Monthly HoroscopeJanuary 2023
You’ll be picking up momentum as the month progresses, Aries. Mars, your planetary ruler, will station direct on January 12, and by January 22, all the inner and outer planets will be moving forward. This isn’t your cue to race ahead at full speed, however. We’ll be clearing the shadow phase of both Mars and Mercury retrograde in the coming weeks, so it will be important to proceed with caution. But, you will feel more confident initiating new action during the last part of the month as we move towards February. Take small steps and pace yourself.
On January 2, Venus will ingress into Aquarius, where it will remain through January 25. During these days you could be more in demand socially, and it will be a favorable time to make new connections. You could feel especially energized by joining a new group or participating in a volunteer activity. If single, you could meet someone interesting in a group setting or through your circle of friends.
On January 6, we’ll have a Full Moon at 16 degrees Cancer, highlighting your home and family life. Home-related projects could come to fruition around this time. It could also bring important issues with family members to light. Emotions could be strong on the day of the Full Moon. Plan to have important discussions a few days after the Full Moon. You may have a valuable realization about what you need for your own sense of security.
Mars will station direct on January 12, completing a cycle that began on October 30, 2022. While we won’t clear the shadow phase of this phenomenon until March 15, 2023, we will finally have astrological support to take some steps towards new goals. Because your sign is ruled by Mars, you could still experience complications as you move into new agreements and projects. Your best bet will be to double check the details and take extra care with your communications.
Mercury will station direct on January 18, and you’re apt to feel more in the flow after this date. The shadow phase of Mercury retrograde lasts until February 23, so keep things slow and steady as you move ahead. You can make progress in the coming months as long as you check in frequently with others to make sure you’re on the same page.
This month’s New Moon will be on January 21 at 1 degree Aquarius. All Aries folks can use the New Moon energy to set intentions related to friendships, community projects, humanitarian efforts, and their big picture dreams and goals. If you have Aries rising, this could be your Granddaddy Power Period, which is the most powerful time of the year for manifestation.

On January 22, Uranus will station direct, ending a cycle that began on August 24, 2022. The coming months could be a particularly strong time for you to move ahead with some new ideas that have been brewing related to your finances. Changes in your job, or the ways you save or spend money are likely on the horizon.
