Mercury is now Retrograde in Capricorn. This is the time to reinvent yourself by thinking about your goals differently. Remembering what got you to where you are, and how you might do things in a different way to create meaningful change is indicated this week. Imagining the change is a crucial step to creating the shifts.
Venus enters Aquarius January 2, 2023 9:10 pm ET.
Relationships to people, groups and social circles are in focus. Identity and how people fit in with others is especially emphasized with Venus connecting with Jupiter in Aries on the 4th. Although society likes to apply countless labels to everyone, it is your own definition of yourself that really matters. We are reminded to develop real self-worth on your own terms.
As Venus gets closer to connecting with Saturn in Aquarius on January 22nd we will see more examples demonstrating if relationships are authentic or are they based on social rules, peer pressure and expectations. We will also see more about how the love of money has created limits on society.
We could also see how rich people use the reputation of philanthropy as a tool to attract adoration and money.
Venus will be in Aquarius until January 27, 2023.
Full Moon in Cancer January 6, 2023 6:07 pm ET.
The last Full Moon was in Gemini, and we just had the New Moon in Capricorn during the holidays. Now we have the Full Moon in Cancer in opposition to the Sun and Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn.
This puts a spotlight on home and family life while reconsidering your larger goals, career, reputation and financial situation. What do you want to change? Do you feel comfortable and secure in your personal life or do you need to make changes? Is your career helping or hindering your home life?
Of course, emotional reactions can be extra intense with a Full Moon. Perceptions could be off and information can be unreliable and untrue with Mercury Retrograde now. We could see examples of people, including celebrities and politicians, putting extra energy into protecting their reputations.
Around this Full Moon in Cancer, the Sun connects with Uranus in Taurus January 5, 2023 11:42 am ET. Then the Sun and Mercury Retrograde conjunct in Capricorn on January 7, 2023 7:56 am ET. Mercury Retrograde will then connect positively with Uranus on January 8, 2023 6:22 pm ET.
Information and misinformation that comes out now can reveal a lot. We could also see an inside, behind the scenes look at current and future plans for linking information, technology, the environment, body and money. Leaked information of rich, and therefore powerful, corporate leaders, celebrities and politicians is likely this week.
A lot of people could wake up when they realize how information and data is often untruthful, especially when altered by hidden, special interests. With a Full Moon in Cancer this week, trusting gut instincts can be more reliable than information, especially hearsay and hyped opinions.
