This week features intense energies of rapid change and expansion. The planet Uranus is highlighted as he makes multiple squares to the Sun, Moon, and Mercury. Things get shaken up big time this week as the Universe is no longer waiting for us to make the change and get out of our comfort zones. We will be forced to if we aren’t choosing to expand. We also have a focus on Venus who will be shifting her dynamic of how she expresses her love and affection. We are opening up to new experiences and opting for growth over stagnation. Mars is also very active this week and Mars in Aries is not here to play around. He’s here to light the fire, to spark within us the passion that has lied buried within. This will be a very interesting week of energies where nothing will be the same after this. Bring it on angels.
January 18th~ Venus trine Mars
This is a beautiful aspect that is blending the masculine and feminine energies. Venus is currently in Sagittarius, the fiery truth seeker, while Mars is in the warrior sign of Aries. These two fire energies are coming together to ignite that passion within us to stand up in our truths that we know in our heart and to power forward no matter what stands in our way.
January 18th~Mercury conjunct Pluto
When any planet conjuncts Pluto, it takes on an intensity and powerful energy. Mercury conjunct Pluto takes us into deep concentration and focus on the transformation of our thought patters and belief systems. What we thought we knew may come crashing down in perfect Pluto fashion. Both Mercury and Pluto are in Capricorn so the thought or belief system will be centered around the patriarchy, the government, and authority. Secrets and dark truths can be revealed we never saw coming.
January 18th~Sun square Uranus
With the Sun square Uranus were in for a jolt of some kind, an intense shakeup. Uranus is the rebel planet and he could care less about your comfort zones. The Sun in Capricorn highlights our goals, our ambitions and our own personal power, while Uranus in Aries is about our identity and our passions. There is tension between who we are and what we believe in and our goals and current position. If we aren’t living in integrity with our soul we are in for a huge wake up call as Uranus is no longer allowing us to live a lie.
January 20th~Sun enters Aquarius
The Sun will enter the humanitarian sign of Aquarius on January 20th. Aquarius is a fixed air sign, so their mentality tends to be very rigid and they refuse to follow the status quo. They think outside the box and they love being different from the norm. Aquarius’ are also very future oriented and they understand that the collective has to evolve forward. They see the whole picture and focus on what is best for all rather than for individuals. The lower aspect of Aquarius is that they are very detached emotionally and simply look at all things objectively, they have a hard time understanding individuals and are able to grasp theoretical concepts much easier. Aquarius also rules technology so we will be seeing a focus on that and how it is harming the collective consciousness.
January 21st~Super Blood Moon Full Lunar Eclipse in Leo
This is one of the post powerful moons we will have all year long. This is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, a Blood Moon, in the sign of Leo. This eclipse occurs at 0 degrees Leo, the most potent degree there is. This comes just a day after the Sun moved into Aquarius, Leo’s opposite. This is wrapping up an intense Aquarius/Leo cycle that we have had since 2016 where we experienced a series of eclipses in these signs and the North & South Nodes were placed here.
The Aquarius/Leo axis is all about the collective versus the individual. Leo represents our hearts, where our passion for life lies, our creativity and our child-like essence. Leo is our unique energy signature that we hold as part of the whole. Aquarius is the collective, the One composed of all unique aspects. All of the eclipses that have occurred in these two signs the last 2.5 years have been pushing us to express our individual and unique soul essence and share it with the whole. Be fearless in our pursuit of honest expression of who we are while also accepting others’ unique expressions. UNITY consciousness. This is the final eclipse on this axis and will be the final release of anything false being held onto that does not represent our true essence.
January 21st~ Venus square Neptune
Venus in Sagittarius will square Neptune in Pisces on the same day as the Blood Moon Eclipse. Our love for truth and urge for expansion and freedom will be causing tension with our ideals and our dreams. Maybe there is some illusion we must see first or some fantasy we have to break out of. Once we do, we can harness our imagination and see appreciation for our spiritual knowledge and connection. Expansion and our higher selves are involved here.
January 21st ~ Mars square Saturn
On the same day of the Blood Moon Eclipse, we also have Mars squaring Saturn. This is a jam packed day of energies. Mars in Aries squaring Saturn in Capricorn brings some crisis between our actions and our responsibilities. We may want to move forward at full speed ahead but Saturn is slowing us down, asking us if we’ve covered all our basis. Our actions must be done consciously and with intention, discipline, and focus. Be bold and be relentless.
January 22nd ~ Venus conjunct Jupiter
On January 22nd, Venus in Sagittarius will conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. This is a feel-good expansive energy that is going to have us bursting at the seems to let our love flow freely, to expand past our comfort zones, and to be in a place of full acceptance of all new experiences. This aspect can also lead to over indulgence and taking things too far, but as long as we are centered and in alignment, this is a breakthrough energy that takes us to the next level of trust and surrender.
January 22nd~Mercury square Uranus
On the same day, Mercury in Capricorn will square Uranus in Aries. Once again we have Uranus shaking things up. He is super active this week showing us that nothing will be same after this. He is not leaving any stone unturned. With Mercury square Uranus, there is another test in letting go of what we thought we knew. There is also a test in our communications. Do we react or respond? Do we communicate from a place of EGO or from the heart? Are we able to put our divine thoughts into manifestation?
January 24th~Mercury enters Aquarius
This will be a breath of fresh air as Mercury moves from serious Capricorn into non-attached Aquarius. Our communication, our divine thoughts will all be redirected from the serious nitty gritty of Capricorn and will instead switch to the wider perspective. We will begin to take on a more expansive view and anchor in our multidimensionality. Have we been solely focused on ourselves and our own goals (Capricorn)? Now we will be focused on the whole, on the greater good and how we can create unity and co-creation (Aquarius).
