Leo Horoscope January 2021 — Love and Career Predictions

Read what your sign’s 2021 horoscope predictions have in store for you or check out the Cancer personality profile. 

Welcome to January, Leo, and a whole new year. In December, at the end of 2020, you likely turned to self-care to handle the stress about how to handle holiday obligations. Social distancing is stressful for most people, but it’s possible that it’s especially stressful for you. After all, it’s not your fault that you crave attention and stimulation; your ruling planet is the sun. The earth actually does revolve around you. When fighter planet Mars enters sensual Taurus on Wednesday, December 6 in your 10th House of Career, you may get some long-awaited professional recognition that will satiate you a bit. Unfortunately, astrology can’t promise a financial boost (especially in this economy), but during this transit, you may experience extra luck when it comes to collecting overdue payments. 

The sky is busy on Friday, December 8. Communication planet Mercury enters logical Aquarius, where it will go retrograde later in the month. The goddess of love, Venus, also enters hardworking Capricorn in your 6th House of Health on this day. Relationships can already be complicated, and the pandemic has upped the ante a bit, both for those who are single and those who are already partnered. Whether you’re getting sick of Zoom dates or driving your partner crazy while you both work from home, things may feel a bit tense right now — and that’s normal sometimes. It just means there’s something to work toward. Keep your therapy appointments if you have them, and stay up on any hobbies and beauty rituals that give you satisfaction. It’s okay to be a little bit selfish; when you feel good you’re better able to show up for others. 

Eccentric planet Uranus has been retrograde since last August, which actually had many positive effects, as it brought out the humanitarian in us all. When it goes direct on Thursday, January 14, the world will feel calmer. Regardless if you took to the streets to protest or stayed in phone-banking for the election, don’t forget to keep fighting the power. There’s much work still to be done, and you, Leo, are a natural leader. 

Progressive Aquarius season begins on Tuesday, January 19. During this time, it’s great to be a weirdo. Whether you’re creating TikTok dance videos or experimenting with role-playing in the bedroom, the next few weeks are amazing to wave your freak flag. The full moon in your sign on Thursday, January 28, is the ideal day to schedule a night of lovemaking or press the post button on that video you’ve been working on. The stars are in your favor for manifestation. 

Messenger Mercury goes retrograde in aloof Aquarius and your 7th House of Relationships on Saturday, January 30. Even in retrograde, Mercury likes being in the air sign Aquarius, and the water bearer’s logical nature helps us keep our cool during the first Mercury retrograde of the year. However, because this one affects your love life (and let’s be real, that’s why most of us read horoscopes) make an extra effort to double-check your texts and not leave anyone accidentally on read. Additionally, beware of distant and emotionally withholding behavior. We all need all the love we can get right now, so don’t pull away from those who give you love, attention, and orgasms, if you can help it. See you next month, you rock star.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to. If you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
