More of the same sorting, perfecting, correcting energy from yesterday, blessed by the afterglow of an exact trine between loving Venus and generous Jupiter at 2:26AM ET. This aspect can bring out the best in people; it can also tend to be a bit lazy and indulgent — but in a joyful, relaxed way. Hey, it’s Friday. Hooray! Let that mood carry you until 7:27PM ET, when Moon goes void on an opinionated, supercharged connection from aggressive Mars. A clash of wills about details — or a surge of passion seeking release. Which will it be?
Chill through the evening. Moon enters people-pleasing Libra at 4:35AM, encouraging social connections. Wanna shop? Indulge in something that makes you feel beautiful. Be advised of the potential for surprises and flashes of insights around 1:08PM ET, as Moon is opposed by rebel Uranus…followed by a challenge from potent Pluto at 5:33PM ET, which may heighten emotions for a few hours.
Sunday is notable for nebulous Neptune turning direct at 2:53AM ET. If you’ve been turning inward over the past few months searching for vision and spiritual guidance, all the wisdom you have discovered may now be directed outward. You will feel this shift more than most if you have a planet or angle around 0 degrees of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius….or if you were born on the first day of those signs. If you are in this category, you’ll be happy to know that the weird, spacy, foggy feelings you’ve been struggling with will soon be lifted. If you’ve been channeling that spaciness into art, healing, spirit or selfless service, you’re probably feeling less frustrated than others who have trying to bluster and fight to get ahead.
Sunday is also notable for two sweet connections to the Moon from Jupiter and Venus, a loving vibe that can carry you through the day. Enjoy the break in the action. We are in the dark side of the Moon, a time to wrap up whatever amazing insight you got from the “wake-up call” that began this lunar cycle. Moon goes void at 12:13AM ET on Monday…and enters Scorpio at 6:10AM ET. Tuesday marks the New Moon at 5:08PM ET — and it’s a doozy of a solar eclipse.
I am observing the indulgent Venus-Jupiter trine and Mercury retrograde by taking a break from the headlines. Have I looked at the Inauguration Day chart to see what the next four years may bring? Of course. And we’ll get to it later. Meanwhile, I have been sifting and sorting through boxes of letters and diaries from dearly departed grandmothers. One happy discovery was the name of the town in Italy where one set of great-grandparents were born. It is so small that years ago, I couldn’t even find it on a map. But now, with the internet, this town of 995 inhabitants has its own website. And this is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
Mercury retrogrades are wonderful opportunities for REconnection…and REmembrance of things past…
Have a great weekend!
