Fast Forward Motion — Forecast for Dec. 31st, 2018 – Jan. 6th, 2019


This week’s headline items: the Uranus station intensifies on Monday (and Mars changes signs from Pisces to Aries that evening), Mercury changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn on Friday, the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn becomes exact on Saturday, and Uranus comes to a halt on Sunday afternoon.

There will only be two Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early evening (for 10.5 hours) and Friday early afternoon (for a little over an hour).


Now, this week’s Forecast:

Monday (Dec. 31st): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day. It journeys there until Wednesday early morning. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s thus an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

In Scorpio, the Moon tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can be stormy — a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we “work” the energies 🙂

Manipulation and paranoia are the lower vibrations of this aspect, so best as you are able, be straightforward — act in good faith and assume it in others. Best of all, be truly present to the fluctuations of your feelings — no matter if they’re “polite” or “timely”. Feelings aren’t facts, but they are information — and heeding them will help you embrace all of who you are.

Know thyself — and love thyself — you shall be set free. Remember: Love connects us to the Power within; Fear causes “Force” to show up — and that’s ultimately what disempowers us and others.

Monday late evening, at 9:20pm EST, Mars changes signs from sensitive, creative Pisces, to pioneering, enthusiastic Aries. Mars will journey through this fiery sign until Feb. 14th, 2019. Mars has an almost two year cycle; it last traveled through Aries in late January until early March 2017. Was there a significant new beginning for you back then?

For those next six and a half weeks, we will have a strong drive for fast forward motion; our first instinct is for action. Spontaneity is an asset, as are simplicity and innovation. We like the fresh start; there will very likely be new ideas, pioneering action and “fresh” projects abounding.

We enjoy challenges with this placement, so we are happy to take on something bigger than usual — maybe a new, more demanding job or relationship. Our physical energy is great, but we may lose our initial enthusiasm quickly.

We are not likely to beat around the bush now; a direct approach is definitely favored. Things to watch out for: impatience; getting irritated by other people’s indirectness; being insensitive to other people’s needs or approaches.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries? If so, you will feel quite energized by this placement. Your physical energy will be tremendous, you are going to feel unstoppable. The only thing to watch out for: physical burnout.

Also on Monday, the Uranus station intensifies in 28.5 degrees of Aries, until Jan. 11th, 2019. It will come to a complete halt on Sunday (Jan. 6th) in 28.5 degrees of Aries, ending its 5-month retrograde phase (more about that on Sunday…). When an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced, and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet’s energy picks up speed again around Jan. 14th (when the station phase has ended).

Definitely expect the unexpected. Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional structures and moving towards a new future — one that serves others as well as ourselves. Its keyword is “Freedom”: this aspect provides an opportunity to discover how free we actually feel. So… how free do you feel? 😉

As best as you can for the next two weeks, pull whatever is “in your face” even closer and take a good long look at it: our intuition will be very strong and deliver sudden insights and ideas, especially around what needs to change in our lives. What if you expressed your individuality to the fullest? What does the “larger vision” look like? Where is the obstacle?

Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet — so don’t be surprised by interruptions or short-term failures in these areas. Group activities are likewise ruled by Uranus, so these will move more to the forefront of awareness.

As best as you can during this aspect, stay open and flexible, go with the flow — and pay attention to messages from the Universe 😉

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Aquarius? Or perhaps your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…
