january 2021 planetary overview

6th January: Mars enters Taurus

You have more energy at your disposal for work and money-making projects. Your goal is long-term satisfaction. „Happiness is not a goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived“ (Eleanor Roosevelt)


8th January: Mercury enters Aquarius

Mercury encourages original thinking and remembers us that rules are made to be broken. Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void but out of chaos. (Mary Shelly)


8th January: Venus enters Capricorn

You become more pragmatic and you try to build relationships with powerful people. „To be a saint or a man of too good a nature in today’s pragmatic world, with everyone out to get the other fellow, was equivalent to being a fool, wasn’t it?“ (Shūsaku Endō)

The New Moon in Capricorn is about establishing long term goals for your career. It is also about improving your public image. „The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing“. (Michael E. Gerber)

30th January: Mercury retrogrades in Aquarius

Mercury is retrograde until 21st February. Inventive thinking is at a peak. But take care what you invent! Alfred Nobel invented dynamite for digging tunnels, but it became a lethal weapon. Another advice for this transit: technology shouldn’t kill creativity, it has to enhance creativity. „No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination“ (Edward Hopper)
