Mercury, your ruling planet, ends its retrograde as the year begins. This marks a potent moment to move ahead with the launch or initiation you began in the second half of November. Carve out time each day for solitude and reflection this month, as you’ll find yourself gaining clarity about your life direction, particularly once Mars enters Capricorn this Thursday. A friend may seek your help today to process their emotions related to something that occurred during retrograde season. The best approach is to listen without feeling the need to provide a response for everything. This is a time of being a conscious listener and observer rather than an immediate reactor. As 2024 begins, you’re maturing, and it’s completely normal that life has felt increasingly complex, especially socially since you’ve just made it through a retrograde in your sector of relationships. Celebrate your growth and affirm your brilliance.
