Mercury goes Direct and it’s time to begin new projects, make travel plans, but wait until the Moon enters Gemini in the afternoon.
1:43am – Mercury goes Direct at 28d51′ Sagittarius. We’ve had a short retrograde period, only since December 19th. Projects in the conceptual stages can begin now with renewed confidence and focus. Uncertainties are removed, plans move forward.
2:06pm – Moon enters Gemini. Moon enters a death cycle as we rush to complete all mental tasks. Hard to make a commitment until the Moon enters Cancer. Subconscious motivations and instincts direct us towards lots of communication and mercurial activity. Good for expressing your feelings. Emotional need to talk things over.
An irksome Monday. Moon (Gemini) squares to Pisces make the day a bit confusing with low energy. May feel some disappointment. Release expectation, the world is not perfect.
12:30am – Moon (Gemini) square Venus (Pisces) Very sensitive.
6:19am – Moon (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces) Desire to retract from others, feeling vulnerable.
4:40pm – Moon (Gemini) square Mars (Pisces) Feeling low on energy, hard to eat. Thoughts and emotions sourced from from the collective cloud your mind, make you irritable.
11:36pm – Moon (Gemini) sextile Uranus (Aires). Late in the evening our minds peak with curiosity. Feeling independent and self-reliant.
Challenge and opportunity on the same day. Sun square Uranus makes us restless and craving excitement, but Mars sextile Pluto requires that we focus our energy on important matters and transcend the limitations of self. Both aspects require that we change our current course of action, but let go of expectations and be ready for surprises.
1:53am – Moon (Gemini) trine Jupiter (Libra) Middle of the night.
2:32am – Moon (Gemini) opposition Saturn (Sagittarius) Middle of the night.
8:21am – Sun (Capricorn) square Uranus (Aires) A rebellious aspect that brings out our desire to be different and to break free of limiting situations. It can cause upset and disagreements. The need to prove your capacity for individuation can bring out very unsocial behavior. Some people will have the desire to control and correct other people. Some can be very judgmental (Capricorn) and cold (Uranus). Some may feel the need to severe themselves from oppressive situations with a powerful statement. This is a kind of “take this job and shove it” aspect. There is also a strange curiosity with the unusual that can be unhealthy.
All of this confusion comes from not knowing (Uranus) the proper next step that one needs to take in order to preserve what’s most important in life. We often have competing goals in life. Personal goals vs. career goals. Ideally they should mesh together nicely, but that is often not the case. Today we feel that more than most days as all Aires to Capricorn squares do.
You are more in tune with what is missing in your life than usual. This makes folks restless. Don’t let the restlessness get to you. The important thing to do is to use the increased intelligence that comes with this aspect to get more in touch with yourself and be honest and judgmental with yourself. In this way you are less likely to project that onto someone else.
Likely there is an increase in activity and people are moving about more than usual. In your rushing around, you may stop and yourself the question, what’s really important to you in life? Are you getting the satisfaction you need. If you have a hard time admitting the truth, it may be because the answer is that you have either been too selfish (Aires) or lack self-discipline (Capricorn).
If you do need to break free from an oppressive situation today, you have the energy and courage to do it. But first, ask yourself if changing internally is the better option for long term growth.
1:38pm – Moon (Gemini) opposition Mercury (Sagittarius). Confusion, communication is unclear. Bad time to make decisions. Void of Course begins.
2:49pm – Moon enters Cancer. We go into our shell to recollect our emotional energy and overcome feelings of vulnerability. Instinct plays a greater role in our actions for the next couple of days. Note this Moon (Cancer) gives us the Full Moon, so we are more sensitive and in need of a strong foundation than usual.
11:11pm – Mars (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) This aspect encourages us to transform (Pluto) our ego (Mars), work better within the group, transcend petty ego concerns, focusing on practical matters and work for the betterment of society. With Mars (Pisces) the ego is dissolving and along the way we encounter this strong burst of energy to carry us through. We are releasing old worn out ego patterns in preparation for the next cycle. Confusion can make it hard to determine the correct course of action and you may feel like you need to expend a lot of energy to get ahead, but really you just need to use your energy wisely.
Today we encounter the elements of our ego that we no longer need, but in a framework of an opportunity for change, not of judgment. The goal is that of the 4th quadrant, self-transcendence. So be open to opportunities that come your way, helpfulness from others. The universe could help you out on this one. Look for ways to incorporate yourself into a collective effort that will help sustain you and everyone else into the future.
The concurrent Sun square Uranus puts an interesting twist on this aspect. It occurs earlier and will get the energy moving fast and wanting us to make a break from the past. This aspect will want us focus all that the energy toward useful tasks and transcend the limitations of self. Taken together I see opportunities to really get in touch with your soul purpose, maybe even meet someone who changes your life in a radical way. All of the Mars/Aires energy wants to meet someone else who is interesting (Uranus) and spiritual (Pisces).
The early morning feels warm and tender with Moon (Cancer) trine Venus, Neptune (Pisces), but the evening could bring a lot of upset. Avoid dangerous places this evening. The Full Moon is fullest this evening and Moon opposition Pluto means it’s best we remain at home.
4:51am – Moon (Cancer) trine Venus (Pisces) A warm and tender moment. Want everyone to be happy. Very sensitive.
7:06am – Moon (Cancer) trine Neptune (Pisces). Very compassionate and tender. Also very sensitive.
7:05pm – Moon (Cancer) opposition Pluto (Capricorn) Very intense energies focused on the Moon. Could bring upset and disagreements. Insecurities create a defensive attitude. Feelings of revenge or hostility are common when you don’t have a secure foundation in life. Be careful of drug use and disagreements with your mother. Need to channel the energy towards securing the home and emotional security. Avoid dangerous places. Not a good time to be in public, more of a private time.
8:08pm – Moon (Cancer) trine Mars (Pisces) The emotional energy flows freely. A burst of energy good for an evening workout. Desire to eat more and fill the stomach.
8:43pm – Sun (Capricorn) square Jupiter (Libra). Much different from Sun square Uranus. This aspects gives us excess joviality. We are a bit louder than usual and more forgiving (Jupiter) of others (Libra). Aspect gives confidence in relationships and a desire to build a better future together with your partner. You can get a lot accomplished provided you can remain focused, which should be fairly easy with Sun (Capricorn). Be careful of overstepping your boundaries, but Jupiter (Libra) has a lot of diplomacy so you should be able to smooth out any problems that arise.
You’ll want to do something productive with the excess energy. Very good for all social activities, especially with the Libra to Capricorn square which encompasses the quadrant or self-expansion (3rd quadrant). So this aspect is all about social endeavors. Great aspect for a party or social gathering, or a meeting of a professional organization. Although the tendency with this aspect to be pompous and extravagant can lead to disputes on this Full Moon.
Please note: The Full Moon is early next morning. So the interpretation is more in effect on Wednesday evening. Apply all the upcoming warnings to this evening as well as tomorrow.
A very contentious Full Moon will lots of potential for disruptions, even violence. Lots of Police activity. This is a Full Moon of breakthroughs.
12:34am – Moon (Cancer) square Uranus (Aires). Desire a change, interested in the unusual.
3:07am – Moon (Cancer) square Jupiter (Libra) Tendency to over indulge. Feeling everything will be alright. Want to feed the insecurities.
3:34am – Moon (Cancer) opposition Sun (Capricorn). Full Moon and it is a rather disruptive one this month. Strong survival instincts (Pluto), need to break free from limiting circumstances (Uranus), all of which bring up a lot of insecurities. Cancer rules the home, so maybe it’s best to enjoy this Full Moon at home. The Moon forms part of a Grand Cross, a configuration which produces a lot of stability from which to grow. But the stability is only achieved after a lot of work balancing the qualities of all 4 planets. The need to balance the Sun and Moon is in a crisis to balance Jupiter and Uranus simultaneously. A lot of self-discipline is necessary to master this configuration. That’s the key phrase this month, self-discipline.
This is very important because the Jupiter opposition Uranus is the most powerful aspect happening right now. It represents so many of the fundamental changes happening in society today. It is creating a whole new dynamic for everyone to live by, more versatile and evolved, more successful and self-motivated, self-reliant. Everyone is looking to show self-mastery this month. And the Full Moon is calling us to bring forth our all of our creativity (Sun) and emotions (Moon) to meet this new dynamic. It’s very challenging.
The powerful Pluto opposition Moon means energies will be more tense than usual as people feel the need to prove their social relevance, show the world how powerful they are, possibly against their own better judgment (Capricorn). Potentially violent actions, crowd mentality could overcome some folks. Police actions more likely than usual.
Of course we must factor in Venus conjunct Neptune (Pisces) occurring later today. This is going to make people delusional and gullible, easy swayed by overly dramatic displays of victimization. But it may help to take the fight out of a lot of folks, so that may work out for the better.
This is a Full Moon of breakthroughs. If you haven’t broken through the veil of illusions surrounding your life and what you are suppose to be doing with yourself, then this Full Moon will bring that out. Be careful, avoid overindulging in drugs, dangerous people and places.
On a geopolitical level, the possibility of another false flag attack associated with this Full Moon or Friday the 13th, tomorrow, is strong, mainly because the squares to the recent Ju/Ur opposition, the same aspect that is bringing so much change. Now is the time for the new paradigm to stand up and prove its’ authority. Also the time when the old paradigm feels the most threatened. Now that Trump is soon to be inaugurated, certain factions within the cabal are facing certain death and will do anything they can to either stop it or strike back with vengeance. We could see them try to do something really crazy.
Void of Course begins, continues all day until afternoon.
6:04am – Mercury re-enters Capricorn until 2/8, after a short period in Sagittarius. Communication is more self-controlled, geared toward important matters, issues of self-preservation. Hard to change your mind. Persistence and conservative thinking masks ambition. People are more reserved and observe tradition. Thinking like it’s winter.
1:54pm – Venus conjunct Neptune (Pisces) Our feelings (Venus) dissolve (Neptune) into the collective and we seek a relationship (Venus) with everything (Neptune). Can bring on fits of great creativity and spiritual inspiration as well as delusional thinking. Sensuality (Venus) looses it boundaries and you feel free to explore whoever is standing next to you, regardless of who they are. We may all need some discernment today. Not a good time to make decisions.
Relationships that begin today will be dreamy and romantic, putting your partner on a pedestal. In general today we are looking for the perfect relationship, someone we can trust who won’t take advantage of us. We are unrealistic.
It’s hard to see faults in your partner. Easily swayed by emotional concerns or overt displays of victimization. Dreamy and vulnerable. Easy to absorb the feelings of others and the pain of the world. Feelings of disappointment may suddenly come upon you and you are not really sure why. The temptation is to project all of that onto your partner who may put on a pedestal, only to knock them down a bit later.
4:08pm – Moon enters Leo. Creativity and hobbies take on more importance the next couple of days. Instincts are very strong. Good to spend with your children.
It’s Friday the 13th and no exact aspects, not even for the Moon.
This is rather interesting. It’s Friday the 13th, the infamous day when we should be on the lookout for another false flag attack, just like 11/13/2015 in France. So it would not be surprising if we see another false flag for this reason alone.
A enjoyable Saturday with nice Moon (Leo) aspects, lots of creative energy for fun and recreation.
3:25am – Moon (Leo) trine Uranus (Aires) A jolt of mental energy to help you get motivated.
6:21am – Moon (Leo) sextile Jupiter (Libra) A pleasant aspect that gets the creative energy flowing.
7:17am – Moon (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Another positive aspect that keep folks moving slowly but surely towards their goal. Void of Course begins. Continues all day until the evening. A good day for recreation, not a day to start new projects.
7:52pm – Moon enters Virgo. We feel the need to get to work, attend to details and make sure everything is in order. We are more helpful and willing to do what needs to be done. Attend to your health as you will have a better intuition regarding what you need to improve your physical wellbeing.
10:58pm – Moon (Virgo) trine Mercury (Capricorn) Very nice aspect for communication. Able to talk in detail about many things.
A day to withdraw from mundane life and connect with nature. Excellent aspects for a hike in the woods or a mountain bike ride. Look for an earthly path that will lead you through your inner path. Animals are elemental forms that help guide us deep into the subconscious.
2:08pm – Moon (Virgo) opposition Neptune (Pisces) A very expansive moment for the emotions. Easy to feel lost or overwhelmed with feelings. The boundary between you and everyone else dissolves for a time and we respond with helpfulness. Excellent for getting in touch with nature and nature spirits.
7:58pm – Moon (Virgo) opposition Venus (Pisces) A similar aspect as the previous, same signs. Seeing the world through rose colored glasses helps to not see the bad side in others. Which could be good or bad, depending on the company you keep. Very easy to absorb foreign energies. Stay in a safe space tonight, avoid negative people and places, bad news or politics. Delve into fantasy instead. A nice bonfire outside would be a great way to release and purify the excess emotional energy.
There has been a lot of discussion regarding the recent UN resolution 2334. Here’s the wikipedia page on it. A very big event in world politics. And it’s rather amazing that this is happening as Trump says he would have vetoed the resolution. But whether or not you agree with the resolution, we really need to take a look at Israels’ transits.
Jupiter enters 1st house Feb 22. Brings more wisdom, awarness of past mistakes and let them go. Starts a 1 year time of inner expansion.
Chiron square Uranus (3/9/2017, 11/24/2017, 12/17/2017) A serious wound (Chiron) to their mobility, their hubris and their process of evolution (Uranus). Close the to 6th house – 9th house cusps. We are looking at an event that brings details (6th house) of the wounds they have inflicted on others and it hurts them on the international stage (9th house).
Saturn opposition Uranus (1/29/2017, 6/17/2017, 10/29/2017). Saturn restructures their evolutionary path. Can be a time of great achievement or great loss, depends on your Uranus and what you’ve done with it. For them it will be time of great limitations, less access to collective resources – feel like they’re cut off from the rest of humanity. Also a time of true growth and maturity.
By the 3rd pass, the new authority has reached it’s final decision regard the evolution of the the State of Israel. Limits are imposed. The concurrent UR opp ASC, 2nd pass, ensures that this moment is very contentious, likely there is open conflict in the State of Israel.
Uranus opposition Ascendant (5/16/2017, 10/27/2017, 3/8/2018) This transit is one of the most contentious transits in the book. And it begins a 7 year cycle that is for many, the most exciting years of their lives. People who are highly evolved, prosperous and mobile, socially empowered and very intelligent (Uranus) confront (opposition) you. If your intentions are to adopt their beliefs and to work along side them, then you develop a relationship (7th house) with them and it can be the most enlightening years of your life. It really depends on your intentions. For them it will mark the time when the rest of humanity finally confronts them.
End of October of this year is really big for them.
Pluto quincunx Pluto 1/31/2017. He faces a tough test of his power. This is the same aspect that helped bring Hillary down last September. A powerful force (Pluto) compels you to make a precise adjustment (quincunx) to your own power. If the adjustment cannot be made, then he is removed from power, just like Hillary.
In summary, despite Trump being very supportive of Israel, they face a tough test over the coming year. What happens this month once Trump takes office will be interesting to see. He is going to try and help them as much as possible, but USA’s inability to protect Israel will show the world that there has been a sea change in the world political structure.
Once again, thanks for viewing Weekly Astrology Notes and please leave comments.
This is just the start of what the new paradigm is doing to the State of Israel. I will be doing a more detailed analysis in a separate video.
