Hello 2024! We're all collectively letting out a breath with the ending of the old year and the end of Mercury retrograde. This January will be a mix of work and play as both lively Sagittarius and intense Capricorn feature very strongly this month. If you aren't careful, you could get easily worn out by the big energy from these two signs. But it's also a chance to connect more deeply with the things that feed your inner fire and use that to create plans that will stay solid for the months to come. 

Sagittarius's influence on Mercury, Venus, and Mars at the start of the year may have you wondering about the big questions in front of you. Spend some time to really consider them. When the three of them meet up again in Capricorn at the end of the month, you'll be better able to take advantage of both Capricorn discipline and the Sun in Aquarius's out-of-the-box, forward thinking.  

Be ready to work hard and play hard this January. As always, a healthy balance is key.

Love Aspects as Influenced by the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Sun Signs Transits

Full Wolf Moon in Leo – (January 25, 2024) 

The Moon in Leo brings out our desire to shine. Don't accept anything less than the love you know you deserve. Draw in people and situations that will match your energy and bask in the glow of shared passion.

Moon Ritual - Carry sunstone or tiger's eye with you. Charge it with the intention of being bold enough to dream big and claim the good things in your life that cross your path.

Mercury in Sagittarius (January 1 - January 13) 

On January 1st, Mercury concludes its retrograde phase in Sagittarius, giving us all a much needed refresh on our communication channels, ensuring clarity and eliminating any miscommunication. Having Venus alongside it adds a little more warmth until the 13th, while Mars adds a touch of fire until the third. You may feel a strong pull to explore ideas that have been close to your heart for awhile, with Mars energy giving you a small push to go for it.

Mercury in Capricorn (January 14 – February 4)

The big ideas from earlier in the month take on a grounded tone, resembling a thoughtful discussion over a cup of well-brewed coffee. Consider Mercury in Capricorn as a celestial organizer, assisting us in structuring our thoughts with a touch of practical wisdom. This is when you will want to break out your journal or your vision board to give some structure to your dreams. Keep the idealism from Mercury's passage in Sagittarius but check in with Capricornian pragmatism to create a realistic roadmap to take you where you want to go.

Venus in Sagittarius (January 1 - January 22)

Love takes on an adventurous flair during this transit. Venus in Sagittarius encourages you to explore new relationships or infuse existing ones with a sense of spontaneity. This celestial energy sparks a fiery passion for life and love, urging you to embrace your desires with an open heart and a twinkle in your eye. If you've been longing to try to something a little different and fun, now is the time to go for it.

Venus in Capricorn (January 23 – February 15)

After the heady adventurousness of Sagittarius, love takes on a more grounded and practical tone starting on the 23rd. Don't regret any of the fun you had earlier this month, but do use those experiences to inform what you really want in a long-term love. It's time to appreciate the beauty of stability, loyalty, and shared goals. Venus in Capricorn invites you to savor the beauty of lasting connections and the joy found in building something solid with someone special. 

Mars in Sagittarius (January 1 - January 3)

This energetic phase ignites a spirited flame in our pursuits, urging us to conquer new horizons. Mars in Sagittarius inspires you to embrace challenges with a fearless and adventurous spirit. This fiery energy propels us to set ambitious goals, charging into the world with enthusiasm and zest. This is the time to take tangible action in the pursuit of your dreams, be they personal or professional, with the fiery arrow of Sagittarian determination.

Mars in Capricorn (January 4 - February 12)

While the adventurous spirit of Sagittarius may fade, Mars in Capricorn ensures that our actions are deliberate, well-organized, and aimed at achieving lasting accomplishments. This transition brings a grounded energy to our endeavors, adding in healthy doses of discipline and determination. The movements towards your goals may seem smaller or less flashy than the moves made when Mars was in Sagittarius. But it's those small but careful actions done daily that will get you across the finish line.
