Weekly Horoscope for Jan. 23-29

Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Libra
A desire to have everything in balance, total equilibrium, and equality is paramount with this astro sign. Unfortunately the world doesn’t usually work that way and then the Libra energy presents some depression, disappointment, and a loss of what to do next. Cheerful ‘Pollyanna-type’ platitudes won’t really work here, so just charge ahead and go through the feelings and then notice how much better it is on the other side.

Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Scorpio
You may experience a deep, passionate need to know all the secrets you can get your hands on. Although it may be hard to do, limit yourself to one or two at a time and then give yourself a rest while you ponder them. 

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Two keywords for Sagittarius are wisdom and bravery/courage. The wisdom is connected to the thirst for higher and broader levels of knowledge. The bravery is connected to the ability to risk anything for a unique or meaningful experience. The caveat re: Sag is to pace yourself. 

Saturday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Three of the personal planets – Mercury, Venus, Mars – are in Capricorn which makes them conjunct the Moon. You may notice that some people seem to be rather stoic and perhaps overly cautious while others are leaping into an active leadership scenario. Both types have something to say about this weekend, so take heed and filter through to whatever fits into your situation. (the five personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars)

When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, if the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! It is also interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).

∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde including Direct & In Station)

*Venus Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Relationships, especially love relationships, will likely be more in the background than upfront. Take it easy with expressed feelings of that nature and agree to address any concerns after Venus goes Direct. (See info above about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Venus when appropriate.)

**Solar Eclipse/A = Annular, which is an eclipse that is almost a Total Eclipse but will show a narrow ring of light surrounding the New Moon.
**Partial Lunar Eclipse – the Full Moon is not completely covered.
**Total Solar Eclipse – when it appears that the Sun is completely covered.
