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