Weekly Horoscope: January 4 – 10, 2021
It’s the first full week of 2021, and we’re starting the year with tons of planetary movement! We kick things off on Wednesday when Mars (planet of action) finally leaves Aries after spending six months in the bold fire sign.
However, Mars leavesits ruling sign for the sign of the Bull, which means that for the next six weeks we may feel stuck in slow-moving Taurus. While we mightfeel more determined and ready to play the long game, watch out for feelings of possessivenessand jealousy—especially when it comes to relationships.
On Friday, we hit a double whammy of energy when Mercury (planet of communication) enters Aquarius and Venus (planet of love) enters Capricorn. This creates an interesting but conflicting energy. Communication will be spontaneous and zany, but our partnerships and view of money will be very serious and reserved. However, this is a great time for networking and making connections that will help with ambitions and career goals. Get hustling!
