Sometimes you can see the Moon rise before the Sun sets. Even though the Sun’s show is still spectacular, the Moon begins to set up for her own performance. This month is much the same.
The cardinal clash that has been dominating the narrative for the last year is still in play, with Mercury hanging around in the late degrees of Libra in the first week of the month, followed shortly by Venus. Mars will also turn direct, attempting to make his way toward the final showdown with the other cardinal planets, but never quite catching up.
At the same time, the story begins to shift. Mercury joins the Sun in Scorpio, and as soon as the Sun moves on to Sagittarius, Venus takes its place. Like the Moon rising early, the focus on the fixed signs that will drive the story in 2021 is already beginning.
Finally, Neptune turns direct on the 28th, finishing the month with all planets except for Uranus in direct motion. We’re moving forward again, and life is about to change.
