We start the year off with many major astrological events occurring including a New
Moon in Capricorn. This is occurring on 13 January 2021 at 6pm NZT. A New Moon is always the starting point for the next months events, and foretells what topics we will be focusing on. For the collective, this New Moon is bringing with it a serious and deep tone in making us all look where we are striving to get too in our long term vision and our long term career. What changes need to be made in order to get you on your path? This also applies to your spiritual path, are you following your inner guidance to allow yourself to evolve? I suggest to use this New Moon energy to set yourself short term and long term goals for how you are going to achieve your vision. What structures need to be formed to set the foundation for your plans to manifest. This New Moon is sitting with bad boy Pluto, which indicates some deep and cut throat changes need to occur. It will be an interesting month ahead, as Pluto is showing us some deep truths about power on a global level and where there needs to be some big changes in the political sphere. It also brings in the Saturn and Mars square which indicates ego conflicts and frustrating roadblocks. Saturn square Uranus is also already at play and will become exact later in February. However we are already feeling the effects of this tension – needed and sudden change is coming in whether we want it or not. For a better idea where this New Moon is playing out in your chart, look to the house ruled by Capricorn.

Mercury the planet of communication, ideas and how we think moves into Aquarius on 9 January 2021. You will notice your thoughts speed up, ideas coming in hot and the ability to see things from a very different perspective – almost like your looking down on yourself and can see your life from an angle that allows you to see all your possible options.It may be harder to concentrate as you find yourself wanting to rebel and do something different. It’s a great time to listen to those ‘aha’ moments that will be coming to you (I suggest writing them down). As Aquarius is an air sign, you will feel more detached than usual and more in your intellect (if you feel ungrounded get out into nature). Stimulating conversations and topics about the future, technology, innovation, science, environment and the metaphysical are bound to crop up more than usual over the next couple of months (we have mercury retrograde in this sign). You will feel attracted to like-minded people even more around this time and no doubt will be wanting to be around groups of friends more (good time to socialise). It’s a great time to be part of something with a great cause in your community. Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Aquarius to get a deeper understanding of how this placement will affect your mind, or better yet a reading to find out whats in store for your 2021.
We kick off the first week of 2021 with 3 planetary changes. Changes will be coming in smartly to kick of the Aquarian year we have in store. The tension between letting go of old structures and reinventing new, will be felt by us all. Mars the planet of action, assertion and determination moves into Taurus on Thursday 7 January 2021 NZT. Your get up and go drive will be moving from a very energetic pace to a now ‘slow and steady wins the race’ kind of pace. We have had Mars in Aries for an extremely long 6 months where tempers have been high and energy levels have been pushing us hard that some may have experienced burnout. You will notice your motivation now to be out in nature, smelling the roses, eating delicious foods and being motivated to look your best for the next 6 weeks. Mars in Taurus is motivated by security in relationships financially and emotionally. It really is a time to slow the pace of life and enjoy the moment. This energy helps to sort relationship issues, values and finances. The flip side to this energy is to watch for becoming very stubborn in getting your own way or being motivated by superficial things rather than getting amongst the more natural earthy side of life. While Mars transits the sign of Taurus we will experience some bumpy aspects with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius. People may become more fixed in their ways, behave erratically and refuse change. However these transits are asking us all to break free and reinvent how we are leading certain parts of our lives. Look to your Natal chart and see where Taurus and Aquarius rules to get a more specific idea of how this transit will affect you. Feel free to reach out for a reading if you want to get a more in depth understanding how you are being affected through these transits and what else is in store for you this year.
Happy Solstice! This is the time when we have the longest day in the sothern hemisphere and shortest day in the northern hemisphere. It is an energetic portal for new beginnings and changing of chapters. This is the time of year when the Sun shifts into Capricorn and our goals become
highlighted…what are we going to set for the New Year? Where are we heading and what is our purpose? Its all the big questions that come up at this time of year. We usually have some time off work around this time which allows us to really have a good think of what needs to leave and what will stay as we head into the New Year. What is your vision not only for the year ahead but for the next decade? Capricorn loves to look at the long term plan and put steps in place to achieve that ultimate vision. We have just said goodbye to Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn, that have hounded us with these questions over the last year in particular. We have endured sobering times with a lot of hard work. But those who put in the hard yards will get a reality better than they had dreamed. Mercury the planet that rules our mind and communication enters Capricorn on the same day. Mercury in this position for the next 3 weeks will bring our communication style to a much more methodical approach and see things a lot more black and white. The need to compartmentalize and bring structure to how we deal with situations will be strong. I suggest to use this energy by bringing structure and order into your life as well as planning a future that will pay off as an investment.
Jupiter enters Aquarius on 20 December 2020. Jupiter represents knowledge, learning, expansion and thinking BIG. I personally find it interesting when I observe certain high school years and their collective traits. Jupiter travels through a sign for roughly 1 year, therefore you can see trends with people born in the same year. They also tend to “get on with” certain other year groups better, and I put this down to Jupiter. Jupiter represents our beliefs and philosophies, therefore you are likely to gel better with people who think more similarly to you.
Now, we have had a rough old year with all this Capricorn energy swirling around. Reality check this, reality check that, big fat reality checks for the collective. It is now what we do with these reality checks that Jupiter will help us create a new and better future. People who were born with Jupiter in Aquarius tend to be humanitarian types and people who place a lot of importance on their social life. Collectively we too will take on these traits over the next year, as we expand our networks and learn to focus on more humanitarian causes. Jupiter can expand your innovative and ‘unique’ ideas. For reference, Albert Einstein was born with Jupiter in Aquarius. Your eccentric and unpredictable behavior may expand as well as your intuition. My guess is that telepathy will become more “normal” so watch your thoughts 😉 Collectively we will see more scientific and technological advances be developed. People born with this placement have also been known to have great musical talents, so maybe we will see some new musicians in the spotlight. New ways of how we operate as a global society will also be implemented. Aquarian energy is very sudden and unpredictable so I think we are in for some sudden and rapid changes. In terms of new laws, we could see more internet laws come through or maybe more laws around socialising. Lastly, Aquarius rules out of space and aliens and astrology. Is this likely something that will be talked about more or new discoveries in these fields. We are in for a ride…
“Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking” Khalil Gilbran. We have a Solar Eclipse occurring in Sagittarius on 15 December 2020. A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is in between the Sun and the Earth in direct alignment. This will always be at the time of the New Moon. We have New Moons every month but Solar Eclipses occur approximately 6 months apart. The Solar Eclipse is the focal point of change indicating the main thrust of the movement. Usually, you can feel the eclipse effects as soon as one month before it occurs or one month after it occurs. Eclipses really do create milestones in our lives or obvious changing points on our path. This particular New Moon is great to set yourself goals for studying, starting a brand new adventure, or dreaming up new visions for your future. It is exceptionally great for reestablishing new beliefs and perceptions and ditching outdated and limited belief structures. It is a good time to learn from other cultures and other points of view. Questions are on overdrive, our minds wants to know everything. Its great energy to push you out of your comfort zone. Venus enters Sagittarius the following day. Our hearts are soaring for adventure and expression. We are feeling a skip in our step to follow our own spirit. Happy adventuring in the jolly season. So many more changes are happening over the coming weeks. We are transitioning into the Aquarian vibes as Saturn and Jupiter are about to enter here. Watch this space..For a better understanding of where you are being given fresh energy, look to your Natal chart and the house ruled by Sagittarius.
Mercury the planet of communication which rules our lower mind enters the sign of Sagittarius on 2
December 2020. While Mercury is in this placement we can expect to have our minds EXPAND with greater visions and quests for life. Life is boring without some kind of journey with this particular placement. A journey can mean either through the mind (via meditation/yoga) or on a physical journey whether overseas or down to the zoo – anything that pushes us out of our comfort zone and inspires us to learn and grow. Conversations are usually interesting with this placement as we explore our beliefs – on the flip side people can become domineering by preaching that their belief is “right”. Learning a new subject or language is a great way to channel this energy. Creating a vision board for future dreams is another great way to channel this energy. It is great to dream, however, reflect on what is working well and be content with that – as Mercury here can make us feel that the grass is greener. Your thoughts, on the whole, will become a lot more optimistic than what they have been in Scorpio for the last couple of months. We really have been taken into the underworld this past couple of months and have shed so much. Look to your Natal Chart to the house ruled by Sagittarius to get a deeper understanding where your thoughts are being drawn to. Feel free to book a reading with me if you wish to have your Natal chart done or want to understand your chart better.
A Lunar Eclipse is when the Earth is in between the Sun and the Moon also in direct alignment. Lunar Eclipses occur when Earth’s shadow blocks the sun’s light, which otherwise reflects off the moon. There are three types — Total, Partial and Penumbral — with the most dramatic being a total Lunar Eclipse, in which Earth’s shadow completely covers the moon. We will be experiencing a Penumbral Eclipse this time round. You may feel symptoms of dizziness, ungrounded, over-emotional, headaches, and psychic awareness on a high as we are all ascending – the next month we are experiencing an eclipse season… Highly fated events and situations take place in eclipse seasons. On 30 November 2020 NZT time we have a full moon in Gemini. Gemini rules our logical lower mind as opposed to our higher mind ruled by Sagittarius. Gemini energy also rules the twins (the dual yin and yang energy that resides within us), our immediate environment, versatility, communication, and restlessness. Around this full moon, you may be feeling the need to communicate your thoughts a lot more than usual. This may be either via social media or just needing to physically talk a lot (watch for snappy remarks). Thoughts and ideas will be flooding in which may make you feel a bit scattered as you will notice yourself starting one project and moving onto another before finishing the first one! This energy is best used to get errands done and standing up for yourself. Typical Gemini energy makes us analyze our feelings, so bear in mind to stop yourself over-analyzing your feelings. When we have a Gemini full moon it is always a time to stop and watch how your inner dialogue and thoughts are programmed – if they are not good then it is time to upgrade to better mindful techniques. Look to your Natal chart and the house ruled by Gemini to get a better idea of how this full moon will be affecting you or book a reading with me to find out more.
We have the Sun moving out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on 22 November 2020 NZT. I bet you can all feel a spring in your step and the transition of feeling more jolly and ready to start thinking about Christmas.The next month is a great time to gallop towards your visions, dreams and take the time to contemplate different philosophies (it really is a great time to debate… but don’t fixate on your own beliefs, but rather question other beliefs). A year where we have collectively been asked to question our beliefs and leaders in all areas of society, comes into full throttle again. It is usually the time where many people crave an overseas experience, however channel this into reading a novel or trying something new (maybe a new walk or a new cookbook). It is a time to think BIG and discover what it is you are aiming for in work/family/hobbies/relationships. Watch for getting carried away with ideals and indulging too much in rich foods. I suggest you use this energy to create a vision board for yourself and try a new hobby or task that you have been putting off. Look to your Natal chart to the house ruled by Sagittarius to see where you are needing to expand your beliefs and ideas for the coming month or reach out for a reading and learn more about yourself.
“Meet me in the middle of your story, when the soul is worn but wise”. Venus the planet of love and values moves into Scorpio on 22 November 2020. Venus will be asking us to get to the bottom of any issues to do with love, relationships and values. This can help with issues that have been floating around in your mind, confusing you for the last couple of months. You will start to see things very clearly. Venus in Scorpio analyses its emotions so deeply that you’ll know if your 100% in or 100% out. Feelings that may arise with Venus in Scorpio are jealousy, possessiveness, being secretive and using your power to manipulate. The best ways to channel this energy is by sorting your finances and also using your investigating skills when it comes to researching any topic. It is also a great time to express your emotions through romance with your loved one. Passions will run deep with all this Scorpio energy therefore find ways to channel this into hobbies or your job. This will help limit self destructive behaviour. Maybe a thriller movie or deep mystery book will temper your detective feelings. People from your past may appear, as well old wounds. We can use the next month to heal and/or resurrect connections. For a better idea of how Venus in Scorpio will affect you, look to your Natal chart and the house ruled by Scorpio.
