Astro-Notes on January 14, 2013 – entering a new cycle

At the beginning of the day, Mercury in Capricorn squared Eris in Aries and then followed up with a semi-square to Chiron in Pisces and a sesqui-quadrate to retrograde Jupiter in Gemini, which is indicative of an active mentality, trying hard to fight off tiredness as well as discordant noises and messages in order to stay focused to be able to tackle ambitious plans, while working on as yet unfinished tasks that require lots of organization and preparations as well as a review of options available and possibilities that should be taking into consideration. Consequently, after the Moon’s ingress to Pisces at 5:49 am EST, we might have been feeling sleepy, spaced out, confused and highly sensitive or imaginative. With Venus in Capricorn involved in a sextile to Chiron in Pisces and a quincunx to retrograde Jupiter in Gemini, we have a chance to get a grip on our priorities and needs and also to bridge relationship or material issues by adjusting principles we had to review for a better understanding in this context. As Juno meets Pluto in Capricorn in conjunction a new cycle of gradually establishing and consolidating influence in interactions with others begins that has the potential to lead to empowerment.

Tarot card of the day is the “Wheel of Fortune”, indicating that the wheel has turned and we’ve entered a new phase of the cycle. We must accept that things can always turn around; that what goes around comes around. However, in every crisis lies opportunity. It’s not a time to be complacent; instead we have to actively follow this path now and go with the flow.

Personal Note: Although the roads are clean, the snow plough truck and his ‘companion’, the smaller vehicle, both equipped with blue lights and sirens, have been cruising around this part of town, circling the street where my apartment building stands three times – for whatever reason is beyond me. If I wouldn’t have been up already, this would most certainly have woken me up. Typical for the aspects, I found the noises very appalling and intrusive and reacted with anger (the Pisces Moon was in semi-sextile aspect to Pallas in Aries). Other than that, I’m having another busy day when I will try to get as many things accomplished as possible after an early, long shift.
