Today's Horoscope This week This month
Virgo horoscope for January 2022
Jupiter's return to your relationship sector in the final days of December will have a massive impact on the coming year, making 2022 one of the most important years for all your relationships in over a decade. Jupiter only returned on 29th December so this is something that you are still adjusting but moving into the year with Neptune, the planet of dreams here as well is giving you high expectations from the start. What will add to this is the South Node's return to your communication sector on 19th January, for the first time in 18 years. For the next 18 months, this will help to keep the communication lines open, while supporting both Jupiter and Neptune in your relationship sector.
Meanwhile, when Jupiter left your work sector at the end of last month he left you with high expectations and a lot of momentum. This also left Saturn behind and not leaving until 2023, he will not only keep the momentum going but is giving you the determination to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. Saturn will be joined by Mercury on 2nd January, giving you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. By the time the Sun returns on 20th January, Mercury's retrograde turn on 15th January will have opened the doors to the past, second chances and untapped job potential.
Despite this, life is unlikely to become all work and no play, with the Sun not only in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until 20th January and Venus all month but Mars joining them on 25th January, the day before Mercury retrogrades back in for a double dip visit. Until then, Mars will begin the year in your home and family sector, spending the early weeks of the year injecting a lot of energy, motivation and drive into home, family and/or property matters.
Love & RomanceWith the Sun always spending the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your romantic sector, the focus is always going to be on matters of the heart in the New Year but not to the degree, diversity or longevity that you will experience this year. This creates a month that has a mix of the expected and the unexpected and that includes on the relationship front, which doesn't usually get too much attention until later next month. The expected is to have the solar spotlight on matters of the heart and all things romantic until the Sun leaves your romantic sector on 20th January.
While it is not unusual to start the year either with Venus and/or Mercury here but not this reluctant to leave. Venus begins the year in retrograde motion and while she will turn direct on 29th January she won't leave until March. While Mercury will leave on 2nd January, a retrograde turn will see him return for a double dip visit on 26th January. This is just a day after Mars' return on 25th January will fire things up in a way that only the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos can. Just when matters of the heart should be dialling back they will instead be heating up.
Long before that, the Moon's return on 2nd January and the New Moon this will create less than 24 hours later will bring an opportunity for new beginnings and a fresh start, at a time when the doors are open to the past and second chances. Meanwhile, while the Sun doesn't return to your relationship sector until later next month, the year not only begins with Jupiter already here but alongside Neptune. Starting the year with the planets of luck and dreams in your relationship sector is not just a once in a lifetime event but is a taste of things to come. Between 6th January and 8th January, the Moon's first visit to your relationship sector for the year and since Jupiter's return on 29th December offers a chance to become more emotionally engaged and connected.
Business & CareerThe influences in play on the job front, so steady and static for much of 2022 are changing and evolving in front of your eyes in the early days of the month and will continue to for months to come. It was on 29th December that Jupiter left your work sector, just over a year after he and Saturn both returned in December 2020. As the planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter's job was not only to expand everything including your workload and possibilities but to leave you with something to aim and strive for. With Saturn not only staying on but here until 2023, this gives you the resolve and determination to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes.
With Jupiter gone so too is any urgency, with Saturn's slow and steady hands at the wheel as you move into the New Year. While that will remain the case throughout 2022, since the early months of 2021 Saturn and Jupiter have been focused on the big picture but this month things become a lot more real but in a hands on and mundane way. It begins with Mercury's return to your work sector on 2nd January, giving you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open in the early days of this new professional year.
As he always does, the Sun will return to your work sector to put the solar spotlight on your work situation, job matters and options on 20th January but by then two events will have already changed things up. The first is Mercury's retrograde turn on 15th January, giving you a chance to pull back while the second is the North Node's departure from your career sector on 19th January. This will leave you with a sense of professional direction and purpose but brings the eclipses here to a close while ending a policing of your work/life balance. Mercury will retrograde back out on 26th January but will return next month, in time to welcome Venus and Mars who won't return to begin the best weeks of 2022 on the job front until early March.
MoneyAs is usually the case at this time of year, there is no planetary activity in your income sector and on the other side of the financial fence, the planets keeping the wheels turning on the financial front are just coming out of hibernation. However, as the Moon returned for its last visit to your income sector for 2021 just after Christmas, this was close enough to the New Year to ensure you begin the year with a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the start. However, the Moon's departure means the focus is now back on the other side of the financial fence where it will remain.
While not major players, Chiron and the dwarf planet Eris have been keeping money matters on track for years now. Chiron turned direct last month so you have already started to look to the future but until the dwarf planet Eris turns direct on 11th January the brakes are still on. Eris, the warrior planet of the cosmos is the dominant planet and until the Sun returns in March, the annual awakening of her warrior spirit is what will give this financial year its first kick start. Fortunately, with the Moon making its first visit to your financial sector for the year from 8th January to 11th January, your financial instincts and imagination will be fuelled as the brakes come off.
Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence, the Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year couldn't be more important. The Moon will move through from 23rd January to 25th January and as always, this will sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger. What makes the timing auspicious is that the Moon will move through just days after the Sun's return to your work sector on 20th January and just before Mercury is due to leave on 26th January. These will be an important few days on the income and job fronts.
