Busy, Fun and a Bit Unpredictable This Week

Weekly Astrology Overview:

A much easier week is ahead for us and one that likely will be filled with ideas, conversations, fun and social events.  That’s not only in the stars, but here in the USA Memorial Day weekend is coming up and that means potential BBQ’s, picnics and family gatherings!

The biggest astrology news of the week is both the Sun and Mercury moving into Gemini and conjunct one another on the same day!  I would be prepared for busy-ness, a lot of activity and possible scattering of energy as we may lose focus easily with so much going on around us!  The only other “big news” this week is Mars sextile Uranus, where we may feel restless or impatient, and we then jump into making rash decisions.  Let’s break down the week:

Monday, May 20, 2019

MondayWe begin the work week with the Moon in Sagittarius.  There is hope, optimism and excitement.  We’re looking forward, having left the emotional full Moon in Scorpio behind us!

The Moon squares Neptune today.  We may be in a dreamy state of mind and feel like escaping reality.  We may be super sensitive to our environments as well, so make sure you stay away from toxins – including people who have a negative effect on you.

Later today the Moon conjuncts Jupiter leaving us with good feelings and a generosity of spirit.  We are less likely to get triggered by events or people around us.  About the only possible negative here is that we might latch onto an idea or objective and become obsessed with it.  If you experience this effect, then you have to look deeply within your subconscious mind to discover what this means for you.

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

While you slept, the Moon moved into Capricorn, the Sun moved into Gemini and then TuesdayMercury moved into Gemini!  That’s a lot of energy surges happening while you’re trying to sleep, so don’t be surprised if your night was restless and/or you took part in many different dreams!

Let’s start with the Moon in Capricorn which is business-oriented and task centered.  We can get things done, that is if the Sun and Mercury didn’t both move into Gemini at nearly the same time!  LOL

The Sun and Mercury in Gemini are sociable, communicative, and easily distracted.  That could make getting anything done nearly impossible as we are pulled in many different directions.  It does make for excitement and sharing of ideas though, and eventually the work gets done.  So relax and enjoy the conversation, exchange of ideas, and the minds  capriciousness for now 🙂

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Wed imageToday the Moon is in Capricorn and Mars sextiles Uranus.  On the one hand, there is much opportunity to get things done, and on the other hand, things may happen that distract you or take you away from your stated goals and intentions for the day.  I would say that this is a day to master “going with the flow” as nothing may go as expected!

Mars and Uranus are both very active planets, although Mars is more deliberate, he is debilitated and frustrated a bit by his placement in Cancer right now.  Uranus, in earthy Taurus, is also slowed down by his placement. These two planets coming together could spell frustration, irritation, restlessness and erratic behavior.  Be careful with what you say or do today.  Be especially careful around metal and electricity!  That includes driving!  This energy could last for a few days!

The Moon is also conjunct both Saturn and Pluto today.  There could be emotional undercurrents fueling the Mars/Uranus energies.  Watch for becoming overly reactive to people and events today. Remember that you always have a choice on how to react or respond to what is going on in your life.

Thursday, May 23, 2019

The Moon is void-of-course from last night at 8:57 pm PT until today at 10:49 am PT when Happy-Thursday-022it moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius.  I sincerely hope the Moon’s move helps us to see things more clearly and with less emotion than the last couple of days!

The Moon in Aquarius often brings us brilliant flashes of inspiration or epiphanies.  Things that were hidden from us can burst out in a moment of absolute clarity.  The Moon squares Uranus today, the ruler of the sign Aquarius.  We want excitement, freedom and movement, but with the rebellious nature of Uranus in Aquarius we may not necessarily be able to make decisions that are good for us.  Refrain from doing anything rash or risky!

Friday, May 24, 2019

Friday pandaThe Moon is in Aquarius all day today, but has a more peaceful use for the energy as Venus is also involved with the Moon.  For those of you in the USA anticipating a 3-day weekend, there is enough energy to make the day go quickly, but not enough to create havoc.  Try to complete projects and clear off your desk so that you start next week with ease.

the weekend graphicNOTE:  I’m including Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the weekend astrology because of the Memorial weekend in the USA.

First a few words about the weekend for those of you who are celebrating a long one by camping or getting out into the great outdoors.  The Moon transitions into Pisces late Saturday, and spends Sunday and Monday in the sign of water.  Be Careful – especially around water this weekend.  Keep your wits about you when boating or swimming or participating in other water sports.

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius is ready to play!  The only major aspect for the day is a sextile to Jupiter and that means good times!  Have fun, but remember that the Moon in Aquarius can be unpredictable, and this makes it a day to try not to take risks.  Be safe and sane while you’re having fun!

Sunday, May 26, 2019

The Moon has transitioned into Pisces, generally speaking a sign of calmer, more compassionate energy.  But, the Moon actively engages with Uranus, the Sun and Mars today, adding unpredictability and aggressiveness to the energy.  We may be tempted to overdo it, so have perspective and a sense of proportionality to everything you do!  Keep it a fun and relaxing time.

Monday, May 27, 2019  Happy Memorial Day

Monday memeToday the Moon spends the day in Pisces and is challenging Mercury.  We may be feeling a little tired or low energy to begin the day, especially if we have had an especially busy or action-packed weekend.  Our minds may not be clear either, so take some time to relax, breathe and enjoy the time spent away from the usual daily work you do.

The Moon conjuncts Neptune today as well, and we may feel especially creative and imaginative.  Our intuition is also heightened on a day like today.  Pay attention to the signs, symbols and images that come up in your mind as they may hold the key to your potential.

Make it a great week everyone, and enjoy the extended time for the weekend!

Love & Blessings,
Janet Hickox

 

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy

Astrology for the Week of March 24-31, 2019

I hope everyone had a spectacular Spring or Fall Equinox and enjoyed the shifting energies of last week.  If you tuned into the spirit and quality of the time we just passed through, what you might find is that the world is awash in new potential, and we humans are not immune to the rush of newness.  After all, the 0 Aries point (known as Spring or Fall) marks the beginning of the astrological new year – all is indeed, new!

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy.  And, perhaps best of all, Mercury turns from retrograde into Direct motion.  I would say that the character of the week or the buzz word of this week is CHANGE.

Let’s dig in and get the details:

SundaySunday, March 24, 2019 –  While I normally include Sunday in the previous week, I didn’t write a complete post for last week, so I want to make sure we start there.  The Moon is in Scorpio for the day and things are not light, airy and breezy, but more intense, passionate with hidden currents moving through the collective.  That doesn’t mean it’s a bad day, but rather it makes it a good day to do some personal processing work, or try to get to the bottom of something.

Mercury Rx conjunct Neptune – There are two distinct potentials to how this transit can play out today.  The positive expression is that it enables you to think and express yourself with subtlety, expressing ideas and feelings that you don’t always have access to.  Artistic and creative expression is heightened, but as you are easily accessing the subconscious realms, not everyone may understand what you are trying to convey.  During this time our imaginative and mysterious inclinations are favored.

The more negative expression of this transit occurs when our imagination pushes us into illusion or unreality.  We may feel like we can enact our fantasies, and then when this transit is over the reality of our folly reveals our confused and unclear thinking.  This is not likely going to be a day of making big, life-changing decisions.

Another difficulty with this transit is the possibility of communication missteps.  We aren’t thinking clearly and our words, though they sound good to us, are not being heard by other people in their best light.  What you say may be easily misunderstood, so take care to be clear when communicating anything of importance.

Hello MondayMonday, March 25, 2019 – While you slept, the Moon moved in Sagittarius.  I just love starting a work week with the Moon in go-ahead mood and in the sign of Sagittarius.  We are moved to see the humor in things today, and we greet the day with a sense of adventure and optimism.  About the only thing to watch out for is an over-optimistic view that focuses on big ideas, but has few details.  Remember that if you are embarking on something new now, it takes both the big picture and the details to make it complete.

Moon trine Sun – Today’s accomplishments feel good and provide the basis for what will come later.  Meeting new people today may have an impact on you that lasts.  If something feels right, then it probably is right.  Your job is to put your best foot forward and follow through!

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 – Venus ingress Pisces  Venus in Pisces

Today Venus leaves Transpersonal Aquarius for Transcendent Pisces. Themes and values like Love, Universal Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Abundance & Flow emerge into our awareness.

Now Venus puts on her ethereal garb. In Pisces, Venus is exalted – meaning she is very comfortable in the sign.  She can get caught up in the magic of romance as love and attraction get idealized. The lines get blurred for us between what is real and what is imagined. On the other hand, we are more compassionate and sensitive to one another’s pain which moves us to altruism and acts of kindness and generosity. Venus is in Pisces until April 20.

Wed imageWednesday, March 27, 2019 – The Moon is Void-of-course until 7:08 am PT/10:08 am ET this morning before it moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.  Everybody is into getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done. It’s all about the proper attitude and appropriate emotional expression.  Get your work done, then let your hair down.  The Moon favors innovation and creative thinking today as it has a good relationship with Venus and with Uranus.

The Moon also squares the Sun today and that means that we have reached the “Crisis of Consciousness” part of the lunar cycle. We are faced with the inner shifts that need to take place in order for us to complete our New Moon intentions.  Let go of fear, resistance to change and limiting thinking and you can soar!

Venus sextile Uranus – This combination might make it difficult for you to stay focused on work today as required by the Moon in Capricorn.  In that case, you might feel yourself counting down the moments until you can get out of the office and into party mode.  That would be the best way to utilize this energy.  Work where appropriate and play where/when appropriate!  Or mix the two if that seems like a viable option.

You might also attract new friends under this influence, and they may be people who have a revolutionary effect upon you – changing your outlook, attitude or life in some interesting way.  Everyone seems interesting and interested.

Thursday, March 28, 2019 –  Mercury Direct Today

Early this morning Mercury, planet of Communication, the Mind and Transportation, Thankful Thursdayleaves retrograde for direct motion. We can all breathe a sigh of relief – except we still have the “retroshade” to deal with for a few more weeks.  The messenger planet has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5 reminding us of our Spiritual, Intuitive and Esoteric connections.  Now with Mercury moving forward we can take the lessons and revelations that we discovered about ourselves out into the world.  It’s now the time to demonstrate your as the embodiment of Spirit.  When your mind forgets it’s connection, try asking the question, “What if ___________?”  For instance, What if I am the creator of my reality and can change my life positively? or What if we can live in a world of peace and harmony?  This evokes “allowing” energy and turns the mind toward more positive territory.  Perfect for taking Mercury’s retrograde lessons out to the world you live in!

The Moon is in Capricorn all day, and she is making good connections to Mercury & Neptune.  You might remember that on Monday these two (Mercury & Neptune) were in a conjunction and our imagination and creativity were stimulated.  Now is the time to take those ideas and turn them into concrete format.  Make a plan and execute the plan.  Later in the day the Moon conjuncts Saturn conferring focus, concentration and determination to our projects.

Friday, March 29, 2019

Friday panda

The Moon sits in Capricorn for most of the day today as it conjuncts Pluto, trines Mars and squares Uranus.  The day can alternate between powerful, confrontational, unpredictable and back again, with many possibilities in between!  By the end of today, you will be so ready for the weekend!

It’s not that it is a bad day or anything.  It is just demanding of our time and attention.  We might feel like pushing the river, when of course that might blow up in our faces.  There is strength and high energy available today.  And, as long as we aren’t frustrated or angry, we can put that to good use in getting things done.  If frustration/anger builds up today, release it through physical activity.  And Uranus adds an element of surprise and unpredictability to the day, so be ready for anything!

Mars will be sitting at 29 Taurus as he prepares to move into Gemini on Saturday/Sunday.  Pay attention to what is ending, what is in process of completion and what possibilities are opening up for you.  Prepare for an energetic shift in your ability to take action and move forward.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius playfully engages the Sun in doing things in new, creative, innovative, and unexpected ways.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway. Situations beginning now will be cooperative and helpful to you as they progress. A general atmosphere of getting along together prevails and will continue to if you just go with the flow.

Sunday, March 31, 2019

Late last evening on the West Coast and early this morning in the East, Mars made its move out of Taurus and into Gemini and changes the energy vibe for all of us.  While in Taurus our forward momentum was slowed down as we were having to be more deliberate in the execution of our plans.  After Mars being in Aries from January into early February, you might have felt stuck or stymied in getting what you wanted.  Well that changes now as Mars in Gemini is quick witted, quick to take action, and changeable.

While Mars is in Gemini we can become interested in many things, and dabble a bit with the new and unique.  We are more versatile and flexible, but also tend to lose focus or get bored easily.  We have to watch out for scattering our energy – this can be especially exacerbated as this is a Universal Year 3 where the natural tendency is to want to expand and explore, yet we can find ourselves scattered.

How do you deal with all this quixotic energy?  Make lists, start your day in meditation, if you feel yourself becoming unfocused or scattered, take a break and move your body, make a commitment to yourself to get what you have to do done before you move onto other things, and finally, be good to yourself if you end up straying – you might just stumble onto something wonderful for use later.

That’s it for the week everyone!  Not too bad, right?  Take care & enjoy …

Have a stellar week,

Janet Hickox, Living Astrology

Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast

February 25 – March 3, 2019

Humming Bird

 

A sort of quiet characterizes this week as most of the planets have already made contacts to one another in the preceding two weeks.  That doesn’t mean that there are not opportunities or challenges this week, but rather we experience the continuation or solution of issues that came up earlier.

The Moon this week moves through Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius highlighting the part of the Zodiac we think of as relationships we have with the outer world.

Don’t forget that we are in the shadow of Mercury retrograde, so don’t be surprised or upset if things seem to take longer to accomplish right now, or if there are reversals and re-do’s in your life.  You can help yourself tremendously if you slow down and take your time doing things.

There are a few big news type events, which I will detail further into this post –

  • Venus moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, while in a square (challenge) with Uranus in Aries.
  • The Sun in Pisces sextiles Mars in Taurus
  • The Sun & Moon square one another in their monthly dance that brings us a “Crisis in Consciousness.”

The Human Design week takes us into interesting territory as well.  The Sun moves into the Gate 37- Harmony, which is about creating positive Family & Community Alchemy, Friendships and Equality.  The Earth at Gate 40- Aloneness, which challenges us as individuals to love our “aloneness” but not to the exclusion of community.  There is so much for us to learn from these two gates that link the Solar Plexus to the Will Center:  force vs. will, equality and balance, work vs. relaxation.  I could do an entire post or workshop just on the ramifications of the evolution going on in these two gates.

Let’s take a look at the day by day this week:

monday (3)

Monday, February 25, 2019

We begin the work week with the Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, meaning it won’t be until later in the day where the energy picks up and we can see results.  Don’t beat yourself up trying to force things to get done, you will just end up frustrated or upset.  Rather, wait until later in the day (after 1:20 pm PT/4:20 pm ET) to complete tasks from earlier in the day. When the Void is over, the Moon will be in Sagittarius and our attitude and outlook get a boost.

tuesday

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

The Moon is in Sagittarius all day today adding a dose of emotional optimism to the day.  This is a good thing, as the contacts the Moon makes today are challenges to both the Sun and Neptune.

Moon square Sun – This is what we call the time in the Moon cycle of “crisis in consciousness.”  In order to move forward with our New Moon intentions, we must deal with the internal dialogue, beliefs, or patterns that are preventing us from moving forward.  Only then will we see a new pattern emerging and establishing itself in our lives.

Moon square Neptune – You may be more sensitive today to other people’s moods, to the environment, and to the sights and sounds of daily life.  You may also be in a more dreamy state of mind, and that makes this a bad day to make big decisions.  Hold on until tomorrow, when the energy shifts to do anything of importance.

wednesday

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

The Moon is still in Sagittarius today, and we’re still feeling buoyed by optimism and a strong faith that everything is going to turn out well.  Added to that, today’s Sun sextile Mars, gives us energy, stamina and a positive attitude to do what is necessary to move forward.

Sun sextile Mars – The Sun is in creative & imaginative Pisces, while the planet Mars is in deliberate, “get-her-done” Taurus.  Together these two planets energetically push us to Manifest & Create and to do it according to a plan of action – yet leaving some wiggle room for creative insights!  We are also more self-assertive under a transit such as this, so there is a small warning to remember to be a team player and not insist on having your own way in all things.  Pisces is mutable (changeable) and Taurus is fixed – so we have to be able to work with both types of energy today.

Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter – The Moon conjunct Jupiter adds to our optimistic attitude today, but can cause us to overdo just about everything.  So take steps to do things in moderation, and proportional to what is possible for you on an energetic level – meaning your personal energy, finances, time, and physical energy and stamina.  

thursday

Thursday, February 28, 2019

While we slept, the Moon moved into serious and business-like Capricorn.  This is a day filled with the potential to get things done, and to be quite task-oriented about it.  Make your lists and check off items as you’re done and by the end of the day you will feel quite accomplished.  The Moon is also sextile the Sun today, so there is smoothness in your relationships and opportunities might arise today from unexpected places.  Be open to receive.

March-LionLamb

Friday, March 1, 2019

Happy March Everyone!  You know they say that if March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb…or at least that’s weather lore about the beginning of this month.  I wonder if things are the same in the astrological landscape because March does come in as a bit of a lion for us this year.

Venus square Uranus Venus, at the end of her transit in Capricorn, finds herself tangled up in a challenging square to Uranus today.  Venus being Venus, things aren’t all bad … more like interesting than challenging really.  When Venus and Uranus come together this way there is experimentation, flirting, and excitement.  Sometimes though, there can be triggers to conflict and fighting.  The trick is to not make mountains out of molehills.  Keep perspective with all your relationships.

Also – since Venus rules money, watch impulse buying!  Make sure that if you are buying something big, that it has real value to you, and that it isn’t just a momentary whim!

Venus ingress Aquarius – I just used a new astrological term for you – Ingress – an ingress is just a fancy way of saying that a planet moved into a new sign.  Venus in this case, moves from Capricorn into Aquarius today and thus changes the interactions in our relationships, how we view our personal worth, and what we value.

While in Capricorn, Venus was wearing her business garb, but in Aquarius she is much more dressed down, funky and much more interested in friendly dynamics.  However, Aquarius can be aloof at times and come across as emotionally detached.  We will want to make sure to be kind, open, honest and transparent with everyone in our lives right now.  If you’re not feeling the emotional connection to someone in the moment, don’t force yourself to be something you’re not.  Instead, value and honor each other for your differences, as that builds the unique tapestry of the world.

Saturday, March 2, 2019 

Today the Moon transitions from Capricorn and into Aquarius midday moving us into more friendly and sociable territory.  For the most part, the energy of the day is good for getting together with friends or family and having fun.  Later in the day, the Moon meets up with Venus in early Aquarius, and here we have another warning about spending money more cautiously – especially if you are on a budget!  Whether it is impulse buying or overindulging, you could be tempted to overdo any number of things – spending money, eating or drinking too much, or even physical exertion. Just keep everything proportional to what is available to you energetically, and you will be fine!

Sunday, March 3, 2019

Moon square MarsToday you want to watch out for emotional irritability and irritation.  While this is not a good day to repress anger or upset, it is not a good day to explode outward at others either.  Instead, engage in positive ways of expressing yourself – exercise, writing in a journal, hiking, or whatever it is that eases that frustration you feel.  You may also be on the receiving end of someone else’s anger or upset today.  Be ready to walk away or count to 10 before you react.  It will save you from creating a huge response to something that was just a fleeting irritation.

That’s it for the Astrology for the week ahead.  I wish you all a stellar week!

Love, Janet

Real Action With a Twist of Imagination

Hopefully everyone moved through the New Moon/Solar Eclipse gateway with plans, ideas and inspiration for what comes next in your lives.  Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and upsets turns direct (forward) today and we now have all the planets in forward motion.  This is the first time in a long while that we have had so many green lights to take action, and we definitely want to use this energy while we have it! 

Weekly Astrology Forecast – Jan. 7-13, 2019

Hopefully everyone moved through the New Moon/Solar Eclipse gateway with plans, ideas and inspiration for what comes next in your lives.  Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and upsets turns direct (forward) today and we now have all the planets in forward motion.  This is the first time in a long while that we have had so many green lights to take action, and we definitely want to use this energy while we have it!  

Even our Human Design astrology is inspiring us to move forward.  The Sun at Gate 54-Ambition and the Earth at Gate 53-Starting Things, makes it more unlikely that we will remain stagnant this week, as to blast off into new territory.  The favored action, however, is based on a plan, deliberation, and taking a one-step-at-a-time approach.  Taking action just for action’s sake will not get you anywhere.  Real action is much more aligned with a great vision or dream, and that is where your twist of imagination comes into play.  

This week we are definitely urged to be real, and late in the week, Neptune (planet of creativity, imagination, delusion spirituality & more) becomes more prominent across the backdrop of planetary movements, and that is where imagination, thinking differently, and writing a new story supports our forward momentum.  

Let’s breakdown the week ahead: 

First, the Moon moves through Aquarius, Pisces and Aries this week.  Our emotional self is about being in a new wave length, being creative and taking bold action.  Sounds good, right?

monday (3)

Monday January 7, 2019:  The Moon in Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries gives us great energy and outlook to move forward with our plan of action.  We may experience frustration if anything gets in our way though, so be patient if things are not working out the way you think they should.  Slow down for just a minute and check to see if you can find a unique solution to any problems that show up.

Venus moves into Sagittarius today where it stays until February 3, 2019.  While in Scorpio romance was passionate and intense.  During her transit in Sagittarius the romantic energy shifts to adventurous and playful.  Besides romance, Venus also rules money and our values.  We may see some temporary good news coming in from the financial markets over the next few weeks, but don’t let that push you into over-optimistically spending or incurring debt.  Remember that this year favors “cautious growth” and good stewardship of our resources.  Stay aligned with your core values.

tuesday 

Tuesday January 8, 2019:  The Moon in Aquarius today is in good relationship to Jupiter in Sagittarius.  There is a perfect match to our inventive, creative sides and our optimistic and growth oriented sides.  Today is a good day to see things differently.  Rise to a higher level in order to change your perspective on things. 

Mercury in Capricorn squares (challenges) Mars in Aries today.  Our minds are sharp and there are few filters between what we think, our mouths and what we want to take action on today.  Try not to get caught up in arguments or disagreements.  Recognize that your own inner conflict may be arising through things that your mind is focused on.  The best way to avoid taking wrong action, is to breathe and then decide on what course of action to take.  This is not a good day to be abrupt, make snap decisions, or allow your anger to get the best of you.  Instead breathe deep, take your time, get outdoors and avoid conflict whenever you can.  

wednesday

Wednesday January 9, 2019:  The Moon is void-of-course from 8:53 am PT to 11:43 am PT.  That means we avoid starting anything new or making big decisions during that time.  The VOC ends with the Moon’s move into Pisces and then we can let our creative ideas flow and let intuition guide our actions.  The Moon and Uranus are in a good relationship today and we might be surprised by some of the inspiring creative ideas that are coming to us.  This might be a good day to try new things, but be prepared for some ups and downs – nothing horrible, just a little bouncy!  

Later in the day the Moon in Pisces squares Venus in Sagittarius.  We may feel pulled in different directions.  The Moon in Pisces more dreamy and cautious, but Venus in Sagittarius is ready to go and boldly adventures forth.  Rather than just jumping into something, wait for things to get a little clearer.  

thursday

Thursday January 10, 2019:  Today may be a mixed bag sort of day.  This morning the Moon in Pisces is in great relationship to Mercury in Capricorn and things seem to be running smoothly.  This is a great time to establish understandings with those around you that can be mutually beneficial and last for the long-haul.  During the afternoon the Moon and Saturn team up and we experience a “cooling” in the the energy of the day.  The best way to deal with the energy of the afternoon is to keep it simple.  The last part of the day and into the evening the Moon conjuncts Neptune and we are back to more pleasant dreams and musings. 

The Weekendthe weekend graphic

Friday January 11, 2019:   The Moon in Pisces turns Void-of-Course at 6:25 am PT until Saturday morning at Midnight.  That makes most of the day today one for batting “clean up.”  This won’t be a good day to start anything new, so clean off your desk, finish things that have been left undone from the week, relax, meditate or take the day off!

The last aspect the Moon makes before going into void is a sextile to the Sun, suggesting that we go with the flow and not resist what is happening around us.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway.

Saturday January 12, 2019:  While you slept, the Moon moved out of Pisces and into Aries fundamentally shifting the emotional energy for the weekend from peaceful, dreaminess to action-oriented “let’s do this!”  The pace of the weekend definitely picks up, and later in the day the Moon will conjunct Mars, the ruler of Aries.  Here is when we want to watch out for confrontation and conflict.  Rash moves, overblown feelings, emotional conflict, and anger can be lurking around the corner, so it is a good day to take it easy and not push, or be pushed, too far. Similarly, don’t let high energy push you in where angels fear to tread — overconfidence can get you into hot water. Count to ten, then go ahead.

Sunday January 13, 2019:  The day begins with the Moon in Aries squaring (challenging) both Mercury and Saturn in Capricorn.  Are you stuck in old patterns of behavior, thinking or being?  If so, make a break through!  Avoid staying stagnant in anything, yet taking deliberate action is much better than just striking out and doing anything just to break the tension.  Later today the Moon will be in a better mood as it aligns with optimistic Jupiter.  Maybe spend some time with friends today doing things you love. 

The Moon will also square the Sun today and we come to the first crisis point since the New Moon Solar Eclipse on January 5, 2019.  This is the Crisis of Action, and we may see that there are stumbling blocks in getting our goals accomplished.  The test is whether you give up on your goals or do you find the path of flow that leads you closer to where you want to be?  Sometimes it takes a few tries before we get where we want to be.  Be willing to adjust your goals, but don’t give up. 

Today we come to the first pass of Jupiter square Neptune.  This transit repeat two more times in 2019 and is one where we must be careful to detoxify our environment.  And by environment I mean your body, your relationships, your thinking, and even your beliefs.  Take care not to get drawn into schemes by less than scrupulous people.  This is a time to really hold to your intuition and not get blinded by things that other people tell you.  Do your own due diligence before doing anything out of the ordinary. 

I wish everyone a blessed week!   ~ Janet Hickox 

  

The Weekly Astrology Forecast – Dec 10-16

Week of December 10-16, 2018

This Week’s Moon:  Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces & Aries

  • Monday:  Moon in Capricorn square Uranus; VOC (void of course moon),  Sun at Gate 26, Earth at Gate 45
  • Tuesday:  Moon in Aquarius square Venus and sextile Jupiter
  • Wednesday: Moon in Aquarius sextile Sun from Aquarius to Sagittarius
  • Thursday: Moon in Aquarius sextile Uranus, square Mercury, trine Venus, square Jupiter, sextile Saturn, Mercury Gate 34, Mars Gate 22 
  • Friday:  Moon in Pisces conj Neptune & Mars, sextile Pluto, Venus into Gate 44
  • Saturday: Moon in Pisces square Sun (Crisis of Action), Moon trine Mercury, New HD Week Sun at 11, Earth at 12
  • Sunday: Moon in Aries trine Jupiter, square Saturn, Venus sextile Saturn, Mars sextile Pluto

This week the Moon moves through Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces & Aries.  The focus this week seems to be on our being true to ourselves and expressing ourselves from that place.  We are also tasked with watching our words and speaking carefully so that we don’t hurt people with carelessly worded texts or emails.  For the most part, we are looking at a good week for socializing and having fun … just don’t over-do anything.  Let’s take a deeper look:  

Monday, 12/10/18 – We begin the work week with the Moon in business oriented Capricorn.  The Moon this morning sets aside emotional concerns in favor straight-forward action. Get out your To-Do list and get to work!  Later in the day, the Moon moves Void of Course, which means that any forward action slows down.  The Void of Course Moon occurs when the Moon makes its last connection to any planet or point before moving into the next sign.  From 1:27 pm Pacific-3:40 pm Pacific, avoid starting anything new.  It is a good time to finish things up, clear off your desk or work area, and end your work day early! 

Who or what are you being influenced by?  That’s the question posed to us by the Sun & Earth in this week’s human design energy.  The Sun at Gate 26 is tasked with integrity, and in this case integrity is not something dictated to you from without – it is you being true to you.  The word Integrity comes from the same root word as integument (your skin).  Integrity then, is being true to yourself or being in your own skin.  The Earth, who is the body that becomes challenged by the Sun, is sitting at Gate 45- the gate of the CEO or Natural Leader.  The major theme for the week seems to be about whether we are being our own “boss” or are we falling prey to what others want us to believe is true about us. Don’t be led astray, and also be careful that you’re not manipulating others to be something that they are not!  

Best Action:  Be TRUE to YOU and allow others to be TRUE to themselves!     

Tuesday, 12-11-18 – The Moon moved into Aquarius yesterday afternoon/evening, and Moon in Aquariusthe atmosphere is now charged with electricity, expectancy and unpredictability!  We have the opportunity to see things differently and with our own unique perspective.  The Moon squares Venus in Scorpio and sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius – it’s time to socialize and party!  If you are attending any holiday parties, expect to have a good time.  However … these two planets when meeting up with the Moon can cause us to overindulge in food and drink.  Discipline is in short supply, so be very conscious about how much you are imbibing!

Best Action:  Have fun, socialize, and be aware of how much food and drink you are partaking in.      

Wednesday, 12-12-18 – Today the Moon is in Aquarius and in a beautiful relationship with the Sun making this a fabulous day to interact with your friends, co-workers and groups you associate with.  You are able to establish good emotional connections with people today.  Opportunities can come up unexpectedly today – especially through friends or people you network with.  The best thing about today is people are generally in a good mood, and that makes this a great day to be out and about in contact with others.  

 Best Action:  Socialize, Communicate, Share, and pay attention to your friends.      

Thursday, 12-13-18 – The Moon transitions into Pisces early in the day today (4:40 am PT/7:40 am ET).  Our intuition is heightened, but we may have a harder time making concrete decisions for the next few days as in Pisces, commitment is hard to come by!  Treat yourself and other kindly and with compassion, as there is a bit of an emotional atmosphere around us.  For most of the day the Moon challenges the planet Mercury and there is a higher possibility of misunderstanding people’s words and meanings.  Monitor your text messages and emails because it is very hard to gauge the emotion in that kind of communication – in other words it is much more likely people will misread the emotion in your written words.  Watch over-reacting to what other people may say or write to you as well. 

Mercury is sitting at Gate 34 in your Human Design chart, and we may tend to “push or force” people with our words…another reason to be careful in your communications today.  Mars is sitting at Gate 22 – usually a setting for charm & grace.  But… and this is a big but…The gate 22 sits on the emotional center and that means we may feel charming or NOT, and if NOT then Mars, planet of action, may cause us to knee-jerk and react in most unbecoming ways. 

Best Action:  BREATHE before saying anything, hitting send on any communication and emotional over-reacting to the words people may be saying.

The Weekend

Friday, 12-14-18 – Today the Moon in Pisces conjuncts both Neptune & Mars and shares nicely with Pluto.  With the Moon conjunct Neptune a dreamy state of affairs marks the surroundings and it may be difficult to pin things down or get anyone else to, either. Fantasy is favored, along with speculation, hopefulness, and prayer/meditation. Anything you try to formalize won’t stay that way, so it’s a better day for imagination than concrete efforts.  

Late in the day, the Moon conjuncts Mars and rash moves, overblown feelings, emotional conflict, and anger can be lurking around the corner, so tonight take it easy and don’t push, or be pushed, too far. You don’t want to start your weekend in anger and confrontation. 

Venus moves into the Gate 44 in your Human Design today.  Gate 44 is on the Spleen and that means it can double as a FEAR gate (False Evidence Appearing Real).  What may trigger us now is a fear that the past is going to repeat itself.  We’re very adept at recognizing patterns now, but just because we see a pattern building doesn’t mean that the past will repeat.  We always have a choice.  Think of the past as baggage, there are useful items there, but use them in a new way.  

Best Action:  Be calm, cool and collected.  Don’t push or be pushed.    

Saturday, 12-15-18   – The Moon is in Pisces today until 4:44 pm PT (I only put the time because of the triple digits 🙂) and is square to the Sun.  That means we are in the first challenge to our intentions since the New Moon last week opened up a portal for new intentions and manifestations.  We call this time the Crisis of Action as we are likely meeting some resistance to our ideas in the outer world.  We may need to adjust our actions to better align with our heart’s desires.  Don’t let blocks or limits bring you down or crush your intentions, instead ask what else you can do. 

As the Moon moves into Aries, events pick up pace for the next couple of days. The early bird definitely gets the worm, so if you’re in competition, get your bid in first. The challenge is to be quick, yet avoid being premature so you don’t have to do it all over again down the line. Nevertheless, it can be a fresh breeze all around, awake with energy.

Today is a good time to express your feelings with conviction, knowing that there will be response in kind. Situations that arise now will have lasting clarity and a quality of self-reinvention as they move along, as head and heart are on the same page and will tend to remain that way.

Today is also the beginning of the new Human Design week, with the Sun moving into Gate 11 and the Earth at Gate 12.  We are tasked with letting our light shine!  Being the lights of the world, and in aligning our voices with what we are illuminating for others we find that alignment with head & heart.

Best Action:  Use your energy positively to express the light of your full-being to the world.  Don’t give up on your intentions or dreams just because a block was thrown in your path – find a way around the block and continue your journey!      

Sunday, 12-16-18 – Today the Moon is in Aries all day – we are filled with energy and need to be careful how we use it!  Venus and Saturn are in a companionable sextile today, and we find that it is the little things in life that can be the most satisfying. Simple desires, simply satisfied, have a way of sustaining life that allows both joy and unhindered progress. Today’s endeavors will share that quality as they develop – simple & satisfying.

The Moon trines Jupiter today so emotional tides are strong and upbeat, and all you have to do is ride them as if you were born to sail. Foundations laid today will be firm and supportive and continue to evolve that way.  Feelings of friendship abound and it’s easy to see the good side of anyone — just remember there may be other sides, too.  With the Moon challenging Saturn today, some people are feeling insecure, so avoid encouraging any negativity you encounter. New directions are not in order, as they won’t go far, so wait just a bit longer to start your engine. 

The planet Mars and Pluto come together today as well.  Being firm but not controlling is the key to getting along for everyone. Stick to your guns but don’t point them at others and all will go smoothly. When expectations are clear, it is easy to achieve harmony and mutual cooperation. The mere assumption that it’s going to work out is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Best Action:  Use your energy wisely, enjoying the simple things in life.  While there is an upbeat feeling to the day, some people may be feeling low, so be a source of positive energy for all you meet.  

Have a great week!
