Weekly Horoscope: January 3–January 9, 2021

January 3, 2021

This week’s astrological weather will be quite a whirlwind, so get ready for the new year to start off with a bang!

January 4 will bring Mercury and Pluto into a conjunction in Capricorn. This will add intensity and psychological awareness to our thoughts and communications. Utilize this strong vibration to probe to the heart of matters and do deep analysis. With them meeting in Capricorn, this will especially help career and business matters.

For nearly six months, powerhouse Mars has been searing through the terrain of Aries. However, on the sixth, he will stampede into the fields of Taurus until March 3. This will make us especially determined, hardworking, and focused on our long-term goals and plans. We will have a patient strength at this time. While we could become a bit more stubborn, we can certainly make a lot of progress during these times. Mars is within its detriment in Taurus as its very aggressive nature is antithetical to the passive Bull.

January 8 brings a great deal of activity as Mercury and Venus both switch signs. Mercury will enter Aquarius, where he will stay for quite some time, as he will go retrograde in this same area of the sky throughout February. When our cosmic messenger is here, our minds will be attracted to new ideas, fresh perspectives, and planning for the future.

An optimistic and social vibration may also become more apparent. Venus scales the mountains of Capricorn now until February 1. This transit enhances all professional and financial matters no matter one’s zodiac sign. Connections with business associates can improve at this time. Creative talents can also be enhanced. When it comes to relationships, a sensual rapport will manifest and we will be drawn to long-term connections. Singles should look for someone who is stable, reliable, and trustworthy rather than only out for a fling.

The sun in Capricorn will sextile Neptune on January 8, as well. This is not a highly active transit, as it focuses more on being soft, spiritual, and caring. This can benefit all relationships and bring a touch of sensitivity to our hearts. Mercury in Aquarius will clash in a square with Mars in Taurus though, which shows that our minds may be out of touch with our hearts at this time. This sharp alignment can create short tempers, arguments, and impulsive decisions. It’s best to manage this influence and lean into the more compassionate one rather than being stubborn and fixed in our opinions.

January 9 will bring Venus in Capricorn into a trine with Mars in Taurus. As the cosmic lovers dance within the heavens, all romantic unions will benefit. This is a magnificent time to date whether single or attached. Be sure to plan something special! Despite this lovely influence, though, Mercury will bring the mood down today yet again as he meets with Saturn in Aquarius. This can manifest heavy thoughts, depression, or difficulties in communicating. To balance these energies, find some to concentrate on some mental work before letting loose to have some fun.
