Your Weekly Astrology Forecast: January 2 – 8, 2023

Are you ready for a week of exciting yet balanced energy? Let’s look at the stars and what they have to bring our way this week. 

There are two major transits this week, and while on their own, they may feel overwhelming, when connected, they bring us a healthy balance of energies. Let’s start with Venus – the planet of love, beauty, and relationships – moving her way into airy and revolutionary Aquarius on January 2nd. 

Venus in Aquarius is an adventurous transit that urges you to consider your own freedom more than the needs of those around you. While you may feel slightly selfish during this transit, it provides the perfect opportunity to learn how to take better care of yourself and your needs. 

And then, on January 6th, we’ll experience a Full Moon in the Water sign, Cancer. A Full Moon is already a time of deep emotions – some that may have even been hidden until this lunar phase. In Cancer, these feelings are amplified and more intense. 

The Full Moon is a time to release feelings, situations, or relationships that no longer serve you or help you move forward. The illuminating properties of this lunar phase will help you realize exactly what might be standing in your way – and it’s your job to take note.

This week is all about finding your freedom and individuality within relationships while also allowing yourself to let go of anything that may be holding you back. 

January 2 – January 8 is a Week to Find Freedom in Every Area of Your Life

Venus in Aquarius urges you to embrace your individuality, especially within relationships, while Venus in Aquarius asks you to acknowledge and embrace your eccentricities. This is a week to embrace who you are and spend time admiring that person!

Are you ready to take note of how far you’ve come and embrace your unique personality? This week, you’re asked to admire who you are and move towards a path that helps you fully become who you were meant to be.
