Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Mars, your Ruling Planet, has been in Aries for the last six months, firing your passions and often exacerbating your anger and encouraging you to express your displeasure. On January 6, when Mars moves into Taurus, your mood is sure to shift. Spend the next couple of weeks enjoying the heat—Mars won’t be back in your Sign until May 22.
Taurus April 20-May 20
Mars has been in your Solar House of psychology for six months, inviting you to deepen your introspective exploration. Use the next two weeks to continue that inward glance because once Mars shifts into your Sign, your attention will turn toward external affairs and it’s likely you won’t have as much time as you need for meditation or contemplation.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Mars enters your Solar House of psychology on January 6, which means you have two more weeks of community activities—so live it up. As Mars shifts its emphasis you’re likely to shift yours, so be prepared to hibernate. But don’t worry. Mars won’t spend six months focused on an inward journey; hibernation will end just before the start of spring.
Cancer June 22-July 22
For six months Mars focused on professional issues, interests, and interactions. On January 6, as it moves into Taurus, your attention turns toward your community and how you can participate in it with more vitality and purpose. I’m not suggesting you have to run for office, but it’s likely you’ll feel the need to share your ideas and opinions with the intention of making a difference.
Leo July 23-August 22
When Mars leaves Aries on January 6 and moves into Taurus, it moves you out of a contemplative phase and into a phase devoted to professional pursuits. Even if you are retired, you’re likely to be more public and involved in areas of your expertise. So use these next two weeks to rest up, because once 2021 begins, so will your vocational endeavors and you’ll need all your energy.
Virgo August 23-September 22
For the last six months Mars has had you on a transformational journey, which means you’ve been in a dynamic flux for a long time—and sometimes those ups and downs were more than a little disconcerting. Expect those fluctuations to continue, but anticipate that with the new year things will settle down. I can’t promise peace and quiet, but I can promise an easier pace.
Libra September 23-October 22
You’re going to need your sense of humor as Mars moves out of your Solar House of relationships and into your Solar House of transformation. On one level you’ll be laughing from relief—you’ve had nearly six months of Martian intensity with significant others and it hasn’t been easy. But transformation can also be intense, so rather than bemoan this next phase, welcome it with laughter.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Mars moves into your Solar House of relationship on January 6, shifting the focus from work to significant others. Use these next two weeks to gather your thoughts about relationship patterns and how you might want to manifest the might of Mars. Pay attention: this isn’t about taking an adamant stand just for the sake of showing strength; it’s about being thoughtful about how you relate to others.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
Mars leaves your Solar House of creativity and self-expression on January 6, but don’t worry, your creative fire won’t leave with it. Nevertheless, the emphasis will shift from fun to work as Mars moves into your Solar House of service. This next phase is not just about taking care of others. It’s also about taking care of yourself—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Mars leaves your Solar House of home—internal and external—on January 6 and enters your Solar House of creativity. The focus on self-expression might be a welcome relief after six months of focusing on your home, but the shift is still two weeks away. Spend the rest of Mars’ transit through the deepest part of your Solar chart reflecting on what you’ve learned about what you need to feel safe.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
Mars has been in your Solar House of communication since the end of June, which means you’ve spent the last six months focused on conversations, dialogues, and any other form of communication—and there’s been a lot to talk about. On January 6, the emphasis shifts to the home—internal and external—but don’t worry; this phase won’t be six months long.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Mars focused on finances for the last six months, but on January 6, as it moves into your Solar House of communication, the focus moves to all sorts of conversational interactions, from texts to emails to phone calls to video conferencing and more, as you dialogue with friends and strangers alike. Be prepared for a wide variety of subjects to be talked about and analyzed.
