January 24: Crossed Wires

January 11, 2021

The moon is square Neptune at 1:36 p.m.


There are no major aspects today until the Gemini moon forms a square to Neptune in Pisces, skewing our intuitive abilities. Blind faith may leave us disappointed by others’ hurtful treatment or harsh words. In trying to defend ourselves, our sentiments come out scrambled, which only adds to the confusion.


The risk at this time is to misunderstand or misinterpret facts, or forget details altogether. We are too focused on remembering the minutiae that we lose track of the full picture. Text messages or other correspondence can become lost or accidentally deleted. If possible, consider meditating or spending time out in nature, away from mundane stressors and distracting technology.



The moon is inconjunct Venus at 4:28 p.m.


Before nightfall, the moon creates an inconjunct to Venus, further amplifying relational conflict. It is rare to feel seen and heard during this aspect. Others may be dealing with their own disturbances and mix-ups, but from our point of view, it seems as though they are intentionally ignoring us or disinterested in what we have to say.


While the moon is in Gemini, we get a lot of satisfaction from sharing ourselves, and when others don’t respond as we hope, our feelings can become hurt, internalizing the belief that we aren’t interesting or fun enough. Luckily, this influence will quickly pass. Remember that others are simply on a different wavelength and try not to take their actions to heart.   



The moon is trine Mercury at 11:17 p.m., and the moon void of course begins


Before midnight, the moon creates a trine to Mercury in Aquarius, shaking us out of our doldrums. Suddenly our wires are uncrossed. Not only that, but we feel liberated and free to express our weirder sentiments, which allows us the ability to connect with exciting strangers with captivating interests. We may make new friends at this time through social media, internet forums, or zoom classes. Following this, the moon begins its void of course, which will last into tomorrow morning.
