Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for January 13th

There’s no rest for the weary as the Moon makes its monthly conjunction with the red planet Mars in Aquarius (12:38AM PST). According to the traditional astrological rules relating to the void-of-course Moon condition, there is now another lengthy lunar uncertainty cycle to contend with that lasts until 2:50AM PST tomorrow.  It’s important to note that not every professional astrologer works with the void Moon placement and the reasons are far too numerous to list here. Suffice it to say, wisdom dictates that recognizing the void nature of the lunar trajectory can assist you in doing the very best with what the universe is offering up on its silver platter.  Today’s Moon-Mars union can send out many emotional sparks — some of which can inflame romantic bonds and business deals. Cooking, baking and cleaning your garden tools can be satisfying experiences since the Moon trines Ceres in air signs (12:13PM PST).  A trio of challenging aspects will keep you on high alert as Mercury moves into a dicey, 135-degree tie with Ceres (5:35PM PST), Vesta makes an off-kilter, 150-degree contact with Saturn (6:02PM PST), and Mercury also forms a frictional, 45-degree connection with Chiron (10:33PM PST).
