Moon in practical, administrative, “make it happen” Capricorn encourages us to get it off our desks. Ship it today if you can; tomorrow there’s a Moon void that can toss a twist into your efforts, or render them of no consequence. We are in the dark side of the Moon phase; New Moon arrives at 9:31PM on Tuesday. You may feel a bit of restlessness or listlessness — especially tomorrow — sensing a new cycle is just around the corner, but hasn’t quite materialized. Spend today wrapping up whatever you can of an unusually intense month.
Unless your unique horoscope is being directly affected by one of the planetary heavies, you could be carried away by the optimistic, opinionated, rowdy energy suggested by today’s Moon in Sagittarius, in effect from Friday AM until 9:04AM NY time. Fun, fun, fun! You can get physical, get outdoors, build a snowman, take a gamble or a gambol…or any activity or experience that broadens your horizons.
Sunday AM you may note a more serious tone, as Moon enters “make-it-happen” Capricorn, just after being jolted by rebellious Uranus and expansive Jupiter, now in Aries. Are the natives restless or what? (Watch Sunday’s headlines). The mood may become even more intense as the day progresses, revealing secrets and/or demanding answers to probing questions in an effort to gain control. Try applying the intensity and enterprising spirit to an empowering creative project instead of the person who just happens to be sitting next to you.
An additional note on Saturn’s retrograde through 11-18 degrees of Libra (see the forecast written for 1/26): if you were born Oct – Dec 1981 or May- Aug 1982, you will be feeling this transit more intensely than most, in what is known as a Saturn return. This is a critical time in your life development; everyone goes through it around age 28/29. Pay attention to the sense of urgency you’re likely to be feeling. In what ways are you intent on establishing yourself in the material world? Are you thinking of changing careers? Getting married? Going back to school? What is the reach for ambition?
If you were born between Dec 1951- April 1952 or between Aug – Nov of 1952, you are also having a Saturn return. At this point in life, you may find yourself wanting to turn away from the material world. Having realized ambition during the past 28 years, nourishing the soul may now become more important. This can be a very good thing, even if other things have to be let go.
