Do you crave grounded energy, motivation, and more committed intimacy in relationships? Then you’re in for a treat this week because we’ve got three major transits that you need to know about right now.
First up, you’ll likely be excited to start your week with ambitious Mars moving into responsible Capricorn on January 24th. Mars is the warrior planet, and with its assertive energy meeting up with the grounded energy of Capricorn, you’re sure to feel a decided pep in your step.
While this isn’t a great time to start new projects with Mercury in retrograde, it’s a great time to wrap up old tasks and focus on chores within the home.
Your home may need even more attention on January 25th when Mercury, currently retrograde, moves into Capricorn. Once the focus shifts to those Capricorn themes, your home may feel disorderly or chaotic.
It’s best to prepare yourself by decluttering, organizing, and taking care of chores that need your attention before things start to feel overwhelming.
Finally, in keeping with the Capricorn-themed energy this week, Venus – previously retrograde – goes direct in this Earthy sign.
Venus, the planet of love and relationships, made it difficult to get along and understand one another while it was retrograde. But with Venus direct in Capricorn, this transit encourages more practical conversations, intimacy, and commitment.
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.
What Can You Expect for the Week of January 24 – 30, 2022?
Get Grounded & Stay Connected
All of this Capricorn energy is great for motivation, especially when Mars swings by with its assertive force. But that same energy can cause us to forget about the upkeep of our interpersonal relationships.
Take advantage of the ambition and drive, but don’t forget to balance that equally among your career, your relationships, and your home.
Focus on balancing the energy within your own body through techniques like yoga, meditation, and positive affirmations. Balancing these aspects of your life is much easier when your own energy is centered and harmonized.
