WEDNESDAY, 1/12/22

Today, the moon is in Taurus—one of its favorite signs—and links up with the sun, Neptune, and Pluto. As a result of these connections, we’ll need to rely solely on our intuition. Emotions could get intense because we’re being shown things that we’ve never seen before, at least not from this perspective.

Neptune’s presence will heighten our intuition, meaning we could be feeling things that we never knew we could feel and seeing things that we didn’t even know existed.

Pluto is urging us to make a change for the better, which could be hard because we’re all creatures of habit and don’t like to make evolutionary moves on a whim.

This luminary aligns with the sun, putting relationships, money, and self-care into focus. You could find new and unique ways to nurture yourself and others during this time. You might decide to take a long nap after work, eat a decadent meal, or enjoy a luxurious bath to unwind and decompress from the intense emotional energy of the day.

There may be an emotional dip — something like an emotional hangover — today. The Moon goes void-of-course late this morning at 11:38 AM PST and won’t arrive in Gemini until 7:07 PM PST. It isn’t easy to get comfortable or settle in to something practical to keep us occupied. Energy is significantly dissipated, perhaps because we are beginning to fully grasp the immensity of the tasks that we are facing. Some may be dwelling in disappointment, while others may struggle to find something tangible to push against. Our determination may seem to waver but if we can restore some sense of faith, we will recognize that we must continue to take one single step at a time in order to make the proverbial journey of a thousand miles.

JAN 9: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN ARIES: The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.

JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.

JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.


Balance comes easily to Flamingo Spirit, who sees what was and what will be and stands strong in the face of uncertainty. You can be informed by what came before and plan for a future yet to be, but do not resist Flamingo Spirit’s call to be fully present in the now, where the real magic happens.

With one foot in the life you are moving away from and one in the future as you become the one who leads the life of your highest intentions, you must make peace with the fact that you are not fully in either place. Embrace the in-between!

The presence of Flamingo Spirit is also a sign that your creativity is arising within you and opportunities are beginning to present themselves. Remain here in a balanced state of mind, for there is much to know and learn before going forward with new plans.

You can trust this moment and yourself as you take in what you see and become aware of all that you are experiencing in this in-between time.
