Happy Birthday, Capricorn friends!! This month brings a massive amount of energy for you to use however you want! With the Sun lighting up your 1st house, and in your own sign, the awesome possibilities burn bright. This is a time for rebirth and you can maximize your new chapters by taking the time to go within and figure out what you really want. Birthday wishes are real and you get 10 of them! Write them down, say them out loud, and most importantly, FEEL them as if they have already come true. You can phrase them something like this: I am so grateful that my desire for …… has been fulfilled in a magical way! This method employs the energy of desire that is true to the transit and focuses on the fulfillment, not the lack of, which is the absolute key to manifestation. You can see more about this in my video, Making Wishes Come True Using Astrological Power Periods.
The 1st house that is highlighted for you now is all about what you put out into the world/how the world sees you. Are you doing things that match how you want to be received? If not, how can you change aspects of your life where there is a disconnect to create coherence between what you want to be seen as and how you are showing up.
Often the Sun’s movement through this house brings attention to you. It could throw you into the limelight bringing in recognition and/or an increase in awareness of you and your work or other projects.
This house also rules your physical body so getting into or back into a daily physical routine is imperative. Balancing mental activity with physical movement is an important way to open up to inspiration and keep yourself healthy and mentally and emotionally clear.
At the same time as daily movement (walking, yoga, tai chi, etc.) is helpful for focus and reaching goals. Complementary stillness of mind and body through meditation is helps to use your actions most efficiently.
Even something simple like 20 minutes of physical exercise and 5-10 minutes of daily meditation can do a world of wondrous good 🙂
If you have physical ailments, the Sun’s placement in the 1st house could bring new insights. Feelings not felt, expressed with spiritual accountability, and cleared, turn into physical pain in your body. Finding the balance between getting things out that you are feeling, without talking too much about the same thing over and over or participating in avoidance behaviors is your mission 🙂 Symptoms from the past may resurface for further attention.
Having a daily way to cleanse your emotional field from things you tend to try to ‘work away’ is critical for your happiness and health. I love Marriage of Spirit by Leslie Temple Thurston exercises in Section 2 of the book for this (see below).
I also really love barefoot walking (which is also amazing for detoxifying) or holding your third eye and hands up on a tree (in colder weather that isn’t conducive to being barefoot) to help clear your field and balance your energy field. You will be surprised at the wonders this simple practice could bring when done consistently. The Earth frequency is very balancing to the human energy field and has been mitigated in more modern times because of the plastic and rubber shoe bottoms which block the energy from permeating the energy field in deeper ways.
Getting back to focusing on your breath will be another big piece for your best, happiest, and healthiest life 🙂
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.
