Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday January 23rd – The Moon in Virgo today denotes technical work and creativity combined with the quincunx to the Sun in Aquarius is early in the day. Venus moves forward from the conjunction with Jupiter, bringing an enhanced mission for achievement as Mars trine aspect (120 deg, easy) to the pair in Sagittarius gains with strength of purpose. Mercury in Capricorn transcends the square aspect (90 deg, harsh) with Uranus in Aries as, if thought itself takes as on wings as the messenger jumps to a higher level. Later in the day, the Moon is in an opposition aspect (180 deg, tense) to Neptune in Pisces as the images of the past are analyzed. More humanitarian assistance is called for. Saturn is in a sextile aspect (60 deg, friendly) to Neptune, helping to prune the chaff from the wheat, to avoid unnecessary commitments.
Thursday January 24th – The Moon forms a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to both Jupiter and Venus in Sag today, as more exuberant praise or criticism could slow the legislative process. The trine aspect (120 deg, easy) from the Moon to Saturn and Pluto in Cap as well, urges a steady outcome and regenerates governmental systems as Mars plies to a trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Jupiter and Venus, signifying greater achievement.
Friday January 25th – The luminaries are in a flowing trine aspect (120 deg, easy) in air signs (Moon in Libra, Sun in Aquarius) while trine aspects in fire signs (Mars to Jupiter and Venus) add zest and focus to accomplish great deeds today. Ceres moves into Sagittarius, involving protection for the new growth in political arenas.
Saturday January 26th – The Moon in Libra forms aspects to Mars (180 deg, opposition), Jupiter and Venus sextile aspects (60 deg, friendly) and a square aspect to Pluto in Cap (90 deg, harsh). While imbalance threatens, the benefits of work well done help us rise above the powers that seem to derail equanimity. Keeping a cool head may not be easy, although assistance is at hand to help overcome the negative potential.
Sunday January 27th – The Moon entered Scorpio overnight or early morning (depending on your location in the world) and formed a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Mercury and the Sun in Aquarius by mid-day. This 3rd quarter Moon, a waning Moon, help resolve issues of the cycle. Mercury in Aquarius involves special interest groups that push for change. As Mercury approaches the Sun, the lunar aspect helps to combine it with the Sun’s energy so that the Mercury’s influence at the quarter Moon phase is integral to events that are pending for resolution. While forceful elements are pushing for change with the harsh aspect, with the fixed signs of Scorpio and Aquarius, the cardinal signs of Aries and Capricorn dig in. Capricorn and Aries seem to represent the establishment and the leaders. They are conflicting with the adversaries – the more moderate groups demanding a resolution. Cautious progress can be made now, at best. [see image] At worst case scenario, a break-down in communication results.
Monday January 28th – The Moon is in a sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) to Saturn and trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Neptune. Illusions and inspirations are put to a test. Aspirations should be aligned with strategies that succeed. The Moon is but a semi-sextile aspect to Jupiter, so enthusiasm is present to a small degree. The Moon is then quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Mars in the afternoon, while a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Pluto also forms. A creative intervention may be able to modify the overall effect.
Tuesday January 29th – The Moon ia in a trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Chiron as the personal efforts succeed in promoting health. The Moon transits Ceres at 0 deg Sag, (conjunction, combining) for lavishing care on the young. The lunar conjunction aspect with Jupiter and Venus is a day away, although the early effects can be realized with planets in Sagittarius in natal charts. An opening for renewal for status in international relations or court proceedings is favored. The Moon in a sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) to Mercury and the Sun conjunction aspect, (0 deg, combining) in Aquarius, promotes advanced methods in communication and health.
