Planetary news this week! January 21, 2019

January horoscopesOn the heels of a Full Moon, Supermoon and lunar eclipse last night, the Moon continues to move through Leo where it helps to expand our hearts and find our inner enthusiasm.  Meanwhile Mars (assertive energy) is nearing the midpoint of its trip to Aries, but a challenge from Saturn could cause some trouble over the next few days as our enthusiasm and motivation (Mars) is stressed by Saturn’s restrictions and a sense of limitation.  This is a good time to proceed slowly towards perfection rather than run impulsively into the fire of our desire (wait a minute, that is poetry!).

Venus (love and beauty) aligns with bountiful Jupiter over the next few days, and both planets are in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius.  Optimism and faith abounds now, but that pesky Saturn influence may put the kibosh on plans temporarily.

Between the 22nd and 24th Mercury is very active which will stimulate mental activity and enhance communication.  Mercury aligns with the South Node of the past on the 21st, turning our thoughts for a day or two to learn more about where we’ve come from so that we can better serve our future,  just before it moves into Aquarius on the 24th and aligns with the Sun.  When Mercury is in Aquarius, the sign of the scientist and wizard/inventor, our minds are just a bit sharper – reasoning takes precedence over raw emotion and we are able to think clearly and with innate wisdom.  There is not much water influence, other than Chiron and Neptune, and since water tends to enhance our connection to feelings and emotion we may find ourselves strongly oriented in the head and mental body.

Our drive and energy will find easier expression when Mars forms a trine to expansive Jupiter on the 25th.  We will begin to feel this expansion a day or so before, and we can utilize this planetary dynamic to motivate ourselves if we need an extra boost.

    Lynn, thank you for this week’s video.

    There is an added dimension that comes across in this format ,and despite being a reader by preference, I think seeing and hearing you “in person” does enrich the content.

    This past week and eclipse have been challenging, and your analysis is very helpful to stay conscious with the triggers rather than letting them run away with me!

      Thank you Marie! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m having fun with it and am going out today to try to find some lighting.

    Lynn: I don’t know if you will see this, but I have a weird question related to this previous eclipse. I was reading on about how a meteor slammed into the Moon during this Lunar eclipse:

    My question is, can an event like this increase the intensity a person might experience? I know I might sound ‘loony’ but I am sensitive to geomagnetic storms. I first read about this on your blog when you wrote about the kp index. I hope this makes sense.

    Thanks! Gina

      Hi Gina, it’s hard to know which factors are affecting us during an eclipse like this one. Was it the fact that it was a Supermoon? Did it hit something in your chart? I too am sensitive to geomagnetic storms and I watch the Planetary K index that you mention . . When it goes about 4 I often will get kind of rattled. It looks like the PK index wasn’t affected by the meteor crash so I would assume those energies didn’t affect our earth’s atmosphere.
