This month is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. Friends, co-workers, clients, business partners, romantic partners or interests will take center stage. Topics like finding clarity about where you stand with people important to you, your relationship to them, and how it is best to move forward with re-connecting, collaborating, committing, or splitting will all take major focus at this time. Unresolved issues in relationships may come back into the forefront as may people from the past. Fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged.
The relationship with self is the primary relationship from which everything else extends and this time can offer great opportunities to evaluate inner issues honestly and motivate to take action on shifting individual patterns that can have profound effects on relationship patterns with others.
This sector that focuses on relationships, also includes the finding of perfect helpers. Anything from finding the perfect medical practitioner, therapist, electrician, accountant, administrator, has more promise now. Any type of professional that could help you in any area of your life, has an increased potential to be drawn to you right now! Wonderful synergistic arrangements hold great promise now.
This sector of the chart also has to do with aesthetics so you may have the urge to decorate, spruce up, or move things around, or make personal beauty changes. This could be a great time to clean up, clear out, and beautify your living and/or work space.
If you are on a budget, into environmentally-friendly focus, or just want to incorporate bonding with your friends, or meeting new friends into your redecorating process, something fun is to have a ‘home item swap party’ with friends. Each person bringing a potluck food/drink item to share and some items from their home that they are done with. Everyone will leave from this gathering with new items without spending any money 🙂
It is also a great time for entertaining, and a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings. If the circumstances prevent in-person connecting, virtual friend or group connections could be how the energy manifests.
January 2022 delivers us out of the heat of eclipse season but some news or after-effects could still be rolling in this month from the November/December 2021 Eclipses.
Eclipse season continues as we have the second eclipse of the season. The new cycle of Taurus/Scorpio eclipses will start to show their trends and this runs from now through the end of 2023. The ending of the Sagittarius/Gemini eclipse cycle that started around March 2020 and runs through early January 2021 will bring a great wrap-up of the energies that started at that time. Eclipses tend to bring non-negotiable changes and shifts to trajectories as monumental goodbyes, and brilliant hello’s enter our experience.
We have more sweet aspects compared to salty ones and this more amicable communication between the stars will add a layer of ease.
Mercury and Venus are in retrograde in January which makes it a month more about dealing with things from the past than planning too much for things in the future. Blessings or issues alike are more likely to resurface from the past.
Plans that were made for this month are likely to change and leaving yourself as unscheduled as possible will leave room for last-minute magic in the form of invites or opportunities that you can more easily show up for if you leave the space for them.
There are some additional important things to know about Mercury retrograde that could help you to flow with the energies and make magic instead of mischief. You can see more details in my video on the topic.
Venus has a lot of areas of rulership: love, relationships, money, finances, design, self-esteem, and more. While many news things will likely come in this month from the other aspects and transits occurring, this retrograde tends to bring our focus back to the past or in a state of enjoyment of or working with things we have already created. If you have to make any decisions or take any big steps in the areas of love, money, design (including physical procedures), you really need to be informed on the Do’s and Donts of this transit! You can get up to speed on this in my special video on the topic and my Venus retrograde through the signs and houses series.
Strong Sagittarius influences bring the topics of writing, publishing, travel, immigration, international relations, adventures, teaching, and learning into the forefront.
Venus in Capricorn (for a very extended time into March 2022 due to the retrograde) brings focus on business, taxes, strategy, financial planning and other topics of finance, employment, and implementing systems for now and the future. Taking care anything practical is a great way to use this energy.
Aquarius influences, heating up especially in the latter part of January, bring a strong social component, and the draw to connect with like-minded people or in some way workin on a common goal with a group.
Saturn Square Uranus is a MAJOR aspect! It is rare for two outer planets to be in connection and when it happens, it usually spans a long time, this time around we are feeling this one from 2021 – 2022. Freedom vs enslavement and tradition vs. innovation are two polarities brought up by the transit. See an in-depth discussion about this transit on my YouTube video on the topic. The aspect occurs at the end of December 2021 and its effects will likely radiate into January.
