Weekly Astrology Forecast: January 31 - February 6, 2022
Have the past few weeks left you feeling disconnected and out of sorts? Then you’re going to want to read all about the most important transit occurring this week that’s bound to bring you some relief.
The first big transit this week occurs on February 1st, when we experience a New Moon in the sign of Aquarius. This is the perfect time to manifest, particularly regarding your revolutionary ideas and the ways in which you want to change the world!
You probably haven’t forgotten about the Mercury retrograde period that began on January 14th, also in the sign of Aquarius. Mercury – as the sign of communication, information, and the mind – makes some aspects of life feel particularly tense or challenging when it’s retrograde.
If you’ve struggled to get your point across or even get to your destination without frustration in the past few weeks, you’re not alone.
Thankfully, Mercury is getting back on track on February 3rd when it moves direct once again, this time – briefly – in grounded Capricorn. But it’s important to remember that it takes a bit of time for Mercury to gain full speed once again – there is a shadow period both before and after this transit to consider.
So, while it may not feel like everything is falling perfectly into place right away, there are plenty of things to start looking forward to!
During this post-shadow period, reflect on what you’ve learned over this Mercury retrograde period. Continue to write your thoughts and feelings down and start making plans for the projects you feel excited to get started on.
This post-shadow period will be over by February 23rd when you can truly celebrate the sense of clear communication, mental clarity, and pleasant journeys!
What Can You Expect for the Week of January 31 – February 6, 2022?
It’s Time to Prepare, Plan, & Get Connected
This week, let your mind wander and conjure up all of the exciting plans you have for the near future. And while Mercury may not be fully back to speed by February 3rd, communication will flow more naturally and compassionately than it has been the past few weeks.
If you’ve felt disconnected, this is a good time to try to get back into the groove of intimacy and vulnerability with loved ones.
Allow yourself to feel the enthusiasm for new opportunities and deeper connections. Mercury retrograde brought plenty of challenges, but it’s time to learn from them and look forward to the future!
