Astrological Almanac for Sunday, January 31, 2021

Today and tomorrow, the Sun squares Mars, awakening in some a drive for power and competetiveness. We may see an increase in combativeness and stress. It’s a time to beware accidents and injuries, which can often be prevented by paying more attention to the physical. The Moon opposes Neptune early today, bringing possible confusion and a sense of overwhelm at times, especially regarding emotions. This will probably ease by the end of the day when her trine to Pluto provides a release valve for those feelings, which may come on fast and furious. Night owls will benefit from Luna’s overnight Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Saturday, January 30, 2021

The Moon flows with Uranus and Mars in earth signs this afternoon into the night. This could help our ability to manifest physical things, especially if they’ve already been started. At 10:51 am, Mercury turns retrograde – for the first time in 2021 – until February 21. It will remain in Aquarius the whole time, so Mercury’s debility will be somewhat limited. Look for confusion and oversights related to details, writing, communicating, planning, etc., and take steps to mitigate these, if possible. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Friday, January 29, 2021

A much less active day for transits, though the Moon will approach her opposition to Mercury all day long; so we may feel increasing frustration with our communication abilities today, especially as Mercury is now stationing before turning retrograde tomorrow. At 3:02 tomorrow morning, Luna enters Virgo, increasing our overall need for perfection and for criticism. Beware the perceived need to be too persnickety. #dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon

Astrological Almanac for Thursday, January 28, 2021

Venus reaches Pluto today, intensifying our relationships and feelings about many things. We may find ourselves examining our relationships more deeply than usual, and this may stir up past issues. Those with late cardinal planets (Capricorn, especially, but also Cancer, Aries, and Libra) will feel this most acutely. This is countered somewhat by the Sun’s conjunction to Jupiter today. But it’s likely to affect different folks, since this is in early-mid fixed signs (Aquarius especially, but also Leo and Scorpio, and to a lesser extent Taurus). This provides the impetus for growth and magnanimity. The Moon adds to the agitation Read more…

Astrological Almanac for Wednesday, January 27, 2021

For the first half of the day, the Moon opposes Venus and then Pluto, making relationships of all sorts challenging. There is note of obsession and confusion about emotions around, and we may feel the urge to go overboard in our emotional displays. There may also be an element of secrecy about our connections now, especially as Venus moves toward conjoining Pluto tomorrow. At 9:53pm, Luna enters Leo, where she continues her outward emotional display and actively seeks attention. Overnight she opposes a very strong Saturn, hinting at some emotional or relationship blocks or problems that we may need to Read more…
