January Astrology 2021-Creation, Divine Presence, Motivation and New Beginnings

by | Dec 29, 2020

Welcome, January!

This new year, especially this new month, provides the opportunity to reflect and release the last year with ease and grace. We thank it for its wisdom and let go of the patterns we shed. As the year continues, you will begin to see the openings ahead that will lead you to victory. It may take some time to settle into the new flow that this month has to offer, so be patient with yourself while taking actions that your soul guides you to. Listening to your heart will be essential this year. Allow yourself to trust that all is truly working out for your greatest good and your destiny. There are some significant mental shifts this month, and some may trigger emotional stuff, but have faith not only in the Universe but also in yourself. Allow yourself to fully step into this new year as an upgraded version of yourself.

Take a deep breath. We are now in the new energy of 2021! There are many exciting things ahead this year, and although we have already had so much change in 2020, this year the perception of that change will change. This year may require an attitude of adventure, but it is your perception of that adventure that will help you discover the journey ahead. This month is just the start of a year that’s filled with wonder, joy, and blessings. 

Here are some other important things to be on the lookout for this month: 

January 2nd3rdQuadrantids Meteor Shower:
The Quadrantids is an above average shower, with up to 40 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from January 1st
5th. It peaks this year on the night of the 2nd and morning of the 3rd. The waning gibbous Moon will block out most of the faintest meteors this year. But if you are patient, you should still be able to catch a few good ones. The best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. 

January 13thNew Moon in Capricorn:
The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. This is a powerful New Moon to set your intentions for 2021, as you will have the determination of Capricorn on your side. 

January 15thMercury Retrograde Pre-Shadow and Retrograde in Aquarius:
The first Mercury retrograde of 2021 begins with the pre-shadow in Aquarius on January 15th, 2021. Mercury goes retrograde in Aquarius on January 30th. Here is more information about what to do during Mercury retrograde

January 28thFull Moon in Leo:
The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Wolf Moon because this was the time of year when hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps. This Moon has also been known as the Old Moon and the Moon after Yule. This is a great Full Moon to truly look at what you are passionate about and what brings you joy. If something in your life is no longer making you feel that way, if it feels right, allow yourself to release it and make room for new to come into your life. 

Remember to stay hydrated and to honor how you feel as your mind, body, and soul continue to up-level and integrate into a new frequency. Sometimes we can be afraid to be excited about something because of past disappointments. But I am here to tell you directly from Spirit that it is safe to be excited, so give yourself permission to experience the excitement that is rising up in your heart.
