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…
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.
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!

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!
