Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.
Before you charge head long into 2021, there’s some wrapping up to do. This is because your planet Venus enters Capricorn on the 8th where it remains until the end of the month.
Capricorn is a fellow earth sign and rules travel and study in your horoscope, the bigger picture. Venus moving here is encouraging you to hold on to your dreams, to envision the future you want for yourself, to keep hold of hope and faith.
Yet, some plans will have come to an end first. This may be on or around the New Moon on the 13th which also falls in Capricorn. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings but this New Moon falls next to Pluto, the planet of loss & transformation.
Things come to an end under Pluto’s gaze and doors close. Consider which plans to let go of as you move forward – there may be clues along the way on the 5th and 28th.
Yet, this really is a ‘new’ year for you and a time to embrace change and look to the future. Talk planet Mercury enters Aquarius, the star sign of the moment, on the 8th and is followed by the Sun’s move into Aquarius on the 19th.
Aquarius rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation. It’s the star sign at the peak of your horoscope linked to your future path, your next steps. Aquarius rules technology and all things modern and this is an ideal month to consider how you can embrace future trends.
You could move a business online, set up a website or commit to a course of online study. You might be out and about within society, helping others and being committed to your beliefs, your values and your desire to bring about change.
For some of you, this will be evident already as you have Uranus, the planet of change and reinvention, currently in your star sign Taurus. In fact, Uranus has been here since 2018.
Plus, this month, on the 6th, action planet Mars joins Uranus in your star sign. Mars will be powering up your personal sector for the next couple of months.
This is turbo-powered activist planetary energy. Even though you are a fixed earth sign and renowned for being stubborn, this isn’t a month to stay put or refuse change.
You’ll notice this most for you personally on the 14th when Uranus turns direct, on the 17th when there’s a freedom-loving Jupiter-Uranus square aspect and on the 20th when Mars and Uranus unite.
The latter date is impulsive and not great for physical risk-taking. Yet, you are going to feel fired up this month and ready for action.
For some of you, this is about a new chapter in your personal life with more freedom and time for you. For others, it’s about engaging with society and helping to bring about change in a positive way.
Jupiter is wafting its magic wand on the 11th and 29th. Notice what new opportunities come your way. And, the Full Moon on the 28th is a stand-out date for making a clear decision about your next steps.
Relationships could play their part as both Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens move into earth signs early in the month and unite on the 9th. Together you’re stronger and this applies to all your connections.
At times, you’ll fall out with others, perhaps because you feel so strongly about what’s important. Yet, you may be the one leading the way and taking a controversial or future-oriented leading role.
Note that Mercury turns retrograde on the 30th, the last day of January. Therefore, it’s not a month to ease slowly into 2021. What you put in place early this year could set you up in a good way for the rest of the year.
