Sidereal Western Astrology
Friday, January 1st first I would like to say Happy New Year to all those who get these astrological updates! In a pro active spirit, I want to make note that Mercury will go retrograde this week on the Tuesday the 5th. Mercury has started its journey in Capricorn which affects strategic plans and money. Know that most of this retrograde will be in good aspect with Jupiter the opportunist, until the 18th. So bear witness to situations that your communications initiate and speak only well of the future. Try to see the good luck in anything that may otherwise be disappointing. We are still in a phase of creating something better for ourselves, so why not promote the best? Use the silver lining argument for a while. Try not to sign any contracts right now. February may be better. Otherwise the other influences are romance will take a back seat to creating a comfortable feel to your surroundings. Moon in Virgo.
Saturday, January 2nd. Today’s influence will have you instigating some very positive changes for health and healing (Sun & Pluto in Sagittarius sextile to Chiron in Aquarius). There is more focus on mental health and supporting philosophy, without the airy fairy denial vibe. Also this next week will find unusual support for bringing the spirit of life into your day to day expectations. The Saturn in Scorpio /Uranus in Pisces trine can present opportunities to inspire you with verses for everyday. I love using a method of bibliomancy where I have a book of short verses, or tarot cards and just flip until the book opens up. That is the inspiration for the day. It is always a good idea to let light into your morning while you are fresh and see how that can guide your day. Attitude is everything right now, as today, you will be particularly pressed to make attitude course corrections. Moon in Virgo.
Sunday, January 3rd. the day starts out with a sense of a weak mind and no energy. Why fight it? Today the Moon conjuncts Mars in a weakened state in Libra, so sort out yesterdays choices and fine tune what you can. We are all works in progress; keep your sights on the high road. Yes there are attention getting stumbling blocks everywhere, but the test is to work around them. Moon in Libra.
Monday, January 4th there is a positive triad with the Sun/Pluto in Sagittarius as the focal point. Allow this day to usher in revelations of how well recent adjustments and decisions work out. There are times when learning to be receptive to events is more beneficial to trying to control every step. Today the universe does not respond well to short sighted or tightly held control. There is so much more out there and we are a part of the whole, not the king or queen. Moon in Libra.
Tuesday, January 5th. If you haven’t felt the shift yet, today it the day that areas around security, systems and money may start to be challenged. Mix-ups and foul ups are frequently to blame. For the next few weeks, double check bank statements, contracts and whatever relates to communications. Maybe turn off your auto correct as new relationships may be strained over chaotic word choices. Moon in Scorpio by mid day.
Wednesday, January 6th for success, follow up on all memos etc from work and business. Heaviness is over a number of people and they are just not fully engaged in what they are doing. Maybe their new beau is not texting, maybe they lost an important tax document… who knows. Cover yourself and do a lot of follow up. There is some luck with new endeavors but be aware that some co creating will be necessary for success. Two heads are always better than one. Moon in Scorpio.
Thursday, January 7th today we will want what WE want! You just can’t force things to happen. Look for synchronicities to fill in the next line of exploration or endeavor. Those riding the wave of self discovery will find the most reward. Just bear in mind, not all of it is fun and easy. But growth is defiantly there! Much of this relates to your outlook, not your altruistic or fantastical dreams. Moon in Scorpio.
Blessings and Peace,
