Time for another astrology update.
Let’s get started with the Sun entering Aquarius on January 19 at 3:40 PM EST. As of this writing we already have three planets in the sign of Aquarius and now the Sun joins in. The Sun in Aquarius may inspire many things and some of the harsher areas have been activated already. Rebellion and especially political revolutions. People fighting for change. The rise and fall of governments, organizations and groups.
It is also free thinking, engaging in innovative activities to inspire change and promote humanitarian causes. With all the planets currently in this sign and there is more to come we should be prepared to embrace the changes that are coming, of course some people will choose to fight the changes. We always have freedom of choice.
The details of what this looks like will be similar but also a bit different for each of us because we all have a different outlook on life.
Are you open for some things to change in your life?
Are you open for some things to change in your life? If so, take a step toward what you want to change, take a risk on yourself. If you are fearful of change and know something needs to shift and you do nothing, the pressure of that will be clear to you. You will feel uncomfortable, stressed out and not happy with much of anything, stuck. If you do sense these things than that it is a sure sign you are not doing something you want to do deep down inside.
At some point if the soul genuinely wants a change it will happen. I recommend you examine that area of life you know needs a shift and do something, even the smallest of activity toward your change or goal will help, otherwise you will feel even more restricted and it will be our own doing.
We also have some heavy hitting transits over the next 10 days and well as the Full Moon in Leo.
On January 20 inauguration day of course, we have one of the most Volatile aspects and we can have on any day. This is the conjunction of Mars and Uranus in the sign of Taurus. We’ve already seen what it looks like back on January 6th when Mars was at an extreme degree and began what will be a stressful January.
Now that Mars is with Uranus, we may very well see more riots and violence. I hope not but that is what these transits tend to represent. On this day at the time of the Inauguration the Moon will be at the 29th degree of Aries which is where Mars was on January 6 when we had the violence irrupt in the nation’s capital.
The Moon will enter the sign of Taurus just before the exact connection between Mars and Uranus 3:38 PM EST. With the Moon now in Taurus on January 20th it will then square off with the planets in Aquarius just as Mars is about to do. In the afternoon and evening the Moon will square the Sun then Saturn creating more stress and tension.
Moon conjunct Uranus, Mars, square Jupiter
January 21st the Moon will conjunct Uranus and Mars as well as square Jupiter all before dawn. This can go many different ways. Impulsive behavior, more stress and riots in the streets or we could step back take a well-deserved break from the world at large and look at our own lives. If you know me and my writing you know I am not big on pushing things that promote fear. However today I had to speak the facts of these transits and you have read them now.
I also want us to be aware that we don’t have to engage in these energies. You can use these transits as motivation in areas of your life that you have felt stuck, like I mentioned in the beginning of this article. If you are having a hard time seeing how you can use these transits to your benefit than please book session and we will figure it out together.
Mars square to Jupiter
Moving on, the next aspect I want to cover is Mars square to Jupiter on January 23rd EST. *The square aspect is present to get our attention, it represents stress of some kind, so we know where to look and then make the shift that needs to occur.
When Mars and Jupiter are connected, we can feel goal oriented and motivated, but also overly impulsive, so watch your step.
On January 28 we have Venus conjunct Pluto as well as the Full Moon in Leo. The Venus Pluto conjunction in Capricorn feels grounded and solid. Venus in Capricorn is practical and logical no frills at the moment. With Pluto she deepens her commitments, whatever they may be. This feels like a little bit of normalcy in a chaotic month.
Full Moon at 2:16 PM EST is at 9 degrees of Leo. The Sun also at 9 degrees but in Aquarius and we have Mars at 10 degrees of Taurus, Uranus is at 6 degrees. What does all of this mean? We have what is know as a Fixed “T” square. This Full Moon in Leo connects closely with Mars and Uranus dredging up whatever went on last week.
With the overload of fixed signs we need to let go, release, break free from restrictions and old rules, whether they are self-imposed or otherwise.
The lighter side of this Full Moon is Leo wants to play and have fun, engage in activities that you are passionate about and where you can use your creativity. I have more to cover about this Full Moon and the Lunar Family it belongs to which I do in my membership platform Patreon. Please join me there at level 2 as we go deeper into the mean of this Full Moon.
Mercury Retrograde January 30
We finish this month with Mercury in Aquarius readying to retrograde and that happens on January 30 at 10:52 AM EST. The day of, before and after is when Mercury is stationary. On these days we may be feeling stuck, not able to change our minds or allow for freer thinking. Give yourself and others some time and space to adjust to the change in direction of Mercury. Doing this will prevent all the stereo-typical scenarios from playing out so strongly. Mercury in Aquarius loves to think outside the box, create, make new laws, engage in higher thought, navigate new terrain, explore and learn. I am creating a video about this Mercury retrograde over the weekend and will post it the week of January 18th. My media page and You-Tube holds all my videos here are the links.
This year Mercury will retrograde in all of the air signs and it starts now. We are being asked to step up in regard to what we think and believe. Break from outdated processes. Shift how we gather and share information. How we are now using technology will change and possibly A big surge in artificial intelligence.
The Air signs and especially Aquarius wants us out of our comfort zones as we create a new world over the coming years.
Thank you once again for reading and follow my work. May all be blessed and well. Dorothy
