The Sun whirls through your 4th house this month bringing focus on home, real estate, and home-based ventures.
The desire to spruce up or organize home may be strong at this time. This can be an amazing time for researching big design, building, decorating projects, and doing basic maintenance, repair and easy to change sprucing. Small and affordable projects may be best now since the ruler of design and money, Venus, is retrograde. Later in this blog, I have a link to my Venus retrograde resources to help you understand the energies better so you can align your actions with the natural rhythms.
This is also a fantastic month for cozying up at home. A fun project at this time is to do some Feng Shui treatments to your home. Deep cleaning, clearing clutter, and reorganizing is also in great alignment now.
Since the Sun lighting up your 4th house also means your family sector is lit up, if you are traveling this month, it is likely be to visit family or to a place that was or feels like ‘home’ or you may have family come visit you.
Family fun could enter center stage. Equally as likely could be family drama. Tread lightly on trigger topics with family and feel into doing work to dissolve your own triggers.
Topics of home, homes and housing will likely be very hot at this time. Life-changing events may be in store regarding these topics.
If you have real estate investments or are wanting to sell or buy a home, this month will likely bring much activity in this sector. Big news in these departments could come in now.
The 4th house is also the sector of childhood psychology, so things that happened as a child that are affecting your current situation (like patterns in relationship or elsewhere, that recreate circumstances that made you feel the same way you did when you were a child). The Sun in this position can light up things that are right and can also make more clear things that need improvement. If important actions have to be made working on the inner planes, there is much support at this time. If you feel ready to stop the patterns that have been holding you back, you can find great resources and make great headway now. Inner work is awesome at any time this month.
Diving deep into research about your ancestry, genetic testing, and anything else related to the past and your family carries great support now.
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.
