Good riddance to 2020! What a long, hard grind!
2021 opens with Jupiter and Saturn at the start of their tours in Aquarius. Jupiter visits the sign every 12 years, Saturn every 30. On the winter solstice (Dec 21, 2020) Jupiter formed a conjunction with Saturn. This meeting launched the start of a new twenty-year cycle of social/cultural, and economic growth. Jupiter/Saturn are also at the start of a new 200-year cycle, which is part of an even larger (800-year) cycle. Additionally, Jupiter/Saturn are synchronizing to the much bigger clock, that of a coming new world age. Sounds like a big deal, you say? It is.

Jupiter in Aquarius is a signature for social movements and trends, for the modernizing of schools of thought and our everyday reality. To the plus, it is a fresh stimulus or enlivening influence. Following on the heels of all the negativity, depression, fear and pessimism that a Capricorn transit can hold, Jupiter in Aquarius, a fresh air, or saving grace influence, can offer welcome respite. This transit can hold fresh hope, inspiration, and opportunity. It can create a buoyancy effect or bounce back we haven’t seen in a while. Certainly, there’s a lot of hopefulness pinned on the new USA administration, the newly forged Brexit agreement, and the vaccine rollout.
Jupiter will spend most of this year in Aquarius (with a short dip into Pisces waters from mid May to the end of June). Saturn in Aquarius will be with us to 2023. Jupiter aims to point the way forward, to show us where opportunity lies. Saturn in Aquarius looks to fix the cracks and potholes, or to scrap the old road and build an entirely new one. While the process of getting a better fix on the new reality and its requirements takes time, Saturn in Aquarius will speed the cementing process along. The year ahead sets us onto a faster track, this regarding the establishing of new reality baselines, a new format for everyday living, and the solidifying of a new structure of consciousness. When it comes to inclusivity, equality, caring for our elders and our young ones, and justice for all, it’s high time we re-invented our moral compass!
Neptune, continuing in dynamic (square) aspect to the karmic axis, is a key signature for the second wave pandemic spike and for the mutational strains that have recently caught our attention. Apparently, such viruses are typically mutational. Once again, the astrology agrees with the science. Continue to stay vigilant regarding your health. According to Neptune, the exposure threat continues to stay heightened through the end of January and well into February.
Mars has spent the past six months transiting Aries. It’s been quite a fight, wouldn’t you agree? As of January 6 (to March 4), Mars takes up residency in Taurus. While in this sign, Mars looks for something more substantial to have and to hold, for more worthy investments of time, heart, or money. Mars in Taurus sets a fertile and lucrative backdrop. It also finds value in quality over quantity, over slow, steady, and sustained, rather than the overnight one hit wonder. While this can be a gain-better-ground transit, Mars will not be up to full steam until it surpasses Saturn on January 13 and teams up with Uranus (conjunction) on January 21. (Also setting the backdrop for significant progress and reinvention mandates, Uranus ends retrograde on January 14.) Coinciding with Biden’s presidential inauguration on January 20, Mars conjunct Uranus infuse new initiatives with a more dynamic life force. Together, Mars/Uranus launches a next 19-month cycle focused on net worth, self worth, and survival matters. January 22, Mars gains extra turbo from Jupiter. Watch this week for added intensity and significant action regarding money markets, crypto currency, and such. (Covid numbers and the weather could be notable too.)
Venus enters Capricorn and Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8. Both transits set a helpful/lucrative backdrop for putting ambition and ingenuity into play, for exploring/finding new avenues and options. Don’t hesitate to try something (or someone) new on for size. It could be the start of something great. There’s more opportunity for the taking than we have heard from the chicken little folks. It is up to you to go out there and meet your life head on.
There are three action peaks of the month: January 8 to 14, January 19 to 22, and January 26 to 30. I’ve discussed the first two peaks in the previous paragraphs. The last week of the month hosts a full moon in Leo on January 28. We will feel the energy a few days prior. The Leo full moon is accompanied by a sun/Jupiter and a Venus/Pluto conjunction. It could be a turning point of significance for matters of heart or wallet. Watch for something or someone special to claim spotlight attention. The Leo full moon puts an added spotlight on creative ventures, children and their education, loved ones and their welfare. A relationship of significance can start or end. A birth or a pregnancy brings cause for celebration. Nothing is small or insignificant about this “take flight” or catch the wave full moon. There could be a major announcement, a special event (the Grammy awards show happens Jan 31), significant trend or big wheels set into motion, a powerplay of note, an instant success story, overnight fame, a big prize won, sudden/surprise opportunity, a life-altering moment. A speculative venture could see a pay-off. Trading and stocks are likely to hit a surge track, there’s sure to be plenty of political action too. While there’s exceptional potential wrapped in this full moon package, note that just 2 days later, Mercury in Aquarius, begins a three-week retrograde tour. Over-estimating or counting your chickens too early is unwise. As is typical of the trickster cycle, something that looked like a sure-fire bet may falter. Mercury retrograde can derail, sidetrack, etc. Mercury retrograde in wild-ride Aquarius can surprise, shock, or keep us guessing. On the other hand, Mercury retrograde can be informing. It can take you/us through an important discovery process. It is a good transit for getting back in touch with the parts of yourself you may have lost along the way and for gifting yourself extra time to sort yourself out and/or come up with something new.
ARIES March 19/20 – April 19
Mars ends its six-month tour of Aries on January 6, but it will continue to keep you well fueled for the next several months. Invest in yourself. Aim to make the most of your time and resources and you are likely to get yourself a good distance ahead.
Mars squares Saturn on January 13. This transit gets you over the hump, moves you past what-ever has been holding you up, and sets you onto a next phase or trajectory. Mars/Saturn can be a push come to shove influence, so try to keep a good grip on emotions (i.e. resentment, etc.). Mars conjunct Uranus on January 20 can spring something unexpected on you. Both transits set the reality into play in some definitive or striking way. (Be especially careful on Jan 20 or the days around it. Inspiration or opportunity is worth jumping on, but guard against impetuousness, rash action, or risks you cannot afford).
Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius set your new reality into play in some solidifying and well-defined way. Saturn loans you a sense of time on the move. Jupiter makes it opportune. There’s a certain amount of experimentation in the mix, but once you discover the right formula or direction, you’ll find things drop into place or piece together with good “meant to be” synchronicity.
Venus enters Capricorn and Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8. One thing after another, to January 14, the stars keep you working at it. Some things require effort, some come easily. Both transits set up a productive backdrop. Supporting your progress and opening the door to more lucrative opportunity, Uranus in Taurus ends retrograde on January 14.
January 19 to 23 takes you through the 2nd action peak of the month. The USA Presidential inauguration on January 20 is accompanied by Mars/ Uranus heading onto a new cycle. Whether edgy or exciting, expect this day to be highly charged. Mars/Uranus infuses extra turbo into fresh initiatives. In the days that follow, Mars square Jupiter (January 22) and the sun meets with Saturn (conjunction, January 23). Combined, these transits set a backdrop for hitting the ground running and reinventing the wheel.
Starting with a sun/Uranus square and ending with the start of Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, January 26 to 30 delivers the last action peak of the month. As is typical of both sun/Uranus and Mercury retrograde, expect the unexpected!
TAURUS April 19 – May 20
Starting January 6, Mars begins a six-week tour of Taurus. No matter whether the impetuous is desire or need, watch for this transit to boost energy and incentive. Having said that, Mars will not hit full steam ahead until it tees up with Uranus on January 20 (by conjunction) and gains more traction from Jupiter on January 22 (by square aspect). With the flick of a switch, Mars/Uranus sets a new 19-month trajectory into play. Its an ideal transit for personal reinvention, for taking a risk on the new and improve you. You could find yourself on a radical departure from where you have just been.
Venus enters Capricorn and Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8. Together, they set a time is ripe or time has come backdrop. Explore fresh options and possibilities, get going on new projects and goals. Stretch yourself. A different choice could be a great fit. Start now and you’ll soon have something more worthwhile to have and to hold. It won’t take long to get your bearings straight. A result or a confirmation can be quick, perhaps even instantaneous. Having said that, make sure to put your attention toward your long-term security and benefit.
January 19 to 22 can be an intense, sudden thrust, and/or full to the brim few days. The last week of the month is also on a dial it up trajectory. Be on the watch for the unexpected. The full moon in Leo on January 28 can pump up the drama or excitement. There’s excellent opportunity wrapped up in this full moon, give it your all. A big step or undertaking can be required (and wise).
Mercury in Aquarius travels retrograde from January 30 to February 20. The retrograde cycle can be one of added stress and guesswork. The best you can do is to stay present, let the moment reveal itself and take it one step at a time.
GEMINI May 20 – June 20
The world is moving through a time of great change and you are in the process of major personal evolution too. While there’s so much talk about what we’ve lost, it is time to look at what could be gained from a completely reinvented reality. Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius boost prospects and help you to see with fresh eyes. Watch for both transits to sharpen your intuition. Both are good for staying ahead of the curve.
After 6 months in Aries, Mars is finally on the move. As of January 6, Mars takes up a six-week tenancy in Taurus. This fertile transit stirs it up from a background or under the radar position. Mars in Taurus can colour in budding prospects in some real and tangible way. Creativity can flourish. For some, Mars in Taurus can light a romantic spark. Do what you can to get yourself prepared and be ready to hit the ground running (or to deal with the onslaught) later in the month. Mars will not get up to full speed until it aligns with Uranus (by conjunction on January 20) and Jupiter (by square aspect) on January 22.
Venus enters Capricorn and Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8. Both can fast track you and/or solidify a course of action.
There are three action peaks of the month, January 8 to 14, January 19 to 22, and January 26 to 30. Encompassing a laden with opportunity full moon in Leo (punched up by sun/Jupiter and Venus/Pluto conjunctions) the last week of the month could be somewhat of a wild ride. Seize the moment! The full moon could mark a turning point of significance, it can bring the exceptional to life and/or set you onto a whole new reality. You could hear good news. Someone you love or admire could claim spotlight attention. Mercury in Aquarius begins a three-week retrograde cycle on January 30. By now, you know the drill. The usual Mercury retrograde advice applies.
CANCER June 20 – July 22
The advance of Jupiter and Saturn out of Capricorn and into Aquarius holds the potential to provide a level of relief, especially so if you have felt the past year or so has produced nothing but one roadblock after another. Having said that, the pandemic will continue to present challenge and to permanently alter our everyday living. It can take significant time to make a full bounce-back or to move yourself to higher ground.
Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius urge you to go on the hunt for new sources of income and also to find a new way to communicate your needs, to express what’s in your heart and soul, to get your message across to the right audience (be that one other, the group, or the outside world). Consider adding new skills to your repertoire. Don’t hesitate to sign up for training or to seek advice from new sources. These transits can also alter your relationship with your significant other, with a community or team, or with someone important to you (i.e. a parent, friend, business partner, or advisor).
Giving you something more tangible or substantial to work with and/or shoot for, Mars leaves Aries for Taurus on January 6. To the plus, this transit can produce more viable financial prospects. Mars will not be up to full steam until it meets with Uranus (by conjunction) on January 20 and gains an extra boost from Jupiter (square aspect) on January 22. Mars/Uranus is a crack-the-code/crack-it-open transit. If the tension gets to be too much, this could be a breaking point for a relationship or circumstance. The sooner you rip the bandage off and face the truth/the inevitable, the faster you will meet with progress. More and better awaits the brave of heart. Don’t settle for less. Ask for more, from yourself, from your life.
Venus enters Capricorn and Mercury enters Aquarius on January 8. Combined, they can bring a sense of right time, right place. A relationship or goal that holds merit thrives under these transits. If it is time to put it to an end, they will make the reality too obvious to ignore.
Try to stay ahead of the curve as best you can throughout the month. Encompassing a full moon in Leo on January 28 and the start of Mercury retrograde on January 30 (and a few more triggering transits) the last week of January can produce opportunity, challenge, or an onslaught. Life hits a faster track. Expect to witness or deal with more than you might expect.

CAPRICORN December 21 - January 20
Jupiter, Saturn, and Pallas Athene (a shorter transit) have recently exited your sign to take up residency in Aquarius. If you haven’t felt the energy shift, you will soon enough. Both Jupiter and Saturn accelerate a significant self discovery and personal reinvention process, one that has likely been in the works for quite some time.

There are three peak activation periods in the month: January 8 to 14, January 19 to 22, and January 26 to 30. Mars surpasses a pressure point or hold up with Saturn on January 13. Uranus, your ruler, ends a six-month retrograde tour on January 14. I’ve already mentioned January 20 to 22. The sun’s square to Uranus on January 26 can be the kick-off to an intensity building few days. (Watch the money markets, the weather, and world stage). January 28 delivers a full moon in Leo, pumped up by sun/Jupiter (conjunction) and Venus/Pluto (finances, emotions, power-plays, mortality). Nothing is small or insignificant.

PISCES February 18/19 to March 19/20
Neptune continues to keep the world and you in a crossroads place. Continuing in dynamic aspect to the karmic axis, Neptune is a key signature for the second wave pandemic spike, also for the mutational strains that have recently caught our attention. Apparently, the characteristics of such viruses are typically mutational. Once again, the astrology agrees with the science. Continue to stay vigilant regarding your health. According to Neptune, the threat of exposure stays heightened through the end of January and into February.
Jupiter and Saturn (and the shorter transit of Pallas Athene) in Aquarius take up residence in a background, undercurrent, or out of sight way. Even so, they are dynamic influences, so don’t under-estimate their workings. You’ll find the time you spend alone to be productive. Both Jupiter and Saturn assist you to crack a long running code. It is one that’s buried deep in your programming. Both transits spark a new creative process. You’ll feel this as flashes of inspiration or intuition. The more frequently the flashes occur, the stronger the message or potential.
Mars enters Taurus on January 6. On January 13, Mars will be over the hump with Saturn. On January 14, Mars joins forces with planet Uranus. You’ll feel this Mars/Uranus action as a kickstart, kick it up a notch, let off steam, or sudden full thrust influence. An impulse, inspired moment, or quick response could be the it” ticket. Know also that Mars/Uranus can spark an abrupt onset, an onslaught, or take you by surprise. Stay alert for anything goes.
Venus enters Capricorn and Mercury advances into Aquarius on January 8. Both transits keep you/it moving along. There are 3 peak action periods of the month, January 8 to 14, January 19 to 22, and January 26 to 30. The last week of the month warehouses a full moon in Leo punched up by sun/Jupiter and Venus/Pluto conjunctions. Expect a lot of whatever sets into motion. To the plus, the full moon can be a lucrative turn-it-around time. There’s good opportunity waiting for the brave of heart or wallet. Even so, please note, that Mercury in Aquarius begins a three-week retrograde tour on January 30. As is typical of the retrograde cycle, sometimes things fall apart or don’t go as planned. Keep on watch for the unexpected.
