We have quite a big week ahead. Venus and Mercury are going direct, making all planets direct until April 29. The New Moon is in Aquarius triggering the Saturn – Uranus square that dominated 2021. The Sun is also going to trigger the Saturn – Uranus square. Saturn and Uranus are going to be less than 1° from an exact square this year, so we are not done with this energy.
January 29, 2022: Venus goes direct at 11° Capricorn 05’. Venus will not visit this territory again for quite some time. Now that Venus is moving forward, what values are you taking forward with you? What has this Venus Retrograde in Capricorn been unearthing within you? Have you decided which mountains are worth climbing? Venus will not exit its shadow until March 2, so there is still reassessing and reevaluating to do.
New Venus Portal: Venus conjunct Moon at 11° Capricorn. This is a New Venus Portal of the new 19-month Venus in Capricorn Cycle that began on January 8 when Venus conjuncted the Sun at 18° Capricorn 43’. How have you emotionally matured over these past few months as Venus and the Moon have danced in Capricorn (with the Moon in Cancer for the Peak Venus Portals)? Were old, conditioned, limiting ways of relating and connecting illuminated for you so that you might change them? Were you stretched to your emotional limits so that you could achieve emotional maturity and heart coherence?
January 30, 2022: Sun at 10° Aquarius square Uranus at 10° Taurus. This is revolutionary energy on steroids! The Sun in the sign that Uranus resonates with the most square to Uranus, the Great Awakener itself. This is also triggering the Saturn – Uranus square that has been in effect since 2021. The Sun is illuminating the tension. Tension can be challenging, but it can be used as a catalyst for growth and change. That is the ultimate goal of Uranus: to awaken you into more freedom and authenticity. What can you do now to be more radically yourself? What needs to change within you and in your life so that you can grow, be more aligned with your soul values?
January 31, 2022: New Moon at 12° Aquarius 20’. This New Moon is conjunct Saturn and square to Uranus. Venus has recently stationed direct and Mercury is still conjunct Pluto, getting ready to turn direct. This energy is demanding transformation in order to move forward into the future. There are things that must be let go, and you will know what they are as Pluto has been bringing them up from the depths for you. If you have been doing your shadow work, you are feeling a sense of excitement and anticipation as the energies begin to move. If you have not been using these energies, you might feel like life is happening to you. Either way, it is time to move forward. Whatever the Saturn – Uranus square was bringing up for you last year, this is the year where you begin to manifest those changes.
February 3, 2022: Mercury goes direct at 24° Capricorn 23’. Mercury was the last retrograde planet, and now that it is direct, it is all systems go as all of the planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) are direct until April 29. Mercury will exit its shadow on February 24, so until then, we still have an opportunity to rethink our creativity. With Venus retrograde in Capricorn, and Mercury retrograde in Aquarius and Capricorn, and each of those planets coming into conjunction with Pluto three times, it has been an opportunity for us to align our minds (Mercury) and hearts (Venus) in what we manifest into the world. When we manifest with heart wisdom, we can truly build a world of cooperation, common humanity, and quantum creativity (Aquarius).
February 4, 2022: Sun conjunct Saturn at 15° Aquarius. The Sun recently triggered the Saturn – Uranus square on January 30 when it squared Uranus in Taurus. Now it is conjunct Saturn, the planet that demands accountability and responsibility from us. Saturn gets a bad rap in my opinion. Saturn, to me, is a teacher of limitation. When you understand that you have a limited amount of time, attention, energy, and resources, you learn authority and mastery. If you want to be masterful, achieve and accomplish anything in the physical world, you have to be committed, dedicated, focused. You necessarily limit yourself as you choose something to concentrate on. As you choose one possibility, other possibilities cannot occur. That is how physical reality works. So the Sun and Saturn together in Aquarius will illuminate the choices you have made. What have you been focused on? What are you dedicated to? How are you building your future? The Saturn – Uranus square is asking each of us to be accountable and responsible for our authentic self-expression, because being you is the way you contribute to the good of all of humanity. We are each an integral and necessary strand in the Web of Life, and when you be and do you as fully as possible, the whole world benefits.
