January 10: Dreams and Discernment
The moon is square Neptune at 10:29 a.m., and moon void of course begins
In the late morning, the moon clashes with Neptune, suggesting we temper our expectations. The optimistic Sagittarius moon predisposes us to grand gestures and big feelings, but in square to equally idealistic Neptune in Pisces, we can place our trust in the wrong people, back the wrong bets, or make foolish judgement calls.
At this time, we can quite literally believe that whatever vision we have invested ourselves in is too big to fail. Disappointments lead to crises of faith, when we might otherwise have spared ourselves grief by exercising a little more discrimination. This tricky transit can be navigated by spending the afternoon solo, exploring nature, or experimenting through creative and artistic mediums.
The disenchantment this influence produces can actually inspire those who are skeptical of the interconnectedness of humanity to seek out deeper spiritual meaning, and so we might also use this opportunity to learn about foreign religious perspectives. However, be wary of attaching yourself to guru figures. The moon begins its void of course following this aspect, so it’s best to stay open to absorbing teachings without seeking a defined answer or aligning yourself with a cause or movement.
The sun is trine Vesta at 6:27 p.m.
In the evening, the Capricorn sun forms an inspiring trine with Vesta in Virgo, helping us pursue our heart’s desires. Sun-Vesta combinations stimulate manifestation magic and propel us towards our destiny, making this an excellent influence to take measured risks. It promotes sustainability and success through the creation of refined schedules and routines.
If we have been afraid to take a leap into self-employment, a different career path, or receiving new education or training, this transit will make the jump seem far less scary by reminding us of the available rewards. Money, skills, and growth opportunities are up for grabs, but finding the courage within ourselves to follow our own star is perhaps the best prize.
