SPRING 2016

March, April and May

 

March, April and May will be a busy three month period. Several important and overlapping energies will occur. They are:

1. Jupiter in Virgo Square Saturn in Sagittarius

In Effect: March, April and May

Time to Make Some Needed Changes

Jupiter’s desire to expand and improve will be expressed through the earthy Virgo qualities of analysis, fact-checking, practicality and attention to detail. Saturn’s urge to be responsible, duty-bound, authoritative and traditional will be expressed through the fiery Sagittarian qualities of looking at the big picture, strong philosophical, moral and religious beliefs, a search for truth and justice and outspokenness. The square aspect indicates that these two energies are likely to be in conflict with each other at first. Progress may be blocked as each side digs in and insists on having its own way. In the world, this square is likely to be a crisis point involving political, social and economic structures.

In our personal lives, we may also feel blocked. This could be minor or major, depending on our individual charts. We will want to expand and improve, but we may not know how to proceed. What to keep? What to let go? Jupiter in Virgo indicates we might underestimate our potential or get caught up in worry and details. Saturn in Sagittarius indicates we might be so sure of our beliefs and their “rightness” that we dismiss or overlook important information.

During this three month period we can break free of patterns that have been leading us in a circular path like a hamster on a wheel. If there is an area in your life that fits that description, you can be sure that by thinking and behaving in the same old way, you will continue to end up in the same old place – stuck. Something has to change. If you could get unstuck, where would you like to go? First, take a cold, hard look at what is really holding you back and ask yourself, “How many of these limitations are self-imposed because of old attitudes or beliefs, habits, fear, guilt  or an exaggerated sense of responsibility?” Second, open your heart and expand your vision of what is possible in your life. Then do something about it.

You can find ways to begin to manifest your dreams during this three month period. It will be a process that takes until the end of May or early June to complete. It probably won’t be easy and will require patience and determination, but it will be worth it.

Dates when this pattern will be most active:

March 3 to 5, 7-8, 13-14, 20 to 29

April 3 to 6, 14 to 20, 25, 28 to 30

May 2, 8 to 11, 15, 21 to 29

The following birthdates will be strongly affected: Virgo born September 3 to 10; Sagittarius born December 3 to 10; Gemini born June 1 to 8; Pisces born March 2 to 9.

If you know your birth chart, look for the houses containing 11 to 18 degrees of Virgo and Sagittarius. These will be the areas of your life where the need for change could occur. Also note if you have any planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven at 11 to 18 degrees Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, as these parts of you will also be involved in the changes.

 

 

2.  Jupiter in Virgo Trine Pluto in Capricorn

In Effect: March

Opportunities to Improve Life and Expand Power

This energy pattern is directly related to the Jupiter square Saturn information in #1 above and can be quite helpful – if we take advantage of it. Pluto’s desire for transformation and power will be expressing its energies through the realistic Capricorn qualities of organization, structure, authority and responsibility. Pluto’s energies blend very easily with the Jupiter in Virgo qualities of analysis, practicality and a love of facts. We can use this realistic energy to analyze and determine what practical steps will be necessary to expand our horizons. This will also help us let go of attitudes, situations, habits or whatever is no longer useful in our lives and make room for a wider viewpoint and new opportunities. We are likely to have reasons to feel optimistic about the future and could be offered a chance to expand our potential. However – opportunity could pass us by if we don’t make an effort, try something new and take some sort of action ourselves. What we do now can be enhanced the last half of June when Jupiter will trine Pluto one more time.

Dates when this pattern will be most active:

March 6 to 8, 12 to 21, 26

May 8 to 13, 29-30 (The Jupiter-Pluto trine will start building again and will come back in June. During the days shown in May, the Jupiter-Pluto energies will be receiving a positive boost.)

This can be a particularly fortunate time for the following birth dates: Virgo born September 6 to 11; Capricorn born January 5 to 10; Taurus born May 5 to 10. It is also fortunate for Cancer born July 6 to 11; Scorpio born Nov 6 to 11; Pisces born Mar 5 to 10.

If you know your birth chart, look for the houses containing 14 to 19 degrees of Virgo and Capricorn. These will be the areas of your life where the need for change could occur. Also note if you have any planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven at 14 to 19 degrees Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, as these parts of you will also play a role in improving your life.

 

 

3. Uranus in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn

In Effect: March to mid-April

Are We There Yet?

We are still dealing with a long term pattern of tremendous upheaval and change on a global scale (and for many of us in our personal lives) that has been occurring over the past several years. This energy pattern indicates we are living in a time of “radical restructuring” in the world and in our personal lives. We are being faced with the repercussions of previous actions, choices and decisions.

This energy pattern won’t really be gone until 2020 when several new major cycles take over. Until that time, it will weaken and will have a flare-up now and then. Even though it is no longer exact, it has been quite strong since the end of December 2015 and will likely continue until mid-April 2016. We can definitely see the more negative manifestation of this energy playing out in the world as anger, frustration, upsets and fighting (e.g. USA politics, one of many examples in the world).

March through mid-April will continue to see situations that have been brewing for quite some time get stirred up, which can result in unexpected and transformative changes. It will not be business as usual.

Dates when this pattern will be most active:

March 4, 10, 24, 29 to 31

April 5 to 10, 17 to 22

Something could occur that is an important step in an ongoing transformation in your life that will continue through the end of this year for the following birthdates: Aries born April 4 to 10; Cancer born July 6 to 12; Libra born October 7 to 13; Capricorn born January 5 to 11.

If you know your birth chart, look for the houses containing 14 to 20 degrees of Aries and 14 to 20 degrees of Capricorn. These will be the areas of your life that are undergoing a radical restructuring. Also note if you have any planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven at 14 to 20 degrees Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, as these will also play a role in your transformation.

 

 

4. New Moons and Full Moons, Eclipses and Supermoons, Oh My!

In Effect: March, April and May

We all know about new moons and full moons, but you may or may not have heard about Supermoons. Supermoon is a term originated in 1979 by astrologer, Richard Noelle. A Supermoon happens about 4 to 6 times year when the new moon or the full moon occurs while the Moon is at (or within 90% of) its closest approach to earth (perigee).

Some feel a Supermoon increases the possibility of strong tidal forces in the earth that can result in extreme high tides, severe weather, earthquakes or a tsunamis. The effects last from three days before to three days after the new or full Supermoon. If the Supermoon is also an eclipse, its influence is stronger – from at least a week before to a week after the new or full moon. There have been some earthquakes and tsunamis close to Supermoons, but obviously, we do not have a natural disaster every time we have a Supermoon. Still, the Moon does have an impact on the earth (e.g. it does increase the tidal force of the ocean), so it seems like it would be reasonable to think that the closer it is, the stronger its affect will be. We can also say from an astrological standpoint, that a Supermoon could have a somewhat stronger effect on us as individuals than a regular new or full moon.

We will get a chance to test this out for ourselves over the next three months because the new moons in March, April and May will all be Supermoons. Since we can’t see the new moon, it won’t make the visual impact that a full moon does, however it still is a Supermoon. (We will be able to see three full moon Supermoons later this year. The full moons in October, November and December 2016 will all be Supermoons.)

There are also two eclipses in March. A solar eclipse at the Supermoon New Moon and a lunar eclipse at the Full Moon. Eclipses indicate a shift in direction which results in a change in circumstances over the next 3 to 6 months. This is another reason to believe that March, April and May 2016 will be a pivotal time.

 

March 8, 2016: Supermoon New Moon/Solar Eclipse at 6:54 pm, MST, 19° Pisces. Because this Supermoon is also a solar eclipse, it could be strongly felt from at least March 1 to 15. In addition, this solar eclipse opposes Jupiter, squares Saturn, sextiles Pluto, is semisextile Uranus, and activates  1. and 2. above. Jupiter is also in a challenging aspect (a quincunx) with Uranus, which adds even more energy to the mix. That should get March off to a brisk start!

Birth dates most strongly affected: Pisces born March 5 to 11; Virgo born September 8 to 14; Gemini born June 6 to 12; Sagittarius born Dec 8 to 14.

If you know your birth chart, look for the house containing 16 to 22 degrees of Pisces. This will be the area of life in which the changes could occur. Planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven at 16 to 22 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius may also be part of a shift in circumstances.

 

March 23, 2016: Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 6:01 am, MDT, 3 ° Libra. Decisions being made over the next four days are important. More shifting.

Birth dates most strongly affected: Aries born March 22 to 26; Libra born September 24 to 28; Cancer born June 22 to 26; Capricorn born Dec 23 to 27.

If you know your birth chart, look for the houses containing 1 to 5 degrees of Aries and Libra. This will be the area of life in which the changes could occur. Planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven at 1 to 5 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn may also be part of a shift in circumstances.

 

April 7, 2013: Supermoon New Moon at 5:24 am, MDT, 18° Aries. This new moon is conjunct Uranus in Aries. This will activate the radical restructuring energy (see #3 above) by conjuncting Uranus and squaring Pluto. Expect fast-paced and possible surprising or unsettling developments April 5 to 10.

 

April 21, 2016: Full Moon at 11:24 pm, MDT, 3° Scorpio. Developments related to actions taken around the New Moon on April 7 above come to fruition.

 

May 6, 2016: Supermoon New Moon at 1:29 pm, 17° Taurus. This should be a favorable time for business and financial activities or anything that is down to earth, stable and practical.

 

May 21, 2016: Full Moon at 3:14 pm, 1° Sagittarius. May 20 to 24 will be a high energy time. It will be important to slow down and take a few deep breaths as people in general may be feeling impulsive and a bit hot headed. Drive carefully. This could be a time of culmination when many of the things we have been working on since March are in the final stretch.

 

 

5. Mars Retrograde

In Effect: April 17 to June 29

Back to the Drawing Board

 

Mars is the planet of action and energy. It is the inner drive that makes us go after the things we want in life and represents action, energy, passion, determination, anger, courage, confidence and strength. Mars is our personal warrior energy and rules the fight or flight response. Mars also rules the military, law enforcement, surgeons, militants, weapons, violence and fire.

Around every 26 months there is a period of about ten weeks when Mars goes retrograde (appears to move backwards from our perspective on earth). The Mars retrograde period is usually not the best time to begin something brand new. But it is a good time to redirect our energies and to revitalize and work on something we have already initiated. We can use this time to regroup and strengthen our position. Then when Mars moves forward again we will be in good shape to bring things to a successful completion.

Mars will be retrograde in Scorpio and Sagittarius from April 17 to June 29, 2016. Since mid-February you may have been thinking about something in your life that you already started and would like to work on again. When Mars goes retrograde you will find you can do just that. Another possibility is that something you have already been working on is delayed or changed, requiring you to either wait or to go back and redo what you have already done. It’s okay! Delays or reworking will ultimately make it a better project. Once the retrograde periods ends on June 29, it is likely to take until around August 22 to tie up all the loose ends cross the finish line.

Dates when Mars will be most active:

March (Pre-retrograde: 4, 11 to 18, 24 to 26)

April (Pre-retrograde: 1, 10, 12), Retrograde: 15 to 17, 24

May Retrograde: 4- 5, 7, 14, 20 to 25, 27

Birth dates most strongly affected: Scorpio born November 14 to 21; Sagittarius November 22 to Dec 2; Taurus May 13 to 20; Gemini May 21 to 31.

If you know your birth chart, look for the houses containing 22 to 29 degrees of Scorpio and 0 to 10 degrees of Sagittarius. These will be the areas of your life in which Mars will direct its retrograde energies. Planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven 22 to 29 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, or 0 to 10 degrees Sagittarius, Gemini Virgo or Pisces will also be play a role in the Mars retrograde period.

 

 

6. Mercury Retrograde in Taurus

In Effect: April 28 to May 22

Get Your Ducks in a Row

Mercury, the planet of communication, mental attitudes, commerce and transportation goes retrograde about three times a year and is part of a natural cycle that gives us an opportunity to stop, catch up and clear out. On April 28 Mercury will go retrograde in the sign of stable, earthy and practical Taurus. Time to get our lives and our checkbooks in balance and focus on finances, business, practical matters and completing projects. It will also be a good idea to double check communications and travel plans. Since Taurus has an affinity with nature and gardening, this could be a good time to work outside in the garden or just spend time outdoors in general. Mercury will go direct on May 22. Want more information? See: What is Mercury Retrograde?

Although the usual caution to double-check all communications, drive carefully and focus on clearing up old matters applies, this particular Mercury Retrograde period looks like it will be a good time for working on ways to expand and improve life in a material way. The only major aspects Mercury in Taurus will make are positive trines to Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn (forming a grand trine) and a conjunction to the Sun and Venus. All positive aspects. This is an indication that the opportunity exists to manifest things in the world that are tangible, stable and secure. This will be very helpful to # 2 and # 3 above. Don’t wait for your fairy Godmother to appear and wave her magic wand. It will take personal effort and action to fulfill the potential of these positive energies.

Dates when Mercury will be most active:

April (Pre-retrograde: 1 to 18

May Retrograde 9 to 13, 20 to 24, 29-31

If you know your birth chart, look for the house containing 14 to 24 degrees of Taurus. That is the area of your life where Mercury will be retrograde. Also note if you have any planets, the Ascendant or Midheaven at 14 to 24 degrees Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius, as these parts of you will also feel the Mercury retrograde energies.

 

Have a Wonderful Spring!

FEBRUARY 2016    

2016 Valentine

 

Times shown below are Mountain Time (Zone 7), either Standard or Daylight time, as appropriate. See pertinent astrological aspects for the month at the end of this Forecast.

 

February 2016 Overview

In February we will continue to see transformative and challenging energies in the world, as Uranus and Pluto remain close to a square formation. (For more information See Radical Restructuring article.) This is part of a long term pattern of tremendous upheaval and change on a global scale that started in 2008. We are now being faced with the repercussions of the actions, choices and decisions that have occurred since 2008. This pattern should start to weaken by the end March, but is likely to be felt off and on until mid April 2016.

Although the challenging Uranus-Pluto pattern stays in place, February will be different than January because the faster moving planets are always moving and changing. There will be several bright spots with positive and hopeful energies this month. See the February Week by Week forecast below for more information.

_________________________________________________________________

 

February 2016 Week by Week

 

February 1 – 7

Feb 1- 3: Despite being bombarded by current political and outer world events, this three day period can be a positive one in our personal lives. We are likely to feel more optimistic and positive and realize we are actually getting something accomplished.

Feb 4-7: Focus on routine chores, maintenance and completing what has already been started during the daytime hours (MST) on Feb 4. That evening will be a good time to clear the decks and get ready for the weekend. Feelings in general and relationships in particular may be intense, changeable and exciting on Feb 5-7. Breakthroughs and new possibilities are possible. We have the opportunity at this time to look beyond the details of our current challenges and see the “big picture” that lies ahead.

 

February 8 – 14

Feb 8: The NEW MOON in the humanitarian and futuristic sign of Aquarius occurs at 7:39 am, MST. This New Moon could bring out some differences of opinion regarding the future and ego conflicts in the outer world that will reach a climax around Feb 22. In general, Feb 8 will be a day of high energy with a tendency to be impatient or easily irritated. Avoid needless confrontations. By counting to ten and channeling our energies into productive outlets, we can accomplish a great deal. The seeds we plant now will blossom at the Full Moon on Feb. 22.

Feb 9-10: This is likely to be a positive time. The energies are an effective blend of compassion, imagination, vision and practicality. People are likely to work well together. Feb 10 would be a good day to have a meeting or come together for a group planning session.

Feb 11-12: These are fast-paced days of action, tension and getting things started.

Feb 13-14: In general, this should be a positive time and an excellent weekend to get things done. We are likely to feel optimistic and energized. Valentine’s Day is Feb 14, so this will be a romantic weekend for some. The most favorable time to celebrate Valentine’s Day will be anytime on Feb 13, or until 4 pm (MST) on Feb 14. The late afternoon and evening of Feb 14 are not likely to be relaxing and fun because there could be a tendency to push too hard which may cause animosity, overwork or physical stress. Slow down and take the evening off.

 

February 15 – 21

Feb 15-16: These are good days for intellectual activities and communication with one exception: Feb 16 between 9-11 am, MST, – hold back at that time. Get out and about, learn something new or do something to stimulate your brain cells.

Feb 17-19: The focus could be on home, family, security and feelings during this time. The energies will be active and possibly challenging on Feb 18 from about 5 to 10 pm, but other than that, this can be a good time to take care of domestic and personal matters.

Feb 20-21: In our individual lives, this can be a good weekend to do something fun, creative, romantic or entertaining. In the outer world, we may notice an intensifying of challenging energies.

 

February 22 – 29

Feb 22-23: The FULL MOON in the discerning and analytical sign of Virgo occurs on Feb 22 at 11:20 am, MST. This Full Moon is the culmination of seeds planted around the New Moon on Feb 8. It could be a very tense time out in the world, especially for the US.

If there is something that has been brewing in our personal lives, it is likely to reach a peak on Feb 22-23. The energies of this Full Moon suggest a new awareness and perspective could be revealed that are surprising and transformative. By the afternoon of Feb 23, we should begin to see some positive benefits due to our new understanding of the situation.

Feb 24-26: Information and communication over this three day period can be very helpful and productive. New ideas, cooperation and positive relationships are possible. The only time that there could be tension or restlessness is on Feb 26 between 12:00 am and 5 am. Some may find it hard to sleep. Keep a pen and notebook handy. We could get flashes of insight and intuition during the wee hours and throughout the day on Feb 26. Write your ideas down before they slip away!

Feb 27-28: Feelings are passionate, imaginative and inspirational during this period. We will have a desire to get to the heart of a matter. Psychic sensitivity is strong. Pay attention to insights and intuition.

Feb 29: This day can provide us with opportunities to have positive, stabilizing and practical interactions with others. We will appreciate our friends and relationships. Between noon and 2 pm, MST, we may have the courage to take the initiative and get something moving. However, there will also be a tendency to come on too strong, be irritable or overly forceful during that 2 hour period. This can be fine if you are calm and confident. If you are feeling pushy or irritable, wait until a little later for interactions with others. The peak of the positive energies is around 6 pm, MST, and will continue through the evening.

 

Love and Light to All You Beautiful Spirits!

Judy

JANUARY 2016

 

Times shown below are Mountain Time (Zone 7), either Standard or Daylight time, as appropriate. See pertinent astrological aspects for the month at the end of this Forecast.

A NEW YEAR BEGINS                        

 

January 2016 – a new year begins and the question arises, “What lies ahead over the coming year?” Astrology can’t tell us exactly what will happen, but the astrological patterns in 2016 can provide us with a description of the types of influences or “energies’ we will be experiencing and the times when they will be most likely to manifest. It can also provide suggestions on how to use these energies effectively.

 

THE WORLD IN 2016

The world and mass consciousness will continue to deal with many of the same energies we experienced in 2015. Although we are slowly moving away from the unsettling transformation, disruption and changes that have occurred throughout the world since 2008, there are still many unresolved problems that will move into 2016. Social unrest, terrorism, immigration concerns, Middle Eastern conflicts, economic concerns, unstable and unusual weather, and the craziness of the political presidential race in the US will all continue. There will be times throughout 2016 when some progress can be made, but it will most likely be in November and December 2016 before we begin to feel we have passed through the hardest part of a challenging period.

 

2016 OVERVIEW

January and February 2016

This two month period is likely to be tense and similar to November and December 2015, as Uranus and Pluto remain close to a square formation. For more information See Radical Restructuring article. This is part of a long term pattern of tremendous upheaval and transformation that the world has been experiencing since 2008. Even though the pattern is starting to separate, we still have to deal with the repercussions of the actions, choices and decisions that have occurred since 2008. This pattern should start to weaken by the end March, but is likely to be felt off and on until mid April 2016.

In our personal lives this influence can provide us with the energy to restructure and reorganize where necessary. For some, this will be minor. For others, this can be a time of major restructuring. If this describes your life, don’t sap your energy fighting the changes. Instead, use your time and energy to focus on getting your ducks in a row and doing what needs to be done. See January forecast below for more information.

March 2016

March will bring the need to find a way to balance practical considerations with the desire for improvement and growth. It is also a month when big transformations could begin that may last through June. Important decisions and adjustments are likely. There can be a great effort by some to obtain power. We may see political/social/economic power plays in the US and in the world in general.

 

From Mid- April to the end of June 2016,

Mars, the planet representing action, energy and the military, will be retrograde in Sagittarius and Scorpio from Apr 17 to June 29. Plans for action may need to be reviewed. We can use this period to revise or complete our plans and projects. Military campaigns could also be revised or stymied during this period. Patience and taking the time to get things done correctly is likely to be required.

May and June 2016 could bring further developments and a completion of activities begun in March. See March 2016 above.

 

From June to October 2016

The world is likely to be forced to deal with some troubling issues and feelings that bring uncertainty, fears, confusion, discouragement and low motivation. This can be related to energies that were strong in Nov and Dec 2015. The influence we will be feeling is the square of Saturn in Sagittarius to Neptune in Pisces. Basically this is a challenge between our hopes and ideals versus the unpleasant aspects of reality. This energy pattern requires us to face things we would rather not deal with and have been hoping would go away. Yet we feel unsure about what to do. These issues are likely to have started in November 2015 and include:

  • Challenges regarding political, moral, ethical, religious and social belief systems.
  • Environmental or health challenges, especially regarding water, the weather, oil, chemicals, poisons and drugs.
  • Previous plans and projects that were based on faulty foundations may dissolve. Until hidden weaknesses are found and corrected, new plans will be undermined or collapse.
  • The necessity of facing reality and dealing with a situation we cannot avoid.

Because of the duration of these energies, we may feel overwhelmed, discouraged and uncertain during this five month period. This can cause us to view our challenges as more difficult to overcome than they really are. This is a temporary situation. Instead of focusing on what is wrong, look for what is positive in the world – yes, it will be there! Appreciating nature, friends, family and kindness given and received is a good place to start. Our confidence and energy will return when this influence has passed.

September 2016 is likely to be very intense month, which will cause yet another shift in direction.

October 2016 could bring surprises around the Full Moon on Oct 15. By mid-October we should feel the gloominess of the Saturn square Neptune energy pattern starting to evaporate. Hooray!

 

November and December 2016

We may sense that something is changing. There are still challenges, but exciting and positive potentials will bring us renewed energy and optimism in December of 2016. These energies will carry over to 2017. Everything won’t be magically resolved, but we will feel hopeful, energized and ready to tackle whatever needs to be done.

 

Our Personal Lives in 2016

Events in our individual lives are not likely to be nearly as dramatic as world events, but we will certainly feel the prevailing energies. How they will manifest in our lives depends on each individual chart, but we always have a choice as to how we react to whatever comes our way.

The most challenging influences, though uncomfortable,  can provide the impetus to make needed changes or breakthroughs in our lives. Likewise, even the most positive influences can be overlooked or taken for granted and fail to be utilized.

Things will get better, but we will have to be patient. We can use the energies in 2016 to help us reorganize our lives and rid ourselves of possessions, situations, attitudes or fears that weigh us down and hold us back. By doing this, we will ultimately improve our lives and experience renewed optimism for the future by the end of the year.

We are all going through this together. It can be helpful to accept, honor and view the events and experiences in 2016 as the current conditions on humanity’s path of spiritual evolution. We are passing through this time and learning from it, but we will move on.

One thing we can always count on is that everything changes.

January 2016

January 1-9:

This will be an intense time, but also a time when we can start the process of changing our lives for the better, whether we want to or not!

Jan 3-4: We may feel like something is shifting on Jan 3. Avoid discussing important matters or making decisions from Noon to 3 pm (MST), as there could be a short-lived tendency for miscommunications, emotional over-reactions and hasty decisions. Helpful and practical insights and positive relations with others can occur on Jan 4 during in the afternoon. By that evening, we will feel a further intensifying of energy and sense that the week ahead could be important.

Jan 5-8:  Several important astrological influences are occurring.

On Jan 5 Mercury, the planet of communication travel and technology, will turn retrograde. This will occur at the same time that Mercury is squaring Mars, the planet of action, assertion and impatience. Not a particularly easy combination. Energies will be high and we may have a strong urge to get things done, but be mindful of a general tendency to be irritable, impatient, argumentative, stubborn or over-assertive.

Mercury will be retrograde from Jan 5 – 25. This time period can be used to finish up projects that have already been started and to clear up and clean up our environment. Basically it is a time for “re” words – revise, repair, rethink, recover, reorganize, research and re-evaluate. It is also a time when delays, changes or misunderstandings may occur regarding communications, technology, commerce, transportation and travel. Double check and verify communications, travel plans and contracts. Click here for More Information on Mercury Retrograde.

Venus will be squaring Neptune on Jan 5, which indicates a tendency to be overly idealistic and unrealistic, especially in relationships. However, it is also a very creative and compassionate influence and good for creative inspiration.

And last, but certainly not least, the Sun in Capricorn will conjunct Pluto in Capricorn the evening of Jan 5, and then will move on to square Uranus in Aries on Jan 7. This strongly suggests that the energies of transformation and change will be activated this week.

Jan 6-7: The energies during this two day period continue to be unsettled. Our routine or plans could be disrupted due to the unexpected, or changes could occur that leave us feeling uncertain.

Jan 8: Relationships tend to be serious and reflective. Practical considerations and a responsible outlook regarding financial matters bring about positive results.

Jan 9: The NEW MOON occurs in the realistic and organized sign of Capricorn at 6:30 pm (MST). This New Moon will strongly activate the radical restructuring energies and indicates that the next 28 days will continue to be a time of change and transformation. We can use this energy very productively. Determine what needs to be thoroughly re-organized over the next four weeks and get started. Whether it is minor or major – this is the time to make some changes.

 

January 10-16

Jan 11-14: Although the challenging energies remain with us, this four day period will add some lighter and positive energies. Spirits may lift and we could feel excited, stimulated, enthusiastic and more optimistic and hopeful. We may have begun making changes that are improving our lives. There may be a few hours of doubt or confusion during the morning and early afternoon of Jan 13, but it will fade out quickly. Jan 11-14 will be a good time to focus on the positive ways we can enhance our lives. Take advantage of the opportunity to do so.

Jan 15-16: The energies are fast paced and spirited. These two days are likely to refocus our attention on the areas of change and reorganization in our lives.

 

January 17-23

Jan 17-18: This is likely to be an enjoyable two days. Around Noon (MST) on Jan 17 could be a little hectic, but after that, Jan 17-18 will be good days for relaxation, entertainment, stability and socializing. It is also a time when we may be feeling spiritual, charitable and compassionate. It will be a good time to help others. Only one caveat – there could be an urge to be overindulgent, extravagant and to overspend. Wait until you can think things over before making any big purchases.

Jan 19-22: The energies change from easy and pleasant and return to active and changeable. Mercury’s retrograde influence will be strong and will remain that way through Jan 31. Double check communications, travel plans and agreements. Be extra aware while driving.

Jan 23: The FULL MOON occurs in the generous and positive sign of Leo at 6:46 pm (MST). Actions we began at the New Moon on Jan 10 are now in full bloom. We should be able to see some results from our efforts to make changes and transformations in our lives over the previous two weeks. Our work is not done, but we are making progress.

January 24-31

Jan 24: We may feel a little over emotional early in the morning, but the afternoon will be a high energy time in which we can creatively blend the old with the new in our quest to reorganize our lives. Do something fun and different this evening.

Jan 25-26: Mercury finishes its retrograde motion on Jan 25 and goes Direct, but its retrograde qualities will be felt strongly through Jan 31. Continue to double check communications, travel plans and agreements. Be extra aware while driving. Communications may be confusing Jan 25-26. Verify plans.

Jan 27: This is a good day to get things done. Work and health concerns are favored. Our efforts should be productive and bring positive results.

Jan 28-31: The unsettled energies of change and transformation will be strongly active once again. Jan 28 to Feb 7 will be the last big push to get ourselves reorganized. By the end of Jan, we may be surprised to see how much our lives have been restructured and changed in only one month!

 

Love and Light in 2016 to All You Beautiful Spirits!
