January 20-26 2014 Astrology Forecast: Goddesses Oppose

mystic rectangle 2 JPGThis week’s prime “skylight” is the peak of a Mystic Rectangle incorporating Juno, Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Chiron and Pluto. Three of its component aspects are also exact this week, including a Juno-Pallas Athena opposition. This offers the opportunity to harmonize very different ways of using feminine power.

Communication is also highlighted, with Mercury making a flowing trine to Mars and a challenging square to Saturn.

Mystic Rectangle

The six-week Mystic Rectangle that started on 12/27 peaks today before wrapping up on 2/4. This flowing yet energizing aspect pattern began with Pallas Athena, Jupiter, Chiron and Pluto, then added Juno on 1/16.

The centerpiece of this enhanced aspect pattern is the opposition between Juno and Pallas Athena. This flowing Mystic Rectangle is an opportunity for you to harmonize these very different ways of using feminine power.

1/24 (Fri)

Today’s quintile between the Aquarian Sun and Saturn is like an alternate take of last week’s quintile between the Capricornian Sun and Uranus on 1/16. The archetypal forces are the same, just arranged differently. (Aquarius = Uranus and Saturn = Capricorn in the astrology alphabet.) So last week’s interpretation — an abundance of intuitive flashes with practical applications — works here too.

Today’s trine between Pallas Athena and Pluto is part of the Mystic Rectangle that peaked on Wednesday.

You can initiate lively, harmonious and unorthodox communication with Aquarian Mercury trine Libran Mars. Starting a conversation with an unconventional person you might not normally have spoken to could result in a pleasant surprise.

1/25 (Sat)

Today’s conjunction between Juno and Chiron can bring healing to committed relationships, even if it has to trigger an old wound to get the process started. This aspect is part of the Mystic Rectangle that peaked on Wednesday.

With Aquarian Mercury square Saturn, ingenious ideas may initially be met with resistance from the powers-that-be. But don’t let the inertia of the status quo deter you from moving ahead with an important breakthrough!

1/26 (Sun)

Two asteroid goddesses oppose each other today: Pallas Athena and Juno. As I wrote on 1/16, Juno the Queen represents marriage and commitment, fertility and sexuality. Pallas Athena, the Sacred Warrior, represents feminine assertiveness, strategic cunning and practical creativity. Their opposition creates an opportunity for you to harmonize these different ways of using feminine power.

This opposition is part of the Mystic Rectangle that peaked on Wednesday.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

  • 1/20, 3:56 pm – 1/21, 7:45 am (Libra)
  • 1/22, 10:51 pm – 1/23, 4:45 pm (Scorpio)
  • 1/25, 8:56 am – 10:14 pm (Sagittarius)

  1. Hello Benjamin,
    Always enjoy your forecasts. Thank you so much!
    This Goddess opposition is very interesting :)
    I’m fortunate that each of the planets positions are favorable in my chart…
    I also enjoyed last week’s forecast very much as well.
    Sometimes there’s just a sentence or a paragraph…etc, which makes the bells go off…in a good way lol…

    I hope all is great for you and your partner and in all your valuable offerings you reach people with.
    Namaste’ Dear One <3
