The Aquarian Age Part I: Your January Horoscope

Happy New Year AirBrush Astro Lovers! And, welcome to January 2021, during which the sun will spend most of the month in the sign of Capricorn. This year kicks off astrologically with many planets in Aquarius. After the Great Conjunction on December 21, we have officially entered what might be called the “Aquarian Age”. For the next 20 years there will be a focus on Aquarian themes including technology, innovation, humanitarianism and information.

Let’s get into it…

The Aquarian age kicks off with Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury all entering Aquarius. There will be a heightened focus on unconventional ideas at the beginning of the month. This innovation will be challenged by forces that are inflexible and hesitancy to change with Mars in Taurus squaring all 3 planets in Aquarius on January 13. This tension will reach a crescendo on January 17 when Saturn squares Uranus on January 17. This aspect will catapult the parts of you that fear change the most in the name of transformation and growth.

In what part of your life will this transformation take place? Read the horoscopes below to find out. Make sure to read the forecast for your Rising Sign for a more accurate report.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Hey lively Aries! This month will be about work, friends and colleagues with the sun shining through your 10th house of career and a cluster of planets in Aquarius lighting up your 11th house of community. When Mars enters Taurus and squares this sector of your chart on January 13, be aware of impulsive or reactive outbursts with colleagues in a work context. We all lose our temper when we’re stressed at work but remember that you can’t take things back once they’re said. Be mindful of your communication around this time. Any tensions that may arise will reach a tipping point on January 17 when Saturn in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus in your 2nd house of money. Your reluctance to change the way you communicate in a group could put your finances at risk. Be open to changing your ways in the name of material security.

Hello lovely Taurus! This month will be all about exploration and new ideas in your career.

With Mars and Uranus in your 1st house of personality, your look and very personality might undergo a massive transformation this month. Let yourself be moved. Explore the new ideas coming to the fore and try not to let the changes cause you distress.

Other people will notice the shifts in your personality. You might also come off as impulsive, reactive and tempestuous to others. While it’s important to be mindful of making too sudden changes to your work life based on how differently you feel, don’t dig your heels into the status quo either. Follow your gut.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Hi adventurous Gemini! This month the sun will be shining through your 8th house of transformation and deep feelings putting you in a more reflective mood than usual. There will also be a focus on your 9th house of higher learning this month. Note changes to your school routine. If you’re a student there is likely to be shifts in the classroom that create more space for digital innovation and technology. This focus on digital learning could make you feel isolated and more lonely than usual with Mars and Uranus in your 12th house of isolation and spirituality. Emotions will be a focus this month, as will developing coping mechanisms that help you feel less alone. For an energetic, social sign like you, these traits will help you be more independent and courageous in the end.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Hello sweet Cancer. This first month of the the Aquarian age will be focused on relationships for you with the sun shining through your 7th house of partnerships. Notice how deep seated transformation and emotional shifts could be affecting your approach to your relationship. If you’re single, instead notice how your secretive, emotionally reclusive ways could be holding you back from opening up to a relationship. Careful with emotional flare ups with your friends this month with Mars and Uranus stirring tensions in your 11th house of community.

You could get into an unexpected verbal sparring match with a friend or colleague on January 13. Be mindful of acting out of fear or anger if you feel like your most vulnerable self is being exposed by an unsolicited opinion. By January 17th, you’ll be fully aware of the ways you need to change your communication with friends to get to the sweet, supportive dynamic you desire.

It’s the perfect energy to set New Year’s resolutions that stick! You will notice a different approach to your relationships than you’re used to that includes the use of technology and/or unconventional approaches. If you’re partnered, this could mean trying new things to spice up your relationship. If you’re single and looking, this could mean finally making the leap onto dating apps.

Don’t hesitate to try new things and step out of your comfort zone. Challenges in your career could arise on January 17th that force you to make sweeping changes. It seems that the impulse to change in your one-on-one relationships is catching on in other areas of your life! The theme of your month?
