Read Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for January 9 – 15, 2023

How do you feel about a week of determination, action, and letting go? If that sounds good to you, keep reading to find out what the stars are bringing your way this week!

Two transits are bringing the majority of the astrological energy this week, starting with Mars – the planet of willpower, action, and ambition – moving direct in the sign of Gemini on January 12th. Mars has been retrograde in Gemini since October 30th of 2022, slowing us down and making it harder to motivate ourselves. 

When Mars starts moving direct once again, we feel more momentum, more drive, and more courage to take action and go after the things we want. In airy Gemini, you may feel pulled in many directions – you’re now urged to try new things and learn new techniques for your craft. 

Take advantage of this energy by focusing on the things you want to manifest and following your gut instincts when it comes to attracting those things – and be sure to keep an open mind and allow it to absorb lots of interesting, new information now.

Next up is the Last Quarter Moon in fellow Air sign, Libra – a lunar transit that is all about letting go as we continue to release that which no longer serves us from the previous Full Moon. If there are any crumbs of toxic relationships, situations, or habits that are preventing you from following your true path, it’s time to let those things go with love and in light. 

January 9 – January 15 is a Week to Get Motivated & Liberate Yourself

Mars direct in Gemini is here to give you a boost of energy, a dash of bravery, and an inquisitive mind. It’s time to start thinking about the desires you’re ready to go after. (Remember to wait until Mercury goes direct again to start acting on your plans!) The Last Quarter Moon in Libra urges you to finally let go of anything standing in your way that you might still be clinging to.

Are you ready to focus on your dreams and let go of the things blocking you from your path?
