Friday, JANUARY 8
The Moon spends the day in observant, deep-feeling Scorpio. Both Mercury and Venus change signs today. Mercury heads into the sign of Aquarius, where it will transit for longer than usual–until March 15th–due to an upcoming retrograde cycle starting on the 30th. When Mercury is in Aquarius, we are hungry for knowledge and open to new and original ideas. Our thinking is progressive and objective. Our communication and thought patterns are spontaneous and liberal, and perhaps somewhat fragmented.
Venus moves into Capricorn today, and until February 1st, we are more likely to form connections with people who support our ambitions. We value enduring relationships, reliability, and faithfulness. We take expressing our feelings seriously and could take our time warming up to others.
The Sun forms a sextile with Neptune late morning, and we take things as they come, finding meaning in our experiences more readily than usual. This influence stimulates our imagination and sets an excellent mood for respecting our intuition. We’re tuned in, inspired, and charitable. We see things from a perspective that celebrates our differences. What feels like serendipity experienced now may have to do with a good sense of timing and a feeling of being in sync with the universe.
However, as the day advances, tonight’s Mercury-Mars square can agitate. We should watch for hasty communications and skipping steps. We can find ourselves too quickly in disagreement with others, most likely because we’re communicating ineffectively or impatiently. We may be competing for the floor when expressing our ideas, thoughts, and opinions, making it difficult to engage in healthy dialogue.
The void Moon occurs from 8:58 PM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Pluto), until the Moon enters Sagittarius tomorrow, Saturday, January 9th, at 6:15 AM EST.
