Today's Horoscope This week This month

Sagittarius horoscope for January 2022

The first question that we often ask when moving into the New Year is what kind of year will this be? This is followed by wondering where the opportunities and challenges will be and a lot of those questions can be answered in the early days and weeks of the year. The answer to the most pressing question is yes, this is destined to be a good year for you and for a number of reasons. The first is that for the first time in our lifetime, you begin the year with both the Moon and Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos in Sagittarius. This not only allows you to begin the year with your passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit fuelled from the start but an intuitive sense of where to channel this.

This allows you to own the year from the very start, putting yourself in the driver's seat. You also begin the year with Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams in your home and family sector, making it clear from the start that this is going to be a lucky and expansive year for home, family and/or property matters. Throughout the month there will also be other clues to what the coming year holds. One of those clues is the dwarf planet Eris' direct turn in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 11th January and the confidence, excitement and anticipation this is likely to create. What this is picking up on is the approach of lucky Jupiter's return in May.

At the same time, there are some stunning developments on the income and job fronts that bode well for the coming year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of each year in your income sector but you not only have Venus, planet of money here all month but Mars returning on 25th January, for the first time in nearly two years. What makes this auspicious is that Uranus will not only turn direct in your work sector on 19th January but on the same day that the North Node returns here for the first time in 18 years. This month has a bit of everything but in a way that is a taste of what you can expect from the coming year.

Love & Romance

For the last 20 months, the lunar nodes have been policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs, the North Node in your relationship sector from your relationships' perspective and the South Node in Sagittarius from your perspective. Over the last 20 months, when the Moon returns to both each month this has put this to the test, creating the potential for personal and/or relationship tension but each time revealing another layer when it comes to better understanding what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This will be the case when the Moon returns for its first visit to your relationship sector for the year from 13th January to 16th January.

However, it will also be for the last time, with the lunar nodes leaving on 19th January. Fortunately, in these final weeks and when a balance between your personal and relationship needs becomes more important than ever, there is growing communication support. While you begin the year with Saturn in your communication sector and Jupiter having just left at the end of last month, the real advantage comes from Mercury, the planet of communication's return on 2nd January. Mercury will be here when the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 13th January to 16th January.

Mercury's retrograde turn on 15th January will turn this into a chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Mercury will remain in retrograde motion in your communication sector until retrograding back out on 26th January, with the Sun's return on 20th January adding even more communication support just a day after the lunar nodes leave. Meanwhile, matters of the heart will get a boost when the dwarf planet Eris turns direct in your romantic sector on 11th January. The Moon will make its first visit to your romantic sector for the year from 8th January to 10th January, in time to capture the doors still open to the past and second chances.

Business & Career

The year begins with both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion and no planetary activity in your career sector though the Moon's visit over Christmas allowed you to end your 2021 professional year with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled. Not only are Uranus and the dwarf planet Ceres in retrograde motion in your work sector at the start of the month but are slowing to a standstill ahead of direct turns that will see work and job matters come alive in front of your very eyes. A slow start to the year will soon become anything but, making it important to make the most of a chance to catch your breath.

It is over the course of just four days, from 15th January to 19th January that everything will change, which makes the timing of the Moon's first visit to your work sector for the year especially auspicious. The Moon will move through from 11th January to 13th January, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters just as everything is about to change. It begins a day later when Ceres turns direct on 15th January and while not a major player, this is when her focus on your needs and priorities on the job front will shift from the past to the future.

It is four days later on 19th January that two events, within the space of just a few hours, will change the whole dynamics of this professional year. It begins with Uranus' direct turn in your work sector, ending a retrograde phase that began last August and in the process taking the brakes off work and job matters. It is just a few hours later that the North Node will return to your work sector for the first time in 18 years, giving work and job matters a sense of direction, momentum and purpose, as well as creating a series of eclipses over the next 18 months. This happens in the heart of what has the potential to be a lucrative month, while the Moon's return to your career sector from 21st January to 23rd January will galvanise things across the income, work and career fronts.


Because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your income sector, the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, this year there are not only a lot more planets but a variety of resources and options that will see a lot evolve both while the Sun is still here and after he leaves on 20th January. The year starts with the Sun, Venus, Mercury, Pluto and the asteroid Juno in your income sector, putting a lot of tools in your tool belt, each offering something different.

Their numbers will swell when the Moon not only returns on 2nd January but to begin the first New Moon of the year less than 24 hours later. It is just a few hours later that Mercury will leave but not before allowing you to begin the year with the smart head for money needed to have your head in the game and to think on your feet from the start. However, this is not goodbye, with a retrograde turn bringing Mercury back for a double dip visit on 26th January. While the Sun, who will leave your income sector on 20th January will be gone by the time Mercury returns, the rest of the planets will still be where he left on 2nd January. The year began with Venus, the planet of money in retrograde motion here and she will still be in retrograde motion when Mercury returns.

In addition to this, Mercury will return to find Mars, the warrior planet of the cosmos here, with his first visit in nearly two years beginning on 25th January, just a day before his return. Mercury won't turn direct until next month and with Venus in retrograde motion until 29th January, this will make it easier for you to exploit the doors still open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the other side of the financial fence, the Moon will be working to make its first visit to your financial sector for the year, from 16th January to 18th January count. A clash with the Sun will create the first Full Moon of 2022, energising both sides of the financial fence.


There is such a dramatic turnaround on the health front this month that this could be a month of two halves, with 19th January the dividing point. Until then, while the dwarf planet Ceres will turn direct in your health sector on 15th January this is more a shift in focus when it comes to her deep dive into your health needs and priorities. It is not until Uranus turns direct in your health sector on 19th January that the physical weight will lift and you will feel your energy and motivation return. Until then there is a valuable chance to recharge your batteries before fully embracing the coming year. However, it is not just Uranus' direct turn that creates such a sudden turnaround, with the North Node returning on the same day to provide a lot more energy, motivation and a call to look to the future rather than the past.
