Sunday, JANUARY 13
Mercury aligns with Saturn in Capricorn this morning, and we’re inclined to think and communicate about serious matters, responsibilities, duties, and worries or grievances. Our ability to concentrate is enhanced now, possibly because circumstances call for it. There could be an increased need for solitude in order to think or work. This is a time for seeing things realistically and for their practical value, as well as of increased demand for tangible results for our efforts. We might receive serious news, complaints, or practical advice, or engage in a critical conversation. This can mark the start of a new project that involves communications, such as writing, speaking, reporting, etc. There might be a verbal or written commitment made now, or we could experience a form of reality check.
Also today, however, is a Jupiter-Neptune square — a longer-term aspect that will perfect again in June and then September. This influence is considerably different, as it suggests a struggle with our expectations, faith, and dreams. We’re easily misled under this influence, whether by others or by our own unrealistic or inflated expectations. We may need to deal with the consequences of disorganization, extravagance, neglect, or exaggeration. The tendency for restlessness magnifies, and routine seems to be particularly unsatisfying now. This is a time when something or someone disillusions us. We need to watch for a tendency to evade and avoid things, as well as for writing ourselves new beliefs or philosophies that justify this avoidance. There can be a lot of wandering, meandering, and lack of groundedness happening with this influence. We might have troubles setting boundaries for ourselves. There is a need to come down to earth from time to time. Some routines, discipline, regularity, and rhythms should be enforced to counteract this tendency (and today’s Mercury-Saturn conjunction can help). Spiritual inspiration is a potential, however, as we shed false beliefs, expectations, and paths.
The Moon spends the day in assertive, independent Aries.
