The year 2020 has been an earthquake, and 2021 still appears bumpy! Hold on tight.
Jupiter and Saturn Conjunct in Aquarius
The biggest cosmic feature of 2021 is Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius. At the end of 2020 and into early 2021, Jupiter and Saturn—the two planets of law and order—are conjunct in rebellious and slightly radical Aquarius. Like the sun and moon on the New Moon, when two planets conjunct, they begin a new chapter. This is, indeed, the start of a 30-year revolution and the birth of a new perception of community and social responsibility.
Many questions will arise. How important is my community? How can I get closer to my soul group? What is our philosophy, and what do we stand for?
Since Aquarius is very opinionated, there is a danger of potential fanaticism and conflicts around politics, world-views, or religion. In addition, there are many instances in history during which this Great Conjunction brought about strife, which Rav Berg analyzed very well in the book, “Cosmos and Consciousness.”
Following the gathering of the malefics at the start of 2020 (Pluto, Saturn, South Node, and Jupiter joining the group), a plague broke out, and many governments continued to struggle in a very dramatic fashion—a cycle which began when Pluto entered Capricorn back in 2008, and decay became more apparent in corrupted systems.
Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Aquarius
Jupiter and Saturn induce a more global consciousness to truly think about the bigger picture. But this is just a taste, a preparation for the big social and political work we’ll need to do when Pluto enters Aquarius in a few years (from 2023 to 2044). The last occurrence was actually from 1777 to 1798, when Americans labored to form a country that embodied its constitutional vision statement, and when the French Revolution took place.
Mars Conjunct Uranus and Venus Conjunct Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter
The New Gregorian Year starts in a rather unstable way: Mars forms an unusual alliance with change-maker and rebellious Uranus. The pair will be squaring Jupiter from January 20th until the 23rd, just as the U.S. inaugurates a president. The new ways and the old ways will collide and try to win over the other.
In addition, Mercury will go retrograde from January 30th to February 20th, allowing us to reorganize and repair. Our community will benefit from loving and compassionate Venus as it conjuncts Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter through mid-February.
Mercury Enters Aquarius
February ends as Mercury enters Aquarius and gives voice to the Jupiter–Saturn debate. Great care should be taken to be precise with our words. When Venus conjuncts Neptune in March, relationships and creativity will be back on the front burner.
In April, our renewed enthusiasm will push us towards revolutionary adventures as Venus conjuncts Uranus. This can also bring discontent, and towards the end of April, watch for a political crackdown or relationship issues as Venus squares Saturn and Pluto goes retrograde. It’s time to build real security.
Jupiter Hops in and out of Pisces and Aquarius. Jupiter and Saturn Square Uranus.
Jupiter enters Pisces on May 13th, goes retrograde on June 20th, and re-enters Aquarius from July 28th to December 28th. Jupiter and Saturn will both square rebellious and change-inducing Uranus throughout the year, keeping politics restless and helping us continue our evolution. Transformation is inevitable, but which way that change goes will be up to us.
Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius
A lunar eclipse will occur in Sagittarius on May 26th and a solar eclipse in Gemini on June 10th. Let’s get closer to people who are different from us and be prepared to step way outside of our comfort zone.
Between May 6th, 2020 and January 18th, 2022, we will see the south node of karma move into Sagittarius, the sign that rules the history of NASA, Pakistan, India, and Hong Kong. Get ready for some “giant leaps” in space with women in charge. Prepare for a completely new world of trade and travel too.
Retrograde Season: Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus, and Mercury
Every summer brings retrogrades, and this one brings quite a lineup: Pluto goes retrograde April 27th, Saturn on May 23rd, Jupiter on June 20th, Neptune on June 25th, and Uranus on August 19th. Mercury retrogrades January 30th through February 20th, May 29th through June 22nd, and September 26 through October 18th. These retrogrades ask us not to push forward but to hold our ground, renew, garden, and review the events of the year. Take time to investigate, fix mistakes, clarify problems, and fine-tune future plans.
We get a fresh start on September 6th. Don’t get discouraged if old problems need our attention (ones we thought we’d already conquered) as October starts with six planets and a few asteroids retrograde. If conflicts are not resolved now, they may come to a boil after Mars enters Scorpio and opposes energizing Uranus through November. Come back to that deep Aquarian consciousness and remember that we are all one.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
The arrival of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is a real relief for you! The weight you felt on your shoulders in 2020 is dissipating. Everything is less tedious and easier, even if life isn’t totally calm.
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Pluto will transform you in-depth, and Uranus urges you to free yourself from your shackles and stand out. You continue to surprise, but not everyone likes it. People will try to slow you down and put obstacles in your way.
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Jupiter and Saturn bring you opportunities in all fields. You feel protected and much more praised than in 2020. Uranus provoked setbacks that delay your progress but do not question your progress.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION
Neptune continues to inspire you in your creations, AND you can rely on your intuition. Pluto and Uranus create more independence and self-confidence. On the other hand, certain events block your ambitions and desires. Hang in there!
Venus in Sagittarius is much better for your love life, and you begin this year with plenty of opportunities and success in all that you do. You’ll see great progress in income thanks to Venus in Pisces and Mercury in Aquarius.
You’ll experience a boost in willpower and self-confidence, and further opportunities may present themselves to you thanks to the leadership qualities. There may be a desire to turn inward to recalibrate and relax.
When your mind is calm and your health is strong, you’ll be chasing excitement. By the summer, you’ll seek out change, which may manifest as a desire for a new home or a change in environment as Venus moves into Cancer, the sign of home and family.
In August, your potential as a leader begins to shine through. But you may have to face a few challenges in order to get there. Reflecting on your mental and emotional health will help. September brings fiery energy, so beware of your temper. This is another period of great opportunity and victory. As of October, you will experience great success in all you do, even with some personal struggles.
As we move towards the end of the year, you’ll need to focus more on yourself and tune out those who may not be supportive of you. You may identify with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, moving into Aquarius. Bonds will be solidified. There may be some minor conflicts in your romantic life. You’ll be interested in starting something new and may become very excited by a project or goal that propels you into 2022. All areas of your life are doing well.
This year begins with a little bit of a lazy start as you struggle to concentrate. Committing to regular meditation can help you in 2021.
People are starting to notice you at work.
Spring is a good time to reflect on your health and make plans for overseas adventures, as well as possibly re-entering the world of education. Do not be afraid to dream too big. This is a wonderful time for working on communication skills that will enhance your career, friendships, and romantic life. Summer suggests parenthood for some of you!
You’ll also notice success manifesting from your educational achievements. This is a wonderful time for those of you who work in the media or performing arts. The fall is a little more complex as this can be a period of some conflict or challenge.
As the year ends, you may feel low in confidence and have a few last-minute problems to solve before going into 2022. Your key focus should be making sure that your health is strong as you end this year so you can go into the next year at your very best!
Gemini, you begin the year 2021 with a new arrival in your life—perhaps a new friend, lover, or even a baby. This year is truly about new beginnings! You may have a sense of anxiety about the future, and there could be some minor health problems. Holistically, this is probably all interconnected and if you quiet your mind, you may find your physical symptoms vanish. Make sure you ground yourself in the now and take this year one day at a time, one month at a time. Try to tune into your element of air, and you’ll find it far easier to flow.
Your interest in spiritual matters is elevated, and it’s a great time to seek a partner in life. Professionally you see a lot of growth and success thanks to your inventive and creative ideas. Even if you lack clarity in other areas, your ability to focus at work is good for you, professionally.
Take time to explore and see the world. Be mindful of accidents and injuries, reconnect with nature. You will develop a keen interest in all things creative, especially the performing arts. Social connection is at its peak. You will find yourself turning to your teachers for lessons in truth and wisdom.
Make a strong to-do list to get your work done. You could well witness a big transformation in yourself. The end of the year brings success and financial prosperity. You may end the year with some laziness and lack of motivation, but you will be supported by others and will feel comfortable in their counsel. Friendships and romances become strongly established. You will leave the year behind, feeling content and sure about who you want in your world.
As you are a sign prone to excesses, it’s important to start this year by curbing your indulgences and adopting a workout regime to get you out of the fog. Take some time to allow focus and clarity to settle.
Professionally, the year starts brilliantly and will extend to a very prosperous time. You may find yourself spending too much money, though. Trust your instincts and perhaps think about starting your own business as you feel the need for greater autonomy and independence.
This is also a fantastic period for love. You feel attractive. There are occasional low points, but this is due to the intrinsic nature of your sign; ruled by the moon, you wax and wane. Try to work on your ups and downs this year. There could be a tendency to fight it, but there is nothing to gain from that.
You will slowly settle in. October presents a wonderful period for your love life. At work, you may seek change, as your confidence soars. This could be a time for seeking and exploring other options with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, moving into Aquarius in the fall. Let the year guide you!
You jump into this year feeling blessed with many opportunities. This is a wonderful phase for those with artistic inclinations, although financially, you may start off a little low. But there is a search for growth and purpose. The focus and priority this year should be health.
There can be some challenges at work, which will really test and push you. Be your own best friend, and have your own back. You’ll see that you are stronger than you think you are. In the spring, your hard work pays off, and you seem to have the Midas touch, transforming your career in powerful and inventive ways.
By July, you may need to address difficulties in your love life, including little flairs of temper or quarrels. Addressing your own ego and how it gets in your way may come up. This is a period of self-reflection and re-education.
September brings a rise in income, but you must analyze your own spending habits if you are to do well. As the year closes, your personal life will be smooth as silk, and you’ll enjoy mental peace, which promotes good health. Your financial status may need a little tweaking, so tying together all loose ends is how you will round off 2021.
You begin this year with a desire to pursue education and to enrich your mind. It may come with a lack of concentration in the office, and you may need to spend time re-centering yourself and returning to spiritual practices. Take some time to do this daily.
The spring will carry some tensions and high expenses, but also plenty of professional success and financial gain. Although, you will need to work very hard and put your foot on the accelerator in the workplace. You’ll be glad you did, for a salary hike or promotion are in the cards. Your seniors are watching you as you work, and they like what they see.
As Mars moves into Leo, you may find your mind diverting towards destructive topics and need to refocus and discipline yourself. Towards the end of this year, you may need to rekindle romantic opportunities; love is a fire that needs to be fed, or it starves. With Jupiter moving into Aquarius in late November, make sure that you offer up plenty of devotion and kindness to your partner. Continue to make an effort for one another—you’ll be rewarded for doing so.
Otherwise, all is well, and you end the year with a feeling of warmth, accomplishment, and contentment.
You begin this year with very positive energy that prompts you to get out into the world and explore. This is a period of strong energy and motivation to keep you empowered.
Your financial condition is stable, and your career will experience a surge of growth. By the spring, some of you may be new parents, and there may be some tension in your love life that needs addressing. There may be some setbacks in love, usually because of ego.
Some obstacles may present themselves at work in the spring. Simply focus and tackle any upcoming issues in a quick and efficient way. If you lead a team, people feel very comfortable and content in your presence. You can steer the ship in the best direction.
July is a very strong month for you in terms of money, and this marks a wonderful time to begin investing your cash so that it can work for you. This marks a very auspicious time for marriage and a great opportunity for singles to find love. This year marks a perfect time for the manifestation of dreams.
In October, you may feel low, tired, and depleted, so focus inward and fall back on grounding practices such as meditation and yoga.
Avoid being perceived as aggressive. It’s, perhaps, not a bad thing when locking down a deal, but it can have consequences in other areas of our lives! End the year reflecting on what you have achieved and what is still left to be done so that you have a sense of completion.
You start this year with strong powers of innovation that help generate quite a good income for you. When you listen to your intuition and tap into your gut instincts, something truly transformative can occur.
This is also a great time for those of you battling unemployment, as there will be a great many opportunities available to you.
This is a very special time for marriage or entering into relationships with that someone special. You will be drawn to introversion sometimes, and this can be transformative for Scorpio natives as you need time to reflect in order to know what is the best way to move forward.
Professionally you may find that the fruits of your labor are delayed. Mentally and emotionally, you may feel a little low and depleted of self-confidence. There are a great number of opportunities for those of you seeking change. This continues well into August with a period of tremendous success and achievement.
You end the year on a powerful note with your finances, personal life, and career in order. This year will deepen your wisdom, compassion, and understanding of life, and as you reflect, you’ll feel a lot of joy and self-worth when you consider all you’ve achieved.
Dear Sagittarius! It is impossible to keep you down for too long. The year of 2021 begins with many opportunities—union, educational pursuits, and new career options. If you are worried about something, make sure to share the burden with loved ones.
It’s very likely you will resume traveling. Harmony between family members, children, and friends is very strong, and you will enjoy how beneficial this period will be for your connections with others. This can definitely be a time of correcting and healing.
It is possible that people will be jealous of you; try not to be influenced by it. You may find that you are working very hard for little reward, but you should persevere. Saving this year is advisable, as well as devising new ways to make money. There could even be an inheritance.
Romantically things move forward beautifully, and by the summer, you might be thinking about marriage. On the flipside, safeguard your health. The pressure at work can be extreme, so make sure you balance your professional life with your personal one. Loved ones will bring plenty of relief.
Be creative, and remember that anything is possible!
The year of 2021 begins with you requiring the assistance of others, which will be both challenging and wonderful for a sign who likes to do it all alone.
You will learn to rely on others more and realize how much you can achieve when you collaborate. This is an excellent time for the ones amongst you who have an eye for fashion or work in the industry. It is also a wonderful period for friendship and expansion. Moving past any shyness will be important.
Your professional energy is up! However, you should be cautious about investments.
This is a great period to purchase a new home or finally move towards that goal.
It’s very important this year to take a look at what is and isn’t working in your life currently and change your habits accordingly. For example, trying to find relief in smoking, drinking, and partying.
At work, your focus and discipline will lead you to a promotion. And you will generally feel excited about things. Relationships and marriages will prosper, and this can be a time in which new love is found for those of you who are single.
There is a sense of completion around long-standing tasks. The end of this year is positive. But remember to be cautious financially and professionally. When your mood is a little low, remember friends are never too far.
The beginning of 2021 is a great time to jump into something new, and it’s exciting!
Professionally and financially, you are in good stead during the year, and you will be at your creative best. You will excel at work when you embrace your intelligence. You may spend a lot of money on travel, but there will be plenty of cash flow and new ideas. Saving may be a little difficult at the start of 2021, but do try to set aside some money for a rainy day.
Your wellbeing will require attention. A tendency to feel lazy and a general lack of motivation can be high at the start of this year, but creating some good daily habits can make a big difference.
The spring will be financially beneficial, but you need to keep your focus and become more proactive, as it will help with some struggles in life. This is a period of prosperity, enabling you to live the good life. This is also the time for a transfer or promotion at work. If you seek a change of environment, go for it now as many opportunities will present themselves. Growth is likely, especially if you are focusing on your own business or a side project.
Beware of August, when there can be misunderstandings and challenges across several areas of life that require concentration and forethought. Financial gains and marriage are likely in September, though.
This year is a great time to start a new project, and you will have plenty of people to support you. The year ends on a confident note, as you witness plenty of professional and financial growth.
The year 2021 starts with others reaching out to you and providing advice regarding your career. Be open and receptive, especially when the advice comes from those with a strong understanding of the industry. The year will open up with a huge change, such as shifting career or beginning a relationship. This is a time of agreement and peace. Let yourself feel, and your emotions will move through you.
There will be a sense of being cosmically guided. This is a great time for falling in love and exploring romantic opportunities. Marriage or a union is in the cards. Your personal life feels smooth and content, but you need to learn valuable lessons about how to communicate in relationships.
Your wellbeing will be a bit up and down this year, but meditation and grounding practices will help you develop balance.
Look at your expenses and try to be cautious with your savings. The end of the year will be great for profit, but you may witness an unexpected turn in your personal life. Your ability to float and flow will serve you. There will be opportunities for new careers, hobbies, and experiences—a new beginning overall.
