January 28 - February 3, 2024

How we relate to other people is one of the most integral and meaningful parts of life. This week allows us to focus on relating and shows us how valuable it is to incorporate other people into our life, despite our tendency to feel like, and want to, do so much alone. Humbling ourselves, recognizing the integrity of others, and allowing ourselves to let go of whatever control we feel is necessary to succeed can help open up doors we had not noticed or expected before. May we all get along and make things work better for the betterment of all!

Moon in Virgo trine Jupiter in Taurus

Mars in Capricorn square Moon’s nodes

Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus

Venus in Capricorn trine Jupiter in Taurus

 

Aside from Mars squaring Moon’s nodes today, we find ourselves in the midst of grounding harmonies that reinforce the importance of our worth in our professions and our personal lives. These are personal planets aspecting outer, more social and transpersonal planets, which allows for the decompression of any stress and anxiety we have been experiencing related to our standing in society and our professional reputation.

 

It has been said that what does not kill us makes us stronger. While this is arguably false in some contexts, the gist of its implications can be applied to the value of today’s multitude of trine aspects. These aspects often act as a release of pressure that has built up over time, which is usually welcomed in our typically stressful and busy lives. But such a release of pressure can sometimes open up the sluice gates of our grievances, making us (or others) feel entitled to unload them all at once upon whoever is close by, creating overwhelming and uncalled-for chaos.

 

Today offers a wonderful sense of accomplishment in our field of study and work. We can see the progress we have made, we can feel proud of that progress, and this can refuel our passions to continue pursuing our dreams and inspirations. If ever we needed a pat on the back, a heartwarming compliment, or outward gratitude for the fine work we are doing for others, today can bless us with such possibilities. Just remember that we are all doing the best we can, even if we can do better moving forward. All good things in all good time.

Moon in Virgo trine Mars and Mercury in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus

Moon in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces

Mars in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus

 

There is a continuation of harmonious waves rolling in and out of our day today. The Virgo Moon promises a substantial level of acuity and keen discernment early in the day, allowing us to recognize the intrinsic values that shape our efforts to achieve the accolades of our calling. We are striving to master what we believe in, what we are fascinated by, and what we want to share with others, taking what we have learned and witnessed and stepping it up a few notches to make the world a better place.

 

We may face opposition or distraction from less motivated individuals or our own detrimental behavior patterns, but we can try instead to recognize these possibilities as lessons in focus, determination, and organization. There is a steadfast capacity for control and functionality during a Virgo Moon, but when it opposes Neptune in Pisces we can notice exactly what triggers confusion, chaos, disarray, and distraction. So, while we can delight in the harmonies and relish our progress, we must always be vigilant of what causes us to drift off into the nethers of Neverland. Wrapping our heads around the tides of our mental acumen helps us better understand our behavior patterns, including the whispers that call us toward the poetic subtleties of life, which are not without enormous value in any climate.

Moon in Libra square Venus in Capricorn

 

Moon ingresses Libra today, reminding us of the value of other people in our lives. So often we try to convince ourselves that we can single-handedly take care of any myriad things that need to be accomplished, forgetting that asking for help could expedite and even improve the results. This is the medicine of Libra. Quite simply, when we work with others, we increase the potential for achievement and impact upon our world.

 

It is quite likely that something or someone will remind us today that we do not have to go it alone. This could unravel as a frustrating tizzy while we are adamantly refusing to allow someone else to help us in some way or another. We might be so absorbed in our ego that we want to achieve something in our career without anyone else’s help that we fail or miss the mark. This can then fly back in our faces as recognition that we did not honor the value of someone else’s virtues enough to swallow our own pride. We must remember that we can achieve great things when we work together.

Moon in Libra opposite Chiron in Aries

Moon in Libra square Mars in Capricorn

 

Today we continue learning the valuable lesson of allowing ourselves to work with others and to trust their integrity. While our mastery is ours alone, it is never achieved without a mentor or someone exhibiting attributes we strive to emulate. Teachers do not just teach and students do not just learn. Teachers are students and students are teachers. The world seems to insist this process is hierarchal, but it is not. We all will forever remain both students and teachers.

 

Our relationships could experience a jolt if we are not privy to the value of partnership and how that partnership can further our advances in our career or whatever we are trying to accomplish. Boundaries could get crossed today, our reputation could face scrutiny, or our sense of control and independence could vanish in the haze. We need to sincerely pause to notice how valuable those we love are to us. We need to support, uplift, and empower those we love if we are to expect the same from them. While this is not always reciprocal, our selflessness will teach us and them so much if we keep our aim true.

Moon in Libra square Mercury in Capricorn

Moon in Scorpio square Pluto in Aquarius

 

We are once again faced with recognizing how to work with others better, but today we especially are focused on how to better communicate our needs and goals. We all have boundaries, principles, and some level of desire for recognition, but those we work with and those we love do not always know exactly what those boundaries or principles are if we do not voice them. It would behoove us to set aside our fear of backlash and face the task of sharing what those are. Even if this initially creates some agonizing reactions, they have made their way out into the open and into their earholes for further processing.

 

That processing can proceed much more effectively and efficiently if the lines have been drawn, the goals have been communicated, and the walls have come down. Imagine how much more progress can be made once all of these challenging tasks have been achieved first? Sure, the tension and side-eyes may linger for a little while, but nothing good comes easy, and setting the record straight off the bat has much more potential to get us where we desire to be than if the fog, distrust, and ignorance remains. Tell it like it is!

Moon in Scorpio opposite Jupiter in Taurus

Third Quarter Moon in Scorpio

 

We are shifting into the more obscure reaches of our psyches today, trying to understand what keeps our ambitions ticking and swimming. On one hand our inspiration envelopes us, while on the other hand we lose sight of inspiration and fall into crevasses of self-pity and self-loathing. This whirlwind of emotional chaos is likely not new to most of us, and how we handle it is yet another challenge we must endure and figure out.

 

Allowing ourselves to step back and zoom out from the monotony of the daily grind can do wonders for our psyches and souls, but only if we have some inkling of what to look for when doing so. First and foremost, it is critical to understand with crystal clarity the inevitability of our days being sometimes relaxing and joyful, sometimes frustrating and agonizing, sometimes scary and wracked with anxiety, and sometimes extremely productive and rewarding. It is nearly impossible to live a life filled with only joyful and rewarding days. It is also nearly impossible to live a life filled with only agony and defeat. We must understand the ebb and flow of these amplified subtleties.

 

Once we understand these inevitabilities, we can roll with them more gracefully and with greater maturity and compassion. How we handle our emotional experiences determines our evolutionary growth, so learning to honor the ebb and flow of other people’s emotional experiences, as well as our own, helps develop what we all should be committed to in the long run: compassion. How have we developed this in our lives? Who has shown us how we need to work on it more? This is a valuable lesson that should never be underestimated.

Moon in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus

Moon in Scorpio sextile Mars in Capricorn

Moon in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces

Moon in Scorpio sextile Mercury in Capricorn

 

Continuing our journey through the sacred inner reaches of our psyches sheds light on the value of pragmatism and honesty. While there is indeed value in the more poetic waves of life, we cannot convey or portray our own beauty if we cannot adapt to the inevitable confines of our society and civilization. Such realities can be harsh and demanding, but the rewards are plentiful once we learn how to balance the seemingly two sides of this coin.

 

It would be ideal today to consider the ways we can work closely with others to sustain our means and wherewithal. As mentioned earlier this week, there is power in numbers, and what we can accomplish together is greater than what we can accomplish alone. So, if we look to consider how others can help us achieve our goals we might find valuable resources to do just that.

 

This is also a day in which we can make great strides developing our capacity to create healthier boundaries for ourselves. When others seem to be infiltrating our personal space in ways we do not want them to, we need to study what it is they are doing that makes us feel uncomfortable as well as why it makes us feel uncomfortable. Once we have a better understanding of these things we can move forward drawing those lines in the sand, and today is a good day to consider all of these aspects of healthy boundaries.

 

The deeper waters of Scorpio may be dark and unfathomable, but there is value in such mystery. We are imagining, we are questioning, and we are presuming things about others that often are not true at all. This is where the dark murky waters can threaten our peace of mind and mental clarity. It is imperative that we learn to be more honest, more compassionate, more forgiving, and more communicative with the important people in our life. This involves developing greater awareness and recognition that other people struggle with the same preponderances that we do and that we cannot expect anyone to be already adept at all of these valuable life processes. Therefore, we are all working on ourselves so that our world becomes a happier, healthier, and more livable and lovable place to coexist. May we all go in peace.
