This week marks the Astrological New Year!
This week we have a lot of amazing transits including a powerful Full Moon in Libra the day our Sun moves into Aries. This is a special time for releasing energy preventing us from feeling empowered within our relationships and also a powerful time for Spring cleaning and renewal into a new chapter.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Square Mars in Taurus 5:06 AM
Tension in the early hours and potential for challenges around getting going is a character of this transit and we benefit from slowing things down and not being too emotionally reactive towards anyone or anything.
Moon Trine Jupiter in Sagittarius 8:19 AM
We have the potential to try to do too much too fast and need to be mindful that we don't overwhelm ourselves in the early hours.
Moon Trine Uranus in Taurus 7:39 PM
Unexpected changes could occur in the evening hours and we benefit from going with the flow rather than resisting any cogs that come up and get in the way of our plans. We could feel a sense of urgency around getting things done and we may have a hard time slowing things down.
Moon in Virgo
We continue to benefit from moving forward on things we need to do in a proactive and responsible way. Use the energy of Virgo to be practical and pragmatic in your approach to your responsibilities. This is also a good time for getting yourself on track with your diet and exercise if you haven't been taking good care of yourself.

Moon Opposition Neptune in Pisces 9:14 PM
We may feel tension in the evening hours around things we need to do and indulging in self care. Since this is an evening transit, it may be time for you to let go of any rigidity and focus on winding down and letting yourself relax.
Moon Void of Course 8:22 AM
Moon in Libra 6:28PM
Sun enters Aries 2:59 PM
Full Moon in Libra 6:43 PM
W e have a big day of transits today as our Sun moves from the emotional waters of Pisces and into the activating renewal energy of Aries. This is the Astrological New Year and represents the changing from winter into spring time. Aries energy is ruled by Mars and represents coming into the world as a spiritual being. It is the marriage of soul into matter and invigorates dormant energy that has been waiting to bloom. We may feel a lot of intensity during the day as we also have a Full Moon and we could be feeling like we are discovering new parts of ourselves and how that relates to others in our own lives. Our Full Moon in Libra asks us to reflect on what parts of our relationships maybe are not serving us. Are there areas that need improvement, or conversations that need to happen around things that need to evolve for us in our dynamics with others? Are we relying too much on codependent patterns or are we being too self reliant and pushing others way in an unhealthy way? These are all great things to ask ourselves during this time. We benefit from reflagging on whether this could be in our relationships with partners/lovers, or close friends. With Mars as ruler of Aries and Venus as ruler of Libra, the masculine and feminine polarity comes into view and we are asked to evaluate those parts within ourselves and our relationship to them. Are we living in harmony with both halves of our own masculine and feminine, or is there potentially a part of ourselves that needs more attention and love? Doing a ritual tonight that focuses on marrying and honoring the masculine and feminine as well as the entry point into spring is a beneficial way to spend your evening. Buy yourself some flowers and thank the Sun for its warmth.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Mars in Taurus Trine Pluto in Capricorn 4:37 AM
Although Mars might be slower acting in Taurus, this transit over the next couple days could help initiate some big decision making in regard to our work and physical surroundings in the days to come. Maybe we decide we need to change our routine in a major way, and that could start with evaluating if where we are living or working is in line with the path we are on. It is important that we find ways to ground and stabilize our energy in the days to come. We may feel like we are emotionally and mentally letting go of something that has been comfortable for us for a long time, but some things run their course and we need to let ourselves move forward.
Moon Trine Pluto in Capricorn 7:04 AM
We could feel a lot of emotional energy around getting things done and checked off our to do lists in the morning hours. We benefit from being physical with our bodies, practical with our minds, and diligent with our tasks. We also could feel inspired and motivated to organize things we have been putting off for too long. It may be time to let go of some items we have been holding onto and make space for new energy. Spring Cleaning is a good way to summarize this transit.
Moon Trine Mars in Taurus 7:10 AM
This energy continues to help us gain momentum around getting things done in the physical. We may feel extra motivated to clean and organize our space. There may be a potential to want to do some retail therapy or buy things for your home, be careful to keep your budget in check as you could take it a little further than you meant to. Like mention above, we benefit from getting rid of things taking up space in our lives rather than adding more.
Mercury RX in Pisces Sextile Saturn in Capricorn 7:28 AM
This is a harmonious energy and is beneficial for communicating things we need emotionally in relation to the physical world. Even though Mercury is RX we could benefit from communicating to another what we need in the relationship to feel safe and protected. Maybe we are also feeling motivated to discuss things in the work place that need our attention, or get our finances in order. This is a time to balance your emotional energy with your physical responsibilities. It's not a time to neglect the finer details, although with Mercury in Pisces and retrograde we could have a harder time pin pointing what those finer details might be. It is still possible for us to misinterpret or read a situation so we benefit from trying to see things from other view points while using a healthy level of discernment and common sense.
Moon Square Jupiter in Sagittarius 8:22 AM
We may feel tense about what we want to do vs. what we need to do and there is a potential for us to blow off responsibilities and choose to over indulge or do something fun instead of taking care of business. We need to not do that as the energy of the day wants us to be responsible and practical on our execution of tasks, rather than reactive or self indulgent. Evaluate your value systems and plan your day in line with that.
Moon in Libra
The energy of the full moon from the previous day continues to influence us and we benefit from finding ways to harmonize and balance our minds in peaceful and calming atmospheres. Libra wants to find common ground and peace wherever it radiates, and we may want to cultivate a peaceful energy around ourselves for the day as best we can. We may also enjoy putting a bit of extra effort into our appearance.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Venus in Aquarius Square Mars in Taurus 1:07 AM
The feminine energy of Venus makes a tension causing aspect to the energy of Masculine Mars, but tension can sometimes lead us to create great things. While we may have a difficult time feeling at ease in our minds and bodies, and may even be extra critical of ourselves and others at this time, we may see more clearly some changes that we want to make. This could be in relation to the people we associate with as well as our own personal relationship to ourselves. I predict a lot of us will want to make drastic changes to our physical appearance in the days to come, or do something unusual to our physical surroundings.
Venus in Aquarius Sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius 7:16 AM
This is a harmonious influence that helps us to expand our awareness of our surroundings and value systems. We may feel a large need for intellectual stimulation and growth, as well as a need to get out of the mundane and experience new adventures through education and/or travel.
Moon Void of Course 11:10 AM
Moon enters Scorpio 7:16 PM
The Moon has its fall in Scorpio, and with some of the Venusian energy in the air, we could be feeling insecure and uncomfortable with certain emotions that come up. Be extra self aware of the mental things you are telling yourself during this time and try to see where you can transmute any negativity into positivity. It could be as simple as writing yourself a love letter or gratitude list, or writing things you love about others in your life as a way of reminding yourself to have gratitude for the people in your corner.
Strong Aspects During the Day PDT
Moon Square Pluto in Capricorn 7:29 AM
Tension in the early morning arises and we may have a hard time getting things done or feeling confident.
Moon Sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius 8:59 AM
This energy is more harmonious and allows for us to expand into new states of awareness about our emotional process and how we are affected by our reactions to others. Find a way to be more light hearted and work some fun into your morning to break up the tension from the earlier transit.
Moon Trine Venus in Aquarius 11:10 AM
We may feel more peaceful and tranquil during the hours of this transit and we also may enjoy connecting with a loved one in conversation about our ideas and belief systems. This is a social energy and we may feel extra chatty.
Moon Opposition Uranus in Taurus 8:38 PM
We may experience sudden emotional shifts or changes around our perceptions of our physical world and what we wish to do. It is possible that we could feel victimized or resistant towards changes we know we need to make, but it is important that we look at this as an opportunity for growth.
