Tuesday, January 5th, the Moon begins the day in inquisitive Scorpio and goes void-of-course before noon. Get your more important activities completed before then.
Mercury squares Mars, 6:00 AM: The theme today with this combination of planets is hurry up and wait. Patience will be in short supply today. Since this aspect has been in effect for a couple of days, we have been restless, edgy, defensive and focused on ourselves. This will get you up early this morning. Even though you feel rushed, it is best to take your time in all activities today.
Mercury goes stationary retrograde today at 7:06 AM. Looking back at the past, delays and rethinking will be especially strong today. Mercury has rulership over travel, communications and commerce. Mercury will be direct on January 29th. Start your new projects after that date.
Venus squares Neptune, 8:43 AM: This aspect is just the opposite of the Mercury /Mars connection. This will make us want to push that snooze button several extra times. We do better with these planets if we keep our schedule flexible and make sure that we have plenty of time for ourselves. Our psychic receptors are more open and we are not able to ignore situations as we usually do. This could be an excellent day to take off for a mental health day! Choose your company carefully today. This aspect remains strong for the next two days.
Moon sextiles Jupiter, 11:47 AM: Our energies finally brighten up some, by late morning. This may be the most productive time of the day. We are open to other’s ideas and points of view. This is a good time to present your ideas as well. Take some time to enjoy what you are doing and who you are with!
The Moon goes void-of-course until Wednesday. Focus on what interest you during this void Moon and you will do fine!
Sun conjuncts Pluto, 9:26 PM: Symbolically, when these two planets connect, it represents the death and rebirth process of our soul. Along with Mercury retrograde, this is an excellent aspect to clean out the areas of our life that have clogged due to our reluctance to act on existing problems. Since this aspect has been in effect for the last couple of days and will continue to be in effect for the next couple of days as well, we are showing our true feelings. Power struggles, loss of face, and letting go of the past is all part of this combination. Cast off your fears and don’t let self doubt undermine your power. This is always a good day to review investments in finances and in people!
All times central.
