The Moon is the fastest-moving planet. Its changing sign and phase provide clues to the cosmic mood. If you can tune in to the Moon, you’re better able to align your actions with celestial possibilities. Here’s an overview of the cosmic mood and your planning guide for January 2014. Happy New Year!
January 1-2, Capricorn New Moon
The New Year starts with a potent Capricorn new Moon aligning with Pluto. Total transformation is possible as you get obsessive about banishing bad habits and replacing them with better ones.
January 3-4, Aquarius Moon
Individuality is heightened as the Aquarius Moon encourages a forward-thinking approach. Be true to you; conforming is less important than being authentic. Make an unconventional-but-right-for-you choice.
January 5-6, Pisces Moon
Dreams blend with practical reality as the Pisces Moon helps you connect with the vision for your hard work. Balance between effort and imagination is required. Try to connect inspiration to manifestation.
January 7-8, Aries First Quarter Moon
This dynamic quarter Moon invites action and progress. Your choices can lead you forward, so put your heart into everything you do. An impatient energy can help you deal with responsibility decisively.
January 9-10, Taurus Moon
A double-Earth combination will help you focus on the real world. Your body, health and finances can benefit from extra attention now. A slow-and-steady attitude is essential. Patience helps you stay-the-course and follow through to completion.
January 11-13, Gemini Moon
Communication, connection and conversation help provide new ideas. Share your thoughts and discuss your expectations. This chatty Moon influence may make you curious. This is a great energy for learning, writing or teaching.
January 14-15, Cancer Full Moon
The Cancer full Moon highlights family, the past and safety. It’s about protecting what you love and need. Safe choices are important, as is choosing between personal or professional priorities. Follow your heart!
January 16-18, Leo Moon
A little decadence is called for. The Leo Moon craves luxury and extravagance, so splash out on something special, just because you can. Hair, beauty, image and leadership maybe important topics. Celebrate your talents.
January 19-20, Virgo Moon
Details, order and routine count now. Take time to sort out the basics and life will flow smoothly going forward. Work and well-being routines benefit from a revamp.
January 21-23, Libra Moon
Double-Air energy highlights friendships, relationships and the value of networking. Make the effort to connect with likeminded people, or compromise in a close partnership. Teamwork is the key to success.
January 24-25, Scorpio Third Quarter Moon
If push comes to shove, will you hold strong or bend? A firm energy highlights the value of continuity. Emotional truth and the need for honesty may push you to reveal more than you have in the past.
January 26-27, Sagittarius Moon
An adventurous energy can help you get out of your comfort zone. Travel, learning and discovery are highlighted, so whatever is on your mind, think outside the box. A new location can work wonders to help you find perspective.
January 28-29, Capricorn Moon
The balsamic Capricorn Moon will help you finalize outstanding business dealings, and clarify long-term plans. A completion energy helps you push towards the finish line but in suitably professional (aka Capricorn) style.
January 30-31, Aquarius New Moon
The Aquarius New Moon will inspire a fresh start -- especially around being true to yourself. Authenticity and individuality matter most, so forget tradition and make the choice that’s right for you.
