We ease into the final week of the Sun’s stay in earthy Capricorn which features the Full Moon in Cancer on Wednesday, Capricorn Venus-Libra Mars square and an exhilarating Mercury in Aquarius sextile to Uranus in Aries. The underlying feeling is one of transitions, dealing with finishing up one set of projects whilst beginning to take a look at starting something new and different. The Sun enters airy Aquarius on Sunday, January 19, bringing a very different lens to view our lives through.
In general Full Moons are when we may get a reality check on the plans we set into motion on a New Moon. Since the Capricorn New Moon on January 1 was super charged, we might need to sit down on the Cancer Full Moon to sort through what is working and what needs to be set aside for now. Saturn in Scorpio is on hand to help us carefully walk through all of this. Saturn is very good at setting priorities by recognizing limitations as well as strengths.
The Venus-Mars square takes place the same day as the Mercury-Uranus sextile. Lover’s quarrels often erupt when the planet of love squares the planet of war. Both Libra and Capricorn are very aware of what is socially acceptable so these disagreements are likely to occur in private. Money and spending habits are potential sources of difficulty. At least the Mercury-Uranus sextile will be there to help us figure out creative ways to apologize and make up.
There is another Mercury aspect on Sunday, an inconjunct between Mercury in Aquarius and Jupiter in Cancer. Be very careful when making your point to avoid over-embellishing the facts. Cancer and Aquarius don’t have much in the way of common ground because Aquarius tends to focus on the collective whilst Cancer’s world revolves around home and family.
My vote for best aspect of the week is the Mercury-Uranus sextile because it is exactly what is needed to plan ahead. Clear sighted and forward thinking Mercury in Aquarius gains exponentially from the connection to Aquarius’s ruler. Write down your best ideas so you won’t forget them.
Aquarius season officially begins on Sunday and we gain a third planet in air for a few weeks. Our mental horizons will have an opportunity to expand once more and air signs will happily go back to theorizing and playing with ideas again. A better balance in the elements is always refreshing.
