EYE ON THE SKY: ASTRO-WEATHER JAN 10-13TH
We have the lunar eclipse today which is good for spiritual experiences and mantras and meditation but emotionally difficult outside of meditation.. In the US, the lunar eclipse peaks today at 2:11 pm EST and usually it starts 2.5 hours before and ends 2.5 hours . Check the internet for the times in your locality. The full moon is opposing Saturn and Pluto into 6:45 pm EST this afternoon creating pessimism, gloom, fear, and feelings get exaggerating that things are dire. Remember most of the mental energy you experience is garbage so wait 5 days to make any major decisions until after Jan 15th. Rest, meditate do your yoga and eat lightly or fast today to enhance and deepen spiritual experiences.
The post eclipse weather forecast is not great either and it is one of the rougher weekends of the year. Mercury is conjunct the Sun today at 10:20 am EST which can be powerful as it moves into the heart of the Sun which is Divine but it can also create a very buzzy and busy mind the next few days so find ways to slow it down. It will be conjunct Saturn and Pluto on Sunday morning which can increase gloomy and negative thoughts so make sure to be there for people who are feeling depressed and uplift them. Watch out for miscommunication which can lead to angry outbursts so communicate clearly and reduntantly to avoid problems. We also have the Saturn/Pluto exact conjunction on Jan. 12th and we have been writing about this for months but it increases pessimism and creates a sense that the world is going to end so watch for a pinnacle of war scares and climate change fear in the media to peak. Luckily Jupiter is the dispositor of all with all the planets in Sagittarius and Jupiter aspecting Rahu across the way so the Divine is making sure no one comes to no harm even if it feels dire.
Sun is conjunct Saturn and Pluto on Jan. 13th. When the Sun is exactly conjunct Saturn, it is cazimi and Saturn moves into the heart of the Sun and finds deep spiritual upliftment and that might even be felt Jan. 12th-Jan. 14th. But otherwise when the Sun is not exact Saturn, Saturn’s energy is wiped out and one has to take care of one’s immune system and avoid situations that may elevate high blood pressure and avoid confrontations with bosses and government as they may not end well.
Sun goes into Capricorn on Jan. 14th bringing Makara Sankranti and starting the new business year and ascent of the Sun and energy so the next dawn is coming soon. Rough start to the New Year but it will get better as we move toward the end of January. Hang in there!
