Today, Jan. 6th, Mars enters the sign Taurus. On Friday January 8th Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius for an exceptionally long transit through that sign. Mars looks combative. Aquarius seems committed to a train of thought he’s unwilling to alter or change.
Neither sign is flexible. It’s a recipe for conflict that could be explosive.
Mercury resides the sign of Aquarius through March 15th due to it’s retrograde phase beginning on Jan.30th and ending on
Feb.20th. Mercury finally turns direct and leaves the sign of Aquarius for Pisces on March 15th. Total time = Jan. 8th – March 15th.
Mercury in Aquarius can formulate brilliant ideas designed to break through blockages to progress. Therein lies the problem for Taurus. He’s resistant to change and addicted to comfortable routines – particularly when it comes to protecting what’s “tried and true.” What’s familiar and comforting resists change.
Tradition pits itself against more enlightened, progressive, disruptive thoughts and ideas. Liberating the masses from an entrenched, repressive status quo is a possibility. But it appears there will be pain involved.
Structures built to support what’s become outdated and ineffective may face a serious challenged.
Venus enters Capricorn on Friday January 8th making a harmonious trine to Mars in Taurus on Saturday January 9th. Actions align with your ability to attract what you want. This is an excellent aspect for getting what you want and for accomplishing “real world” progress.
