With a degree in neuroscience and art history from UCLA, Rose Theodora is an expert when it comes to color therapy and astrology. Each month, she'll be sharing astrological insights for your sign, as well as the beauty products you should be using. Consider these your personal beauty horoscopes.
2020: a new year. This year, you'll need extra hydration now that we're entirely in Capricorn territory (Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter), the sign that rules skin, hair, and nails. We're moving into Aquarius later this month, celebrating your unique attributes and a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer on January 10.
January 1 + 2: Mercury and Jupiter align in Capricorn. Your mind and vision for the future are aligning harmoniously so that you can speak about it and share it with others.
January 3: Mars moves into Sagittarius. Impulsive, spontaneously led, positive, freedom-seeking vibes. Think silver, glitter, fuschia, sparkles.
January 10: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer. A continuation from the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn two weeks ago on December 26, only an entirely different tone and sentiment. The nourishing, gentle Moon in Cancer will be opposed by some hard-edged, no-room-for-anything-but-self-control Pluto, Saturn, Sun, and Mercury in Capricorn. Detox and renew your sensitive skin.
January 10: Uranus Direct. A rebel in action! You want to express your uniqueness; you're less patient for B.S. and ready to create something entirely new. Change up your makeup or hair color, opt for a refreshing, bright tones.
January 11: Mercury aligns to Sun, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn: Today you'll find closure to a decision that's been weighing on you. All communication is final, so be mindful.
January 12: Pluto and Saturn align in Capricorn: You're transforming your darkest nature into a more mature, realized, empowered person. You'll need a detox mask today and lots of deep breathing.
January 13: Venus moves into Pisces. Empathic, patient, poetic, romantic, kind. Your skin will be more hydrated, but also need more water and eye drops to replenish tears (happy one,s too!). For makeup, opt for a high gloss, glitter eyes, and iridescent shimmer.
January 16: Mercury moves into Aquarius. Intellectual, friendly, up for anything, but stuck on your ideas about what's innovative.
January 20: Officially Aquarius season! It's that time of year, when expressing your unique attributes is not only fun, but vital. Accentuate your strongest feature with makeup this season. Try a bright blue eyeliner, or a sultry plum or nude lip.
January 24: New Moon in Aquarius. This will allow you to break free from stagnancy, but how you navigate the intensity and unpredictability is utterly essential.
For your New Year horoscope, remember to read for both your rising and sun signs.
