Astrology January 2022
ARIES I could write about this month, but I think it’s more productive to describe your flavour of the Year & that, Aries, is a spiritual Mission! Jupiter, the Planet of expansion, moves into Pisces & your 12th House. This is the area of life where the focus is on fantasies, inspiration, the subconscious, dreams & secrets. We could say the side of your “secret self”, the part you don’t show others is under construction. Woosy Signs might struggle here, s there’s always a shadowy side to the above, but Aries is courageous & refuses to give up or be tied down “just because”. You have the chance to bust out of any beliefs which hold you back & to rework & upgrade your CORE stand point. Who are you now? A Spiritual Wizard & Intuitive Warrior! GO Aries GO!
TAURUS Your overarching energy for the Year is to think BIG, Taurus. Yes, we could chat about January, but that’s such a small bite to take into consideration, especially when you have a whole twelve months of goodness to tap into. Obviously there will still be challenges ahead, there always are! But for you, it’s your wishes, hopes & goals where gold lies. So, what are they? If you knuckle down & get a plan, you can expand & make large gains. Support from organisations, groups you’re involved in (or would like to be, sign up already!)… or some sort of collective can advance you now & they’ll do it with a smile! Your social circle is also set to benefit, with helpful peole showing up. Making new, more aligned friends is on the cards too. After a period of contraction you now have a chance to regenerate & grow. Aim well.
GEMINI This Year, the Planet of expansion, Jupiter, is traveling through the highest part of your chart, Gemini! He arrived just a couple of days ago & will be with you for the next twelve months or so. This means your vocation in life, your “calling”, comes under scrutiny. What’s your true purpose? Your occupation, career, your aims, ambitions, status & reputation can be realigned & built upon. Your accomplishments will be recognised by authority figures around you & reward is up for grabs. So if you want to move another rung or two up the ladder, get yourself into gear & take aim! This energy can offer up a quick start if you’re thinking about changing your career & taking on a more responsible, higher up role. You may even find a way to be your own boss, if you’re so inclined. Look out World, cause here you come!
CANCER The Meaning of Life! What is it for you? This Year you’ll have a whole lot of questions surrounding this topic & when you find yourself asking “What’s the point?” you’ll feel tasked to find the answer & realign yourself accordingly! Travel is a theme too, it may be of a physical nature but there’s definitely a metaphorical voyage as well. If you set out on a journey of discovery, you’ll find some great minds along the way… teachers & Gurus abound. You might even find yourself in such roles! The Planet Jupiter, who deals in expansion, is in fellow Water Sign, Pisces. This means there’s Flow here. What’s asked of you re all the above will feel GOOD. Feel INSPIRING! Where do you want to direct alllll that energy, Cancerians? Take your time, think it through & set sail.
LEO Change, transformation & perhaps a big mystery to be solved are all elements of your Year. Your intuition is on fire all of 2022 too, but it’s the kind where you quietly take note & keep things to yourself to ponder. You may be drawn to delve into your financial situation & take a Big Picture look at where you stand now realistically & what you truly want for yourself ongoing. SO much shifted last Year & you’ve had to run around juggling & fielding just to keep up & break even. Now you’ve got a minute to play catch up emotionally. You’ll possibly be feeling quite reflective about it all. Take your time, no one is chasing you! Work out what you’d like to put in place. You may need to make a couple of sacrifices to get what you ultimately want, but as long as you’re feeling passionate about whatever that turns out to be, you can move mountains & make it happen. Metamorphosis, Leo!
VIRGO A couple of days ago, Jupiter, Planet of expansion, moved into the sector of your Chart which deals with partnerships. Significant because His influence in these areas of your life will be around throughout the whole of 2022! you usually work very hard on your relationships, in general, so this is like getting a tail wind or supercharge. Both romantic & business connections can be built upon & taken up a level or two & for those of you who are single & looking, this is a very fortunate & favourable Year long trend! The way you relate to those closest to you, the way you collaborate, cooperate, share resources, work, love, create & play (phew!) are a BIG focus AND harmony can be found. Use those lovely powers of discernment, take your time, work out what you want from all the above &… go for it, Virgo!!
LIBRA Your theme this Year is self improvement & before you start groaning, Libra, it’s a subjective thing! This doesn’t need to be some hard slog… it’s totally up to YOU to direct the energy in ways you’d LIKE. For example, if you’re advised to get active? There are dozens of different ways of doing so. You don’t have to put in a grueling round on a squash court, you could go swimming, take up yoga, do tai chi etc. There’s a lot of emphasis on your health & doing better consistently, there. But it’s also about your appearance & upping your mental savvy too. Learn something inspiring, take that workshop/short course. All things “Mind, Body & Spirit are SO you in 2022. Make yourself & your wellbeing an underlying mission for the Year. You’ll enjoy it once you get going because fairly swift positive outcomes are virtually ensured. Win/Win.
SCORPIO You’re about to be offered a smorgasbord, Scorpio & it’s full of things you’ll actually LIKE! The Planet playing host is Jupiter & He’s all about expansion. If worked the right way? Bounty & abundance, fun & games, play, pleasure, entertainment & anything you do creatively are, put simply, LIT.Yes there are always some challenges on our path, but for you guys, 2022 has a lightness to it. One you may not have felt in say… Oh… about 12 years. If you’ve got a side gig, a creative pursuit you adore, you could find ways of expanding that too & turn it into a “real job”. If you want to step out of your corporate suit into something more fitting with who you are now, look into it & take it seriously! Your approach should be well thought out & calculated rather than an all out gamble. Do everything a step at a time & in moderation & you’ll achieve a LOT.
SAGITTARIUS Home is where the heart is throughout 2022 & although you guys are such gadabouts, perhaps hardly spending time there, you’ll probably find you’re focusing in more & more on where you hang your boots. Your old home environment may seem like it’s melting or it might just be your beliefs surrounding all that. If so? What do you want things to look like in future? Many of you will make changes… remodeling, redecorating, renovating or on a grander scale, relocating. The people you gather at your hearth may morph & shift as well, your foundation, your family (your Mum or how YOU Mother, in particular), are highlighted. This is all down to Jupiter, your Ruling Planet, playing with the energy of the Moon (feminine/emotional vibes) & working out what truly nurtures & feeds your Soul. If this sounds mysterious, it is! but you’re never one to shy away from solving a mystery or going on an adventure. The above is your playing field, the puzzle to be completed is under your own roof.
CAPRICORN You’re about to become Communications Central & this is a theme which underpins the whole Year. If you’re asking what your Super Power across the board is? This is it! Great! Because you can apply the energy anywhere & everywhere, in fact people may be surprised with how much you have to convey & the huge amount of ideas you’re generating. Hey! You might even surprise yourself. Of course if you make a living from talking, reading, researching & in particular, writing? The expansion may be HUGE! If you’d like to head in a direction which encompasses any of that, GO FOR IT! All things technology are also encapsulated, as is teaching short courses & informative workshops. There should be a bounty of short term projects coming in. Sometimes your Sign has trouble expressing what they think or feel. That block is most definitely removed. Express yourself!!
AQUARIUS Money, money, money! How you identify with it, how you make it, how you earn it, how you spend it & on what… you get the drift. For those of you mathematically inclined, your inner accountant is getting a great work out all through 2022. For those of you not good with numbers, it’ll definitely benefit you to get a financial planner or advisor of some sort. You’re NOT the most materialistic of Signs, but ya gotta admit ya need money to get by & this Year you really CAN make some of the stuff! So where do you want to point your compass? Being self sufficient, self reliant & autonomous is important to you, so I’d say expanding on your original ideas in a way that allows you to be ever more independent would be an excellent place to start. Those creative ideas, coupled with your natural talents, abilities & “knacks” will stand you in good stead this Year, so take yourself seriously & cash in on them.
PISCES Question. Is honey the higher octave of sugar? I’d say yes & as this year is about sweetness, your focus needs to be on nutrient rich things which offer up long term, sustaining benefits. No immediate gratification & empty calories for you. Last Year you learned SO much about your value in this World. You quietly said the occasional “No”, held a boundary or two & appreciated YOUR SELF. I’d say you’ve climbed the ladder of empowerment & now? You’re The Queen of Your Castle. What Castle?? A HA! That’s your mission! Build it. This may be the best kind of tail wind you’ve had in over a decade. It’s totally worth your time, planning & effort to start creating a Realm of your liking. Get inspired, get motivated, get a plan & Aim High re: Everything. You’ve got all the tools & savvy you need, Pisces. Go, Go, GO!
For those of you who track the path of the Moon, I’ve included the Date, Time, Degree & Sign of both Full & New Moons:
NEW MOON: Monday, January 3rd, at 05:33 @12 Degrees of Capricorn.
FULL MOON: Tuesday, January 18th, at 10:48 @27 Degrees of Cancer.
*Moon info is based on local time (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia).
Typically, we read Astro Information based on our Sun Sign, however you can gain much better insight if you read for both your Sun, Rising (or Ascendant) & Moon Signs. You can ascertain these by going to a free Chart calculator (there are many online now!) & entering your own personal information. Usually, we’re asked for our time of birth & it can prove a sticking point if we don’t know it! If you don’t know your exact time of birth, enter Noon (12:00pm) where asked, & this will serve as a “happy medium”. Take the time to do this (you’ll only have to do it once, not every month) & note the Sign of your 1st House & your Moon Sign. They’re often different from your Sun Sign, but knowing this “trifecta” offers information that’s deeper & more relevant to who you really are. This way, Astrology will start to make a lot more sense to you, personally.
