Weekly Astrology Forecast: January 4 - 10, 2021

Did you know? There are three inner planets switching signs in this week’s astrology overview. Mars is entering Taurus, Mercury is entering Aquarius, and Venus is entering Capricorn. This will feel like an energetic adjustment and possibly confusing, but it will make waves for some exciting changes.

Be sure to check in each day to see what energy is leaving and arriving!

As we move away from the Full Moon and towards the New Moon next week, creativity is low, making it an inopportune time to start new projects.

Venus, the planet of love and attraction, moves into the Earth sign of Capricorn on Friday. Show your love by being on time, following through with plans, and being responsible, and people will really feel the love during this transit.

With the Sun also moving through Capricorn, anything that shows commitment and establishes the qualities of loyalty and longevity will be great to focus on to encourage growth in your relationships.

Booking a trip for the future, getting books about home renovation or parenting, talks about moving in, sharing finances, or even meeting the parents are all favored under this influence.

This week is also a fantastic time to get in touch with your spiritual side using the waning Moon.

You may not have the energy or clarity to go out in the world after what you want, so let yourself “go within” to clear out energetic debris to be productive. Healing your energy is very important in the manifesting process, so try to find ways to raise those vibes this week.
