Weekly Astrology Forecast – January 2 – 8, 2023

We have our first lunation of the year with the Full Moon in Cancer this week. Matters connected to home and family and what it means to feel safe and supported are uppermost. But we also have a repeating story  that asks us to explore our self-image and to enquire whether we have been holding ourselves back because we feel weak or at fault or incapable. Old wounds require some TLC. The movement of Venus into Aquarius along with trines from the Sun-Mercury conjunction to Uranus all point to a lightbulb moment that liberates our thinking. Now there is a bridge between the old you and the new you. Suddenly, there is a tantalising scent of new experiences to savour, new people to encounter. The heart swells with gratitude – as does perhaps our social circle. With all these good people around, maybe there is a way through those blockages or problems after all. A dream that began back in May 2022 is about to be realised, perhaps a smaller version of what we first hoped for but nonetheless important. Sometimes all we need is a little confirmation that the universe is listening. Be alert to sudden downloads.
