happy chinese lunar new year of the black water rabbit! i study chinese astrology- i am not a master of it by any means. but i do want to share what i have learned about this year.

rabbit is the most auspicious of all the signs- it brings peace and longevity. water is the deepest yin element and amplifies the potential for healing, balance, serenity and peace incoming this year. in chinese myth they saw water as black and considered it the king of all colors. black is the color of heaven- a nod to the primordial source energy of the waters of creation. as new year occurs when the new moon is in aquarius- we have just entered into the watery constellations aka the celestial sea of capricornus, aquarius and pisces (the sea goat, the water bearer and the fish). in tropical astrology we are in aquarius but in actual living sky astrology we just moved into capricornus on january 19th (stargate mystery school students know this!)

so a black water rabbit is really amazing and auspicious! the rabbit is the familiar of the moon Goddess Chang’e and is connected to the western astrology sign of cancer (the sign of the moon). the qualities of rabbit are yin, passive, tender, soft, noble, serene, quiet, kind and benevolent. the coming year is an amazing time to honor, anchor into and deepen your relationship to YIN.

happy chinese new year!



monday january 23rd-
at 3:02pm neptune cojoins vesta at 23’21 pisces, aligning the mystic and Higher Heart with the Priestess and asteroid of devotion. this is profound for spirituality, intuition, psychic gifts and more. neptune and vesta have very similar energies in that they are both willing to sacrifice their personal desires for altruistic goals and visions. we just have to watch out for OVER sacrificing ourselves or being so transpersonal and big picture that we are not attending to the details of our personal life and emotions, or not dealing with reality. imagination, inspiration and creativity run high! give yourself time to meditate, retreat, reflect, dream, paint, draw, dance, play music- or whatever else feels like a channel through which inspiration can pour through you right now. the neptune/vesta conjunction is conjunct the new moon tomorrow so this energy permeates the entire lunar cycle we are heading into. just watch out for the shadow of pisces: being in denial, spiritual bypassing, escapism, addiction and and believing in illusion.

mercury in capricorn semisquares saturn in aquarius at 6:09pm- creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. some serious and perhaps depressing conversations or thoughts can come in today- but the point is to help us GET REAL. we need to see reality first before we can really know what is possible. dealing with things in work/career or friendship/group situations demands mastery and integrity today.


tuesday january 24th-
at 3:23am mars in gemini semisquares eris in aries, creating tension between the will and drive and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. mars’ link with this goddess reveals the shadow no one wants to look at. mars/eris can be fiery and dynamic but it can also get out of hand and be aggressive, reactive and violent. navigating conflicts with awareness is recommended all week! this is the 3rd and final semisquare between these two due to mars’ recent retrograde. pay attention to where shadow is coming to Light and things are being destabilized to show you what is beneath the surface that needs to be addressed!

mars in gemini quincunxes the mean south node in scorpio at 7:35am- creating tension between the Will and Drive and the karmic south node in a sign that is mars ruled. this is the 3rd and final quincunx as this was a signature in the recent mars retrograde journey. mars is bringing up and out the shadows hidden in the south node- emotional shadows, power/control dynamics and more. be aware of your communication style as being dominating in communication will not facilitate finding common ground! mars in gemini prefers lightness and the surface- whereas the south node in scorpio demands we deal with what is hidden in the Unconscious and shadows. watch out for making light of things that need to be held deeply.

at 7:46pm venus in aquarius semisquares chiron in aries- bringing the Goddess of Love and Beauty into contact with the Wounded Healer. old wounds and pain arising right now around self-worth, self-Love, belief in being worth of abundance and in relationships with others can be in focus. venus in aquarius likes freedom and space but we could either find ourselves wanting that to avoid intimacy or we could find ourselves feeling rejected because of this quality. taking time to do the work of healing is key. with venus heading to square mars and both in tense minor aspect to chiron- be aware of wounding triggers arising in relationships and navigate with consciousness <3

the sun in aquarius sextiles jupiter in aries at 8:30pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion and excess. sun/jupiter is a great time to have self confidence, courage and make things happen. our agency and belief in ourselves is bolstered! with the sun in aquarius it is a great time to join forces with others who have common vision and purpose. our hopes and dreams for humanity can be acted upon!


wednesday january 25th-
mercury parallels chiron at 9:05pm- echoing the mercury/chiron square that incoming on friday and forming a Super Aspect between the two between today and friday morning. mercury/chiron is great for deep talks, psychotherapy, dream work and delving into things via our intuition. yet mercury/chiron can also bring up old wounds and pain around intelligence, trusting our instincts and intuition and being able to be in this world but no of it. if communication or thinking gets intense today- see it as an opportunity to do a little shadow work and further your path of healing. pay close attention to the old wounds and pain arising, issues around boundaries, codependence, enabling, projection, addiction, victimization and/or feeling lost or ungrounded. ‘everyone is cracked- that is how the Light gets in’. it is through our cracks and woundeness that we get to experience our own mortality. but it is through remembering that we are Light that we get to experience our Divinity. chiron is the rainbow bridge between the physical and the spiritual, the profane and the sacred, the body and the Spirit/Soul. taking time to work on bridging our own inner opposites and going deep into our wounds, not so we can stay stuck in them- but so we can get to the core to heal them and shift our relationship to them is key!


thursday january 26th-
at 9:33pm venus moves out of aquarius and into pisces- shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from air to water, mind to emotions, detachment to deeply empathetic. venus is exalted in pisces- it’s one of her favorite signs to transit! when we have the lower heart (venus) in the sign of the Higher Heart (pisces)- we have HUGE capacity for Unconditional Love, empathy, sensitivity and even Divine Love. venus in pisces is romantic, idealistic, loving and mystical! just watch out for the shadow of venus in pisces: codependency, lack of boundaries, putting people on pedestals (which they will eventually fall off of) and seeing what you want to see rather than seeing reality on its own terms.


friday january 27th-
at 5:42am mercury in capricorn squares chiron in aries- creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. mercury/chiron brings up old wounds and pain in communication and thinking. it’s super important to THINK before you speak right now. therapy and any kind of inner work/shadow work can be supportive right now as we delve into the wounding that runs us from the subconscious. communications can get intense so be sure to be kind because everyone you meet is fighting a battle. but also be sure to have clear boundaries and stand up for yourself in healthy ways. it’s all about a balance ;) this is the 3rd and final square between these two because of mercury’s retrograde journey- connect the dots back to 12/23 and 1/11 to see the storyline that has unfolded and is now coming to completion.

mercury in capricorn opposes retrograde pallas athena in cancer at 10:22am- creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. the recent mercury retrograde has been a time to question our dogmas, traditions, patriarchal ideas and limited viewpoints. pallas athena has a Bigger Picture perspective and she is able to see the emotional, intuitive and feeling orientation behind these rigid viewpoints and ideas. often when we are rigid it is because there is fear or pain we are trying to block ourselves from feeling. allowing our emotions to inform where our deeper work lies is key.


saturday january 28th-
at 1:58am chiron in aries squares retrograde pallas athena in cancer, creating tension between the Wounded Healer and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. the 3rd and final mercury/chiron square links with pallas to form a tight T-square. this was a theme in the recent Mercury Retrograde journey but this 3rd and final one occurs tightly in just under 24 hours (from early friday morning to very early this morning)- whereas the previous ones were 6-10 days apart. chiron has been squaring pallas since his first square on october 8th 2022. there will be one more on march 19th 2023- just days after mars makes his final square to neptune and moves out of back end shadow, and just days before pluto moves into Aquarius!!! chiron is in the sign of mars and pallas is both the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess- so there can be focus on war, aggression, arguments, combative energy and intense emotions right now. pallas is in cancer so the desire to fight or stand up for family, children and/or country is strong. yet emotions can also be trigger happy and if we act from our wounding instead of our wholeness we can find ourselves creating more trauma and emotional wounding right now. be aware and navigate with care! also pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious about where your deepest healing is wanting to be realized.

the sun in aquarius semisquares neptune in pisces at 12:03pm- creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. this is great for mysticism, inspiration, romance and creativity but it can be out to lunch, ungrounded, idealistic and escapist. pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious.

the sun in aquarius squares the mean nodes of the moon (north node in taurus, south node in scorpio) at 5:20pm – creating a T-square between the conscious self and ego and the nodes of destiny and karma. this can bring turning points- showing us clearly the karmic path we are stuck on and the evolutionary path we are being called towards. dealing with unresolved karma is key if we want to grow and move into new directions. in friendships and groups we are part of- seeing who is stuck in lower vibrations/ego energies versus who is really truly coming from an evolutionary, inspired place is key.


sunday january 29th-
at 8:45pm the sun in aquarius trines mars in gemini- linking the two yang, masculine planets in harmonious ways. this is a great day to set things into motion, take action and make things happen. with both bodies in air signs we can have the conversations that need to be had, hear Truths that need to be heard, and get involved in communities or groups with common vision. we can take the inspiration of aquarius and ACT ON IT with mars. keep an open mind for best results.

mercury in capricorn trines uranus in taurus at 9:16pm- aligning the lower mind with the Higher Mind in expansive ways! pay attention to the thoughts, ideas, inventions, communications and connections incoming into your life right now. aha moments and bolt out of the blue awarenesses or happenstance meetings are divinely inspired/guided. this is the 3rd and final trine between these two- pay attention to what has come in and what you are ready to act on now and go for it!

the aspects today are extra potent as the sun is in the sign of uranus and mars is in the sign of mercury- and each pair are trine each other! there is extra powerful energy to be harnessed today! channel it wisely!


have a blessed week…
