Monday: Mercury sextile Saturn
In my reading for all signs for the month of January, the main idea was to finalize things. Today, Saturn in Scorpio and Mercury in Capricorn form a sextile which could make it easy to decide on something long term and initiate or follow through on significant matters. The planet of wisdom and work and the planet of communication and movement join forces. Commit to a project, goal or relationship. The void of course Moon in Pisces starts us off at 4:44 am ET and the Aries Moon arrives at 2:45 pm which may be a better time for announcements, signing documents and making final decisions. Aries is an action starter and there was a great New Moon on January 1st that's still powering us now. Make a serious move today. Double check all work especially things put in writing in the morning and early afternoon hours. End of the day is a good time for business. Wear red.
Tuesday: Aries Moon opposes Mars, Mercury conjunct Venus
Today is filled with energy and eventfulness as the Moon meets Uranus, always a wild card, and opposes Mars the action oriented planet. Uranus can have a startling effect and Mars is the warrior, currently working long term in Libra to settle injustices. Major issues surrounding fair treatment are sparked this week. Those who've been treated unfairly or silenced will suddenly speak out and make things public or demand that the situation change. Expect ultimatums, surprises, and potentially some chaos that will ultimately restore more balance. And this is only one aspect of the planetary activity! There are a number of squares which involve much effort to make progress. Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, and Libra, the cardinal signs host that action. Career, legal matters, business, and shared responsibilities are some themes here. Mutable signs, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces may find this is much about business and work. Fixed signs, Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus, and Leo experience this as communication issues and improvements and travel, study, transportation and educational plans. Also, for all of us, Mercury and Venus retrograde meet in Capricorn for practical and sensible talk between partners about money, living arrangements, how to make routines and work smoother, and other revisions that could occur in relationships, arrangement of space, and large administrative systems too. It's a big day with themes that carry through the winter and the week. Wear yellow.
Wednesday: Mars square Jupiter
Mars is relentlessly at work in Libra on justice, legalities, and balance between partners and in families. Today Mars squares Jupiter in the sign of family and home. With lots of effort, it's a day to improve, structure, and find more equality and balance in family relationships and also in business matters. Growth is the result, but work is required. Confrontations may be the precursor. Mars in Libra until mid summer is pushing us to see another perspective, take our share of responsibility and not more, and become more objective and less self centered. Working to get it right once and for all is a great plan right now! Mercury and Venus are also impacting the week significantly. Communication is key and our significant others and partners in business must be a priority in decision making and rethinking past actions with the intent to revise. Capricorn energy means no funny business. Be straight up and honest in all dealings. Drama and manipulation will only cause frustrations and regression. The Moon is void of course from 11:22 am ET to 9:24 pm and then in Taurus. Grounded, constructive energy sets in even further. Tonight and tomorrow, think long term and mean business. Today's color is pink.
Thursday: Taurus Moon
Taurus Moon can be good for work ethic as long as you enjoy what you're doing! With some luck and effort already put in, things may seem to happen effortlessly today as the Moon works readily with Neptune and Pluto. Act on what you feel sure and steadfast about. The physical, earth element dominates and our energy is well channeled into hands on, constructive tasks where we can see and show the results. Building anything, strengthening the body, creating and growing things are all in favor. Enjoy the fruits of labor and maybe a reward for your effort as Taurus Moon appreciates the good things in life. Wear green today.
Friday: Taurus Moon opposes Saturn
There are several aspects to consider today, but the Moon opposite Saturn is the stongest and most serious. Make sure you mean what you say and know the consequences of what you do. It's a day to follow through, meet expectations as well as possible, own up, and respect elders, managers and others who are in authority or could be helpful supporters. Jupiter, the Sun and Venus all send good vibes to the Moon from their respective signs. Relationships benefit. Do the right thing today. You'll know what it is. Even if it's not your first choice it's in your best interest in the longer haul. Show confidence and ability. Today's color is black.
Saturday: Mercury in Aquarius, Sun conjunct Venus
The Moon moves to Gemini at 7:26 am ET. Mercury, Gemini's ruling planet, changes signs at 4:35 pm. There's a changeable influence, and sometimes that's a good time to be still and patient. The Capricorn Sun is today's grounding influence, meeting Venus retrograde and in harmony with Saturn. This helps with relationships, confidence, and working through problems and plans. We'll tend to be talkative and want to be in the company of others. Gemini is the zodiac's storyteller and gatherings will be entertaining and social. Today's color is blue.
Sunday: Gemini Moon
Gemini Moon is a good time for socializing, learning, reading and discussing ideas. The mind is active and wants stimulation and interest. Explore a possibility or talk to someone interesting to spark new ideas or help with problem solving. Fill out applications and do other paperwork. Mars and Uranus work with the Gemini Moon so we may be inclined to debate. Keep it easygoing and avoid needless arguments, particularly about topics that don't directly impact your day to day life. It's a great day for a good book and writers could be inspired too! Wear yellow today.
