Friday 1/1/2021 & the Weekend: Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Here’s a recap of The Forecast for the next few days:

  • FRIDAY: Moon in Leo continues to party on, dudes — with a surprise or a shock around 2:25 AM ET, as it is squared by rebel Uranus. Note your dreams this morning, as Mercury (how we need to think and communicate) sextiles Neptune at 6:17 AM ET. This is a fine day to visualize your New Year’s resolutions.
  • SATURDAY: And still the festive flow continues, as the Leo Moon trines Venus at 6:23 AM ET and then trines Mars at 5 PM ET. Today — just maybe — we can all get along.  Moon goes void until 8:12 PM ET, when it enters Virgo. Time to clean up the confetti and get organized.
  • SUNDAY: More Moon in Virgo needs to make things right. A harmony with Uranus at 8:11 AM ET encourages innovation and diversity — and that’s a good thing, because today is the start of the 117th Congress (which I’ve written about in the Feb/Mar 2021 issue of Mountain Astrologer). The Virgo Moon’s drive for perfection flows through the day, in harmony with the Capricorn Sun.

I’m following Beth Owl’s Daughter’s sage advice on how to get the first day of the New Year off to an excellent start. Keeping it short and sweet — with only one aptly timed news item to report. Reflecting the potential of this week’s exact square between Venus (women, arts) and Neptune (sublime, charity), it was apt to receive notice that the art collection of  renowned New York philanthropist Hester Diamond would be auctioned off at the end of January. The write-up on Sotheby’s website (with a link to the catalog) begins:

Dynamic, unpredictable, and incomparable, Hester Diamond was a fearless and visionary collector.

Of course she was. Ms. Diamond was born on December 10, 1928. She was a high-flying Sagittarius, with a Jupiter-Neptune trine (visionary potential) and an exact Mars-Uranus square (“fearless; dynamic, unpredictable and incomparable”). Astrology is amazing. As was Ms.Diamond.
