With Mars in your sign all month long, Aries, you’ll be even more of the center of attention than usual. Your sexual energies will increase tremendously this month, especially since we’re experiencing two eclipses in January that will help you prioritize your sexual and romantic desires, and get clear on what you must do to manifest the sex life of your dreams. Mars is the Planet of Action, and it’s your planetary ruler. You’ll be feeling magnetic, super powerful and unstoppable. If you have your eye on someone this month, all you have to do is express it with passion and they’re likely to reciprocate the energy. Watch out though, because you may end up feeling overwhelmed with all of this Mars in Aries energy. Your sex drive and stamina will increase tremendously, and if you don’t have a healthy outlet, you’ll end up sexually frustrated and all over the place.
The Capricorn Solar Eclipse on the 5th activates your sector of roots and the past, so don’t be surprised if someone from your past pops up around now and admits how turned on they are by you. If the feeling is mutual, the first half of the month will lead to many opportunities for sexual escapades with your past lover or fling. Memories may creep up on you and make you think as people really excite you and understand your sexual needs. Try not to second-guess who you’re attracted to around eclipse. Your intuition will be heightened, and if you’ve been having daydreams about people that you want to merge with sexually, you may be able to manifest that sooner than you think this month. The key is to become crystal clear about what the most fulfilling sexual relationship feels and looks like to you. Once you do you’ll start to have greater ease in expressing your truth and coming on to people you really resonate with.
One day after the solar eclipse, Uranus in your sign ends its five-month retrograde. This will open up the floodgates when it comes to your relationship with yourself and others. People may not have realized how insecure you were feeling during Uranus retrograde, because as an Aries, you tend to have a super confident demeanor, and this may have caused you to push away sexual suitors these past five months. Luckily, Uranus going direct will lead to your sexual powers significantly deepening, and you’ll feel so much more confident and in love with yourself. You may find yourself attracted to more than one person at a time this month, and it could be a little overwhelming to decide who you want to have sex with, or merge with emotionally. Since it’s an eclipse month, take your time when navigating the complexities of your sexual relationships, that way you won’t make any impulsive decisions that you’d later regret.
Once Venus enters Sagittarius on the 7th, the Planet of Love is back in your element and this will help you be more expansive and adventurous in bed. Sagittarius energy encourages you to try new sexual positions, go have sex abroad, and break free of any societal taboo that’s keeping you from setting your primal nature free sexually and psychologically. This will especially be true on January 20 once the Sun enters Aquarius for four weeks. Your more rebellious and daring side will emerge during the Aquarius season, and this will have you ready to try out the ideal sex life you deserve. The Aquarius Sun, Mars in your sign, combined with Jupiter and Venus in Sag allow you to view yourself as the ultimate sexual conquest.
Just when you thought that this month and couldn’t get more adventurous or exciting, the second eclipse of the month takes place on January 21 in the Fire sign of Leo. This activates your sector of true love, fate, and adventure. Something serendipitous may take place between January 15 and the end of the month (because you’ll intensely feel the eclipse energy about one week before and after the transit takes place), and it will catch you by surprise. It could be that you connect with someone new out of the blue and feel like you’ve met your soulmate. One night of love-making may forever change your life. If you’re trying to conceive, this Lunar Eclipse at the month’s end may lead to you successfully doing so. If you’re not trying to have a baby, be extra safe with all sexual interactions this month, because eclipse energy is super powerful. Either way, you’ll end the month prepared to give birth to a new sexual mentality — one where you don’t try to control or tame your strong sexual urges. Allow that energy to run through you. Own your sexual gifts and mesmerizing energy. This month is all about you and what makes you feel sexually free. When the sex is good, life is good.
The first eclipse of the month takes place on the 5th of January, and it’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Capricorn energy can often be about ambition and drive, and this eclipse will encourage us to be more ambitious sexually and emotionally. While Capricorn energy often focuses on what’s “realistic”, eclipse and New Moon energy encourages us to fantasize more and go after dreams outside of our comfort zone. Use the dates between January 5 and 15th to set intentions on how you can be a rockstar in both the bedroom and the business room. All skymates will be focused on starting the year strong, but beware to not place pressure on your relationships or situationships to look or feel a certain way.
Eclipses often come with an element of surprise, and you may be shocked at how much your sex life is rocked by this month’s eclipses. Desires that were previously suppressed will suddenly be revealed, especially around the 5th and 6th since Venus, the Planet of Love, will be spending its final days in Scorpio. Those sexual fantasies that you may have journaled or dreamt about will be asking to be fulfilled, and the more you resist, the stronger the urge becomes. We may find ourselves having obsessive thoughts about our current or desired sex partner(s) around the Capricorn eclipse, and it’ll be necessary to find some way to release the sexual tension. Some of us may be tempted to dive into work-related activities as a way to distract ourselves from our more primal urges. But if you’re working hard, you deserve to play hard too. Although more than four planets will be in hard-working Capricorn at some point this month,you’ll have to make sure you’re not using work as a distraction or diversion from being honest about your sexual needs.
Luckily, Venus’ shift into fiery Sagittarius on the 7th, Aquarius Season beginning the 20th, and the Leo Lunar eclipse taking place the 21st will help lighten up the overall cosmic mood, and it’ll be a huge boost for our sexual libidos. Fire and Air sign vibes are all about exploration, adventure, spontaneity and freedom. From the 7th of January through the end of the month, we’ll be feeling less possessive or controlling in bed, and more open to experimentation and discovery. We should let ourselves shamelessly flirt and be flirted with, and we should give into our desires to discover new aspects of our sexuality. It’ll feel refreshing to have a more extroverted and social energy in contrast to the seriousness of all the Capricorn planets. It may feel like Sag Season all over again, but a bit more structured.
One thing we should all watch out for during Venus in Sag is consciously or unconsciously leading people on. This is especially true once Aquarius Season begins, followed by the Leo Lunar Eclipse. You may find yourself wanting sexual partner(s), but also wanting the freedom and space to figure out your romantic needs. We’ll collectively be feeling the desire to connect with others, but without labels or limitations. Some of us will be more able to admit this than others, and that’s what the Leo eclipse is about. If you want something or someone, but you’re too afraid to let them know, you may end up feeling courageous enough to spill the beans around the 21st of January, throughout the end of the month. Mars, the Planet of Action, spends all month in the confident sign of Aries, encouraging us to release our inner vixen or sex god. That means being bolder and more assertive about what type of sex we’re having, where we’re having it, and with whom should be a priority all month long. Tap into your power, skymates. Kick off the year feeling sexually satisfied.
