Some weeks glide in effortlessly, others fly under the radar. This week bolts from the stalls in spectacular fashion due to Monday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse or Wolf Moon to be exact. Why the Wolf? Because in the Northern Hemisphere this was the time that wolves would howl from hunger in and around the villages of India. The lack of food was from the cold. So theres something primal about this lunation. Something pack like and instinctual. The sign that the Eclipse falls in is Leo, sitting at a very potent 0 degrees. Issues around loyalty will roar as will protecting what is ours. Lunar eclipses essentially black out the light of our lady Luna, High Priestess of all things emotion, family, home and nurturing. They reset our emotional responses but sometimes not without upsetting our norm first.
Coupled with this energy are links from the Moon and Mercury to Uranus, the zodiac’s wildcard. There is much pent up emotion just itching to come out resulting in fatigue and lack of concentration. People and things behave in decidedly, ermmmm, unique ways. Uranus values freedom and originality. On the flip side there's knee jerk reactions, lack of commitment and rebelliousness. So you see here that this Moon has quite the signature. Don’t go throwing your whole life away based on a whim, if you can’t keep calm and carry anything then find a nice quiet place to lose your crap and do look at unusual solutions to existing problems. This Moon also links beautifully to Ceres, goddess of nutrition, Providence and fertility. Lovely. There is bounty to be had by not getting swept away in the chaos.
Venus is meeting up with the mysterious Neptune,blurring lines and creating romantic illusions. Still, brilliant for the creativity. Mars trips over Saturn and obstacles result but patience can be borne from a tactical approach. All of this on the 21st of January. Heck.
On the 22nd of the month Venus is right back in the spotlight with glorious Jupiter. This aspect won’t happen again until November so grab hold of the potential that manifests when these two benefics unite. Finances, happiness and relationships all reap the rewards from this combo. Ahhh…optimism. Such a feel good transit as long as we don’t go completely over the top and crack onto the boss or something. Mercury meets with the nodes that day so something will shift in the way in which we communicate and present our thoughts.
Speaking of...Uranus short circuits Mercury on the 23rd of January which I’ve discussed a bit above. Today it is exact. Machinery and cars can go haywire although we can hatch some brilliant plans. Just make sure you follow through. It's a tad temperamental this one.
On the 24th of the month, Mercury, once again, is on the move. This time into the sign of easy breezy Aquarius until February the 10th. These two aligned are stubborn, utterly strategic and cooly detached. Seek out those who support your ethos and with whom you can be utterly yourself. Just be you. Everyone else is taken.
On the 25th of January macho Mars joins forces with bountiful Jupiter so if you want to throw your all into a project, now is the time. Not only is this awesome for physical prowess, especially in the fire signs of Aries and Sagittarius respectively, but its perfect for knocking holes through the walls presented early this week. Great for confidence, productivity and creativity.
Go get em tigers. Have a brilliant week. xoxo
