MON JAN 4.
We begin Monday morning with the Moon in Virgo trine Mercury and Pluto in Capricorn, square Venus in Sagittarius, and opposite Neptune in Pisces. There can be a lot to do as of yet, and we can be very focused on where improvements need to be made and work needs to be put in, and with the Moon square Venus in Sagittarius, the fact that we are outside of a comfort zone and on a learning journey can be emphasized. This can feel somewhat intimidating or can take some getting used to. The afternoon see’s the Moon build trines to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius as it heads closer to Libra, and this can give us a sort of second wind, or at least add optimism and determination to knuckle down and settle into this weird new world we may have entered. There may be a lot about whatever we are doing or whatever we have going on that may be completely new to us, or at least, is outside of our norm. In some ways, this can see us feeling somewhat vulnerable, as the lunar opposition that is building to Chiron would indicate. But with the Sun in pragmatic Capricorn in sextile to Neptune, there is something about it all that speaks of realizing dreams and ideals, things we may have imagined for a long time. The remainder of the Virgo lunation focuses in on making improvements, and organizational efforts. Pairing things down into manageable chunks and making alterations to routines that will be sustainable over the longterm. The Moon enters partnership oriented Libra at 9:42 PM, and with the Moon in trine to Jupiter and Saturn in experimental and unorthodox Aquarius, this can see new interpersonal/collaborative terrain entered or explored, or in the very least we can be interacting with others or the world at large in new ways. New foundations are being laid down, and we may be more open to new things or people, or unconventional scenarios or dynamics. Even if we feel a little out on a limb in certain ways, there can be much about what is transpiring that is a breath of fresh air, and opens up a new window on the world.
TUES JAN 5.
Today begins with the Moon in Libra trine Jupiter and Saturn, opposite Chiron, which places emphasis on expansive and new interpersonal terrain that represents the beginnings of new foundations. Joe Cockers “I get by with a little help from my friends” aptly captures the spirit of these configurations. We may feel out on a limb in certain ways, but the generous lunar trine to Jupiter in friendly Aquarius can highlight the importance of our connections to others when it comes to boosting our morale or helping us out of a tight jam. The Moon goes on to square the Sun in Capricorn, which can see some pressure or deadlines to achieve, so we may need to pick and choose carefully how our time is delineated. But we may be inspired to be of service to the greater good in some way under these configurations. With Juno, the relationship asteroid in trine to Chiron now, it can be easier to come into contact with others who may inadvertently be good for us and help us feel more courage in ourselves, or otherwise be a healing and expansive influence, helping us to feel more faith and optimism. There may be an odd split to navigate between our desire to relate to and connect with others and the equal need to focus on ambitions, goals, practical considerations, and achievement today and throughout the Libra lunation. The desire to fraternize, socialize and otherwise connect with others can feel at odds with whatever goals we may have set for ourselves for the time being, and this can prove somewhat distracting, especially with Mars in the most urgent degree of Aries, due to move into Taurus tomorrow afternoon. Nonetheless, we can use whatever energy is available here with Mars about to ingress into a new sign and chart area to really make some headway on our goals, as the energy will only grow stronger tomorrow, along with the feeling of urgency.
WED JAN 6.
Today see’s the Moon in Libra square the Sun, Mercury, and Pluto in ambitious Capricorn, while opposing Mars in 29 degrees Aries. This can see some breakthrough points in regards to our goals and ambitions in some way. We may be motivated inadvertently or directly by others, but it’s also possible that our personal life may have to take somewhat of a backseat temporarily in order to roll a boulder to the top of a hill. For some, these configurations can produce a sort of “now or never” feeling in regards to partnerships or social life, but it’s important to remember that anyone or anything meant to be in your life will be there, even if you have to work, and anything worth discussing will still be worth discussing in 24 hours. In the afternoon, the Moon goes on to sextile Mercury in Sagittarius, taking some of the edge of of the lunar links to Mars and Pluto, which are certainly intense and serve as a deep reserve of energy to tap into. We may be feeling more optimism about our interpersonal/creative/ and/or financial situation, and possibilities can feel more open and expansive. With Mars in 29 degrees in trine to Venus in Sagittarius, an arrow has been shot, and we are thinking in terms of the future and of distant horizons. There may be a particular goal (or person) we have in mind, and with Mars in the final degrees of Aries, we are laying down foundations and completing one phase of this journey, -the journey of retrieving our arrow. Mars enters realistic and tactile Taurus at 2:27 PM PST, conjoining Uranus, and squaring both Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Here, we have entered ground level of alien territory, and can begin navigating this new terrain with a more hands on approach. Everything about this is experimental, requiring much improvisation. The lunar link to Venus, while Mars and Venus hold hands, as this transition occurs can see some interesting alliances and connections being formed that are outside of the box or outside of our norm in one way or another. There can be something exciting and simultaneously challenging about this. In either case, the people, dynamics, and/or situations we come across during this transit can be very unique, unprecedented, and one of a kind. There’s also a great deal that is unpredictable about these configurations, and the theme of “liberation” is heavily emphasized, so people can be less inclined to be put into any kind of “box” or subscribe to any conventional “norms” under this math scape, as individualism is heavily emphasized. Late evening adds to this even more as the Moon builds an opposition to Uranus as it heads towards instinctual Scorpio. In either case, this can see some surprising interpersonal situations arise, and others can be a source of amusement, surprise, shock or bewilderment with the Moon at 29 degrees Libra late this evening.
THUR JAN 7.
This morning see’s the Moon in intense Scorpio, opposite Mars and Uranus in Taurus, and square Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. The ground is certainly shifting, along with the playing field. There can definitely be a lot of passionate energy in the atmosphere today. This could be anger, this could simply be a lot of libidinous vibes, but regardless, letting off steam, perhaps through physical endeavors, wouldn’t be a bad idea. There can be some restlessness here, and emotions can be changeable. People can definitely be flying their freak flags, even in quiet or modest ways. With the Moon squaring Jupiter and opposing Uranus, and going on to trine Neptune in the evening hours, there can be an indulgent atmosphere, and things can somewhat quiet down and lead to more reflective or solitary pursuits towards evening, or people simply being weird in private. A lot of surprising emotions can be available under these configurations, and the lunar connection to Neptune in the evening hours can perhaps see us taking a step back to sort of bask in them. There can be private revelations, and intuition and sensitivity can be heightened. We can be very impressionable to our environment, or prone to idealize people, but equally, we can be open to unusual “esp” type experiences, or waves of inspiration with plenty of creative fodder for the imagination. The lunar/Neptune/Uranus contacts in the evening can be excellent for artists and musicians. There’s also a lunar semisquare to Venus in Sagittarius that adds a dimension of love, beauty, and creativity to the mix, and we may be hungry for fresh inspiration and eager to seek it out. This ends the evening on a mellow, introverted, but pleasantly restless vibe, with some unique and impactful experiences due this weekend, perhaps mostly in private, but could involve others to a degree as well.
FRI JAN 8-SUN JAN 10 2021.
Friday see’s Mercury enter unorthodox Aquarius at 4 AM PST, placing the planet of communication and commerce in strong relation to both Jupiter and Saturn, which can see expansive and experimental communication initiatives spotlighted. This can involve a wider community outreach or even the internet in some way. Venus, the planet of love, beauty, money, and possessions, also changes signs today, moving into serious and reserved Capricorn at 7:41 AM PST. Venus shot an arrow in Sagittarius, and in Capricorn, she will climb the mountainous cliffs in order to retrieve it. In Capricorn, Venus is more risk averse, more single minded, committed, and more reserved, prudent and cautious until she knows something or someone is worth her while. Here, she is goal oriented, she knows what or who she wants, and refuses to settle for anything less, and will happily go without until something or someone ticks all her boxes. On top of these ingresses, today see’s the Moon in Scorpio sextile the Sun and Pluto in Cap, and a trine to Neptune in Pisces, and this could see some dreams brought down to reality, particularly in relation to certain goals or ambitions we may have been nurturing. There may be a focus here on bringing things down to earth from the imaginal realms and making them manifest somehow, especially with Pluto involved. There can be a tendency to really get lost in fantasy here over something or someone, but the combination of imagination and concentration can be really creatively productive, as Pluto lends an ability to really stick with something to a point of fixation, while Neptune lends the gift of imagination and creative visualization. There can be some unique “psychic experiences” or dream experiences available today. The evening see’s a lunar link to Mercury in Aquarius and Chiron in Aries, which suggests that over this weekend we can communicate a little more freely, perhaps some outside of the box notions, or things we felt were too weird to say. This also spotlights community endeavors, and the wider social network in some way, and we can be giving and receiving support from likeminded weirdos, friendships, and the community at large. Saturday the 9th see’s the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius sextile Mercury in Aquarius, trine Chiron, and sextile Jupiter and Saturn in the early part of the day. Something or someone can bolster our optimism and courage somehow, and with the Moon linking to Juno the relationship asteroid, it can be that certain others are inspiring to us in some way, and adding to our optimism and faith in the future. Sunday the 10th, see’s a mixed bag of aspects, and begins with an elusive lunar square to Neptune. It’s possible that certain things or people seem sort of out of reach for now, as there is a certain longing and dreaminess to these aspects. Later the Moon goes on to conjoin Venus in Capricorn, and trine Mars, and something regarding the passions, or relations to others can begin to feel more concrete. This closes out Sunday on a pretty sweet note, and can see next week get off to a rather interesting and passionately motivated start.
