“How long do Planetary Aspects last?” For the Moon, a few hours at most. For the Personal Planets, a day or so, maybe longer, as we just saw last Wednesday with Mercury stationary, sitting still before going direct. It took a couple of days before those needing to “make up their minds” made them up and the results hit the news. For aspects between the Giant Planets, the buildup and release both can take weeks.
As for the consequences, well, for some, expect years. Last April, Jupiter aligned with Neptune. The “leaky wallet” is going into its 2nd year and the consequences are still piling up. The Fat Boy represents ‘the most’, like us people; staff shortages keep building, supply chains keep breaking, and economists now keep saying a Recession is coming, likely Global, as Jupiter is also Daddy Big Bucks, still with a leak.
“So?” Last week’s energies were mostly lacking. But, a Giant Planet Complex is set in late Wednesday, too. For primitives, it cranked up stubborn resentments. Then, Uranus, the Lord of Cranky Stubborn, stood still Sunday. The 5th US mass shooting of the year happened in CA the night before. And, here came another round of protests and riots, from here to Peru.
“So? That’s kind of expected, right?” Right, but there’s a bigger point to be made. Giant Planet Complexes, especially when those Giants are making a point (stationary) and/or are aspecting each other, pump up their impact. Tuesday, the Sun aspects Jupiter, slow-triggering Thursday’s GPC, and on the same day cranky stubborn Uranus forms another GPC. That’s 3 Giant Complexes in a week! Then, the Sun aspects Neptune on Saturday, generating desperation and is trine Mars on Sunday, a setup for angry release.
Wait, there’s more. Never have I seen All the Planets focus on a harmonic set of Aspects. Every Planet is spaced about 5 degrees apart, or multiples thereof. 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 degrees of Every Sign of the Zodiac, within a degree or so, has something happening. It may be a soft Aspect or hard, but this means that the Horoscopes of everyone on the Planet get affected! Harmonics can make beautiful music but too many make a cacophony.
And, the Moon will trigger complex after complex every few hours for days of daze. Next week’s Full Moon is square Cranky Stubborn Uranus on Sunday, the 5th. The Moon is at apogee the day before, pulling people up and out of their norm.
But, the aspect worth worrying about is the Moon aligning with primed and pumped Mars in Gemini, the most fixed Sign of the Zodiac. Monday night, the 30th is the peak of a Volatile Release, an Astrological Tsunami. This will put the ‘hunker’ in Hunker Down.
This week: Most of the week will be easy and overly relaxed. Most all main aspects are soft, and rather unmotivating, especially the Sun to Jupiter on Tuesday, the likely core of what’s to follow. Monday has a bit of business to attend to. Friday finally gets a bit energized, leading to some old to ancient irritants surfacing Saturday. But, give it a chance, and Sunday of full of spit and vinegar, if you let it. At this point, don’t, it gets out of hand too fast.
Nota Bene: Greenland is the warmest it’s been in 1000 years. 9 waves of rain still couldn’t erase the SW drought, wells are going dry in AZ. Maybe if we ignore it for another 50 years, Global Warming will go away.
All Planetary Aspect energies build up several hours before (for the swift) to a few days before (for the slow), as they approach. The Moon triggers within 2 hours.

Monday, 23 January. (Moon frumpy in Aquarius. Mercury in Capricorn semisquare Saturn in Aquarius. 9-10 Cardinal, 24-25 Fixed)
Mind your P’s and Q’s, and all the details in between, or there could be a penalty.
Tuesday – Thursday, 24-26 January. (Moon lulled in Pisces, into carelessness in Aries. The Sun in Aquarius sextile Jupiter in Aries soft aspecting Saturn / Uranus. 4-5 degrees and 19-20 degrees of All Signs)
This feeds strong, supportive energy into the middle Giant Planet Complex, triggered by the Moon Wednesday. The simplest picture: too many are complacent while crises pile up! So many Stresses and Strains and nobody in charge seems to care? Who has the political axe to grind?
(Uranus in Taurus sextile Jupiter / Saturn. 14-15 Fixed, 29 Mutable – 0 Cardinal)
Stubbornly fixated on changing the normal state of affairs, altering what’s rational and legal. This is the attempt to alter what has been usual for many years, like governing structures. Soft Coup, arbitrary, overthrow by fiat.
Friday, 27 January. (Moon biding time in Aries. The Sun in Aquarius hard aspects Mars / Jupiter. 7 Fixed, 22 Mutable)
Good day to get out and go do something, most anything, so long as you get the juices flowing.
Saturday – Sunday, 28-29 January. (Moon’s selfish demands are blocked in Taurus. The Sun in Aquarius soft aspects Venus / Uranus, semisquare Neptune in Pisces, trine Mars in Gemini. 8-9 degrees and 23-24 degrees of All Signs)
Of course, the Dancing Diva, such a spoiled brat, wants what they want, no matter how unreasonable (Nep). “There will be Hell to pay if I don’t get it!” Are there any adults in the room? Apparently not, if this Mars gets loose.
(Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus. 14-15 degrees and 29-0 degrees of All Signs)
Even suitably attired, it’s amazing who will say what just to get (demand?) attention. Some ‘bright’ ideas, but way off the wall without backup (like facts).
Is your Number up? Check Your Four Personal Points for every day (see below). If the numbers match, this day is meant for you!
Each forecast shows the Moon Sign, the Planetary Aspect, and Number of degrees in Signs for the Planetary Aspect.
The Moon Sign is the Sign the Moon is in for that day. The Moon Sign gives an advantage to the Sign it is in, puts extra pressure on the opposite Sign, and tends to cross up or neutralize the Signs at right angles. For example, with Fixed Signs, if the Moon is in Taurus, Taurus has the advantage, Scorpio gets challenged, and Leo and Aquarius get shifted or crossed up.
The Planetary Aspect is where the action is released. It’s the Excuse. Unlike daily Horoscopes that suggest each day has the same level of influence, this is the core of changes in the daily energies.
The Sign Numbers are the degrees in the Signs of the Zodiac being emphasized. If the degree for any day is close to any degree of Your Four Personal Points (see below), within a degree or so, THIS IS YOUR DAY. Pay extra ATTENTION.
You may have several days in the week activated, or you may have none. As a degree hits one of Your Four Personal Points, the forecast tells about the important things in your life. The daily forecasts tell you when. The overall story comes through over time. Sooner or later, the degrees of the Forecast catch up to all Your Points.
