Monthly Horoscope: January 2022
You may feel that people around you mistrust you this week and that they feel you are being shady and mysterious. Perhaps, Capricorn, that‘s because you are, but does it really matter what they think? You have things to do and sort out and people to see, and you shouldn’t waste time and energy worrying about what others think. Get on with your own business and let people think what they will. It doesn’t have to affect you if you don’t let it.
Energy in your house is optimistic and positive this week and you’ll feel like things are falling into place and your path is opening up in front of you. This will lead you to have an overwhelming feeling of destiny calling and you’ll feel confident about what you’re doing and where you’re going. Others might be sceptical about this and try to pour cold water on how you feel, but it doesn’t matter what they think, this is your life.
Neptune in Pisces ends its time square with The Sun this week, leaving you with some wild and out there ideas popping into your head. While some of these ideas may be unrealistic, some of them could actually have potential and be worth exploring. You may feel exited and enthusiastic, but don’t act on anything right now, let these ideas bake for a while and think them over. This will take some careful planning so don’t try to rush it.
Venus leaves Aries in opposition with The Moon this week, bringing you the potential for feeling the pressure and for allowing yourself to get wound up and stressed. You have a lot going on right now, so some stress is inevitable, but you can lessen this by only concentrating on the things you can change, influence, and control. The things you can’t do anything about, you should let go of, as trying will only waste your time and energy.
You’ll have high emotions this week, Taurus, and you’ll need to work hard to keep a hold of yourself. Don’t speak without thinking and don’t say things you know will be contentious, your mouth can get you into a lot of trouble right now if you’re not careful. You also run the risk of saying something you are supposed to be keeping to yourself. Keep control until your emotions pass so you don’t say something you later regret.
There’s a lot of stress around in the energy over many houses this week, creating an atmosphere of pressure and tension, and you won’t come out unscathed. As it’s going to be fairly unavoidable, the best thing you can do is keep yourself as light hearted and carefree as possible. Go for a walk, treat yourself to something, and do small things to lift the atmosphere and energy around you. It might not seem like much, but it will make a difference.
Mars enters Cancer this week in trine with The Moon. This will create powerful energy in your house as these two strong planets interact, giving you solid intuition and instincts. You’ll be working fast with this energy and you’ll be able to make quick decisions based on your gut feelings. Others won’t be able to do this like you can right now, so make allowances and help them to catch up. Share your information, intuition, and your feelings.
You need to ask someone a favour this week, but you’ll feel resistance to this initially and you’ll hesitate about putting yourself forward like that. This is because you feel that asking for help makes you seem weak and makes you vulnerable, and you may even be embarrassed, but your friends won’t see it this way. It actually makes you stronger to recognise when you need help, and you’ll be showing trust in those close to you, bringing you a deeper bond.
You need to take care of yourself this week, Virgo, and pay particular attention to your health. This could be your physical health, mental or emotional, spiritual, or all four! Locate which area you may be suffering a dip in and look at ways to bring yourself back to full health. Don’t ignore this or you could end up with a nasty wake-up call. It’s better to prevent a slide in your well-being than to attempt to cure it.
You need space to throw your arms open wide and breathe deeply this week, and to let your spirit reach high and soar! In other words, it’s a time for looking to the future, feeling the optimism that’s in your heart, and reaching for your hopes and dreams. Communication is important right now and you should let others know what your plans are and where you’re heading in your life. With their backing and help you can go far.
The Moon enters Scorpio this week in opposition with Venus and in trine with Mars. All this activity between powerful planets in your house will make you feel over emotional and vulnerable. You’re better off spending time alone or keeping yourself to yourself as much as possible to bring yourself some calm and help you relax. You will need a shoulder to lean on later in the week, so go to a close and trusted friend and talk over how you feel.
Someone around you will misunderstand a situation or something you’ve said this week, but try not to let frustration bubble over in you about this. Stay level headed and don’t take it personally. You have to deal with this person and with this issue, so do so as calmly and rationally as you can. Your best way forward is to work with this person, not against them, to help them understand things better and see clearly, and not to see this as a fight.
