Midara’s January 2021 Horoscopes for All Signs


2021 is finally here! The trials and tribulations of 2020 have passed, and we’re entering new territory.

Mars will leave Aries for Taurus on the 6th, officially marking the end of the Cardinal Clash and the beginning of the Fixed Frustration. The planets in Aquarius will square off against Mars and Uranus is Taurus, creating a whole new kind of tension.

But it’s not all bad! Venus will make a lovely trine to Mars and Uranus and later a sextile to Neptune. Uranus will go direct, giving us all a little jolt out of our ruts.

The funny thing is that the pleasant and difficult aspects all seem to happen at the same time. For instance, on the 9th, Venus will trine Mars, but Mercury will conjunct Saturn. On the 13th, Venus trines Uranus, but Mars squares Saturn. On the 28th, the Sun will conjunct Jupiter, but Venus conjuncts Pluto.

It reminds me of a classic Simpsons Halloween sketch. Homer is shopping for a toy for his son for Christmas, and comes upon a mysterious shop. He chooses a doll and talks to the shopkeeper. The exchange goes like this:

Shopkeeper: Take this doll, but beware, it carries a terrible curse.

Homer: That’s bad.

Shopkeeper: But it comes with a free frozen yogurt, which I call frogurt!

Homer: That’s good!

Shopkeeper: The frogurt is also cursed.

Homer: That’s bad.

Shopkeeper: But it comes with your choice of topping!

Homer: That’s good!!

Shopkeeper: The toppings contain potassium benzoate.


Shopkeeper: That’s bad.

Homer: …Can I go now?

That’s pretty much the theme of the month. It’s a giant mixed bag of weird surprises, which strikes me as the perfect beginning to this new Aquarian cycle! If nothing else, one thing is for sure: the change we got a taste of in December is finally here in earnest. The new day has dawned.

  1. Me reading the Libra horoscope:

    Whoa, whoa, that’s just romantic! Is she gonna say it? Is she gonna say finally its time for romance! This person would be perfect!

    Reaches last sentence, “I GOTTA BE THAT PARTNER” ?????

  2. It also reminds me of that old story Who Knows What’s Bad or Good, or The Parable of the Chinese Farmer/ Horse (not as funny)

  3. “No one goes to a theater to watch two hours of peaceful rides on horseback.” – my Sag stellium ❤️ this & ??? Truth, Midara!

    Responsible Cap – My Saturn & rising in Cap definitely tame those three planets in Sag. Age helped me realize Cap enables me to actually implement those good Sag ideas.

    My favorite: “What if your power lies in who you are and not what you think?” ♒️ intercepted in 1st, so Jupiter & Saturn transiting now. Realized lately I’ve just been ‘a walking head’ the past five years, so this one really makes me ?

    Long way to say, your Jan scopes really spoke to me?

    • Haha, I’m so glad!

      As to this part: “I’ve just been ‘a walking head’,” my Gemini Moon understands so well. It’s hard to be grounded and embodied when so much cool stuff is happening in your brain!
