WEEK OF January 10 – 1 6, 2022
Trying to keep up with the Kardashian-Jenners again—or just your hipper-than-thou friends? One word of advice this Tuesday, January 11, Aquarius: Don’t! With impulsive Mars in your social sector staring down boundary-challenged Neptune in your financial sector, you may feel like money is burning a hole in your pocket. So much for those New Year’s resolutions to tighten the belt everywhere you can. While willpower won’t be so easy to come by today, you can recommit to your goals and not get sucked down a pricey rabbit hole. For instance, just because you get invited to go out for lunch—and maybe happy hour and perhaps a fancy dinner after THAT—doesn’t mean you have to say yes. Stick to the game plan: Eat your homemade lunch, go home after work, catch up on emails or watch a show, knowing you’re building toward something more meaningful. By staying focused on the bigger picture, you will have more resistance to the little temptations that (inevitably) crop up.
You’ll be glad you practiced tapping into your reserve tanks early in the week because on Friday, communicator Mercury kicks off its first retrograde of 2022—in Aquarius! All those big ideas and clever messages may go into mothballs for a while as Mercury reverse-commutes first through your sign and then, on January 25, backflips into Capricorn and your twelfth house of mysticism and healing, staying in backward motion until February 3. You may have to wait till February to light up the sky with your genius. For now, use this week to do all the positive retrograde activities: review, reconsider, redesign and revise. The more you scrutinize this, the more on-point and convincing it will be.
With the messenger planet firing up your imagination zone (January 25 to February 14), the line between fantasy and reality becomes razor thin. And since retrogrades rule the past, you might find value in reviving a back-burnered project. Hole up in your lab or studio to create or curate. You might also find yourself processing an old wound that never fully healed. Be persistent! And give the offending party a wide berth. Better to work with a professional or sympathetic friend than risk re-traumatizing yourself. The good news is, finally resolving this will not only heal your heart but crack it wide open to let love in.
You can take a VERY deep dive into those areas on Sunday, when the enlightening Sun forms its annual meetup with alchemical Pluto in Capricorn and your twelfth house of introspection, healing and release. Painful as some of this emotional excavation may be, it’s the path to spiritual awakening! By facing these hard truths without blinking, you could capture some divine downloads that guide you to something major. Some Water Bearers will walk away from a toxic relationship or vexing situation. You could finally drop a self-destructive habit or thought pattern. Remember, just because you believe something—or used to believe it—doesn’t mean it’s true. And even if it served a purpose in your past, you’re a different person now. Since our thoughts create our reality, it’s possible that true healing is just on the other side of some limiting belief about those circumstances. When you’re ready, just tap the potent power of strategic Pluto, and you can shed this business like a serpent molts its skin.
