Your birthday chart encourages you to follow your highest excitement: to honor what genuinely piques your interest and passion. That’s how to line up with the liberating, creative potential available now. Even small steps taken to act on innovative ideas can lead to greater satisfying developments than you suppose. You’ve been under extreme pressure for a long time, and self-care is essential. Consider responsible nutrition, and emotional nurturance, part of your life’s work. Relationships and self-expression are highlighted this year, and you want to bring all of yourself to the game.

Written in the Planets for Wednesday, Jan. 15
Typically when the Moon is in Libra, there’s a tendency to avoid direct confrontations, and weighing the pros and cons of everything can lead to hesitation. But today’s Libra Moon will begin squaring all of the Capricorn planets.
Those Moon squares start with Pholus (a powerful catalyst for transformation and far-reaching effects) and Jupiter (expansion, optimism) in Cap. Square aspects describe inner tension, and a need to take action to resolve it.
You might ask yourself what the most elegant, compassionate solutions would be to any issue you’re facing. What’s the most diplomatic way you can make choices and move toward your goals? How can you partner with someone to build your next steps, to mutual benefit?
Note also that Venus in Pisces is making a sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus (the sign Venus rules). It describes emotional availability (Venus) working in concert with unexpected changes to routine (Uranus). In other words, seek out stimulating friends, or try something new sexually (or both). Again, think mutual benefit — but with a little more electricity.
