Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 24, 2022 – January 30, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 24, 2022 through January 30, 2022 features two major aspects (Mercury conjunct Pluto, Sun square Uranus), two sign changes (Mars in Capricorn, Mercury Rx in Capricorn) and Venus turns direct.

It’s going to be a busy week. So, without further ado…

Cosmic Overview

This week we have two sign changes – Mars moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, and Mercury has unfinished business as he retrogrades back into the sign of the sea goat. So, there is a lot of Capricorn energy we will still be working through, despite the Sun having moved into Aquarius.

Capricorn is an earth sign. It likes things to be solid, secure, and stable, and is concerned with tangible reality. So, any planet that moves through the sign of the goat will express itself in Capricornian ways.

Mars is an action planet. He goes out into the world and gets you what you want, and is even willing to fight for it. However, rather than approaching things impulsively, Mars is strategic and has tenacity in earthy Capricorn. In Capricorn, Mars is concerned with position and status and is willing to work nonstop to achieve what he desires. While Mas is in the sign of the sea-goat, you can take advantage of Capricornian discipline and focus on projects that matter, helping push you to the next level. This is where you need to strategize your long game and look towards your big picture objectives.

Now, on to Mercury.

Mercury reversed course on January 14, 2022 in the sign of Aquarius. However, this week he will retrograde back into Capricorn. Whereas Aquarius is concerned with making your life better, Mercury moving back into Capricorn ensures you have all the facts straight. Mercury’s reflective mode in Capricorn will help Mars create better strategies that will help you once Mercury turns direct. Use this period to look at your life, stick to the facts, and then develop a plan of action (Mercury being copresent with Mars) to get the results you ultimately desire.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 24, 2022

We start the week off with Mars moving into Capricorn.  If you have projects to complete that need focus and tenacity, the warrior god will help you get it accomplished. Otherwise, this is an excellent cycle (Mars remains in Capricorn until March 6th) to focus on long-term objects and plans.  Focus on the big picture!

Tuesday, January 25, 2022

Besides Mercury retrograding back into Capricorn, the Moon moves through turbulent Scorpio and opposes Uranus. You may feel anxious throughout the day, especially if you feel that outside forces are obstructing your progress. Try to remain as proactive as possible, and use your wise mind rather than react emotionally.

Wednesday, January 26, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Scorpio and makes beneficial aspects to Neptune, Pluto, and Mercury Rx. Your creative juices will flow steadily, so it’s the perfect day to work on projects that inspire and feed your soul. Later in the day, you will have the opportunity to clear up any communication snafus that occurred earlier in the week.

Thursday, January 27, 2022

Today, the Moon enters fiery Sagittarius. It’s an excellent day to do things that you enjoy and bring out your adventurous spirit. The Moon aspects beneficial Jupiter, which should give you a dose of optimism, and your mood should be positive. However, try not to be excessive, because Jupiter can get out of control if left unchecked.

Friday, January 28, 2022

Mercury conjoins Pluto in Capricorn during the early morning hours. Since Mercury is retched out, this is an auspicious day to look within for answers, rather than finding solutions to your problems in the world. You may want to take some time to do journaling work or find creative ways to express yourself. Avoid being harsh with yourself over the past mistakes or problems, because it’s not helpful and it’s disempowering.

Saturday, January 29, 2022

Great news! After 40 long days and nights, Venus turns direct in Capricorn. If you’ve experienced relationship issues over the past month and a half, matters will begin to improve.  However, take some time to review your recent relationship experiences and use them as a learning experience. Also, if you’ve held off on making investments or major purchases, continue to refrain until after Mercury turns direct next week.

Sunday, January 30, 2022

We close the week with the Sun forming a tense square to Uranus in Taurus. Sun square Uranus is extremely disruptive, and sudden changes may leave you feeling frustrated or anxious. Be careful when interacting with others, because hard Sun-Uranus aspects can be discordant and provoke arguments. Expect the unexpected!

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 17, 2022 through January 23, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 17, 2022 through January 23, 2022 features a Full Moon in Cancer, Uranus stationing direct in Taurus, a Sun-Mercury conjunction, and the end of Capricorn as we usher in Aquarius season.

There is not much planetary action this week, so let’s dive in.

Cosmic Overview

The Full Moon occurs in Cancer this week at 6:48 PM EST/3:48 PM PST. This Full Moon is potent because it opposes Pluto in Capricorn. The Full Moon opposing Pluto can bring up toxic familial drama or emotional situations where you have lost your power to deal with them internally or externally. Full Moons are emotionally intense, but this one is off the chain. So, get prepared!

Astro Magic Pro Tip:

Cancer Full Moons are an auspicious time to work through family of origin issues or to let go of emotional pain and hurts. It’s also an excellent time for healing work and ridding yourself of health issues. So, if you need to let go of something emotional, this is the Full Moon to get it done, once and for all.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 17, 2022

The Moon moves through emotional Cancer and opposes Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon is our need for security, and opposed to Pluto, we feel anything but secure. Since an opposition is an aspect that propels us to deal with things, this could lead to tense encounters and power plays. Try to work towards compromises, rather than worsen matters.

Tuesday, January 18, 2022

The Moon moves through tenaciously stubborn Leo and opposes Mercury Rx and squares Uranus. Communication issues with others may be a factor throughout the day. Try to learn about others’ differences rather than simply react to them. This evening, expect the unexpected as the Moon squares Uranus.

Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Wednesday is the first day of Aquarius season, and it’s time to focus on what we can do to make our lives better. The sign of Aquarius helps us think outside the box and develop strategies that will help improve the quality of our lives. Also, over the next month, you may experience a bit of cabin fever and get the urge to socialize with friends and associates.,

Thursday, January 20, 2022

The Moon moves through dutiful Virgo and aspects Jupiter. Therefore, the tone for the day should be optimistic. Focus on tying up loose ends and clearing tasks off your to-do list. Since Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is retrograde, you may receive information that you can use to your advantage once Mercury turns direct in February.

Friday, January 21, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Virgo and trines Venus retrograde and Uranus in Taurus, forming a lucky grand trine. It’s a great day to look at your problem areas and approach them differently. If you need to make changes in your life, this grand trine can help you get optimal results.

Saturday, January 22, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in productive Virgo, before moving into Libra later this afternoon. It’s the perfect day to get things done, so focus on important matters. Also, if you are in a relationship, a little love and romance may fill up your evening hours.

Sunday, January 23, 2022

The Sun conjoins Mercury Rx in Aquarius. This conjunction is the halfway point of the Mercury retrograde cycle. It’s an auspicious day for self-reflection and inner examination. Insights you receive today may have long-term results.

See you next week!

The Astrology Forecast for the Week of January 10, 2022 – January 16, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 10, 2022 through January 16, 2022 features three major aspects (Sun trine Neptune, Mars square Neptune, and the Sun conjoined to Pluto) and Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius.

So, with all the Neptunian energy and with the inclusion of Mercury retrograde, make sure you verify everything before making decisions, because the truth may be elusive and hard to grasp.

Let’s dive into the forecast!

Cosmic Overview:

This week, Mercury joins the love goddess (Venus) by turning retrograde in Aquarius on Friday morning. Mercury will remain retrograde until February 3, 2022.

At its root, the sign of Aquarius is about how we can improve our lives.  Aquarius is about progress and pushing society forward, rather than staying stuck in the present or being bound to the past. Mercury moving through Aquarius augurs a time when we should focus on areas where we can improve our lives or focus on what needs to be fixed or repaired. Mercury turning retrograde in Aquarius helps us look at the decisions and choices we have made over the past three months that may be preventing our growth. This gives us the chance to course correct if necessary.  The silver lining is that with Mercury being retrograde, we can see the areas that need to be fixed easier.

Mercury retrogrades before it can complete its conjunction to Saturn, but it will remain within orb for the next week. Mercury conjoined to Saturn is frustrating and can lead to negative mindsets. It may be difficult to communicate and express yourself to others. So, try to push away negative thoughts as they surface, and you may need to practice some self-care to manage your emotions.

Otherwise, traditional Mercury retrograde warnings are applicable.  Make sure you back up electronic devices, finalize plans, and sign documents before the retrograde begins. Here is a checklist to help you during the retrograde cycle.

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God

Let’s begin with the recommendations (Notice I didn’t use the lists of should or should not?  Mainly because we should never should on ourselves).

  1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly.  Make sure all the i’s are dotted, and all the t’s are crossed. If you can get away with it, wait until after the retrograde is over to sign on the dotted line. 
  2. Avoid starting anything new.  New projects tend to have communication problems and mishaps when initiated during this process.
  3. Put a watch on your tongue.  (If it is not worth saying, don’t say it)
  4. Check your vehicles for any potential problems.  Before Mercury goes retrograde is the best time for a service call.
  5. Avoid buying real estate or renting apartments.  Usually, this means you are just going to move again during a future Mercury Rx.
  6. Using mail delivery services that offer tracking and insurance.
  7. Check, recheck, and check again any travel plans you have or appointments that are on the books.
  8. If you do travel, don’t take anything of importance or value. Only bring items that you do not care if they are lost or stolen.
  9. Expect people from the past to resurface.  However, once they do crawl out of whatever cavern they came from, proceed with caution.
  10. Back up all electronic devices.
  11. Avoid buying an automobile. 
  12. Mercury Rx is an excellent time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

Now, that is some list.  But, if you want to avoid the most annoying tricks Mercury has up his sleeve, it is wise to pay close attention and organize (Mercury loves that word) accordingly.

Daily Breakdown:

Monday, January 10, 2022

We start the week off with the Sun forming a lovely sextile to Neptune in Pisces. You will find that you are more receptive to the needs of others, and willing to help the unfortunate when possible.  Also, friends may lean on you for emotional support.  However, you may need to wear a garlic necklace to repel emotional vampires.

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

Mars forms a difficult square to Neptune. Your energy levels will be low, which may dampen your spirits and attempt to put out your flame. For many, Mars square Neptune provokes feelings of doubt, and you may feel ineffective dealing with your daily challenges. Avoid any form of underhanded or deceptive behavior.  Regardless of your motives, it will lead to blow back and consequences.

Wednesday, January 12, 2022

After the tricky and self-defeating energies on Tuesday, Wednesday brings us the Moon moving through earthy Taurus – the sign of her exaltation. It’s an excellent day to do self-care and tend to your personal needs. You may want to spend some time relaxing or engaging in pleasurable activities. Treat yourself to something you enjoy.

Thursday, January 13, 2022

The Moon spends its first full day in mercurial Gemini and forms a lovely trine to the trickster god. Since Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow, make sure you back up your computer and electronic devices. Also, sign documents and have any conversation that needs to be handled before it’s less advantageous to do so. This evening is an excellent time to socialize and spend time with family and friends.

Friday, January 14, 2022

As if Mercury Rx (yes, that starts today) is not enough befuddlement for the day, the Moon in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. The Moon square Neptune is extremely confusing, and you need to check and verify everything before believing it as the truth. Be careful of your intuitive hunches, because they may be influenced by fears and paranoias rather than spirit.

Saturday, January 15, 2022

The Moon moves into Cancer during the morning hours and forms a trine to lucky Jupiter. It should be a positive day that is relaxing, and fun filled. So, kick back and do things you enjoy, and take a break from your usual routine. Since the Moon is in Cancer, it’s also an auspicious day to do some redecorating or do something to beautify your home.

Sunday, January 16, 2022

We close the week with the Sun conjoining transformative Pluto in Capricorn. Sometimes, to stand in your power, you have to dig deep. This can bring up uncomfortable feelings or reveal inner truths that may be unsettling and difficult to face. However, slaying your inner demons can help you level up.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast For the week of January 3, 2022 – January 9, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of January 3, 2022 through January 9, 2022 features only two (yes, you read that right) astrological aspects – Venus Rx sextile Neptune and the Sun conjunct Venus Rx.

So, it’s going to be a light week in the cosmos, and since Venus is the only planet making aspects, let’s dive into the daily breakdown.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, January 3, 2022

It’s not surprising that we return from the holiday season, and the Moon is making its monthly trip through Capricorn. It’s an excellent day to hit the ground running and focus on your objectives by getting things done.  Since we are still in the sign of the New Moon, you still have time to set your intentions for the New Year before the Moon moves into Aquarius on Monday afternoon.

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

The Moon moves through Aquarius and conjoins Saturn and squares Uranus.  Unexpected situations may leave you rattled and throw a monkey wrench into your day. This could ultimately affect your mood and lead to periods of self-doubt. Push past negative thoughts and stay focused on your game plan.

Wednesday, January 5, 2022

On Wednesday, we have our first Venusian aspect of the week, as Venus Rx sextiles Neptune in Pisces. Venus sextile Neptune is an easy aspect, especially if you are looking for a little romance in your relationships. It’s an excellent day to focus on your partners needs and use this helpful energy to connect on a deeper level. If you’ve been going through relationship frustrations because of the retrograde, this is an auspicious time to work through your issues, because Neptune will help minimize your (and your partners) ego.

Thursday, January 6, 2022

The Moon moves through Pisces and forms lovely sextiles to Uranus and the Sun. It’s an excellent day to step away from the daily grind and do something fun and exciting with your tribe. In fact, unexpected opportunities may come out of your social and professional connections. Also, watch out for new people on the scene, they may inspire and invigorate you.

Friday, January 7, 2022

The Moon continues its trek through Pisces and conjoins Neptune. Communication with others will be challenging, because it will be hard to stay focused on mundane matters. Focus on issues that matter, and leave the heavy lifting for another day. Moreover, you will be sensitive to the moods of others. So, it may be best to stay away from negative people, or they may impact your mood or try to suck out your soul.

Saturday, January 8, 2022

The Sun conjoins Venus Rx in Capricorn. The Sun and Venus will bring out your social urges, and if you are in a relationship, it’s a great day to spend time with your partner. However, since the love goddess (Venus) is retrograde, it’s the perfect time to focus on the areas of your relationship that need improvement. If you need to have a difficult conversation, now is the time, because it will be easier to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

Sunday, January 9, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through energetic Aries. It’s a perfect day to get things done, especially projects that need extra gumption. Later in the day, the Moon applies to a square to Pluto in Capricorn. Avoid people who are power hungry or like to control everything.

See you next week!
