Daily Astro: January 31, 2017 {On Lightening Up}

I’m seeing the message everywhere today – on the internet, in tarot cards, in chats – lighten up! Yes, there’s a lot to do. Yes, there’s a lot to contemplate. But the best way to handle it all is with self-belief and a light-hearted steez.

Our watery Pisces Moon is still bringing out the cleansing emotional release – bringing to consciousness those raw, honest feelings we’re afraid to face –  before the Moon goes void of course.

The shadow of Venus retrograde is already bringing people from the past back into our lives.

And we can expect aggressive energies this afternoon with a fiery Aries Moon and a Mercury Uranus square.

Watch for blurting things you don’t mean to say, impulsive confrontations… and road rage.

You might want to hold off implementing any new, extreme changes until the planets are in more pleasant aspects. But I’m looking ahead at the forecast, and I’m not sure when that will be!

So, instead…

Channel tense energies into hard work, working out, or filing your taxes? That’s what I need to do today, at least. I need to conjure up some magic to keep a good attitude.

“Only your own thoughts and imagination can obscure your natural state of serenity.” – Jackson Peterson

If your day feels a little dark, teary or anxious, gravitate toward the light and light-heartedness. Relax and let go of high standards and expectations. It’s okay if things aren’t perfect.

And if all else fails, create some art {in honor of Pisces.} Stay away from the hexes!


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!
