Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “We are just one day from the first of a three-part Saturn/Uranus squares where we feel the burden of our responsibilities to others and a desire to abandon ship and be free. We need Saturn as it reminds us that love is enough but not sufficient to pay bills and do the things that must be done each day. We need Uranus telling us to break free too, because it’s healthy to have personal space and to maintain a semblance of autonomy, no matter how tightly woven our love bonds are.”
Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “A delightful Sun/Moon link suggest that we can feel very “together” today as head and heart will be in alignment. Rather than logic and emotions fighting for dominance they can happily work in harmony.”
Astrologer Lynn Hayes of Astrodynamics examines the effects of Saturn square Uranus. Hayes writes: “A strong Uranus alignment can be destabilizing since the very nature of Uranus is to break up stuck energy that hold us back from fully opening into the new paradigm. Over the next few days it might be helpful to remain aware of these conflicting energies, especially if you find yourself feeling ungrounded or experiencing other discomfort.”
Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the implications of the Aries Moon square Pluto in Capricorn. Gilchrist writes: “Moon/Pluto can stir up latent hostilities or power plays as passion intensifies. Watch for eruptions of anger, competitiveness or jealousy that push emotional reactions to the extreme.”
Those born today are born under the Sun sign of Aquarius (January 20 – February 18).
Astrologer Georgia Nichols writes: Exciting changes and opportunities await you this year. Count on new adventures! If you can, explore opportunities to travel. Do whatever you can to expand your world through learning. Welcome change! Your personal freedom is your goal this year.
