January 2022 Astrology
January transitions us into 2022.
Back in January 2020 we had the outer planets in Capricorn. Outer planetary energy is collective and outside our control. Our outside world changed abruptly.
This January 2022 brings Pluto Conjunctions with Mercury, Venus and the Sun—--all in Capricorn, and these are our personal planets. Personal planets are about change within us.
Because Pluto will be so close to these personal planets things will get personal, ushering in transformation at our core, identity level. We will be losing the old model of our self and raising our vibration to become the soul we incarnated to be, making this a very powerful month.
January 2nd—New Moon In Capricorn
This is the best time to set your intentions and goals that reflect where and who you wish to be in the future for 2022. Perfect energy to bring in positive change, freedom, and higher self-awareness. Time to move into your future!
January 8th –Sun Conjunct Venus (Retrograde) In Capricorn
The Sun-Venus conjunction helps us get crystal clear about what really matters in our life. What’s truly important to you?
This brings love, peace, harmony, and beauty, with a focus on your love relationships, creativity, and finances. This pleasant, affectionate, charming, and sociable influence is a good omen for friendships and romance.
January 11: Mars (Sagittarius) Squares Neptune (Pisces)
This is an intense day. Watch tendency to be suspicious and paranoid, jealous or vindictive. Neptune brings confusion and people not thinking clearly. Avoid the temptation to act against others due to such clouded judgment. Even if there is some truth to rumors, suspicions or deceit, taking action will come back to bite you in the ass.
January 12 – 18: Mars Ghandanta
According to Vedic Astrology, Ghandanta happens when planets are in the last degrees of a water sign and the initial first degrees of a fire sign.
This will bring emotional issues globally. The world will feel like it is out of control. This can also indicate natural disasters, such as storms, severe weather, and earthquakes. This is a time of huge transitions and transformation.
January 14th – 25th - Mercury Begins Retrograde In Aquarius. On January 26-February 2 Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn
This retrograde starts off in Aquarius, then backtracks into Capricorn, where everything gets more confusing. While Mercury retrograde is in Aquarius, instead of focusing on future plans, this period is better spent reviewing the stability of your recent decisions and paying closer attention to the way you interact with the people around you. Capricorn is about financial markets and the economy. This could bring change.
January 16th – Sun Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn
Another intense day that can lead to power struggles. Because the Sun is shining it’s light on Pluto, the hidden planet, you may gain insights about any destructive behaviors you or a partner may have such as obsessions and addictions. Although this is not an easy time, it is a practical time to get to the bottom of any serious relationship difficulties. This makes us all look at our higher truth.
January 17th—Full Moon In Cancer
The Full Moon is opposite Pluto, reinforcing the transformation and renewal themes of this month. This energy may revive old power struggles. Full moons can attract drama in families. Time to meditate, take a hot bath, cook a nutritious meal and rest.
January 18th—North Node Enters Taurus, South Node Enters Scorpio
One of the most important events of the year! The Lunar Nodes change signs. The North Node leaves Gemini and moves into Taurus, and the South Node leaves Sagittarius and moves into Scorpio. The themes now move from communication, movement, travel, education and laws to Taurus-Scorpio themes of values, finances, possessions, earth and transformation.
January 18th—Uranus Goes Direct in Taurus
Uranus is the planet of shocks and surprises, but it was inhibited while in retrograde since August 2021. It's been in a period of relative quiet, but when it's direct we may experience both brilliant and disturbing ideas and events. All of those urges we had been suppressing since last year will erupt on a personal and global scale.
Uranus in Taurus represents sudden and unexpected events, including revolutionary ways of handling and dealing with money, both nationwide and worldwide, which we've seen during its time in this sign.
January 20th—Sun Enters Aquarius
This will bring a time of reflection to your life. Use a new, wider lens to view and expand your life.
January 23rd—Sun in Aquarius Conjunct Mercury Retrograde In Aquarius
Sun conjunct Mercury transit puts the focus on your thinking and communications, and short distance travel. This is a day of deep mental internalization. Everything will feel as if it is changing rapidly. Expect delays in meetings and travel.
January 24th – March 6 - Mars Enters Capricorn
Mars in Capricorn will give you that extra stamina and persistence so you follow through with your projects, no matter what you are working on.
Mars in Capricorn is deliberate, persistent energy. This enables us to consider the future and the consequences before taking action during this cycle. Mars in Capricorn is slow to anger but can be quite intense and may bring frustration. The shadow side of Mars in Capricorn is rigidity.
January 29th—Venus Goes Direct (in Capricorn); Mercury (Retrograde in Capricorn) Conjunct Pluto (in Capricorn)
This brings plenty of that Capricorn practical energy to relationships.
Reflect on this Venus retrograde as to what you have learned about yourself. What has your partner mirrored back to you concerning your true beliefs about yourself. This is a potential time for healing in relationships.
January brings us on a journey to begin the process of transformation. Stay open, reflect, observe. Keep a journal as you develop psychically and spiritually. Pay close attention to the signs from the Universe. We all wanted to be here for this deep time of bringing Heaven and Earth together.
