Astrological Context, Week of January 2, 2023

Remember that these aspects (aside from entry into new signs) will be in effect a few days before and a few days after the exact dates listed here. So keep this in mind when reading the daily updates this week.

At 9:09pm Monday, Venus enters Aquarius, where she turns our affections to the intellectual and communal. We may spend the next few weeks “in love with” ideas and ideals, and yet have a harder time connecting with people on a personal level.

Venus sextiles Jupiter on Wednesday, bringing a generally nice flow to the midweek. It’s a good time for social gatherings, especially if they are kept light.

Thursday sees the Sun trine Uranus, boosting our sense of independence in a non-revolutionary way. It’s a good time now to celebrate who you are, as well as the benefit of our differences. Mercury trines Uranus Sunday, continuing this energy, though shifting it to the intellectual somewhat. Though Mercury is retrograde now, this can be a good time for brainstorming and taking a different view of things, even if it’s not great for implementing them (yet).

On Saturday, retrograde Mercury moves across the Sun, making much of the day a little easier for Mercury issues. This is the day to get important things done, if you need to.
