Now that 2021 is finally before us we are facing January, the first month of the new year. This month is not one that we should be afraid of when it comes to the celestial world but more-so one we should celebrate. 

There is a lot going on in the celestial world when it comes to this month but none of it is overly bad. Honestly, it seems like the more time that passes the more positive this month will end up being. Astrologically there are quite a few things worth noting and well, to kick off the month we’re getting a heavy dose of inner strength and intuition.

On the 1st of January things get started with Mercury sextile Neptune, for those who do not know astrology king has broken down some of these energies as follows:

Mercury sextile Neptune transit is good for relaxation, creativity, communication, and spiritual pursuits. Your words become soothing and can actually be healing to others. All of your senses become acute, enabling you to pick up a lot of extra information through your intuition. You may even receive spiritual information through dreams, meditation, your spirit guide, or through chance encounters.

This would be a good time to do artwork or anything creative. You could write a romance or fantasy novel, but this transit is not so good for study or writing on technical subjects. You are more attuned to the larger picture and not focusing on intricate detail.

Relationships will benefit from your compassionate and spiritual nature. In fact, this would be a good time to learn more about astrology or other similar subjects. You should have vivid dreams and may even pick up a psychic impression when awake. If so, you can count on such spiritual information being fairly accurate.

Other good things to do under this influence include socializing, going to the theater or movies, listening to music, and generally relaxing.

As you can see this means we will all be more responsive to one another and working harder to make efforts where efforts need to be made. Overall we will be getting along more properly and really diving into the things that make us happy. This really sets a good mood for the month itself, right?

From there we will be facing a lot of smaller celestial events but one of the bigger ones that will be coming up would have to be the new moon. This new moon will be taking place on the 13th and be in the sign Capricorn. This new moon will be one full of growth and soul-searching. While that might not sound like much, it is very important. 

This new moon overall will be intense and bring a lot to the table. It holds a lot of aspects and will be bringing out tensions in places we might not be expecting. While it can help us to figure out where we want to go it can also knock us back off of our feet depending on how things are playing out in our lives. It’s a moon worth being aware of, that’s for sure.

Now, as the new moon energies get set in properly by the time the 18th rolls around Uranus will finally be going direct. This meaning the planet will no longer be retrograding. This planet has been retrograding since August 15th, 2020, and going direct means it will finally be letting go of the hold it has over restrictions and fear. 

Now, ending the month off there will be a full moon on the 28th and Mercury going retrograde on the 30th. While the full moon will be powerful, the retrograde is much more worth being aware of and keeping on your mind. When Mercury goes retrograde, things get crazy.

Astrology king wrote as follows going over Mercury’s retrograde:

Mercury retrograde 2020 begins on October 13 at 11° Scorpio and ends on November 3 at 25° Libra.

Mercury in retrograde motion is generally associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items. Mercury retrograde October 2020 makes your thinking intuitive, original, alternative, and experimental. It makes socializing exciting and enjoyable. Unexpected meetings with people from your past are also possible.

Mercury retrograde 2020 is good for learning occult subjects like astrology. Unexpected changes affecting plans, business deals, and travel may lead to exciting new opportunities. However, great care needs to be taken if involved in legal action, from October 16 new moon to November 15.

All in all January 2021 won’t be too terrible, but it won’t be the best month of the year that’s for sure. It’s going to be confusing and stressful but also worth putting our minds into properly. How will you make the most of the energies before you?
