LIBRA - January 2024 Forecast

Preferably read for your rising sign <3 if you don’t know how to find your rising sign click here: 

TLDR; a lot of focus on your home life this month, Libra. I recommend going thrifting for home decor once Venus enters Capricorn...

High fortune days (astrologically better-than-average days imo): Jan 8 (Moon/Venus conjunction) and Jan 18 (Moon/Jupiter conjunction).

We start the new calendar year off on a clean slate, with Mercury being the last visible planet to station direct. Mercury (significator of: speech, travel, finances, children, students) begins to move again with forward progress, cleaning up the details of our lives that have been slowly undoing themselves since December 12th. Mercury has been moving backwards from your 4th to 3rd Houses, re-evaluating/reviewing/reorganizing matters relevant to home life & siblings/travel/learning since December 12th. Additionally, Mars has been in close contact with Mercury during the latter half of the retrograde, likely adding moments of aggravation & undesired intensity to matters already going awry. Things are moving forward & getting better than before, it just might take the whole month for you to realize it! 

Mars enters Capricorn on January 4th, increasing overall strength in the battles we face every day. Mars gains dignity in the sign of Capricorn and by extension,  so do Mars-ruled people, places, and things. This “strength in battle” is especially relevant to the topics of your 4th house. Tumultuous events are likely concerning your family or matters in your home. Look to support coming from your Taurus 8th House since Jupiter is there. Looks like some needed physical or financial support coming from others in your life. If you were born at night, this transit is likely a constructive event for you!

The Sun and Moon join each other on January 11th, ringing in the start of the first lunar cycle of 2024. Otherwise referred to as the “Capricorn New Moon,” this fresh start reflects a heightened priority of the long-term and the short-term decisions we can make to attract the future we want. Happening for you in the 4th house, expect new beginnings to come through as things are relevant to your home life, parents, private land, and/or ancestors.

We welcome the Aquarius solar season on the 20th of January, shifting focus from matters of the 4th house to matters of the 5th house. Like Capricorn, this solar season remains under the influence of Saturn, though everyone is a bit louder about the growing sense of melancholy and rejection. For Libra risings however, things get more fun and less serious under this weather. The 5th house has a lot to do with friends, lovers, desirable experiences, creativity, and children. Aquarius season shines the spotlight on the 5th House and influences your choices to best serve those house topics.

A day after we shift the collective focus on Aquarius, Mercury leaves their post-shadow phase and begins to travel through unexplored Capricorn territory. In layman’s terms, by January 21st, we will have revisited everything that needed to be revisited since the Mercury retrograde of December 12th. Stagnancy is out, moving forward is in! Look forward to new events coming your way concerning details of your home life.  

As if we weren’t done with the Capricorn side of things, Venus decides to join the party on January 23rd. Similar to Mars, Venus gains (some) dignity in the sign of Capricorn. She is not formally exalted in the sign like Mars is, but she does behave more preferably in earthy, nocturnal signs. Especially after her run-ins with Saturn at the beginning of the month, events under her influence begin to cool down and gain a sense of discernment. Additionally, since Venus rules Libra, expect your physical appearance & general demeanor to come under Saturn's influence as well. Perhaps your morning routine is taking more steps or you're just generally slowing down to appreciate things in your daily life.

Since Venus is the natural significator of relationships, friendship, mothers, sisters, marriages- it is likely to see or experience a certain “return to logic” where relationships with others are concerned. In short, Venus in Capricorn is family heirlooms, unearthed wedding rings, preserved makeup, the lawful maintenance of cave paintings. Beautiful things that stand in need of duty, obligation, commitment, and/or practicality are noteworthy descriptors of this Venus season. Pay attention to the things that add sweetness in places where it’s easy to forget there is any. The harshness or difficulty manifesting in your 4th House will be thankful for the introduction of Venus at its events! Beautifying the home or renovating deteriorating spaces are auspicious ventures under this weather.

January 25th brings us the Aquarius/Leo full moon, the first one of 2024! A completion, culmination, release, and (maybe) a party is happening in your 5th and 11th houses. This speaks highly to social events or places where you are likely to find friends and allies. Whether you're making a toast with the besties, or finally letting go of people who aren't good for you, its a time of heightened energy regardless. Expect some sleepless nights and surges of creativity.

Mercury catches up to Mars in the sky and conjoins him in the sign of Capricorn on January 26th. Mars and Mercury have been tailing each other closely for some time now in the sky, reflecting aggression and aggravation to the topics associated with Mercury (see above). With this meeting happening under Saturn’s influence in Capricorn, it’s wise to expect some not-cute moments happening in your home life around this time. Arguments with brothers and fathers are likely, though at its mildest interpretation- you're shredding old documents and pitching broken things.

Things cool off towards the end of the month as Mercury gains speed and bypasses Mars. January certainly leaves the world on an awkward and vaguely bitter note going into February.
