We are down one retrograde, and we have two more! It’s been an interesting start to the new year, but The best week will be shared by three zodiac signs who are lucky January 16-22. Do you sense the change in momentum?

After spending about three months back-spinning through curious Gemini, go-getter Mars *finally* stationed direct last week. The best part? Savvy Mercury—planet of communication, miscellanies and immediate exchanges, which just so happens to be Gemini’s planetary ruler—will follow Mars’ footsteps in the week ahead, as will change-maker Uranus!

It’s time to get back to business as usual. Whether it be with regards to your professional due diligence, or perhaps important paperwork that’s been pending, Mercury retrograde in Capricorn (along with Mars retrograde, of course) is to blame for slowing things down these past three weeks. However, you’re in for a treat, as the mischievous messenger planet will officially station direct on January 18. Its forward motion will bring back our daily lives and help us understand the Mars retrograde delays. For instance, if there has been an ongoing thought and/or exchange that’s been keeping you stagnant, this is where you become clear on what and who are worthy of your time. The same goes for professional responsibilities that you’ve recently taken on—are you fully committed to putting in the necessary effort? 

January 18 could be incredibly cathartic, especially when considering the sun’s close proximity to transformative Pluto, as we are gaining awareness that could potentially change everything. Aquarius, the new sign that will represent the sun’s debut, is a good example of how it could be. January 20 followed by the new moon of the same sign on the next day. The Energy will be grounding, sophisticated and rebellious to progressive. With Uranus stationed direct on our planet, conventionality is out of the question. January 22, the change you’ve been longing for is closer than you think!

ItIs your sun sign rising? happens to fall under any of The below zodiac signs, here’s why you’re getting the ball rolling this week:
