This week, two dominant themes become active, and people’s frustration meters will go through the roof as Venus squares confusing Neptune and Mars square limiting Saturn. So, you may want to clutch your pearls because things are about to get real. VERY REAL!
Capricorn energy remains dominant throughout the week, which is beneficial for business and career opportunities. Since we are still in the New Moon cycle, new opportunities could prove fruitful and you should take advantage of them. However, this week will be a roller-coaster for relationships. If your relationship is not grounded (in reality) and based on unrealistic expectations, you may feel frustrated, depressed, and dismayed when Venus squares Neptune. In fact, many relationships may end because Mars square Saturn will leave you feeling like you are driving with the breaks on and leads to reactive behavior. If your relationship goes through struggles, it’s a good time to do a reality check to make sure that the relationship is aligned with your values and personal desires. If it’s not, you may need to deal with these issues before your relationship can move forward.
In other cosmic news, Jupiter in Sagittarius dominates this week’s energy. Despite everything happening in your life, you need to keep your big picture objectives in mind and continue to strive to achieve them.
Now, on with the forecast…
Monday, January 14, 2019
The week starts off with a lovely aspect between Mercury and Neptune. Your intuition will kick into high gear and you need to take note if any feelings or intuitive hits that you may have because they will be accurate, especially with feelings about real-world issues (career, work, money, responsibilities). Additionally, Mercury sextile Neptune amplifies your ability to sense the emotions and intentions of those around you. Use this insight carefully.
Despite its overall positive influence, Mercury-Neptune aspects are not well adapted to activities that need clarity and attention. Instead, use this energy for creative work, meditation, or connecting to your inner self. You may be surprised by the insight you receive.

On Tuesday, the Moon spends its first full day in earthy Taurus and makes nice aspects to Saturn, Neptune, and Mercury. Focus on financial matters during the morning hours, which could be anything from preparing your tax returns to making a budget. However, during the evening hours turn towards activities to pamper yourself. A massage, haircut, or manicure may be in order.
The Moon continues to move through Taurus and forms lovely trines to Pluto and the Sun. There is a powerful window during the morning hours to stand in your personal power and ask for what you want, especially if your self-worth has been lacking recently. The Moon remains in Taurus until the evening hours when it moves into chatty Gemini. It’s a great night to socialize with like-minded individuals.
Thursday, January 17, 2019
Relationship struggles could begin on Thursday as the Moon moves through mercurial, and often argumentative, Gemini. If your relationship has been challenging, then feelings of insecurity and self-doubt will occur during the evening hours. Try to use this intense energy productively by reading a book or doing activities that utilize your mind.
Friday, January 18, 2019
Friday is the most active day of the week with three major planetary aspects – Venus trine Mars, Mercury conjunct Pluto, and Sun square Uranus.
You may be at odds with the world around you with Sun square Uranus. Unexpected changes could occur around work and career that leave you feeling unsettled. However, if you need to get to the bottom of a situation or resolve problems, Mercury conjunct Pluto could be of assistance.
On the relationship front, you will get a small reprieve from this week’s intense energies with Venus in trine to Mars. Try to use this energy to resolve as many of the underlying issues in your relationship while you can.
The weekend could prove hyper-emotional as the Moon moves through Cancer and forms frustrating aspects to Mars in Aries and Saturn in Capricorn. Emotional insecurities will be back with a vengeance that could leave you in an emotionally reactive state. The Moon’s aspects on Saturday dovetail into Venus square Neptune on Sunday, which could prove problematic in relationships. Keep the big picture relationship issues that I discussed earlier in mind throughout the day, as this could be a tool of relief from the intense emotional energy active in the cosmos.
See you next week…
