Week of February 4th

Monday, Feb. 4th: New Moon in Aquarius at 1:04pm Pacific.

Currently:
Mercury and Lilith in Aquarius (strong)
Venus in Capricorn (diminished)
Mars in Aries, close to Uranus (strong)
Jupiter in Sagittarius (strong)
Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn (strong)
North Node in Cancer

Monday, Feb. 4: New Moon in Aquarius – new beginnings for the next month. We are refreshed! The goals you set today will come to fruition this August. Think about networking, the groups you are involved with, and the gains you’d like to make. Set goals around activating and expressing your personal form of genius. Everyone has something they can do REALLY well. Let your originality and unique nature shine.

Aquarius means: freedom, vision, independence, the FUTURE, eccentricity, social circle, original ideas, technology, the intellectual, the humanitarian, the big picture and the community. It is the sharpened mind in touch with higher frequencies.

Tuesday, Feb. 5: Lots of good, fresh energy can be accessed early on, but prepare for daydreams, intuitiveness and creativity as the Moon enters the watery dreaminess of Pisces at sunset. Good evening for spiritual or occult activities.

Wed. Feb 6: Float through dreams and visions today and let go of being overly productive. Stay cozy and spiritually connected. Try not to overindulge, or do it without the guilt 🙂 Negotiations could be hard to define, so do that tomorrow or Friday.

Thurs. Feb. 7: Moon square Jupiter today. Our minds are finding relief from the Pisces fog, as the Moon moves towards Aries. Jupiter helps you expand your habits towards reaching your goals. Focus today on where you’re headed, and put some energy towards it.

Friday, Feb. 8: Moon into Aries gives us some vitality! It’s on a direct intercept with Mars and Uranus though, which could lead to a combustible weekend. The Moon will be squaring Venus and Saturn in Capricorn today, giving everything the weight of REALITY. Not the best date night.

Saturday, Feb. 9: Moon trines Jupiter in Sagittarius today! We have a day of expansive moods and celebration. Might not get a lot done. This is a day for FUN.

Mercury entering Pisces until April 16th. This puts Mercury into its Fall – i.e. the sharpness of our minds is diminished, and we turn towards our imaginations. The next month is a time for visioning, self expression and creative writing. Careful not to go too far out into fantasy and delusion! Keep the ground under your feet.

Stay soft

quan

Quan Yin by ZENG HAO DUN HUANG

“When people are born, they are soft and gentle.
When they die they are stiff and callous.
When myriad things, grasses, and trees, are born, they are soft and tender.
When they die, they are withered.
So stiffness and callousness are the company of death.
Softness and Suppleness are the company of Life.
The powerful army will not win.
A stiff tree will break.
So stiffness and power stay below.
Softness and suppleness stay above.”
~ Tao te Ching 道德經

Week of January 17th

Sun in Capricorn, into Aquarius Sunday!
Mercury in Capricorn (weakened).
Venus in Sagittarius (neutral).
Mars in Aries (strong).
Jupiter in Sagittarius (strong).
Saturn in Capricorn until March 2020 (rulership).
Uranus in Aries (strong).

The main astro news right now, is the Sun’s current conjunction with the South Node at 26 Capricorn. It will be there through the weekend. The South Node symbolizes the past, and everything you’ve already mastered. Since all of this is happening in the Earth sign of Capricorn, it will crystalize (earth) your vision (the Sun) of things you’ve mastered (South Node). It also represents Capricorn-type issues being diminished, since the past is disappearing behind us at every moment. Capricorn rules government, structures, old money and regulation, and it’s interesting that the government is currently going through it’s longest shut down in history.
On a personal level, we are experiencing our pasts and perhaps clinging to old ways of operating that no longer serve us. Ambition, control, discipline, responsibility are in a state of deterioration for the next year or so. Instead, Cancerian values are highlighted; sensitivity, nostalgia, sweetness, indulgence, motherhood and nurturing. Old ways are leaving us, and new ways are being introduced.
If you want a personalized report on your personal North Node placement, feel free to book me for a phone reading. We are also between two eclipses, a crossroads, and the appearance of a new portal for us to pass through. This time between two eclipses puts us in a place between the worlds. Whatever began for us in February 2017 is being completed this month. The Full Moon, Lunar eclipse in Leo is this Sunday.

THURSDAY, Jan. 17th: Gemini Moon, which brings socializing, but Mercury is in Capricorn which brings caution. Make sure you have all the facts before negotiating or communicating anything. Good time for real, solid commitments.

FRIDAY, Jan. 18th: Moon in Gemini, and 8:50am Venus (in Sag) trine Mars (in Aries). This aspect brings passion, joy and romance. The masculine and feminine find balance.
11.59am: Mercury conjunct Pluto. Excellent day for writers, self expression, therapy and research. We get to the heart of things. Be gentle if airing grievances today.
5:30pm: Sun square Uranus. We might see different paths to achieving what we want, or there could be a shake up in our souls and vision. Squares demand work for results.

SATURDAY, Jan. 19th: Moon in Cancer. oooo be gentle. This is a sensitive sign and we are two days away from an eclipse. Cook for your loved one today, or do some chore you’ve been promising to do forever. Clean the house and indulge. Lower the intensity.

SUNDAY, Jan. 20th: Moon in Cancer, and Sun into Aquarius at 1:00am Pacific. With the Sun in Capricorn, we’ve become clear about what we want to accomplish this year, gotten organized, and reached a new level of commitment. We’ve established a new, solid foundation, and the discipline to make our ambitions a reality. With the Sun’s entrance into Aquarius, the mood lightens and we look to the future.
8:30pm: Venus square Neptune. Tensions and a need to overcome illusions about love. Instead of indulging in escapism, try to embrace your spiritual strength and connection. And then go make some art.
9:15pm: Full moon eclipse at 0 degrees Leo. Wherever this eclipse falls in your chart opens up a doorway to a new path. The 0 degree of any sign is one of the strongest expressions of it’s nature. Pay attention what occurs in your life this weekend and Monday… there could be some flashes of your future.

MONDAY, Jan. 21st: Moon in Leo. Fallout from the huge eclipse yesterday continues.
3:15am: Mars square Saturn. This is a tough aspect, since both of these planets are tough-minded. Squares bring tension, but illuminate work to be done to overcome the block. Mars wants to charge ahead without thinking, and Saturn is cautious. A balance needs to be enacted here.

TUESDAY, Jan. 22nd: Moon in Leo. Today we begin the clean up from our wild weekend.
4:30am Pacific Venus conjunct Jupiter. One of the happiest, luckiest, most romantic of yearly aspects between these two luminaries. Take some time to smell the roses today. Accept party invites and hang around people you enjoy.

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 23rd: Moon in Virgo. We are back into organizing our lives, and taking action on our procrastination.
Aries and Aries Rising — Identity, the self, creativity, children
Taurus and Taurus Rising — Home, family, living situation, roots, emotional needs
Gemini and Gemini Rising — The voice, the mind, learning, education, communication, travel, movement
Cancer and Cancer Rising — Money, income, what you own, material needs, spending, resources, value

Week of January 7th

cap1New Moon in Capricorn last Saturday.
Mercury in Capricorn (weakened).
Venus in Sagittarius (neutral).
Mars in Aries (strong).
Jupiter in Sagittarius (strong).
Saturn in Capricorn until March 2020 (rulership).
Uranus now Direct in Aries (strong).

The New Moon Eclipse last Saturday activated the South Node (the past). This represents personal gifts in our lives that we have already mastered. The North Node is our nature, or obvious personality, and where we have natural talent. With this New Moon, the corner of your chart containing Capricorn will be going through a change. A new door will open, influenced by the house placement and any aspects.

Saturn (reality) and Pluto (the soul’s evolution) in Capricorn are going to effect the South Node (the past) during the eclipses this year. Saturn, and Capricorn, are about mastery and responsibility. With the South Node there, we will be tested to see if we have truly mastered the lessons of our pasts, or we will be tested with the same old situations until we are done.
Where do you want to be by the time Saturn leaves Capricorn?

Mercury isn’t thrilled with being in Capricorn. Mercury wants to be zing-y, but Capricorn is cautious and sure-footed. Communication is slowing down for a few weeks.

Mars has gone into his rulership in Aries (finally!! Yay!!), after months of going backwards and slogging through Pisces. Our plans are now in direct, confident motion. This happened on New Year’s Day too, so the fresh, new Mars energy is invigorating 2019 in general 🙂

MONDAY, January 7th: Moon in Aquarius. Focus is on groups, humanitarian ideals and teamwork. Uranus is still stationing (standing still) in Aries, so there could be unexpected events or revelations coming from left field. Listen for new ideas and revelations from your inner voice.
Uranus stationary direct in late Aries can bring unexpected shocks, liberating surprises, fresh vision and new ways to utilize technology. Independence, spontaneity and a break from routine are common themes. Where can you bring more freedom into your life? Do something different.
Venus enters Sagittarius during Monday’s pre-dawn hours, bringing faith, luck, truth and exploration to the arena of Love. We immediately feel more optimistic, sociable and generous in the areas of art and romance.

TUESDAY, January 8th: Moon in Aquarius. Mercury squares Mars at 2:00am, but influences the day. Stay away from confronting, debating or negotiating with anyone today. It’s a good day for writing or getting organized though.

WEDNESDAY, January 9th: Pisces Moon. Daydream and fantasize today. Facts will slip through your fingers. Today we survive using our intuition. Seek solitude, quiet, healing and music.

THURSDAY, Jan. 10th: Pisces Moon. Quiet day. Meditate, daydream, create visions and art.

FRIDAY, Jan. 11th: Moon void-of-course in Pisces all day. Don’t commit to or sign anything. A day of relaxation. Sun conjunct Pluto helps you update your life vision. The will to power or to defend against it can quickly turn violent. Avoid arguments. Sexual preoccupation and obsession is possible, as is suspicion and paranoia. Fun can be had by exploring the psyche sexually and otherwise for catharsis. What stands in your way right now? What outdated attitudes and perspectives can you release?

SATURDAY, Jan. 12th: Moon in Aries (meeting up with Mars). You’ll probably feel a lot of energy, drive and excitement today! Make good use of it, but avoid headstrong behavior.
