And Here Comes 2021!

The focus of Dayology is the set of seven energies which differentiate the seven days of the week. On these seven planetary forces are explored in every way imaginable. Back in December 2017 Looking to the Future attempted to predict the nature of the three following years. Never before had the astrological principles of Dayology been used to predict the primary energy and activity of the whole period of a year for such a massive number of people. The results naturally took the form of overall trends rather than actual events.

Did you know that that everyone on this planet does not celebrate the first day of the year on January 1st? According to various world cultures assign different dates to this occasion. Many ancient civilizations used a day in late March to set out new crops. Wiccans and pagans use the Winter Solstice as the beginning of the next yearly cycle. The first day of the Chinese New Year occurs on the second new moon after the winter solstice. The reason we rely on January 1st is because Julius Caesar tinkered around with the Roman Calendar.

Whatever date we use to start the new year, we
have a certain feeling about our planet returning to the
same place in the sky each year. It’s not just that we are
one year older on our birthday or one year more bonded
by another wedding anniversary, but in an odd way
we find ourselves back to where we started and ready
to take another 365 day ride. Maybe we will get it better
this time around with more success, more awareness
and more compassion than ever before.

As a rule the January 1st New Year follows the sequence of the seven day week, except when there is a leap year, which gives us an extra day in late February to catch up. Since the same date is used each year, the Capricorn zodiac energy always sets the structural tone of the year. It’s the reason we make resolutions to overcome poor habits and improve our character.

In 2020 New Year’s Day fell on a Wednesday which is ruled by Mercury. No other celestial body could have described the intricate workings of the medical system that developed due to the pandemic. Through it millions of Covid-19 patients were treated and a vaccine was developed. The smallest of details like mask wearing, disinfecting and social distancing became of prime importance. There was also a greater reliance upon information technology as we worked, shopped and educated ourselves from home. Who could have ever anticipated a world wide contagion, but Mercury consciousness certainly helped to save the day.

In 2021 New Years Day falls on a Friday which is ruled by Venus. The pandemic is not likely to evaporate overnight but a change of administration may bring equitable health policies and financial relief. Hopefully we will see less contention between the segments of society as we welcome the expression of all voices. Our concepts of pleasure may be altered as indulgences and privileges go to the few leaving the simplest of diversions to the rest of us. Sustainable life styles will continue to develop as we turn our attention back to climate change. The arts of fashion, music and dance will respond creatively to the changing social expectations.

Happy New Year!
