Planetary Illuminations - January 2019

MAJOR JANUARY EVENTS

Eclipses: There are two eclipses in January:  A solar eclipse at the New Moon on January 5th (today!) and a lunar eclipse at the Full Supermoon on January 21st.  (See the details below for more information).  We typically have between 4-6 eclipses every year and they generally bring with them an intensified and highly focused energy that we can utilize for change. 


Jupiter square Neptune: With Jupiter, the planet of abundance and opportunity, in a strong aspect beginning this month to the planet of transcendence and imagination, we may find ourselves lacking the focus and drive to organize our lives and our thoughts.  This planetary cycle demands that we let go of our attachment to what we believe is real and explore ideas that are beyond the limits of practical thought.  This can be blissful and lead to heightened creativity - it can also be confusing or delusional.  Keep your eyes open!

Saturn sextile Neptune:  Fortunately Saturn will get involved towards the end of the month and help us to get our feet back on the ground.  Saturn's practical wisdom can help us to utilize Neptune's creativity and spiritual inspiration in more positive and grounded ways. 

JANUARY DETAILS

The month begins with a powerful solar eclipse. Although it's a partial eclipse astronomically, five planets (including the Sun and Moon) are in the sign of Capricorn.  This is a powerful alignment of grounded energy that we can use to set clear intentions and create a focused plan to bring these intentions to life. 

Uranus, planet of radical change, turns direct on January 6 which means that for the first week of the month this planet is at a virtual standstill in the sky.  Anything can happen!  Uranus is always full of surprises and fresh new ideas.

Venus enters Sagittarius on January 7th, and for the next few weeks we will seek lighter and happier relations with those around us.  That could be somewhat difficult to achieve, especially on the 8th when there could be disagreements and arguments.  

During this second week of January we may find everything around us feeling more muddled under the Jupiter/Neptune square that culminates on the 13th.  Fortunately, on that day we have a Mercury aspect to Saturn which helps us to focus and this will give us the clarity that will likely be needed!

The 14th is a good day for creativity and solving any problems that may have come up during the previous week. This is also a good time to schedule difficult conversations or negotiations.

On the 16th the North Node, the gateway to our future, is activated.  Watch for signals of changes that might need to be made to help you to align more perfectly with your heart's destiny.  

The 17th is a wonderful day for anything involving self-care.  Massage, cooking delicious meals - all will be readily assimilated into the conscious mind. 

The 18th is a big day of small planetary cycles, both harmonious and challenging. We will get along well with others, but our thoughts may be intense and somewhat compulsive. We will readily face our inner demons, and also desire change.  This is a good day for doing some yoga or tai chi to help us to find that internal balance which will help us to assimilate all of these competing energies.

The Sun enter Aquarius on the 20th which helps us to open our brains to new and interesting ideas and patterns, but a minor confusing aspect that day may take a bit of the wind out of our sails.  This is an excellent day for creativity, but our relationships could be a bit confusing that day. 

The second eclipse of the month occurs on January 21st at the Full Moon in Leo.  This is a Supermoon, meaning the Moon is at its closest point to Earth, and its influence is stronger.  Expect to see significant weather and geological events but on a more personal level we will likely find this eclipse to bring the need for a significant personal adjustment.  I will be writing more about this eclipse at Astrological Musings, so stay tuned for that!

At this New Year I am grateful for all of my readers, some of whom have been with me for many years.  I wish you all abundant blessings and the gift of love.
