Biz StarCast – January 2021 Editionby Leslie Tagorda
Designing Your Sustainable Success
Happy New Year! You survived (and maybe thrived in) 2020, congratulations. That epic year is behind us and there is work to do. 2021 is about integration and rebuilding. Our systems and visions will be stretched. Some things may break because they are meant to be replaced by something even better. In January you get to decide what success is for you and how you will design it sustainably according to your perfect energy that allows you to live in your purpose and empower others.
How to use these cosmic energies:
- These are the collective cosmic energies available to us all.
- There is nothing to be fearful of. Get curious about what we need to learn.
- For larger shifts, you’ll feel the energy a week leading up to and away from.
To personalize energies:
- With conjunctions/meetings or lunar activations, look to the degree of the activation and find where that degree lives on your natal chart.
- Your astrological house in which the degree occurs, is where in your business or life more information is available for that cosmic shift.
The below January Forecast is just a TASTE of what you’ll get when you order your 2021 Business StarCast.
2021 Business StarCast includes:
- .ICS digital calendar so you can import ALL the cosmic events of 2021 and their meanings into your Google, Outlook or other iCal
- Printable 2021 Calendar available in US, Europe, Asia/Pacific timezones
- Full report and digest of the big events in 2021 so you can plan your business to work with the cosmos
Tips on how to personalize these collective energies with your natal design

It’s the first month after a cosmic shakeup of a year! We have lots of work to do to pick up the pieces we want to keep and recycle or compost back what needs to be made new again.
January’s star powers support the energy of change and breakthrough we need to:
- decide what success means to us
- Understand the sustainable practices that allow us to accomplish that success
- Choose the role we want our brand to take in building this new world
This month we see:
- A creative tension that desires technical equitable progress (Jupiter square Uranus)
- Personal planets moving into new signs giving us fresh outlooks (Mercury, Venus and Mars)
- And powerful lunar events packed with cosmic alignment
New Moon in Capricorn where you’ll get to clarify what success means to you in 2021.
Full Moon in Leo that illuminates all you need to release that prevents you from showing up confidently and being a leader in your community.
Mars leaves shadow zone
Full drive ahead
How have your shifted motivations and priorities settled in?
Where does your leadership and drive now move full speed ahead?
Mars is in its final days of Aries, it’s home sign which it’s been in for 6 whole months instead of the normal 6 weeks. From September through November 2020, Mars appeared to go backwards in the sky allowing us to reaffirm our motivations – as clearly those shifted in 2020. As Mars began to move forward, it had to retrace its steps and today, Mars steps out of this shadow zone and moves full speed ahead so we can take initiative on our true motivations in our life and business. No longer are we chasing the shoulds placed upon us by other people. Now that we are the leaders of our own destiny, leadership becomes easier as now we are clear with what we want and desire.
Mercury conjunct Pluto
Words have power
A great day to share an empowering message.
What words of empowerment can you share with yourself and others to build authenticity?
Mercury in Capricorn is fully blended with Pluto in Capricorn. When Mercury is in Capricorn, our thoughts are straight forward, and about getting things accomplished. And when blended with Pluto who is still working on bringing up all the shadows of big business and big power so that we can transform all of that old bs into light, we get to use our words to crystallize and empower others. Our words and thoughts have power. What future do you want to build? Each thought and word of ours are building this new future. Choose your words wisely as they have power.
A great day to get cozy with some friends.
4Q Moon Libra 16°17′
Relax + Socialize
What is being asked of you to integrate all that you have learned?
The last quarter moon phase is an integration phase in our lives and business. A time to cultivate all that we have learned and assess what we want to continue with and what we want to churn back into the earth as nourishment for the seeds we’ve planted.
With the Libra 4Q moon, spend some integration time relaxing with those you love most in your life and business, even if it’s a quick phone or vox message exchange.
Mars enters Taurus
Action requires patience
A great season to lead with patience.
What do you want to take your time in doing and initiating?
Mars enters patient earthy Taurus until March 3. Mars is ready to move forward but in Taurus, our motivation and initiative requires patience and steadiness. For some of us, this may feel frustrating because Mars wants to move forward and explore. But we are being asked to take our time, be patient, and be peaceful, the embodiment of Taurus ideals.
A great day to be inspired, plan your year goals, think about the future and decide on aligned partnerships
Uranus stations direct Taurus 6°47′
You need to break free
What does this urgency feel like?
If it feels anxious, what can you do to calm your nervous system?
Uranus is so far out that we don’t normally feel this energy on a personal level. But as Uranus changes gears to move forward in the sky it will drill down, appearing to come to a halt at this degree. As Uranus is in place, we will begin to get the sense and the need to break free, to individuate, to evolve and shake things up over the next week.
Look to Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius of 6°. If you have any planets in those signs those energies are going to want to shake things up in your business and life.
Mercury enters Aquarius
A great season to come up with that new social strategy.
What intuitive downloads about the future are you now knowing.
Mercury enters Aquarius until March 16, an extended time in this future facing sign (thanks to a Retrograde). When Mercury is in Aquarius our thoughts, mindset, and the way we understand information has a technical edge, is quick paced, and is for the greater good. All the downloads you get about the future may feel like a download of pure knowingness because Aquarius rules our nervous system.
While Mercury is in Aquarius at the end of the month we will have our first retrograde cycle of 2021 so we get to really rethink all the Aquarian ideals like social equity, humanity, and our larger networks and community.
This would be a great time to get clear on what you want to contribute in your greater networks like on social media, whether you choose Facebook, Clubhouse, LinkedIn etc.
Venus enters Capricorn
Connect through projects
A great time to partner and build something together.
What co-creative projects do you want to create this season?
Venus is in Capricorn until February 1. Venus in Capricorn loves connecting over building things and projects. Such a great season for entrepreneurs building and co creating with their ideal customers and collaborators. We are meant to work with others, whether you are leading others, helping others, inspiring others or building a new equitable future with others. What co-creative projects will you accomplish this season that serve as solid foundations for the rest of the year?
An easy buoyant day to get tasks done and commit in writing.
Venus trine Mars
Values driven experiences fruit
What feels so wonderfully aligned in your business?
Venus in Capricorn is in flow with Mars in Taurus. What you love and what you love doing feel so aligned today. Revel in this ease and show your gratitude.
Mercury conjunct Saturn
Say more with less
What boundaries must you express and in what way?
Mercury and Saturn blend together at Aquarius 2° a bit after Venus and Mars trine. You may have more impact with saying less. Or you may be asked to draw the line in expressing your boundaries. Or you may not be able to say all you want to say. You can still express your thoughts, a little goes a long way.
After our Great Jupiter/Saturn conjunction a few weeks ago during solstice, we were being asked to evolve our capacity to grow. Part of that growth requires a trellis, a framework or structure to define our growth. This is where you get to state these structures and limits to define your commitment – all necessary to grow.
Where does Aquarius 2° fall in your chart? The house in which it sits is where in your life and business are being asked to state your boundaries.
One of the better days to launch a marketing campaign or list builder
Mercury conjunct Jupiter
Declare your dreams
What do you want to share online to reach a wider audience?
A great day to share your vision with the wider world.
Mercury and Jupiter blend together at Aquarius 5° a few days after we were being asked to state our boundaries. Now we are being asked, within those boundaries how we want to expand. How we want to reach and live our vision through our work.
A few days ago you got clear with the frameworks and structures on which you would direct and focus your growth. Now you are free to state how big you want to grow and explore.
Share this future facing vision with the world. Your capacity to hold this space is as big as you believe is possible.
Where does Aquarius 5° fall in your chart? The house in which it sits is where in your life and business are being asked to state your vision of expansive growth and vision in your business.
New Moon Capricorn 23°
Today I plant the seeds to define redefine success and my ultimate mission in my business and brand
What does success now mean to you?
Look back to this time a year ago, the world as we knew it began to unravel and come to a standstill. And now we are ready to move forward; ready to continue to dismantle the old while putting in the new framework for an equitable future.
This is where your business comes in. The cosmos wants you, spiritual entrepreneur, to reinvision what success in business means to you. You get to decide the impact you want to have, the structures and systems for sustainable growth, and the future forward vision you’d like to live in your business.
You are the creator of your ultimate mission.
Decide today what success and value looks like to you in your spiritual business. On your individualistic terms.
Where does Capricorn 23° fall in your chart? The house in which it sits is where you are being asked to redefine your version of success and ultimate mission.
Mercury square Uranus
A day to take a risk and ask for something out of the ordinary
What experiences are shaking up your thoughts of change?
Mercury in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus create tension. A tension that wants to be integrated, a tension that encourages growth of something even better. Mercury, our communications and Uranus, our need to innovate will square off today, possibly triggering an unexpected outcome. It’s an electrifying day to say something unique.
Saturn in orb square with Uranus
Strains on systems
- What limits can you create so you can work with more ease?
- What needs simplifying in your business?
- What can you pare down or delegate?
You feel at a breaking point.
Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus will square exactly in a month on February 17 but the energy starts now. Your boundaries, structures and systems start to feel at the brink. Innovation is needed to be more effective and sustainable. Collectively we can look at all the social issues that still need just solutions or the environment that is on the brink unless we each do our part. In our businesses we can feel this as the need to simplify. To focus on the things that will make the biggest impact and to work in a way that feels sustainable. We are all past the need to hustle. And in 2021 we get to choose how we repair the system, integrate the things we need to evolve and keep and say goodbye to the outdated.
Mars square Saturn
Slow down to shore up structures
What does this discomfort want you to understand about your limits?
Mars in Taurus creates friction with Saturn in Aquarius. You may feel like you’re stuck between a hard place and a rock. Mars wants to drive forward and Saturn can put on the brakes. No one will be able to run away from this discomfort. And perhaps there is something to be learned. What does this discomfort tell you about your limits and your drive? Similar to a 1Q Moon phase where experiences may drive you to take action, notice here. Be easy on yourself and others. We are all in this together. Breath into any frustrations.
Venus trine Uranus
Manifest up-leveled resources
What have you manifested and can you recognize it’s value?
Venus in Capricorn flows with Uranus in Taurus. While a bit earlier today you may have felt frustrated, it wasn’t all for naught. Venus can represent our ability to attract the right people and the right resources. And when Uranus, the energy of innovation and surprise is in harmony, unexpected surprises can manifest, especially with your values, what you value and your relationships. Now the key is…can you recognize this blessing and harness it. If you don’t recognize it, it may go wasted.
A great day to empower yourself and others
Uranus direct Taurus 6°43′
Notice the breakthroughs
What breakthroughs and awakening have you witnessed in society, your community and in yourself?
Uranus is so far out that we don’t normally feel this energy on a personal level. But as Uranus changes gears and now moves forward in the sky you’ve had some breakthroughs in your businesses’ role in the greater society. How you are meant to share your unique view and help bring in the new. What is your role and what is the new thing that you are here to help build?
Look to Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius of 6°. If you have any planets in those signs those energies are going to want to shake things up in your innovative role.
Sun conjunct Pluto
Vital power to transform
What superpowers of yours are being transformed and awakened?
It’s a big day energetically. The Sun and Pluto blend their superpowers. You feel free of past conformity and recognize your expertise and ability to make change through your work. Get clear on this super power and work that super power into your business so you can create more opportunities to work in your expertise and make a bigger impact.
A good time to reflect and notice themes coming forward
Mercury enters shadow
Notice your thoughts about the future
What comes up that requires rethinking your role in your communities over the next few weeks?
As we are facing the future and rethink our role in bringing a new ideal, you are rethinking your part and the part you want to play in the future. Over the next few weeks before Mercury appears to go backwards, pay attention to ideas that don’t fit you anymore, and reflect into themes that want to be reorganized in your life and business.
This is the first pass in this area of your chart during the cycle. Feel into what needs re-examination in your business around the theme of Mercury and Aquarius. Look at your chart between Aquarius 11° – 26°. Energies or planets you may have in this area of your chart will want to add their voice to your reorganization. The house(s) that contain this area of your chart is where in your business you are being asked to rethink and reorganize.
A good time to strategize your tech
Jupiter square Uranus
Cultivate technical progress
What (technical) upgrades do you need to initiate in order to cultivate ease of manifesting your vision?
Jupiter in Aquarius creates tension with Uranus in Taurus. When these planets meet they symbolize technical progress. And sometimes progress is simplifying and streamlining. Or choosing technology for your business that does a specific thing versus an unruly platform that has way too many options. Sometimes progress is saying goodbye to the shiniest new tech in favor for old fashioned ancient tech. With an energy like this you are being asked to reflect on what isn’t working, to get rid of what you don’t want and to keep what will enable you to innovate.
Read more in the 2021 Biz StarCast Overview about this big shift.
Sun enters Aquarius
Creating tomorrow for social impact
What do you want to create in your community and society?
It’s Aquarius season! A time to create the future now. A time to create your communities and to strengthen your commitment to social impact.
The sun will be joining Jupiter and Saturn already in future facing and humanitarian Aquarius.
We have clarified our structures and sustainability (Saturn) and our expansive vision (Jupiter) – now it’s time to create with our creative brilliance.
A harmonious time for Air signs (Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini) and a productive season for Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius).
Inauguration Day in the US
2Q Moon Taurus 1°02′
Take steady patient action
What is one step in your business you will take to build peace?
The United States has quite a bit of rebuilding to do and today a new office begins. An evolution in leadership, one that feels more representative of the population. And on quarter moon, we are all being asked to take peaceful action with the moon in Taurus.
Mars conjunct Uranus
New motivations for evolved resource management
What initiative will you take for resource management in your environment?
Mars and Uranus meet at Taurus 6° blending drive and innovation together. But the drive isn’t unbridled when it’s in Taurus. We are being asked to motivate for a sustainable environment. Taurus represents the health of our land’s physical resources. What motivates you to manage your resources?
Where does Taurus 6° fall in your chart? The house in which it sits is where in your life and business are being asked to manage the resources in your life and business.
Mars square Jupiter
Slow down to see social impact possibilities
What peaceful protest can you make that will have impact in your life and business?
Mars in Taurus creates friction with Jupiter in Aquarius.
You may feel motivated to take action and Jupiter is accelerating that drive.
The best way to motivate now is through peaceful protest.
You will be asked to take a stand and share your peaceful vision. Are you ready?
Sun conjunct Saturn
Focus and sustain your energy
A good day to take a break
What can you do to take a little break to rejuvenate?
Your creative vibrancy has some boundaries. Sometimes the best way to continue is to rest so you can focus your energy, you’ve been working hard.
Taking a break to regenerate can do wonders for your creativity.
Where does Aquarius 4° fall on your chart? The house in which it sits is where you are being asked to focus and sustain in your business.
Sun square Uranus
Creative energies acted upon to break through
What happens if you drill into the intensity of the problem a bit more?
Sun in Aquarius creates tension with Uranus in Taurus. External experiences can change your plans for the better. Be open to the changes.
A great day to let go of the past
Full Moon Leo 9°
Today I celebrate how I impact others, grow confident and passionate while I let go of ideas of being an outsider that hold me back.
Our first and oh so powerful Full Moon in 2021.
What thoughts about being an outsider need to let go so you can see that your uniqueness is actually your powerful relationships?
This full moon is all about unlocking your confidence and joy so you can impact others to shine brighter. You are meant to lead a heart-driven life and partner with your most aligned co creators. Phew, the energy is huge!
The moon will sit opposite the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn all in Aquarius, with Mars and Uranus sitting half way to form a perfect triangle (aka T-Square) and Venus cozied up to powerful Pluto.
You are here to impact others to shine brighter. And you are here to do this together with powerful co creators.
What holds you back from leading in this heart-centered way? The full moon will illuminate this for you.
- Can you be an individual and concrete?
- Can you lead from the heart and share power?
- Can you shine brightly while empowering others to shine brightly?
YES you can.
Notice what is being illuminated in your role of transformative relationships. (Venus / Pluto conjunction)
Notice what energizes you and cultivate that inspiration as your creativity expands. (Sun / Jupiter conjunction)
A great day to say goodbye to relationships that don’t serve to make space for empowered partnerships.
Venus conjunct Pluto
Cocreators that build together have power
What is now illuminated about your role in transformative relationships?
Sun conjunct Jupiter
What do you feel energized to create today?
A great day to clear your calendar
Mercury Stations Retrograde
What can you do to make space in your day?
Mercury steps on the brakes and appears to come to a stop before shifting backwards. The degree on which Mercury puts on the brakes will feel intense for this day or two. Get curious with this intensity, it’s giving you a clue at what needs to be reorganized.
Where does Aquarius 26° fall in your chart? The house in which it sits is where you are being asked to create more space and room for misunderstandings.
Mercury Retrograde Aquarius
Rethinking equitable success
What needs shifting and rethinking in your business about social equity?
We are here, our first of three Mercury Retrograde cycles in 2021.
From January 30, 2021 – February 20, 2021 Mercury will highlight Aquarius 26° – Aquarius 11° so that you can rethink equitable success and your role in creating this new future.
This is a time for reflection so you can redo, rethink, reorganize, and refine parts of your life and business.
- What does social equity mean to you?
- How do you use your privilege to empower others?
- What role do you want your business to have in this new future?
- How are you helping your community to achieve their dreams?
- What does success mean to you?
This starts the three week period that Mercury appears to move backwards, retracing its steps. Time to re-examine, rethink and reorganize.
Notice what needs reflection in your business around the theme of Mercury and Aquarius. Look at your chart between Aquarius 11° – 26°. Energies or planets you may have in this area of your chart will want to add their voice to your reorganization. The house(s) that contain this area of your chart is where in your business you are being asked to rethink and reorganize.
