On Friday the Sun moves from Aquarius the water bearer, to Pisces – the mystical, mermaid of the zodiac. As there is going to be a total solar eclipse in Pisces on March 9th this is a potent time for the Pisceans….
There’s a mash-up in the heavens this week as the Aquarian New Moon that triggers Chinese New Year brings the Year of the Monkey just before Valentines.
Perhaps we can see the cosmic joke in this – actually the Monkey is an agile improvisor, full of charm, versatile and sociable. So this is a fast forward year. Happy Valentines which falls under the Taurus Moon – solid, sensual and slow…..
The emotional debris, junk and psychic clutter that surfaces when Venus entangles with Pluto and Uranus reveals the kind of baggage people carry into relationships. Put yourself in a bubble of light and consciously try to elevate……
Straight after Sunday’s Full Moon Mercury slides to a halt. Astronomically, this is an optical illusion, Mercury doesn’t actually stand still – merely appears to (So typical of the trickster energy of this planet!). Then as Mercury moves towards his final in a series of 3 meetings with Pluto, planet of truth – there is a chance we can get a lot resolved by the end of January.
Mercury retrograde is a funny thing, when you get caught in traffic, when you run out of milk, you’ve come out without coins to put in the parking meter and so it goes on….. it’s those seemingly little things that inconvenience us and trip us up. Our phone runs out of battery, the tube line is disrupted. All of this makes our connections tricky. This week although Mercury is still doing its retrograde thing it bumps back into Pluto – the planet of truth. This is what we need to concentrate on – the one big home home-truth, the realisation, the point we need to get across to someone. This is the aspect that is deep and meaningful this week and changes our thinking. The rest is just blah blah.
After rather a fraught entry into 2016 we get a New Moon which is a natural New Year energy. Although Mercury is still retrograding through the heavens and there’s a need to take things slowly, this week’s aspects are positive and upbeat.
Fasten your seat belts this week for turbulence in the cosmos…. it’s a bit crazy out there and stripping the place of the Christmas decorations makes what lurks beneath stand out. Psychologically speaking it’s a good time to begin therapy! Or otherwise brace yourself for the nutters out there – yourself excluded of course….

The Full Moon on Christmas Day will illuminate a lot in everyone’s lives. It is a torch-light shining on the obvious truths, magnifying what is usually over-looked. As Venus, Mercury and Jupiter are also performing Hark the Herald Angels Sing – it’s good to experience the beauty in word and deed – and save any dramas for another day, by which time they may be back in proportion.
