We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.
Happy New Year! January is the month of the ancient Roman god Janus, who rules doorways, and looks forwards and backwards at the same time. He symbolizes transitions, and the portal between the past and the future.
This god is appropriate for all of 2021, as we begin the tussles between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. These squares between these two planets will manifest on Earth as the push and pull between old world ideologies, and the advancements of the technological age.
It’s very close to being mutual reception, which is when two planets are in each others’ ruling signs. Saturn (responsibility and discipline) has a lot in common with Taurus (practicality and slow growth). Uranus (revolution) is the ruler of Aquarius (liberation, revelation). This year, we will be wanting to push forward past old ideas to a new paradigm, but the progress will be slow. Patience is the key.
Last year, in 2020, our world and personal lives were torn to pieces. Pluto, the god of literal and metaphoric death, presided over last year. In 2021, we will begin to lay the foundation for a new way forward, but the key is deciding on personal direction. Neptune in Pisces is also squaring the North Node of the Moon in Gemini all year, asking us to access intuition for finding this new path. You can’t think your way into it, you have to use your gut instincts. This is very important this year.
Monday, January 4th: Moon VOC in Virgo starting in the afternoon. Try and avoid spending all of your $600 bonus today. It is EXCELLENT to start a new year diet and exercise routine though! The big news is Mercury conjunct Pluto around 5pm Pacific. Avoid power plays and doom scrolling on social media. Issues of control might come up in communication, but there’s possibilies for deep understanding and clearing of the air. Don’t go to extremes in your thinking this week; healing is available.
Tuesday, January 5th: Moon in Libra brings a need for balance, fairness and justice. If an issue in your life feels out of your control or unjust, gently take action today. Libra wants you to use tact, and maneuver towards win-win situations. Talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow.
Wednesday, January 6th: Moon in Libra enters the 4th quarter, and we are in a balsamic Moon until next Wednesday. You have permission to rest and watch movies. Mars enters Taurus at 2:27pm Pacific, which means the massive restructure of our identities from Mars in Aries last year has completed it’s first phase. Unfortunately, this could bring battles over territories.
Thursday, January 7th: Moon in Scorpio. The mood of the day could be frustrating, because the Moon will be squaring most of the outer planets, then opposing Uranus at 12:16pm Pacific. Don’t push people to meet your needs, instead nurture yourself. Stay in your own front yard.
Friday, January 8th: Moon in Scorpio, void at 6pm Pacific. Lots of aspects and changes today so go with the flow. Mercury goes into Aquarius and our minds become electrified by possibilities, ideas and expanding consciousness. Venus sullenly enters Capricorn and romance dies. We’re all about committment now, and long-lasting partnerships. Are the fundamentals there for this to really work in the long term? Expect this question to come up a lot in the next few weeks.
Saturday, January 9th: Moon in Sagittarius. Have outside adventures and put energy towards your goals! Venus trines Mars, allowing achievable resolutions between partners. You can get some foundational stuff decided in relationships today. Get it done by early evening though, because Mercury conjunct the hard eye of Saturn in the evening could bring stubborness and pessimism.
Sunday, January 10th: Moon in Sagittarius, then at 10:30am void ALL DAY!! Be creative, rest and have fun. No big aspects and no ground under our feet today, so no big decisions or conversations.
