For the Month of: January 2022

January - January starts with a heavy rotation of Capricorn energy, and you may find yourself in conflict with certain aspects of your life and personality.

2021 was an emotional roller coaster of self-realization and growth. Now, 2022 asks you to release restrictions and negative thoughts and open yourself up to new perspectives. Feelings and beliefs that no longer serve you begin to exit yourself, connecting you deeper with your dreams.

This month's New Moon is in practical Earth sign Capricorn on the 2nd. New Moon's occur when the Sun is conjunct the Moon, sparking the start of a new lunar cycle.  This New Moon just so happens to be the closing of the eclipse portal, which opened in November—a significant clearing of heavy emotional themes and challenges.

Like yourself, Leo, Capricorn is also an alpha that shares a quest for power. But Capricorn is more conservative and traditional, focused on working long and hard to achieve the task at hand. In comparison, you tend to get things done through charm and social grace. The New Moon in Capricorn brings your attention to moderation and patience, along with rest and a consistent healthy routine to maximize wellness. Leo Risings, the New Moon will transit your 6th (whole) house of health, daily routine, and service, illuminating specific patterns that are not good for health and wellness. Pay attention to your emotions, check in with your body's feelings, and adopt a new wellness plan.  

Your ruling planet, the Sun, tightly conjuncts Venus retrograde on the 8th, helping you establish more harmony in your daily routine and work environment. This is an excellent time for reviewing work-related matters; however, you may find yourself struggling between logic and emotions when dealing with others. Your theme this year is emotional breakthroughs, so remember to be open to new perspectives.

Mercury, the planet of communication, travel, and technology stations, retrograde in Aquarius on the 14th; expect important news surrounding contracts, legal matters, and relationships. There may be little inference with plans, so be patient. Avoid assumptions and gossip.

The Sun conjuncts Pluto on the 16th, and if you are overwhelmed with your daily schedule or work, take some time out for rest so that you may avoid health issues. January's Full Moon is on the 17th in the nurturing waters of Cancer. Full Moons occur when the Sun is opposite the Moon, marking the peak in the lunar cycle. Under this energy, you will have an opportunity to embrace the unseen and get more in touch with your emotions, although you may keep them to yourself, not wanting anyone to see how sensitive you are. Work on accepting your sensitivity and being more understanding toward others. Be aware of family drama and possible secrets exposed during this time.

The rebellious and innovating planet Uranus stations direct in Taurus on the 18th after an eventful retrograde. Thanks to the natural square between Taurus and Leo, Uranus squaring all heavy Leo placements has stirred up action that called for dynamic change and shift in awareness. As a result, a revolutionary breakthrough in career and public life is on the way.

The Sun dashes out of resourceful Capricorn and into eccentric Aquarius on the 19th. The natural opposition between Leo and Aquarius may have your emotions running astray with your head in the clouds. Pay attention to people you surround yourself with and leave toxic relationships behind. 

Mars, the ambitious, fiery planet of drive and willpower, enters Capricorn on the 24th, its sign of exaltation. Mars thrives off hard work and skillful action while in Capricorn, and you may find yourself the most efficient during this time. Still, it is crucial to avoid becoming obsessively critical and impulsive.

Venus stations direct in Capricorn on the 29th, right after Mercury retrograde enters the sea-goat. You'll find yourself revisiting topics, and themes surrounding wellness and past poor health choices may resurface to haunt you.

January energy tip, taking better care of your mind, body, and spirit, attracts more opportunities of abundance in your life.
