Moon in Scorpio

Venus sextile Mars

Sun sextile Mars

Well, it seems that the number 19 is the new black – or at least the place to be…planetarily speaking…with Pluto, the Sun, Venus and Mars all at this degree it’s getting a tad on the crowded side. But what does it all mean?

For a start, aside from the fact that Pluto is still in play from yesterday, whenever you have a sextile you have an opportunity – but when the sextiles involve personal planets, the opportunities are fleeting and gone in the blink of an eye.

Mars is in common, so we have activity – social activity, physical activity. But, and here’s the rub, under a Scorpio Moon the intensity level is ramped up a tad.   So from an astro weather viewpoint? Bring a brolly…just in case.

Here we go again…same same as yesterday but different. You see, today Pluto is involved – so that will ramp up the intensity a tad. There could be insecurities, there could be infatuation (with someone or something), there could be fascination, but remember kiddies, we’re playing in the Capricorn sandpit, so let’s keep it real and play nicely together.

Ok, it looks like there’s lot’s happening in the skies, but I’m not issuing a storm warning just yet. Besides, here in South East Queensland at this time of the year, we don’t have ordinary storms, we get “super cells” or “rain bombs”… yes, I’m being flippant.

Why not? Simply because you’ve generally got to try pretty hard not to see the positive when Sun and Venus are sextile Jupiter. Sure, shit can still go down – as it can and does do – but don’t go blaming these aspects on it. And don’t go blaming the Libra Moon either – you’ll need to be a tad more creative than that.

In fact, if you’ve been on leave for the Christmas break and this is your first day back at work, today’s astro weather could help you ease back into it and catch up socially with what’s been happening.

But what about Mars sextile Pluto, I hear you ask? Nah, these two together are really only interested in getting the new working year off to a powerful start. Ready, set…oh, they’re already gone.

Moon in Virgo

You know that thing you’ve been putting off? That needs you to focus & concentrate on the details. Do it now. No more excuses. Just remember – there’s no such thing as absolute perfection, so try not to be overly critical or judgmental – especially towards yourself.

Moon in Virgo

Mercury trine Uranus

Mars conjunct Jupiter

There’s a standing joke in our house that when I come up with one of my brilliant ideas – such as, for example, the electronic drum kit in the steering wheel for when you’re stationary in traffic – my hubby will say something like ‘How long did it take you to think of that one, darling? While you were brushing your teeth?’ Generally, that’s how my ideas come to me, and in most cases, his response is spot on. Also, in most cases, by the time I’ve left for work – which these days amounts to walking up 6 stairs into the home office – I’ve already forgotten about whatever flash of brilliance so dazzled me just a few short minutes ago.

Let’s just say that it’s a good thing for our finances that very few of my brilliant ideas make it to the planning stage- and even fewer move past it.

Today’s star aspect is a little like the life-cycle of my big ideas: a bursting flash of brilliance (Mercury trine Uranus) skipping the planning phase and moving straight to a conjunction between Mars and Jupiter – where you could be tempted to go straight into action without considering the consequences. Putting your money where your mouth, so to speak, isn’t necessarily a bad thing – unless those plans you want to put into action haven’t been well thought through.

How do I know they haven’t been well thought through, I hear you ask? Simple – when Mercury links up with Uranus the ideas come thick and fast from new and unexpected directions. This is great from a stimulus viewpoint, and can absolutely get your mind ticking along but – and it’s a big but – Uranus is not long direct and still sitting at 24 Aries. He’s stamping his foot a tad – like a petulant toddler. What’s worse, he’s bored – and he’s telling you so…over and flipping over. And what tends to happen when you’ve got a bored toddler telling you over and flipping over that he’s bored already? Eventually, he’s going to have a tantrum or you’ll make a rash decision – neither of which have the potential to be pretty.

If you have planets (or your MC or Ascendant) at 24 degrees of any of the cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Libra or Aries) you’d probably know about this without me having to tell you. I have Jupiter at 24 Cancer 34’- and yes, I’m very well aware of it!

There is, however, an exception to this possibility – and that is the fact that this is the third time that Mercury has aligned with Uranus in recent weeks. The first was 25/11/17 and then 10/12/17 when both planets were retrograde. If you took the opportunity to review the thoughts and ideas you had at this time, you might just be ready to put them into action. If so, Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio will provide the focus, intensity, and energy to do so.

Moon in Leo

Moon into Virgo

Enjoy the stimulation that contacts with different people, activities or ideas might bring today. If you are feeling restless or impulsive, use that energy to make small changes or tweaks to your daily routines.

Astro Weather: January 4, 2018

Moon in Leo

Let’s focus today on some F words – no, not that one…words like Fun, Friends, Family, Flair, Feature. Here’s a few more that don’t start with F – Romance, Play, Creativity, Performance. Then there’s Ego and Pride – both of which can be easily damaged today…

Watch out for potential storms as the passionate, dramatic Leo Moon squares off against a Mars/Jupiter pairing in Scorpio. If you need to let off steam, do so intentionally and positively – through exercise. It could just stop things from being blown out of proportion.

Moon in Cancer

Venus sextile Neptune

Moon in Cancer is always a reminder to listen to your gut instincts, so rather than swallow your feelings, consider whether what you’re experiencing is really personal or simply perceived to be so.

With Venus and Neptune aligned today, slowing down (if possible) could also stimulate your imagination and inspire your daydreams. If possible, capture these in some way – snippets from your fantasy could provide practical ideas for the future.
