Full Moon Phase
If a situation strongly engages your emotions today, you will want to stop and gauge what is going on before you leap into a reaction. Today’s energy requires skillful maneuvering, not knee-jerk responses. In fact, we need to pay attention to what is going on in the background instead of what is obvious in the foreground. Is your core fear being engaged? A choir of messages and information is on its way as Mercury comes up to make a conjunction with Pluto over the next few days. Mercury-Pluto conjunctions often deliver messages that are hard to take, but this time around they will send information to help us align with choices that will make our lives happier in certain ways. These planets will clear up situations that have been confusing for us. Also, a look ahead tells us that the next major astrological event is Mars turning retrograde on January 23. Mars will be retrograde until April 14, during which time it will be more challenging to move forward on things – like a car stuck in neutral. If there is something you need to take care of so that it is in place for forward movement, take steps now to put those plans into action. Situations will re-work themselves behind the scenes and then jump forward when Mars goes direct, but the interim will require the skills of going inside ourselves and taking the stance of wise observer and holding ground like a sturdy tree. We can prepare in advance now by initiating action before the retrograde begins.
