The energy is pretty calm this weekend, with only supportive planetary aspects in the skies as the Moon transits the mystical and other-dimensional sign of Pisces. This weekend is an excellent time to spend time in solitude and escape into fantasy or spiritual retreat. At the very least, this will be a cozy energy for creative projects or simply curling up on the couch with a warm cup of tea to immerse ourselves in a good book or movie (fantasy and sci-fi would be an ideal match for this energy).

Friday (1/19): The Moon goes Void-of-Course at 4:52am MST after a challenging aspect to Mars, indicating the potential for acting too hastily on emotional impulses. The Moon is VOC all the way throughout the morning and into the early afternoon until 1:26pm MST when it moves into the mystical, fantastical sign of Pisces. The VOC Moon is not an ideal time for new action or to engage in important plans or communications as projects initiated during the VOC Moon tend to not pan out. This is, however, an excellent time for introspection, tying up loose ends or taking care of routine tasks. After the Moon moves into Pisces, it will be making a supportive aspect to Saturn, allowing us to get back down to business!
Happy birthday to all of my Aquarius friends! Today the Sun moves into the enigmatic and individualistic sign of Aquarius! With the Sun in the friendly, yet detached sign of Aquarius, group interactions are highlighted along with humanitarian pursuits and scientific innovation. This next month is an excellent time for networking with all the right people, connecting with friends in far away places via the internet and for social gatherings of all kinds! Throughout the next month, people are more prone to idealism and sticking to their guns when it comes to the belief systems they hold dear. This sometimes makes Aquarius quite dogmatic in their viewpoints. Throughout this period we are likely to see political standoff between groups holding on tightly to certain beliefs, with neither side willing to compromise their ideals. This energy will be especially apparent toward the beginning of February after the Full Blood Moon Eclipse in Leo, when the Sun and South Node will make their exact conjunction. Overall, this energy favors community, innovation, revolution, and collaboration. An excellent time to stay connected with those who hold the same ideals, and to plan projects accordingly.
Mercury in Capricorn will come into a supportive sextile today with Neptune in Pisces today, bridging the gap between the practical and the fantastical. The energy of this sextile is wonderful for creative writing and becoming more imaginative in our day-to-day thoughts and communications. Today people will likely become more dreamy, romantic, and idealistic in their thought processes, and this energy will be especially apparent for those with their Sun/Moon/Rising or other personal planets in Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo and Gemini.
Saturday (1/18): No major planetary aspects today. The Moon is transiting the mystical sign of Pisces, making a conjunction with Neptune and a supportive sextile with Mercury, highlighting yesterday’s Mercury/Neptune Transit. This dreamy energy will make today a wonderful time to escape into fantasy or romance. It’s not necessarily an energy for getting things accomplished or doing any heavy lifting, this is more or less a time for rest and relaxation.
The Moon takes on a dreamy, magical quality in Pisces. Intuition, connectedness and imagination are heightened. Situations, people, or special circumstances may manifest themselves from out of nowhere, bringing incredible synchronicities. People become more empathic, and it may become difficult for some to discern between their own emotions and the emotions of others. This is an excellent time to delve deep into the spiritual realms. People may intentionally become more detached as a coping mechanism to guard themselves against intense emotions. Some may get lost in fantasy or drugs and alcohol to achieve this end. There is a danger of disillusionment as people are more susceptible to deception. The energy of moon in Pisces can bring great beauty, insight and romance when used appropriately.
Sunday (1/19): No major planetary aspects today. The Moon continues to make only positive, supportive aspects to Pluto, Jupiter and Mars today, helping us to merge our intuition and imagination with what it is we are creating out in the world. After it’s last aspect in Pisces, a beneficial trine with Mars, the Moon will go Void-of-Course from 6:13pm MST until it moves into the active and passionate sign of Aries late tonight at 11:27pm MST.
Have a beautiful weekend! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! :)
