This week’s headline items: Uranus remains exalted all week; the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact on Wednesday late evening; on Saturday morning, the Sun aligns with Pluto in an exalted degree of Capricorn right before both planets move into the next sign: the Sun moves into Aquarius on Saturday late morning, and Pluto flows suit on Saturday evening. Lastly, Mercury will exit its post-Shadow phase on Saturday night.
There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday late evening (for 16 minutes), Thursday very early morning (for 9 minutes), and Saturday morning (for 1 minute).

Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, January 15th:
Monday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces until 11:49pm EST. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic, and imaginative than usual.
We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy, and affection for all, especially those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.
But that 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.
Monday evening, an opportune Sun/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 7:38pm EST. We have felt this aspect build since Saturday evening (Jan. 13th); it will remain strong until Wednesday evening (Jan. 17th). This aspect is an opportunity to dissolve what no longer serves us and connect to our intuition.
We feel inspired. It’s also a great time to bring a sense of flow and faith to our long-term plans.
Ask yourself: How might meditation or mindfulness — simply being present in the now-moment to all the energies inside and around me — support my manifesting and fulfilling long-term goals? What might a good dose of trust in divine timing and support do for my achievements?
Our capacity for compassion (both toward ourselves and others) is quite strong, especially if we can acknowledge it. Dreams and reality find a way to work together now — any spiritual or creative endeavors that are started during this time will most likely do very well — and it feels good to donate time or money to favored causes.
Remember that this is an “opportunity” — it isn’t just handed to us; we must make it happen.
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 23-28 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus, or Scorpio? 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 or Pisces (the Sun rules Leo; Neptune is the ruler of Pisces).
Monday at 11:33pm EST, we enter a very brief Moon VoC that lasts 16 minutes until 11:49pm EST. Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to be guided by inspiration and fully commit to a project or task that might serve you long-term. As best as you can, listen and trust the subtle messages in your heart that stir you toward success.
As always, with a Moon VoC, don’t start anything new, stick to routine things, or go with the flow as best as you can.
Monday at 11:49pm EST, the Moon enters pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning. Life is an adventure; we’re more open to new ideas and enthusiastic about 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; 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.
This Moon placement starts the build-up towards the first Quarter Moon (exact on Wednesday late evening).
