Blessings mystics and seekers!

Wow, the first week of January was a doozy to say the least. I can’t say I am surprised. As I am sure most of you who follow astrology saw, the day the Capitol take over happened, was also the day that Mars finally made its way from Aries into the fixed earth sign of Taurus. As our political and social climate continues to escalate, our astrological transits are guiding the story along as if it was written in the stars for years.

On a personal level, last week on Friday when Mercury and Mars squared off, the main pipe running water to my house burst. Because I live in a small rural town, getting a plumber out here in a timely manner is not really an option. I have had no running water in my house since Friday. Hopefully things will be fixed today (Monday), but seeing the transits of the week, I am not going to expect things to be solved so quickly. This is one way that astrology can be fun, but also a disappointing tool for self reflection. Mercury is in my house of money, and Mars is in the house that rules my home. So it’s not a huge surprise that something happened on that day, but it still surprised me!

Of course the Mercury lesson came from how my husband and I navigated our communication around the financial aspects of dealing with the problem. Trying to find the most cost effective way, while also not wanting to hire someone who isn't reputable in the community. Because I know that these areas of my chart are going to be activated with difficult transits all week, I am expecting there to be more issues with the pipe and for it to cost more than we are hoping. Having astrology to help me plan for a worse case scenario, helps me not get my hopes up. Just an example of how some of these transits affect us on a personal and mundane level.

This week is no different when it comes to drama. We have so many transits involving chaotic and over the top energy, we are likely to watch more blasphemy ensue in the week ahead. On a personal level, we could feel like things are extra hard or frustrating right now.
