Monthly HoroscopeJanuary 2021
The Sun will shine in Capricorn through the 18th, forming a challenging square to your Sun. If you’re an Aries rising, you’ll also feel a bit of pressure to take a step towards an important goal. You’ll have cosmic support to move ahead this month, but use your time and energy wisely. You’ll be most successful when you consider the long-term effects of your current decisions and actions. On the 19th, the Sun will move into Aquarius, shifting the focus to your friends and community connection.
Mars, your ruling planet, will finish its 6-month-long journey through your Sun sign on January 6, clearing the shadow of its last retrograde cycle. After this date, you’ll probably feel more confident committing to a plan and will have more patience to take a thorough approach. Mars will be in Taurus from January 6 to March 3, encouraging you to channel your energy towards money making activities and building skills that boost your confidence.
Venus will move into Capricorn on the 8th and will remain in this sign through January 30. This will be helpful for Aries or Aries rising people who are looking for work and/or wish to improve their employment situation. Your leadership skills will be highlighted, and it will be a great month to combine your talents with people skills to make important connections.
This month’s New Moon will be on the 13th, at 23 degrees Capricorn. Aries Sun people born on or around April 13, of any year, will get an extra push for new endeavors that involve taking on challenges. Those with Aries rising on or around 23 degrees will also get cosmic support for an ambitious goal. All Aries can use this New Moon to set intentions related to career, public image, financial security, and long-term commitments.
We’ll enter the shadow of Mercury retrograde on January 16—try to initiate new actions before this date. The official Mercury retrograde dates will be January 30 - February 20. This Mercury retrograde cycle will be particularly useful to reconnect with old friends and deal with existing technology. For example, it won’t be a great time to implement new computer software, but it will be excellent timing to do some maintenance on your computer and back up your files.
This month’s Full Moon on the 28th will be at 9 degrees Leo, forming a favorable trine to your Sun. If you were born on or around March 30, of any year, or have Aries rising on or around 9 degrees, you’ll feel especially energized at this Full Moon. Make time for creative play and activities that bring you joy. You could have a realization about a romantic partnership around this time. Listen for messages from your heart.
