Gentle doors open; we can step in to opportunity as our minds and hearts expand this week as Jupiter sextiles Pluto, boosting our confidence and helping us to look for the light on the horizon.
This weekend we want to be part of the global community or the big wide world, but we may feel a bit fed up with our fellow humans nearby. Let the little problems go and bond on the big issues as Venus conjuncts Neptune in Aquarius. Dance in the name of a good cause as art and politics, creativity and spirit weave together.
Our conscience guides us like a shepherding dog early in the week under a challenging sun-Saturn aspect. Sometimes it’s hard to be a grown-up; our years and responsibilities seem to gain weight.
We have work to do midweek; there’s no getting around it. Don’t worry, just get started under the industrious Capricorn moon. Look ahead to see where to go but not so far as to be overwhelmed; just begin and occasionally look back to see how much got done. Later in the week we’re more able to talk about collective action as Mercury enters Aquarius. Friday, Feb. 5: In the morning, we may be cranky and opinionated; humor can help if the jokes aren’t too barbed. Mixed feelings are normal; we may be glad to be alone but hate to be isolated as the surly Scorpio moon battles with extroverted Mars in Leo. Scathing critiques may be more recreational than realistic; let them roll off but look for a valid point underneath. Tonight, enjoy a personal retreat or hang out where the music is so loud that no one needs to talk. Saturday, Feb. 6: It’s a curious, exploratory but rather belligerent morning as the moon squares Venus. Look for serendipitous moments midday as the moon trines Uranus, and feel the mood grow experimental as the moon enters Sagittarius tonight. Climb out of the shell and explore fresh territory as Jupiter sextiles Pluto. Sunday, Feb. 7: Responsibilities nip at our heels as the sun challenges Saturn. Spiritual practice and art heals us; we need bread and roses, beauty as well as food. Our dreams can take us away or give us a goal to work toward, just watch that they don’t confuse us. Monday, Feb. 8: Read body language and actions and note where they differ from words. Actions reveal less-conscious motives while the sun challenges Pluto. Don’t mistake depression for unwillingness at midday. Find out what’s bugging people, and see if they respond to a more hopeful vision. In the evening, a shared moment heals us as the moon sextiles Chiron, Jupiter, and Venus. Tuesday, Feb. 9: Instead of being overwhelmed by the size of the mountain ahead as a responsible Capricorn moon conjuncts Pluto and squares Saturn, let’s get cracking on the one piece we can reach right now. Give people the facts this morning. Honestly encouraging words help, but skip the fluff. This afternoon, use a break to stand back and reevaluate priorities. Wednesday, Feb. 10: Wheel and deal with the best of them as Mercury enters Aquarius. The difference between networking and gossip is intention; choose carefully. Every move is political— work the room, check in with family, contact politicians, and meditate with community. We need to feel like we’re getting somewhere; appreciate every step of progress. Thursday, Feb. 11: If we can clear the decks today, we can wander in the more heart-centered days ahead without dropping the ball. Tie up loose ends this morning under the Capricorn moon and then work the filaments of connection and creative inspiration this afternoon as the moon enters Aquarius while Venus enters Pisces. ◀
