Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for January 21

With the New Moon of Aquarius now in effect since yesterday — energizing group projects, team sports, community volunteer efforts, and humanitarian causes — you want to take advantage of two early and positive alignments happening today as the Sun makes an inspirational, 72-degree contact with out-of-the-box thinking Uranus (12:28AM) followed by the Moon making a supportive, 60-degree sextile to Uranus (1:44AM). Since Uranus is considered by most astrologers to rule over Aquarius — although in medieval and ancient astrology Saturn ruled over both Capricorn and Aquarius — you can make a lot of radical changes in the early hours today if you know what you are doing. On the other hand, Mercury does not want to play along with the Sun, Moon, and other celestial bodies currently moving forward in the zodiac. Mercury stops its forward motion at 18 degrees of Aquarius (7:56AM) — beginning a three-week retrograde cycle that lasts until February 11. All Mercury themes — communication, learning and primary education, words and language, transportation and travel plans, business and trade, messages and paperwork, health and medical concerns, the five senses, air and breathing, wind and temperature changes, as well as acts of apparent magic, sleight of hand, and theft — are being accentuated. Don’t fall prey to marketing strategies and sales pitches that aim at hoodwinking you or forcing you to sign an agreement you know is going to end with regret. Adding to the importance of Mercury today is the monthly Moon-Mercury conjunction (8:14AM). Offering you some solace and an uptick in romantic-erotic feelings is the monthly Moon-Venus union (5:46PM). However, this Moon-Venus encounter also starts a void lunar uncertainty cycle that lasts until 4:49AM tomorrow. Count your blessings, meditate for peace of mind, and embrace serene feelings with a hopeful heart — especially as the Moon parallels sometimes illusory Neptune (6:57PM) and provocative Mars (9:32PM).

Sun In Aquarius, Moon In Aquarius

stars-in-the-universe

Sun In Aquarius, Moon In Aquarius

by aliza, Mini Pluto Astrology

 

Think of Aquarius as a breath of fresh AIR.

 
Aquarius is an Air Sign. It is fixed Air so think of the word “fixed” as stable or loyal or use your imaginative forces (to borrow a phrase from Edgar Cayce) to imagine what “fixed” means to you: stubborn? Shall not waver. Shall be truth seeking. No bending!

 
Think of Aquarius as our next shift. Mercury won’t enter the sign yet. Venus has already toured there. But it’s the Sun, truly, that heralds Aquarius Season of course and our New Moon in the sign is this coming Monday (EST).

 
Now Aquarius has two rulers, Saturn and Uranus, one traditional and one “modern,” so it’s not as though we’re done with Capricorn YET (because Saturn rules Cap) so we are getting an energy spill-over and yet, yet… it’s different, it’s turned on its side.

 
To tell you the truth, I find it harsher i.e. when I think of Saturn + Uranus = Aquarius? I feel afraid.

 
Because Uranus is that energy that destroys in the blink of an eye. No. Faster than that. As I’m so fond of saying: Uranus breaks, Saturn builds and here we have both of these energies, truly, in one sign. Isabel Hickey once wrote that Uranus was the only planetary energy we could not control.

 
But maybe, just maybe, we can imitate Uranus in our own lives, in some small way, and see where that leads us, hmm?

 
(And we are indeed under the Pluto-Uranus square at this time too even though it has widened as Pluto has moved forward. It is still with us. These outer planets retrograde routinely so we will get more chances to know this energy better in our own lives.)

 
For the upcoming Aquarius Season though, I don’t want to focus on calamity. I want to focus on fresh air. I want to focus on my own Revolution (Uranus rules revolt).

 
Aquarius rules that which is weird, interesting, original and as I tweeted recently, the other day someone called me strange and I took great offense. What a small mind that person has, I thought to myself.

 
But it was a very Uranian moment because I was shocked. And I learned a great lesson as well. To be even MORE myself — which is truly the lesson of Aquarius.

 
What gets destroyed is what no belongs inside us, outside us. Something inauthentic. It’s like living someone else’s life. Our friends Saturn and Pluto bring change to our lives. It’s Uranus though that brings it with such a crashing.

 
Oh. Wait. I started to focus on the negative again. Wait. Let me reroute that call (Uranus rules telephones).

 
Think (mind = air) of the Sun in Aquarius (tomorrow) and the New Moon in Aquarius (Monday) as the New You and be unafraid of the Shock of the New You. Maybe you will look in the mirror and not recognize the being you are becoming. If so, you are right on time.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, January 9th

Yesterday’s closing warning might have been somewhat over-the-top. Nevertheless, you want to be crystal clear in your communications and be on alert across the board as the Moon in Virgo forms its monthly opposition with sometimes obfuscating Neptune (2:21AM) while the main cosmic stinker of the day clocks in at 4:24AM when Mars makes a formidable 45-degree link with Uranus. The problem with this mathematical interaction between the red and revolutionary planets is that Mars is now energizing 28 degrees of Aquarius which is the precise current midpoint in the zodiac between Pluto at 14 degrees of Capricorn and Uranus at 13 degrees of Aries. Therefore, these three planetary orbs are locking horns, so to speak, and circumstances beyond human control are temporarily in the catbird seat. Explosive vibrations are increasing in frequency within the psychic atmosphere and no one is immune from the possible adversarial fallout. Projecting anger on to well-meaning loved ones and friends is out-of-bounds. Play the role of Good Samaritan whenever you can. The Moon frolicking in small-is-beautiful Virgo can keep you on your toes. Reading, scholarly research, weeding the garden, and repairing clothing or equipment are fundamental. Making matters potentially more alarming is that the martial other shoe will fall tomorrow when Mars, still activating the volatile Uranus-Pluto midpoint in the sky, teams up with secret-keeper Pluto via another frictional, 45-degree alignment.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, January 5th

As the first Monday of the new year, this date is not exactly a humdinger. What puts January 5 into a low-rated position is that last night’s void Moon cycle in Cancer continues for this entire 24-hour time-period — until it finishes up at 3:04AM tomorrow when fiery, heart-centered Leo Moon begins in earnest. Despite the question marks that may be popping up all over the place with today’s Cancer Moon on hiatus, Mercury — having just entered the universal air sign of Aquarius yesterday — is connecting favorably with Uranus (3:28AM via an inspirational, 72-degree link) and Saturn (2:22PM via a constructive, 60-degree tie). While Mercury associating with Uranus opens up the genius side of your thought power, the Mercury-Saturn alliance can give you a steadier presence in a variety of business matters. Keep your primary partnerships upbeat and pleasant as the Sun forms an off-kilter, 150-degree contact with Juno (4:19PM). Cooking, baking, reinforcing family bonds, and strolls alongside a favorite waterway can soothe your soul. With Sunday’s Full Moon now in the record books, it is advisable to keep sending out to the needy the positively charged divine vibrations received during heightened meditation experiences. Be happy you can reach out to the distressed and disenfranchised as a goodwill ambassador. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, December 24th

While people around the world settle in to celebrate Christmas Eve, the planets conjure up a bit of excitement on their own. Conversations take unexpected turns and the day is full of surprises as communicator Mercury squares shocking Uranus. We may choose radical honesty now over diplomacy. Meanwhile, Mercury’s looming hookup with potent Pluto sharpens our perceptions while the detached Aquarius Moon helps us maintain a healthy perspective.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your ability to get things done quickly tempts you to take on more responsibilities than you can possibly finish. However, your holiday spirit may run into trouble if you overextend your reach today. Instead of thinking that you need to convert every intellectual breakthrough into tangible results, just allow your brilliant ideas to come and go like the tides. Visualize yourself standing on the shores of awareness, but remember that you don’t have to capture every individual wave to make your mark.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You’re waiting for something big to happen, yet whatever it is remains just out of reach. You may attempt to calm your nerves, but your restlessness lingers until you accept that the resistance comes from your own attitude. Fortunately, the tension disperses when you begin to let go of control. Don’t waste energy concentrating on too many specific details of the day; spend time focusing on your long-term goals instead. Ironically, aiming your attention at a point on the distant horizon has a positive impact on the present moment.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Following through on anything that you start now may be a challenge, but you won’t likely be bothered about it for too long. You suddenly forget about what you were doing as soon as you are distracted by another amazing idea. Your erratic behavior might be upsetting to others today, yet you’ll probably continue scattering your energy until you see the error of your ways. Ultimately, obtaining closure on unfinished business improves your reputation and raises your confidence in the process.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Although you wish relationship dynamics were simpler, it feels as if you built your day on shifting sands. Thankfully, you might be able to change the energy faster than you thought possible by just telling the truth today. Don’t hold back; even if your life is turned upside down for a while, it will settle back on the solid foundation that you need. Have the courage to throw caution to the wind when it comes to following your heart.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You think that you know what you want today, but the current circumstances keep changing. Just as you become comfortable with one perspective, everything shifts and you need to readjust your expectations. Your willingness to be flexible could prevent a serious headache. However, too much thinking now can get in the way of your best interests. Observe the current interpersonal dynamics and respond with your heart, not your head.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Assimilating so much information may be a bit overwhelming now, especially if you believe you already have the answers to lingering questions. Your key planet Mercury is buzzing today, yet the more stuck you are in your thinking, the louder the static is from electrical Uranus. Thankfully, your readiness for change empowers you to explore the outer limits of your imagination. Remember that you don’t have to push your thought process over the edge; your evolving perspective is all you need to get the most out of your journey.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your mind is currently operating at an incredibly high speed, yet you wonder if you’re capable of keeping it up throughout the entire day. You naturally assume that the flow of information will eventually slow down, but other people continue to introduce more complications. The hectic pace is fun at first, but might become more exhausting as the day goes on. Don’t try to do everything all at once. Extending your thinking into the future can help you remain calmer in the present.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are possessed with self-confidence today, especially if someone you trust expresses approval of your performance. Although unpredictable Uranus can set off a strike of lighting that rattles your current routine, cosmic assistance seems to arrive just in the nick of time. As long as you’re willing to shift gears quickly, you should be able to make good use of the new information that arrives at your door now. Letting go of old assumptions clears the way for an exciting new direction.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’re able to accomplish so much today that others might start to think you’re a super-hero. However, there’s a steep price to pay for your action-packed day. So many events are interrelated now that one unexpected blip can bring down the entire house of cards. But even a crisis or two won’t stop you if you’re open to starting over again and changing your course as needed. Your sheer determination is a marvel to behold.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may hope that everything will calm down, but you probably won’t have a chance to catch your breath for a couple of days. You are called back into action today and you must show up ready to hold up your end of the deal. Fortunately, mental Mercury’s current stay in your ambitious sign indicates that you’re up for the task. You don’t have time to waste; face the current challenges with a fierce resolve and a can-do attitude. Climbing mountains is what you Mountain Goats do best.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although your thoughts are integrally tied to your future, today’s planetary cluster in your 12th House of Escapism triggers your desire to fly under the radar with minimum impact. Nevertheless, you have no choice but to let go of your isolationist tendencies since electric Uranus zaps you out of your secret fantasy world. Overcome your fears and face the brave new world that’s right around the next corner. You might not be able to see what’s coming, but if you’re willing to take a calculated risk the rewards will follow.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You don’t have to convince others that your plan is the best one; you only need to communicate your ideas with honesty and integrity. There are no correct or incorrect points of view now, just differing ones. Even if your opinions are out of the box, others respect you for describing exactly where you stand. Nevertheless, you must demonstrate your sincerity by listening to other people’s positions. Keeping an open mind is the key to making the best choices for everyone involved.

Uranus Direct

Uranus Direct

Change erupts as the rebel planet moves forward

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of uranus, insight, astrology

 

Revolutionary Uranus has been forcing an uncomfortable calm since it went retrograde on July 21, 2014, keeping us from making the important changes we felt brewing beneath the surface.

But now, when Uranus goes direct on December 21, 2014, all of those urges we’ve been suppressing for the past five months will erupt on a personal and global scale.

Uranus is the planet of shocks and surprises, but it was inhibited while in retrograde. It’s been a period of relative quiet, but now we may experience both brilliant and disturbing ideas and events — especially as Uranus moves through fiery Aries.

Uranus in Aries represents sudden and unexpected events, including wild weather and political uprisings — all of which we’ve seen hit every part of the globe recently.

So if you think the past five months have been chaotic, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. Get ready and brace yourself for more of the unexpected now that Uranus is moving direct again.

This is all part of the transformational times we’re living in, and as frightening as it may be, such change is needed to redirect humanity toward a better future. Here we go!

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Yule, December 21st

If you made it through yesterday’s cosmic slugfest relatively unscathed, give yourself a row of virtual gold stars. Now you have another 24 hours to conquer with a very deft touch since the universe is going all in right now with a mega-dose of celestial madness. First of all, keep in mind that several of Saturday’s difficult sky configurations are still on the astro-psychic radar screen — only more undercover. Now Venus forming a supportive, 60-degree link with healing maestro Chiron (2:04AM) followed 2+ hours later by the Moon in Sagittarius forming a harmonious trine to buoyant and optimistic Jupiter in Leo (4:36AM) makes it seem that all is well, but this 120-degree contact also begins a long void lunar uncertainty cycle that lasts until 5:26PM (when the Moon enters Capricorn). Ceres gets into the act, too, by converging with the Moon (5:00AM) — adding another note of supposed calm and productivity. Then a few hours later, the testing of humanity begins in earnest as Mercury forms a potentially abrasive, 135-degree tie with Jupiter (11:03AM), Uranus halts its recent retrograde motion at 13 degrees of Aries (2:46PM) to begin a forward-moving cycle that lasts until July 26, 2015, the Sun switch its allegiance from fiery Sagittarius to earthy Capricorn (3:04PM), and the New Moon materializes 2+ hours after that (5:37PM and energizing 1 degree of Capricorn). A station of Uranus — the key planet of shocks, surprises, anarchy, rebellion, revolution, genius, intuition, high-technology, jokers, wild cards, out-of-the-box thinking and behavior, the multi-media, the nervous system, anxiety, breakthroughs in consciousness or breakdowns — is not exactly compatible with the Sun and Moon striding forcefully into Capricorn (the key sign of the zodiac ruled over by Saturn). Therefore, this sacred turning point of the year — the solstice, when the Sun appears to stand still in its vertical arc — is receiving an unusually high injection of adversarial energies (represented by play-by-the-rules Saturn and always-unpredictable Uranus). Do your best to pursue your objectives today with self-confidence and a calm demeanor. Like the Little Engine That Could, keep affirming the mantra of I think I can.
