Welcome to 2022, and get ready for an incredible journey through the cosmos in January. This year holds tremendous promise, thanks to rare astrological alignments that will shape our destinies. However, before we can fully embrace the abundance and bliss that awaits us, the universe has a few challenges in store.

Two Major Retrogrades: A Call to Slow Down and Reflect

Throughout the entire month of January, Venus will be retrograde in Capricorn (until it goes direct on January 29). Since December 19, the love goddess has been urging us to reevaluate our approach to relationships, money, and pleasure. And on January 14, Mercury, the communication master, will also go retrograde in Aquarius. It's a rare occurrence for the retrograde cycles of two significant planets to overlap, and their combined influence will be intense. These retrogrades serve as a powerful reminder to slow down and turn inward.

During the latter part of the month, the universe will push us out of our comfort zones. This tough love from the planets acts as preparation for the transformative year ahead. Happening in Capricorn and Aquarius, two Saturn-ruled signs, this period will deeply transform our attitude towards success, career, leadership, and material possessions.

Three Lunar Events: Embrace Change and Emotional Release

January brings not two, but three lunations, making it an exceptional month for celestial events. The first lunation arrives on Sunday, January 2, with the luminaries forming a trine with Uranus in Taurus. This connection offers a unique opportunity to break free from old habits and set inspiring intentions for the year ahead, even with Venus in retrograde.

The second lunation takes place on Monday, January 17, and it is an emotionally charged full moon in Cancer. Ruled by the moon itself, this lunation will be directly opposite Pluto, bringing repressed emotions to the surface. It's an invitation to fully experience and acknowledge your feelings.

During this time, Uranus, the planet of freedom and surprises, will awaken from its five-month retrograde as the sun enters Aquarius. Embrace the changes, endings, and grand finales that Uranus brings. The more open we are to change during this period, the more we will thrive in the year ahead.

The third and final lunation of the month occurs on Monday, January 31, marking the beginning of Chinese New Year and the end of Mercury retrograde. As this event is also ruled by Uranus, it signifies a fresh start and an opportunity to leave the past behind.

Destiny Knocks: Shifting Towards Tangible Experiences

The most exciting astrological event in January is the shift of the Lunar Nodes of Destiny. This significant change occurs every eighteen months. For the past year and a half, the cosmos has been focused on evolution through the mental signs of Gemini and Sagittarius.

Now, as the Lunar Nodes move into Taurus and Scorpio, the collective's attention shifts towards more tangible aspects of life, such as food, security, material possessions, and experiencing life through the senses. Particularly noteworthy is the North Node's conjunction with Uranus and square to Saturn throughout the year.

This activation of the Saturn-Uranus square will accelerate change even further, revealing the impact of Uranus's transformative energy. While its influence intensifies in the coming months, we will begin seeing signs of its manifestation starting in mid-January.
