Fri­day, Jan. 28: Even though the mood is pos­i­tive, we may want to let off steam as the ad­ven­tur­ous Sagit­tar­ius moon trines Jupiter. Make of­fers this morn­ing. Mid­day, pa­tience evap­o­rates; don’t flail but move with con­scious­ness. Flex­i­bil­ity and for­give­ness re­turn late af­ter­noon for a more up­beat evening. Satur­day, Jan. 29: Break rou­tines and be open to new in­for­ma­tion, even though it shakes pre­con­cep­tions. In­vest in ex­pe­ri­ences as the moon con­juncts Venus this evening. Ro­mance and flir­ta­tion are in the air, but keep a light touch. Sun­day, Jan. 30: Se­ri­ous­ness tints the morn­ing as the moon en­ters Capri­corn and con­juncts Pluto. We can re­act with ru­mi­na­tion, de­ter­mi­na­tion, or ruth­less­ness. Wor­ries can nudge us to be ma­nip­u­la­tive, but that won’t help mat­ters. Mon­day, Jan. 31: We can feel dis­cour­aged but de­ter­mined as the com­pe­tent Capri­corn moon forms mi­nor but draggy as­pects. It’s an im­por­tant time strate­gi­cally; set the agenda and push it for­ward later this week. Peo­ple need their work sup­ported but may not be up to any emo­tional de­mands. Tues­day, Feb. 1: Con­flicts sharpen as Mars and the sun semisquare Uranus; un­ex­pected sparks fly, but we don’t have to let them cause a con­fla­gra­tion. We re­sist re­straint, re­spond im­pul­sively, and can be ac­ci­dent-prone if dis­tracted. Let life be a med­i­ta­tion. The af­ter­noon is more col­lab­o­ra­tive as the moon en­ters Aquar­ius but no more set­tled. Thurs­day, Feb. 3: Nur­ture bud­ding op­ti­mism. Con­di­tions shift in on­go­ing projects and re­la­tion­ships as Mer­cury en­ters Aquar­ius and Venus en­ters Capri­corn. Check for chang­ing sit­u­a­tions and green lights. Wed­nes­day, Feb. 2: Happy Ground­hog Day, the half­way point through win­ter. Our hearts are as un­set­tled as our minds; this can stim­u­late im­prove­ment on this in­ven­tive day but “just OK” will not cut it. Let our hearts be­lieve our goals are pos­si­ble as Venus sex­tiles Nep­tune and squares Uranus. Opin­ions — we’re full of them this week as the sun con­juncts Mars in Aquar­ius. We think we stand on our prin­ci­ples but may stand on our pride in­stead. While the gift of Aquar­ius is hu­man­i­tar­ian con­cern, its shadow side is the cen­ter of our ego.

These opin­ions can spark trou­ble as Mars and the sun also form a mi­nor but in­tensely ir­ri­tat­ing semisquare to elec­tri­cal Uranus. An era of un­rest ap­proaches in the months ahead, and we get the warn­ing tremors now. Last week, free­dom-lov­ing Jupiter en­tered brash Aries and pulled a cork out of the bot­tle that re­leased all sorts of stuck en­ergy. Mo­men­tum builds quickly; great projects get ready to take off, and tense sit­u­a­tions can ex­plode with lit­tle lead time.

No­tice a strange ten­sion and an im­pulse to move. See prob­lems and fix them, but do it wisely. If ten­sion brings on a headache, it helps to brain­storm and vent, prefer­ably on paper or with a friend and not at the tar­get in ques­tion un­til thoughts are sorted.

As the week be­gins, take me­chan­i­cal prob­lems se­ri­ously and wait to buy high-tech gear. Dif­fi­cul­ties bring op­por­tu­ni­ties early next week — if we don’t take ad­van­tage of them, some­one else will.

So­cial life may be up­staged by work early in the week but moves to the fore­ground midweek. Emo­tions shim­mer as Venus sex­tiles Nep­tune and squares Uranus. Our evolv­ing aes­thet­ics make this an ar­tis­ti­cally juicy time.

Dis­con­tent can wig­gle be­tween even well-bonded peo­ple. If we want to strengthen our re­la­tion­ships in­stead of test them un­der these as­pects, we need to get the dis­con­tent out from be­tween us, put it out front, hold hands, and ex­plore to­gether.
