Weekly Horoscope: January 24–January 30, 2021

January 24, 2021

The last week of January 2021 is surely going to be very busy for many. As we have some challenging aspects, it would be best to approach the days ahead with open-mindedness and flexibility, as the Universe will bring blessings more easily to us then.

January 26 will bring the first major aspect of the week with the fiery sun clashing in a square with electric Uranus. This will cause anxiety and tension, causing some people to elicit unpredictable behavior. Rapid changes in direction are likely, as well as a higher likelihood of outbursts, accidents, and unexpected events. Under this hectic energy, it’s best to understand your feelings and breathe through the shifts rather than further complicating situations.

A full moon in Leo arrives on the twenty-eighth. This lunation will overpower the week, as it will begin to be felt days prior and linger on into the beginning of the following one. As the goddess of the night breaks over the horizon and sings her swan song, we will be able to see how far we have come since the new moon in Leo six months ago. This is a time of culmination, assessment, and harvest. Turning points often happen at full moons, bringing news to our attention so we have a choice about how to proceed. Our creative, passionate, and romantic energy will be especially peaked, as the fire of zodiac sign Leo will simmer upon our skin. Embrace your authentic heart and express yourself boldly. 

On this same day, two other notable aspects will take place. Venus soars into Pluto, conjoining in a passionate ballroom dance. As these two heavenly titans embrace, we will demand our relationships move to a deeper and more intense level. A magnetic and hypnotic power will infuse us, especially those looking for love. Singles could find an instant attraction to a karmic connection; while couples can use this energy for profound soul and sexual experiences.

The glorious sun will also meet with Jupiter on the twenty-eighth, creating the luckiest day of the year. This aspect did not occur in 2020—as would seem obvious—and will not happen again for over a year. The radiant force of the sun amplifies Jupiter’s expansive luck. Miracles, breakthroughs, and blessings are sure to spill down upon us. As this happens opposite the full moon, this energy is exponentially increased! Today is the most fortunate day of the year to take a risk, set a meeting, go on a first date, or pursue your heart’s desires.

Yet, as we approach the end of the week, the pace of life is sure to feel as if it is slowing down. This is because the storm of Mercury retrograde will begin as early as the twenty-ninth. While our cosmic messenger will officially station retrograde on the thirtieth, we are likely to feel the confusing energy beforehand. Life—and our minds, projects, and communications—may likely feel frozen on this day. In the weeks ahead, we will review our progress since the middle of January. This is an opportunity to shift direction and improve our path forward. As always, avoid signing new contracts, launching new initiatives, or making major purchases until the end of February.
