This week’s astrology overview has two major, exciting events you simply cannot miss. A New Moon and a planet moving direct are both happening. What an expansive few days the planets have lined up for you!

First up is the January 2021 New Moon in Capricorn, which occurs this Wednesday.

The Sun and Moon are both going to be in earth-bound Capricorn, helping you get clear on the exact map you need to follow to reach your goals. Make sure to capture this energy and make a plan that you will stick to for the month and year to come.

Venus, the planet of love, is also in hardworking Capricorn, helping us with dedication and commitment.

On Thursday, Uranus moves direct in the Earth sign of Taurus, which makes us feel like doing our own thing regardless of what other people are doing.

If people seem to act out of character, emboldened by this planetary shift, give them the green light to let them express themselves. Inspiration will likely strike with the waxing Moon energy and Mercury and Jupiter, both in Aquarius, helping you expand your mind.

This is a heightened time for manifesting the career of your dreams, so work at it every day and stay in touch with what inspires you to come alive the most!

A New Year can feel daunting for many. If you’re looking for some insights, our Astrology Answers Advisors are highly skilled in many forms of divination to help you make the most of today, tomorrow, and your future.
