Are you having trouble focusing on your work today? I certainly am. I have a long list of tasks to do, but I keep drifting off into la-la land and having to haul my head back into place.

You can thank the Pisces Moon for the fogginess. If you have lots of Pisces in your chart, you may feel right at home. The rest of us might be feeling a bit dreamy and wishing for a nap.

The Moon enters into a supportive angle with Saturn after lunch, which may help you finish out the work day with a bit more discipline. By late afternoon, the already-emotional Pisces Moon could go over-the-top as she encounters a challenge from expansive Jupiter. Offer a shoulder to someone who needs a good cry.

This evening is perfect for relaxing as the Moon joins with Neptune in his native ocean realm. Have a glass of wine. Take a hot bath with scented oils, watch an epic fantasy film, or compose a poem or song. Let yourself drift on creative currents and enjoy a long night’s sleep.

The Moon is moving unaspected through eccentric Aquarius for the rest of the day, which is fun because we’re free to be as uninhibited and quirky as we care to be.

Venus entered happy-go-lucky Sagittarius yesterday where she will hang with jolly Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, for the rest of January. Our sense of what we find beautiful takes on an adventurous tone, jiving with today’s Aquarius Moon. You may feel like expanding your horizons a bit this month.

BUT — kind of a big but — Mercury in sobersided Capricorn is squabbling with Mars in impulsive Aries today. Mars is casting a particularly impatient vibe, while Mercury is uncharacteristically severe. So while you may want to sit down and get some focused work done, you feel like you have ants in your pants. It may be best to do some physical labor today or at least use the stairs a few times. Try not to bite off anyone’s head in the meantime.

Mercury moves briskly through the final degrees of Sagittarius today, all the while engaged in a dialog with Uranus, the Great Awakener. Uranus is currently standing still in the last degrees of Aries, preparing to move forward into Taurus. He will leave Aries on March 6th, not to return for 84 years.

What house does Aries occupy in your chart? Uranus entered Aries in Spring of 2011 and spent seven years waking you up regarding that area of your life. For example, if Aries occupies your seventh house of relationships, likely you’ve had some big realizations or shake-ups around important partnerships in your life.

Today Mercury is interviewing Uranus about what went on over the last seven years. Your mind is open to insight, to seeing things in a new light. You may receive some cosmic downloads, some exciting news, or a big aha to close out this era.

At the same time, the Sun is chatting with Neptune, enhancing our intuitive and psychic abilities. Meditation and dreamwork can help you absorb any flashes of understanding.

Midday, the waning balsamic Moon travels for a brief time with Mercury, joining in the conversation with Uranus, helping you to process emotionally and to let go of whatever needs to go. Then the mood shifts as the Moon enters Capricorn at 1:55 PM EST. She tangles with fiery Mars in Aries in the early evening, setting us up for a night best spent in productive solo activities.

And finally, ending a busy astrological day, Mercury finishes up with Uranus and follows the Moon into Capricorn at 10:40 PM EST. Here Mercury can help you get your thinking in order and to set goals to put in motion at the Capricorn New Moon tomorrow.
