Astrology for Healers and Therapists – January 2021

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations. That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive. Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding. The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory. If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in January when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day. Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one. It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month. Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

Things have not been very smooth at all during December.  People were digging in their heels and feeling less and less like compromising as the month progressed. There was little evidence of the Christmas spirit being shown re relationships.  Now what will happen.

The week beginning the 3rd January

On the surface there appears little change from last week. However, Venus has formed a line of ease with Mars and the weekend shows a Grand Trine with the Moon, Sun and Uranus.

Cardinal 4 – Fixed 3 – Mutable 3

Fire 2 – Earth 5 – Air 2 – Water 1

The Modal scene is unchanged, but Earth has gained a sign from Air.  

At least for the weekend there should be sudden moments of emotional rest.  Grace in action!

Counsellors – If you are working this week then things would appear far more relaxed to begin with, however, don’t stir up the deeper issues or you will still have your hand bitten off.

Healers – the lack of Water might be worth paying attention too although the preponderance of Earth should not be problem at the moment.

The week beginning 10th January

Mercury has moved into Aquarius and Mars into Taurus.  Venus has dropped its challenge with Neptune and formed a line of ease with Mars. As the Sun has lost its line of ease with Uranus Neptune has formed a line of ease with the Sun and Pluto conjunction. 

Cardinal and Mutable have both lost a sign to Fixed  and Fire has lost a sign to Air. 

Cardinal 3 – Fixed 5 – Mutable 2

Fire 1 – Earth 5 – Air 3 – Water 1

The underlying perversity cannot always be ignored.  Scratch the surface and you expose strong emotions and deeply held beliefs.

Counsellors –Don’t expect great things this week.  You will be disappointed if you do.  Very small steps will be the most you can work for.

Healers – Unlike Counsellors you can hope for progress this week in most areas of therapy.  There is understanding of conditions stood alongside elemental healing energy. 

The week beginning 17th January

Neptune appears out of the picture as it loses any obvious major aspect, although the Moon is conjunct with it on the Sunday.  Mercury also seems unaspected but the loose bundle of Jupiter, Saturn, the Sun and Pluto is causing a very strong challenge with the Mars and Uranus conjunction.  Uranus has resumed a forwards movement through the heavens.

There is no change to the Modal scene, but Fire has lost its only sign to Water.

Cardinal 3 – Fixed 5 – Mutable 2

Fire 0 – Earth 5 – Air 3– Water 2

The word that comes to mind is Polarisation.   The deep seated unease is going to show itself through prejudices and by identifying with long held groupings such as neighbourhood, nations, religious affiliations, north and south, or political affiliations. This is a chart for possible violence as deception and fantasy dominate over compromise and common sense.   

Counsellors – If you thought last week was hard going this week will be ten times worse.  No the world has not completely gone mad.

Healers – From the sublime to the ridiculous.  It will seem as if you hit a brick wall and you are left wondering where that came from.

The week beginning 24th January  

Mercury is still unaspected but Neptune has formed a weak line of ease to Venus.  Venus and Pluto have broken away from the loose bundle.  The Sun has moved into Aquarius. 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed whilst Earth and Water have both lost a sign to Air.

Cardinal 2 – Fixed 6 – Mutable 2

Fire 0 – Earth 4 – Air 5 – Water 1

There seems little compassion around these days.  Aggression and forthright voices are to the fore.  Nobody is prepared to move closer to compromise anymore.  Stalemate in everything around us.

Counsellors – You might well lose Clients this week as they seem unprepared to work or view anything remotely looking as a positive outcome.  You will wonder why you ever thought it a satisfying vocation. 

HealersThat brick wall has turned to granite despite the Earth energy predominating.  Why don’t you have your annual holiday? 

The week beginning 31st January 

There is only one major aspect line to consider and that is the red challenge between the Mars/Uranus conjunction and the Sun/Jupiter/ Saturn loose bundle.  The rest is seemingly empty!

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Earth has gained a sign from Air.

Cardinal 2 – Fixed 6 – Mutable 2

Fire 0 – Air 4 – Water 1

Despite the seeming intransigence there is a glimmer of hope as some inward thinking or awareness taps individuals on the shoulder. Otherwise the stalemate of last week is reinforced in peoples’ awareness.

Counsellors – It is your turn to have that holiday.  Try as much as you like you will make no headway with Clients this week.

Healers – It could be that healing energy begins to move again, despite the intransigence of the chart. 

Don’t give up
