Astrology Forecast for Creatives - Week of January 26th - dissolving creative boundaries

hannakin
Monday's void Taurus Moon says roll up your sleeves and get your work done early! Then take the rest of the day off! A Taurus Moon loves comfort and ease, so if you need to make some real headway on a project keep your to-do list visible and hold yourself accountable to it.

On Tuesday, Venus joins Mars in dreamy Pisces and our attraction will be to gentler people and places - I'm thinking warm jammies and mac and cheese - we are expecting a blizzard. 

In Pisces our Venus ruled love, money and values drift past all boundaries. The sky truly is the limit! Where is Pisces in your natal chart? Sun sign Pisces will be especially attractive and we will all fall in love with something or someone, maybe for the second time, we are in a "re-do" period!

This is an excellent placement for creative work - just avoid as many escapist distractions, ie the warm jammies and mac and cheese, as possible - and we have this aspect until February 20th. Use it well - just remember the same energy that powers our amazing and imaginative work also powers illusions that we are doing amazing and imaginative work. Ack! Stay grounded. Don't bet the farm.

Venus will square Saturn from Wednesday until Saturday. 

This can bring disappointment - somehow our dream (love, money, our values) is delayed or restricted. 

Remember it's Saturn’s job to clarify and redirect our focus, so we can work with what has real potential for us and so we can get about doing the work we came to do.

There is fate (this doesn't have to be a bad word - it is only our obsession with control and our lack of trust that makes it so) that is predetermined - it serves as the vessel and structure through which our free will destiny is fulfilled and contained. With Saturn, it is safe to assume delays, restrictions and even endings are fated. We work with this best by acknowledging our limits and responsibilities.

Later this week, Mars (action, drive, aggression) conjuncts Chiron (our deep wounding). When these two jam together in uber sensitive Pisces - getting bruised and battered or bruising and battering others is likely. Somebody's going to be crying this week, probably a whole lot of somebodies.

This aspect strokes our wounded masculine - in women this is often wounded assertiveness. This may manifest as an inability to stand up for ourselves or with us confusing assertiveness with aggression and taking things too far. There could be some inability to be direct. Not knowing how to stop doing, running ourselves ragged and being busy, busy, busy are all ways this stuff could show up for us now.

Some keys to working with this aspect will be:

expressing anger and force in healthy ways,
going after what we really want even if it pisses other people off,  
recognizing that we may be attracting people into our life who reflect our own unexpressed rage,
learning how to defend ourselves,
asking ourselves what are we really trying to prove or win

Also, Chiron (king of the centaurs) was shot in the foot so we need to be careful with our feet this week and since the arrow was poisoned - we need to be thinking about what we are ingesting.
 
At the end of the week, our Sun conjuncts Mercury which is retrograde in Aquarius, so whatever Mercury's reversed motion is about for us in terms of the "re's - revising, relooking, reinventing" etc, will get some needed sunlight - it will most likely be something unanticipated. 

I am starting a new series this week about working with our limiting beliefs - watch for it! xo all

So. How did that snowstorm turn out? Can you see out your windows?

the snowpocalypse was a bust here - maybe just a ploy to clear the stores of bread and milk!

So glad to hear the storm wasn't awful your way! ♥

I heard there was a run on Trader Joe's boxed salads. That gave all of us Nebraskans a laugh.

thanks Janelle- wait Lynn, you don't get boxed salad for a snowpocalypse?!

my store ran out of kidney beans - I was thinking snowpocalypse=chili. I guess other people were thinking the same thing. I had to substitute cannellinis ... and they ran out of the damn boxed salad and I had to buy each ingredient myself - it's hard living out here Lynn! xo
