January 2024

Written by Tiffany Harelik

January Numerology

9-month in an 8-year

Assimilation. Closure, completion, tying things up. What are you integrating? This month can bring a sense of urgency and overstimulation to ‘figure it out’. Do you want to slow down to allow for digestion and understanding?

Janaury 1st – 7th

Beginning out the month…

January 1st, Venus square Saturn

Beware of overcommitting right now with time, expenses, and people. If you’re feeling the heavy weight of responsibility, or that happiness is being denied, take this as an opportunity to adjust your attitude and increase self-love, self-awareness, self-worth and self-esteem. Where can you be of service to the elders in your life? This will get you out of your head, and into your heart. This transit can be felt a day in advance.

Then, January 2nd: Mercury direct in Sagittarius

What needs to be renegotiated and revised? Communication breakdowns are clues to what still needs some fine tuning. What is stabilizing for you? Mercury will be out of shadow January 20th, and will retrograde in Aries April 1st.

The first lunar transit of the year throws us into Libra energy:

Last Quarter Moon at 13° Libra

This is harvest time. Something that started 2.5 years ago, is now coming to fruition. What feels complete? This Moon marks wisdom, experience, and seasoned perspective. What awards, gratitude, or recognition can be provided for something that is wrapping up?

Look at the house 13° Libra ignites in your personal chart for more information on this Moon phase family’s theme in your life.


1.🌑♎︎︎ October 6, 2021, New Moon 13° Libra: Set intentions, a new 2.5-year cycle begins. Wait and see what unfolds.

2.🌓♎︎︎ July 7, 2022, First Quarter Moon 14° Libra: Readiness to take action steps.

3.🌕♎︎︎ April 6, 2023, Full Moon 16° Libra: Observe what is being illuminated – pivot if needed, then commit.

4.🌗♎︎︎ January 4, 2024, Last Quarter Moon 13° Libra: Closure and completion. A time to pay up or receive payments both financially and energetically.”

Then, fire energy as Mars enters Capricorn on the 4th:

Practical action. Accountability, persistence, and discipline. Take action while the planet of drive (Mars) is in the sign of determination (Capricorn) January 4th – February 13th.

And the Sun square’s Chiron on the 6th:

Today is a new day. Remember this: life is happening from you, not to you. Let everything become ‘good medicine.’ Do you want to? Take nothing personally. Take full responsibility for your soul’s evolution. Get a new metaphysical book or session, hit up a twelve step program, move out of isolation tendencies, and move through depression. It’s ok to be vulnerable while growing and learning. Do you need to make any amends? Let nothing haunt your Soul. This can be felt a day early and occurs January 6th and July 15th.

January 8th – 14th

The second week begins on January 8th:

☂️ Mercury square Neptune,

Caution lights. Be aware of confusion, delusion, lies, overdoses, improper medications, and toxins. Things are not as they seem. More will be revealed. Do you want to take it easy? All safety precautions should be taken seriously—this transit is felt a few days in advance and occurs January 9th and June 17th.

Flowing into January 10th, Sun trine Uranus

Sparks fly (the good kind). Do you want to embrace them? New and exciting changes are afoot. What do you want to try? This is an excellent time to kickstart new hobbies and habits that improve your health. This energy can be felt a day in advance. This occurs January 10 and September 19.

Also, Mars sextile Saturn

Focused energy, discipline, and determination serve you well. Endurance is required, persistence pays off, forcing things to work is not beneficial. This is an excellent time to write strategies and work on time management. Mars provides the muscle, Saturn provides the structure. This energy comes in a week early, and peaks on January 10, and July 5.

Then, the New Moon greets us at 20° Capricorn

New Moon Intention: I enjoy creating connections to my inner adult.

Planting seeds around: business, long term planning, ambition, drive, crystals, Earth magic, and ancestral wisdom. This phase signifies subconscious influences and new beginnings. More will be shown over time. New Moon intentions are most potent during the first 8 hours of when the Moon is New.

Then on the 11th, Sun square North and South Node

Evolve beyond what you thought was possible. Personal growth through embracing lessons from the past, while stepping bravely into the future. The Universe gives us three of these breakthrough moments: January 11, July 2, and December 23.

Continuing on that day, Venus trine Chiron:

Spiritual well being. Breathe deep and relax with a massage, yoga, or creative meditation. Know this: love is all there is. Relationships are healing along with your perception. It’s a good time to flip through the pages of “A Return to Love” for inspiration. This energy can be accessed a day early and occurs three times this year: January 11, July 30, November 3.

The next day hits with Mars trine Jupiter…

Jan. 12th: Big energy – what is expanding? This is a beneficial time full of good mojo and big magic. It can be felt 3-5 days in advance.

January 14th greets us with Mercury entering Capricorn

Wise and careful consideration. Consider long term plans, action steps, and practical magic. Mercury rules communication and thinking, Capricorn is an Earth sign that governs crystals, businesses, and climbing mountains. Mercury is in Capricorn January 14 – February 5.

And also, Venus sextile South Node, trine North Node

Past connections, karmic relationships. Honoring sacred contracts and ancestral traditions. Spiritual growth through destined connections.

January 15th – 21st

We begin our third week on January 16th, with Sun sextile Neptune

Use your imagination – dreams come true. Reach for new opportunities, get creative, meditate, and help others. This mystical energy enhances intuition and can arrive a day in advance. It occurs twice this year: January 16 and May 19.

Concentrating on January 18th, Mercury sextile Saturn

Do you need some alone time to concentrate? This energy supports clear thinking, learning, mentorship, long-term goals, and themes around wise elders. This is a great transit to work with when you need to come across as an authority or step into the authority of your own life. It’s also optimal for studying family lineage. This can be felt a day in advance and occurs January 18 and May 28.

And on the 19th,  First Quarter Moon at 27° Aries

“A turning point: an opportunity to walk your talk. This yang phase signifies it’s time to take action (not contemplate). What pressures are working in your favor? Look back to events that were seeded by the New Moon in this sign (9 months ago) – for clues and themes.

Mercury trine Jupiter

Look for the wins! Where do you want to feel success? What you focus on is expanding. There’s flow in writing, talking, and sharing information. Mercury represents ideas, Jupiter represents a megaphone. This energy can be felt a day early and occurs January 19 and October 8. Be careful: there are mixed signals in the Skies – check the other transits.

Venus square Neptune

False securities. Feeling impressionable. There is a tendency to see the potential instead of accepting what actually is. This is not a good time to make life altering decisions. This bittersweet energy can build faith. It can be felt a day in advance and occurs January 19, June 17, and November 9.

 January 20th greets us with a Pluto CAZIMI in Aquarius ☉♇♒︎

What is being unearthed and discovered about yourself – in the context of your community? Aquarius represents the collective consciousness. The Sun represents you. Pluto represents the deeper under currents.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate,” – Carl Jung.

Pluto rules primal urges, personal transformation and regeneration, and the Sun represents your Soul – be mindful of the best use of your personal power. Are you ready to shine? Bonus: Mercury is out of shadow.

Note: this occurs once a year – the Sun is conjunct to Pluto annually at the end of January for the next several years.” 

And, Sun enters Aquarius

Happy Birthday Aquarius!

While the Sun is in Aquarius, we can make connections through interesting networks, enjoy open-ended conversations, and celebrate individuality. Aquarius is the sign of innovation, and assists with visions for the future of the tribe of humanity. We can all work with these friendly, independent, and unconventional Aquarian vibes through 2/18.

On the 21st, Pluto enters Aquarius

“This is a significant change in the patterns of our communities and technologies. Pluto rolls through innovative-Aquarius from 2023 to 2044. Futuristic Discoveries that shape the psyche of humanity will be a key theme for this period. Pluto is a wrecking ball, and a great transformative energy. As it moves from Capricorn to Aquarius, we will see massive changes of power, and secrets unearthed in government/leaders. There is a shift from disempowerment towards inner power and equality. A certain electrical creative streak will be seen in culture.

The most recent transit of Pluto in Aquarius was in 1777 – 1797, marking history with the peak of the Enlightenment period in Russia, the French Revolution, Industrial Revolution, Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven—and Revolution in the United States (the U.S. Constitution was established in 1787, then the Bill of Rights in 1789).

January 22nd – 31st

The fourth week begins on the 23rd with Venus entering Capricorn,

Venus, the goddess of romance travels through ambitious, cautious Capricorn January 23rd – February 16th (and will again this November). Themes include practical relationships, long-term commitments, conservative financial decisions, material security, traditional values, and old-fashioned romance.

Jan 25th holds the Full Moon at 5° Leo

Full Moon Intention: I am reaching my highest potential with integrity and love.

Remember to live: we’re here for a good time, not a long time. The Leo Full Moon helps us recognize achievements and recognize courage. Let go of stagefright, the fear of living your best life, and remove any blocks to enjoying your passions. Forgive yourself for times you’ve forgotten to play.

Self-Illumination. Set intentions around wrapping something up, and removing anything that hinders your confidence and clarity. The Universe is giving you more information. Under the light of the Full Moon it’s time to face facts, make adjustments, and reflect on what is seen at this time.

Be aware of excess energy—tides are high, blood flow is higher, cycles are breaking, and karmic deadlines are approaching. This can be a good time to find things/people, get a new understanding of hard to treat diagnoses, and present your work to shine in public.

This phase signifies the illumination of a larger 27-month cycle. Look at the house 5° Leo ignites in your personal chart for more information on this Moon phase family’s theme in your life.


1.🌑♌︎ July 28, 2022, New Moon 5° Leo: Set intentions, a new 2.5-year cycle begins. Wait and see what unfolds.

2.🌓♌︎ April 27, 2023, First Quarter Moon 7° Leo: Readiness to take action steps.

3.🌕♌︎ January 25, 2024, Full Moon 5° Leo: Observe what is being illuminated – pivot if needed, then commit.

4.🌗♌︎ October 24, 2024, Last Quarter Moon 1° Leo: Closure and completion. A time to pay up or receive payments both financially and energetically.”

The 25th also holds, Mars square Chiron

Perseverance and Faith. Healing through courageous action. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. If one of us is unhealed, a fraction of all of us are unhealed. Do you want to try the ho’oponopono prayer for yourself and others? “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.” This transit can be felt a week early, and occurs January 25th and October 13th.

January 26th, Mercury square Chiron

Healing conversations. Embracing vulnerability, feeling inspired to clear the air, and talking with others who carry the same pain/medicine bag as you. Is it time to forgive and forget? Remember this: worrying is like praying for something you don’t want. Act your way into right thinking, and pack your patience, tolerance, curiosity, and kindness —this one can be felt a day in advance of January 26 and June 28.

Then the 27th, Sun square Jupiter

A personal challenge has been created between our identity and our beliefs: who we are, versus who we think we are. There can be a tendency towards excess, overdoing, overspending, oversharing, etc. This can be a positive transit as long as moderation is expressed in all things (spending, attitudes, diet, etc.). Instead of learning something the hard way, or making hard going of life, we can observe what does and doesn’t work to make good decisions. Tap into the trial and error magic as early as a day in advance. January 27 and June 12.

On the same day, Mercury conjunct Mars in Capricorn ☿♂︎♑︎

Clarity. Decisiveness. Honesty. Assertive communication in business. Practical advice and real solutions are available for rapid progress. This energy can also be expressed as nervous thinking, impulsive talking, hot headedness, and nervousness. What tools do you have to calm a restless mind? This transit can be felt a day in advance.

Uranus Direct Taurus

The energy slows way down the day before and the day of Uranus direct. You may feel more hungry than usual. This is your body’s way of grounding and seeking comfort. Plan a healthy, home cooked meal to stay satiated and signal safety to your inner knower. Go easy, let the dust settle as times change in food and finances. Uranus will retrograde again in Taurus on August 29th for the rest of the year. 

Then on the 28th, one of the heaviest transit days,

Mercury Square the Nodes

Conflict between old thought patterns and the need for growth and change. Examining the hand you were dealt versus the hand you want to play. Are you at odds with what was/is versus what could be? . A magical third option is approaching. Embracing different ways of thinking and finding new perspectives brings solutions. 

Venus sextile Saturn

Long term commitments in romance and finance. Slow and steady wins the race. New responsibilities. Mature relationships. Do you want to open a new bank account to give it a great birthdate? This transit can be activated a day in advance and occurs three times: January 28, May 13, and November 22.

Mars Square the Nodes

Themes around letting go surface twice with this transit January 28 and September 16. This is a pivotal time to face fears and limitations we place on ourselves – in order to move forward towards a more fulfilling calling.

Mercury trine Uranus

Embracing change and new ideas. Learning things quickly. Technology advancements – and a good time to upgrade to new electronics. Stay open to unlikely friendships and chance encounters by being at the right place at the right time. If you’ve been looking for a sign – here it is! Keep an experimental attitude and be aware that radical and unconventional views will be prominent (and are likely fleeting). We don’t have to believe every thought we think. This energy circulates on January 28th, September 24.

Closing out the month, January 29th holds Venus trine Jupiter

Lady luck is on your side with both love and money. Benevolence, support systems, influential connections, really good proposals, and wisdom around finances. Generosity, philanthropy, and spiritual teachers. You may receive your good mojo a day in advance and it occurs January 29, September 15, and December 20. 

Mars trine Uranus

Fearless. A boost of energy, drive, and courage are available to help you act fast, or pivot in a fun new direction. This exciting vibe can arrive up to a week in advance and helps us adapt to change quickly. Do you want to go with the flow when you catch a wave of inspiration?

December 28th – 31st

Closing out the month…

The 29th, Venus sextile Pluto

Feeling the heat? Take a breath, communicate with honesty, and let everyone have space and time to find their truth. This is an ideal time for a money makeover too. What action do you need to take regarding investments, banking, and estate planning? What needs to evolve? This can be felt a day in advance and occurs February 19, and December 29.

Venus in Sagittarius

Let your heart roam. We value adventures, freedom, and high spirited friends while Venus is in Sagittarius the rest of the year. This can be a fun period to learn a foreign language, learn how to cook a meal from a different lineage, or study foreign policies.

Finally, on the 31st:

Jupiter Direct in Taurus

Jupiter is the cosmic magnifying glass that helps us focus on the sensual side of life while in Taurus: sweet and savory meals, serene environments, soothing textures. Jupiter in Taurus influences patience, persistence, and perseverance. It is an indicator of financial luck—if you’re willing to put in the work. Jupiter remains in Taurus through Spring of 2024.
