It seems this week could start with good news and on an optimistic note. The planet Mercury has entered Capricorn and immediately made a nice trine to the planet Jupiter. It could be that we hear some good financial news. It’s also a great time to make financial decisions or make a big ticket purchase. The earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, in particular can benefit form this energy.
On Monday, we have our first Full Moon of the year. It will sit in the signs of Cancer and Capricorn. Full Moons are always a time to let go of what you no longer need and the sign of Cancer is all about emotional and financial security, so look at what your needs are. Do you have fears that hold you back?
This Moon is also a time to explore these things so you can free yourself up to move forward. This is a powerful Full Moon since it's in its own sign of Cancer. Watch you emotions. If you find your upset or feeling emotional, don’t ignore those feelings. Full Moons stir up issues that we have pushed aside and ignored, so honor what you feel, but also make a plan to resolve the issue.
Midweek the Sun and Mars send us an energy that is very productive. If you need a job, it’s a great time to look for one. If you need to clean out that garage, well, mid week will provide you with the energy to complete the task. So, put your head down and take care of what needs to be done, it will come easy.
Towards the end of the week we have some powerful Mercury Pluto energy. This is a probing questioning energy. So it’s a great time to uncover things that have been hidden or ignored. Just be careful that this energy does not make you feel overly suspicious of others — trust that issues can become a problem, especially if you are a Capricorn.
Finally, I wanted to share something cute with everyone —Robert Reich who was the secretary of labor under Bill Clinton and is currently a Professor of Current Policies in California has a blog where he talks about political and financial life of the United States and this week, he added this sentence to his blog: "I warn you, though. Political predictions, economic forecasts, and astrology differ in only one respect. Astrology has a fairly good record of being correct."
