Love, drama, and adventure light up the skies this week, with Venus and Mars causing fiery energy and ending with a special and powerful Full Moon.
Jupiter is making a challenging square to Neptune on Sunday the 13th, and it will be hanging around all the way to September. Jupiter is ready for an adventure, and wants to open your belief system to a much larger view of the world. Neptune is a visionary, but often just doesn’t know what that vision is, or if they do, how to bring it into the mundane world. The challenge, then, is to expand your belief system this year to bring a higher vision into the world.
Also on Sunday, Mercury aligns with Saturn, an energy you have been feeling all last week. Write down your long-term plans and get organized.
Pay attention to dreams or meditate on Monday morning as spiritual Neptune opens your intuitive side. The rest of the workweek flows along smoothly.
Friday morning is especially good for communicating in all types of relationships. The 18th of January is the day to “fall in love,” and gives you the green light to start a new relationship, or at best, to fire up an old one. However, by the end of the day Friday, you either want to be left alone or just get away from annoying people; perhaps the two of you.
With the Moon in Cancer on Saturday it’s an excellent time for sharing a meal with someone in your closest inner circle.
On Sunday the Sun moves out of earthy Capricorn into airy Aquarius. This is a no-holes-barred energy where restlessness and surprises abound and your perspective can swing from genius to somewhere out in space. This Sun changes opposes the Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse marking a time when it’s best to use your unconscious mind and visualizations to bring personal projects and events to a conclusion with a big bang. This Supermoon is bigger and brighter than a normal full moon.
This is the last of a series of eclipses in Leo and Aquarius, from the spring of 2017, and they will not be back until 2026. Aquarius has to do with holding the higher ideal and creating win-win environments for the collective good. Leo steps into leadership and opens people’s hearts to find creative solutions. Use this energy to get clear on where your heart is engaged and where it is not. Then, release those people from your life where your heart is not connected any longer which allows you to open up to new friends and associations. Something new is coming your way, for sure.
This Leo Full Moon is being challenged by eccentric Uranus urging you to step out of your comfort zone to explore new opportunities. Make it a quiet evening and put off any relationship conversations. Allow the impulse of the Uranus energies to bring you fun and relaxation.
Freedom-loving Uranus ended his retrograde cycle on Sunday. Uranus has bee retrograde since August 2018. Although you may not see it in the outer world, it definitely gives you the feeling that you are ready for something fresh.
On Monday, love and money Venus enters adventurous Sagittarius until early February. This adds to the feeling that it is time to take a risk on yourself in order to manifest your needs and desires. Be sure to keep your love and money options open, and watch out for over-spending.
Opportunities may be presented, but fizzle out shortly after they appear unless you have already prepared the way to ground yourself and bring them into manifestation. This type of Venus energy will trend into February, and it’s a good time for experiencing new adventures without investing too much money.
Early morning Tuesday brings mental challenges, be careful and don’t force your ideas on others and don’t drive too fast.
The next challenge this week is on Friday when the Sun aligns with death and rebirth Pluto, the planet of the unconscious world. Because this energy was in the recent solar eclipse New Moon, you have been feeling it for days. As the Sun joins Pluto on January 11th, make time to meditate and go deep within. Stand in your power and be ready to release that which is a part of your past. This promises to be a day of major transformation.
Moon in Aries on Saturday tells you to get your body moving; exercise, dance, yoga-whatever gets your blood circulating. Saturday also brings the first of three Jupiter-Neptune squares. Don’t allow these rose-colored glasses to see only the good in everything. This misplaced optimism can be a bit dangerous. Please consider yourself warned that you could be tempted to take on something completely unrealistic.
On New Year’s Day, the moon is in private Scorpio and the Sun aligns with Saturn. This is an excellent combination for deep level inner work, including making “hold yourself accountable” commitments for the coming year.
The central theme for January’s opening is cloudy skies. The Sun is overcast because of its annual meeting with Saturn and a powerful total solar eclipse at the new Moon on January 5th.
On Wednesday, January 2nd the Saturn/Sun connection carries news that the party’s over and it’s time to call it a day. It’s time to take down your Holiday decorations, clean up, and take responsibility for your past actions.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the moon moves into highly social Sagittarius. This is especially strong on Thursday when there is a fun, mental aspect between talkative Mercury and out-of-the-ordinary Uranus. Go out and try something new.
Just in case you weren’t paying attention, this energy is repeated on Saturday Jan. 5th. There is a total solar eclipse in Capricorn. It will be interesting to watch USA relations with China as the path of the eclipse starts in NE China and moves part way across the Pacific Ocean, embracing the Philippines and Hawaii. We have been feeling the effects of this energy for a couple months now. The energy tends to be serious in tone because five of the ten planets are in responsible, hard-working Capricorn.
Although the first New Moon of 2019 is a dark, quiet time when the seeds of new beginnings can be planted, the intensity of the energy of this eclipse – which is in close connection with Saturn and Pluto, turns this energy into a whistle blowing stop sign. It’s time to reflect on the past, your actions and emotions, but not for rushing into the future.
This week is not the time to begin something new, but provides a convenient excuse to wait a while before you begin your New Year’s resolutions. Set some long-term goals and include deadlines to make certain you get them done.
Remember, Pluto is involved in this combination, and the god of the underworld demands you release anything that takes away your power, be it things, people, attitudes or beliefs.
Saturn is also tied to this eclipse telling us it’s best to work towards the long term rather than expecting immediate gratification. Mercury just moved into Capricorn until January 23rd, so make a concrete plan, write it down and put dates to be completed on your calendar.
Freedom-loving Uranus ends his retrograde cycle on Sunday and has been retrograde since August 2018. Uranus promises to shake things up a bit. Although you may not see it in the outer world, it definitely gives you the feeling that you are ready for something fresh. Uranus is getting ready to make its first sign shift in seven years, moving out of Aries and into Taurus. This will happen in late March.
Uranus bring about sudden and unexpected changes and this earthy sign rules security, housing, beauty, and money issues. Some of the surprises will show us what’s ahead for technology, our weather patterns as well as the world economy.
This week brings us two minor upsets and a last-minute sign change on New Year’s Eve.
There’s a tricky Mercury/Neptune square on Monday, the 24th that can distort and confuse conversations. If your deliveries are late or delayed, expect some problems. On Christmas Eve, transportation planet Mercury makes a challenge to Neptune. Be aware, and careful of both drunken drivers and drivers who just are not paying attention.
Although there’s is a minor mental and transportation challenge on Christmas Eve, the Moon in heart-opening Leo on Christmas Day makes everything upsetting burn away with the Moon-Jupiter fire trine. There should be no unpleasantness and this warmth coming from the Universe promises a happy celebration.
For shoppers on December 26th, the Moon is in her quite void of course phase in the morning hours. Astrologers generally suggest avoiding important purchases or taking important actions when the Moon is not making relationships to other planets. If you must shop in those hours, save the receipt.
The rest of the week is pretty easy, with a social Libra Moon on Friday and Saturday. Friday afternoon has a gentle relationship between relationship planet Venus and go to deeper levels Pluto, a great time to go to deeper emotional levels in your significant relationships.
Saturday, the 29th brings us a quick Sun/Moon square that could increase your tensions and stress levels, but it passes by quickly.
New Year’s Eve includes an emotionally intense Scorpio Moon with aggressive Mars moving into physical Aries will get everyone moving. Opening your mind to spiritual mindedness is a good thing to do under this planetary aspect. Accept all of our many blessings from above and know that although this energy cannot be seen, it does exist, for sure. As the clock strikes midnight, take a moment to remember and reflect on the people and experiences that have touched and warmed your heart over the past 12 months. Mentally send each one a warm and loving thank you. That includes you Max. Wishing everyone, love, peace, abundance and safety as we welcome in 2019. Happy New Year!
Everything seems to be in alignment and on track for the upcoming Holiday week as we celebrate the Winter Solstice, along with two trines and a very lucky and happy conjunction. Also, the Sun changes signs and moves into Capricorn.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
With the Moon in Aries on Monday, you can open other minds up to new ideas and new methods, or just hit the gym for some physical exercise. Tuesday and Wednesday are the hard workdays, so pay attention to practical matters, including your wallet, shopping, baking, and wrapping the gifts.
The Sun trines Uranus on Thursday, which can prove to be very exciting; this energy brings bright flashes of insight, increases your intuition, and encourages you to jump out of your comfort zone.
The always exciting news is the Winter Solstice on Friday, December 21. This is one of the four most powerful days of the year, and the first day of Winter. This is the day when the Sun enters Capricorn and the Light begins to return to Earth. It’s the last seasonal change for 2018 and brings us the longest night of the year. The energies of the Winter Solstice makes the Sun appear to “stand still,” making this the perfect time to light a candle and give thanks – for the power of the Earth, our Solar System and nature to renew itself every year.
At this last month of 2018, a relaxing and beautiful Venus/Neptune trine brings a bounty of love and harmony to the Winter Solstice. Be aware of a minor Mercury/Jupiter conjunction at the same time that could create an overly optimistic and/or know-it-all attitude that could cast a negative tone to communications.
Because Mercury and Jupiter are aligned, and the Moon is in talkative Gemini, you can bet that there will be plenty of conversation and ideas thrown around. The question is which of those ideas will find a way to become manifest, or will you feel mentally overloaded with so many options that your brain shuts down? Now this is not necessarily a bad thing, because the New Year is a great time to explore your options.
What’s coming up for the next three months is a bit of a jumble, meaning that there is no one well defined thing you can say about the first quarter of 2019, except for the rare eclipses. Since nothing can be pinpointed, this usually means that you can expect a wide variety of activities rather than one dominant theme.
The Full Moon comes on the heels of Winter Solstice, the following day, Saturday, December 22. Communications planet Mercury and “do it big” Jupiter are aligned in let’s go and do it big Sagittarius. These two are ready to take on the world. Although you may already have too many items on your to-do list, it would be great if you could block out some time to journal your ideas for the up coming year. Be sure to make them big under this optimistic combination.
Because there are planets being challenged by fantasy-oriented Neptune, understand that some of those ideas will be your illusions running astray, yet some will actually be called visionary. Time will tell which is which! There is a theme to this Full Moon because the spiritual destiny points called the “Nodes of the Moon” are at the end degrees of Cancer and Capricorn while the Full Moon is at the beginning of these same signs. This represents final endings and new beginnings.
Look at beginnings and endings occurring in your life right now. Cancer wants security and nurturing. Capricorn wants to be responsible yet have healthy boundaries. Look at your emotional responsibilities and also your emotional boundaries to determine what needs to be adjusted. This Full Moon sets the tone for the coming year, so it is wise to take some internal time to meditate and look at what is nurturing you and what is not.
December holds a calming effect after a chaotic year. Mars is in Pisces all month, so there is a spiritual or peaceful warrior tone going on. Mercury does continue to be retrograde until the New Moon on the 6th, but that is not making any big challenges-just the normal communications breakdown and adaptability annoyances. It is now safe to sign papers and make those electronic purchases for the Holidays.
The Sun/Neptune square mid-week can weaken our immune system and vital energy, so be sure to rest when needed.
Mercury, the communications planet started his retrograde cycle in travel and big ideas Sagittarius, and now moves backwards into emotionally intense Scorpio. Communicate deeper feelings early in the month.
Sensual Venus entered sexual Scorpio on Sunday, December 2nd until early January. The goddess of love and money was in Scorpio during her retrograde cycle back in October, so this represents the completion of a relationship or love matter, and moving forward after being on hold for about six weeks. Be willing to go to deeper levels in your relationships and get focused on your material world needs and desires.
There isn’t much to say about the early workweek, except that it is a good time to delve into, or get back to projects that need your full attention.
On Wednesday afternoon the 5th, the Sun makes a challenging square to Neptune. The most likely result is lack of desire to work or feeling a bit spaced out. It is a perfect time to meditate, and do introspective work to better understand where you are on track with your higher vision or where you need to make adjustments to get them aligned.
The Sagittarius New Moon is on Thursday the 6th. The fire and water elements are strong now, so you would do well to set goals, plan and set deadlines. Begin a method to be accountable for achieving those goals. The signs involved are Sagittarius and Aries - fire signs, Scorpio and Pisces – the water element signs. This is the kind of energy where you run around doing a lot of activities but may not get around to the ones that you said you wanted to accomplish.
Sagittarius is a generous party sign, so pay attention to your budget and avoid over-committing yourself. This New Moon challenges aggressive Mars, which is in non-aggressive Pisces. Avoid saying yes when you wish you had said no, and be careful of sending mixed messages to people. This can also lead to too much or too little sleep, or overly active dreams.
Positively, bring forth your inner peaceful, spiritual warrior and speak your highest truth without the need for others to approve of you. Sagittarius loves to so a trip or plane for one, could be in the making.
Warrior Mars aligns with peaceful Neptune early on Friday, Dec. 7th. Part of you wants to get up and exercise and part of you wants to hit the snooze button. This is the last conjunction of 2018. You may feel some additional energy to pursue your artistic and spiritual dreams. This also brings sexual magnetism, charismatic appeal and an emphasis on charity work.
The negative side is a tendency to over-idealize people and situations, to be deceived, and to be attracted to dangerous drugs or alcohol. Yoga or a spiritual practice is supported and strengthened by this energy.
On Saturday, the Moon enters Capricorn to help you accomplish all those tangible tasks that need attention for the coming holidays.
This week brings a time to be careful and get real as we all prepare for the opening of 2019.
