Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Saturday January 16th to Friday January 22nd, 2021.
The Jupiter-Uranus’s link this week is at its most intense for nearly four years. Together they focus on the search for freedom, and promise major breakthroughs. Will we get to the bottom of all that’s happened behind the scenes recently? Perhaps not. But we can seize hold of an opportunity to live with more awareness and, as Mars and Uranus link, take action that releases us from false securities and restricted ways of thinking. With the Sun in Aquarius, it’s time to live for the future.
Have you ever found yourself midway through doing something, and realised that you’ve forgotten what you were trying to achieve? It happens to everyone. Young people call it a ’memory lapse’, whereas older folk call it a ’senior moment’. You’re in the process of reassessing a part of your life where you’ve invested a lot of your time. You used to feel confident about why you were doing what you were doing. As Mars and Uranus link this week, you’re right to review your plans.

Many of us enjoy watching racing. From animals to humans, we like to wonder who will be fastest. Yet, while we find speed fascinating; we don’t tend to show much interest when it comes to observing snails or stalagmites; we can anticipate what’s going to happen – and it’s going to take ages! You’re waiting for something to happen in your life. And, with Mars in your sign aligning with Uranus, you’re tired of being patient. This week, even though you may not be able to leap into action, change is coming.
What’s the chance of you leading a life in which everything goes exactly the way you want it to? There’s probably more likelihood of winning the lottery! Yet, although we all accept that we’re unlikely to win the jackpot, we feel upset when our days don’t go as planned. It sometimes feels as if our planet is the equivalent of a cosmic boot camp. We’re not supposed to be on holiday, we’re here to learn. Yet, you’re about to find that things aren’t anywhere near as difficult as they seem.
’There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy’. These words, spoken by Hamlet, are worth keeping in mind this week as a powerful cosmic climate brings a series of unorthodox and unexpected developments into your world. Yet, rather than being overawed by events, you’ll have the presence of mind to respond with positivity and take advantage of the surprises as they appear. If you allow yourself to be carried away by the magic, you’ll go far.
In challenging times, it’s hard to know what to do when the winds of change start to blow. Although closing the curtains, and snuggling up under the duvet until they’ve passed by, might be the most sensible option, there’s another possibility. A pair of psychological wings is available this week. If you put them on they’ll carry you on an imaginative journey that inspires you to indulge your creative side. You don’t have to go anywhere to find a new landscape when you’ve found inner freedom.
Although the pressure on you is intense, there’s no need to overly assert yourself or get involved in any dramas. Be your gentlest most sensitive self this week. Your request has been heard by a kindly cosmos and it’s doing its best to be supportive. Even though it might take a while before you get the result you want, as long as you stay quietly confident, and relaxed, the Mars-Uranus link suggests that you’ll get the outcome you’re hoping for - or that an even better option will appear.
The success you’ve been striving for is within reach. How can I be so certain? Well, I can see what the cosmos has in store and the potential it holds. Even though there’s no magical short cut on the horizon, the road stretching ahead of you is straight, and any obstacles are small enough for you to be able to find an easy route around. As long as you’re strong enough to conquer your inner doubts, the link between Jupiter and Uranus will fuel you with the energy to make tangible progress.
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? You see yourself looking in the mirror of course! Sometimes, we smile at our reflection. Other times, we frown. But we rarely scowl or show unbridled rage. If we really want to observe how we appear to other people, we have to catch glimpses of ourselves when we’re not really looking. That’s not an easy thing to achieve! Our unconscious behaviour reveals more than we like. This week, the Mars/Uranus link reveals something you need to see.
You’ve been remarkably self-disciplined. That’s why you deserve a treat. Well, that’s what you keep thinking. Meanwhile, your conscientiousness is preventing you from taking any kind of rest. That’s the trouble with being good. The problem is that once the initial glow has begun to wear off, you start to feel edgy. While there are some adventures that you really shouldn’t embark on, as long as it doesn’t involve taking a risk, this week brings a chance to satisfy your need for some excitement.
You could be better off. But then, so could we all. You could be a lot worse off too, which can’t be said about everyone. More importantly, is your situation improving or worsening? On the economic side, with Venus in your sign, a sense of comfort should be prevailing. Despite global uncertainty, rather than anticipating a crisis, you should soon see reasons to celebrate. This week’s powerful cosmic climate brings reassurance; a problematic situation (or relationship) holds great potential.
Your best course of action this week, is to do nothing. I’m serious! That’s not to say that you can just sit on the sofa and expect to be waited on hand and foot. That’s not the sort of ’nothing’ that will take you very far. I’m talking about the sort of inaction that means that you don’t react to provocation or feel obligated to rush to anyone’s rescue. Be as passive as you can be. With dynamic Mars forming a conjunction with your ruling planet, Uranus, what you need will come to you surprisingly naturally.
The small green bottle is filled with truth serum. The purple one contains sleeping potion. Don’t get them confused or let anyone switch them around. Bear in mind that an adversary won’t stop at anything. They’ll use every trick in the book if they’re determined to get to the bottom of a secret before you. In this week of revelations, keep your ears and eyes open and don’t give information away unless you’re confident that the people you share with will give you the encouragement you deserve.
