Astrological Almanac for Friday, January 14, 2021

(All times Eastern) Mercury is officially retrograde as of 6:41 am this morning. They have been slowing down for a while, and now begin a three-week trek apparently backward against the background of the zodiac. See the Weekly Context Post for more detail, but standard “Mercury retrograde rules” apply here. Leave extra time, use extra attention, and be patient with yourself and others. See the link below for my series of posts that I bundle as my “Mercury Retrograde Survival Kit.” The Moon squares Neptune today, intensifying the fuzzy, illusory nature of knowledge and information now. This alone would feel Read more…

Lunar Mansion 6

(All times Eastern) On January 13 at 6:51 am the Moon enters Mansion 6 (Al-Hana “A Mark”), from 4º Gemini 17′ to 17º Gemini 8′.

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, January 13, 2021

(All times Eastern) The Moon urges us today to communicate and deal with all sorts of details. Resist that urge. As she’s flowing beautifully with Mercury, and coming from Mercury’s own sign (Gemini), Mercury is just about at a standstill, turning retrograde tomorrow morning at 6:41. So just don’t. Unless it’s urgent, it’s not a day to trust in words, pronouncements, etc. Start double-checking everything. See the Weekly Context Post for more details. Later tonight is a good time for finishing projects and then sitting back and enjoying having fulfilled obligations. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-january-10-2022/ Mercury Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, January 12, 2021

(All times Eastern) Still coming off the effects of the Mars-Neptune square, we may feel sluggish as if we have an energetic hangover today. See the Weekly Context Post for more details. Aside from that strong influence, the Moon makes more gentle connections to the Sun and Pluto today that help restore our energy a bit, but also remind us of past relationship challenges that may still linger. It’s OK now to just acknowledge them without diving in to try to put them all to rest. Luna enters Gemini at 10:08 pm, which will continue to bring the energy level Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, January 11, 2021

(All times Eastern) Today’s exact Mars-Neptune square is likely to dominate the day. We may feel a lack of energy, motivation, or focus. See the Weekly Context Post for more information. The morning may have us feeling either a little rebellious, or holding the ground against someone else’s rebellion. Tradition wins out a bit as the morning wears on. Tonight is a very good night for low-key relationship maintenance as well as self care. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon Weekly Context Post: https://www.lafond.us/blog/todays-astrology/astrological-context-week-of-january-10-2022/ Mercury Retrograde Survival Kit: https://www.lafond.us/blog/blogposts/mercury-retro-series/ 11 Jan 2022 07:21 Mon Cnj Ura 10°Ta50′ 10°Ta50′ 11 Jan 2022 11:53 Read more…

(All times Eastern) At 9:46 am, the Moon moves into grounding Taurus, encouraging us to focus a bit on material things and self-care.
