Mars Turns Direct 🔥








What does 2023 hold for you? To schedule a New Year’s Reading

(S hemisphere below)The Red Planet Moves Forward Once Again This is been an extra slow kick off to the New Year, with Mercury & Mars retrograde. But now… the tide is turning and Mars, planetary god of action, passion & warfare is doing an about face this week at 8° Gemini.

When Mars changes directions, he slows way down. For example, before he moves forward to 9°, he will have sat at 8° for over three weeks. I mention this because even though we are going in the right direction, care is required. You know how when you’re learning to drive a stick shift, it’s all about the perfect dance of letting out clutch and adding gas. If you get impatient you will either stall or do a dramatic burnout. As Mars rules cars this is an apt and useful metaphor… we’re all tied of ten weeks of extra reactive Astro weather, but reentry requires a little grace from Venus.

Move slow and steady. Mercury is still retrograde and we’re under a waning Moon. Take the next two weeks to work on your strategy and supplies list for what you are gestating under your fluffy wings right now.

We are in wintertime in the northern hemisphere and the storms have been intense and at extended play.

Capricorn is a yin earth sign, creating natural conditions for tending to your inner world. Let non essentials drop away this week. Sleep as long as you are able to, take naps, take walks, do a cold dip somewhere.

Soon enough the New Year will quicken, so enjoy the slowdown and let your Mars engine warm up for a while before driving it again. Once again, look to the part of your chart that has 08° Gemini to know where the arrow will soon be shot, to or from. —————— Monday January 9 Things feel a little janky as we start the week with Mercury Rx trine Uranus. Miscommunications, irritability and impatience with fools is likely. You may be on either end of that. It’s a good day for deep breaths and some grains of salt. Tuesday January 10 As we continue our quiet journey through the wise-earth of Capricorn, the Virgo Moon squares Mars, “helping” our stationing planetary god of passion, action, and war gather his scattered belongings & thoughts from his long Rx trip. Use this energy to assess what messes have been made since Halloween that you haven’t had a chance to tend to. Streamline, refine, and minimize. Wednesday January 11 This is an industrious day as the Virgo Moon trines the Sun & Pluto in Cap, while making a trine to Uranus. Efficiency and innovation are on your side today so put them to good use! Thursday January 12 The late Virgo Moon makes a trine to Pluto and opposes Neptune. This is a problem solving aspect that requires the use of your imagination to get through whatever your quandary is. Today Mars stations direct at 8° Gemini. Time to reboot your animal instincts, shake off any misunderstandings, apologize for any quarrels and prepare yourself for a burst of energy in the part of your chart that houses 8° Gemini. Friday January 13 Friday the 13th coincides with a sexy Libra Moon making a trine to Mars & Venus. We recall that in the days of indigenous magic, when Freya’s Day (Friday/Venus day) lined up with the number 13, (long connected to the Goddess via the 13 Moon cycles per year) everyone would stay home from toiling in the fields and make love all day. You may use this inspiration any way you’d like. There is also a lunar square to Rx Mercury reminding us that relationships always require good and attentive communication, and that truth telling is a aphrodisiac. Saturday January 14 Not to be outdone by Friday the 13th, today the Libra Moon trines Venus, while square the Sun & Pluto. This is sexy, passionate astrology that wants you to sink your teeth into something good; project, person, pomegranate… just use it somehow. Sunday January 15 A Scorpio Moon joins Jupiter in the early degrees of the Mars signs today, which continues yesterday’s sexy vibes and takes it even deeper and more emotional. Desire is a strong motivator, and the Scorpio Moon takes us into our private longings while Jupiter in Aries thrusts us out into the whitewater of life. Get busy today!

Monday January 9

Today we feature a conversation between the heart and the head as the Leo Moon opposite Venus in Aquarius squares the Nodal Axis. Notice if you are living in one side or the other and make some effort into linking them together inside of yourself. Both inputs are essential but one can drown the other out.

Mercury in Cap Rx trine Uranus pushes us into doing some thinning about where we give in to authority in ways that keep us small. Inhale your own authority today and make your own big decisions instead of giving your power away to others.
