Aries Weekly horoscope for Jan 17 to Jan 23, 2022
When the week begins with the first Full Moon of the year underway this is going to grab your attention from the start. Monday's Full Moon is not just the first Full Moon of 2022 but the first in your home and family sector since 2020. With no planetary activity on the home front, this is the boost that home and family matters have been waiting for but also a chance to demand your attention. This is a Full Moon that will always put pressure on the Sun in your career sector and as a result, this can create some professional pressure or work/life balance tension. However, while the Sun will leave your career sector on Thursday, with Venus turning direct and Mars returning next week, it is next week when this new professional year will really take off. This brings the right work/life balance reminders at the right time, with the Moon continuing that theme as it goes on to spend the middle of the working week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart.
Love & Romance
The Moon is making its first visits to both your romantic and relationship sectors for the year this week, with Monday's Full Moon the perfect gatekeeper. This is a Full Moon that will put a balance between your home and professional lives to the test, as the Moon wants to keep the focus on things close to home and the Sun on the things that keep you busy. These work/life balance reminders will be delivered just before the Moon returns for its first visit to your romantic sector for the year on Tuesday. With romantically charged lunar vibes in play in the heart of the working week, having the right work/life balance couldn't be more important. Meanwhile, it is over the weekend that the Moon will return for its first visit to your relationship sector for the year, with a chance to become more emotionally engaged and connected. With no planetary activity in either, the Moon's first visits couldn't be more important.
Business & Career
While the Sun, in his final days in your career sector, is being confronted by Monday's Full Moon and this might create some professional pressure or work/life balance tension at the start of the week, the timing couldn't be better. The Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your career sector and at some point the Moon will return to your home and family sector as a Full Moon, putting your work/life balance to the test. The last time this happened was in late 2020, so these work/life balance reminders are long overdue. What makes the timing auspicious is that it is next week that the pace is really going to pick up, with these reminders coming at a relatively quiet point in this new professional year. It is just 12 hours after the Sun leaves your career sector on Thursday that the Moon will return for its first visit to your work sector for the year, ending the week on a positive note across the income, work and career fronts.
This is one week when you can't judge a book by its cover, with the whole dynamics of this financial year set to change. The week begins with the dwarf planet Ceres at a standstill after her direct turn in your income sector over the weekend and Uranus also at a standstill ahead of his direct turn here on Wednesday. While Ceres' friendly aspect to the Sun in your career sector is creating some confidence, the money gods have their finger on the pause button. Yet on Wednesday, everything is set to change and while it begins with Uranus' direct turn it is a shift in the axis of the lunar nodes that will energise both sides of the financial fence. For the first time in 17 years, this will see the North Node return to your income sector and its partner the North Node return to your financial sector where they will stay for the next 18 months. It is the North Node's focus on the future and on moving things forward that will amplify the impact from Uranus' direct turn in your income sector.
The Moon will return for its first visit to your health sector for the year on Friday and with it a chance to check in with what your body is telling you. Three weeks into the year, this is giving you time to get clear of the hype of the New Year and any hyped up resolutions, giving you a more realistic sense of both your own expectations and of what your body is telling you. With life getting back to normal, this allows for a more practical and grounded assessment of your health needs and priorities.
