Friday January 15, 2021

The Moon is VOC until 2:16 PM PST when the Moon's arrival in Pisces begins to form a sextile to Mars and Uranus. The afternoon's energy is stirring and restores intense determination and may also encourage us to bring together allies. A willingness to sacrifice comes with our renewed determination but we may not have any clear idea of how much our sacrifices may cost us personally. Restlessness and impulsiveness is building and may very well discourage any consideration that we should 'look before we leap'. The disconnect between practicality and wild expectations seems to be growing.



Weekly Summary

JANUARY 10 - JANUARY 16

"The mental flexibility of the wise man permits him to keep an open mind and enables him to readjust himself whenever it becomes necessary for a change. "
— Malcolm X

This week offers an important and transformational new beginning under Tuesday's Capricorn New Moon (9:00 PM 23° Capricorn) tightly conjunct Pluto. But there are still many things to fall away or be sacrificed on the 'altars of our past' before we can find a way to embrace the changes offered or proposed. There are strong tendencies to wildly over-optimistic expectations in this week's environment that may drive our strong determination — potentially setting us up for profound disappointments. Mars is drawing near the stationary direct Uranus this week, stirring a great deal of nervous energy and impulsiveness that may be seeking to bulldoze anything in our way before we have fully contemplated the ramifications of the destruction we are pursuing. Our impulsiveness may begin to overwhelm us if we aren't able to find creative channels to express the building energy. For some of us, this week may only represent a sense of loss, for others, a strong sense of destiny. Whatever our responses, we should not expect to find many tangible, material rewards for our efforts. The Capricorn 'Goat' aspires to reach the pinnacle of success but there are great sacrifices required and, without a requisite spiritual perspective, we may find the journey to the top to be empty of any real meaning. The Capricorn influence sometimes tempts us to focus solely on material rewards or purely status-linked acquisitions. What is required is detachment and flexibility — an open mind — in order to find the valuable opportunities for new understanding and insight that will be rolled out under this new lunar cycle. The involvement of Pluto is sure to keep the ground shifting beneath our feet but if we are able to keep our expectations in check, our impulsiveness properly channeled, and our focus on remaining teachable, we may be able to ride this transformational wave of energy to soaring new heights of awareness and an entirely new sense of true stability.

The Moon is VOC for most of the day on Sunday, leaving us to explore and research but offering little hope of any proofs to announce. Optimism is high on Monday. There may be some tantalizing hints of great material rewards but we should be cautious of getting our hopes too high. Great sacrifices may be required to actual claim those rewards. Tuesday's Capricorn New Moon, conjunct Pluto offers powerful, transformational opportunities but not without sacrifices on the altars of our past. We're likely to feel building energy on Wednesday as Uranus stations to go direct. We may feel a strong sense of destiny and determination. The Moon is VOC again nearly all day on Thursday. Although the Sun's conjunction with Pluto may stir some determination, there is little focus or practical drive to help us follow through on our goals. Friday's Pisces Moon encourages a willingness to sacrifice in pursuit of our most prized goals but by Saturday, that sacrifice may quickly turn to martyrdom and even zealotry. Rigidity is the enemy to be quickly dispatched. We need to stay flexible and willing to gain new perspectives and new understanding.

Saturday January 16, 2021

Sacrifice — to the point of martyrdom — is encouraged in this atmosphere, in pursuit of some kind of cherished goal. The intensity of our determination may lead us directly into the realm of 'zealotry' if we don't have some personal awareness or individual sense of responsibility. Rigidity in our aims and goals is more likely to create breaks' rather than breakthroughs. The recognition of our need to remain flexible may not be easily attained, especially in today's intensely determined environment. The rolling waves of transformative energy may either stir our creativity or leave us prone to being pushed aside by the 'incoming tide of change'. By finding enough detachment to recognize that there are indeed "things we cannot change", we may actually come to understand how to "change the things we can".

Sunday January 17, 2021

We find ways to tame some of the extraordinary flows of energy today. 'Zealotry' is tempered by clever strategies and an eye towards future plans. Today's 'intrigues' are subtle but powerful. The Moon's sextile to Pluto and the Sun offer potent intuitive guidance to help us navigate this rapidly changing atmosphere. Although such intuition might be expected to provide expanded awareness and broader perspectives, there is a singleness of purpose in this atmosphere that is likely to keep us laser-focused on our individual aims and goals.The square of Jupiter to Uranus perfects today and is broadly inspirational. But the presence of Mars, as it nears the conjunction with Uranus, stirs impulsiveness to potentially uncontrollable levels which makes it extremely difficult to look at the 'Big Picture' or coordinate common effort. The Moon is briefly VOC this evening, from 7:44 PM until 11:07 PM PST



Weekly Summary

JANUARY 17 - JANUARY 23

"If it had been possible to build the Tower of Babel without ascending it, the work would have been permitted."
— Franz Kafka

This week brings us to a peak of unpredictable, erratic, individual activity under the Mars-Uranus conjunction on Wednesday. Following last week's Mars-Saturn square, where the energy of Mars was channeled, restricted, or constrained, the independence of Mars is unleashed by Uranus. The conjunction can display erratic, impulsive — even explosive elements but we should not discount the creative power of the Mars-Uranus conjunction in favor of focusing only on the more explosive and impulsive elements. The square of Jupiter in Aquarius to Mars and Uranus, offers up the wisdom of seeing the Big Picture and the importance of working towards common effort for the common good. However, seeing this Big Picture requires individual self-discipline and the willingness to recognize that there are, in fact, more perspectives than our own narrow, individual vision can hope to offer. The challenge is to recognize this truth in the midst of the impulsive, high-energy environment that we find this week. The Sun arrives in Aquarius on Tuesday, just one day before the Mars-Uranus conjunction. The Sun's shift begins to signal a change in our approach but, at least initially, we may be presented with increasingly erratic and unpredictable individual action, guided by clever, intellectual insights. The lack of an overarching strategy or a true sense of direction may be stunning to those who have managed to muster enough self-discipline and detachment to gain a broader perspective. Jupiter's lesson in this mix is to show us the pitfalls of impulsive actions that do not have a foundation in a broad perspective. Once we move past the mid-week Mars-Uranus conjunction, we can more easily access the wisdom of Jupiter. A Ceres-Neptune conjunction helps us to look beyond grand visions and castles in the sky in order to begin to build a new foundation based upon the new insights coming out of the powerful energy released at least year's Winter Solstice. By the end of the week, The Sun reaches a stabilizing conjunction with Saturn. Rather than feeling oppressive or constricting, Saturn's energy helps us to regain focus and a sense of direction that has been a struggle to maintain since the beginning of the year. A Venus-Neptune on Saturday sextile offers the opportunity for creative solutions and new connections.

We find ways to tame the nervous energy on Sunday through the use of clever strategies and an eye towards future plans. Monday's Aries Moon conjuncts Chiron, which may increase focus and determination. Nonetheless, many may strain towards some kind of Utopian perfection. The building energy is full of excitement, enthusiasm, and impulsiveness but determinedly individualistic — without a clearly formulated guiding, common principle. The Sun arrives in Aquarius on Tuesday, encouraging individual eccentricities and clever, intellectual insights. Impulsiveness and instability peaks on Wednesday. With awareness, we will find creative ways to blend individual perspectives with broader perspectives. There is some hope of finding wisdom and better insight into a Bigger Picture on Thursday. We have some sense of the importance of becoming 'right-sized' and recognizing our unique place within a larger context. We begin to see evidence of transformational change on Friday under the Moon's trine to Pluto. Creative solutions blossom under Saturday's Venus-Neptune sextile. The Sun's conjunction with Saturn feels remarkably stabilizing, rather than oppressive or constraining.
