Astrology Transits January 2021 – New Horizons

“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.” Rainer Maria Rilke

January promises to be the story of two completely different energy patterns.  There is plenty of challenging, even disruptive energy, left to keep us on our toes. But, at the same time, we have a growing sense of optimism, newness, creativity and the desire to bring about change in an innovative, unexpected way.  It is time to brush off those old so-called “failures” and rework them. The authoritarian, restrictive Saturnian energy is air brushed with new ideas and new ways of doing things.  Previously unattainable goals can now be achieved using the forward-thinking Aquarian energy.
December 29:  Full Moon at 9 Degrees Cancer/Capricorn. The Moon loves being in its home sign of Cancer where it is very strong.  The emphasis will be on home versus work (or public endeavors).  Lots of energy needs to devoted to balancing those two areas of your life.  This Cancer Full Moon is especially on point given that many of us are working and/or providing school at home.  This is an extraordinarily emotional Full Moon so let yourself feel and express your emotions as needed.  Expect healing insights around old family wounds.

December 29-30:  Venus Square Neptune at 17-18 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces.  Venus Square Neptune in mutable signs brings a calming sense of being able to combine your desires (Venus) with your daydreams (Neptune).  It is a welcome break from the clashing energy that we have felt off and on all year.  Though squares are challenging, they also give us the oomph to change what needs to be changed.  This aspect is especially beneficial for those who work in a creative, spiritual or helping occupation.

December 31:  New Year’s Eve Astrology.  The Moon begins the day in Cancer, but moves into Leo later in the day, where it opposes first Saturn, and then Jupiter.  This sets up conflict on whether to have a quiet time at home (Cancer) or to “paint the town red “(Leo).  In view of Covid, hopefully you will opt for a cozy night at home with those near and dear to you.

January 1:  Mercury Sextile Neptune at 18 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces. New Year’s Day is a great time to make realistic plans to bring your daydreams into reality.  Mercury in Capricorn brings realistic ideas. Neptune in Pisces lets you apply that realism to your daydreams.

January 4-5: Mercury Conjunct Pluto at 23-25 Degrees Capricorn. Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn provides you with grounded ideas and the ability to make practical plans.  Unfortunately, it can also foster obsessive, overly focused thoughts and plans.

January 6:  Mars enters Taurus (until March 4).  We have gone through a very long time when anger was out in the open and instantaneous.  Mars in Taurus brings more of a stubborn vibe to your anger.  Mars in Taurus energizes all financial matters.  As Mars moves to conjunct Uranus near January 19, watch for wild fluctuations in the financial markets.

January 8:  
Mercury enters Aquarius
Venus enters Capricorn
Mercury square Mars at Zero Degrees Aquarius/Taurus)
Venus trine Mars at Zero Degrees Capricorn/Taurus
Sun sextile Neptune at 18 Degrees Capricorn/PiscesThere’s a little bit of conflicting energy in this time period.  Mercury square Mars can literally be interpreted as “angry words” or “anger regarding words.”  Because it is in the fixed signs of Aquarius and Taurus, there is also quite a bit of stubbornness. At the same time, Venus trine Mars and Sun sextile Neptune brings an abundance of creative, compassionate and romantic energy.  This planetary configuration might be summed up in the old cliché “make love, not war.”

January 9-11: Mercury Conjunct Saturn and Mercury Conjunct Jupiter at 2-5 Degrees Aquarius). Mercury conjunct Saturn and then Mercury conjunct Jupiter are tailor made for studying and planning, and for discussions with others, both socially and professionally.

January 13:  Mars Square Saturn at 3 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius. The key word for this period is “frustration.”  Mars wants action and wants it now, while Saturn says “not so fast.  Because both planets are in fixed signs, the desire to compromise is practically non-existent. It’s very easy to become entrenched in your way of thinking. This is especially true, if you have personal planets in early degrees of the fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio).

January 14:  Uranus Stations Direct at 6 Degrees Taurus.  Uranus, the freedom planet, turned retrograde on August 15, 2020.  Many of your plans for change were put on hold at that time.  Now, with Uranus moving forward, your desire for change will take center stage. Uranus moving direct brings brilliant, and sometimes “out there” ideas and events.  Look for shocking money events, revolutionary actions and even earth-shaking events (including earthquakes and volcanoes) from now until the end of the month. See January 17-23 below.

January 13-15: New Moon and Sun Conjunct Pluto at 23-24 Degrees Capricorn; Mars Square Saturn at 3-6 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius.  The Capricorn New Moon conjunct Pluto starts a new lunar phase related to power, control and authority.  The overriding planetary energy during January will be based on authority and control.  How much control are you willing to accept?  Where are you not in control in your own life? How can you take control of a situation that has gotten away from you?  Use this powerful Capricorn New Moon to take charge of your own life, particularly, in work and professional matters.

January 17-23

January 17:  Jupiter Square Uranus at 7 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. January 20:  Mars Conjunct Uranus at 6 Degrees Taurus.

January 23:  Mars Square Jupiter at 8 Degrees Taurus/Aquarius. The time span from the middle until the end of January is fraught with sudden, unexpected, potentially dangerous energy.  Expect the unexpected, drive carefully and do not put yourself in unhealthy situations.

Amidst this challenging energy, the Sun trine Chiron brings a sense of healing and new insights on how to heal your body, soul and spirit. Pay attention to any sudden insights you get at this time regarding healing and health; especially if the old ways are no longer working.

January 28th: Full Moon at 9 Degrees Leo Opposes the Sun Conjunct Jupiter at 9 Degrees Aquarius; Square Mars and Uranus in Taurus.  I love that we are ending the month on a fun, optimistic and dynamic energy pattern.  Make a wish under this Leo Full Moon and you just might get it. The Leo Full Moon adds just the emotional overtone to help you manifest your desires. Jupiter expands everything it touches, so do be careful what you wish for.  The Aquarius Sun asks you to consider even those things that once seemed weird or unobtainable and Mars brings a burst of energy.  Because of the squares to Mars, you do need to be aware during this Full Moon.  Rash actions can lead to unfortunate results.

January 30:  Mercury Stations Retrograde at 28 Degrees Aquarius. Mercury turns retrograde on the 30th and moves back to 11 degrees Aquarius before turning direct on February 20.  Mercury retrograde gives us a chance to perfect and fine tune the new, progressive ideas and intentions started under the New Moon and brought to fruition under the Full Moon.

    Hello, my name is Geany, I would like to know what this year will be like for me from a career and financial point of view? I started a new job in October, in another niche, in sales … Previously I was a bartender for 22 years. I don’t know if I will succeed in this niche, if I will manage to make clients, to earn from the commission! I am born in Bucharest Romania, 22:15 PM ..Thank you very much!

      Hello Geamy, This will be a very creative year for you because Jupiter and Saturn will be moving into your Aquarian 5th house of creativity and fun. That would indicate that it would be good to tune into unusual ideas and your own brilliant thoughts to generate more income. For the last several years, you have been under a Pluto/Saturn influence that has tended to hold you back. That influence is moving out and you should find it much easier to move forward. Home matters, in particular, should ease. The planet Neptune is transiting your 6th house of work. Because of that, I would caution you to be careful to clarify the terms of all contracts and work conditions. Neptune in the 6th house can tend to fog issues and you may make excuses for things that are going on that should, instead, be confronted. Neptune there can also lower your self-confidence. With cardinal signs on your angles (Ascendant, IC, descendant and MC), never doubt your ability. You are a powerhouse once you get going. Good luck.
