#145 January 16-22: The Sun and New Moon in Aquarius, and Mercury Goes Direct!

Greetings,


Scott and Ingrid get deep into and ramble through a couple of your questions, which may answer other questions you may have had, or maybe just confuse you, but either way, hopefully it’s entertaining.


The theme of the week is freak, because the New Moon in Aquarius is all about flying your freak flag, being that independent individual that you need to be because there’s nobody who can be you, except you.


Mercury goes direct, which means continue to focus on clearing your plate, before taking on any new projects until February 6, when Mercury exits its retrograde shadow.

#145 The Sun and the New Moon in Aquarius, and Mercury Goes Direct!


The themes this week are…


1. Independence

2. Individuality

3. Responsibility


It is up to you.


When you take responsibility for yourself, you will attract others who will do the same.


From there you will find yourself in a group where everyone is taking responsibility for themselves.


At that point you are unstoppable.


Imagine, a group of people, all holding themselves accountable.


No backstabbing.

No finger pointing.

No whispers of worry.


Speak up. Speak out.

Encourage others to speak up and speak out.


They may sound different than you.

They may have a point of view which contrasts with yours.


Dissenting voices that hold themselves accountable encourage progress, because progress is never made when everyone is holding everybody, but themselves responsible for the problem.


Take responsibility for the problem together, and together you will find a solution, which will progress society into a future where everyone has greater independence.


With greater independence comes greater responsibility.


Are you willing to hold yourself accountable?


If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.


Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!

TUESDAY, January 17


The Moon in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn

WEDNESDAY, January 18

Mercury Direct in Capricorn


Alas, Mercury Retrograde has ended, however, Mercury will remain at 8° in Capricorn, where it has been since January 14, until January 21.


That’s a full week at one degree.


Mercury typically moves 1° to 2° a day when it is transiting at its normal pace.


The stagnation of the planet of communication, coordination, and consciousness, brings challenges in these three areas.


Therefore, slow down.

Take your time.

Refrain from rushing into new situations.


Think like an adult.

Speak like an adult.

Take responsibility for your words.


Only share the thoughts that assist you in ascending towards a higher position, perspective, or goal.

Retrograde Shadow: December 12, 2022 at 8°8’

Retrograde: December 29, 2022 at 24°21’

End of Retrograde: January 18, 2023 at 8°8’

This period could be a challenging day for those born with key astrological points or planets in Aries or Libra.



°°°


The Sun Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn


By taking responsibility for your words, you allow yourself to transform, and present yourself from a position of authority.


Someone who is a true authority also holds themselves accountable.


When you hold yourself accountable, you become entrusted by those you are responsible for, and you receive greater authority.


How can you hold yourself accountable?


What are you willing to take responsibility for?


Are you willing to hold yourself accountable by putting in the work to achieve your goals?


When: January 16 – 20


This period could be a challenging day for those born with key astrological points or planets in Aries or Libra.



THURSDAY, January 19

The Moon in Sagittarius Sextile Saturn in Aquarius


On Monday and Tuesday the Moon in Scorpio aligned with Saturn in Aquarius.


Today and tomorrow the Moon realigns with Saturn in Aquarius, this time however the planet of emotions is in the Sign of Sagittarius.


Scorpio represents secrets.

Sagittarius represents honesty.


The frequency of these two Signs are vastly different.

Scorpio possesses a powerful stillness.

Sagittarius is a wild fire.


If you refrained from expressing your emotions to the group earlier in the week, you may find yourself expressing yourself with a blunt honesty that may feel like a foot in the mouth.


If you did express your emotions earlier in the week, you may now be experiencing the joy of what it feels like to be free from censorship, and accepted by those around you.


When: 10pm (1/18) – 4am PST (1/19)


This period could be a challenging day for those born with key astrological points or planets in Virgo or Pisces.



FRIDAY, January 20


The Sun in Aquarius


Let’s get logical.


Aquarius is the Sign of individuality, innovation, independence, humanitarian causes, and progressive ideals that bring equality.


Aquarius is the Fixed Air Sign ruled by Saturn, the planet of restriction, and Uranus, the planet of rebellion.


You may be wondering, how could the planet of restriction and the planet of rebellion rule by the same Sign?


The answer to that question is in the symbol for the Sign, which is the Water Bearer.


You may also be wondering, why is the sign symbolized by the Water Bearer an Air Sign? Shouldn’t it be a Water Sign?
