Astrological Almanac for Saturday, January 23, 2021

Venus cooperates with Neptune to create an ideal atmosphere for artists and lovers. The Sun’s conjunction to Saturn tonight will temper that somewhat, but it may also just help focus and manifest. The Moon works nicely with both the Sun and Saturn this morning, which, if we’re lucky, can help with the “manifestation” aspect of the day’s aspects. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Friday, January 22, 2021

The Mars-Jupiter square grows until it’s exact just before 3am tomorrow. This can make us feel ambivalent about getting things done. It can also make us struggle between our desire to act, which can sometimes be due to impulsivity, and the ability to focus our actions. The Moon squares Mercury this morning, throwing some obstacles in our ability to communicate and be clear. Then in the afternoon, the Moon and Pluto work together to focus our authority and power. This applies mostly to folks with planets at the end of earth signs (Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo). At 2:42am tomorrow, Luna enters Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, January 21, 2021

There are no exact aspects today. We will still feel strongly the effects of the Mars-Uranus conjunction, especially since the Moon joined them a couple of hours before dawn. This may cause some lingering anger and frustration, especially of the sort that has built up over a long time, and is finally exploding. As Mars separates from his conjunction to Uranus, he’ll start to square Jupiter (exact on the 23rd), which tends to be a push-me/pull-you kind of energy in terms of energy level. More as we get closer to it. After midnight, the Moon flows with Venus and then Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, January 20, 2021

A very busy day astrologically. A few hours before dawn, the Moon squares Pluto, marking an extremely intense overnight, and the strong feelings will linger through the morning. This is the feeling in the air at inauguration hour in the capital. Mars conjoins Uranus today, which is a fairly explosive combination. They rise together near noon, and are exact in the mid-afternoon. See my post on January 2021 for more details. At 1:55pm the Moon enters Taurus, which will help with some overall stability. The Moon is exalted here, so that may help. This afternoon, Luna squares the Sun, then Read more…

Lunar Mansion 2

According to the medieval grimoire Picatrix: Associated image for magic/meditation: a crowned king Beneficial actions: reconciling and pacifying, dig for wells, find hidden treasure, planting wheat, turning one person against another, destroying buildings before they are finished, strengthening prisons

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, January 19, 2021

At 12:53pm, the Moon sextiles Mercury, making the morning especially good for communicating new ideas and old. It’s also potentially good for sales (merchanting=mercury). At 3:39pm, the Sun enters Aquarius, joining Jupiter and Saturn. The Sun here is opposite his home sign of Leo. So he’s not quite as solar now. In Aquarius, he signals a time to focus more on community building and societal structures, rather than a focus on the individual and the ego. For those stuck in ego-centrism or self-centeredness, this could be a challenging month. Overnight, the Moon squares Pluto, intensifying whatever is going on at Read more…

Lunar Mansion 1

On January 18 at 2:06 am the Moon enters Mansion 1 (Al-Sharatain “The Two Signals”), from 0º Aries to 12º Aries 51′. According to the medieval grimoire Picatrix: Associated image for magic/meditation: a man with his hair wrapped standing and holding a lance in his right hand Beneficial actions: beginning voyages, making/administering medicine, creating discord between spouses
