Weekly Forecast ~ Week of January 22nd
It’s a relatively quiet week from an astrological perspective but the truth is we are building up to next week’s Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Leo so I wouldn’t be surprised if the sensitives among us were already feeling the tension build in anticipation of that Full Moon Lunar eclipse.
The themes this week seem centered around Mercury who rules communication and thought patterns. How do we use our words? Are we encouraging others or manipulating them with what we say? How are we using the thoughts inside our own head? The other major theme this week involves Mars ingress into the sign of Sagittarius that happens on Friday. Read more about that below!
Monday January 22 ~ What’s going on today: not a lot
When we have a quiet day it allows us to focus on ourselves and our personal goals. Since today is Monday this makes it a great day to kick off your weekly goals both in terms of fitness and health as well as work in a great way. Use today to set yourself up for a week of success.
Tuesday January 23 ~ What’s going on today: not a lot
Another day to build on the momentum that started yesterday. We will also be dealing with the themes that started last week with Jupiter and Pluto meeting energetically in the sky. This aspect continues to be triggered throughout this week and we feel the theme of personal leadership coming up again and again. Use today to engage in this energy by deciding to be the authority in your own life.
Wednesday January 24 ~ What’s going on today: Mercury conjunct Pluto
What it means: Mercury conjunct Pluto is about speaking to power. This can be encouraging and creating a groundswell of support through brilliant and uplifting rhetoric or it can be cruel and manipulative, depending on how a person uses this power in their own life.
Questions to ask yourself: Are you trying to control others? Are your words wise? When you speak the truth can you do so compassionately or are you brutal about it?
Thursday January 25 ~ What’s going on today: Mercury sextile Jupiter
What it means: When Mercury and Jupiter get together there is sometimes a risk of saying too much. Since Pluto is also involved (see the info from yesterday) sometimes our words can be used against us when we speak of things that are better kept to ourselves. I mention this simply so you can keep it in mind today and all week. On a positive note Mercury and Jupiter can be incredibly optimistic and hopeful so we can harness the natural optimism and infuse that into our own lives.
Questions to ask yourself: Are your thoughts generally negative or positive? Is there a way to better phrase the way you think about something to gain a more helpful and hopeful perspective?
Friday January 26 ~ What’s going on today: Mars enters Sagittarius
What it means: Both Mars and Sagittarius have energies that love to take risks and just go for it so with that in mind we have some potential excitement under this transit! Mars stays in Sagittarius until mid March so we have a couple of months where our impulses may get the better of us. Personally I love taking risks and I love being spontaneous but I also think at least a little foresight will help before jumping straight in. With Saturn in the sign of Capricorn this should help balance any recklessness. On the other hand if there is something you always wanted to do but have been afraid to try … hey this is the perfect time!
Questions to ask yourself: What risks am I ready to take? What have I always wanted to do but been too afraid to try? How can I be more active in general in my life? How can I have more fun?
Saturday January 27 ~ What’s going on today: not a lot
This is a great day to focus on the themes of communication, leadership, and risk-taking. Since the daily energy is mild we have the opportunity to focus on the bigger picture.
Sunday January 28 ~ What’s going on today: Mercury square Uranus
What it means: The mad scientist in all of us is abuzz with ideas. As is the revolutionary within us all. Today has something of a wild pace to the day. Our mind moves faster than usual and we may also be dealing with impatience, ours or from other people. It’s a good day to revolutionize something in your own life … just take care you don’t metaphorically throw the baby out with the bath water in your impatience to change!
Questions to ask yourself: What could I do differently? In what area of my life am I the most impatient for change? What creative approach could I take to accomplish the change I seek?
What are you working on this week? I would love to hear about it!
