Thursday, JANUARY 14
Uranus stations and turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion, and Uranus energy hangs heavy in the air this week, with related themes dominating.
As the planet gains speed in the next few weeks, our urge to express our unique self, take some chances or risks, rebel, listen to our instincts, and stir up change are reawakened or externalized.
The Sun forms its yearly alignment with Pluto today. It’s a time when we seek more intensity from our lives and relationships. We’re persistent and our ambitions intensify. The need to gain more control over our lives can feel pressing, and we should guard against temperamental behavior and decision-making. We are strong-willed, resourceful, and focused, and we may very well benefit by keeping things to ourselves and not rushing forward prematurely.
This influence brings the desire for self-mastery to our attention. A small crisis might alert us to an area of life that requires work, improvement, and transformation. The need to gain more control over our lives motivates us, although some paranoia or extremes of thinking could be behind this. The focus should be on recycling, updating, revising, and eliminating so that we can grow.
A Mars-Neptune semi-square this afternoon can serve to diffuse the intensity. In fact, we can feel a bit winded temporarily. Seeing holes or losing some confidence in our plans, desires, and pursuits can be more of a symptom of the need for a bit of inspiration or a well-deserved break than a sign that our plans are lacking. Of course, if there are flaws, adjustments may be necessary. Otherwise, we may need to rest or recuperate before pressing forward. The Moon spends the day in fair-minded Aquarius.
The void Moon occurs from 4:28 AM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to Mercury), until the Moon enters Pisces the next day, Friday, January 15th, at 5:18 PM EST.
