SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
It has been awhile since the primary planets have been direct. The only retrograde happening right now is Mercury and for the next few days it will not be connecting with much which reduces the mischief. Uranus will be direct and I think that for several days we will see lots of shake ups without the personal destabilizing affects. A lot can be illuminated this week, and in doing so, a clearer path forward is seen. So, get your personal house in order with some wiggle room for the unexpected.
New Year’s Day and after will be great for new beginnings and couples. Some very strong stabilizing connections are creating space for those looking for romance or boosting love.Venus is starting its journey in Aquarius, so connections on a consciousness level are more likely. If you aren’t “looking” this is still a wonderful time for fulfillment, new discoveries, and explorations. Allow yourself these warm feelings because they can be called upon later when you get worn down.
Friday, December 30th, with so much in Sagittarius right now, how could you feel anything except optimism? This is a time when we can plan for ending 2016 and beginning of 2017. Yeah, there is regular news that should cause fire alarms to go off, but we have to think that what was dislodged from the general psyche in 2016 can now be reformed into something more inclusive, or not. This is a time where our attitudes make a lot of impact on the future. I would like to add a light towards getting it right than just my way. Because of how Mars is situated, it will be hard to get into the mood to take personal action because of the uncertainty. So planning and visualizing is a safer plan. The day will start out in mystical guru state and then turn into making a list and getting organized. Like picking up things for your New Year’s celebration. Moon in Sagittarius until later when it goes into Capricorn.
Saturday, December 31st, today and tomorrow Mars will be exact on Neptune in Aquarius. Neptune can add confusion or mystery to any action. This can be a tough call on how it will be expressed. Those who are not feeling good will towards man mankind, expect real pressure to act out. Be careful where you celebrate and who you invite. After a few drinks, it could be really ugly. Or hire a bouncer and party on. Try to tap into the joy of turning a page on life and optimism for the future. If you don’t do resolutions, then pick up some reading that will expand your mind or heal your heart. One of my traditions is to wear something new, and have the house cleaned up. Something about a well-maintained space just starts the new year out well. I also have all repairs done before celebrating. But then, I generally fall asleep well before midnight. Tomorrow is my day to party. Moon in Capricorn.
Sunday, January 1st, I raise my mimosa to all and wish you a Happy New Year! The morning after has some joys in store. The reset for this next year could be very powerful. Doesn’t mean that change or challenges won’t be difficult, but you will see openings to solutions and recombination’s that are more in tune with what is needed. This evening will be good for some star gazing as Venus and the Moon in Aquarius will be very close to each other. Maybe time to make a wish for some deep desire? Moon in Aquarius.
Monday, January 2nd, you probably will meet a roadblock to all that good intention from New Years. Take it in stride and get back on course as soon as you can. The future will require everyone’s work and adjustments. May I philosophize here a minute? We have been moving into a very polarized world. It is affecting the whole planet. Where did the mid ground go? There is so much of that which needs to be rediscovered. Instead of falling into tribalism’s, think of what is really important. This will be another night where the Moon will be close to Venus, but right on Mars… just consider traveling with Mars in the unseen Neptune the seat of mass consciousness. Be open to listening to alternative reasonable solutions. Moon in Aquarius.
Tuesday, January 3rd, the next few days, the Mercury retrograde should be losing its bad reputation. Some unusual circumstances may well turn into bright prospects for the future. Your challenge is to sort out what part you can contribute to that illumination. Although it will be hard, do take time for your health and wellbeing. Don’t neglect it right now. When you take that time, it allows others to take that time also. Recharge, you are going to need it soon! Moon in Pisces this evening.
Wednesday, January 4th, the Sun is now close enough to Pluto for the next 10 days or so that some real-world pressure for change and “performance” must happen. I look at it as more of showdown. So just imagine Tombstone, in 1881…. the various factions will be headed to an intersection and it is unknown how it will turn out. What is sure is who wins the battle will be writing the history. Does not mean that history will look favorably on the events. This is a good time to email legislators about your opinions. The bulk listings are easy, but it is really easy to just email them directly, so don’t get lazy. Feelings will be high, so keep it proactive and constructive criticism. Those are the messages that will be read. Moon in Pisces.
Thursday, January 5th, many of the more fortuitous angles have taken a break so it will be rough for a while. The tension will be high with world affairs in the spotlight. Listen, understand, contemplate consequences. That is all you can do right now. Still many things happening that will surprise or shock everyone. Let those things come out and see how things fit. I plan on a quiet night with meditation before I go to bed. Let your dreams tell you what you can do or any other messages about your life that need to be revealed. Open up but don’t react. Moon in Pisces.
Blessings and Peace,
