Weekly Astrology Forecast January 9 – 15, 2023

Many of the aspects this week point to an assessment of our relationships. Venus reaches out to Mars, connecting the lovers of the zodiac. Old flames, new acquaintances, questions around what it means to be a friend are all in the air. Mars, stationing direct, also brings an end to a troubling dilemma or conflict but we may not see evidence of a shift for another couple of weeks until Mars leaves his station degree. One last time – patience, patience, patience.

Another challenging story of the week surrounds how we deal with differences between us, how far we will go to keep the peace or maintain our integrity. The last turn in the lunar cycle at the end of the week suggests we need to keep healthy boundaries and give ourselves permission to stand by our truth.
