Exciting news for 2023: Cory has taken over the astrology writing at Chronogram. Each month Cory will be writing a monthly forecast and horoscopes for each sign. You can read online or in print. Go to for more information.

The astro-weather in this episode gives a run down of the Month of January and starting January first. The month of January helps set new things in motion - eventually. This month we have Mars, Mercury and Uranus all stationing direct. This will create a tonal shift, though it may be slow to start. The astrology of the week includes: Venus conjunct Pluto (in Capricorn), Venus’s ingress into Aquarius, Cancer full moon. 

Questions answered in this episode:

I’d like to talk about the difference (and overlap) between the primordial tidal waters of Cancer and the amniotic fluid that is Pisces. Is this just… water element stuff? Cancer - ebbs and flows Pisces - less “ebb and flow” more, “just is”. 

I have heard astrologers say things like “there are no bad placements” and “there are no bad aspects”, but then I hear words like “opposition” and “tension” and that makes me think “bad”. Which is it? 

I have Mercury and Saturn both retrograde in my natal chart. I feel like I have a pretty decent grasp on the Mercury retrograde thing as it relates to the collective, but I am curious what it (and Saturn retrograde) represent in a natal chart?
