Astroflash Monthly Horoscope for January 2017 by Flash Silvermoon

During our Celebration of Visionaries on January 1 I was able to see some interesting visions as were some others as well. One of the very first things that appeared to me was ice loads of ice and snow and a swath of freezing locations. Well all we have to do right now is look outside most of our windows and even as  far south as Alabama and Mississippi are having SNOW!! The bigger deal though is the scientists just discovered that a chunk of Antarctica the size of Connecticut is adrift. So we are not having issues with Climate Change right.

The other main thing that I am seeing is that  something major will interrupt or change the Inauguration ie I still do not believe that Trump will be our president or not for long. Too much deception and treasonous interaction with Russia and Putin. This whole election thing has been so weird from day one and what does puzzle me know is why neither Bernie nor HRC are pushing for the redo that to me seems necessary. This is a different way to do this column as I like to start at the beginning of the month but given Mercury is still retrograde we can share in another way.

Mercury by the way will come out of retrograde fully on the 10th so do yourselves a big favor and don’t try to start anything important that you want to last til after the 10th. This is still the good time to clear away all the funk on all levels that is getting in your way so that when the retro is over you can just fly into whatever new beginnings you would prefer.

On Inauguration Day there are many planets in Pisces- Mars,Chiron,Venus,Neptune Pallas[an Asteroid which represents a very powerful and independent female energy],and the South Node and this should sufficiently muddy the waters for sure.Neptunian energy has clouded this entire presidential race too so it is fitting that it ends with this tone as well.The Sun is at the top of the chart at 0 degree Aquarius which suggests sudden and unpredictable changes  and the Moon is at 9 degrees Scorpio which suggests among other things a major conflict between Masculine and Feminine energies. Gee do ya think that a Women’s March on DC could shake things up a bit?

Sad to say feels like a pretty war- like year and the shooting here in Florida was a pretty awful way to start the year. Because it manifested during a retrograde Mercury,what drove the shooter to become a killer was lurking deep in his past and the NEWS says that he  fought in Iraq and also was being observed as having mental problems. By looking at the astrological aspects for that day, Jan. 6 we see a most powerful combination,a Cardinal T Square which included Sun conjunct Pluto in Capricorn squaring Jupiter in Libra which opposes the Moon and Uranus in Aries. Strong Cardinal aspects require action and a Sun Pluto conjunction can bring up deeply held  feelings likely his sense of his masculinity and how he measures up or doesn’t to his father’s or commander’s expectations. The square to Jupiter in Libra brings out his sense of “fairness” or the lack there of and the opposition to Moon and Uranus can take that Plutonic energy that has been slow simmering in the background and propel it into an explosion that appears to come out of the blue! Without seeing the shooters chart I can’t be more specific but one can be sure that this aspect set off something in his chart on that day.

The energy of this T square has been stirring things up since the end of December which accounts for much of the chaos that we have been feeling  and seeing all around the world.

The Full Moon in Cancer on the 12th takes the T square and turns it into a Cardinal Cross! An aspect such as this brings a whole boat load of karma with it and in its wake as well. The Sun is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn which suggests that major changes will be required politically as well as in airports and air travel and in many ways the very structure of the political system as we know it is being shaken to it’s core. This Pluto Sun conjunction squares Uranus as well as asteroids,Pallas and Ceres and also squares Jupiter in Libra which is opposing Uranus in Aries. The Cancer Full Moon always awakens the emotions and the Divine Feminine in a big way. With all these turbulent aspects pushing in on Mama Moon’s sensitive nature and the recent explosion of woman hating and abuse expressed by Trump and his cronies, I can see an uprising of women and kind men who can’t help but feel disenfranchised and angry. Again Jupiter in Libra wants it all to be FAIR and fairness has been in short supply for women and people of color in the current political climate.

It’s not that we haven’t had extreme sexism,racism,homophobia and woman hating before. It seems that since having a black president and a woman running for Prez  that these progressive gains have stimulated reactionary backlash.Having a group of fascists to stir the pot of prejudice the door has been held wide open for all forms of bigotry. The right wing lunatic fringe feels safe making it open season on the have nots. It is no accident that anti Semitic desecration is showing up in so many places again and the Klan feels totally safe to run around in their sheets. We have had some funky Republicans like the Bushes but even they refuse to support this level of hatred.

Just as there was a time in the late sixties/early seventies when revolutionary zeal was peaking I believe that those of us who believe in freedom and progressive values and do not want to see all the improvements we have worked so hard to attain get rolled back. I can hear Bernice Johnson Reagan’s voice in my ear singing Ella’s Song.”We who believe in freedom cannot rest til it’s done.”

These very intense aspects do demand action and we will surely see more action as we approach the Inauguration. Still wonder just how much of a mystery that day will be.

One sour note is Saturn squaring Chiron which can tend to make us feel afraid to dream as big as we might. Good thing to do with this dissenting attitude is put it to work and make it show you where improvements can be made and make them. This transit has been going on since last month and is easing up as the month continues.

Jan. 13 and Venus and Neptune snuggle up for a dreamy and potentially romantic day and on the 14th Jupiter sextiles Saturn so we should have a bit of peace and more mellow energy during these times. On Jan 17 Mars conjoins Chiron which should activate the work done over the last month or so with the Saturn/Chiron Square which could have felt more depressive and hard on the physical body.  In whatever way you have been feeling less than adequate you can now push through obstacles.

I have already spoken at some length about Jan 20,Inauguration Day so I will move now to the New Moon in Aquarius on Jan 28th.The energy accentuates the new and unexpected and turns up the volume on mental pursuits. Should be interesting to see what new invention or global idea manifests at this time.Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury which means it takes the art of communication to a higher level. Mercury is feeling fresh and renewed since its retrograde journey earlier in the month and today it conjoins Pluto in Capricorn which intensifies its ability to dig deep and get to the core of the matter. What transformation can we look forward to? Perhaps the political arena well look very different. Time will tell.

ARIES – This is a very stimulating time but it is almost too much for me at times. Feeling the need for some peaceful balance in just he right amount so I can enjoy the full spectrum of what life affords.

TAURUS – Not a lot of Earth floating around not that earth ever floats so listen gang you need me to help you slide into something more comfortable and sensual. Ever hear of “Make Love Not War?” I not dating myself just wanted to suggest that good idea time for a Revival.

GEMINI – As usual I enjoy more stimulation particularly of the intellectual variety not that I want to limit my choices. Never want to do that. Lately it actually feels like my path has narrowed some and not sure if I am choosing this or it is being chosen for me.

CANCER – My emotions still feel like they are in the Cosmic Cuisinart as I roll with all the lightning fast shifts and changes. We Moonchildren like our comfort and yet we are very familiar with the rise and fall of the tides and can adapt as needed especially when a good
vortex presents itself.

LEO – I am the center of my universe which is as it should be OK maybe not all the time but I have learned to treasure my own light. I am sure some of you might do well to take a page from my book but of course we all need to write our own stories.I rather act mine out than write it down see ya stage right.

VIRGO – Neptune will not be satisfied until my mental processes and way of life is loose a a goose which doe not really suit me.Nothing wrong with order and lists they keep me in line and create my comfort zone.

LIBRA – I am always seeking balance but this month I might even find it. I think making good choices is the trick and i think I have learned to make them rather than waiting til they are forced on me because i am indecisive. Feels better

SCORPIO – Why do people seem to misunderstand me so easily? Am I just too deep or motives too hidden? Let’s face it I am just not a superficial gal who likes small talk. If a relationship of any kind doesn’t have some intensity why bother. really?

SAGITTARIUS – On a wing and a prayer I will take you there. So poetic and so true. My mind and spirit can take me places well beyond my humble abode which is good as air fare is getting kind of high and I do love my flights of fancy no matte where they take me.

CAPRICORN – Hard aspects are really shaking my tree but good. Feeling pretty grounded in spite of it all but just wondering when life is going to get easier. No one works as hard as I do so these are not the words of a slacker, just a world weary Capricorn is all.

AQUARIUS – Ooh my New Moon and birthday is coming up this month. I am most curious about what kind of mischief I can get into but seriously my idea of fun usually includes some act to save the planet or enhance my community. Still if you have any wild ideas let me know.

PISCES – Plenty of Neptunian energy to soothe my Piscean heart although I have had to truly get more comfortable with boundlessness. Learning to love what is and know that it is often the best thing possible and often guided by Spirit. Not my will,Thy will!
