Mercury retrograde

As we move through a month of alignment in awareness, mental Mercury turns retrograde, undermining momentum with reflection, distraction. There is nothing wrong with this, can make for deep communication and magical connections if we are flexible, accept the pause of second thoughts, go with unexpected changes.

(Mercury retrograde in Aquarius 1/21, 7:54am PT, through 2/11.)

Tuesday 1/20/15--Aquarius/new moon

Aquarius, midwinter in the north. Alignment in awareness amidst the pattern of our involvements. This year it begins and ends with a new moon, reinforcing the process.

(First Aquarius new moon 1/20, 5:14 am Pacific time. Mental Mercury turns retrograde, reflective, 1/21-2/11.)

We get right in our essence, our personal perspective, forging enlightened relationships based on organic interdependence.

(Full moon in Leo 2/3. Second Aquarius new moon 2/18. Pluto in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries 3/16. Jupiter ends retrograde in Leo 4/8.)

Seed potential is activated toward a new spring of flowering emergence, powerful this year.

Sunday 1/4/15--Capricorn full moon

The first full moon since solstice joins a historic planetary alignment to kick off a powerful new year. Grounded in deep nature force (Sun with Pluto in Capricorn, at the bottom of our seasonal cycle), energizing revolutionary emergence (square Uranus in Aries), releasing expression of flowing feeling (Moon full in Cancer, over the top), Sunday 1/4/15, 8:53pm Pacific time.

Since 2012, a rare alignment (Pluto in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries--last happened 1167 BC) has been undermining unhealthy relationships based on tense control, empowering ones rooted in natural interdependence. It has now reached peak reinforcement, unleashing a big wave of planetary transformation with this full moon, breaking out with passionate power (Jupiter in Leo) this coming spring and summer.
