Sun in Aquarius & Uranus meets Mars, Astrology for January 17th-23rd, 2021

 Sunday: Pisces Moon meets Neptune for inspiration and soothing. We are less than a week into the new lunar cycle and it's a positive time to formulate plans and act on ideas. Give yourself some extra dream time today. The Moon aligns with both Pluto and the Sun in Capricorn, helping us to see things clearly and create step by step plans that match our intentions, purpose, and soul journey. The one square in the zodiac involves Jupiter in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is a powerful catalyst this week. For today, we may struggle with situations that come up unexpectedly, changing the big picture. Adjustments are decently timed though, with a mutable Pisces Moon. Void Moon 10:44 pm EST to 2:07 am Monday. Today's color is Blue.

Monday: Aries Moon changes the dynamic. A fiery, stirred up week is in the making. Today, the Moon aligns with Saturn and Jupiter. Aries Moon is for matching emotions and intentions with actions. Keep pursuing your new goals and plans. Saturn adds the wisdom, and Jupiter adds inspiration and knowledge. Keep the big picture in mind and take one step or reach out to one potential supporter on this energetic and harmonious day. We do have a major conjunction coming on Wednesday, and some may experience the effects of that. For the whole week, stay out of harm's way and out of unnecessary conflict. This is not a time for taking risks. Today's color is Red.

Tuesday: Aries Moon squares Venus and forms a harmonious sextile to Mercury. In relationship matters, look for common ground. Try not to push or control people you care about. This Venus square suggests effort to resolve relationship matters. Mercury helps with communication and working together. At 3:40 pm EST, the Sun moves to Aquarius, the current home of Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn. This next month contains lots of Aquarius energy for awareness of collective consciousness, how our actions influence the conditions of others (even those we do not know), and expansion of vision for the future as well as the present. Tomorrow contains a very tumultuous conjunction that affects all of this week. My suggestion is to avoid crowds, unpredictable people and any situation with a safety concern. Keep sending out good vibes, prayers, loving kindness and tangible support to others. Wear Yellow.

Wednesday: On this Inauguration Day, the Moon is void of course from 3:29 am to 1:56 pm EST. That means the actual Inauguration of President Joe Biden happens with Moon void of course. There are lots of reasons for caution, extra sets of eyes, extra attention to details and awareness of pets, children, and anyone else whose safety you are responsible for. Mars meets Uranus, and that is why. Uranus shakes and stirs and unearths while in Taurus. Mars in Taurus is persistent and unyielding. These two co-create sudden action. They meet at 3:28 pm EST. Stay in your comfort or safety zone today. Avoid overdoing, such as over exertion. Do not drive fast or unaware. Taurus Moon squares the Sun and Saturn reinforcing what we're committed to and also contributing to stubborn opinions and ways. Today's color is Black.

Thursday: Taurus Moon meets Uranus and Mars continuing yesterday's effects and adding to the emotional quality of this. We're in a major shift and it could feel unsettled or very inspiring, possibly both at once. Humans may feel very emotional and activated today. Jupiter is square to the Moon, reminding us of long term vision, wisdom and knowledge we've gained, and challenging us to use it and follow through even when it's not easy. This may feel like a time to 'push through', hang in there, and commit to what we know is right, for the good of all. Today's color is Violet.

Friday: Taurus Moon in harmony with Venus is romantic and sensual. There's also a favorable practical aspects for lovers setting up home together or otherwise joining resources. The Moon also aligns with Neptune and Pluto. This creates time and space for valuable reflection. The Moon and Mercury square, so getting the words out on paper or in discussion may be challenging. Perhaps the message needs more time to formulate clearly. Mercury is approaching a retrograde in Aquarius. Some things can be saved for late February, some cannot. Find your best timeline by using your intuition. All in all, today may feel more steady or reliable, like getting feet back on the ground and head back on straight, depending what's gone on in the world and in your own life. Center yourself. Void Moon 4:28 [pm EST to 2:43 am on Saturday. Wear Green.

Saturday: Gemini Moon with several aspects, mostly harmonious. Today could feel optimistic or outgoing. Share ideas and engage in conversation without needing to commit to anything. Mars squares Jupiter and one effect is to match actions with vision, such as acting with intention, for the long term, and with awareness of our connection to each other whether that be countries, groups or individuals. There's a focus on collective connection in this new year as planets tour and emphasize all that Aquarius represents. Technology, how it's regulated and developed and how we use it is a major theme. Notice how that has really come to the forefront recently. How can we use social media and all our communication systems and even medicine most beneficially and for all? Medical advances are technology too. Technology is applying science and invention for practical purpose. Tonight, the Sun and Saturn meet in Aquarius with themes of mastery, the wisdom of age and experience,  and answering or acting on our calling. One effect or encouragement is to take responsibility. Today's color is Yellow.

Mercury in Aquarius, New Moon in Capricorn Forecast for January 10th-16th, 2021

Be prepared in your own way for Mercury retrograde in Aquarius starting at the end of this month, for 3 weeks. Backup files and data, finalize business matters and contracts, and make important purchases now through January 15th, or wait until the end of February. Five planets have changed signs recently, including our closest neighbors, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter are all in forward thinking and community minded Aquarius, while Venus and Pluto are in Capricorn and Mars just moved to Taurus, a sign Uranus is now inhabiting for many years. Air is intellect and ideas, earth is resources and approaches.

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon squares Neptune in Pisces. The Moon is in the sign of truth and freedom while Neptune is the planet of illusion, in an emotional sign. We could delude ourselves. Try to keep it real. Avoid getting sucked into situations you've extracted yourself from before. Enjoy a simple adventure. Try not to be guilted into anything. Use your vast sense of imagination and release from limiting beliefs. Let a 'story' go in favor of getting ready for new starts and expanding opportunities. You are not just that one thing or role. Invite the dynamics of change with the Moon and Neptune in mutable signs. Void Moon from 1:29 pm EST through the night. Today's color is Light Blue.

Monday: A change of Moon sign as we move toward New Moon in Capricorn at midnight on Tuesday into Wednesday. New Moon at midnight doesn't often occur! At 8:30 am EST we start Capricorn Moon hours. The Moon forms a trine with Mars and later meets Venus. This may help with things we need to agree on, productive team efforts, and relationship matters where you need to see eye to eye. Both aspects are constructive and earthy. Mercury meets Jupiter for opportunities and plans. This happens in visionary Aquarius. What can you reconstruct and reimagine this month, with an eye to the future. In the evening, the Moon aligns with Uranus which can be emotionally unsettling yet also may get us unstuck. Today's color is Green.

Tuesday: For some time zones, New Moon is tonight and for some, it's on Wednesday. New Moon in Capricorn arrives at midnight EST. Mercury and Uranus square this morning, and it's a challenge to break out of old patterns and habits around communication, how technology is used (or abused), and to find ways to pursue new ideas and plans that seem to have obstacles as well as promise. Capricorn Moon in harmony with Neptune blends practical and creative methods and perspectives well. Today's color is Blue.

Wednesday: New Moon 12:00 am EST and at 2:22 am the Moon meets Pluto. Capricorn's way is sensible, businesslike, and not always in consideration of feelings. Trying to override feelings or underestimate emotions and relationships is rarely realistic though. Pluto reminds us of our depths. This New Moon encourages a realistic and clear look at who and how we are, right now. Pluto brings the soul journey to the forefront. Capricorn is earthly. Our purpose and how we use our lives and bodies to carry out and express that purpose is highlighted at this New Moon. Recognize your personal power.  See your struggles for what they are and acknowledge where you have some control, such as breaking from a destructive habit or alliance with someone. Mars is a player today, square to Saturn and also to the Moon, once the Moon is in Aquarius. Mars activates and agitates, calling us to action. Backtracking, the void of course Moon time is 2:22 am to 11:44 am EST, and those hours call for pause and thoughtfulness. Go slower than you want to. The Moon shifts to Aquarius and meets Saturn, the planet Mars squares at 6:02 am EST. Saturn is lessons, respect, serious intention and business. Use wisdom in all you do and in all your words. There is nothing frivolous or unimportant under these aspects. With several more aspects, I will mention just one. Venus and Uranus form a trine for easy changes of relationship dynamic, relationship status, and approaches to compromise. This is the last day before Mercury retrograde where computer, phone or other appliances, for example, are bought outside the shadow of the upcoming retrograde. Aquarius Moon will continue through Thursday. Today's color is White.

Thursday: Late Wednesday night, at 11:44 pm EST, the Moon squared Uranus, the planet that stations direct in Taurus today at 3:36 am. Uranus disturbs the status quo and erupts as rebellion, genius, inspiration, or revolution, for examples. In Taurus, it acts like an earthquake. Our fault lines are tested. Uranus direct may assist with long term change and a feeling of going forward rather than back. If you're hanging on to the past, that may shift or at least you will see that it's not possible to do so. The Moon meets Mercury today for that kind of forward thinking and ideas about the future and communication or technological upgrades or breakthroughs. It's a tech firm's dream. Act quickly if you feel that inner certainty. The Sun and Pluto join in Capricorn, pointing out popular opinion, and adding to the expression of deep, inner feelings and ideas. What was hiding in the shadows comes into the sunlight. Void Moon starts at 4:28 am EST. Wear Turquoise.

Friday: A long void of course Moon is in progress until 5:17 pm EST. This is an in between time. You may experience this as reasons to pause, feelings of being in flux or uncertain, or you may feel very creative and open minded. It's not a good time for major purchases or promises. Get lost in something that interests and inspires. Pisces Moon weekend begins at 5:17 pm EST with no lunar aspects of note tonight. Allow for feelings, connect on an emotional level, keep boundaries that protect and maintain your wellness and sanity, and know that it's natural to feel a bit lazy or unmotivated. That will pass too. Today's color is Pink.

Saturday: Pisces Moon forms 3 harmonious angles to Mars, Uranus and Venus. Two are in Taurus and Venus is in Capricorn, both are earth signs. There may be ups and downs or mood changes, primarily related to relationships. Yet this is harmony, so things may go easier than expected even if developments are surprising. Feelings may surprise us too. Be sensitive with others as Pisces Moon tends to require gentleness and understanding. Forgiveness is favored today. Wear Green.

Hey 2021! Astrology for the 1st Full Week including 3 Planets Change Signs!

Looking for a change of vibe? Wish granted. Mars, Venus and Mercury change signs. 

Sunday: Virgo Moon for health conscious awareness. Healthy decisions and choices for body and mind are favored today. Constructive and alternative approaches come as the Moon aligns with the Sun and with Uranus, also in earth signs. It's a day to get things done and take care of your well being, or offer help so others can do the same. Today's color is Brown.

Monday: Virgo Moon continues and with new considerations, courtesy of 4 significant aspects with planets. These influences differ and today feels like 'a mixed bag' and maybe blessings in disguise. Keep these ideas in mind: escapism/realism, practicality/impracticality, clear communication, down to earth approaches, middle ground. Mercury meets Pluto in Capricorn, leading to requests and voicing goals, needs and desires. Void Moon time 4:34 pm to 12:42 am EST. Wear Black today.

Tuesday: Libra Moon kicks in at 12:42 am EST. The Moon is in harmony with Saturn and Jupiter, providing awareness of community and the collective consciousness, collective needs. Themes of fairness come up, especially in terms of how resources are divided and decisions are made with the well being of partnerships and community at the heart of it all. Truth, justice, resources and well being are prominent in today's astrological activity. In what way can you and someone else support each other, experience honesty and grow? Today's color is Purple.

Wednesday: Libra Moon in the 4th quarter, waning, encouraging release. The Moon squares the Sun, Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn. Some will experience struggle, indecision or even grief with these squares. Remind yourself that you can't always, and don't always need to, know what to do next. Sit with feelings. Do the right thing by someone else, such as in a breakup or business decision. Lean into fairness and honesty. If you're at a standstill with an ongoing situation, pause and allow for the shift of Mars. Mars moving to Taurus may change certain things, including a move from ideas and inspiration to concrete action. Mars moves to Taurus at 5:27 pm EST after an extra long stay in Aries during 2020. Overnight, the Moon is in harmony with Venus, encouraging a new outlook on love and romance. Today's color is Black, for the second time this week. Black offers a protective, absorbing influence. Go to your obsidian, onyx, hematite and even smokey quartz crystals today. Remember your intentions. Breathe.

Thursday: Libra Moon squares Mercury and aligns with Venus, both in the midnight hour. This may help break stalemates, eventually. Try not to rush things this morning. Focus on personal relationships, and also on business relationships, as you pursue goals and decisions. Void of course Moon from 12:55 to 3:21 am EST for letting things gestate and progress quietly without effort. Scorpio Moon has a heavy, strong, committed influence. Uranus opposes the Moon, always a potent aspect and part of our monthly experience. It can disrupt and/or encourage us to re-create. Notice if there's something to be scrapped or bailed out of before you can fully immerse in a goal or decision. The Moon also opposes Mars. This looks like a wild one, and it'll be happening monthly also. Strong perseverance and yet stubborn and unyielding energies rise up. it may be really hard to find agreement, and vengefulness could take over. Two squares round out today's aspects, and suffice it to say this is an intense time. Work with adversity. Avoid trying to change minds. Stick with your principles if they're worth fighting for. Today's color is Maroon or any dark red.

Friday: Mercury moves to Aquarius at 7 am EST, joining Saturn and Jupiter and preparing for two conjunction between Saturday night and Monday afternoon. This seems to indicate major agreements, announcements and decisions. Stay tuned for both world and personal news that may arrive around New Moon right at midnight Tuesday/ Wednesday! Something about a New Moon at midnight exactly feels auspicious and important. Venus makes a move to Capricorn at 10:41 am EST. Venus gets real and practical about relationships and love while in Capricorn for about a month. The Sun is also in Capricorn, in harmony with Neptune. This may help blend pragmatic and romantic energies so it's not all business. Scorpio Moon today, waning big time. Let go of things that block you. Invite creativity as the Moon and Neptune align for imagination, art, music and dreams. Mercury and Mars get into it tonight, in different signs with different agendas. Can you avoid an argument and instead have a productive conflict as necessary? Avoid rash or harsh actions or words.  Void Moon starts at 9 pm EST. Today's color is Navy Blue.

Saturday: What a first week of 2021! I don't know yet how it played out, but with these changes and planetary engagements, I'm fairly sure it's been intense, involved, and probably dramatic. Sagittarius Moon time begins at 6:15 am EST. The Moon aligns with planets in Aquarius today, opening our minds and perspectives. Can we have freedom and individual power without dishonoring or diminishing relationships and others? That is today's quest. Truth, honesty, wisdom of experience and age, and thoughts or decisions about programs of study and/or travel are some of our themes. Venus aligns with Mars which is usually a nice touch. Love and harmony flourish as differences diminish and we feel each other's point of view and goodness. Fire and earth energies are strong today, so we'll be doing and acting on our plans and inspirations. Wear Purple.
