JANUARY 2021 HOROSCOPES

Aries

Health still needs watching until the 20th, but afterwards you’re going to see dramatic improvement. Two long term planets are now in harmonious aspect with you where they were in stressful aspect last year. Things are looking up. In the meantime enhance the health through more rest, where possible and through back, knee, arm and shoulder massage until the 8th. Arm and shoulder massage are good after the 8th as well, but then add ankle and calf massage. (Your health planet changes signs on the 8th.) Mars, the Lord of your Horoscope, moves into the money house on the 7th. This is good for earnings. Also it receives good aspects until the 20th. After the 20th earnings will happen but with more work and complication involved. Mars will travel with Uranus from the 18th to the 21st. Be more mindful on the physical plane. This is a dynamic aspect. You seem more involved with friends then. An important meeting happens. You are still in a yearly career peak until the 20th so the career is going well. On the 9th, Venus (which rules both your finances and love life) enters the 10th house and stays there the rest of the month. On the financial level this is good. Your good career reputation brings earnings opportunities. You are focused on money and this is 90% of the battle. We get what we focus on. For singles love happens as you pursue your career goals or with people involved in your career. You seem more cautious in love this period (usually you are a love at first sight kind of person). Status and power are romantic turn ons.

Taurus

Health will now need a lot more watching and focus – especially from the 20th onwards. Energy levels are nowhere near where they were last year. Things you did with ease last year are not so easy now. Perhaps you jogged or biked x amount of miles, now it is more difficult. Listen to the body. If there is discomfort while you are working out or involved in athletics – take a break. Part of the problem is that Mars will be in your sign from the 7th onwards and this could push you to overdo things. Energy might not be up to par, but the cosmos compensates you in other ways. Career is super from the 20th onwards. 40% of the planets are either in your 10th house or moving through there. So you are successful this month. Finances also seem good. Mercury, your financial planet, moves into your 10th house of career. This shows that bosses, parents or parent figures are supportive of your financial goals. A pay raise (official or unofficial) is likely. Your good career reputation enhances earnings. Finances seem temporarily stressed on the 9th and 10th, but a nice bonanza happens right after – on the 11th or 12th. Mercury travels with Jupiter. This is a nice financial aspect for the spouse, partner or current love as well. Love also seems happy. The Sun travels with your love planet from the 13th to the 15th and after the 9th. Venus starts to make nice aspects with your love planet as well.

Gemini

The year ahead – and this coming month – looks healthy and successful. Two long term planets – Jupiter and Saturn – are making harmonious aspects with you. Health will be even better after the 20th. With the planetary power now at your back, supporting you, all kinds of things that seemed impossible last year are now eminently possible. Your 8th house is very strong until the 20th. Thus this is a good month for detox and weight loss regimes. It is good for “cleaning house” – mentally, emotionally and physically. Get rid of the unnecessary in your life. Go through your possessions – what you don’t use should be given away or sold. This applies to your mental and emotional life. Unhelpful thought and emotional patterns should be gotten rid of. (Meditation is a big help here.) When you get rid of the extraneous – the non-useful – you suddenly have wings and are ready for the planetary influx into your 9th house on the 20th. There are travel opportunities. College level students do well (but they are earning it). There is a sense of optimism in your life. Your horizons are expanded. Philosophical and religious breakthroughs will happen. There is a happy romantic meeting on the 11th or 12th. Finance doesn’t seem an issue this month. Your money house is basically empty (only the Moon moves through there on the 26th and 27th). This is generally good. You are content with the financial situation as it is and have no need to give it undue attention.

Cancer

Health still needs watching until the 20th, but afterwards you will see dramatic improvement. Enhance the health with more rest and with thigh, calf and ankle massage. Give the ankles more support when you exercise. Detox regimes are also good. The month ahead is very social. You’re still in the midst of a yearly love and social peak until the 20th. Singles have many romantic opportunities and it is difficult to make choices. You get along with many different kinds of people – intellectuals, scientists and programmers, wealthy people, athletes and entertainers and people with strong family values. Romantic opportunities happen in the usual places – parties and gatherings. But family could also be playing a role in love. Finances are mixed. Until the 20th your social contacts seem important. You have rich friends and they seem helpful. On the 20th, as your financial planet moves into your 8th house, you seem involved in making others rich – especially the spouse, partner or current love. He or she is having an outstanding financial month (but he or she is definitely earning it). The 28th to the 30th is a very strong financial period. Your financial planet travels with Jupiter. Mars, your career planet, travels with Uranus from the 18th to the 21st. This is a very dynamic aspect. You, parents, and parent figures need to be more mindful on the physical plane. Career changes can be happening as well.

Leo

Since December of last year, 3 long term planets are in stressful alignment with you. After the 20th, short term planets join the party. So health needs watching. Overall energy is not what it was last year. You need to make adjustments. The important thing is to listen to the messages the body sends you – especially when you exercise or are doing physical work. Just because you did things easily last year doesn’t mean you can do it this year (or after the 20th). But your body will tell you. The good news is that your 6th house of health is very powerful until the 20th and you’re paying attention here. Make sure to get enough rest. Enhance the health with back, knee, ankle and calf massage. There are new therapies – cutting edge ones – that could help you. This is a month where you don’t force your will on events. Let others have their way so long as it isn’t destructive. Allow your good to come to you through others. You are popular this month. You seem focused on others. You put them above yourself. You’re a good friend to have these days. On the 20th you begin a yearly love and social peak. Singles are meeting all kinds of new people. While marriage might not be advisable, there is love happening. Your social grace and popularity is helpful in your financial life. Likability is just as important financially as your skills. Mercury will go retrograde on the 30th so try wrap up important purchases and investments before then.

Virgo

Health is good this month, yet you seem very focused on it – more so than usual. Hopefully you won’t magnify little things into big things. Chances are the bodily annoyances are not anything serious. There can be a health drama from the 18th to the 21st as Mars travels with your health planet Uranus. Perhaps a surgery is recommended to you. But detox should be explored. And even if you need a surgery you seem well able to go through it successfully. You are still in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 20th. Time for fun and for exploring the rapture side of life. Work is always important to you, but you can shift some energy to fun and creativity. Your financial planet, Venus, is in your 4th house of home and family until the 9th. Thus family support should be good and working both ways. You are supportive of them and they are supportive of you. You spend more on the home but can earn from it as well. On the 9th, Venus moves into Capricorn in your 5th house. This shows happy money. You earn in happy ways and spend on happy things. The financial judgement is sound and though you are more speculative after the 9th, you’re not likely to overdo it. Love is reasonable this month. It probably goes smoother before the 20th than afterward. There is love in your life – someone spiritual and/or artistic.

Libra

Health is on the upswing this year, but until the 20th, it still needs watching. Much of the long term stress if now off of you. The stress this month comes mostly from the short term planets and they are temporary. Day by day, health and energy are improving. A huge burden is lifted off of your shoulders. In the meantime continue to enhance the health through foot massage and spiritual healing techniques - there are many. If you feel under the weather, see a spiritual type healer. Your 4th house of home and family is very strong until the 20th. And, most of the planets are below the horizon of your chart. You are in the night time of your year. So focus on home, family and most importantly, your emotional wellness. This is a time for building the psychological foundations upon which a successful career is based. It is a good month for those of you involved in psychological type therapies. There will be progress and insights. On the 20th, your 5th house of fun, creativity and children becomes very powerful. 50% of the planets are either there or moving through there. So you are unusually creative. Women of childbearing age are unusually fertile. You are in a period of personal pleasure - a personal pleasure peak. So enjoy your life. Joy itself is a powerful healing force. Love is improving this month. You and the beloved are in harmony this month. Love is more erotic. The spouse, partner or current love is focused on finance and will have a good financial month. He or she should be more mindful on the physical plane from the 18th to the 21st.

Scorpio

Health will need a lot more watching from the 20th onwards. It won’t hurt to be more mindful of health even before that. Many long term planets are in stressful alignment with you and after the 20th some short term ones join the party. So make sure to get enough rest. Listen to the messages the body sends you - especially when working out or indulging in sports. Dramas at home and with the family - especially from the 18th to the 21st - are not helping matters. Enhance the health with exercise and scalp and face massage until the 7th. After the 7th neck and throat massage is powerful (exercise is good then too). This is not a very strong career month. Its more about getting the psychological structures - the foundation of the career - in right order. In fact, with your career planet moving through the 4th house from the 20th onward your real career is your family and emotional wellness. A career setback or disappointment on 23rd or 24th is quickly followed by a career boost from the 28th to the 30th. Until the 20th your mission is to gain the intellectual knowledge needed for career goals. Students below the college level should do well in their studies as they are very focused here. Love is very complicated this month. Uranus has been in your 7th house for some years now. On the 7th Mars joins him. This is a recipe for instability. The spouse, partner or current love should be more careful on the phsycial plane this month - especially from the 18th to the 21st.

Sagittarius

The month ahead is prosperous, Sagittarius. Enjoy. First off, you’re in the midst of a yearly financial peak. This will continue all month. Jupiter, the Lord of your Horoscope is traveling with your financial planet early in the month. This also shows prosperity. Health is excellent. There is only one long term planet (and you’ve had this for many years) in stressful alignment with you. All the others are either in harmony or leaving you alone. So, you have plenty of energy to achieve whatever you set your mind to. Finance, as we mentioned, is the main focus this month, but now that Jupiter is in your 3rd house (and other planets join in after the 20th) the month ahead is also about pursuing intellectual interests. It is good for earning money through the mind, through communication, through good sales, marketing and PR. But it is also good for students below the college level. The mental faculties are enhanced. Studies should go well. It is a great month for attending lectures, seminars and workshops in subjects that interest you. There is a happy travel opportunity at the end of the month. Love also seems happy this month - but especially on the 11th and 12th when Mercury travels with Jupiter. Your love planet is in the money house until the 8th. This shows an allurement to wealth. Material gifts turn you on. This is how you show love and how you feel loved. On the 8th, Mercury moves into your 3rd house and romantic opportunities can happen in school, school functions, lectures, seminars and the book shop. You are allured to people who are easy to talk to.

Capricorn

A happy and prosperous month ahead Capricorn. Enjoy. Health is now much improved over last year. You’re in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure cycle until the 20th and after the 20th you enter a yearly financial peak. Venus is in your sign from the 9th onwards. Your personal appearance shines. You are less grumpy than you were last year. Your social grace and charisma is strong. Elders, bosses, parents and parent figures seem devoted to you. And though you’re not in a strong career period, happy career opportunities are seeking you out. Love doesn’t seem a big issue as your 7th house of love is empty – only the Moon will visit there on the 26th and 27th. Thus love seems status quo. There is a contentment with things as they are. A very good month for weight loss and detox regimes. Good for enjoying the pleasures of the body and for getting it in the shape that you want. A physical kind of month. There can be some family dramas from the 18th to the 21st. Perhaps repairs are needed in the home. Family members – and especially a parent or parent figure – should be more mindful on the physical plane. Finances, as was mentioned, are good. On the 14th your financial planet, Uranus, starts to move forward after many months of retrograde motion. So there is financial clarity and confidence now. You are practical in finances but also gifted with a super intuition these days. Your spiritual planet, Jupiter will spend the year ahead in your money house.

Aquarius

Jupiter and Saturn – two opposite planets, with opposite tendencies – occupy your 1st house all month (and all year). Jupiter in your 1st house tends to indulgence – the high life – the fine foods, restaurants and wines. It tends towards weight gain. Saturn is just the opposite. He is spartan. A minimalist. So, the way this usually works out is you swing from bingeing to dieting – back and forth. Women of childbearing age are very fertile, but the pregnancy can be complicated. Saturn is your spiritual planet. In the 1st house he brings spiritual teachings on how to mold and shape the body as you will. In general the spiritual life is very active this month. Your 12th house is chock full of planets. So spiritual breakthroughs are happening – and these are very joyous kinds of events. Health needs watching from the 7th to the 20th. After the 20th, short term planets enter your sign and ease the stress. So, as always, make sure to eat right and stay in a good emotional state. Rest when tired. Finances will be good this month. Next month will be even better. Your financial planet, Neptune, is moving forward and receiving very nice aspects until the 20th. Love is happy too. Your love planet will be in your 12th house of spirituality until the 20th. This shows an allurement for spiritual type people – and romantic opportunities happen in spiritual venues. After the 20th, your love planet moves into your sign. Love finds you, you probably can’t even escape it. The only issue is a need to compromise with the beloved. You don’t seem in agreement. Perhaps family is getting in the way.

Pisces

Spirituality and altruistic activities are always important to you. But now – ever since Jupiter, your career planet, moved into your 12th house in December, it has become a career issue. There are various ways to read this. If you’re involved in a worldly career, you can further it by getting more involved in charitable or altruistic (pro bono) activities. Your spiritual understanding helps the career. Career guidance comes to you through psychics, tarot readers, spiritual channels and astrologers. But another way to read this is that your spiritual practice – your spiritual growth IS the real career. Career will bloom after the 20th. But the 11th and 12th are also good career days. Health and energy are excellent this month. Venus moves away from her stressful aspect on the 9th. From the 9th onwards there are no planets in stressful alignment with you. Only the Moon (and only occasionally) will make stressful aspects. So you have plenty of energy and with energy comes optimism and a “can do” spirit. Your empty 6th house shows that you don’t need to focus on health as “it ain’t broke” and doesn’t need fixing. However, if you want to enhance health, back and knee massage is good until the 20th. After the 20th, ankle and calf massage are good. Love seems happy. Until the 8th, Mercury, your love planet, is in your 9th house. Thus romantic opportunities can happen in college, university or religious functions – perhaps at your place of worship. After the 8th, it happens in spiritual settings and with spiritual type people.
