This is another busy day astrologically. Pluto and then Saturn aligns with Ceres early today, and the Sun does the same later morning. We’re looking for meaning and we feel a strong sense of duty now, but we sense that we must let something go to move forward. There can also be a tendency to want to control things by organizing, structuring, or limiting our activities, emotions, projects, or care of others at this time. Slimming things down seems the best choice for improving our endeavors. This can be a time of great focus and power, but also a moment for a reality check. We’re reminded of the constraints of time and motivated by the desire to manifest tangible results.
On the one hand, we may feel burdened, overworked, or restricted. On the other, we can welcome some discipline in our lives. While the need to gain more control over our lives can feel pressing, we should guard against temperamental behavior and decision-making. There can be a small crisis that alerts us to an area of life that requires work, improvement, and transformation. The need to gain more control over our lives motivates us, although there can be some paranoia or extremes of thinking behind this. The focus should be on recycling, updating, revising, and eliminating so that we can grow, rather than starting something new or adding more to our plates. This is not the time to rush forward prematurely.
Also today, Venus moves into sacrificing, compassionate Pisces, bringing sweet but sometimes escapist energy to our lives, and especially our interactions and relationships until February 7th. Venus in Pisces is tender and affectionate, although hard to reach, as there is a longing for something hard to define and hard to satisfy. Borders and boundaries blur under this influence. The shadow side of this position can involve evasiveness and avoidance.
The void Moon occurs from 8:42 AM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Venus), until the Moon enters Virgo at 9:06 AM EST.
