Planetary Energies for January and the beginning of 2021

Updated: Jan 3

It's the beginning of 2021, we will all still be feeling the effects from the Cancer Full Moon on 30th December 2020 which was positively aspected by Uranus, the planet of surprise and unpredictability.



Things may have come to our awareness to finally be released. The Cancer energy may have had us going within to contemplate on how we can nurture ourselves, our emotions, our families or our homes. What is needed to feel emotional satisfaction, comfort and security?

New ideas and thoughts may be coming through on how to move forward in 2021 but first make sure we have a solid foundation before moving forward on the new path.


On the 13th January there is a New Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, the planet of powerful transformation, indicating this is quite a significant time. What intentions are you laying regarding structures you’d like to create or long-term goals you’d like to achieve in 2021?

We may have many new ideas since the Jupiter, Saturn Conjunction but also due to Mercury moving into Aquarius and then the Sun joining her. Our minds will be filled with fresh, independent, future oriented thoughts and ideas that can be initiated now.


A Full Moon in Leo on the 29th January will bring in an energy of creativity, fun and heart-based connections with others. Joy can be had by all and creative plans can be completed. However, it can also be a good time to release and heal feelings of needing excessive attention or praise from others which may have arisen due to low self-esteem. We can use this time to balance the energy of love of the self and love for others.



Mercury will begin its retrograde motion from the 30th of the month, which as usual, may cause all forms of communication, technology or travel to be problematic as we become more focused on internal matters rather than external matters while we go over things, redo, or contemplate before moving forward on our plans again. Remember to have patience and be forgiving of others at this time. Just be sure to double check any important contracts needing to be signed during a Mercury retrograde.
