Welcome to Launchpad January
Take fun seriously again
Refine those dreams this retro cycle
Revelations lead to release as the New Year begins for you, Virgo. These insights may however trickle down and take time to appear. Or you have to mulch and integrate what you are being shown, told and intuit before you see that big picture. This may well revolve around love, your children, or even what unpins your entire sense of security. Make no mistake, this could be both mojo/foundation shaking – and creating all at the same time.
The emphasis as the year starts is very much on your 5th house of what makes your fabulous, fierce and free. Please don’t forget we begin ‘22 with Venus still retrograde in here until the 29th. Hold off on that swiping or even spending if you can. Attend to love in the present and in all its other forms such as creative self expression and what you love to do. Take existing love to the next level by all means thanks to Juno also in this house. An old lover could even reappear. Perhaps with new intentions and freshly sparkling relevance.
Ruler Mercury will turn retrograde in its ruling 6th on the 14th. You don’t need me to tell you to shore up those retroactive rules and be extra OCD about following them. The 20th sees the Sun arrive in here putting a month long focus on all things Virgo-centric. But there’s a special hidden message for you in this and that’s linked to doing things every day and every way YOUR way, Virgo. You don;t have to sacrifice indivuduality or your personal style to get things done efficiently. In fact, your way is your superpower now.
Time to become the s/heroic super-person of routine reinvention from the 14th and especially on the 23rd when the Sun and retrofactor Mercury meet. Inject that day job, your environment and those habits with the pure energy of uplifting revision and renewal. And feel that everyday buzz that energies again. But let’s go explore the other retroactive house of your 5th which along with your 9th contains keys to freedom and hidden treasures this January.
Is it time for an image update, Virgo? Because of the retro action in your house of pleasure, reinvention of you could reawaken that inner platfulness, sensuality and also a desire to spoil yourself. Within reason of course with Venus backwards! Refine and realign to that inner gorgeousness especially once Mercury backs up into your 5th from the 26th and Venus breaks its retro love fast from the 29th.
In the interim, we have a full Moon in your 11th on the 17th throwing a spotlight onto the future of that self-expression and your connections which raise the roof on your happiness, Virgo. This is a Snow or Wolf Moon and as you know, full Moons reflect their light back into the house opposing the one they are in. So, in this case your 5th. If you need to Fab Five yourself, you’ll see clearly which areas need that update. Others will see lovers, children, friendships and hobbies highlighted. Also the truth around whether or not you are in fact denying yourself fun, pleasure and enjoyment. Has something simply become too serious? Or don’t you take making time for good stuff as seriously as you do everything else, Virgo? Schedule the pleasure under this full Moon.
One major mutable cycle closes now and a new, more grounded fate opens up to you. But one which at the same time offers up freedom, exploration and learning opportunities. First Uranus heads direct in your freedom sector on the 18th. Then the next day the North Node enters here. It’s been 19 years since it was last in this house in your chart. If you were 18 or over back then, look back at themes around travel, foreigners, mass media, learning, religion, the law, sports, animals and sheer breathtaking door-opening opportunity. It’s now back again. If you are experiecing this for the first time, then expect one, some or even all these themes to present themselves in a smogasbord of choices designed to open up your world.
Knock knock -opportunity and the world is calling
Where does this start right now? Knowing your values and what you will and won’t settle for, Virgo. This includes not settling for less and being unafraid to throw something back into the great cosmic fish pond when it doesn’t quite measure up. Cast your net wider and understand if your dream hasn’t come true its because you need a bigger one. For those of you going through this cycle a second or even a third time, expect things begun 19 years or even 38 years ago to come full circle or repeat in some way.
The Sun’s entry into your 6th refocuses you on your daily duties to others and most importantly, yourself. Wellbeing should be your priority for the next month. In other words, taking care of the business of living and working your best.
The 30th brings a key meeting between Jupiter now in your status sector and Eros – asteroid of the well-aimed arrows and passionate intent. That larger target I spoke of can come within striking distance now as Jupiter is intent on bigging up your professional opportunities and offering you a helping hand up that career ladder this year. You could take aim at a better position or even path now. One that inspires and ignites those ambitions. Aim higher and prepare to go further as we head into February. January is simply your preparation launchpad, Virgo.
In a nutshell: You’re the retro boss, Virgo so this month, show the world just how you can get the revisionary reinvention energy working in your favour! January tells you to prepare that launchpad. The rest of ‘22 takes you higher!
