Does a week of smoother sailing, creative self-expression, and celestial manifestation sound like a good time to you? Then let yourself start to get excited because the stars are bringing major positive changes this week!

Three big transits are taking place this week, all of which are sure to bring a smile to your face and positive energy to your spirit. First, let’s start with the transit likely to induce a collective sigh of relief within all of us – Mercury is moving direct again on January 18th, this time in earthy Capricorn!

As Mercury slowly regains its average speed, you’ll begin to feel the pressure lifting, the challenges of Mercury retrograde fading in the distance, and the relief of once again being able to make big decisions and sign contracts (once it’s back to its standard pace, of course). Mercury in the sign of Capricorn means that our ideas and conversations are likely to be more grounded and logic-based.

Next up, on January 20th, the Sun moves into intellectual, eccentric Aquarius, marking the beginning of Aquarius season! This Air sign is independent, authentic, socially oriented, and revolutionary. You can expect creative energy, flashes of insight, and more luck and insight than ever when brainstorming in groups of like-minded people.

Aquarius season urges you to be your most authentic self to embrace your eccentricities – this is not the time to wear a mask or hide who you truly are. Practice plenty of self-care to ensure you’re sharing your most genuine self with the world.

Finally, we’ve got the perfect opportunity for manifestation and focusing on the future with 2023’s first New Moon, also in innovative Aquarius! Focus on the future you most want to create, practice a New Moon manifestation ritual, and let the inventive Aquarius energy give you plenty of creative ideas about achieving your goals.

January 16 – January 22 is a Week to Get Back on Track, Embrace Your Personality, & Manifest Your Future

Mercury direct gives us a break from the frustrations of Mercury retrograde, allowing you to get yourself back on track. Futuristic Aquarius season encourages you to embrace your individuality and pay attention to any creative ideas you have during this time. And the New Moon in Aquarius is the perfect time to dream up your ideal future and begin manifesting it. 

Are you ready to get back on your path, move forward as your most authentic self, and bring your dreams into reality?
