January 2021 Horoscope
As we start a new year in the Age of Aquarius, many people are thrilled to be leaving 2020 behind and starting anew in 2021. And kicking off the year during a shifting era usually means big, shocking changes and new perspectives as a result of those changes.
Furthermore, in January, we start the year with the Quadrantids meteor shower, an annual event. This is a significant symbol of rising from the ashes and an invitation to bring new ideas into our lives. It is also a time of spiritual reflection and an opportunity to look at the world with a fresh, clear lens. With the turbulent changes of 2020 still making an impact, this meteor shower is an important event.
January is truly a month of hope. People are making resolutions, celebrating another year gone by, and examining their goals for the coming year and beyond. Although other events like Mercury retrograde at the end of January will continue to present us with challenges, we will charge through and take pride in being able to navigate change so rapidly. If 2020 has prepared the collective for anything, it’s the ability to be adaptable.
Keep reading to see what January has in store for your sign. We break it down into “houses,” which means the areas where you’re likely to see some action. And of course, check out your intuitively connected MONQ blend.

January 30, 2021: Mercury retrograde begins in Aquarius
Lucky you, Aries! After your ruling planet, Mars, spent six months in your first house, you had to work harder to achieve your goals. 2021 is already looking better than ever. The pressure of 2020 is gone. Make your social circle bigger. Enjoy yourself. You don’t have to always go through life like a freight train. Let loose and relax, even if just a little bit.
Connect with like-minded people this month and show off your generous side. If you are involved in a nonprofit, make a financial contribution. If you have always wanted to volunteer for a nonprofit, contact the one that you were thinking about. You will make new friends and experience an even deeper connection with your cause.
Your romantic life is on fire this month, Aries! You will make a connection with a friend that was unexpected, or you might supercharge a relationship you’re already in. You’re going to be feeling flirtatious, so use your charms wisely!
Try Bright in January, Aries. You’re going to be looking on the bright side!
Taurus the Bull: April 20 – May 20
That’s not your imagination, Taurus, your temper is flaring this month! But be careful: you don’t want to put a good relationship in jeopardy. When you tell someone how you really feel when Mercury retrograde begins, you will feel a sense of excitement and an intense thrill. The end result is up to you.
Your professional life is also amping up this month, so make sure you take time for your hobbies. Harness the energy you’re feeling, and you might even change your life for the better after making an impulsive decision. But don’t forget that you need to stay centered as well. Exercise, meditate, or take a long, hot bath. This will help you settle down and harness what you’re feeling.
Make sure that your resolutions are realistic, Taurus. Your quest for success and your sheer determination will lead you to set lofty goals that probably can’t be completed within one year. Don’t let this determination cause you to run out of steam early in the game.
Relieve is your blend this month. This will help you unwind when you need it.
Home is where the heart is, Gemini. At the beginning of the year, you will want to stay close to home. Mercury retrograde’s effects will immediately be felt, making small talk and friendly conversations feel like the kind of white noise you don’t want to hear. This a test of how well you are handling the transition into the new year.
Around the new moon, your flaky side is going to come out. You’re going to start feeling forgetful and you might leave something of importance in a vulnerable location. Keep an eye on your journal, your wallet, and anything else that you don’t want to get left in the wrong hands, especially if it gets lost in the shuffle at work.
If you’re setting resolutions at the beginning of the year, luck is on your side, as is your intelligence! Nobody can pull off a resolution as a Gemini can. Your ability to learn quickly will help you get a step up right away.
Open your senses and inspire success this month with your blend, Vibrant!
Cancer the Crab: June 21 – July 22
Last month, you had the urge to reminisce and contacted someone from the past. This month, that translates into a renewed relationship. Be sure you cultivate this relationship and keep the fires of friendship and love going. This person will be of utmost importance in your life later in the year.
As soon as the clock strikes midnight in 2021, you will be raring to go with your new goals. But you might experience a roadblock on your path to these goals. If someone doesn’t support you as you work to tackle these goals, you might need to do some distancing or have an uncomfortable conversation. There’s no room for mediocrity in your world.
At the end of the month, you will overhear something someone says about you at work, either in person or through an email chain. Your vindictive side will want to lash out and defend yourself, but think before you leap, Cancer. Those words could hurt you in the future.
Mountain is your blend this month, as it is symbolic of your goals!
Are you ready for 2021, Leo? Because this year will be big for you, you may feel the pressure. If you set a word of intention for the year, we’re guessing it is something along the lines of “magic,” or “joy,” or “goals.” Although this is exciting for you, make sure you take time for your relationships too.
If you are in a romantic relationship, your partner is going to be more demanding than usual. This might cause an emotional rift. If you admit when you were in the wrong, everything else will fall into place. Be graceful, and know that your partner loves you. If you’re in a new relationship, don’t let a minor kerfuffle cause a misunderstanding.
Around January 15, you will feel a surge of power. This will cause you to dive headfirst into all things work-related. Make sure that you blow off steam by exercising, or this energy will get clogged in your body.
Peace +cbd is your blend this month, which will make for a calmer month.
Virgo the Maiden: August 23 – September 22
You’re still riding the high of family time from last month, Virgo. You hate to see the coziness of the holiday season end, so it takes you a little longer to wake up to January. In fact, don’t be surprised if your holiday decor stays up all month long. Just don’t let it take all month to set some new intentions for the new year.
2021 is going to be a good year for you, Virgo! But only if you decide to focus on creating routines that work instead of criticizing what the people around you are doing. Although you get inspired quickly, you are usually the first to point out what is going wrong. If you try to change your ways this year, you might be pleasantly surprised!
Have you been so cozied up in your own world that you have forgotten about some of your friends? Be sure to give them a call this month and let them know that you are still thinking about them. They will be delighted to hear from you!
Try Cheer for January, because you are going to be feeling happy!
Good news, Libra! 2021 is going to be a better year for you than in 2020 and even 2019. The sweet victory of success is going to be rocking your world all year long, but you have to make it a joint effort with the universe. Let go of limiting beliefs, bad habits, and toxic relationships to be your best self.
You have a secret resolution this year, and you haven’t told a soul about it. Unfortunately, your tendency to overthink things has you stuck in a stop-go routine when it comes to chasing your dreams. To really have the year you are expecting, this is yet another thing to tackle.
This is a great month for friendship. Get together with your oldest confidant, and you are sure to have a great time. You will laugh harder than you have in a long time and experience a refreshing renewal in spirit. Plus, you will ride the good feelings from this visit for a long time!
Try Cozy this month and feel the warmth of friendships and comfort with yourself.
Scorpio the Scorpion: October 23 – November 21
Last month, you rekindled a friendship and it reignited your spirit of generosity. As a result, getting involved in a cause you care about is at the top of your resolutions list this month. Do your research first and make sure there aren’t any underlying conflicts that will interfere with your good deeds.
As a complex and mysterious sign, your sense of humor does not always show. Don’t be afraid to show that you are a human like the rest of us. Not everything is as deep and complicated as you think it is. This will be your biggest challenge as you set goals this year. Know that you can do it!
If you are single, this is a great time to meet new people. You are particularly alluring this month and extremely charming. People will be attracted to your thoughts, desires, and your unique way of looking at the world. If you’re already in a relationship, it’s a great time to spend more time together, especially before the end of the month.
Zen +cbd is your blend this month to help keep you calm and grounded.
Sagittarius, you were made for the new year! Your deep sense of optimism and spontaneity means you have resolutions like the rest of us, but take a more casual approach to achieve them. Because of your laid-back approach, you might find success more easily than others. Don’t let your confidence turn into arrogance, though.
Nip your fun spending in the bud right now, especially after overindulging during the holiday season. You might have some unexpected expenses pop up before February, and you will regret blowing any fun money frivolously. Taking the responsible route will save you a big headache and set your year out on the right foot.
Make sure you get some social time this month, even if it is virtual. A lack of social time will make your charismatic spirit cranky. Spending time talking to friends will improve your well-being and amp up your energy as we head into February.
Ocean is your blend this month, which will invigorate you even more!
Capricorn the Mountain Goat: December 22 – January 19
Around the full moon, you will feel an extra push to clear your mind and get in touch with your deepest inner desires after a very contemplative new year. Your disciplined and realistic approach to goal setting already has you ahead of your plan. By February, you will be seeing the results of your hard work and planning.
Your love life is going to be one of the most important focuses of 2021. You will see your relationships with greater clarity, inviting in more fun, passion, and excitement. This is the year you make fantasies a reality, whether you have been in a relationship for twenty years or two weeks. One thing is for certain: this year will be truly unforgettable for you.
An old fear is going to resurrect itself this month and take you by surprise. Instead of running away, confront this fear and tackle it head-on. The results will be more rewarding than you expect and will invite some unprecedented abundance into your life.
Try Sleepy this month. This will help you get the rest you need to handle the unexpected.
Ah, the Age of Aquarius. This is a momentous event for you! For the first time in 30 years, Saturn is in your sign. Jupiter is there too, meaning this is an excellent time for you to plan out what you really want. That, combined with the magic of a new year, means it is time to take action. Map out what you want in a year, five years, or even a decade. Make a strategy and go for it!
As the year begins, think about new ways of making money. Have a business idea in the back of your mind? Write out a plan. Talk to others about it. Make it happen. Thinking about switching jobs or even making a complete career change? Consider what it will take to really make that happen.
This is a good month to tap into your spiritual side. Journal, meditate, and reflect on what your hopes and dreams are for 2021. You will experience a rush of gratitude that makes you feel calm and hopeful.
Try Focus +cbd this month. This is YOUR time to shine!
Pisces the Fish: February 19 – March 21
You are feeling recharged this month after spending some much-needed alone time last month, Pisces. This is really important because you will spend some time working on your fears this year. What’s really holding you back? Ask yourself this question, because now is the time to answer it.
Another thing that you should work on is your self-esteem. You might be feeling a little drained and shocked by the events of 2020. You experienced a serious blow to your confidence that has you wondering how to process what is next. Take time to write down your goals and focus on anything that might be blocking their path.
You might feel unsettled mid-month. Call a friend or lean on your partner. Do not try to figure out what is challenging you alone. That will only lead to more frustrations, and it will take you longer to get back on track. Problems are always solved more efficiently when you have a little help.
