This week’s astrological events to note: The fiery Full Moon in Leo, and the year’s first Mercury retrograde.

<<<<< 点击阅读中文版本 >>>>>

Full Moons bring us the energies of culmination and illumination. Leo is a fixed Fire sign and the least hot-tempered of the Fire signs, but this Full Moon in Leo is square Mars (planetary ruler of conquest) and opposite Jupiter (planetary ruler of expansion).

So on 28 or 29 Jan, depending where you live in the world, the Full Moon in Leo will offer you a boost of energy and self-confidence to carry out your plans. However, the influence of Mars and Jupiter could cause some to become over-confident or over-aggressive. (This week also brings a slightly heightened risk of arguments that can spiral out of control.) Be sure that your plans are solidly structured before you manifest them into reality. And be mindful that not all fights are worth picking – keep your focus on your goals, and don’t waste your energy otherwise.

From 30 Jan to 20 Feb, we have our first Mercury retrograde of 2021. Mercury rules travel, communication, and technology; when it retrogrades, back up your computers, avoid signing new contracts or purchasing new electronic products, and watch out for hiccups in travel plans (this includes your daily commute to work!).

Mercury will retrograde mostly through Aquarius, the sign which rules community, humanitarian causes, and modern technologies (especially social media). Be very mindful not to get involved in online disputes on any social media platform – these could get very ugly – and take good care of your tech devices.

Onward to the reading!


LEFT: KNIGHT OF WANDS. The Knight of Wands usually indicates fast, decisive action or movement. It’s associated with passion, creativity, and courage. When this Knight appears, there could be a sudden arrival (or departure) of a factor or dynamic in a given situation. 

This Knight can also herald a rise in impulsivity and reactivity. Be on the lookout for quick tempers, hasty ambitions and rushed passions – all of which could lead you down the wrong path if temperance and wisdom are not first consulted. 

MIDDLE: EIGHT OF SWORDS. You could be feeling stuck when the Eight of Swords appears. This card represents a situation where insufficient information or confidence is holding you back from making decisions. Be careful that you are not allowing a negative mindset to trap you into thinking your hands are tied. Consider other perspectives. Could there be another way out of the situation you’re in? Or perhaps another way of looking at it?

Remember this wisdom from Wayne Dyer: “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

You have the power to shift the energies in a challenging situation by consciously transforming the way you perceive it, and the way you perceive your own role in it. 

RIGHT: THE HIEROPHANT REVERSED. The Hierophant, when upright, represents the power and authority of structured organisations. It’s all about following the rules and honouring those in charge. 

Once it’s upside down, though, creativity and curiosity become the norm. Feel free to rock the boat, ask tough questions, and think out of the box when generating innovative solutions. 

Remember: there are no sacred cows with the reversed Hierophant. What’s sacred is your soul, your spirit, your right to choose and pursue happiness. Move forward with courage, and all the best to you. 





It’s said you’re rich – in your dreams.
Your fame is inevitably hollow. 
It’s hard to imagine that faraway things can be real. 
Only a benefactor’s help will put a smile on your face.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)

When this lot is drawn, you are advised to keep yourself grounded in reality, and to avoid pursuing false hopes or vain delusions. Don’t fret – assistance is on its way. Things will eventually get better as they always do. That said, manage your expectations wisely, especially with regards to future plans.

Remember: a delay is not necessarily a rejection. If you’re willing to think out of the box and enlist the help of others, you might not even be delayed at all.

It’s time to get creative.

Have a great week ahead!
