This January month features a potent opening weekend with the CapricornNew Moon on the 2nd in trine with the trickster archetype of Uranus. Because Uranus is still square to Saturn, representing a long-term theme of the previous year that is still active heading into 2022, the potent push-pull between conservative and progressive viewpoints continues to incite. This will play out as a strong role this month, both in individual ways and as reflected in the stark political divides characterizing the larger collective. We do though have to give progressive Uranus extra credit during this powerful month, because of the trine from Sun and Moon in the New Moon timing, and also due to the square that Uranus receives from Mercury as it stations retrograde in the sign of Aquarius on the 14th. The Mercury Retrograde period can last five weeks or more when you take the extra two weeks of Mercury’s retrograde shadow period into account, so it is best to remain introspective, to watch and to wait, choosing not to “push the river” until after mid-February. With Uranus so prominent, unexpected events and ideas continue to surprise us, and to provide us with unique realizations.
Along with the prominent themes outlined above we also have the Venus retrograde period that began on the 19th of December, in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, and continued through the holiday season. This signaled relationship changes, continuing in January. In the current month, Venus remains retrograde throughout, still in various ways making a chime with transformational Pluto. There are also therefore available in this January month strong indications for relationship transformation of all kinds, including the metamorphosis taking place within the depths of each of our own psyches.
As the January month continues to unfold, there is another hugely transformational moment with the CancerFull Moon of Monday, January 17th. This is due to the Full Moon in late Cancer is opposed to the Sun in Capricorn in close conjunction with Pluto. The middle of January, then, with the Mercury station of the 14th and this dynamic Full Moon, will be a significant time for reassessing where in fact you are, and where you are heading, in this new month and year.
As the year gets going there is also to consider the impact of new planetary archetypes beyond Pluto that I have been researching. These officially named planets, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake, have been proven quite significant in charts. Eris has been prominent all last year by remaining in close square with Pluto, and can be characterized as a Feminine Warrior energy for articulating and acting upon your deepest principles, while Haumea and Makemake represent different aspects of profound connection to Nature, and to natural law, elements of right action and right relationship that are vital to the emerging cultural evolution of this 21st century. These latter two are emphasized in the current month, with Makemake remaining exactly opposite to Chiron, the Wounded Healer, while Haumea is triggered by the CancerFull Moon. It is clear that issues of our connection to Nature such as dealing with climate change will continue to arise ever more urgently in the coming month, and in the 2022 year. Recent weather extremes have wreaked havoc in nearly all parts of the United States, for example.
Our beleaguered planet needs our human help, here in this second decade of a pivotal new century, and it seems more and more clear that a change in consciousness is the necessary pre-condition for that help beginning to arrive. In addressing this necessary rise in consciousness, I believe that Astrology can represent a fundamental building-block in the formation of a new and more vital society that is trying to emerge through the difficult and chaotic times we are currently living through.

The January month is always a special time of the year for you, Aries, and this 2022 version is even more complex than usual. You are seeking the ultimate meaning of what you do out in the world and how this corresponds to inner priorities that you are attempting to better uncover. Stemming from the timing of the recent Winter Solstice and punctuated by the CapricornNew Moon of January 2nd, you have been engaged in reviewing the impact of important partners upon your life. Relationship events and realizations perhaps have provided significant clues that you are still trying to decipher, as you continue to discover new facets of this important dynamic. Your plans and goals are as well a moving target for you at this turning of the year. Mid-month, when Mercury shifts to retrograde motion, surprising twists and turns of your societal associations are re-amplified. You will not want to rush to judgment regarding these matters but rather to witness, and to wait, even through to the middle of February. This is as the circles of connection continue to revolve around you.
January truly arrives for you with a New Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd announcing a fresh cycle for career and vocational aspirations. With the world’s changing landscape, you may be re-thinking your overall direction this month and adjusting your stance to adapt with the changing circumstance. Remember that the night is at its darkest around the New Moon and you may not be able to see quite yet the shape of things to come. The intentions planted at this time could yield exciting new opportunities. However, the hopes and ideas you have about what you want need to be fertilized with authenticity. You may spend the first half of the month clarifying what you want or change your mind a few times. Uranus in Taurus is transiting in the part of your chart that relates to your personal resources and forms a supportive trine with the New Moon in Capricorn. The unpredictability of this time is emphasized, and might be altering your values and priorities, realigning you towards your own truly unique individual path. This month, trusting your intuition and thinking outside of the box could help you get a sense of where you want to go, especially when it comes to career and money matters while sticking to a single trajectory may be half the battle.
Mercury also enters Aquarius on the 2nd which could increase the pace of your social interaction. You might find yourself busy catching up with old acquaintances. Networking could potentially open doors you thought were closed.
The second weekend of the month could be clarifying as Venus retrograde meets the Sun in Capricorn for her inferior conjunction. Even if you still feel unsure of what you want at this time, you could experience a renewed sense of faith that things are as they should be.
During the second week of the month, Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune with the Sun sextile Neptune highlights your imaginative qualities. It might be a good time to explore topics that nourish your sense of wonder. Mysticism and spirituality could offer perspective that will help you contextualize things into a broader framework.
On the 14th, Mercury’s station to retrograde motion, in Aquarius, augurs a period of realignment that may already have started especially in regard to your dreams and your aspirations. The next three weeks, and on into mid to late February, could help you delineate a better trajectory for yourself and clear out residual fears or assumptions surrounding what it means to be successful. Your goals and ambitions could also come to be more closely related to where you want to be in the world.
The CancerFull Moon takes place on January 17th bringing with it a sense of fulfillment to the sector of your chart relating to your domestic life, your family and your roots. Something is coming to completion and you may be able to take stock or integrate recent epiphanies and experiences regarding where you want to wind up. This Full Moon closely opposes Pluto in Capricorn as the Sun conjuncts it, which accentuates a powerful urge to transform and regenerate the fundamental structures of your life to find a greater sense of nourishment and safety.
On the 18th, the North and South Nodes of the Moon enter the sign of Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, signaling the beginning of a series, by spring, of one and a half years’ worth of eclipses in these signs. This may progressively bring new opportunities for financial independence. You may find yourself increasingly aware of the need to take your resources into your own hands while finding greater autonomy to do as you please.
The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th. This is the Fixed-Air sign which signals the middle of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. Fixed signs are known for their stabilizing and steadying influence and the next month could bring a greater awareness of the efforts you need to take to follow your dreams. Mercury currently moving retrograde in Aquarius conjuncts the Sun on the 23rd and this could bring insights as to what step you need to take to make a dream come true.
The last week of January has Mars entering Capricorn until the first week of March and Mercury Retrograde re-entering Capricorn which emphasizes your career and vocational sector for the next month. There should be momentum for things to start moving, especially when it comes to your bigger goals for the year ahead.
Venus stations direct in Capricorn on the 29th, representing a significant day when Venus is standing dead still in the sky, and in aspect to freedom-loving Uranus. The Sun also lies in square to this interesting and stimulating planetary energy. These end-of-month days may provide startling insights or unexpected events around relationship in your life and continues the emphasis on your desires and dreams over the following weeks.
This is a pivotal month for you, Taurus, the middle one of three that will in many ways rock your world. It might in fact be best to wait until the end of February before reaching any definite conclusion about what is really going on for you. Last month you found yourself in the whirlpool, with changing worldview, beliefs, values, and as well, perhaps, educational or travel plans turning topsy-turvy. This is all to uncover the deeper meaning. Venus, your ruler, retrograde the last ten days of the previous month and all through January, is joined in her backward motion on the 14th by Mercury, and you will find that your thoughts return again and again to the ways in which your work in the world measures up – or does not – to the internal standard that you have set for yourself, and that you are slowly discovering. Important considerations such as these continue to drive you toward a mission statement that includes service to particular partners and to society in general, in quite a poignant way. This is from the inside, with delayed resolution still to arrive in the coming weeks.
The start of 2022 begins on a hopeful note for you with the CapricornNew Moon taking place on the 2nd. This New Moon offers initiating momentum and much-needed perspective for the year ahead. Your gaze could be set on bold and ambitious dreams and when it comes to setting your intentions for the year ahead, the sky's the limit. Jupiter entered Pisces at the end of December and is now transiting in the sector of your chart that relates to your aspirations. This applies over the next four and a half months. Rebel and innovative planet Uranus is also since the last few years transiting in your sign and is now trined by the New Moon, which is also taking place in the sector of your chart that relates to knowledge, travel, and higher mind activities such as education. This implies that trusting your intuition and creative spark could open new doors for you in January. You may be endowed this month with the perfect blend of genius and skills which allows you to reimagine your world and create new shapes within it. Your sense of faith may have gotten tested recently. Venus currently retrograde in Capricorn could have brought doubts around your ability to pursue a particular path. However, if so, the doubts you could be experiencing will only serve in the long run to consolidate your resolve. It may in fact be time to let go of obsolete beliefs and lighten up your load. Flexibility is an incredible asset for you right now that allows you to make significant progress in your chosen direction.
Messenger planet Mercury also enters Aquarius on the 2nd, which could bring an increased focus on your career. Your mind might be set on a goal or you may be busy with the logistical details of a big project. Mercury in Aquarius will station retrograde mid-month, foretelling that a longer period of refinement may be needed before you are able to launch yourself forward with that goal.
The first ten days of January offer fertile terrain for projects that require your imagination. Venus retrograde sextile Neptune, from the 4th to the 6th, and conjunct the Sun in Capricorn on the 8th, are excellent transits for philosophical and mystical explorations. Venus retrograde conjunct the Sun signals the halfway point of her retrograde cycle which might bring new insights and clarifications. Keeping an open mind ensures that you do not close yourself off from the epiphanies that are available to you now. You can work to have faith and trust that your efforts are leading you in the right direction.
On the 14th, Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius and will be moving backward through the zodiac for the next three weeks; plus taking a couple of weeks to escape its retrograde shadow. Even though you likely feel impatient to get going, this is your cue to polish and refine your message over time, before launching yourself forward or making a significant career move.
The CancerFull Moon on January 17th culminates in the part of your chart that relates to your ideas and how you share them with the world. There may be a ton of momentum surrounding this Full Moon or a project could be culminating. You may feel divided between taking a patient and practical approach versus acting on a hunch. You could be emotionally attached to a certain outcome and you may also be more inclined to take a subjective stance on things that are close to your heart so keep that in mind if you have to make an important decision at this time.
On the 18th, the North and South Nodes of the Moon enter your sign of Taurus, and your opposite sign of Scorpio, respectively. This is while Uranus stations direct in your sign, representing a pivotal time of the month with some dynamic tension that can help you move ahead. The North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio for the next one and a half years could bring progressive change related to your personal direction and you may have more opportunities to actualize your personal goals in the following months.
The Sun enters the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius on January 19th where it highlights your career and your place in the world. Also, Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius conjunct the Sun on the 23rd could bring new insights or a helpful perspective. Keeping an open mind could ensure that you don’t miss the creative opportunities that may be presenting themselves at this time.
During the last week of January, Mars and Mercury enter Capricorn from different sides ( Mercury is retrograde) bringing considerable energy to your educational sector. Venus stations direct in Capricorn on the 29th and will slowly start regaining speed in the coming weeks so be prepared for things to start eventually moving faster. Original ideas that have been dancing in the back of your mind in the first half of January may be ready to get executed by the middle of next month.
This is another fascinating month for you, Gemini, that departs from the normal and consensus modes of thinking and of intimate connection to others. The mid-month retrograde of your ruler, Mercury, has you rethinking all your priorities, especially regarding the primacy of deep inner work in solving the puzzle of your existence. Or at least you might get closer to that, over another climactic two-month cycle beginning with this current one. Deep inner exploration merges with other significant areas of life, namely your work in the world, your philosophical connection to it, and to the very concept of partnership with important others. The Full Moon of January 17th brings transformational energies fully into play in a way that lasts you well into February. This second half of January features a process of interior intuitional realization that you benefit from paying the closest attention to. It is easy to get swayed by the attitude of the society that surrounds you, and yet it is extremely vital to your future welfare that you choose not to be in this way distracted.
The astrological month of January begins with a New Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd, which signals the beginning of a new cycle for your intimate and business partnerships. The New Moon is supported by a trine from Uranus in Taurus which may highlight the benefits that come from stepping away from your work routine to nurture your inner reality and address built up tension. You could be more preoccupied with your private life and it’s a good time to focus on the support and safety offered by others. You may realize this month that in order to accomplish your ambitious visions in the coming year, you will need the backup of your important partnerships to succeed.
An educational path may also be highlighted at the beginning of the month as planet Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius. Teaching, education or travel could be on your mind but Mercury stationing retrograde mid-January means that you may have to re-evaluate the costs or energy investment of a particular trajectory.
Jupiter is now transiting in Pisces for the next four and a half months which may bring momentum and new opportunities for growth in your career sector. However, you may have to be more deliberate about your time and energy investments to ensure you do not burn out. The beginning of the year is the perfect time to be clear about what you are willing to do versus where you may need to establish better boundaries. Venus is still retrograde until the end of the month and meets the Sun in Capricorn on the 8th which may bring some clarity surrounding a business deal, an alliance, a contract or an intimate partnership.
You could feel some anxieties creeping up around the 10th and 11th as Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces; you may have to deal with some unforeseen factors.
On the 14th, Mercury stationing retrograde in Aquarius augurs a period of reassessment, especially for things related to your philosophical outlook and the broader framework that helps you structure your ideas and beliefs about the world. More extensively, you may need to re-evaluate an educational or spiritual path or adjust your stance to include new information coming in at this time.
The CancerFull Moon takes place on the 17th, and this is in many ways an important marker in the month for you, highlighting your sense of safety or your material reality. The Full Moon opposes Pluto in Capricorn which could bring out intense emotions or obsessive behavior in you or in others around you. Feelings of powerlessness may come up and it may be important to acknowledge the areas of your life where you may feel less in control. You may realize that you need more autonomy to do as you please or on the other hand, you may feel like you need more support from a partnership in order to feel grounded.
The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th which will help bring direction and focus in the coming weeks. Then, Mercury Retrograde conjunct the Sun in Aquarius on the 23rd could bring a clarifying light on educational matters. There may be residual uncertainty as to where things are heading but you could start to see the shape of things to come.
Joint ventures, business or intimate partnerships and shared resources continue to be an important theme during the latter part of the month. Mars enters Capricorn on the 24th where it will spend the next six weeks highlighting contractual agreements and your urges for personal security. Mercury Retrograde re-enters Capricorn on the 25th which continues to bring an important emphasis on your partnerships. You may now be equipped with new information that could help you make a decision.
Secrets may be revealed or something important could come to light as Mercury conjuncts Pluto on the 29th, while Venus stations to direct motion in aspect to the Trickster energy of Uranus in Taurus. There may be an obsessive undertow coloring the end of the month so be mindful of overthinking a situation. Things may be imaginary or not be as bad as they seem so that keeping a sense of perspective could help you sort out the information coming to you at this time.
This is an amazing month for you, Cancer, when much will be entangled, and much reveled, although when also you might need to wait until nearly the end of February for your most usable realizations. You have long been in a process of partnership revolution and reconsideration, where the prospect of discovering greater richness in what you are about there has been relatively constant. Now, this month, with the relationship planet, Venus, still in retrograde in your partnership sector from the previous month to the end of January, and in powerful connection to transformational Pluto as it began, you are really going for it in terms of what you can gather, and ultimately react to. This is highlighted by the mid-month Full Moon in your sign. Your work in the world also increasingly partakes of elements corresponding to your bottom-line principles and values, and only to these. Alterations all around need not be sad – or difficult – when you remember that existence itself consists of an interminable process of change. Mercury also retrogrades on the 14th, instigating an ongoing complementary process of deep reflection on your life’s meaning.
As the month gets started, the CapricornNew Moon in your opposite sign January 2nd indicates the beginning of a new cycle for you that affects most directly your relationship sector. There is already a significant emphasis there, thanks to Venus moving retrograde in Capricorn since the last ten days of December. You might be in the process of reevaluating your alliances, and as well the compromises you make for others. Important relationships could be undergoing some needed changes or you could find yourself negotiating the agreements you have with others. You might be more willing to compromise for friends and lovers this month or simply more preoccupied than usual with the well-being of the people you love. Uranus in Taurus forms a supportive trine with the New Moon which may bring exciting opportunities in the following weeks via an acquaintance or a community involvement. Don’t shy away from reaching out to your broader social network. You may be pleasantly surprised by the new connections you can make now. Jupiter has just re-entered the sign of Pisces (for the next four and a half months) and brings his expansive influence to the part of your chart that relates to education and travel. Your attention might be turning towards new learning experiences and it may be a good time to try something new there or get yourself away from the beaten path.
Mercury also enters Aquarius on the 2nd which continues to bring an emphasis on your partnerships and the contract and commitments you have with others.
The second weekend of the month could be clarifying for your relationship as Venus retrograde meets the Sun in Capricorn for her inferior conjunction. Even if you still feel unsure of what someone has to offer at this time, you may experience a renewed sense of faith that things are as they should be.
On the 10th and the 11th, Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune, with the Sun sextile Neptune, starting off the second week of the month, may imply fogginess, and could help you regain a sense of spiritual perspective or open your mind up to new or unfamiliar experiences.
On the 14th, Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius and will be moving backward through the zodiac for the next three weeks, finally escaping its retrograde shadow on the 24th of February. You may be oscillating between commitment and freedom so that it helps if you can give yourself some time to think things through before making any drastic decisions or sending ultimatums.
There may well be a build-up of intensity in the days leading to the Full Moon in your sign on January 17th. You could feel more self-aware and this could emphasize your needs and desires in a more dramatic way. The Full Moon is opposed by Pluto in Capricorn which may well bring up fears or obsessions in you or in people who are close to you. It could be harder to keep a sense of perspective at this time and this Full Moon could serve as a catharsis for elements that need to be purged. Your relationship with others might be characterized by this intensity so keep that in mind. There may be opportunities to come to terms with things that are no longer working for you and embrace the transformations that are occurring in you or in your partnerships.
On the 18th, the North and South Nodes of the Moon enter the sign of Taurus and Scorpio respectively signaling the beginning in this spring of one and a half year eclipse cycle in these signs which therefore may progressively bring new opportunities to integrate your skills into a broader framework.
The Sun enters the Fixed-Air sign of Aquarius on the 19th which signals the middle of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. Mercury currently moving retrograde in Aquarius conjunct the Sun a few days later on the 23rd which may bring some insights related to an intimate or business partnership.
A process of negotiation could be underway during the last week of January as Mars enters Capricorn on the 24th and the next day Mercury retrogrades back into this sign of the Sea Goat.
On the 29th, Venus stations direct in Capricorn which could bring important progress. It could still take another month before you are completely clear of a reoccurring issue. The Sun in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus also, thus ending the month of January on an unpredictable note. You may have to contend with unforeseen factors so its best to be prepared for the unexpected and stay flexible.
This is another somewhat difficult and yet also joyous month for you, Leo. As has been the case for much of last year, career choices continue to be all over the place, with a serious mode of commitment there both coming and going, depending on the occasion. Transformation is to be found for you in this important area of outer world commitment, and also in terms of relationship, which requires review and potential revision as you make your way forward. You are very other-oriented at this time, and yet your own spiritual development is on the line. This is as a result of how you handle things during a climactic monthly cycle that leads into the next month as well. Mercury retrogrades in your partnership sector mid-month, beginning on the 14th, and you will want to suspend judgment in every possible way until at least the middle of February. Your awareness is there for your mission of service to the others, and to the collective. The trick, if you are to successfully foster your own growth and evolution, might be that you check within yourself intuitionally to the greatest possible extent.
The astrological month of January begins with a New Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd, in your sector of health and day-to-day routines, which is the perfect opportunity to set your intentions for the year ahead. There is a lot of action in Capricorn this month which means it's a great time to come up with the resolutions that can help you prosper in 2022. Venus is still moving retrograde in Capricorn which could be highlighting your desire to find work that is more meaningful. Uranus in Taurus forms a supportive trine with the New Moon which may bring career opportunities or exciting ideas surrounding your vocation. You may be looking for work that is different from what you are used to and you may be able to make headway especially if you are willing to try new things. Mars is still in Sagittarius for most of January which helps fuel your creativity and your ability to have fun no matter what the circumstances. With some hard work, you may be able to take the first step towards the actualization of a cherished vision. Your collaborations and partnerships may be the anchor that you need to get things done so don’t be afraid to ask for help this month. Remember that there are a lot of people who are willing to help you with your ideas so don’t close yourself off from your support network.
Mercury, which rules over communication, enters the sign of Aquarius at the beginning of January highlighting your partnership sector. You may be in the process of negotiating the terms of an agreement with someone but with Mercury slowing down and preparing to station retrograde mid-month, these negotiations could take longer than expected so be sure to keep that in mind.
You may be wondering about financial backing or other resources that could be provided if you teamed up with someone. Jupiter is moving through the sign of Pisces for the next four and half months which emphasizes the benefits that may come your way from your intimate or business partnerships. From the 4th to the 6th, Venus sextile Neptune could mirror some of these benefits while Venus conjunct the Sun on the 8th could help clarify ongoing logistical or scheduling issues.
On the 14th, Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius which could throw a kink into ongoing dialogues you may be having with someone.

This is a extremely inner-oriented time of the year for you Libra, and this particular winter season all the more so. This is due to your ruler, Venus, in retrograde motion all month, in association with transformative Pluto, and occupying your fourth solar sector of home, family and your psychological roots. Ever since the middle of last month, in imitation of the greater society’s covid reset of 2020-2021, you are taking a deep dive internally, to reflect and to reassess, and this has several layers. At the previous month’s Christmas Day celebration of December 25th, and stemming from about a week before, the conjunction with Pluto matured and created a seeding period for the current month. Then, we have the epiphanies of the 14th and 15th when Venus separates from the Sun, rising anew as the Morning Star, and when Mercury stations to retrograde motion in your self-expression sector.

Your inner world and associated inner wounding are vary alive for you throughout this timing, Additionally, by mid-month, Mercury reverses into backward motion as well from the geocentric standpoint.

Venus conjunct the Sun is a significant moment in Venus’s retrograde cycle and signals the midway point in her 40 day retrograde: a time when important information may come to light regarding attractions, desires, relationships and the pursuit of pleasure. Mars square Neptune on the 10th and 11th continues to exaggerate your longings for pleasure and romantic experiences. This is an illusory influence.

Mercury’s backward journey begins January 14th and takes 30 days or more to fully recover. The Capricorn placements as the month begins, retrograde Venus with transformational Pluto and as well the potent New Moon, are also significant. This New Moon from the first weekend of the month is in your resources sector and includes your finances – which will have their ups and downs – and also the potential realization to come, that money is a means rather than an end, a practical necessity rather than a primary goal. Other resources like friends and family are more significant. The introspective concentration that you have during the second half of January might also involve the recognition of inner wounding, the residue of undigested childhood trauma, still influencing your behavior many years later. You do well at this time to make friends with these failings. They can find their healing resolution only by you going down there to greet them in the same deep level of your psyche as where they originally began.

Autonomy comes at a cost; the effort, time and energy investment you have put in making things happen could start to bear fruit this month. Knowing that people have your back is a big motivator but learning to keep moving ahead regardless has brought you closer to a true sense of your own autonomy. The New Moon also receives a supportive trine from Uranus in Taurus asking you to keep yourself moving forward with your changes as you take care of yourself. Flexibility and flow is the secret of health and the more adaptable you are this month, the easier it will be.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 14th, signaling a three week period of review and revision followed by two weeks of recovery, Mercury’s retrograde shadow period.

There is also the powerful retrograde of Mercury, beginning on the 14th, in your sector of resources and finances, and in aspect to the Trickster planetary energy of Uranus in your self-expression sector. Your energy is all over the place and yet there are creative realizations to compensate for that, provided you can stay open to them. The CancerFull Moon of the 17th brings partners into the picture, providing important clues to your own ongoing evolution, while you are also subject to the push-pull of progressive versus conservative approaches and must somehow choose between. In the year ahead, you will need to stay constantly alert to nuance. All of this is designed to further your own growth in consciousness, and if you can keep that as your focus, the outcome will be true success.

On the 14th, Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius and will be re-entering Capricorn on the 25th and finally stationing direct in your sign at the beginning of February.

The many days of the long Venus-Pluto from the last twenty days of the previous month as prelude, with the New Year’s Day weekend New Moon in the same sign of Capricorn you are as January begins tuning in to where you have arrived, through significant inner understanding, and the distance you have yet to cover. This is in your quest to achieve the most authentic version of yourself that you can muster. Your finances are fortunate right now and provide a fertile background for the metamorphosis of values that is part of your current mission statement. The mid-month retrograde of Mercury in your sign indicates the start of a thirty-day period of questioning and revising your opinions on many things including your self-concept. This includes home and family issues that continue to arise, as well as articulating concepts you have been forming of your own internal wounding. Inner work has taken you this far, and will be the recipe for your further growth and evolution.
There was, for you, an introspective and self-reflective mood in December that may well carry over to January. At the beginning of the astrological month, the CapricornNew Moon takes place on January 2nd in the sector of your chart that relates to your unconscious needs and desires. Some hidden aspects of yourself could become more obvious and you may be inclined to spend more time delineating your internal world. You may have to confront fears that have a hold on you from the shadows, and which in turn could bring to you greater self-awareness. Understanding where you may feel burdened by taking on responsibilities that do not belong to you could help you let go of the perhaps unrealistic expectations you put on yourself. What could appease some of the tension you may feel, is perhaps spending time on delineating the work or commitments you are willing to take on versus where you might be sacrificing too much.
Mercury enters your sign at the beginning of January, and so learning to better express your needs could therefore prove to be an important feature this month; this is especially so because Mercury slows down in Aquarius as it begins to turns retrograde by mid-month. Pent-up emotions that have been building up in a particular situation might need to be acknowledged before you can really feel comfortable.
Your ruling planet, Uranus, is transiting in the part of your chart that relates to your home and your foundation and forms a supportive trine with the New Moon in Capricorn. Issues of home, dwelling, and family life are thus quite central to this entire month for you.

What you seek is, and always will be, within.
Jupiter now transiting in Pisces until the second week of May should bring an increased faith in your ability to provide for yourself.
Venus is still moving retrograde in Capricorn and comes into a conjunction with the Sun on the 8th which has a clarifying influence. The second week of January may bring up a situation related to your resources. The Sun sextile Neptune in Pisces could bring a tendency to idealize things. However, your sense of faith could oscillate as Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune on the 11th. It may be hard to know exactly where things are heading but don’t get discouraged. Trusting the process at this time could ensure that you keep your focus on the best possible outcome.
On January 14th, Mercury stations retrograde in your sign and will be moving backward for the next three weeks; recovering for the two after that. You may have the opportunity during this time to refine and perhaps rethink the ways you project yourself into the world.
