The Sun brightens your 3rd house of mobility this month bringing a whirlwind of activity. Keeping balance may be a bit tougher this month as your list of activities, events, and other projects builds.
The 3rd house rules travel so you may find yourself on the road more than usual or catching a plane, boat, train, or bus to adventures, obligations, or both. You also may find yourself not traveling but planning a future trip.
The Sun in this placement brings focus to your communication sector so you may find you are chatting it up more than usual and that opportunities for social (online and in-person) abound. This transit definitely brings an increase in likelihood of a very fun and busy social calendar, which even if it isn’t ‘in person’ events, could take place through online gatherings or other virtual connections. Reconnecting with old friends, relatives, and acquaintances, or making new friends, are all more likely at this time.
Also, opportunities to improve your personal communication style to be more effective and productive could come up in a big way. Any books, classes, or other resources on improving communication to create win-wins is very favorable now.
The area lit up for you know also rules information: the taking in of it and the sharing of it. Anything notable in these areas are fair game to be brought into the forefront. Education and research projects are well-supported at this time.
Writing, editing, publishing, or other projects involving sharing information may come into focus now. It is amazing time for editing, reworking, finishing projects already in process.
If you are due to upgrade your communication devices and modes of transportation (aka thinking of buying a new vehicle, phone, computer, etc.), the Venus retrograde transit can bring in some amazing deals! A couple of cautions with large purchases are: make sure you don’t stretch further than your budget allows and look at the fine print of agreements and do extra research to prevent buying a ‘money pit’. I have links to my Venus retrograde resources later in this blog. I highly recommend you especially watch my video on the topic to better understand the do’s and donts.
Things involving siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles (basically relatives that aren’t your parents or kids) may come into focus now from this transit. Don’t be surprised to have some notable contact from one of these relatives and if you have the urge to check in with one or more of them, following that urge may prove quite timely.
The Sun’s transit here can show us things that have to be adjusted in a certain sector of life but alternatively can show us things that are great in that area and can bring wonderful opportunities.
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.
