OOB MARS ENTERS CAPRICORN ON 24 JANUARY 2022
The marathon runner...
Mars is still OOB as it enters Capricorn, the sign of its exaltation, it will remain OOB until the 10th of February when it will be at 12° 43’ Capricorn.
LUNAR NODES CHANGE SIGNS ON 18th JANUARY 2022
The transiting nodes are reality checks on our soul path…
On January 18th, the Lunar Nodes will ingress the Taurus/Scorpio axis after having been in the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity since May 2020. So, the modality will change from Mutable (Air-Fire) to Fixed (Earth-Water).
OOB FULL MOON IN CANCER ON 17-18 JANUARY 2022
On the 17-18 February (depending on where you find yourself in the world) there will be an OOB Full Moon at 27°50’ Cancer (antiscion 2°10’ Gemini), nurturing qualities could be at their best or, on the contrary, at their worst. The Full Moon will occur only a few hours before the direct station of Uranus and the entrance of the Lunar nodes on the Taurus-Scorpio axis.
URANUS STATIONS DIRECT ON 18 JANUARY 2022
The road ahead seems quite bumpy….
Uranus ends its yearly, five-month retrograde period at 10°49’ Taurus (antiscion 19°11’ Leo) on the 18th January and finds itself immediately in a quincunx aspect with Mars (25°49’ Sag- 10°49’ Taurus) a friction that needs to be acted upon with enthusiastic Mars tending towards a Sagittarian over-achievement and Uranus wanting to enjoy life within the limits imposed by Taurus.
MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN AQUARIUS 14 JANUARY 2022
Time to rethink plans on a more humanitarian basis
Mercury makes its first retrograde station of the year at 10°20’ Aquarius (antiscion 19°40 Scorpio), over the last 12 days (since it entered Aquarius) we should have gotten used to this rather aloof, Air sign Mercury. The retrograde period will end on 3rd February when Mercury will be at 24°22’ Capricorn (antiscion 05°38’ Sagittarius).
NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN ON 2 JANUARY 2022
The New Moon, which is also OOB, will occur at 12°20’ Capricorn (antiscion 17°40’ Sagittarius). This is the 3rd consecutive New Moon at 12° of the relative signs.
Capricorn is a Cardinal, Earth sign, so persons with planets or angles of the natal chart at 09-15° of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra will be particularly affected by this lunation.
MERCURY ENTERS AQUARIUS
Abstract thinking or unusual facts?
Mercury will stay in Aquarius until the 9th of March due to its retrograde period which starts January 14th at 10°20’ (it will re-enter Capricorn also during this time).
JUPITER ENTERS PISCES
Jupiter enters its night-time sign just a few days before the New Year dawns. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces and in later times Neptune was also assigned as co-ruler of Pisces. Jupiter is the truth-seeker, it uses knowledge to expand its horizon, both on an earthly and spiritual level. Neptune wants to understand the unknown, the untouchable, the unfathomable.
This will be the last of three upper waning squares between the two planets and it will occur at 11°05’ with Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus retrograde in Taurus (antiscion points respectively 18°55’ Scorpio and Leo.
VENUS STATIONS RETROGRADE 19 DECEMBER 2021
Just six hours after the Full Moon in Gemini, Venus stations retrograde in Capricorn at 26°29’ (antisicion 3°31 Sagittarius), its retrograde period ends on the 28th January 2022 at 11°05’ Capricorn.
Venus in Capricorn is “proper” as well as ambitious and perhaps even calculating. Now it’s time to re-address our Venus traits and those of the house in our chart where Venus is transiting and also those houses ruled by Venus.
