Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of January 8th, Part I - another HUGE week, integrating our will into the collective, shining a light on who/what we love, OPPORTUNITIES, an accounting, the TRUTH comes out, consequences for what we do and what we want, good outcomes, talk like a grown-up

untitled by oprisco

This week is another big week and I ran out of time tonight to finish this post. I will get the rest of the week up by tomorrow or Tuesday!

On MONDAY, the Moon is in social, balanced and cooperative Libra.

We have Mars sextiling Pluto (the first of three Mars/Pluto sextiles) and both the Sun and Venus sextiling Jupiter (in Scorpio so answering to Pluto). Confidence, charisma, attraction, high energy - it's all here. As well as consequences (Pluto) for what we do (Mars) and what we want (Venus).

Note Monday is the final day before the Moon reaches her last quarter and starts to wane (release) - if you have something that needs seeding/starting that is BRAND NEW and you want to get it started before the January 16th New Moon - try your best to JUMP ON IT today.

If that is not possible, just avoid the Void Moon periods (the Moon is void Tuesday from 11:13AM EST to 3:05PM EST and pretty much all day Thursday) - everything this week has good closing aspects so most things started now should have a good outcome. Of course, I can't see your personal chart, but in general this will be true.

Multiple sextiles create multiple opportunities or maybe all of this is playing out for us in one really big way. Keep an eye/ear out for opportunities now and pray/meditate and ask that you are able to recognize the opportunities when they present themselves to you!

The Sun sextiling Jupiter brings luck and expansion (it could also make us and other people very full of ourselves and over-do it). We'll want to shine in a big, public way.

Venus (love, money, self-esteem, values, resources, women, beauty) is sextiling Jupiter (expansion, luck, more is more) - this is probably the best aspect we could have. Lucky in love. Lucky with money. More love. More money. I know someone born with this incredibly lucky natal aspect who depleted it (over time) by always wearing too much (Jupiter) jewelry (Venus). When she stopped over-doing it with the daily accessories (as per my recommendation which was part fashion advice/part astro intuition) - she started making more money.

(as a temporary measure though this kind of thing could work to stir up the energies we want to encourage - warning shameless plug ahead - have you seen my lockets - blog readers get a 25% discount with coupon code OLIVEREADER).

This is opportunity between our Capricorn and Scorpio houses - what houses are ruled by these signs in your natal chart?! Do something with those themes. 

Collectively we are talking about - Capricorn (business, career, authority, responsibility, father, goals) and Scorpio (other people's money/resources, loans, debts, inheritance, investment, sex, divorce, reproduction and all kinds of third party situations). So this is a good time for goal setting (get this energy into the DNA of your goal!), working with authority figures, stepping into our own authority, dealing with all those Scorpio money issues and dark secrets, working with women, love, finances.

With Mars sextiling Pluto - we should have more courage and passion for what needs doing, just be sure, for best results, to be kind of marrying what you want to do with what you should be doing. There is a whole lot of energy in 'by-the-book' Capricorn, too.

There could be a kind of almost instant-karma with our Plutonian actions this week, so if you use these energies in any clandestine or secret way then maybe even as soon as Mercury gets into new territory in Capricorn at the end of the week, the cat could be out of the bag! Don't flirt with your bestie's boyfriend and don't fudge any financial numbers/paperwork now.

We had Mars trine (brakes off) Pluto during the Las Vegas shooting and now with Mars sextile Pluto there is always the chance of some kind of violence within the collective. An opportunity for mass violence/war. Sadly, we have to keep stuff like this in mind, too.

On TUESDAY, Venus meets up with the Sun at 18-19 degrees Capricorn - this is called her superior conjunction and in the continuous Venus/Sun cycle this meet-up is a culmination. Venus becomes an evening star. Something seeded near March 25, 2017 (4 degrees Aries back then and Venus was retrograde) is reaching a peak/turning point or finishing up now. With the cycle starting in Aries and culminating in Capricorn - we have taken something from its infancy/beginning to its maturity.

What we get now - something or nothing - is what we have earned.  

We continue to work with this Venusian energy (it's kind of like a waning Moon now - releasing what isn't working, releasing to create space for something else during the next cycle) for the next nine months. 

When I used to track my Venus cycles I found the superior conjunction to be a time of sacrifice -  I had to let something go or give up something to continue with whatever I had started nine months before. Kind of like when you have a baby and have to give up eating and sleeping and taking a shower. The baby far outweighs having clean hair, of course, but some days you really miss clean hair!

So, in the past, for me, even when the culmination brought some kind of achievement - Venus rules love, money, values, resources and self-esteem - there was always a little something bittersweet about what I had lost to get what I got. A better example (I feel kind of bad comparing a baby to clean hair) could be maybe you get a promotion and start making more money, but the promotion requires longer hours or travel and now you have less time at home - that kind of thing.

With Venus as an evening star there is added maturity (for the next 9 months) in our dealings with Venusian matters.

Venus also sextiles Mars now - this is the masculine and feminine energy working together. What we want and what we have to do to get what we want - maybe this merges into us getting what we want. And the Sun sextiles Mars Tuesday night - when have you ever seen me write the word sextile (opportunity) so many times! Maybe never, evah! Great energy Tuesday night for taking action that brings us into the spotlight, good energy to be with other people and to bring our best selves to the occasion - could be hard to fall asleep though!

Right after Venus hooks up with the Sun, both Venus and the Sun conjunct Pluto!!

So we have Venus, the Sun and Pluto - all lined up like good little soldiers - this is a very rare stellium. Babies born today will move mountains.

In the collective news all this Capricorn/Pluto could look like chaos.

Mercury is moving into Capricorn at the end of the week, so we might have to wait for whatever news is going to break to happen then. Or for things to start to make sense. Or for the truth to come out. This could be more #metoo ground shaking or something else related to power dynamics within big business, government, etc.

Let's take a look at Venus and the Sun conjunct Pluto by sign. This energy will be in play for a few days. If you know your rising/correct house for Capricorn check that first, then check your Sun sign:

ARIES (Aries Rising/Capricorn 10th house) - the superior conjunction of Venus and the Sun throws a spotlight on your 10th house of career/public life and suggests positive developments. Something seeded around late March 2017 is culminating, peaking or reaching a turning point. This is excellent energy for increased money/resources and public respect/acclaim for your work/whatever you do in public. Rewards come with responsibility. Pluto's involvement tells us whatever is happening has the power to be transformative - things have a before/after quality. Results are karmic (consequence of prior thoughts/actions) and potentially lasting. The opportunistic sextile with Mars in your 8th house increases your chances of financial success through other people's money/resources and opportunities for improved intimacy and through being intimate or sharing intimacies with other people.

TAURUS (Taurus Rising/Capricorn 9th house) - the superior conjunction of Venus and the Sun throws a spotlight on your 9th house of higher education, travel, foreign issues, legal issues, weddings or publishing and suggests positive developments. Something seeded around late March 2017 is culminating, peaking or reaching a turning point. Pluto's involvement tells us whatever is happening has the power to be transformative - things have a before/after quality.

GEMINI (Gemini Rising/Capricorn 8th house) - the superior conjunction of Venus and the Sun throws a spotlight on your 8th house of other people's money/resources, taxes, loans, inheritances, partner's income, sex, reproduction, intimacy.

Pluto's involvement tells us whatever is happening has the power to be transformative - things have a before/after quality. Results are karmic (consequence of prior thoughts/actions) and potentially lasting. Some kind of sacrifice could be required as you make a larger commitment to diving into whatever is buried here in your 8th house. Greater intimacy is possible. Greater financial security is possible. It is also possible you are dealing with the opposite manifestation. The good news is, if problems seem to be mounting now - the opportunistic sextile with Mars in your 6th house of day-to-day activities and work/health tells us you have the tools right in front of you to turn this thing around over the next 9 months. Dot your i's cross, your t's, get organized - get to work.

Whether a partner is involved with whatever is happening or the relationship is where the action is - a point where things cannot go any further without either moving toward a deeper, more committed level or rupturing is here.

On WEDNESDAY, Mercury ingresses into Capricorn and joins the Capricorn party. Our words get serious. The news gets serious. We now have 5 planets in steady-as-she-goes Capricorn. Crass language can sink our ship. Bring your A game to any conversation/communication/meeting. Use commonsense. The Moon is in Scorpio and sextiles Saturn - we get emotional satisfaction through work and responsibility today. The Sun and Mars are conjunct so our actions are more visible. Good for energetic moves and initiative, but also a good time to have an accident or toss a temper tantrum. Better to do some physical work or work up a sweat.

I will write a post about Mercury and the rest of the week either tomorrow night or Tuesday.

xo all
