SCORPIO - January 2024 Forecast

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

TLDR; you really are god's strongest soldier! /j but seriously you're on your A-game this month, don't forget to wield your power when the time is right.

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 3rd House to your 2nd House, re-evaluating/reviewing/reorganizing matters relevant to siblings, local travel, learning, and personal finances 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 (like yourself!). General conditions concerning your physical appearances and personality become stronger & more honorable during this 6-week transit. You'll find that your talents in fighting, debating, and being "the necessary disrupter" become vigorous and dignified. If you were born at night, this transit is likely a constructive event for you. Look to support coming from trusted people in your life, since Jupiter transiting your 7th house will support those matters in the 3rd house (see above) where Mars will be transiting.

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 3rd House, matters involving: learning, travel, or your siblings will undergo some fresh starts or new beginnings.

We welcome the Aquarius solar season on the 20th of January, shifting focus from matters of the 3rd house to matters of the 4th 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 Scorpio risings however, matters pertaining to the home, parents, ancestors, or private land gain importance during this time. Perhaps Aquarius season is the best excuse to be a homebody! Look out for things pulling your attention away from the public eye and into the more private dealings of your life.

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 in the 3rd House (see above). 

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. 

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 3rd house will be thankful for the introduction of Venus at its events! Consider romanticizing your routines and daily mundanity during this 4-week Venus transit.

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 4th (home) and 10th (career) houses! Maybe you've been working your ass off at work for that promotion, maybe you've redone your house and you're having guests over for the first time, whatever the case may be- there is cause for celebration, even if to let go of things that no longer serve you. The energy is high for you and others around this time! Expect some wired nights and extroverted interactions with others around this time.

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 3rd House around this time.

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.
