OK, we’ve had the holidays, indulged ourselves and hopefully had a very lovely time seeing our way through the darkest days of the year (or celebrating the lightest days of the year for those of you in the Southern hemisphere), now it’s time to get stuck in to 2013 and begin to turn its promise into something real.
To help us on our way today (3rd January) we have an inspiring, electric, maybe eccentric, challenging square between Mercury and Uranus. Mercury and Uranus work well together, they have an understanding – Mercury is all about messages, communication, ideas and Uranus is about technology and flashes of inspiration. Uranus also like to spring surprises on us, he likes to introduce the unexpected and rebellious, even revolutionary. So to kick off this New Year we have an energy that can bring surprising news, unexpected messages – keep your eyes and ears open as today could bring long awaited news, although perhaps not quite in the way you expect!
Then tomorrow we have Mars forming a trine to Jupiter – this is a big channelling of energy between air signs and so linked to ideas, and Mars in Aquarius is repeating the unexpected and rebellious theme of Uranus. AND Mars and Uranus are in mutual reception while Jupiter likes to expand on things – so those little ideas, messages, glimmerings of something might just get the opportunity to grow into something much bigger and more substantial over this first week of 2013. Jupiter is still heading backwards in Gemini, supporting Mercury’s input to these little sparks of inspiration we might be getting, but he’s focussed on using them to revisit and rethink issues from the past.
So all in all we may well get unexpected news or flashes of insight that give us a new perspective on something from the past – there is the chance to gain some clarity or improved understanding and then use that to clear the way for new developments – while Jupiter is concerned with rethinking the past Mercury, Mars and Uranus are all urging forward motion so whatever messages or ideas do occur over the next couple of days they can help clear away obstacles and difficulties that are still hanging around but which are no longer of use to you, at least not in their old form.
