It’s time to re­view old habits, familiar de­fenses, and pre­con­cep­tions about peo­ple we know and love and re­lease that which no longer fits. We’re paving the way for a new path, but first we need to make room. And if we don’t want to get started on this project, a sud­den change of cir­cum­stance can en­cour­age us to do so.

When one door closes, an­other even­tu­ally opens, but we may spend a few mo­ments in the empty hall­way be­tween the two. The next few weeks have fal­low mo­ments within the busy­ness — take the op­por­tu­nity to rest, catch up, and fill the wells be­fore the very busy spring com­ing up. Some op­por­tu­ni­ties we took ad­van­tage of be­fore may now begin to bear fruit, so con­sider reap­ply­ing for a job or re­sub­mit­ting a script.

Our hearts may be feel­ing un­usu­ally sen­si­tive and imag­i­na­tive, but it can be all too easy to get lost as Venus con­juncts in­tu­itive Nep­tune. To nav­i­gate this con­fu­sion, let’s use our very best re­la­tion­ship skills. Kind­ness and the abil­ity to look for things to ap­pre­ci­ate in one an­other fore­tell hap­pi­ness and sta­bil­ity in a re­la­tion­ship. Now is the time to prac­tice.

This week­end we’re par­tic­u­larly ten­der­hearted and need to nest un­der a do­mes­tic Can­cer moon. Early next week a full moon in Leo brings out our bravado, our en­thu­si­asm, and a ten­dency to dra­ma­tize sit­u­a­tions. Mid­week our en­ergy lev­els may run low, but a prag­matic Virgo moon of­fers an oa­sis of com­pe­tence in a me­an­der­ing few weeks.

Fri­day, Jan. 30: We can talk about work or pol­i­tics but may have a hard time speak­ing about per­sonal things as sen­si­tive Venus squares chal­leng­ing Saturn. Do the right thing, even when oth­ers are ir­ri­tat­ing. Tonight, con­verse and process in­for­ma­tion.

Satur­day, Jan. 31: The morn­ing can be de­light­ful if we drift and nest as the Can­cer moon trines Venus, but it can be re­ally chal­leng­ing if we try to force ef­fi­ciency. Tonight, pur­sue what com­forts and sup­ports core con­nec­tions.

Sun­day, Feb. 1: Old ghosts waft through the back of our dreams this morn­ing as the moon op­poses Pluto. Ac­knowl­edge, and then re­lease, a raft of hopes and fears. Look for imag­i­na­tive magic in aus­pices and in emo­tional or spir­i­tual con­nec­tions as Venus con­juncts Nep­tune.

Mon­day, Feb. 2: We can look to all an­i­mals as sym­bols and sig­nals on this tra­di­tional day for an­i­mal au­gury. The mood is open­hearted un­der a Leo moon. Be self-ap­pre­cia­tive — our ten­der hearts are un­usu­ally sus­cep­ti­ble to doubt and need that cure.

Tues­day, Feb. 3: This full Leo moon calls us to work to­gether — drop the com­pet­i­tive pride and sup­port one an­other. Easy, nat­u­ral ad­just­ments can be made to han­dle re­cent changes in cir­cum­stances. Is­sues around group lead­er­ship can be re­solved. Dance and howl un­der this most so­cia­ble moon tonight.

Wed­nes­day, Feb. 4: It’s easy to hold other peo­ple re­spon­si­ble for our hap­pi­ness but hard to get out of our­selves and re­ally em­pathize. We hate to be ig­nored but re­sist the spot­light. Later, at­ten­tion to prac­ti­cal things can help ease in­ter­per­sonal dis­com­fort un­der an in­dus­tri­ous Virgo moon.

Thurs­day, Feb. 5: A cranky, un­com­fort­able vibe this morn­ing can keep us work-fo­cused but chal­lenges us to keep our hearts open as the moon squares Saturn. Mid­day a lazy or pas­sive-ag­gres­sive streak asks us to me­an­der in in­tu­itive and cre­ative realms; if we try to stay ef­fi­cient we’re prone to ac­ci­dents and mis­un­der­stand­ings. Bal­ance re­turns later.
