There’s an unusual push-pull energy in your new Solar Return, Cancer. Saturn sits opposite your Sun in this chart of your new year pushing you towards being responsible and dedicated to the work at hand and urging you to be cautious and organized in the months ahead. At the same time, expansive and lucky Jupiter sits in a trine to your Sun urging you to adventure and to expand your vision and range of experiences. With Mars Retrograde in this new SR, you’ll want to make sure you are very careful with the first steps you take in any new action/direction. Give yourself plenty of time to finish projects, too, and you’ll more than likely be successful in whatever you attempt this year, Cancer. Times have changed.

the two superb Mercury aspects/connections to other planets are also in your new Solar Return, late Gemini, and early Cancer birth signs. The two trines suggest a year when you come up with brilliant solutions and find new ways to progress. Brain power to the max but with a twist. All pieces in this Mercury picture are in water signs, forming a Water Grand Trine. This is an extraordinary configuration and rare. Prospects for the year are also extraordinary if you choose to commit. Water signs rule emotions. And while your logical ability is heightened in the months ahead and this is an extremely creative pairing, feelings and emotions will help guide you to the truth and cannot be ignored.

You’ve got an unusual Pluto connection to your Sun in your new Solar Return, Gemini.
The aspect between these two bodies is called an inconjunct. Inconjuncts are minor aspects but always bring a bit more stress to health and job matters. This one won’t knock you off your horse but does alert you to be open to changes and making adjustments in your thinking and plans in the months ahead.
Having a new Moon around your birthday sets up a stellar year to start new projects in your life and times. Mars is in Aquarius in this new SR suggesting a good year to work with friends and to follow an independent course of action where possible.

The two Neptune squares in the Skywatch today become part of your new Solar Return, Gemini.
That means you’ve got to stick to the facts this year and not let your imagination whitewash over logic and reality. Strange sleep and dreams come with Neptune’s touch along with a tendency to want to escape from facing important duties and responsibilities.
Get out in nature when you feel confused in the months ahead. Also helpful is finding a spiritual guide or group to help you stay centered. Loving Venus is in sensitive Cancer in this chart of your new year. She sits opposite Pluto suggesting a year when you either find a powerful love or can lose it due to an uncompromising attitude.
Lots of challenges ahead, Gemini. Get outside advice on anything confusing or complicated. Stick to the truth, and you’ll likely escape most of the difficult situations without any major losses.
