I think it’s safe to say that 2021 was quite an intense year for everyone, and we’re all still recovering. However, with the coming of January, the notorious 2021 is now officially over, and we’ve begun our next yearly chapter in the powerful year of 2022, which is likely to offer many changes within us and around us. With that said, we will be entering the new year with the leading Zodiac sign, Capricorn, as our guide, allowing us to move swiftly into new beginnings with a refreshing burst of clarity and creative energy. This will be occurring alongside the planet Jupiter which will be navigating itself through the sentimental Pisces sign, urging expansion and change in our lives, which is likely to stir some deep emotional reflection with us.
Aside from this, the new year will also carry us through the core of Venus retrograde, which started back in December 2021, and will linger with us until the end of the month. Therefore, as this powerful planet of love moves in retrograde, this is likely to stir changes between lovers, either pulling them closer or pushing them further apart. For this reason, love will need to be navigated very carefully over the next few weeks to avoid any major issues. And, finally, to top it all off, Mercury retrograde will be returning on January 14th, which is likely to take the signs through a trip down memory lane as we work to cleanse away things from the past to fully embrace the present moment. This could have us feeling a little irritable and frustrated over the next few weeks. However, it will ultimately serve as the perfect way to help us leave the past in the past for good and embrace all the healing that the new year has to offer.
Overall, to sum it all up, January 2022 is bound to be rich in a plethora of new energies all related to cleansing, rebirth, realignment, and self-care. But to give you a better idea of what you can expect personally, in this article, we’re going to go over a brief summary of January for each of the Zodiac signs to help you better understand what you can expect, as well as how you can make the most of it. Let’s begin.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Starting first with the Aries, January 2022 is predicted to be full of change and transformation for you. While you’ll likely begin the year feeling an ambitious boost towards new opportunities, you may also find yourself stuck in a reflective cycle that is urging you to slow down. I think it’s safe to say that sometimes you forget how to rest, Aries. And while hustling can be good, if you do it at a constant, you’re bound to crash. Therefore, more than anything, this month is offering you a slower approach to the new year, asking you to prioritize rest and planning rather than seeking action.
In your career, just like we mentioned above, the energies of this month are asking you to take your time in the workplace. While you likely already have your eyes set on a certain goal you’re looking to reach in your job, patience is needed this month, as the slow-moving energies are asking to focus on making a solid plan now rather than pushing yourself to the extremes. While it may seem unnecessary, it is sure to help you have better success in your job in the near future. Therefore, take your time, mighty ram. You’ll get there soon enough.
In love, for those in a relationship, the year may start with you feeling a little unsatisfied or unhappy in love for a number of reasons. However, the energies of January are here to help you rebuild that connection with your partner once again. Therefore, make sure you make plenty of time to spend quality time with your partner this month with open communication if you want to improve your love life. If you are single, reflection will be a big theme for you this month, as you may ponder the potential of a more long-term relationship instead of flings like you’re used to. Take your time thinking about what you truly want out of love, Aries. There’s no need to rush.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
For the Taurus, as an earth sign, you’ll likely start the year off seeking balance after the intense year we had last year. However, thankfully, January is allowing you to transition into the new year at your own pace, putting an emphasis on self-care and small steps to help you do so. More than anything, this is a time of slowing down and planning ahead for your year, asking yourself what you wish to accomplish and align with. Above all else, January will be good for some ‘you’ time to help you focus on all your wants and needs. As a result, don’t feel a need to make any big moves right now; just rest.
In your career, you’ll likely start the year off feeling inspired in your job this month, as ideas just seem to flow to you endlessly. However, you may have some trouble feeling confident in executing them. Don’t get discouraged, Taurus. You have so much potential to offer the world and your job. Don’t be afraid to give it your all and chase after it.
In love, for people in a relationship, January is predicted to restore harmony to relationships once more due to the influence of the planet of love, Venus. As a result, this would be a great time to rekindle old flames, plan a date, or spend an intimate night at home with your partner. For those who are single, you may be guilty of settling for less than you deserve in the past, but now, the empowering energies of January are telling you to put your foot down and do what’s best for you. It’s time to figure out what you want out of your love life and start chasing it. Don’t settle.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
For Gemini, January is predicted to create a more level foundation for you to walk on after the difficult year you had in 2021.

All around, things should be looking up for you, Gem, and you’ll likely begin to feel more inspired, grounded, and ambitious than you have in a while. Keep up the great work!
In your career, all around, work should be positive for you this month as you begin to feel a more ambitious stride in your job, boosting your productivity. As a result, this is likely to get you closer to achieving something you’ve been longing for in the workplace or may even help to get you to the next level. Either way, things are predicted to run smoothly, and you shouldn’t have anything to complain about.
In love, for people in a relationship, this month is likely to be an inspiring month for lovers, as the stars align for a more intimate connection between partners. However, be sure to avoid any arguments that arise as much as possible, as Venus retrograde is sure to boost tension between partners. Patience will be necessary in order to get through this. For those that are single, January, you’re likely feeling pretty confident in your charm these days with the refreshing boost of energy from the new year on your side, and that’s likely to reflect in your love life. For this reason, this is an excellent time to put yourself out there and meet someone new. Just don’t get too cocky, Gem, as this may take a turn for the worst and may spoil any love connections you may already have.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
For Cancer, without a doubt, last year definitely took a toll on your mental health, and you’re likely still recovering from it, and we don’t blame you. However, January 2022 is looking up once again and is likely to bring a more balanced environment into your space. With Jupiter and other major planets influencing you this month, January will likely offer you the chance to grow and expand in your life once more, finally leaving all things negatively influencing your life behind you. Truly, this month is beaming with an opportunity to align and start over, so don’t be afraid to seize it while it’s here.

Your mind is rich with ideas on how to improve your work-life and how to strive to be better in it, and you’re ready to embrace it fully. However, just be sure not to work yourself too much, Cancer, as pushing yourself too hard may leave you feeling down. Pace yourself.
In love, for people in a relationship, Venus is likely to set an intimate tone between partners this month, allowing you two to indulge each other in affection as well as expand your communication with talk of the future. If you are single, your confidence is up this month, and as a result, you shouldn’t have any problem attracting a new partner. However, just make sure your heart is ready for love right now, Cancer, as some self-care practices may be the best option now to mend your heart before seeking a new love.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
For Leo, January 2022 is predicted to bring a positive month of fulfillment and self-work into your space. While the month all-around should be positive, it is also likely to bring a change of perspective into your space, which could require some adjustment on your part.

In love, for those in a relationship, January is predicted to bring changes to your love life. Thanks to the influence of Venus retrograde, lovers are likely to re-examine different areas of their lives this month, as a need for compromise and change may be at hand. Either way, Venus is asking you to work to mend the broken areas of your life now, and while it may be tedious, it is certainly necessary for your growth as a couple. For those who are single, inner reflection and self-care practices are likely going to be big themes for you this month. For that reason, love may not be a huge focus; however, that doesn’t mean it isn’t out there.

In love, those in a relationship would do well to spend a little more time together this month, as the movements of the planets are creating a more intimate environment for lovers.

Libra (September 23 – October 22):
For Libra, January 2022 is likely to kick off with new beginnings for you.

More than anything, it’s time to expand yourself in new directions, Libra, and what better time than right now to do it? Keep up the great work!
In your career, with a new attitude on life in general and a better attitude for taking control of your own happiness, your career this month is likely to offer you several new opportunities that you may not have considered in the past but are doing so now. With so many changes happening around you, following your heart will be essential to finding the right way to go. Don’t be afraid to try something new, Libra.
In love, for people in a relationship, you may be moving into the new month feeling a little out of it in love. This could be due to issues with your partner or a recent argument.

Don’t forget that.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
For the Scorpio, January 2022 is predicted to bring about new change and opportunities into your space. However, the start of the month could honestly be a bit rough for you as you work to navigate a new path and work on recovering from the last year you had. Patience and baby steps will be your guiding light this month as you carefully navigate your way ahead into alignment. Take your time, Scorp. There’s to need to rush.
In your career, outside of the changes taking place in your life overall right now, your career life is likely to be positive and bursting with all kinds of new ideas and inspiration.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
For Sagittarius, this first month of the year will likely offer you the chance to start anew with a total reset. Now more than ever, you likely have a much clearer vision of all of the things that have been holding you back in the past and are ready to actively work to let them go to align more presently with who you are now. Above all else, your mind should be much clearer than it has been in the past, and this will ultimately help you see your goals more clearly. You’re on the right path, Sag. Allow your heart to lead the way.
In your career, overall, work should be steady this month, but you may find yourself feeling easily agitated in the workplace, likely due to the changes taking place in other areas of your life. It’s okay, Sag; this isn’t likely to cause any major problems for you at work. However, you should try to keep your cool as much as possible if you want to avoid any issues to begin with.
In love, for those in a relationship, reflection is likely to be a big theme for lovers this month as you reflect upon your love life thus far as well as the future it holds. For this reason, now should be an excellent time to share talk of your future together and start aligning your goals as a team for a deeper connection. For those who are single, with Venus influencing you this month, your heart is likely to be yearning for new love, and, as a result, you may start to see it everywhere you go.

More than ever, it’s time to stop waiting for something good to happen to you, Cap, and start putting the work in to make it happen for you. Above all else, freedom from an unfilling life is likely to be a big theme for you now as you work to come into better alignment than you have in a while. Keep up the great work, Cap!
In your career, with such a fiery inspiration guiding you at the start of the month, you should have no problem achieving new things with haste, as you may find yourself rising to a more independent role in the workplace. While this may not necessarily mean a promotion, your attitude is certainly changing, which could have you considering other things, such as new job opportunities as well as a job more aligned with your mentality now. Either way, you are advised to let your heart guide you in whatever way you feel is right if you want to create a more fulfilling life.
In love, for people in a relationship, satisfaction is likely to be your key theme this month, as your connection with your partner should be feeling quite comfortable. All around, communication, lust, and sensuality should all be beaming this month, and you aren’t likely to have much to complain about.

As a result, it may be time to step up your game in the love department and make yourself a little more available if you want to create a lasting connection with someone special.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
For the Aquarius, the new year is likely to offer a period of change and growth for you. Reflection, adjustment, and alignment are all likely to be keywords for you this month, as you aim to let go of the past and move forward with the refreshing energy of the new year. Although, with that said, as a result of working through past feelings, you may find yourself feeling a bit down and may get caught up in your emotions. But don’t worry, this is only temporary, Aquarius, and should soon pass. However, you also don’t have to go it alone and should try to use this time to connect more with the people around you if you want to make the situation easier on you overall.
In your career, new ideas and visions are likely to spend some time in your job area this month, pushing you to strive harder and dream a little bigger to bring these things to fruition. As a result, you shouldn’t have any problems completing all of your work-related goals. Keep up the great work, Aquarius.
In love, for people in a relationship, you could find yourself feeling a little disconnected in love matter this month, which may stir some friction with your partner. As a result, you may have to try a little harder to create a connection this month, but having someone close certainly wouldn’t be a bad idea with all that’s going on. For those who are single, love may not be a big focus for you this month as a result of all the things happening around you. Therefore, seeking to just work on loving yourself this month may be the best thing to do right now.
Pisces (February 19 – March 10):
And lately, for the Pisces, the new year is likely to bring change and a new perspective into your space. This could have you feeling the need to cleanse away the old and bring in the new with a job change, changes in love, or in the way that you act and think. Either way, change is all around you this month, and it will likely serve to be a truly enlightening experience for you. Above all else, your intuition will be your best friend right now, so make sure you allow it to guide you towards the path you’re meant to be on.

For those who are single, with positive influences in love, confidence and charm should come naturally to you this month. As a result, you should have no problem winning someone over if you so desire. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, Pisces.
In conclusion, the start of the new year is likely to bring the signs through a much-needed period of stillness and rest as we all gear up for a powerful and transformative year ahead.
