Friday, January 29th: An opportunity to employ the right use of will, power, and desire exists today as Mars sextiles Pluto (14 degrees Pisces to Capricorn). This support mechanism is helpful as you may be adjusting to a romantic or financial challenge, fear or letdown as Venus squares Saturn (from 3 degrees Pisces to Sagittarius). The emotional temperature can feel cool and limiting. On the other hand, this energy may spur you on to handle unfulfilling tasks that simply need to be taken care of. Family members, women, and authority figures may not be in a generous mood. Seeking financial or personal validation is best saved for another day.
Yet, your inward thoughts, development and insights are flowing as the Sun conjuncts Mercury (at 10 degrees Aquarius). A level of insight into your own beliefs and thought processes can bring revelations into your personal motivations. The Moon in communicative Gemini is VOID all day as well, from 4:25 a.m. EST onward. When the Moon is VOID it lacks the emotional energy to initiate new or fresh endeavors, hence, allowing for a day to simply handle what is on your plate and tending to routine tasks and chores is a good decision.
On SATURDAY the Moon enters emotionally protective Cancer a little after 2 a.m. EST. Home, family, food and personal comforts are important now. A time for potentially powerful insights and emerging knowledge is enhanced as Mars conjuncts Chiron the healer, teacher and sage (15 degrees Pisces). Spiritual understandings may more accessibly emerge as you extend wisdom and compassion to others feeling vulnerable or hungry for knowledge. For some, this can manifest as a low energy or illness - where does it hurt and how is it manifesting in your physical body? "How" you apply your will and desires is important - intentions.
On SUNDAY the Moon in Cancer (ruling sign of the US on Superbowl Sunday) goes VOID at 8:37 a.m. for the remainder of the day. The external world quiets down as you connect with the familiar and routine. Moon VOIDS may also bring favored team upsets or downright boredom to the contest. Fantasy, illusion, over indulgence in food, drink and drugs are elevated as Venus conjuncts Neptune. Enjoy but keep an eye on your finances and heart - leave the facts and conclusions for another day. For others, this can expand the creative and spiritual force. Film, music, and artistic pursuits are highly favored and should bode well for Katy Perry's half-time performance.
