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.

Your communication devices, transportation equipment (cars, bikes, etc.), and other electronics are more likely to be on the fritz at this time. If you really have to buy a new one, just research the product carefully and read the fine print. Getting insurance or extra warranties may be extra supportive at this time (also read these agreements carefully).

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 2023 brings a BIG BURST OPEN into a NEW YEAR but it may take a few weeks into the new year to really start to feel things revving up and moving forward. Mars and Mercury go direct this month and as they do, more clarity, ambition, zest, and certainty about present and future plans can start to arise. By the end of January, we are making our way into the most open period of starry connections in the whole of 2023. February through early April is a magical time when any progress that seemed slow for many months, can race forward at top speed and positive changes can occur surprisingly quickly.

We have a break from the heat of the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse seasons and tons of sweet aspects to celebrate in January.

Capricorn energies dominating in the first half or so of the month can bring great focus and powers of perseverance. If you have to do something tedious any time soon (like taxes!), now could be a great time to harness the diligence you need to get numbers in order. If you are wanting to take on something else that requires organization or persistence, these Cap energies can help. Getting down to business and taking care of practical matters is another great way to use these energies. You also may be putting the final touches on a MAJOR launch or some other major chapter is about to begin and you can use this energy to help you take care of the strategic parts of the project, making sure all is ready for the push forward that is about to occur.

Strong Aquarius energies bring in important connections with others and community efforts. Internet-based activities may start taking center stage and networking can yield especially amazing results.

Mars in Gemini brings fun relief in your busy schedule and just enough distraction for you to return refreshed to your list of things to do. If you are a writer or are otherwise creating spoken, written, or other crafts, you will be highly creative and soar through your projects. Working in short spurts might help you to be the most productive. Now that Mars is going direct, topics you have been vacillating about may start to become more clear as to which option to choose.
