With Mercury and Venus both Retrograde in Capricorn into the new year, life has been far from joyful for the majority of people on this planet lately. If you are managing to keep a smile on your face despite all the craziness and stay optimistic more power to you. Being able to laugh, stop to smell the roses and kick up our heels now and then is important to overall health.
Venus is going Direct on January 29th, after being Retrograde since December 19, 2021. This should help to lighten some things up for many of us.
As January ends and February begins, the spirit of joy may become more noticeable. At least there is likely to be some form of relief to nagging problems.
This coming weekend is a great time to have some fun, get creative, or catch up with some much needed self-pampering.
