Your Weekly Astro Forecast Jan 27- Feb 2

The New Moon that formed on Friday marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Metal Rat. The Rat symbolizes wealth and accumulation. This is a year to get organized and attend to many small practical matters, especially regarding finances. As Aquarius symbolizes new thinking, we are invited to open to new ideas, solutions, and possibilities. The week ahead is a productive one. Progress can be made on goals by breaking things down into small steps—and taking them.

days of sweetness and imagination to start the week

Love is in the air on Monday. The day is laced with sweetness and compassion. Do a random act of kindness.

Against the backdrop of a dreamy Pisces Moon, Tuesday is full of planetary activity that is erratic, inventive, imaginative, and generative. The Moon’s benefic alignments with Saturn and Pluto help us get some work done in the vacillating waves of the day. Honor your intuition and clever ideas.

independence and intensity mid-week

We are energized Wednesday as the Moon moves into action-oriented fire sign Aries and begins a new lunar cycle. Get moving! Start your day with vigorous exercise. The Sun and Moon align in a benefic sextile. Planetary energies cry for independence, so it’s a day to strike out on your own and honor your goals and desires.

Ceres, the Earth mother goddess, leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius, delighted to entertain new options, relieved to be out of the grip of Saturn and Pluto. The intensity of many planets in Capricorn this past month is beginning to break apart and move on. With the Moon still in Aries aspecting Jupiter and Mars, it’s another day for independent expression. Forge ahead with new projects.

productivity and accomplishment to close the week

Friday, just after the Moon squares Pluto and Saturn in the early morning, it is void of course all day until 4:28 p.m. PST, thus making the day better for routine tasks rather than meetings and activities calling for decisions. Yet, a lot can be accomplished. Expect a surprising start to the weekend as the Moon conjoins Uranus in the evening.

Saturday is the first day of February 2020—already we are one month into this new decade. Saturday is Saturn’s Day; a day for productivity, duty, and work. The Moon is in Taurus where it is exalted, or highest functioning. Taurus is fixed earth symbolizing all things sensual. Our passions are stirred by a benefic Venus-Pluto sextile. Our goals are buoyed by a Moon-Jupiter trine. Our productivity is encouraged by a Moon-Sun square. This is a day to lean in, work hard, and be productive.

Sunday is another beautiful, sensual day with the Moon exalted in Taurus, and making numerous benefic aspects. Use this productive day to get a lot accomplished and to prepare well for the week ahead.

The Week in Short:

Monday: Do a random act of kindness on this sweet day.

Tuesday: Productive, inventive, imaginative day.

Wednesday: Energetic, active day. Express your independence.

Thursday: Forge ahead with new projects.

Friday: Moon VoC all day. Not a day for meetings or decisions, but a lot can be accomplished.

Saturday: Lean in and work hard and enjoy as much sensual pleasure as the day affords.

Sunday: Beautiful, pleasurable day when much can be accomplished.
