Welcome to January 2023, Gemini. At the end of December, you saw yourself celebrating New Year’s Eve, even if it came with a Mercury retrograde. Thankfully, your ruling planet goes direct this month (as does Mars and Uranus). But first, you find yourself reconsidering your approach to love when romantic Venus enters Aquarius and your 9th House of Philosophy on Monday, January 2. Even if you don’t celebrate New Year’s too much, there’s something about a fresh start that can leave everyone feeling introspective. You, Gemini, may be considering trying a different relationship format, stepping back from dating, or eager to explore kink and fantasies.
Friday, January 6, brings a full moon in Cancer and your 2nd House of Possessions. While this aspect of your chart is associated with money, unfortunately, no astrologer can promise cash in this economy. With that in mind, it is an astrologically lucky day for abundance. However, there’s another meaning. Our 2nd House of Possessions contains our emotions, as we certainly own (or should) those. As full moons mark culmination, this lunation could indicate that you’re finally owning, or taking responsibility, for a desire. And yes, following themes earlier in the month, this weekend could see you expressing a need to switch up your sex and dating routine.
Just keep in mind that Mars, the warrior planet, is retrograde until Thursday, January 12. So, if you’ve been feeling a little less sexual than usual (or assertive at work), that should change once Mars goes direct.
Overall, Gemini, January is a month for you to slow down, get caught up from the holidays, and pause before you make any significant life changes. Independent Aquarius season begins on Friday, January 20. The next day, there’s a new moon in Aquarius on Saturday, January 21, and your 9th House of Philosophy. While the sun is in Aquarius, you’re feeling introspective. In addition to love, you may be rethinking your approach to work and even spirituality.
Back in August, the ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus, went retrograde. When this happened, the stars also asked you to reasses your social circle and make sure that you’re not basing too much of your self-worth on other people’s opinions. As a result, when the planet goes direct on Sunday, January 22, you also may be adjusting to positive changes in your self-esteem and, as a result, who you hang out with. Thankfully, when loving Venus enters caring Pisces and your 10th House of Social Status on Thursday, January 26, you see yourself having fun with new friends or trusted established ones you consider your ride-or-dies. This is a lot to mentally process, Gemini. As a result, in addition to enjoying the changes that January brings, make sure to carve out time for self-care to process them. See you in February!
