An Offbeat, Pleasant Attitude


This week’s headline items: Uranus remains exalted until Friday; the Balsamic Moon phase begins on Tuesday late morning; the New Moon in Aquarius becomes exact on Friday evening; also on Friday, Uranus ends its station phase and resumes direct motion; the Chinese New Year begins on Saturday — and we can set our New Moon Intentions between Saturday late morning and Sunday early evening.


There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday night/Tuesday very early morning (for 7 hours), Thursday very early morning (for 6 hours), and Friday early evening (for almost 15 hours).


Before we get to this week’s Forecast, I want to mention one more time…

There are some Membership changes that went into effect on Jan. 24th with some new Membership features and some minor price changes ==> You can watch a brief video about those changes here


Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, February 5th:

Monday is a big day (astrologically speaking)! The Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day; it will journey there until Tuesday morning.

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.

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

Monday morning, a challenging Venus/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 6:49am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Friday evening (Feb. 2nd) on; it will remain strong until Wednesday evening (Feb. 7th). This aspect asks us to stretch past injuries and insecurities in our relationships, self-worth, and finances.

If we can bring compassion and a different point of view to these issues, we will reach a new understanding of ourselves and our life journey.

We have the opportunity to learn from one another; ironically, social insecurities can be magnified at this time. Whenever Chiron is involved, we are asked to do some healing work.

As best as you can, use this time to learn about your sore spots. Nobody is perfect: we all have our flaws and idiosyncrasies. It’s ok.

If you get triggered by someone, as best as you can, take it as an opportunity to see where this trigger originated — probably in your childhood.

Bring love and compassion to yourself as you are and as you were. Allow any feelings this may stir up in you. A feeling is just energy that wants to be experienced; it wants to move through us and out.

The more we resist or suppress our feelings, the more we keep them spinning in place. As best as you can, move from the head to the heart. What might change if you had 5% more compassion with yourself and others? What if you just decided to have faith in the healing process?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 13-19 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra? If so, you are more affected by this aspect. 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).

Also on Monday morning, an opportune Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 7:27am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Saturday morning (Feb. 3rd) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday morning (Feb. 7th). This aspect is an opportunity for self-healing that could support our vision for the future and bring us into better alignment with our physical and emotional bodies.

We all have flaws, wounds, and insecurities. The more we can open up to that being ok for ourselves, the less judgmental we will be with others.

This is also a great time to recognize that our so-called flaws and insecurities have become some of our best assets and strengths — how might this be true for you?

Until Wednesday morning, practice gentleness as best as you can; be kind to yourself and others.

Again, remember: an opportunity is an opening, a glimpse of new possibilities — so “opportunities” are not simply handed to us, tied up with a bow — we have to “take” them and make something of them. What will you do with this particular opportunity?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-18 degrees of Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, or Sagittarius? 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 Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Monday at 7:58am EST, a powerful Mercury/Pluto alignment in 0.5 degrees of Aquarius becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build Saturday evening (Feb. 3rd); it will be strong until this Wednesday morning (Feb. 7th). With this alignment, an all-or-nothing attitude becomes very likely — especially in connection to our networks, group affiliations, or communities.

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. Here are some questions you can ask yourself: What fears or concerns do I need to let go of to communicate more powerfully and with passion?

Am I living my life from a place of wanting to protect myself from long-term harm or worst-case scenarios? Or with an open heart, feeling empowered in my daily choices?

If you answered “yes” (or “sometimes”) to the first question, ask yourself: Am I ready to let go of thinking or obsessing about worst-case scenarios? Am I ready to trust the process, give myself permission to grieve (if that’s present), and let go of the urge to protect myself at any cost?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in the following: 0-3 degrees of Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or 28-29 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).

Monday night at 12:06am EST, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for 7 hours, until 7:08am EST (Tuesday morning). Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments.

As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life, and your need to go within and get quiet. You may also feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow.

Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can, be compassionate and kind to yourself.

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 Monday night until Tuesday morning ahead of time.
