Covid 19 Update:
No astrologer or astrological tool, including this AI-based engine, had foreseen the unprecedented pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus.
 
However, many experts were expecting large scale natural disasters to rock humanity. This is because the two most dreaded planets, Saturn and Pluto meet (conjuncts) at 22°46' Capricorn.
 
This is a rare cosmic influence, that impacts entire mankind, and should be over by February 2021. Astrologically, good fortunes shall prevail from 20th December 2020, when Jupiter meets Saturn - known as the "Great Conjunction".
 
Until then, be safe, and keep your loved ones safe.
 
How adverse is this influence for you?

  • Welcome to January 2023, dear Taurus! The beginning of the month finds you expanding your experiences and awareness, through travel or learning. But it is not that easy right now - with Mercury and Mars in Retrograde (backward-moving) motion. You are facing communication and technology breakdowns - in a nervous and touchy state of mind, you are looking for pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, and you are taking time to think before acting or lacking initiative. Fated events and repeating themes may reinforce, forcing you to re-think!
     
    Overall, you already have a challenging time with your occupation and public image. And, there is chaos of sorts (or some radical change) in your self-presentation and views. However, you stand optimistic and content regarding your inner self, spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life. These are long-term trends that are expounded in Yearly Horoscopes.
     
    Also, Mr. TIOS mentions that these decan-wise horoscopes are general observations, and far from accurate. The dates and events may vary from individual to individual - as a glance at the observations for different decans would reveal. For more appropriate observations, he needs your date of birth.

  • 1st January:
    Relaxation, creativity, communication, and spiritual pursuits - are in the air, when the sky observes tactful Mercury in Capricorn connecting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. Your words become soothing and can actually be healing to others. All of your senses become acute, enabling you to pick up a lot of extra information through your intuition. You may even receive spiritual information through dreams, meditation, your spirit guide or through chance encounters.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 4th January.

     
     
  • 4th January:
    Optimistic and sweet Venus in Aquarius clashes with your personal Sun. This is a time when you are less motivated or driven than usual. Lazy appreciation for the good life comes now. You are distracted when it comes to work, and you are more likely to overeat, overspend, and avoid anything that makes you feel unbalanced or uncomfortable. Irritations that seem to stem from others could be the reflection of your own inner uneasiness. Do your best to control yearnings for more than what you have and search for a creative solution for your inner dissatisfaction.
     
    And then - Sweet Venus, that is optimistic and outgoing in Aquarius, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.
     This influence stays with you till 27th January.

     
    Again - Cheerful and charming, and also warm, generous and loving atmosphere - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Aquarius connecting with optimistic Jupiter in Aries - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. This is one of the best days because it brings popularity, good fortune, and true love. Relationships are most important to you because of your need for companionship and romance - and you may enjoy flirting, but can also be secretive about your love life.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 5th January.

     
     
  • 5th January:
    Increased intuition and flashes of insight - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Capricorn harmonizing with chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. Your keen perceptive skills means that you can better understand studies of science or the occult, and even astrology. You will feel like trying sometime new, outside of your normal routine. You may also express the more unique, or quirky side of your personality.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 7th January.

     
     
  • 6th January:
    Full Moon in - arrives today at 11:08 PM, and lands on your private world and psyche! Full Moons are public (unlike New Moons which are introspective). It fairly bursts forth with energy. The emotional proclamations made now appear new and unrefined, simply because they are expressed as a burst of energy that has not yet been rationalized. Yes, they can be "loony" and sometimes "infantile", but the surge of emotional energy can spur us into healthy action nevertheless. Even though the emotional energy associated with the Full Moon seems new because it is so raw, it’s only the expression of it that is new. The truth is, the desire for change has been sitting with us for a while now, but we haven’t yet had the energy or impetus to do anything about it. That is the beauty of the Full Moon! Still, we need to be aware that there is a tendency to project our own state of restlessness or frustrations onto others. We are especially emotional now, and need to avoid blaming outside circumstances or other people for our own frustrations. An abrupt illumination will present itself - with a need for validation in your inner self, spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life.
     Circumstances are such that you have an overwhelming need to be alone. You have been busy lately with all sorts of everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It is time to balance your life with some down time otherwise, you simply don’t feel whole. Issues come to light that originate from deep within. It is an excellent time to get in touch with what's been brewing beneath the surface. A secret or private matter may be revealed, a health matter could come to light, or a work project can reach culmination.

     
     
  • 7th January:
    Thought processing, expressions, and communications - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Capricorn meeting tactful Mercury in Capricorn - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. This is a very busy day mentally. Your mind will be on the ball which favours lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and bills, receiving and sending letters and emails, and short trips around town. You want to chat and start conversations on topics that interest you - with rationality and reasoning.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 8th January.

     
     
  • 8th January:
    New possibilities, exciting news, chance encounters, eccentric or in some other way stimulating people - are in the air, when the sky observes tactful Mercury in Capricorn harmonizing with chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. This day has a very stimulating, electrifying effect on your thinking and communications. Keeping an open mind comes naturally and this increases your chance of making new discoveries and making new friends. Flashes of insight are possible when awake, or asleep through vivid dreaming.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 9th January.

     
     
  • 9th January:
    Social contact and enjoyment, and also love and dating - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Aquarius harmonizing with aggressive Mars in Gemini - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. You will genuinely be interested in friendship not just for sex but for companionship as well. Existing love relationships should also flourish and this is the ideal time to discuss any lingering tensions within a relationship. Going to parties, amusement parks or entertaining at home are all favoured.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 11th January.

     
     
  • 13th January:
    Aggressive Mars turns Direct (forward-moving) in air sign Gemini from its retrograde motion, reviving your finances and self-worth. After a period of retreat, reduced energy-level, and painful events for some - you are ready to come out of the shell. You assert yourself confidently and start to act of your desires in matters of your money, possessions, self-worth, living standards, and comforts.
     A push-pull period of some frustration in developing your assets is turning around and your ability to draw on your real income should increase. This may come partly as a result of concentrating your efforts in one area and letting other time- and energy-wasting projects go. Increasing your ability to follow through will put you one up on the situation while others are too distracted with multiple efforts to successfully compete. This will allow you to open up new avenues of communication and develop valuable contacts in the near future that will allow your single purpose to snowball.
     Mercury, Uranus - remain retrograde.

     
    And - Heightened sensitivity and ability to read people and situations, and also enhanced intuitive or psychic abilities - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Capricorn connecting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. Greater empathy and receptivity by both you and others, means that all of your relationships will benefit from a shared understanding that may be non-verbal. Do not discard insights that arrive in your dreams!
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 15th January.

     
     
  • 14th January:
    Instability in love and drama in relationships, as also unexpected urges or events - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Aquarius clashing with chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. An increased need for freedom and excitement can test your patience with a loved one or lead to wandering eyes. If you have been feeling smothered, confined or bored, then you may lash out in anger or through some other destructive behaviour. Singles may be attracted to exciting or eccentric people.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 15th January.

     
     
  • 18th January:
    Increased personal power and ability to influence outcomes, as also deep research and investigation - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Capricorn meeting transformational Pluto in Capricorn - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. You may have to deal with underhand tactics such as controlling and manipulative behaviours. It is also possible that you may experience something dramatic or upsetting - good if you do, because this is a good day to get to the bottom of any serious relationship difficulties.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 20th January.

     
     
  • 19th January:
    Tactful Mercury turns Direct (forward-moving) in fellow earth sign Capricorn from its retrograde motion, reviving your travels and experiences. It might take a week, but you are ready and confident for some upfront conversations, travels, and more importantly thoughts - especially related to your education, knowledge, travel, perspective on life, and philosophy - after a period of miscommunications and chaos that got you in a state of flux. Take some more time out, if you still feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace of events in the past few weeks.
     After a few weeks of uncertainty about the big picture, your panorama on life returns somewhat amended. False starts have led to a focus on correcting details that have distracted from the overall plan, but these are being put behind you so you can return to your former path with a steadier hand on the helm. What you are putting together now will shortly have a direct effect on what people will be saying about you and your career plans, so don’t toss off your ideas lightly. You will have the opportunity to impact your surroundings more than you think if you choose to, but you must make the choice.
     Uranus - remain retrograde.

     
     
  • 21st January:
    New Moon in - arrives today at 8:53 PM, and lands on your private world and psyche! New Moons are introspective (unlike Full Moons which are public). It is an emotional time to get in touch with your senses. A potential for renewal, or renewed emphasis, presents itself - with heightened sensitivity in your inner self, spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life.
     This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging one's spiritual and, by extension, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfilment through service, empathy, and awareness of other’s needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. This is a more sensitive position of the New Moon, and it is best to find some sort of peace for the soul in preparation for the New Moon in the first house a period that is more active and busy than this one.

     
    On this same day - Idealistic and mighty Sun in Aquarius clashes with your personal Sun. You might find you have to push a little harder at this time than you normally would. Obstacles in your path tend to arrive now, although you are capable of turning them into positive energy. Challenges you face now are actually quite revealing if you look at them as learning experiences.
     
    And then - Mighty Sun, that is eccentric and idealistic in Aquarius, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. For the next month or so, the Sun illuminates this sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your “place” or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 22nd January:
    Isolation, sadness, and privation - are in the air, when the sky observes sweet Venus in Aquarius meeting strict Saturn in Aquarius - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. You will find it difficult to express love and affection, but easy to be cold and mean. Relationships suffer the most with this influence but you can also experience some financial hardship on this day. An existing relationship may be tested by distance or separation, and a general inability to connect at the emotional level. Issues involving guilt or disloyalty may be the source of the problem.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 23rd January.

     
     
  • 23rd January:
    Chaotic Uranus turns Direct (forward-moving) in your own sign Taurus from its retrograde motion, reviving your self-presentation and views. After a period of relaxed internal changes and higher self-awareness, chaos (or a rapid change) hits back at yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook - but now, you probably have more insights, and hopefully can control this rebellious energy in a less disruptive and more constructive manner.
     
     
  • 24th January:
    Optimism, good luck, and happiness - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Aquarius connecting with optimistic Jupiter in Aries - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. Depending on whether you believe in fate or free will, you either get lucky or your positive thinking attracts good fortune. People, especially authority figures, are generous and hospitable. Today is a day of growth, and to expand your horizons.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 27th January.

     
     
  • 28th January:
    Gentle and sweet Venus in Pisces connects with your personal Sun. You are more willing, yielding, and compromising than you are typically. The aura around you is tender and caring, and others take notice. You are more interested in being around loved ones. This easy energy can also cause you to temporarily lose interest in work. It is not an ambitious energy, and some laziness or a tendency to procrastinate is possible. Sometimes, first dates occur during this transit. Relationships in general improve. This is a good time to ask for a raise or the support you need, and you might see some success on a financial level.
     
    And then - Sweet Venus, that is romantic and gentle in Pisces, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your friendships, group associations, hopes, and accomplishments. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • 29th January:
    Strength and courage, and also boost to self-confidence and enthusiasm - are in the air, when the sky observes mighty Sun in Aquarius harmonizing with aggressive Mars in Gemini - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. Increased sex drive is matched by increased charisma and magnetic charm. This is a good day to impress someone, especially an authority figure or someone special in your private life.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
    Moreover - New possibilities, exciting news, chance encounters, eccentric or in some other way stimulating people - are in the air, when the sky observes tactful Mercury in Capricorn harmonizing with chaotic Uranus in Taurus - primarily influencing your travels and experiences. This day has a very stimulating, electrifying effect on your thinking and communications. Keeping an open mind comes naturally and this increases your chance of making new discoveries and making new friends. Flashes of insight are possible when awake, or asleep through vivid dreaming.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till rest of the month, and beyond.

     
     
  • Best wishes for January 2023, as always! The overall monthly trends, along with relevant minor transits and their influences are detailed below for further reference.

 
OVERALL MONTHLY TRENDS
 

 
Central Focus, Consciousness for Jan 2023
Sun represents our concious mind - our will to live and our creative life force. It is the basis of our core personality, our style, our ego, our life purpose, and some might say, even our destiny. Sun's transit illuminates the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your focus along with it. It stays in each sign for barely a month, as it covers the entire zodiac in 365.25 days.
  • Sun, the luminary of self, continues to illuminate the sector of your solar chart that rules philosophies and far countries - until 20th January. During this influence, you focus on your outer world, and seek to sway yourself away from personal concerns, and shift your focus to turn outwards.
    + Show Details
    Till 20th January, Sun transits your House IX: Travelling, and philosophies of life.
     
    During this cycle, you seek to expand your experiences and awareness, whether through philosophical thinking, higher education, travel, or simply activities that take you away from your everyday routines.
     
    You may feel a little restless if you don't find ways to explore. It is an excellent period for looking at your life from a different perspective - a broader one - whether you initiate this process or you make contact with others who stimulate you to think about your circumstances differently.
     
    Your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last few months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith.
     
    This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now.
     
    A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself.
     
    The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with managing everyday affairs and important details.
  • From 21st January onwards, Sun spotlights the sector of your solar chart that rules occupation and calling - for the rest of the month. During this influence, you focus on profession, and seek to energize your career, reputation, accomplishments, and your standing in the outer world.
    + Show Details
    21st January onwards, Sun transits your House X: Reputation, occupation, and calling.
     
    During this cycle, satisfaction and fulfillment come from doing your professional best, shining as a responsible and capable person, and contributing to the world in practical ways.
     
    More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. You might have a chance to receive acknowledgement or praise for your work or good character now.
     
    Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts.
     
    More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Landing support from authority figures is easier at this time. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it!
     
    Avoid the pitfalls of pride or arrogance standing in your way of success. Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

 
Love, Social Life, Comfort, Pleasure for Jan 2023
Venus represents two main areas of our life - love and money. It is the basis of our sentiments, what we value, and the pleasure we take in life, our tastes, our pleasures, our artistic inclinations, and what makes us happy. Venus' transit graces the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your sensations and experiences along with it. It stays in each sign for less than a month, as it covers the entire zodiac in 225 days.
  • Venus, the planet of luxury, continues to grace the sector of your solar chart that rules philosophies and far countries - until 3rd January. This influence expands your horizons, inspiring you to exotic takes, and making you enjoy a trip or a new adventure of sorts.
    + Show Details
    Till 3rd January, Venus transits your House IX: Travelling, and philosophies of life.
     
    You have a taste for the exotic now that can show up in many areas of your life - who you are attracted to, what you buy, the kind of art or entertainment you enjoy, and so forth!
     
    Routine affairs simply don't seem to satisfy. You receive pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, both physically and mentally. Foreign people and places may particularly appeal now. You tend to be expansive and generous when it comes to love. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle.
     
    Your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. A love interest who attracts you during this cycle may be somebody who you previously wouldn't consider attractive, or someone whose cultural background is very different than yours. You have a taste for the exotic and the spirit to match. If a romance were to begin now, it is more likely to be with someone of a different background or educational level, or someone you meet through travel.
     
    Public relations work, promotion, and other such endeavours are favoured now. It is more about how you express yourself than the specifics of what you are saying that helps sway others to your position. There could be especial rapport with foreigners and with women if you are travelling during this period. You are all the more attractive and charming with this position, which increases your popularity.
     
    You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds.
     
    It is a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.
  • From 4th January onwards, Venus boosts the sector of your solar chart that rules occupation and calling - until 27th January. This influence favours your negotiations or social activities related to career and business, mixing work with pleasure.
    + Show Details
    4th January to 27th January, Venus transits your House X: Reputation, occupation, and calling.
     
    This may be a time when you are especially enjoying your career or position, and making the most of it!
     
    Relationships with authority figures, superiors, and with the public are in focus during this cycle. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favourable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business.
     
    During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come through your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner.
     
    It is a strong period for diplomatic relations, although a negative expression of this position could be bending over backwards to please rather than positive, friendly relations. It is a time when being a team player reaps the most rewards, and you may be mixing business with pleasure now.
     
    People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.
  • From 28th January onwards, Venus boosts the sector of your solar chart that rules friends and acquaintances - for the rest of the month. This influence forms harmonious and warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club or a common cause.
    + Show Details
    28th January onwards, Venus transits your House XI: Social activities, friends, and acquaintances.
     
    This is a strong time for putting your ego aside and lowering your defences, and simply enjoying people!
     
    Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle.
     
    It is a good time for networking and settling disputes if there are differences to iron out with friends. Cooperation comes easily, and warm friendships can be made during this cycle. Personal freedom is especially important to you right now, and you won't enjoy any associations that limit you.
     
    You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.
     
    It can also be a good time for earnings from business.

 
Communications, Connections, Transportation for Jan 2023
Mercury represents our day-to-day expression and communication. It is the basis of the way we think, the way we connect with others, and the way we communicate with others - decidedly unemotional and curious.

    For the entire period, Mercury transits your House IX: Travelling, and philosophies of life.
     
    Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind turns to bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals!
     
    You are inclined to take a broader look at things now, rather than concentrate on the details. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture.
     
    During this cycle, you are especially fond of exchanging ideas with others, particularly your personal philosophies. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life.
     
    You are communicating with more persuasiveness, enthusiasm, and optimism at this time.
     
    Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now.
  • However, from 1st January to 18th January, when Mercury is retrograde (backward-moving), you may misadvanture or miscommunicate, and may be thinking backwards - especially in matters of travelling, and philosophies of life.

 
Energy, Drive, Courage for Jan 2023
Mars represents our energy, action, and sexual desire. It is the basis of our spontaneous reaction to act, and our survival instincts - the animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. Mars' transit asserts the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your natural desire along with it. It stays in each sign for almost two months, as it covers the entire zodiac in 1,9 years.
  • Mars, the planet of vitality, continues to energize the sector of your solar chart that rules money, possessions, and values - for the entire month. This influence energizes your money-making efforts, or in making your life more comfortable and secure.

    For the entire period, Mars transits your House II: Money, possessions, and values.
     
    You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values!
     
    This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You tend to put more effort into making money or making your life more comfortable and secure during this cycle.
     
    Your strong desire to be financially independent could lead to positive things, such as paying off debts or increased enterprise. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself (your worth) to others using money and possessions as the means to do so.
     
    You are more protective of the way you earn or spend money, as well as with the values you live your life by, and if others question you about these things, there could be arguments. If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership.
     
    The opposite side of the coin is asserting your independence by making impulsive purchases or taking risks with your money. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.
  • However, from 1st January to 12th January, when Mars is retrograde (backward-moving), you may lack energy or motivation - especially in matters of money, possessions, and values.
