Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs January 4th 2021
By our astrologer Elena
Move towards something bigger for ‘21
Rise above negativity
Get ready for a big influence
Hit the ground running when it comes to those New Year’s resolutions around your ambitions, career and work, Aries. Mercury meets Pluto in your status setting 10th which could bring news or an indication of where you’re heading for the Now Age.
You not only know exactly what you want, but are broadcasting a sexy surety when it comes to going after it. Ruler Mars sets your money house afire when it enters here on the 6th. This isn’t just about your cash, income or pursuit of all this, but also about your values too. Especially how you value yourself. Don’t be afraid to stand by these if someone questions them. The bottom line is they may be motivated by envy.
Mercury arrives in your Now Age 11th on the 8th and squares Mars on the 9th. Sure, someone may try to sabotage that self-assurance, but they won’t succeed. Venus in your 10th also from the 8th has you not only rising above it, but handling it with class and diplomacy in a way that just makes the other party look ungracious and petty. Because the same day Mercury squares Mars, Venus will trine it. Just dip you in chocolate and call you a Godiva truffle. The same can’t be said for anyone who gets on your wrong side this week. That brown stuff sticking to them is something else entirely.
The Mercury/Saturn conjunction of the 10th could see you hearing from a very different kind of connection. One that could have a big influence on the cycle ahead. Watch who you hear from or connect to now. Your path and theirs could be heading in the same direction for the Now Age.
In a nutshell: Claim your part of the Now Age and make it yours, Aries! Ruler Mars sends you off in hot pursuit this week while Venus raises your career stock. Hit the ground running when it comes to those New Year ambitions.

You’re seeking that compromise.
Singles could see that flirtation spark fanned pretty quickly. The 10th brings the first meeting between Mercury and Saturn in your 4th for the Now Age. Long term property decisions, lifestyle choices or even career plans can be agreed. You may put your name on something important. Could even be someone’s heart this week, Scorpio.

Focus on the things that matter most
Love what you have to have more to love
Put your energy into relating
Work, money, wellbeing. Let’s focus on the relationship aspect of these Sag. Rather than what you may have in your bank account or stuffed under your mattress. Because its all about how you relate to what you have rather than the amount.
You’re going to be looking at what matters most as Mercury meets Pluto in your money zone on the 5th. Venus rules this house in your chart and lands in here on the 8th. It’s a very different place than what it has been for the past two years or so. Pluto is the only remaining slow moving planet in here. As Mercury meets it on the 5th this is a great day for work, business and money-making activities. But it is also a great time to be letting others know what really matters to you.
What’s your most valuable resource?
Chances are this could be another resource entirely. Such as your time. There is no point in working to make money if you don’t have the time to do the things you love. Mars in your 6th gives you an energy boost – hence the wellbeing aspect of the week. But it also has you allocating your time which is after all, a finite resource, on the things that matter.
Where you put your energy will therefore be increasingly important now as Mercury now in its ruling 3rd squares Mars on the 9th. The same day will see Venus trine Mars. Relating to your talents, time and other resources is your key to having more of what you can value. Mercury’s meeting with Saturn in your Now Age 3rd on the 10th tells you that from now on, you’ve a new and different set of priorities. Ones that work a whole lot better and which you can relate to for the long term.
In a nutshell: What do you value the most, Sag? Chances are it’s more than money can buy you. Like time for who and what you love. Direct your energy into getting more of what matters this week. You’ll carve out a richer future if you do.
Time for some outstanding moves
Get ready for a new impression
Make 2021 your time to shine
You may want to show the world how you are expressing the change in the planetary weather in your sign, Capricorn. You should feel lighter, brighter, freer. As if a weight has been lifted. Mercury conjunct Pluto in your 1st is all about communicating this. In any way you choose. Your visual message, branding, look and how you convey this.
Out of the backroom and into the spotlight
Venus arrives on the 8th so you may treat yourself to some Now Age indulgences that allow you to look how you are now feeling. Mars is in your fabulizing 5th from the 6th. Mars in here hands you heat, passion and above all, confidence. You now want to stand out, to be seen and admired. It’s about time, Capricorn. Especially if the past few years have left you feeling you’ve been doing heavy-lifting in a backroom.
Time to shine again and make the effort to do so as Mercury will square Mars from your 2nd on the 9th while Venus trines it the same day. What is this telling you? Yes, you ARE worth it.

Tie up loose ends
Take action on living space
Insight delivers answers
Before we can embrace the future, we need to tidy up the past. Are there still some loose ends you need to take care of, Aquarius?

Linking you to enhanced powers of imagination, creativity and psychic abilities. These could give you the heads up on how to deal with something once and for all. Or show you where the finishing touches need to take place.
Fly Free into the Now Age
After all, you don’t need any unfinished business as we are in the Now Age. You may begin with maters close to home thanks to Mars in your 4th from the 6th. Mars always needs to take action in this house. It needs a job to do. So, it could involve talking with those you live with, with tidying, renovating, decorating, gardening or even plans to move. It will square Mercury in your 1st on the 9th. The same day as Venus trines it from your 12th. Don’t put off what you know you need to do.
Actions you take set you up for living better and with more authenticity for the Now Age. Your decisions or actions will have lasting effect as Mercury meets Saturn in your 1st on the 10th. Time for change, Aquarius.
In a nutshell: With the Now Age well and truly underway, you don’t need ties to the past holding you back. So, tie up any remaining loose ends this week. Inspiration points to new ways of unhooking yourself from anything holding you back.
Time to put yourself first
If things don’t change they can’t improve
What you put off is easier than you think
Something long overdue demands your attention this week, Pisces. So, don’t procrastinate or sweep it under the carpet. Your gorgeous sensitivity often means you hesitate having that important conversation with someone or taking action. Mainly because you don’t want to upset them. But this week asks you to put your feelings first for once.
You’ll certainly know things cannot stay the same when Mercury meets Pluto on the 5th. Mars’ arrival in your 3rd from the 6th removes any hesitation around saying what you need to say. This is Mercury’s ruling house and it too is on the move this week. Landing in your 12th on the 8th. The same day as Venus arrives in your 11th. This puts your focus firmly on the future and how you want things to be.
The honest response if always the right one
Mercury will square Mars on the 9th. And Venus will trine it. What this adds up to is that tackling anything will not be as bad as you think. Some Pisceans may even hear from someone from their past. Or have someone in the present show a different side of themselves. No matter how you feel it is important to respond with soul honesty. If you have put others before your own needs, this week puts an end to that as Mercury meets Saturn in your 12th of the Now Age. You’re saying or doing what you need to this week. With lasting and better results than you imagined, Pisces.
In a nutshell: if you’ve been putting something off, now is the week to tackle it, Pisces. Time to see your needs as being just as important as those of others. Putting yourself first for once brings that much-needed improvement.
