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.
