Reorganizing the Mind -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Jan. 30th - Sun., Feb. 5th, 2017

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Standard Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week was magical and intense at the same time. All that Pisces energy we had until Friday night made it easier to lean in and trust the flow of things. 

There was also that Saturn Square to Chiron, to Mars and later to Venus -- this definitely upped the ante -- it also created moments of frustration and feelings of separation… Focusing on self-responsibility (and not taking anything personally) was a big help.

This week's headline items: Venus enters her shadow phase on Monday, as she reaches 27º of Pisces. On Wednesday, it's time to take actions on our New Moon Intentions. Venus changes  signs from Pisces to Aries late Friday morning — and late in the evening, the first Quarter Moon in Taurus becomes exact. Finally, on Sunday night/Monday very early morning, Jupiter comes to a halt prior to turning retrograde.

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early afternoon (for a little over 4 hours), Thursday late morning (for 9 hours), and Saturday late afternoon (for 6 hours). 

Monday (January 30th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day. It will journey there until Tuesday afternoon. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all -- but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog. 

But... that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn't match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors. 

It's also a great time for releasing fears -- especially the ones based on a sense of separation -- and experiencing "oneness". Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them -- in fact, "going with the flow" is the best way to go for the next couple of days. 

Also starting Monday: Venus reaches 27 degrees of Pisces, marking the beginning of her pre-retrograde shadow phase. 

During a “retrograde”, a planet appears to reverse its normal direction through the sky. Astrologers refer to the period immediately before and after a planet’s retrograde phase as the “shadow phases”; at these times, the planet travels through the degrees of a sign that it will later revisit during the Retrograde phase. 

Venus is usually in its shadow for about four weeks prior to a retrograde, and for almost five weeks after.

This is a chance to reassess our values, relationships and finances, so look carefully at whatever shows up within those areas of your life during the shadow phases -- you will get a chance to readdress those issues during the Venus retrograde (March-April).  

Tuesday (Jan. 31st): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces until 4:46pm EST (see Monday for details).

Tuesday at 12:36pm EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC) that last for a little over 4 hours, until 4:46pm EST. If at all possible, treat yourself to a nice, intuitive, creative, slow afternoon. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. If you are not able to slow your schedule down, I recommend you at least plan this part of it ahead of time ;-)

Tuesday at 4:46pm EST, the Moon moves into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Thursday evening. Life is an adventure, we're more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately. 

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body's excess energy. 

Tuesday late evening, a challenging Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 10:32pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Sunday on; it will be strong until Friday. This aspect creates some tension in our lives: We may feel anxious or stressed by a situation or an interaction with business, or something to do with our career or long-term goals. 

We'll likely want to think outside the box. We may also want to bring some changes to a life situation or long-term goal that no longer fits. Again: We are being called to play a bigger game and may feel overwhelmed by what it all means. 

Our minds may prefer things to be “squared away”, traditional or established, yet at the same time be possessed by a great urge for progress and breakthroughs — and this could leave us feeling irritable — the best way to manage this is to channel some of that nervous, irritable energy into constructive pursuits. 

Since there's a tendency right now to challenge established thought, or play devil's advocate, it also helps to get in touch with our inner truth. Use breath to turn any fear into excitement -- and let yourself drop into your heart.

Expect the unexpected, plan on disruption, revelation and breakthroughs -- during this transit, the best mind is an open mind. As best as you can, go with the flow, staying open to the new and unexpectedly different. Could you allow whatever is happening to stimulate new approaches?

As you can perhaps imagine, this is not a time to make major decisions, especially if they are hasty ;-) You can think of this as "reorganizing" time for the mind, like moving your furniture around.  If you feel yourself resisting the reshuffle, do your best to relax -- and maybe even sit back and enjoy the show.

And as always, if all else fails, take it one moment at a time... Rather than jumping to conclusions, get grounded in the here and now — bringing awareness to your breath (or body) is a good way to do this.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-24 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Uranus rules Aquarius)

Wednesday (February 1st): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Tuesday afternoon for details).

Wednesday late evening, an opportune Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 9:30pm EST. We have been feeling this aspect build from last Tuesday on; it will be strong until this Friday. We have an opportunity to bring healing energy to our concrete mind and to our thoughts. We also have a chance to heal insecurities in our verbal, in-person, or email interactions. 

We are better able now to tune out that automatic/critical inner voice, in favor of more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. By bringing love and understanding to our thinking processes, we have a chance to move beyond entrenched habits, like "pushing ourselves" or dreaming up catastrophic futures. 

Here’s a few good “chew toys” for your mind at this time: What was your family's attitude towards career? Long-term goals in general? What if you tried a gentler approach for a bit? Does your inner dialog really have to repeat what they said when you were 3 years old? What if you used a gentler voice for the next ten minutes or so? 

For those of you who want to have a better understanding of your personal healing journey, feel free to get the recording of my recent Chiron-workshop: "Healing with Astrology" Click here for more info
 
Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 20-25 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus or Scorpio? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

Also on Wednesday all day, if you set Intentions last week Friday, Saturday or Sunday, after the New Moon became exact, today will be the best time to take relevant actions. If you wrote your intentions down, go back and take another look at what came through intuitively. If you didn’t write anything down, get quiet for a moment and check in with yourself: What actions are calling to me?

Thursday (Feb. 2nd): the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries until 8:50pm EST (see Tuesday afternoon for details).

Thursday at 11:50am EST, we enter a 9-hour Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts until 8:50pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect, to meet your need for newness, and for going after your goals in a mature and disciplined way. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan the second half of Thursday ahead of time.

Thursday at 8:50pm EST, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will be until Saturday late evening. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and "rushing things" goes against our grain. 

What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It's probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses ;-) This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the first Quarter Moon (exact on Friday late evening).

On another note, I would also like to mention the upcoming Lunar and Solar Eclipse. An Eclipse is a consciousness upgrade. For 7 - 10 days before and after an Eclipse, we are usually in uncharted territory: anything is possible and it's wise to expect the unexpected. The upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Leo will be exact, next week Friday, Feb. 10th (feel free to watch my video on the subject — will be posted by Friday evening of this week).

Anything brand-new (and I really mean brand, brand-new) started during this time will likely not pan out the way we thought it would, often because important information comes to light only after Eclipse season is over. If possible, try to defer any major brand-new projects until after March 12th, when this Eclipse season is over. If something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic… allow it to be.

Another Eclipse-related phenomenon: not only do Eclipses bring up uncertainty in us, they might also leave us nervous, anxious, unsettled and disoriented. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the "here and now". If you feel rushed into something, take a deep breath and connect to your heart, intuition and inner wisdom: They will carry you through.   

Just like upgrading a computer, you will get all the information you need, as soon as the upgrade is complete -- so as best you can, be patient. This does not mean that we need to drop everything; it just means it's wise to check in with our higher guidance -- do this whichever way feels right to you ;-) Remember: it's temporary.

I will also talk about the upcoming Eclipses in more detail in my next Forecasting Forum on Saturday, Feb. 11th at 2pm EST/7pm GMT (London-time). If you want to know how the Eclipses are going to impact you personally, feel free to join us -- we will apply what's coming up, to our own birth charts. For more info or to register, click here

Friday (Feb. 3rd): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Thursday evening for details).

Friday late morning, at 10:51am EST, Venus changes signs from intuitive, creative, dreamy Pisces to fast-paced, enthusiastic, active Aries,  where it will journey until April 2nd. Due to the upcoming Venus Retrograde phase it will re-enter Aries on April 28th and leave this fiery sign for good on June 6th. 

For those time periods, we are going to feel passionate about connecting to others. We are ready to make a new start: if you are single, this could be a great chance to start something new (all things being equal ;-) With Venus in Aries, spontaneity and independence are important to us. You’re not the only one who likes a challenge, so don't make it too easy for others to win you over ;-) 

If you are already in a committed relationship, you get a wonderful chance to bring freshness and excitement to your bedroom and "other parts of the house" ;-) We also have more energy than usual; we are more likely to want to get out of the house, and be active with others. 

All this is especially true if you are a Taurus, Libra or Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As an Aries, beauty and love will enter your life during this time, you will feel more attractive and you will attract things to you. As a Taurus or Libra, you will feel more energized, passionate and more direct than usual.

Friday late evening, at 11:19pm EST, the first Quarter Moon in 15.5 degrees of Taurus becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect from the moment the Moon entered Taurus on Thursday evening. The Moon, in steady, peaceful, comfort-oriented Taurus, makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in freedom-loving, forward-thinking, rebellious Aquarius. 

We feel compelled to take action. Last week on Jan. 27th, the New Moon in Aquarius was exact: "Seeds" planted then are probably "sprouting" by now -- and making their first real contact with the outside world. This is therefore a time to stretch and grow -- and create some forward momentum. We may feel anxious or unusually busy. 

As best as you can, go one breath at a time. Allow for changes, remain flexible (as much as possible), and find creative solutions for your day-to-day interactions with others.  

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in any of the following: 13-18 degrees of Taurus, Aquarius, Leo or Scorpio? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Saturday (Feb. 4th): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus until 11:44pm EST (see Thursday evening for details).

For the 6 hours between 5:42pm EST, and 11:44pm EST Saturday, the Moon is void of course (VoC). This is an intuitive time; use it to think about long-term goals and realistic financial plans. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Saturday evening ahead of time ;-)

Saturday at 11:44pm EST, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will be until Monday night/Tuesday very early morning. For the next two days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. 

"Busy" feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way...The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead :-) 

Sunday (Feb. 5th): Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Saturday late evening for details). 

Sunday morning brings an opportunity for moving things forward -- it’s a great time to connect with others and get some projects moving (or launched).

Please note that Jupiter will come to halt tonight (Sunday night/Monday very early morning, EST). This may dent our optimism about our relationships, especially for the next three days (Sunday included), or perhaps just leave things feeling a little stagnant. 

I will cover this in more detail in next Monday's forecast, for now, just be aware that if you have a Sagittarius Sun-sign, Rising-sign or Moon sign, you will be more affected by this planet's movements.

A head's up for next Monday (Feb. 6th): Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Saturday late evening for details). At 1:52am EST, Jupiter comes to a halt, starting it's yearly 4-month retrograde phase in 23 degrees of Libra. At 5:53pm EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for a little over 8 hours, until 2:03am EST (Tuesday very early morning). More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)

Intuition And Maturity -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Jan. 23rd - Sun., Jan. 29th, 2017

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Standard Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

If I had to sum it all up into one word, last week was: magical. Yes, it was many other things, but since I am in India right now at an Astrology Workshop, I thought I would keep it short and to the point ;-)

This week's headline items: the Balsamic Moon phase begins, Mercury ends its shadow phase, the New Moon in Aquarius becomes exact, (and Eclipse season begins), Jupiter begins its pre-retrograde station, Mars changes signs from Pisces to Aries.

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday early afternoon (for a little over 5 hours), Thursday night/Friday very early morning (for a little over 1 hour), and Saturday night/Sunday very early morning (for a little over 10 hours).

Monday (January 23rd): the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day. It will journey thereuntil Tuesday late afternoon. We're strongly motivated to explore and learn. We're not likely to be big fans of routine -- diversity and new adventures work best at this time -- we're also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired -- but we also have a high degree of independence, which means we'd rather inspire others to do things our way, than take orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see. 

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge -- just watch out you aren't overdoing or overstating things. 

Monday early morning,an opportune Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 4:29am EST.We started to feel this aspect from last Saturday on; it will be strong until this Wednesday. Due to the last Mercury Retrograde phase, we have been experiencing this aspect several times already; this is the third pass within the last 6 weeks. This gives us a chance to address our approach toward any misunderstandings.

This aspect gives us the opportunity to bring compassion and an intuitive approach to our thinking process. Having faith and connecting to our Higher Selves will be of service to us at this time. Any artistic or spiritual endeavors are likely to do well at this time. Music might help us with our thinking process and ability to get things done. 

Let yourself be inspired! A book, a song, a movie, someone else's words… allow the Universe to speak to you. Open your mind to a higher vibration -- and remember, opportunities are openings... they aren't necessarily handed to us... we have to "take" them and make something of them. Is there anything that came up around 16 days ago that needs to be readdressed? If so, this is your chance... ;-)

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 8-12 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio or Taurus? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, the Balsamic Moon phase begins. This lasts until Friday evening, when the New Moon in Aquarius becomes exact (more on that later...). We are being asked to slow down and get quiet, so we can listen to our intuition. For some of us, this might be a stretch. 

As best as you can: stay grounded, take a deep breath and exhale any tensions. Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing existing projects or processes. This is also a great time for letting go of whatever no longer serves us. What if you could hear the voice of your inner wisdom? What might it be saying? 

Tuesday (Jan. 24th): the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius until 5:43pm EST (see Monday for details).

Tuesday at 12:33pm EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for a little over 5 hours, until 5:43pm EST. Use this intuitive time to make necessary adjustments. Honor your need for adventure and exploration of life -- and your desire for going with the flow. You may also feel a pull between your introverted and extroverted sides. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan the second half of Tuesday ahead of time ;-)

Tuesday at 5:43pm EST, the Moon moves into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Friday very early morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters. 

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us. 

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid "should-ing" on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying "I am doing the best I can and that's all I can ever do" ;-)

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; it's transiting through Sagittarius right now, making this a great time to explore limiting beliefs and bust through conditioned thought structures. It's also a great time to take a more serious look at the "meaning of life". 

As best as you can, be authentic about your beliefs: Do they actually match your direct experience of life -- as it is for you now, rather than 5 or 10 years ago? What is true as of now? What is not? 

Wednesday (Jan. 25th): the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Tuesday late afternoon for details).

Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning, a Venus/Chiron alignment in 22 degrees of Pisces becomes exact at 1:49am EST. We started to feel this connection from last Saturday evening on; it will be strong until this Saturday. This alignment reminds us of wounds around relationships or our sense of self-worth. Social situations might feel awkward. 

We may experience emotional triggers, so as best as you can, bring compassion and understanding to yourself, to others, and to those past experiences that wounded you. We need to learn to love ourselves, and heal deep fears of being "not good enough". Healing happens much faster when we are open to forgiving and embracing ourselves exactly as we are (and are not). 

For those of you who want to have a better understanding of your personal healing journey, feel free to get the recording of my recent Chiron-workshop: "Healing with Astrology" Click here for more info

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-25 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra)

Thursday (Jan. 26th): the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Tuesday late afternoon for details).

Thursday very early morning,a somewhat challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 3:02am EST.We started to feel this aspect from Wednesday morning on; it will be strong until Friday evening. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward -- and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed in order to see what needs adjusting. 

This aspect marks a fork in the road: Will we step onto the spiritual/creative path and sacrifice to serve others with compassion? Or take the path that leads to increased understanding of equality in relationships and balance with our surroundings? 

Either way, we can develop a new perspective on how to approach these issues in our one-on-one relationships. Awareness is key with this aspect: What is needed? How can we serve the broader view? 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 22-24 degrees of Pisces or Libra? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Thursday night/Friday very early morning at 2:18am EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for a little over 1 hour, until 3:37 am EST. If you are awake during this intuitive time, use it to take a break and tune in: What might an "inspired action" be right now? As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan.... ahead of time ;-)

Friday (Jan. 27th) at 3:37am EST,the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until Sunday late morning. With this Moon placement, we often feel emotionally detached; when we do connect to our feelings, it's typically from a cerebral, intellectual place. We need a cause or project that resonates -- preferably one where we can connect with like-minded people.

For the next couple of days, we'll tend to be more eccentric or experimental; future-related issues like politics or education call to us now, as do unusual or even esoteric subjects like Astrology, UFOs... indeed anything from outer space. Our scientific approach to things leans on originality and ingenuity; we definitely love being unconventional. 

The increased value we place on personal and emotional independence could make us come off as indifferent or cold in one-on-one interactions. That said, we can still be friendly and kind, provided we aren't pushed into doing something conventional or unethical. 

Friday early afternoon, a challenging Venus/Saturn aspectbecomes exact at 12:50pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Tuesday on; it will be strong until Monday evening. This asks us to stretch and grow beyond how we've known ourselves in our relationships up to this point -- a process of maturing that requires we adjust and stay flexible.

On the one hand, we want to make spiritual and/or romantic connections, while going with the flow, feeling our way through. On the other hand, we feel a sharp need to explore “the truth” about ourselves and others — to determine what beliefs align with our own direct experience. Do your best to make space for both of these urges.

We tend to be more cautious when it comes to relationships and finances now -- and in fact, this is not the best time to start a brand-new romantic relationship. Financially though, this aspect can be eye-opening; if we can find creative ways to deal with money, we will grow from it. 

The key is to approach things in both realms with intuition and maturity. Pushing doesn't always get us what we want: Sometimes, it’s better to go one step at a time; that way, we can come back later with a stronger approach and more mature expectations. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 21-27 degrees of Pisces, Sagittarius, Virgo or Gemini? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

Friday late morning, Mercury leaves its shadow phaseat 15 degrees of Capricorn! We are ready to process (and share) brand-new information.As you may recall from earlier blog entries, if you want to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items, it's best to avoid the shadow periods before and after Mercury goes retrograde. 

This is especially true if the items you are thinking about getting are connected to transportation (cars, flight tickets, etc.) or communication (phone, computer, i-pad, etc.) The shadow phase having ended, feel free to buy, sell and book whatever your heart desires Feel free to also read my blog on the subject ;-)

This is especially good news for anyone who has a Gemini or Virgo Sun-sign or Rising sign ;-)

On Friday at 7:07pm ESTthe New Moon in 8 degrees of Aquariusbecomes exact. This is not only the beginning of a Moon cycle, it also signals the start of the next Eclipse season; this one lasts until March 12th. I also recommend you watch my New Moon video on the subject

Eclipses are times of uncertainty, Uranian in nature — so anything could happen between now and March 12th. It is important to remember that Eclipses open a door to the next level of our soul's evolution — and the placement of this New Moon (and the Eclipses) relative to our birth charts will tell us which areas of our life will be most affected.

As best as you can, stay both grounded and flexible — and don't jump the gun: If you feel compelled to do something, do your best to simply observe the urge. The exception might be something that just happens organically, but if you are ambivalent about a possible action, better hold off at least until Eclipse Season ends on March 12th.

Eclipses bring major endings and beginnings. As best you can, trust that whatever is leaving is making space for something better -- the more willing we are to change, the easier it will be. 

That said, projects and interactions that got underway prior to Eclipse season (i.e. before Jan. 27th) are another matter -- don’t stop your life just because it is Eclipse season ;-) 

I will also talk about the upcoming Eclipses in more detail in my next Forecasting Forum. If you want to know how the Eclipses are going to impact you personally, feel free to join us -- we will apply what's coming up, to our own birth charts. The forum is on Feb. 11th at 2pm EST — for more info, click here

With the New Moon in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, we have our eye on the future. We see a clear vision for our life and are ready to make huge improvements. 

Aquarius also deals with the power of ideals, technology, and inventions. We are interested in the collective and are focused on changing group consciousness: to strive for equality, collaboration, progress. 

The Aquarian prompts us to ask: Where am I called to make a difference? What could I, as an individual, do for humanity? And how might group consciousness help humanity make progress?

Every single one of us has a special gift, a spark unique to us; when we access this inner genius and share it with the world, we can make quantum leaps of insight and remarkable collaborations with others. Ask yourself: How does my inner genius communicate? Where does it want to show up?

Venus in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius and conjuncts Chiron & Mars in Pisces. This invites us to stretch a little for the duration of this lunar cycle, to grow beyond what we currently know ourselves to be; we are also called to heal wounds from our past. The key is to approach things with intuition and maturity. 

As best as you can, work on self-acceptance and self-compassion; be honest with yourself about your own limitations and expectations towards others. Aim for wholeness, forgiveness, and a courageously open heart when connecting with others. We are being invited to love ourselves and thereby heal deep fears of being "not good enough". 

Here are some coaching questions you could ask yourself: What might happen if I embraced myself exactly as I am — and as I am not? Could I at least be open to forgiving myself for having limitations and sensitivities?

"Slow and steady" is the key here -- and it's critical to keep checking our beliefs and maintaining our emotional/spiritual connections. “Pushing" won't get us what we want in these next two week... Sometimes, it’s better to go one step at a time — that way, we can come back later with a stronger approach and more mature expectations. What might that look like for you now?

Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is currently in Aries — and is making several aspects: Firstly, it squares Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn; it opposes Jupiter in Libra; and finally, it trines Saturn in Sagittarius

These aspects are asking us to redefine personal and collective freedom. We are invited to release old patterns, especially around gender, so we can each fulfill our unique role at this critical juncture on Earth. 

Much like the 1960’s, we are laying the groundwork for future generations right now; just as was true then, let your vision direct your thoughts and actions, rather than your fear. Simply know that it is possible and that you are contributing.

That said — and somewhat paradoxically -- bringing forth a global consciousness based on freedom, equality and mutual benefit will mean addressing what lurks in the shadows: our unconscious… the suppressed, feared, denied, ignored, shameful, etc. 

In other words, the inner work not only continues, it informs and enables the vision.

So, I ask myself (and invite you to do the same): What are my true motivations? If fears were driving me, what might they be? What might shift if I faced those fears -- acknowledged them, brought them out into the open? What if I allowed myself to surrender to my own higher power, or to my passionately pumping, wildly open heart?

Trust your inner truth! When your body feels relaxed and open, you are very probably standing in your truth — and Saturn helps this by supporting a more serious look at our belief systems. This can lead to our admitting and owning where our current path has diverged from the one we walked based on past beliefs. 

By definition, a better future pretty much always requires doing different things (or doing things differently), so be ready to correct your course or set a new one...

Is there another path that leads to my goals? What if it were possible to take responsibility and be flexible at the same time? What if I forgave myself for just a moment? Even for limitations I still have… and for fears… maybe even for my phobias... and for all the “stuff” I still carry around (whether from a past life or this one)?

As you can see, we are asked to let go of our fearful past conditioning, especially our scarcity mentality, and instead allow ourselves to be immersed in a vision that calls us to "live into" the highest version of ourselves. 

How could Self-care and Self-love support me in this? Could honest conversations with myself and others help me face and embrace my fears and let go of past hurts?

A quick note about self-care, self-support, self-love. Normally, when we say “selfish motivations”, we generally mean those that come from fear — I invite you to reclaim that term for love. Aren’t you as deserving of your love and support as any “external” person? Where might self-love serve you?

We are all agents of change. Already. Always. Right now, our individual capacity to effect change is far greater than we realize — especially for those of us with Uranus, Aquarius, or 11th house planets strongly emphasized in our birth chart — and when we team up with others who also care deeply about creating a better future for this planet and all its life forms, we can create tremendous change. 

Again: aim for wholeness, forgiveness — above all, keep a courageously open heart — our light shines all the brighter when all of our authentic self is visible :-)

Do you have your Ascendant (or any personal planets) in one of the following placements: 6-10 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly.

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for this month's Moon cycle. This is best done soon after the New Moon becomes exact -- and definitely not during a Moon void of course phase. 

So this month, the best time and most potent time to set intentions would be any time between 7:07pm EST Friday evening (Jan. 27th) and 12:52am EST Saturday night/Sunday very early morning (Jan. 29th), and then again from 11:10am until 7:07pm EST on Sunday (Jan. 29th). 

This New Moon reminds us that to be fully alive we must stretch, grow, change. So: while writing your intentions, ask yourself: What would it take for me to boldly follow my dreams? Who could I connect with? Again, I also recommend you watch my New Moon video on the subject

Saturday (Jan. 28th): the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Friday very early morning for details).

Friday night/Saturday very early morning, Mars changes signs from sensitive, creative Pisces, to pioneering, enthusiastic Aries.Mars will journey through Aries until March 9th. Mars has an almost two year cycle;Mars last traveled through Aries in March-April 2013. Was there a significant new beginning for you back then?

For those next five and a half weeks, we will have a strong drive for fast forward motion; our first instinct is for action. Spontaneity is an asset, as are simplicity and innovation. We like the fresh start; there will very likely be new ideas, pioneering action and "fresh" projects abounding. 

We enjoy challenges with this placement, so we are happy to take on something bigger than usual -- maybe a new, more demanding job or relationship. Our physical energy is great, but we may lose our initial enthusiasm quickly. 

We are not likely to beat around the bush now; a direct approach is definitely favored. Things to watch out for: impatience; getting irritated by other people's indirectness; being insensitive to other people's needs or approaches.

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries? If so, you will feel quite energized by this placement. Your physical energy will be tremendous, you are going to feel unstoppable. The only thing to watch out for: physical burnout. 

Also on Saturday, Jupiter starts to slow down (station), preparing for its 4-month retrograde phase. Jupiter will come to a halt on Feb. 6th;its station-phase last until Feb. 14th. We will feel its energy more forcefully during the station-phase. 

We start to be more fully aware of Jupiter's energy; this awareness helps us to get more connected to those energies within us. We get to see where we need to embrace them more fully, so that we can use them in a healthy way, without getting lost in the lower vibrations of their expression. 
  
Until Feb.14th, we have to face what this planet is trying to communicate to us: Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge. Some of this planet's keywords include: morality; gratitude; hope; honor; the law. Jupiter is the planet of possibility, optimism and growth (including mental and spiritual growth). Jupiter is also associated with a sense of humor, goodwill, and mercy. 

The lower expressions of Jupiter include "Oh, the heck with it", "I deserve this and more", "the rules do not apply to me" -- generally speaking: too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overindulgence.  

Those of us who have any of our personal planets (or our Ascendent) in 21-25 degrees of Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn will be more affected by this station; as will those of us who have their Ascendent or Sun-sign in Sagittarius (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Jupiter's movements and aspects).

Also: if you haven't set your New Moon Intentionsyet, today (Saturday) all day is still time to do so during the most potent time... If you'd like some input on how to do that, check out this article: http://goo.gl/klCcph -- you could also (re-)watch my New Moon video

Sunday (Jan. 29th): the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius until 11:10am EST (see Friday very early morning for details).

Saturday night/Sunday very early morning at 12:52am EST we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts a little over 10 hours, until 11:10am EST. This is an intuitive time that presents an opportunity to connect to innovative ideas and unique world-views -- so if you can, connect with like-minded people and explore new commitments. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan your Sunday morning ahead of time ;-)

Sunday at 11:10am EST,the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Tuesday afternoon. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all -- but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog. 

But... that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn't match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors. 

It's also a great time for releasing fears -- especially the ones based on a sense of separation -- and experiencing "oneness". Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them -- in fact, "going with the flow" is the best way to go for the next couple of days. 

Sunday afternoon, a Mercury/Pluto alignment in 18 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 3:21pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Friday on; it will be strong until next week Wednesday (it might feel familiar: thanks to Mercury's retrograde phase, this close alignment to Pluto also happened back in December).

We are invited to look back to Dec. 15th - 21st: What long-term plans (aligned with something we feel deeply passionate about) were we thinking about?

With this alignment, an all-or-nothing attitude is very likely. We have tremendous mental focus — which could tip into obsession. Choose love over fear whenever possible. Connect to the things you feel passionate about -- and connect to others, empowering them with your passions. As best as you can, choose your words carefully -- if possible, speak from that deeply connected and empowered place.

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 15-21 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra or Cancer? If so, you may feel more connected to this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Scorpio (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Pluto rules Scorpio)

Also: last chance set your New Moon Intentionsduring the most potent time, if you haven't done so yet: from 11:10am until 7:07pm EST on Sunday. If you'd like some input on how to do that, check out this article: http://goo.gl/klCcph -- you could also (re-)watch my New Moon video

A head's up for next Monday (Jan. 30th): the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Sunday late morning for details). Reaching 27 degrees of Pisces, Venus enters her shadow phase today; more about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)

Last week had lots of energy floating about... Being present in the here and now, taking it one moment at a time, doing my best to maintain a kind mind and an open heart -- this got me through it all without going into overwhelm and spinning out into space :-) 

And... I finished my Planetary Overview for 2017! I did it! ;-) To get a peek at what's coming up this year, click here 

This week's headline items: on Thursday afternoon, the Sun changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius and the last Quarter Moon in Scorpio becomes exact. We also have two Mars aspects this week: a conjunct with Chiron in Pisces and a square with Saturn.  

There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday night/Tuesday very early morning (for a little over 5 hours), Thursday very early morning (for a little over 13 hours), and Saturday evening (for almost 9.5 hours). 

Monday (January 16th): the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday morning; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world -- things and knowledge we can apply and use. 

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals. 

Monday evening, a Mars/Chiron alignment in 24.5 degrees of Pisces becomes exact at 9:14pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from last Thursday on; it will be strong until this Friday. This connection brings emotional healing to our bodies. 

Seeking out energy healing or any other alternative forms of healing is going to be very beneficial, both to our emotional "bodies" and physical bodies. We may also find that music aids in our healing process, whether on a physical or emotional level.  

This is also a great time to accept the validity of our own desires and feelings of anger; that way, when we do express them, we express them naturally and with confidence. Something may come along, related to a childhood wound, that we take personally; we may get triggered by this. Rather than suppressing your anger, as best as you can, allow yourself to feel it consciously; bring love and understanding to its origin. 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-25 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries (Mars is the ruler of Aries, so those of us with these placements will always be affected more strongly by Mars's movements and aspects than others). 

Tuesday (Jan. 17h): the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo until 6:16am EST (see Monday for details). 

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning at 1:09am EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts for for a little over 5 hours, until 6:16am EST. If you are awake during this intuitive time, use it to get organized, improve daily routines, and for becoming aware of how this all fits in with achieving your long-term goals. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Tuesday early morning ahead of time ;-)  

Tuesday at 6:16am EST, the Moon moves into harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra, where it will journey until Thursday afternoon. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.

We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation -- but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to "yes" more easily than we might like. 

We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can't make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm -- even if it's "No" ;-) One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts. 

Wednesday (Jan. 18th): the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day (see Tuesday morning for details).

Wednesday very early morning, a somewhat challenging Mars/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 2:51am EST. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening on; it will be strong until Thursday morning. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward -- and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed in order to see what needs adjusting.

Our enthusiasm for creating from the heart could lead us into frustration, leaving us feeling drained and unappreciated. 

We need to recognize our own competitive instincts for what they are, rather than masking them in "service to others"; if we can evaluate our intentions toward others in a healthy way, we will see whether they truly support our journey towards the divine.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 21-24 degrees of Pisces or Libra? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Sagittarius (Mars is the ruler of Aries; Jupiter rules Sagittarius)

Astrologically speaking, Thursday (Jan. 19th) is a busy day:the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra until 5:09pm EST (see Tuesday morning for details).

Thursday at 3:55am EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for a little over 13 hours, until 5:09pm EST. Use this intuitive time to collaborate with others and bring a new level of focus and authenticity to your exploration of life. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Thursday ahead of time ;-)

Thursday early morning, a challenging Mars/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 4:16am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last Saturday on; it will be strong until this coming Sunday. This is a "stretch" aspect -- it's characterized by inner conflict -- as well as a maturity process that requires adjustments and flexibility on our part.

On the one hand, we want to start spiritual/creative projects and go with the flow, feeling our way through life. On the other, we have a strong focus on exploring “the truth” about life -- on reaching an understanding of what beliefs are truthful and align with our own experiences. As best as you can, make space for both of these.

We also tend to be more cautious now. We may experience a temporary loss of enthusiasm -- or setbacks that make us doubt our ability to win in life. We are learning to live life in moderation; this might be frustrating at first. 

Pushing too hard (or too fast) doesn't always get us the results we want: It might be time to slow down a little and catch our breath. That way, we can come back later, with a stronger, more mature set of expectations and approaches. 

Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 20-26 degrees of Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo? If so, you may be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries or Capricorn (Mars rules Aries; Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn).

Thursday at 4:24pm EST, the Sun changes signs from practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn to freedom-loving, forward-thinking and objective Aquarius, where it will journey until Feb. 18th. For the next four weeks, we have advancement and progress in our hearts. 

We want to get off the beaten path, leaving behind old and outdated ways of thinking and doing, throwing off personal and social conditioning – those restrictions, limitations and inhibitions that may once have felt safe, but now feel constraining.

Our idealism runs strong, but we can have some fixed ideas about how we want to accomplish these ideals – although we are open to new ideas in theory, in practice we may actually be quite stubborn. 

Finally, we are also definitely more aware of the impact each individual has on the whole of society. All this is especially true if you are a Leo or Aquarius Sun-sign or Rising-sign. As an Aquarius, you will feel a good dose of confidence and playfulness in the next four weeks; as a Leo, you are more objective than usual…working towards a vision for the future might be just the thing for you to do.

Thursday at 5:09pm EST, the Moon moves into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Sunday early morning. We feel things deeply and have "X-Ray Vision" and "Bullshit-Smelling Abilities" ;-)

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever... as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction -- it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It's therefore an excellent time to look at "old" fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas. 

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity -- it's "in or out", "with us or against us", "love me or leave me". It can therefore be stormy -- a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we "work" the energies :-)

Manipulation and paranoia are the lower vibrations of this aspect, so as best you can, be straightforward -- act in good faith and assume it in others. Best of all, be truly present to the fluctuations of your feelings -- no matter if they're "polite" or "timely". Feelings aren't facts, but they are information -- and heeding them will help you embrace all of who you are. 

Know thyself -- and love thyself -- you shall be set free. Remember: Love connects us to the Power within; Fear causes "Force" to show up -- and that's ultimately what disempowers us and others. 

Thursday at 5:13pm EST, the last Quarter Moon in 0 degrees of Scorpio will be exact. The Moon in deep-feeling Scorpio is making a challenging aspect to the Sun in emotionally detached Aquarius. This may bring up some challenges. However, it also energizes us to look at what needs to be completed -- and what needs to be changed. 

This Moon phase brings us closer to Jan. 27th, which will bring the New Moon in Aquarius. During the last Quarter Moon, we are better served by reviewing those projects we began around the last New Moon -- in this case, that would be Dec. 29th -- as opposed to launching new ones. Out of those projects, what needs last-minute adjustments? What did you discover since then? What did it mean for you? 

As best as you can, find creative solutions for anything that comes up (whether internally, or with others).

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 0-2 degrees of Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo, Taurus or 28-29 degrees of Libra, Capricorn, Aries or Cancer? If so, you are more affected by this month's last Quarter Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer, since the Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer.

Friday (Jan. 20th): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day (see Thursday afternoon for details).

Friday morning, an opportune Venus/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 8:57am EST.We started to feel this aspect from Wednesday on; it will be strong until Sunday. We have an opportunity here, to bring all of our passion to what we value most -- to build something with spiritual or creative value. 

This could be a powerful and passionate time in our romantic relationships. We have the opportunity to build something long-term and bring a good dose of faith to that process. Remember: this is an "opportunity" -- opportunities aren't necessarily handed to us, we have to make them happen.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 15-20 degrees of Pisces, Capricorn, Scorpio or Taurus? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Scorpio (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio)

Saturday (Jan. 21st): the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day (see Thursday afternoon for details).

Saturday at 8:24pm EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for almost 9.5 hours, until 5:45am EST (Sunday early morning). Use this intuitive time to slow down and focus on your inner processes. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Saturday evening and Sunday early morning ahead of time ;-)

Sunday (Jan. 22nd) at 5:45am EST, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until Tuesday late afternoon. We're strongly motivated to explore and learn. We're not likely to be big fans of routine -- diversity and new adventures work best at this time -- we're also physically restless and need to burn that off with activity and physical exercise.

We tend to feel more open, optimistic and inspired -- but we also have a high degree of independence, which means we'd rather inspire others to do things our way, than take orders. Inspiring others could come easier than normal, as we can see the bigger picture, leaving us confident that others will agree with us, once they see what we see. 

As best as you can, speak your truth without assuming that everyone is on the same page as you. Improvisation works well for us at this time, as we are spontaneous and love living on the edge -- just watch out you aren't overdoing or overstating things. 

Sunday also presents an opportunity to take actions that serve our visions and dreams. If at all possible, connect with like-minded people that share your philosophies -- and brainstorm with them...

A head's up for next Monday (Jan.23rd): the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day (see Sunday early morning for details). An opportune Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 4:29am EST.We started to feel this aspect from Saturday on; it will be strong until next week Wednesday. Also on Monday, the Balsamic Moon phase begins. This lasts until Thursday night/Friday very early morning of next week, when the New Moon in Aquarius becomes exact (Jan.27th). More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)
