Jyotish Horoscopes for the Waning Moon Cycle {January 4th to 20th}


Author’s Note: Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based, and also intuitive science, has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, Jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light—within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. The meanings, implications, and purpose of jyotish is therefore different, as are the details used for prediction and the indications given below.

Jyotish Horoscopes for the Waning Moon Cycle {January 4th to 20th}

Capricorn takes the center stage during this waning Moon cycle as three planets converge in this sign of hard work and career oriented pursuits. Mercury and Venus in Capricorn bring creativity and communication, while Sun offers new opportunities to shine and be seen once it transits into Capricorn on the 14th. Rahu, Jupiter and Saturn offer their drishti here as well, heightening the need for a structured expansion, while urging us to pay close attention to balance, in order to ward off burn out.

New Moon is in Capricorn in fact on the 20th, which illuminates the themes of this cycle, while ushering us forward into an even more expansive phase in the next cycle.

*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your “Western Sign” as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.

Aries: Creativity is on the rise in your career house. Listen to your creative urges and get noticed. Now is the time to be seen, make the right connections, and up level your offerings. It will take a structured, bold approach, as well as your consistent effort, but in the end it will be well worth your bold action steps. In order to hold the abundance, you will need to expand your life container. Use innovation and your entrepreneurial spirit to get the job done. Do things differently in order to get different results.

Taurus: Be creative and get nourished by your creative communications. Let your relationships help you with your career and dharma, but ask for support and guidance if necessary. Don’t waste this powerful time! Put all your efforts into a focused and action oriented agenda in order to advance your career and dharma. You are able to vastly upgrade your self and your offerings in the coming weeks. Work it.

Gemini: Your appetite increases for greater nourishment. Cravings for life, greater comfort and support deepen. Yet you question the how’s and the why’s simultaneously. Don’t get lost in the mental body, the past, the old stories. Use these questions to provoke transformation and change instead. You must upgrade your inner structures in order to hold and contain the new nourishment. You can no longer eat bad food, bad relationships, or let your your bad habits win. Step into the new you. Your dharma is waiting.

Cancer: Relationships are pulling you in and expanding your frequencies. Let the love in and let it flow through you. Let it be an offering to your self and then back out as an offering to others. All love flows to the self. Let it transform you. Simultaneously be courageous with your passionate self and work on cutting out the old, tired and painful past. You are restructuring your heart and head right now. Trust the process.

Leo: Your passion increases, though it may rear itself as anger at times. Diving beneath the anger will be beneficial for deepening your awareness about your true needs for comfort, nourishment and support. When you get angry at someone else, when it feels like you are being attacked, ask your self what you really need—for safety, security, support and comfort. Self care will help you fill your inner container with what truly nourishes you. Like energy, attracts like energy, so get comfortable with the comfort. Rely on your intuitive gut wisdom for guidance.

Virgo: Let intuition strengthen through your creative acts. Let creative actions strengthen your intuition. This is a time of radical integration of your polarities, your separateness. Challenges arrive with self trust and deeply honoring your needs. This process will test you and requires that you clean up some very old, bad habits. It will test your courage; a theme for you over the next two years. Let go of what isn’t working for you and your new and improved life. Your gut has a lot of creativity to share with you right now. Listen up!

Libra: Nourishment, comfort and support are your main themes for the next few years. Right now you are learning how to care for yourself and let your creativity serve you in more meaningful ways. Let heart centered creativity inspire your offerings to the world; what you share and how you share it. This will take courage but will be worth your efforts. Call upon wisdom from your past to guide you, but rely on intuitive gut wisdom for the final answers.

Scorpio: Get creative and work with your hands in new and different ways. Communication of all sorts are beneficial right now. Connect, create and generate from your passionate heart. Let your heart wisdom inspire ingenuity and your entrepreneurial spirit. You will need some place to put all the surplus you create. Now is the time to upgrade your inner vessel. Be diligent, strategic and structured as you expand and re-invent your self. Go for bold balance.

Sagittarius: Creative nourishment is very important right now. Get creative about increase. Increasing your creativity will help create an increase with nourishing flow, including your income. The desire is there, which is step number one, but you must take courageous and effective action steps as well. It will take some ingenuity and thinking outside the box, as well as working with your creative intelligence and follow through. Don’t neglect your self care needs—including retreat and meditation—as this will feed your creative impulses.

Capricorn: Shakti is flowing in and around you at high intensity levels. Your voracious appetite for life increases, as well as your desires to be fed and well nourished by life and others. The only way to fully be nourished is if you can hold, digest, and assimilate the nourishment you consume. Let you gut wisdom and its intuitive intelligence, tell you what you really need. Be bold in your dharmic endeavors and think outside the box in order to expand your life container.

Aquarius: Retreat and relaxation may be just what you need to get the creative juices flowing. Meditate, honor your self care needs and find space for ample pauses. It’s in the pause that you can harvest your immense creative wealth. Retracing some old steps and old experiences can help you determine what you really want and need. Turn over stones and peer into the mirror of your self for ample reflection. What do you really need for ultimate nourishment? In order to be fed more deeply, you must be willing to release and let go.

Pisces: Structuring a new life for yourself first comes from deconstructing the old structures and containers within you and your life. Your deconstruction phase continues. Now is the time to be consciously creating the exact type of containers you need in order to fill them with your new, desired abundance. How big are your vessels, your life containers? What are you holding? What are you releasing? Radically purge all that doesn’t fit in your sacred spaces.
