Astro-Notes on January 5, 2017 – First Quarter Moon

Daily Aspects:
– Juno in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries
– Venus conjunct Pallas in Pisces and both semi-square Pluto in Capricorn
– First Quarter Moon at 15:40 Aries/Capricorn at 11:46 am PST

At this First Quarter Moon, Venus has finally caught up with Pallas in Pisces and now both of them are casting a semi-square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. This means that our preferences and values are now in alignment with our strategies, or in other words, we are feeling more in the flow of things and are thus more receptive to whatever demands are being placed on us, conditions we have to master or circumstances and affairs we have to navigate. However, we have to guard ourselves to not get led astray by distractions, in particular of the day-dreaming kind, while precious time is escaping us.
Therefore, the ‘crisis in action’ that accompanies the waxing Aries’ Moon square to the Capricorn Sun at this point in the Capricorn lunation cycle, challenges us to get our priorities straight and stop procrastinating. Instead, we have to ready ourselves to get down to business and tackle our tasks and obligations in the order they arise. Juno in Sagittarius’ trine to Uranus in Aries indicates that we made progress in the way we relate to others based on successful interactions we established over time. Consequently, as the Sun is approaching his annual conjunction with Pluto we are prepared to step into our power and take control over our life.


Tarot card of the day is the “5 of Pentacles”, which portrays a pilgrimage or a long journey taken as an act of faith or devotion. We may feel that we are struggling in the dark and panick about our situation. However, we can find the inner fortitude to persist in our quest and bolster ourselves, while resisting the temptation to succumb to ‘spiritual poverty’. It’s time to move on and to let us be guided by our soul’s ‘light’ or inner shining star.
