Early January is the perfect time to put the finishing touches on a joint project, dear Sagittarius. Dive in with a partner and get ready to launch your brainchild into the world.
Remember that some of us could be receiving eclipse news around this time, so if you have a planet or personal point at 16° (or 17°) of Cancer or of a water or earth sign–the same as the eclipse degree for the lunar eclipse coming at the end of January–keep watchful for news.
With all planets in direct motion beginning with Uranus’ return to regular orbit on January 2nd, you can safely launch projects which are dear to your heart, personally meaningful, or which you are directly involved in. Wrap up an leftover tasks or errands from last year and prepare to move on to fresher, more exciting pursuits in the coming year.
Recall that a retrograde planet is considered to be in a weakened state, and that we spend far more time with at least one planet (if not more) retrograde than with all of them direct. When they are all direct often the window isn’t this big.
Take advantage and make your most important initiations during the new moons mid January and mid February, and roll out new projects and partnerships at the full moon at the end of January and the beginning of March.

Mars moves in to Scorpio on the 18th, signaling time for rest and retreat, dear Scorpio. You’ve just been through a years-long Saturn transit and you’re ready to take a break. The next seven weeks provide the perfect opportunity.

On the 19th Mercury begins delivering his news, first from Neptune in your 3rd House of travel, writing, and communication, then later on the 24th from Pluto when they meet up in your 1st House.
If you have to give a talk or presentation, or make an announcement, do it on the 24th when your words will carry the weight of authority.
Take charge of your life in 2018.
Near the 25th a social benefactor could be of assistance to you, then on the 28th Mercury brings you one last unexpected surprise from Uranus in your home and family sector, just before he moves on to Capricorn to attend to your finances.

This eclipse may not affect fiery Sagittarius much, though you’ll want to check your sidereal natal chart for planets or personal points at 16° or 17° Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio, Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo to see if you’ll be directly affected.
