The Presidential Inauguration chart on the 20th has the Sun ingress to Aquarius, and the Moon at 29° of Aries. By the end of the ceremony and celebrations, the Moon ingress to Taurus is accomplished to join with Uranus and Mars in Taurus a day later. This transit could trigger violent unrest, happening mainly in the eastern hemisphere, or close to midnight US time zones. The full Moon on Jan 27-28th, with the Moon in Leo, and the Sun conjunction aspect to Jupiter in Aquarius is a more positive time of acceptance and satisfaction or even pride. The programs proposed are both comprehensive and inspiring for the future. More details are in the daily descriptions itemized below. While we may not be in the exalted Age of Aquarius, the pathway there begins from home. Set your Waze app.
