***All times are EST***
***This week’s forecast does not include asteroids. I will resume the in-depth forecasts next week***
Monday January 29th
At 6:41pm Mars in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus- harmoniously aligning the Will and Drive with the Rebel and Revolutionary. Mars in Capricorn is focused, driven and tenacious. Uranus adds an element of innovation, expansion and positive change! These two can be channeled as a great force for good in our lives and in the world around us. We are able to use this amazing astrology in our work and careers and it could even be amazing for boosting finances and abundance. We have the staying power to do things in new and innovative ways- so tap into the potent energy on tap today!
Tuesday January 30th-
At 2:04am Mars in Capricorn squares the Mean Nodes of the Moon- bringing our path of Destiny and Karma to a crossroads as the Will and God of action forces our hand. Mars is spotlighting the karmic past and where we are stuck- with motivation to grow and move forward. Mars rules the North Node – which demands agency, action, taking a stand and speaking Truth. The Mercury/Mars conjunction from 1/27 can bring information and realizations that demand we question our path and make changes. Pay attention to where your growth edge is and move past it today!
Mercury in Capricorn semisquares Saturn in Pisces at 3:59am- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. Mercury is in Saturn’s sign so we have some extra Saturnine energy present right now. Both Mercury and Mars- who just cojoined on 1/27- are making a lot of aspects this week including semisquares to the Planet that rules the sign they are in. Mercury/Saturn is great for getting serious and focused- but there can be a tendency to be pessimistic, depressed or cynical as well. Saturn demands we have the rose colored glasses off when he is in Pisces but we still want to retain hope, see beauty and envision possibilities. So balance is key this week!
At 10:48pm the Sun in Aquarius semisquares Neptune in Pisces- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Planet that dissolves ego boundaries. This astrology can be great for mysticism, inspiration, romance and creativity- but it can also exacerbate tendencies to disassociate, be ungrounded, overly-idealistic and escapist. Aquarius and Pisces are the last two signs of the Tropical Zodiac so tapping into the transpersonal, transcendent energy without escaping the body and being human is key.
Wednesday January 31st-
There are no major transits today.
Thursday February 1st-
At 3:52am Mercury in Capricorn squares Eris in Aries- making for some revealing and unexpected communication or information. As this happens in the early morning hours you can feel this build from last night into this morning and it may appear via dreams as well. Mercury in Capricorn likes what is linear, logical and controllable. Eris in Aries likes to upset the apple cart by showing us what no wants to look at or talk about. Be extra conscious in communication today and don’t engage in combat just for the sake of it. If you need to take a stand- do so- but be sure you are aware of your own shadow that might be running things from behind the scenes. This is a time to watch out for unskillful expression of anger and rage- but it’s also a great time to use your voice, stand up for what you believe in and hold your ground. Balance is key.
Friday February 2nd-
At 1:15am Mars in Capricorn semisquares Saturn in Pisces- creating tension between the Will and Drive and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. Mars is exalted in Capricorn in part because the Will and ego self can perform well when he is about to set boundaries, have integrity, be responsible and act with long term focus not just short term, in the moment focus. Yet the tense aspect to Saturn can either exacerbate limits, repression or feeling held back OR exacerbate the desire to check out from any limits whatsoever. Use the mastery of Capricorn/Saturn to work hard to fulfill your dreams right now for best results.
Mercury in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces at 5:55am- linking the Planet of Communication with the Higher Heart and planet of Intuition. Mercury/Neptune is great for taking dreams/intuition/vision and communicating them or working with them in practical, tangible ways. There is a capacity to bridge the mundane and the sacred right now. Communication can be both grounded and inspiring. Pay attention to dreams received over night for messages from the Unconscious!
Saturday February 3rd-
At 3:49am Uranus in Taurus quincunxes the Mean South Node in Libra- creating tension between the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener and the South Node of Karma, Limitation and the past. Uranus in tense aspect with the South Node can bring sudden and unexpected things to Light around where we are sweeping things under the carpet, peace keeping at any cost, and maintaining appearances.
It is interesting to note that Uranus and the South Node are both in Venus-ruled signs- spotlighting partnerships, marriage, women and the feminine, finances and our relational dynamics with others. Uranus can awaken a need to deal with things that have gone on for too long OR Uranus can feel like the rug pulled out from underneath us in situations we have kept the peace for too long and we are not willing to change so the Universe has to do it for us.
Uranus will semisextile the North Node in Aries- so the point of growth and evolution is to TAKE ACTION- to speak up, set boundaries, say No. Aries in his highest has agency- which is the power to act without needing other to motivate it or do it for us. Aries is also the power of the individual and the people- knowing we have power via our votes, how we spend our dollars and the small and important actions we take everyday that has far reaching impact.
Keep in mind we just had Eris on the North node in October/November of last year (article linked below about it) and we are heading to Chiron on the North Node in late February/early March (Part One blog below- more coming soon). So right now there is a HUGE PUSH for activating the full power of the North Node in Aries- but first we have to see what blocks us from going there.
With the South Node in Libra part of what blocks us is our own people pleasing, peace keeping, wanting things to be beautiful and balanced and perfect- so we do not want to rock the boat or pull back the curtain to see the very real things going on behind the scenes. Uranus is very good at revealing things via inspiration and illumination OR via shocks and unexpected events that throw us for a loop. It is recommended to keep your mind open and to embrace change for best results :)
Sunday February 4th-
Solar Imbolc is exact today at 3:27am EST- the moment the Sun transits into the 15th degree of Aquarius marking the precise midpoint between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. This is the Gate of Emergence- as at this time on Earth the Sun will emerge more and more- staying up longer and moving us ever so slowly away from the longest night of Winter Solstice- and if you live where there is snow you may start to see little shoots coming up from the earth reminding you that Spring is coming!
The Solar Gate Call for Imbolc will be up midweek and can be accessed by Galactic Benefactor members.
Solar Gate Calls align to the precise Gateway points of the Sun (The 2 Solstices & 2 Equinoxes, as well as the 4 Cross-Quarter Days) with the 4 Cross Quarter dates falling on astronomical alignments that are different than the conventional calendar versions of these dates. For example Calendar Imbolc is 2/1 while Solar Imbolc is 2/4.
These calls are full of mythology, astrology, shadow work and a guided meditation to help you attune to the Solar Mysteries and Solar Magic present at these threshold moments in our journey through the Wheel of the Year.
“The most recent gate call is fantastic!!! I’m just amazed how you pack in so much wisdom & provide a deeply nourishing transmission at the same time.”
