Week Ahead – Monday January 15th through Sunday January 21st

Happy Sunday everyone! We are now moving into the second half of this month. We have 6 out of 10 planets used in astrology in Capricorn at this time, which brings us an opportunity to bring our higher ideals down to manifest in the real world. Today is a day to expect the unexpected because we have eccentric Uranus challenging the Sun, which represents our sense of self-identity. We need to be able to adjust to changes and not make a lot of promises today, and we should be ok. Now, let’s take a look at what this week has ahead for us.
Monday brings us a sextile between the Sun and Chiron, a harmonious transit that allows the Sun to shed its light on those wounds we still have in our life. Wherever Chiron falls in our natal chart will show us where we have been wounded and the key to healing. This transit can help you to find new inspiration, motivation, or the confidence to rejuvenate our waning enthusiasm. While this may be a gentler aspect, we still will have to make the effort to bring it all together. Adding to this is a sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. Jupiter represents our expansive qualities as well as our abilities to improve ourselves. It is a planet of abundance and seeks insight through knowledge. It’s the planet of possibilities and a well-aspected Jupiter is normally associated with good luck. The negative associations with this aspect are blind optimism, overindulgence and excess. In our Natal charts, Jupiter reveals how we express our sense of giving and tolerance and how we go about improving our lives. When Jupiter is sextile Pluto it adds extra energies to what is normally released, which can enhance our intuition and mental faculties.
Tuesday is a quiet one in the skies for us but Wednesday is our Aquarius New Moon, which starts with a brief Void of Course. A New Moon is that it is all about new beginnings that come from a deeper and more spiritual level of our being. It’s a good idea to take time and see where your philosophies don’t measure up to your day to day life.  The Moon in Aquarius brings a sense of emotional coolness or detachment at the personal level, combined with an emphasis on idealism: such is the nature of the cycle you are now entering. It’s ideas that count for you now, more than narrowly personal concerns – and you may have little tolerance for people who do not operate at this level. The new, the unusual, the avant-garde – these are the things that instinctively appeal to you.  Attraction to all that is new and unusual, and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius.
Thursday brings a trine between Mars and Chiron, where we may find ourselves being more assertive in our own healing processes. It will be a bit easier now to move past any inhibition that stops you from being assertive, expressing anger or frustration, or in putting things into action. Reconciling inner fears, guilt, or regrets that held you back can now be released more easily. Or we may find we have finally reached that point of acceptance that now will allow us to move beyond a conflict or struggle that has been keeping us stuck.
Friday brings a Void of Course Moon just before Noon, which then moves into mystical Pisces in the later part of the evening. A Pisces Moon can bring about feelings of romance, heightened intuition, mystical and dreamy moods, and an interest in the unknown, religion and all that is magical. We tend to become softer, sentimental and more tender, speaking words of kindness and complimenting those we love. We also tend to have this deeper understanding of the hidden meaning of life, events and things, as well as a more intimate perception of beauty, art, poetry and music. We also have a sextile between Mercury and Neptune, where our intuition runs high. We may feel more sensitive artistically, our imagination is stirred, and we have an increased appreciation for subtleties. We feel inspired and feel able to inspire others as well. It’s a very creative, where our ideas seem to flow magically and it makes a great time for literary and artistic projects. Mainly, this is a good time for creativity, optimism, intuition and hope. We just need to make sure that we stay grounded.
The weekend is fairly uneventful in the skies, but we are still under the influence of the Pisces Moon, which is supportive of romance, movies, meditation and paying attention to your dreams.
