Mercury has been retrograde in Sagittarius. Uranus is now direct in Aries. The Sun has now met Pluto in Capricorn and is continuing onward with longer days for the next few months.

We are in a time of great transformation and decision making.

Those who have felt stuck will do well to finish up clearing out anything that has been holding you back - including physical items and mental hangups. If you’re not living the life you want, a shift in perceptions and a concrete plan to make appropriate changes will take you forward to living a better life.

Letting go of old ways of thinking and developing new beliefs about what is possible for you will improve your life and your esteem. The beginning of this year signifies a need to get rid of outworn thoughts so you can redefine yourself.

There are big shifts that happen this week, including Mercury stationing direct.

All planets are now going direct and none will be retrograde again until February 6, 2017, when Jupiter stations retrograde.

The Full Moon in Cancer also arrives later in the week on Thursday.

What's Happening this Week?

Sunday, January 8, 2017

On Sunday, January 8, 2017 Mercury stations direct in Sagittarius at 4:44 am EST.

Mercury being retrograde recently in Sagittarius has been a good time to consider asking yourself questions about how you can make your life more adventurous.

How have you been holding yourself back from living a more adventurous life? What do you have to look forward to? How have you talked yourself out of experiencing more of the possibilities you could enjoy with your life? This is the time to brainstorm big ideas to look forward to. It’s a good time to start planning some adventures throughout the year and scheduling them into your planner.

We are all in the throes of developing a new worldview. It’s time to shed your old skin, your doubts and hangups that don’t serve your happiness, so you can look forward to what excites you.

How can you change directions so that your life experience is filled with enthusiasm and happiness? What would make you feel like you’re thriving? Focus on that as we move forward in 2017.

If you’re the type that is on autopilot, just going day by day, with no outlook on life, this is the time to get more interested in creating opportunities to get excited about. Having a few things to look forward to is good for your well being and helps take the monotony out of your days.

Did you make mistake while Mercury was retrograde? It's common to receive reminders of how important documenting information is when Mercury is retrograde, especially in terms of business dealings or agreements. Now that Mercury is direct, it should be easier to smooth things over with intelligent, thoughtful discussion. When you talk it out thoroughly and have supporting documentation to prove both sides of the story it brings good clarity, and diminishes complications.

The Moon enters Gemini early in the week. This is a great time to chat and think about what’s possible for you.

Monday, January 9, 2017

On Monday, January 9, 2017 the Moon is in conflict with Venus, Neptune and Mars. This day calls for emotional intelligence when faced with issues that pull at your heart or your tempers.

This can be a day where compassion for others becomes a more evident need. Nobody has it that easy. Helping others, reducing suffering, or preemptively not contributing to suffering as much as possible is good karma.

Those who are disillusioned by reality could find today a bit more challenging. When subjects are touchy, talking about thoughts and feelings can be especially difficult for sensitive types.

Though doubts could be plentiful today, it’s still advised to focus on your aspirations and higher aims. Focusing on the bigger picture and exciting plans can be helpful to bring a positive boost to your day.

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

On Tuesday, January 10, 2017 the Sun in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries are at odds. If you don’t like your situation or circumstances, you’ll need to put in the work to change it. If you don’t feel as powerful or in charge of your own life, this week can mark a shift that motivates you to take more control over your future by making plans that are achievable.

The Moon continues in Gemini connecting with Uranus, Jupiter, then Saturn and finally Mercury before entering Cancer later in the day.

Expand on what you think and believe your future can be. If you want to go ahead and do something with your life, it doesn’t matter what others say you can or cannot do. It’s up to you to create the inspired life you dream of.

Pay attention to the coincidences today. Whatever perks up your ears or feels inspiring is worth contemplating further.

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

On Wednesday, January 11, 2017 Mars in Pisces connects with Pluto in Capricorn. Power, politics, ego, beliefs, compassion and karma are pivotal features of the day.

Just about everyone of us is passionate about something in life, and each of us can have an impact. Those who are interested in making a difference could find today motivating and empowering to create change.

If you want to make a real difference in the world this is a good time to consider the career you could go for that would help you feel successful.

Being a leader or living as an example of how to create change through bigger causes can give you a real sense of purpose to your life.

Being part of a movement for change can be the motivation that helps change the world.
Volunteers, activists and advocates could find extra motivation to take action this week.

The Moon in Cancer connects with Venus, Neptune Pluto and Mars today as well. The protective quality can add to the motivation. If you’re the type of person that cares about a cause, this week could have you feeling the need to get involved.

The Sun and Jupiter are at odds today as well. Issues I’ve been talking about regarding power in politics and the media, corruption, balance, truth, fairness, equality won’t be going away anytime soon. There’s a lot to consider and work through. This week only reminds us of this further.

In your personal life, this can indicate a time that reminds you that to reach your goals, you need to also have balance in your personal life and your relationships.

It’s not a good idea to create big issues or inflate disagreements or conflicts as they can get blown out of proportion today. If you’re dealing with politics, business, policies and procedures, or legal matters, try not to stoke discord now as it can just get too big to handle.

It’s not a great day to make decisions that have long term consequences.

Thursday, January 12, 2017

It’s officially a Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday January 12, 2017 at 6:34 am EST.

Just as the Sun has been at odds with Uranus and Jupiter over the past couple of days this week, the Moon is at odds with Uranus and Jupiter as well, not long before the Full Moon arrives today. Thoughts and feelings could seem more intense with the Full Moon.

This Full Moon can indicate a crossroads and activates a Grand Cardinal Cross. Wanting and needing change can get us going but we’ll need extra support to stay motivated when faced with challenges.

The importance of family, loved ones, nurturance and caring is a primary focus now. But personal identity and relationships, career concerns, financial matters and political issues are also in the spotlight during this Full Moon. There’s a lot on everyone’s plate. It’s all connected. Finding the right balance is essential to happiness.

We’re moving forward into a new year and it’s time to set the stage for the months to come.

Though disagreements and debates on a wide variety of issues won’t be uncommon now, the bright side is that flushing out issues is likely to lead to better decisions for your life overall. Admitting the problems is the first step to resolving the issues and changing your circumstances.

Decisions made now can have big impact and just might revolutionize your life.

The Full Moon asks, “How do you feel about the choices you’ve made so far? What can you do to create more comfort and security in your life? Do you feel like you’re being true to yourself? How are your relationships? How is your career? How is your relationship with your family and loved ones?”

With all planets direct now, you may feel ripe for change. Do you feel ready to go forward creating the life you want?

Realizations can show up suddenly and in strangely coincidental ways this week. Feel your way through the week and weigh your options with your gut instincts.

It’s been a good time to consider streamlining your life lately. Hopefully during Mercury retrograde you’ve had a chance to purge a bit, out with the old and in with the new. You don’t want all those complications and excesses that just hold you back and weigh you down anyway.

Deciding to work towards manifesting the life you want for you and your family will take effort, but it can eventually lead to freedom. Today reminds us of the power of choices to take us one way or another.

This Full Moon also asks, "How am I nurturing my well being, my mind and taking care of my body?"

Mercury enters Capricorn on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 9:03 am EST. Mercury has been direct since Sunday, January 8th, 2017.

Getting focused on your career ambitions and your goals is well advised. How you make money and use money to manifest your goals needs more attention going forward. This is an important time to focus on business planning and development.

If you’ve been thinking about the adventures you want to experience with your life over the past few days with Mercury having been retrograde in Sagittarius, now is the time to make more concrete plans. Put your pen to paper and figure out the steps to get there so you can manifest your thoughts into reality.

Now that Mercury retrograde is fading away, and you’ve hopefully gotten rid of old thoughts as well as material items that bog you down, clarity should arrive that inspires real world results. With Mercury direct now, it’s a good time to replace the old with the new.

The key is to get inspired by making plans and having goals that excite you.

Venus Meets Neptune on Thursday, January 12, 2017 as well. Love really is what makes life meaningful. As we get older and the passage of time changes our lives, reminders of how precious life is show up more and more. People and pets come and go, and our time is short. Each moment is a precious gift.

The love you share with the world becomes the best of what remains in the hearts of others.

This is a time to enjoy the pleasures of life. Music, poetry, romance, a delicious, warm meal with a glass of fragrant red wine are just some examples of tapping into today’s sensuous energy well. When life feels magical and love is priority, we get that much closer to a sense of oneness with reality.

If someone is suffering or in need, this is a great time to reach out and show you care. Your love can go a long way to making reality a more beautiful place. Helping others, with no expectation of anything in return, to be of service from the heart, brings real meaning to life.

Friday, January 13, 2017

On Friday, January 13, 2017 the Moon is in Leo but doesn’t make any aspects.

It’s Friday the 13th! Today is best for being creative or entertained just for fun. Spending time figuring out how to enjoy the day is part of the enjoyment. A carefree expressive approach is freeing.

Tomorrow is excellent for creative types, so today, preparing your tools and supplies for a creative project is recommended.

It’s a great day to go window shopping, take in a movie, visit a gallery, art show or enjoy a dinner with live music. A passive approach to the day without big expectations is recommended.

Saturday, January 14, 2017

On Saturday, January 14, 2017 the Moon in Leo connects nicely with Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn.

This is the time to be true to yourself, to be confidently you so you can live your truth on your own terms.

This is a great time for artists to find ways to express their creative personality. Those who have a revolutionary bent will find the bigger issues of life, like political issues, justice, and world affairs to be particularly interesting subjects to create inspiring works of art.

Exotic cultures can be great inspiration. From cuisine, to shops, to art from around the world, the creative expressions of others can give you amazing ideas.

Finding your creative voice and expressing yourself without holding back can be liberating.

Facing your obstacles is the best way to surmount them. Hard work, time and effort toward creating the life you want can move mountains.

I'm all ears. Do you have anything you'd like to share with me this week? Let me know here.
