As January 1 marks yet another revolution around the sun, you may find that you're experiencing a period of personal growth. It's likely you'll be a bit burnt out from the holiday season, and will be looking for strategies to reinvest in yourself and evolve.
As Jupiter, Saturn, and then Mercury make their journey through Aquarius, you'll be actively seeking ways to implement change on both a micro and macro scale. This means a delicate balance between shadow work and ego, and you'll have to do the necessary work toward becoming better and walking your highest path. January 14 will be an especially transformative day for you, but that comes with its own pain, and you may be confronted with a hit to your ego. Any bumps in the road should be taken in stride on this day, because any challenges you face can only contribute to your personal evolution.
The sun enters Aquarius on January 20, giving your ego and your confidence a healthy dose of energy. After adjusting to the changes you've been making lately, you'll finally feel more like yourself again. People will naturally gravitate toward you during this time, and with your birthday coming up, you have no reason to feel guilty about being the center of the universe.
Your potential for growth is astronomical this year, so each time the universe throws you a lesson, take it in stride. Remember that every heartbreak comes with a story that shapes you, every mistake paves the road toward perseverance, and those lessons will never stop coming. Karma will be extremely present in 2021 as Saturn takes up residence under the sign of Aquarius, forcing you to grow.
This Saturn placement will also lend you an incredible amount of power, so don't hold back when it comes to attaining the things you want. You have a lot of strong planetary placements this year, and they can help you manifest your wildest dreams. Don't forget to ask the universe for help when you need it, and don't be afraid of your own success!
You may feel like you're doing a lot of soul work the first couple of weeks in January, which could lead you to close off a part of yourself in your relationships. It's likely that you'll be questioning whether or not you're happy with your current relationship status. If you're single, this would be a good time to look at previous romantic connections to analyze what you've historically been attracted to.
A new relationship paradigm is evolving, and as an Aquarius zodiac sign—you're on the cutting edge. It's all about loving and feeling complete within yourself. This way, if and when you choose to be with someone, it's because you want to... not because you need to. Still, some people just don't get it. In their eyes, desiring more freedom and space makes you appear cold and unfeeling—which couldn't be further from the truth! You may want different things than others do, but you deserve to love and be loved on your own terms.
2020 was no joke, and while the world will continue to evolve and change throughout 2021, you'll practically be in the driver's seat. Aquarius is known as the sign of genius and evolution, a point that will be helpful to hold onto if things feel difficult for you during the year. Luckily, Jupiter will be hanging out in Aquarius for most of 2021, bringing you an abundance of luck and optimism.
Jupiter and Saturn will be hanging out in your sign all through 2021, Water Bearer, making this an extremely lucky year for you—but that luck will make perfect karmic sense. While Jupiter brings an abundance of luck that will take you to new heights in your career, social standing, and love life, you'll still need to make Saturn happy.
Saturn loves structures, rules, and responsibility, which isn't always your forte, but as long as you're the one making up the rules, there shouldn't be any problems. Use the first weeks in January to reflect on what your goals are, but don't feel pressured to make any sudden moves just yet.
