are likely to come our way. The right door opens at the right moment and we are where we’re supposed to be to grab the luck available to us. A wonderful transit for anything related to the law, religion, long distance travel, athletic endeavors and higher education. We could get a lucky break financially and create valuable new opportunities for ourselves. Fabulous for enrolling in a new fitness program or going on an adventure.
Saturday 1/24: Mars Trine Saturn (0:06 AM), Venus Opposition Saturn (0:16 AM), Venus Sextile Mars (1:05 AM)
Our energy is very structured today. Excellent for any project requiring seriousness, efficiency and persistence. Limiting circumstances are a blessing in disguise. Our inner resources further our ambitions. Whatever loneliness or lack of support we may have felt becomes more obvious today. We may have to re-evaluate the financial value we place on our work and to be clear on what works and what doesn’t in our relationships. Our realizations enable us to either re-create an existing bond by making it more balanced or to meet someone new whose power matches ours.
Sunday 1/25: Solar Eclipse (11:55 PM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph.
Monday 1/26: Mercury Sextile Venus (3:31 PM), Mercury Conjunct Mars (10:11 PM)

We can get much done today with honesty, integrity and efficiency. It is easy to take initiatives and to launch new projects that will prove successful in the long-run.
Saturday 1/31: Mercury turns direct (11:11 PM)
There could be some chaos today where transportation and communication are concerned. Papers, keys could get lost as well as luggage or tickets. Vehicles could be uncooperative. Miscommunication could occur or messages get erased before we had a chance to listen to them. Tomorrow everything will get back in order.
Wishing you all the best.
In Loving Light.
