As much as this week will give you your first read on the planets that are set to make 2021 a busy year, whether for job growth or anything that keeps you busy or occupies your time, life is unlikely to become all work and no play. Or at least not yet and especially not if Venus, Mars and their enablers have anything to say about it. On its own, Mars’ return to an adventurous part of your chart last Thursday and Venus’ return to a playful part two days later is reason enough to make a week that is all work and no play out of the question. However, held back by retrograde phases both were unable to return in 2020 and having already formed a friendly aspect over the weekend are ready to make up for lost time. This will be further energised by a New Moon in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Wednesday and Uranus’ direct turn in an adventurous part on Thursday.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of every year in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and because of that, it has been easy to take this for granted. Even more so over recent years because with Saturn here since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019, if you didn’t make it a priority in the early weeks of the year you could make up for it later. That is not the case this year and that makes a commitment to a balance between work and play a priority from day one and to the point that this needs to be baked into your New Year’s resolutions. It is not just that Saturn and Jupiter left last month and when the faster moving planets leave early next month you will only have Pluto to remind you. It is the fact that Saturn and Jupiter are in their first full month in your busy work sector and they are here to stay. Saturn is here until 2023 and while Jupiter will only spend the first and the last five months of the year here, he will use that time to promote job growth, opportunities and expansion. To begin with, with Jupiter and Saturn still in their early days here and still relatively close together, it is more about starting the year with Jupiter’s sense of what’s possible and Saturn’s determination to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. However, with Mercury returning to your work sector on 9th January and the Sun on 20th January this is when things could start to become busy. However, you will have backups that will ensure, for now anyway, life doesn’t become all work and no play. Those backups are Venus and Mars and they arrive with perfect timing. It begins with Mars’ return to an adventurous part of your chart on 7th January and Venus’ return to a playful part two days later on 9th January. While Venus is only here until early next month and Mars until early March, they will join forces to declare war on any attempts to make life all work and no play.
