January is upon us, a time for fresh starts and new beginnings as we welcome in a new year. While there is no guarantee that you won’t experience any bumps in the road, making yourself aware of the upcoming energy shifts will help you to better prepare for what’s to come.

Astrology has long been relied upon to provide us with information and guidance in our lives. Dating back as far as the Babylonians, astrology was used to predict the changing of seasons and weather patterns, warn of coming natural disasters and, of course, and to estimate and prepare for a number of different human affairs.

It was from this knowledge that the Western zodiac as we know it today was developed, however, the Western zodiac isn’t the only known and followed astrological system in the world today. Throughout history as the study of astrology developed, various cultures would establish their own predictions and ways of assessing the planetary movement. This includes the Native Americans, Celts, and ancient Egyptians among others. Why limit ourselves solely to the study of the Western Zodiac when so much more information is available to us? It is for this reason that this list will bring together notable dates and events from a variety of cultures.

Each of these events marks a change in the energy that influences our lives. For example, throughout the lunar calendar, the energy of the moon will shift and adjust slightly. While the New Moon is a time of new beginnings and setting intentions, the Full Moon will bring intense and overwhelming emotions. It is important to take some time and understand the impact that each of the planets has on our lives, and how their movement can influence and impact our daily decisions.
