"The vanity of men/They would like to retain/This passing winter moon"
This monthís full moon comes at the end of the month, and with Jupiter and Saturn dancing around up there, the night sky will be a sight to behold. As you know, weíre midstream in a lot of different themes here in America Inc. And with Jupiter and Saturn continuing to square off, it may seem as though the superpowers are the ones frozen, while the smaller satellites glide about with great celerity. Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn could be in a major career transition (wanna tell me about it?). Could and SHOULD. The old ways of doing things arenít working, and youíre midway to a new method ó but not there yet. Winter is a time when not just the ground gets frozen; human motivation diminishes Ė it takes energy just to keep warm, let alone to move onto the Next Thing.
Days Iím watching are those around January 27, when Mars and Pisces get right on top of one another in Sagittarius. Explosive? You bet. Nothing gets resolved, but thereís a lot of stirring-up of old business, particularly for Sagittarius, who may seem to be self-destructive. But one personís idiotic and pointless bungy-jump is another personís graceful and irresistible move that even Flying by Foy couldnít manage. Virgo and Pisces, will you wear sensible shoes? Gemini, will you not spill all the beans?
Thanks for visiting, and hereís how this site works. The daily "Moon Signs" forecast keeps track of the moon phases. Itís easy to read Ė the first line applies to us all, and then I get specific, but you definitely want to pay attention to the moon when itís in the same sign as your sun sign. Youíre beginning a new 28-day cycle, and the people, places, projects, and problems that arise get explored in-depth during that phase.
I answer reader queries on this page at "Letters to Symboline," the Internetís most helpful astrological advice column (Itís to the left of this column on this page). If your situation is too complex for "Letters," consider a personal forecast. And, if you click on your sun sign, youíll find a monthly forecast, with specific days highlighted.
Also, I HAVE the new, beautiful Moon Signs calendar for 2005. Itís on www.moonsigns.net, and I also wrote the weekly copy for the 2005 Llewellyn Starview Almanac Ė the year at a glance, so to speak. Iíve seen that in my local Barnes & Noble, and I think itís getting pretty decent distribution, so go scoop it up.
Happy birthday this month to polar explorer Lawrence Millman (Larry ó we miss ya!), Mary and Dr. Jennifer Trainor, Annette French, Eli Trainor-Sou, Elinor Silverman, Victor Dupuis, and Frank Grillo. Also, Beth díA, Lisa G, and Lorraine W.
