January 2021 - As a new year arrives, the stars continue to shift above us. They pave the way for the great changes that have begun and will continue to occur as we go forward. At the end of 2020, the titans Saturn and Jupiter moved into Aquarius where they will exert their newfound influence. This foretells that there will be a significant focus on communities worldwide and how we’re building connections not only with the villages we’re a part of but with others on a global scale as well.

After spending six months in fiery Aries, our mighty red planet Mars enters new territory in the fields of Taurus beginning January 6. During the coming two months, we will feel a greater need to focus on our stability and security. This will intensify our need to think long term. We feel quite determined now and know that we can achieve anything we set our mind to.

Mercury ventures into Aquarius on the eighth, where it will stay for quite a bit of time. This is because it enters yet another retrograde phase in this zodiac sign. The pre-shadow phase begins as early as January 15, but the official backward spiral starts on the thirtieth. When Mercury is in Aquarius, the mind thirsts for knowledge and new ideas. We bring an innovative approach to communications and projects now. We may also feel eager to connect with communities we believe in and relate to. As the month progresses, prepare for a slower pace to appear.

Venus, our goddess planet, ventures into this same territory on January 8 as well, highlighting a tremendous amount of Aquarian energy now and in the month ahead. With our majestic queen dancing here, we will crave more freedom in relationships. We will demand to express our love as we truly feel it rather than being caged within a box. Friendship becomes especially important now, and we can truly align with platonic soul-mate connections.

A new moon in Capricorn on the twelfth opens up a doorway to you with regard to strategic planning and movement. This zodiac sign rules long-term ambitions. You will feel the need to assess the landscape and determine how you can leap toward your goals. Use the week following this lunation to take direct action and the universe will reward you.

As the month comes to a close, a full moon in Leo rises in the night on January 28. This is an especially vibrant moment when we crave passion, romance, and creativity in all forms. With the sun across the sky in Aquarius at this time, we are being given an opportunity to live vibrantly and authentically. The energy of this luminary will begin to grow a few days prior and last until the beginning of February. Above all, use this period to ready yourself for a mighty year ahead. Consider what inner star power you have and the value you bring to your community.
