MONTH OF January
Ready to slow down a little? At last, you can pace yourself and get back to bonding, nesting and tending to your ties. For many Scorpios, 2020 was a hectic time of multitasking. And while it was good to be busy and distracted from the harsh realities of the world whenever possible, Scorpios NEED restorative times of quiet and “doing nothing.”
In actuality, you’re not doing “nothing”—whether you realize it or not, you’re processing emotions and all the psychic information your famous radar picks up on. Being constantly busy makes it hard to stay balanced. So you’ll be happy to know that January’s stars emphasize home, family and plenty of time for self-care.
There will still be plenty of buzz until January 19, though, as the Sun rounds out a visit to Capricorn and your social, interactive third house. After that, you’ll probably want to power down, spend less time on your devices (whenever possible) and indulge in luxurious self-care.
With Mars and Uranus heating up your relationship sector, you’ll get by with a little help from your inner circle, and maybe add some solid new members to your crew. Just make sure you get everyone on the same page before Mercury turns retrograde on January 30, which could cause scrambled signals and unnecessary breakdowns. Back up your data and devices early in the month to avoid any of the usual Mercury mischief!
Week 1: January 1-10
Help is on the way
Have mundane matters taken over your life? Get ready to banish boredom and banality this week as intensifier Mars wraps up its extra-long trip through Aries and your administrative, wellness-focused sixth house.
Since June 27, you may have been dealing with lots of little details and possibly some health-related matters. Taming stress hasn’t been easy, and while you’ve been outright heroic with the way you’ve handled 2020’s many curveballs, it’s taken a toll.
Great news: You’re about to get some help around here! On Wednesday, January 6, Mars enters Taurus and your partnership house, intensifying your need for support. A key relationship could heat up, perhaps speeding toward “official” status, whether that’s in love or business. Other bonds could get testy, making it impossible to ignore where there’s an imbalanced give-and-take.
Overall, the energy around dynamic duos is earthy, sensual and deliberate—meaning Valentine’s Day this year could be especially fulfilling. On the business front, you may feel some pressure to make things rock-solid by signing on the dotted line. There’s no need to rush into something you’re unsure about, but by the same token, don’t overthink this and miss an opportunity. Balance is key.
Week 2: January 11-17
Pieces of you
So many people, so little time! This week, it feels like everyone and their mama wants a piece of you. Relationships and family are so powered up that finding time for yourself and your goals could seem impossible. Or you could be tending to issues on the home front, such as a move or renovation. Whatever the case, your personal life is extremely front and center.
Jupiter and Saturn are now in Aquarius for much of the year, putting emphasis on your domestic fourth house. If you haven’t taken your emotions seriously enough, that could suddenly feel mission critical. Establishing a base of security, both within yourself and with a solid financial nest egg, are top priorities for 2021.
Family members, particularly female ones, could play central roles in the coming weeks. Cultivate relationships with inspiring and confident women—and nurture someone who’s not as far along on their path as you are!
At the same time, partnerships take center stage as go-getter Mars and disruptor Uranus, both in Taurus, energize your seventh house of relationships. Family obligations could compete with an exciting business or romantic relationship, perhaps one that’s zooming quickly toward a more locked-in status.
It all begins on Wednesday, January 13, when Mclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” ars and Saturn get embroiled in a tense square, making you feel like you have one foot on the gas, the other on the brake. Under this tough aspect, a family member or close person could voice disapproval about an important decision you’re ready to make, especially if it involves a relationship.
Is their resistance rooted in fear—or is this a helpful reality check? Even if you don’t like the bluntness with which it’s delivered, it might make sense to slow down and consider their objections, if only to let YOU feel stronger in your choice. At the same time, Saturn rules boundaries, and it might be time to put up a few with any meddling relatives.
Hold off on making any binding decisions, though, because on Thursday, January 14, radical changemaker Uranus wakes up from a five-month nap in Taurus and your committed seventh house. A relationship could suddenly zoom toward official status…or you might take a complete detour and call an almost-finished agreement off. Any duo that feels less than dynamic won’t cut it, especially if you feel the other person is limiting you in any way. Uranus wants freedom of expression and room to roam—and that’s one item you can’t compromise on now!
Speak your truth, Scorpio, because today is also the annual conjunction (meetup) of the bold Sun and your ruler, transformational Pluto. As this pair unites in your third house of communication and ideas, you could confidently express an idea that you’ve been keeping inside or just haven’t found the words to articulate. It’s a powerful day for pitching, so if you’re at that stage, whittle down your most important talking points and take the mic. Less is more—you don’t have to overexplain. Just let your power resonate with each simple statement and watch as people take notice.
On Sunday, January 17, all relationships could feel confining and claustrophobic, tempting you to make an abrupt jailbreak. Blame it on a once-every-seven-years square between independent Jupiter and liberated Uranus. As these freedom-seeking planets face off in your family and relationship houses, you could feel overwhelmed by all the people who want your time, care and attention. As much as you love them, you need some breathing room! Take an emergency time-out and devote the day to your own pursuits.
Once you’ve gotten that space, think about ways that you can empower your loved ones to fend for themselves. If you’ve gotten caught up in caretaking, it’s time to pass that baton to someone else—or, if the person you’re tending to is a full-grown adult, to break the codependent chain. Are you the one relying too heavily on others before making important decisions—or even basic ones? Let this Jupiter-Uranus square be your wakeup call, however jarring, that it’s time to become a bit more self-sufficient.
Week 3: January 18-24
Focus on home and firming your foundation
Nesting season is officially here! This Tuesday, January 19, the Sun shifts gears into Aquarius, heating up your domestic fourth house until February 18. With Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn all gathered here, your household will be a hub of activity—yes, more than it already is.
Even if you didn’t do much for the holidays, an internal reset is always a good idea for Scorpios. During this reflective month, get back in tune with your body and soul through self-care, and work on fortifying your emotional foundation through meditation and more quiet moments. If you’re looking to redecorate or changeclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” the energy under your roof (check out our Home Reset course for Feng Shui ideas at https://astrostyle.com/homereset), break out the paint swatches and Pinterest boards. Your mother or a female relative could play a key role over the next few weeks.
Relationships also heat up midweek, and they could move faster than you expect. This Wednesday, January 20, intense Mars conjuncts changemaker Uranus in Taurus and your partnership zone. Whoosh! Someone close to you could deliver curveball news. You might get an unexpected proposal to move toward official status.
But since Mars and Uranus HATE being caged in, this midweek meetup could also bring a sudden split. The urge to free yourself might strike out of nowhere, and anyone smothering you could get the sudden heave-ho. Be careful not to act on raw emotion or anger, though. Under this rash conjunction, any hard-to-reverse moves are not advised. Instead of breaking up, you could also just take a time-out and go take a much-needed solo adventure for a few days. If you still feel the same after a cooldown, you can proceed accordingly.
On Saturday, January 23, you may feel pulled in two different directions—strongly—as Mars squares off against expansive Jupiter in your fourth house of home, family and feelings. The intense demands of a fast-moving relationship could be at odds with some of your personal needs. Maybe you’re thinking about moving or changing your lifestyle, and that makes it hard to commit to any offers, both in love and business.
With sobering Saturn making its annual conjunction to the Sun that same day, you’d be wise to slow down and do some serious reflection first. A Sun-Saturn alliance can bring out our skeptical and pessimistic sides (so beware), but at best they operate as checkpoints, forcing us to look at the potential downside of a situation. Maybe you raced too quickly into something or opened up before trust was fully established.
If you’re pondering a relocation, you might need to pause and really consider the options. For example, do you want to move, and if so, should you buy or rent? Take the time to do thorough research (and soul-searching), and you’ll feel so much more confident in your decisions. If you DO need a day off from a certain someone, this would be the weekend to take it!
Week 4: January 25-31
Home wasn’t built in a day
Home-based action peaks this week as four planets root into Aquarius and your domestic, emotional fourth house. The Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn are all in this sociable sign, making your personal life a hive of activity—which is both exciting and stressful. Suddenly it might seem like you have a million household projects or that every relative is coming out of the woodwork needing your advice and support. Give them all a moment of your famous laser focus, letting them know their needs and issues have been heard, but make it clear that you have a lot going on yourself!
On Tuesday, January 26, the Aquarius Sun will square off against disruptor Uranus in Taurus, echoing the tension of the January 17 Jupiter-Uranus square. With the Sun in your family zone and Uranus in your relationship house, there may be stress between your loved ones and your love life. You might be feeling indecisive about a relationship or uncertain where you stand, and that could leave you feeling ungrounded. Maybe a relative voices disapproval of your personal choices. Remember, Scorpio: You don’t HAVE to take it personally.
Perhaps the people you count on as your go-to supporters are acting flaky and unreliable. Do you confront them? Under a thin-skinned and reactive Sun-Uranus square, egos and tempers run high. You may need to push back on someone’s unreasonable demands. Tap into your Scorpio gifts of insight and direct communication—and make any unpleasant moments as brief, compassionate and undramatic as possible.
The best day to clarify boundaries and realign with your biggest goals arrives this Thursday, January 28, when the first full moon of 2021 lands in bold Leo and your tenth house of leadership, career and success. Step into your authority, Scorpio! You’ll be able to clearly see and delineate some of your longer-term goals now—and it will feel so good to prioritize.
A venture or milestone you’ve been working toward since the August 18 Leo new moon could come together now with a flourish. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to ask for a raise, pitch a client or influencer or even apply for a new position, this full moon opens the windows of opportunity.
Even better? Today, the Sun will conjunct expansive Jupiter in their once-a-year meetup, known as the Day of Miracles and considered by astrologers to be one of the luckiest days of the year. As these two luminaries connect in Aquarius and your fourth house of foundations, you could manifest the emotional support you need to really go after your massive mission.
A family member could act as a guardian angel (maybe even an angel investor). If you’re looking to buy or sell a home or to relocate, watch for signs today…and follow this divine guidance.
With Mercury spinning backward, watch for moodiness and sudden bouts of insecurity. Can you avoid taking things personally? Since retrograde Mercury is famous for throwing curveballs, you may need to replace a home appliance or two. Mercury and Aquarius are both gadget-oriented, and you’ll want to make sure your electronics are surge-protected. Repair any leaks right away (such as a running toilet tank or dripping faucet) that could turn into bigger plumbing problems down the class=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” road.
While you’re in fix-it mode, you may feel the need to change the energy in your home. Check out our Home Reset course that combines Feng Shui and astrology: https://astrostyle.com/homereset. A few simple changes to your layout could get the flow back into your space.
LOVE & ROMANCE:
At last, a little pleasure! If love has felt like an effort—or the chores of day-to-day life have left you too tired or distracted for romance—that’s all about to change. Since June 27, 2020, passionate Mars has been in a decidedly NOT sexy part of your chart as he took an extended trip through Aries and your sixth house of labor, wellness and service. Responsibilities, pandemic, scrambling for work: not exactly come-hither words, least of all in the sultry Scorpio lexicon.
But that all changes this month. From January 6 to March 3, Mars will march through Taurus and your seventh house of committed relationships, turning up the temps in your closest ties. A new connection can quickly move toward official status. Single Scorpios could meet someone with long-term potential when you least expect it.
Attached? This is a time for solidifying any areas that are even slightly wobbly, especially around home and family. At times, you might fight a little more, but with sexy Scorpio mediating, you’ll likely settle your differences in the bedroom. That said, try to keep your temper in check to avoid fanning the flames of any conflict.
Love has felt more serious ever since Venus went into Sagittarius on December 15, but on January 8, she relocates to Capricorn and your breezy, flirtatious third house. With this lighthearted new energy, you’ll be even more magnetic. Enjoy it for the rest of the month, especially on January 9, when a Venus-Mars trine could turn friends into lovers and remind lovers to be best friends again.
January 9: Venus-Mars trine
Bring on the lasting love! As affectionate Venus and passionate Mars harmonize in stable earth signs, you could have true romance with all the trimmings—sensuality and stability. Skip the “come here now go away” players and their mixed messages. A partner who makes you feel secure is suddenly the most attractive catch in town. Coupled? Mark a long-term relationship with a thoughtful gift to let your mate know how much you cherish them.
