January 15: Venus sextile Uranus

Sociability and insight open awareness


The moon is trine Mercury at 4:12 a.m.

 Early morning, the cool and precise Virgo moon forms a cooperative earth trine with Mercury in Capricorn, bringing emotion and thought into constructive harmony. Mercury rules over Virgo, and with the swift messenger’s planet in this focused and powerful sign, it has a somewhat steadying influence over the Virgo moon, which can induce some anxiety and a need for grounding and order. This aspect provides a perfect moment for understanding and communicating ideas clearly and effectively. It is an excellent opportunity for getting ahead on literary projects and productive planning in the quiet early morning hours.

The moon enters Libra at 7:43 a.m.

 As the morning progresses, the moon moves into Libra, the Venus-ruled air sign of equanimity, peace, and justice. The emotional tone is relaxed, sociable, and conducive to harmonious connections. The mood of the day feels lighthearted, curious, and more outwardly focused after a few days with the analytical and strategic Virgo moon. Venus is exalted in Pisces at the moment, lending an especially compassionate and generous dimension to how we are relating to one another under this beauty and pleasure-seeking moon.


Venus is sextile Uranus at 3:18 p.m.

 The afternoon takes on a pleasurable and creative mood, with both Venus and Uranus forming a cooperative sextile aspect from within Venus’ signs of exaltation and rulership. Venus in Pisces is imaginative, affectionate and caring, while Uranus in Taurus radical and inventive, and the two forces combine to set the stage for romantic, artistic, and inventive breakthroughs. Emotive and sensual, material elemental forces blend in a complementary fashion—most likely bringing pleasant surprises this evening!
