The first month of the new year is already slipping away as we begin this week. Did the Full Moon illuminate something previously hidden from your view? That’s what they do and this time it might have been with regard to romance, creative projects or affairs involving children. Monday afternoon the Moon switches signs to Virgo and we focus on holistic health therapies, work/service and care of our dependents. This is an excellent time to stock up on vitamins, herbs, and other health aids to keep you in the pink.
Speaking of health–I mentioned in my last blog piece that the Full Moon was sitting directly on my Sun–yay me. What has (re)surfaced is a rather pesky, persistent health issue, and fairly serious so I am going to take a short hiatus to review my work and business situations; no doubt changes will have to be made. I will reboot this blog 10 February 2012 and appreciate your patience while I try to get my health back on track.
If you receive my astrological newsletter, the February overview will also be delayed. I will include the pertinent Celestial events that transpire while I’m on break here in this blog, so no one has to miss a thing. Not currently receiving my Astro Ezine? Sign up here!
3-9 February Celestial Events:
- 3 February 2012; Last Quarter Moon at 15 degrees of Scorpio (5:56 AM) – Review plans for the current lunar cycle and wrap up those items that are complete. Plan to reboot or launch new projects after the New Moon.
- 9 February 2012; New Moon at 22 degrees of Aquarius (11:20 PM).
But enough of the coming attractions for February, let’s see what the upcoming week has in store (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT).
Sunday 27 January 2013 (0 Stars): Duties and responsibilities may wear you down in the early morning hours when the Moon squares Saturn at 3:43 AM; feelings of depression may also be a challenge if you’re up early in the day, so think in terms of self-care if today feels particularly challenging. Avoid getting caught up in a useless cycle of what you coulda, woulda, shoulda done when the Moon opposes Mercury at 10:09 AM; the tension that comes with this aspect may have your mind jumping around like long tailed cats on a porch full of rockers. Again, your best bet is to get in some self-care work to calm down and return to an easy, focused state.
Monday 28 January 2013 (0 Stars): As you can tell by the star count, we get little help from Celestial forces as we start the work week. Watch your health (and your temper) when the Moon opposes Mars at 8:59 AM. The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until 3:27 PM when it enters Virgo, so avoid starting new projects until the Moon switches signs.
Close relationships bear watching as all may not be what it seems when the Moon opposes Neptune at 7:07 PM; your thinking will be clouded at this point, it’s probably best to postpone making any important decisions until you can think a bit more clearly.
Moon in Virgo colors: Black, pale blue, navy blue, green, gray, tan, or gold. Crystals: Peridot, green jade, agate, moss agate, carnelian, or rhodochrosite. Incense/Essential oils: lavender, mint, honeysuckle or patchouli.
Tuesday 29 January 2013 (2 Stars): The stars are back on the scoreboard, but we begin the day with a square between the Moon and Jupiter at 3:14 AM; over doing is a no, no; over spending, over doing, over promising–just say no. The transformative power of the Moon forming a trine to Pluto at 10:36 AM is excellent for revealing mysterious maladies or overturning negative habit patterns; therapeutic work done at this time might be particularly powerful. A sextile between the Moon and Saturn at 12:13 PM is an excellent time for getting your home office in tip-top shape or planning your pet projects for a successful outcome.
Wednesday 30 January 2013 (1 Star): Jupiter returns to forward motion at 3:37 AM–great news for all air sign natives, but especially for Gemini peeps. Romantic, creative and even life force/health issues can be a challenge when the Sun squares Saturn at 2:49 PM. Fixed sign natives (Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus and Leo) will particularly want to pay attention to nagging health symptoms. Make time for a loved one or drop into your favorite salon to look and feel your best when the Moon trines Venus at 5:59 PM. The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until it enters Libra at 10:36 PM (time to focus on key relationships for the next couple of days).
Moon in Libra colors: Black, royal or cerulean blue, violet, pink and pastel shades. Crystals: Agate, fire agate, opal, rose quartz, aquamarine, celestite, or jade. Incense/Essential oils: Mint, rose, violet, or vanilla.
Thursday 31 January 2013 (2 Stars): The Moon in opposition to Uranus at 8:43 AM creates upsets, shocking news and irritable/unstable behavior in others–try to keep a low profile during this period. Good fortune and or optimism reigns when the Moon forms a trine to Jupiter at 10:00 AM. The Moon square Pluto at 5:16 PM reveals secrets and brings out the worst in bullies, VIP’s and those with anger management issues; avoid known suspects like the plague this afternoon! Clever, intuitive ideas pop up for you to capture and activate during the next lunar cycle–take good notes so you’ll know what to do later.
Friday 1 February 2013 (5 Stars): A stellar day that builds until 5:03 PM when the Moon trines Mercury; take good notes, there’s bound to be a lot of great conversation going on today! The Moon is void of course until tomorrow morning so postpone launches until the Moon enters Scorpio at 4:02 AM. Mars enter Pisces at 5:54 PM (time to rev up those creative projects and make good on your promise to meditate more). Later Venus hops into Aquarius at 6:47 PM; our beauty aesthetics and love interests will take a walk on the wild side until 26 February when Venus enters Pisces.
Saturday 2 February (4 Stars): The Moon trines Mars at 4:39 AM–expect to be up and at ’em early in the day. Love and money run into obstacles when the Moon squares Venus at 4:57 AM; come up with some winning solutions via meditation when the Moon trines Neptune at 7:45 AM. You may be feeling the urge to get something off your chest when the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto at 10:14 PM–only you know whether it’s better to speak up or hold your piece. The moody blues arrive courtesy of the Moon conjoining Saturn at 11:45 PM; self-care is your best bet for beating feelings of angst or depression.
Moon in Scorpio colors: Black, red, dark red, orange, brown or maroon. Crystals: Jet, obsidian, tiger’s eye, pearl, amethyst or aquamarine. Incense/Essential Oils: Honeysuckle, gardenia, vanilla, patchouli, or myrrh.
