Astrological Almanac for Monday, January 4, 2021

The Mercury-Pluto conjunction is exact this evening, with the Moon working with both of them today, making the day a good one for focused study, writing, evaluating, and decision making. This afternoon, Luna conflicts with Venus, so be careful if the Pluto-Mercury energy overflows into relationship. You may want to put off important conversations with loved ones until the intensity fades a bit, even if you’ve made decisions that will (eventually) need to be communicated. At 12:41am tomorrow, the Moon enters Libra and flows with Saturn in his own sign. Overnight is a good time to focus, study, and handle Read more…

Lunar Mansion 14

Tomorrow, January 4 at 2:22 am the Moon enters Mansion 14 (Al-Simak, “The Unarmed”), covering the end of Virgo. Associated image for magic: a dog holding his own tail in his mouth Beneficial actions: take or give medicine (for example, to begin a regimen), travel by water, cultivate allies, break up a romantic relationships or other damaging associations

Astrological Almanac for Sunday, January 3, 2021

Today through Tuesday we’ll feel Mercury’s conjunction to Pluto as the intensity of words, thoughts, and communications increase, maybe dramatically. This is the week to write your manifesto. Or your last will perhaps. The Moon flows with Uranus early today, trying to stir things up a bit, especially in areas that don’t want to be stirred up. Tonight she flows with the Sun, allowing us to focus more on being responsible. Before dawn, the Moon opposes Neptune, possibly triggering weird dreams. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, January 2, 2021

The Moon trines Mars this afternoon in fire signs, adding a good boost of energy after we stayed up all night on Thursday in our living rooms to kick 2020 out the door. It’s the only aspect, so we’ll feel it building without much interference. At 8:12pm, Luna enters Virgo, which is perfect for making ridiculous New Year resolutions. Right now our intentions are good and we can make a plan. But as usual, that will fade. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Friday, January 1, 2021

Artist alert! As we wake up this morning, the Moon is trining Venus in fire signs, while Mercury is exactly flowing with Neptune. Get to it! Be creative! Make art, make music! That’s the only lunar aspect for the day, but Mercury-Neptune will last, so though the Moon aspect is early, try to ride the wave. Happy New Year! May the sh** show that was 2020 be gone! #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

2020 Year in Review

Well, we’ve made it. At least most of us have. Astrologers knew well ahead of time that 2020 would be a challenging year, and many of them said that it would look better “in the rearview mirror.” I’m not sure that it will actually look better than it was, but it will certainly be a relief to leave it behind. Many folks point out that the Gregorian Calendar New Year is pretty arbitrary, and that nothing magical happens when January 1 rolls around to change the energy. Generally speaking, that’s true. But the end of 2020 sees a number of Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, December 31, 2020

The background influence all day today and tomorrow is Mercury cooperating with Neptune to dream up some amazing fantasy and non-reality. Just make sure that you’re clear what’s real and what isn’t. Early this morning, the Moon squares Mars, both from their own signs. This is likely to add a note of confrontation to the first part of the day, especially if we are debating emotional or personal issues. Just before 2pm, Luna moves into Leo, where she encourages us to show our emotions rather than be alone with them. But later she opposes Saturn then Jupiter, which could point Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, December 30, 2020

The Moon opposes Mercury this morning, then trines Neptune this afternoon. Communications could have a tenuous bearing to reality today, but for shifting reasons. First, wording might be hard for the first part of the day. Misunderstandings and glitches may predominate. Think typical Mercury retrograde stuff. Later, the urge to engage in fantasy and possibly untruthfulness grows stronger. This is great for creativity, but also allows for smoke-and-mirrors tactics. So be aware of your verbal interactions with others and be intentional, while paying close attention to what they say, too. Tonight we have an urge to confront authority, but without Read more…
