It’s the beginning of a brand new year and thanks to some positive celestial happenings, you’re feeling optimistic! 2021 kicks off with a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13, presenting you with an exciting opportunity to manifest your wildest dreams. Activating the area of your chart associated with your domestic realm, this New Moon invites you to revisit your domicile. Are you happy with your current habitat? If not, in which kind of environment would you prefer to dwell? This New Moon offers a gentle reminder that, in order to create a magical life, you need to feel comfortable on the home front. Don’t be afraid to clarify your intentions!

Next, on January 17, expansive Jupiter in Aquarius and innovative Uranus in Taurus form a powerful alignment known as a “square.” This is considered a “hard aspect,” which means tension fuels action under this sky. Usually, you want to help everyone, but after this cosmic event, you’ll know—once and for all—that you need to prioritize yourself. After all, how can you fill others’ cups if yours is totally empty? Propelled by Jupiter and Uranus, you’re finally ready to look out for number one…that’s you, Libra!

Your birthday season is long over—but do you feel like celebrating? Um, what’s the deal? Don't worry, you haven't lost all sense of time. When the Sun moves into Aquarius (a like-minded air sign) on January 19, you're in the mood to schmooze! For the next few weeks, you’ll be driven by curiosity. Don’t be afraid to explore new ways of socializing—you have cosmic permission to tap into your playful sensibilities. TL;DR: There's a virtual black-tie event with your name on it, Libra, so go ahead and RSVP!

The Full Moon in Leo lights up the sky on January 28, marking the climax of the 28-day lunar cycle. For you, your emotional realm is beginning to transform, shifting the way you relate to others and enabling you to be an even better friend than you already are. It may not be easy, but trust that this is a wonderful thing!

Finally, the month concludes on a somewhat irritating note: Mercury (the planet of communication) goes retrograde on January 30. Usually, you’re quite creative—but when Mercury starts moving backwards, what you thought was totally genius may prove to be deeply flawed. Try not to let it get you down, Libra! Retrograde motion is just a shift in perspective. In fact, by approaching your artistic pursuits from a different POV, you may end up with something even better than you originally envisioned. That’s the ticket!

Happy New Year! Treat yourself to some astro merch:
