2019 is rolling right along fast. The first month is all but gone. This week will see the first day of February. A lot has happened in this first month. It makes me wonder if the whole year will be as eventful as it has started out. The highlight of last week was seeing my mother, meeting a new friend, catching up with an old friend, celebrating my 65th birthday with heart family, and of course that beautiful Super Moon!
The Full Moon last Monday was also eclipsed. Lunar eclipses work on our relationships more than Solar eclipses. They can show us what we need, what we are missing, what we want, and how to find balance in these areas. Given this eclipse was on the Leo Aquarius polarity, we will be balancing between the personal aspects of Leo and the impersonal of Aquarius, the individual, and the group. What does the group want versus what the individual (boss/leader) wants? Eclipses are all tied to change.
The Sun is now in Aquarius and will remain there until February 18, 2019. The Aquarian Sun is original, enjoys learning, innovative, and unconventional. During this transit, we are likely to see the parts of our lives that are outdated and look for new experiences and new ways of doing things. We are ready to shed the rigidity that was imposed on us during the transit through Capricorn.
Mercury is also in Aquarius through February 10, 2019. This energy increases our thirst for knowledge and leads us to develop original, new ideas outside the box. This energy could also spark impromptu communications and thoughts with a rather fragmented and liberal flavor. Inventive, creative thought is at its peak under this influence.
Venus has one more week in Sagittarius. Although Sagittarius is a fire sign, this energy is far less focused on the hot, romantic aspects of fire energy. The love energy here is directed more at the collective. Venus in this sign is far more interested in truth and the higher meaning of things that in the steamy romance she found in Scorpio.
Mars will tour Aries until Valentines Day. Aries is a home sign for Mars and it is here he feels his more powerful. The god of War is courageous, impulsive, and competitive under this sign. The shadow side is that arrogance, impulsiveness, and the inability to be reflective. Some of us will be quite hot-headed.
This week holds some difficult energy for us to navigate through. But today there is a rare Quadruple Yod, aka finger of fate or finger of God forming. A Yod is formed when two planets are in sextile aspect to a third planet and inconjunct to each other forming a quincunx aspect. The two sextiles focus their energy on the apex point while the inconjunct adds antagonistic potential to this aspect.
This Quadruple Yod involves Venus, Chiron, Juno, the North Node, Pallas, and Vesta. The really cool part is the that together the four Yods form a five-pointed star in the chart. And with Venus combined with the female asteroids of Juno, Pallas, Vesta, and the North Node in the mother sign of Cancer.
This makes for a great deal of feminine energy and offers us a path to heal the feminine and discover our soul’s purpose with the help of Chiron, the wounded healer. Don’t forget that men also have a feminine side, so they are not left out of this. This energy might help some who have gender identity issues come to a better understanding of themselves. This configuration will perfect on the 31st and be with us through 2/4.
The next aspect comes Tuesday when Mercury semi-squares Venus. This can bring problems with communication. Our minds can wander and some of us will experience difficulty with mental discipline. On the flip side, some will put effort into polite communication.
This same day the Sun will conjunct Mercury. This energy will not only open communications but will sharpen and refine them. Problem-solving will be easier. We will, however, need to be aware of the impact our spoken or written words might have today.
Thursday, Saturn sextiles Neptune. Saturn brings disciplined energy to our dreams and spirituality. Many will recognize their purpose and enjoy feeling and knowing it. Spiritual and material aspects come together in harmony as we build our lives around increased belief and acceptance.
Friday we have two difficult aspects. First is Mercury semi-square to Chiron. This can cause our communications to be somewhat careless or hurtful. Know what the intention is behind the word of others is not easy.
The big aspect for today is Mars square, Pluto. Oh My! Be aware that this aspect is full of bullying and resistance energy. Satisfying our desires under this influence will more likely than not, be quite difficult. The change will also be difficult. Do your best to stay flexible and spend time developing ways to reach our goals. Powerful feelings, conflicts, and confrontations are likely to show up. Go with it. It’s all good and will ultimately help us to clear emotional clutter.
Saturday brings three aspects with Venus. First is Venus semi-square the Sun. things that annoy another person could prove to be a mirror of our own irritations. Resist the desire for more and instead, seek to find peace for our internal unhappiness through creativity.
Next is Venus trine Uranus. Trines are not difficult aspects but this one can cause us to lose our fear of taking risks and this could lead to difficulties if we don’t think things through. The best parts of this aspect mean that we desire and seek out new, unusual, and different romantic relationships and financial opportunities.
Our desire to commit is not as high as our desire to experiment and seek creative inspiration. This will be a good day to invest in technology, electronics, anything to do with the internet, metaphysics, or art.
The last aspect for this week and Saturday is Venus square Chiron. This one is about our relationships. If you find a roadblock in the romance or commitment department, this aspect might be the cause. This can also cause some feelings of insecurity in our social dealings too.
This week will have its problems but look at them instead as opportunities for growth. If you do find yourself frustrated, sit back, take a deep breath, relax, and let your thoughts and frustrations go for a bit. Getting our knickers in a twist seldom solves anything. Give yourself the chance to regroup and go at things again but from a different perspective.
As you go about your week, please remember that all those government workers still need our help to get caught up. Many have no money for gas, their cupboards are bare, and they are about to be convicted. While the government is no longer shut down, it will still take a bit for them to get their back pay and get their balance back.
Don’t forget to be kind to the people on the street corners too. As fellow humans, they deserve at least your kindness. Give them a nod and a wave and acknowledge their existence. If you feel moved to, you might also slide them some change or a few bills. Remember, that could be you or me.
