Mars enters Taurus, Your Astrocast 1/4-1/10

Blessings mystics and seekers!

Our first full week of January is upon us and boy do we start it out with a bang! This week overall is a huge energy shift. We have Mars moving into Taurus on Wednesday, which alone feels huge. Mars has been in its ruling sign of Aries since the end of June 2020. While Mars in Aries helps for us to power through challenges and help us assert our will into areas of our lives that require a boost, it can also add a lot of aggression and frustration into the mix. For me on a personal level, Mars in Aries helped me push through the rest of the year. It gave me that boost in energy I needed that I felt I had lacked for the beginning of the pandemic. It helped me get into boss mode. I appreciated our Mars in Aries time, because it was a hard year, and I feel that boost of energy was much needed. Mars will be in the fixed sign of Taurus until March 3rd.

Come Friday, Mercury our planet of communication moves into Aquarius, and Venus our planet of relationship moves into Capricorn.

Mercury in Aquarius could have us feeling a need to connect with the collective on a more personal level. Our perceptions of community may have shifted quite a bit over the last year and we could feel more of a sense of duty to involve ourselves in politics, community outreach programs, and conversations when it comes to social change.

Mercury making some harmonious aspects to Saturn and Jupiter may help for us to expand our perceptions of reality and what is possible for us at this time.

Venus in the practical earth sign of Capricorn making a harmonious aspect to Mars in Taurus soon after, could have us working on practical matters when it comes to our financial and work areas of our lives. This is a good time to make plans and get things for the future in order as best we can.

Venus in the sign of Capricorn also tends to learn more into traditional value systems in regard to relationships. People who have Venus in Capricorn in their birth charts often enjoy being courted in traditional ways. We could during this time reflect on ways that tradition is comforting, and ways it is restrictive and outdated. This blend of Capricorn and Aquarian energy hitting the frequency of January will have us questioning what modes of reality do we save, and what do we do away with? On all fronts.
