Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Jan 11, 2021 – Jan 17, 2021:
We start this week on Monday, with Mercury conjuncting Jupiter and both of them sextiling Chiron. With respect to the Mercury / Jupiter conjunction, we have two natural polarities — the natural rulers of the 3rd and 9th houses — joined together in harmony. We have Mercury — the planet associated with communications and ideas — conjuncting Jupiter — the planet associated with benevolence, good will and generosity.
The sextile to Chiron brings elements like compassion, humility and tolerance to the table, making it a little easier to understand someone else’s point of view. Among many other things, this transit is good for opening your heart to those you love and expressing appreciation and gratitude for all that you have. It’s good for coming together with others and celebrating your allegiances while honoring and accepting your differences. It can herald a time for feeling inspired and optimistic about the future.
