This week we see Venus conjunct the sun in Capricorn and Mercury turning retrograde.
Thursday, Jan. 6: Mercury in Capricorn connects with Neptune in Pisces, bringing good fortune and good news to many. It was Jan. 6, 1975, that we first saw “Wheel of Fortune” on TV. Today is also Epiphany, the day the Magi came and met the baby Jesus.
Friday, Jan. 7: A mix of stubborn and generous floats through the cosmos and makes for a mixed bag kind of day. Formula One racing star Lewis Hamilton celebrates birthday #37 today.
Saturday, Jan 8: Today, the sun is conjunct Venus in Capricorn. In the heart of the sun, Venus officially begins a new 18-month cycle. Sun conjunct Venus is a rebirth of the heart. Our heart chakra realigns with the solar plexus. Our values realign with who we truly are. There are parts of ourselves that used to define us in the past – and some of these parts may no longer be relevant and may no longer serve our growth. But there is also a part of us that never changes. And we should not forget about it either, because that’s our essence, who we truly are, behind layers and layers of conditioning. Beginnings of cycles are very powerful, so you really want to take your time to tap into this powerful renewal energy of the sun-Venus conjunction to get crystal clear about who you really are and what it is that you truly want. This is not necessarily a time to make bold movements, to make important decisions, since Venus is still retrograde. This is, however, a time to understand what really matters, what’s truly important. Happy birthday to Elvis Presley and David Bowie, two great musical artists of our time.
Sunday, Jan. 9: Fiery generosity thanks to the moon in impulsive Aries in perfect harmony with Mars in fearless Sagittarius. This is a day to say thanks for the gifts. On Jan. 9, 1839, Louis Daguerre took the first photograph of a man having his shoes shined in Paris.
Monday, Jan. 10: As if Venus together with Jupiter weren’t good news, couple that with a sun/Neptune connection a few hours later and you’ve got a day where dreams can come true. Make a list and dream with confidence. The biggest star in Hollywood, Toronto-born Mary Pickford, divorced Douglas Fairbanks Jr. after 15 years of marriage on Jan. 10, 1936.
Tuesday, Jan 11: Today’s big astrological question: “Which is more powerful, Mars in Sagittarius or Neptune in Pisces.” Neptune should win but a trip across water to study ancient mysteries should make everybody happy. It was Jan. 11, 1922, that insulin was first used to treat 14-year-old Leonard Thompson of Toronto.
Wednesday, Jan. 12: The moon is in Taurus most of today. Late this evening she moves into Gemini. There’s lots going on. Much of it is relaxed. Some of it is stubborn. Some say that Capricorn likes to own and run things. Jeff Bezos, Mr. Amazon, was born on Jan. 12, 1964, and he turns 58 today. What do you get for the man who has it all?
Next week we see Mercury turn retrograde.
