Morning Star: Daily Astrology for January 22, 2015

This morning we wake up to the Moon in Pisces. Wait a minute. Wake up? Do we ever really fully do that under a Pisces Moon? Well, it looks like we may be forced to under this one. Her first aspect is a sobering square to Saturn in Sagittarius at 12:21 PM. The boss says, “SNAP OUT OF DREAMLAND AND FOCUS!” Ooooh, bother......

But, you know what, by 5:29 PM, the Moon is conjunct Neptune and we could be tipping a few back as we forget all about what the boss person said. “We are off the clock bucko. You can't boss us around anymore. Therefore NAPTIME! Or beer-thirty.” Or, washout. Yeah, there's that potential too. Tides are rising.

At 9:11 PM, the Moon is conjunct Mars in Pisces which could make us feel angry for no specific reason at all. Or, it could make us horny. Or, it could have us really motivated to do...nothing, except finally lay down for a good night's sleep and forget about this day in its entirety.

Things begin to firm up overnight and into the morning hours of tomorrow with the Sun meeting Saturn by sextile at midnight and the Moon moving in to meet Pluto by sextile at 6:14 AM. Today could be a down and drifty day. But, we do find some traction tomorrow and are able to power through the last day of our work week with a bit more clarity. Plus, after the Moon meets with Pluto, she is Void until entering Aries at 8:32 AM on the 24th.

Today, though, focus and ambition could be lax. We could be easily distracted and our minds may drift everywhere except for where they should be drifting. We could be called on our watery-ness either from an outside authority figure or by ourselves with the square from Saturn. It all comes out in the wash eventually though. To navigate this day and reach for it's highest potential, try to remain grounded and focused upon the work at hand. Then, deal with all the emotionality of whatever is pinging at you later this evening. Get a good night's sleep and be ready to kick this week to the curb tomorrow. On top of that, whatever harshness the square from Saturn may bring to you early in this day, forget about it.

Let it go. Water under the bridge. We do have the energy accessible to do that this evening with the conjunction of the Moon to Neptune and then to Mars. Call it transcending, ignoring or act like a duck. A duck? Yes. Let the water roll off your back...let tensions go just as they present themselves while allowing none of the water to stick or saturate you. K, so your “boss” was an asshole today. Cheers, mine too.He or she is probably dealing with some emotional stuff that is affecting them today too. Let's drink to that and sleep on it.
