Preview Astrology Report for Jan 2017
The New Year begins with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn and Sagittarius through January 8th. That makes the first week of the month excellent for getting in touch with your plan for the coming year. Relationship planets Venus and Mars will be in Pisces most of the month, so there is a gentle tone to start the year. Mark will be recording his annual lecture on Planetary Shifts for 2017. Check back for details.
Quarterly Astrology Forecast: Dec. 2016-Feb. 2017
Planet Earth had a difficult year in 2016, so you will be happy to hear that December gives you needed relief. Ambitious Mars is traveling through idealistic Aquarius until December 19th. At mostly the same time, December 8th through January 3rd, relationship planet Venus is also traveling through Aquarius. This highly friendly combination helps you to socialize during the holiday parties. Aquarius is the kind of energy that shares with people on a first name basis, but keeps it light and friendly. Reconnect with old friends, meet new people, and try out new organizations to complete your year.
The only bump in the road is the communications breakdown cycle known as Mercury Retrograde, December 19-January 8. Although this can be a challenging cycle for holiday travel and rigid schedules, the illusion of Mercury moving backwards in the sky helps you retreat for needed mental relief. Occurring mostly in restructuring Capricorn and the final degrees of optimistic Sagittarius, you can pull back from the world to create a behind the scenes plan for 2017. As with any Mercury retrograde, it is important to allow wiggle room in your neatly laid plans because adaptability is required after Mercury turns direct on January 8th. Allow extra time for flight connections and double check reservations.
A chart cast for Winter Solstice (Dec. 21 at 2:45 AM PST) and the three months that follow includes Mercury retrograde. That means there will be lingering effects of this revising cycle until Spring Equinox in March. Keywords for the next three months are “consolidation and expansion.” The consolidation comes from the Third Quarter Moon at solstice. Darkening moons ask you to look at where you are leaking energy, or simply still trying to do activities or be with people that no longer resonate with you. Saying goodbye to people or activities that need to be finished gives you more power to direct into your passions. And when you are passionate about the activities and people in your life, expansion comes naturally.
This expansion is represented by enthusiastic Jupiter in relationship-oriented Libra pushing innovative Uranus in Aries. Along with a couple other planets in the winter solstice chart you are driven to meet new people and experiment with inventive ideas. There is a high degree of action in the next three months through the signs Aries, Capricorn and Libra. You benefit by opening to a larger circle of groups, friends and organizations, be they personal, philosophical or business in nature. You simply must reach beyond your comfort zone to begin the New Year.
December 25th has an emotional Scorpio moon and numerous connections to loving Venus. The moon is in its quiet void-of-course phase all day, so Christmas is not an ambitious day. It does support relationships and the sharing of deeper level feelings. The two shopping days immediately after Christmas are under the influence of a generous Sagittarius moon. Decide on your budget before purchasing at stores or on the internet as the tendency to overdo is large.
New Year’s Eve has a friendly Aquarius moon. This continues the social theme of December. Aquarius opens to a higher idealistic perspective for you and the world. Write your personal vision quest before going out to celebrations. The only danger to New Year’s Eve is impatient Mars challenging space cadet Neptune. Since Neptune rules drugs and alcohol, and Mars is one of the planets associated with police and mechanical things, give extra space to cars that drive erratically and watch your speed. A positive use of this energy is to bring out your spiritual warrior. The traditional burning bowl ceremony is a perfect release under this fiery, forgiveness combination. You are challenged to take action to create the higher vision you hold for yourself.
The New Year begins with mental Mercury continuing its rethinking retrograde cycle until the 8th. New Year’s Day is excellent for writing in your journal. It’s OK to make your aspirations big because there is plenty of time to revise them come spring. Assertive Mars moved into Pisces back on December 19th and stays there until the new moon on January 28th. This combines well with the other relationship planet, Venus, also moving through Pisces January 2nd through February 3rd. Your intuition is heightened at this time, so go on an inner journey beyond the veils of this world to see what messages and missions are ready for you to bring down to earth. There is a theme of Healing and Hope!
January is not without its challenges, but they are mostly the week of January 8th leading up to the Cancer/Capricorn full moon on the 12th. The planets form a pattern called a Grand Cross. It would look like a big cross in the sky if you connected the dots between the action oriented signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Allow extra space in your schedule this week and expect the unexpected. A Grand Cross pulls you apart in four directions and then reintegrates you in a new and better way. Although you feel slightly beat up going through the process, the end result is a better you.
If you had difficulty starting your New Year’s diet and exercise program, take heart by knowing athletic Mars moves through Aries, January 26 though March 9th. Aries likes to move, be it through exercise, dance, yoga, martial arts or whatever you do to get your blood circulation.
February is the most interesting month for this quarterly report. Valentine’s Day is sandwiched between two eclipses. The lunar eclipse in Leo and Aquarius is on February 10th. Full moons tend to pull you apart emotionally, and lunar eclipses amplify the effect. This Leo moon eclipse urges you to look at where your heart is engaged vs. where you are living life in a detached, go-through-the-motions manner. The opportunity is to participate in life in a way that your heart is engaged, yet not get sucked into the drama around you. If you are just going through the motions in life, then this eclipse will push you to make changes, or go into depression (not recommended!) To get a hint about how this eclipse is working, watch people born from 1951-1955 as death & rebirth Pluto in Leo gets activated in their charts. It also activates the charts of anyone born within a week of January and July 15th.
The moon is in Libra for Valentine’s Day. That’s perfect since Libra represents relationships,romance, grace, beauty and luxury. Libra likes nice restaurants, art and jewelry. This is not the zodiac sign to be frugal. It is an enthusiastic day for couples because the life-giving Sun is in harmony with warm and generous Jupiter. It’s best to take advantage of this energy before the evening gets late as emotions wear thin the later it gets. Activities that take place between two eclipses are significant. Be focused and clear, saying what you mean and meaning what you say- no fantasy wishful thinking or false promises.
The solar eclipse is on February 26th in Pisces. This special new moon helps you go beyond the veils of this world to bring forth a higher vision and intuitive insight for your incoming projects. There are numerous planets and asteroids in Pisces now. Make certain you see the world as it is, because it would be very easy to fall into fantasy thinking. While this is excellent for creative activities, it can also see only what it wants to see in relationships and business dealings. Hold the higher vision, but keep your feet on earth!
Overall, this is a great three-month period with only minor challenges. You have the opportunity to release and forgive the past, and do the initial visioning of that which is ready to come into your life next. That seems perfect for the transition into a new year!
Peeking ahead: Relationship planet Venus turns retrograde in March, and that doesn’t happen very often. Your relationships and finances are going to shift. Check out the next issue for details.
