This week kicks off with an inspiring energy from authoritative Saturn, who is currently in pragmatic Capricorn, and dreamy Neptune, who is splashing around in imaginative Pisces, on January 31st, encouraging our innermost visions to take flight in reality. The following day may cause frustrations to rise from within, as warrior planet Mars, who is roaming in fiery Aries, and evolutionary Pluto, who is transiting through ambitious Capricorn, square off, causing havoc in the stars. When Mars and Pluto collide, we can expect major power struggles to arise in relationships, as the need for control and dominance prevails. On a higher vibration, these two planets can guide us all towards transformation—with momentary annoyances along the way.
Planet of love and money, Venus, is very busy this week. Before Venus enters Capricorn on the 3rd, she still has some work to do in wild Sagittarius. First, inciting change by softly connecting with Uranus, who is raging in the sign of impulsive Aries, on February 2nd. Then, sharing a frustrating aspect with healing asteroid Chiron, who is in sensitive Pisces, on the 3rd, before switching signs and entering practical Capricorn, allowing us to see our worth both fiscally and romantically.
Mercury, who is intellectualizing in humane Aquarius, and Jupiter, who is traveling through worldly Sagittarius. meet up in the cosmos on the 3rd, opening our minds and encouraging us to think objectively. Thinking outside the box and using visualization skills will help us continue to manifest the dreams we started to build on January 31st. We will all think about how we can contribute to society on the 3rd, as we join hands, uniting together to implement growth on Earth through social and political endeavors. United we will stand; we are stronger together.
The week ends with a lovely New Moon on February 4th in humanitarian Aquarius. This New Moon is a wonderful time to connect to a higher power, as it will urge us all to take on a new spiritual stance and embrace philosophical understanding of life. The New Moon is our cosmic wake up call to move in a new direction, away from old views we discarded during the lunar eclipse in January.
We are evolving at rampant speed this week, detoxing ourselves of negativity by opening our world to new possibilities and hopes, under the Aquarius New Moon! Let’s all fill our chalice up with amethyst infused water to heal the mind, allowing spiritual alignment, clarity, and positivity to manifest in ourselves. Let’s toast to the future!

May 21-June 21
Boundaries may be pushed on January 31st and February 1st, as a peer makes a slight jab, crushing your ego. While you may shrug off the issue at first, the 2nd creates a discourse in your mind regarding the situation at hand, allowing you to replay the scenario and reassess the matter. You may even feel emotionally conflicted, as both twins weigh in on the issue causing you to feel ambivalent, leaving you stuck and unable to make a decision either way. One thing is certain, your emotions run deep this week and you feel slightly blindsided by the inappropriate comments from others—especially those you have trusted. Try a simple protection spell this week from those who cause distress and harm, until you decide which avenue you wish to pursue in these friendships and situations.

You are able to get to the bottom of the situation swiftly, by connecting to the astral plane on the 1st, allowing you both to make-up, rather than break-up on the 3rd. With Mars roaming through your house of the occult and transformation until the 14th of February, you are extra powerful.

Your passions run high this week, so use the energy for good.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
While you may be seeking peace, love, and, harmony—this week causes internal struggles to produce much unnecessary stress.

Conversely, you may be the recipient of master puppeteering, making your scales feel slighted and tipped. The lesson to be learned this week is to express your feelings as you have them.

You will also learn to let go of fear you may have in speaking your mind. The New Moon on the 4th gives you the confidence to be assertive within relationships and speak your truest, most authentic feelings.

Your stingers will come out February 1st, when your planetary ruler, Mars, squares off with Pluto. You may act slightly defensive, as a result of innocent jokes pointed your way. Let the naysayers know who’s boss by taking a step away from the argument and not engaging with others who do not understand your visions.

This week gives you a chance to take a new approach to old situations. The 31st sets off a spiritual journey within yourself, forcing you to evaluate your goals. You are pressed to walk a fine line between dreams and reason on the 1st, when Mars and Pluto fight in the cosmos, followed by Mars exciting your planetary ruler, Jupiter on the 2nd. All of this intense action would have made the younger, less astute version of yourself run for the hills and hide. But, you’re transforming, lovely archer! Instead of avoiding problems, or taking out your arrows, you choose to talk about your concerns in a calm matter on the 3rd. Your sparky and fiery nature is still hot to the touch, however, with a softer edge due to the New Moon. Your new method in communicating and expressing your innermost wishes will not only shock the world, but also have a surprising affect on the way you feel about yourself.

February 1st brings former insecurities out of the depths of your subconscious, causing you to question yourself and abilities. You may project such issues on to others, as a result of your own frustrations. The 3rd brings an opportunity to mend your soul, as healing asteroid Chiron inspires you to take a leap of faith and believe in yourself. Your once empty cup, is now filled with the greatest love of all—self love. Although, your peers may challenge and test your patience on the 3rd, you won’t let them bring you down. Your newly revived sense of self won’t allow you to submit to the whims and anxieties of others. You will raise your cup high and praise yourself, then fly away on the 3rd, into your den of inner indulgences, gracing yourself with extra self-care and love. The New Moon will help you ignite the passion and fire burning within yourself, forcing your visions and confidence to be set free, revising your faith in yourself. Even if others do not believe in you, at least you believe in you. That’s all that matters.
Feb. 19-March 2
This week will leave you feeling like a fish out of water, causing you to withdraw from external forces and into your fantasy world. January 31st and February 1st open your dreamy eyes to reality, forcing you to see others for who they truly are. The stern attitude of the collective may feel austere and critical, not warranting your energy or engagement. Simply put, you realize this week that you deserve better. You would rather swim away and enjoy your magical world than deal with those who aim to wound. While you may find the parallel universe you swim in enchanting, the 3rd anchors you into reality. The New Moon gives you extra time to heal and focus on yourself, as you review and plot your next steps. Even though you may be out of the grid for the days following the New Moon, your time in hibernation is well spent assessing and processing your emotions. This week’s journey ends with you releasing yourself from holding in past hurts, allowing you to heal your heart and spirit.
