First Quarter Square Moon in Taurus
4 degrees 53
January 24th 2018
This Moon in Taurus is square the Sun that just entered Aquarius and trine to Saturn in Capricorn. We want to feel grounded and within our comfort zone yet at the same time the call for connection with our community is just as strong. This isn't a time to be a hermit so move beyond your limited boundaries and bring whatever talents you have to share at the table.
Mercury is pretty busy this week making connections with Pluto, Uranus and Chiron before entering Aquarius on the 31st.
Mercury and Pluto are conjunct for the next few days in Capricorn prompting deep thinking about the changes that need to occur in the world around us. Mercury's meeting with Pluto for an update on what perspectives need shifting so that our reality can evolve and transform.
Serious matters are on the mind with Mercury in Capricorn, our mental focus is on business/ work. Mercury squares Uranus in Aries on the 27th, provoking us to find some magical way to think responsibly and act spontaneously. Uranus is a bit of a shit starter so if you have been all work and no play it might be time to free up some energy for being yourself.
The sextile between Mercury in Capricorn and Chiron in Pisces has us contemplating our wounds in a logical manner and thinking up concrete ways of going about mending them. Be open to engaging in some healing communication by talking about where your raw with that someone you can trust.
Mars ingresses Sagittarius on 25th and will be roaming through the sign until March 17th. It is pleasant to have some fiery mutable energy when so many of the planetary bodies and points occupy fixed and cardinal signs.
During this time Mars in Sagittarius will have us itching for adventures, seeking experiential knowledge and giving us a lot of energy for acting on our visions. This is an excellent time for traveling, expanding your view of the world you live in and finding your place in it.
Mars will push us to rekindle our connection with nature no matter what the weather is like ( it is cold as f#$% where I am but i've been bundling up and still making time to be outdoors). We learn so much from being in nature and as humans we often forget that we are not separate from it but in fact very active participants in it's intricate dance. Get out there and harness some of those nature vibes!
The Moon moves into mentally stimulating Gemini on 26th-28th and will oppose Mars, which could lead to some agitation if you have been too focused on screens to start your quest. It will then trine the Sun and Venus, creating the perfect conditions to put the tech down and connect with your homies.
Sun & Venus are still pretty close in Aquarius, only 4 degrees apart. This is a time to forge friendships and widen your circle. They are both nearing a conjunction with the South Node. Venus conjuncts the South Node on the 29th. This conjunction allows us to objectively take a look at how we have handled our relationships/friendships in the past and review the patterns inherent in our interactions. What has been positive? Negative? Review it all. Take an objective look at how you love so that you can detach from old ways of being that led to disharmonious engagements. Remember that the North Node in Leo calls for a loyal heart that has a willingness to co-create.
The same 4 degree distance separates Saturn and Lilith, both still in the earlier degrees of Capricorn. The two are structuring our agenda for the hardwork ahead. We will have to look at our faults and overcome them to acheive what needs to be done.
The Moon softens into Cancer 28th-30th only to oppose Saturn which may feel a little oppressive if you have too many responsibilities to count. We may want to project our shadowy feelings outside ourselves with the opposition to Lilith and blame our bosses or whoever is in charge for our funk but owning up and conducting yourself with maturity is the better choice.
The Moon will reflect on the intense contemplations of Pluto and Mercury as it opposes both. How do you feel about taking the next step in your evolution? The Moon then trines with Jupiter allowing us to feel freely whatever is coming up and begin the transformation. It ends its time in Cancer with a square to Uranus, waking and shaking us up in time for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. Until then....
