Astrological monthly forecast for January 2021
Happy New Year and welcome to 2021!
The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius at the Solstice of December 21, 2020 will bring a tremendous flow of Aquarius energy to 2021, reinforcing the higher humanitarian ‘we” feeling and thus increasing resistance to the established power.
We are at the dawn of the Age of Aquarius, the transition from a patriarchal to a matriarchal era with better cooperation with the Earth and its resources.
A time in which our society and world view is definitely changing.
In 2021, we will finally be rid of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of early 2020, which has so changed the world all around. Since this planetary conjunction coincided with the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, we can only hope the worst is over.
The energizing forces of Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun in Aquarius from 9 to 31 January 2021, open the door of collective, social and humanistic consciousness.
Neptune in Pisces will continue to nurture the spiritual awakening in January 2021, infusing our souls with desires shaped by our dreams.
Revolutionary Uranus, astrological ruler of Aquarius, went retrograde from August 15, 2020 and resumes direct orbit around the Sun from January 14, 2021 at 6º43’3 in Taurus.
For the past five months, the revolutionary energies of retrograde Uranus have been directed inward.
Stability is more important than ever, because more energy will be released than we can handle.
The pent-up energy released both individually and collectively is huge, so repressed energy erupts on a personal and global scale.
In the coming months, we must anticipate sudden, unexpected events and revolutionary developments in our monetary system.
Beginning in mid-January 2021, the driving conjunction of Mars with Uranus in Taurus square Jupiter in Aquarius will lead to a volatile atmosphere.

In the run-up to the tension field of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius and still retrograde Uranus in Taurus in January 2021, the first week can be overwhelming and cause fear.
An unpredictable course forces you to maintain a tight schedule in order to use the available time efficiently.
From January 7, 2021, Mars travels through Taurus. Mars has to get used to this earth energy. Astrologically, Mars in Taurus is “in destruction,” so Taurus curbs the natural strength of Mars. Mars in Taurus not so fiery and fast like Aries own firepower, however more productive.
Whatever Mars in Aries started with last year is being built on in the Taurus era. Until March 4, 2021, we will therefore be dealing with a productive period characterized by determination, hard work, persistence, dedication, but unfortunately also possessiveness and urge to control.

With this planetary tension field, red warrior Mars challenges the great Jupiter to the limit.

Globally, it could get exciting in the third week of January 2021, when around January 20, 2021, the tension between Mars, the Black Moon and Uranus in Taurus with Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius bring the whole situation to a head.
From January 30, 2021 to February 20, 2021, Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius.
Mercury turns in the opposite direction during this period and during this period of reorganization and repair planning and agreements go wrong, there are delays and computers may crash.
During this cosmic “time-out” projects and ideas are revised giving room for Intellectual growth and self-reflection. During this retrograde Mercury period, there is more emotional distance and disagreements with friends, organizations and work groups.
Mercury retrograde is about everything that involves communication, all forms of transport, thinking, all kinds of everyday things, the network of which our entire world and society is a part.
Change is the only constant factor during this time.
From an individual point of view, we want to progress and evolve, even if it means changing jobs or relationships. Saturn is habit and Uranus is change, the unknown, the new, the daring, the future. In this uncertain period, it is often two steps forward and three steps back. Take your time, as the intuitive connection between Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn will point the right direction.
From an economic point of view, it will be very difficult to generate a restart for businesses and revitalize activities amid a process of restructuring, even after the Corona crisis has come to an end.

We are forced to find sustainable solutions for the future to improve our relationship with nature for now and future generations. However, the old capitalist system will continue to resist and therefore good solutions are not implemented or implemented too late.

Jupiter in Aquarius is our planetary patch in this climate of uncertainty.
In the summer of 2021, Jupiter will visit Pisces for a while, so in June and July 2021, an atmosphere of benevolence arises in which tensions flow away and solutions are found.
From the beginning of February 2021, the dust will settle and we will see the results of the energetic shift resulting from the six Eclipses of 2020.

Wishing you all a safe January 2021!
