Look to the year ahead with courage and determination to navigate the path of your growth. This is a potent time in your life, and you have the opportunity to develop in leaps and bounds, should you wish to. Recognize the person you are becoming, and give yourself permission to get there and to take up space in the world. You are wiser and stronger than you know, and your qualities are valued.

Uranus entered Taurus just over a week ago. Today, it receives a square from the asteroid Psyche in Aquarius. If you’re feeling a little stuck regarding some facet of your psychological functioning, you might have an urge to try and do something about it today. The tricky thing is, Psyche often refers to the sensation that nothing can be done to heal a wound — but it’s a lie: any problem or wound can be solved or healed, given the appropriate tools, assistance, perspective and time. Likewise, the signs Taurus and Aquarius both have a penchant for solidifying patterns. So Uranus is the wild card here — the factor that could kick you into gear on getting unstuck. Just be aware that this will likely involve being willing to move away from a place of familiarity, or even comfort, to try a new tack.
Luckily you have a sextile between retrograde Mercury in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn on your side. If you can get the gears cranking, this aspect offers an opportunity to investigate a puzzle or mystery (such as yourself, as described above). Chances are the clues will lead you into the past for some new level of understanding; but not to stay there. Come back to the surface and see who you can share your new insights with (just double-check the email address or phone number before you share).
