Monthly Horoscope: Gemini, January 2022

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

You’re focused on financial matters this month, Gemini, as the sun in Capricorn lights up the sector of your chart that rules issues like debts, taxes, and money you share with others.

An unexpected gift or surprise financial twist pop up on January 1 as the sun mingles with electric Uranus in Taurus. On an emotional level, this may be a spiritually freeing moment: Perhaps you’re feeling liberated from the past, or free from a feeling that’s been weighing on you. Your ruling planet Mercury enters fellow air sign Aquarius on January 2, which may bring news from abroad or discussions about travel or education. Mercury in Aquarius finds you sharing exciting news or even publishing something!

Also on January 2, there’s the new moon in Capricorn, finding you wiping the slate clean in your finances: You might be paying off a debt or starting a new financial plan you share with a partner. Venus, the planet of money and relationships, is retrograde for most of this month in Capricorn, finding you seriously reflecting on how you and your partners approach sharing money and your belongings.

On January 5, Venus connects with Neptune in Pisces, which could bring a glamorous or inspiring event your way that provides an opportunity to explore your values, partnerships, and desires on a spiritual, emotional, or creative way. The sun meets Venus retrograde on January 8, marking the start of a new journey in love, money, beauty, and your values, and the sun connects with Neptune on January 10, bringing a boost of creativity and finding you in a glitzy atmosphere!

Mars in Sagittarius squares off with Neptune on January 11, which could bring confusion or laziness. Your partners may feel especially confused about how to proceed with things! Miscommunications and delays continue as Mercury retrograde begins in Aquarius on January 14: Traveling, spending, and signing contracts are usually advised against during this time—but you could find yourself reconnecting with a friend who is far away, or rediscovering an idea that you’re eager to explore. The sun meets Pluto in Capricorn on January 15, finding you tapping into a wealth of shared resources, and despite this mid-month confusion, you’re feeling especially powerful and in control!

The full moon in Cancer arrives on January 17, bringing a situation that has been brewing in your finances to a climax. Information may be revealed, and you may be letting go of something or selling it. Emotionally, this full moon finds you reflecting on themes like comfort and security. Fortunately, you’re comfortable with a little unpredictability as long as it keeps things fresh—you often enjoy being surprised, and unexpected shifts can take place as Uranus ends its retrograde in Taurus on January 18! You may feel restless or have some very unusual dreams, so it’s important to carve out quality time to rest and to keep your schedule flexible. Try not to over-commit to plans. 

The sun enters Aquarius on January 19, likely finding you in a free-spirited mood, eager to explore, learn, and grow! An important realization can take place as the sun meets Mercury retrograde in Aquarius on January 23, especially concerning your worldview or life philosophy, or regarding communication. Action planet Mars enters Capricorn on January 24, empowering you to courageously face any financial issues you’ve been dreading, whether that’s organizing your bills, dealing with taxes, or addressing a situation with a partner. Mars is all about taking care of business when it’s in industrious Capricorn! 

Mercury re-enters Capricorn while on its retrograde journey on January 25, which could find you revisiting conversations about money that were previously set aside, and on January 28, Mercury meets Pluto, finding you learning intriguing information, or even a secret or two! A previously obscured resource may become available. Intense conversations take place, deepening intimacy between you and your partners. A sensitive topic may be revisited, this time with new perspective.

Venus retrograde ends on January 29, finding you moving forward with all the lessons you’ve learned about love and money. Things may feel a little less intense now, and you’ve likely raised your standards in your relationships and finances, which can benefit you greatly as you move forward. The sun squares off with wildcard Uranus on January 30, finding you embarking on an unexpected adventure or having a spiritual breakthrough. You’re leaving behind limiting experiences and shrugging off those who seek to control you! 

Good luck this month, Gemini, and see you in February!
