It’s the 2nd week of the year and the card of the week is the Ace of Swords. This week starts off with a double shot of lucky transits on Monday and Tuesday but things have the potential to literally sour overnight as Saturn, Uranus and Mercury all get together for the last half of the week. The year is still young so if you don’t want to get off on the wrong foot this year, be very careful with what you do and how you react. Two is a number of partnerships so remember that there is strength in numbers. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. We also have a lunar eclipse in Leo coming our way at the end of the month so don’t be surprised if things get intense for a while.
Mantra: Keep your nose clean.

Mercury conjunct Saturn at 11:03 PM PST is a transit that reminds you that the situation is still quite delicate after the events of the past few days. Although it may hurt, it might be best to say goodbye to someone for a short while if things don’t look like they’re going to get any better any time soon. Even if you have a hard time saying what you need to say, it must be said or there will be no end to the senseless conflict.
