“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” William Shakespeare
We start out our Monday with waxing Luna still afloat in the mystical waters of Pisces, decidedly adding an “otherworld” feel to the day. Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, is also having its annual conjunction with Venus (ruler of love, beauty, art, and values), an alignment that’s occurring at 16 degrees of Pisces (at 3:00 pm).
With sweet Venus and transpersonal Neptune conjoined in the heavens, our capacity to display compassion or to show kindness or forgiveness to others is potentially enhanced. There can also be a deep yearning for an ideal or more selfless kind of love, as well as more of a general willingness to see others now in the best possible light, or to at least give them, the benefit of the doubt. On the shadow side, this influence can also make us more emotionally vulnerable, which could lead to, among other things, our being taken advantage of or deceived (including falling prey to self-deception).
On another level, Venus-Neptune energy is excellent for any creative endeavors, largely because “visionary” Neptune, the ruler of our imagination, is able to naturally tune into the non-physical realm with ease, thereby allowing artistic Venus to transmute that experience into actual physical form. “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo

Tarot Card For The Day:
It’s “The Lovers” card, which often comes up when we have choices to make about our relationships. Too, sometimes when this card appears, there’s an element of self-sacrifice (Neptune) attached to those choices. In general, The Lovers suggests a desire to want to be involved in either a relationship or something else that is meaningful, that allows a person a chance to get outside of themselves, to connect to something larger.
Also, when I was shuffling the cards, “The World” card fell out of the deck twice, along with the Ace of Swords. The World card is the very last of the Major Arcana cards (in the Tarot) and signifies the ending of a cycle. It also represents kind of a “pause period” before significant new action is undertaken. The World card can also foster an acceptance of life as it is, with all its many ups and downs. The Ace of Swords also suggests that we have good mental clarity at our disposal today (Mercury in Aquarius), as well as potential receptivity to incorporating, advancing, or entertaining new ideas.
Numerology For The Day:
The “27th” day of January suggests a focus on humanitarian issues, compassion, as well as a capacity to extend tolerance towards those who hold beliefs perhaps different from our own. (Moon in Pisces).
Born On This Day: Musician and composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in 1756 (d. in 1791). Mozart is quoted as saying: Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.
Hope it’s a good one!
