If Your Birthday is Jan. 31
(The Day of Poetic Song) | Aquarius Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
An eclipse of the Moon on your birth anniversary says it’s time to focus on what matters most, which will mean sorting out your priorities. Your relationships must go beyond your mother’s example of what love and commitment are about, and it’s necessary that you let go of the baggage she may have loaded you down with. You can do it if you want. Mercury changes signs today as well, firing up your creative ambitions, stoking you with ideas and inviting you to act on them. Choose friends who respect your independence, above all else.
|Current Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
This week, there’s a Full Moon eclipse in your opposite sign Leo. Think of this as a tune-up of your relationships, particularly on the emotional level. It might feel like a pressure release.
|Current Aquarius Monthly Horoscope
You don’t need a conspiracy theory to understand your life. It’s a fact that the elements of your existence have come together by design, most of which was based on your own intentions, choices and actions.
Written in the Planets
With a total lunar eclipse making today’s blue Leo super-Full-Moon extra special, how are you planning to ride the energy? Be on the lookout for ways you might be able to step into a responsibility you didn’t think you were ready for, as well as how you feel called to feed and nurture yourself (and possibly others). The really wild thing about eclipses — and what we do in the couple weeks between them — is that the energetic signature accompanying what we do can ripple out and develop for months to come. So even though today is a Full Moon and not a New Moon, you might think of this whole two-week period as one of seeding. What do you wish to grow, and how can you touch on it today? (You can read more detailed coverage of the Full Moon and eclipse here.) Mercury entering Aquarius just a few minutes after this peak event may assist in opening your mind to new experiences, especially on an intuitive level or through friends.
