Since Saturn and Jupiter got married at the first degree of Aquarius and teamed up for a new 800 year vision of expansion and infinite possibility on December 21, 2020, I have been crashing and burning in every which way. Aquarius is the sign of genius, technology, and invention. Yet, I have been experiencing major glitches and creative burnout. I wonder as to where and why this inventive streak of magic has been hiding? Today, I say bring all it on with all of its quirks and imperfections. We can make the magic happen.
Saturn and Jupiter meet up every twenty years in the sky and usher in a societal era. On both the individual and collective level, they herald a major new beginning and structure. Saturn is the structure, and Jupiter is the vision. What do you want that vision to be for you? What do you want to manifest and begin in your life?
In the past year, I have talked to so many people that wanted to take a whole direction in their lives and felt that last year’s crisis led them to an existential place of determining what is of value in their lives and taking a chance to pursue it. Think of the Fool Card in Tarot. There are so many directions and paths that you may not yet have taken.
Think of the Magician card, and the ability to magnetize what you want through your skills and intellect. This is where we’re at right now, and there are many different doors to open; although, some are sadly permanently closed.
A friend of mine always reminds me that when she studied Astrology in the sixties, her teacher would always say to his students that the stars impel; they do not compel. The Aquarian age embodies excitement, awakening, surprise, chaos, and brilliance.
Let this illuminating energy lead you in exhilarating new directions to learn, connect, and change. Fixed change is on the menu, and it’s at half price. Some places have it for free, but the results are priceless.
In this epoch of Capricorn in 2020, we saw so many structures in our lives break down, end, die, and exit. Much mass karma, loss, restructuring, and rebirth. The world is experiencing mass PTSD, as it has been through a massive Pluto transit of death and regeneration on the global level.
If any of you has experienced a major Pluto transit, you know it does not complete the minute it is done. Sometimes, it takes years to make sense of what you have experienced. Sometimes, it takes a lifetime.
Now we are in the Real Age of Aquarius, as Saturn and Jupiter have opened the doors to infinite possibility in an intellectual amusement park. If you are open to the unexpected, you will have a blast. If you are scared of the cyclone ride, you better take some ashwaganda or whatever tempers your fears. Fear of change will be your worst opponent in this Age of Aquarius.
Intellectual curiosity and the ability to connect and reconnect will be your best allies. With all of that said, let’s get to the core of what this month looks like. We begin the month with Saturn and Jupiter newly in the fixed air sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign centered on community, groups, enlightenment, networking, social media, technology, and science. There will be a technological and an intellectual revolution in the next couple of years, as Saturn will tour in Aquarius through March 7, 2023.
Mercury entered the Aquarius on January 8, 2020, and it will transit in Aquarius through March 15, 2020. It retrogrades on January 30, 2020 at 26 degrees of Aquarius, which gives us all a preview of Saturn’s journey through Aquarius — minus three degrees, which accounts for the last few weeks of its tour in Aquarius. Pay attention to the stories that come up in the next couple of months with Mercury in Aquarius. A lot of exciting and unexpected news, ideas, and brainstorming ahead!
Saturn and Jupiter’s partnership in Aquarius want us all to connect! The stars don’t compel, but they impel us to be social beings again in this Real Age of Aquarius. There are infinite possibilities to revive existing partnerships and businesses and to form new friendships, relationships, and businesses with this infinite ingenuity.
That does not detract from the connections we have, but some will end. Saturn in Aquarius means that your tribe may not be the existing one, and you may find that you resonate with a different crowd. You may also choose to recommit to friendships and relationships that have real meaning and make more time to nurture those connections.
Jupiter and Mercury meet up at five degrees of Aquarius on January 11, 2021 at 12:29 pm EST and encourage us to reinvent ourselves with a new vision in 2021, as we mourn and rebuild. This is an auspicious pairing, and it means to me that there is hope in the chaos. The two form a helpful aspect to Chiron, the wounded healer. Pitch ideas, launch marketing plans, schedule appointments, journal, and manifest!
Mercury squares Uranus, the planet of disorder and inspiration on January 12, 2021 at 10:00 am EST at six degrees of Aquarius and Taurus. This adds to the Uranian energy that is so potent in the month of January. This is a brilliant combination, but you can feel like you writing a final on ten cups of coffee with ten different windows open on your computer, as you write your opus. So much information getting revealed this week in surprising ways. So much anxiety, so make sure to find ways to ground yourself.
The first new moon of the year in this Aquarian age occurs on January 13, 2021 at 12:00 am EST at 23 degrees and 13 minutes of the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. This speaks back to the unforgettable Saturn/Pluto conjunction that occurred on January 12, 2021. This is a very manifesting time with Jupiter joining up with Mercury; but, the reality is that this New Moon also meets up with Pluto and brings more closure and endings with last year’s heavy loss.
The moon is out-of-bounds, which means that people’s emotions are much more extreme, and this New Moon will initiate new beginnings mixed in with release. There is a sense of mourning inherent in this New moon that is perceptible. It is also time for us to tap into the Aquarian magic we so desperately need.
The New Moon is an excellent time to set intentions, journal, and say affirmations out loud. If you have a red envelope or a red marker, write down you intentions in red or put them in a red envelope, and this adds good fortune to your dreams. This week will prove to be rocky, and you have to go with the flow. Mars fights with Saturn on January 13, 2021 at 6:02 am EST, and this puts the brakes on a lot of plans and can feel really frustrating.
The New moon energy is looming with new intentions and ideas; but, whatever you expect this week and month to be, the universe will have other ideas as well. Keep manifesting and thinking of the future!
The bigger deal of the week is that Uranus, which is the modern ruler of Aquarius, stations direct on January 14, 2021 at 6 degrees of the fixed earth sign of Taurus. Taurus does not like change, and Uranus insists on it! We feel the buildup five days before and five days after. A lot of twists and turns. A lot of change, unexpected news, and madness. Tap into the brilliance! Create the magic!
We will also feel the buildup of Jupiter squaring Uranus, which occurs exactly on January 17, 2021. Jupiter is the luckiest planet, and it expands whatever it meets. In this case, Jupiter expands the brilliance, chaos, and surprises. It expands this whole new age of Aquarius. This week has an incredible intensity, but there is so much excitement in embracing new beginnings and having the courage to be yourself!
The New Moon is an excellent day to do the Law of Abundance. Take a blank check or print one from the internet and date it for your time zone — 1/12/21 at 9:00 pm PST and 1/13/21 at 12:00 am EST. Adjust to your time zone. Put the date and year at top. Where it says, “Pay to the order of, ” print your full name. Keep the small numeric box blank. Where you normally print the amount, print, “Paid in Full.” At the bottom of the check, where you normally sign your name, print, “The Law of Abundance.” And so it is!
