Weekly Astrology Forecast: January 10 – 16, 2022

You’d probably like to start off this first month of the new year on the right foot, right? Then it’s time to prepare yourself for a transit that has the potential to make you feel more frustrated than ever or help you learn more about yourself than you have before – and it all depends on whether you know how to take advantage of this transit’s energy.

That transit is the infamous Mercury retrograde period wherein Mercury’s movement slows down so much that it looks as though it’s actually moving backward. 

Mercury is the planet of communication, information, and quick travel – and as you may imagine, it’s not too happy about the slow movement it experiences during this period.

This transit lasts for about three weeks, and this time around, we’re experiencing it from January 14th to February 3rd, and it’s taking place in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is a sign connected to relationships and communication, two areas where Mercury retrograde may create misunderstandings.

Travel, interactions with technology, and even mundane interactions may become frustrating or tense.

But this is also a fantastic time to revisit the past, reevaluate your current goals, or reconnect with friends with whom you’ve lost touch. This can also be an excellent time for learning more about your communication style and how to improve your connections with others!

What Can You Expect for the Week of January 10 – 16?

Focus on Patience, Understanding, & Compassion

While Mercury in retrograde can be a pain in the neck, it can also act as a catalyst for growth, better communication, and deeper bonds. The most important thing to remember right now is that your self-care routine – meditation, yoga, astrology, Tarot, exercise – is crucial to maintain the balance and patience you need.

Foster patience and understanding within yourself to make this the smoothest Mercury retrograde period ever. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn breathing exercises and connect with crystals that can help you maintain composure.

If you’re not sure how to foster patience and understanding, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to connect to these energies using the power of your birth chart.
