Sagittarius Moon is in the waning crescent phase as it heads towards New Moon on the 8th of February. Today the Moon meets up with Saturn, the Lord of Karma, known for its penchant for responsibility and structure as well as the chronological unfolding of life. The Moon and Saturn will stimulate the Sun today creating an adventurous, fiery flavor seeking the greater meaning of it all through stepping back and viewing the “big picture”. With three Planets in Capricorn, we find Venus, Pluto and Mercury holding court and inquiring into that which we can commit to and that which is not aligned with our master plan can be released. With the recent connection of Mercury and Pluto in the past few weeks, things may have felt a bit intense as the having the Planets of the Unconscious and Communication teaming up may have veered us into shadow lands. The shadows can bring up the parts we may have brushed away under the carpet, not ready to be dealt with, but lately those areas have been called to our attention. With Mars, the activator of our will in the sign of Scorpio we are again reminded of that which may lurk beneath the covers, the undercurrent of raw truth that wants us to see its essence and deal with it. As Mercury is still recovering from its retrograde period, not quite at the point of which it began its cycle, we are still reviewing where we have been and in a somewhat contemplative phase until the 14th of February when Mercury leaves the shadow phase and gets curious about what lies ahead. Now we are tying up the loose ends, discarding that which does not serve, and "ramping up" to build that which aligns more with our values. Much of the emphasis right now is on our relationships and our place in society and not so much on our personal growth except to “shake things up from the norm” with Uranus in Aries. We are asked to seek the vision, go outside the box, and stick with the structures that will allow us to traverse the mountain and reach the peak.
