Daily Astro: January 24, 2017 {On The Status Quo And Love Lost}

I could tell right when I woke up that today could be an emotional day, shaking up the status quo, thanks to certain planetary transits whom we shall not name, lest they get a little too much armor-propre.

Being the unashamed emotional Scorpio that I am, I cried for the way things are.

I have to admit I get discouraged at times with the state of the world… until I’m reminded by my guides and higher self that we incarnated into this lifetime exactly for these challenges. This is how we – as souls – grow and evolve.

Still, it’s a good idea to be prepared for what we’re facing. It’s likely going to be emotional upsets, as well as toxic relationship patterns emerging this week from the deep past {past lives?} a la Venus moving toward Chiron.

Astrologist Austin Coppock warns that today could be a rough one. {Astrologist Armand Diaz likens it to grinding gears as they shift.}

About Venus conjunct Chiron, Austin Coppock says this:

“The scars on your heart might itch a bit, and you may be prone to reflect on love lost or denied.”

Just being aware of these atmospheric energies means you can use them to your advantage to heal, and become a more self-empowered, authentic you.

If you read tarot, use your cards to get to the heart of emotional or relationship issues that come up this week. Journaling with strategic questions works great for that too, which I just recently discovered.

The Balsamic and Old Moon this week are perfect opportunities to clear out old self-concepts to make room for the real you, on Friday’s New Moon in Aquarius.

This is exactly what the 4 of Pentacles is about, the tarot card of the day:

There must be a constant letting go of the old, and of perceptions of control, in order to experience the newer and better.

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!
