This week’s headline items: the Chiron Station ends on Wednesday; the New Moon in Capricorn becomes exact on Thursday morning; Mercury re-enters Capricorn on Saturday late evening; Uranus starts to slow down again (stationing) on Sunday — preparing to end its 5- month Retrograde phase.
There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Tuesday afternoon (for 5.5 hours), Thursday late evening (for 28 minutes), and Saturday early morning (for 17.5 hours).
Before we get to this week’s Forecast, don’t miss this…
January 24th at 1pm EST, we have our first Forecasting Forum of the year!
==> Join us for this powerful 90-minute webinar. Early Bird Special is $32 until Jan. 22nd! ==> After that date it will go up to $37.00
We will talk about Uranus, the planet of breakthroughs, innovation & change, as well as Pluto (the planet of deep transformation & power) moving back into Aquarius (the sign most associated with communities, technology & future visions) — for the second time since last March, and this time it will remain in Aquarius until September 1st.
The third pass will be from Nov. 19th, 2024 until Jan. 2044. This is a 246-year cycle, which means the last time Pluto was in Aquarius was from 1778-1798. This is when the United States achieved its independence from Great Britain — through its desire to create a place “of the people for the people”, a place where freedom and equality were honored and aspired to.
If you want to stay on the pulse of all the planetary shifts for this coming year and see how an understanding of these energies can serve you personally, join us every month.
Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, January 8th:
Monday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday evening. Until then, 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 afternoon, we have lots of energy at our disposal, plus a desire to connect with others and have some adventures. Physical exercise or activities with others are great ways to channel this energy. We are also invited to collaborate; so look for relationships that nurture you, with people that share your values (Moon conjuncts Venus in Sagittarius, exact at 1:44pm EST)
Monday evening, we might find ourselves wanting to explore a new healing modality for body, mind, and heart aimed at renewing our enthusiasm for life.
We are capable of being compassionate and forgiving with ourselves at this time — and a gentle and holistic approach is best. (Moon in Sagittarius trines Chiron in Aries, exact at 7:44pm EST)
Monday later in the evening, a challenging Mercury/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 8:24pm EST. Due to the recent Mercury Retrograde and Station phases, this aspect will last an unusually long time; we started to feel it build on Tuesday morning (Jan. 2nd); it will remain strong until Friday morning (Jan.12th).
We also experienced this aspect several weeks ago, at the end of November — think back to that time and ask yourself: Did I need to slow down? Did I feel overwhelmed or easily distracted? What kept me grounded at that time?
This aspect asks us to stretch ourselves and grow. We may experience a lack of clarity and objectivity. We might make embarrassing errors, neglect important details, or carry some delusions now. Our lack of clarity may make it difficult for others to understand us.
We are more imaginative now and easily swayed by the opinions of others. We can be highly creative and inspired under this influence but also overly sensitive, touchy, or impractical. What might a creative or intuitive approach look like right now?
It can be hard to follow routines. Concentrating on monotonous tasks and work (or study that involves attention to detail or rote learning) may also be challenging at this time. As best as you can, be compassionate with yourself and others during these 10 days.
Ask yourself: What do I feel and perceive when I go beyond all stories, all assumptions, and all meaning?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 22-28 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, or Virgo? 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 Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Neptune rules Pisces).
