Aries 

For January 2012

This year is about precision. You’ve been feeling this calling for a while, in particular since your ruling planet Mars entered Virgo this past autumn. Your quest may extend to your mental and physical health, your work, and many other factors in your environment. You may apply this as a drive for impeccability, integrity, or even perfection. The problem is that humans are not creatures of precision; we are works in progress. Mars stationing retrograde in Virgo is cautioning you against taking overbearing positions with yourself: pushing yourself too hard, or trying to solve all your problems at once. You would best be served by an approach that works in layers. It’s a little like housecleaning—you sweep before you mop; getting the dishes out of the way is always a good start; you wash, dry, and fold in order. I suggest you take that approach to personal improvement. Meanwhile, beware of overemphasis on the past. You may encounter old issues that are calling for focus. While you’re doing that I suggest you adapt a “clean as you go” approach with present-moment subject matter. Keep your current relationships, enterprises, and work patterns as clear as you can. Proceed carefully and even a bit meticulously, so that you avoid creating new problems. Yet most of all, recognize that shifting your mental outlook will shift the way the world appears to you. If the world looks broken, consider whether that’s how you feel. And remember that your ultimate goal is wholeness rather than perfection.

  • Calling In the Capricorn Full Moon
  • Calling In the Capricorn Full Moon

    The astrological setup is that the Sun in Cancer will oppose the Moon in Capricorn, exact just before 12:07am EDT on July 9. The Moon will be precisely one degree away from a conjunction to Pluto. The Sun and Moon are both making their way to square Uranus and Eris in Aries, though the Moon will make its square later the same day.
