During the next seven days the Moon travels from Taurus to Leo.
Taurus Monday is a good day for cooking, sewing, gardening, and starting a construction project as well as working on financial issues. Gemini Tuesday, Wednesday our focus is on communications and research. Cancer Thursday, Friday our interests are with home and family. Leo Saturday and Sunday are good days for creative projects and hobbies.
There are three significant planetary events this week. On Wednesday, January 20th the Sun travels into Aquarius. This is the month for friendship, humanitarian concerns, working with groups to save the planet. On January 23rd, Saturday, it’s a Full Moon in Leo. This month we will be juggling community action with our personal needs and wants. Also on January 23rd, Venus travels into Capricorn and we become more practical and pragmatic in love.
In Mayan Astrology* on January 10th the cycle changed to 1 Men, also known as Eagle. This favors self-interest but rash actions usually prove problematic. On January 23, the cycle changes to 1 Lamat, also known as the planet Venus. This is a positive and productive period. Popular leaders make the news. The public is enthusiastic.
There is one long void-of-course Moon periods: From 6:51 PM on Sunday to 7:46 PM on Monday.
Good days for planting are Monday, Thursday, Friday.
Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves. Socrates said an unexamined life is not worth living, and another ancient Greek said, Know thyself. We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.
