Daily aspects:

– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

We have to adjust our plans and schedule in such way that we can meet our self-interests, knowing that we can’t delay certain things any longer. Once the Moon will make ingress to Cancer will we be striving for nurturance, while seeking to bond and to get the support we need.

Tarot card of the day is The Fool”, referring to unlimited potential, new beginnings, a sense of innocence and naivety. Anything can happen as we start on this journey. We could be taken into unchartered territory and thus need to be aware of the risks and dangers we could encounter, but also need to be ready to take on the opportunities presented to us. This card encourages us to have faith and calls upon us to trust, believe in our spirit and to follow our heart.

We start the day seeking warmth, safety, to bond and to be nurtured. Now that our strategies have proved to be successful, our attitude is getting better. We’re over ourselves and picking ourselves up again. This battle has been won – whether we’ve fought it within or without – and therefore, we make the necessary adjustment conviction-wise in order to be able to manage our circumstances.

Strongly motivated and engaged, we know we will succeed. This is a day to be courageous, entrepreneurial and to reach for our goals. Moreover, we have the ability to control our environment and live our life with intent and vision. It’s important to remain focused on our long-term goals. Opportunities coming our way today have to be navigated with a clear sense of direction and the understanding that we’re the determining factor in this situation and can tackle any challenge.

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 2:08 am EST
– Mercury Rx in Aquarius opposite Juno Rx in Leo and semi-sextile Ceres in Capricorn
– Mars conjunct Chiron in Pisces
– Juno Rx in Leo quincunx Ceres in Capricorn

The mood has shifted overnight. Thus, with the Moon now in Cancer we’re seeking out nurturance and the

warmth and safety of our homes. However, before we could sit down and enjoy ourselves, we had some errands to run, took care of still outstanding obligations, covered our bases and prepared our environment for the event or weekend, which required from us to review and alter our plans. Consequently, a new sub-cycle began today during which we have a chance to get more in tune with the flow of things as well as inspired toward bridging our difficulties and differences, especially when we react to problematic and unresolved issues. Ideally, we’re also motivated to work things out and help each other. On the other hand, we could be more inclined to try avoiding conflict or any action at all or could be continuing to sacrifice hostages and innocents in acts of violence and ignorance to inflict hurt and pain upon others, such as the beheadings carried out by ISIS.

Tarot card of the day is the 4 of Pentacles”, emphasizing a need for practicality and solid foundations, which requires that we learn to control our environment and take command over our life. We want to be in charge over our circumstances, build up our life, hold onto what we achieved so far and also reach for our goals. Therefore, we have to set limits and rules, don’t give in to any weaknesses and create order where it is needed. This card moreover urges us to let go off anxiety and count our blessings. Our situation is not as bad as we fear.

– Venus ingress to Aquarius at 9:48 am EST (until Jan 27)
– Mercury in Capricorn semi-sextile Ceres in Sagittarius
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 8:07 pm EST

After things took a turn yesterday and we had to manage these distractions from our path that kept us from the achievement of our personal ambitions together with the changes to organized matters or setups, we’re even more determined to make progress on all fronts as we start a new sub-cycle today, during which we have a chance to strengthen our personal foundation or life’s structure, to fortify our position, authority or standing and to achieve personal or professional influence and also more control over our circumstances and affairs. This happens in sync with the beginning of a period of greater inner detachment and stimulation, when we feel inspired and also liberated by the way we relate, prioritize and assess and when we reform or change our values and relationships. This requires that we set our mind on developing and increasing our nurturing capabilities and enlisting more support for the realization of our plans. Later in the evening will we seek out the comfort of home and family.

Tarot card of the day is the Queen of Wands”, suggesting that we’re renewing ourselves as we’re summoning our creative energy and approach our life’s situations energetically and confident. We are not afraid of challenges and use our tremendous energy constructively as well as within the scope of our capabilities, which means we’re equipped to be successful and to effectively multi-task.

Daily aspects:
– Moon ingress to Cancer at 12:34 pm EST
– Juno in Leo trine Ceres in Sagittarius
– Mars in Aquarius semi-sextile Vesta in Capricorn
– Ceres in Sagittarius sextile NN in Libra/trine NN in Aries

Support for us and our personal role or purpose we have to fulfill in the grander scheme of things has been growing as the result of more outreaching and teaching and also better connections to or relations with others. As a consequence, cooperation and assistance are more readily available. We feel closer and understood and also acknowledge that we have to take better care of ourselves. Consequently, we’re adjusting our group or social activities accordingly to be able to manage our causes and investments and to strengthen ‘our community’ together with our body, recognizing that it is the temple of our soul. Around noon time after the Moon’s ingress to Cancer will we seek to nurture and pamper ourselves and to bond with others.

Tarot card of the day is The Hermit”, symbolizing a taskmaster, who leads with purpose and wisdom gathered from years of experience. He furthermore represents completion. Thus, we may well have progressed to a new stage of life, but need to remove any difficulties from a current situation in order to truly advance. Therefore, we begin to re-evaluate our goals and might change our overall direction. In recognizing that each of our thoughts and actions is a brick we use to build our lives, we partake in the creation of our own reality. We have to find the light within and allow ourselves to be touched and illuminated by it as well as help to light the way for others. Moreover, there is an emphasis on peace and patience as well as on accepting the limitations of time and age.

– Venus in Scorpio quincunx Eris Rx in Aries
– Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn
– Mercury in Scorpio semi-square Vesta in Sagittarius
– Sun in Scorpio semi-sextile NN in Libra/quincunx SN in Aries

We wake up this morning feeling more nurtured or pampered, but also moody and sentimental. However, with

the start of this new sub-cycle we have a chance to work on the realization of our intentions and to accomplish activities or initiatives we’re tackling through the strengthening of our influence, the use of a constructive approach together with well-organized efforts and by utilizing and mobilizing our power and resources. Of course, the combination of these energies could also lead to stronger resentment and resistance, to extreme harshness, violence, dominance and cruelty, as well as serious struggling and heavy fighting in order to gain the upper hand or maintain the status quo. In any case, a review of our attitude, combativeness and self-interests requires that we adjust our values and priorities accordingly. It is moreover important today to arrange for our future prospects and to focus on the greater cause or investments to be able to deal with deadlines and complex and complicated matters and also to finally move on from a personal situation, where we need to get on top of our affairs.

Tarot card of the day is the 7 of Wands”, suggesting that we’re coming out on top of a situation as things are going well and projects move right along. Thus, we seize the opportunity, are firm and act resolutely as we’re going after what we want. We stand our ground and show determination, even in the face of adversity. Our inner strength and tenacity give us the ability to meet all challenges head-on.

It is especially important today to be aware of our projections on others and to review as yet unmet expectations to be able to employ the right relationship strategies in moments of decision, where we have to re-evaluate, reassess and rearrange in order to accommodate plans and schedules. This could include sacrifices for the common good. Later in the evening will we feel more nurtured and supported and seek to get back into our familiar routines.
