We are heading into the Piscean dreamtime of the year. Emotional Venus is already in sensitive, imaginative Pisces, mental Mercury enters Pisces on Saturday and the Sun, source of our energy, follows on Sunday. We drift into the mists.
On a bad day, this Piscean fog can provide a truly confusing camouflage of uncertainty or misinformation. Career information can be hard to find. People can get lost in their fear of what could happen or their magical thinking for quick solutions. And last week’s school shooting, right before the solar eclipse in communal Aquarius, brought our attention to a shared agony and gives a perfect projection place for the worst fears and most simplistic responses.
But this Piscean mist reminds us, that like our streams, lakes, and underground water systems, everything is connected, no problem is simple; pollution of mind, body, or soul in one part of the country will seep into the rest. It can also instigate a certain passivity, a feeling that there’s nothing we can do, everything is inevitable, which is a Piscean shadow problem. It can be easy to slip into victim mindset with many planets in Pisces and as we look around at our present political situation. But it does not further to hand over the reins of our life. Or our country.
If we need time out, it can further to find a safe place to be sensitive, dip into a wonderful escapist movie that talks about a magical other land or walk in the woods and commune with the trees and leave humankind behind for a minute. When we are ready to see clearly and are willing to check our facts and perceptions, and accept the situation we face may be incredibly complex but still solvable, we can use the mists to reach into the fertile loam of our psyche and sprout a vision for the year ahead.
As the crocus begin to stir, so can our hopes for the new year. Let’s dream it different, then make plans between now and March 6, when Mercury and Venus both head into rebellious and energized Aries and give us the energy to turn dreams into action. Mid-March could be a volatile combustion engine, but if we have a plan, we can make it work for us.
Mercury retrogrades March 22, two days after the Sun enters Aries. If we know where we’re going because we dreamed the map clearly now, we can still put that rocket fuel into productive action. If we don’t, the crosscurrents could leave us way off course, with strong emotional responses and no clear path.
All this Piscean energy can leave us feeling permeable and make it easy to catch passing germs, so for the next few weeks let’s keep our immune system strong by refilling the wells and resting when we need to.
This weekend we may need to process and let the feelings flow. Pull out the art supplies. Make room for a spiritual moment. Take advantage of an opportunity to let go of old anger as active Mars squares Neptune. If we get too excited, the confusion may seem to thicken. And let’s keep our eyes open and critical thinking intact; we could be intentionally deceived, become suddenly aware of a deception, or get stuck coping with another person’s delusion. All of which could have some interesting political ramifications. Step away from bamboozlement, and watch out for sloppy weather or sloppy thinking.
On Sunday, the Sun joins Venus and Mercury in emotional Pisces while the Moon moves into decisive Aries, bringing a more proactive and responsive attitude, though maybe we get on our high horse too easily.
Monday our concerns deepen as Mercury semi-squares Pluto, an aspect that can really tweak our minds. Worries about recent news or some more personal concern can raise anxiety, even paranoia, and call for the most grounded and levelheaded thinking. Let’s respect and investigate our concerns but not get stuck in them. Work on a steady action plan instead. Honor feelings, but confirm all facts or suspicions. And if someone starts to rant, we can respect their feelings while sifting carefully through what they say.
On Wednesday an earthy Taurus Moon helps us get more cozy in our body. Comfort foods beckon. Our hearts are extra tender as Venus conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, but our thinking may stabilize as Mercury sextiles Saturn. We may want to open our hearts, but could use reassurance of the trustworthiness of the people around us in order to feel safe enough to stay close and open.
Friday, February 16: We may feel all soft and squishy, vulnerable and inward, wanting to curl safely under the covers as the Pisces Moon conjuncts Venus and Neptune, aware of the recent societal wounds as Mercury quincunx Chiron, but the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius tell us that’s not what we should be doing, we should be going out and fixing things, saving the world. Find a balance between the two. Be honest and find a way through. Tonight, we may prefer to be in a place where we feel safe to drop our efficiency and escape wisely.
Mercury quincunx Chiron 12:25 AM, Moon sex tile Saturn 8:57 AM, Moon conjunct Venus 10:35 AM, Moon square Mars 10:11 PM, Moon conjunct Neptune 10:30 PM.
Saturday, February 17: Mars square Neptune lowers our energy level, increases our ability to dream, may increase our sense of vulnerability, but also gives us the capacity to forgive. But let’s be careful not to feel overwhelmed or step into victim mindset. Common sense, a walk in the woods, simple chores can help us find ballast underneath some watery emotions. We want to feel close, to ourselves, our purpose, spirit, or to some interesting other person.
Mars square Neptune 5:20 AM, Sun conjunct Mercury 6:27 AM, Moon sex tile Pluto 11:49 AM, Moon trine Jupiter 4:13 PM, Mercury enters Pisces 10:27 PM.
Sunday, February 18: Enough with the closeness, the Moon goes into Aries and our independence asserts itself again. Balance intimacy and honesty, closeness and self-direction. Our physical energy may be at low ebb as the Sun enters Pisces, know we can become enthusiastic or impassioned when we tackle something close to our hearts.
Moon enters Aries 6:04 AM, the Sun enters Pisces 11:17 AM Moon square Saturn 6:15 PM.
Monday, February 19: The mood can be erratic and edgy this morning, sticking to schedules can make us grumpy as Venus semi-squares Uranus under an Aries Moon. Feel the urge to act out, to be erratic or unexpected just because, avoid twitter, and nurture impulse control. Use this restlessness to break routine and find an improvement, but not just be irascible. Moods dip tonight as the Moon squares Pluto; be honest about some apparent danger, but don’t get stuck there.
Venus semi-square Uranus 3:05 AM, Moon trine Mars 9:18 AM, Moon square Pluto 7:46 PM.
Tuesday, February 20: Erratic and unexpected events overnight or earlier this morning need to be may need to be dealt with before we get onto an otherwise productive day. People may speak from their anxiety rather than from their strength as Mercury semi-squares Pluto. The Taurus Moon steadies the mood this afternoon and says familiar comforts and proof of stability and presence are good medicine.
Moon conjunct Uranus 5:11 AM, Moon enters Taurus 5:16 PM, Moon sex tile Sun 5:16 PM, Mercury semi-square Pluto 9:05 PM, Moon sextile Mercury 11:12 PM.
Wednesday, February 21: Women may take a political lead or provide a different vision. We want a little magic around our creative process and our relationships this morning. We’d love to feel that fairy dust could be sprinkled at any moment. Respect that twinkle in one another’s eyes. Just watch that it doesn’t stray into delusion. A common-sense Mercury-Saturn sextile can stabilize thinking and help us put that magic into sane and productive action.
Moon trine Saturn 1:13 AM, Venus conjunct Neptune 12:41 PM, Moon sextile Neptune 1:19 PM, Moon sextile Venus 2:23 PM, Mercury sextile Saturn 2:23 PM.
Thursday, February 22: Feelings are working overtime, hopes and fears have more air-time in our minds than does logic, so it helps to both give this imagination a place to go to stay out of trouble, and use practical, earthy chores and traditional systems to stay grounded. Gently question any assumption. Tonight, the conversation magnifies as the Moon enters verbal Gemini.
Moon trine Pluto 1:30 AM, Moon sextile Jupiter 5:45 AM, Moon enters Gemini 6:07 PM.

What would you do for love? Fourteen years ago, my father tried very hard not to die on Valentine’s Day, made it an extra day, romantic that he was, as his last bittersweet gift to the family. Valentine’s Day falls in the middle of flu season, in the ragtag end of winter when we know that not much but our heart chakras keep our world alight. This year a haunting Venus-Pluto aspect makes it even more poignant, so let’s explore what radical and simple acts of love and compassion we can share.
Valentine’s Day falls under Aquarius, not consider the most emotionally intimate signs. This Aquarian holiday speaks more of the theory of love then it does of romance. At its worst, Valentine’s Day leaves an image of what we “should” (a word that haunts Aquarius) feel, and can make us cynical about our love life. At its best, this holiday encourages us to appreciate our international, global community and love all humankind.
This year, Valentine’s Day falls between the lunar eclipse on January 31 and a partial solar eclipse on February 15 (only visible in the southern hemisphere). Eclipses tend to clean house. Under that bittersweet Venus-Pluto transits, our hearts may be reviewing recent personal and political history, and we may not necessarily feel loved by the cosmos. The time between the lunar eclipse on January 31 and this new Moon has pared away dead wood. Many people have reported illusions bursting with some nasty wake-up calls, or an end to a dream that sounded good but was not really in line with our soul’s purpose. So, these eclipses clear the ground and after this new Moon encourage us to build, not on what we thought we wanted, but where we really feel energized.
But first, now through early next week we need to speak consciously and write thoughtfully as the Sun semi-squares Saturn on Friday and Mercury semi-squares Saturn and squares Jupiter. The planets loan us a certain tough-mindedness, we could feel highly opinionated, tactless or gruff, which could complicate Valentines plans, but give us the mental toughness to finish what we start.
Our minds might be tough, and our communication style of bid edgy, but our feelings can get all squishy as Venus enters sensitive Pisces, which can bring a flood of feelings, and makes us more sentimental. Be kind to all hearts. Expect a lot of political commentary and enjoy debate, but assess carefully where an argument can be productive and where it’s just a waste of time. And if depression whispers, watch the nature of thought and direct the mind away from cataloguing problems and towards problem-solving.
We can get a lot done this weekend, if we put our tough minds to it- but let’s watch control issues, stay away from people who tend to be abusive and check in on people who have to deal with that heaviness. Somewhere in our lives we may face the illusion that we are stuck, but it is more likely that our head is under a cliff and we needed take a step sideways to have room to move.
Towards Valentine’s Day it will be important to review the warm spots in our life. If we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with someone we love, review first meetings and romantic moments. If we’re celebrating by ourselves or with platonic, it furthers to review the moments we felt loved by the universe, when we felt healthy and joyful, however hard or easy those may be to remember at the moment. Remember what we’d do for love, when we made someone’s day and helped them feel loved by their world. Bring these moments alive and close and sing our love song to the world.
Friday, February 9: We could feel a little old and achy this morning or want to grumble about our responsibilities as the Sun semi-squares Saturn. Meetings and bureaucratic wrangling can feel like more work than usual, but can also be really productive. Look for a particularly important communiqué around noon time. Our attention drifts early this afternoon, we’re ready to take off for the weekend and our work focus can dissipate quickly. Playfulness furthers tonight, find something to laugh about in this weary world.
Sun semi-squares Saturn, Moon square Neptune, Moon sextile Mercury.
Saturday, February 10: If the weather lets us, it will be good to get out and meander. It furthers us to be spontaneous, to step out without knowing where we will end up, and discover new possibilities. As Venus enters Pisces this afternoon and the Sun squares Jupiter, we move more into our heart. But watch unexpected expenses; make sure an item is needed more than the resources. It may be hard to let go of ongoing work concerns as the Moon enters Capricorn tonight. Watch a tendency to manipulate one another, even unintentionally, in response to some existential angst.
Moon sextile Sun 2:14 AM, Moon trine Uranus 9:37 AM, Moon square Chiron 11:42 AM, Venus enters Pisces 4:19 PM, Sun square Jupiter 4:20 PM Moon enters Capricorn 7:20 PM. Moon sextiles Venus 7:42 PM.
Sunday, February 11: Why so serious? The industrious Capricorn Moon conjuncts serious Saturn this morning and conjuncts Pluto tomorrow, making it easier to look at all the problems than find solutions. We may be painfully aware of an imbalance of power in our lives or constructs that are not working for us, and will feel better if we take a step to address this. Capricorn says “don’t get mad (or sad), get efficient”.
Moon conjunct Saturn 7:16 AM, Moon sextile Neptune 10:08 PM.
Monday, February 12: A problem is very apparent this morning. A deadline looms or a situation wants to come to a crunch as Mercury semi-squares Saturn and the Moon conjuncts Pluto. Do not perseverate on the worry; instead, organize, construct, and do the work. People get flustered easily but will respond well to a realistic and hopeful plan.
Mercury semi-sextile Pluto 9:24 AM, Moon conjunct Pluto 12:21 PM, Moon sextile Jupiter 4:41 PM, Mercury semi-square Saturn 8:46 PM, Moon square Uranus 10:43 PM.
Tuesday, February 13: The conversation opens up; we feel our idealism growing and can tune into the sense of community enthusiasm, if we let ourselves, as the Moon enters Aquarius and Mercury squares Jupiter. Have a great conversation, but don’t say too much and give away important information for bargaining, nor take on an obligation unprepared. Brainstorm great ideas to make the world feel more spacious and ruminate on what has worked before.
Moon enters Aquarius 8:11 AM, Mercury square Jupiter 3:38 PM, Sun sextile Uranus 7:22 PM.
Wednesday, February 14: What are we willing to do for love? Radical acts of compassion further with the Sun and Moon in Aquarius. It will be hard to live up to any ideal of Valentine’s Day as Venus semi-squares Pluto and stirs poignant undertones, but we can enjoy any abundance of the heart, the more idiosyncratic and thoughtful, the better. Give out Valentines to the whole community, just like we did in second grade. Go to a fundraiser. Feed the homeless. Attend a speed dating event. Relive delicious moments of the past. Perform a Metta meditation and love all sentient beings.
Moon sextile Mars 7:29 AM, Venus semi-square Pluto 8:58 PM, Sun semi sextile Chiron 10:28 PM.
Thursday, February 15: What chapter do we need to end, what are we ready to begin? We may need to let go of a theory, a fantasy, and unproductive path and make room for fresh dreams and new possibilities on this new Moon eclipse, as Mercury sextiles Uranus. We grow more sensitive, personal, and sentimental tonight as the Moon joins Venus in Pisces.
Moon semi-square Saturn 2:27 AM, Moon square Jupiter for 50 9 AM, Mercury sextile Uranus 8:07 AM, Moon sextile Uranus 10:40 AM, Moon conjunct Mercury 11:06 AM, new Moon, solar eclipse 2:05 PM. Venus sextiles Saturn 4:19 PM, Moon enters Pisces at 7:41 PM

Happy Groundhog Day, otherwise known as Candlemas, Imbolc, feast of the Rowan tree; it is the turning point of winter. We are halfway through. Persephone now mythically starts her walk towards the upper worlds. The onions begin to sprout in our kitchen drawers. It’s a traditional day to take animal auguries, so let’s notice what birds and bees we observe and wonder what their symbolic significance might be to our lives. Let life be a dialogue with our natural world. That in itself can be rich, but if nothing else, it may help us take a different perspective or let our subconscious give us fresh suggestions.
Though the days grow longer, we’re still smack dab in the middle of winter. What in this contemplative quiet time do we want to begin to sprout? We can begin to grow new connections as Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all now in more extroverted signs. Our social life can bustle, and people may be unusually receptive to our overtures. It can be hard to sit still as Mars in Sagittarius calls us outside or on road. We can be tactlessly honest but in an uncharged and straightforward manner that can help us tackle awkward conversations. Though tempers rise quickly if we think we’re being lied to or the truth is intentionally obfuscated.
It’s not that we won’t love time by ourselves right now, introverts will be introverts, but we may be called to interact more and may just find we’re able to do so.
The weekend starts out on a more sedate and serious note as under a Virgo Moon and as Venus forms minor but uncomfortable aspects to Pluto and Saturn. We may feel a weight on our heart, or just feel like our workload or unhappiness with world events cramps our style. Some creative or aesthetic decision needs extra finagling, but rewards us for putting in the work and taking the time to make good decisions.
Because this slight psychic discomfort can niggle at us all weekend and throw gravel on the path of true love, it’s important to practice good relationship skills to ease our interactions and keep the home front on an even keel. Be patient with one another and don’t let the little things get in the way of real feeling.
Saturday starts off industrious if a bit a little cranky, but ends on a more sociable and romantic note as the Moon enters Libra and Venus squares Jupiter. Pay attention to the hearth fires of all friendships tonight and don’t take them for granted. A little simple appreciation and care that our beloveds are happy and comfortable will be enough to keep the fires warm. Monday evening the Moon enters Scorpio, this echoes the stubbornness of all the planets in Aquarius, all fixed signs, so we may gird our loins and start gritting our teeth.
The rest of the week precedes with stubbornness and ingenuity. Opinions can remain fixed, it’s not a week to try to persuade anybody of a far-flung idea, and we may need to take a stand ourselves. But we can easily engage our team to follow through on what we’ve already agreed upon, and access ingenuity to get to the bottom of problems.
(All times are MST)
Friday, February 2: The mood is specific and a bit cranky this morning, we have the may have high expectations for ourselves but low energy to achieve it, or a need to feed our spirit some other way as the Moon opposes Neptune midday. Lunchtime may bring a wave of sleepiness. Vague emotional discontent stirs in response to headlines, or in awareness of a loss or some other thing that triggers our need for self-sufficiency as Venus forms minor but irritating aspects to both Pluto and Saturn. Familiar comforts help, and help us remember what does feed our soul as the Moon trines Pluto late tonight.
Moon opposes Neptune 9:28 AM, Venus semi-sextile Pluto 2:36 PM, Venus semi-square Saturn 5:36 PM, Moon trine Pluto 9:23 PM.
Saturday, February 3: This is the astrological cross-quarter day, when the Sun is halfway through Aquarius sign. Sleep in this morning, because overnight irritability can leave odd traces in our dreams or leave us out of sorts, or feeling we just have to get to some project that may not be our beloved’s priority as Mars semi-squares Pluto and Mercury approaches a sextile with Mars.
Be gentle health issues around inflammation or infections as Mars semi-squares Pluto, take good care of one another. If familiar problems return this afternoon, let’s not try we’ve always tried; instead, get creative ior use the irascible energy just to get chores accomplished. The energy sweetens after tea time as the Moon enters Libra. We want connection tonight but romantic expectations can be problematic as Venus squares Jupiter; drop what is unimportant and tend to beloveds of all sorts.
Moon sextile Jupiter 12:06 AM, Mars semi-square Pluto 5:45 AM, Mercury semi-sextile Mars 8:57 AM, Mercury semi-sextile Saturn 10:50 AM, Mars semi-sextile Saturn 2:35 PM, Moon enters Libra 2:47 PM Venus square Jupiter 10:06 PM, Moon square Saturn 11:49 PM.
Sunday, February 4: We may long for beauty in the world and feel like we can love our fellow humans, but could get a tad more cynical as we compare our ideals to what we actually have. Be honest, but work towards the ideal. It’s not a good day to push ourselves beyond our physical comfort, but a great day to push ourselves creatively and invoke beauty and balance in our lives. Nurture the connections that feed us as the Moon trines the Sun in sociable air signs.
Moon sextile Mars 12:11 AM, Moon trine Mercury 1:29 AM, Moon trine Sun 7:35 PM.
Monday, February 5: An early morning wave of inadequacy can leave us out of sorts or ready to tackle a specific problem this morning as the Moon squares Pluto. Good connections midmorning as the Moon trines Venus can shift quickly and either change in nature, or together helped create change, as the Moon opposes Uranus afternoon. Don’t buy into a low-level worry, pull back to personal business tonight as the Moon enters Scorpio and calls us to do our own homework.
Moon square Pluto 2:22 AM, Moon trine Venus 8:32 AM, Moon opposes Uranus 11:45 AM, Moon enters Scorpio 8:56 PM.
Tuesday, February 6: We may have honestly mixed feelings, a real approach-avoidance conflict around being seen and interacting. Peoples actions and statements may be at odds with one another and they won’t see the paradox as we spout our philosophies, but act on more primitive responses. Out of this can come great art, and if we are more honest with ourselves some great self-understanding and fresh emotional intimacy if we can accept each other as we truly are while Venus sextiles Uranus. Women can catalyze interesting cultural changes.
Moon sextile Saturn 7:05 AM, Moon square Mercury 4:45 PM, Venus sextile Uranus 6:37 PM, Moon trine Neptune 9:36 PM.
Wednesday, February 7:: An old worry can bother us this morning as Mercury semi-squares Chiron, and Venus semi-sextiles Chiron. Don’t let the mind perseverate on well-worn tracts, search for options instead. Late afternoon the mood are people are cautiously optimistic and generous where it feels safe to be so as the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio. Important research or investigation can expand our thoughts and give us some emotional satisfaction. Some people may feel better if they offload their concerns by blaming others, but this would be only temporary stress relief and will actually make the situation worse.
Mercury semi-square Chiron 1:26 AM, Moon square Sun 8:53 AM, Moon sextile Pluto 11:15 AM, Venus semi-sextile Chiron 1:26 PM, Moon conjunct Jupiter 2:56 PM.
Thursday, February 8: Pay attention through a fuzzyheaded patch as Mercury semi-sextiles Neptune this morning. People’s favorite delusions can distort clarity. Optimism, and the need for it under duress, both increase as the Moon enters upbeat Sagittarius this morning while the Sun semi-sextiles Pluto. Some discomfort of power or brush with mortality needs honest positivity to overcome. A mischievous dark twist to our humor can help tight corners; if we can see the humor in it, the monsters stay away.
Moon square Venus 12:16 AM, Mercury semi sextile Neptune 5:36 AM, Moon enters Sagittarius 6:53 AM, Sun semi-sextile Pluto 2:28 PM, Moon conjunct Mars 11:39 PM.

The planets ask us interesting questions this week. Our teams call us, people need us, our civic duty knocks on the door, and yet we may still have lingering personal work percolating throughout this winter, and may be enduring, recovering from, or avoiding the flu. So, how do we balance our needs the needs of our community, how do we practice good self-care while we honor our responsibilities. And how do we keep life interesting. This week’s full Moon in Leo, lunar eclipse, wants to know.
Both as a person and country, if we ‘re too self-centered, the world becomes a worse place and our world and community suffers. If we overextend ourselves and put other’s needs ahead of our own- all the time- we don’t get our work done and lose the resilience we need to be of service.
The Sun and Venus now in expansive, political Aquarius, joined by Mercury on Wednesday, help us see the bigger picture. They encourage us to think about our friends, our civic duty, and on a more metaphysical level, they encourage us to dwell on the interconnectedness of all sentient beings. They underlined the fact that if one population gets the flu, the chances are, so will all the others.
Now the shadow side of Aquarius can abstract us from our feelings, talk ourselves into believing what we should feel rather than what we do. Let’s make sure we’re being honest with ourselves. Motivating Mars enters outspoken, outgoing, restless Sagittarius this morning and can help us speak up, and then let go of, something that’s been weighing heavily on our hearts.
Venus and Mars are both now in outgoing signs. We may be able to let go of something that’s been holding on to on us, a heaviness we’ve been carrying for the last few months, but may suddenly feel the need to travel in mind, body, or spirit. We may want to get out of Dodge and talk with people we’ve never spoken to before, or take a long hike, for or learn something brand-new rather than chew on old problems.
The weekend begins under a talkative Gemini moon. We may need to change our minds or deal with unsettling information towards Sunday as Mercury squares Uranus, but let’s be careful to make appropriate changes, rather than throw the baby out the bathwater, or just feel anxious because our nerves are running extra voltage.
A more introspective Cancer Moon on Sunday night through early Tuesday encourages us to take care of our home life and our health and nurture connection. The Leo Moon lunar eclipse early on Wednesday may give us a wake-up call, we just need to watch a tendency to create emotional drama for the fun of it. Look for a constructive way to live around it in balance life and create more balanced world.
Friday, January 26: Something twinges our feelings Venus semi-squares Chiron but we’re tempted to get away from it or become distracted instead of work it out as Mars enter Sagittarius. Our curiosity grows, a bit of cabin fever calls for a break in routine. Politics as usual may really tick us off. By this afternoon, when the Moon enters Gemini, were ready for a new conversation. Put a five-minute lead on snappy remarks or sudden decisions Tempers spark quickly around noon as the Moon opposes Mars, but fresh conversation unfolds tonight.
Venus semi-square Chiron 3:26 AM, Mars enters Sagittarius 5:56 AM, the Moon enters Gemini 10:39 AM, the Moon opposes Mars 10:52 AM.
Saturday, January 27: We may notice growing tension or sense of urgency as Mercury moves into the square with Uranus, but at least we can talk about today as the Gemini Moon trines the Sun and Venus. Negotiate, let’s come to understand the other person’s perspective and share ours. Keep minds open and be ready to make a change, move, or consider options. We may idealize a situation and but that can help us make the changes, just be ready to reassess the situation in a few days as Venus semi sex-tiles Neptune. Make tonight magical.
Moon trine’s Venus 6:31 AM, Moon squares Neptune 7:41 AM, Venus semi-sextile Neptune 8:21 PM.
Sunday, January 28: Keep any snap decisions tentative, though be ready to reconsider. But it’s a good time to try something you’ve never tried before as Mercury squares Uranus. Accidents are more likely in the morning; we may feel safer late this afternoon as the Moon enters cancer, but also less experimental and agreeable. New seriousness grows tonight at the Moon opposes Saturn and can leave us feeling tired as the weekend ends, but also encourages us to think about our plans for the following week.
Mercury square Uranus 12:08 AM, Moon sextile Uranus 3:38 AM, Mercury sextiles Chiron 11:49 AM, Moon enters Cancer 11:57 AM, Moon opposes Saturn 7:14 PM.
Monday, January 29: It can be hard to get to work this morning, pulled between unfinished personal business and work, so go gently on people and let them arrive, or expect crankiness. Our imagination is strong though, so if we have creative work to do, this morning works as the Moon moves into a trine with Neptune and Jupiter. Check communication as if it’s Mercury retrograde today, as Mercury forms a mild but confusing semi-squares Neptune. Check to make sure messages are received and intentions are heard. Track carefully things that need to be remembered because we’re all feeling a little fuzzyheaded as the day progresses.
Moon trine Neptune 8:18 AM, Moon opposed Pluto 7:34 PM, Mercury semi-square Neptune 8:01 PM, Moon trine Jupiter 9:38 PM.
Tuesday, January 30: Morning can feel uncomfortable as the Moon T-squares with Uranus and Mercury. Listen to a person’s discontent ask them to innovate, and watch the mood improve. As the Moon enters Leo early afternoon and trines Mars our sense of humor returns, but also an unwillingness to sit still to do boring work. We want something more exciting, important. Give the heart something dramatic, important and exciting to do tonight, but rein in an inclination to blow up an emotional situation just for the excitement. Find a constructive way to howl at that full Moon tonight.
Moon square Uranus 3:45 AM, Sun semi-square Chiron 8:41 AM, Moon opposed Mercury 9:40 AM, Moon enters Leo 11:52 AM, Moon trine Mars 4:12 PM.
Wednesday, January 31: The full Moon – lunar eclipse at 6:26 AM MST could shift our world, so watch the dramatic acting out in the headlines, and check in one another to find out what people are feeling. Life needs panache. Emotions can run at high tide, we may be chafing at the bit to find something worthy, or feel melodramatically overextended if we are engaged. Mercury enters Aquarius turns our attention to spacious new ideas, but we can be even more thoroughly fixed in our political opinions. If the people around respond with new stubbornness, new attachment to their theories, open the aperture and take a bigger perspective rather than confront directly.
Moon opposed Sun, lunar eclipse at 6:26 AM, Mercury enters Aquarius 6:38 AM, Moon opposed Venus 3:47 PM, Moon square Jupiter 9:59 PM.
Thursday, February 1: Most people still need a lot of attention this morning, clients need us to check in, bosses need listening to. By this afternoon it’s time to get back to work and tend the details. Figure out how to manifest those recent great new ideas. Just watch a tendency to feel sorry for oneself or expect other people to knuckle down when we want them to. Don’t get cranky, get efficient as the Moon enters Virgo and trine Saturn.
Moon trine Uranus 3:58 AM, Sun semi-sex tile Neptune 10:30 AM, Moon enters Virgo 12:12 PM, Moon squares Mars 6:48 PM, Moon squares Saturn 8:21 PM.
