January 2022 Overview

Rededicate to Your Mission

It’s the new year, and time to decide on what you will dedicate to your next 12 months. Will you keep going at what you loved last year and innovate your approach? Or will you change course and spark inspiration?

Whichever you choose, the choices you make today create your future.


2022 is just peeking over the horizon. Your vision is getting clearer of what you want to bring in according to your new values.

2021 was too much. You’ve left so much behind so you could make space for your new values that include self love, emotional well being, health, rest, and intuition.

Now you choose.

You choose your revised mission.

You commit to living up to this revision with responsibility.

You dedicate yourself to this mission, but not by overworking.

You dedicate yourself by first believing that you are worthy to receive with ease and flow.

You believe that you can Work without trying too hard. With just the right amount of effort and the right amount of restoration.

“She believed she could, so she did.” – Unknown

You’ve seen this internet meme many times. This is your mantra for January where you are given a fresh slate.

With the energy ripe with possibility, don’t get stuck in the details of a specific intention. Expand yourself into possibility.

What is possible for you in your life and business when you believe?

To believe is the first step before dedicating yourself to your mission. What do you need to believe in yourself and your mission?

In this first month of 2022, your seeds stretch out of the darkness of the soil and reach for the sun. The seedling doesn’t work hard to reach up. It doesn’t strive or try. It believes the sun is there, and it can feel its warmth and hear its call. It believes it is time to grow so it does – with ease and flow.

As you look across the horizon desiring to see what’s ahead, how will you decide to grow? What new belief in yourself will be that warmth of the sun calling your mission forward?

I believe this is your time to work with ease and impact, in harmony with the cosmos and in active participation with the communities you build with your business.

I believe your Work as an entrepreneur and changemaker is important and part of your Spiritual journey, as you step into your worthiness, your expertise, and your leadership.

It’s time to dedicate yourself to you.

This month we see:

How to use these cosmic energies:

  • For larger shifts, you’ll feel the energy a week leading up to and away from.

To personalize energies:

  • With conjunctions/meetings or lunar activations, look to the degree of the activation and find where that degree lives on your natal chart.
  • Your astrological house in which the degree occurs is where in your business or life more information is available for that cosmic shift.

Week of January 1+ 2 – 8, 2022

January 1, 2022

It’s a new dawn

You have a refreshed vision, a new perspective and support from the cosmos to accomplish your goals.

Capture the energy of this fresh New Year’s day into the upcoming year.

Sun Capricorn trine Uranus Rx Taurus 10°

1:50 AM PT | 4:50 AM ET

What new vision of what you will accomplish in your business is now clear to you?

For a passing day, this harmonious and innovative energy is an auspicious start to 2022.

Mercury enters Aquarius

11:10 PM PT | 2:10 AM + 1 ET

What new perspectives do you want to give voice to?

Now through January 25, 2022, Mercury will spend time in free thinking Aquarius before heading back into goal-oriented Capricorn during the upcoming retrograde. Mercury loves being in Aquarius as it gets to think about the future and gets to use its quicksilver quickness to experiment with new ideas. The upcoming Mercury Rx will show you what of these new ideas will be practical in helping you accomplish your goals.

January 2, 2022

New Moon in Capricorn 12°

10:33 AM PT | 1:33 PM ET

Today I plant the seeds to redefine success and my ultimate mission in my business and Work.

It’s the first New Moon of 2022! You’ve been planning, setting your resolutions, and marking your goals. What if you were to remove all the specificity and details of your plans, strategies and tasks? You’d be left with an intention. An open, expansive intention. An intention is an open invitation to the Universe for something present and expansive with surprises that can exceed your expectations, while goals are binary and limited. Open up to an intention. Reframe a money goal such as, “earn $10k a month” into an intention that asks to “easily and consistently receive $10k a month.” It’s subtle yet profound.

For the intention you set today, cast it for the Ultimate Mission you want to be responsible for in your business. Claim how you want to author your expertise and commit to being the change you want in the world.

  • What kind of expert do you want to be recognized as?
  • What past challenges are now your creative fuel?
  • What will be your mantra for 2022?

Intend now.

New Moon Capricorn House activations

The house that contains Capricorn 12° is the area of your business and Work that desires a fresh intention.

Today you plant the seeds to refine success according to your inner authority in my Work’s:

1H (maybe Capricorn Rising): Strategic and focused identity and leadership
2H (maybe Sagittarius Rising): Practical investments and pragmatic worthiness
3H (maybe Scorpio Rising): No-nonsense approach to marketing and communications
4H (maybe Libra Rising): Groundedness and emotional rootedness in my bones
5H (maybe Virgo Rising): Ability to create boundaries to bring in more passion and play
6H (maybe Leo Rising): Solid ways of maintaining healthy systems and routines
7H (maybe Cancer Rising): Collaborative partnerships with successful co creators
8H (maybe Gemini Rising): Deep healing and spiritual work as strategic growth tools
9H (maybe Taurus Rising): Dependable, steady expansion and purpose
10H (maybe Aries Rising): Ultimate mission in delivering my expertise
11H* (maybe Pisces Rising): Dreamy vibe that brings people together over a shared goal
12H (maybe Aquarius Rising): Changemaking that is dependent on my ability to restore from the bones out

* Important: Each year when you have an 11H activation, this intention sets the stage not only for this area of your Work but it’s an intention that sets you up for your entire next year’s harvest – the annual cycle unique to you that determines your times to work, create, and rest. When you have an 11H New Moon, set an intention based on what you want to harvest for the next calendar year based on what you have just harvested this last month. Was your harvest as productive as you wanted? Or do you need to make changes in your Work?

January 8, 2022

It’s a Saturday, but a big day in the cosmos with our second quarter moon in Aries and the midpoint of the Venus Retrograde. Like the sun, your radiant creativity is involved with these two aspects tying in both the Moon and Venus. Your emotions are galvanized, so you are absolutely certain how you want to feel to be motivated.

It’s time to take focused, aligned action on all the intentions you’ve set. One step forward, in the way you want.

Especially crystallizing for Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

Sun conjunct Venus Rx Capricorn 18°

4:48 PM PT | 7:48 PM ET

Re-valuing your powerful investments and co-creators

What do you see in your relationships revealed in full light?

We are at the midpoint of our Venus Retrograde cycle, where you’ve been pondering realigning your values, connections and relationship to money. Oooh, you’ve been feeling this cycle magnifying your deepest interpersonal and money relationships. It is now illuminated.

Look, don’t be afraid. Be curious, befriend.

The Venus Retrograde cycle asks you to realign your values, your connections, and your money. In Capricorn, she’ll make us go back and look at the values, people, and resources we need to build out our goals. Reflect and then go forth.

It’s through this illumination that now, over the next few weeks, you can make a plan for how you will mend any relationship gaps or galvanize the value you’ve already created for more potency.

Venus moves forward on January 29.

Mars Sagittarius 20° square Neptune Pisces 20°

1:43 PM PT | 4:34 PM ET

Magical creative vitality

For a few days leading up to and away, you feel a gentle power bubbling forth. Usually when Mars and Neptune meet, we channel our physical energy (Mars) into devotional and imaginative (Neptune) outlets. Move your body gently to integrate the inner heat and confidence.

On this Mars day, it’s a wonderful day to get moving on your to-do list. Especially those big projects where you need to do lots of visioning, and big thinking.

Especially activating for Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

January 14, 2022

Mercury Retrograde Begins Aquarius 10°

3:41 AM PT | 6:41 AM ET

Rethinking social impact

As Mercury stops on this one point of Aquarius 10°, be ready for all kinds of tech glitches, especially as both Mercury and Aquarius have to do with high tech.

Remember, you do not need to fear this cycle if you learn to work with the energy of resetting, redoing, rethinking, and reorganizing.

This is the Mercury Rx cycle where you get to rethink what kind of innovations you need in your Work to be able to focus on your expertise. You are seeing how your Work is making a difference in your World, and how your Work can further reverberate in harmony in your larger communities. You’ll reconsider how your past innovations have now created silver linings of opportunities.

Look at the area of your chart between Aquarius 10° – Capricorn 24°, as this is the area of your chart that will be highlighted three times. If you have planets or angles in this area of your chart, they will want to chime in on this retrograde cycle.

If you have big Saturn energy (Aquarius or Capricorn Sun, Moon or Rising or Saturn on your angles), you will see how you need to focus in your efforts to maximize your impact.

Mercury Rx Schedule:

  • 12/29/21 Enters shadow zone – Capricorn 24°
  • 1/14/22 Station retrograde – Aquarius 10°
  • 1/23/22 Midpoint combust – Aquarius 3°
  • 2/3/22 Station direct – Capricorn 24°
  • 2/24/22 Leaves shadow zone – Aquarius 10°

Astro Notes

Week of January 16 – 22, 2022

January 16, 2022

A powerful day of illumination, a new sense of duty

With the meeting of the Sun and Pluto, a once a year occurrence and Sun/Pluto facing off with the Moon to form our first Full Moon of 2022, we have new choices to make.

Sun and Pluto – a powerful duo in Capricorn – asks us to uncover a new sense of priority. And when paired with the Cancer moon, the illumination is more intense, more potent, more pressing, more determined.

The energy of the day is piercing, asking you to not just commit, but to use your emotional needs to show you the way. To commit is to make a decision, a choice. Choose your emotional needs first and foremost for the most potent and impactful sense of responsibility. Yes, put your emotional needs FIRST – that is your new sense of duty.

Sun conjunct Pluto Capricorn 26°

6:51 AM PT | 9:51 AM ET

A new obligation revealed

Full Moon Cancer 27°

3:48 PM PT | 6:48 PM ET

Celebrating your self care

It’s time to illuminate and celebrate all the ways you’ve been nurturing your body and heart — or not. A Cancer Moon is so potent and sensitive that often we forget that her tears are her power. This ultimate soft power is a primal need for emotional security and nourishment, and it is different for each one of us. But what is the same for all of us is that it’s time to prioritize these emotional needs, for they are non-negotiable when you’re doing the big and scary things to run a business.

Celebrate all the ways you’ve tended to your emotional needs, again remembering that these are necessities, not luxuries, that allow you to shine.

Illuminate all the ways you haven’t yet nourished yourself in this way. Release and let go of all the shoulds or can’ts that tell you that this deep love of self care is a waste of time/money or only for the weak.

Your rootedness in order to rise in your business is grounded in your loving self-care and emotional safety. Create this for yourself and make space to create it for others.

January 19, 2022

Sun enters Aquarius

6:39 PM PT | 9:39 PM ET

Renewing your social values for an equitable future

What change do you want to be in your community and society?

It’s Aquarius season! A time to create the future now. A time to renew your vision and philosophy of the future and share that with your larger communities. Your people will connect to you when you share your unique social values and the future you want to create. Do not underestimate the power of a shared dream of humanity. .

Both Mercury and Venus are still in retrograde, so you’ve already had much rethinking and revaluing. Now it is time to craft your movement!

During this season, may we all choose hope, change, equity, and social impact in our businesses.

For all the Aquarian Luminaries, the most free and innovative solar return (birthday) to you.

Week of January 23 – 29, 2022

Sun conjunct Mercury Rx Aquarius 3°

2:28 AM PT | 5:28 AM ET

Rethinking social impact – illumination

What new emotional understanding do you have about the future?

Mercury is in the heart of the Sun. Your mind and soul are aligned and fully illuminated at this midpoint of the Mercury Retrograde cycle. You are halfway done with this cycle, what do you now know? What new perspective and understanding do you have with all that may have gone awry since January 14, when Mercury reversed? You have an emotional understanding now of all that has happened and needs to change.

Mercury Rx Schedule:

  • 12/29/21 Enters shadow zone – Capricorn 24°
  • 1/14/22 Station retrograde – Aquarius 10°
  • 1/23/22 Midpoint combust – Aquarius 3°
  • 2/3/22 Station direct – Capricorn 24°
  • 2/24/22 Leaves shadow zone – Aquarius 10°

January 24, 2022

Mars enters Capricorn

7:05 PM PT | 10:05 PMET

Drive to persevere

What are you committing to through disciplined action?

Mars loves being in Capricorn and is exalted in this go-and-get-it sign. Now through March 7, it’s time to harness this willpower on the things that matter to you most. Pour this energy into accomplishing and mastering your expertise and impact.

If you have a natal Mars in Capricorn, you have a tremendous drive and focus. Be sure to direct your energy from a sense of self-responsibility, instead of perceived duty to others in your business.

If you have planets or angles in Capricorn, as Mars drives through, expect a boost of physical stamina activating your natal energies over the next 6 weeks.

January 25, 2022

4Q Moon in Scorpio

5:41 AM PT | 8:41 AM ET


What will you detox from today?

Deep restoration can be a radical act. To completely stop doing and to literally drop all your tasks so you can tune into yourself. To detox from all notifications and busyness. But this is what you need right now with the 4Q moon integration phase. If you take even 24 hours to regenerate, you will feel much more expansive and ready to take on even more of your purpose.

The last quarter moon phase is an integration phase in our lives and business. A time to cultivate all that we have learned and assess what we want to continue with and what we want to churn back into the earth as nourishment for the seeds we’ve planted.

Mercury Rx enters Capricorn

7:05 PM PT | 10:05 PM ET

Practical sustainable re-attunement

What strategic communications keep you on track for your goals?

Now through Valentine’s day February 14, Mercury will spend its time back in Capricorn, leaving Aquarius while in reverse direction. Back in mid December 2021, Mercury spent time in Capricorn asking you to get strategic about your messaging and sharing/teaching of information to prioritize keeping track of your goals. You’ve had some innovative perspectives come through since then, so now it’s time to weave in your new understanding into your communications strategy.

Pragmatically potent for late Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)

January 28, 2022

Mercury Rx conjunct Pluto Capricorn 26°

8:16 PM PT | 11:16 PM ET

Your words have power – part 2

What do you need to reiterate?

Look back a month ago to right before New Year’s eve. Mercury and Pluto met at this time. You had words for saying goodbye to 2021 and welcoming 2022. Now that we are a few weeks in, you have an addendum you want to add to your powerful declarations. What do you want to rewrite and reiterate? Your words are powerfully honest and transparent at this time. Choose wisely.

Especially compelling for late Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)

January 29, 2022

Venus Retrograde Capricorn 11° Station Direct

Reenvisioning Impactful Partnerships

Venus has now come to a complete stop and shifted gears forward. Over the last 6 weeks since December 19, Venus has given you a deep dive into reexamining your connections and resources you need to thrive.

Your values while Venus is in Capricorn focused in on how to thrive through achieving your goals, living up to your own responsibilities, and being the expert.

What has come up for you? What do you now know about your relationships? Your money, your values, and your investments? What do you now know about your responsibility and dedication to these values?

You now know what you need to change. Over the next month, as Venus traces forward over where she reversed, you’ll notice echoes of these themes that will give you the strategies on how to move things forward.

  • 11/18/21 Enters shadow zone – Capricorn 11°

New Moon in Aquarius 12°

9:46 PM PT | 12:46 AM + 1 ET

Rethinking Your Social Responsibility

Today I plant the seeds for my Work, in collaboration with my larger communities, to create a lasting difference in the world.

How do you want your Work to change the world?

Today you get to decide and declare how your Work is here to create equitable change and social impact. Your Work, when steeped in your social values, that you share from the rooftops, calls in your aligned communities and changemakers. It is a big ask to declare how you want to change the world, but you don’t have to have a massive impact to make a massive change in someone’s life.

You are being called to revolutionize the way you’ve been running your Business to be sure it aligns with your social values. You are being asked to give voice to your inner power. You are being asked to be the change.

Capricorn and Aquarius Luminaries, you are especially being called to bring forth social responsibility in your businesses.
