Or better still treat yourself to a session and see how to navigate the twists and turns of 2021.
Hey Aries. With Mercury, our planet of communication retrograde in Aquarius, in your eleventh house of hopes and wishes, you have until the 21st to revisit ideas and dreams you may have had on the back burner. And with my two big boys, Saturn and Jupiter firmly in Aquarius now, the focus of your life has really shifted to plans and dreams that you are keen to put a voice too. Just watch out around the 21st, as Mercury closes in on Saturn who is in a tight hard square with Uranus in Taurus. Shocking or surprising news may come out that could see you having to make difficult decisions.
There is a New Moon in Aquarius on the 11th, which despite the challenges you may be facing, in connection with your ideals, gives you a chance for a fresh look at plans, and how you can tweak them to keep everybody happy.
This month’s Full Snow Moon in Virgo is on the 27th. The Moon is in the area of your chart to do with service to others, also health and pets. There is a sense, with this moon that you need to let go of something that no longer serves you.
The month in general, still has its challenges but at least you are now very familiar with the territory you find yourself in. Use the energy of Mars in Taurus, in your second house, to make your money work for you and to put down firm foundations in your work.
Hey Taurus. Wow Taurus! You have really started the year on a positive note regarding your career, you are firing on all cylinders. But do not forget the lessons of 2020 and make sure you balance your work with your health and home life. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius in your house of career is giving you second chances to really delve deep into career ideas. And Mars in Taurus in your first house, is giving you the energy to make good headway throughout this month.
However, the Saturn Uranus square mid-month, will give you a taste of what energies you can expect throughout the year, to a greater or lesser extent with regard to your career, and using the structure of Saturn to leave no stone unturned, in spite of the twists and turns that Uranus in your first house may throw at you.
A new moon in Aquarius on the 11th gives you a lovely opportunity to launch a new career idea and sow the seeds for a big project.
The Full Snow Moon on the 27th in Virgo sees you completing an important stage of a particular project you’ve been working on and gives you the green light to forge ahead. The Sun in opposition in Pisces shows you that if you really put your heart and soul in this project it could be a surprising success.
February is another exciting month for you Taurus, if you choose to take the action that your astrological map invites you to do.
Hey Gemini. Your ruling planet, Mercury is retrograde, and he’s in Aquarius your ninth house of travel, inward and physical. Don’t get too down if you have been wanting to make travel plans and they’re just not happening. Once Mercury turns direct on the 21st there may well be some light at the end of the tunnel. Use Jupiter’s expansive presence here to learn more about you, which will enrich your travels once they are back and happening. Remember, that Saturn also here, might just be slowing you down for a very good reason. Mid-month Saturn squares Uranus in the area of your chart connected with the inner you. Persevere with your inward journeys to find the nougat of gold within.
A helpful New Moon on the 11th, in Aquarius, gives you some inspiration on where you could travel to once restrictions are lifted. And by the Full Moon on the 27th in Virgo, I suspect you’ll be on the move to pastures new. This Full Snow Moon opposite the Sun, in Pisces is in your tenth house of career, so I suspect you will be gearing up to find some ways to make your career much more mobile.
Hang on in their Gemini for a while longer as it won’t be long before you can start taking bold steps forward and enjoy the challenges that this year can bring.
Hey Cancer. One way to use astrology is to think of it as a card game, and you’ve been dealt a particular selection of cards this month, and whether it’s overtly a good hand, or a bad hand, it’s how you play them.
So, what cards do you have to play with this month? Well, you’ve been given a retrograde Mercury in your eighth house of Aquarius, and this is where the focus of your life is going to pan out this year. Now Mercury, being about communication, is helping you here to sort out investments and joint finance that may have got complicated. He’s going to help you until the 21st, then he’ll be super charged to help you even more with anything to do with money that has been dragging it’s feet.
All year we have a clash to contend with between Uranus, who has to be the trickster or joker in the pack, and serious Saturn, who could be cast as the Ace of Spades. Now these two clash exactly several times this year, and you’ll get a flavour of what to expect when this first happens mid-February. Just know, that it will be about a clash between a dream your fixed on but not very flexible with, and the Aquarian energy inviting you to think outside the box and transform.
The New Moon this month on the 11th, is also in Aquarius, so the card dealer is really imploring you to take risks with new ideas that another part of you is holding back on. Take the risks I promise you’ll not be disappointed.
This month’s Full Snow Moon is in Virgo, this may have you fearing you’ve taken a risk too far in something dear to your heart that you’re trying to communicate about. So, this is where Faith must come in.
There is much more scope for you this year to work constructively with your dreams as the focus is now moving away from close relationships.
Hey Leo. Wow! The whole perspective of your life has shifted almost overnight from the serious work of the last couple of years, and lessons learned, and a restructuring of your working life. And now you have the structure in place, and it’s starting to tick over like a well-oiled engine, the cosmos is asking you to start paying attention to your close relationships, whether it be your soul mate, or even work relationships. So, this month you will really start to get a sense of how both Saturn and Jupiter, our big boys, will affect your close one to one relationships. Mercury is also in Aquarius, retrograde, until the 21st. Our planet of communication is going to be reconnecting you with loved ones or helping to rekindle a relationship you’d almost given up on. Jupiter will be bringing bountiful opportunities to think of innovative ways to meet up with that special someone and create a love bubble.
You are also going to get your first taste of the Uranus Saturn square, which is colouring the whole year. You’ll get the first glimpse mid-month when you’ll notice how your career prospects may clash with your relationships, and there may be difficult discussions to find ways to balance your work life relationships. But a New Moon in this area of relationships on the 11th, will see you sowing the seeds of passion, even if the logistics are still challenging.
The Full Snow Moon in Virgo on the 27th, shifts the focus momentarily to your finances, and it could bring an unexpected bonus which will be a welcome surprise.
This year will see the beginning of tying up of loose ends that have been dangling for far too long. Dream big Leo, as you know what? They stand a good chance of being fulfilled.
Hey Virgo. I hope you’re ready for a big shift in energies. With both Saturn and Jupiter, two of our big boys firmly ensconced in Aquarius and your house of work and service to others, you will be restructuring your working routine, and maybe investing in the latest tech equipment to enrich your working experience. And with our planet of communication Mercury retrograde here in Aquarius until the 21st, you’ll get plenty of time to re tweak the details. And on the 11th a New Moon here in Aquarius enables you to launch your new way of working.
All this year our big boy Saturn has a standoff with another big boy, the erratic planet Uranus in Taurus in your ninth house of travel and learning. You’ll get the first taste of what to expect this year from these two mid-month when they’re squaring each other. May I suggest Virgo that you try not to be too fixed and endeavor to use your Virgo mutable energy to be flexible when unexpected challenges appear.
The Full Snow Moon on the 27th is in Virgo, your sign. I think this moon is going to make you feel super charged and able to release situations that no longer serve you.
You’ll find this year that with the pressure off projects you’ve been beating yourself up about completing, that it will be so much easier. Letting go has huge rewards.
Hey Libra. Your ruling planet Venus is now nestling up to the big boys in Aquarius. And with so much action now in your house of creativity, you really need to take advantage of current restrictions to up your game with technology, you will be pleased when you have, as it will serve to enhance your life in exciting ways. I know you’re resisting it Libra, but have a go and Mercury, currently retrograde, is giving you second chances to rethink a creative project you may have been thinking of, and how you can set it in motion.
The New Moon on the 11th in Aquarius is really giving you the green light to forge ahead with creative ideas, and it might even help you to look into taking risks, with investments and expanding your piggy bank.
The weight of two of my big boys namely Saturn and Uranus all month will test your patience, especially mid-month, and this frustration with technology and finding a way to make it work for you could be a challenging energy you’ll experience on and off all year. But persevere and you might be surprised how it changes your world view.
I think you will also be attracting some interesting and exciting romantic opportunities into your life this month. And one in particular, could have you hoping things will get more intimate.
This month’s Full Snow Moon is in Virgo. And this moons energy will have you secretly feeling very pleased about the way things are moving and could see you closing a door on the past for good.
You have some wonderful opportunities this month, and this year, to really plan outside the box, and create a new vision of how you would like your life to pan out.
Hey Scorpio. Are you currently the life and soul of the party at home? Even if it is on Zoom. This month is going to see the video lines busy as you reconnect with friends and family you may have been neglecting. And the New Moon on the 11th in Aquarius, also in your home area, will see you planting seeds on how to make your home more inviting and cozier, especially with the current restrictions.
But there is an interesting drama unfolding which brings a clash of ideas between your close partner and how the home should be, or even, where the home should be. Mid-month you’ll really notice this tension, and because it will be an on off feature astrologically this year, it would be wise to find innovative ways to manage and find balance and harmony.
When retrograde Mercury links up with Jupiter at home on the 15th, a family member will have big news. But will this news be welcome? Well, the presence of Venus here as well, suggests good feelings and even a financial boost.
The Full Snow Moon on the 27th is in Virgo in your house of hopes and dreams, so it may well be that a long-held dream comes into fruition which might surprise a few people.
All in all, Scorpio, this year’s main focus has shifted into home life, family, and the close important people in your life, offering opportunities to make necessary changes, that keep most people happy.
Hey Sagittarius. With Mercury retrograde in the area of your chart connected with thought and communication, he’s giving you the opportunity to re-think how to constructively plan and accommodate your day to day working routine in a way that serves you better. You know you need to find ways to get some balance into your life, and to find things that feed your soul.
Mars in Taurus along with Uranus, suggests you could really benefit from digging a vegetable patch and really surprise people with the results. Especially whilst Mars occupies the area of your chart connected with daily routine. He is an active chap, and nothing like digging the earth to release some excess energy and frustration, and the New Moon in Aquarius on the 11th is a really good time to sow some seeds in your mind, and in the earth.
This month sees the first of a challenging aspect that flavours the whole year. Saturn our big boy of rules and restrictions amongst other things, will be in a hard angle to Uranus mid-month. The disruptions you’re likely to experience when this is active, will be with your frustration, and need to break out. The best way to handle this energy, is to look at how you can change the way you think, to help you manage the twists and turns of your daily routines. Despite the saying you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, I’d like to suggest you can.
The Full Snow Moon on the 27th is in Virgo, your house of career, and this could see you abruptly ending a work situation that no longer serves you.
There is no doubt the first two months of this year are the toughest for all of us, but you can really take extraordinary leaps forward this month, if you embrace the challenges, to really change your thinking, and think outside a very large box.
Hey Capricorn. Phew Capricorn, I bet you’re relieved my two big boys have now left your sign. The good news is that they are now in your house of finance, and Saturn will bring structure and security to long term financial plans, and Jupiter can bring sudden windfalls. Even retrograde Mercury is helping you, by giving you the opportunity to relook at ideas you may have about money making, so think outside that box and let the money flow in.
If there is a money-making idea you have, then the energies suggest exploring with caution, especially mid-month, when Saturn makes a challenging angle to Uranus in your house of creativity. This is a taste of what to expect this year, as Saturn and Uranus make this aspect on and off all year. But Saturn is your guy, Capricorn, so use that discernment to make balanced choices.
The New Moon on the 11th in Aquarius, your house of finance, gives you a stunning opportunity to sow the seeds for this new money-making opportunity, so go for it. But it’s not all about what you can accrue, a balanced life is what we all crave. And the Full Snow Moon on the 27th in Virgo, is in the area of your chart connected with travel. Even though current restrictions may make it impossible at present, why not use the energy to plan a visit to someone special later this year. Whilst Uranus lives in your house of creativity and romance, he will give you plenty of unexpected opportunities to link up with a special someone.
This month will really see you breathing far more deeply and easily, as you feel the release of the pressures of the last year.
Hey Aquarius. What’s it like being in the spotlight Aquarius? You better get used to it, as the next year will see you star of the cosmic show. And as long as the world learns to keep its distance and not impose too much on you, you’ll be fine. With two of my big boys, Saturn and Jupiter, now in your sign, you’ll be feeling confident and optimistic about how things can unfold for you this month. However, mid-month, you’ll get the first taste of the planet Uranus, your ruler, making a hard angle to Saturn in your sign. You may find it difficult with this energy to stay calm and composed. It’s quite likely you’ll really want to break out, and will find any restrictions hard to deal with, especially because a retrograde Mercury in your sign, is making you feel like every day is Groundhog Day. So, use Mercury’s energy to attend to YOU very personally, and find better ways to handle your communications with the outside world, and warm up your coolness.
You have a New Moon on the 11th in your sign, so this is really giving you an opportunity to show the world how you have also changed and can adapt.
And by the time of the Full Snow Moon on the 27th in Virgo, you will have made decisions affecting your home and how you can transform your living space to accommodate the new you.
This month will really help you get a sense of how the next two years will pan out, and how much you can grow and feel more confident about who you are.
Hey Pisces. The focus of your life has shifted considerably since December and is now very much about the inner you. This is the perfect time to use the energy of my two big boys, Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, to seek self-knowledge through counselling or some form of therapy. Jupiter will give you big opportunities to expand your consciousness, and Saturn will give you the discipline to stick to it. As a very unbounded Pisces, Saturn’s presence here will be super helpful. You will also get a flavour mid-month, of how this year will unfold, as Saturn makes a harsh aspect to Uranus in Taurus and this will push you to think and dig deep into your psyche to grow. This aspect happens on and off all year. One way to work with it would be to write your feelings and thoughts down and exercise your frustrations on the journey towards enlightenment.
There is a New Moon in Aquarius on the 11th which gives you a perfect opportunity to start in therapy or start a journal of self-discovery.
On a different note, this month’s Full Snow Moon is in Virgo, on the 11th, which sees you making a surprising decision about a close relationship. But new year, new you, is the way to go.
Trust the process of the luxury of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, as this will help you grow and evolve so that many people will be quite in awe of the new you.
