Astrology for Friday, January 8
Neptune in Pisces is trine the Moon in Scorpio today, and the Sun in Capricorn is sextile them both. We can paint more than one picture today here. One is that the Sun (President) is actively fomenting more lies and spin for people (Moon) to believe in. No matter how outrageous the spin, the Faithful will passionately believe it. Because the Moon (the populace) and Neptune (illusion/delusion) are in water signs, people will follow their fantasies and feelings. Scorpio is not a bad sign, but it is intense, and on the negative side rules things related to power - police, Mafia. So the Fantasy Spinner in Chief can misuse the public's gullibility to acquire more power.
Aside from the insurgency against our democracy Wednesday, there is another crisis: COVID cases and deaths. The connection between the Moon and Neptune ramps up the infection rate. And Neptune in Pisces can represent hospitals. Neptune is opposed by the asteroid Vesta (healthcare workers) and crossed by.the Nodes of the Moon - south node in Sagittarius and north node in Gemini - an axis of belief in one's opinions vs. scientific, logical fact.
Mercury is entering into the air sign of Aquarius today. Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, which rules the lungs in the body. This may heighten the ability of the virus to travel through air and affect the lungs. Perhaps the new, more infectious strain of COVID-19 will arrive in numbers.
Venus, a planet about relationships, values and finances, goes into the sign Capricorn after reaching its' peak in Sagittarius. Speculation in finances may simmer down. Uranus is in Taurus, another financial influence, and the two are linked. Maybe there is an acceptance that we are really operating in uncharted waters.
