Weekly Forecast January 9-15, 2017

This week Mercury goes direct on Sunday, January 8th. We have a Full Moon in emotional and protective Cancer Thursday, January 12th. Mars in Pisces sextile Pluto brings us good news as he also approaches a conjunction to Chiron over the weekend.

Best days of the week to get things done: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday.

The cloud from the holi-daze is lifted and you can let out a sigh of relief as Mercury goes direct on Sunday, January 8th. It feels like the course has corrected and your mental clarity has returned to be able to complete the tasks at hand.

Mars Sextile Pluto in the New Year sky brings good news in the form of a raise, a hot connection with your beloved, or the freedom of releasing something that no longer serves you. If you have some problem solving or relationship healing (or freeing) to do, this is a great week to have a heart to heart and level with the other party to find a win win solution. This is also a beneficial time to energize group projects or work towards goals you set on the last New Moon.

The Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday brings out emotional sensitivity more than any other moon. Both the Moon and Cancer conjure feminine qualities and archetypes such as the nurturing mother. But Jupiter, Pluto, Neptune and Venus have a few more influences to offer during this Full Moon. We have some rituals, recipes and moonlore for you on the blog including directions for making a warming winter tea, salmon cakes with magic Moon sauce, an acorn squash and spinach mash, and some baked molasses apples you can turn into a yummy apple butter to nourish yourself and your family.

Over the weekend Mars will approach his conjunction to Chiron giving you an opportunity to send some TLC to your masculine or paternal side. You may feel an urge to protect, provide or conquer. This transit in a way, is a call to express anger in healthy ways: take a self-defense course, express extra physical energy with a long workout, heal relationships with men. Hold your ground in a peaceful way utilizing the adage: say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t say it mean. Don’t poke the bear, and avoid violent thoughts, films and songs during this time.
