Venus, which is retrograde in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Pisces share a lovely minor connection after lunchtime. This can give us a fresh start in the afternoon because it allows us to feel a sense of hopefulness and tenderness. Our creative sense, imagination, and heart could run wild. The downside to this transit is that we might overindulge a little in our own emotions.
When Neptune in Pisces and the Capricorn sun connect in the evening, it might make us want to have an early night. Instead of going out, we might want to stay home and rest. While we might be tempted, alcohol isn’t advised because of this cosmic energy leaving us feeling a bit paranoid. Rather than watching old movies that you’ve seen a million times, feed your imagination by losing yourself in a new book.
Today’s Taurus Moon and the evening’s shift of Vesta from Sagittarius to Capricorn seems to signal a building dissatisfaction with high minded idealism — platitudes — and a growing focus on bringing forward something real. “Don’t tell me, show me“. Actually, the timing of our shift in focus seems highly auspicious. The Capricorn Sun’s sextile to Neptune helps us to combine intuitive inspiration and powerful determination. Today’s aggressive tendencies aren’t likely to push us too far or bring conflict but rather, encourage us to push directly on the boundaries that are holding us back. In some sense or another, we begin to feel the wind at our backs.

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.
What’s weighing you down? Is it time for a spiritual and psychic cleansing? Are you overdue for letting go of the voices that surround you? They may have started to get into your head, these voices that bog you down and keep you from leaping forward into a better situation.
Let others croak and create their dramas while you make space for yourself and for hearing your own thoughts as they arise. Declutter your schedule and stop trying to do it all and then some. Let others manage their own baggage rather than allowing it to be dumped on you, for your lily pad needs to be clear of others’ clutter.
Frog Spirit may also come bearing a message about your physical space. Do you hold on to things because you are afraid of losing your energetic connection to the past, to people who are no longer in your life, or to goals you never pursued? Or could you have these items around because you would feel guilty if you got rid of them?
Are your storage and living spaces stuffed with reminders of what you are not, when they should be holding only objects that reflect who you are and aspire to be? If something is no longer making you feel joyful, empowered, and excited, Frog Spirit is telling you to let it go and free yourself to leap forward into something new, trusting you will always have what you need.
