Daily General Horoscopes - Thursday 17 January
Today plays host to an overlapping of two different cosmic alignments, each positive and empowering. The alignment ending is between forces on the home and financial fronts. This is creating some positive conditions for financial matters on the home front, but its real power is the confidence, sense of direction and purpose this has created over the last few days. The other alignment is fuelling a passion for adventure and for life itself.
As the Moon wraps up its first visit to Taurus for the year, it is important to keep your head in the game, letting your imagination and even daydreams take the lead. For the Moon and the intuitive and imaginative responses it triggers can see around corners, in a way that you can't, which explains a sense of excitement and anticipation. What might feel like daydreaming now, is anything but. Silence that voice in your head that says 'that's not possible'.
From the get go there is a need to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, but also your head and any tendency to over think things silenced. For as the Moon returns for its first visit to Gemini for the year, it is all about letting your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses run their course without roadblocks. As an idea takes root or your imagination starts to veer in a certain direction, focus on the 'when, where and how' will act as a lead balloon.
As a Sign that is ruled by the Moon, you are more influenced by its movements in your chart and this will make today's shift quite pronounced. You are moving into some stunning days across the job and career fronts, but also for social matters, as well as for matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. Yet while the day begins on a connected note, by the time the Moon returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart you will be ready to put out the 'do not disturb' sign.
It is the Moon, in its final hours in your career sector that will create the potential for some professional pressure or work/life balance tension today and the timing nor the message couldn't be better. This is a fluke, for the major career developments ahead that the Moon is already able to lock into, won't face the same push back from your home and family life. In other words, where you are going a need for work/life balance is high, but there will be no policing. The only reminder is today and this won't be repeated.
Until now this new professional year is likely to have felt flat. Whether you have put this down to finding it hard to get motivated after the holiday period or a lack of enthusiasm on your part, this has, in fact, come from the professional gods. That starts to change from today, as the Moon returns to your career sector, just days before the Sun's return to your work sector over the weekend. The next few days provide a valuable chance to recharge your professional instincts and imagination.
While forces across the income, work and career fronts have dialled back over the holiday period, they are simply taking a break and will roar back into life next month. Sensing that this respite is temporary and that this new professional year is simply on idle, playful and adventurous forces are ready to pounce. Ahead of the Sun's return to a playful part of your chart over the weekend, the Moon returns for its first visit to an adventurous part of your chart for the year.
Timing is everything and not just because of the conditions it allows you to capture, but the message this sends. It is during the Moon's final hours in your relationship sector that Mercury, the planet of communication moves into his final week in your communication sector. In real terms, Mercury is fortuitously there in order to give the Moon's emotional responses a voice. Yet this is also an omen of the major support between communication and relationship forces over the coming months.
Just days before the Sun is due to return to your communication sector over the weekend and with Mercury, the planet of communication returning next week, the Moon returns to fuel your emotional responses on the relationship front. This could be seen as too early, but it is a chance to let the Moon fuel your emotional responses without having to give them a voice. Yet with the knowledge that the communication gods are literally just days away.
In the final days of your birthday month and with Mercury moving into his final week in Capricorn today, this is the point in each year when it is time to get serious about your game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Yet, while there is likely to be a sense of confidence and a real sense that this is the year when you get to take your power back, there could be a sense of procrastination. Yet this is not because you can't make up your mind and more because so much is still unfolding and evolving.
In the lead up to the Sun's return to Aquarius over the weekend and the start of your birthday month and new solar year, it is always important to find time to hear yourself think. There is a danger in taking this too seriously, with navel gazing leading you to dwell too much on the past. It is always a balancing act. If you have spent too much time in your head over recent weeks, today's playful lunar vibes bring the perfect distraction.
A lot of things that we see as problems aren't problems at all and are instead opportunities. This is the case with an apparent problem today. Today marks the start of an exciting alignment between income and career forces that will remain exact until early next week but is also a taste of things to come. Yet today is also the final day of an alignment between playful and adventurous forces. Rather than create a work/life balance challenge, this is an opportunity to either find a balance between work and play or bring all these exciting forces together.
