We are headed toward the middle of the first month of 2013–though you wouldn’t know it from some of the dates I have written of late; are you still writing 2012 too? Anyway, we have a new lunar phase up to bat, the waxing Aquarius Moon settles into Pisces Monday morning (after a long void of course on Sunday) and a First Quarter Moon on Friday (which means reboot your plans folks). Let’s get to it (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST)!
Sunday 13 January 2013 (1 Star): The problem isn’t challenging aspects–there is only one, but it’s a high powered conjunction between the Moon and Mars at 12:37 AM (terrible for sleeping, unfortunately), and then the Moon is void of course until the wee hours of Monday morning. So plan a day of rest, cleaning up, finishing up and or meditation–no new launches during the lengthy void of course period please.
Monday 14 January 2013 (4 Stars): We begin the work week under the energy of a water sign for the second week in a row when the Moon enters Pisces at 2:49 AM. Make sure that you have pen and paper at the ready for the monthly Moon-Neptune conjunction at 5:20 AM; who knows what tantalizing tidbits of prophecy the Universe will send via your dreams? Just be ready to catch them when they arrive! Avoid over spending, over promising or over doing things when the Moon opposes Jupiter at 2:26 PM; thankfully money and love receive a bit of a boost from a Moon-Venus sextile at 3:21 PM! So perhaps humanity makes it through Monday unscathed after all!
Some powerful affirmations, healing or therapeutic modalities offer hope and transformation when the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto at 7:48 PM. Don’t let down early though; take advantage of a trine between the Moon and Saturn at 9:01 PM to sort through your tax paperwork, de-clutter, organize and otherwise get yourself together as we close out this first day of the work week.
Moon in Pisces: All shades of blue, green or purple; turquoise, white or yellow. Crystals: Amethyst, aquamarine, moonstone, turquoise or bloodstone. Incense/Essential oils: Gardenia, honeysuckle, lavender, or sage.
Tuesday 15 January 2013 (5 Stars): We build all day toward a sextile between the Moon and Mercury at 10:54 PM–a great day for handling communication matters and we’re free of void of course energy, so it’s a pretty good day for a change!
Wednesday 16 January 2013 (5 Stars): This is a banner day that begins with a sextile between the Moon and Sun at 1:32 AM; if you’re up at this hour jot down brilliant downloads, but work on them later since the Moon is void of course after that aspect. The Moon enters Mars ruled Aries at 8:07 AM; later Venus conjoins Pluto at 5:27 PM. What happens when our affections conjoin with the planet of Power & Mystery? Who knows–maybe your dream mate (or career move) appears! Keep your eyes open, there should be some moving and shaking within the 24 hours before and after this aspect. This energy is amplified by the Moon conjoining Uranus at 5:38 PM; Uranus is the Awakener, bringing shocks, surprises and ingenious creative ideas. Lives will change today–maybe yours will be among them!
The Universe tosses us a bit of luck to close out the day in the form of a sextile between Moon and Jupiter at 8:28 PM; if you journal, you might want to jot down some thoughts about this day or the week as events reveal themselves to you.
Moon in Aries colors: Red, scarlet, pink, white, or yellow. Crystals: Bloodstone, carnelian, amethyst, coral or ruby. Incense/Essential oils: frankincense, dragon’s blood, cinnamon, musk or myrrh.
Thursday 17 January 2013 (2 Stars): Angry folks, VIP’s and bosses on a tear–that’s the energy that starts this day as Venus squares Pluto at 2:38 AM. Later our love and money situations hit major obstacles as the Moon squares Venus at 3:37 AM. We discipline ourselves and sort out the mess when Venus forms a sextile to Saturn at 8:03 AM–and all’s right with our world again. A trip to the gym or a run helps us work off the stress from the day; a sextile between the Moon and Mars at 6:27 PM gives us the energy to make it happen.
Friday 18 January 2013 (2 Stars): Sleep may be hard to come by when the powerful energy of the Sun combines with the energy of communications master Mercury at 12:56 AM; well, you should at least get some great creative ideas (or maybe have an amazing chat with a new romantic partner–thanks to that Venus conjunction with Pluto last Wednesday)! The First Quarter Moon arrives at 3:45 PM (Moon square the Sun at 29 degrees of Aries); check your key goals and plans to see if they are threatening to jump the track somewhere; do some quick recalibrating to get things back under control.
Communications may be offline when the Moon squares Mercury at 4:40 PM; the Moon is void of course after that aspect so go with the flow and put off new projects until the Moon enters Taurus at 5:36 PM. Creatives and mystics will enjoy the Moon-Neptune sextile at 8:49 PM; take time out to do some art work, dance, make music or just meditate to get the best from this aspect. Mercury enters its higher octave sign of Aquarius at 11:25 PM–your best thinking and creating is yet to come!
Moon in Taurus colors: Green, spring green, green turquoise, cream, blue or pink. Crystals: Jade, peridot, malachite, coral, red coral, opal or rhodonite. Incense/Essential oils: honeysuckle, ylang-ylang, violet or vanilla.
Saturday 19 January 2013 (2 Stars): Make time for law of attraction, affirmations or visualization work when the Moon trines Pluto at 1:30 PM. Happy Birthday Aquarians–the Sun enters Aquarius at 1:52 PM!
The Moon in opposition to Saturn at 3:05 PM may bring challenges in business, with partners or in your health (particularly if you are a Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus or Leo Sun Sign native). The trine between the Moon and Venus at 9:17 PM brings a bright light to your love life or to money concerns and should go a long way toward helping you forget your troubles!
