Daily Astro: February 2, 2017 {On Progress Through Relaxation}

Merry Imbolc! The light returns. The Earth reawakens. This means clarity is ahead. But at the moment, maybe not so much.

It’s midwinter and the first tiny stirrings of spring. And tomorrow is a first quarter moon. It’s a good time to start taking action on something you’d like to accomplish.

But today the moon is void-of-course along with Mercury square Jupiter. If you’re feeling lazy today, welcome to our special club.

Personally, I’m getting the message to let go of plans and fully allow my intuition to guide the day. Interestingly, my intuition is leading me to follow my usual routine, but with a much more relaxed, flexible sense of being.

Especially with that Mercury Jupiter square throwing us all off, this plan make an excellent fallback.

When you’re not sure whether to follow your rationality, or your soul inspirations, always go with the soul. Contrary to popular belief, it’s far more rational than the conscious mind. 

On a side note, my daughter is convinced there’s a ghost in her house. My first thought was, “Oh, I hope there is!”

It could just be the exaggerations and sudden surprises of Mercury squaring Jupiter. Then again, maybe that aspect is influencing my skeptical side.

If you’re encountering relationship issues, or heightened romantic dreams mixed with fears… that would be Venus at the end of Pisces. Keep in mind that things aren’t exactly as they appear.

The Moon moves into Taurus tonight. While its trine to Saturn in Sagittarius holds promise for a productive day, I’m calling lazy indulgence to mark our energies, generally speaking.

Like the first stirrings of spring welcoming Goddess Bridged at Imbolc, we’ll likely accomplish more if we relax and flow, rather than fight it.

Other Planetary Energies

Saturn trine Uranus: Innovative breakthroughs, and authentic changes especially for your career and social structures come easy now.

Saturn square Chiron: You’ll be pushed to grow up! through taking responsibility, practical self-care, staying objective, and releasing the past. Watch for self-punishing behavior.

Uranus Pluto Square: Breaking down behavior patterns and social structures with righteous anger marks this beautiful energy. But it can also create chaos and anxiety…. Let go of the old and the dead.

Jupiter square Pluto: Facing and overcoming your fears with deep insight is a little easier at this time. Just watch for cynicism, narcissism and dwelling on those fears.

Jupiter opposes Uranus: Watch for technology overwhelm or attention deficit disorder. But technology can foster healthy revolutions, as long as it’s in balance.

Jupiter in Libra: We’re evolving and growing this year primarily through relationships and social connections – believe it or not!
