Hello dear Friends,
A lot has been changing behind the scenes, as in the skies and I’m sure in your lives. I’ll have more to say after the Aquarius New Moon — but wanted to bring you a few updates and quickly check in with the astrology.
I have some happy news and some sad news. First the happy news — I’ve written your February Travel Horoscopes for Conde Nast Traveller India. Read yours here — and I hope you enjoy them!!
Sad news is Format Magazine decided to discontinue the Weekly Horoscopes since they weren’t getting enough traffic to the page — so there will be no Weekly Horoscopes this week. If you enjoyed them, I would ask you to please write to the editor lydia-at-format.com to tell her you enjoyed them and please spend a few minutes browsing Format Magazine — it’s treasure trove for Creatives.
(I haven’t yet decided what I will be doing with the weeklies — but please check back in after the New Moon next week for further updates.)
Now for the astrology — As I write this the Scorpio Moon is moving to a sextile to Jupiter on Monday evening, after it which goes Void Of Course until Tuesday when it enters Sagittarius.
We’re now past the Last Quarter of the Moon, moving to the Aquarius New Moon and Chinese New Year on Feb. 8, 2016. We have a fairly busy week coming up with lot of plenty of aspects between major planets. Mars sextiles Pluto, Mercury sextiles Chiron and the Sun sextiles Saturn, on Wednesday on Feb. 3, 2016 bringing release, healing and a sense of stabilizing amidst the change.
The energy peaks again as we get to the weekend: Venus conjuncts Pluto on Feb. 5 and squares Uranus on Feb. 6, 2016 among a cluster of other major aspects; including but not only Mercury’s trine to Jupiter on Feb. 6, 2016 and the Sun’s square to Mars on Feb. 7, 2016. Expect this to be a busy weekend bringing major shifts and putting us through the ring of fire in relationships, financial situations, and all matters related to the heart — so we can be transformed.
Also, Mars is in Scorpio now, and enters shadow phase on Feb. 17, 2016 gearing up towards it’s retrograde station on Apr. 17, 2016. After the past two years of the Saturn in Scorpio transit, with Mars in Scorpio, there’s a sense that something within you or your life, that seemed to be dead and gone, is resurrecting and coming back to life. You’ve learned important lessons over the period of Saturn’s transit — move in awareness of those lessons.
I’ll be sending out the Weekly Astrology weather report to subscribers a little later tonight or tomorrow, with a detailed interpretation of all the major aspects this week. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, in your life and the lives of those around you, these are no small changes unfolding; and even the small changes seem to have larger than life implications. If you want to receive the full report in your mail, sign up here for a One Week Free trial to the service.
I’ll be back with an excerpt from the report tomorrow — so do check back in. For now as you move through this week, remember: we’re at the end of a cycle before we begin a new one. This is a period of deep release, clearing, and letting go, before you can be liberated.
