The astrology of the week ahead has us in full-on rebirth mode! 

As we begin the first week of  January, we are still under the vibrations of the New Moon in Capricorn. As the first lunation of the year happens in the ambitious sign of Capricorn, it’s focusing our attention on themes of goals, career, and maybe even money. 

But because it is activating Venus retrograde, it makes the beginning of the week ideal for meditating on success, how we go about it, and our relationship to it. In fact, this entire week is the perfect time to understand any negative patterns and/or preconceived notions around these themes. What does success mean to you? Both, collectively as well as personally, it’s time to transform how we approach it! 

On a lighter note, we have some dreamy astrological aspects for both romance as well as self-care. From Wednesday to Friday, the Moon will be in the compassionate sign of Pisces, providing easy and dreamy vibes. If a relationship has been under siege, the week ahead could provide some much-needed healing. 

This week also brings the rebirth of Venus as the love goddess gets illuminated by the Sun. For us earthlings, this means an absolute reset in the way we approach all Venusian things: love, romance, and pleasure. From now until October, our collective approach to these topics will be more grounded and committed.
