The astrology forecast for the week of January 24, 2022 through January 30, 2022 features two major aspects (Mercury conjunct Pluto, Sun square Uranus), two sign changes (Mars in Capricorn, Mercury Rx in Capricorn) and Venus turns direct.
It’s going to be a busy week. So, without further ado…
This week we have two sign changes – Mars moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, and Mercury has unfinished business as he retrogrades back into the sign of the sea goat. So, there is a lot of Capricorn energy we will still be working through, despite the Sun having moved into Aquarius.
Capricorn is an earth sign. It likes things to be solid, secure, and stable, and is concerned with tangible reality. So, any planet that moves through the sign of the goat will express itself in Capricornian ways.
Mars is an action planet. He goes out into the world and gets you what you want, and is even willing to fight for it. However, rather than approaching things impulsively, Mars is strategic and has tenacity in earthy Capricorn. In Capricorn, Mars is concerned with position and status and is willing to work nonstop to achieve what he desires. While Mas is in the sign of the sea-goat, you can take advantage of Capricornian discipline and focus on projects that matter, helping push you to the next level. This is where you need to strategize your long game and look towards your big picture objectives.
Now, on to Mercury.
Mercury reversed course on January 14, 2022 in the sign of Aquarius. However, this week he will retrograde back into Capricorn. Whereas Aquarius is concerned with making your life better, Mercury moving back into Capricorn ensures you have all the facts straight. Mercury’s reflective mode in Capricorn will help Mars create better strategies that will help you once Mercury turns direct. Use this period to look at your life, stick to the facts, and then develop a plan of action (Mercury being copresent with Mars) to get the results you ultimately desire.
