Happy New Year’s Day!
Celestially speaking, it’s a great day for clearing our landscape, planting root crops like beets and going fishing.
Today, the waning crescent moon begins in shady, skeptical Scorpio until 4:26 PM CST when it goes void of course. Waning crescent moon – the last moon’s phase – is a time to catch up on rest and prepare for all that is to come – a perfect way to launch into 2019. Finish what’s been started and let go of what no longer serves you. But be patient. Now is a time for meditation and hibernation until the cycle begins again.

We’ll see Jupiter sesquiquadrate the True Node at 4:15 AM CST. The sesquiquadrate is a minor aspect in astrology referring to an arc of 135° and “True Node” (also known as North Node) refers to mathematical points where the moon’s orbit intersects the Ecliptic, the Sun’s annual path on the celestial sphere. Usually, this aspect – Jupiter sesquiquadrate the True Node – signals struggle. In this case, we may experience uncertainty about our beliefs or a lack of
Mars enters its home sign of Aries today and remains there until mid-February to give us the spurt of ambition we need to kick off the new year. Like the ram, we may feel more headstrong than usual during this time. Focus and direct this energy towards productivity. Remember: everyone is affected by this so u
