The Astrologer Daily: January 22nd, 2014
By Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
The Libra Moon makes stressful aspects to Venus, Jupiter and Pluto today. Trying to find cooperation could be like getting blood from a stone. Everyone seems more preoccupied with their problems. The idea of being helpful to others simply doesn’t occur to friends, family and neighbors. This can be very discouraging. However, being prepared for uncooperative behavior can take the sting out of such encounters. There is a silver lining to this cloud. The Moon is making a powerful trine to Mercury. Finding solutions to our own problems may be easier than usual. Practicing self-sufficiency will yield much more fruit than forcing collaborations. Looking ahead, it could be difficult to get the approval of authority figures. Instead of going above and beyond the call of duty, it may be better to do the bare minimum. The Sun is at 2 degrees Aquarius, the Moon is in Libra, Mercury is in Aquarius, Venus is in Capricorn and Mars is in Libra. With this combination of planetary energies try to: Co-host a cool, elegant event. It’s not about you — or is it? Try not to: Secretly punish your sweetheart when they make you mad. Today’s exact aspects and their keywords are:
- Moon Square Venus: Overindulgent.
- Moon Square Pluto: Power Plays.
- Moon Trine Mercury: Conversation Flows.
- Moon Square Jupiter: Overindulgence.
- Moon Conjunct Mars: Hot to Trot.
- Venus, Jupiter are retrograde.
And finally happy birthday to Diane Lane, Olivia d’Abo and Steve Perry. If you’re celebrating your birthday today, don’t put too much faith in a religious or cultural leader. You’re better off developing your own ideas about faith, art and morality. Fame from writing projects could occur. – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + –
