Just when it appeared that the red planet was calming down its often tension-creating behavior toward humankind, along comes a very dicey, 135-degree celestial relationship between potential adversaries Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries (2:47AM). These two titans of the heavens refer to opposite principles as Saturn rules over structure, form, logic, responsibility and regulations while Uranus connects with shock waves, surprises, intuition, rebellion, anarchy and overthrow of the established order. Slow your tempo across the board as this alignment builds up in power and for many hours afterwards.
Vesta makes a leap of faith by shifting gears from fiery Sagittarius to earthy Capricorn (3:49AM) — a sign where this key asteroid, associated with safety and security, home and hearth, insurance and investments as well as fellowships and sisterhoods, will remain until January 28.
While Saturn, Uranus, and Vesta stir the psychic pot on our home planet, the Moon in Taurus forms a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Neptune in Pisces (5:51AM) and a harmonious trine of 120-degrees to underworld-ruling Pluto (6:47PM). Utilize the Moon-Neptune rapport to write down important dreams and energize creative-artistic ventures. The Moon-Pluto affiliation can encourage your work with research projects and in-depth studies — especially related to psychology and metaphysics.
