At 01:44 AM: Vesta is direct

In the pre-dawn hours, Vesta, the asteroid of sacred devotion, stations direct in Gemini. Vesta started its backspin in the sign of Cancer. It has been in retrograde motion since November 2. Over the past few months, we found that a commitment made to a creative, communicative, or spiritual practice was premature. Although our sincerity in this endeavor was heartfelt, the emotional and intellectual burnout was real. After gathering more information and finding our rhythm, we’re now better prepared to integrate what we’ve learned into our daily lives. 

At 02:46 AM: The sun is square Uranus

Following this, the Aquarius sun squares off with Uranus in Taurus, provoking anxiety. We feel uncertain about our future and disturbed by societal, economic, or ecological dilemmas. Though we are more adaptable under the Aquarius sun, change is never easy, especially when it seems as though our very identity is in flux. This catalytic aspect will inspire a great deal of soul-searching. We must not only negotiate our own angst but we must contend with others’ erratic behavior as well. Keep your chin up amid uncertainty. You are more resilient than you give yourself credit for.
