January Monthly Horoscope - Aries


Dear Aries, the Solar Eclipse on the 5th influences your career, your public image, your relationship with authority, structure and external limitations. It’s not an easy time, as you’re naturally inclined to have things your own spontaneous, impulsive way; this period might seem limiting. Be mindful of what role authority plays in your life and how you can shift towards becoming your own authority in a healthy, assertive way, shedding away the things that no longer serve you.

Venus entering Sagittarius on the 7th marks the start of a period when you’re supported to explore, laugh and take risks (wisely), especially when it comes to relationships and finances. The next month is also a good time to travel! On the 13th, the Mercury-Saturn conjunction supports you to come up with practical ideas at your workplace. Try to see challenges from authority figures as ways to improve your assertiveness. The 18th might be a particularly intense day- be mindful of how you express your desire for independence, your inner fire against the walls that you encounter. What do those walls have to teach you? On the 20th, the Sun entering Aquarius marks the start of a more detached, intellectual time when you’re supported to meet up with friends and invest energy in your social or avant-garde interests.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 21st shows how you’ve been expressing your inner child and your inner royalty for these past months, often against resistance from the outside. At the peak of this cycle of creativity, you’re encouraged to reach a conclusion and continue walking a path where you can honor your authenticity more. It’s not going to be easy as tempers might flare up and you might be feeling more stubborn than ever with Mars in your sign, but this moment also offers you tremendous energy to move forward. On the 22nd, the Venus-Jupiter conjunction can bring some playful fire in your life- be daring, take risks when it comes to love or finances, go on a little adventure. Finally, on the 31st, some of the previous tension melts as Saturn’s sextile with Neptune softens outer limitations and supports you to envision your career path more clearly.
