Daily Cosmic Calendar for January 1st

First off the bat as the New Year begins is the monthly New Moon (activating 11 degrees of Capricorn at 3:15AM). Any new alignment of the solar and lunar orbs can generate a dynamic, forward momentum across the board. Then, in fairly rapid succession, the Moon is conjunct mysterious-secretive Pluto (3:45AM), Venus makes an inspirational, 72-degree link to radical-change agent Uranus (4:29AM), the Moon unites with communication-boosting Mercury (6:33AM) and parallels Venus (7:03AM) — all leading up to our main course, the first Sun-Pluto rendezvous on a New Year’s day in 247 years at 10:58AM.  Hit the psychology, metaphysical and self-help books with a vengeance. Learn more about reincarnation, fears and phobias, and how to eliminate them in order to dissipate many of the hidden, root causes of human suffering.  As a dessert, try to savor the mentally-expansive, monthly Moon-Jupiter polarity (11:10AM) and a problem-solving enhancement arriving at 3:16PM when Mercury trines Pallas in earth signs. Not to be outdone, Mars makes a contra-parallel with Uranus (11:43PM) — with these two, potential planetary mischief-makers adding another psychic storm (particularly influencing relationships), and somewhat akin in nature to the Sun uniting with Pluto, to your New Year’s Day agenda.  [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.
