ceres in pisces square the mean nodes 5:20pm, creating tension between the Great Mother asteroid Goddess and the nodes of destiny and karma. this week ceres aligns with neptune and they both semisquare saturn- bringing tension between ideals and reality, mother/matriarchal energy and father/patriarhcal energy. ceres in pisces is self sacrificing, unconditionally loving and forgiving- yet she can have lessons about boundaries, self care, giving to herself first and making sure she is not enabling the immaturity of her ‘children’. the nodes are bringing in some cold hard truths- and being willing to see beyond ideals and dreams so we can assess reality in personal situations, family dynamics and on the world stage is key right now.
tuesday january 19th-
at 12:57am vesta stations retrograde at 21’23 virgo, bringing the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus to a standstill. vesta is in one of the two signs she is very much at home in (the other being pisces). vesta in virgo is devoted to health, embodiment, discernment and service. she is magnifying what needs to be tended to right now- so pay attention! just watch out for the desire to deny personal needs and only focus on purpose and service. self care is key.
pluto in capricorn semisquares juno in sagittarius at 1:40am, creating tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. shadow can be coming to Light in relationships right now- marriage, romantic, business, financial and otherwise. tending to what is karmic in relationships is key- as juno heads to the karmic south node. knowing when to hold and when to fold, when to hang on and do the work to transform and when to let go realizing what is hindering your transformation is the simple act of holding on to something that is no longer (and maybe never was) aligned is key!
at 12:40pm the sun moves out of capricorn and into aquarius, shifting the conscious self and ego from earth to air, yin to yang, stabilizing to freedom loving. the sun in aquarius is outside of the box, revolutionary, radical and eccentric! this sign does not like the status quo and marches to the beat of it’s own drummer! the coming month is a great time to think outside of the box and do things that are wild and differing! just watch out for being so addicted to be different that you cannot be like others- and also watch out for fear of commitment that pretends to be independence.
mercury in aquarius trines mean north node in gemini at 2:48pm, aligning the planet of communication with the north node of destiny and evolution! mercury is the ruler of the north node so there is a lovely synergy here. pay attention to all communications, thoughts, ideas and revelations coming forth today. community connection and collaboration is supported right now. the path to growth is to think WE not me- to be curious and open and not close minded and self righteous.
wednesday january 20th-
at 8:57am saturn in aquarius semisquares neptune in pisces, creating tension between the Lord of Karma and Father of Time and the planet of mysticism, compassion and illusion. saturn is all about reality and what IS – whereas neptune is about ideals and what is possible in dreams and visions. saturn is in rulership and so is neptune- but saturn rules almost everything in the skies right now (via dispositorship) whereas neptune stands alone governing only ceres who is in his sign. being aware of where we might be checking out, escaping, using things/people/substances to be in denial or avoid reality is key. but equally so we want to see where we may be so mired in 3D reality that we are missing out on listening to our dreams and intuition. compassion, altruism, kindness and service are not signs of weakness but of strength. getting real about where we tend to default rather than find balance is key. if you are too stuck in your root- go to your crown! if you are stuck in your crown- deal with your roots. both/and is the path forward.
mercury in aquarius semisextiles neptune in pisces at 10:04am, linking the mind with the planet of intuition and mysticism. this is great for creativity, compassion, service and selflessness. communicate ideals but balance them with practicality.
at 12:38pm mars cojoins uranus 6’44 taurus, linking the will and drive with the Rebel and Revolutionary! mars/uranus is a powerful aspect. if the will and ego is serving change and evolution this can be absolutely amazing. the key is we have to make sure we are not coming from ego, reactivity and impulsivity as actions taken/words said in haste can cost us. uranus just stationed direct at 6’43 taurus so mars is activating a now direct uranus- bringing energy and forward movement to the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. the Highest focus of this energy is open up to greater resource and take action that supports self worth and self Love. this can also be great for innovative new things regarding the earth and environment. yet it can also speak to earth changes and destabilizing events. use this energy wisely- be willing to embrace change and better yet bet the agent of it!
thursday january 21st-
mercury in aquarius semisquares chiron in aries at 4:47pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. communication and thinking can be run by wounds and pain right now. being aware of what drives us- both fears and obsessions- is key. using chiron’s energy to open up our awareness is possible right now- just make sure you are not being impulsive and reactive in speech and thinking.
at 7:35pm neptune cojoins ceres at 18’58 pisces, aligning the planet of mysticism and sacrifice with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. neptune/ceres is the ultimate sacrificial mother. she gives and gives for her children- and lets go of her own needs in the process. in part this is the path of Motherhood- a mom giving up sleep to tend to a hungry baby. a mother spending her money on things for her child before herself. the shadow of this is when the Mother gives and gives until she is so depleted she can no longer care for her children. too much giving without boundaries, too much selflessness without healthy selfishness depletes. in family dynamics there can be things arising around Mother and Mother wounds or Mother wounding. in the world at large there can be things happening with Mother Earth, the oceans, leakages and toxicity. pay attention to what is coming up relationally, emotionally and environmentally right now.

at 4:46am the sun in aquarius sesquiquadrates the north node in gemini, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the node of destiny and evolution. the sun in aquarius is non conformist and rebellious. as a saturn ruled sign aquarius thinks it knows all! the north node in gemini reminds us that our growth is connected to our ability come back to beginners mind and admit we do not know it all- so that our minds are open to learning and not closed to new information that might be revelatory. a mind is like a parachute- it works best when it’s open!

at 10:38am venus in capricorn quincuxes the mean north node in gemini, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and node of destiny and evolution. venus in capricorn values tradition and security- while the north node in gemini reminds us that growth comes by letting go, being open, curious and taking risks. watch out for holding onto the past at the expense of the future today!
mars in taurus squares jupiter in aquarius at 11:49pm, creating tension between the Will and Warrior planet and the planet of expansion and excess. mars/jupiter can be great for taking action and setting things into motion but the two together in tense aspect can also exacerbate reactivity, anger, aggression and power/control dynamics. if our desire for freedom comes at the expense of our relationships and commitments upsets can arise today.
saturday january 23rd-
at 11:29am the sun in aquarius semsiquares neptune in pisces, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet that dissolves ego boundaries. this can be lovely for spirituality, intuition and creativity – but the tense nature of the aspect can exacerbate delusion, illusion, deception, confusion and addiction. make sure you are not using things to escape- and make sure you are willing to see yourself as clearly as you think you are seeing others ;)
venus in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces at 11:49am, linking the lower heart and Higher Heart in beautiful ways! this is a lovely aspects for romance, compassion, altruism and being of service. Unconditional Love is present right now! yet with venus triggering the neptune/nodal T square (exact 1/5 and 1/26)- we need to be willing to discern between what is real and what is not? where do we need to take the rose colored glasses off? where do we need to see what is right in front of us? an open heart needs to be balanced with healthy boundaries. tuning into both and working on which ever one needs support is recommend right now.
at 7:01pm the sun cojoins saturn at 4’20 aquarius, linking the conscious self and ego with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. sun/saturn can be grounding, masterful and disciplined but there can also be a push/pull energy playing out between doing what we need versus doing what is expected of us or doing what we committed to doing. using saturn’s energy to get real, focused and masterful is ideal. watch out for depression, repression and lethargy.
