Stay in your pajamas.
The Moon trines eager Mars at 7:37 AM CST Sunday morning and that might help you get breakfast started. But Luna turns Void of Course a minute later and remains in this unfocused part of her cycle until noon tomorrow! Mercury is still Retrograde from last month and will continue to back up on the bases until Feb 11 adding another note of fog to the day’s activities.
And the topper is sweet Venus meeting spacey, creative and sleepy Neptune in the heavens at 11:36 AM. This pair loves to lounge about, eat cinnamon rolls and ignore reality. Neptune’s compassionate and spiritual side will prompt many into action at the same time. But this is not the day to spend serious money or to gamble that matters will turn out as you wish.
Evening hours are pleasant, but keep it simple. As times change.
The Skywatch is excellent for work or play on Saturday. The Moon in home sign Cancer trines sweet Venus in Pisces at 10:56 am CST creating a lovely atmosphere for morning shopping, chores and conversations.
Trines are created by planets in the same element. Cancer and Pisces are both water signs—they speak the same emotional language. So this is a good time to tell someone you love (Venus) how you feel (Moon). Venus is also the artist and the Moon can inspire her to create lovely things. So it’s also a good time for beauty treatments and for buying art.
The soft vibe and creative inspiration in this pair continues as the Moon trines imaginative Neptune at 1:21 pm Saturday afternoon. Music, art, theatre, movies, fishing, helping others, and a stroll through the metaphysical book store all get the green light with Neptune. Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night.
Confusing. Stick to routine and stay out of the line of fire today.
A cynical Venus Saturn square expires at 2:32 am CST early Friday morning. A gentle Moon Jupiter sextile follows at 3:24 am. But Luna then turns Void of Course until Saturday morning!
Meanwhile, eager Mars makes a harmonious sextile to Pluto at 7:36 am just as the Sun meets Mercury Retrograde in the heavens. Mars and Pluto add fuel to the day but give us no real direction. The Sun meeting Mercury Rx could be a Winston Churchill moment in your life, or it could sound more like a scene from The Three Stooges. Best then to hold off on finalizing matters with Mercury Rx, the Moon V/C and Curly walking around on Friday.
Evening hours are quiet until the Moon enters Cancer at 1:09 am early Saturday morning. Gamblers will be breaking out a new deck of cards at this moment. And you may then suddenly need a cookie or two—Cancer rules the tummy.
As times change.
One foggy moment and then green lights.
The Moon squares spacey Neptune at 4:11 am CST early Thursday morning which can throw a strange dream into your awareness and disturb your sleep, ruled by Neptune. But Luna quickly moves on and the Skywatch clears less than an hour later.
There’s a strong and positive lineup of planetary connections, or aspects, to follow in the heavens today. Dress for success. And remember to double-check the important details as Mercury is Retrograde. A stellar Sun Moon trine at 10:07 am sets up an excellent morning to deal with the boss and authority figures, or to be one yourself. Luna travels on to trine Mercury Rx at 1:35 pm opening the door to positive connections and a meeting of the minds—speak up. Especially since the Moon sextiles friendly Uranus at 5:13 pm suggesting an agreement.
Caution lights kick on a minute later as the Luna squares hasty Mars at 6:12 pm while a grouchy square between Venus and Saturn powers up Thursday evening. Exact at 2:23 am early Friday morning, this challenging Venus Saturn square can put a cold, selfish or cynical vibe into attitudes and actions tonight. The less you have planned the better. Be aware of your circumstances if you are out late as this square triggers criminal behavior in some folks.
As times change.
Stick to routine.
The Moon turned Void of Course last night and will remain in this unfocused part of the lunar cycle until she enters talkative Gemini at 4:36 pm CST. Communication problems are always more likely when Mercury is Retrograde and even more so when the Moon travels through Gemini and Virgo, the two signs ruled by Mercury.
That’s likely part of any problem that comes up this evening as the Moon squares lazy Venus at 7:57 pm and then opposes grumpy Saturn at 10:44 pm.
This is not the night you would pick for a wedding.
I’m calling it early.
Loose lips sink ships.
Some folks say things they wish they hadn’t during Mercury Retrograde. And everyone gets that chance to blurt out something stupid/uncalled for as the Moon squares Retrograde Mercury at 10:55 am CST Tuesday morning. Or this is when you get a customer with no clue about the product and what they are asking for.
Problems with computers and cars are also more likely this morning as Mercury gets the rulership of the machines we use to travel in and to communicate with. Often these machines will malfunction or barf during this part of Mercury’s cycle and yet not be broken, and return to normal operation a few weeks later without the necessity of sending them to the shop to be fixed. Mercury is a trickster when he appears to be backing up in the heavens—this is the time to get a second opinion on anything that seems excessive or unusual.
Errors in estimates and appraisals will be common, as well as inaccurate assumptions you make on first time events. This is the reason it’s best to wait until after Mercury ends his Rx cycle to initiate new plans and to finalize matters—you might change your mind and suddenly realize you would rather not commit. This is also when underdogs tend to win more in athletics, and in life. And here comes the Super Bowl.
Luckily, there’s a nice kiss in the Skywatch Tuesday immediately past the square as Luna quickly travels on and trines healing Pluto at 11:36 am. Good news is brewing this evening in the heavens as Mercury Rx lines up in a complementary sextile to brilliant Uranus at 11:03 pm. People and events from the past often surface during Mercury Rx. This could be the case tonight and might even spark a few folks to call someone from the past out of the blue to reconnect—the lines are open. As times change.
