Astro-Weather: Week of Jan. 19-25, 2011
By Guy Spiro
Wednesday, Jan. 19—Today is full-moon day. It is exact at 3:20 this afternoon. Remember that full moons are always high energy and deserve to be approached with respect. This particular full moon is surrounded by primarily positive energy, as was the previous new moon when seeds were sown. So, this should be one of the more positive full moons we have, but caution is to be advised anyway. Another major energy today, intimately related to the full moon, is high positive energy pure and simple and can be used for almost anything one may be involved in. This is another go-for-it day, remaining mindful of the full moon, inflating anything going on. Do be aware of and work around the short moon void of course period this afternoon running from 3:25 until 4:15, when the moon enters Leo. At that point, the energy will lift and general moods tend to become more intense and concerned with self. Minor energies are a mixed lot, and moods will swing. Choose wisely.
Thursday, Jan. 20—Consider the full moon and all of its attendant energies to remain strongly with us through today and on into tomorrow. Reread the past few days’ forecasts and apply well, making the best possible use of them. The sun enters the fixed-air sign Aquarius at 4:18 this afternoon, and the middle third of the winter season begins. During this time, be making your plans for major projects to be started around the vernal equinox in March, when the spring season begins. Aside from major energy, watch the early to mid-predawn for minor erratic coercive attitudes and the early morning for a brief period of irritability. Moods will swing from the late morning through the evening. Pay positive attention to relationships, and take a disciplined approach while avoiding erratic and exaggerated emotional responses and spaciness. Choices are important.
Friday, Jan. 21—The full moon and related positive energies will tend to linger well into today, at least. Reread the forecasts, and make good use of them at least through the morning. Aside from that, we get a bit of a break from major energy today, bringing the minor energies to the forefront. Watch the mid-predawn for minor coercive irritability, but this should pass quickly, if it’s noticed at all. Minor communication and transportation issues may arrise in the mid- to late-morning, but that should not amount to much, either. Be aware of and work around the moon void of course period this afternoon that runs from 12:57 until 5:10, when the moon enters Virgo. At that point, the energy will lift noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more discerning and concerned with detail. Watch the evening through the late night for more scattered minor irritability. This may not be the most positive social Friday night in history, so choose well if you are out and about.
Saturday, Jan. 22—Be aware of three major energies today. The first indicates a general shift in matters involving religion and philosophy toward a more active mode. It also indicates benefit to be had by taking a more active approach to anything you are involved in. This is Jupiter entering Aries, where it will remain until it enters Taurus June 4. The second sheds light on relationships and aesthetic matters. This energy is very good for initiating positive change and starting new projects along these lines. The third is more cautionary and brings out the space cases. Watch for those overdoing the recreational substances and the otherwise out-of-it. If you see someone who seems a nugget short of a Happy Meal, then that almost certainly is the case. Be especially careful in traffic. Minor energies are a mixed lot, and moods will tend to swing through the day. This is likely to be a very high-energy social Saturday night, but one to deal with carefully. Things can run to extremes, and you don’t want to be on the wrong end of that.
Sunday, Jan. 23—High energy from yesterday, both positive and cautionary, is likely to remain very much with us through today. Reread and apply carefully, making the most of the positive and minimizing the cautionary. Be aware of three more major energies. The first is related to yesterday’s relationship and aesthetic energy, and is very good for making new beginnings in these areas. Make a positive gesture in an appropriate situation. The second is great for the uses of energy and power in subtle ways. See beneath the surface, and gain understanding in the ways things really work. Keep your motives clean, and work behind the scenes to get the right things done. The third is excellent for strengthening and solidifying relationships. Plan something special with someone special. Do be aware of and work around the moon void of course period this afternoon that runs from 2:08 until 5:58, when the moon enters Libra. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more concerned with balance, beauty and fairness. Moods will become more positive following the void of course, and especially through the late night. Enjoy.
Monday, Jan. 24—The high positive energy from yesterday will tend to remain with us through today. Reread the forecast and apply well, making the best possible use of it. Today’s predawn will start out with very good moods, but the late predawn is mixed. The morning is open, but watch the early- to mid-afternoon for minor spaciness. The evening may have a period of irritability and issues with communication and transportation, but this will pass quickly. A disciplined approach will serve best.
Tuesday, Jan. 25—Be aware of two major energies today. The first sheds light on things normally kept secret and under the surface, but not necessarily in a problematic or threatening way. Keep the eyes and ears open as there may be much to learn. You may also benefit from watching the ways and means of authority for clues as to how best to proceed in dealings at that level. The second is rather more cautionary and can be in bad combination with the first. Watch for problems in communication and transportation. Be wary of those falling prey to perceptions of restriction, limitation, lack and frustration. Those foolishly acting out on this can reap harsher and longer-lasting consequences than usual. Don’t be one of them. Be aware of and work around the moon void of course period that runs from 4:03 this afternoon until 8:15 tonight, when the moon enters Scorpio. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more intense and passionate.
