2021 is finally here, and we are starting off the year with energy that has us feeling quite content with ourselves. Both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day feature a confident moon in Leo which is perfect for entertaining and festivities. The boost of fiery energy should be well-received to help us bring in 2021 with courage and a drive to move forward positively.
The following is an overview of the astrological trends for both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Full Moon Vibes with the Cancer Moon
New Year’s Eve begins with the wrap-up of the full moon in Cancer which occurred on December 29th. There is a desire to enjoy the holiday season with family and close friends. Moments of reflection as well as discussions about the coming year are likely. There is a tendency to hold on to things of the past which are amplified by the Cancer moon as well as Venus conjunct the South Node. In addition, the effects of Venus squaring Neptune from December 30th could also lead to some people being delusional or overly idealistic about relationships, money, and values.
The tail end of the Cancer moon will square Mars in Aries early during the day which can cause friction due to abrasiveness, selfishness, a desire to compete, and looking out for oneself at the expense of others. The past may be appealing for the comfort that it offers…especially as we wrap up 2020. However, there is new energy coming in that encourages us to move forward.
Leo Moon Energy for a Festive New Year’s Eve
The moon will move into Leo in the afternoon which is just the fiery push we need to move into the new year with confidence. Leo energy is confident, warm, generous, and enjoys being in the spotlight. We can use this energy to give ourselves a boost and bring in 2021 with the highest expectations. Harness the Leo moon energy by putting on your best outfit, pouring some bubbly, and spending New Year’s Eve celebrating brightly and luxuriously with good company. We all deserve to end 2020 with some festive flair that only Leo moon energy can offer in its very special way.
New Year’s Day
Walking Confidently into 2021
2021 is officially here, and we are still being graced by Leo moon energy until January 2nd. It’s time for us to embrace our inner confidence and make our mark. We are called to approach this new year with confidence and bravery. Like the lion, the king of the jungle, we are in control of how we navigate 2021. The Leo moon energizes us to take action to make the changes in our lives that we desire. Even if we feel fear, it is best to move forward anyway.
We each are the centers of our lives, and it is through this central focus on the self at the start of 2021 via the Leo moon energy that we can walk confidently into the new year with the highest intentions for ourselves and for others.
A Chill Vibe with Mercury sextile Neptune
Mercury in Capricorn makes a supportive aspect to Neptune in Pisces making it possible for us to ground our creative and spiritual expressions. This combination of energies encourages us to trust our intuition as the information that we receive can be applied practically for our benefit. Take note of any signs, messages, dreams, or other spiritual information. This is also good energy for pursuing artistic and spiritual pursuits such as listening to music, enjoying films, and delving into spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation. This energy supports a low-key New Year’s day after the outgoing festivities of New Year’s Eve.
We’ve been waiting for 2021, and now it is finally here! Here’s to ending 2020 on a high-note and beginning 2021 with confidence and happiness.
