Your Weekly Horoscope Overview

We’re already entering February. Time is flying.

Last week I talked about how important it is to prioritize your time to focus more time on the things that matter to your goals and to prevent getting distracted.

This week Mars continues in Aries while later in the week, on Friday, Venus enters Aries as well. I’ll talk more about that for Friday below.

The Moon continues to grow since the New Moon in Aquarius, bringing attention to our hopes and wishes for a better future. Keep working on your vision and setting goals. Growing your social sphere can bring you opportunities and benefit your future.

The big mover this week is Mercury.

Mercury first meets up with Pluto in Capricorn on Sunday to start the week.

Then Mercury is at odds with Uranus in Aries on Tuesday, then at odds with Jupiter in Libra on Thursday.

This is big transformation time. If you want to change your life, this week can give you a reality check. It’s high time to shift your perceptions and find your personal power.

Change your thoughts, to change your reality.

Be careful and thoughtful of what you say this week as your words have the power to manifest real impact in the world now.

Applying yourself, and putting your mind to practical activities can make a big difference in your life now. Continue to spend more time on your priorities and goals, and set up practical steps to get the results you want.

Just like the crossroads I talked about with the Full Moon in Cancer, this week Mercury highlights the tension of Pluto, Jupiter and Uranus once again. Decisions have a big impact on the real world now. The desire for truth and freedom is obvious.

Exchanges of information can be complex at this time though, and any number of surprise issues can arise. Though you may think you have all the info you need, you may not, and changes to agreements or perceptions can happen suddenly now.

It’s also a good time to backup your data on your computer and generally get yourself in order as best you can, just in case.

It’s a good week to ask a lot of questions.

Nobody knows everything but everyone knows something. Be willing to ask questions and look more deeply at issues to find the information you need. It’s a good time to look at a lot of different angles to become more informed and knowledgeable. Put aside bias as best you can and look at a wider viewpoint. Rather than just seeing your own point of view, try to see other people’s points of view as well.

This week, decisions can be consequential. But, since there can be a lot of ups and downs and plenty of distractions with so much information coming at us from different angles pulling our thoughts in all directions, it can be difficult to decide which way to turn.

To make the most of this week, put in the effort to maintain focus by choosing what your priorities are. Set some goals for the week.

Organizing and gaining clarity on your finances, taking care of your health and wellness routines, and clarifying your schedule are recommended to get you on track.

Do you remember when Jupiter was in Virgo with the North Node last year? I talked a lot about getting life organized and on track in many Horoscopes in late 2015 right into the Summer of 2016.

The North Node will still be in Virgo only until mid-May, 2017. So, over the next few months, it’s a good idea to do what you can to create a good, organized, healthy routine for your work and lifestyle to help your life run more efficiently. I talk more about this for Tuesday’s Daily Advice below.

I also talked a lot about Mercury, Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and the North Node last year in January 2016. You will likely find that information worth reading again.

Political Big Picture Overview

I know, there is an excess of political talk now, but these are the times so I'm focusing on it a bit more than usual these days.

The tension between these power players, Mercury connecting with Pluto in Capricorn, and connecting with Uranus, and then Jupiter this week, is a strong sign of major political, legal and business talks.

Words from, and decisions by, authority figures are likely to ring loud. A battle of information is possible. The ego will be a big player in lessons learned this week.

Issues of control and power in politics, media, the economy, environmental concerns, personal identity, laws, equality, truth and bias are biggies this week. How we do or don’t identify with the structures of society is strongly highlighted. Digging for the truth can lead to many more questions.

We’ll likely see more strong voices, powerful, poignant keywords or phrases in the media that could be highly controversial and lead to lots of gossip and wide ranging opinions. With Mars in Aries, strong actions can follow strong words.

With the abundance of diverse opinions, truths and untruths on display in the media, it can feel like it’s out of hand. A strong push to try to gain control is likely to be seen this week regarding the political media dramas. Pluto signifies it can be messy, with a strong focus on what is hidden and unknown behind the scenes.

Global travel and immigration have been challenging issues since Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, has been in Sagittarius. Mercury meeting Pluto brings emphasis to such talks.

Mercury rules commerce and meeting Pluto now can signal much more talk and debate about money matters that can lead to significant changes.

Discussions about oil, “black gold,” are likely. Talks about business, money matters, and the economy can grow in significance. Environmental considerations are also in focus. Tension regarding protecting the land and environment vs. corporate interests are highlighted.

Money, trade and financial exchanges are complex subjects that are far reaching in nearly everything we do. Key talks and decisions can shift financial tides.

The need to learn more about money to have a better understanding of how it works and affects your life is increased this week.

The more you know about money, the more likely you are to make better decisions about how you manage and relate to money.

With all that said, however, as I mentioned last week, it’s important to focus on your own priorities instead of using too much of your valuable time getting drawn into the drama in the media.

Personal Side of Life Overview

With Mercury in Capricorn, it’s a good idea to continue developing your mind-body connection, bringing your attention down to earth, to nature and the environment.

Mercury in Capricorn with Pluto signifies more of “Out with the old, and in with the new.”

Our thoughts are powerful. What do you think about most often? An intentional shift in focus and priority can change your life significantly.It is advised to continue working on getting rid of negative thinking patterns and negative words.

How do you define yourself? What words do you use to describe yourself?

Use empowering words instead to describe yourself and your life and it will change you.

Mercury and Pluto now speak volumes about our changing thoughts about money, career, achievements and goals.

The tension between Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus these days can bring the benefit of a reality check, especially regarding goals and financial concerns.

Generally decisions may be difficult, but powerful.

A closer, in depth look at the root causes of your decisions is recommended. How did you get to where you are now? Understanding why you have made certain decisions can help you dig up the dirt and plant new seeds for better outcomes.

If you feel like your job or career just doesn’t seem to fit the lifestyle you want, this week can spark a change. Money can be one of the main motivators.

Getting clearer on your financial picture and outlook is an important part of getting organized. If you’re financial situation is disorganized, this is the week to get on the ball and on track to improving your money management skills.

If you’re an entrepreneur, this is a good week to work on a business plan to get clearer on how to get from where you are now to where you want to be. Organization is the key.

As recommended, ask lots of questions and look deeper at the he issues that are holding you back so you can get clear and maximize your best efforts. In whatever you do, ask, “Do I really want to do this? Do I identify with this?”

It’s an important time to get yourself organized to make practical changes and improvements in your lifestyle. Change your habits, stop wasting time, energy and money, and commit to thinking in a more empowered way so you can improve your life.

Replace those habits, that are pulling you all over the place, with more direct choices that get you moving towards the goals and outcomes you really want to experience in life.

If you feel stuck, at a crossroads and needing a change, this can feel like a powerful time to shift your focus and change directions.

Be a leader in your life and make your own choices. Set your priorities. An authoritative stance can be very powerful now.

Don’t be surprised if a lot of uncanny coincidences show up for you this week. Repetitions and strange coincidences can make important key moments stand out and grab your attention. Inquire and look further to find meaning in what happens.

What's Happening Each Day This Week?

Sunday, January 29, 2017

Mercury meets Pluto on Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 3:21 pm EST.

This week can mark big changes. Words, decisions and ideas are extra powerful now. They literally have the power to change the ways of the world. Saying No to what you don’t really want, can be one of the most empowering words and can change the direction of your life.

For a lot of people, this week brings a major reality check. Do you think you are on the road to manifesting the life you want? How are your decisions demonstrating your power to manifest the life you want?

Are you empowered by your goals? Do you know your potential and act on it? Decision making can be difficult this week, but necessary. Prioritizing helps bring clarity.

This is also a good time to starting thinking about writing a business plan if you haven’t already. Looking at all the issues from many angles to gain clarity on what is a good idea and what isn’t is highly recommended now.

Realistic, practical steps to achieve your goals, particularly your financial and business goals, can empower you.

Remember, as well that time is your most precious resource. Continue to work on prioritizing how you are using your time to be most effective as discussed last week.

Leadership decisions in politics, business, income and career matters, the economy and environment are in strong focus. Power moves are possible surrounding this day, mistakes are possible, and the voices of those that oppose changes will strengthen.

The Moon also enters Pisces today. Reflecting on the mysteries of life’s bigger purpose can soften the rough edges of the day. If you need a bit of an escape, music can move your soul to new depths. Flow with it.

Decisions and grand ideas can feel destined now.

Monday, January 30, 2017

The Moon meets with Neptune today, then connects well with Pluto and Mercury.

It’s time to choose to make your dreams a reality by doing something about it. Rather than just dreaming about it you need to bring the dream down to earth.

We each write the ways of the world. We are each authors of our lives. We each can dream of a better life and decide to make it become our reality.

Speak with good intentions and focus on creating good karma now for best results. Replace negative words you use with more enlightened thoughts about reality.

Today, is an excellent time to find your center. To meditate and get in touch with the world in a more energetic and intuitive way bring much soul growth.

Accessing a higher authority or higher calling today is an important part of the package.

What do you believe about money? Money is a neutral tool. It is merely a concept, but a powerful one. You can do what you want with it. Money itself is not good or bad, it is the decisions by people about how to use money that changes what it can do. It is decision on using money that swings the pendulum in positive and negative ways. So, if you want to add some goodness in the world, use money for good. What you put your money towards is a vote for what you want in the world.

Since the use of money is complex and because using money gives people power to manifest their choices, we know that the power hungry can use money in ways that grow their power. “Rich Man's Syndrome” tends to cause many people to become corrupt (or reveal their true colors) once they feel like they have financial power. Like a corporation, some people put their own wants, needs and desires first, and disregard the full picture of consequences. It is a matter of choice, which speaks volumes about the person using it.

Mercury meeting Pluto speaks to words, wealth and use of power. A word I strongly dislike is “hustle.” I hear it used often with people who are discussing how they conduct business and entrepreneurship. As soon as I hear someone use the word hustle, it’s a red flag. The word hustle to me represents taking advantage of others for one’s own gain. To persuade someone in a direction that really may not be in that person’s best interest, all in the name of money, is not my idea of good karma or good intentions. Remember, words have the power to define your perceptions.

This day asks you to question ethical and moral decisions around money and how it impacts the world, people and environment around you for the better.

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

The Moon is at odds with Saturn, then meets Venus in Pisces. This can indicate a questioning of our beliefs or challenge our worldview. A compassionate, loving stance will show you the way. Overcoming intolerance and realizing that ultimately oneness is the higher road can open hearts wider.

The Moon enters Aries at 4:46 pm ET then meets up with Mars. That shift in perceptions earlier in the day can lead to motivation and inspiration. Gut instincts can guide your best actions.

Mercury and Uranus are at odds today. A push toward knowing your own capabilities and realizing what your real goals are can lead to big shifts.

If you are a business owner, boss, or leader, any challenges today, big or small, can strongly define your way forward. It’s reality check time. If you want to achieve something good you have to get yourself in line and in order. Organization is the key and becomes more important this week and next!

Rebellion is becoming the norm. Issues of identity and human rights are getting lots of attention, thanks to Uranus in Aries at odds with Jupiter and Pluto. Mercury at odds with Uranus emphasizes this conversation now.

The grassroots counter culture to political issues, elitism and powerful leaders has been growing in volume on all sides. There are lots of people rebelling against the political system and structures in society. Disagreements on major decisions and rules continue to make headlines this week.

More surprises could come out of the woodworks now. Overhearing points of view that do not align with what you think is right can build tension. It can be best to step back and keep your lips zipped so you don’t say something you regret.

Doing your own thing can lead to breakthroughs, but you’ll need to put in real time and effort.

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Well, we’re already into month two of 2017!

The Sun and Moon are in positive connection today indicating a good time to dream up new ideas. What excites you about life? What do you want for your life in 2017? Make some lists to help you gain clarity.

Your social life is an important part of your identity. Be with those that you feel most comfortable with today. Working with friends on a common effort is supported. It’s a good day to volunteer and join a new group of people to expand your social sphere.

People at the grassroots level can feel a strong need to join forces now as a way to define the future.

Inventors, visionaries and creators of all types could find relaxing today can bring on the most inspired ideas.

Thursday, February 2, 2017

The Moon in Aries is at odds with Pluto before meeting Uranus today. This emphasizes the strong need of people to define who they are, particularly in contrast to political leaders, corporations and power figures. More will feel like, “I am this. You are that.”

The Moon also is in contrast to Venus and stands across from Jupiter as well today. As we’ve noticed women’s marches have been a strong focus in the media and continues.

Mercury and Jupiter are at odds today too.

As you know I’ve been speaking a lot about the media quite a bit over the past few months. Once Jupiter entered Libra in September we started seeing a growing emphasis on issues around truth and bias in the media, news and journalism particularly regarding politics.

People gravitate towards believing what they want to believe and shutting out other sides of the story. The questions of bias, truth and censorship only continue to become a prominent discussion now.

It’s interesting how the past few months have played out. First the alternative media and independent journalists along with wikileaks were saying that the mainstream media is fake news, biased and contrived. Now the mainstream media has taken the reigns and is defining independent media, wikileaks and the like as fake news. Politicians are proclaiming what’s fake news, and it’s all become convoluted even more. There is a battle of words taking place and truth is in question.

Mercury and Jupiter signify communications and journalism are highly complicated. What’s true, what’s isn’t? Who’s telling the truth? Who is hiding the truth? Is bias and censorship a growing concern? Who can we really trust? How is corporate power being used and abused?

All these types of issues have been coming up for us to talk about and debate. It’s been largely noticeable in politics, thanks to Pluto in the political and business sector at odds with Jupiter. It’s been quite a ride, and it’s not over… This is an issue that will continue to get attention this year, especially when Jupiter goes retrograde in early February.

Words are extra powerful this week and could have people’s ears ringing. A single word can change everything. A catch phrase, a quote can literally change the way people see the world and what we think and believe about life.

The Moon enters Taurus at 8:50 pm ET.

Friday, February 3, 2017

Mars entered Aries last week, giving us new motivation, which is great for entrepreneurs and athletes. It can also be an extra dose of ego, fueling aggressive types and go-getters. For some it can indicate an over the top approach, even a fighting fire with fire attitude. This is particularly strong in those that are rebellious types and like to tread their own path on their own terms.

When Mars was in Scorpio, I talked a lot about behavior and motivations. Now Mars is in Aries. Taking action and being empowered to take charge is great for getting your life on track and excellent for entrepreneurs.

Venus enters Aries on Friday, February 3, 2017 at 10:51 am ET. Venus can bring some calm to this area of our lives. A priority on self worth and valuing unique qualities of people is emphasized. Love can disarm aggression, and making love can calm the passionate flames of Mars.

Those who appreciate nature will find planting new seeds for plants and flowers is a good way to tap into this energy.

Getting excited about potential and growth, as we see in the power of the seed, is awesome.

A stronger push of women’s rights and identity is also likely to increase in the coming weeks.

The Moon and Neptune are also in harmony on Friday. Burning white sage, working with stones, doing yoga, repotting plants, are all good ways to feel connected to earth and spirit now.

New ideas will come to you when you’re in a more mystical and meditative state.

Essential oils, nourishing foods and natural environments that stimulate your well being are recommended.

Saturday, February 4, 2017

The Moon connects well with Pluto and Mercury today. This is a good time to enjoy the pleasures of the earth.

Comfortable surroundings are important for your thinking processes, so clean up and organize a bit. Relaxing while reading, or having a casual conversation over a nice meal can bring you down to earth and help you feel grounded.

Discussing money matters and income in a calm collected way can bring up great ideas and fresh new goals.

The Moon enters Gemini at 11:44 pm ET to end this week and start the next.
