As you know, Mercury just went into retrograde in Aquarius, and you have been feeling the frustration from it during the shadow period. That means there will be many missed appointments, missed mail, missed emails and texts, plenty of misunderstandings, and power outages. You could also have appliances breaking and problems with your car or vehicle. That is going to make you very cranky.
And on the 1st, Venus moves into Aquarius, which will cause you to become emotionally detached and independent. However, this transit may make you more rational, helping neutralize some of Mercury retrograde’s effects. You’ll have the preference to do your thing alone often.
As the week comes to a close, Mercury retrograde makes a conjunction with the Sun. Therefore, you may not come off as assertive and may struggle to stand up for your rights and beliefs. Because Mercury is retrograde, you will want to make sure that you triple-check documents and details of projects before sending them over. Don’t begin anything new. How will your sign do this week based on the planetary energies?
Aries – The inclination of making a quick decision is there, but you will want to hold off because, again, Mercury is in retrograde. Instead of taking immediate action, write down what you are thinking and why you want to make a move. After Mercury goes direct in a few weeks, you can evaluate it then, which means your judgment will be better. The tarot card for you this week is the Hermit, which also suggests that you must sit and reflect on why you want to make a bold move.
Taurus – Don’t be surprised if you have a sick kid or a parent who needs extra help. You will find yourself having to face more responsibilities this week, and life will be somewhat chaotic. However, don’t forget to utilize some self-care tactics this week because you will need them. The card that comes up for you is the Ten of Wands to feel burdened, and you will want to delegate what you don’t need to do!
Gemini – There is a good chance that you will lose a friendship this week because of discovering being tied to; however, you will rebound because you are Gemini. This experience will encourage you to talk about the importance of communication with your other friends and family. The card that comes up for you this week is the Ten of Swords, which is an ending, and that always makes room for a new beginning.
Cancer – This week, you will need to stand up for yourself as much as possible because others will ask you for many favors. You will struggle to say ‘no,’ but the test is for you to do that because you need to care for yourself. The card that comes up for you is the Two of Pentacles, as you need to balance your time and resources. Now is not the time to do favors for those who will only drain you.
Leo – You may not be happy with how your funds are doing. However, keep in mind that Mercury is in retrograde, so do not make any bold decisions that you can regret later. You will want to gain advice from a trustworthy financial advisor. You can do that at a better time, but you can look into making the arrangement this week to have an idea of what to do. The tarot card that shows up this week for you is the Hanged Man, which means do not do a thing with your funds right now and wait until a better time to go ahead with it.
Virgo – Your overall health and well-being need nurturing because you will face stress as your sign’s ruler is in retrograde. You can help yourself by focusing on deep breathing, getting some exercise, and eating well. It won’t remove stress from work and your personal life, but you will manage it better in good health. The tarot card that shows up for you is the Queen of Cups reversed, which means to focus on your self-care before you care for others right now.
Libra – Ironically, the retrograde will help to enhance your creative juices. Venus is making a trine to your sun, so you will want to take advantage of the creativity you have already, and that means you can become potently creative. Even though it is not ideal to start new projects right now, be sure to note down what comes through your imagination so you can use them in the future. The tarot card that comes up for you is the Ace of Wands, so you will most definitely have some creative ideas that you will want to act upon, but do it at the right time. Now is not that time.
Scorpio – Are you disappointed in those who did not live up to your expectations? You will end up with some wake-up calls this week that will make you realize you judged others unfairly. You will find that those who you judged are just reflecting on areas within yourself that need improvement. However, at the same time, don’t be hard on yourself for judging them either. The card that shows up this week for you is the Moon, which means you will want to do some shadow work this week.
Sagittarius – You will struggle with anger this week, and be careful not to take any frustrations out on those who don’t deserve it, which you will regret later on. When you feel enraged, the best thing to do is to excuse yourself and then count to ten. Keep the blue candle lit by your side, as that will help create a calming environment. The card that comes up for you this week is the Five of Cups, which means the disappointments and sadness you feel are normal, and go and process them. Because you are a Sagittarius, you want to look at the glass half-full, but sometimes you can’t escape negative emotions and don’t be afraid to feel them.
Capricorn – Your focus for the week is work and money, and both are going smoothly. However, don’t allow your job to take over to the point of forgetting about your family’s needs. Don’t lose the work-family and home life balance that you worked so hard to attain. The card that comes up for you this week is the Queen of Pentacles, and that is a confirmation that you are a very balanced and nurturing provider.
Aquarius – You might get some money this week, which means you can spend it on something to treat yourself, or you can add it to your savings account for a rainy day. However, if you decide to spend it on yourself, that is okay too. You have been through a difficult time, so why not enjoy it. The Ace of Pentacles tarot card comes up for you, and this is a sign that a small sum of money is coming your way, or you may think of some investment opportunities for the future.
Pisces – Mercury in retrograde is affecting you because you will come to realize that you have some old projects to tackle, and you will want to get right to it this week. You may also have an old friend call you out of the blue. The Six of Cups tarot card shows up for you, which is indicative of an old friend or even an old flame emerging from the past.
The second month of 2021 is here, and with vaccines emerging, even with the production issues they are having – that will sort out, which means the end to the pandemic is coming.
