Astrological Events in the Second Half of January 2023

Astrological Events in the Second Half of January 2023

Here’s a re-cap for what we can expect for the rest of January.

The Overview for the Second Half of January

This year the month of January is a swirl of activity divided into two halves; the first half when Mercury is retrograde and the second half when Mercury is direct. During the first half, it makes several aspects to other planets as noted above; during the second half, it makes the same aspects but in direct motion rather than retrograde. So we get two different angles on the messages, signs, and signals Mercury is sending us this month!

Along with Mercury retrograde, the big news is that just a few days after the Inferior Conjunction of the Sun and Mercury at 17 Capricorn on January 7, Mars finally goes direct at 9 Gemini and begins to re-trace the shadow zone span from 9 to 26 Gemini a third time which will give us all a sense that things are moving forward. Hopefully what we’ve learned about a healthy Mars in Gemini expression in our charts will be made manifest in positive ways! As Mars is ruled by Mercury all month, and Mercury’s in Capricorn, the sign of Mars’ exaltation, this should be an excellent month for organization, reorganization, and renewal of our group intention and effort.

Remember this month is under several influences which began in late December. We had the second Mercury/Venus conjunction this year just hours after Mercury went stationary retrograde at 25 Capricorn. As that is the degree theme for all of 2022, and the degree of two Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions in 2020, this month brings us insights, signs, and signals about the seeds of expansive purified energy planted then which we’ve been practicing ever since. The Mercury conjunct Venus fused the rulership energies of our Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, and Libra sectors in a new cycle of Mind and Likes. This Capricorn energy will be very dominant in what manifests in coming months.

When Jupiter entered Aries just hours before the Solstice, we launched into a new era which is flaming on quickly, renewing its fiery expression and accelerating like a rocket ship on its way to transiting its May 2022 conjunction point with Mars at 4 Aries between January 14 and 20. That conjunction began a 2 year cycle of learning how to enjoy life more naturally on our own terms. Once it transits 4 Aries it’ll be on its way to another major long term healing and mentoring cycle when Jupiter conjuncts Chiron in March at 15 Aries, setting a 12 year cycle into motion. Jupiter moving through Aries gives an Aries backdrop to planets we have in Sagittarius and Pisces, as well as the houses where we have these signs on the cusp.

Saturn is now at the end time of its transit of Aquarius. Its entry into Aquarius between March and July 2020 shook up the world and galvanized us to action. Its re-entry in December 2020 preceded Jupiter’s entry into that sign by a few days, and their conjunction then created the Grand Mutation at 1 Aquarius. That conjunction ended a 200 year Earth era and began a 200 year Air era, and set the social-cultural conditions for the greater Aquarian 20 year era now developing.

During all of 2021 and 2022 we’ve been learning how we want to contribute to a greater future-oriented vision, and how to manage our feelings and our individual spirituality. This month Saturn continues to crystallize what we need to learn about the second half of Aquarius, with the theme of “Management.” Its October station encouraged us in November to rise to some type of urgent need, “emergency,” or “an exaggeration of life problems.” The first week of January is about training, the second week is about finding genuine dispassion and using our past experiences to teach others, the third week plus a few days is about being consciously volitional rather than reflexive in our responses, and the last week is our final exam in the skillful use of spiritual energy.

Mars

The entire month (except January 31) Mars is in the first decan of Gemini, ruled by Mercury with an extra dose of Jupiter. Because Mars occupies only 9 and 10 Gemini the entire month, it will agitate those with planets between 7-12 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. This will revert back to the usual movement in February, when those with planets between 11-19 of those signs will be agitated.

Primary Action Beats for the Second Half of the Month

The second half of the month begins the Moon in Scorpio forming interlocking off-set Yods as the nozzle of Mars sextile Jupiter and then later that day sextiling Mercury with Mars as the nozzle. That should be excellent for spiritual breakthroughs on every level! Mercury quincunxes Mars on January 16/17, with a heavy atmosphere due to the Moon square Saturn on the 16th.

The mood will feel much different with Moon in Sagittarius Jan 16-19 as Mercury finally goes direct on a degree of attunement with our invisible helpers. We’ll all be given a technique to attune emotionally and/or socially with the invisible world which will help us attune to “All That Is.” Of course, that Mercury direct station will be a very heavy time as the Sun conjuncts Pluto at 29 Capricorn, a technical degree of personal spiritual power expressed through a group work.

January 20 brings the Sun’s entry into Aquarius, again illuminating and powering up the themes of the Grand Mutation at 1 Aquarius. We’re all being led into work which will outlive us if we choose to participate in the emergent Aquarian collective field. And just as Mercury quincunxed Mars on January 16 while retrograde, it makes another exact quincunx while direct on January 20. As the quincunxes take place from 9 Capricorn to 9 Gemini, productive growth can be found in eliminating the obsolete and doing forms of repair work, as well as focusing our emotional intensity creatively to use our “spiritual Breathwork” to create beauty or express our sense of it.

The fourth week of January brings the New Moon at 2 Aquarius, the same degree Saturn went stationary retrograde in the Spring of 2020! The themes of that New Moon involve being “galvanized to action” through “spectacular developments” which may be challenging, and are definitely electrifying. That will initiate 4 weeks of exceptionally productive work which furthers the Aquarian ideal taking shape in our lives.

January 22 brings Venus conjunct Saturn and Uranus going stationary direct! As always, be careful a couple of days before and after the Uranus station, as these are major points of shift in the invisible spiritual field. Venus is the first inner planet to conjunct Saturn this year, setting the year theme of these blended energies. As it happens at 25 Aquarius, in all relationship and money matters this year, be less instinctive and more volitional. Choose how you want to respond rather than allow your feelings to lead you to that response.

Uranus going direct is a big deal. It’s on a degree we’ve dealt with before, which is about “braving the storm” to build character. So the good news is we’re almost done with our “character building” lessons which began the Summer of 2021. There is no bad news.

As Mercury and Mars are now in forward motion, things should be moving along quite nicely, even if adjustments and sacrifices have been required up to this point due to the two-week long quincunx between these planets. January 24 shows Sun sextile Jupiter, with very favorable aspects from Moon in Pisces that day, and in Aries on Jan 25-27. January 26 features Venus’ entry into Pisces, its sign of exaltation, promising more empathy, depth, and compassion in our Venus experience of late January into February.

The end of the month is very favorable on a practical level, as the Moon in Taurus makes great aspects on January 27-29 accompanied by Sun trine Mars, favoring all planets we have near 8-12 Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. The month closes with the Moon in Gemini making a run of very favorable aspects, so get a lot done!

The Sun in Capricorn is a time to see the Light of “claiming our responsibilities to the tribe” on material, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of life. This is a sober sense of our power in a societal context which gives us a sense of investment in the larger group work we’re doing. What was bound in Scorpio “explodes into space” In Sagittarius, and is crafted into forms of personal power in Capricorn.

As Capricorn is the 12th sign from Aquarius, it represents the harvest, the karma, the motive, and the completion of Aquarius, where the ideal achieved sees what will be brought into the future and what cannot be brought into the future. We now explore our ability to “take charge” of something with public or group significance. The personal power we find and practice in Capricorn is what creates the substance for the new Aquarian expression. Since both signs are highly active this month, enjoy finding ways to make more significant contributions to a greater group work.

The promise of the 2022 Aquarian energies are now being fulfilled, and the larger Aquarian pulses that were set into motion in 2020 will be renewed in the next few weeks. This completes the Aquarian lessons of 2022, with a lot of productivity happening now as prelude to the rapid developments to come in 2023. Because Jupiter is in Aries, face the future and don’t clutch as things rapidly accelerate. This broadens the Aquarian vision through direct action, and guarantees us a rapid expansion of awareness in our Aries sector in 2023. We are unique sparks of Light which are part of the greater infinite Light Field. The vision of 2021 has now manifested in a new iteration, with new visions and harvests coming the next few weeks.

As we’re now at the end of the second 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 the promises of greater adventures to come as we continue to build strength and resilience and demonstrate gratitude for all we have and all which has brought us to exactly where we are, for better or worse. In any case, we stand at the end of the Pluto in Capricorn era, and soon will begin to experience the dawning of the coming Pluto in Aquarius era.

The 2022 Capricorn and Aquarius transits began a new chapter of utilizing forms of personal power in Capricorn to serve the emerging Aquarian ideal. A huge part of the past died earlier this year and a new expansive inspired energy came in via the Mars conjunction with Jupiter in Aries. Capricorn and Aquarius transits fulfill what began in Aries, and re-set the long wave Saturn in Aquarius lessons at this end of the beginning of the new Aquarian 20 year era.

Our wisdom is taking shape through our power to attain freedom of movement despite limiting conditions. We have been through a time of finding “spiritual linkage through emotional stress” and “the blessings which come after the end of old ways” since June, and now stand on the threshold of transfiguration. Find your heart strength and open to finding new forms of genuine happiness appropriate for who you are now, and who you are becoming relative to just a few months ago.

We’ve ended many things and began a new expression these past six months; 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!


I gave you this 2 weeks ago, and it bears a new look. It’s an in-depth look at the main astrological events for the last half of January from the Astrology Arizona newsletter group members receive at the beginning of each month. I hope you’ll consider joining our group, since we have high level astrology presentations each month.

Members get a discount for our zoom presentations, and we have had some of the best astrologers anywhere giving talks about all kinds of great astrological topics. We’ve had “Evolutionary Configurations,” “America at the Crossroads,” “Using Planetary Hours in Charts,” “Outer Planet Cycles and How The Past Affects the Present,” “The Three Part Self,” “How Our Chart Expresses Our Spiritual Potential,” and more.

In our May talk, I spoke about my new book The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames and how to change our relationships for the better, as well as Soul Mates and why we’ve attracted who we’ve attracted throughout our lives. We’re having Predictions for 2023 on January 21. You can find out more at the FB page, our website, or by writing me.
