monday january 27th-
at 12:19am the sun in aquarius quincunxes the mean north node in cancer, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the node of destiny and evolution! pay attention to our path of growth and where we may be oriented AWAY from it is key. all month mars, mercury and the sun have made tense aspects to the north node- showing us what is NOT working when it comes to being more intimate with our emotions, honoring of our feelings and honoring of the feminine. if we are too much in our heads or egos- this will pull us out of our hearts! honest self check-ins required today!
venus cojoins neptune at 16’56 pisces at 12:00pm, aligning the lower heart with the Higher heart in beautiful ways. when personal love joins with Divine Love the capacity for off the charts compassion, agape, altruism, forgiveness and kindness is present. this can be uber romantic, idealistic, creative, mystical, artistic and psychic. we just want to make sure we are grounded with good boundaries- as it’s easy to project all our Light onto others and miss their shadow. it’s also easy to see the potential but that potential may not be realized for 10 more years or 10 more lifetimes. so staying in the present and living with an open heart with healthy boundaries is key.
tuesday january 28th-
at 2:34am mars in sagittarius squares neptune in pisces, creating tension between the will and drive and the planet of spirituality, illusion and deception! mars/neptune squares can be tough. on the highest side this is an aspect of a spiritual warrior- someone who takes their ideals and uses there will in service of realizing these idealistic visions. yet the aspect is tense and where mars wants to be direct and forward moving, neptune can make for illusory, confusing and even outright deceptive energies present right now. we need to be aware of dishonesty, denial and delusion- in ourselves, in others and coming towards us from others or the world around us. mars in sadge wants the Truth but with neptune square it’s easy to believe in a lie! watch out for escapism, addiction and spiritual bypassing. be in the pursuit of the Truth, not in pursuit of being right.
venus in pisces semi squares uranus in taurus at 4:46am, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. venus in pisces likes peace, bliss and harmony but uranus is an upstart and can bring chaos or upheaval in Love or money situations. uranus is in the sign of venus so there can also be some sudden and unexpected positive things happening in terms of abundance, inflow of money, expansion of self worth and self value and positive shifts in relationships. the key is to stay open to change and listen to your intuition!
wednesday january 29th-
mars in sagittarius sesquiquadrates uranus in taurus at 7:55am, creating tension between the Will, Warrior and Drive and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. venus and mars just squared on sunday 1/26 and then they both interacted with neptune and now uranus. big changes happening in relationships right now between men and women as well as in other kinds of relationships professional and otherwise. mars is fiery in sadge and can be hubristic and self righteous. we need to temper our fire or accidents and burnt bridges can happen! balance is key.
thursday january 30th-
mercury in aquarius sextiles eris in aries at 12:52am, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos in harmonious ways. this is a great day to take a stand, express Truth and align with what you believe in. mercury in aquarius is visionary and outside of the box and activist eris is ready to take a stand for what she believes to be True! keep your mind open!
at 11:59pm ceres moves out of capricorn and into aquarius, shifting the Great Mother asteroid Goddess out of earthy, grounded, structure-loving capricorn and into airy, changeable, freedom-loving aquarius. where ceres in capricorn was focused on safety, security, tradition, expectation and success- ceres in aquarius is focused on evolution, innovation, awakening and getting rid of tradition! this year we are straddling the fine line between structure and freedom, tradition and the non traditional, the past and the future- not just because of ceres’ shift but because of the saturn/pluto conjunction in traditional capricorn and the jupiter/saturn conjunction (in december) in non traditional aquarius. with ceres in aquarius we’d all do well to show the people we Love that we Love them by giving them freedom to grow, explore and break free from inner and outer limitations!
friday january 31st-
there are no major aspects today
saturday february 1st-
venus in pisces sextiles pluto in capricorn at 11:07pm, aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto can be deep and passionate. we are willing to get more intimate and vulnerable with ourselves and others. it’s time to dive into the deep end of the pool! intensity in Love and money situations is possible but pluto’s harmonious alignment is helping us use that intensity as a means for transformation. a rock becomes a diamond but undergoing intense pressure! in our self-worth, self-Love, values, finances and relationships- we can transform if we are willing to go deep right now!
sunday february 2nd-
mercury at 29 aquarius semisquares jupiter in capricorn at 1:42pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. this can be great for communication, teaching and learning but it can also be over the top and excessive. watch out for gossip, hubris, thinking you know it all. stay open minded and open hearted for the right balance!
have a blessed week!
Divine Harmony is dedicated to communicating with one’s higher Self by way of the celestial realms. Just as the microcosm is contained in the macrocosm and vice-versa – Divine Harmony believes that the stars and planets have connections to the people, places and things that inhabit the earth, and there is a way to find the pattern of communication and connection by divining the stars.
BML (black moon lilith) is being included in the weekly interpretations now. the highest expression of joining these two is symbolized by the high priestess tarot card. she sits between the black and white pillars- the black being the pillar of severity and the white being the pillar of mercy. i use the mean position of BML, which in contrast to the fluctuating motion of the true position, advances steadily.
