The astrology forecast for the week of December 27, 2021 – January 2, 2022 features 4 major aspects (Mercury conjunct Venus Rx), Mars sextile Saturn, Mercury conjunct Pluto, and Sun trine Uranus), two sign changes (Mercury in Aquarius and Jupiter in Pisces), and the New Moon in Capricorn.
Like the first week of the year, the last week of 2021 is filled with action. But before we get into the weeks forecast, I want to thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my forecasts and support my work. I am grateful and honored to have you on my journey. I wish each of you a happy and prosperous New Year.
Now, on with the show…
The headliner this week is Jupiter, who is finally moving out of Aquarius and back into his own sign of Pisces.
But, what’s the big deal about the big guy in the sky?
Jupiter is how we develop meaning in life. He is optimistic, benevolent, and expansive. He uplifts anything in the chart he touches, and is the Santa Claus figure of the cosmos. Since Jupiter rules Pisces, the sign he moves into on December 28, he has an added boost of planetary power and can help troubling matters. Essentially, Jupiter is our “Lucky Star.”
Jupiter in Pisces renews our faith through our belief in other human beings. I know that this is difficult to understand with so much division and strife in our world, especially since Jupiter’s benevolence has been reduced, being in the same sign as Saturn for two years. However, once Jupiter enters Pisces, he is free from Saturn’s influence, and our love and empathy for others should begin to return. Since Pisces is a malleable sign, we may begin to see people more receptive to the plight of others, and we can hope that selfishness is put aside for the greater good. More importantly, we will all be a little more compassionate in our dealings with others.
The first New Moon of the Year happens on January 2nd in Capricorn. This is the most powerful point of Capricorn season, and it’s an auspicious time to start the year on a solid footing, especially since Capricorn season is goal-oriented and can give you an extra boost.
This New Moon is excellent for finding a new job, getting a promotion or raise, starting a business, or doing maintenance magic or intention work on an existing business. Capricorn season is also excellent for reputation building and repair. And, of course, since Capricorn is an earth sign, focusing on your finances never hurt anyone.

We start the week off with the Moon moving through fair-and-balanced Libra, and she makes favorable aspects to Mars and Saturn. It’s an excellent day to push forward with your agenda, because the Moon in Libra keeps other people’s circumstances in mind. Take advantage of any business opportunities presented to you, because they will likely pay off with the Moon trine stable Saturn.

Besides Jupiter moving into Pisces (see above), the Moon continues her trip through Libra and forms tense aspects to Mercury, Venus Rx, and Pluto. Stay on your toes, because conflict could easily erupt, especially if grievances have been brewing beneath the surface. Remain as proactive as possible, and don’t react to anything you may potentially regret later.

Wednesday brings us two major aspects – Mercury conjunct Venus Rx and Mars sextile Saturn.
During the early morning hours, Mercury conjoins Venus Rx in Capricorn. If you’ve experienced troubles in your relationships because of Venus Rx, Mercury conjoining the love goddess will help you understand your relationship on a deeper level. It’s also a good time to open the lines of communication and get your feelings out in the open in a constructive way.
Later in the day, Mars sextiles Saturn in Aquarius. Mars sextile Saturn augurs a time to plan and strategize your next step. It’s great for career ambitions, and you should use this energy to go after what you want, especially if it’s something you would love to do. The only drawback to this aspect is the need to be patient and take things one step at a time. The slower you go, the better your results will be.
Thursday, December 30, 2021
After hooking up with the love goddess, Mercury moves on to conjoin Pluto. Communication with others will be deep and intense. You may be put in a position where what you say could potentially influence others for better or worse. Try to avoid coercion, because it could potentially lead to power struggles. Avoid gossip and keep your secrets to yourself!
Friday, December 31, 2021
New Year’s Eve brings us the Moon moving through festive Sagittarius. It’s an excellent day for a celebration, and your mood will be more joyful than usual. Despite the difficulties we have experienced over the last year, keep your eye on the future and reach for the stars.
Saturday, January 1, 2022
Happy New Year’s! We start the year with a lovely trine between the Sun in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. After the tribulations of 2020 and 2021, let’s hope that the energy of Sun trine Uranus gives us the ability to think outside the box and make changes in our lives when necessary.
On the personal level, Sun trine Uranus encourages you to try new things and shake up your life with new activities that may potentially inspire you.
Sunday, January 2, 2022
We close the week out with Mercury moving into social Aquarius and the New Moon (see above) in Capricorn.
During the early morning hours, Mercury moves into Aquarius, the sign he will turn retrograde in on January 14th. Mercury in Aquarius helps us put the puzzles and pieces of life together, as we understand that life is a tapestry of one experience leading to another. We are given the gift of understanding patterns both personally and universally. While Mercury is in Aquarius, it’s much easier to get to the truth and use it to your advantage.
Later in the day, we have the New Moon in Capricorn. So, get your New Moon intentions in order, and use the energy of the New Moon to make things happen.
See you next year!
