Astrology of the Day – Sun square Uranus - Sunday 14th January 2018

Sun square Uranus - Lightening storm


The Moon remains in the sign of Sagittarius for the most of this day. This is a free and easy day ahead of us, and one where our friendships will be just as important, if not more so than our relationships. Sagittarius experiences the highs and lows of life more than any other sign, and as a result this may be a day of fluctuating emotions.

All of the aspects today between the planet will focus on two of them, Uranus and Chiron, the rebel and the maverick of the heavens and so this will be not only be a day of doing things in a very unique and different manner but also you may either upset some people with your actions, or bring some healing into your life or to others. Now the first of these connections will see Venus the planet of love and values forming a sextile to Chiron. This is a powerful connection because healing can be given through the love that you show and give out and the values that you can extend to someone else. Venus is in the sign of Capricorn now and down to earth attitudes can be the best way of connecting with people. Good old fashioned caring and compassion can be very effective now. The Moon then makes a trine to Uranus, and we can concentrate on updating something. There is a cool electric vibe from this trine that allows us to spark things and ideas into life. Again with the Capricorn bias in the sky above us, whatever updates we need will work best if we enhance what we already have rather than throw away what is there, and start completely from scratch.

There are two more aspects to come on this day of change. The first sees the Moon make a square to Chiron on the back of the Venus sextile. For a brief while we may be caught in an upsetting situation or feel uncertain of what is correct. Events going on around us may make us feel on edge or emotionally irritable. Pretty much at the same time, the Sun is forming a square to Uranus. This aspect only adds the the tension this evening, and we may feel very unstable or in need of a change. There might be a lot of stress and worry surrounding us, as if an electrical storm is heading our way, and we are going to be engulfed in a chaotic situation. Let it happen. If we stubbornly stand in the way of the inevitable, then we won't be able to move forwards in the future, so grab on tight, protect yourself and let the storm blow itself out as later on the Moon will move into stable Capricorn, the winds of change will die down, and normality will resume.
