January 6: Sun in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces

Amidst a pensive season, we have insight and inspiration


The moon is trine Saturn at 3:07 am, and Pluto at 4:08 a.m.

 The earthy moon makes a strong trine with stern Saturn and Pluto, strengthening the foundations of emotional awareness. Since this is a supportive trine aspect, this connection has harmonious potential, where we could find ourselves working with rather than against our sense of duty and responsibility. These stabilizing earth trine connections happen while most of us are sleeping, which could mean we wake up on Monday morning with some of our perceived challenges feeling more sorted out and integrated after a weekend of self-care and reflection.


The moon enters Gemini at 6:11 p.m.

 By the evening, the earthy, grounded lunar mood shifts into one more speedy, social, and adaptive as the moon enters Gemini. A bit of a buzz returns to our conversations, and our energies spread out in multiple directions. With the moon a few days away from being full there is momentum in our rhythm, heightening activity and even some anxiety. This could reach a kind of fever pitch however when the active moon in curious Gemini comes into perfect polarity with Mars in authenticity-seeking Sagittarius at 11:05 pm. The stage is set for confrontations, showdowns, and flares of brutal honesty.


The sun is sextile Neptune at 10:21 p.m.

 The sun illuminates and focuses pragmatic energies from within Capricorn, and late-night comes into a soft yet, supportive sextile aspect with transcendent Neptune in Pisces. Practicality and illusion blend somehow and our constructive plans are infused with idealism and vision. The sun represents our perceptions and conscious awareness, while Neptune connects us to our unconscious—that oceanic realm of our soul where hidden knowledge lies. This aspect connects our sense of purpose to our intuition, not unlike the hybrid joining of the goat and fishtail in the mythic symbol of Capricorn.
