Mercury in Sagittarius trine Uranus Rx in Aries (28 deg)
Venus in Scorpio trine the Cancer North Node (26 deg)
Sun in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces (14 deg)
Mercury’s freedom-inducing trine to Uranus is a final burst before it enters restrictive Capricorn later today. Uranus amplifies Mercury in Sag’s view of possibilities (and bluntness) by adding innovation and a touch of controversy. Excellent for leaps of logic and radical honesty, which you can then focus once Mercury enters Capricorn.
Uranus is Rx - are you returning to a past issue of liberation or creativity? Does something need to be expressed? Perhaps now is the time to put it into words.
Note that this trine can help you look beyond yesterday’s hurtful Mercury/Chiron square - no matter what went down, there are always new and better options ahead.
Venus in Scorpio trine the North Node is part of an ongoing Grand Water Trine that I discussed in this week’s horoscopes:
“January 1st to 5th features yet another Grand Water Trine involving Chiron in Pisces and the Cancer North Node. It was activated from November 6th to 8th (by Jupiter in Scorpio) and on November 20th (by the Sun in Scorpio). Now Venus in Scorpio reactivates the potential to address weaknesses and vulnerabilities (Chiron) while moving forward into new emotional territory (North Node). Venus is about relationships, values, finances and self-esteem, so these areas can flow nicely. The North Node will be key - step into a new area that demands emotional honesty and vulnerability.”
Venus in Scorpio is about the deepest possible commitment to what you want or who you love (including yourself). This will involve an uncomfortable amount of honesty, but the rewards will include forward movement (North Node) to a place where your needs are honoured. This is about tuning into what you want and need, and the flow of the trine ensures that this will happen naturally. Meaning, if it doesn’t feel right and move forward without effort, it’s not meant to be.
This influence will be fairly quiet - Neptune will whisper that there are other possibilities beyond current rules and status. Sun in Capricorn can (if you’re aware - this influence will be easy to ignore) gently add warmth to a dream or a belief and allow you to make it real. Nothing dramatic mind you (sorry, no lottery wins).
Overall, I’d say this is a day for being honest with yourself, on an intellectual and emotional level. The trines will make it easy - all you have to do is go with it.
