Welcome to This Week in Astrology, where we explore the cosmic events and planetary alignments happening from January 14th to 20th, 2024.

First Quarter Moon: Embracing Action and Overcoming Obstacles

On Wednesday, January 17th, we experience the FIRST QUARTER MOON, a pivotal phase that stimulates action and highlights the obstacles we may face. This Moon phase occurs when the Sun in Capricorn forms a square with the Moon in Aries.

The first quarter Moon brings a crisis theme, urging us to take action. It is a time when we become aware of how our actions affect those around us. We may encounter challenges and setbacks, but these obstacles help us grow and learn from our mistakes.

This phase of the Moon occurs at 27 degrees and 32 minutes of Aries, squaring the Sun at the same degree of Capricorn. This influence significantly affects individuals born with personal planets and points between 26 to 30 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).

Planetary Positions and Aspects: Capricorn and Aquarius Energies

Throughout the week, the Sun remains in Capricorn until January 20th when it moves into Aquarius. This Capricorn energy motivates us to be responsible, ambitious, and respectful of law and order. We find satisfaction in completion and accomplishment and thrive within established boundaries.

Mercury also resides in Capricorn, making our thinking methodical and focused on practical matters. Our conversations are realistic and business-oriented, as we prioritize long-term goals and well-organized approaches. We need to be cautious about becoming too rigid in our thinking and remember to infuse some humor and flexibility.

Similarly, Venus is in Sagittarius, shifting our romantic energy from intensity to a more buoyant and adventurous approach. We seek intellectual rapport and enjoy activities such as travel, learning, and exploring the outdoors. While our approach may be more carefree, we still place value on intellectual connections in our relationships.

Mars is in Capricorn, adding deliberate and persistent energy to our actions. We consider the future and the consequences before taking action, ensuring we are in control and on top of things. However, we need to be mindful of not becoming too cold or irritable when faced with frustration.

Astrological Highlights: Venus Aspects and Lunar Transits

In terms of planetary aspects, we have several significant alignments involving Venus:

  • Venus quincunx Uranus (January 14th): This aspect may bring impulsive spending, peculiar attractions, and conflicts between the desire for freedom and intimacy in relationships.
  • Venus sesquiquadrate Jupiter (January 15th): We experience a strong desire for more pleasure, which can lean towards excess. However, we should be cautious not to overstate our feelings or set unrealistic expectations.
  • Venus square Neptune (January 18th-19th): This transit can create ups and downs in relationships and romantic mirages. We may see what we want to see, rather than the reality, so we need to be careful not to set ourselves up for disappointment.

The Moon's transits this week include:

  • Moon in Pisces: Fosters imagination, intuition, and a dreamy nature.
  • Moon in Aries: Promotes action, spontaneity, and enthusiasm.
  • Moon in Taurus: Encourages seeking comfort, stability, and pleasure.
  • Moon in Gemini: Stimulates communication, learning, and curiosity.

Astrological Timing and Opportunity Periods

Timing with the Moon is always an essential consideration in astrology. This week, we have two favorable windows for initiating new projects or ventures:

  • Monday, January 15th, from approximately 8:50 AM to 11:30 PM EST, while the Moon is in Pisces.
  • Thursday, January 18th, at approximately 3:15 AM EST until Saturday, January 20th, at approximately 8:55 AM EST, while the Moon is in Taurus.

However, it's important to note that these windows serve as starting points, and additional astrological factors should be taken into account when electing the perfect timing for new initiatives.

Looking Ahead: Pluto's Transition into Aquarius

Lastly, we want to highlight an upcoming significant shift: Pluto's transition from Capricorn to Aquarius in 2023 and 2024. This marks a time of major reform, particularly in social structures and politics. We can anticipate changes and innovations that challenge the status quo and focus on individuality, equality, and progressive ideals.

Remember that astrology provides guidance, but ultimately, how we navigate and interact with the cosmic energies is up to us. Embrace the opportunities for growth, stay adaptable, and make the most of this week in astrology.
