Fitness, Wellness and Happy Hormones

By Hilma.L.Inkono

When it comes to fitness and wellness, most people are aware that exercising is good for one’s health, however intentionally implementing physical activity into one’s routine is an entirely different battle on its own.  Having the motivation and discipline to regularly break a sweat regardless of your body type, is a recurring choice you have to constantly make, which is easier said than done. Nonetheless, there are endless benefits to working out, whereby improvements can be seen in the physical, mental and social realm of one’s life, to mention a few.

So, to set us off into the world of physical wellness, I reached out to two fitness enthusiasts with completely different styles of working out.

Horoscopes for Tuesday, 12 January – Monday, 18 January

On Tuesday 12th January Mercury in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Then the next day, 13th January there is a new moon in Capricorn (Sun conjunct Moon in Capricorn) at 23˚13”which is an Aquarian degree. This full moon is also conjunct Pluto so there will be strong emotions concerning power struggles. I feel this will highlight the themes that have been coming up since the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction just before Christmas. This is a great day to be productive though, that’s the best way to utilize this energy especially since the week gets chaotic.

Horoscope Tuesday 29, December 2020 – Tuesday, 5 January 2021

Astrologically speaking, this is a pretty chilled week. I say this because January is going to take us for a ride. I need you ALL to savor that before Mars moves through his very last degrees of Aries. Mars has been in Aries for SIX months because he went retrograde (backwards) in that sign. The last degrees are going to bring up the themes that have perpetually been coming up for the last 6 months, most likely the thing that’s been pissing you off yet somehow this thing is a deeply sensitive topic for you.  Saturn and Jupiter remain in their conjunction on the 29th with just an orb of 1 degree, if you have been feeling sluggish and tired lately this will be passing as Jupiter moves ahead of Saturn this week and with the moon moving from Gemini into Cancer at 12:29 am which will feel a lot like being jumpstarted, but with emotions. The moon is building up to a full moon in Cancer on 30th December.

Weekly Horoscope: Monday 2 November – Sunday 8 November

This week starts off with an aspect from last week square Saturn which will shadow us all week. This is because even though Mercury moves fast so transits are usually fast however this week (Tue, 3) Mercury finally goes direct (yay!) which means this aspect will be repeating itself. Last week both Mercury and Saturn were in retrograde which means this stressful and frustrating aspect was more internalized however now that Mercury is direct we can communicate these frustrations. Expect projects that have delayed in the last 3 weeks to have some fresh energy, enough to bring it back to life, suddenly and promptly however, be wary because Mercury is still in his shadow which means there is still a tinge of chaos in the air. But, on the other side of the full moon we are in a better position to pick up what we struggled with last week.
