Wednesday, January 26, 2022 | Today's Astrology Forecast - paying attention to what catches our attention, not shooting ourselves in the foot


The Moon is in intense Scorpio now. We are nourished by power/collective resources/merging/purging/diving deep. Our emotions might be more intense, situations can feel more "life and death". 


She squares Saturn at 12:41AM EST (tension/frustration maybe around authority/rules/limits), trines Neptune at 11:47AM EST (great for our intuition, making art/music, prayer, meditation) and sextiles Pluto at 9:09PM EST (passion, transformation, change, power). She will go void off a sextile to a retrograde Mercury at 12:27AM on Thursday morning. She will be void until 9:44AM EST tomorrow, when she moves into fiery Sagittarius.

This is the day Mercury (retrograde in Capricorn now) perfects his smooth trine to the North Node in Taurus. We are looking backward to move forward now. 

We talked about this aspect in the WEEKLY:

Mercury (retrograde), at 29 degrees Cappy trines the North Node at 29 degrees Taurus. It's no coincidence we have THREE planets in Cappy as the North Node has shifted into Taurus and we get these smooth energetic connections with HOW WE ARE GOING TO GET WHERE WE'RE GOING/fate/the future. Good news can come in. Arrows lit up that point us OVER THERE. The right book can fall off the shelf. The right conversation can happen. A seriously good idea come in. Send the email/take the call. Say it/think about it AGAIN.


Keep in mind with Mercury retrograde this will not be a totally new thing. But with the North Node in Taurus now, we are connecting different dots! Also keep in mind with the North Node in Taurus, this will not be some big, complicated thing.

This is also the day Black Moon Lilith, still in Gemini and answering to Mercury - so this can be all part of the North Node trine - squares illusive Neptune at 21 degrees Pisces.

Maybe old words, information, conversations can come back to haunt us/deceive us. BML is rebellious feminine energy and, quite frankly, pissed off for thousands of years. In Gemini, she pulls in choices/options/information, but this square to Neptune looks self-sabotaging. Be careful with what you are saying/thinking/believing. 


Double check the details. Don't gossip/scapegoat. With the Moon in Scorpio trining Neptune, Neptune's square with Lilith might speak of sabotaging "connection" because we are afraid to be controlled or to read what we want, that isn't actually there, into situations - so stay frosty. Avoid addictive substances and unhealthy escape mechanisms/mergers.

The BML/Neptune 'heads up' is also a good reminder to keep in mind that Mercury is RETROGRADE. Yes, she/he (as we) is trining - BRAKES OFF - the North Node (how we are going to get where we're going), but this is still a re-flective energy. 


We are re-viewing, re-thinking, re-vising, re-visiting. In Cappy, this could be about old goals, father issues, security issues, career, the way we show up in the world. 


There is no need to rush this stuff. What is truly ours will be there for us when we are ready.
