Astrology for Feminists: Week of Jan. 30-Feb. 5
This week’s Astrology for Feminists says: this is the time of our Lunar phase to get out there and make things happen!
by The Mystical Sister
We are now in the phase of the Moon that bolsters action and movement. This is the time of our Lunar phase to get out there and make things happen! The get-up-and-go energy will be amplified Tuesday afternoon through Thursday evening, with the Moon moving through Aries,. Tuesday through Thursday are great days to get stuff done, and Thursday through Saturday will urge us to take time out for self-care and chilling. Saturday evening and Sunday may be the most talkative times of the week, so you may want to plan to engage with others at these times. Also this Wednesday, in the Pagan tradition, is Imbolc, which marks the halfway point to spring!

Tuesday through Thursday evening you will begin to feel more grounded again as the Moon moves into your sign!
