All is not as it seems today. Mars squares up to Neptune, which usually suggests deceit. Energies may also be confusing; even if everyone is honest, it's still not necessarily clear what should be done. For the Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, it's important not to be gullible, especially financially. For all of us, ask questions and seek clarification if you're not sure. Looking ahead, January ends on a bit of a stubborn note, with the Moon squaring up to Saturn.
Today's Aries Moon is all knight in shining armor - which means the day could be frustrating if there are no damsels requiring rescue. To avoid wasting this energy, find something to stand up for, or someone to defend. It's brave, bold, pioneering energy, especially for the Fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius - so it would be such a shame not to make a difference with it. Looking ahead, February begins with a Venus-Pluto sextile, smoothing over relationships with authority figures.
As the Moon trines Mars, there's a lot of energy in the air - possibly a little bit too much for the Fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. It's all a rush but some signs will find it invigorating. Whether you love it or hate it, one thing is essential with this kind of energy - do take good care of yourself and your safety. All that pressure and rush can lead to careless accidents. Looking ahead, Sunday is a constructive, grown up day, with plenty of Moon-Saturn trine energy.
