Welcome to 2021! We are embarking on a fresh new year… one that will keep us spirited, on our toes, and continue to support the depth of work we began in 2020 (the journey of this decade is one for heroes and heroines)! If 2021 were a mixed tape, it might sound quite eclectic, uplifting even, with some poignant Beethoven woven in to ignite the three powerful notes of the Saturn/Uranus Square Cycle in February, June, and December. Here’s to the power of cosmic forces inviting us to forge ahead with an instilled vision of the future to be revealed from the heart of our hearts. Please read for your Sun and Rising Sign… Enjoy!

 

Aries

Mantra: I am becoming my vision.

Happy New Year to the Aries warrior clan! Your presence in the zodiacal universe represents the beginning of Spring, thus you are a cardinal sign gracing us with eternal rebirth and possibility. May you remember this throughout 2021 and as you set your intention for the highly transformative and power-packed new moon on January 12th. This year begins with encouragement for bringing your vision into materialization. Inner dialogue themes may circulate around your relationship to your work and how you are shifting from what you should do into what you want to do. Freedom beckons and this month, you will have the opportunity to exercise it.

Your ruling sign of Mars gives you an empowering boost of self-confidence before igniting your second house of resources when it moves into Taurus on January 6th. What occurs mid-month will be note-worthy and expect the unexpected with the Mars/Uranus conjunction squaring Jupiter/Saturn in your 11th house on January 20th. Whatever the outcome, it won’t be what you imagined and will also influence your experience of sharing your self-expression with the world. These themes shall reoccur throughout the year so exercise your favorite virtue… that of patience.

A relationship with an authority figure may be up for an internal review on your part. Let your mind naturally expand in seeking solutions to obstacles that are revealed. Cheers to you for your bold nature and your effort in refining your energy into useful form. Now is the time to do the work that is asked of you for your dreams to become a reality.

 

Taurus

Mantra: I am transforming.

Happy New Year to you dear Taurus of Venusian force! 2021 initiates a very potent jolt of change for you. You are undergoing a radical shift in your perception of self which may cause some anxiety initially. However, you can channel this lightning fire as you attempt to satiate your thirst for knowledge. Perhaps more than ever before you are seeking to redefine your value system in relation to “the truth”. Seeking truth requires deep and vital assessment of what you understand to be false and this should keep you busy for some time.

You become a student of life and with every lesson learned you may also have the inspiration to integrate this into your work and career. Once you have lived and experienced the unfolding of teachings from within you, the seeds of sharing what you have learned may appear. Notice them and ask yourself in what ways may your trials and tribulation be useful for others.

While Mars conjunct Uranus on January 20th shakes up the ways you navigate through this world, new light will bring forth insights unreachable beforehand. Towards the end of January, there may be a new conversation around how to balance your private and public life. Whatever the exploration reveals, your steady nature will bring forth the integration required for full circle understanding. Reach for the stars and let them guide you.

 

Gemini

Mantra: I am expanding my mind.

Happy New Year to all the Geminis out there, in here, and everywhere! And a very expansive year it is. New modes of thinking will be prompted through a deep inner exploration around your relationships with self and others. You may begin this month slipping into old ways of being that may make a 180-degree shift by the full moon on January 28th in Leo. The word for you is spectrum in this case, with a front-row seat in observing how you relate with others in your life.

Inner work is the invitation du jour, as your 8th house of psychological transformation is illuminated as we jump into 2021. Not only will this be a recurrent theme for you in the year ahead, the Mars/Uranus conjunction squaring Jupiter/Saturn will ignite a tremble in the unconscious that may take some time to surface. Not to fret, seek the opportunities that fulfill your insatiable desire for knowledge and you will stumble upon keys to uncover those mysteries.

Your mind is scintillated in new ways as Mercury traverses across Aquarius this month leading into a retrograde journey that begins on January 30th. What you discover now will be fodder for a review in depth in February. Pay attention to the subtle hints presented to you in the form of unexpected insights and let this month inspire you into new thought forms and curious contemplations.

 

Cancer

Mantra: I am diving deep.

Happy New Year to the Cancerian dancers of the moon… this year kicks off with a bang in your social sphere of influence and groups. Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus in your 11th house will certainly shift the tides of your rhythmic pulse. As a natural homebody, it may be time to rediscover yourself in the mirror of society. Ask questions around how you may be of service to the whole through your daily activities. What you will find may surprise you whether you consciously inquire or simply live into your destiny unfolding.

While you may be thinking about your intimate partnerships early this month, soon your mind will be occupying a deeper realm of self-study. Themes for discovery could be futuristic, ie how the current revelations and learning could have an impact on your friendships and society in general. Be sure to integrate your findings perhaps by keeping a journal for your inner work.

Both the new moon in Capricorn on January 12th and the full moon in Leo on January 28th will offer a significant flow of emotional surges in your personal water world. The new moon conjunct Pluto will call you into the depths of your intimacy and reflect a seachange of possibilities for growth. The Leo moon will be illuminating an expression of your values and principles as Saturn and Jupiter conjunct in Aquarius pull you into the occult experience in unique and powerful ways. Dive deep and find the freedom your heart desires.

 

Leo

Mantra: I am being of service.

Happy New Year to the Leos on the world stage of life. You are being called to serve your fellow human beings from a place of heart and consideration. What a journey into the objective lens where you are willing to shine the light onto others (all the while knowing you will have your moment again soon)! As the lion of the zodiac, your roar is powerful and your message resounds for all to acknowledge. Now you are motivated by something greater than yourself alone. Let this moment expand the horizons of all your relations.

Getting your ducks in a row and organizing your files will free up some creative space for you. Perhaps start the year off with a guttural cleanse of your drawers and any piles that have been overlooked and notice what you notice in the process. Observe the journey as you clear up any tendrils of the past and watch as the spaciousness arrives perhaps in the form of magnetizing a new partnership of some kind.

Excitement and change erupt when Mars and Uranus come together on January 20th in your tenth house of career and public life.

Virgo

Mantra: I am integrating.

Happy New Year Virgos of the perfect starlit night! Dreams are made of the days to come when your creative self-expression becomes a part of your daily habitual life. Routines are designed to be enhanced not to be left in the boring realm of just the way it is. 2021 is going to spice up your approach to work and service in ways your Virgo mind has never seen before.

A new moon in fellow earth sign Capricorn, conjunct Pluto--- Lord of the underworld, will support powerful access into new depths of creative resourcefulness. You may not recognize some of this energy that you’ll be presented with yet trust you’ll be able to wield it with precision by the end of the month.

This is no ordinary start to a year (although 2020 certainly had its unique initiation for sure) and the magnitude of surprise coming will surge throughout your 9th house of adventure and of the higher mind. New concepts you may have yet considered could challenge ways of thinking and being. Saturn and Jupiter acquiesce in their opposite natures as they continue their journey through Aquarius together in your 6th house of Virgo.

With a yearning for harmony on your mind, you will begin this year exploring these Libran themes while rooting into new realms of “home”. What does it mean for you to feel grounded and supported amongst the continuous flow of change that beckons you in these times?

A new moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in your 4th house will invite you to further your capacity and uplevel your responsibility in family matters.

Regardless of how this cosmic fire consumes you, you will definitely feel the transformational churn.

There is a need to create a strong foundation for your immediate future while channeling the urge to self-express your creative impulse.
