Wednesday, January 21st: Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius at 10:52 a.m. EST (17 degrees) until February 11th. A time is upon you to allow for a re-patterning of your future goals, friendships and personal freedom desires. As the external world quiets down you have the opportunity to embrace your internal dialogue and to figure out how you feel and think on various matters. Think of this process as the proverbial "getting in touch with yourself" cycle. Uranus has now joined Pluto in the effort to bring awareness to your destiny as he opposes the North Node bringing flashes of insight and awareness to your Soul journey and personal course corrections. The Sun is now transiting Aquarius elevating your focus up and out into the realms of the collective and how best to serve. The Moon in Aquarius makes helpful aspects throughout the day to Mercury (conjunction - right brain/left brain), Jupiter (opposition - awareness of faith and opportunity) and finally to Venus at 8:46 p.m. EST (conjunction - warmth and affection).
On THURSDAY the Moon slips into Pisces at 7:49 a.m. EST softening the senses, vulnerabilities and creative daydreams. You are still in what is called the Mercury Storm period when the day to day communications and travel can easily become confused, forgotten, traffic logged and disorienting. An opportunity to be extra diligent in your connections and mobility is recommended.
