Mars in Pisces surpasses Saturn’s checkpoint on Thursday. This planetary pairing can unleash, unhinge, or diffuse. It draws attention to the many celebrities who are not performing and the many prominent folk (Justin Trudeau included) on the absentee list for Trump’s inauguration. Coinciding with Mars/Saturn, the sun’s trek into Aquarius stokes the social and political climate. Protesters and supporters alike look to the inauguration as an ultimate opportunity to be seen, heard, and taken seriously.
Thursday is optimized regarding last-minute finalizations, pushing past it, uncovering a better solution, and/or blowing off steam. The Aquarius sun sparks a fresh diversion or a new infusion. Will the big event get out of control? There’s so much we can’t see, so much we don’t know, so much that is up for grabs. Noting Mars in Pisces, the sun in Aquarius, and a shrewd Scorpio moon ruling both the undercurrents and undercover operations, we can’t rule anything out. Still, Trump is usually one to pull it off and keep going. Venus, Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto are in good collaboration and aiming to make the most of it. You should too. Friday/Saturday, get your sexy on. Don’t have a lover to share the weekend with? No problem. Something else will readily captivate or claim you.
Sunday/Monday, the moon in Sagittarius takes aim on something next, something more. Contracts (actual or karmic) are up for renewal or for breaking. Tuesday through Thursday, take care of business. Aim to finish it off or to get yourself better set up. We are only a few days away from a new moon and a fast-track cycle.
March 20 – April 19
Haven’t been able to bend your mind around it, put your finger on it, say your piece, or get the message across? You will be able to do so now, especially so thanks to Mars getting over the hump with Saturn on Thursday. You’ll also gain a fresh boost from the sun in Aquarius. You’ll hit a smooth stride through mid next week.
April 20 – May 20
Perhaps you’ve had strong inklings about it, but even so, Mars/Saturn could let the cat out of the bag in some unforeseen way. On another note, you could run out of excuses or steam for carrying on. Come clean; change an attitude, your mind, or something more. It’s the right time to push the refresh button or to dive into something new.
May 21 – June 21
Thursday moves you past a hurdle. Mars/Saturn can diffuse the tension, end the wait, or fill in an important blank. Friday/Saturday, the follow-up is on an ease-up. Work, repairs, or healing should move along readily and well. Sunday/Monday, take a look at it; scout around; consider options; stretch your mind and your body. Tuesday/Wednesday, get down to business.
June 21 – July 22
Feel like you are coming up empty? Uncertain where to go looking or how to get yourself launched? Sometimes necessary change can feel too daunting to take on, but you have to begin somewhere! Simply start a research process. As of Thursday, more viable options, avenues, or product will start making their presences better known. Friday/Saturday, turn up your ambition or your sexy.
July 22 – August 22
Let it go; get it off your chest; free it up; free yourself. Clear it away and make room for something or someone new. Whether through necessity or welcomed, Thursday’s Mars/Saturn is good for a release or an unwind. Look to the Aquarius sun to refresh your social life and to stimulate fresh interest. Friday through Monday flows well. Tuesday/Wednesday calls for more effort.
August 22 – September 22
As of Thursday, you should start to feel an ease-up. Through Saturday, you’ll add up the facts and figures and read people and situations with sharp insight. Make the most of your one-on-one time. Loaning you added sway and savvy, the Scorpio moon helps you make a significant impact. Put your all into it Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday, slow and reasonable do it best.
September 22 – October 23
Thursday through Saturday keeps you well-occupied. Don’t expect to skim or stay on neutral. You can get more deeply involved or pulled into more than you anticipated to begin with. Going deeper with your special someone could be healing for both of you. Sunday/Monday, keep it light and on the upbeat. Tuesday/Wednesday, less is more.
October 23 – November 21
Looking for something fresh to spark it for you? It comes naturally, especially through Saturday. The sun’s entrance into Aquarius, starting Thursday, is good for a personal reboot. Make it productive, romantic, or relaxed; the weekend is yours to own. Make good use of your time in the smooth, rolling week ahead. Aim to get yourself on track and better organized.
November 21 – December 21
In the mood to hide out, escape, or indulge? Take the next couple of days to get away from it all. Immerse yourself where it soothes you, inspires you, or quenches the thirst. Friday/Saturday are good for movies, music, or romance. The Aquarius sun boosts you with fresh inspiration and energy. Sunday/Monday, your creativity, showmanship, and timing are at their best.
December 21 – January 19
Don’t know how to play it, what to say, or how to schedule your time? Keep loose and let things shape up on their own. Past Thursday, the stars are on an ease-up. For the most part, Friday through Monday should prove smooth going. Tuesday through Thursday requires more from you, but it’s easily handled.
January 20 – February 18
Your birthday month can produce something significant right off the bat or it can be on low ebb to start, but give it another week and Mars and the rest of the gang will hit full steam ahead. Friday/Saturday, throw your weight around; call the shots. Sunday/Monday, take aim on something or someone fresh. Tuesday/Wednesday, stay creative.
February 18 – March 20
Thursday gets you over the hump, lets you off the hook, or helps you to release what’s been bottled up inside you. Aim for romance, get industrious, or indulge yourself; Friday/Saturday are your best days to make the most of it. The moon in Scorpio keeps feeling your way along just fine. Sunday/Monday, look/think/plan ahead.
