It’s time to kick things into overdrive.
Can you believe the second week of 2023 is already here? It seems like just yesterday Christmas decorations were going up (this is your friendly reminder to take them down), and now the new year is in full swing. While time already seems to be flying, it’s about to kick into overdrive as Mars finally ends its retrograde and stations direct in Gemini this week. After retrograding through the cosmos since Oct. 30, conflict, confrontation, and initiative has been moving in slow-motion, and misunderstandings when it comes to communication has been a common occurrence. The good thing is, your January 9, 2023 horoscope is finally giving you the push you’ve been waiting for. But, while the boost in energy is bound to be refreshing, it may leave you feeling a little scatterbrained.
As the week begins, Venus in Aquarius will form a harmonious trine to Mars in Gemini on Jan. 9, adding heat to your connections and creative pursuits. Trines occur when two planets are in signs that share the same element, indicating a supportive and complementary relationship between the two: In this case, Venus in Aquarius is eager to explore unique dynamics in relationships, and Mars in Gemini is only adding fuel to the fire. Since Venus and Mars are both currently in air signs, everyone will be feeling eager to share their thoughts, ideas, and perspectives with others as a way to deepen relationships. (Your social calendar will be jam-packed.)
On Jan. 12, Mars will station direct in Gemini, bringing an end to the reviews and revisions you’ve been making in your Gemini-ruled house since Oct. 30 — especially since Mercury joined the party and stationed retrograde on Dec. 30. While Mars won’t officially leave this sign until March 26, you’ll finally begin to notice progress when it comes to the progression of your ideas and concepts in this area. You’ll also be able to communicate and address conflict in a way that’s constructive, instead of your words potentially backfiring.
Here’s what every sign can expect from this week’s astrology:
