Your senses are a lot keener right now and you can intuitively pick up subtle energies around you. You are more receptive right now, and your self-expression may be directed at service to others, as ego is not as strong. Spiritual concerns may claim your attention and understanding the deeper meaning is important. It is a good time for meditation and withdrawal.
Expect a time of intensity that will force you to face the deeper aspects of reality. There is a lot of power in the air so it is best to make the most of this time. Plutonian energy is very strong and even though it may seem ego driven, it is more transpersonal and meant to shake situations for the better. Avoid high crime areas this week! It will be a busy time especially when it comes to relating and communicating with others. Be careful not to speak from purely egotistic motives. You may have issues with authority figures.
You may be feeling a bit cautious because it is hard to see the bigger picture. Maintain a positive attitude and you can have great intellectual precision. There is a certain amount of tension around and you may have the urge to get into that argument just for the sake of it. This may be coming from your subconscious so be aware of your moods and reactions towards others. Try to be more diplomatic as others may sense hostility from you. If you are accident prone be wary of dangerous activities. Be aware of sudden impulses this week.
NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN Jan 13th
January 13, 2021 marks the beginning of a new emotional cycle, as the Sun and Moon conjoin at 23° of Capricorn. This New Moon is closely conjunct Pluto at 24° of Capricorn, illuminating a path to direct personal power. All new lunar cycles represent a fresh start, a time to set new intentions on a clear slate. Saturn, the ruler of this Capricorn Moon, has now moved past Pluto, and entered into the air sign of Aquarius, along with Jupiter. Mercury, the messenger planet of the human mind, has also moved into Aquarius and is conjunct Jupiter.
As the old structures of the past continue to collapse, a new era is being born. Saturn conjunct Jupiter conjunct Mercury serves to create a positive solution squad. An energy is created by these three that encourages finding new solutions, as humanity emerges in an endeavor to build new structures of support, in a brand new world. This conglomeration of problem solvers, conjoined in Aquarius, is square to the troublesome trio consisting of Uranus, Mars, and Black Moon Lilith, in the Earth sign of Taurus. This tense square aspect is where agitated power dynamics at play may present themselves. The kind of dynamics that hold the possibility of producing breakthrough energy. It encourages establishing new protocols of participating with one another and supports putting a plan into action.
A newly arrived Venus is at 6° of Capricorn during this New Moon. The presence of this interpersonal planet allows for any newly shifted values to be aligned with the fresh structures of stability that are being created in 2021. Also, Neptune at 18°of Pisces will be in a tight square to the lunar nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius, challenging a release of the old ego attachments, and stimulating a conscious desire to expand and evolve into the future self.
With a plethora of planets all transiting the last three signs of the Zodiac, the final push of a New Era is being birthed on this planet. This powerful new lunar cycle offers the opportunity to pursue desired objectives in peace. Spiritual aspirations can be achieved, yet Saturnian ruled Capricorn requires determined dedication. This process of evolving has value on a societal scale and contributes positively to the collective.
The Sun, Moon, Pluto conjunction at play during this initiating lunation serves to polish sovereign power. The totality of the aspects represented at this time are demanding truth. Something that has eluded society for far too long. Along with the new lunar shift, Uranus stations direct in Taurus the day after, on January 14th. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and this change in direction evokes a change in energy upon the Earth. Layers upon layers of newness are now emerging as humanity moves into a New Age. There will be no better time this year to create all that is emotionally fulfilling than this New Moon in Capricorn.
The planet Uranus in mythology was one of the original “Sky Gods”, a Titan, and once, even the ruler of the known universe! Quite a title, right? This ancient planet was discovered in 1781 and given the qualities of that time – namely, the chaos and liberation due to the American Revolution.
Hence, Uranus is all about freedom, indolence, unpredictability and instability. It’s the planet of sweeping and rapid changes, of progression and forward movement. It also rules technology and the future and is the modern ruler of Aquarius. Right now, Uranus is in the placid, peaceful sign of Taurus – an uncomfortable place for a revolutionary planet to be! Uranus brings progressiveness and shocking changes to the themes of this sign – namely, financial matters, issues of physical security, the home, commitment in relationships, stability, food production and distribution and agriculture.
Uranus has been Retrograde since August 2020, and now goes Direct on January 14th. There’s been much confusion and unpredictable change to these Taurean issues. But, from January, we can expect quick, progressive movement, and changes when it comes to digital currencies, homing, general security and so on. Things will be moving very fast!
A few days after Uranus turns Direct it squares bounteous and expansive Jupiter, planet of luck, growth and sometimes, excess. This is the only square that these two planets will meet in, unlike the Saturn-Uranus square, which happens a few times over the course of 2021, as well as 2022!
We may see sudden and abrupt rebellions and demands for freedom, personally and collectively with this Jupiter-Uranus square, and an unwillingness to conform or follow the rules. In fact, we might be a little reckless! Soon after, on January 20th, Mars and Uranus meet in a conjunction in Taurus, which only adds fuel to the fire! Mars is the planet of action, and when he meets with Uranus in this way, the results are explosive! Sudden financial changes, quitting a job, pushing against the way things are done are all themes we can look for over this chaotic time.
However, what we need to remember is that Uranus, whilst unsettling and crazy, does bring a sense of liberation from all the things that tie us down. It’s a good idea for us to keep this in mind, lest we get caught up in Uranus-anxiety.
Towards the end of the month, January 26th, Uranus and the Sun square each other, and this, too, has us demanding our freedom, and refusing to conform or toe the line – sometimes even to our own detriment. Are we kicking up a fuss simply because we can? Are we rebels with a cause - or without one? This is an important question to ask as February brings along economic, world shifts with the series of Saturn-Uranus squares.
One thing is certain and that is change. With Uranus Direct, things can happen, quickly, and often, what we least expect. Even well-seasoned Astrologers know to never try and nail down what Uranus is going to bring. Instead, we set intentions to be flexible, open and ready for the future - and willing to change with the times!
