We start off the year with Jupiter in Pisces!!! This is one of the defining and most anticipated astrological events of 2022! Jupiter is known as “The Great Benefic.” It shows us opportunities for growth, expansion and happiness. Jupiter’s role is to raise our awareness beyond the physical world. The themes of this energy will include unity, creativity, greater intuition and imaginative thoughts and ideas.
This time will be about encouraging us to reach, expand and improve. We are also continuing to feel the Venus retrograde vibe! This transit began on December 19th and will last through January 29th. Learn more about 40 Days and 40 Nights here!
On January 1st, the planet of action switches signs to airy Aquarius. At this time, Mercury will put a focus on our social circles, friends, thinking unconventionally and working towards shared goals in a collaborative way. So, on January 14 through February 3rd, Mercury will be in its retrograde cycle. This retrograde starts off in Aquarius, then backpedals its way into Capricorn, where it will stay for the rest of the month. Mercury rules travel, communication and technology. Because of this, disruption in these areas can be expected, so leave extra time for the unexpected. This retrograde will give us an opportunity for a second chance to review the stability of our intentions set from the New Moon or your New Year’s Eve goals. Be sure to also pay closer attention to the way you work and interact with the people around you. To learn more, I’ve written a full Mercury Survival Guide.
On January 2nd, we have our first lunation…a New Moon at 12° of Capricorn. Capricorn is the 10th sign in the zodiac and represents discipline, authority, goals and order. New Moons are a summon to dream and an invitation to initiate. They represent a clean slate to begin anew. Use this opportunity to set intentions in-line with the qualities and themes of Capricorn energy. This is perfect timing to set your New Year’s goals that you want to manifest for the upcoming year. Make the most of this lunation by creating tangible plans that you can stick to. This Capricorn New Moon will add the needed discipline, focus and determination to carry through with your plans, ideas and goals.
