2021 is here:
This year is starting off with Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius and this is particularly good for those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Aquarius.
Aquarius is the inventor in the Zodiac and the team player. They want humanitarian organizations to develop a better world where all of humanity is taken care of. Advancements will continue in technology.
The new Moon on January 13th is in the sign of Capricorn at 23 degrees at 12:00AM midnight. Capricorn giving way to the less traditional ways of doing things with Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury all in Aquarius.
The sign of Capricorn is starting new beginnings. Death is still at our doorstep with Uranus and Mars both conjunct square to Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter. The virus has become so powerful that the leaders of Congress and our new elected President are at a crossroads. It is time for a new beginning with this new Moon.
President elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn form a stellium (Conjunction) between each other on inauguration day in the sign of Aquarius. Clearly this shows an administration that reflects all the different elements of the American culture as Aquarius loves to do things differently and with variety.
The new Moon in Capricorn wants things to stay the same with the power of the federal government, but the planetary combination created by Aquarius could turn the tides of illness and death too life and liberty.
The virus continues to grow till January 21, 2021 as Mars squares into Saturn and Jupiter in the first few weeks of January 2021. Then we should start to see the vaccine taking us in a more positive direction.
However, as you are hearing in the news, the relief for money too the states to get the vaccine out has been held up by the Senate majority. This is why the vaccine distribution is so slow.
The medical leaders in America are mirroring the stars regarding timing. The total new Moon solar eclipse that happened on December 14, 2020 was in Sagittarius. This sign is affiliated with international countries. Eclipse energy lasts 6 months and this eclipse conjunct the galactic center has a powerful effect.
Six months from December 14 takes us to the middle of June. Could this be the time we know we are out of this 2020 nightmare? I think so. Not totally out, that would be six months from the eclipse starting on June 10th, 2021. December of 2021.
The good news is a more relaxed summer of 2021 with larger gatherings being safe.
It is Europe, especially the royal British empire, that is reaping karma sowed by murdering and enslaving so many countries like Africa, India, American Indians just to name a few. This could be the area that gets hit the hardest in the first few months of 2021. Look for major shifts in the British Royalty leaders.
We have eclipses in May, June, November and December. Mercury retrogrades will be in the air signs in 2021.
Saturn square to Uranus, the first square February 2021 could bring home the reality of financial instability as most countries are in great debt due to the pandemic.
Jupiter will enter Pisces in mid May 2021 till late July and this gives those with Pisces energies needed luck in all areas of their life. Aquarius and Pisces are receiving lots of luck this year.
The Pluto return in U.S.A chart shows transformation and change is up for the way we do business and the way we approach government. We may hear of a new 3rd party developing.
Americans are very turned off by the federal government. They want more coming from local state government and more organizations run by the people locally that handle the needs of their communities rather than waiting for Congress to ok everything as they moved very, very, very slow to help their people in 2020.
Overall, we should have an incredibly happy 2nd half of 2021 where businesses and venues open to more normal ways of life. The beaches will be filled, and concert venues will also start to fill up. The fourth of July should bring needed firework displays. A huge party is about to happen.
In January of 2021, it still looks like we are stuck with the virus and as I mentioned earlier, we will see a change in a more positive direction starting around January 21, 2021. Mars will finally move on from its square to Saturn.
Mars will move into Taurus on January 6th and will conjunct Uranus in Taurus on January 15th through the 21st in square to Jupiter in Aquarius. This is a financial wake up call.
It will be interesting to see how Wall Street will react around this time. Wall Street has not reflected the reality of what is going on AROUND THE WORLD (Jupiter). This could also be a time of talk for more stimulus.
Mercury moves into Aquarius on January 8th as well as Venus moving into Capricorn on the same day. Capricorn’s attract more money and romance till February 2, 2021.
Our first Mercury retrograde of 2021 in Aquarius will SR on January 30th at 26 degrees and will SD on February 21st at 11 degrees of Aquarius. Out of its shadow on March 13, 2021.
If you have Sun, Moon, rising or any other planets in Aquarius, you are planning and thinking about your future. This is a great energy for inventors and working with groups and organizations. Planning for actions taken after Mercury turns direct.
Education gets lots of attentions around this time also. Video conferencing continues a bit with more investment in computers and getting thousands more to Wi-Fi and internet access.
A new Moon is in Capricorn on January 13th as mentioned at the beginning of this column. At 23 degrees, it's a change of the guard from traditiional Capricorn too Aquarius. This is also the time that Mars square to Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury is helping the virus continue its manifestation and the most deaths.
Uranus turns direct January 14th and now we have all planets in direct motion till January 30th. The international banking families, there are 8 major families, are at a turning point. They know they could lose everything if they do not start to forgive some of the debt in several countries.
Uranus is in Taurus the money sign. New ways of doing business are on the menu for 2021 and this starts off that energy. Bitcoin and other new investment groups will start to take hold more.
The Sun moves into the sign of Aquarius on January 19th. Happy Birthday to everyone born under the sign of Aquarius.
The full Moon on January 28th is in the sign of Leo at 9 degrees (2:16PM EST). Leo rules the performing arts, and many celebrities have some influence of Leo or an accented 5th house.
This is a time for those with Leo energies to shine. They can attract more abundance and romance. Creative energies are high and relationships with children runs more smoothly. The performing arts gets needed funding and more help.
Mercury turns retrograde on January 30th as mentioned earlier.
In closing, we are in a much better year, but it will still have its moments especially in the first 6 months of 2021. My prayers, chants, meditations go out to all of those who have lost life and those still fighting for their lives. Our healthcare workers are facing illness and death as never before.
My deepest thank you to those on the front lines. May our federal government take care of our healthcare workers and compensate them for their courage and compassion. We are so proud of you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you……….
