Daily Reading Jan 28

Thu Jan 28

There are several significant transits today, as well as a full moon.

Full Moon in Leo: We see ourselves clearly, key ideas and issues are in the social “spotlight”

Venus Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn: How we love ourselves, how we see our bodies and how we care for ourselves may experience a seemingly magical transformation

Jupiter Sun Conjunction in Aquarius: There is a great deal of communication about big new ideas. Someone famous may play a role.

Additionally, this weekend, Mercury stations retrograde.

Today’s cards remind us to not get carried away with our emotions during this challenging time.

Sometimes there is no action to be taken in a given situation, and we are asked instead to sit with our feelings and work through how we really regard the situation.

Many things make me sad, or angry, but since those are “undesirable” emotions it can be tempting to gloss over those things, to minimize their impact, even to put on a happy face and bypass the work of dealing with such challenging issues.

But, if I turn away, how will I ever understand my anger, my sadness, my frustration? How will I know what inspires those feelings in me and why?

Recent events can feel like one long string of discomfort. In the midst of such disruption, we do have the chance to see ourselves in a different light. Of course we must pace ourselves, we must rest, we must go at our own pace.

But we must not give up the fight for a more just and equitable world.
