A Note from Susan Miller
Often when we start a new year, the outer planets stay in their same positions, so the look and feel of the coming year stays fairly the same. That does not happen in 2021! Jupiter and Saturn decided to both enter Aquarius two days apart last month, to make lengthy stays. Gradually, other planets will migrate away from Capricorn and into Aquarius—something you will see in February—and offer a lighter, breezier influence than what we have been used to.
The eclipses have moved away from Capricorn and Cancer too, into more mutable, flexible, and adaptable Gemini and Sagittarius. We will have three eclipse in those signs in 2021, and the start of in a new series, Taurus and Scorpio, when one arrives in Taurus this year. In 2020, we had a remarkable six eclipses (actually seven, if you count the December 25, 2019, eclipse that appeared one week before 2020), which means that the universe was asking us to make many sudden adjustments.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
As you prepare to start the new year on the right foot, you will likely be very focused on closing your current year-end financial ledgers. If you are out of work and fervently awaiting the next stimulus package, you are in luck because its recent approval falls within four days of December 29, the full moon in your second house of income. That doesn’t mean the money will arrive instantly—it will probably arrive at or just after the new moon January 12 as wiring the money takes time.
The December 29 full moon in Cancer, 9 degrees, was a positive one, for Uranus, the planet of surprise, was in sweet attitude to it. This suggests a windfall might have found its way to your bank account or soon will. However, there are lots of ways money could have arrived. A kind family member may have sent you a holiday check, or someone who owes you money may have finally paid you, hoping to end the year with a clean slate. Money went in and money went out, though, as it appears you were also paying as many people as possible.
January 9 might be a standout day, when Mars (traveling at 1 degree Taurus), together with Uranus (at 5 degrees Taurus) will send a message to Venus in your financial eighth house. You may suddenly hear that a one-time sum of money is heading to you—this news is likely to come out of the blue.
You may receive an additional bonus on this uncommon day, January 9, and it will come in the form of a strong hunch about a situation you are in that has puzzled you. You will not be able to shake this message—nor should you—for it will be sent to protect you. If your intuition gives you a strong message on January 9, you may want to follow it, even if you do not have enough data to confirm what it tells you. Intuition can be a strong guide when decisions must be made about ambiguous situations.
