Are you ready for emotional release, surprises, and transformational, eccentric energy to take over? Then get cozy and prepare to let your emotional tension go this week.We have three transits occurring this week that will shift our energetic perception and provide certain possibilities for change.
To start with, we have a Full Moon in the sensitive and dreamy sign of Cancer on January 17th. This lunar phase represents the ending of a lunar cycle. It encourages you to release any emotional upsets, wounds, behaviors, or toxic relationships and situations that are no longer serving you.
It’s also a time when the Moon is most illuminated, so expect hidden information and buried emotions to be revealed now.
On January 18th, Uranus – the planet of change, originality, and spontaneity – goes direct in the sign of Taurus. When Uranus was retrograde, its powers of transformation and surprise were muted. Still, as it begins to move direct, it brings both exciting new ideas and situations, as well as potentially upsetting changes.
Try to remember that these changes make room for your most desired life!
Finally, on January 19th, the Sun moves into independent, futuristic, humanitarian Aquarius, marking the beginning of Aquarius season. As an Air sign, Aquarius encourages intellectual thought, group activities, and a focus on communication.
Aquarius season is a fantastic time to think outside of the box, step out of your comfort zone, and express yourself creatively and authentically.
What Can You Expect for the Week of January 17 – 23?
Release, Center, & Shift Your Thinking
The Full Moon provides the perfect opportunity to release the emotions or upsets of the past lunar cycle – make a list of everything you feel no longer serves you and allow the power of the Full Moon to take these things off your shoulders.
And while Uranus direct may foster changes you don’t quite feel ready for, centering your spirit and energy will help you feel prepared for transformation.
Aquarius season gives you the perfect opportunity to foster authenticity, experience exciting new ideas, and focus your energy on how to create your ideal future. With the right bold energy and individuality, this is the perfect season to be your most genuine self!
If you’re not sure how to connect to your individuality, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to connect to these energies using the power of your birth chart.
