Hey star-gazers! As we enter the week on the heels of the Aquarius New Moon, it’s important to use the thirty days ahead to rethink our priorities.
This week’s emphasis on reflection, contemplation, nurturing and creativity underscores a need for us to think innovatively and intentionally about how we achieve greater freedom in our lives.
The New Moon that took place on Sunday, January 21, likely felt fresher and more hopeful as all the planets are direct in the sky. Despite the weight of Saturn presiding over this lunation, the Uranian undercurrent offers a significant celestial flow for dreaming a new dream and harnessing intuitive innovation to pursue your heart’s desire.
As we approach the end of the astrological year, the waning days of the Sun’s current cycle become important for laying the groundwork for the year ahead. This is the period that rebelling against the status quo in your life may be met with the most fruitful results. How has playing it safe served you?
This week begins under that theme with a conjunction between Venus and Saturn perfecting on Sunday, January 22, amplifying some degree of necessary sobriety in your personal relationships.
As this transit perfects, you could find yourself contemplating the boundaries that you set with others and questioning whether they reflect a lack of self-worth and self-appreciation.
Alternatively, you may be considering a period of separation from the potential intensity of a certain relationship that could be undermining balance and harmony in your life.
Whichever way you slice it, this could be a heavier Venus transit overall, demanding greater contemplation and reflection from you.
This said, the Vesta-Neptune conjunction, occurring on January 23 in the sign of Pisces, could present a better day for imaginative daydreaming and emotionally fulfilling pursuits. Coupled with the sextile between the Sun in Aquarius and Jupiter in Aries, the days bookending January 24 could invite unbridled optimism, while highlighting opportunities for learning, wisdom, spirituality and self-development.
For anyone seeking to reignite their meditation practice, keen on learning something new, or finding outlets for creative juices, then these energies will be ideal, with dedicated Vesta and wisdom-granting Jupiter activated by transit.
Venus slides into the place of her exaltation — the sign of Pisces — on January 26, potentially augmenting the potency of any desires for creative expression or for deepening emotional bonds.
Venus will enter Pisces with a splash, making this a favourable transit under which intimacy with a partner could transcend emotional barriers.
Alternatively, we could find ourselves reflecting on the ways in which we need greater emotional support or self-care opportunities. This expression of the transit will be emphasized by the Sun’s trine to Ceres in Libra the same day, calling upon us to nurture our vitality through balance, harmony and beauty.
As Venus transits through the sign of Pisces over the next few weeks, this will be a favourable time to commit to relationships or to lose yourself in artistic pursuits. If you’ve been thinking about art classes or about dusting off your oil paints, the next few weeks will be fruitful for nurturing your soul.
