Today's Astrology Forecast | Tuesday, January 28, 2020 - confusion, delusion, the need to rest, maybe a disappointment or maybe the fight dissolves, keep moving forward

The Moon is very active in Pisces today - she hooked up with Neptune at 4:33AM EST, Venus at 6:01AM EST and then sextiles Pluto (5:20PM EST) and finally goes void off a sextile to Saturn at 8:08PM EST. Good for tangible results tonight. Dealing with authority/goals. Creative work. Compassionate work.

Working with Piscean themes or the theme of your natal Pisces house.

Pisces rules our collective 12th house of what is hidden and put away, the ways we self-sabotage because from our vantage point in our 1st house we can't see what's behind us/don't know what we don't know, illusions and delusions, escape, sacrifice, our addictions, our imagination, music, art, lack of boundaries, connection, compassion, charity, hospitals, prisons, the things we do last, the things we have forgotten, our distant pasts, our ancestors, water, sleep, illness, healing, spirituality ....

Mars' square to Neptune becomes exact (with Venus just moving off her conjunction to Neptune and square to Mars - but both still in play).

Mars is our passion, our initiative, our action, our anger. Neptune is our longing to lose our separateness and merge with the greater whole. It's our quest for Eden, the draw to return to the vanished magic of the womb - to God, to the source of life. It's about everything we can feel and nothing we can touch.

Maybe Mars, in the middle of optimistic and 'bigger-is-better' Sag (although tempered quite a bit by Sag ruler Jupiter in Cappy this year) might hit a foggy roadblock with Neptune. Confusion. Maybe dishonesty. Exhaustion. A need for rest. A need for art/music/God.

Some people might feel like the rug has been pulled out from under them this week.

In Sagittarius, disappointment could be something like, "I hoped it would be this way, but it's not". With Neptune, disappointment could be something like, "I hoped this would be real, but it's not".

Neptune dissolves limits and boundaries and Mars in Sag can be impulsive and fast-moving, so we need to stay focused on reality or we might not see we have passed that warning sign that said ROAD OUT. If our faith (Sag) has been misplaced, we could be really far out there by the time we realize we have run out of asphalt. Yes, Mars in Sag is answering to happy-go-lucky Jupiter, but in Capricorn Jupiter is answering to steely and sober Saturn. And the buck stops there. Our house needs to be built on bricks or there will be a hundred opportunities in 2020 for the wolf to blow it down. This square to Neptune is just one of them.

For other people/situations - where our faith has been placed in something real and we are on the right path to begin with - maybe the fight (Mars) dissolves (Neptune). Obstacles can liquefy (I guess spellcheck is with me on this one). We think we are going to have trouble with XYZ and suddenly XYZ isn't even there anymore. Keep in mind with Mercury in Aquarius we are prone to over-thinking and looking too-far-ahead anyway. The obstacles we think we see around the next bend may not even be there by the time we get to them.

With the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Pisces - one plus one might not equal just two. There is innovation and magic here. All the planets are direct and the Moon is waxing.

Keep moving forward.
