Last week’s

Mer­cury-Pluto con­junc­tion wanted us to thought­fully re­con­sider our pur­pose, look deeper at some co­nun­drum in our life, or re­assess how we com­mu­ni­cated. This week we need to take that new un­der­stand­ing and act on it as the sun con­juncts swash­buck­ling Mars. Mars wants ac­tion and doesn’t care about thought­ful­ness. The sun and Mars con­junct as Jupiter en­ters Mars-ruled Aries, in­ject­ing a free­dom-lov­ing, au­then­tic, and spon­ta­neous en­ergy.

Of course, if you have five peo­ple in a room who say they want ac­tion, chances are they all want some­thing dif­fer­ent. To use this sun-Mars con­junc­tion well, we have to pull to­gether and take an idea and make it hap­pen. Al­though this as­pect can get the party started on sweep­ing in­ter­na­tional changes, our revo­lu­tion can be small and per­sonal.

As the week­end be­gins, tend to chores that make cre­ativ­ity pos­si­ble. Early next week, we can revel in our con­nec­tions; growth re­quires al­lies along the way. Ex­cit­ing in­ter­ac­tions may dis­tract us, but let’s stay on track with im­por­tant long-term projects.

Midweek, as the moon en­ters Scor­pio, we may get tired of be­ing nice and need to know we are loved even if we’re dif­fi­cult. A snarky, ma­nip­u­la­tive en­ergy kicks in if we’ve ig­nored any needs or pri­mor­dial feel­ings. Some peo­ple will an­noy us just be­cause they can. Some work projects may be put on hold as Saturn ret­ro­grades and squares Mer­cury, but the de­lays help us re­fine the work.

Fri­day, Jan. 21:

Progress is de­railed if egos act up as the Leo moon op­poses Nep­tune, but we can get past this if we fo­cus on com­mon goals. Get friendly this morn­ing and ef­fi­cient this af­ter­noon as the moon en­ters Virgo. Tonight, avoid judg­men­tal streaks and heal one an­other.

Satur­day, Jan. 22:

Healthy free­dom: that’s what we search for as Jupiter en­ters Aries un­der a Virgo moon. Well-han­dled de­tails pro­vide a beau­ti­ful frame­work for cre­ative growth. Tonight, man­age doubts as Mer­cury semisquares Nep­tune. Imag­ine what it would look like if ev­ery­thing did turn out for the best.

Sun­day, Jan. 23:

It’s a day of good tran­si­tions. We can talk about duty that frees us and lets us love as Venus sex­tiles Saturn. Take a re­strained but car­ing ap­proach. Plans need im­pro­vi­sa­tion mid­day as the moon op­poses Uranus. Tonight, share the warmth as the moon en­ters Li­bra and trines the sun.

Mon­day, Jan. 24:

Don’t look at the sum to­tal of work — it can feel over­whelm­ing. Be­gin with peo­ple-ori­ented chores. Loss or sad­ness mid­day needs to be re­framed; honor what has left and look at what is just ar­riv­ing. Tonight, rest is the high­est pri­or­ity as the moon con­juncts Saturn.

Tues­day, Jan. 25:

This morn­ing, there are op­ti­mistic if un­re­al­is­tic mo­ments. Catch up with ne­glected friend­ships, re­turn fa­vors, and do just enough prac­ti­cal things to keep the flow go­ing. The mood switches tonight; pri­mal needs and con­trary at­ti­tudes need ex­pres­sion, but we don’t have to be mean as the moon en­ters Scor­pio.

There is a grumpy fo­cus to­day; let peo­ple do what they need and don’t take rude­ness per­son­ally. If dis­cour­aged, re­turn to what worked in the past. Glitches in our com­mu­ni­ca­tion help us fig­ure out new forms as Mer­cury squares Saturn.

Thurs­day, Jan. 27:

Wed­nes­day, Jan. 26:

It’s an un­set­tled day. Peo­ple may not be able to con­nect. This af­ter­noon, fol­low up on a sus­pi­cion, but be will­ing to let go if the ev­i­dence sug­gest it’s false. Laugh­ter re­turns tonight; joke about re­cent se­ri­ous sit­u­a­tions for a bet­ter per­spec­tive.
