Friday 1/27/17 Tower
New Moon in Aquarius 4:07 PM PST
Mercury Retrograde Post Shadow Period Ends
The Tower appears when life changes in a flash. Many times, the events brought on by the Tower are so shocking, they leave your life permanently changed. I’ve also seen this card predict bad weather and natural disasters. Whatever happens today, things will be shaken up and know that you will not face what comes next alone. Venus square Saturn at 9:50 AM PST may leave you feeling cold, lonely and depressed but don’t let your fears separate you from others. Reach out.

Lucky Jupiter goes retrograde next month and will bring opportunities for abundance and success so get your head in the right place and set goals that will push you forward. Mars comes home to Aries at 9:39 PM PST where He will stay until 3/9/17. When Mars is in Aries, all the qualities of Mars ruled Aries are amplified. Aries is the first Zodiac sign and signals new beginnings. It is like the germination of a seed and holds all the potential to come. Aries is adventurous, courageous and even a little reckless. However, this raw power can go to people’s heads and make people feel egotistical and selfish. Since Mars also rules the Tower and it’s New Moon, these new beginnings will be drastic. The number of the day is 2, reminding us that going through trails is easier together than alone.
Mantra: I’ll be your shelter from the storm.

Sunday 1/29/16 5 of Swords
Moon Void of Course in Aquarius
Moon Enters Pisces 8:10 AM PST
The 5 of Swords is a card that appears when everyone loses. Traditionally, there are two men on the card. One is crying and the other is walking away with a smug look on his face. Although the “winner” thinks he got the best of the other man, he actually lost a friend and his life will be colder because of it. The Moon is void of course in Aquarius until 8:10 AM PST when it enters the mysterious, flowy sign of Pisces. When the Moon is void of course, it’s best to wrap things up. In this case, it’s recommended that you get conflicts over with before they start or it will end badly for everyone. Mercury conjunct Pluto at 12:21 PM PST bring intense mental activity. You will have the power to get to the bottom of things and sway people to your side. But those who resist you will fight back with full force so choose your words wisely. The number of the day is 4, reminding us that every conflict stems from lack of balance.
Mantra: Winning isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
