Sunday, January 20

There’s a lot of static and confusion in the Skywatch on Sunday.  The Moon opposes demanding Pluto at 6:01 am PST; Luna then opposes tricky mercury at 10:56 am which is likely to create a misunderstanding or challenge to your thinking Sunday afternoon. Caution flags are up Sunday night as the Moon squares contrary Uranus at 5:50 pm followed by Venus making a square to dreamy Neptune at 8:24 pm which will lead some folks into trouble with alcohol, drugs, and deception – best to keep it simple and safe Sunday night.  A Full Moon perches in the evening skies, exact at 9:16 pm and another very difficult aspect is powering up – details tomorrow.  As times change.

If your birthday is this week (January 20–26)

You’ve got a wonderful new Solar Return, Aquarius. The crown jewel is loving Venus sitting next to lucky Jupiter—both in generous and optimistic Sagittarius. This pair is also likely to increase your bankroll, too. Powerful Mars is also a major player in this chart of your new year. He sits in his home sign Aries and makes three important connections to other planets in your new SR: a square to Saturn and a trine to Venus and Jupiter. The square demands hard work and lots of patience with people and matters in the months ahead. However, the trines to Jupiter and Venus mean you’ll draw some aces and be rewarded for your efforts. Best advice: get out on the dance floor if you are looking for love; gamble on yourself in biz and life. The Force is with you, Aquarius. Times have changed.

Saturday, January 19

The Moon in home sign Cancer sails out into calm waters Saturday morning and green lights are up for work or play. 

The most challenging aspect in the Skywatch shows up Saturday afternoon at 4:28 pm PST when the Moon squares impatient and feisty Mars. 

Luna travels on to oppose grumpy Saturn at 5:48 pm. Peace returns in the heavens as the Moon trines gentle Neptune at 7:20 pm.

Quiet hours follow.

Friday, January 18.

Mixmaster.  We begin the day with a splendid trine between loving Venus and aggressive Mars, exact at 8:50 am PST.  Tackle the hard jobs first thing with this positive marker hanging out in the heavens. 

But double check the details as Mercury meets intense Pluto at 12:01 pm which could cause a breakdown in communications or someone trying to manipulate the facts – Pluto is a manipulator deluxe. 

Unexpected reactions and events are likely Friday night as the Sun squares unpredictable and rebellious Uranus at 5:30 pm.  Something good could come of it as the Moon sextiles Uranus two minutes later and then turns Void of Course until she enters Cancer at 7:44 pm.

As times change.

Thursday, January 17

Talk, talk, talk.  Words are likely to be flying today as the Moon travels through loquacious Gemini. 

Morning hours are the best for important calls and shopping.  Astrological skies have mixed signals in the afternoon hours at the Moon opposes sensitive Venus at 11:54 am PST and then sextiles eager Mars at 12:32 pm.  

A touch of confusion shows up Thursday afternoon when the Moon squares dreamy Neptune at 5:57 pm.  Luna sails on to oppose opinionated Jupiter at 7:10 pm and you’ll be sorry if you bring up politics tonight. 

As times change.

Wednesday, January 16

Tackle the hard jobs first thing.  Green lights are up for work or play as we start the day.

The Moon in earth sign Taurus trines healing Pluto at 1:17 am PST early Wednesday morning and then sails out into calm waters.  The kiss of the day appears at 10:34 am when the Sun and Moon form a lovely trine creating a balance between the Sun’s ego and the Moon’s emotions.

Caution lights kick on a minute later as Luna turns Void of Course until she enters talkative Gemini at 5:00 pm – here’s another good moment to speak up and to ask for what you want.
