This week’s astrological events to note: The fiery Full Moon in Leo, and the year’s first Mercury retrograde.

<<<<< 点击阅读中文版本 >>>>>

Full Moons bring us the energies of culmination and illumination. Leo is a fixed Fire sign and the least hot-tempered of the Fire signs, but this Full Moon in Leo is square Mars (planetary ruler of conquest) and opposite Jupiter (planetary ruler of expansion).

So on 28 or 29 Jan, depending where you live in the world, the Full Moon in Leo will offer you a boost of energy and self-confidence to carry out your plans. However, the influence of Mars and Jupiter could cause some to become over-confident or over-aggressive. (This week also brings a slightly heightened risk of arguments that can spiral out of control.) Be sure that your plans are solidly structured before you manifest them into reality. And be mindful that not all fights are worth picking – keep your focus on your goals, and don’t waste your energy otherwise.

From 30 Jan to 20 Feb, we have our first Mercury retrograde of 2021. Mercury rules travel, communication, and technology; when it retrogrades, back up your computers, avoid signing new contracts or purchasing new electronic products, and watch out for hiccups in travel plans (this includes your daily commute to work!).

Mercury will retrograde mostly through Aquarius, the sign which rules community, humanitarian causes, and modern technologies (especially social media). Be very mindful not to get involved in online disputes on any social media platform – these could get very ugly – and take good care of your tech devices.

Onward to the reading!

TAROT

LEFT: KNIGHT OF WANDS. The Knight of Wands usually indicates fast, decisive action or movement. It’s associated with passion, creativity, and courage. When this Knight appears, there could be a sudden arrival (or departure) of a factor or dynamic in a given situation. 

This Knight can also herald a rise in impulsivity and reactivity. Be on the lookout for quick tempers, hasty ambitions and rushed passions – all of which could lead you down the wrong path if temperance and wisdom are not first consulted. 

MIDDLE: EIGHT OF SWORDS. You could be feeling stuck when the Eight of Swords appears. This card represents a situation where insufficient information or confidence is holding you back from making decisions. Be careful that you are not allowing a negative mindset to trap you into thinking your hands are tied. Consider other perspectives. Could there be another way out of the situation you’re in? Or perhaps another way of looking at it?

Remember this wisdom from Wayne Dyer: “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

You have the power to shift the energies in a challenging situation by consciously transforming the way you perceive it, and the way you perceive your own role in it. 

RIGHT: THE HIEROPHANT REVERSED. The Hierophant, when upright, represents the power and authority of structured organisations. It’s all about following the rules and honouring those in charge. 

Once it’s upside down, though, creativity and curiosity become the norm. Feel free to rock the boat, ask tough questions, and think out of the box when generating innovative solutions. 

Remember: there are no sacred cows with the reversed Hierophant. What’s sacred is your soul, your spirit, your right to choose and pursue happiness. Move forward with courage, and all the best to you.

第七十七签

梦中说得是多财
声名云外总虚来
水远山遥难信实
贵人指点笑颜开
It’s said you’re rich – in your dreams.
Your fame is inevitably hollow. 
It’s hard to imagine that faraway things can be real. 
Only a benefactor’s help will put a smile on your face.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)

When this lot is drawn, you are advised to keep yourself grounded in reality, and to avoid pursuing false hopes or vain delusions. Don’t fret – assistance is on its way. Things will eventually get better as they always do. That said, manage your expectations wisely, especially with regards to future plans.

Remember: a delay is not necessarily a rejection. If you’re willing to think out of the box and enlist the help of others, you might not even be delayed at all.

It’s time to get creative.

Have a great week ahead!

这周的重要星象就是火热的狮子满月和今年的第一轮水星逆行。

满月会带给我们高潮和光照的能量。狮子座是固定火象星座,在众火象星座里算是脾气最不火爆的一个。然而这次的狮子满月和掌管了征服的火星形成四分相,同时和掌管着扩张的木星形成对分。

以你目前所在的地理位置为准,在1月28日或者29日时,狮子满月会为你带来能量和自信帮助你执行自己的计划。但是火星和木星的影响可能会导致一些人过于自信或者太气盛。这周也会有冲突爆发并且失控的高风险。因此你必须要确保自己的计划的基础稳固才能开始实现它们。要记住不是每一场战斗都是值得的,把你的专注力放在自己的目标上,不要随便浪费自己的精力。

从1月30日至2月20日,我们将会进入2021年的第一轮水星逆行。水星掌管着出游,沟通和科技。当水星逆行时,请确保自己的电脑资料等都有做好备份,尽量避免签订新合同或者购买新的科技产品,还有所有出游的计划都会遇到阻碍,这也包括了你每天上下班的行程。

水星这次会多逆行于掌管着社区,人道主义事业或者机构,以及现代科技(尤其是社交媒体)。要小心注意别在任何一种社交媒体平台上被网上争执所牵连,这些多数都会撕破脸并且很难看,还有就是要照顾好你的科技产品。

【左:权杖骑士】

权杖骑士通常都意指快速果断的行动。这张牌和热情,创意以及勇气相关。当权杖骑士出现的时候,在一个情况里可能会有忽然出现或者是消失的因素或者动态。

这骑士也可是导致冲动性和反应性的增加。要小心火爆的脾气,短期仓促的抱负和急促昙花一现的热情。如果你没有运用节制和智慧,这些因素都可让你走向错误的道路。

【中:宝剑8】

当宝剑8出现的时候,你可能是觉得自己似乎被困住了。这张牌代表着一个因缺乏情报或者自信而导致你无法做出决定的情况。要注意不要让负面想法困住自己,考虑其他角度和方案。或许你目前所处的情况有其他的出路?或者是可以以另一个角度来看待?

记住韦恩戴尔的一句话:“如果你改变看事物的方式,事物也会因此而改变。

你有能力改变一个艰难情况的能量,只要你改变看待的角度和自己在其中所扮演的角色。

【右:教皇(逆位)】

正位的教皇代表着一个有结构的组织的力量和权力,和遵从规则和尊敬领导相关。

当教皇处于逆位的时候,创意和好奇心则变成了稀松平常之事。你可以尽情地做出改变,提问那些人们不敢问的问题,以及发挥创意来解决问题。

记住,在逆位的教皇面前没有所谓的神圣的牛只。只有你的灵魂,你的精神和你的选择以及追逐自己的幸福的权力才是最神圣的。带着你的勇气前进,愿你能得到最好的结果。

【观音签:第七十七签】

梦中说得是多财
声名云外总虚来
水远山遥难信实
贵人指点笑颜开

这支签的出现告诉你要好好地脚踏实地,避免追逐虚假的希望或者徒劳的虚幻。不要紧张,救援即将来临。事情终是会有所好转的。话虽如此,你还是必须要好好处理自己的期望,尤其是和自己的将来相关的。

记住,一次的延迟并不代表被拒绝。如果你愿意更灵活一点和寻求帮助,你的计划或许根本不会被延迟。

是发挥你的创意的时候了。
