[1:15] The Sun sextiles Jupiter at 04°47’ in Aquarius and Aries on Jan. 24 (5:30 PM PST). Consider it an invitation to shine your light by taking a chance on something new – even if it’s something in your own backyard.

[3:46] Venus enters her sign of exaltation, Pisces, on Jan. 26 (6:33 PM PST), and is in this imaginative sign until Feb. 19th. Indulge your imagination and make your world more beautiful and magical. Relationship-wise, this is a time to practice forgiveness and unconditional love.

[5:57] Moon Report! The First Quarter Moon (Jan. 28, 7:19 AM PST, at 8°25’ Taurus) is on the Sabian symbol 9 Taurus: A Christmas tree decorated. The Moon is in a conjunction with the North Node and Uranus.  To quote April’s uncle-in-law, “Whatever you do will be wrong, act at once!”

[8:48] This is the First Quarter Moon in a Lunar Phase Family that began on April 30, 2022 with a Solar Eclipse at 10°28’ Taurus, which was also in a very close conjunction with Uranus. The action we need to take at this First Quarter Moon is to trust and to enjoy things at face value.

[10:51] Void-of-Course Moon Periods (VOC). On Jan. 23rd, the Moon at 25°25’ Aquarius conjoins Venus at 2:19 AM PST. It is VOC for about seven hours before it enters Pisces at 9:36 AM PST.  n absolutely lovely time to consider the pleasure of companionship, your values and what you want to leave behind for future generations.

[12:50] The Moon at 28°31’ Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn on Jan. 27 at 1:01 PM PST and is VOC for about two-and-three-quarter hours before entering Taurus at 3:42 PM PST. Temper self-centered attitudes with constructive criticism from an authority figure.

[14:01] The Sun trines Mars at 09°53’ Aquarius and Gemini on Jan. 29 at 5:45 PM PST.  The Sun is on the Sabian symbol, 10 Aquarius, A popularity that proves ephemeral.  This transit will be in effect from around Jan. 27-30. An excellent time for thinking creatively and for promoting yourself and ideas.

[16:33] Also on Jan. 29 at 6:16 PM PST, shortly after the Sun trines Mars, Mercury trines Uranus at 14°57’ Capricorn and Taurus. The Sabian symbol for Mercury is Many toys in a children’s ward of a hospital.  A flow of brilliant thoughts should be more accessible during this aspect.

[18:10] Listener Cyn asks about the challenges of planets in the 12th House.

  • I’m so glad to be back… it was a long and challenging year and I’ve been kind of hiding out.
    Hearing your voice and, as always. very, very clear explanations was just a joy.
    I searched for you on Twitter as Big Sky Astrology but didn’t find you… perhaps I should have searched for your name?
