We start the week on Monday with a disseminating Moon in Libra, which first trines the Sun (in Aquarius) and then later trines Venus and opposes Uranus. As Moon transits are fleeting, this series of transits will likely only produce short-lived effects.

Two of Wands

ARIES: Two of Wands

Be on the lookout this month for opportunities that are available to you, even those that may not be so readily apparent from your current vantage point.

The Two of Wands — this version from the gorgeous Shadowscapes Tarot — speaks of having put an initial plan into action (with the Ace of Wands) and seeing it starting to gather momentum. It means that something has started to happen — something that’s big enough to assure you you’re on the right track, but not yet well-thought out enough to ensure that it’s a go.

This could be something that was once just a dream or half-formed vision about where you see yourself “down the road.” You may be thinking of going back to school, or looking for another job or approaching someone you’re interested in and asking them out to dinner. It doesn’t have to be something big. But it can lead to something huge.

The Two of Wands asks, “What are you waiting for?” and “why are you holding back?” It tells you that there’s no time like the present to put yourself out there and take at least the first steps toward pursuing your goals.

You may not have fully fleshed out your ideas. And that’s perfectly ok. The Two of Wands speaks of putting something into action that will gather momentum over time. It encourages you to expand your horizons and reach for broader vistas. It speaks of taking a look at your long-term goals and acting on them with courage and conviction.

If you’ve been hesitating due to fear or uncertainty, now is the time to put those worries aside. You’re already seeing how some moves are paying off, and are now in a position to take things to the next level. The Two of Wands says that all you aspire to is now within your grasp; you only need to gather up the courage and confidence to go after it.

This week starts on Monday with a 1st quarter (Gibbous) Moon in Cancer. The 1st quarter Moon is tied to home, family, security, emotions and needs (among other things). It’s comfortable in Cancer (the sign it rules), although the first aspect it makes (an opposition to Saturn) is anyhing but.

We start this week on Monday with Mercury inconjuncting the North Node and semi-sextiling the South Node. This aspect can see you feeling at odds with your plans and goals (Mercury) and what you see as your life’s purpose (the North Node). In what ways are you getting in your own way and interfering with your progress?

We start this week on Monday with five planets in Capricorn, and a Balsamic Moon (also in Capricorn) conjunct Saturn. That’s a lot of Capricorn / Saturnine energy that can manifest as a preponderance of focus on things like discipline, diligence, responsibility and perseverance.

January 2018 Tarot Scopes by Melodie

ARIES: Transformation

With Mars and Jupiter moving through your 8th house this month, you may be thinking about closing the door on one chapter in your life and opening another.

The Transformation card is the Vision Quest Tarot’s version of the traditional tarot’s Death card.

It speaks of putting certain things to rest — whether that be a relationship that you’ve been holding onto for far too long, a belief system that no longer serves you, or material possessions that you’ve accumulated but no longer have any use for.

The Death card is scary for some. Because it represents having something we’ve grown accustomed to taken away. But this card focuses on the transformative effects of “Death” in that all that you release will not only be replenished, but will get you one step closer to your own evolutionary potential.

It reminds us that energy never dies and that nothing we’ve lost is ever really gone. It’s simply transformed and renewed, like the spirit of the owl overseeing the remnants of a tribal monument on this card. The animal’s carcass may be old and weathered, but the Moon in the sky is new, reminding us that endings always lead to new beginnings.

Sometimes the Universe shows us just what we don’t need by removing it from us forcefully from our grip. In this sense the “death” can be a painful undertaking. But if you choose instead to cooperate, it can be an incredibly liberating experience.

You may have to accept that the very thing you so desperately cling to is the one that’s holding you back. In this respect, it’s more about leaving behind something that probably wasn’t working for you anyway and moving toward something that you’re naturally more aligned with in the end.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Dec 25, 2017 – Dec 31, 2017:

We start this week with Venus moving into Capricorn on Monday and forming a conjunction to Saturn. Starting with Venus in Capricorn:  this archetype understands the value of hard work, dedication and discipline. It’s also responsible and reliable — with money, in your career, in your relationships with loved ones, and especially when it comes to matters of the heart. It represents a time for getting serious about your relationships — or lack thereof. And it’s a time for taking a more practical approach to relationships, whether that means emphasizing head over heart or ticking off a checklist to make sure your partner meets your qualifications.
