The Sun is in Aquarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope until the 18th. There’s a New Moon here on the 1st, a symbol of new beginnings. However, this New Moon falls next to Saturn so there’s a theme of endings before you can start over.
This may be linked to your past or inner work. It might be something deeply personal or the part of your nature that wants to retreat and be silent. Finding some quiet as the month begins would be an ideal way to honour this New Moon.
The Full Moon also falls this month when the Sun’s in Aquarius and the Moon’s in Leo. This takes place on the 16th, two days after talk planet Mercury returns to Aquarius on the 14th. This is a powerful time to trust your intuition, listen to your dreams and read the signs of the universe. This could help you make a decision about your work or your health.
If you’re true to your star sign, you have a deeply psychic and instinctual nature. This is about the hidden places, secrets and confidences. You may have to return to an ethical or moral dilemma, knowing how much to reveal and when to stay silent.
Don’t rush into life but pace yourself while the Sun’s in Aquarius. It’s important to strengthen your inner self before engaging actively with the world.
Friends & Connections
This is even more important this month because there’s a lot of planetary activity taking place in Capricorn and your friendship and group sector. You might be unusually busy now or be trying to take care of lots of different people in your life. You are one of life’s givers but when you give too much, you have nothing left for yourself.
This month, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, are side by side in Capricorn. There’s a theme of love and friendship and the lovers unite on the 16th, the day of the glorious Full Moon.
This indicates that there’s strength in partnership, connections and collaborations. Get the right friends and acquaintances on your side and you may feel more secure, for whatever reason. It’s a good month to build for the future alongside people you trust and care about. The 23rd & 24th could be stand-out dates in this respect.
The other inner planet in Capricorn is Mercury. The planet of communication turns direct here on the 4th. This could bring you back into contact with someone who’s been quiet or missing in your life. It’s a good date to reach out to a friend, catch up with others and aim to be forward-thinking in your group endeavours.
Once the Sun enters your star sign Pisces on the 18th, it’s important to ensure the focus is on you and your personal goals and aims. When planets are in your star sign, focus on your image and profile and consider how other people see you and how you come across in the world. Put yourself first. Care for yourself first, others second.
The Sun represents energy and vitality. You often feel a boost of confidence or an energy surge once the Sun is back in your star sign. One of this month’s themes is about looking after yourself and not giving too much elsewhere.
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.
This is important for you because Jupiter is one of your ruling planets strong in Pisces. This is about big dreams, your hopes and wishes for the world but also yourself and your personal goals.
Uranus is active in Taurus and your communication sector. This is about the written and spoken word and Taurus rules your neighbourhood, your community and life close to home.
You may want to take on an activist role, take the lead or help out in some way. Taurus rules your siblings and neighbours. Sometimes, when Uranus is active, external events step in and lead you in a new direction.
This is about forging new alliances, finding friends who can help you personally and professionally and joining in with the collective. In fact, this may become a priority for you in the second half of the month.
This combination feels inspirational and it’s helpful for looking to the future and immersing yourself in your hopes and wishes for what next. You may have a big mission in life. Or, perhaps you’re becoming more involved with a specific group or friend.
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
