I’ve been thinking a lot about the state of the world today, and I wonder if we are under some form of curse. And no, not something performed by a tricky magician with his own personal motives. Instead, this is something deeper.
Finally, an energy that everyone can enjoy — Mars trine Jupiter.
Mars trine Jupiter is an extremely positive aspect for just about anything. It’s great for business, it’s excellent for starting new projects, resolving legal matters and disputes, competition, and creative endeavors. Traditional astrology describes Mars trine Jupiter as a lucky aspect, but in reality, we are just more aware of opportunities as they are presented to us, and are able to take advantage of them accordingly. Further, Mars trine Jupiter is a fantastic time to put your best self forward or to pursue your agenda.
If you need to take a risk, now is the time to do so.
I would like to see a show of hands of all of my readers that have handled life perfectly, and have not made any mistakes?
And, I don’t expect to see any because that person does not exist.
If that person does exist, please have them email me because I need the scoop on that.
Let’s be frank. We have all, at times, bombed at life. I know, I have. I have done some things that I deeply regret. During those periods of my life, I like many others, have fallen very easily into victim mode and I’ve laid in the sick bed of the ‘my life’ sucks plague and hoped that the world would just move on without me, and hopefully my problems would simply go away – and not by magic, but through osmosis.
I have discovered something rather remarkable as I went through the process of dealing with my own internal issues, and it is kind of a big secret….
Brace yourself! ‘Cause you are going to hit the f’ing floor.
Ready? Are you braced?
After two weeks of rather difficult energies, this one is going to be pretty damn good. Just sayin’
Last week the astrological energies were extremely dense and everyone was influenced by obstacles and frustrations. This week the energy shifts and we are focused on our goals and what inspires them. So, if you have tried and failed in the past, the energy of the week encourages you to try again and the cosmos is providing you with strength, determination, and inspiration.
Venus and Mars will prove to be our greatest planetary partners throughout the week. Venus is located in the education oriented third house and you will be curious about subjects that expand your mindset. This will make communications easier (important during Mercury retrograde) with others. Mars is located in the 1st house in Scorpio and provides us with the pure grit and determination necessary to pursue anything you put your mind to.
The ease of the energy this week does not happen often. Take advantage of it while it’s available. In other words, don’t miss your moment!
Now, on with the forecast….
January 10, 2016
The week starts off with the Moon in productive Capricorn and it’s a great day to work on matters related to your big picture rather than your temporary concerns. Taking a look at your long term goals are recommended because doing so now will likely increase your chances of success with Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, currently moving through fiery Sagittarius.
The Moon makes a couple of lovely aspects through the morning hours – a trine to Jupiter and a conjunction to Mercury. Your mood should be rather optimistic and there will be an urge to help others at this time. Be generous and reach out to those that need you. Additionally, this is a great time to do research, study, and gather information that you can use at a later date.
During the afternoon hours, the Moon will move into social Aquarius. This means that your friends will take center stage and it’s a great time to be social and network. After all, Aquarius loves great ideas, enlightening conversations, and varying opinions. However, later this evening the Moon will square fiery Mars and you could find yourself reacting emotionally to those around you. Avoid situations where arguments could occur.
January 11, 2016
Moon in Aquarius
There are some great astrological features for Monday that are pretty exciting. First of all, the Moon continues to move through social Aquarius. It’s a great day to network with friends and associates or other likeminded individuals. While this energy is active, it’s easier to get your point of view heard and receive assistance from others. Secondly, the Moon makes only positive aspects throughout the day – sextiles to Saturn, Venus, and Uranus. So, business and relationships are favored throughout the day and the sextile to Uranus encourages us to do something exciting and outside our comfort zone. Take advantage of this easy flow of energy, it should prove to be rewarding for you as long as you take advantage of the opportunities.
January 12, 2016
Venus in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries
The Moon will be void of course in Aquarius through most of the day. Avoid making firm decisions or signing documentation at this time – especially with Mercury being retrograde. Later, the Moon will move into emotionally sensitive Pisces, which will mellow things out during the evening hours.
There is one major planetary aspect that occurs on Tuesday – transiting Venus in Sagittarius will trine Uranus in Aries. The combination of these two planets always encourages you to put the humdrum and ordinary aspects of life on a shelf and do something exciting. It urges you to change things up a bit; especially in relationships. If you are currently in a relationship, do something different than your predictable routine, like going to a new movie or trying out a new restaurant. If you are single, try going to a new place to meet others. The main thing is that Venus trine Uranus needs stimulation, so yes, even THAT is on the menu.
January 13, 2016 – January, 2016
Sun in Capricorn trine Jupiter in Virgo
Sun in Capricorn conjunct Mercury in Capricorn
Mercury in Capricorn trine Jupiter in Virgo
I normally don’t put two days together, but it just seemed right to do so in light of the aspects. If you are in business or have tons of projects you are working on, then take advantage of this energy while it’s available because it’s one of the best setups of the year.
The Sun trine Jupiter is one of the most positive aspect combinations you can have. Your outlook on life is extremely positive and you should be able to accomplish anything you put your mind to. You will be able to understand the patterns in your life and make things a great success. The conjunction between the Sun and Mercury allows you to communicate effectively with others.
On Thursday, Mercury forms its own trine with Jupiter. Since Mercury rules commerce, all business activities are favored – especially activities concerning planning and strategy. However, be mindful of Mercury’s retrograde status and take action after Mercury goes direct on January 25th.
On the more personal level, communication with others should be positive and effective. It’s a great day to spend time with friends and associates for conversations and networking activities. Additionally, if you are considering returning to school, now would be a great time to put those plans in motions.
January 15, 2016
Moon in Aries
It’s going to be a lunar day with the Moon spending its first full day in energetic Aries. It’s time to take control of your life and go after your goals. This energy is great if you need to overcome challenged or obstacles that you feel are limiting your growth. The only drawback is that the Moon in Aries can be very self-focused and tends to forget that our actions do effect everyone else around us. We need to try to take them into consideration at this time.
The Moon makes one major aspect – a lovely trine to Saturn in Sagittarius. This combination gives us gumption and the ability to overcome adversity. You will feel mentally strong and able to handle any tough situation. Today will be a great day to resolve situations that may have limited you in the past.
January 16, 2016
Moon in Aries
The Moon will continue its monthly trek through Aries throughout the day. But, the energies are going to be mixed because of squares to Mercury and the Sun. Although the energies are a bit conflicting, the Moon square Mercury needs to discuss its feelings and you may need to get any difficult emotions out in the open – especially in relationships. It’s encouraged not to hold your feelings in because they could easily become toxic. However, the trine to Venus should lighten things up a little and allow agreements and compromise to occur.
See you next week…

Today is an easy astrological news day. The Moon continues to move through mercurial Gemini and it forms only one major aspect a trine to Mercury. Now just in case you have forgotten, Mercury is currently retrograde. Under normal conditions this would be a great day for commerce, communication, and travel, but with Mercury being retrograde this aspect is more useful if we begin to look internally. It’s a great day for reorganizing, reflecting, renovating, and repair. On the business level it is an opportune time to revise your current strategy and modify anything that may not be working for you. The moon will go void at 1:58 PM EST, so put off starting anything new until the Moon moves into Cancer this evening.
Have an INSIGHT filled day!
