An Astrological Overview of January 2024

An Astrological Overview of January 2024

As the editor of the Astrology Arizona newsletter, I compose an overview of each month. Today we take a look at the primary factors for the month.

The second week of January features Mercury square Neptune, Sun trine Uranus, Mars sextile Saturn, Venus trine Chiron, Mars trine Jupiter, and Venus quincunx Uranus. Be clear about what roles you are and aren’t playing, be clear about the terms and conditions if you’re signing anything, and go slow in an organized way. This should be a very favorable and productive week, though Venus quincunx Uranus requires adjustments on the basis of unexpected or unusual developments. This week will be exceptionally harmonizing for all planets we have in any of the Earth and Water signs.

That week also sees Mercury entering Capricorn, bringing that energy to planets or points we have in Gemini or Virgo. As Mercury is speeding up, many things should unfold quickly, and we should be able to get a lot done during that time. Once Mercury enters Capricorn, it will then echo all the aspects Mars made in early Capricorn.

The second week also brings the New Moon at 21 Capricorn, facilitating a new group learning period, where we will be given opportunities to demonstrate cooperation, give and take, “planned group behavior,” and a need to fully surrender to some form of service. As that New Moon is trine Uranus, sextile Neptune, and conjunct Pluto, we begin a new period of purifications and transformations, but no fear! Mars trine Jupiter should open a wide view of practical possibilities of future service.

The Moon transits between Sagittarius and Pisces the second week of January. Moon in Sagittarius will bring cross currents while opening wider views on January 8 and 9, while Moon in Capricorn will bring a focus to the favorable Sun trine Uranus and Mars sextile Saturn and trine Jupiter. We move into an overall harmonious period with Moon in Aquarius on January 11, 12, and 13, with an equally favorable period with Moon in Pisces on January 13, 14, and 15.

Primary Action Beats for the Second Half of the Month

The second half of the month begins with Sun sextile Neptune, Mercury sextile Saturn and trine Jupiter, Venus square Neptune, and Sun conjunct Pluto during the third week of January. Intuition is high, focus is laser sharp, and information should be accurate and timely. While Venus square Neptune shows a need to adjust to what’s going on, find cooperation, and trust insights into human motives and illusions, we will see to the core of things and be led out into some sort of “transcendent activity.”

Of course the big news of that week is the Sun entering Aquarius just hours before Pluto re-enters that sign. This begins a renewal of the Aquarian energies of the Grand Mutation of 2020 at 1 Aquarius, and vitalizes the seeds of that 20 year promise. The weekend of January 19, 20, and 21 is sure to be intense, but with the Moon in Taurus trine the Sun and Pluto, it’s a good time to “escape from a narrow destiny,” or see how that’s been accomplished in the recent past.

The third week of January has the Moon moving between Pisces and Gemini, putting the focus on Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, and Uranus. January 15, 18, 19, and 20 should be very productive, with a need for caution on January 15-16 due to the Lunar squares to Mercury and Mars. Expect some focused intensity, heaviness, and sacrifices on January 20-21.

The fourth week begins with cross currents from the Moon in Gemini opposed Venus and square Neptune showing the need for precision. This is followed on January 23 with the Moon opposing Mercury and Mars. January 25 brings the Full Moon at 6 Leo/Aquarius, showing the need to admire differences rather than get into confrontations, and see the value in different generational approaches. There will be conflict as a result of increasing the pressure, but all of it is leading us to a greater vision of our group effectiveness.

The fourth week of January is a pretty intense time, given the Sun square Jupiter and Mercury conjunct Mars happening exactly while Uranus is turning stationary direct! Still, Venus sextile Saturn and trine Jupiter should make interactions pleasant and productive, with good deals everywhere!

The Moon transits between Gemini and Virgo during the fourth week of January, with favorable spiritual impressions on January 23 and 24, leading to the Full Moon making a T-square with Jupiter, a powerful integrative force helping us “tear away from the known and familiar, gambling everything on a great dream.” Be clear about how you want to represent yourself to your world, and find ways to keep the momentum in your own hands. Just be very careful and slow down on January 25 through 28, as Mercury is conjunct Mars!

The end of the month brings Mars trine Uranus, harmonizing planets we have around 18-22 Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, and Taurus. The Moon transits Virgo and Libra, with Virgo bringing harmony and Libra bringing friction, a Yod, and more friction through squares and quincunxes. As Mercury continues to sextile Neptune and trine Pluto, we should get a clear understanding of many things at that time.

Evolutionary Development

This is the sixth month of the North Node in Aries era! We’re now opening to many months of realizing that our line of greatest development is best served by self-initiated activity which acts in the NOW, demonstrated by our balanced response to paying dues and remembering we do emotional repair work by understanding why things end when they do. We gain through building emotional or social potency, and demonstrate it through reconstructed feelings. We build through Aries and release through Libra, so adopt a pioneering attitude that is expressed with grace and diplomacy.

This month we grow through generating forms of power the first half of the month, while needing to join with others to assist them through difficult times and find a “strife transcending, unattached outlook” on our lives. Here we get pulled to develop whatever Uranus awakened in 2015-2017. In any case, we grow through Aries and demonstrate it through Libra’s balance, fairness, and a sense of justice.

Our wise friend Saturn brought us to the threshold of radical transfiguration and entry into a greater field of conscious Light/Life in March, and having had our first experience of the Saturn in Pisces era, we now are ready to move forward into the next phase of the deep waters of Pisces. This is a time of demonstrating a greater empathy, sense of connection, intuition, and compassion.

Specific Saturn themes for January involve navigating social “traffic jams,” mastering discouraging circumstances and memories, and pledging ourselves to new forms of service. We now have the ability to negotiate in the “marketplace of life” and are discovering new ways to transact our business on every level, with ourselves as well as others.

The Sun in Capricorn is a time to see the Light of claiming our power, authority, or expertise in a group setup. In Scorpio we learned focus and left behind things which were obsolete or extraneous, and in Sagittarius we had an intense wild ride and broke free of old “cocoons.” Now we move into a new personal power and perhaps new responsibilities.

We now complete our third year of the new Aquarian era, and prepare for the fourth year, with a new iteration of that future-oriented energy coming this February! Jupiter in Taurus is allowing us new expansive ground which will sustain the Aquarian unfoldment into the future. Take a look back to see how you’ve attuned this year to your invisible helpers, and get ready to enter a new world in 2024. Find a good attitude, and the new land you find will be far more enjoyable than the old land you’ve had to leave.

Because we’re now in the third year of a new 20 year and 200 year cycle, remember a new era has dawned. Have courage and take the initiative to leave the Earth and fly free into the Air of what’s opening as the Grand Mutation expands its promise into the Divine transfigured ideal of a more just truth and future. This month brings a review and reflections of the entire year, with an eye to seeing how we’re using new perspectives, new ways of acting, and new answers for new questions as we sum up the year. As always, lighten up, play a little, and be willing to explore new arenas of effective activity where you can work and play with other Light Spirits, and take heart as we stand at the dawning of the coming Pluto in Aquarius era.

We have now collectively transfigured into a greater vision of the one Light/Life we all are together. Continue to find your heart strength and new forms of genuine happiness appropriate for who you are now, and who you are becoming relative to just a few months ago.

The 2022 Capricorn and Aquarius transits began a new chapter of utilizing forms of personal power which began in Capricorn to serve the emerging Aquarian ideal. We now navigate the cosmic time-space between endings and beginnings so bless and forgive much to flow down the time stream. The past is over and we all have begun our trek into a new world of new potential, new adventures, and new ways to enjoy being ourselves while doing our work of Destiny. Open to the abundance of the process of growth, since we are all on a rocket ship to the stars!
