Monthly Horoscope: Sagittarius, January 2022

Welcome to Capricorn season, dear Sagittarius!
Capricorn and Aquarius
Robin Eisenberg

The sun in Capricorn finds you focus on money, your belongings, and on an emotional level, your sense of comfort and security. One might expect this means you don’t want to shake things up, but as a Sagittarius, you’re always up for a new adventure! Calculated risks can bring big rewards, and if it doesn’t work out, at least you had fun trying!

January 1 finds you in an experimental, adventurous mood as the sun in Capricorn mingles with wildcard Uranus in Taurus. You may be switching up your schedule at this time, or trying something unexpected at work or with a project you’re working on. An uptick in communication takes place as Mercury enters Aquarius on January 2—but many of the plans and discussions that take place will be reconsidered and renegotiated when Mercury begins its retrograde later this month.

Mercury in Aquarius finds you mingling with your neighbors and getting involved with your community, and you might also be connecting with your siblings, if you have them. The new moon in Capricorn arrives on January 2, marking a fresh start in your finances. New moons are all about new beginnings, and a new source of income, or more generally, a new approach to managing or acquiring wealth emerges.

Venus is retrograde in Capricorn nearly all month, finding you deeply reconsidering your relationship to money and your belongings. You might decide to donate items you no longer use, or take a different approach to spending or saving money. In your relationships, you may be realizing how important it is to feel like someone is investing their time and energy in you—and that you don’t want to be the only one picking up the tab!

In addition to a shift in how you approach money and feeling valued, your tastes are evolving at this time, your sense of style shifting. You’re feeling especially creative as Venus connects with Neptune in Pisces while on its retrograde journey on January 5. The sun meets Venus retrograde on January 8, bringing an important realization concerning money, wealth, and comfort. 

The sun connects with Neptune on January 10, which could find you feeling sentimental and nostalgic. You may not be in the mood to do much as action planet Mars, which is currently in your sign, Sagittarius, squares off with Neptune on January 11. You could feel quite lazy at this time. Mercury retrograde begins in Aquarius on January 14, finding you contending with miscommunications or delays. You may be revisiting old ideas and conversations, perhaps gaining a new perspective at this time. Astrologers advise against traveling, signing contracts, or making big purchases during Mercury retrograde, but it’s a fine time to simply slow down and relax. Take time away from screens, and spend time in meditation. 

The sun meets Pluto in Capricorn on January 15, finding you accessing something rare or valuable! Mercury is retrograde, so you may revise your plans, but this could still be a good time to think about your budget. The full moon in Cancer arrives on January 17, finding you eager to settle a debt or resolve another financial issue. A climax may take place in a financial situation between you and a partner. Big emotions can surface at this time: Capricorn season calls us to be cool and collected, but this full moon in Cancer asks us to tend to our feelings and sensitivities. 

Uranus ends its retrograde in Taurus on January 18, bringing a change in plans or a shift to your schedule. Aquarius season begins on January 19, and Mercury retrograde meets the sun in Aquarius on January 23, finding you understanding things from a new perspective. Warrior planet Mars enters earth sign Capricorn on January 24, again shifting your focus to finances. Mars in Capricorn is all about strategy and stamina, and this can help with achieving your financial goals! Mercury re-enters Capricorn while on its retrograde journey on January 25, finding you revisiting plans or paperwork regarding money. Mercury retrograde meets Pluto on January 28, revealing intriguing information.

Venus ends its retrograde in Capricorn on January 29, bringing a much more easygoing energy, especially when it comes to money. The last few weeks have been very informative for you, Sagittarius! Venus retrograde taught you a lot about what you’re looking for in love, what you need in your finances, and what your standards and values look like. The sun squares off with wildcard Uranus on January 30, finding you eager to shake up your schedule…the same old routine may not be working for you anymore!

Good luck this month, Sagittarius, and see you February!
