Pisces January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

The themes of 2020 and 2021 are pulled together in the month ahead as there’s a clear theme of endings and new beginnings.

Capricorn Themes

As January begins, the Sun is in Capricorn, the dominant star sign in 2020. The Sun remains here until the 19th and is joined by the planet of relating, Venus, on the 8th.

Capricorn rules your friends and group activities, it’s linked to your role within society, politics or community issues. It’s about your place in the world and the people you care about the most.

Yet, this month could prove to be a decisive turning point, whether you’re letting go of a group, club or society that’s been important to you. Alternatively, you’re saying goodbye to a dear friend or social group.

This is because Pluto is in Capricorn and active this month. Pluto teams up with talk planet Mercury on the 5th, the Sun on the 14th and Venus on the 28th.

Pluto’s the planet of loss and transformation. When it’s pulled into the planetary activity, things can’t remain the same. One door has to close before a new door can open.

It may become evident what this means to you on or around the New Moon in Capricorn on the 13th. Pluto sits next to the Sun during this New Moon and this could indicate an ultimatum, a letting go or saying goodbye.

Yet, you could also find yourself being called forth during this New Moon to take the lead in a group or step into a position or role of power. Pluto works both ways and is not only about endings or loss.

Aquarius Themes

You are entering into a phase that may connect you more with the spiritual world as Aquarius is the star sign of the moment. Your traditional ruler Jupiter entered Aquarius at the end of December 2020 and is active in the first few months of the year.

Aquarius rules the most hidden sector of your horoscope and turns your attention inward. It can be a time of preparation, when you need to restore your hope and faith. You might be learning to meditate, be on retreat or find yourself listening more to your inner voice.

Aquarius is a social star sign linked to the collective, so this could indicate coming together with other people for a good cause. You might be meditating for peace or become involved in spiritual or philosophical teachings.

Follow wherever your heart leads you on this journey. In particular, notice who or what appears in your life on the 11th and 29th when Jupiter lights up first Mercury, then the Sun.

Jupiter expands what it touches and is the planet of opportunity and growth. These may turn out to be lucky dates, a time when synchronicity or coincidences abound.

Finding Your Voice

Also, you could find your voice this month and become an activist or take the lead in other key areas. This is because of what’s happening in Taurus and your communication and community sector. Action planet Mars moves here on the 6th and on the 20th Mars unites with rebel planet Uranus.

You may find it hard to hold back mid-month. Instead, you want or need to get involved with what’s happening around you, either out in the world or in your local neighbourhood.

You may be fighting for other people or defending the underdog. You might be caring for others or helping those less well-off than yourself. It’s lively planetary activity calling you forth.

The Full Moon on the 28th is part of the same picture, except it’s linked more to gaining or passing on knowledge. This Full Moon lights up the educational axis of your horoscope, whether you’re the one studying or teaching.

Get things moving this month sooner rather than later and fire some arrows high into the sky. Sign up for a course or share your views online.

Come the 30th, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius and you may find it harder to have your say in February.

Sagittarius January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

The key themes of 2020 and 2021 are pulled together in the first month of the year. The things you end and put in place now are pivotal with regard to your future path.

Capricorn Themes

Firstly, the Sun is in Capricorn and your personal money sector until the 19th. Talk planet Mercury is here too until the 8th and both planets do battle with Pluto, the planet of loss and transformation, on the 5th – Mercury and the 14th – the Sun.

This seems to indicate that you need to wipe the slate clean or close a financial deal. Pluto is the planet of power but when it’s involved with personal planets, it can be about issuing an ultimatum or making a decision that’s final.

The New Moon in Capricorn on the 13th also pulls Pluto into the planetary picture. Yes, a New Moon promises new beginnings but they stem or grow out of an ending when Pluto’s involved.

Set your money intentions on or around the New Moon but be aware that there could an added cost to new financial ventures. Try and think of the theme of closing one door in order to open a new door to help guide you.

For example, it might be plugging a financial black hole or stopping an ongoing payment. Alternatively, starting a new money-making venture in an area that’s not entirely of your choosing.

If you have done well financially in 2020 – and some people surely have – then this is a time to consider your next steps regarding money and this might include helping others.

The other planet to move through Capricorn from the 8th onwards is Venus, the planet of relating, linked to caring and kindness.

Aquarius Themes

Your planet Jupiter is now in Aquarius and the focus turns away from personal matters to issues within society and the wider world.

Aquarius is the star sign linked to the collective, it’s about community and all things local. If you’re involved in a new neighbourhood initiative, you’re in tune with your stars.

Talk planet Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th followed by the Sun on the 19th and these themes kick in quickly in 2021.

This is your communication sector, ideal for marketing, promoting yourself, sales and collaboration. Reach out to others, go viral, get online and use modern technology to find your voice.

The luckiest dates are the 11th and 29th when your planet Jupiter teams up first with Mercury and then with the Sun. Look out for new opportunities or good news. This might be with regard to a sibling or neighbour or other people in your local community.

The Full Moon on the 28th highlights the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac. This is the education axis of your horoscope so study and teaching could be foreground this month.

Get involved with other people, reach out and make new connections. Full Moons have a theme of illumination and lighting the way. Start a book, write a blog post, find your voice.

All Change

For some of you, this could be a month when you’re looking to find a way out of regular employment. Alternatively, you’re seeking freelance work or new online employment. These areas of your life could be lively mid-month.

Action planet Mars enters Taurus and your work and lifestyle sector on the 6th but really gets fired up on the 20th when Mars and rebellious Uranus unite. This is the time of the Jupiter-Uranus square aspect linking the star signs Aquarius and Taurus.

The theme is freedom and breaking away from close ties. Jupiter and Uranus are entrepreneurial planets, they embody risk-taking, vision, hope and faith.

You do need to be flexible, however, because change could come unexpectedly. Yet, you’re wise to embrace all things new this month as there’s no going back to the old ways.

Plus, it’s important that you work on new ideas and plans sooner rather than later. This is because on the 30th, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde and February will be more of an ‘inner’ than an ‘outer’ month. Get things moving fast in January.

Scorpio January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

Your ruling planet Mars finally leaves Aries on the 6th after six long months in this sector of your horoscope. Aries rules work and health, your lifestyle and routine and you may have been fighting hard in these areas. It’s time to take a breather or find a different way to go about things.

Capricorn Themes

Venus, the planet of relating, is in Capricorn from the 8th onwards and this could be a positive sign for you. Venus is about compromise and negotiation and smoothing over any troubled waters.

If you’ve been involved in an ongoing conflict or argument for some time now, Venus is urging you to hold out the olive branch of peace.

At least, that’s one alternative. You could just as easily decide to close the door on a problem or issue that’s not going away and you realise this month that the best solution is to take a step back. This could be linked to an issue with a sister or neighbour or be about an argument that’s not dying down.

Pluto is a key planet this month, your co-ruler, also in Capricorn. When Pluto’s active, events are final and ultimatums are given. Pluto is strong on the 5th, 14th and 28th. Also, during the New Moon in Capricorn on the 13th.

Pluto represents power as well as loss and you could find yourself taking on an influential role or getting your voice heard. Capricorn is your communication sector and Pluto’s theme is regeneration and transformation.

Relationships & Breaking Free

Your traditional ruler Mars also moves into one of the people sectors of your horoscope as it enters Taurus on the 8th.

Taurus is your opposite star sign and rules your relationships. People are important now, whether you’re seeking a role model, you meet an influential teacher or you’re getting on the right side of the people who count.

Alternatively, you could be the one influencing or teaching others. Either way, work your relationships but, at the same time, don’t let other people get away with bad behaviour.

Mars is in feisty mood this month which could still make for some tempestuous or argumentative battles – new ones perhaps. You might be fighting for other people’s rights, defending the underdog or taking on your own personal battle.

Mars brings passion and excitement your way too and a relationship could start unexpectedly and suddenly. Notice what occurs on or around the 20th when Mars unites with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus.

There is a theme of freedom too, especially when Jupiter is pulled into the mix. Mars squares up to Jupiter on the 23rd and there’s a Jupiter-Uranus square aspect on the 17th. Who or what are you breaking free from is a good question to ask.

Aquarius Themes

Jupiter is currently in Aquarius, the star sign of the moment, linked to your home and family, your past and where you come from. Talk planet Mercury moves here on the 8th followed by the Sun on the 19th. Jupiter’s bringing opportunity, expansion and growth to these key areas of your life.

Note in particular the 11th and 29th when Jupiter unites with first Mercury and then the Sun. These are potentially lucky dates, whether you’re emigrating, reuniting with family or you find your dream home. Have hope and faith that things will work out.

The Full Moon on the 28th is a stand-out date to make a clear decision about your foundations and your future path. This is about the home-work balance and setting new structures in place, making new plans that you can build on moving forward.

The more you put into these key areas of your life the better as Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th, the last day of the month. It’s a month to be bold and brave-hearted and to fight hard for the things and people you love.

Libra January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

Capricorn Themes

Your ruling planet Venus moves into Capricorn on the 8th and your home and family sector, where it remains throughout January. Capricorn was the dominant star sign in 2020 and some of you may have experienced endings or loss in your life.

There could have been a family rift or lockdown challenges. You might have lost your home or said goodbye to a beloved family member. Venus’ role this month is to smooth things over, to heal and hold, to bring solace and love.

If you need to start over in some way in these key areas of your life, this is a good month to do so. It might mean closing the door on your past and some moves will be final.

However, use the New Moon in Capricorn on the 13th to begin again in some way. And, use the Venus-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on the 28th to say goodbye.

Aquarius Themes

This is a year to embrace all that’s good in your life and it might start with adopting a positive attitude. You have the stars on your side in 2021 as Aquarius is the key star sign, a fellow air sign.

Plus, Aquarius rules all the good things in life like romance, children & pregnancy, creativity, entertainment, self-expression and fun.

Planets in Aquarius urge you to do more of what you love and prioritise play over work. Talk planet Mercury moves here on the 8th and the Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th.

Plus, there’s a glorious celebratory Full Moon in playful Leo on the 28th. This pulls in lucky Jupiter, so do something special on or around this date.

Jupiter often brings new opportunity your way, as it’s the planet linked to expansion and growth. Jupiter’s positive vibes are strong on the 11th and 29th when Jupiter unites first with Mercury, then with the Sun. This could coincide with good news or herald the start of a new romance.

Money & Freedom

Money matters do require close attention and things are hotting up in this sector of your horoscope. Action planet Mars moves into Taurus and your joint finance sector on the 6th and unites with Uranus, the planet of change & the unexpected, on the 20th.

When it comes to finances, it’s important to stay up-to-date with modern trends. Don’t take money for granted and push hard to get what you deserve and fight for your financial rights. Mars and Uranus’ energy is rebellious and strongly active.

It’s important that you find the right people to team up with, perhaps someone who backs your plans or ideas. Earth sign energy is productive now and the lovers of the heavens Venus and Mars unite in Capricorn and Taurus on the 9th. For you, this is about partnership and getting the right people on your side.

Also mid-month, there’s a freedom-loving Jupiter-Uranus square aspect linking the star signs Aquarius and Taurus. This might be about breaking free from financial ties or pursuing an entrepreneurial dream. Jupiter is the planet most closely linked to hope and faith and it’s an ideal month to line up some new dreams and goals.

Do so quickly, however, because on the 30th, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde and this can indicate that plans are stalled. Make some bold moves this month and use the Mercury retrograde phase in February to research and plan.

Leo January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

January 2021, Leo

Capricorn Themes

It may be a new year but there’s a sense of wrapping things up before you can start over. As January begins, your ruler the Sun is in Capricorn, which dominated last year’s astrology – 2020.

The Sun is here until the 19th and on the 13th, there’s a New Moon in Capricorn. Traditionally, a New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings but this New Moon sits next to Pluto, the planet of loss and transformation.

Capricorn rules your work and health, your lifestyle and routine, it’s about the basics of life, how you serve others and your own well-being. You may be making some tough decisions this month because of what happened in 2020.

For many of you, it feels as if this is a time when you’ll be keen to embrace freedom and all things new, whatever that means for you personally.

This could include work online, a freelance role, alternative health remedies or a new attitude to keeping fit. Don’t overdo things but do heed any warnings and be resolute in your decisions.

Career Moves

Also, close to the New Moon, there’s a lot happening in Taurus and your career and vocation sector. The planet of change, Uranus, has been here since 2018 and turns direct this month on the 14th.

Plus, there’s a Jupiter-Uranus square aspect on the 17th, a symbol of freedom or entrepreneurial ventures.

Action planet Mars moves into Taurus and this same sector of your horoscope on the 6th. Mars is firing up your career and future sector for the first couple of months of 2020.

When Mars and Uranus unite on the 20th, you may be a rebel with a cause. This combination is impulsive and revolutionary. Don’t take undue risks but do be bold & brave.

Aquarius Themes

People also matter now, a great deal. Throughout 2021, there’s strong emphasis on the star sign Aquarius and your relationship sector. This is about your intimate 1-to-1’s, your business partnerships and joint ventures. In fact, all significant others in your life.

The emphasis is hotting up here in January as talk planet Mercury moves into Aquarius on the 8th followed by your ruler the Sun on the 19th. Plus, lucky Jupiter is in action on the 11th and the 29th.

Look out for people who can help you or support you now. Be expansive in your dealings with others and think big. Be around people who open up your life in a good way.

The Full Moon on the 28th is likely to be key with regard to a contract or partnership in your life. It falls in your star sign Leo opposite the Moon in Aquarius and lucky Jupiter is pulled into this Full Moon pattern.

You may recognise the strength of your own emotions during this Full Moon, especially if you’re unable to be with someone you love.

For some of you, this Full Moon could coincide with a proposal or meeting someone new. Yet, on the 30th, Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius and will be on go slow for most of February. This looks like being apart from someone. Or, perhaps you’re having to playing a waiting game.

Either way, it’s best to get a contract signed or sealed beforehand. And/or make a clear decision about a relationship on the light of the Full Moon.

If you’re in a relationship or married, it could be events in your partner’s life that are the reason why you need to reorient your compass on your future path.

The period from the 24th to the 29th will be illuminating and help you recognise why freedom is such a key issue for you moving forward.

Virgo January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

Capricorn Themes

As January begins, your ruling planet Mercury remains in Capricorn, although only for the first week. Capricorn is a fellow earth sign and linked to a feel-good sector of your horoscope. This includes romance, children & pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and fun.

However, you may not be feeling so full of positive vibes yourself, if you’re unable to do what you love and see some of the people in your life who make you happy. Pluto is a key player in Capricorn, the planet of loss and transformation, and Pluto is active on the 5th, 14th and 28th.

The New Moon on the 13th is relevant here with its theme of new beginnings. Yet, with Pluto pulled into the mix, any new beginnings may grow out of an ending. You might have to close the door on something or someone, before you can start over.

What Pluto is good for is laser focus and resolute action. Some of you could find that January is the month you become obsessed about a hobby, romance or pregnancy, for example. Whatever you commit to this month, you’re likely to go all in.

And, with love planet Venus in Capricorn from the 8th onwards, some of you will be in the throes of a romance or an obsession. One way or another, emotions will run deep.

Aquarius Themes

Yet, this month also sees the rise of the star sign Aquarius which rules your work and health sector. Jupiter and Saturn led the way into Aquarius at the end of 2020 and, on the 8th, your planet Mercury moves into this same part of your horoscope.

This is where the action’s at and it’s an ideal month for new resolutions or intentions in both these key areas – work and health.

Aquarius is about the things you do on a daily basis and being practical and getting organised. It’s the star sign linked to technology and all things modern so you could be creating new systems to help yourself or other people.

If you’re a typical Sun Virgo, you like to take good care of your body and you prioritise your health, fitness and well-being. Some of you may decide to work in these areas moving forward.

Lucky Jupiter is in action this month too on the 11th and 29th, when it teams up with Mercury and then the Sun. These are the dates that could bring new opportunities your way. Jupiter favours risk-taking and expansion. If you want or need to apply for a new job, position or role, use Jupiter’s luck.

The Full Moon on the 28th highlights the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac and this is about being of service, whether to other people or a higher purpose. The Full Moon lights the way and helps you see clearly where fulfilment lies.

Ensure you run with any new ideas sooner rather than later, because on the 30th, your planet Mercury turns retrograde and will be on go slow for most of February.

Freedom Vibes

There is a theme of freedom this month, especially around the 14th to the 20th. Uranus is a key player in Taurus and your travel and study sector.

Plans may change suddenly on or around the 14th when Uranus turns direct and on the 17th when there’s a Jupiter-Uranus square aspect. This is about embracing freedom and all things new. You might be finding a new routine or seeking a way to travel or study, even if it is remotely.

Although, with action planet Mars entering Taurus on the 6th where it remains throughout January & February, you are unlikely to let restrictions stop you expanding your horizons.

The Mars-Uranus conjunction on the 20th feels impulsive, rebellious, fool-hardy even. Don’t take unnecessary physical risks but do venture forward boldly. Things rarely change without a strong sense of adventure and a willingness to push back the boundaries.

Aries Horoscope January 2021

Happy New Year! Hooray – 2020 is over and we’re moving into a brand new year.

January 2021, Aries

It feels like a completely fresh start for you as your ruling planet Mars finally leaves your star sign Aries where it’s been for the last six months. Now is the ideal time to put 2020 to bed and start over.

Endings & Beginnings

Yet, new beginnings can only unfold from something coming to an end. This is the theme of the New Moon in Capricorn on the 13th. Capricorn is your career and vocation sector and the two leaders of the zodiac, Jupiter & Saturn, have now left behind this area of your horoscope.

Plus, the New Moon falls next to Pluto, the planet of loss, power & transformation, the only slower-moving planet left at the peak of your horoscope. You may step into a position of power on this New Moon. Alternatively, a job, role or position may come to an end.

Whatever happens under Pluto’s gaze tends to be final. Yet, it still remains a significant New Moon to set your intentions and focus on your future path. Where are you heading and why? Keep hold of a sense of purpose or find one if it’s lacking.

Money Matters

On the 6th, Mars moves into Taurus and your personal money sector where it remains for the next couple of months. Things are lively in this sector of your horoscope as the planet of change, Uranus, is also here. In fact, on the 20th, Mars and Uranus unite in Taurus and your money sector.

Taurus not only rules money, also what you value and your sense of self-worth. Here, there’s a sense of the new, whether this means updating your financial situation, learning about new money methods or adopting a new attitude to money & earnings.

The Mars-Uranus combination can be explosive and it’s not the best time to be overly impulsive. Yet, freedom beckons in some shape or form. This is also the theme of the Jupiter-Uranus square aspect on the 17th and Uranus turning direct in Taurus on the 14th.

This whole period of the month brings fizz and excitement to your money sector. It’s not a time for holding on tight, instead reinvent your finances and take your next steps.

Aquarius Themes

Aquarius is the star sign of the year and talk planet Mercury enters Aquarius on the 8th. Mercury will be followed by the Sun’s move into Aquarius on the 19th. Very quickly in 2021, you’re going to know what this new trend means for you.

Aquarius rules your friends and group sector, your place within society, your role within politics or social responsibilities. Plus, lucky Jupiter is in action on the 11th and 29th. These are dates to act fast, take a risk, be a visionary. Jupiter’s aim is to restore hope and faith to life, to help you seek the light after the darkness.

You may be celebrating with friends, especially during the Full Moon on the 28th. Or, perhaps you decide to set up an online group and reach out and make new connections.

Aquarius is the star sign linked to technology and all things modern. Embrace the future and be around other people who inspire you and help you moving forward. It’s wise to get things moving quickly in 2021 as Mercury will turn retrograde in Aquarius on the 30th, the last day of the month.

There will be times this month when you may stand up to others or take on an activist or rebel role. The period from the 13th to the 23rd is most relevant in this respect.

Your star sign is renowned for being direct, honest and forthright, for taking action and making things happen. Consider where and why you want to focus and channel your time and energy as 2021 begins.
