January 25th brings us a hypersensitive Venus/Chiron conjunction in Pisces. It's connected to January 16th’s Mars/Chiron conjunction (painful/compassionate actions). This time, compassionate love and empathy will come from the realization that beauty is imperfect. Or, that pain and healing are part of loving and letting go. This leads us to the January 27th Venus square to Saturn in Sagittarius, which will clarify the hard limits around what you want/love. Mars/Chiron’s actions will have led you to Venus/Chiron’s results.
The synergy between Aquarius and Saturn continues. The January 19th Mars/Saturn square was aligned with the Sun’s ingress into Aquarius. Now, the January 27th Aquarius New Moon is joined by a Venus/Saturn square. New beginnings will involve the awareness of what's being denied. If you're able to approach this with measured thoughtfulness, you should be ok. A degree of detachment, self-reliance and self-control is expected.
Fortunately, Mars enters Aries on January 28th, gaining full strength and adding significant energy to this new chapter.
