Your Astro Week Ahead: Jan 14 – 20
The Moon moves through the crescent and first quarter phases, which bodes well for creating progress on newly begun projects.
Follow the Moon and allow ideas and opportunities to grow and evolve. Emergence, discovery and development are themes.
The Moon lights up the signs of Pisces, Aries and Taurus.
- You’ll drift through daydreams and be inspired by fantasy (Moon in Pisces, Tues/Wed)
- Feel the heat and take action based on desire (Moon in Aries, Thurs/Fri)
- Slow down to allow opportunities to marinate and fulfill potential (Moon in Taurus, Sat/Sun).
If you want all the details about the Moon’s movements in 2013, you need my 2013 Moon Calendar, which comes free with the 2013 WellBeing Astrology Guide.
In addition to the Moon’s movements, this week also brings some dynamic Venus links, spotlighting love and relationships. Since Venus is currently in Capricorn, where she prefers stability and security over excitement and drama, practicality is a big love theme.
Venus/Saturn: Thurs/Fri – this mature love energy helps you be realistic about what’s possible in love, and in what time frame. Don’t rush romance – Cupid needs time to organise things just so. The initial dance between two lovers sets the foundation for the future, so take your time and set things up right. Commitment and long term love planning is a theme, as you may be asked to make short term sacrifices for long term love security. Dating? Older or mature people appeal.
Venus/Pluto: Fri/Sat – this is an intense and deep love vibe that demands honesty and integrity. Secrets are revealed as with Venus and Pluto entwined there can be no togetherness without trust. Power themes can emerge so attempt to find that fine line between holding your power without being controlling. When everyone’s cards are on the table, it’s a great energy for seduction. Love can transform now, and it’s very much a case of ‘out with the old, in with the new’. Ditch unreliable people in favour of those that follow through.
Mercury cazimi is a great time to organise, catch up on correspondence (emails, texts, phone calls, paperwork), manage paperwork (ie file/de-clutter), set future schedules and generally deal with others around any practical or logistical stuff. It’s like the opposite of Mercury retrograde!
