Have the holidays left you feeling stressed, unmotivated, and disconnected? Breathe a sigh of relief because the transits you’re going to experience this week bring out a sense of connection, harmony, and the drive to make the most of this fresh start!
While the transits occurring this week are minor, they can make a big impact on how you feel about this new year with all of the possibilities and potential opportunities it brings.
On January 4th, we get a boost of motivation as the Moon, currently in Aquarius, sits in harmony with Saturn, also currently in Aquarius. While this transit can bring a slightly heavy mood, Saturn urges self-discipline and helps you push forward with your tasks and goals.
On January 5th, Venus – the planet of love and beauty – dances in harmony with Neptune, the planet of dreams, mysticism, and illusions. This transit brings out the sensual, compassionate side of you that longs for intimacy and closeness.
This is a great time for bonding with your partner or opening your heart to new spiritual connections if you’re single. Spending time with friends, shopping for new decorations for yourself or your home, or listening to music are also activities that can boost your mood under this influence!
Towards the end of the week is where we find the most drive to start anew and focus on a fresh start, when the First Quarter Moon occurs in Aries on January 9th.
Everything about this transit urges you to let go of the past and generate new energy for future goals and dreams. It’s a fantastic time to get physical and let exercise help you find even more ambition and fiery energy.
