Your ruling planet is Venus linked to love and money. From December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022, Venus was retrograde, i.e. in retreat. This month, however, Venus is back up to speed and completing her journey through Capricorn and your home and family sector.
Capricorn is the star sign at the base of your horoscope. It’s about your roots, your legacy and where you come from. You may have been delving deep into the past while Venus has been down in the underworld. Or, perhaps you’ve been dealing with a stressful or painful situation at home or within your family.
Venus isn’t the only planet in Capricorn this month. Talk planet Mercury turns direct here on the 4th. Listen out for a turning point, news or information that helps you move forwards. It’s a good date to heal a rift or reopen the lines of communication. This may be linked to a property deal, a family matter or a domestic situation.
There’s support on hand this month too as Venus is moving through Capricorn alongside Mars, the planet of action. In mythology, Venus and Mars were lovers and together there’s a theme of partnership or collaboration. You may find the right person to help you this month, whatever your personal needs. You might be moving in with someone for the first time. Or, perhaps you’re trying out a new living situation.
Whatever’s foreground in your life, aim for unity. This suits you best being a Libra as you often find conflict situations harder than most people. Venus and Mars come together on the 16th, the day of a stunning Full Moon. This could be significant – reach out to others and aim to get the right people on your side.
The Sun is in an air sign up until the 18th, Aquarius. This is easier and lighter for you and a symbol of joyfulness and fun. Aquarius rules one of the most creative sectors of your horoscope. It’s less about work and more about play.
On the 1st, there’s a New Moon in Aquarius, a symbol of new beginnings. This New Moon, however, pulls in the Saturn-Uranus square. Notice where you’re feeling held back in life and where you want to break free. Restrictions could kick in stopping you from living your life the way you choose.
Yet, Saturn’s the planet of self-discipline so it’s a good New Moon to commit to a routine or habit, a skill or talent. It’s a promising New Moon if you’re a parent and want to put new rules or guidelines in place.
Aquarius is your romance sector and the Full Moon on the 16th looks glorious for love and romance. As mentioned previously, this is the day when the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite. Make the most of this, celebrate, be social and be open to meeting someone new if you’re looking for love.
It’s a similar scenario for Valentines Day, the 14th, as this is when talk planet Mercury returns to Aquarius. It’s not the most romantic symbol for love but it’s great for linking friendship and love.
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.
Uranus in Taurus is a lively influence. Taurus rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope and is linked to the metaphysical realm and hidden or taboo issues. Money may come your way unexpectedly mid-month or perhaps you receive an inheritance or tax rebate. Certainly, there’s the possibility of money coming in.
Be innovative around work, money and finances in the middle of the month. Jupiter in Pisces is lighting up one of your work sectors and this could be a time when you break free from a job or role that holds you back. Or, a new work opportunity arises.
Pisces is a sign that has a lot in common with your own sign of Libra as you’re both natural givers. As a Sun Libra, you often believe that what you give you receive in return.
Once the Sun is in Pisces from the 18th onwards, this is gorgeous for connecting with work colleagues and teaming up with other people, both at home and at work, to help or offer mutual support. The 23rd & 24th could be stand-out dates in this respect.
Focus your energy and attention on your work and health, your foundations and security this month as the rewards could be more than worth it.
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
