Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report
by Starlene Breiter & Nikki Rich
The moon starts off in Scorpio today but quickly changes signs as she moves into Sagittarius at 1:56 AM eastern time. Moon in Sagittarius has a sense of adventure and wants to explore!
At 3:49 AM the moon and Mercury make a sextile aspect. This helps our thoughts and feelings be in sync. Often our heart and head are at odds but not this morning!
The moon makes a square to Neptune which perfects at 4:49 PM. Dreamy … sentimental … head in the clouds … all of these describe this feeling. With the square we might wish for something to be true that isn’t really true. Under such an aspect we can deceive ourselves so be careful.
The ladies of the sky meet at 7:54 PM when the moon and Venus conjoin. This has a feminine and social feeling … like girlfriends braiding each others hair or going for coffee together. So it’s a good night to hang out with a friend!
A stone I would recommend working with today is amethyst, Amethyst helps develop wisdom as well as promotes healing on all levels.
An essential oil to experiment with today is patchouli which promotes positivity and vitality.
The moon and Saturn are conjunct in the sign of Sagittarius today, which is exact at 12:27 AM EST. This can have us feeling a little constricted. Things are serious when Saturn is involved, and in this case it means that our emotions, our mood is serious. But remember that the moon’s influences are subtle and changeable and that this one will pass soon enough.
The next aspect exacts at 7:22 AM EST and is when the sun in Capricorn comes to square Uranus in Aries. This can have us making some mistakes, or being overly excitable. So try to pace yourself and not go overboard with anything right now. This creates some tension that will pass in a day or two.
The moon then makes a trine to Uranus at 9:29 AM EST. This can mean some little or even big surprise is on its way to you. This is a nice energy and can be highly inspirational for letting your emotions out, so have fun and if you didn’t get some sort of surprise. Then maybe you should have some fun surprising someone else!
The moon meets Venus at 7:54 PM EDT. The celestial ladies are together and this is a nice blending of energy if we can the intensity to a calm and peaceful manner. Under an influence like this, in Sagittarius, we might feel like looking outside our usual realm of beauty and look to new and different things. Simply focus on things you feel passionately in love with and you are all good!
An essential oil to use today is lemon which promotes clarity of thought.
A stone to work with today is rose quartz which helps to soften our hearts and open up to a deeper, more spiritual love.
The moon is in Capricorn all day today and isn’t particularly interested in moods. It is more focused on being productive. The moon in Capricorn can have a very dry sense of humor at times. So have fun and use your sense of humor today! And get something productive done!
The moon makes a sextile to Neptune that exacts at 12:07 AM EST. This is a good time for daydreaming, watching movies, and wandering aimlessly. So hopefully you got anything that you needed to get done finished before this aspect peaks! For those of us that will be sleeping during this time, this is a great time to rest and dream. You might even want to journal your dreams down when you awaken.
In the afternoon at 1:40 PM EST the moon conjoins Pluto and the calming energy of the morning has grown into discontent. Moon-Pluto is an aspect that urges us to confront our darkest feelings and this is not an easy process. We are uncomfortable with facing our shadow side but this is what happens under this aspect.
The moon makes a square to Uranus at 3:58 PM EST. This aspect may make us feel a little restless. If you have some excitable energy to spend, go do something inspirational with yourself, or better yet prepare yourself for the new moon that happens a little later in the day.
The last aspect is when the moon and sun conjunct in the sky, thus creating a new moon. The energy of the new moon in Capricorn has us thinking about our status in life. Are you where you want to be with your life? What goals do you want to accomplish for yourself that you have yet to begin? This would be an excellent day for you to do a little new moon ritual with yourself where you sort out those Capricorn things you want to incorporate into your life over the next 6 months. How about examining your “business” self and figure out if you are on the path you want to be on. If not, then take some inventory for yourself to begin those new things after Mercury turns direct in a couple of weeks. Unless of course you have already begun some of the things you want to accomplish, then keep going. It is best though to wait to begin new things when Mercury is in its direct moving station. You might also take some time to freshen up your environment and clean or declutter your home! That is a great thing to do on the new moon anytime!
A good stone to use today is citrine which allows us to focus on our goals.
A good essential oil to use today is basil which allows us to stay motivated.
We start the day with the moon in business-minded Capricorn. The moon in Capricorn is probably the most practical moon of all … especially in terms of planning and execution.
The moon makes a trine to Jupiter which perfects at 3:33 AM eastern time. This aspect gives us a feeling of generosity. We feel good and we want to share that good feeling with other.
At 12:39 PM the moon conjoins Mercury and then goes void-of-course. The moon-Mercury conjunction in Capricorn is like a business meeting: are we all in the same page here? Yes? Then great, we are all set. A meeting of the thoughts and emotions is a good thing, and in Capricorn it all seems very sensible.
The void-of-course moon does not last too long today since the moon makes an ingress into eccentric Aquarius at 3:22 PM. The moon in Aquarius sometimes comes off as distracted but the reason for that is because Aquarius is paying more attention to what is going on inside their own heads rather than what is happening in the real world.
For our final aspect the moon squares Mars at 10:31 PM. A moon-Mars square is like an argument. There are two different sides and they collide. The best thing to do if you do feel upset under an aspect like this is work out some of that aggression in a healthy way like going for a work out, shoveling the snow off the driveway, or something else physical that allows you to channel this energy constructively. The alternative is to stew in your anger and I don’t know about you but I prefer not to stew.
A stone to try working with today is ammonite. Ammonite is a fossil that has s spiral structure and is often used to help with construction of plans or buildings or anything but very good for the Capricorn energy. Ammonite is also helpful for working on past lives since it is in fact a remnant of the past and the spiral shape is conducive to working with time.
An essential oil to use today is petitgrain which helps revitalize us and restore our balance … always welcome but especially under Mercury retrograde!
The moon is in quirky and rebellious Aquarius all day today. This is a good time to sort yourself out of that New Years rut you may have found yourself in, after all it is Monday. If you started some things in the beginning of the year (like those new years resolutions), only to watch those things fall to the wayside and your old habits return. The Aquarius moon can help you shake things up and get started again. It is better not to start new things, but pick up the things you started before January 5 when Mercury went into retrograde.
The afternoon is when the moon comes to a sextile with Saturn which exacts at 12:35 PM EST. This aspect has us feeling confident and like we can give some good advice. It would be a good time to get a reading from us if you have some questions! This aspect is supportive for those that want to help others in need too. So if you can do something helpful for someone now would be the time to do it! Random acts of kindness are always nice under a moon Saturn sextile.
The moon makes a sextile to Venus which peaks at 5:59 PM EST. This is great energy for a date night or a family night. Time spent with loved ones. Not ooey-gooey time together but like board games or something else that allows you to spend time together and have fun, too!
Lastly the moon makes a sextile to Uranus which peaks at 8:09 PM EST. this aspect enhances the Aquarian energy. We feel independent and are not afraid of doing our own thing in our own way. Enjoy a spark of fun this evening if you can, even if it is something as simple as a practical joke or bit of laughter.
A good gemstone to work with today is chalcopyrite, the “stone of the mystic”. Perfect for helping you vibe with the Aquarian energies of today and allowing yourself to feel joy and connection to higher spiritual realms.
A good essential oil to use today is bergamot which supports us by allowing us to be emotionally optimistic. It comes from a citrus tree therefore is helps us feel joy, while helping anyone that is going through emotional turmoil.
We have a day long void-of-course moon today. We start with the moon in Aquarius and it does not enter Pisces until 6:53 PM eastern time so that is most of the day with the moon void-of-course. They say “nothing will come of it” referring to things started under the void-of-course moon, so today is best for finishing up old tasks and clearing out things that no longer serve us. These tasks are also good for the ongoing Mercury retrograde so we should be strongly emphasizing fixing old problems today instead of trying to find new problems!
When the moon does finally enter Pisces at 6:53 PM there is a subtle shift. Pisces isn’t really a “go-getter” so this isn’t a huge influx of energy … we are more likely to go with the flow and continue with the dominant energy of the day. Pisces is really the most easy going of all the signs.
Venus makes a lovely trine to Uranus which perfects at 7:11 PM. This is a really nice combination that makes us feel like doing something unusual … let’s go dancing, or better yet let’s dance around in our house and act really very silly! Just getting out of your regular routine will feel good. This is a combination that suggests a love interest, too, so if you put yourself out there you may be able to meet someone exciting tonight! But with Uranus in the picture this is likely a short term connection, but none-the-less fun!
A great stone to try working with today is apatite which helps to dissolve any aloofness or negativity.
An essential oil to try today is vetiver which aids us in attaining spiritual calmness and balance.
