Happy New Year and welcome to January 2021!
I think it is safe to say we are all glad to turn the page on 2020 and while 2021 still has its challenges (which we will be discussing on our Cosmic Coaching call on January 2) this year does allow us to begin the process of building the new from the ashes and rubble of the destruction of last year.
This month Jupiter and Saturn continue their dance after the Great Conjunction on the 2020 Winter Solstice. They are rarely a few degrees apart all month and as a result the energy from The Great Conjunction flavors the month ahead – hence the Soulstrology theme for January 2021 of Optimism and Opportunity. We are encouraged to have optimism this month in our lives and for the world, and to be open to new opportunities that will help us to progress on our path and indeed play a role in the healing and unification of humanity.
This month we will also still be feeling the energies of the last eclipse of 2020 which may trigger changes in our lives and that of the world at large. These eclipse energies may bring new opportunities our way which we had never even considered and with the current cosmic energies, almost instant manifestation and progression is possible this month.
Of course, there are some intense days ahead in January 2021 which you will note in the cosmic diary below, but remember that you can harness any intensity for productive change. As above, so below – but we are the co-creators of our realities and with cosmic consciousness we can truly bend the cosmic winds to our favor. One particularly tense day in January is the 20th – which happens to be the day of the US Presidential Inauguration and the very start of Aquarius season – meaning the Sun will be at zero degrees of Aquarius as Jupiter and Saturn were on the day of the Great Conjunction. While this lends further to the energies of a total reset – not just for America – but for the world at large – with Mars and Uranus conjunct this day (and Uranus having turned direct) there is an explosive, unpredictable, shocking energy that colors January 20. One can only hope it is the light of Mars and Uranus (dynamic leadership and progression) that colors this day versus the shadow (violent conflict and rebellion). It is mass consciousness which impacts our collective experience so we need to keep that in mind as the political twists and turns continue...
As you will note from the cosmic dates for your diary below, Mercury does turn retrograde this month in the first of his 2021 retrogrades in air signs. His first retrograde of 2021 is in Aquarius and offers us a wonderful opportunity to hone in on the Aquarius ruled parts of our lives which will see so much action over the next year or so. He turns retrograde as the month draws to an end, but his pesky pre-retrograde shadow begins mid-month. I will be writing a specific post on this and guiding you through the retrograde so you can harness the energies to your advantage. On the note of guidance, we are launching something new for our community this year which we hope will make your cosmic coaching journey a lot simpler and more effective. It comes in the form of the new downloadable Cosmic Coaching Worksheet. This is a monthly addition to your Membership guiding you to the exact movement of the luminaries and the planets in a simple document that you can notate to track your personal journey with the cosmos. We hope you enjoy!
I look forward to sharing downloads on the energies of the year ahead with you all this weekend via Zoom.
In the meantime, wishing you a wonderful start to this New Year.
May our optimism be met with magnificent opportunities - the kind that bring positive transformation to our lives, and the world.
Love, Ambi x
