A Crisis with Empathy —Week of January 5-12 2022


Venus retrograde in Capricorn makes a sextile aspect to Neptune in Pisces on the 5th (Wednesday) and Mars in Sagittarius is square aspect o Neptune from the 10th (Monday) until the 12th (Wednesday).  This exchange of empathy and support is followed by more aggressive discord. Requests for compensation are honored now, and under suspicion later. Repair relationships now to withstand the stress of what comes next. If natal planets are in contact here, the situation may be a personal stress. Next week is stressful for international affairs, leaving many to doubt the stability of the institutions we depend on. The pandemic outbreak is likely to surge. With Sun and Venus retro in Capricorn along with Pluto, organizational clarity is essential. Saturn in Aquarius strives to focus on ideals, while limiting access for all. We are struggling to process the effects of climate change and the pandemic. The pandemic will end, while the consequences of climate change will last forever.
