Weekly Astrology Notes
Jan 31 – Feb 7, 2016
Note: Moon Aspects are for Pacific Standard Time (West Coast USA).
(1 pm) Moon (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces)
(4 pm) Moon sextile Venus (Capricorn)
Two gentle Moon aspect make for a pleasant Sunday afternoon.
(8 pm) Moon square Sun (Aquarius)
However, tensions rise to the surface on Sunday evening as things don’t go as planned. Need to remain flexible and seek creative solutions to any problems that arise.
Mercury (Capricorn) square Uranus (Aires)
This aspect will bring some stimulating conversation to Sunday evening. The 3rd recent occurrence of this aspect and we will see people looking a bit critical (Capricorn). Don’t look for agreement, as people will be looking to be different and will react at anything that limits their thinking. It could be a nerve-racking evening for some as they find the pace of activity does not suit their usually pleasant Sunday evening. It will be hard to keep track of all the ideas that come to mind on this evening. More insighful than the typical Sunday evening. Learn something new tonight.
(3 am) Moon conjunct Mars (Scorpio)
(4 am) Moon sextile Pluto (Capricorn)
Emotional irritability and intensity. Fixed emotional energy of these aspects means people will charge forward fearlessly, sometimes with no room for compromise. An audacious Monday morning with some folks looking for a fight. Money matters sure to be on the top of list of concerns this morning as people seek to make a bold move to secure their wealth.
(7 am) Moon sextile Mercury (Capricorn)
Brisk communication leads to new ideas. Communication with friends/associates takes on an enlightened quality. Also, many people feel they have something important to say. Take a moment to write down your thoughts or let someone know how much you care about them.
(5 pm) Moon sextile Jupiter (Virgo)
Indulgence is likely as people expand and enjoy good conversation with friends.
Void of Course (V/C) begins and continues until Tuesday morning. So Monday evening is a great time to relax and unwind.
(8 am) Moon enters Sagittarius. Expansive emotions are the norm for the next couple of days. People enjoy anything that expands and livens up their lives.
No exact aspects today.
WEDNESDAY 2/3 – Fantastic Day
(1 am) Moon (Sag) square Neptune (Pisces)
Should make for nice/prophetic dreams. Try to remember them when you awake because Wednesday could be a fantastic day. Two of the best sextiles you can find. Mark your calender.
(11 am) Moon conjunct Saturn (Sag), Moon sextile Sun (Aquarius)
Warms up the Sun sextile Saturn aspect. Both Moon aspects and the Sun aspect happen within 1 hour of each other during mid-morning. An excellent addition to an already fantastic morning.
A great time to get in touch with your feelings and to be with friends.
2/3 – Mars (Scorpio) sextile Pluto (Cap)
Early morning. People have the energy to accomplish almost any task. Sustained energy working for the common good will yield extraordinary results. Ego energies are aligned with the common good. People will feel that urge to merge and work together to accomplish something important.
2/3 – Sun (Aquarius) sextile Saturn (Sag)
Mid morning. This and the two accompanying Moon aspects could make for a wonderful Wednesday morning. Excellent time to accomplish things. People’s minds are working towards a better future. Seek the advice of an older or wiser person, make plans for the future, focus on completing mundane tasks that will improve your life. An excellent day to plan for success. Friends and associates you meet now will help you get ahead in life.
(5 pm) Moon (Sag) trine Uranus (Aires)
Wednesday evening should be different. People will not want to drive home in the exact same way as they do everyday as they seek something different and unusual. The excitement of the day continues as people gather with friends in larger than usual numbers to discuss the days events.
All of these positive energy for Wednesday makes me feel like something really good could happen that day. Let’s keep our minds on that thought.
A mellow day.
(2 am) Moon (Sag) square Jupiter (Virgo)
Folks will be feeling lazy this morning, will want to indulge and stay in bed.
Moon V/C begins, continues all day until….
(5 pm) Moon enters Capricorn
A good day for meditation as Moon will be void of course all day. A calm respite from yesterday. A V/C Moon in Sagittarius is sure to produce visions in meditation. The mind travels when the Moon is in Sagittarius.
(8am) Moon (Cap) sextile Neptune (Pisces)
A dreamy morning as we seek a connection to the collective. Try to remember your dreams. With all the Moon Neptune aspects happening in the middle of the night, recalling your dreams is a common theme this week.
The mid-week calm ends on Friday afternoon. The intensity begins. There is a lot to talk about for Friday evening.
Venus conjunct Pluto (Capricorn)
Afternoon about 5 pm. Last week we had Mercury conjunct Pluto, this week it’s Venus’ turn to get intense. People want sex and money! Intense sexual encounters are favored, but behind closed doors (Capricorn). People will be looking to explore the depths of their subconscious and delve into their innermost desires. Be on the lookout for manipulative lovers or anyone who would use negative emotions to control you. So long as you are totally open and honest, your partner should be able to respond to your feelings.
Capricorn likes to play the master, but the energies rising to the surface cannot be mastered alone, you need a partner of equal depth to help you understand the trans-personal aspect of your own personal nature. No one can play master with this energy and this is how problems can arise.
If you can overcome your need to be in control and can be very open and honest, and if you can share this energy with an intimate partner, then the healing that comes from it can be enormously fulfilling. That’s because Capricorn loves to achieve and grants us success every time we honestly deserve it.
Again we will see the Moon coming in to warm up the aspect. 3rd time this week.
(10 pm) Moon conjunct Venus and Pluto
(5 hours after Venus conjunct Pluto).
Pretty significant that both the feminine planets will conjunct Saturn at the same time. What does this tell us about the feminine on this day? The divine feminine will arise on this evening in a very powerful way.
With the Moon coming into the same degree, there could be a tendency to see some really strange and manipulative behavior in some people. The volcanic energy bursting forth in Capricorn will cause some people to be frightened by themselves as they seek to control that which is coming up from the depths within them. This cannot be underestimated so I need to make and important point here. The combination of Scorpio and Capricorn are the most volatile combinations possible. The transformation possible under this influence is strong, but so is the critical and compulsive and destructive nature that comes with it. For some people, the honesty necessary for the healing to take place is far too great for them to handle. For these people, they will feel the need to use deceit or coercion to get what they need, particularly if it is to save their reputation. So a strong warning needs to go out for Friday evening to steer clear of delving too deep into subconscious desires as you may become infatuated with the dark side of life and get depressed or worse, victimized.
(11 pm) Moon square Uranus (Aires)
With the Moon square Uranus, everyone is more aware of what they are NOT getting in life, more aware of their unmet emotional needs and those of others. Can make for erratic exchanges between people as everyone seeks independence and freedom from restrictions. This makes for a tumultuous ending to an already very intense day.
2/5 – Mars (Scorpio) quincunx Uranus (Aires)
And lastly, another aspect that could make for a rather difficult day. This aspect carries with it a compulsion to fight, particularly with anyone whom you think has too much freedom. Insecurities arise that people can’t seem to shake off so the energy comes out, typically in an intense manner that leads to confrontation.
Head-up go out to all for this day, Friday Feb 5th. Be careful.
(12 am) Moon (Cap) sextile Mars (Scorpio)
(7 am) Moon conjunct Mercury, trine Jupiter
Warming us up for the Mercury trine Jupiter just 3 hours later in the day.
Moon V/C begins, continues all day until ……
(10 pm) Moon enters Aquarius
2/6 – Sun (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aires)
Morning. With Sun in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus), and Uranus in Aires (Sun exalted), arguably one of the best sextile that can occur.
2/6 – Mercury (Cap) trine Jupiter (Virgo)
Morning. One again this aspect is warmed up by the Moon for the 3rd time this week! That’s why I say the Moon is our friend this week. This trine is very productive. Why? Because the two opposing forces,Capricorn and Sagittarius, enable controlled expansion of awareness and communication. A love of knowledge coupled with an appreciation for structure and tradition make this an excellent day to read or to write. A good time to do everything from curl up with a good book to take a long hike in the woods. Physical exercise, especially endurance, is favored. Skiing would be very appropriate because Capricorn loves to climb mountains. Whatever you do today, you should be able to get a lot accomplished today.
What a contrast to the previous evening! So, if you can overcome the demons of Friday evening, Saturday morning should have some wonderful surprises in store for you.
2/7 – Sun (Aquarius) square Mars (Scorpio)
Early Morning. Ego conflicts. Sun is fallen in Aquarius and Mars in Scorpio senses weakness. A fixed sign square that will make it hard to find your motivation and hard to get along well with others. Things often don’t work out as planned. Adjustments are necessary to find compromise. If you can find an outlet for the considerable physical energy level that you have this morning, then you can accomplish a great deal. Recommend physical activity that involves a long, sustained expenditure of energy.
Note: Not the best day to get on the wrong side of the law. Police actions at this time likely will not consider human rights. Brute force likely in such situations.
2/7 – Venus (Cap) sextile Mars (Scorpio)
Morning. Intense encounters between men and women. Venus wants to be shown off in Capricorn, while Mars focuses and remains fixated on total success in Scorpio. In general, this aspect is a good time to be with friends, favors harmonious conversation and generally enjoying the company of others. Should make for nice super-bowl parties.
These two aspects activating powerful Mars in Scorpio means a fight to the finish. Both are good aspects for a sports competition.
Note that the Moon in Aquarius will be crossing over the USA’s Mid-Heaven and Moon (9th house, sports) during the day. So that should make for an emotionally charged Super-Bowl.
(10 pm) Moon sextile Saturn (Sagittarius)
A wonderful aspect to calm down from the week and relax on Sunday evening.
Some folks may be curious about some terrorist event at the Super-Bowl, but I see no aspects to indicate that in this weeks aspects. However, as I noted recently in my video on Hillary Clinton, the USA is getting the last pass of Neptune square Uranus on February 13. This powerful aspect has yet to produce a significant event that most people can distinguish. The general loss of USA’s dominance in the world is tied to this transit, and although there have been several important dates, no specific event.
