January 29: The moon is conjunct Chiron, and sextile the sun

Fiery courage and soul healing


The moon enters Aries at 3:51 a.m.


The early morning comes alive with a bold, restless feeling as the sweet and soulful moon in Pisces ignites in the fires of Aries. After a few days of feeling reflective, meditative, and insular, we may feel like it’s time for breaking out into the big world with bold proclamations and spontaneous expressions. The moon is in the first quarter phase, newly gaining light and beginning to ramp up in energy and initiative, that will carry us over the hump of Wednesday into a more decisive end of the week.

The moon is conjunct Chiron at 8:45 a.m.


The impulsive moon in Aries joins Chiron this morning, blending the themes of youthful expression with the healing of the soul. There may be something cathartic in our emotional releases today, a time of clearing the air, and letting go of tensions. Anything we feel we need to say, or even scream right now, must be discharged to make space for healing and renewal to occur. It will be important to balance the profound emotional release we are seeking now with an oath to do no harm. Though we may be facing up to how certain hurts have impacted us in the past, it’s important to not sink into vengeance, as this will only perpetuate the cycle we are trying to break with our courage and honesty.


The moon is sextile the sun at 11:50 p.m.


Looking up into the night sky just before midnight should reveal a beautiful crescent moon, symbolizing the activation of a new lunar cycle, with our intentions for it beginning to clarify and form. It is a kindling of fire and air, stoking inspiration and initiative. The moon is in bold Aries, while the sun is in inquisitive Aquarius, bringing courageous feeling and innovative thought together to open our awareness and insight to unfolding opportunities.
