For the Month of: January 2022

January - Although there is slight tension and opposition at the beginning of January, the New Year comes dashing in with faith, emotional intelligence, strength, and a renewed sense of hope in partnerships. In 2021, you dealt with a massive overhaul of emotional struggles spilling into all areas of your life. Now, expect a sense of completion and spiritual fulfillment.

This month’s New Moon takes place in fellow Cardinal sign Capricorn on the 2nd. New Moons act as brand-new magical beginnings and a chance to wipe the slate clean. Since the Moon is your ruling planet, you are bound to feel the extreme transits and intensity through the signs and phases. The natural opposition between Cancer and Capricorn suggests there is an emotional struggle to buckle down and set realistic goals. Cancer Risings, the New Moon in Capricorn will transit through your 7th (whole) house of legal contracts and relationships, suggesting the need to structure discernment in partnerships and intimate relationships. You will likely crave a greater degree of emotional connectedness and may slight a sense of coldness from others. If issues of trust resurface, use this lunar cycle as a chance to wipe the slate clean and build a healthier relationship with yourself and others.

Mercury moves into Aquarius a few hours before the New Moon and goes retrograde on the 14th. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius is an excellent time to get in touch with all the hidden aspects of yourself and face some of those deep-rooted emotional fears. Expect to feel more intuitive during this time, and as a result, you may feel the urge to do something unconventional.

January’s Full Moon occurs 27 degrees in your sign, acting as an illumination of personal change and self-discovery. Full Moons represent the peak in the lunation cycle, where the Moon reaches maximum fullness. You usually tend to feel these shifts days in advance, emotionally prepping you for what’s to come. Cancer Risings, the Full Moon will transit through your 1st (whole) house of appearance, identity, and personality, prompting a massive emotional and mental reconstruction. You may find yourself wanting to change or revamp your looks. There is a lot to learn about yourself when you face those raw and scary emotions.

Uranus is a planet known for sudden change and surprises. On Tuesday the 18th, Uranus stations direct in practical Earth sign Taurus, causing emotional moments of awakening and clarity. Changes in your social circle are bound to occur if they haven’t by now. You may find yourself wanting to join a new group or cause. Use this energy productively.

The Sun eases out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on the 18th. This energy pushes you to apply a more playful a unique approach to relationships, intimacy, sex, and taboos. Expect topics surrounding joint finances to arise. Sex life may prove to be hot and steamy. Take this chance to reconnect to the powerful parts of yourself and transform.

You are not out of it clear with Capricorn energy just yet, seeing as how Mars enters Capricorn on the 24th, Mercury retrograde enters on the 25th, and Venus stations direct on the 29th. This Capricorn Stellium is directing your energy toward relationships and legal contracts. Now that Venus is direct, you may experience more ease when making important decisions in relationships. When you can harness the high-vibe energy and draw it into your life, you set yourself up for material gain in the upcoming seasons.

Energy tip for January, To create long-term success and financial abundance, you must prioritize your needs first.
