Tracys Astro Salon » This Week in Astrology

January 17th, 2017 @ 4:35 am by Tracys Astro Salon

This Week in Astrology
We start off the week in the Disseminating phase.   We wake up on Martin Luther King Day wanting to take care of business.   We are aware of loose ends and want to tighten them up.    We also look around and wonder how we can serve?   Is it a charity?  Is it our neighbor?  Is it a friend or family?
On the 19th Mars is pushing hard on Saturn.  The warrior goes up to the boss and says, “No”.    We are aware of our responsibilities and they frustrate us and feel like big burdens but at the same time we are galvanized and ready to fight our way through these responsibilities.    With Pisces (Mars) our humanitarian side is on a war path and with Sagittarius (Saturn) righteous rhetoric is not giving an inch.   Push is meeting …

A pal may want more than just friendship, and it may come as a big surprise but not an unwelcome one. Take time to consider how you feel and the pros and cons before making any decisions. Some of your coworkers may be planning a coup on the job; stand your ground and don’t get involved
Think before speaking this week especially if you’re feeling angry. It will be easy to say something that will make you feel better in the moment, but that you may regret later. Be the one to make the first move with your romantic partner this week; they may be feeling that they do all of the work
Be sure that you really want to say goodbye before initiating a breakup this week; try some negotiation first. Staying at your current job

The new moon in Aquarius take place in the evening on, Friday, January 27th. This is a potent new moon in that it’s unaspected.

The ruler of Aquarius, Uranus, is in the warrior sign, Aries. Consequently, I see this new moon as if the universe is throwing down the gauntlet. It’s a challenge to reinvent yourself (sun) and your feelings (moon), as they relate to the house in your chart where the new moon takes place.(…)

Hi Elsa,

I wanted to personally thank you for the Saturn in Sagittarius workshop I took last year. I don’t think i would have survived what I went through last year without this knowledge! Talk about a real education- ha! I’m a walking testimonial of that.

I was thinking about what you said about Saturn in Sagittarius bringing high flyers down. I see it all around and of course the news worldwide is full of testimonials of this. So if Saturn in Sagittarius brought down things that were “high on themselves”, all that gained power during Pluto’s transit of Sagittarius, I wonder what will Saturn in Capricorn bring down? Things that gained power while Pluto in Capricorn? 

I Wonder

One thing the Virgo Moon dislikes is being rushed when there are important details to handle. An inconjunct from Uranus in Aries, the ultimate in pushy, occurs during the morning and can put her in a mood. Midday she has to contend with an opposition to the Mars-Chiron conjunction in Pisces. When Saturn in Sagittarius shows up late afternoon to square the Virgo Moon, it might be the last straw. We go from dealing with super impatient people, to very thin skinned ones only to end up having to shoulder extra duties when we’re already worn out. It looks like a Monday with a capital ‘M’!!  I almost hate to mention the importance of practicing patience and kindness rather than being snarky and sarcastic. 🙂 🌠☾♍🌠

Mars conjunct Chiron in Pisces is not an easy combination. We may have …

How time flies when you’re having fun! We’re down to the last few days of Capricorn Season before the Sun rolls into eccentric Aquarius on Thursday. This shift will give us a much needed fixed planet to balance the abundance of pushy cardinal and mushy mutable signs. Speaking of mushy mutable planets, Mars in Pisces is the featured planet this week heading towards a tense square to Saturn in Sagittarius on Thursday.

On Monday Mars will conjoin Chiron in Pisces and unless we make a serious effort to be sensitive to others, there may be plenty of toes stomped on. Even if we do our best not to cause other people pain and suffering, it may happen inadvertently. Mars and Chiron are both very thin-skinned in empathetic Pisces and bruise easily. The best outcome is the pain will reveal areas …

With Director James Comey and the FBI under something of a congressional microscope these days it seems the still-current September 1, 2016 Solar Eclipse @9Vir21 has been very active within the Collective in more ways than one. Its ‘truth tackling’ theme is operative though the American people may wonder if such a noble quest is in need of cleansing since transiting Neptune @10Pisces (planet of…

This week’s major aspect involves what the ancients termed ‘the malefics’ ie. Mars and Saturn implying that nothing good ever comes from a meeting between these two and I am always caught in the dilemma of how to translate this into our modern life and awareness. Does it mean that we are going to hell in a handcart on the eve of Donald Trump’s inaugoration? Saturn is a hard taskmaster for sure and he makes us take on responsibility. Interestingly, Donald himself has on-going Saturn aspects as this planet conjuncts his Moon in Sagittarius and opposes his Sun in Gemini and will do so on and off through 2017 so it isn’t going to be an easy ride for him. He will feel curtailed, controlled and watched throughout this period which marks a distinct clampdown on his personal freedom which …
