Weekly Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of January 25 - January 31, 2021 - a powerful time, turning toward the facts, needing variety, prioritizing health, work and service, fiery drama, obsessions, do you feel lucky?



MONDAY - Sun sextile Chiron, Venus trine Vesta

TUESDAY - Sun square Uranus, Neptune square North Node

THURSDAY - Full Moon in Leo, Venus conjunct Pluto, Sun conjunct Jupiter

SATURDAY - Mercury stations retrograde

Let's jump right into it!

MONDAY - the Sun (at 5 degrees Aquarius) sextiles Chiron at 5 degrees Aries - an opportunity for healing. Planets are sextile when they are separated by 60 degrees. The signs progress like a spiral from male to female to male to female. So signs that are 60 degrees apart are the same ying or yang, male or female. In this case, Aqua/Aries are both masculine/yang. So we know the opportunity is active (as opposed to responsive ie feminine/ying opportunities). This is the energy of the group working well with the energy of the individual.


Keep in mind we have to take some action/do something to access this.

Changes that "re-invent who we are", particularly in a public way, can be HEALING. Stepping back from a situation to give it more space/distance or dealing with it on a more intellectual level - and realizing we are not alone in this, can be HEALING.


(this is one of the final aspects from that Cappy New Moon we talked about HERE. So, we have completed the mini-journey our last Mew Moon spoke of - from Capricorn to Aquarius - if we have walked these steps, and we have, there is an opportunity to heal a very old/deep familial wounding around our ability to take care of ourselves/our ability to be ourselves, maybe within group situations)

Venus (21 degrees Capricorn) trines Vesta at 21 degrees Virgo. Vesta is the missing leg in this week's Mutable T-Square Full Moon and Venus will be back here at the end of the year retrograding over exactly this point, so pay attention - there is a kind of 'head's up' now. A focus on the specific/the practical. on service, on work/health/our daily life and obligations, on organization enables Venus to work her magic. This is near-enough the RED HOT 22/23 degrees to give this extra oomph. The trine is the most positive aspect in astrology and Venus our most beneficial planet. This is Cappy/Virgo - practical success that feels good.

Also note, Mercury will be retrograde in just five days, back up those files, phone pics.


TUESDAY - this is a BIG day. We have the Sun in Aquarius (6 degrees) squaring Aqua-co-ruler Uranus in Taurus at the same time we have Neptune in Pisces (19 degrees) squaring the Nodes - this second aspect has been in play for awhile, but here is where it is most exact.

The Sun is in his detriment in Aquarius (since he rules Aqua's polarity sign of Leo) and now he squares Aqua's co-ruler Uranus. Uranus is unpredictable and will not be fenced in. Changes occur suddenly (although not always totally without warning). Routine is upended. 

Today's energy says the present is the finish of the past. It says the inventiveness we need may actually be available to us.
It says if we are stuck, Uranus can attract people/things/situations that allow/force us to break out of stuck constructs. Come unstuck. Or require us to see/act on things in a new way.   
With Neptune squaring the Nodes at the same time, this is double the energy to release the illusion/the delusion, the payoff we are getting from whatever positionality (is this a word? I guess not) we are stuck in. The satisfaction we get from our current position - is always what is keeping us stuck. And does our current position still make sense/cents - always a question with Uranus in Taurus.
There is no changing the past or controlling the future. This is volatile energy that can bring surprises.


Uranus will always seek to overturn anything traditional or conventional that has outlived its usefulness. So, we have the Sun, moving through Aquarius, not so happy/strong and he moves into this tension/frustration with the planet he is not happy to be answering to in the first place. 


At the same time Neptune, strong in his home sign of Pisces, is squaring the South Node in Sagittarius and the North Node in Gemini. Mutable T-square. Neptune square the Nodes is a time of confusion, but also a time when the time to be confused is in the past. It has to be. Goodnight Irene. Something draining must be drained. So, time to choose/pivot. We want to be focused on facts/what is close by, not on beliefs/potential/what is foreign.


The empty leg of the T-Square is Vesta at 19 degrees Virgo. 

Vesta has been in Virgo since October 22, 2020. She will be here until July. This is a very long transit. I guess we need her here while Neptune battles it out with the Nodes of Fate, to get our collective sh*t together. Vesta says prioritize. Prioritize. In Virgo, she says, prioritize what is practical/useful/needed/what works. Prioritize the stuff you can touch/taste/hold. She says what you hold sacred is what you give your time and attention to. Always.


Virgo is about our daily activities, the way we make use of our time, our work, our service to others, our health, the way we organize ourselves, our paperwork, the ways we handle details, keep things clean. Vesta in Virgo is pure/untouched/unadulturated feminine energy.


The empty leg of a T-Square is the anchor - how we balance this energy. Vesta, at 21 degrees Virgo, is the empty leg now. It's not a coincidence she ends up right where she is at just the time we need an anchor.


So, through the lens of Virgo we lean away from the past and into the future. We pivot. We make our next move.

(the space of Vesta in our natal chart shows what we need to keep our inner flame lit. She can also be an indicator of what we need to do to keep that inner flame from going out, and, on the other hand, where we might unconsciously tend the flame of others, while our own flame dwindles ..)

THURSDAY - this is the day of the Full Moon in Leo. At the same time we have Venus meeting Pluto and the Sun meeting Jupiter. Wow. THIS LOOKS AS BIG AS ANYTHING ELSE WE HAVE SEEN this month and we've seen alot, haven't we?  


Drama, our heart, our spotlight, obsession, intensity, power, life and death, luck, the future. It's like a Broadway extravaganza on opening night - it's all there.

Expect a BIG post. I can't wait to unpack the chart!


SATURDAY - Mercury stations retrograde at 26 degrees Aquarius. He/she will station direct on February 20, 2020 at 11 degrees Aquarius - this is the day of that CRAY-CRAY seven planet stellium in Aqua. Booster rockets into the future, so the retro gives us some time to take care of the things we need to, so we can best line up with this timeline. We take off in a very BIG way. So, this retrograde is equally HUGE.

Collectively, Mercury's retrograde through Aquarius will bring up re-dos, re-visions, re-thinking around our friendships, the internet, our tech, science, the goals that bring us into connection with other people. Old friends can come back into our lives. We'll talk about this in its own post.

Expect a BIG post about this, too. 


In the meantime, back up your files/phone pics, etc. 


Back with some dailies!

xo all
