Shake that groove thing
Keep that promise to yourself
Baby – you’re back and better than ever!
Finally, it’s happening to me. It’s a defining disco moment when ruler Mars finally ends its patience straining retrograde in your 3rd on the 12th. Yes, you are allowed to get your freak on and dance in your pre-Y2K ‘going out’ gear around your living room. Have yourself a Priscilla moment. You earned it and emerge from your toughest retrocycle yet the embodiment of grace and glitter under pressure.
When you feel frustrated, blocked or simply lacking your usual signature confidence, you’ll compensate by going on the offensive – when none is needed. Leaving others feelings overwhelmed, overpowered or simply scared. But now you’re back. In the best possible way. Open to sharing those points of view again. And no longer dealing with that feeling you’re trying every track but nothing gets others on the dance floor with you. Your groove is back – and everyone now boogies along to that beat with you.
You are not quite out of the woods yet however. The final kick start occurs shortly when Mercury heads direct later this month. In the interim, cue up those plans which you spent this prolonged replay cycle refining. Juno arrives in your sign this week. The astral body of marriage and promises to keep. Or those we cannot exit from easily. This applies to the promises we make to ourselves. Usually the ones we break the most easily. Now you take them every bit as seriously as those you make to others. Take the pledge to shine or do something with that plan, Aries. Disco lights show you the steps to take from next week onwards.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mars gets you your groove back as it finally heads direct in your 3rd this week. You’re not only projecting confidence but a scorching intent when it comes to something or someone you’re serious about. Werk it, Aries!

What’s worth the most to you?
Reconcile and rebalance
What’s burning a hole in that soul?
Money burning a hole in your pocket or has it fallen through that hole in your budget, Taurus? What about something more valuable? That confidence or self-worth? This could be the real burning question caused by Mars retrograde in your 2nd. This week sees it head direct but take it that the books may take a while to be reconciled as just like a Mercury retrograde, Mars also has a retroshadow. It won’t be fully clear of this until March.
Checks and balances quite literally feature. Delays around money may still occur. Trying to reconcile something quite literally with another party? A settlement, contract, terms of a relationship, an exit strategy or even yes, an actual reconciliation? Juno’s arrival into your 12th tells you any terms need to be woven around what is of intangible value to you. And also reminds you that the terms will be binding.
Do continue to keep a close eye on your budget, resist large purchases and above all, work through any remaining issues you have to your relationship with money. Money talks and never more so than when you have a major planetary transit happening in your 2nd house which is the sign of Gemini and communication. How you spend or save, invest or splurge, what you consider not for sale at any cost – all these transactions speak volumes about who you are and your values. So this week, look at what your cash is really saying about you. And do remember that as in any relationship, you can change the conversation or the dialogue at any given point, Taurus. For keeps this week if necessary.
In a nutshell: Money may be burning a hole in your pocket but look closer, Taurus. Chances are it’s actually a burning desire in your soul that needs filling! Mars direct this week tells you to go directly to that need – and fulfil it.

Friends get locked in for the long term
Commit to that dream
All dazzle and no more dulls, Gemini!
Mars direct in your 1st this week hands you your groove back, Gemini. A surprise twist may coincide with the big energy change thanks to a trine between Venus and Mars (still retro) on the 9th and then a Venus/hipster Uranus square on the 15th. A change or shift in perspective which opens your eyes or something which has you having to reach for a dramatic, dynamic and previously untried solution which propels you out of the mehs. Yes, there may be an adrenalin shot involved as you have to act in the moment. But suddenly – you feel alive and better still, your self-confidence is restored, Gemini.
Friends, mates, baes, besties, bands, networks, groups, movements, clubs, unions. Time to be a participant not a spectator as Juno enters your 11th. Juno is the asteroid which rules marriage, partnerships and promises. The kind of commitments we make that we cannot easily exit from. Yes, of course we can, but as in a marriage, it requires a divorce – which in itself is another lasting promise. What Juno promises in your 11th is friendship of the lasting kind. And a big commitment to a goal. If you and others pledge to come together to change the world, that’s your mission statement now. And you will see it through.
You are all in when it comes to that vision or dream. With Mars now moving forward you will begin to take the next step fuelled by the return of your belief in yourself and what you see yourself having, doing or experiencing. Do remember – Jupiter granter of wishes is back in your 11th until May. Heaven helps those who help themselves, Gemini. And especially those who know they can.
In a nutshell: Mars direct in your sign removes those speed bumps between you and what you dream of achieving. Goals get that extra boost of staying power and commitment – which elevates them out of wish and on into fulfilment!

I can see clearly now
Go for the long haul
Clear out the cobwebs of confusion this week as Mars breaks free of its retrograde in your 12th. The way ahead or at the very least, the next step you need to take becomes clear. Partnership matters can also begin to move forward this week. As could changes around what you share with another party.
Courage returns. You tap back into that secret well of intuition, insight and certainty that may have been clogged with static since Mars did a u-turn back in October. That transmission or the bigger picture clears up with clarity of purpose and intention replacing all that hazy broadcast. The 13th offering you that ultra HD view you may have been missing. This involves a past, present or emerging partnership with a commitment being asked of you – one way or another.
You need your feet firmly on the ground and also to be able to trust that the message your usually peerless intuition is the correct one when it comes to the choice or decision you now need to make. You may not see the final result of this until March however when Mercury exits its retroshadow. But you will look back at this week and realise this is when you decided very clearly where you wanted a certain alliance to go. Or what that new one you now need to go seek out looks like. All down to Juno arriving in your 10th of career and status on the 14th – joining Jupiter and Chiron.
This can be a working dynamic as well as the love/marriage variety. Juno rules promises we keep or which we can’t easily extricate ourselves from. Or even want to. So, this is your path and another’s and a long term direction. Whatever you do decide – there’s no middle ground, Cancer. It’s all in or all out and you play for keeps. This week sets your intentions for the future in motion. Backed by your foresight and personal power and belief in those goals and dreams. Not to mention that inner vision guiding you.
In a nutshell: Your soul compass now points in a clear direction again once Mars exits retrograde in your 12th. Bring that clear vision to bear on love and also career matters. You’re committed to your path or purpose, Cancer.

Duos, duets, double acts feature
What returns holds fresh meaning
Do you believe in miracles?
You’ve got that loving feeling, Leo. And the desire to share it. Across all types of connections thanks to Venus in its ruling 7th. The alignment it makes to Mars (still retroactive on the 9th) could see a past love cross your path. Or a revival of a friendship or opportunity. Mars is direct again from the 12th – in your social 11th which also rules your future and your goals. Think something stuck or lacklustre getting that lightning strike which electrifies it again.
It could be a situation as opposed to a person – or group of them. Your ruler the Sun aligns to Neptune in your 8th hinting at a possibility resurrected for you. Do however ensure you examine that gift unicorn and check the fine print. Mercury remains retrograde in its ruling 6th in your chart until later this month. If something is too mystically good to be true – then it probably is.
But then – Jupiter back in its ruling 9th makes you optimistic and a little daring. And yes, reawakens your belief in minor miracles – and your ability to make these happen. Jupiter and also Chiron in your 9th get throupled-up with Juno from the 14th. Juno brings the promise of a bigger love experience and one that has something to teach you. Yes, its all a bit disco as in You Sexy Thing. You and equally, the party concerned. The next stage of an existing relationship or the emergence of a new one. Jupiter always invites – don’t forget that. It’s our choice how we RSVP. Juno tells you that your answer is for keeps. And with big potential benefits attached. Lasting, long term love that takes you further.
In a nutshell: Where you from, you sexy thing! Is this your theme tune this week, Leo as Mars ends its retrograde in your social sector and Venus lights up your house of love term love? Throw in Juno and Jupiter in your 9th and something or someone miraculous could just cross your path.

Plans get a reboot
Get ready to move on up
Being you? A full time occupation – work it!
Ruler Mercury remains retrograde in your romance zone – and your house of children, creativity, self-expression, attraction and holidays. There could be a shift going on here that by the time we get to the year’s end, you’ll see was actually a preview of what was to come. Yes, sometimes a retrograde masks a new beginning. Holidays get a special mention due to Mercury’s potential to mess with your plans. Other than that, both the Mercury and the Mars retrograde (which ends this week), could be concealing a change around work, business or a key project or plan.
Mars has been blocking career progress but what this retrograde has asked you to embrace is the fact you are so much more than a job title, career path or salary. That’s not to diminish all your work or efforts. Just that this is but one facet of the entire package that is you. Looking at your role – whether this is a paid or unpaid one, and saying this is just one point on my resume. But not all I am nor what I have to offer. Take this fresh appreciation of all you are and can be, and apply this to any area where there’s an ambition to make it better.
Yes, being a successful human being is a full time occupation. One we are all engaged in. And a career in which we constantly gain more experience and get better at! Background moves or solutions move to the foreground as Venus trines Mars. There’s a pivotal choice or decision to be made as Juno joins Jupiter and Chiron in your 8th. You’re feeling ready and primed to move forward. Life has some kind of promotion in store for you. Including the self-promotion kind. Or anything that adds to that cred, gets your noticed or bumps up that CV, Virgo.
In a nutshell: Work and career plans receive more than one boost from the cosmos this week thanks to Mars direct and Juno’s arrival in your 8th. You could reach an agreement which puts you in a better position or boosts those ambitions. Being CEO of you? Simply a boss act, Virgo.

15 Jan 2023 Venus in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus (6th to 9th)
Conceive something new
Home improvements need time
Heart starting freedom comes calling
Home matters – moving, buying, selling, renting, leasing, airbnb-ing, roomies, renovations, redecorations and repairs may be in a state of flux or simply hanging like flock wallpaper until March, Libra. This week sees the retro energy begin to break up as Mars heads direct in your 9th of freedom, travel, opportunity and learning. This begins to re-open those expansion plans but not those closer to home.
Ruler Venus is now crafting a superb reboot around love, creative plans, concepts, conceptions, children or travel as it trines Mars on the 9th and then moves to square Uranus in your 8th on the 15th. Uranus is in that other Venus ruled sign of Taurus. So, a shift or change is actually to your ultimate benefit here despite what we would normally say is a narky angle. Venus holds sway. Time to set your intentions and also stick to them.
Entwine those intentions, prepare for promises to stick and for an act of wild generosity or offer. Time to say ‘Yes’ to anything from that person, to that dress or that job. Juno’s arrival in your 7th brings lasting promise and longevity. That promise is genuine and is designed to be kept. What you agree to is binding now. A big act of faith may be called for. But all acts of love require faith. There’s more than one version of ‘I do’ – or ‘I don’t’ for that matter. Both state your intention. Say it and mean it, Libra.
In a nutshell: Ruler Venus in your love zone aligns to Mars direct from the 12th, sending you off in a fresh direction along a heart starting journey of loving and learning. About time, Libra. You’re so over spinning your wheels. Now the Wheel of Fortune spins for you.

How much is ‘enough’?
Focus on security driven action
Love needs boundaries
Ancient ruler Mars removes that Stop sign and restores your confidence, courage and va-va-voom. It heads direct this week after a protracted retrograde in its ruling 8th and hands you back your ability to craft self-directed and empowered change. As well as restoring you as the mage of all things sexy.
All this may sound like a power trip and on an inner level it is. Feeling we can direct our path, our destiny and resources where we want them to go is a powerful feeling. As is feeling creative, sensual and a magnetic force. Baby, you’re back! Just keep in mind that just like a Mercury retrograde, a Mars one does have a retroshadow too and it will take until March for Mars to fully clear this one. Taking you up to when ruler Pluto changes signs into your 4th. Also, we are still in a Mercury retro this week to. And Mercury is in its ruling house. Work, career, finance and business matters may still be on a rocky road to the top.
Security or its opposite – feeling insecure or uncertain, will become a theme. As could asking how much is ‘enough’ and when is enough is enough and you should say ‘No’? This can touch on your finances but also on your personal relationships too. I could even say the one you have with yourself. That’s self-control. Think on this – love requires boundaries. Venus’s link to Mars and then Uranus this week is all about them – and your values.
We need boundaries in all our connections for them to function. We see time and time again what happens when boundaries get stepped over. Anyone who truly loves you won’t love you less because you put the boundaries in. Instead they value and love you move. And if they don’t – you should know what to do. This is about willpower and self-control. And once you have that you control your destiny. Love yourself enough to say no to you if you feel it is not in your long benefit to say yes. That self-love then ripples out and drawing the line next time – so natural and easy!
In a nutshell: Ancient ruler Mars is all about boundaries. Knowing where they are and where to put them if needed. Real love thrives on knowing where they are. So, as Mars heads direct this week – don’t be afraid to put some new ones in if needed. And in the name of self-love too!

Free that pent up passion
Agreement brings a game-changer
Here comes the love, Sagittarius. And all the ways you can express and communicate it. As well as receive, share and totally immerse yourself in it. Love is more than a feeling. It’s an experience. And a promise now Juno joins ruler Jupiter in your love and pleasure zone. Let the good times roll and yes, keep on rolling as Juno adds that extra dimension of lasting promise.
Mars ends its retrocycle in your 7th house which is the big break for you. Partnership matters are freed. Whether its plans you have with your boo, a potential one, or a working dynamic. There’s a discussion or even the beginning of an important flirtation commencing on the 9th when Venus in your 3rd links to Mars. Watch how quickly things move forward from this point on.
Mercury remains retro in your 2nd and this particular retrograde has wanted you to look closely at your values within a relationship. And made these the all-important deal maker or breaker going forward. As well as continuing to keep hold of those purse strings, those values are your super glue. Or will what will cement you with someone in the future.
Big decisions lie ahead for you between now and May around lovers, babies, children, parenting, your creative life, your passions and yes, even that big trip, Sag. In one, some or any of these areas it could be a game changer and also let back in the joy that may have been hard to ground recently. For some of you, this could even be a return somewhere or to someone or something. Second times the charm.
In a nutshell: Rev up that passion and start in the name of love! Mars heads direct this week in your partnership zone putting passion and two hearts aligned back on your radar! It comes with long term enchantment as Juno joins ruler Jupiter in your romance zone.

Direct those resources
Reclaim your path, passion and purpose
Fine tune that aura
Resources including emotional ones – love, time, talents – and how you direct these continue to be a theme for you. You have Mercury remaining retrograde in your sign but this week Mars shifts forward in your everyday work and habits sector. How you direct what you have and into what area, that routine, habits and how they support you get a reinjection of Mars’ can-do, fired up energy. If tasks have been piling up, you’ll now tackle them with ease.
Venus is in its ruling 2nd and this is another house which rules your resources. Money being one of them as well as the intangible yet just as valuable ones. Your self-worth and belief in yourself which also impacts on your appearance and the energy you project. That invisible aura is what people read as well as that outer appearance, Capricorn. So, this week is a good one to retune that if needed. Yes, you can be dressed head to toe in couture, but if you don’t feel the same within, people do pick up on that disconnect. Some things you can’t disguise.
As you look at what isn’t enough – and hopefully you know you ARE enough, Juno enters Aries and your 4th this week. Joining Jupiter and Chiron. While Venus trines Mars and squares Uranus so this is all about self-worth and knowing you own that, Cappy. Long term decisions can be made around work, property, home, income, living arrangements, family and lifestyle. By the time March arrives you’ll have all your ducks in a row so to speak. This week is the time to think about your next move and to align your energy – within and the one which surrounds you – to it. From the end of the month it will be time to make those moves.
In a nutshell: You’ve energy to burn now Mars heads direct in your house of can-do, must-do dharma and studies. If you’re contemplating that serious work or career move, ensure the aura you project matches your look and your intentions, Capricorn. It all rests on what you don’t say – but communicate anyway.

Head first into romance, pleasure and hedonism
That tough choice just got easy
Agreements and promises change the game
Mars heads direct again in your house of lovers, passion, hedonism, fun, pleasure and creativity. The heat is back on again when it comes to what or who you love. Or love to do. In every sense of the word, Aquarius. There is still a pause hanging over this due to Mercury remaining retrograde in your 12th. The question of whether you revive something, carry it forward with you or let it go may still be undecided. Just take it you will have your answer by the end of next month.
You have Venus in your 1st enhancing everything you do and bathing you in self-love, indulgence and yes, attraction. Its trine to Mars (9th) and then tight angle to your ruler Uranus (15th) makes even a usually tough should I or shouldn’t I? decision easy for you. This could see you on an inner level at least, make that choice even if making your move takes a little longer.
You’ll love the return of charisma, passion and the confidence to go after what you want. Or simply follow what fires up your soul like a heat-seeking missile. Play, hobbies, holidays (watch that Mercury retro), or activities you lose yourself are your go-to areas. And you let go of worries of what others may think. Being in the moment is your goal and the more you are, the more flows your way. Including attention.
Juno joins Jupiter and Chiron in your 3rd adding to that devil may care attitude as keeping your word to yourself becomes all important. However, Juno is the ruler of lasting promises and this is your house of contracts – verbal and written. You may be entering into a big, lasting one between now and May, Aquarius. It’s a game changer. Get ready to sign your name on paper or on someone’s heart.
In a nutshell: If you’ve been uncertain or wavering over a decision, this week makes it easy. Your right to choose – and correctly, is restored. What’s more, charisma, confidence and your ability to draw what you need to you, is a power you effortlessly wield, Aquarius. Embrace the return of magical you!

Own your life path again
Need advice? That resource is in your circle
Harness confidence, courage and make that move!
Mars heads direct in your 4th and moves or changes around family or your lifestyle/living arrangements are possible now. Do keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde in your 11th of the future so this combined with Juno’s arrival in your money zone, tells you to think long and hard before signing anything. Contracts, loans, mortgages and agreements need to be future proof because Juno sets things up for the long term.
By the time your birthday cycle ends this year we are out of retrograde weather but you will have Saturn arriving in your sign for the first time in 28+ years. Do check your chart to see if you are having your Saturn return now. It’s time to get serious and Saturn’s rings represent boundaries and being ‘locked in’ to something. Again, this speaks of looking long and hard at those decisions and agreements now as they will be binding. Do seek out professional advice if necessary.
Looking to the lessons or your experiences from the past, asking those people you trust who have gathered life experience and are in a position to advise you – these are your hidden resources. Juno joins ancient ruler Jupiter and Chiron in here telling you that you have who or what you need at your disposal. The Sun’s angle to your ruler Neptune on the 13th could highlight who amongst your larger circle can act as a sounding board or facilitator if needed. Do avoid that over-cautious family member who has trouble thinking outside the box however. This week is setting you up for a move forward that may call on your confidence and courage. It may ask you to strike out on your own path in your own way. And in doing so own your power. But it could also be long overdue.
In a nutshell: You’ll be ready to make a choice or decision that’s long overdue, Pisces. Yes, you’ll seek out advice if needed. But expect a return of soul surety and confidence this week when it comes to anything long term.

It will launch in 2023, but why not take a little sneak peek at the cards below?
