The next few months "will benefit all zodiac signs" now that the sky will be retrograde free, celebrity astrologer Kyle Thomas tells PEOPLE exclusively



The best time of the year to manifest is here!

Say goodbye to retrogrades and hello to clear astrological skies, because starting on Jan. 27 at 11:35 p.m. PT, celebrity astrologer Kyle Thomas tells PEOPLE that "all planets in our solar system will be awake and direct."

This is a time that will benefit all zodiac signs "both personally and professionally," says Thomas — who's known for his cosmic guidance for celebrities, business executives and prominent influencers — noting that everyone will "have an easier time" bringing their desires into fruition.

"All zodiac signs can now manifest love, success and their heart's desires with no retrogrades in the sky," he adds. But Thomas stresses it's important we "take action" and "manifest all of our desires" now!

Why? Because the countdown is on until the next Mercury Retrograde on April 1, 2024. The often dreaded astrological activity is "one of the most popular catchall periods for why everything in your life seems to be falling apart," according to Thomas

Approximately three to four times a year, Mercury — the planet of communication and the mind — appears to move backward across the sky (though is only an optical illusion from Earth), resulting in periods often associated with confusion, delay and frustration.

Read on for ways to make the most of your manifestations from Jan. 27 through April 1, per Kyle Thomas' suggestions!

Oftentimes, Thomas says "we inevitably have a slower pace to life" when retrogrades are taking place. However, he assures "we'll be back on track and gaining speed" starting Jan. 27.

Thomas says Mercury (the planet of communication and the mind) will be quickly picking up the pace, which will be felt in each and every one of us, too! Venus (the planet of relationships) will also be racing right along.

"This means all of the delays, stagnation and hiccups you’ve experienced since the autumn and beginning of winter in 2023 will start to fade from view," says Thomas.

Make that money.

Use this retrograde-free time "to focus on your finances, business plans and career goals" because you'll likely be able "to pivot directions and be more confident in your path forward," says Thomas.

He predicts that "all financial decisions, investments and purchases will be made on firmer ground." However, Thomas emphasizes to "be sure to consult a financial consultant or accountant on your choices if you do not previously have experience making them."

Open your heart to love.

Thanks to Venus and Mars' close planetary alignment in the sky, Thomas says we're likely "to see our relationships move forward."

That means, if you're hoping for your ex-partner to return, Thomas says "that ship has likely sailed." He explains, "You’ll have to wait till another significant retrograde for your window in time to bring that rapport back to life."

Or, Thomas suggests you "move on" and instead "go forward!" He says, "The stars are favoring advancement in current relationships as well as new connections."

That brings good luck for all those who are single, too! Thomas says you’re in "one of the most favored times of the year to meet someone great and watch the rapport grow."

Plus, he adds that making long-term plans and promises, moving in, getting engaged or even being wed "are all especially lucky now" and "could be blessed by the stars above."

Embrace your sense of freedom.

Uranus (the planet of freedom and liberation) will be awake during this time, says Thomas. This means that "you will have more energy to live authentically and express yourself in all your vastness."

How do you make the most of this energy? "Take chances, pursue adventure and break the cages that block you from living your most vividly," says Thomas.

Launch businesses and long-term plans.

Saturn (the planet of structures and perseverance) is dancing forward in the sky! Thomas says having this planet alive "works in your favor" because Saturn is "often tied to long-term decisions, important business choices and ambition."

Thomas says to "strike now" if you’re looking for the right time to launch a company initiative, product or corporation. "Hashing out the nitty-gritty business plans is also in favor now," he continues. "Sign contracts and lock negotiations as you could seal the fate of long-term success within them."

Make your dreams come true.

Jupiter (the planet of miracles and expansion) will be "spinning like a sacred star above us" at this time, says Thomas. As a result, he explains it will "help you to turn your dreams into a reality!"

Therefore, Thomas suggests you "create your intentions for the year and then set forth to make them happen," because "action will lead you to fulfillment." By showing the universe what you’re after, he says "you could very likely find that you suddenly are guided to be at the right place at the right time."

Unlock your spirituality.

Neptune (the planet of spirit and soulmate connections) will also be smiling upon you, says Thomas. "This will unlock your inner magic and intuition, allowing you to connect more deeply with your soul."

He adds, "It will also give you heightened perception of the world around you." Begin a ritual practice, meditation or mindfulness routine now and Thomas says you’ll likely "find that you are more balanced, centered and divinely aligned."

Transform the structures within your life.

Pluto (the planet of rebirth) will be "granting you the mighty power to eliminate what isn’t working for you upon your path," says Thomas.

Feeing brave? If you're willing to face the "deepest parts of your psyche, past and fears," Thomas says you can "restructure your life according to your true will."

He adds, "You can recreate your path and burn down the structures that stand around you that are limiting you from achieving your greatest happiness." Although it might not be easy, Thomas says it could "end up helping you to become the master of your destiny."

Despite the "post and pre-shadow" felt from the planets during this period, Thomas says "all of our personal planets will be gaining strength day-by-day." Anything that's popped up in recent months "will be sorted out," he assures.

"It is of the utmost importance to seize the day now until April 1," Thomas stresses. From then on, he says the entire year "will be filled with some form of planetary retrograde," which will likely "slow down life, your relationships and your plans."
