The Sun will roll through your 9th house this month activating your interest in places far away and sense of adventure. Travel yearnings abound and in instances where you can’t make a journey physically, stepping into being an “armchair warrior” will do, where watching, reading, or listening to others’ adventures can help fill that void for travel. Another fun way to bring the energy of different geographies into your own without leaving your town is to have culinary adventures with “theme” nights with cooking from different countries and cultures.
Potentials for long-distance or international travel are especially amplified at this time. But the odds are greatly increased that any travel adventures, near or far, await. While this time holds many great potentials for travel from the astrological perspective, of course, the manifestation of these potentials will be dependent on world and your local circumstances.

The Sun’s movement through your 9th house can also activate spiritual studies or church-related activities. Inspiration and optimism often accompany this transit so have a notebook ready for the great ideas and insights that will roll through you. Opportunities to step up your participation in Spirit-driven activities will be more likely at this time.
The desire to learn will likely be strong this month. Going on a ‘library bender’ is a fantastic way to use this energy. Courses of study and education of any kind could be a great use of the current and upcoming energy. This could be an amazing time to take courses of study for hobby, self-development, or professional reasons.
Intuition will be strong and favoring it over logic may prove extra fruitful now.
Writing, publishing, and public speaking projects are lit up BEAUTIFULLY at this time!
The draw to teach may be very strong now and favors creation of curriculum or other offerings. The house lit up for you now is also the house of publishing and public speaking. Opportunities in these arenas could come up now and the transits now could bring in big news and big opportunities. Some of these will have some tilt to the past but there are also wonderful possibilities for totally new ideas and ventures.
The 9th house that is highlighted for you this month is all about asking bigger questions and finding transcendent solutions. Imagine looking at any issue in your life from the top of a mountain. The view from this perspective can often bring solutions not thought of before. Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same line of thinking that created the problem.” Take this idea to anything that ails you at this time and watch the magic
All systems are GO as almost all of the planets are in Direct motion (very rare!) making the first half of January 2021 are prime times for launches, moves, big decisions, and major steps, just keep caution regarding things that seem too extreme or extravagant, or if you don’t feel certain about what you are doing.
There are still bursts of fiery energy in the early part of the month but as the month progresses, the personal planets all move into Earth placements, bringing laser focus for tedious projects and mega-manifestation potential.
News and events from the November and December eclipses might still be rolling in.
Clashes between the planets Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus can bring great restlessness and epic change. Things to be careful and awareful of are aggression (from you and outside of you), unproductive zealotry, reality checks, and unwelcome surprises or other jolts. Things to celebrate are the chance to strip away massive karma, break free of chains that held you down for a long time, new solutions that can come out-of-the-blue, brilliant work/career and other financial opportunities, exciting and interesting offers and insights.
Mercury begins its slide towards retrograde mid-month and things that seemed set may be called into question. Plan changes, miscommunications, confusion and uncertainty all tend to come along with this transit, as do blasts from the past, wrapping up of unfinished business, and internal reflection.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Gemini Horoscope is more relevant for you.
