The Year 2014 begins with a bang. On January 1, the first supermoon, the New Moon in Capricorn welcomes us into the New Year. In fact, January will be host to two super moons; the other super moon will occur on January 30. A total of 5 supermoons occur in 2014; the first two in January and the rest in July, August and September. Supermoons occur when the Moon is closest to the earth and intensifies our feelings. The New Moon on January 1 energizes our lives and is an ideal time for new ventures and initiating new tasks. With the cosmic forces supporting you, the resolutions and wishes you make this year might just come true! On January 31, Venus goes direct, ending its retrograde journey in Capricorn. Despite the fact that Capricorn isn't the most ideal placement for the romantic Venus, the end of its retrograde journey at least brings some respite on the love front and clarity in our lives. On February 6, the mindful Mercury goes into retrograde in the sign of Pisces. The next three weeks will be of a time for introspection and thinking about where your life is headed. On April 15, the first Lunar eclipse of the year will occur in the sign of Libra, followed by a solar eclipse in Taurus on April 29.

The next Lunar eclipse will occur on October 8 in Aries. A solar eclipse will occur on October 23 in Scorpio. The transits of Jupiter, the planet of expansion, Uranus, the planet of sudden changes and Pluto, the ruler of the underworld during January, February, April and December will play an important role in transforming our lives.
