Love & Partnership
Relationships are a major part of the planetary picture for you this month. You could find yourself up against opposition. Certainly, you may have to push hard to get your own way at times and not everyone will be on your side.
This is because action planet Mars is moving through Capricorn and your partnership sector, where it remains until early March. This is often a competitive period in your life, when you find out who your enemies are as well as your fans. Keep close tabs on your relationships and dig beneath the surface to find out what’s really going on.
Yet, there is an added factor and that’s Venus. Venus represents love and has been in Capricorn and your relationship sector since early November. If you’ve been diving deep into a love affair, you’re feeling Venus’ positive vibes.
However, Venus has been retrograde and only turned direct on January 29th. A love relationship may be off or on again. Plus, talk planet Mercury also turns direct in Capricorn this month on the 4th. These turning points seem to suggest that the lines of communication are wide open once again and it’s time to actively engage with your one-to-ones. Sort out any misunderstandings and aim to heal any rifts.
Venus and Mars are a strong team this month so find your partner, your soul-mate, your confidante. Walk alongside side one another, hand-in-hand. The stand-out date for love could be the 16th when Venus and Mars unite in Capricorn on the same day as a glorious Full Moon. It would be a wonderful date for a proposal or marriage.
The 23rd and 24th are equally romantic so line up something special if you’re lucky enough to be in a relationship that boosts your life. And, in all your one-to-ones, get the right people on your side and make key alliances.
Money is part of the picture too with the Sun in Aquarius and your joint finance sector up until the 18th. You may be sorting out a financial issue or you have a partner who’s doing well which gives you more options.
The New Moon on the 1st could be pivotal for money matters. This New Moon sits next to Saturn, your partner planet. It’s a good New Moon to finalise an agreement or draw up new plans. There is a realistic edge to finances with Saturn involved but take a step in the right direction.
The Full Moon in Leo on the 16th is potentially another pivotal date for money matters as it cuts across the financial axis of your horoscope. Keep your eye on the ball if new opportunities arise regarding your money and security. Trust your intuition during the Full Moon energy.
At this Full Moon, talk planet Mercury is back in Aquarius from the 14th onwards. Don’t bury your head in the sand regarding finances and make the most of the theme of second chances. It’s a key month to tackle a sensitive or taboo issue. Aquarius not only rules money in your horoscope but all things hidden and esoteric.
There’s another strong planetary influence this month as one of the major aspects of 2022 takes place on the 18th. On the day that the Sun enters Pisces, big planet Jupiter in Pisces aligns with Uranus in Taurus. These two planets are entrepreneurial and freedom-loving. They represent breakthroughs and leaps of faith.
Friends, acquaintances and colleagues could play a key role in this month’s events. This is because Uranus is active in Taurus and your friendship and group sector.
These areas of your life are where excitement is likely, whether you’re meeting new people or you’re keen to socialise more. Uranus is the planet of technology so this is about the internet and online connections too.
You may have a strong sense that you want to be part of society or your community. Or, do your bit for politics, the environment or social causes. You’re one of the cardinal signs of the zodiac and this is where you can be a leader, a pioneer and innovator.
Dreams & Imagination
The Jupiter-Uranus connection could bring a breakthrough regarding travel or study, the bigger picture of life. This takes place as the Sun enters Pisces, your fellow water sign, on the 18th.
It’s here where there’s going to be plenty of planetary activity over the next couple of months as the personal planets wash into Pisces’ seas. This means you’re in your element and it’s a good time to actively pursue your dreams and do more of what you love.
The astrological picture is ideal for losing yourself in a good way and knowing that sentiment and emotions can enrich your life. You may feel more in touch with your creative or spiritual source or have a sense that there’s more to life than your current situation.
Be a seeker and explorer and make the most of this expansive period in the year. Engage with your dreams and vivid imagination. This is about your vision for the future and the world beyond the ego and the everyday.
Mercury Turning Direct
Here are some guidelines for when the communication planet is moving in the right direction after the 4th:
- try again – second chances are a classic Mercury direct theme
- sort out any misunderstandings
- consider what Mercury retrograde taught you, i.e. where are you wasting your time?
- initiate a conversation, re-open the lines of communication
- write a list – keep it short & deal with what’s most important or urgent in your life
- handle any technological or transport issues
- plug back in & renew your energy & focus
