The Tarot is the mirror of our soul. Each card reflects what’s not only going on within us, but also symbolises our divine connection to the forces of the Universe — those which we can see and those which we cannot. The images printed on the cards are symbols that contain the keys to unraveling all the mysteries of our existence. However, these images have a life of their own, and thus, they change whenever the cards are shuffled. Every shuffle infuses them with magic. Every shuffle infuses us with magic. And so it goes for the January 2021 horoscope.
The following are divinely guided messages from The Universe through the medium of the Tarot. Though divided through the 12 signs of the zodiac, the message is highly personalised for you. The same force that guided me to pull the cards is the very same force that’s guiding you to read the message. I encourage you to keep an open heart and an open mind – that way, you’ll be more receptive to magic, and find the guidance you need for the fortnight.
For those who aren’t familiar with their astrological chart, I would suggest reading the passage pertaining to their Sun Sign, i.e. the zodiac sign that the Sun was passing through at the time of your birth. For example, if you were born on August 19, the Sun was passing through the sign of Leo. Thus, you would find your divinely guided message under Leo.
For those who are familiar with their astrological chart, I would suggest to read the passage pertaining to their Sun Sign, their Moon Sign, and their Rising Sign – also known as the Ascendant or the ‘Lagna’. The combined message will be all the more powerful for your journey.
The drastically dramatic times we’re experiencing on earth is a reflection of the drastically dramatic times in the heavens above. The cosmos is undergoing a major energetic shift and its effects are rippling over to our lives. However, this is all part of a great divine plan that is essential in our evolution. We may not see it now, but soon it will all make sense.
Past the winter harvest celebrations and a powerful New Moon, and quite the dramatic political start of the year – the stars are guiding you with special messages to not only make the most of the fortnight ahead, but also the year in general. Let’s see what they have to say.
Aries January 2021 horoscope
Balance is key this fortnight, as well as a motto that would be wise for you to follow this year. Be it balancing your work and personal life, or even a properly organising your daily to-do list in an efficient manner, focusing on balance is essential for making your life run smoother.
Work on your sleep cycles so that you have enough energy to not only power through your day, but also bring your ‘A Game’ no matter the surprises life throws at you. Most of all, balance your temper – the wrong flare can create fires that can be tough to blow out.
Taurus January 2021 horoscope
Clear your space, Taurus. Be it your home, your office (though now, they both could be the same for you), or even the space between your ears, and in your stomach. Clutter of all sorts, especially emotional clutter, only leads to chaos and resentment. Find ways to get rid of it ASAP.
Along with that, it’s important that you establish clear and solid boundaries that others can see and respect, but also so that you can have a safe space to just be in and slowly allow yourself to thrive fully. Boundaries are important, they signify self-love. Build them strong.
Gemini January 2021 horoscope
All’s not what meets the eye. Learn to look beyond the illusions, especially the self-created ones (you know what I’m talking about), and no matter how painful the truth it, learn to accept it for what it is. The best medicine is always bitter, because excessive sweetness causes diabetes.
Remember that at the end of the day, life’s too short to take things personally. It’s all a game, and you need to just relax and let the dice roll and play accordingly. Everything is temporal, and nothing is too dire to affect you forever. So just take a deep breath and move one step at a time.
Cancer January 2021 horoscope
An active creative pursuit is perhaps just what’s needed to bring about a sense of ‘freshness’ to your life. Even if you are in a creative field of work, carving out time for something that’s just ‘for you’ is essential as it’ll enable you to channel your emotional energies effectively.
Remember, the keywords are ‘active’ and ‘creative’. Passivity in excess festers toxicity, and your mind needs the stimulus so that it’s less prone to drift into a dark cloud of melancholy that’s deceptively comforting. It doesn’t need to be complicated, but yes, you need to will yourself to do it.
Leo January 2021 horoscope
A meditative practice is just what The Universe has ordered for you. It can be as simple as closing your eyes and focusing on the movement of your breath. Even if you do it for a minute or two, with a daily practice, you’ll discover multiple benefits, even beyond what you could imagine.
The key is consistency. The more you follow a disciplined routine, not only will your body, mind, and soul be rejuvenated, but you’ll find the strength to go beyond your limitations – and achieve not only your personal and professional goals, but clearly envision the best you can be.
Virgo January 2021 horoscope
This is a beautiful time to start learning – be it enrolling in a formal course with a certification, or even just updating your existing skill sets – go ahead and do it. Your mind loves being in the ‘student space’, and you’ll be surprised how all that you learn becomes integral to your life.
When we open our mind to learning, we’re not only allowing ourselves to evolve, but we’re also expanding our horizons and discovering new ways to attract abundance into our life. After all, when we chase Lakshmi, she runs away. But when we chase Saraswati, Lakshmi begins chasing us.
Libra January 2021 horoscope
Many of us make fitness based new-year resolutions. You need to get started on yours. Even if you haven’t made any, this is a wonderful time to start treating your body like the temple it is, and sweat out all the toxins of the past – especially emotional ones – and get summer body ready.
If you’re a novice to the world of fitness, get started now. If you’re already into fitness, it’s time to take it up a notch. Beyond just the physical benefits, a fitness routine will enable you to work through anger and bring the clarity you need to live harmoniously.
Scorpio January 2021 horoscope
There’s a big difference between being self confident and cocky. There’s also a big difference between being assertive and being aggressive. One is always balanced with mindfulness, while the other is fuelled by the ego. Understanding that difference can save you a lot of heartache.
When working from the point of mindfulness, you’re creating victories that benefit not just you, but all those around you, thus creating more good karma. When working from the ego, victories are temporary and shaky, and eventually, you lose more than you bargained for. Motives always matter.
Sagittarius January 2021 horoscope
All the answers you seek are actually within you. There are two steps towards accessing them. The first is to cut out all external chatter and chaos, for they’ll just deafen you to the truth of the situation. The second is to accept the truth for what it is because it’s what’ll set you free.
Deep in your heart, you know what is to be done, and what is right for the situations at hand. However, the more you give in to the chaos, the more you’ll fumble along the path of life, being forever listless and disgruntled. Be honest with yourself – brutally! It’ll only help you in the long run.
Capricorn January 2021 horoscope
This is the perfect time to actually be honest with yourself about who you are and what is it that you wish to do in your life. The more you’re honest and clear about that with yourself, you’ll be surprised how swiftly The Universe creates paths for you to tread on so that you can live your truth.
Pretending to be something or someone you aren’t just to please others, or even projecting an image you wish others to view you as, is not only exhausting, but also cuts off channels of love, joy, and abundance. Authenticity and honesty opens them up and allows you to live life in peace.
Aquarius January 2021 horoscope
Sometimes, we just have to get up and seize the day. While most are planning and working on discovering their paths, you need to just walk it with your head held high. This is a time for action, and action requires momentum, not constant hemming-and-hawing that just gets tedious.
True, this path can get lonelier the more we walk upon it. However, know that as long as you’re doing it authentically, you’ll always cross paths with like-minded souls who’ll not only keep you company, but enable you to build loving and healthy relationships as well, especially with yourself.
Pisces January 2021 horoscope
Faith can move mountains, turn deserts into fertile plains, and even turn water into wine. Your faith, not only in yourself, but in the overall magic of The Universe, will be what makes not just this fortnight, but the year ahead filled with joyful abundance in ways you can’t imagine.
Remember, Faith is a powerful force that works hand-in-hand with gratitude. Giving thanks to everyone (including yourself) not only builds the power of faith, but also manifests miracles in not just your life, but also in the lives of those you love. Worries will melt, hearts will soar, and peace will be consistent – you just gotta have faith!
