Astrology Forecast: January 28, 2019, through February 3, 2019

“For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.”Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike


Monday, January 28, 2019:
The Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio brings focused concentration, deep emotional depth, and connection. Embrace the potential of powerful intensity. Resist the pull toward obsessive brooding or vindictiveness. Pay attention to your instinctive motivations and make sure you are approaching others without a hidden agenda.
While the Moon moves through Scorpio you are more consciously aware of what you keep hidden even from yourself. Open your eyes and look into any dark corners, examine your deep mysteries and secrets. Bring light and breath into those parts of yourself that you or the culture have deemed unacceptable. Offer love and healing to what is unexamined.
Remember that the very best soil for your garden is that which has been composed of garbage & shit. The same goes for your deepest and most frightening depths. When you til the soil of your darkness, the best of who you are is free to grow and bring healing to yourself and others.

The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 5:39 PM EST until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday morning. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

Tuesday, January 29, 2019:
At 9:33 AM EST the Moon enters the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius where she will remain until Thursday evening. As the Moon leaves Scorpio and entering Sagittarius you can expect your emotions to engage on a more positive enthusiastic note. While in Sagittarius we seek experiences that expand our understanding of the world. Release the intensity of the past few days and kick up your heels. Avoid the tendency to impulsiveness and don’t be condescending to others. Everyone has their view, make sure to keep your eyes/ ears open and allow understanding. Stepping into the shoes of another and seeing their world view will make you a better person and greatly expand your understanding.
At 9:51 PM EST the Sun and Mercury meet at 9 degrees Aquarius. This is the midpoint of the current Mercury cycle, the superior conjunction. You can think of this similarly to how you would think of a Full Moon, it is the culmination of the cycle between the Sun and Mercury that began on November 27th, 2018 at the inferior conjunction. Think about what you may have begun at that time that is now illuminated. Speak the truth as you see it.
The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course until she enters Sagittarius at 9:33 AM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.
Wednesday, January 30, 2019:
The Moon continues through Sagittarius encouraging ongoing exploration and understanding. You may have a clear sense of your own wisdom, but remember that not everyone sees the world through your filter. Don’t push your beliefs on others unless it is clear that your ideas are welcome and doing the work of expanding consciousness. If there is resistance, listen carefully to what the other person has to say. They have a perspective that is valid as well. You may learn something new and unexpected.
At 2:07 PM EST with Neptune square the Moon, take a nap, let your imagination run wild, listen to music, or dream. At 7:04 PM EST with the Moon joining Jupiter plan a trip, play with friends, go to a show! Invite a friend to join you, someone outside your normal circle of friends. Expand your view. This is a lovely evening for connection.

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?  Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything.  Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances. Make your appointment today!



Thursday, January 31, 2019:
Saturn sextile Neptune is one of 2019s most important aspects. Due to the retrograde cycles, we encounter it once here at the end of January, a second time in mid-June, and finally, in early November, it is active (peaking and ebbing) throughout this period. To me, this speaks of practical energy coming to the service of expanding spirituality, imagination, and vision. It also suggests a time when releasing an addiction of any sort will be supported.
A door of awareness opens allowing suffering to be tackled in a new way. With Saturn’s involvement integrity, facing reality, and responsibilities offer opportunities to release suffering and develop human compassion. We do not own our suffering. We all partake in human suffering. Suffering teaches us compassion as we understand that we each suffer as we all suffer. 
At 7:48 PM EST the Moon enters Capricorn ushering in more serious emotional states for the next few days. Plan plenty of alone time over the next few days to work with steadfast focus. These days are for deepening your inner adult and developing mastery of your life.
The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 5:33 PM EST until she enters Capricorn at 7:48 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.

Mars square Pluto (exact at 10:19 PM EST) is a major statement suggesting issues of power, determination, and possibly destruction. Where in your life do you need to develop a more powerful position or accomplish something that takes great determination? If you can identify something that began at in late April 2018 it may help you understand what action you need to take now. Some action is required now, however, do not run roughshod over others, avoid underhanded tactics, and ruthlessness. Can you allow others to stand by your side and benefit from what you create?
The Capricorn Moon asks that you develop deep personal integrity, life will give you an opportunity to work on that now. Over the next few days, spend time alone, contemplate the direction of your accomplishments. If life does not provide the luxury of time alone, be sure to offer kindness to those around you. That will help you to avoid pessimistic thinking.


Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.” ~ Og Mandino

Saturday, February 2, 2019:
The Capricorn Moon may feel heavy and uncomfortable as she joins with both serious restrictive Saturn and obsessive Pluto early in the day. It will be interesting to see how frustration may mix with the high stimulation of the trine aspect formed between Venus and Uranus at 6:41 PM EST. When Venus and Uranus speak to each other you can anticipate a desire for something new and innovative regarding love and partnership. If you and a partner have fallen into any kind of a rut, this is the time to break out of that rut. Make your Saturday night date something you have never done before, or scrap the date altogether and spend the evening on your own. There is no doubt that freedom calls to you. Your most unique unusual side wants room for full expression. Experiment with new ways of interacting with your loved ones. The same old, same old just will not satisfy.
Insisting that nothing change is likely to backfire, so allow change, even if it is unsettling, at least for the weekend. New relationships can start quickly at this time, although those started now will most likely not stand the test of time.

Sunday, February 3, 2019:
With the Moon in Aquarius, your emotions are on a search for change and innovation. You are not satisfied with the status quo and with Mercury sextile Jupiter you have plenty to say about the direction you are moving. This is a great day to engage with interesting ideas and seek ways to communicate your most unique and unusual beliefs. Connecting, negotiating, and making plans for future adventures comes easily. It is also easy and advantageous to get excited about subjects you would like to study. Your level of curiosity is high, interest and conversation come without effort. Enjoy
At 5:20 PM EST Venus, the planet of love and beauty enters the serious sign of Capricorn where she will remain through this Valentine’s season, entering Aquarius on March 1st. Ultimately Venus is about what we most value in our lives. This includes not only your love relationships but also finances, resources, and all things of beauty. With Venus in Capricorn, you are able to recognize the seriousness of your choices in partnerships and in how you use your resources. You may find that you need to choose more wisely. You are willing to invest more effort into creating the partnerships that will truly support your life. It is time to consider what is required to build long-lasting love, take responsibility, and make the effort at long last.
The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 5:53 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:04 AM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.


“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach” 1980


* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
