Sunday, January 29th
The Moon enters Pisces today at 11:10am EST, and comfort can be found in daydream, fantasy, and recession into the self through sleep, meditation, or even unsavory behaviors such as drug use. Internal energy may be lowered, as the Moon in Pisces has very little boundaries, so be on alert for emotional vampires or attacks on your emotions. Mercury and Pluto also meet up later today at 3:21pm EST for the only time in 2017, which is likely to bring up deep issues, particularly related to communication. Combined with the Moon in Pisces, the possibility of lashing out at others (whether in real life or only in your mind) is heightened. Leverage these two energies by being aware of boundaries and how you respond people and situations who try to cross them.
Monday, January 30th
The Moon in Pisces meets up with Neptune in Pisces at 6:17am EST, which some consider the modern ruler of Pisces, so perception is certainly reality today. Remember that Pisces and Neptune like to break down boundaries and cloud our view, so pay close attention to what’s actually real and what just feels real today. It’s likely you’ll feel all the feels today.
Tuesday, January 31st
The Moon in Pisces is confronted by Saturn in Sagittarius today at 7:11am EST, challenging us to determine whether the dreaming of the past few days is actually something worth pursuing. If it is, you better have a plan in place, because winging it is not likely to work in your favor. Luckily, the Moon enters Aries later in the day at 4:46pm EST which motivates us to act, albeit impulsively, on any potential plans.
Wednesday, February 1st
The Moon in Aries is sextile the Sun in Aquarius today at 3:50pm EST, which will want us acting on what we sense should be done and what we know to be a bigger truth. Inspiration for serving a larger cause or the bigger picture flows naturally today.
Thursday, February 2nd
The Moon in Aries squares Mercury in Capricorn at 8:52am EST and then opposes Jupiter in Libra at 9:01am EST, which challenges us to be realistic about what can actually be accomplished, not just for ourselves, but in doing what is right for others as well. Don’t blow things out of proportion if you don’t get your way today or if others don’t agree with your point of view. The Moon moves into Taurus later today at 8:50pm EST bringing us more stability and rationality.
Friday, February 3rd
Venus enters Aries today at 10:51am EST where she is quite uncomfortable. You may feel the need to protect your emotions during this transit, and be aware of how you might criticize yourself. It might not be as serious as it seems. Unfortunately, Venus will go retrograde in March, so she will spend quite a bit of time in Aries over the next few months. While relationships might not pan out, the energy for getting art and self-expression out into the world is ripe for the picking.
Saturday, February 4th
The Moon enters Gemini late today at 11:44pm EST. Enjoy this sociable transit if you plan to go out tonight, but don’t be surprised if you’re tossing and turning tonight with a mind that just won’t quit.

Sunday, January 22
The Moon enters Sagittarius today at 5:45am EST and is at her most optimistic in this Jupiter-ruled sign. The Moon in Sagittarius has us ready to go out and try something new, invest time into learning a new skill, or discussing deep topics. The Moon in this sign can be pulled toward excess, as Jupiter loves to live large, so be aware if you feel a little over the top.
Monday, January 23
The Moon in Sag squares up with Neptune in Pisces at 2:37am EST, and quite frankly has us wanting to cut through the crap to get to the good stuff. While Jupiter rules both Sagittarius and Pisces (traditionally), Neptune can make things a little blurry. Sagittarius wills us to consider what can be learned from situations in which things may not appear as they are.
Tuesday, January 24
Moon in Sagittarius squares Chiron in Pisces today at 1:49am EST might have you confronting something from your past or old way of being. Acknowledge, learn, and move on. The Moon later enters Capricorn at 5:43pm EST, urging you to take charge of this past hurt.
Wednesday, January 25
Venus in Pisces moves over Chiron in Pisces at 1:49am EST and is followed by the Moon in Capricorn joining forces with Mercury in Capricorn at 6:58pm EST. These combined transits are telling us to nurture ourselves from the confrontation of past hurt from yesterday in order for thoughts and feelings to align so that they way forward is clear. This will involve taking responsibility for your thought patterns and dropping those that don’t serve you.
Thursday, January 26
Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 4:22am EST and square Uranus in Aries at 10:18am EST is calling us to take charge of our personal power today and actually DO something. This is a great combo for business and making it happen up until 2:18am EST on the 27th when the Moon goes void of course.
Friday, January 27
Venus in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius today at 12:50pm EST. There may be a challenge to authority and relationships today -- a juxtaposition between acting from the heart and taking care of things from what you know to be true. The Moon entering Aquarius today at 3:37am EST may help discern this dilemma from a bird’s eye view. Think of the big picture when making any decisions today.
Saturday, January 28
Mars enters Aries at 12:39am EST where it works its best and quickest. New projects might be on the forefront, and intense motivation will be available if we recognize it. Interaction and reaction will be on high alert today. Decide how you best want to use your abundance of energy.
Sunday, January 15th
The Moon in organized Virgo is having its heart strings tugged on by an opposition with Neptune in Pisces at 5:08pm EST and then Venus in Pisces at 10:58pm EST. Culmination of energies will be most fruitful during this third quarter Moon when dreams are invited in but evaluated with a discriminating eye. Internal motivation is calling for planning and action with this transit.
Monday, January 16th
The energy that was calling for planning yesterday is now calling for action with Mars in Pisces opposite the Moon in Virgo at 2:02pm EST. There is impulse for acting on instinct yet also following a plan, so utilizing the Neptune/Venus opposition in Pisces from yesterday can help set you up for success. Mars in Pisces is also conjunct Chiron at 9:14pm EST, suggesting that inspiration for action may come from a place of spirituality or forgiveness.
Tuesday, January 17th
The Moon enters Libra today at 6:16am EST and squares up with Mercury in Capricorn at 1:37pm EST. The Moon’s energy is drawing us to connecting with others and maybe even a little bit of people pleasing, while Mercury is focused on getting down to business. Blending the softer aspects of Venus-ruled Libra (think about turning on the charm) with the cold, hard facts of Saturn-ruled Capricorn can help make this square feel less harsh.
Wednesday, January 18th
The Moon in Libra is square Pluto in Capricorn today at 4:23pm EST and then opposite Uranus in Aries later at 10:42pm EST. There is continued energy challenging the Moon today. With Pluto in Capricorn squaring the moon, we’re called upon to change how things are mentally structured in order to climb. This is supported by Uranus in Aries, which is known to act impulsively. These radical generational planets at hard aspects to the Moon are sure to be uncomfortable energies, but see where they push you.
Thursday, January 19th
The Sun moves into Aquarius today at 4:24pm EST and squares up with the fourth quarter Moon in Scorpio at 5:13pm EST, probing us to look back and see what we have experienced and transformed. We might be quite impressed with the ideas we’ve come up with! While the ideas might be there, Mars in Pisces will be square Saturn in Sagittarius, resulting in an erratic energy flow with lots of false starts. Mars wants to go and Saturn wants to draw back, resulting in energy that takes two steps forward and one step back, testing our ability to persevere.
Friday, January 20th
The Moon in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces today at 1:50pm EST, sending out the urge to get to the bottom of things that might seem unclear. Half-hearted explanations will not be accepted today. The urge to explore and act on fantasy may present itself as well.
Saturday, January 21st
The Moon in Scorpio is trine Chiron in Pisces today at 10:15am EST, resulting in heavy energy that will likely have us probing and examining spiritual and emotional patterns and wounds. The Moon connects with Mars in Pisces, also in a trine, later this day at 8:24pm, suggesting that something should be done in order to achieve healing. The Moon will then be void of course until it enters Sagittarius on Sunday the 22nd at 5:45am EST.
Sunday, January 8th
Anyone who was feeling the undertow of Mercury retrograde will breath a sigh of relief in knowing that Mercury goes direct today at 4:43am EST! If you were holding your breath during retrograde or revisiting or reworking areas of your life, you can now begin to relax some and focus on implementing the plans you forged. This transit is supported by the Moon moving into Gemini at 5:06pm today, making mental activity second nature. Good ideas might seem like they are everywhere! Mercury moves into Capricorn later this week on Thursday the 12th at 9:03am, which provides a boost of cardinal energy that encourages initiation, organization, and drive to pull through. Don’t get too loose, though, as Mercury is still in a retrograde shadow as it clears its retrograde path, which will take place on Saturday the 14th. Those who were deeply affected by this retrograde will want to be aware that they may still be susceptible to retrograde energy even after Mercury has turned direct.
Monday, January 9th
The Moon steps into the ring today and sqaures up with Venus, Neptune, and Mars, all in Pisces. Expect heavy emotional fog today and reactions that are based purely on instinct and feeling, possibly to the point of feeling victimized if you allow it. With the Moon in Gemini squaring all of these planets in Pisces throughout the day, your best flow of energy probably lies in rational decision making that surveys and analyzes all the facts. Activate your left brain to make it through today.
Tuesday, January 10th
Moon in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius at 5:32am EST today sets us up for really reeling in all of the ideas we’ve conjured up since the Moon entered Gemini and considering their feasibility for long term implementation. Saturn in Sagittarius wants to cross-check everything that the Moon in Gemini has come up with to make sure that it will stand the test of time. The Moon will also oppose Mercury in Sagittarius today at 4:38pm EST. You may experience challenges to your ideas today--be prepared to make sure they’ll hold up. After opposing Saturn and Mercury in Sag, the Moon is void of course for about 50 minutes before enters Cancer today at 5:49pm where it’s right at home, providing some emotional comfort to relieve the challenging energy oppositions it encountered earlier in the day.
Wednesday, January 11th
Moon in Cancer is trine Venus in Pisces today at 7:51am EST. This lovely energy pattern should bring out the best of you in both the physical and spiritual realms. Aesthetic creativity will come naturally and intuition will be on high alert. Take some time to fluff up your house and home and just enjoy the positivity that comes with this trine.
Thursday, January 12th
Today is LOADED with planetary energy, starting with the full Moon in Cancer at 6:43am EST. The full Moon forms a grand cross in the cardinal signs, resulting in powerful and perhaps uncontrollable energy patterns with Uranus in Aries (unpredictability), Jupiter in Libra (exaggeration), and the Sun in Capricorn (initiation). Normally full moons are a time to survey the results of what you planted during the new moon, but this full moon is still sending out energy waves that encourage us to continue to act in extreme ways, particularly with Uranus being in Aries--a planet and sign that love impulsive action and unpredictably. Venus and Neptune also line up today in a conjunction in Pisces at 4:54pm EST, so the emotional fog keeps rolling in. If you feel like you need to bunker down today, but all means, please do so! All I can say is, good luck!
Friday, January 13th
Friday the 13th, eek! Some minor planetary aspects take place today, but I think it’s safe to say that everyone will still be recovering from the energy of yesterday’s full moon. Cheers to a low-key Friday the 13th.
Saturday, January 14th
The Moon in Virgo forms a trine with Mercury in Capricorn late in the day (10:59 PST for you west coasters and 1:59am EST on the 15th for east coasters), so the focus is on organizing the details and sweating the small stuff! This is what the Moon in Virgo does best, and it’s supported by Mercury in business-loving Capricorn. Gather all your facts and make business contacts today and into tomorrow--you’re bound to look like a superstar who knows their stuff!

Mercury, the messenger and trickster, moves into Sagittarius today at 9:17am EST. Mercury is moving out of Capricorn, where achievements and business matters take place, and back into Sagittarius where communication tends to focus on and analyze the bigger picture, often in a brusque and in-your-face type of way. This is because Sagittarius feels passionate about justice and the wisdom that comes from experience, but Mercury is in detriment in this sign, so even though words may come from a place of truth, they can be cutting and ultimately a liability.
Mercury has been in retrograde (Rx) since December 19, 2016. Its status as retrograde is due to cosmic movement in which Mercury appears to move backward through the constellations from our view on Earth. This is partially due to the fact that Mercury has a much shorter orbit around the Sun (88 days vs. 365 days) and partially due to the Earth’s position at a ~23.5° angle on the ecliptic. Mercury retrograde often calls us to reevaluate how we’re communicating, both to ourselves and with others. Communications during these periods may be slow, misconstrued, or redundant. Technology falters, plans don’t pan out, and lots of times people or things from our past resurface. Mercury retrograde in Capricorn may have had us reaching out to old business contacts or reevaluating where we’re putting our energy with regard to work and career. Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius is now asking us to reconsider our morals and values and challenges us to seek higher thought and full truth before speaking out. There may be an instinct to learn something new or even go back to school at this time. Travel during Mercury retrograde should be carefully planned. Sagittarius is always on the move, but Mercury also rules transit and will want to pull back or retreat while retrograde, which has the potential to create delays.
Since Mercury goes retrograde approximately three times per year, the cosmos give us ample opportunity to reflect, reconsider, and reevaluate. Mercury is a fast moving planet and one that dominates important day-to-day actions like communication, messages, commerce, transit, and jokes, amongst other things. It went retrograde on December 19, 2016 and is scheduled to go direct on Saturday, January 8th at 4:43am EST. Be aware, however, that there is a retrograde shadow that can last approximately two weeks after Mercury goes direct as it completely clears its retrograde path.
Mercury entering Sagittarius will square the Moon in Pisces at 11:17am EST today. This may result in a juxtaposition of seeking comfort through dreams, visualization, and fantasy with having to speak and communicate from a rational and logical standpoint. The moon will be approaching Mercury in retrograde after an exact square, urging us to bring our dreams into concrete thoughts and spoken words, which in turn aids in the co-creation of our lives. Each thought we have has energetic power, but we must bring it into existence. This energy combination is challenging due to the square aspect and requires us to blend the characteristics of opposite elements: fire and water, which may be uncomfortable or even seem unfair at times. Know that this energy pattern exists today so that if it manifests in your life, you can act unbiasedly and from a place of your greatest energetic potential.
The week starts with a lot of Pisces energy from Sunday, January 1st through Tuesday the 3rd. New year’s day brings Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Mars’s fiery nature is dampened a bit by Neptune’s lack of clarity, possibly resulting in low energy and motivation. Pisces energy picks up some on the 2nd with the Moon entering Pisces at 11:47am EST, giving us reason to escape into fantasies and daydreams that we’ve been conjuring. Venus moves into Pisces on the 3rd at 2:47am EST. Venus is exalted here and entertains Pisces’s desire for dreaming and creativity. Connection to others will be high at this time, and intuition, specifically feelings toward and about others, is relatively strong.
Direction changes on Wednesday, January 4th with Mercury entering Sagittarius at 9:17am EST. Mercury is in detriment here, so watch your words and communication! Planets in detriment are strong, but can suffer consequences of their own doing. Mercury in Sagittarius loves to run its mouth, so be conscious that what you’re communicating is for a greater purpose and not idle chatter. Mercury is square the Moon in Pisces, so speaking from the heart might be instinctual but maybe not the best choice--do not let your emotions get the best of your communication!
The Moon meets up with Uranus in Aries at 11:15pm EST on Thursday, January 5th. This aspect is one of great independence and motivation. Motivation may be high, but follow-through is another story. The good news is that the Moon enters Taurus on Friday, January 6th at 3:18pm EST. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, and the erratic energy of the Moon in Aries is now a little calmer and makes you more inclined to stick with what you may have started.
Saturday, January 7th has the Sun meeting up with Pluto in Capricorn at 1:45am EST. All systems are go with this aspect which combines personal power with transformative intensity. You may feel very driven to accomplish something and will not stand for distractions or liabilities, which may result in some harshness or disregard if not managed appropriately. Flashes of brilliance and imagination in new ways may occur. In Capricorn, this conjunction lends itself to business and organization--pay attention to new ideas or opportunities for change that come to you at this time.
