February 10: From the Mind to the Heart

January 29, 2021

Mercury retrograde is square Mars at 4:16 a.m.
The moon is conjunct Saturn at 4:42 a.m.
Before sun-up, Mercury in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus, creating a disconnect in communication. We can be distracted, stubborn, and ill-tempered now, a sentiment that reveals itself in our speech. It is probable that we are not legitimately angry with those around us, but Mercury, which is still in retrograde motion, is creating issues in relaying messages, and our tone can be misconstrued as flat or cold when we are really seeking to be reasonable. Aim not to overcorrect matters by rushing them, as this will create even more fraught conditions.
Shortly following this, the moon aligns with Saturn in Aquarius, which can stimulate isolation and loneliness, as if we are trapped in our own intellectual boxes. Fortunately, we are quite good at getting things done on our own and pacing ourselves now, which could be considered a plus. Only what is missing is a sense of outside appreciation, which would leave us feeling accomplished and proud of our efforts. Instead, we assume no one recognizes we are trying our best. By acknowledging this simple fact—that we need support and are allowed to ask for it when necessary—we will have an easier time managing our relationships with family, bosses, or parents.
The moon is conjunct Venus at 2:11 p.m.
The moon is conjunct Jupiter at 3:29 p.m.
In the afternoon, the moon aligns with Venus in Aquarius, providing an emotional reprieve from events earlier in the day. At this time, the cosmic emphasis shifts from the mind to the heart. Although this is still an interpersonal transit, we don’t expect our words to carry as much weight as demonstrations of our character. We let our attitudes and offerings speak for themselves, aiming to bring our best to each interaction and foster the growth of friendships that feel progressive and enlightening.
Afterwards, the moon conjuncts Jupiter in Aquarius. Our popularity increases, largely because our confidence has returned, and this boost of positive energy makes us magnetic. This is a good time for trying something new, as we are open-hearted and interested in learning lessons that will contribute to our overall spiritual growth. This is a fine influence for taking classes, organizing social gatherings, or entertaining, broadening the scope of the voices that we are connecting with to create a larger pool to pull from in aiding our pursuit of knowledge and self-understanding.
