Mercury has stationed direct in your sign (as of early Sunday morning). Think of this as a moment of clarity.

In 2020 we have not one but two conjunctions that mark the turn of a generation, and of an era in history. On Jan. 12, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn formed their once-per-33-year conjunction.

It is difficult to have perspective or objectivity on one’s own life, particularly in the realm of feelings. Now, though, you may have a reasonable conversation with yourself about topics you may have avoided, or that you’ve never discovered.
