Happy New Year and welcome to your weekly horoscope for January 4-10 2021! It’s the first full week of 2021, and we’re starting the year with tons of planetary movement! We kick things off on Wednesday when Mars (planet of action) finally leaves Aries after spending six months in the bold fire sign.
However, Mars leaves its ruling sign for the sign of the Bull, which means that for the next six weeks we may feel stuck in slow-moving Taurus. While we might feel more determined and ready to play the long game, watch out for feelings of possessiveness and jealousy—especially when it comes to relationships.
On Friday, we hit a double whammy of energy when Mercury (planet of communication) enters Aquarius and Venus (planet of love) enters Capricorn. This creates an interesting but conflicting energy. Communication will be spontaneous and zany, but our partnerships and view of money will be very serious and reserved. However, this is a great time for networking and making connections that will help with ambitions and career goals. Get hustling!
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

How the Planets Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign This Week
Well, Aries, you had a good (and very long) run with your ruling planet in your sign. However, on Wednesday, Mars finally leaves you in favor of slow and steady Taurus. With Mars entering your sector of value, you might feel a little possessive about money and material things, almost to the point of obsession.
On Friday, Mercury enters quirky and entertaining Aquarius, making communication friendly and innovative. Mercury enters your sector of social relationships, putting extra emphasis on networking, which can lead to powerful brainstorming sessions with others.
And you can use that brainstorming to help you get ahead in your career when Venus (who enters ambitious Capricorn on Friday) trines Mars on Saturday. This is a great day to get serious about what you want, whether it’s love, money, or success. What do you want to achieve, and are you willing to wait for it?
It’s the first full week of 2021, Taurus, and you’ve got a long list of things you want to achieve.
