Aquarian energy rules the beginning of the week and with the Sun making a wonderful trine to Jupiter what a great time to act on that inspiration you have, or take a chance on a new project or idea. Have fun with this energy, as almost as this is ending Saturn is coming in and squaring the Sun. Saturn and the Sun together in general indicate a low vitality, a slowness and since this square is in the fixed modality, meaning it affects the fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, the most you can find yourself getting stuck, if that wonderful creative energy first thing this week is not used you may just get stuck in your head with all the reasons you cannot bring to fruition that great idea.
The planet Jupiter is going direct this week, Jupiter is a planet of expansion and optimism so the direct movement should ramp up good feelings, down deep we know all of us and the world in general are evolving into a better place. That knowing allows us a little freedom in the sense we know our fears and limitations are being over come so its time to take a chance, since Jupiter is also sextiling the planet Uranus the universe is scream out at us try something new and different, push through your fears and hesitations. Jupiter is in the sign of Gemini and Uranus is the sign of Aries so this is a great time to say what you really feel without causing as much distress as you might at other times. Speak your own truth and find your own center it will pay off in your feelings of freedom.
As we enter the month of February the winds of change are in the air, Mars is getting ready to move into the sign of Pisces, not a strong placement for Mars, but a placement that may allow some of the energetic hostilely that has been running wild the past couple of years to rest. It can indicate a lethargic attitude, but with all the sharp energy the Universe has been sending us this will be a breath of fresh air a time of rest. The negative side of this energy is acting in a passive aggressive way, or doing things in secret that later come out and cause issues. The mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are the most affected by this. It can also indicate some unsettled weather during the month of February. As Mars enters Pisces Venus enters the sign of Aquarius, we may find more feminine energy making a difference for this time period, Mars is masculine Venus is feminine, meaning the gentler sex may have a lot more say and power for the month of February.
