Monday, Jan 28 : Pallas conjuncts Uranus
— Along with this conjunction, the Moon will sesquisquare the Pallas-Uranus conjunction on Monday. This can make everyone feel more anxious, which can influence some of us to act – even if it’s not time yet. Still, with your emotions you can shake things up and force change, wanted or not. If you use outraged emotions to maintain control, you can exhaust yourself. And others.
— Tuesday, the Virgo Moon makes helpful connections to Pluto and Saturn (sextile to Saturn, trine to Pluto) – putting Saturn at the Moon/Pluto midpoint (exact between ~ noon and 2 PM EST) and influencing the entire day. The easy aspects from the Moon make this an easy manifesting day. but not if you let someone else’s emotions overpower your own and sink your energy into depressed state.e.
— Wednesday, the Moon-in-Virgo moves between an inconjunct to Mercury and Saturn in Aquarius. The Sun-in-Aquarius squares Saturn-in-Scorpio while the Virgo Moon semisquares Saturn.
A serious professional decision can feel personal. Getting annoyed at others can be an indirect way of feeling angry at yourself – or reacting to what feels like judgment from others – without directly facing it. What you say and hear may be more influenced by emotions than facts. A reality check doesn’t HAVE to be depressing. This is about slowing down, paying attention, so you can make tough decisions and deal with responsibilities – without getting stressed. You don’t have to attract more negativity, just look carefully at a situation – what do you need to know and what steps do you need to take that will actually help. It’s worth the effort. At the end of the day, you can feel that warm glow of deep satisfaction. Radiate your good feelings and attract your heart’s desire.
On Friday, both Venus and Mars will change signs. Mars is already void-of-course in Aquarius, so it doesn’t get to target anyone. But – Venus will receive a trine from the Moon Wednesday night, so manifest your love ~ you have so much to give, and receive.
Thursday, Jan 31 : Mercury semisquares Uranus
Thursday, Jan 31 : Pallas sextiles Jupiter
Today, Thursday. For everyone who is too stressed by change and tries to undermine change – personally or as a group – there are more who will embrace it, run with it, invent something new and wonderful that helps and works, and happily enjoy the rewards of their generous contribution.
Thursday’s Pallas-Jupiter sextile – coming with Jupiter’s Direct station (see Wednesday) – can make it easy to encourage – and positively influence – others, especially if your point is wise and believable. And humor can’t hurt. Since Pallas and Jupiter move slowly, this transit is ‘in effect’ this entire week and into next. Keep in mind- Pallas is also conjunct Uranus (exact Jan 28 and still only a degree apart) so your mind can be extra fired up as the insights keep coming. The sextile to Jupiter reminds us to SHARE our cutting-edge insights – and contribute to humanity’s progress.
Thursday can start off poetic and dreamy, with a lingering hard-to-wake-UP feeling – but hold on. The Moon enters Libra overnight and by noon the Moon opposes Uranus – and the pace can pick up without notice. Things can work out well, and easily, as the Moon trines Jupiter and highlights the Jupiter-Uranus sextile. Make networking magic – connect and ‘go viral.’ Try to maintain the airy Libra-Moon balance – getting obsessed can can grind down the party and create bad feelings.
2 planetary changes in 1 day – and within an hour of each other. Mars-in-Pisces challenges us to dream. And puts us in poetic motion – we can dance. And Venus in Aquarius wants to include everyone. Being overly idealistic can get you into shady circumstances – misty illusions can make it hard to tell what’s happening. Venus’ prospects for the week ahead look exciting as she sextiles Uranus and trines Jupiter. Graciously share your love and good feelings and let the attraction magic happen. We can see beyond the need to compete to win all and have a more compassionate energy towards everyone – at least until Spring.
