2021 is finally here! We closed 2020 with the Full Moon in Cancer on the 29th of December. That energy will carry over to this month, allowing 2021 to be a healing year for us. January sets the groundwork for the changes that will happen. Saturn and Jupiter are now in Aquarius, a change that shows that this will be a few years focused on the collective. This month begins with one of the biggest shifts and that is that Mars will finally be in an earth sign, Taurus after nearly six months in Aries. On the 6th Mars enters Taurus and will once again square Saturn but since these are different modalities, the impact will be different. Mars in Taurus likes to take its time, the moves are not as impulsive as Aries. This is a slow burn but when hot, you will need to run out of the kitchen. On the 8th, Mercury will be in Aquarius and Venus enters the sign of Capricorn our value system will be on the more practical side. We might be more inspired to save than to spend with Venus in this Earth sign. On the 13th, the New Moon in Capricorn has us changing our priorities to greater things. What we begin now will require a lot of hard work and dedication, but the payoff will be satisfying. The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th and the month ends with a Full Moon in Leo on the 28th. The Fixed energy this month will be intense, and it is a breath of fresh air compared to the Cardinal stellium in 2020. Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year.
