This is a good point in the Cosmic Calendar to remind you that solar and planetary alignments from one day don’t just disappear in that 24-hour time-period. Therefore, yesterday’s Clash of the Titans — where Uranus squared and Pluto merged with the Sun — is still being psychically played out, but in a more subliminal way and somewhat below the usual conscious range of awareness.
In the meantime, supportive, 60-degree sextile patterns — from Venus to Saturn (6:16AM) and the Sun to Chiron (6:32AM) — try to give you a boost in the arts, business matters, and on the healing front. Mercury — the ancient Messenger of the Gods — follows yesterday’s lead of Venus by entering quirky, eccentric Aquarius (5:09PM) until March 12. This lengthier-than-normal stay in a zodiacal sign by Mercury is due to its slowing down in forward motion over the next 2+ weeks as it will make a station and turn retrograde on January 21, and with this reversal staying in force until February 11.
Today’s incandescent moment occurs at 8:54PM when the Sun and Moon reach their monthly Full-Moon crescendo — this time activating 15 degrees of Capricorn and Cancer. Individual and group meditations are encouraged. Send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and the kingdoms of nature. Ponder on the spiritual keynote for Capricorn — Lost am I in light supernal yet on that light I turn my back. While revelations can pour in before, during, and after the Full Moon, the exact time also begins a very long void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts for 30+ hours until 3:04AM on Tuesday. Be a minimalist when it comes to decision-making while the lunar orb is temporarily on the cosmic sidelines. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.
