January 22: The sun is square Uranus
Steady growth, and solving riddles
The moon is sextile Venus at 5:52 p.m.
By the late afternoon, the cautious and reserved moon in Capricorn comes into a supportive sextile aspect with Venus in Pisces. Here, in her sign of exaltation, Venus lends some sweetness, compassion, and support to this cool and protective moon, and together they create an opportunity for emotional understanding and helpful constructive connections. Matters of love, spirituality, and even creativity are approached with practicality and pragmatism that is not stifling, that instead helps to bring idealistic and imaginal visions down to earth and into manifestation.
The moon is conjunct Jupiter at 6:45 p.m.
Later on, an interesting aspect occurs between the moon and Jupiter in Capricorn. It’s of note because the moon is in detriment, and Jupiter is in its fall in the stoic Goat’s sign, adding some limitations, reserve, and caution to both of these planets’ typically nurturing and expansive forces. This could be steadying, stabilizing and constructive, or it could add a bit too much seriousness, pensiveness, and sadness to the evening that is fortunately fleeting. This aspect reminds us to approach our growth and expansion with some important realism, and patience. Our dreams come true not only with hope but also with little daily acts of discipline.
The sun is square Uranus at 10:54 p.m.
The radical, eccentric Aquarius sun comes into a square with Uranus in Taurus late tonight, adding an edge and angst to the mood of the moment. Aquarius is fixed air, and Taurus is fixed earth, so these zodiacal energies are potentially equally stubborn and uncompromising in their own way. To take action, and channel our energy and perceptions, we need to solve a riddle of sorts when learning how to collaborate with and ultimately adapt to the current forces of material change.
