Astrology of January 2021

by Henry Seltzer
editor Victor Daniel

Powered by: &

This is another action-packed month, as the new 2021 year begins, and as we see light at the end of our Covid tunnel, so that perhaps by mid-year we could find ourselves escaping the worst restrictions of the ongoing pandemic. That the light will eventually come, as all indications are telling us now, is of course a great relief, but that this end of social distancing will not come sooner is of course a tough situation; Covid fatigue is real, and we are truly in the soup for another six months at least, maybe longer. In an accurate match to the discernible situation, we find that in this month’s astrology there is a tremendous focus on transformational Pluto, greatly emphasized in both the recent solar eclipse from mid-December, which still colors the first half of this new year, and in the month of January specifically. In the January 12th Capricorn New Moon, the Sun and Moon directly conjunct Pluto. When we analyze the remaining months of this first half year, in fact, this Pluto presence is still quite present, and in some way gets even stronger, indicating that we have a long way to go before we get out of our difficult situation.

The Capricorn presence of Pluto in such a powerful condition indicates that massive societal changes are still very much with us in this new year. This is true as well for our individual metamorphosis in coordination with the timing of our own personal evolution that we are in any case experiencing. It is of great interest to note also that there is a difference in our cosmic circumstances as represented by the fact that Saturn now resides in Aquarius, conjunct optimistic Jupiter and in square with progressive Uranus, rather than bundled up with Pluto in Capricorn. Although still somewhat active until the very end of 2021, the close Saturn-Pluto conjunction that was the intense hallmark of the 2020 year has now expired. That Pluto remains prominent in Saturn’s sign of Capricorn implies more of the same societal hardship and impulse for change will still plague us, although with a distinct shift in the astrological weather: thunderstorms but with occasional rays of sunlight.

There are several key moments in this whopper of a month, when Mars, Venus and Mercury all change signs, taking place from the 6th to the 8th, and when Mars and Venus align in a trine aspect from the 7th to the 10th, indicating heightened relationship attention, and most emphatically when the potent Capricorn New Moon arrives on the 12th, in conjunction with Pluto, as described above. When the Moon’s First Quarter hits, on the 20th, Mars meets Uranus in conjunction, indicating surprise actions and startling revelations especially for that particular day. Because Mars was in close conjunction with the new planet, Eris, in the timing of the winter solstice from the 21st of last month, we have an elevated Mars presence all this year. This could represent determined action in support of deep soul intention ( Eris) or, as well, other less positive manifestations such as buried anger exploding to the surface. We all could of course benefit from a better level of psychic integration along the way, as we can each come to that.

The two Full Moon events affecting the January month are both quite powerful as well. The December 29th Full Moon, immediately preceding the New Year, was in aspect to volatile Uranus, in Taurus, so that we have surprise events to contend with right from the very beginning of the month, as well as a great deal of intuition available to us as we go through its deep-seated changes. Then, near the end of January, on Thursday the 28th, there is a Full Moon in Leo that is also a T-square from Sun conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius, with the Moon opposed, to Mars in Taurus still widely conjunct Uranus. This final Full Moon is terrific for ideas, and for contesting them with others in our circle, and for impulsively forging ahead with what we decide from an emotional gut-level response that might detour around high-minded restraint. This is a powerful configuration that comes near the end of a potent month, and represents also the will of the individual put to use in a sharply determined manner within social contexts.

Finally, as we consider that a thoughtful and introspective time is beginning for us in this same end-of-month timing with the looming retrograde of Mercury, we must also recognize that there are many things to think about concerning our individual spiritual evolution and as well a massive transformation of society indicated by this thoughtful Covid reset in which we are still engaged. Mercury retrogrades through Aquarius for all of February and well into March, when you take the retrograde shadow into account.

What do we intend, heading into this New Year, and what can we concretely manage to achieve? The answer will varry according to the individual, but this we can say: the answer lies within our own hearts and how we can come to the most authentic version of ourselves that we can muster. Let us truly try, ignoring our doubts and any nay-saying that we encounter on the part of our social setting, to be the best that we can possibly be, letting go of anything that stands in our way. If we can solve our own dark places, we can serve as a beacon for the society that surrounds us to do the same. In this way we can truly come to the promise of our human heritage, to help this civilization to emerge from its shadows into the light of collective higher purpose.

A May Month of Picking Up the Pieces

The astrology of May features Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, and Eris. The biggest news is Mercury, in that the Taurus New Moon from the middle of the last week of April, and that therefore kicked off the current lunation cycle, revealed a prominent Mercury-Uranus conjunction, with Mercury still in retrograde just one degree away, moving quite slowly and about to turn around to direct motion just as this month gets underway. While covering only two degrees of late Aries the...

This is an amazing month, Aries, a year of new beginnings for you – with the same difficulties – and with a novel twist or two as well. Ideas abound, and some of these succeed in getting you over the hump into a brand-new stage. In the second weekend of the month, partners come into prominence in a way that reflects back upon profound career goals already percolating. You are seeking to find true alignment between your inner values and your actions in the world, whether by major works, or just in undertaking to perform acts of kindness as you proceed. Your values and your finances are in fluctuation and will be the better for it, although perhaps not as measured in dollars and cents. It is the time of fresh-faced resolutions that will by tradition fade into the woodwork as you slip into the same old patterns, like every February of your maturity, and yet this year might somehow be different. You are tasked with locating your most authentic Self, wherever that lurks inside, and reinforcing in whatever way you can a more sincere metamorphosis. The time has come! The dying caterpillar just can’t wait any longer!

Welcome to 2021, dear Aries! The beginning of the year is considered a time of renewal, and that may in fact be particularly true right now. Saturn and Jupiter are officially in Aquarius since the second half of December which also means they are not squaring your sign any longer. You may therefore feel quite a bit relieved from the pressure of previous months to try to get it all figured out. January begins with the Sun still transiting in Capricorn, for you emphasizing vocational pursuits. Mercury is also in Capricorn, and sextile to Neptune in Pisces on the 1st, while Venus in Sagittarius is found in a tight conjunction with the South Node of the Moon. These two aspects could promote a tendency towards escapism. On the other hand, you are full of new ideas, and your inspiration is at an all time high as you enter the year. Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on the 4th could additionally bring a powerful urge to succeed in your chosen field. Career and profession remain transformative for you, making this a good time to tap into your resolve, and get ahead of the game.

Mars, your ruling planet, enters Taurus on the 8th, having spent six months in our sign which did help to clarify your ambitions, and to focus your energies. Mars will be in Taurus for the next two months, were it places an emphasis on your financial situation, along what you value and your sense of security. The current state of the world implies that the way you make money may be changing. Mars transiting in Taurus could bring new ideas or opportunities. Additionally, Venus enters Capricorn on the 8th and therefore trines Mars in Taurus, linking career direction and your finances. Stay open to what presents itself, there may be collaborations in the works. Mercury also enters Aquarius on the 8th, making the second weekend of January a particularly social one. You could be connecting with new groups of people, perhaps who are helping you think outside of the box. Your creativity and originality might help you get ahead this month and find your niche.

The New Moon in Capricorn on January 12th conjoins Pluto in your career sector, and squares Eris in your sign as well. You could have had to let go of an idea surrounding your career, perhaps because of new limitations in place. This New Moon at the beginning of 2021 brings tremendous rebirth energy to your vocational sector. You may think that you have to figure it all out by yourself. However, with Saturn and Jupiter now transiting in the community sector of your chart, you could have more allies than you think. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need at this time. You could also find that your innermost values need to have a greater voice in what you intend career-wise. Set your intentions and have faith in the process that is unfolding. You will not be able to see the results immediately. You may also have to work very hard to bring yourself to a new and more comfortable spot. But innovation is at your fingertips, especially when it comes to your career and finances.

Uranus stations direct in Taurus on the 14th, and Jupiter in Aquarius squares Uranus on the 17th. There may be excitement in the air leading to the third weekend of January. The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th and transits your social sector until February 19th highlighting your place in the collectivity. During this period your friends and the people you associate with may play an important role in getting you ahead. There could also be a financial aspect to your collaborative projects. You may have to commit to a certain trajectory, and this may become more obvious as the Sun conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius on the 22nd and the 23rd.

The Full Moon in Leo on the 28th culminates in your creative sector. Self-expression is thus highlighted at the end of the month, and you may have an opportunity to broadcast your skills and gain recognition. The Leo Full Moon brightens what you love, what brings you pleasure, and what you do for fun. You are an original thinker and a creator with a unique perspective. It may be your time to shine so this is not when to shy away from the spotlight. You could be wrestling with the urge to take a conservative approach but this Full Moon is here to remind you that you need to take some creative risks. When you do what you love without restrictions, it doesn’t even feel like work. 

Mercury stations retrograde in the sign of Aquarius on the 30th where it will spend three weeks moving backward through your social sector before turning direct on the 20th of February. Your allegiance to a particular group of people may be changing around this time. You may feel the urge to explore what various communities have to offer, and to look more closely into who you decide to team up with, factors that could turn out to be crucial in the year ahead.

This month is a full one for you, Taurus, as you make your calendar transition, which might also be symbolic of significant shifts internally. There are astrological indications of a change in your psychic weather that affects your prospective way of being out in the world. Intimacy, too, is on your mind and in your heart these days, not least involving intimacy with yourself in your deeper layers. You are feeling a new sense of responsibility around the concept of partnership, and for doing it right. An evolving worldview is sneaking up on you, and coming to a head with the January 12th New Moon. You could be feeing a subtle discontent with things as they have been. It is vitally important in all this that you trust your intuition, and what it is attempting to convey, even as you find it more than just a bit fuzzy around the edges. These subtleties may well contain what will turn out in the end to amount to a great truth. Some sense of fundamental mission seems to be calling you to a larger sense of service, both to the community that surrounds you, and to the earth.

Happy New Year, dear Taurus, and congrats on getting through a very difficult year, likely more bold and beautiful than you already were. The New Year arrives with a lot of changes in the astrological skies. Jupiter and Saturn are now firmly installed in Aquarius which emphasize the career sector of your chart while also squaring your sign. You may find yourself gaining traction in regards to your professional life while also having to deal with more responsibilities. There may be opportunities related to your career that could offer growth this year. However, with Saturn squaring Taurus (by whole sign until 2023), it could mean that you have to relinquish a certain amount of comfort. It could be time to roll up your sleeves to make these opportunities happen. Mars just spent six months in Aries firing up the soul-sector of your chart where it may have brought greater awareness surrounding issues of self-assertion. You may be less willing to compromise these days. Mars enters Taurus on the 6th which brings significant energy to your sign until the beginning of March. What has been simmering without concrete form since last Summer may gain traction. You may have felt strongly about a certain situation without knowing how to act. Mars’s ingress in your sign will bring a change of pace. Thus your ability to act in the world could suddenly feel more at hand and full of changes in direction.

Venus , your ruling planet, remains in the sign of Sagittarius until the 8th. This is the sign where a potent Solar Eclipse (in mid-December) could potentially have triggered some anxieties around your finances or a contract you have with someone. There could be stress surrounding a dysfunctional collaboration which in turn is monopolizing a lot of your energy. Venus entering Capricorn on the 8th might help broaden your perspective for the rest of the month. You could feel a renewed sense of faith in connection with your long term goals. Venus trines Mars in Taurus on the 9th which helps open your mind to new possibilities.

Mercury also enters Aquarius on the 8th, and conjuncts Saturn on the 9th, Jupiter on the 11th, and squares Uranus in Taurus on the 12th; an initial roadblock may reveal itself to be a new avenue. Finances fluctuate. Stay open to changing your mind at the last minute about a current career conundrum. 

On the 12th, the New Moon in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto for a double dose of rebirth energies. This brings a potent reset for anything related to learning. Whether you have been on an educational journey, or a trajectory that has deeply changed and molded new philosophical perspectives for you in the last three years, this New Moon in Capricorn carries fresh power in this Higher Mind area of your life. The knowledge you have acquired over past months could become a greater focus and start to make a lot more sense. Your ability to apply what you have learned is about to get a lot more obvious in the months to come. Saturn in Aquarius squaring Mars in Taurus at the time of the New Moon also speaks again of the potential for a high workload, and responsibilities that comes with it. You may have to roll up your sleeves, put your head down, and power through the work. Uranus stations direct on the 14th after a six-month retrograde period in Taurus. Uranus moving direct could re-awaken a desire for more independence in your life while letting you enjoy relishing in a rebellious streak. You may have less patience to work under the authority of someone else at this time, so keep that in mind.

The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th joining Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury already transiting there and emphasizing your career. You could feel tension building up in the second half of the month leading to the First Quarter Moon in Taurus, on the 20th, which triggers the Mars/Uranus conjunction in your sign. You may find it hard now to reconcile your personal needs with your career obligations. You could feel the urge to break away from your routine in order to try something new and exciting. You could also feel polarized by your sense of duty, versus your need for freedom. The more of this rebellious energy you use to reach for new goals the better. Risk-taking is tempting and could very well pay off, especially if you can have a clear strategy in place. Otherwise, you may want to stay clear of impulsive reactions; you may end up regretting it later on. You might also have more energy for physical exercise, and that could be a good way to blow off some steam.

The Full Moon in Leo on the 28th lights up your home sector, emphasizing your family or your base of operation together with your career, so that you may be seeking an amalgam of both that works for you. Or you may be forced to divide your attention between your responsibilities at work and something that needs your attention at home.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th, and will be moving retrograde until February 20th, which might prompt you to again re-adjust your vocational trajectory. This is by no means a total reversal but is rather an opportunity to review and revise, delineating a clearer path for your career goals as you look to the year ahead.

This is another month of trials that will yet yield to triumph if you will allow it, Gemini. In these Covid days, attitude is everything. Life partners, whether in a personal or a business setting, are emphasized. This is so ever since the recent mid-December solar eclipse landed in your relationship sector. Actual intimacy is called for, and is essential for your well being, going forward. As you tune in, you are getting to know yourself in your very depths. In another significant area, you have an idealized conception of your work in the world these days, and will not be satisfied with anything less than a full-on match to your deepest values, and to your growing sense of mission to the community that surrounds you. Your very beliefs are in a cosmic process of adjustment, nearer to your true heart’s desire, and you seek a greater fit between your values and your prospective plans than you are perhaps consciously aware of. Through another contentious month you are finding a basis for your own spiritual evolution in the mirror of your evolving relationship dynamic with important partners.



The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology




Happy New Year, dear Gemini and congratulations on having made it through a tough 2020. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is currently in Capricorn, along with the Sun, which brings an emphasis to the area of your life that binds you to other people, whether this is by choice or by obligation. Saturn also has recently escaped Capricorn after two and half years. You’ve worked very hard over this period to gain more independence through structures that might not be your own. It doesn’t mean however that you are totally rid of your commitments and responsibilities to others. Mercury conjuncts Pluto on the 4th and that could bring up some heavy conversations or the more consciousness around a difficult situation. You may find that you must deal with lingering anxieties in connection with a relationship issue. There also could have been changes occurring since the second half of December with the recent Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius shaking up your relationship sector.

Mars leaves the sign of Aries on the 6th after a six-month transit in your social sector which found you reassessing your allegiances and the role you want to play in your community. Mars enters Taurus where it will transit until the beginning of March, reinforcing the need to address some of your unconscious patterns, and the way you are managing your stress.

Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th, along with Venus entering Capricorn on the same day. Mercury in Aquarius joins Saturn and Jupiter in the part of your chart that relates to education. You may be contemplating a new trajectory in this area of your life. There could be opportunities to expand your skills or learn new ones. There are possible developments related to learning as Mercury conjuncts Jupiter on the 11th, and squares Uranus on the 12th. You could have the desire to expand your reach in the world, or to gain more experience in your chosen field. This could be an excellent time to do so while Jupiter is transiting in your vision sector until the end of 2021. 

The first New Moon of the year occurs in Capricorn on January 12th in a conjunction with Pluto. This New Moon brings a powerful rebirth energy and it may be a good time to shed some of the heavy burdens you’ve been carrying. You could feel ready to close the chapter on the hardship and difficulties of this past year and this New Moon offers a potent incentive to do so. Mars in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius on the same day; getting at the roots of your motivations can help clarify your intentions for the year ahead. You may have a great deal of determination to get things done, however you will also want to recognize that success takes time. Patience and perseverance will get you where you want to go.

Uranus in Taurus stations direct on the 14th after a six-month retrograde period. A few days later, on the 17th, Jupiter in Aquarius squares Uranus, which could indicate a sudden change of pace. New opportunities could arise; however, impatience or restrictions could complicate things. The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th while Mars conjuncts Uranus on the 20th. Best to not rush things at this time. Proceed with caution, choosing which opportunities to pursue. It’s a good time for calculated risks but make sure you understand the responsibilities that come with what you are agreeing to. You may be excited about new avenues presenting themselves but the Sun conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on the 22nd and the 23rd could bring a sobering influence; you may have to contend with a heavier workload or it may be that you need better ways to manage your time in order to get everything done.
 
You could have a lot on your plate all month, while simultaneously contending with some unforeseen elements.  Establishing a clear strategy at the beginning of the year can help you delineate your objective. Scheduling some downtime may also increase your productivity in the long run. Many factors are competing for your attention as we enter this new year but you want to make sure you begin it on the right foot.

The Full Moon in Leo on the 28th highlights the ways in which you communicate with your entourage. You may be more aware of how social media, the internet and all the information circulating at the moment has a negative impact on your psyche. Or your work could be requiring you to be spending more time online than you would like. The Full Moon is a time of illumination, and it could be the perfect opportunity to evaluate the direction you want to take in the next year when it comes to keeping in touch with others.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th, turning direct on the 20th of February. This introspective time period will give you ample opportunity to align more authentically with your vision and organize your time accordingly.

The months do not get any less difficult, Cancer, but there are hidden rewards to be had. You have struggled all this past year to comprehend the true meaning of partnership in your life, and of your own journey toward wholeness, and this initial month leads to a better understanding of yourself at deep levels. As 2020 ended, the recent Full Moon in your sign signaled a renewed concentration of relationship realizations and transformations that carry over into outer world achievement and your mission of service that is also coming on strong. You are enjoined to look inside, and to find inspiration there for innovative future pathways to unfold, if you let them. Your challenge is to let go of past preconceptions, and to keep on letting go. Like the sculptor you are removing from the block of stone everything that is not your most authentic sense of Self. It is an amazing season of change that you are entering into; as Dickens once epitomized, “the best of times, and the worst of times,” and your attitude toward the unfolding events makes all the difference.



The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology



Happy New Year, dear Cancer, and congratulations on getting through 2020, hopefully braver and wiser than when you started. The year begins with the Sun in Capricorn emphasizing your partnerships and the people you lean on for support. Saturn transiting in Capricorn in the last two and a half years brought hard lessons in regards to setting better boundaries. You may be more able to commit, or less afraid of saying no, and this may also mean that you are pickier about who you let into your personal life. However, it is important that you don’t isolate yourself too much. Remember that people are here for you and it is only a matter of reaching out. Deeper conversations may come up during the first week of January as Mercury conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn on the 4th. You may feel like tackling difficult or taboo topics with someone in order to shed more light on a dynamic you share.

Mars enters the sign of Taurus on the 6th, after a six-month transit through the sign of Aries. Mars in Aries may have brought a lot of questions surrounding your career trajectory, things will start to ease off now. You may start to gain more momentum and clarity in your career. Mars in Taurus until the beginning of March brings energy to participate in your community. There may be some interesting opportunities brewing that help you step out of your comfort zone and connect with new types of people.

Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th and note that it will turn retrograde there at the end of the month. The messenger planet will therefore spend considerable time in Aquarius; a sign that is already emphasized because of Saturn and Jupiter’s presence there. These planets transiting in Aquarius are challenging you to confront some of your fears. You might have anxieties that need to be addressed, and these could have to do with belonging, or more specifically not belonging. Society is changing and so is your web of connections. Saturn’s presence in Aquarius could mean that you feel alienated and that you may have a tendency to respond to this feeling of alienation by isolating yourself and you may be feeling like you need to work through some of your fears and anxieties. Venus entering Capricorn, on the 8th as well, is a redeeming factor that could bring a connective influence. You could start to feel a stronger desire for the bonding experiences that were missing this past year. This second weekend of January is an excellent time to reach out to the people you love.

The first New Moon of the year occurs in the sign of Capricorn late evening on January 12th in your partnership sector. The New Moon is conjoined Pluto, which brings a double dose of rebirth energy. A New Moon represents the beginning of a new cycle of growth while Pluto is associated with transformation. Something powerful is occurring in connection to the ways in which you view relationships and what you need from them. Things have changed considerably for you in this regard over the last couple of years. You might have shed a lot of preconceived ideas about what partnerships represent. The time may have come to reset your stance and invite better relationship dynamics into your life.

Uranus stations direct in Taurus on the 14th and then a few days later receives a square from Jupiter in Aquarius. Your attention might be brought back again to a new project emerging in your community. You could be contemplating alternative ways of connecting with others or you may be called to work with a marginalized group of people.

The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th, where Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury are already transiting. All these planets being currently in Aquarius emphasizes intimate partnerships, contracts, business partners, and more extensively your anxieties and fears connected to your place in the world.

The First Quarter Moon in Taurus on the 20th could bring an exciting development. However, you may be asked to step out of your comfort zone in order to pursue it. You could have the opportunity to try new things and be required to take calculated risks. You may be doubting yourself or your abilities especially when the Sun conjuncts Saturn on the 22nd and the 23rd. However, your desires for new experiences can override your fears.

The Full Moon in Leo takes place on the 28th and highlights recent financial decisions. More extensively your sense of self-worth could come up for a better take. Your need for validation could feel greater right now, and the Full Moon could clarify some issues around self-worth that have been coming up. It is more difficult to get the support you crave with the social fabric around you being disrupted. This Full Moon may also bring unexpected praise from your admirers.

Finally, Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th and will move backward there until the 20th of February. The next three weeks will be a good time to review your contracts before making any final decisions.

This is yet another month of hardship for you, the same old difficulties and the same old fears, with perhaps a ray or two of light moving you forward. As the month and year begins, you are full of yourself in a good way, self-expression shining bright, with progress made on the inside. You are fully engaged in seeing how to take all that you have going and turn it to useful purpose, out in the world. New horizons beckon to the extent that you can get on board with your evolving worldview, and with that marriage between head and heart that allows you to align your work with your innermost values. This corresponds to an attitude of faith in the cosmos to be on your side and to see you through, and with what your Higher Self seems to be guiding you toward, in terms of service to others. As Covid continues to remind us, it will take all we have got, and all of us working together, to survive this thing, and for you to yet emerge from the dark passage of these winter months wiser and more whole than when you started.

Happy New Year dear Leo! Congratulations on getting through 2020 even bolder and stronger than when you began it. The New Year begins with an emphasis on your partnerships, with Saturn and Jupiter now firmly transiting in the relationship sector of your chart. The Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius from mid-December might have brought momentum for a romantic scenario or a personal project that requires a lot of your energy. Venus is still transiting in Sagittarius until the 8th, increasing your desire for experimentation and play, but there may also be a price to pay for doing so. Don’t shy away from asking for help; you might be surprised by how many people who are willing to back you up and support your vision.

The Sun in Capricorn until the 19th emphasizes your habits, health, physical exercise and the time you need daily to get everything done. There is no rest from your ambitions this month, and you may need to schedule some downtime; otherwise you run the risk of not having any at all. Mars enters Taurus on the 6th where it will bring considerable focus to the career sector of your chart until the beginning of March. You may feel a new kind of ambition burgeoning. The more you think outside of the box in terms of career the more it seems to work for you. At the same time, a partnership may be carrying some of your attention away from your goals. Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th bringing important dialogues in partnerships. You may be called to divide your attention or compromise in order to make something work. You may feel a certain amount of tension between your needs and the needs of someone else in your life. 

Venus enters Capricorn on the 8th and trines Mars in Taurus, which carries a supportive influence to the vocational sector of your chart. You are committed to your work and it can be meaningful at this time to connect intentions and energy toward your career goals.

The New Moon in Capricorn, taking place on the 12th, is conjunct with Pluto. This brings tremendous focus to the health sector of your chart. This beginning time of the year is an excellent time of course to set new goals, and the first New Moon of the year brings the perfect incentive to do so. For extra traction, Mars in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius at the time of the New Moon. What you envision now may take time to flourish but new shapes are emerging. The habits you commit to at this time can support your ambitious desires for the year ahead. You may feel the need to get more serious about integrating healthy eating habits and commit to physical exercise. With Saturn in Aquarius highlighting your partnership sector your commitment is high and you may be considering activities that can be done in tandem.

Uranus in Taurus stations direct in your vocational sector on the 14th after a six-month retrograde period. Uranus in Taurus has been bringing an innovative edge to your entrepreneurial spirit in the last two years. Exciting career ideas are emerging or already in motion. The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th joining Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury which are already transiting here. There may be a partnership deepening that forces you to divide your attention again between your personal career goals and a team project. Mars and Uranus conjunct on the 20th during the First Quarter Moon in Taurus highlighting an exciting development in connection with your life's work. The opportunities arising at the beginning of the year may seem crazy or far fetched but sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. The bolder you are the more it has the potential to pay off.

The First Full Moon of 2021 takes place in your sign on the 28th. The Sun and Jupiter are conjunct in Aquarius while opposing the Full Moon in Leo. The light of the Moon shines brightly on your needs and desires. It may be that what you want involves a compromise. Jupiter influencing this Full Moon implies that there may be an exaggerated quality to your emotions. Mars and Uranus still conjunct in your career sector are also squaring the Full Moon showing that there could be tension between your needs, your ambitions, and your desire to invest in a partnership to make it work. You could be trying to reconcile disparate pieces of a puzzle, which in turn creates tension in the various areas of your life. You can’t divide yourself in three but you can probably make things work with a few compromises.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th of January and will be moving retrograde until the 20th of February, giving you ample time to review and renegotiate the terms of a partnership. In any case you will be looking into things in that way. Nothing is set in stone, but you may be working hard at the end of the month and through the weeks ahead to get all of your desires met.

This month sees you through another somewhat difficult passage, Virgo, which also has room for introspection that will eventually pave the way for your next stage. You are simultaneously more fully invested than ever in investigating the possibility for relationship to blossom forth in your life. There is an element of idealism in this picture, and you should add a dose of caution as you can find the place for it. Adventures in intimacy lead you to unexpected realizations, and your task is to stay as open as you can to possibility. There is a way as you continue this exploration that your fundamental beliefs are opening up, and that your learning curve heightens your burgeoning self-awareness. You are deep diving to the inside all the while, greatly augmented at the very end of January by the retrograde of Mercury, your ruler. As Mercury slows you are also mulling over your mission of service to others. Your creativity is stimulated and transforming, especially during the month’s second half. The eventual consequences of all these inner meanderings are, in the end, quite telling for your emerging future self.

Happy New Year, dear Virgo, and welcome to 2021! Your head could be in the clouds at the very beginning of January. Mercury sextiles otherworldly Neptune in Pisces on the 1st, highlighting a creative project or a romantic scenario. You may well be dreaming about what you would like to accomplish this year. We are living in uncertain times but with this aspect you could be feeling a sense of peace as we transition into the New Year. There are still a million things on your to-do list – however you also have a great capacity for relaxation and joy at the moment. You are thinking about home and family concerns. A domestic or a romantic situation, for example, which could have outlived its purpose, perhaps. Things are becoming increasingly clear. The recent Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius from mid-December could have brought the focus you needed, especially when it comes to your home or your intimate relationships. Once you see the issue, things begin to sort themselves out. They could take time to change, but you have the patience to witness the process. Venus in Sagittarius transiting in your home sector near the South Node of the Moon could feel like you are ready to let go and trust what is unfolding.

On the 4th, Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn could find you briefly obsessing over a romantic partner or a project you’ve been working on. Your consciousness is there regarding your creativity and the ways that that is changing. Put attention is on what brings you happiness, and you are ready to invite more joy into your life. Mars leaves Aries on the 6th and enters Taurus, representing your Higher Mind sector, which brings support for your visions and expanded worldview. This is after a six-month emphasis that has been there on shared assets and the contracts that bind you to others. Big ideas that have been simmering may suddenly feel close at hand. Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th and squares Mars, stimulating ideas while perhaps also making you aware of the logistical issues surrounding what you want to achieve. Venus enters Capricorn on the same day, where it will transit until the end of the month. Venus in Capricorn brings support to your sign with a trine aspect and can boost your creativity. Your desire for connection and love could be highlighted all month and it may be a good time to deepen a romantic scenario. Venus trine Mars in Taurus in this second weekend of the month can bring up your long term commitment to a project or to someone. 

Mercury, your ruler, conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius on the 10th, Jupiter on the 11th and squares Uranus in Taurus on the 12th. There could be a tendency during this week to lose yourself in a labyrinth of logistical issues or health concerns. Saturn and Jupiter now firmly in Aquarius emphasize your health and habits in 2021. You may have some ambitious resolutions for the year ahead, and you will have the stamina to see them through. Uranus in Taurus on the other hand indicates an urge to get more experimental with your thinking and even with your habits. You may need more space to be on your own and try different ideas.

The Capricorn New Moon this month takes place on the 12th, and is conjunct Pluto, the planet associated with transformation and rebirth. This New Moon occurs in your creative and romantic sector once again highlighting the need to shed some heaviness and bring a more playful approach to what you love. The Capricorn New Moon brings incentive to realign with your original love whether artistic, romantic or related to your children. Pleasure and productivity can co-exist but it’s important to recalibrate the dosage especially if what used to be pleasurable has become too mundane.

Uranus in Taurus turns direct on the 14th and receives a square from Jupiter on the 17th offering exciting perspectives surrounding health and nutrition. You may be searching for alternative medicine to deal with your health or simply be interested in expanding your knowledge while adopting a more holistic approach to wellness. The Sun entering Aquarius on the 19th could have you thinking about your vitality especially when the Sun conjuncts Saturn on the 22nd and the 23rd. It’s a good idea to take things slowly at this time and avoid stressing yourself out, especially with things over which you have no control.

The Full Moon in Leo on the 28th represents a culmination of the month and its cycle of change for you, and could help you shed light on outmoded patterns surrounding your day-to-day habits, or your ambitions, versus your need for tranquility. These things that are not always reconcilable. You may sometimes have a tendency to put too much on your plate which in turn creates a lot of physical tension as you try to get everything done. This Full Moon in Leo is a perfect opportunity to get clear about your underlying motivations and how these may be affecting your well-being.

This month represents an exciting new beginning, Libra, at least by mental reflection on the year-number, with its idea of letting go of the dysfunctional past, and is paradoxically both that and more of the same old same old, with difficulties still present that have plagued you all this past and crazy year. A twist in the astrological patterning leads you into new directions. Your creative self-expression is taking off in new and interesting ways, while you are getting more real with the fundamental transformation taking place at the very core of your being. You benefit by simply acknowledging that this just isn’t Kansas anymore. There is a novel and perhaps joyful sense of responsibility percolating through you for what you conceive and execute on, while a powerful sense of intuition continues to reveal surprising truths that affect you more and more as the month unfolds. Partnership is powerful for you now, and helps you to uncover a determination to inhabit your most authentic self, going forward. Thus, while you cannot change the circumstances you find yourself in, you can and must change your response to these, becoming in the process your own hero.

Happy New Year, dear Libra, and congratulations on getting through 2020 hopefully stronger and wiser from its trials. As the month begins, your ruling planet, Venus, is still transiting in Sagittarius and is in a tight conjunction with the South Node. There may therefore be a powerful incentive at the beginning of the year to let go of old notions that are holding you back. You may feel the need to purge old thought patterns. Because Venus is currently in your communication sector, thus could help you rethink your connections to the internet and social media, as well as other forms of communication that you engage with. Technology permeates our lives more than ever, which does allow us to connect with our friends and family long-distance. Unfortunately, we do not always have the capacity to filter all the information and ideas that are automatically presented to us. As this monthly cycle gets underway you might be revising the ways in which you share your ideas, your work, and more extensively the ways you stay connected to the people you care about. The Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius that took place in mid-November brought some realizations surrounding all these things, including how you stay connected. The effect of this Solar Eclipse will continue to reverberate in the months ahead which can help you rethink the way you communicate with others and express yourself. 

On January 6th to the 8th, Mars enters Taurus and subsequently Venus, your ruler, enters Capricorn. The trine between these two personal planets suggests that relationship in your life is more greatly emphasized. When Mars finally leaves the sign of Aries, where it has been transiting for the last six months, it could bring a shift in your partnerships, after a long period of intense focus, and perhaps negotiations. Mars will be in Taurus until the beginning of March bringing attention to your intimacy with partners, also agreements that you have with them, as well as contracts and alliances in general, and how these help you move ahead in your chosen direction.

Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th as well, where it joins Saturn and Jupiter, bringing a great deal of focus and energy to tackle creative projects, romantic scenarios and more extensively emphasizes your children whether these are literal or metaphorical ones. Venus being now in Capricorn in your home and family sector represents a change of pace also. During the second weekend of the month, you may therefore feel like turning your attention inward preferring to focus on personal matters. Venus transiting in Capricorn all month could prompt you to deal with unfinished business at home, such as renovations or family concerns, so that you may feel like investing some money into your home or beautifying your space. Venus in Capricorn trine Mars in Taurus could also highlight support coming from a business partner. You may however have to contend with some unpredictable factors that are out of your control which may become more acute as you progress through the month. You can gain a lot of traction in your creative endeavors even if some elements remain uncertain. The right balance of foresight and flexibility can get you where you want to go. You might have to take some calculated risks to get ahead.

On January 12th, the New Moon in Capricorn conjoins Pluto, and brings a renewing influence to your home sector. There has been transformation for you in thus area for many months, and this transit could serve as a capper, perhaps indicating that an old way of existing doesn’t work for you anymore. You might even be saying goodbye to a home or a lifestyle. You might not be sure of what lays ahead, but new seeds are already sprouting for you in unfamiliar soils. There could definitely as well be a compulsive quality surrounding this New Moon, or a powerful urge to transform something in your life that has become outdated. Information perhaps comes to light that can help you to move ahead.  Mars in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius at the time of this New Moon, and this could be your cue to use patience at this time. You are also likely to meet some resistance towards the accomplishments of your goals; yet you can get ahead with proper planning and a calm mindset.

Uranus stations direct in Taurus on the 14th and comes into a square with Jupiter in Aquarius on the 17th, which for you accentuates your need to break free from limiting circumstances, and to dig down inside yourself using your powerful intuition to obtain your own answers.

The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th, where Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury are already transiting. All these planets currently in Aquarius emphasize your creative sector, and carry a lot of energy for artistic projects, self-expression, romance, children and more extensively what brings you pleasure. Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus on the 20th could also bring up a few surprises. There may be some resistance coming from you or someone else which could put a strain on your intimate connections and your collaborations. It’s best to allow yourself and your loved ones the space to move freely at this time and regroup later.

The Full Moon in Leo, on the 28th, illuminates your social sector and your place within a community. This is an important juncture when you are feeling into how your creative contributions directly affect your community, or the society. You may receive fresh acknowledgement for your work, or gain clarity regarding the role you want to play out in the world and and groups you want to associate yourself with.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on January 30th and will be moving backward through this sign until February 20th. Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius will be your cue to bring hard work and better structures to what you love, whether this is a project, a romantic scenario, or potentially, your connections to your children.


This is another month of change and revelation for you, Scorpio, similar to the past few, yet different in tone, and not only due to the ebullient feeling of a new year just beginning. The astrology reveals strong activity on your home front, ever since the closing weeks of the previous year. You could be dealing with issues of your family of origin, or that of your current dwelling. This confluence of outer planet archetypes may also be bringing you to yourself in new ways. You might be called to a form of quiet internal contemplation or discover a joyful sense of newfound responsibility to nothing but your own acquisition of self-knowledge. In the second weekend of the month, partners become more of a focus also, helping to convey new perspectives and further information. Your intuition is powerful now, and messages come to you from many sources, provided you keep yourself open to them, including your important relationships. The New Moon of January 12th is powerfully transformative for you especially in terms of relationship issues and how you put out and receive communication. Only the most profound truth will actually appeal.

Happy New Year, dear Scorpio! The major shifts that occurred in December continue to reverberate at the beginning of the year. Saturn and Jupiter are now officially transiting in Aquarius, emphasizing your domestic situation and more extensively turning your attention towards family matters. You could be craving greater security, or autonomy, in connection with your living arrangements. Saturn in Aquarius, active since the recent winter solstice of December 21st, may be highlighting major issues surrounding your home, including your family. You could be feeling restricted in terms of what is possible or find that considerable effort and planning will be required in the next few years to restructure that part of your life. 

The recent Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, from mid-December, brought attention to your financial situation which may be closely connected to your values and what other people can offer you. With Venus in Sagittarius still very close to the South Node of the Moon at the beginning of the year, you may be forced to assess any drain on your finances and adjust accordingly. It’s a good time to make a budget for yourself and be aware of unnecessary spending. You may have an opportunity to earn money through a creative project especially with the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn transiting in your communication sector in the first half of the month.

On the 6th of January Mars finally leaves the sign of Aries and enters the sign of Taurus, corresponding to your partnership sector. This is a significant ingress for Scorpios since Mars traditionally rules your sign. Mars will be in Taurus for two months carrying a lot of energy for your relationships in general, including business partnerships. You may be more aware of inherent differences between you and others. You could be forced to work cooperatively and make compromises in order to get what you want. Then, on the 8th, Mercury enters Aquarius and squares Mars in Taurus. This aspect could bring some heated arguments or debates for a few days especially, at home. Stay mindful of frustration or tension building up, and find ways to channel this energy into creative or physical outlets. Also on the 8th, Venus enters your communication sector in Capricorn, and trines Mars, which may be your redeeming factor. Venus in Capricorn for the rest of the month could stimulate conversations and offer insights into your communication patterns which in turn could help you mediate conflicting scenarios.

The first New Moon of the year occurs in Capricorn on the night of the 12th. This New Moon could bring along with it a powerful renewal, as it conjoins Pluto, the modern ruler of Scorpio. Your communication with others is greatly emphasized. Pluto is as well a planet associated with death, regeneration, power and compulsion. The more important factor could be the unearthing of your own darkness which ultimately leads to a fuller integration of your unconscious patterns. Mars in Taurus squaring Saturn in Aquarius at the time of this New Moon also shows that this powerful energy rebirth could also be met with significant restrictions. Patience will be required to move through any limitations you are experiencing towards the accomplishments of your goals.

Uranus stations direct in your partnership sector in Taurus on the 14th after a six-month retrograde period. Uranus has been in Taurus for the last two years shaking up the way you think about relationships. There could be radical changes occurring in that part of your life that stem from a need to have greater freedom. The first two weeks of January may have brought a lot of negotiation with others, and this mid-month timing could represent a breaking point or a change of pace. The second half of January could bring volatility to this area, especially with Mars conjoining Uranus in Taurus on the 20th, a day after the Sun’s entry into Aquarius, also indicating a shift in your energy. A situation that feels limiting could be rapidly evolving.

The First Quarter Moon in Taurus on the 20th emphasizes recent tensions that have been building up. Mars in Taurus conjunct Uranus there indicates surprises and unexpected events that bring new realizations. The Sun in Aquarius joins Saturn and Jupiter over the following week, emphasizing family matters. On the 22nd and the 23rd the Sun in Aquarius conjoins Saturn, which could highlight the current limitations you are facing. Then, the Sun squaring Uranus in Taurus a few days later on the 26th may bring innovative ways to work through these perceived limitations. The Sun also helpfully conjuncts Jupiter on the 28th, in the time of the Full Moon.

The Full Moon on the 28th occurs in the bold and fiery sign of Leo, augmented by the Sun’s conjunction with Jupiter, in Aquarius, opposing the Moon, while Mars (with Uranus) squares the Full Moon from Taurus. This potent Fixed sign T-square highlights any current tensions circulating between your home, your career and your partnerships. A T-square is made up of at least three points, two in opposition with one another and a third point squaring both of these, and indicates an increase of tension and a focus on the third position. In fixed signs, this T-square displays a high degree of strength, endurance and a strong will to move forward with your relationship connections as a means to resolve the other issues. This Full Moon culminating in Leo in your vocational sector may therefore indicate a time when your efforts towards the pursuits of your ambitions are starting to bear fruit. It could be difficult to reconcile your vision with what is currently available to you, but the end of January brings hope. It might be that you will find success by synthesizing all three factors of work, inner contemplation, and your partnership connections.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on January 30th and will be moving backward through this sign until February 20th. Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius continues to highlight the current logistical issues surrounding your home base, and family matters, as you enter into an introspective process surround these areas. This three-week period will help you assess the solidity of your foundations.

This is a month of change for you, Sagittarius, coming in the midst of continued societal trials and rough edges and their attendant difficulties. In the wake of last month’s telling mid-December solar eclipse in your sign, it is a question of your very identity. Every so often you must shed previous incarnations, as the growing snake sheds his outdated skin, and this might be one of those times. Not everything will transform of course; there is the continuity of your basic personality. What is likely to morph will be those parts of yourself that you have literally outgrown. In reading the signs, surprising shifts in your day-to-day habit patterns should be noted, as they might turn out to be significant. Your key relationships are quite important now as well, and might serve to guide you into prospective future involvements possessing a more studied sense of mission. You are essentially exploring hitherto unknown or unattempted facets of your own authenticity. This month can also be characterized as a time when unexpected information is likely to come your way through unusual channels, and is in fact a terrific time to journal your inner experiences around these matters.

Happy New Year, dear Sagittarius, and welcome to a brand-new you in 2021! The recent Solar Eclipse in your sign last mid-December may have brought some kind of reset which is still being felt at the beginning of the year. You may have been forced to shed old ideas about yourself or someone close to you and this could feel both exhilarating and a little bit scary. Venus is still conjunct the South Node in Sagittarius at the beginning of the year which may prompt you to re-evaluate a partnership scenario or a love interest. Venus in your sign could have you feeling extra romantic. The proximity of the South Node to Venus indicates that you may also be forced to let go or surrender to a process. Do not confuse fantasy or vague attractions for an actual viable relationship. Venus and the South Node in your sign right now could indicate that there is a certain karmic scenario playing out. Staying clear of dubious people could help you navigate the first week of January. There is no need to nail yourself to a cross for someone who is not as invested as you are.

The Sun in Capricorn until the 19th, along with Mercury and Pluto there, lights up the financial sector of your chart. Mercury conjunct with Pluto on the 4th could be a good time to sort out your assets and evaluate your financial situation. This aspect helps any work that requires attention to details or research. You will also bring greater awareness to the ongoing transformation of your values, active all this past year.

Mars enters Taurus on the 6th, after a six-month transit in Aries. Mars will be in Taurus until March 4th bringing energy to the health and day-to-day or workplace sector of your chart. The beginning of the year is usually an excellent time to set resolutions. Mars in Taurus brings reinforcement to get physical, to energize new habit patterns, and may be an excellent time to deal with your stress while establishing healthier regimens.

Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th and joins Saturn and Jupiter already in Aquarius which brings an emphasis on the communication sector of your chart. You may become increasingly aware of the importance of the internet when it comes to exchanging your ideas and connecting with others. Venus enters Capricorn this same day, and trines Mars in Taurus, which could help you organize your schedule to maximize your time which in turn could help you increase your cash flow. Relationships are on your mind as well, and could benefit. With a little bit of planning Venus and Mars both transiting in Earth signs for the rest of January could also help you get more productive.

The world is changing rapidly and you could be contemplating new ways to use technologies to simplify your life. It may be that you have no other choice but to migrate some of your work online in the next year. The reality is that the world is very quickly getting digital whether you like it or not. Your ruling planet Jupiter transiting in Aquarius until the end of 2021 along with Saturn may bring growth opportunities surrounding technologies.

On the 12th of January, the New Moon in Capricorn conjoins Pluto in your financial sector. This is a powerful juncture, and signals new beginnings for you especially in terms of your values, your resources, and your understanding of your financial philosophy. The beginning of 2021 brings an emphasis on your income and what is possible for the year ahead. Pluto was the ruler of the underworld in classical mythology and is associated with the mineral wealth that is found underground, hence the term “plutocracy” for wealth. This New Moon emphasizes your finances and perhaps what you are currently sitting on in terms of assets. You may have a lot at your disposition but you may also need to get proactive in order to maximize your situation. Saturn in Aquarius squaring Mars in Taurus features prominently in this New Moon, and shows you’re your personal growth, while inspired, could require focus, determination and a step-by-step approach.

Uranus in Taurus turns direct on the 14th and squares Jupiter in Aquarius on the 17th which has the potential to bring a certain level of restlessness to your life, along with new ideas and realizations. You might be reeling a bit, due to unforeseen stressors. Or you might have to contend with new information that throws a wrench in a carefully laid plan; you do best to be prepared for the unexpected during the second half of January.

Staying flexible can help you move through the days leading to the First Quarter Moon in Taurus on the 20th, which triggers once again the Mars-Uranus conjunction. You could feel like breaking away from a limiting situation and it's important to exert some self-control while allowing the erratic energy of Mars and Uranus to find a proper outlet. Physical activities could be an excellent way to deal with tension at this time.

On the 28th, the Full Moon in the sign of Leo might bring some acknowledgement or recognition your way. Your learning curve is high right now and new ideas flow. You could receive attention for your ideas or teachings and gain more visibility for what you know. Whatever comes through at the end of the month, it’s important that you give yourself proper rest as you may have a tendency to overwork.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th which may bring an opportunity to slow down and review your communication strategies. You could also revise logistics surrounding technology, media, publishing or any other medium you use to communicate your ideas.

This is another month of personal growth for you, Capricorn, a time of rapid metamorphosis to cap off previous weeks and months of change, as you seize the day in this new and more promising year. You have come through an interesting winter solstice of continued transformation over the previous ten days. This in particular includes inner areas deep within your psyche, that you can barely get a glimpse of when restricted to your conscious mentality. Relationship is also an important mirror for you as January continues to unfold, at least up to the dramatic New Moon in your sign on the 12th, followed by Moon’s First Quarter a week later – on the 20th – when your self-expression flourishes in novel and unexpected ways. The connection that you make between inner and outer is vital as you mull over who and what you really are. Your identity is admittedly vaster than you otherwise might have considered. This inner work is a vital piece of what you must navigate in order to get where you are going with respect to your own ultimate transformation; you therefore head into a new stage of your existence forearmed and better prepared.

Happy New Year, dear Capricorn and cheers to the resilience you have built during a difficult 2020! The Sun is currently transiting in your sign along with Mercury, which brings a stimulating influence to kick start 2021. You could be feeling revitalized and ready to face the future with all your might.

Venus is still transiting near the South Node in Sagittarius at the beginning of the month helping you shed a lot of old misconceptions about love and self-worth. A profound revitalizing process was set in motion with the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius in mid-December which may have triggered greater lucidity surrounding inner narratives. A process related to letting go of unconscious behaviors that undermines your confidence is well underway.

Mercury in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces on the 1st, and this can help you get inspired for a creative project. Mercury conjunct Pluto on the 4th brings depth to your conversation and may help you clarify your intentions for the year ahead. You may be more persuasive right now which can help you convince the right people and it could be a good time to market yourself and your work. Mars enters Taurus on the 6th after a six-month transit in Aries. Mars in Taurus until March 4th is in a supportive trine with your sign which means its martial influence can be beneficial. Steady growth is possible at the beginning of the year especially when it comes to your personal project.

Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th and joins Saturn and Jupiter already transiting here. Your finances is an area of your life that comes into focus for the year ahead. You have the ability to bring a solid reform to that part of your life. Saturn in Aquarius until 2023 may be your cue to get serious about your long term financial goals. 

Venus entering Capricorn on the same day for the rest of the month can boost your confidence and give you a greater appreciation for music, art and well made objects. Venus trines Mars on the second weekend of the month could be an excellent time for a romantic date or to get creative.

The first New Moon of the year occurs in your sign on the 12th, in conjunction with Pluto, therefore carrying a powerful incentive to shed lingering fears, and to increase your consciousness surrounding what you might be able to regard as your true identity. This is a potent juncture for you and for your process of growth; not only the beginning of a new year, it's also the beginning of a fresh cycle in connection with who you want to be in the world. Your powers are increasing along with your ability to change your reality, and align it with your visions of a better future. Saturn in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus at the time of this New Moon and you can take this to mean that a lot of the work lies ahead, and might be connected to making a creative project go, or become more lucrative. Aligning your passions and your income could be a driving factor that you need. You will want to get behind your intentions at the beginning of this year. The Sun entering Aquarius on the 19th kicks things into gear and can help you take concrete steps towards a goal. 

Mars conjunct Uranus on the 20th may bring exciting ideas and inspiration. You may also feel a financial pressure in the second half of the month. On one hand you are inspired by a project but on the other hand you may not be willing to take a huge financial risk. You may need to balance your restlessness and your need for novelty with a good dose of planning; when you do you will get there.

The Full Moon this month occurs in Leo on the 28th highlighting your intimate partnerships and more extensively your business contracts and collaborative alliances. Issues of self and other could dominate as you reference your creative projects with partnership and with your emerging sense of your values. You may be getting positive feedback from someone who believes in your work, or there could be financial backing that becomes available for you. You may become aware of possible resources you hadn’t thought about. Your desire to gain financial independence could be strong in 2021. However, this Full Moon also illuminates the stability that comes from other people’s resources and contribution. What binds you to others for better or for worse comes to the forefront, perhaps to help you delineate a clearer trajectory. If you are part of a team, you may become aware of the need to strike a balance between your personal goals and the goals of the group. Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn the day of the Full Moon speaks of self-esteem and the need for validation. Your desires can have a powerful edge at this time, making you less likely to want to compromise. You are also feeling serious about what you want which can help you get ahead.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th for the next three weeks emphasizing reviewing and realigning your income. This Mercury Retrograde could help you get clearer about your financial goals for the year ahead. It also may be your opportunity to clarify your aims in general for 2021.

This is a rather strange month for you, Aquarius, with the same societal and personal difficulties as in previous months, and yet with several novel twists. In this new year timing, you will find yourself investigating your internal depths with far greater attention than usual, and to greater purpose. Groups, friendships, your connection to society in general, and your future plans, also get an extreme boost for you, and focus, in this transition. Your very identity, how you see yourself in the world and interacting with others, is also on the cosmic agenda, with Saturn and Jupiter newly residing in Aquarius. In particular, the second weekend of January is quite significant, because Mercury joins these two important “social planets” in your sign. Outer world performance joins inner investigations in this thoughtful two- or three-week period at the beginning of January, and this represents an unconscious process of deep intuition, although these topics are also the subject of a great deal of conscious thought. You are enjoined to seize the day in this new year timing; the consequences of this first month will be felt all through 2021, and strongly reflected in your relationships as well at month’s end.

Welcome to 2021, dear Aquarius! You who love to explore novel things will find that the spotlight is on you as we begin the year. This is because with Saturn and Jupiter now firmly installed in your sign, you have tons of energy for investing in yourself. You may have had the privilege to see in the nighttime skies the conjunction between these two planets, occurring exact on the Solstice, which heralded the beginning of a 200-year Air sign period for this important world transit. For you personally, Saturn and Jupiter transiting in your sign means you may be ready to step up your game and get serious about your long term goals. These two planets will bring constructive energy to your sign and can help you build stronger foundations in your life.

The year begins with the Sun still transiting in Capricorn along with Mercury. You may be feeling contemplative and in need of solitude during the first half of the month. Introspection will feel restorative, and it’s a good time to take stock of the past year before the Sun enters your sign on the 19th of January. Mercury sextiles Neptune in Pisces on the 1st, and this augments intuition and creativity. You may be playing with different ideas related to how you make money. Mercury conjunct with Pluto on the 4th is an excellent aspect for research on this or other questions; you will need to get to the bottom of something.

Mars enters Taurus on the 6th which brings a lot of focus to the home sector of your chart for the next two months. Mars in Taurus could increase your desire for security pushing you to deal with your domestic life more actively.

On the 8th, Mercury enters Aquarius and squares Mars, bringing rushed thinking or frustrations. Venus also enters Capricorn on this same day, directing your attention somewhat to interior matters. You may feel more confrontational than usual, and it may be best to stay clear from debates or impulsive decisions until the end of the weekend. Physical exercise could help you release tension and clear your mind. Mercury conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on the 9th could continue to bring frustration but it could also bring sharper thinking. You may be able to sustain considerable intellectual effort and it’s a good time to tackle anything that requires concentration. Your perspective widens considerably by the 11th when Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in Aquarius. Exciting new developments could be just around the corner. 

On the 12th, the New Moon takes place in the sign of Capricorn, corresponding to your sector of dream realities and inner process, and is conjunct with Pluto, associated with transformation, death, rebirth. This New Moon brings a potent reset in the part of your chart that relates to the unconscious and the behaviors of your shadow self. The last few years have brought much needed clarity in connection with some deeper aspects of your psyche. You have become aware of old programming and thought patterns that do not serve you well especially related to your sense of agency in the world and your ambitious nature. This New Moon is an important juncture in regard to these considerations. Now you have more lucidity surrounding these matters, and you are also more connected to your sense of power. Saturn transiting in Aquarius until 2023 is your cue to build a reality that is closer to your deeper self.

Uranus, which is the modern ruling planet of Aquarius, stations direct on the 14th in the home sector of your chart. This is also where Mars is already transiting giving extra energy to home and family concerns. Uranus in Taurus brings a thunderous desire for space and perhaps the desire for a more self-sufficient life-style. There may however be a few challenges you need to get through before you can get what you want.

The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th and will transit in your sign until the 19th of February.
The conjunction between Mars and Uranus on the 20th, coincident with the First Quarter Moon, continues to shake up the foundational structures of your life. The momentum that’s been building in the first half of the month will start to take external shape. You may begin to feel a more solid sense of direction even though things are in flux. The Sun conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on the 22nd and the 23rd calls for a realistic assessment of your current situation. You may be feeling quite ambitious while simultaneously feeling limited by the current circumstances. Do not let these restrictions darken your sense of perspective. The Sun squaring Uranus on the 26th could help you think outside of the box and find innovative solutions.

On the 28th, the Full Moon in Leo highlights your partnerships and close collaborators. You may be asked to consider the perspective of someone important in your life. Relationships provide a substantial mirror for you in what you are attempting to achieve on your own, and this is a quite significant configuration, when you will be balancing self and other, along with family considerations. The Full Moon in Leo shines brightly on the important contribution and support you receive from the people you love. You may feel a certain level of tension between your personal desires and the compromise needed to make a partnership work. This Full Moon may also bring the culmination of a negotiation process and perhaps some much needed clarity.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th; you may have to refine your ideas around a goal and the next three to five weeks will be the perfect opportunity to do so. Mercury will station direct on February 20th, and escape its retrograde shadow in March, giving you some time to strategize before fully launching yourself into 2021.

This is another interesting and significant month for you, Pisces, as you contemplate future directions and where to put your creative energies to the wheel most effectively for yourself and for your planet. The recent solar eclipse from mid-December lit up your career sector and posed the question of how your deepest principles come into play as you contemplate your outer presence and your work in the world, and as you chart your pathway forward. You have a great deal of determination at this time to put your money on what you most sincerely value, to the exclusion of all else. This aligns with the months-long evolution of your goals and your societal presence that has been cooking in the caldron of the massive transformation of the society, during this significant Covid reset. You have had plenty of time to think and to meditate on internal matters, and this continues and even accelerates in this new month and year, right from the very beginning. The Capricorn New Moon of January 12th is extremely significant for you in that regard, and could signal a major course correction in the works for you as the month continues to unfold.

Happy New Year, dear Pisces and congrats on getting through a tough 2020! The New Year arrives with a lot of changes in the astrological skies. Jupiter and Saturn are now firmly installed in Aquarius. Saturn will be transiting in Aquarius until the beginning of 2023 while Jupiter (your traditional ruling planet) will be in Aquarius until the end of 2021. The Aquarius part of your chart is receiving a lot of attention which may relate to your unconscious patterns and what motivates you at a deeper level. The part of yourself that has no desire of fitting in, the hidden eccentric, the one who doesn’t follow the rules and is not even interested in popular opinions. You may start to feel an increased desire to step away from the hustle and bustle to return to a quieter and more contemplative existence. Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius represents a period of introspection where you could find yourself realigning with forgotten parts of yourself.

Your needs surrounding your friendships are also changing, and you may be interested in meeting people who are more aligned with your own philosophical inclinations. Mars enters Taurus on the 6th of January, after spending six months in the financial sector of your chart. Mars’s ingress into Taurus brings attention to your siblings and your neighborhood for the next two months. Mars in Taurus may also highlight your relationship with social media and increase your desire to communicate with your entourage. Venus enters Capricorn on the 8th and trines Mars in Taurus on the weekend of the 9th. This may be the beginning of a busier time for you in terms of social obligations. Finding your voice and understanding your role within a group of people could feature prominently in the weeks ahead. However, with Mercury entering Aquarius on the 8th and stationing retrograde there at the end of January a deeper process of revision is at work within your psyche that may require periods of solitude and contemplations amidst these social obligations.

Late on the 12th, the New Moon in Capricorn comes along, conjoined with Pluto, associated with deep transformation and rebirth. The New Moon is also a time of renewal which means this particular one is extremely potent for intention setting. The way you see yourself in the world and the role you want to play is changing. You may feel called towards a different trajectory, one that is more aligned with your values. There may still be a lot of uncertainty in your life but you are gaining clarity regarding the type of communities and people you want to surround yourself with. Uranus stations direct in Taurus on the 14th and Jupiter squares Uranus on the 17th awakening the rebellious side of your nature. You may feel a strong urge to break free from restrictions. It may be wise to connect to your deeper motivations for doing so. There could be innovative opportunities and radical solutions at hand. However, self-awareness is key during these types of transits.

The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th where it will transit until it enters your sign on the 19th of February. This may increase your desire for introspection in the weeks ahead before the Sun carries its vitalizing influence into your sign in a month from now. Allow yourself some quiet time to unwind from the news cycle if you can. Mars conjoined Uranus in Taurus on the 20th may bring an increase in communication that really sizzles with excitement or else only serves to frazzle your nerves.

The Full Moon in Leo on the 28th illuminates the health sector of your chart and brings up the powerful connection between your mind and your body. You could gain clarity surrounding how much your unconscious affects your physical well-being and vice-versa. Again, unplugging from social media and the incessant news cycle may bring the needed break your mind and body truly need at this time.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th and will be moving retrograde until the 20th of February, and beyond when you consider its retrograde shadow. This particular Mercury Retrograde will be an excellent time to tackle more consciously some of your patterns of self-undoing. Bringing greater awareness to your dark places, and internal monologues, could help you get to what you want out of life in a more self-directed manner.
