monday january 25th-
at 2:29am the sun in aquarius sextiles chiron in aries, linking the conscious self and ego with the Wounded Healer. deep healing is possible today in relationships with others and in relationship with ourselves. accepting ourselves as we are and believing in our Light and what we have to genuinely offer into the world is supported right now!
tuesday january 26th-
at 4:48am the sun in aquarius squares uranus in taurus, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. this can bring sudden and unexpected energy which can be freeing and liberating but it can also be chaotic and ungrounded. staying open to change and not being rigid and dogmatic is recommended right now ;)
mercury in aquarius semisextiles pluto in capricorn at 6:35am, linking the mind and intellect with the planet of depth, intensity and transformation. this is great astrology for therapy, research, investigation and diving deep! mercury is in innovative, illuminating aquarius while pluto is excavating the patriarchal shadows. since this aspect occurs in the early morning hours pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious.
at 6:13am neptune in pisces squares the true nodes of the moon, forming a T square between the planet of idealism and illusion and the nodal axis of destiny and karma. the karmic south node in sagittarius is magnifying the shadow tendencies of hubris, self righteousness, dogma, and super size me culture. shadow sadge thinks it is right, others are wrong and they are the teacher or leader everyone needs to listen to. the north node in gemini is a reminder that the path of growth and evolution requires that we come back to beginner’s mind. being curious and open and willing to see where are not right or do not see the Truth is key. the gemini/sagitttarius axis is all about lower mind and Higher Mind, personal perspective and the Bigger Picture. with neptune square both is really easy to see what we want to see, justify our actions and perceptions and truly be way off in our perceptions. it’s easy to deceive or be deceived right now- so do some honest self check ins and also question things you hear from others- personally but also collectively (the media, etc…). there’s a lot going on behind the smoke screen and if we really want to be free we have to be willing to see through illusions even if it shocks and destabilizes things! the mean node square to neptune was 1/5 so this whole first month of 2021 we would all do well to cultivate discernment, take the rose colored glasses off, deepen our integrity and commitment to seeing/owning/living the Truth!
wednesday january 27th-
at 1:11am venus in capricorn squares eris in aries, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty who values stability and security in capricorn- and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos who values upheaval and change at any cost. venus/eris can be quite activating- and from today to tomorrow as she cojoins with pluto (triggering the pluto/eris square) there can be A LOT up right now in relationships, finances, work/career and anything that is operated out of tradition, expectation or obligation in our lives. what needs to change in your life and where are you resisting it? now’s the time to get on board with your evolution! where capricorn is is where you need to detox and let go.
thursday january 28th-
at 8:18am venus cojoins pluto 25’06 capricorn, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of the Underworld. this is a potent conjunction that can amplify passion, sexuality and intimacy but can also dredge up all kinds of darker energies like jealousy, possessiveness, power/control dynamics, manipulation and more. venus is triggering the pluto/eris square yesterday through today. it’s important to pay attention to what is old paradigm, toxic, stagnant and stuck in our lives. where are we holding onto the old out of safety and security. where are we resisting change? where are we adhering to patriarchal standards of who we should be, what we should do and how the world is? this is a time of stripping away and getting to the Truth of matters- in relationships, finances, our values, self worth and self Love.
the full moon at 9’06 leo is exact at 11:17am- marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the powerful and intense new moon in capricorn conjunct pluto and square eris on 1/12/21. this full moon illuminates and exacerbates the duality between self focus and community focus, ego needs and what the collective needs. leo is the sign of the sun and at best it leads from the heart and at worst it leads from the ego. the full moon is opposite saturn, the sun and jupiter all in aquaraius- reminding us that the thing that stops us from fully moving into the new Age of Aquarius is egotism, narcissism and the idea that only one person/group of people/culture/religion gets all the power and resource. the new aquarius energy speaks to collective care, social justice, community relationships and round table leadership. the old paradigm has been a pyramid scheme but pyramids are crumbling!!! this full moon forms a T square with mars conjunct uranus- sudden and unexpected things are happening and truths are coming to Light! for more info on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact.
the sun cojoins jupiter at 9’21 aquarius at 5:39pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion and excess. sun/jupiter can be positive, optimistic, and expansive! we are embracing the possibilities and enacting change! anything involving community, activism, collective care or social justice can be supported today.
friday january 29th-
at 12:14am mars cojoins mean black moon lilith at 11’08 taurus- aligning the Will, Warrior and Drive with the fierce Dark Feminine. mars and lilith have been in the midst of activating the fast approaching Saturn/urarus square (1st is on 2/17) and now they join forces. for reference mars triggered saturn/uranus 1/13-1/20- lilith has triggered 9/11 (when she was in arise) to 12/22. jupiter has also been triggering saturn/uranus from 12/21 to 1/17- all gearing up for a big even mid february! (more on this in a blog or video to come). mars/lilith can be great for taking action from a place of depth and power but it can also exacerbate power/control dynamics and activate deep dark shadows. the last mars/lilith conjunction was 9/22/20- due to mars retrograde we have another one happening months later but this time in taurus. taurus is fixed earth- the light side of taurus is embodied, patient, abundant and materially focused. the shadow arises as entitled, hoarding, resistant to change, lazy and addicted to the sensual aspects of life. we want to be aware of our own shadow tendencies right now. as mars is involved having a healthy outlet for anger and rage is key- if you act out in it impulsively or reactively it can cost you! if you repress and deny it it can explode out in uncontrollable ways or manifest as projections (other people living the energy in extreme ways) or passive aggression. as this aspect is in the middle of the night hours (for PST) pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious!
mercury in aquarius semisextiles venus in capricorn at 9:19am, linking the mind and heart in expansive ways. both mercury and venus are in saturn ruled signs- so we are supported in having heart to heart talks with others (or with ourselves) about reality, what is, what is possible and what is not. mercury in Aquarius is visionary and forward thinking! venus in capricorn is committed, responsible and hard working. finding balance between the new and the old, progressive ideas and traditions is key right now.
at 9:28pm uranus in taurus semisquares ceres in pisces, creating tension between the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. uranus can bring sudden and unexpected things into home/family situations, with mothers or children, safety and security issues and/or the environment. ceres in pisces is the Unconditionally loving Mother who will sacrifice everything for her children. Uranus is reminding her that she needs to wake up to radical self Love and ensure she is taking care of herself and filling her own cup before she fills the cups of others. this metaphor can be strong right now- so tune into if you overgive or if you overtake and what the right balance is.
saturday january 30th-
mercury stations retrograde at 26’29 aquarius, taking the messenger planet into his first Underworld journey of the year. mercury retrograde is a time to rethink, review and revise and in Aquarius we are focusing on science, inventions, innovation, community, collective and progressive changes. this is a time to go over the past and see what needs to be addressed in friendships, communities and social groups- as well as regarding our hopes and dreams. for more info on this mercury retrograde check the weekly forecasts posted each week <3
sunday january 31st-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in earthy virgo all day- helping us to focus on health, well being, details, organization and efficiency. just watch out for analysis paralysis and thinking about your emotions rather than feeling them ;)
have a blessed week…
