Plus Mercury, Mars, Venus Changing Signs
Hello Astrology Lovers! Happy to be back. I took a few weeks off from writing and videos so now I am refreshed and ready to get back to it.
Since we are already into the first full week of January I want to start with Wednesday January 6th and Mars finally changing signs. He has been in Aries since June 30, 2020 went retrograde and has stirred up a lot of action, anger and movements across the world and in our hearts. It will take some time before we can process all of those feelings so be good to yourself.
Mars is in Taurus as of January 6 at 5:27 PM EST the action-oriented focus of Mars in Aries will now be grounded by the sign of Taurus. Over the next 8 weeks as Mars moves through this sign we should start to see a change in focus from being self-centered, aggressive and competitive to a more stable and secure feeling. Slowly but surely we should be able to engage with more patience, tolerance and acceptance where we need it most.
To be clear we are not lying down to be a door mat, what we are doing is being kind and easy with ourselves and others. That is how I plan use it.
Mars in Taurus Patience or Frustration?
However, there will be some of us that feel frustrated and irritated by this placement of Mars. This is because Mars is always wanting to act but now that he dawns the garb of Taurus he has to work his assertive nature through this sign. And that can feel very frustrating to some. This is especially true the closer Mars gets to Uranus. That conjunction happens on January 20th and we will certainly be feeling it as it gets closer.
Let’s move on now. Friday January 8th Mercury enters Aquarius at 7:00 AM EST and Venus will enter Capricorn at 10:41 AM EST. Two planets changing signs within hours of each other means fresh opportunities while in the background some of the old programing is still running.
Mercury is in Aquarius for 9 weeks from January 8 till March 15 because he will retrograde during this time. While Mercury is not in rulership or exaltation in this sign, Aquarius is an Air sign and he loves that! Use this time to push yourself out of your comfort zone in regard to what you think, read and how you communicate.
With so many planets in the sign of Aquarius; the Sun will be there soon. We are being asked to step into these new levels of understanding, frequencies and experiences. Clearing out the old mental clutter so we can make room for new experiences. We need to move beyond predictable behavior and thinking. As humans we are here to explore and expand and step further into our extraordinary selves.
Mercury and Mars Square Off
During the time Mercury is in Aquarius and Mars is in Taurus they will square off twice in these fixed signs. January 8 and February 10. Those are days to mark on your calendar. We will most likely feel a significant amount of tension around those two days. Recognize what is bothering you and use the opportunity of this awareness to move beyond your self-imposed limitations.
With Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius now as well, as individuals we have an opportunity unlike any before to evolve beyond our current limitations.
Venus in Capricorn for the coming 3 weeks is a whole different feeling than what the prior planets are forecasting. Venus working through the sign of Capricorn is asking us to hone in on what it is we love, value and to recognize our self-worth. Capricorn is about respect, honor and practicality. It is serious, frugal and cautions. Not typical words we use when speaking about Venus but this is ok because at some point in time we need to recognize and honor those things, people or circumstances for the grounded value that they provide us.
New Moon 23 Capricorn January 12/13, 2021
The New Moon in Capricorn will be on January 13 right at midnight 12:00 AM eastern time zone. Any further west of that time zone and you will have New Moon on January 12th.
This New Moon is at 23 degrees of Capricorn and that is a sore spot in the Astrology wheel right now due to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto moving back and forth over that degree for most of 2020. With the New Moon in this placement we have a fresh opportunity to start something new.
For those of you that love to do rituals, goal setting and prayers at the New Moon there is some prep work you should do beforehand. During the 2 days before this Lunar event it is recommended that you clear, release and let go. I am sure there are plenty of things to let go of these days. What did 2020 show you? Did find out how much you relay on someone or something? Did you recognize that you are your main support? Has the floor crumbled beneath your feet? Sounds really scary I get it. But if you can take the time before this New Moon to address these questions or ones that you will formulate, you will than have the space you need to create your current base from a more solid foundation. Using the New Moon, once it arrives, to set more up to date goals based on your current situation for a more enduring future.
Jupiter Square Uranus January 17, 2021
The next aspect to talk about is between Jupiter and Uranus. This only happens once and on January 17th. This rebellious energy will spark many people to speak up, act out and head to the streets if they are so inclined to protest and revolt. Not all of us are activists but the ones that are will be feeling strongly over this weekend that something needs to change. It feels very harsh and that seems to be the way of the world right now.
Personally, as I have already mentioned in the beginning of this forecast, we can also use these times to clear out mental clutter and old beliefs so there is room to grow, expand and reach for higher frequencies and new ways of being.
The Sun will enter the sign of Aquarius on January 19, 2021 at 3:40 PM EST plus Mars and Uranus are about to conjunct on January 20, 2021. I will write about them next week for us, as well as the rest of January.
