Welcome to 2022! Time for a fresh start with the new moon in Capricorn on January 2nd. You’re presented with an opportunity to be honest about your cat’s goals and the ways in which you can help her achieve them. Venus will be in retrograde for the rest of the month, and the planet of love (or to felines, the planet of casual affection) won’t station direct again until January 29th. During this time, your cat will be reflecting on her relationship to you. Specifically, she’ll be putting her paws down when it comes to getting exactly what she wants‚—and needs. What else is new?
Mercury enters Aquarius on the 2nd and stations retrograde on the 14th. If your cat is fussy, this is because Aquarius is a water sign and she’s having trouble expressing herself in such an undesirable atmosphere. Be prepared for even more insistent meowing. She’s annoyed that you can’t read her mind, you silly human.
During the full moon in Cancer on the 17th, take advantage of her moment of weakness. Expect cuddles. This is your cat giving into the fact that, indeed, she does love you. Then, as Uranus—planet of unexpected events—stations direct on the 18th and the sun moves into Aquarius on the 19th, your cat’s idiosyncrasies will pour out in full force, just to remind you she’s her own person and your boss.
By the time Mars moves into Capricorn on the 24th, you should have set some intentions for 2022 with your cat. She’s expecting a lot from you this year—and you don’t want to disappoint.
