The year is already off to a wild start, and an unpredictable transit on January 17 might add fuel to the fire. That’s when Jupiter, the Planet of Luck and Abundance, will square with Uranus, the Planet of Freedom and Rebellion. This clash last happened in 2014, and when these two planets come together it often aligns with life-changing breakthroughs… or eruptive protests. Are you ready for it? At the time of this square, Jupiter will be in Aquarius and Uranus will be in Taurus, says Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com. “Uranus’s job is to bring change by shaking up the status quo,” she explains. “The planet’s transits are usually intense and unpredictable.” Those words describe the first month of 2021 to a T. But this specific square may offer an opportunity for a change in our energy, says astrologer Lisa Stardust. “We’ll feel overly optimistic and want to break through the constraints that hold us back,” she says. “Embracing our new mindset will open us up to amazing possibilities.” If 2020 was the year of, like, realizing things — à la Kylie Jenner — then 2021 is shaping up to be the year of putting some action behind those realizations. The I-want-to-change-the-world energy here is explosive. “The square Jupiter forms with Uranus is important because it will magnify what Uranus is doing — which is bringing an enormous amount of change into our society and the way we relate to government and authority,” says Montúfar. “Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system, and it expands everything that it touches.” The urge to change broken systems will be impossible to ignore. While Jupiter squaring Uranus means drastic change for the collective, on a personal level we’ll be feeling the need to break free from what’s been holding us back. “If we’ve been feeling like a job, relationship, or situation is trapping us, the tension coming from the square might push us to act,” Montúfar says. This transit will affect everyone, but since it’s in a mixed square, if you’re a fixed sign — Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius — it’ll hit you especially hard. Each of those four signs will notice tension in a certain area: Leo and Taurus in their work lives; Scorpio in their love lives; and Aquarius in their home lives. But, adds Montúfar, “While freedom is the ultimate goal, the presence of Mars in this configuration could make us do something that we might later regret.” The energy of this transit may have us trying to claw our way out of the constraints we feel that we’re in, but we must think things through and create a plan before acting. In other words, don’t quit your job on a whim without something else lined up. The word of 2021 should be intention. Leslie Hale, psychic astrologer at Keen.com, says that this is a true “gambler’s transit,” meaning it can go either way in terms of incredible breakthroughs or a disappointing loss. But Montúfar stresses that slow and steady wins the race: “Under this aspect, we can really manifest the autonomy we need and deserve, as long as we’re strategic at creating this new reality for ourselves.” Like what you see?

NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 28 : A bodega worker restocks produce on April 28, 2020 in the Brooklyn borough in New York City. Workers at bodegas are considered essential where in some areas 80 percent of the food is purchased, according to a report put out by New York City. (Photo by Stephanie Keith/Getty Images) Andrew Yang’s mayoral campaign, which just began this week, is already off to an interesting start. Moments after announcing that he hopes to become New York’s next mayor, he explained that he doesn’t live in the city full-time, because “can you imagine trying to have two kids on virtual school in a two-bedroom apartment and then trying to do work yourself?” That was strike one: many New York City parents immediately pointed out on Twitter that they can and do manage this. Now, the internet is once again imploring Yang to drop out of the race for sharing another egregious New York take online. This one is debatably even more personal: it’s about bodegas. On Friday, Yang shared an odd video that is, ostensibly, a tribute of sorts to the staple New York institution. “New York City loves its bodegas!” he wrote. “The 14,000 bodegas are vital to our city — let’s support them and keep them open.” Somehow making the situation even worse, he punctuated the tweet with a Statue of Liberty emoji. In the video, Yang, who appears to be in a very upscale boutique grocery store, picks up two bottles of iced tea and elbows someone hidden from the camera. “How you doing, bro?” he asks. He proceeds to muse over some bananas, decide to purchase four, and pay for his items while discussing his love for bodegas. “Can you imagine a New York City without bodegas?” he says, turning towards the camera. “I can’t imagine. Let’s not have to.” New York City loves its bodegas! The 14,000 bodegas are vital to our city – let’s support them and keep them open. 👍❤️🗽 pic.twitter.com/pGb24IerGz— Andrew Yang🧢🗽🇺🇸 (@AndrewYang) January 15, 2021 There is a lot to unpack here, from Yang’s odd meal choice to the cringey dialogue. But the biggest source of discussion is the location, which appears to be… a midtown deli? A small supermarket? A New York equivalent to LA’s infamous Erewhon? Many people have cited its high-quality lighting, wide aisles, and stocked shelves as evidence that Yang is not at a real bodega. Obviously, there is also no cat in sight. Obviously products are lined on shelves in a sensible, easy-to-find way. This is not a bodega. The video immediately spawned memes, jokes, and annoyance. Several users on Twitter shared images of their own “favorite bodegas,” including Target, Costco, and 7-Eleven. brb hitting up my local bodega pic.twitter.com/Gm643MzUxA— Greg Price (@greg_price11) January 15, 2021 Just entering my favorite bodega to pick up a few things and support small business. #NewYangCity pic.twitter.com/a2MNA1v6Sc— combination pandemic hut & tacoup bell (@darbehoneyriver) January 15, 2021 This is the “Bodega” he’s talking about 😂 pic.twitter.com/kIU7R2MTiE— Liza 🇺🇸🇵🇷 (@lilmissarcasm) January 15, 2021 But this isn’t the first time “bodega” has been a trending subject. In fact, the discourse around bodegas seems to bubble up every few months. Just last month, writer Alison Leiby went viral when she asked non-New Yorkers where they purchase supposed bodega staples like paper towels, Diet Cokes, and M&Ms. Although the tweet was intended to be a joke about impulse purchases, people outside of the city criticized Leiby for sounding pretentious and clueless. People in the city questioned whether she really understands what makes bodegas special. And people everywhere noted that you can find all three of those items at any grocery store or Walgreens. In response to the backlash, Yang simply wrote, “Haha I love New York.” (I guess in an attempt to appear in on the joke?) Depending on who you ask, the internet might have helped Yang’s presidential campaign, but this is New York. He’s going to have to switch tactics. Like what you see?

WILMINGTON, DELAWARE – NOVEMBER 07: President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris take the stage at the Chase Center to address the nation November 07, 2020 in Wilmington, Delaware. After four days of counting the high volume of mail-in ballots in key battleground states due to the coronavirus pandemic, the race was called for Biden after a contentious election battle against incumbent Republican President Donald Trump. (Photo by Andrew Harnik-Pool/Getty Images) In the aftermath of the attack on the Capitol, tensions are high and many are concerned that the events on January 6 are a sign of what’s to come later this month when president-elect Joe Biden is sworn in. Already, there are discussions on far-right forums of demonstrations and possible violence in the days leading up to January 20. And it’s not just in Washington D.C.: according to an FBI bulletin warning, armed protests are being planned in all 50 state capitols. With all of this risk and unrest, not to mention a pandemic that is setting record daily death toll numbers, many are now pleading for an all-virtual inauguration. Twitter has been flooded with requests from citizens and government officials alike to reexamine inauguration plans. Some are petitioning for no in-person events as a means of protecting everyone causing the hashtag #virtualinauguration to begin trending. Others, like Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser are simply asking for increased caution. Over the weekend, Bowser strongly encouraged the Department of Homeland Security to rethink its approach to the inauguration. In a tweet, Bowser shared the letter she sent to acting secretary Chad Wolf outlining a host of changes from extending the use of special security to requesting the FBI provide daily intelligence and threat briefings from now through January 24. In any other election year, thousands of people would gather on the National Mall while the new president takes the oath of office, followed by a parade with thousands of military personnel. Then, an annual inaugural ball would take place. But not this year. Biden intends to start his inauguration day by taking the train from his home in Wilmington, DE to Washington D.C., CNN reports. He will still take the oath at the Capitol, but he will instead be accompanied by socially distanced members of the military. And in place of a traditional parade, there is supposed to be a virtual one, with performances from communities across the country. The planned events will be televised as officials continue to discourage people from traveling to D.C. for the event. In keeping with tradition, former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton will join Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris at the Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier after they are sworn in. But this is all, currently, just a plan, which could change at any moment. Biden is still being asked whether he could further scale back inauguration plans after Trump supporters, spurred on by the words of the outgoing president, stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying the Electoral College votes to name Biden as the next president. On Monday night, Capitol Police briefed Democrats on three potentially violent plots planned in the coming days. One includes a plan to encircle the Capitol with talk of assassinating Democrats and some Republicans. According to Vox, Biden believes the show must go on. “I am not concerned with my safety, security, or the inauguration,” he told reporters on Wednesday. “I’m not concerned. The American people are going to stand up, stand up now. Enough is enough is enough.” Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?Trump Won't Attend Biden's Inauguration.
