Today's Astrology Forecast | Wednesday, january 6, 2021 - a battle for balance/fairness/justice, taking action that gives some kind of safety and stability back to us in return


The Moon is in Libra now - we are nurtured through our relationships, through balance, through beauty. She squares the Sun at 16 degrees Capricorn at 4:37AM EST which will color the day until her square to Pluto (uncomfortable power plays) at 6:23PM EST.

The square to the Sun is the Moon's monthly Last Quarter Square. This month - Libra/Capricorn. 


Balance/fairness vs one-sided power/authority. Cooperation vs 'my way or the highway'. Beauty vs starkness. Also pushing our problems into a closet/pouring pink paint over them vs getting real and dealing with them. This Moon is the waning of the promise of that Sag Full Moon Eclipse as we move toward next week's powerful New Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto - at 23 degrees, so past that devastated 22 degrees of last year. It's a whole new world by next week.


For today, we are adjusting. Who has the power now and how is this shifting/needing to shift? 


It is not often (or maybe ever) from evil intent that power gets cemented - that power/hierarchies/families hold their shapes for too long for their own good. Really how long can anything maintain its structure/theme/pattern and survive without dying out or falling apart or rotting away? There comes a point where our struggle to maintain is the very thing that hastens the demise of something. The necessity for cleansing/change is preceded by an over-concentration of energy in one area and then we (individually and collectively) become kind of possessed of that energy for awhile. Kind of the way a child is born into a family playing a certain role to release the clan from their overabundance of whatever it is that has grown old and moldy. Interesting to see what happens in U.S. politics today - shifts that bring more fairness/justice/civility - maybe?

And from the monthly -

"Mars has FINALLY finished up our 6 month journey through his home sign of Aries and moves into Taurus today. He loves Aries/is strong in Aries, his home sign, but he (as we) might be a little burnt out from all the passion/fire. We are probably ready to get down to solid work/hands in the dirt/plant the seeds.  


Mars wants to build something now, so let's give him (as us) something to build. New ways to make money, improve our resources, take physical action with things we can see/taste/touch. We want to take action that gives some kind of security/safety back to us in return. 


Keep in mind Taurus is the space in our natal chart that naturally encloses what we are here to nurture, preserve and grow. It may be a space we have a bit less passion and ambition because we most naturally feel the need to sustain what takes root here. A bird in the hand thing usually applies to the theme of whatever space Taurus occupies in our natal chart. The energy is cautious because the thing we are holding/carrying here is precious. It can also become the fear-based space where good things go to die - and then we carry around a bunch of dead stuff like a crate of rotted vegetables and wonder why we are so tired all the time (and smell like moldy cabbage).


Mars is forced to slow down when he gets into Taurus. This is fixed earth.


That stop and smell the roses thing applies here and it will this time, too, but after all these months in Aries and with Mars on a collision course with anything-can-happen Uranus in just a few days - we are just as likely to feel an increased build up to THAT. 


A kind of - change is coming. Here it comes. OMG. Electricity in the air.

xo all - lost my internet yesterday, so will try to finish up that vac series tonight, very interesting connections between the UK and USA (not unexpected) and crazy connections with dwarf planet Sedna
