We start the new year with a new moon in sidereal Sagittarius on 2 January 2022. Thoughts will be focused on overcoming adversity. The lunar cycle (2 January – 30 January 2022) will be a good time to confront personal challenges that may have become illuminated during the December eclipse.
The new moon is in the masculine side of Jupiter. Consider what your sacral chakra needs at this time. Balance that polarity with working with the throat chakra (Gemini).
Mercury and Venus retrograde are transiting Sagittarius. Reflect on your values and relationships. Question your commitment to social circles and whether or not your experiences feed your passions.
