It’s the 4rd week of the year and the card of the week is the 4 of Pentacles. The repeating 4s suggests that the theme of this is stability week. Mercury Retrograde ends on 1/25/16 so we’ll see order returning to our lives. Communication will be clearer, delays won’t be as common, and it will be safe to sign contracts and make long term investments again. Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn made us question matters of stability and finance in our lives. Look back over the past 3 weeks and reflect on everything that’s happened. If you faced hardships or loss, how did you deal with it? The Capricorn is a sign of climbing and this retrograde called us to become the goat keep climbing even if we wanted to give up. You’ve made it through and you’re at the top of the mountain now. Look back and be proud of yourself for overcoming the challenges. It’s made you stronger.

The transits for the evening will bring some disruptions as they appear to have a domino effect.

Like the 2 of Wands, you know your potential but you also know it is not time to act on it if roadblocks have appeared. Moon square Mercury at 3:11 PM PST may bring confusion with communication.

Mantra: There are few obstacles for plans well laid.
Saturday 1/30/16 Knight of Wands

There is the potential for soul mates to meet today but that potential is accompanied with the equal potential for illusion and deception in love.

The number of the day is 4, encouraging you to stay grounded when you may want to give in to illusions.
Mantra: Look before you leap.
