Happy New Year! I do hope this article finds you all well, at peace, healthy, and hopeful for the new year ahead. 2021 is going to be a year filled with fast pace changes, liberation, innovation, compensation, and transmutation. 2020 ushered us into our future, and 2021 is going to show and lead the way into this future. There is no going back now, we are exactly where we are meant to be. It does not matter if you just started your awakening (remembrance) or if this your umpteenth time. At this very moment you are exactly where you should be.
2021 adds up to 5 in Numerology. This vibrational frequency signifies constant change, movement, freedom of the mundane, new ideas, creativity, unpredictability, and individualism. Collectively speaking things will continue to change in ways we could have never imagined. Some will flow with the changes, some will crumble with them, some will resist, and others might remain frozen in time. If this is the year where you start trusting and believing in the Universe and seeking the help of the Universe, you will be pleasantly surprised throughout this year. Be open to receiving and remain grounded for these changes will be fast moving.
Let us dive into January’s astrological movements. On the 4th, Jupiter semi-squares Neptune plunging us into an energetic alignment which will help so many in actualizing a big dream or idea into the material. This boost of energy will revitalize us while sharpening not only our mind, but also our sight, in order to see the big picture which is undergoing. Don’t hold your breath, but instead breathe deeply and exhale for today is a fortunate day. Pay attention to all those possibilities… for they are pointing the way.
On the 6th, Mars enters Taurus slowing down the pace of change. We must practice open mindedness and not get stuck on just one possibility. Instead, we must view all possible roads and construct an action plan that paces us into a steady pace. In the time frame this action moving planet is visiting Taurus, the sign of comfort. We must do something that brings us out of our comfort of doing things the old way. Now is a time to do something out of the box, which will bulldoze us through the brick walls we seemingly put into place a long time ago. It’s also time to put a lot of things to rest and do your best not to eat out of boredom. If you feel a need to do a lot of grounding, go outside for walks and hikes.
January 8th, Mercury makes itself at home in Aquarius… since it will be here for a bit of time. These next coming of weeks will have us all communicating with ease. Unexpected conversations will be the norm, getting to the bottom of the matter will be of the utmost importance, while confidently letting others know what exactly is needed to not only talk about change but to actually be the change and take those proactive steps in the right direction of said change. Communicating in the most unusual ways will help to deliver your words and to be well received. Do keep in mind. just because you think you know something does not necessarily mean it is. Ask the questions you would have never asked in order to receive the answers you have never received before. Let go of expectations and what you think the answer is, and remain open minded and receptive.
On this same day, we have Venus entering Capricorn. The planet of beauty and love will help us in our efforts to demonstrate the seriousness we have in establishing long lasting relationships. No more target practice or philosophizing our feelings. Now is the time to proceed forward in absolute confidence in the leadership role we are being urged to step into. Be your most authentic self and do not worry about the outside world. Remain focused and unwavering because long lasting things take time, effort, and a little thing called magic in order for it to come to be. Aggression will not do, however; assertiveness will.
The energy of the 9th will be an interesting one, anything goes and it will anywhere. Jupiter sesquiquadrate True Node handing us a solution to an ongoing situation which will now begin to resolve in the most unexpected of ways. New ideas will actualize in the here and now. Word to the wise, be in the here and now, for it’s here where you realize how beneficial this solution truly is. However, as instantly as it appeared, it will not take away from the effort we must maintain. In order to have our long term dream be a reality we must adhere to the present moment.
On the 11th, Jupiter sextile Chiron helping us in healing a part of ourselves that has made us feel imprisoned. The liberation of this day will catapult us into the depths of our soul. A new understanding for your hardships in being you will feel like a long awaited breath that was waiting to be released. The illumination of this day will bring a fresh new perspective in achieving a long awaited dream. You will understand why it took the time that it did; otherwise, it would have remained in the past unhealed.
January 13th is the first new moon of the year and it is in Capricorn. During this moon it is important to remember we are in a new beginning. We want to set tangible goals that are interchangeable with the changing times we are in. Much progress has been made, but not enough to keep up with the momentum. You do not want to increase the speed of things. However, you must remain focused on what you are striving to achieve. Working with burgundy, gold, and purple candles with help give life and illumination to the road you are on. Let go of control, trust in the process, and be confident in the magic of the moon.
Uranus moves into direct motion on the 14th while still being in Taurus. These past several months, while the planet of radical changes has been retrograde, the world has plummeted into a new way of being. Long gone are the days of doing things like we were accustomed to doing. We now live in a world where we are uncomfortable going outside of our home. Everyone’s personal worlds have also undergone tremendous change. Now, with the planet moving forward once again, everyone should be well adjusted when another sudden change happens once again. At this point discomfort is the new norm and comfort is now the new uncomfortable.
On the 17th, Jupiter squares Uranus causing friction in achieving a long awaited goal. Here the God of Fortune and Expansion is demanding we take action with the opportunity being presented. Even if things seem complicated take comfort in the fact that change starts out complicated but somehow gets easier in time. Only because there’s a comfort in knowing things are changing and with change comes growth. Growth in helping us to do something new and not remain in the old ways of doing things… the hard way… in order to feel accomplished.
Vesta retrogrades in Virgo on the 19th giving us plenty of time to not only get our homes in order but to also those who reside within our homes. Organization, cleanliness, caring for, and ensuring that our sanctuary is at its utmost best is essential. When our home feels like our own it helps to make us feel at home within ourselves. Wanting to share our home with another will be precedence in really feeling at home. Showing care at this time brings in the energy one was only dreaming about. However, do your best to not overthink or worry on how things are getting done. Just relish in the energy instead.
Saturn semi-squares Neptune on the 20th. Here we run the risk of complicating an already hard to achieve dream by reaching too high for a solution. This dream is achievable, but only if one accepts one’s role in it. Participation is a must, being adaptable is key, and planting one’s feet into the reality of the dream will help it along in unfurling it. Being present in the here and now helps to gain clarity and insight on how to proceed forward.
The 21st Saturn sesquiquadrate True Node reminding us of what it means to view the world as a child while being an adult. Innocence seems like a lost trait in the majority of people. Even having a sense of humor brings a disturbance to some. Yet this day’s energy is reminding us to have fun even the most serious of us knows how to laugh. So, why not laugh today? Why, not do something fun today and remember what it was like to be a child with no worries in the world. Laughter is the cure to so many things.
On the 26th, Neptune squares True Node causing waves in an already wavy road. Today, it feels like everyone is going around circles and like everyone is in their own worlds. No one is paying attention to one another, ensuing misunderstandings, and even outbursts of jealousy. The distractions of the day have nothing to do with the outside world, but it does have everything to do with what you think should be happening. Pay attention today and listen to understand in order for your response not to be a selfish one.
The 27th Pluto bi-quintiles True Node handing us the energy of rebirth. Today, something comes to an end and a new beginning is welcomed. This new beginning is a part of the big picture. It feels like a big handout from the Universe and in reality it is. It’s a reward for the work being done in achieving your desired end goal. Synchronicity is the voice of the Universe today while your higher-self is your guiding light.
Our first full moon of the year is on the 28th in Leo. Surprises is the theme of this moon, so do expect to be surprised. Whether you like surprises or not, what matters is the surprise itself. It feels like the surprise was already known to be happening or was going to happen… but there’s a sense of forbearance. Make sure to remain patient. This will help with the surprising energy we are in. Orange, red, and yellow candles will encourage support for what the moon is giving us.
Lastly, the first Mercury retrograde starts on the 30th in Aquarius. An innate need to reinvent ourselves will dictate the next coming of weeks. Finding new ways to express yourself, your desires, your wants, and your needs will be redefined. What you thought you wanted to happen will now change when a new way of doing things will appear. Is this new way a good way? Perhaps. Taking the time to figure out if it is a good way to proceed will open up to a new way of implementing motion. There’s no need to get all caught up in the visual, but there is a need to be in the here and now. In this way, things actualize in the most favorable of ways.
This is 2021, the year of change, so be a part of it. You are a lot stronger than you realize and just remember 2020 prepared you for this new year 🙂
