New Year, New Energies
by Rev. Dr. Psychic Cynthia
Welcome to this New Year of 2021!
The energies in 2021 are quite a bit different than the energies
for 2020. For one thing, in 2021, we won’t be under the heavy & restrictive mantle of several
planets in Capricorn any more. For heavy karma, restrictions, and limitations are integral parts of the
energy of Capricorn, and Goddess knows many of us felt and experienced this side of Capricorn in 2020. So
it will be good to be (mostly) leaving this energy influence behind for a little while, and it will be especially delightful
to be freed of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.
In terms of collective energies, Capricorn is useful
for giving us a reality check from time to time, and also exposing and bringing to the surface authoritarian or totalitarian
influences. (Both within ourselves, and others.) Capricorn transits are also some of
the very best for flushing out KARMA and helping us to grow by facing our limitations. And many of us certainly
did face limitations in 2020. Hopefully we were able to grow somehow or learn something from dealing with
those limitations in 2020, even if what we learned was simply how to maintain hope & optimism through difficult times.
WILL 2021 BE "BETTER"?
Of course, the question that is on every one’s mind is will 2021 be better than
I think that depends on how you are looking at it and at which level of reality you are speaking of. In
other words, are you looking at it in terms of what is going to happen in the physical world (in other words, actual events)
OR are you looking at it from the emotional, spiritual or mental perspective?
If you are looking at the year ahead from the emotional, spiritual,
or mental perspective, I would say that 2021 definitely holds the potential to be MUCH better than 2020, or at least, LIGHTER
& MORE EXPANSIVE, more free & light-hearted, since we have more of an emphasis in the AIR signs in 2021 than we did
in 2020. That is the good news, and it is very good news indeed!
FIXED SIGN ENERGIES
Now, if you are looking
at the year ahead in terms of larger geo-political or social events, and if you are wondering if governments will be better
in 2021, or if people will be kinder to each other or more understanding and tolerant, well, let me just say that this is
where it gets more complicated….
Although Air energy is definitely emphasized in 2021, there is a
concentration of energy in the FIXED air sign of Aquarius, which happens to be forming a tense square aspect to Uranus in
fixed & very dense earth sign Taurus.
This kind of tense & stressful focus on fixed energies tends
to bring forth greater STUBBORNESS, RIGIDITY, INFLEXIBLITY, and SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS. Definitely NOT the kind of energy
that is particularly conducive to understanding, kindness, unity, or tolerance. Furthermore, this is not a very peaceful
or harmonious energy.
Due to this predominance of fixed sign energy, expect people in general to continue
to butt heads in 2021 and to continue to vehemently disagree with each other when there are differences, rather than having
calm, logical or peaceful discussions. There is an aspect of the fixed sign energy that comes from the “my way
or the highway” perspective, making it harder to find common ground at this time.
This is not to say that peace
& harmony are not possible in 2021, but rather that it will take conscious effort and work to achieve mental harmony &
balance in 2021. This is true for each of us as individuals, and it is even MORE true for our world as a collective.
are to minimize violence and dis-harmony in the outer world in 2021, then we must focus on making the effort to be flexible,
gracious and understanding in our interactions with others, rather than being overly attached to being “right”
or attempting to convert others to our point of view.
In the context of these energies, the highest goal that we can strive for in 2021 is
to take charge of our own minds and choose to deliberately create peace & wisdom within, so that we may then move through
the world with a deeper sense of humility, understanding and peace. In this way, we can help to awaken the higher consciousness
of the collective, and in doing so, create greater peace, harmony, and abundance in our own lives.
BLAST OF AIR ENERGY
In 2021, we have a concentration of energies
in the earth & air elements, especially air.
Air energy is light,
flowing, and conducive to mental breakthroughs, insights and fresh perspectives—at least, when it is gentle & circulating
well. Air can also be fierce and wild; it can become stagnant or stale if it doesn’t move enough
or get to express itself enough.
In astrology, the air element is associated with communication, mental processes, thinking, thought forms
and consciousness. In particular, Aquarius (which is the air sign being most activated this year) is connected
with the higher mind and higher thinking. It embodies the flash of intuitive insight & sudden mental
breakthroughs. Aquarius is also associated with electricity, frequency and vibration….especially
the frequency and vibration of human thought.
In 2021, the emphasis on Air energy can bring
us bright and brilliant insights with a breath of fresh air, OR it can leave us feeling unable to breathe or stuck breathing
stale energies. It all depends on your unique circumstances, and even more, it depends on how easily you
express yourself on the mental level, and how balanced you are mentally & emotionally.
is a year to be mindful of the power of your thoughts, and more deliberate & conscious about which frequencies you are
dialing into and what vibration you are subsequently giving off in this world as a result of your inner mental frequencies.******
EARTH ENERGY BRINGS US BACK TO REALITY
There is tension this year between Saturn in airy Aquarius and Uranus
in earthy Taurus. While Aquarius is a free-spirited air sign, Taurus is a grounded & rooted earth sign.
Uranus is the co-ruler of Aquarius and is usually thought of as a free-spirit hippie or perhaps a passionate revolutionary.
But here in the earthy sign of Taurus, Uranus is charged with reform of a more practical nature, and must be responsible
and figure out how to feed & clothe the people and how to keep the farms & gardens growing well.
Change with Taurus is slow and steady,
with tried & true methods being favored over experimental ones. Whereas Saturn in Aquarius demands that
we innovate, break out of ruts, and explore new possibilities for doing thing and new technologies.
Taurus is resistant to change. But then, Taurus is also good
at doing what it does, which is feeding & nurturing us and ensuring our physical & material survival.
Aquarius longs to enhance life and free us from drudgery through technology and higher spiritual connection.
It may take time for the Taurus part to come around, but eventually Taurus & Aquarius might meet in the middle
and realize that they share a common goal, which is the improvement of daily life for us all.
This tension between
earth & air in 2021 could impede or challenge our ability to express ourselves freely. We may feel
at times that we are being held back from being our true selves, or that we have to do certain things that we do not like
or conform to a norm that we do not like, just in order to survive.
In particular, with Saturn in Aquarius, we may experience frustrations
& limitations with our ability to communicate, travel, or feel limited in our ability to fulfil our higher purpose.
On the other hand,
we may find Saturn in Aquarius to be an ally & helper, for Saturn here can bring focus, determination, and discipline
to help with expressing yourself, fulfilling your purpose, and doing what it takes to make your dreams come true.
Uranus in Taurus could
be a friend too, if we let it remind us of the need to stay grounded and honor our connection with nature. Indeed,
a new kind of revolution may be needed at this moment, one where we change our consciousness & thinking about our relationship
with both nature and technology.
Both Aquarius & Uranus have connections with metaphysics, higher science, humanitarianism, and technology,
as well as astrology. Tech will continue to be more of an issue in 2021—only instead of being looked
at as something cool and cutting edge that is "fun", we will start to view tech more and more as something that
has become necessary to earn an income or ensure survival.
