The week starts off on a subdued note as your desire for taking action mixes with Neptune, the planet of dreams.
The fire and water combine with a smoldering quality that can leave you feeling like you’re lost at sea, at times. Enjoy the let down and relaxation response that can come with Mars in Pisces. It’s not a time to push for what you want. Allow yourself to receive the bounty of the sea. In mysterious and magical ways your desires will be met.
BEST MONEY DAYS this week are January 3rd and 6th. Best Money Days are days when the collective celestial events bring greater than usual opportunities. This may not translate into direct and immediate cash in your pocket, but potential for increase in your future prospects. Of course when these days are talking harmoniously with your personal stars the increase multiplies exponentially.

Astro Energy Report Highlights
December 31st Mars conjuncts Neptune at 9º Pisces. Until the Aquarius New Moon on January 27th Mars’s feisty nature is engulfed by the over abundance of watery depths as it transits through the sign of Pisces. Neptune rules Pisces and puts out Mars’s fire. Your usual drive to take action could go down. It’s a great time to go with the flow of events and conserve your energy. You can feel tired, or low energy now, so get your beauty rest and take long hot sea salt baths. Essential oils to use at this time: vetiver, galbanum, myrrh, lemongrass.
On January 2nd Venus moves into Pisces until the 4th of February when she enters the sign of Aries. Venus enjoys the energy of Pisces and is at home here. The ruler of Pisces, Neptune, is considered the higher octave of the Venus love energies.
On January 3rd Mercury Retrograde at 0º Capricorn Sextiles Venus in Pisces. Venus and Mercury really get on with each other. Both can be flirtatious and love romantic gestures. With Mercury Retrograde something you enjoy may return to you now.
On January 4th Mercury dips back into Sagittarius for a bit in its Retrograde sojourn. With Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius and both Mars and Venus now in Pisces this can be a time when you are ripe with dreams and inspirations coming to consciousness from deep within you.
On January 5th we have the first quarter waxing moon at 15º Aries. The quarter moon forms a T-Square with Jupiter in Libra, the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. Next week at the Cancer Full Moon we have a 3-day period when a Cardinal Grand Cross will be activated with these same planets. Today may give you a foreshadowing of what you need to release now for a smoother transition during the time of the Cancer Full Moon next week.
On January 6th the Sun conjuncts Pluto at 17º Capricorn. This is an empowerment of your Self. There’s power to create unleashed with this joining. Something new is birthed. Check this area of your birth chart to see what area of your life this is happening for you. There is tension mounting in this area, too. If you’ve ever gone through labor and delivery to birth a newborn then you’ll have a good understanding what is afoot for you now.
Emerald is a power gemstone for the Aries First Quarter Moon. Emeralds bring success and love into your life. Its brilliant green vibration opens the heart and universal heart. It has a soothing effect on your emotions. Emerald helps transmute lower negative forces and assists you to take positive actions that result in positive outcomes. Emerald strengthens your character and helps you overcome hardships through the power of Divine Love.
VOID OF COURSE MOON PERIODS
The moon represents your emotional needs. Your emotions fluctuate with the moon as it moves through its 28-day cycle around the zodiac from new moon to full and back to new. Notice how the moon’s placement in the zodiac affects your mood and emotions. Essential oils can help stabilize your mind and emotions. Generally earthy scents have the most harmonizing and stabilizing effects on the emotions. Aromatic scents like Galbanum and Vetiver help stabilize the emotions, as well Bergamot, Spikenard and Sandalwood.
These are great periods for taking it easy and going with the flow of events and completing projects. During Void of Course Moons your emotional body is going through a period of processing and integrating your recent experiences. You naturally clear out your emotions during these periods. Doing things that helps with this natural process are especially helpful now, i.e. relaxation, yoga, movement, hot baths with sea salts and essential oils, focused breathing.
Void of Course Moon periods are not good for starting new projects, or launching new ventures, or having meetings (if you want to achieve anything), or signing contracts and making agreements as it’s less likely anything will come of any agreement, or it will be sluggish and slow to start.
For your New and Full Moon Rituals make sure the Moon is not Void of Course and in aspect to another celestial body when doing your ritual for best results.
