Nothing against 2015, but most of the first days of each of this year's calendar months have been fairly challenging and unsettling in terms of the number of discordant solar, lunar and planetary aspects influencing humanity. Most astrologers don't consider the beginning of each month as a key birthing moment for the four weeks that follow. However, in many respects, if the first 24-hour time-period of a month contains a lot of stellar mischief-making, then the days that follow could be more detrimental than otherwise suspected.
As far as today is concerned, the Moon in Leo trines Uranus in Aries (12:29AM) -- suggesting that breakthroughs in higher consciousness abound. This is amplified in a very favorable manner 5 hours later when Mercury trines Uranus via another flowing, 120-degree alignment (6:01AM). Hit the metaphysical books and study advanced subjects to your heart's content. Learn more about holistic healing and alternative medical treatments while Mercury moves on to square shaman-associated Chiron (8:02AM).
Be more productive in your main fields of expertise -- courtesy of an inspirational, 72-degree rapport from the Sun to the Mean Lunar North Node (9:55AM) while the Sun makes a supportive, 60-degree alliance with the largest asteroid Ceres (2:51PM).
Love vibrations increase in frequency and the creative arts look promising in the hours leading up to a 60-degree liaison between the Moon and Venus (7:10PM). Once this Moon-Venus connection is exact, the lunar orb begins a void-of-course uncertainty cycle in Leo that lasts until 2:10AM tomorrow. One rule of thumb about a void Moon is that you can finish old business while putting the kibosh on launching bold, new ventures.
