Happy New Year to all of my readers out there! 2018 is starting off with a BANG with a big, beautiful Supermoon in Cancer! This Full Moon is ACTION PACKED and super strong in it’s home sign, and is the biggest, brightest and closest Full Moon we’ll experience throughout all of 2018! As part of a powerful Kite formation, this Full Moon brings both feelings of internal crisis and emotional catharsis as well as many beautiful and supportive external gifts.
Monday (1/1): Today, on the first day of 2018 we will experience the most potent Supermoon of the year. At 7:24pm MST, the Moon will reach its fullest point in its home sign of Cancer— ringing in the New Year with an energy that is fraught with intense emotional experience. This is a great day to spend time doing things that feel most comfortable, taking care of the home, property and family. This energy is also great for nurturing close relationships with family, friends, and loved ones. Today may bring about an emotional catharsis for some, and if this is the case it’s advisable for us all to seek out support from the people in our lives who help us to feel safe and cared for. The Full Moon in Capricorn brings us back into balance after focusing on all of the hard work and responsibility the overtly-Saturnian energy of this month has been centered around thus far.
Tuesday (1/2): Today the Sun in Capricorn comes into a supportive sextile with Neptune in Pisces, adding a bit of compassion, creativity and romanticism to the otherwise stern, Saturnian energy of the Sun in Capricorn. This is an excellent energy for working on creative projects, beginning new, more structured spiritual practices, or for loving and compassionate undertakings that serve to help those who are less fortunate. This energy is a bit more relaxed and unstructured, and also supports taking a short break from the daily grind or easing ourselves more gently back into our work after a long holiday vacation.
Today Uranus officially Stations to move direct at 24 degrees in Uranus, bringing about a major change-up in the area of our lives being most directly impacted by this transit. In Aries, this could bring about crisis or accidents as people are more inclined to act quickly and impulsively at this time. On the flip side, when Uranus stations it can bring downloads, flashes of insight and divine inspiration that helps us to find new and innovative solutions to problems that have been plaguing us for quite some time. For some, there might be an underlying feeling of frustration or anxiety that compels us to make a major life change once Uranus begins moving forward more quickly over these next few weeks. Whatever the case for you, pay attention and make note of what comes up for you today as there may be clues and new insight into what needs to be changed moving forward.
Wednesday (1/3): Today Venus in Capricorn comes into a supportive sextile with Neptune in Pisces, picking up where the Sun’s energy left off during it’s transit to Neptune just two days prior. Venus and Neptune do well together and this energy brings romance and heightened compassion and connection in relationships. This is also a nice aspect for visualization exercises, particularly when it comes to manifesting our deepest desires.
Thursday (1/4): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is beginning to wane in the romantic and emotionally expressive sign of Leo throughout the day today, going Void-of-Course beginning at 4:10pm MST.
Have a beautiful week! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! :)
