Astrology Transits January 2022 —Change and Transformation

Sometimes we can only find our true direction when we let the wind of change carry us. — Mimi Novic

As we bravely set out into a fresh new year, we can all feel the winds of change blowing. We can feel deep in our bones that something is happening.  We can’t yet figure out what it is; or what it means for us. We may be feeling a little agitated, a little worried, or a little excited.  Most likely, we are feeling all of those emotions at various times or even all at once.

The cosmic energy this year has strong elements of uncertainty, revolution, power struggles and conflicts. But it also has exceptionally loving, spiritual and creative overtones as evidenced by Jupiter moving into Pisces and then moving to conjunct Neptune on April 11, 2022.

January 2022, likewise, opens with an exciting Sun trine Uranus transit. This transit is custom made for shaking off the doldrums. It will energize you to think and act in an innovative way and to bring the conditions you wish to see in 2022.

Venus and Mars will be tag-teaming each other all year and lining up with Pluto as they do so. Pluto rules the masses and change on a global level.  Venus and Mars are personal planets that bring changes in personal consciousness.  Altogether, we are challenged to roll with the global changes in a way that upgrades our personal awareness and responsiveness.

January 1: Sun Trine Uranus at 11 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus. Sun trine Uranus is such an appropriate transit to begin the new year. When the Sun is trine Uranus, we feel a sense of excitement about making changes. As you begin new habits this bright and shiny new year, think of ways to shake things up and use the inventive Uranus energy to bring the changes you want.

January 2:  New Moon at 12 Degrees Capricorn.  Once the New Year celebrations are over, the Capricorn New Moon on the 2nd brings the need to set objectives and intentions for the year. Jupiter at zero degrees Pisces at the same time, adds optimism, expansion and imagination to give those intentions extra power and “oomph.” The key takeaway is to think big and to use your imagination (Jupiter in Pisces), while carefully planning the steps to achieve your goals (New Moon in Capricorn).

January 8: Retrograde Venus Conjunct Sun at 18 Degrees Capricorn. Venus conjunct the Sun fires up your creativity and highlights your relationship to yourself and to others. This is a great time to socialize and to make business connections. Use Venus retrograde in Capricorn until January 28 to reassess your wants, needs and values. Because year 2022 is a time of great change, it is important to know what you want and/or need, so you can focus wisely.

January 10: Sun Sextile Neptune at 21 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces. Your creativity, imagination and intuition are through the roof under this easy connection of the Sun sextile Neptune.  Just for this brief time, let your rational mind take a back seat and let your intuitive mind show you the possibilities of the new year. Mars square Neptune the next day isn’t so easy. A part of you wants to escape and chill out, while another part of you wants to get going and make something happen. Enjoy the calm and blissful feeling of Sun sextile Neptune while you can.

January 11: Mars Square Neptune 21 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. Conserve your energy and be nice to yourself when Mars is square Neptune. Your physical energy may be low and self-doubt isn’t far away. This is not the time to give in or to give up but, rather, to confront your fears and to rest up before you re-enter the fray.

January 14:  Mercury Stations Retrograde at 10 Degrees Aquarius. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius moves back into Capricorn on January 26, before turning direct on February 4 at 24 degrees Capricorn. Planets become stronger during their retrograde periods due to their nearness to the earth. Though all of the things you may have heard about retrograde Mercury may apply, there is a blessing to Mercury retrograde. Mercury retrograde slows down communication and gives you a chance to regroup and revise.  Look over plans and documents and correct any mistakes.

January 16: Sun Conjunct Pluto at 26 Degrees Capricorn. Sun conjunct Pluto can bring up all kinds of hidden emotions, stories and regrets. At the same time, retrograde Mercury sesquiquadrate Mars (135 degrees apart) in Aquarius/Sagittarius has you on edge and irritable. Avoid arguments and conflicts during this testy time. Things could blow up all out of proportion to the original conflict.

January 17:  Full Moon at 27 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn. This promises to be a very emotional Full Moon. The Cancer Full Moon opposes the Sun in Capricorn setting up a conflict between the emotions (Moon in Cancer) and the head (Sun conjunct Pluto in Capricorn). My best advice is to allow yourself to feel what you feel (Moon in Cancer), but to let your rational mind bring you back to reality (Sun in Capricorn).

January 18: Uranus Stations Direct at 11 Degrees Taurus. As Uranus stations direct in Taurus, it will begin to move closer to a square aspect with Saturn.  We will continue to feel the dynamic tension between the old (Saturn) and the new (Uranus), limitation (Saturn) and progress (Uranus), that we felt all during 2021.

January 19:  Sun Enters Aquarius.

January 24: Mars Enters Capricorn. Mars entering Capricorn amps up business and career matters. Apply for that dream job, start projects and/or advertise your product under Mars’ energizing rays.

January 29: Venus Stations Direct at 11 Degrees Capricorn.

January 30:  Sun Square Uranus at 11 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. Its best not to make concrete plans when the Sun is square Uranus as anything can happen under this unfettered aspect. Instead, let your ideas flow and brainstorm with others. You may gain

some absolutely astounding ideas under this “light bulb” aspect.

I will be presenting a summary of the planetary energy and what to expect in the year 2022 at the Spiritual Center in Carbondale, Colorado on January 9, 2022, at 10:00 am.:

Light and dark in a time of major long-term change:  A look at the United States Pluto return and Jupiter’s conjunction with Neptune. On February 22, 2022 after a 248+ year journey around the Zodiac, transiting Pluto lines up exactly with Pluto in the US birth chart.  A lot of what we have been experiencing as a country, and as an individual resident of planet Earth, will be held up for scrutiny and transformation over the next year and one-half. This is harsh energy, but Jupiter entering Pisces and connecting with Neptune shows the way forward through using our capacity for compassion, heightened intuition, and imagination.

If you are in the area, I would love to see you there. No charge to attend, but a donation to A Spiritual Center would be appreciated.




I will be teaching a beginning astrology class via Zoom starting on February 17, 2022 for eight weeks. I am considering 3:00 pm MST until 4:30 MST each week, but am open to adjusting those times.  Let me know if you are interested and, if so, what times would work the best for you.
