Trust and Faith
Uranus turns direct on Thursday, January 14 at 12:36am (6°43’ Taurus). Its shadow period lasts until May 1, 2021. This degree is represented in the Sabian symbols by “the woman of Samaria at the ancestral well.” After many months of living day by day, shifting our paradigms, looking for different options, and being thrown off balance, we are now entering a new level of stability and normalcy. From this renewed basis, clear from all that is no longer necessary for our evolution, we are required to trust ourselves and have faith in the future.
Mercury turns retrograde on Saturday, January 30 at 7:52am (26°27’ Aquarius) and will remain there until Saturday, February 20 at 4:52pm. Its shadow period will remain until March 13. This degree is represented in the Sabian symbols by “an ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets.” The next three weeks are perfect for balancing the old and the new and branching out in completely new directions. We are asked to break free from old routines, express our uniqueness, and completely reinvent ourselves. The more courage we have to leave our comfort zones, the greater the rewards will be. This is also a time to think of our fellow men and women and create communities with common visions where people support each other and respect each other’s independence. We might show greater interest in the existence of life on other planets.
