Stay Open to the New and Unexpectedly Different


This week’s headline items: the New Moon in Capricorn becomes exact Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning, Uranus ends its 5-month Retrograde phase (in Taurus) on Thursday very early morning, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase on Friday; and the first of the “big” Uranus Squares becomes exact on Sunday early evening.


There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Wednesday very early morning (for almost 9.5 hours), Thursday early morning (for almost 37 hours), and Sunday late evening (for almost 3.5 hours).


Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention:

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, Jan. 11th:

Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius and VoC until 8:30am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into ambitious, goal-oriented Capricorn. It will journey there until Wednesday late morning/early afternoon. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn — and it will be transiting through Aquarius, making this a great time to take a look at our visions for humanity, and at anything we would like to accomplish long-term within our communities (locally or online).

It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our various networks and connections to like-minded people; as best as you can, be authentic about your affiliations: Do they truly resonate with your personal vision for the future — as it stands now, rather than what it was 5 or 10 years ago?

Does participation in those groups or networks align with who you are now, and with where you see yourself 5 years from now? What do you truly want to commit yourself to? This Moon placement also starts the build up towards the New Moon (exact Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning).

Monday early afternoon, a Mercury/Jupiter alignment in almost 5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact at 12:19pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Saturday (Jan. 9th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening (Jan. 13th). This alignment brings optimism and a tendency to talk and think more. It favors exploring our visions for the future, submitting applications and forms, and test-taking.

We can more readily exercise good judgment, be more philosophical in our thinking, and bring wholeness and order to our communities and connections with like-minded people. There is a sense of mental expansion — we see our vision for humanity (or particular group causes) as a source of adventure and personal growth.

We are optimistic and enthusiastic, and things tend to go well as a result — it’s all about thinking big and innovating. What if expanding our concept of group consciousness, the collective, and “one for all and all for one” helped us be more peaceful and calm? What if that in turn helped us manifest our desires?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 2-8 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Mercury’s movements and aspects; Jupiter rules Sagittarius) 

Also, Monday early afternoon, an opportune Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 12:23pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Sunday (Jan. 10th) on; it will remain strong until Tuesday evening (Jan. 12th). We have an opportunity to bring healing energy to our concrete mind and to our thoughts. We also have a chance to heal insecurities in our verbal, in-person, social media or email interactions.

We are better able now to tune out that automatic/critical inner voice, in favor of more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. By bringing love and understanding to our thinking processes, we have a chance to move beyond entrenched habits, like “impatient self-talk”, or the use of aggressive language (swear words for example).

Here’s a few good “chew toys” for your mind at this time: What was your family’s attitude towards communication? Toward speaking up for yourself? What if you tried a kinder approach for a bit? Does your inner dialog really have to repeat what they said when you were 3 or 5 years old? What if you tried using a gentler voice for the next ten minutes or so?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 3-7 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

And last but not least, Monday early afternoon, a long-term, opportune Jupiter/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 12:48pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Jan. 1st on; it will remain strong until next week Wednesday evening (Jan. 20th). It’s an opportunity to bring healing to wounds around social conditioning or our belief systems.

We get a chance to grow and heal insecurities around being “too different”, or around what we believe to be true about ourselves and others; this healing happens much faster when we can open to forgiving ourselves and others. As best as you can, bring compassion and understanding to yourself, to others, and to those past experiences that wounded you.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-7 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius? If so, you will be…
