The sun and Venus retrograde connect today in Capricorn. This is the most important day of the retrograde because it gives Venus the vitality and support needed to attain money, love, and confidence.
This aspect is called cazimi, which means in the “heart of the sun.” Because the sun is the vital force that gives life and energy to all of us, we can expect wonderful things to happen throughout the day. If you were thinking about going on a date, asking someone out, or pushing for a raise or promotion at work, now is the time to do so. We might also contemplate what the future holds for our romantic companions and friends.
If you are unsure about what you want moving forward, use today to help you figure out what you desire. You don’t have to make any decisions right away, but you will be able to understand what the future holds and how you can get what you want. If you’re longing to invest in the stock market, this is a great time to do that or play the lottery. Although you might not win big, it can send you in the right direction to help you achieve your goals in the future.
Venus reaches the inferior conjunction this afternoon, shortly after the Moon’s conjunction with Chiron. Determination may look more like obstinance and defiance today. Unfortunately, delusion may also be a part of the picture if we aren’t able to deal with the actual facts but rather, hold tightly to an untenable position. The question seems to boil down to the purpose and validity of the restrictions we are facing. It may simply be a matter of our individual perspective. If we truly believe that the restrictions we are facing are arbitrary and spurious, then taking a stand may be our only option. Ultimately, this seems to be about doing some soul searching and finding ways to make a meaningful response to what may seem to be an intractable situation.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
JAN 9: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN ARIES: The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.
JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
