A Slow and Cautious Beginning
Mercury turns retrograde on Friday, January 14 at 3:41am until February 3 between 10º19' and 25º34' Capricorn. Its shadow period remains until February 24. The next three weeks require that we rethink our organization. Adapting our structures to new demands allows us to be more effective. Taking responsibility for our words and actions is an absolute necessity. We could adopt a more pragmatic approach to life and might even show signs of cautious pessimism. Carrying ourselves with dignity and authority helps us impose clear boundaries. Within self-imposed rules, we are serious, focused, disciplined, and ambitious.
Uranus turns direct on Monday, January 17 at 7:27am at 10º49' Taurus. Its shadow period remains until May 5, 2022. This degree is symbolized in the Sabian symbols by “a woman watering flowers in her garden.” The past months have brought much rebelliousness in us, encouraging us to assert our truth and individuate. We found what makes us feel free and discovered who we really are in our uniqueness. In this newfound completeness, we can now cultivate our garden, enjoy the beauty of life, give birth to more enchantment, and feel serene.
