The moon is in Virgo today. The planetary ruler of Virgo is Mercury, which is currently in retrograde motion. This planetary backspin could have a direct affect on our emotional well-being throughout the day. Logic and reason won’t hold any importance now, as we lean into our intuition and emotions.
This could give us all a desire to evolve and move forward in life—but with care. Add in Venus retrograde, and we can expect the vibe to make us feel out of touch with reality and more intuitive as well as mentally and physically exhausted.
Recent changes at work could make you lose your professional footing. All the more reason for you to discuss the future of your position with your boss this week. Schedule a meeting to have a heart-to-heart talk about your role in the company.
The flip side is that you’ve been working immensely hard to reach all your goals at lightning speed, and now you’re burned out. The lesson you’re learning is that you have to spend equal time focusing on your professional aspirations and self-care. Then, you won’t feel so bogged down from overextending your energy.
Venus has begun to slow down significantly, ahead of next week’s direct station. We may feel some extra room to explore the ways in which we interact with others today, with an interest in breaking free of old habits. In some way or another, today may represent a breaking free from old, dead relationships or established routines that no longer serve their initial purpose. Today’s atmosphere requires courage because when we break free from the old without having something ready to take it’s place, there is a void that can seem quite scary and uncomfortable. We may not actually recognize what is happening until it’s too late to go back.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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.
When Buffalo Spirit visits you with a message of protection, he is asking you to shift your thinking from poverty consciousness to one where you trust the universe will provide. Have you been falling into financial insecurity, worrying that there will not be enough money in the future?
Have you been stressing and feeling sorry for yourself, worrying that because you have no romantic relationship now, you will never have one? Do you see scarcity where there is, in fact, abundance?
Are you comparing yourself to others and falling short? Self-pity, entitlement, fear, and lack are all “thought viruses” that seduce you into darkness.
Buffalo Spirit nudges you to make a gratitude list and be mindful of your thoughts at this time.
Even if outer events have happened to challenge your beliefs in abundance, outer conditions are temporary. If you are suffering from the malaise of fear that you are impoverished, realize that it is only poverty of perception and perspective. Prayer, communion with your Higher Power, and gratitude coupled with compassionate, selfless service will snap you right out of it. Give to someone who has less than you. Be thankful for the tiniest things and say affirmations. Then you will remember abundance is the true nature of the world.
