Up, Down, Turn Around

Are you feeling the sense of impending change and rapid transition in the air? If so, I am not surprised—that is what's happening. Get ready to make some fast changes in direction over the next few days and few weeks.

This is the week of the Aquarius New Moon and Venus stationing direct. Let's take those one at a time. The Aquarius New Moon—the conjunction of the Moon and the Sun in Aquarius—takes place at 4:39 pm Thursday afternoon.

This is a friendly event with a "let's get together" theme. The Moon-Sun conjunction is supported by many other planets, most notably Uranus in Aries. This is a beautiful chart for participation in any kind of group or collective experience while expressing your individuality.

Normally we think of groups of any kind (the posse you hang with, the company you work for, the Rotary Club) of having only limited capacity to embrace individuality. If that's the case, it's not really a group; it's mass consciousness.

You're unlikely to be invited to step out, however—you will need to push the issue and see what happens. If you cannot be yourself, you don't belong there—wherever "there" is.

Then on Friday, Venus stations direct in Capricorn. Venus retrogrades are subtle, and they are interesting. This one has potentially been a review of family history, and a probing into the question of emotional obligation.

Venus has been retrograde since Dec. 21, the first day of Northern Hemisphere winter. This was a rare Venus retrograde, entirely in Capricorn; the last time that happened was the winter of 1802-1803. This event feels like a release and a reminder to keep your mind focused on the present, with the people who are among you.

If a chart ever said "love the one you're with," this is it.

Less than one week later, on February 6, Mercury stations retrograde in Pisces. It will be retrograde for three weeks, ending on Feb. 28. I recently published an article for my subscribers called An Expert's Guide to Mercury Retrograde.

Once Mercury is done being retrograde on February 28, Mars stations retrograde for the next 10 weeks. That is the central event of 2014—and I have covered it in detail in The Mars Effect, which includes readings for all 12 signs and rising signs.

As I said—it will be a busy few days, few weeks and few months. If you're wondering what's going on, check this space, or visit Planet Waves FM.

    It's an excellent time to put out energy into making a change, whether it be starting something new or letting go of the past. In order to help this change, open yourself up to learn something new and also allow yourself the time to understand it.

  • 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.
