Weekly Astrology Forecast: January 25 – 31, 2021

A person in a raincoat looks up at the stars.

We have two big astrological events this week that you won’t want to miss friends! The first is the Leo Full Moon on Thursday, which promises to add a bit of fun to the week. The second major astrological event to be aware of for this week’s astrology overview is that Mercury is going retrograde on Saturday.

Full Moons always bring surprises and being that it falls in the Fire sign of Leo, we can expect new opportunities and invitations!

With Mercury retrograde coming up, we can expect some of this planet’s usual trickster trademarks to start popping up. That means it’s time to start double-checking all travel plans, bring your back-up charger, and review all wording on important emails before you click send.

This retrograde also welcomes the first time of reflection in the New Year to see how our approach to our new goals is either working or needs reworking.

This is also an exciting week for love if you’ve been doing some manifesting in the romance sector of your life. Many people get asked out in the Full Moon window as people can express their passion more openly.

That being said, just because something shows up doesn’t mean you have to say yes!

How to Maximize the Full Moon Window

There will be a lot of energy starting on Tuesday as the Full Moon starts to come into effect.

Use it to make bold moves towards your goals but try not do not let the enthusiasm turn into fanaticism or emotional outbursts. In other words, keep it positive.

Leo emboldens us with confidence, so if you’ve been really looking for the guts-to-go-for-it, use this energy to make those big changes! Finally, keep an eye out for blessings that show up that may be wrapped a bit differently than you expect so you don’t pass up on any opportunity.

Overall, January 2021 astrology is wrapping up quite nicely this week with a big bang of celebratory energy that promises to bring the good vibes with that high vibe Aquarian Sun energy beaming on us.
