2020 will go down in history as the year the world changed due to Covid-19. Hot on the heels of 2020 and its startling astrological aspects, the astrology of the year 2021 is characterized by an ongoing conflict between the status quo versus progressive reform.
As we struggle to put our societies back together again, we may struggle to know which way to choose. Do we rebuild what was there before? Or do we try something entirely new?
A rare Saturn-Uranus square, last experienced in 1999-2000, becomes exact three times, in February, June and December. Each time, Saturn in Aquarius urges us to stick with what we know, while Uranus in Taurus demands full-scale structural change. Geo-politically, as well as personally, events in February, June and December are likely to reverberate for longer than we will be able to foresee at the time.
Another striking factor for the year 2021 is Jupiter’s brief transit through Pisces from mid-May to late July, in retrograde motion for the second half of that period. Jupiter in Aquarius has focused us relentlessly on social reform, group goals and the necessary ‘we’re all in this together’ view of a society facing a global crisis.
When Jupiter shifts into Pisces, however, we may start to understand how an intuitive and heart-centered, compassionate view is necessary if we’re going to recover our health, our economies, and our own disrupted lives. When Jupiter returns, retrograde to Aquarius, we may have to retrace some of 2020’s steps for a while.
Indeed, this retracing of steps and recognition that ‘we’ve been here before’ is a key theme for the year. We know what the status quo feels like, with all of its benefits and all of its faults – so the three Saturn-Uranus squares present us with difficult choices and a potential fear of the unknown.
There are four eclipses in 2021, the first two and last of which occur across the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. The Lunar Eclipse in late May in Sagittarius and the Solar Eclipse in early June in Gemini reflect the interplay between ‘truth’ or wisdom and fast facts, and reminds us that no amount of news-twisting, fake news, media manipulation or hyperbole can obscure the essential truths of life.
There’s a balance needed here too between teaching and learning; it’s important to understand that we can all be teachers, but we must also all be learners. Nobody holds a monopoly on wisdom, especially not while we’re all re-learning “normality”. Events around this eclipse may highlight the problems that can occur if we believe everything we read in the media, or, conversely, if the media is too tightly controlled and press freedom is curtailed.
The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in late November is the first Lunar Eclipse in that zodiac sign since 2004 and begins a new cycle of eclipses on the Taurus-Scorpio axis which will continue through 2022. Here, the lessons are around our practical everyday needs such as safe food, water and shelter, versus our sometimes-obsessive pursuit of more abstract desires.
It’s about getting priorities clear. No amount of navel-gazing will fix hunger, disease, poverty or environmental damage, so this eclipse highlights the need for practical, on the ground action. Shocks and surprises around this time may show us more of the consequences we can expect if we allow large parts of the world to live in misery, pollution or corruption.
It is perhaps not until Jupiter returns to Pisces, in the last few days of the year, that we will sense some light at the end of the tunnel. It’s likely that the year 2021 starts to fade a sense of idealism will prevail, together with perhaps a strengthening of compassion and goodwill towards our fellow earth inhabitants.
A belief in goodness and a trust in each other can be very healing, but Jupiter is as ever prone to excess, so this shift of zodiac sign could also, longer term, lead to a religious uprising of some kind which would undermine the widespread idealism preceding it. Indeed, the Solar Eclipse in early December in Sagittarius reminds us that ideology and zealotry can still be dangerous while the world remains in uncertain times.
During 2022, Jupiter is set to be the big hitter on the astrological scene. This optimistic giant remains in compassionate, spiritual Pisces until its arrival in Aries on May 10th. Along the way, a Jupiter-Uranus sextile on February 17th is a very good sign for populations still dealing with the fallout from Covid-19 – this is exciting, opportunistic energy with a huge emphasis on freedom.
In early March, a Capricorn stellium of Venus, Mars and Pluto focuses energy on shifting structures in society as we come to terms with necessary upheaval and the changes that the previous two years have wrought. It’s April 12th that is the standout time, however, as Jupiter forms a rare conjunction with Neptune. This conjunction itself happens every 12-13 years, but it has not occurred in spiritual Neptune since 1856. This is humankind’s chance to tap into extremely potent magical manifestation energies – inspiration abounds, and a planetary mind-shift starts to gather speed.
A few weeks later on April 30th, the second of a series of Eclipses on the Taurus-Scorpio axis focuses on the struggle between personal control versus collective consciousness and individual gain versus shared resources. Days later on May 3rd, Jupiter sextiles Pluto in a promising sign of financial recovery, before this generous giant shifts into Aries on May 10th.
While Jupiter transits Aries, we will see a much more individualistic and pioneering attitude prevailing. This is inspirational energy, yes, but it’s also angry. Change to the world during this period of 2022 will come through protest, perhaps violent at times, and through impulsive actions taken by individuals. Where rage and impulse drive change, the results may not be quite what was originally desired; there could be militaristic overtones to any unrest in this period too. There’s very much an attitude of act first, worry about the consequences later.
Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries on July 28th, but by then the potent Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 16th has sown the seeds of potential angst, revenge and resentment. A loose but intensely irritable T-square between Mercury, Mars and Neptune on October 5th hints that idealism will have lost ground over the Northern Hemisphere’s summer to those preferring swift action.
A Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 25th brings matters to a head, although with Jupiter heading backward into selfless Pisces on October 28th, calmer heads may prevail.
By the time of the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th, we may be regaining our collective sense of stability and sanity somewhat. Indeed, the very next day a fixed T-square between Mercury, Saturn and Uranus reflects a growing sense that the worst of the instability may be over.
Jupiter turns direct in Pisces in late November. This final transit through Pisces during December will reignite some of the inspiration and collective humanity felt during April’s Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, allowing for a largely peaceful and gentle festive season. However, with Jupiter re-entering Aries on December 20th, where it will stay until May 2023, the turn of the year could once again see anger-fueled unrest.
Three major astrological events will set the tone for 2023 - Saturn moving into Pisces, Pluto moving into Aquarius, and Jupiter transiting through Taurus. These big-hitting planets will define the backdrop for the year against which all other astrological events will shine.
Saturn arrives in Pisces on March 7th, 2023, for the first time since 1996. Saturn brings very grounded energy to any sign it transits - and Pisces, being a super-sensitive, nebulous Water sign benefits greatly from this firmer foundation. During this period, we are likely to see a move away from the less practical, more abstract spiritual practices that have flourished in recent decades - instead, people will begin to prefer spiritual beliefs and practices that they can actually use to improve their lives. This in turn is likely to see a gradual end to spiritual bypassing, as we are forced to take more responsibility for our spiritual choices.
Pisces energy has strong links to mental health, escapism, and addiction, and with Saturn in Pisces, we may see long-overdue efforts to better understand addiction and mental health crises, with more help made available. Pisces also rules the entertainment industry, so we may see a tightening of rules and regulations in showbiz, perhaps especially in the adult entertainment industry. We can also expect to feel less inclined to believe conspiracy theories - because Saturn demands facts and evidence rather than gut feelings.
On March 23rd, Pluto moves into Aquarius for the first time since 1798. This transformational planet’s last journey through Aquarius saw the Industrial Revolution, the French Revolution, and the Age of Enlightenment - it was certainly a time of major social change. This new transit of Aquarius is also likely to be era-defining; some believe that the entrance of Pluto into Aquarius marks the true beginning of the Age of Aquarius.
Pluto is the planet of control and power, and Aquarius is a sign that trades in ideas, vision, and innovation. Although Pluto won’t settle fully into Aquarius until 2024, due to its retrograde motion in 2023, we can expect the next 19 years to involve a struggle centered around the ‘information is power’ concept. Who holds this power? What happens if we restrict information - or share it more widely? Aquarius energy also focuses on freedom and individuality, but Pluto, here, is likely to curtail freedoms in some way. This is likely to pan out as a conflict between an individual’s rights and freedoms versus what is best for the collective good of humanity.
On May 16th, Jupiter leaves go-getting Aries for the solid, stable, practical realities offered by Taurus. This transit is packed with realism, above all else. We best make progress by having crystal clear goals and firm plans when Jupiter is in Taurus. Taking things step-by-step will lead to the best results - as opposed to Jupiter in Aries, when trying to run before you could walk was often a good idea.
Taurus is a deeply hedonistic sign and Jupiter, here, can be prone to excess, so there should be plenty of sensual pleasure ahead in 2023. However, some will choose a simpler, leaner life, and will embody this transit through downsizing and living more within their - and the planet’s - means.
Spiritually, Jupiter expresses our beliefs and our higher consciousness, and when this planet transits Taurus, many of us will choose to embed spirituality more deeply into our everyday lives and routines, rather than seeing it as a separate part of life.
Even though Taurus energy is strong and stable, it’s also sometimes stuck and stubborn. When Jupiter transits Taurus, a wait-and-see approach to life can lead to serious inertia, so we will all need to keep moving as 2023 develops.
2021 sees three Saturn-Uranus squares – a major aspect in astrology which last occurred in 1999-2000. For you, Aries, these squares reveal a tension between your own values, the values of your social group, and society’s imposed values. February, June and December will be particular crunch points in this regard, but you may struggle with being told what to think throughout the year.
Although you start 2021 with Mars, your ruling planet, in your own zodiac sign, it moves into your values zone on January 6th and the tension begins. During the second week of January, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn, all in your social zone, form tense approaches with volatile Mars and Uranus; you may start to feel pretty uncomfortable in the social sphere around this time, and once Mercury turns retrograde at the end of January, this will only intensify.
Mid-February sees the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares, Aries, so you may experience anger, fallouts with friends or exasperation with the prevailing culture at work. In early March, Mars shifts into your communication zone, making you even less likely to hold your tongue and keep the peace. At work, this could become a particular issue in mid-April, when the Sun squares up to control freak Pluto, which is transiting your career zone. It may only be your liking for the job’s secure income, boosted by Venus arriving in your money zone at this time, which stops you from doing something drastic.
You will start to feel increasingly evangelical in your views, Aries, once Jupiter shifts into Pisces and your spirituality zone on May 13th and until it turns retrograde there on June 20th. However, a Lunar Eclipse in your beliefs zone in late May, coupling with Mercury turning retrograde in your communication zone, may prevent you from speaking out as much as you would like to; the Solar Eclipse in your communication zone on June 10th backs this up too. Impatient, impulsive Mars moves into your risk zone in mid-June, just in time for the second Saturn-Uranus square, so if there is a point of no return on this issue, it’s likely to be then.
The second half of the year seems much calmer for your zodiac sign, and indeed things settle down considerably in July and August, and with Venus moving into your love zone, you should feel more at ease. However, be sure to keep communication open with your sweetheart ahead of Mercury’s retrograde in your love zone in late September.
Enjoy the relative peace while it lasts, Aries, because the Lunar Eclipse in late November occurs in your values zone, perhaps impacting dearly held opinions you have, or even on things you physically value – your bank balance. This is swiftly followed by a Solar Eclipse in early December in your learning zone, which may help you fill in the blanks about what life has been trying to teach you. The third and final Saturn-Uranus square in late December holds less tumult for you, as you have started to come to terms with its message; by the time Jupiter arrives back in your spiritual zone in the last days of 2021, you will understand how to honor your own views while also honoring others.
The first quarter of 2021 is a challenging time for your closest relationships, Aries, not least because the frustration and exasperation you feel in everyday life easily spills over into your love life too. If you are single, however, January may be a good time to meet someone who works in a similar field to you – when Venus conjuncts Pluto in your career zone, this could be an overwhelming attraction.
If your relationship has already been on the rocks for a while, February brings some stability and respite when Venus conjuncts Saturn and then Jupiter in quick succession. There’s a touch of magic available in your love horoscope too in March when Venus conjuncts Neptune. Despite the tension, Aries, romance is most definitely not dead.
However, when Mars shifts into your family zone in April, Venus too ratchets up the tension, squaring up to Pluto and then Saturn during April, highlighting jealousy from a partner who wants you to spend more time at home and less time either working, socializing or doing your own thing. A sense of vagueness and a lack of certainty in love could also be annoying for your partner late in May when Venus squares Neptune.
Although family tensions continue through June, these are more related to children and extended family than directly to your partner; indeed, there are signs of an increasingly deep connection in love during early summer, when Venus trines Jupiter, then trines Neptune, before opposing Pluto in late June and proving that love wins out over coercion every time. July, which Venus spends mostly in your dating zone, is a magical time for meeting someone new, Aries, or indeed for restoring the spark in an existing relationship.
During August, your love life feels grounded, earthy and largely contented, with Venus creating trines to Uranus, Pluto and Saturn, all of which will keep you connected with your emotions and with what matters most to your lover. During September, however, you will need to work hard to get enough quality with your sweetheart. This looks like being a busy social month for you, but Venus’ squares to Pluto, then Saturn, and later Jupiter suggest that there’s not enough focus on privacy or intimacy.
If you are single, mid-November is an excellent time for meeting someone special – but don’t try too hard! A beautiful Venus-Uranus trine in your love horoscope suggests that the most meaningful encounters will come out of the blue. Whether with this new partner or, if you are already happily in a relationship, with your existing partner, December packs a punch on the romance front. Venus conjuncts Pluto twice, once on the 11th and again on the 25th having turned retrograde. You’ll be asked to make a commitment around this time: it’s all or nothing, so are you ready to make long-term plans?
The impact of the first Saturn-Uranus square dominates January and February in astrology and, if you feel that your right to an opinion is being curtailed at work, you will feel this impact in your career too. Nonetheless, there are optimistic signs that you can get ahead during early 2021 if you can keep your emotions in check, Aries. A volatile Mars-Jupiter square in late January, for example, suggests that too much aggression will curtail your opportunities, but an inspirational Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in mid-February highlights your skills and how you can make yourself irreplaceable.
There are more positive opportunities in March, particularly when Mars trines Saturn and helps you to stabilize your position, and in April, when Mars trines Jupiter and gives a huge boost to new and exciting projects. A dramatic Sun-Uranus conjunction in late April in your money zone could even see some unexpected earnings, a windfall or a promotion of some kind.
During May, focus on taking control and responsibility where you can, Aries. A Sun-Pluto trine mid-month will help with this and should boost both your income and your status at work. If you work in the arts or the creative industries, the end of May also sees a trine between Mars and Neptune, which helps to harness the power of the imagination – although the Lunar Eclipse late in May could suggest problems with work-related travel.
Try to avoid doing anything drastic with regard to your career in June, Aries; you may well feel on edge and wound up, courtesy of the Solar Eclipse and the second Saturn-Uranus square, but with Mars in your risk zone, you won’t be thinking very clearly. This edginess continues into July, as Mars opposes Saturn and then squares Uranus; you may feel that your creativity or freedom is being restrained, but if you can hang on in there, the pieces will start to fall into place. At the end of July, an inspirational Mars-Jupiter opposition will help to re-vamp your working routines or schedules in such a way that more freedom is possible.
Late August brings an eccentric but exciting Mars-Uranus trine, activating your money zone and perhaps bringing your inspiration for a new side hustle or lucrative project. During September, the first steps with this get the go-ahead from a series of solar trines to Uranus, Pluto and Saturn, as well as Mars trines to Pluto and Saturn – this is definitely a month to set things in motion.
Later in October, however, watch out for a tense Mars-Pluto square which pits your working life against your love life; November’s Lunar Eclipse in your money zone might exacerbate this too. Don’t take unnecessary financial risks in late November or early December – Mars is set to oppose Uranus and later square Jupiter, giving you reckless thoughts, especially egged on by friends and colleagues. You round out the year with bountiful Jupiter moving into Pisces and your privacy zone in December, for the second time this year – getting some peace and quiet may help to boost your business as 2022 gets underway.
Your identity is at the very core of astrological events in 2021, Taurus. A rare Saturn-Uranus square is set to become exact three times during the year, in February, June and December, and on each occasion, it underlines the tension between who you truly are versus your public image, your status or your career.
The second week in January is when the tension begins to build in astrology, as Mercury conjuncts Saturn and Jupiter in your career zone, creating harsh aspects to Mars in your own sign, in your identity zone. When Mars conjuncts rebel planet Uranus later on January 20th, you may feel an intense desire to switch careers, or to abandon your public image in some other way – but once Mercury turns retrograde in this area on January 30th, it will be difficult for you to think straight. The first of the Saturn-Uranus squares becomes exact in mid-February, and this initial seven weeks or so of the year could feel very pressurized indeed.
March and April bring a boost to your income, Taurus supported by the arrival of Mars in your money zone, from where it trines Saturn in late March, and then Jupiter in April. These aspects should help to bring good news and potential around money and career matters. However, in late April Venus in your own zodiac sign squares up to Saturn in your status or career zone, suggesting that earning more money in and of itself is not the answer to your root unease.
In May, bountiful Jupiter moves from Aquarius and your status zone into Pisces and your community zone, urging you to aid society rather than simply look after your own interests. A late May Lunar Eclipse in your purpose zone points to an event which will underline this feeling too, as will the Mercury retrograde period in your money zone at the end of May. June 10th sees a Solar Eclipse in your money zone, putting an end once and for all to any latent materialistic feelings – just ahead of the second exact Saturn-Uranus square. Once again, Taurus, you will feel a need to change direction in order to have your working life better gel with who you truly are.
July and August give you some breathing space in astrology to work out what you want to do. Venus’ arrival in your love zone in September ensures support from your loved ones, and Mercury turning retrograde in Libra, your everyday work zone, in late September helps you to think outside the box on this front. In mid-October, Jupiter, having retrograded back into your career zone, turns direct once more, and clarity can be expected. It’s a Lunar Eclipse in late November in your own zodiac sign which will likely make up your mind on a future career direction. You’ll feel motivated to put the wheels in motion in late December, when the third Saturn-Uranus square takes effect; this is swiftly followed by the arrival of Jupiter into Pisces and your community zone for the second time this year – a more community-focused career seems a likely option, and one which will resolve your yearly career versus identity dilemma.
Early in 2021, Taurus, your love life comes under pressure simply due to the angst and unease you are feeling in the rest of your life. The Venus-Pluto conjunction in late January, for example, highlights how your career dilemma is having a somewhat negative impact on your home life and your relationships too, as tensions rise in your yearly love horoscope.
It’s not all doom and gloom, however – Venus’ conjunction to warm-hearted Jupiter in early February provides a loving base from which you can wrestle with the challenges of the first Saturn-Uranus square in mid-February. If you are in an established relationship, this period will be testing, but highly likely to survive. Make time for your sweetheart away from the intensity of working life. Mid-March, when Venus conjuncts romantic Neptune, would be a great time for nurturing your bond, perhaps by sharing charity work or community interests together for some upliftment.
The expected upturn in your business or financial interests in March and April will also help to calm and stabilize an existing relationship, with the Venus-Uranus conjunction in late April in your own sign being a particularly lovely time for a romantic occasion or special event. If you’re single, this is also a hopeful period for meeting someone new. If you are looking for love, Taurus, watch out too for a potentially dramatic attraction in the workplace, especially in early May when Venus trines Pluto.
In June, as you grapple with changing your life direction under the guidance of the Saturn-Uranus square, some gentle and inspirational aspects from Venus to Jupiter, early in the month, and then Neptune later, suggest that friends and acquaintances will be supportive and encouraging. If you are single, this could also be a moment when a friendship becomes something more.
Watch out for a lack of family time in July, Taurus, when Venus in your family zone has some tough aspects to Saturn and Uranus in your career and identity zones respectively. Mid-July, when Venus conjuncts Mars in your family zone, could be either a point of intense attraction and passion, or a point of intense anger – your choice. By the time Venus arrives in your love zone in September, your family should be fully on board with what are starting to emerge as your new career plans, although again, be careful to prioritize family and relationship time so it doesn’t get lost in the mix.
November’s Lunar Eclipse in your own zodiac sign, Taurus, and the following Solar Eclipse in your psychology zone are tied up with issues of your identity, but you will be well on the way to resolving those at this time. Venus turns retrograde in your travel zone in late December, however, so you may want to avoid travel for romantic purposes during that period. Venus is set to turn direct again on January 1st 2022, so hold off until then for a romantic break.
As already explained, your career is likely to be a central issue for you in 2021, given how tied up it is with your sense of identity and purpose. Your dissatisfaction with your current situation becomes clear in early-mid January, when Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn bump along together creating square aspects from your career zone to volatile Mars and Uranus in your own sign.
However, it’s with the first of the year’s three Saturn-Uranus squares in mid-February that the tension really becomes clear. Your initial reaction to growing disenchantment with your career may well be to simply try to earn more money. A series of supportive aspects in March and April may well enable you to do so, either through career promotion or perhaps through a lucrative side venture – but it’s not enough to ease your discomfort, as becomes clear in mid-May, when Jupiter leaves your career zone and instead turns your attention to what you’re contributing to society.
Expect the Lunar Eclipse in late May, which occurs in your personal growth zone, to jolt you into an awareness of what matters more than money and status. The quickly following Solar Eclipse in your money zone in early June will underline this too, ahead of the second Saturn-Uranus square. It’s at this point that you may start to feel seriously drawn towards a career which more closely embodies your personal values and identity.
Try to avoid taking financial risks in late July. A difficult opposition between luxury-loving Venus and retrograde Jupiter highlights a reckless urge to spend, as does the opposition of impulsive Mars to retrograde Jupiter the following week. During August, keep your family and loved ones in the loop regarding your potential career plans. As the Sun opposes retrograde Jupiter in late August, there are warnings that keeping too much to yourself could leave loved ones feeling hurt or out in the cold; it’s their lives too, remember.
During late September, you may be able to adjust your working patterns or schedules in such a way that brings you greater freedom, particularly when then Sun trines Saturn near the end of the month, helping you to free up space through better time management. An inspirational Mars-Jupiter trine in late October also brings ideas on this front and may help you to start to see possibilities where previously you’d only seen obstacles.
Look to the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in mid-November to help you finally make a career decision. A slightly tricky Mars-Jupiter square in early December highlights the importance of having your family on board too, but by the time the third Saturn-Uranus square plays out in late December, your mind will be made up and you will have an action plan in place. With bountiful Jupiter settling back into your community zone in December, a future in a caring, community or socially responsible career role seems like it would fit the bill very well indeed.
2021 is packed with opportunities for spiritual growth and learning for your zodiac sign, Gemini – although with three tense Saturn-Uranus squares activating the religious and spiritual elements of your chart, this is not always going to be an easy ride.
The second week of January sees Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn all in Aquarius, your learning zone, but in difficult approaching aspects to both Mars and Uranus, in your spiritual zone. When Mars conjuncts Uranus on January 20th, you may find yourself explosively questioning your faith or your beliefs – but with Mercury turning retrograde on January 30th, finding answers will not be easy.
It’s in mid-February that the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares reveals tension between what you think you already know versus how much more there is to know, spiritually speaking. When Mars arrives in your own zodiac sign in March, you’ll be doubly driven to explore and to find answers, particularly when Mars trines Saturn on March 21st. A difficult square between Mars and Neptune early in April, however, warns you to be careful of scams or ‘gurus’ who claim to know the one true path.
During May, Gemini, your focus briefly turns away from faith when Jupiter leaves your learning zone and moves into Pisces, your career zone. Between early May and June 20th, you can make a great deal of material progress. Watch out for the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone, Sagittarius, on May 26th, however, when pressure from work may make loved ones feel second best. Mercury turns retrograde in your own zodiac sign at the end of May, making it doubly difficult for you to calm these fears in your loved ones, Gemini. The Solar Eclipse in your own sign on June 10th may be your signal that something has to change, both at work and in your faith. Hot on the heels of the eclipse, the second of the Saturn-Uranus square may again ignite spiritual frustrations and anxieties.
A relatively quiet July and August in astrology finds you working on your family harmony and trying to sort out your work-life balance, with a series of helpful trines August assisting in this. In terms of your ongoing spiritual quest, Gemini, you can expect insight around October 18, when Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your learning zone, opening up a wealth of possibilities for spiritual and personal growth. Around the same time, both the Sun and Mars trine Jupiter from Libra and your creative zone, suggesting that a playful approach to spiritualty will pay dividends in October.
The new path you have discovered may prove to be difficult in practical terms, however. The Lunar Eclipse in mid-November highlights tension between your spirituality and your everyday life, as does a tense Mars-Uranus opposition just days beforehand. When the December 4th Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius pinpoints your relationship zone, it would be sensible to seek your partner’s support for your new spiritual reality.
The final Saturn-Uranus square occurs in late December, but by this time you should have made progress in discovering how to further your spiritual quest. The arrival of Jupiter into Pisces and your career zone for the second time in the last couple of days of 2021 signals that the time for introspection is over. Your spiritual path is settled, Gemini; turn your attention now to your material path.
It’s a reflective and somewhat secretive start to your love life in 2021, Gemini, with Venus active in your personal growth area, and trine Uranus in your secrets zone. You will be happiest keeping your private life private at this time – at least until an adventurous Venus-Jupiter conjunction on February 11th which suggests there may be cause for celebration!
The well-meaning influence of friends could impact up on your love life in April when Venus squares up to Pluto and others attempt to control what’s going on. However, a stabilizing Venus-Saturn square in late April is reassuring and suggests that an existing relationship will not be too troubled in the first quarter of 2021.
Venus arrives in your own sign early in May, Gemini, and a potent Venus-Pluto trine on May 20th is notable for its desire for freedom. This could manifest in romantic travel, or perhaps a compulsive desire for someone from another culture. If you are single, this could be an interesting time to date someone new. However, the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone on May 26th is a timely reminder that relationships of all kinds have consequences. Don’t play with fire and then complain about being burned, Gemini.
Since the Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your own sign, you are likely to feel exceptionally emotional, and any illicit relationship issues may well come to a head at that point.
August is a good time for focusing on family life. Venus’ trines to Uranus and to Pluto will be helpful for this, although the Venus-Neptune opposition on August 10th does warn against trying to keep secrets within the family. Venus transits Libra and your fun zone for a few weeks from mid-August, so make the effort to keep things interesting with your partner. If you’re single and seeking excitement in love, the Venus-Jupiter trine on September 6th is another interesting moment. With Venus moving through your love zone in October, a new relationship might take root quite quickly. Remember, however, that secrecy could still be an issue – anything illicit in love is likely to come out into the open during the Lunar Eclipse on November 19th.
The Solar Eclipse in early December is in your love zone and could signal drama around a relatively new relationship; however, it could also be a positive factor for an enduring relationship, allowing both parties to clear the air. Mars shifts into your love zone on December 13th, boosting passion even though it also boosts argumentative behavior. Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn and your intimacy zone on December 19th, so this would be a good time to seek couples therapy or any other counseling your relationship may need. Once Venus turns direct again on January 1st, 2022, your love life should feel refreshed and renewed.
Although your career is not your top yearly priority during 2021, it’s worth remembering that your learning zone, so triggered by the three Saturn-Uranus squares, is also relevant to your career – in terms of training and further qualifications, at least. Look out for training opportunities in February, June and December when the Saturn-Uranus squares are activated and seize any chance to stretch and develop your skills.
A crisis of confidence around your career and your own abilities could be triggered by the Mars-Jupiter square in late January, Gemini, but the Sun-Jupiter conjunction a week later should help to restore your self-belief. As well as the potential learning opportunities around the Saturn-Uranus square in mid-February, you might also find ways to incorporate your growing spirituality into your business life, especially when Mars trines Pluto on February 25th.
In late April, Mars shifts into your money zone, and this can be a satisfying and busy period for you, especially if you would like to investigate new side hustles or to start a new business. You will also be better at selling your own skills during this period, so it’s a fine time to seek promotion. It’s May 13th to June 20th which is set to be your most productive period of the year, however, once Jupiter shifts into your career zone for a few weeks before turning retrograde. Take every opportunity at this time to shout your talents from the rooftops, Gemini.
June’s Solar Eclipse in your own sign can bring personal upheaval on many levels, including your career and working life, and the second Saturn-Uranus square on June 14th is unsettling too. However, lots of training opportunities – or perhaps teaching and mentoring opportunities – are suggested in July, particularly when a Mars-Saturn opposition stabilizes your position and your expertise.
During late July, watch out for some work-life balance issues when first Venus and then Mars opposes retrograde Jupiter in your career zone. August and September are relatively calm in terms of work-related astrological aspects, so you can use these months to breathe and to consolidate your progress so far.
Get ready for a burst of creativity early in October when the Sun conjuncts Mars, and then a few weeks later when Mars trines Jupiter. This is a fertile period for new ideas and innovations. There is such a thing as too much innovation, however, as you may discover when Mars opposes Uranus in mid-November, just before the Lunar Eclipse.
December sees tension created by the final Saturn-Uranus square, but it also brings a very welcome burst of energy and enthusiasm on December 29th when Jupiter arrives back into your career zone for the second time. This time it will hang around – so by late December you should be feeling positive and inspired about your career possibilities into 2022 and beyond.
Three difficult, rare square aspects in astrology between Saturn, symbolizing the status quo, and Uranus, symbolizing a radical new direction, impact the most intimate zone of your chart, pitting anything secret or illicit about your relationship or your love life against what society expects from you. If your family or community disapprove of your choices in love, this is the year where that may start to feel unworkable.
A reckless Mars-Uranus linkup in late January may be where the tension is first revealed; one week later this is followed by a compulsive Venus-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, your love zone, which could prompt dramatic action. As Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius, your intimacy zone, on January 30th, you may frantically attempt to resolve matters behind the scenes, but the first of the exact Saturn-Uranus squares hits on February 17th and is sure to have some fallout for you.
In mid-April, Venus moves into your community zone, encouraging you to be more open about your desires. This is supported by a helpful Mars-Jupiter trine, and by two conjunctions with freedom-loving Uranus in late April, one created by Venus and one by the Sun. At this point, things may appear to be looking up; when Jupiter shifts from your intimacy zone in Capricorn to your adventure zone in Pisces in mid-May, that’s a further signal of openness and tolerance – but this relief could be short-lived.
A Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius and in your work zone on May 26th suggests that drama in your personal life could spill over into your professional life, and the Solar Eclipse in Gemini in early June falls in your secrecy zone, suggesting that once more you may feel compelled to hide what’s truly going on. The second Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact on June 14th, underlining that this issue is still not resolved -and when Jupiter turns retrograde in Pisces, your adventure zone, on June 20th, you will definitely feel restricted once more.
Expect the issue to rumble on through July, when a powerful Sun-Pluto opposition pits your identity in love against what others expect from you. In August, however, Venus moves into Libra and your family zone and you may finally receive some support. Indeed, it’s through family interventions that you may start to resolve this matter, particularly in September, when first a Mars-Saturn trine and then a Sun-Saturn trine surround you with security and acceptance.
In October, Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your intimacy zone and your luck may start to improve in affairs of the heart. The following day, a helpful Mars-Jupiter trine gives you the go-ahead to fulfill your wishes, and November’s Lunar Eclipse in your community zone suggests that you may turn your back on those who have held you back. Certainly, the Solar Eclipse on December 4th in Sagittarius points to a new set of daily routines and rhythms – a positive new way of life, in fact. With Venus turning retrograde in your love zone on December 19th, it’s time to reflect on how far you’ve come this year. The final Saturn-Uranus square in late December may still have some tricks up its sleeve, but Jupiter is about to shift back into your adventure zone, clearing the way for happiness ahead. Once Venus turns direct on January 1st 2022, your path looks smooth and inviting.
As previously outlined, 2021 could be an uncomfortable year for your love life, particularly if your freedom is curtailed or if a relationship has to be kept secret. Look to the compulsive-feeling Venus-Pluto conjunction in late January for an indication about how illicit or otherwise this is likely to feel for you – don’t be surprised if sudden attractions or irresistible opportunities appeal, even if you have previously been in a stable relationship.
February’s first brush with the Saturn-Uranus square is also surrounded by potentially difficult activity from Venus. A conjunction to Saturn early in the month could offer stability, but it can also signify stubbornness and your unwillingness to bend. A conjunction to Jupiter, a few days later, could bring better fortune, but it can also bring excess and recklessness in love.
The dreamy Venus-Neptune conjunction in March is romantic and idealistic, but in a complex love situation, it is not your friend. Squares from Venus to first Pluto and then Saturn in April suggest that an existing relationship may be under strain from work-related events, yet a new relationship may also struggle to find stability or security.
The Solar Eclipse in Gemini in your secrecy zone in early June is a concern, as you may feel under intense pressure at this point, especially if family or society disapproves of your love desires. With the second Saturn-Uranus square also hitting in mid-June, you may feel intensely emotional and depressed at being unable to find the freedom you seek. It’s essential that you take great care of your mental health under so much pressure and stress.
Look for an improvement in family relationships from mid-August onwards, as Venus arrives in Libra and in your family zone, followed by Mars a month later. There’s even room for some joy in your love life, particularly in late September when Venus opposes Uranus, trines Neptune and then squares Jupiter – these will be lighter moments in the year. If you’re single and experiencing the whole intimacy vs. community vibe in a more abstract way, look to late September for a good opportunity to meet someone new.
It’s probably not until November’s Lunar Eclipse, however, that you will start to feel truly free in your love life – free to do as you please, with whoever you please, regardless of what anyone else may think. December’s Solar Eclipse falls in your everyday zone, so this could signal a brand-new start, under new ‘rules’ of your own making.
Venus turns retrograde on December 19th in your love zone, and you will certainly have pause for thought about what you’ve been through this year in the name of love. With the last of the Saturn-Uranus squares also playing out in late December, there could still be some lingering undercurrents of doubt or hesitancy around your closest relationship. This hesitancy is short-lived, however, with Venus due to turn happily direct once more – appropriately enough, on January 1st, 2022, signaling a new phase in your love-related happiness.
With so much on your mind in your personal life, your career may not be your top yearly priority during 2021. For the first part of the year, you are likely to continue much as you are in this regard. If you are considering investing in any kind of community scheme or business, however, pay close attention around the time of the Mars-Jupiter square on January 23rd, when something really might be too good to be true. In astrology, the Sun-Jupiter conjunction a week later is also a potential warning sign regarding investment, debt and other people’s money – make sure you have a handle on your financial situation during this time, and in the run-up to the first Saturn-Uranus square in mid-February.
Surprisingly enough, early April is a very promising time for any kind of spiritual business, spiritually-related career or a career which helps and nurtures others – even while your personal life is in turmoil, a positive Mars-Jupiter trine signals opportunities for you to improve your reputation in these areas or even to launch something new.
Bountiful Jupiter’s move into Pisces and your travel zone in mid-May could be good news if you work in travel, entertainment or tourism, as opportunities will expand for sure in those areas. Be careful not to over-stretch yourself, however, as the Lunar Eclipse on May 26th hints that your daily routines may fall into chaos if you try to take on too much work around this period. When Mars in your own sign trines Neptune on May 31st, you may benefit from highly imaginative ideas, or even inspiration from another culture, which you can put to good use at work or in business.
Allow yourself plenty of me-time and breathing space in June, while you deal with the intense Solar Eclipse in your privacy zone on June 10th, and the swiftly following second round of Saturn square Uranus. July is not a time to be reckless with money, particularly when Mars opposes Saturn from your money zone on July 1st, and then squares unpredictable Uranus a few days later. Fortunately, you should have a good nose for trouble over these summer months, and the Sun-Jupiter opposition in late August will help you to avoid scams and con artists.
If you need financial help or need an injection of cash for a new project, family may be supportive in September. The Mars-Saturn trine in late September is particularly favorable for getting support structures in place around something potentially exciting. Any such help or investment should bear positive fruit when Mars trines the newly direct Jupiter on October 19th.
November’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in your objectives zone, so it may be that with everything else you have faced this year, you’ll find yourself needing to re-think a career direction. The Solar Eclipse on December 4th is in your work zone, so that would be a good time to make firm decisions on that topic. You round out the working year with the return of Jupiter to your travel zone for the second time, potentially bringing good fortune for work in travel or work which involves a lot of travel.
With three rare Saturn-Uranus squares taking effect this year in astrology, in February, June and December, expect ongoing tension about the hours you work versus the hours you spend with your sweetheart and family.
These tensions become evident very early in the year; the second week of January sees Mars square up to Saturn and Jupiter square Uranus, as the planetary dance towards February’s exact Saturn-Uranus square heats up. It doesn’t help that Mercury turns retrograde in your love zone at the end of January, nor that Mars spends most of January in your career zone, urging you to prioritize work over love. During February, however, Venus transits through Aquarius and Pisces, through your love zone and into your intimacy zone, so if you keep talking and keep trying, your relationship can survive this initial bump. When Mars trines Pluto on February 25th, you may even be able to find an innovative way to alter your working arrangements, which might help.
April may see a resurgence of tension, however, as both the Sun and Venus conjunct shock-bringer Uranus in your career zone, perhaps heralding dramatic action concerning your job, your love life or both. Mars shifts into your privacy zone in late April, which would be a good time to batten down the hatches and consider your options.
May’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in Sagittarius, in your risk zone, hinting at drama around a flirtation or a chance you’ve taken. This occurs not long after optimistic Jupiter leaves your love zone. Coupled with the Solar Eclipse in your social zone on June 10th, these astrological events may reflect infidelity or a friendship which becomes something else entirely. Shortly thereafter in mid-June, the second Saturn-Uranus square kicks in, reminding you that issues over your work-love balance have yet to be resolved. July’s Mars-Saturn opposition shows entrenched positions between you and your partner, while the Venus-Mars conjunction mid-July is in Leo, highlighting your wish to put your own desires first.
There’s a focus on money matters through August and September, with a helpful Mars-Pluto trine which may enable you to wrestle back control of the situation through more adjustments to the way you work. When Jupiter turns direct in your love zone in early October, you may feel that you’ve weathered the worst of the storm. Any relief may be temporary, however, as November sees squares between Mars and Saturn, and the Sun and Jupiter, hinting at unhelpful family interventions. The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus and in your career zone on November 19th may be a turning point you can no longer ignore; it is swiftly followed by a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, in your joy and creativity zone on December 4th – perhaps this is the time for a leap of faith into a new job or a new business.
Late December sees one final round of the Saturn-Uranus square, but with optimistic Jupiter settling into Pisces and your intimacy zone in the last days of 2021, it looks likely that you will have found a workable balance which allows you to maintain both your career satisfaction and your intimate life.
As mentioned, concerns over your love life are likely to be front and center during much of 2021. In astrology, the year’s first Mercury retrograde period, beginning on January 30th, is a good time to reflect on what you might change in your own behavior and yearly priorities.
Despite the difficulties of the first Saturn-Uranus square in mid-February, Venus and Mercury both conjunct warm-hearted Jupiter in your love zone, and in mid-March the Sun and Venus both meet up with romantic Neptune in Aries and your intimacy zone. You may have very limited time with your partner, but if you can focus on creating special moments while you are together, that will help enormously. A Mars-Saturn trine in late March suggests that the support of friends will be invaluable.
If you are single, April could be an interesting month. There are hints of a workplace romance when first Venus and then the Sun conjunct Uranus in your career zone, although the Lunar Eclipse in your dating zone on May 26th warns that things may not be as simple as they first appear, even if you are free at that time. During June, it may be wise to keep a low profile romantically. Venus moves into your secrecy zone, and the Solar Eclipse in Gemini on June 10th warns against too much public attention towards your love life.
When Venus moves into your own zodiac sign on June 27th, you will start to feel more open and freer, and the Venus-Mars conjunction in your own zodiac sign on July 13th is certainly a showstopper for your love life, for better or for worse. With both Venus and Mars opposing retrograde Jupiter a week later, however, you would be wise to think carefully before you take risks. This is still the case through to early September, when Mars opposes Neptune and hints that all is not what it seems in a relationship or new love affair.
The good news is that when first Mars and then the Sun trine Saturn in late September, communication in your relationship should become easier – despite Mercury retrograding at this time. When Jupiter turns direct in your love zone in mid-October, a sense of fun returns and this is a good time to be playful in your approach to love, especially since Venus is supportive at that time.
However, unhelpful interventions from in-laws or extended family may create problems in early to mid-November, and concerns over your working hours have still not gone away, as evidenced by the Lunar Eclipse on November 19th. The Solar Eclipse on December 5th, however, occurs in your joy zone, and could mark the end of this troublesome period. There is one more round of angst over your work-life balance in late December - however, by the time Jupiter shifts into your intimacy zone just ahead of the New Year, you should be well placed to move your relationship to the next level.
It’s the interplay between your career and your love life which will dominate 2021 for you in astrology, but that doesn’t mean that your career will suffer – far from it. Mars and Jupiter are firmly on your side in January, pushing you to achieve greater things and providing extensive opportunities. However, the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares in mid-February will probably feel like a wakeup call as it becomes clear exactly how out of balance your life is. A Mars-Pluto trine in late February is an early chance to start to address this – this aspect gives you the freedom to drive change in your working hours, your schedules or your working circumstances.
Pressure continues to mount, however. When the Sun squares up to Pluto in mid-March, work-related travel may become an issue, or you may find yourself unable to take up a training opportunity due to issues at home. This breeds a certain amount of resentment in you, and when the Sun and Venus both conjunct unpredictable Uranus in your career zone in late April, you may favor drastic action.
Opportunities to change or streamline your working life are still coming – for example, the Sun-Pluto trine in mid-May – but whether you will sense them or take advantage of them depends on your emotional state at the time. The Lunar Eclipse on May 26th occurs in a zone of your chart which covers both risk and creative opportunities. This could apply to your love life or your career and if the latter, may hint at a major shift in direction. Certainly, the following Solar Eclipse, on June 10th, is in your objectives zone, and may suggest that you are changing your plans on a grand scale.
Watch out for impulsive over-spending in late July, when both Venus and Mars oppose Jupiter from your money zone. Showering your lover with expensive gifts is not a long-term solution to your relationship issues. However, when Mars moves into Virgo and your money zone in late July, you will be extremely motivated to increase your income and early August brings tremendous opportunities to do just that. In the first weeks of August, Venus trines both Uranus and Pluto, creating earthy, grounded opportunities for career building and promotion. These are backed up by a positive Mars-Pluto trine in early September – but watch out for financial scams on September 2nd when Mars opposes Neptune.
Look into training opportunities in early October when the Sun conjuncts Mars. Be prepared, however, for everything to change during the Lunar Eclipse on November 19th, which occurs in your career zone. Coupled with the Solar Eclipse in your risk zone two weeks later, this is another indication that a complete change of career direction may be what’s needed to fulfill your professional goals and your personal life.
If you do take a leap of faith, don’t panic when this idea is sorely tested in late December. This is when the final Saturn-Uranus square kicks in, and Venus retrograde in your everyday work zone suggests some unease. It will be a temporary blip, however, and 2022 should see you able to consolidate the choices you have made.
2021 could prove to be an adventurous year for you, Virgo, with plenty of opportunities for travel, new learning and adventure. However, three rare squares in astrology between Saturn and Uranus will find you having to work very hard indeed just to tread water in your work and everyday life.
This contrast - between your desire for freedom versus your need to work hard and pay bills - kicks in almost immediately, with Mars squaring up to Saturn and Jupiter squaring up to Uranus in mid-January. The first of the Saturn-Uranus squares becomes exact in mid-February, and you may have to choose whether to take a new and expansive opportunity or whether to maintain the status quo.
In late March, a helpful Mars-Saturn trine may make life easier, Virgo, promoting your career interests while also easing stabilizing everyday details. With Mars in Gemini and in your career zone, this would be a great time to undertake new training; a Mars-Jupiter trine in mid-April also holds a prediction that work-related travel opportunities are on the way. Probably just as well, because in late April both the Sun and Venus form conjunctions with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus and in your travel zone - your itchy feet will be hard to ignore at this point.
Jupiter moves out of Aquarius and your work zone mid-May and into Pisces and your love zone; however, a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in your family zone on May 26th reminds you that your wanderlust affects your family too. The Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your career zone and may force some unwelcome decisions relating to work, career and travel matters. Just days later, the second Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact, and you may have to forfeit an opportunity for the sake of stability.
Your adventure vs stability dilemma gets some help in early August, however, when Venus in your own sign of Virgo trines Uranus in your travel zone and Pluto in your creative zone, so it's possible that you may come up with some innovative ways to get the best of both worlds. In late September, when Mars and the Sun both trine Saturn from Libra and your money zone, financial pressures will ease, which again will facilitate adventure.
On October 18th, Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius, now back in your work zone, opening up fresh opportunities for you, Virgo. The Lunar Eclipse on November 19th in Taurus is in your travel and learning zone, and could bring you out-of-the-blue surprises which will help you figure out how to have it all. With the Solar Eclipse in your family zone in early December, however, it's vital that you have family on board with your decisions.
The final Saturn-Uranus square comes very late in December; by this time, however, you will hopefully have learned through the year that it is possible to break new ground while still holding true to your responsibilities. This will be your final chance for some while to practice doing just that, Virgo.
It looks set to be a relatively stable year for your love life, although as you work through your adventure vs routine dilemma, you'll need to keep in mind the needs and wishes of your loved ones too.
If you are single, you may feel especially impulsive early in the year, and more romantically confident than normal. When Venus in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto in late January, in your dating zone, a sudden attraction to someone new may feel overwhelming. In an established romance, it's late February which brings the yearly feel-good factor, as Venus moves into your love zone. The second week of March has an interesting meetup between the Sun and Venus on the one hand and dreamy Neptune on the other - a good opportunity for demonstrating your love. Venus moves into Aries, the most passionate part of your astrological chart, in late March, but a Sun-Pluto square in mid-April does warn against taking too many risks in love - if you do anything illicit, it may not be as secret as you might want.
Jupiter moves into your love zone on May 13th, bringing joy, fun and cause for celebration, but the Lunar Eclipse in your family zone on May 26th highlights how easily feelings can be hurt. When Mars opposes Pluto on June 5th, you will want to be careful of mixing friendship with love. By contrast, particularly if you are single and looking for love, the Sun-Jupiter trine in late June is positive about a friendship potentially becoming something more.
Venus and Mars both opposes retrograde Jupiter in late July, highlighting potential selfishness in an existing relationship where one party is giving far too much and the other far too little. Once Mars arrives in your sign on July 29th, Virgo, you won't stand for being second best or someone's afterthought. A potentially tricky Mars-Neptune opposition in early September hints at deception in love, although as the Mars-Pluto trine a few days later suggests, you may choose to remain ignorant of it.
During October, Venus moves into your family zone, and this would be an ideal time for extended family gatherings or for getting back in touch with distant loved ones. However, the Solar Eclipse on December 5th suggests drama around the family, so take care not to offend.
An intense Venus-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on December 11th in your risk zone repeats itself on December 25th, once Venus has turned retrograde - so the holiday season could be fraught if passions are running high. The last of the Saturn-Uranus squares in astrology is activated during this period too, so misunderstandings between your and your lover over work or travel plans may be behind the discord. However, in the last days of 2021, Jupiter returns to your love zone, where it will stay for some time, so you end the year on a note of joyous optimism in love.
With lots of opportunities to learn new skills, 2021 could prove to be a decisive year for your career - but it depends on whether or not you can keep up with an intensely demanding work schedule. Signs of overload appear early in January and a Mars-Uranus conjunction in Taurus, in your travel and freedom zone, on January 20th hints at a desire to throw it all in. You'll find the first Saturn-Uranus square in mid-February difficult to handle, as it holds a prediction that you'll face a difficult choice between opportunity and responsibility.
With Mars moving into your career zone in early March, however, you have the will and the skill to cope, and there are positive astrological aspects too, such as the stabilizing Mars-Saturn trine on March 22nd. Another very promising sign is the Mars-Jupiter trine in mid-April, which gives the go-ahead for a new project or a new way of working.
Watch out for Mercury turning retrograde in your career zone in late May, however, as this will make it more difficult for you to sell your skills. The Lunar Eclipse on May 26th and the following Solar Eclipse on June 10th suggest problems with your work-life balance, or unease within the family about your career progression - not helpful, coming as it does just days before the second round of Saturn square Uranus. Take time over July and August to really focus on where you want to head, work-wise, and how you intend to get there. A boldly creative Mars-Pluto trine in early September may help you with that too.
In mid-September, Mars shifts into your money zone and helps to drive your income up. However, Mercury also turns retrograde here later in the month, at which time you will need to seek professional advice over finances - don't leave anything to chance. Some impulsive spending is possible in early October when the Sun conjuncts Mars in your money zone, but you must avoid taking financial risks between October 19th and 22nd, when Mars squares up to Pluto in your risk zone.
Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and in your working zone on October 18th, which is a breath of fresh air. Training opportunities are likely in early-mid November, but you may lack the confidence to take them, buffeted as you are by Mars square Saturn and the Sun square Jupiter. The Lunar Eclipse in your higher education zone on November 19th shows you a future that might be possible with more investment in your skills - food for thought.
Look out for a highly creative idea when Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn in your risk zone on December 11th - but you will need to act quickly if you're to take advantage of this, business-wise. During the holiday period, the final Saturn-Uranus square takes effect, and you may struggle once more with the concept of opportunity versus stability. Once this influence has cleared, however, you should be able to face 2022 with a much clearer mind and a better idea of where you want to head.
During 2021, a major focus will be on your self-expression, Libra, which you may embody through your hobbies, your pastimes or even your wishes for your children. However, with three powerful, rare Saturn-Uranus squares set to come into force, you will need to battle some negativity or self-doubt; you may become particularly risk-averse this year. In Astrology, these squares also activate important love-related areas of your chart, which we’ll look at separately.
In January, squares between Mars and Saturn, and between Jupiter and Uranus, are laying the groundwork for conflict between how you want to express yourself and how circumstances confine you. Don’t be surprised if you feel anxious about family events or your future plans being beyond your total control. Once the first Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact on February 17th, you may feel trapped by circumstances, or overwhelmingly frustrated.
March brings a confidence boost, however, as Mars shifts into Gemini in your adventure zone, from where it trines stabilizing Saturn, helping to calm some anxieties. Mid-April may well bring creative good news too, as Mars trines Jupiter and expands your horizons. With both Venus and the Sun about to conjunct with unpredictable Uranus in your self-control zone, however, you may be your own worst enemy at times.
In mid-May, Jupiter moves into Pisces, your health zone, boosting your overall wellbeing as well as your self-esteem and your mental health. However, the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in late May is in your communication zone, so watch out for your words being dramatically misinterpreted. This is quickly followed by a Solar Eclipse in Gemini, in your learning zone, and the second of the Saturn-Uranus squares: attempts to stretch your creative wings in June may be blocked or poorly received, but don’t lose heart, Libra.
During July and August, look for a good combination of healthy friendships and plenty of rest and alone time, both of which are likely to soothe and calm you. Friends may also be encouraging you to take a leap of faith, but something is still holding you back, as reflected in oppositions between Mars and Saturn in early July and the Sun and Jupiter in late August. Lots of self-reflection and meditation may help, with a Mars-Pluto trine in early September being particularly promising for accessing assistance from your own higher consciousness.
It’s in October that you can expect to make real progress with creativity and freedom. Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius, your creative and risk zone, on October 18th, followed by a lovely trine from Mars in your own sign, Libra, to Jupiter. The Lunar Eclipse in mid-November falls in your self-control zone and may mark a breakthrough in your approach to freedom; the following Solar Eclipse in your communication zone will help you get your point across.
The final Saturn-Uranus square occurs in the middle of the holiday period, when tensions may briefly resurface. However, once Jupiter enters Pisces and settles back into your health and everyday zone in the last days of 2021, you can expect an easier time ahead.
In addition to their influence on your self-expression and willingness to take risks, Libra, the chart zones impacted by the three Saturn-Uranus squares of 2021 also relate to intimacy and passion, and to the flirtatious area of love such as dating or non-serious love affairs. Throughout 2021, you may struggle with issues of control and power in a relationship, or a new and intoxicating relationship may become a focal point in your life despite your better judgment. In an existing, settled relationship, these issues are likely to play out as a struggle between boredom versus a step too far.
These tensions first become evident in January, particularly around January 20th when impulsive Mars conjuncts shock planet Uranus in your intimacy zone. One week later, Venus conjuncts compulsive Pluto Capricorn, in your family zone – a reminder that your wider family life will be impacted throughout the year by the choices you make in love.
Just ahead of the first Saturn-Uranus square in February, Venus and Mercury both conjunct joyful Jupiter in your dating zone, in Aquarius, so this would be a prime time to meet someone new. However, an impetuous Mars-Pluto trine from your intimacy zone to your family zone warns of the dangers of moving too far, too fast. In mid-April, the Sun in your love zone, Aries, squares Pluto in your family zone, Capricorn, with another such warning – but with Venus in your passion zone at this point, you may be too involved to step back.
Fast forward into June and the second of the Saturn-Uranus square, and not much has changed. With Venus and Mars both moving into the friendship zone of your zodiac sign during June, however, it’s possible that friends may be a source of support in your love life – or that a friend may become something much more. Towards the end of July, when both Venus and Mars arrive in Virgo, your secrets zone, look out for anything illicit becoming more public, whether that suits you or not.
Venus is your ruling planet in astrology, so its arrival in your own zodiac sign, Libra, in mid-August is a stabilizing influence. The Mars-Pluto trine in early September is helpful for the impact your love life may be having on your family, and when Mars and the Sun in turn trine stabilizing Saturn from your own sign in late September, it might be possible for a love issue which has caused tumult to become more widely accepted. Watch out for saying more than you should once Mercury turns retrograde in your own sign, however, at the end of September.
Venus moves into Capricorn, your family zone, in early November, restoring peace and harmony – however, Venus turns retrograde here on December 19th. With the final Saturn-Uranus square occurring just days later, the drama of your love life may have one final twist over the holiday period. Stay calm: Venus is set to turn direct once more on January 1st, 2022, when you can look forward to a more settled period in love.
Much of your year is likely to be focused on love, the home, your children and family and on gaining confidence in your self-expression, Libra. However, it’s important to bear in mind that the major astrological events of the year – the three Saturn-Uranus trines – occur in areas of your chart which can also relate to risk-taking (including with money) and to investment, debt and similar money matters, so you could see some shakeups and surprises in how much money you owe, to whom, and how you can obtain more or pay back what you owe.
The first yearly Saturn-Uranus trine occurs in mid-February when both Venus and Mars are in your risk zone. Try to avoid gambling at this time and seek expert financial advice before making major decisions in business or otherwise. The Sun and spend-happy Venus both conjunct Neptune in your work zone in early March, so this is not a good time to take risks either – however, the Mars-Saturn trine on March 22nd could suggest progress or good ideas in a business or career connected to education or travel.
It’s not until late April, when Mars arrives in your career zone, that your attention will really be turned to your career. Imagination and soft skills can be put to excellent use on May 31st, when Mars trines Neptune – perhaps correcting or adjusting for potential communication mistakes made around the Lunar Eclipse on May 26th. May looks promising workwise for another reason too, with Jupiter arriving in your work zone on May 13th – between then and June 20th, when Jupiter turns retrograde, you should be able to make a lot of progress. The second Saturn-Uranus square occurs on June 14th but does not look like it impacts you a great deal workwise. With Venus in your career zone at that point, you may in any case be able to charm yourself out of any difficulties.
If you work with the public or are professionally involved in social or community issues, July and August could bring points of career tension. The Sun-Jupiter opposition on August 19th may feel particularly relevant if you are blocked from moving ahead with a creative idea in this regard. In late September, Mercury turns retrograde in your own sign, Libra, which traditionally suggests some communication issues in business.
Once Jupiter turns direct in your risk zone in mid-October, however, you may be well placed to push ahead with new business ideas, particularly in the creative industries. Look to the Lunar Eclipse in late November for issues with an investment; again, always seek expert advice. During the holiday period, the third and final Saturn-Uranus square may hint at reckless spending – however, in the last days of 2021, Jupiter is set to settle into your everyday work zone for an extended period, which is promising.
The complex interplay between love and family is likely to be a key theme in your year, Scorpio, with three rare Saturn-Uranus squares highlighting points of tension between a love relationship and family responsibilities or perhaps extended family members. A meetup of impulsive Mars and unpredictable Uranus in Taurus, your love zone, on January 20th may be a key spark in what is to come in mid-February, during the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares. For the first few months of 2021, expect a lot of tension between what you want to do versus what you think you should do.
In May, it may be financial matters which occupy your time – Jupiter shifts into Pisces, your pleasure zone, on May 13th, encouraging big spending, but will turn retrograde on June 20th, hinting at regrets to be considered at leisure. Meanwhile, the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in late May falls in your money zone and may come as something of a shock. Hot on its heels, on June 10th, the Solar Eclipse is in Gemini in your debt zone; this may pertain to money once more, but it can also signify issues around emotional debts too. The second Saturn-Uranus square occurs days later on June 14th, so lingering resentments among family members may rear up once again, especially if your family disapproves of your relationship, or if your partner does not get along well with your blood family.
Late June shifts the focus once more, this time towards your career. With both Venus and Mars in your career zone in Leo at this point, you may choose to throw yourself into work in order to mitigate the fallout in your personal life. A Mars-Saturn opposition on July 1st hints that trouble with your work-life balance is not helping your relationship situation. Look to the passionate Venus-Mars conjunction on July 13th, also in your career zone, to help you find a way to ‘sell’ your career efforts to your partner.
In early September, Venus arrives in your own sign of Scorpio, which may signal that love issues start to settle down. Watch out for Mercury turning retrograde in your secrets zone on September 27th – if there is anything you want kept private or secret, you will need to be careful at this point. In mid-October, Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius, in your family zone, encouraging openness and honesty, which could be a turning point in the love-family conflict you’ve been experiencing.
However, difficult squares in November occur between Mars in your sign and Saturn in Aquarius, and between the Sun in your sign and Jupiter in Aquarius. These coupled with a tense Mars-Uranus opposition mid-month suggest that you may be forced to make a choice. The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 19th occurs in your love zone, further underlining this. The Solar Eclipse in Gemini on December 4th is in your values zone, so these few weeks may be critical in your understanding of what truly matters to you, Scorpio.
The final Saturn-Uranus square occurs in the middle of the holiday period, suggesting still further tension – but hang on in there. Jupiter moves into Pisces and settles in your joy zone in the last days of 2021. Better news is coming.
As already mentioned, the dominant influence of 2021 is the three Saturn-Uranus squares in February, June and December, each of which points to an ongoing issue which pits love and family against one another.
In the first few months of the year, you may spend a lot of time trying to dodge the issue, Scorpio – for example in the second week of February when Mercury and Venus both conjunct Jupiter in your family zone, you’re likely to be able to put on a good show of family fun and unity, despite the impending influence of the upcoming Saturn-Uranus square. March 22nd is another key date, when the Mars-Saturn trine suggests you will be working hard behind the scenes to try to soothe tempers or boost family stability. Nevertheless, more impetuous conjunctions in your love zone - first Venus and then the Sun with Uranus - spell trouble in late April.
Jupiter’s arrival in Pisces, in your pleasure zone on May 13th has implications for love – if you are single, this would be a promising time for dating or finding new love. However, this area of your chart also covers risk-taking, and could suggest a reckless approach to infidelity, particularly with Venus resident in your intimacy zone at that time. The Lunar Eclipse in late May is in your money zone, but this area of your chart also deals with values; if you have taken a risk, the resulting shock to what you value most may be troublesome. This is further underlined by the Solar Eclipse in your intimacy zone on June 10th. The second Saturn-Uranus square comes just days later, reminding you of a gulf between what you want in love and what your family expects of you.
Relief could come from highly supportive friendships in late July and early August, Scorpio. With both Venus and Mars in Virgo, your social zone, at this time, Venus trines first Uranus and then Pluto, suggesting that friends may play a role in soothing tensions at home or between you and your partner. Be open to help where it is offered. However, avoid letting friends know too much about any intimate secrets you may have, particularly during the Mars-Neptune opposition on September 2nd.
Jupiter turns direct in your family zone on October 18th, which would normally suggest an increase in family happiness. However, you may still feel resentment, Scorpio, especially towards any extended family members who have interfered in your love life. The Mars-Saturn square on November 10th and the Sun-Jupiter square on November 15th both signal unease between your personal identity and your family identity, and the Mars-Uranus opposition on November 17th highlights reckless relationship decisions again, ahead of the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone just days later.
December’s Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius in your values zone is probably a crunch moment when you will have to make a choice over this issue. There is still lingering tension, as the third Saturn-Uranus square takes place during the holiday period, but there is hope on the horizon too: when Jupiter settles into your joy zone on December 28th, you can breathe a sigh of relief, Scorpio.
Your career is unlikely to be your top priority this year, Pisces, as matters in your personal life may feel far more urgent. However, there are periods in 2021, particularly in the middle part of the year, where you can make a lot of progress with what you do for a living.
If you work in sales or communication, January looks set to be an interesting month, with Venus in Capricorn and in your communication zone helping you to win over the public. Watch out for the Sun-Pluto conjunction in mid-January in Capricorn, however, when you may discover the pitfalls of being too clever with words. The second week of March is also a good moment if you work in the creative industries; conjunctions from the Sun and Venus with imaginative Neptune should prove inspirational. Meanwhile, anyone experiencing discord with day-to-day work colleagues may see an improvement once Venus arrives in this zone of your chart, in Aries, on March 21st.
On May 13th, Jupiter moves into your creative zone, which is great news if you work in the arts. However, Jupiter will turn retrograde on June 20th, so try to sell your skills during that brief window of opportunity if you can. Your confidence will be on the increase here too, Scorpio, so it’s a good time to try for a new job or promotion. However, watch your finances carefully – the Lunar Eclipse on May 26th occurs in your money zone and may be experienced as a short, sharp shock in this area of your life. The ensuing Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your investment zone, so you will definitely want to take professional advice over finances in this period.
Overall, however, June looks like a promising month for career matters, Scorpio, with Mars arriving in your career zone early on. The Sun-Jupiter trine on June 23rd is especially promising for people in the travel or education industry but be careful with a Mars-Saturn opposition on July 1st, which hints at too much work and not enough family time. When Venus conjuncts Mars in your career zone on July 13th, you have the perfect opportunity to get your partner on board with your career plans – or even to fall in love with someone connected to your career. Late August brings a Sun-Jupiter opposition, however, which again pits your career against family interests. You have every right to pursue a career you are passionate about, but it’s important this year to try to find the right balance.
There could be another period of overspending in early October, when luxury-loving Venus moves into your money zone; with no-limits Jupiter turning direct in your family zone shortly thereafter, there may be a temptation to try to buy affection from loved ones in order to make up for drama in your personal life. Be very careful making any major financial decision in late November or early December, as the December 4th Solar Eclipse will take place in your money zone – this could be a game-changer, Scorpio.
Make your health your top priority in 2021, Sagittarius, in order to cushion yourself from the difficult influences of three rare Saturn-Uranus squares, in February, June and December. Too much stress is a key factor in these astrological aspects, so remember your mental and psychological health too, as well as staying physically fit.
You’ll feel pressure start to mount in mid-January, when Mars squares up to Saturn and Jupiter squares up to Uranus. A Mars-Uranus conjunction in Taurus on January 20th may be a key factor, as this points towards a very tense situation, waiting to explode; this occurs in your health zone, but this zone of your chart also reflects day-to-day working concerns, so the underlying driver of your stress is likely to be at work. With Mercury turning retrograde in Aquarius at the end of January in your ‘busy’ zone, you arrive at mid-February’s Saturn-Uranus square already feeling a little cornered.
Fortunately, it looks as though your partner and family have your back in March and April. Determined Mars forms a trine to stabilizing Saturn from Gemini, your love zone, and then around a month later to generous Jupiter. Support is there if you reach out for it. However, financial pressure may add to your stress, particularly when the Sun squares Pluto in mid-April.
Jupiter enters Pisces and moves into your family zone in mid-May, and from then until June 20th, when it turns retrograde, you should find plenty of laughter, companionship and joy in those around you, which will help you to de-stress. However, the Lunar Eclipse in your own sign on May 26th is swiftly followed by a Solar Eclipse in your love zone on June 10th in Gemini – and this in turn is followed days later by the second Saturn-Uranus square. The work-related pressure you are under may start to challenge even the closest of your relationships around this time, Sagittarius.
Late July through September is the best period of the year for getting your career back under control, Sagittarius, so that you can earn your living without adversely impacting your mental or physical health. Between August 3rd and 11th, Venus in your career zone trines first Uranus in your everyday work zone and then Pluto in your money zone, suggesting that you can create changes to your working routines and structures that will enable you to breathe more easily. This is backed up by an energizing Mars-Pluto trine in early September. By October 18th, when Jupiter turns direct in the busiest area of your chart, you should be feeling stronger and finding peace of mind through meditation and spiritual pursuits too.
November 19th brings a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in your health zone, Sagittarius, followed by the Solar Eclipse in your own sign on December 4th. These are likely to be major yearly decision points for you, as to whether you continue to put your health first or allow things to slip back out of control again. With Venus turning retrograde in your money zone over the holiday period, and a final reminder of what’s at stake from the third Saturn-Uranus square in this same period, you may safely conclude that you don’t need as much income as you thought you did and that you’d prefer to prioritize your health and sanity.
With this year looking very busy and pressured workwise, it’s your closest relationships which look set to support and sustain you through bumpy patches, Sagittarius. Your love life looks set to continue much as normal through January and February, but once Venus shifts into Pisces and your family zone in late February, this loving support will become more evident, and more important, as you face the fallout from the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares.
Early March would be a very good time to take a stay-at-home break, if you can. Between the 11th and 14th, both the Sun and Venus conjunct compassionate Neptune in your home zone, making it the perfect de-stress retreat. If you’re single, Sagittarius, March is also a good time for dating. Passionate Mars shifts into Gemini, your love zone, early in the month, with Venus moving into your dating zone, Aries, later.
In May and June, however, the love picture gets a little more complex. With Venus moving into your love zone, and warm-hearted Jupiter arriving in your family zone, it looks stable enough on the surface. The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26th, nonetheless, brings drama or a shock into your personal life, and with the ensuing Solar Eclipse on June 10th occurring in your love zone, it seems that relationships will be under stress during this period.
A trine from Mars to Neptune in late May hints at something hidden or deceptive being revealed, while the Mars-Pluto opposition in early June suggests that money, or a lack of it, or debt may be the root cause of any discord in love. This, of course, will increase the pressure you already feel regarding work, as the second of the Saturn-Uranus squares approaches in mid-June. The good news is that this is likely to be a catalyst for good in you taking back control of the work and health situation.
If you are single in September and October, there are hints that a friendship could turn into romance, particularly when passionate Mars shifts into Libra, your social zone in mid-September. Mercury turns retrograde here towards the beginning of October, however, so be careful about miscommunication and unintended offense if you are meeting new potential dates. Venus’ arrival in your own sign in early October will help you to charm your way into (and out of) trouble!
December’s Solar Eclipse occurs in Sagittarius, and this highlights issues of who you are and what you want from life, including in love. It’s a time for being grateful for a partner who has supported you, or for striking out on your own if you are single. Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn, your values zone on December 19th, so if you do start a new relationship around now, you will want to ensure that you are both on the same page over major, non-negotiable values and key issues in your life. Once Venus turns direct again on January 1st, 2022, you can look forward with confidence.
As mentioned, your everyday working life seems to be a source of pressure and stress during 2021, but that may well be because you are being successful – greater success comes with greater expectations, after all. There are lots of positive work, career and business-related astrological aspects ahead of you this year, it’s just a question of balancing these against the impact of stress on your mental and physical health.
You start the year with Mars in your everyday work zone, so you’ll definitely hit the ground running after the holiday period. You may be trying to drive change in your organization, but you’re hitting a lot of resistance. The core of the Saturn-Uranus square energy is that the status quo gets pitted against new innovation, and this is what you’ll be trying to navigate in mid-February when the square becomes exact for the first time.
There’s a sense moving into April that you may however be trying to run before you can walk with one particular business idea or project. When the Sun squares Pluto in mid-April, risk-taking could impact you financially, and a pet business project could be up against a loss. It’s important not to allow ego to get in the way of common sense. Wait for the Sun-Pluto trine in mid-May to find a way to resolve the situation.
The Lunar Eclipse at the end of May occurs in Sagittarius, together with the Solar Eclipse in your relationships zone on June 10th, suggests a shift in interpersonal relationships. This is most commonly seen with love relationships, but this zone of your chart also deals with business partnerships; if you run a business, negotiate partnerships or otherwise depend heavily on your interpersonal skills in business, you may see an impact there. The second Saturn-Uranus square in mid-June may pertain to this too.
July and August are positive times for work, career and business matters. A stabilizing Mars-Saturn opposition on July 1st helps you strike a balance between pushing the boundaries versus maintaining the status quo. With Venus and Mars both moving into Virgo and into your career zone in late July, you certainly have the tools to shake things up, fix the stress of your everyday working life and get things back on track. A very positive Mars-Pluto trine on September 6th also suggests an increase in income or a promotion.
Once Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius, your communications zone, on October 18th, you should become more adept at time management, effectively expanding the number of hours in your day and further decreasing your feelings of stress and overload. The Lunar Eclipse in your everyday work zone on November 19th highlights resistance to your new plans, but the Solar Eclipse in your own sign, Sagittarius, on December 4th will help you stand your ground. The final Saturn-Uranus square occurs during the holiday period and is bookended by two Venus-Pluto conjunctions, one when Venus is direct and one when Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn – these may be key moments for you to judge which you value more: your job or your quality of life.
Your challenge this year, Capricorn, is to work out what you truly value. Financial constraints may prevent you from doing some of the things you’d love to do, but events will show you how happiness doesn’t depend on material things. A Mars-Uranus conjunction on January 20th in your pleasure zone may be a catalyst for some of this frustration, as something you want remains financially just out of reach.
This build-up heads straight into the first, in mid-February, of three transformational Saturn-Uranus squares due this year. Not getting what you want, whether it’s a vacation, hobby materials you can’t afford, or someone’s attention, ruffles you deeply and you may become unusually agitated, especially when Mars trines Pluto on February 25th.
You may find some answers when you manage to increase your income, Capricorn: late March and late April both show promise here, with Mars in trine aspect first to Saturn and then to Jupiter, hinting at new income streams or a profitable side hustle. Creatively, you’re on fire too, especially in late April when the Sun and Venus both conjunct innovative Uranus in your creativity zone. However, the Lunar Eclipse in your spiritual zone in late May highlights a gap in your life that can’t be filled by buying expensive pleasures. The following Solar Eclipse on June 10th occurs in your work routines zone, asking you to make space in your life for the more intangible, less material issues. And yet just a few days later, the second of the Saturn-Uranus squares again suggests frustration over your financial limits. The message doesn’t seem to be getting through at this point.
During July and August, however, you’ll enjoy some profound experiences which will shift your thinking away from materialism. When Mars in your growth zone opposes Saturn in your money zone on July 1st, you’ll start to understand what money cannot buy; this may be reinforced, especially in terms of your love life, during the passionate Venus-Mars conjunction in your growth zone in mid-July. Early August sees Venus in trine aspect to both Uranus and then Pluto, showing you how learning, travel, creativity, love and joy are all things which bring you exceptional happiness and which, largely, do not depend on money.
Your career continues to be important to you, of course, notably in October when Mars trines Jupiter from your career zone. However, Jupiter turning direct in your values zone on October 18th underlines your new-found commitment to greater things than materialism. The Lunar Eclipse on November 19th occurs in your joy zone and could indeed bring great joy – while the Solar Eclipse on December 4th is in your spiritual zone, marking an exceptionally poignant moment for you.
During the holiday period, the final Saturn-Uranus square takes effect and you may feel under the same kind of financial pressure as is normal for this time of year – but Venus’ short retrograde period, in your own zodiac sign, Capricorn, reminds you to reflect on the importance of love and happiness away from the consumerism of the season.
The ‘what you want’ zone of your chart, activated by this year’s three Saturn-Uranus squares, typically reflects issues around hobbies or creative projects, but it also has a key role to play in love, speaking to the flirtatious, magical, intoxicating stages of a relationship – or to illicit love, or love which involves risk. Because this zone is so triggered by this year’s cosmic events, your love life could be tumultuous, depending on how settled and established your relationship already is.
In late January, Venus conjuncts Pluto in your own zodiac sign, which could suggest something dramatic around an intense relationship. Or, if you’re single, Capricorn, a meeting which seems somehow ‘fated’ or ‘meant to be’. However, this leads into the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares in mid-February, which pit the value of the status quo against the value of something new and different. In love, it’s easy to see how this may relate to an intense, new attraction versus an existing, stable relationship. In late February, you’ll feel significantly less risk-averse than normal, particularly when Mars trines Pluto, so this could be a factor.
April 23rd may also be an important date in your love calendar. On this date, passionate – but volatile – Mars shifts into your love zone. On the same date, Venus conjuncts rebel Uranus in your love affair and risk zone; one week later, the Sun repeats the conjunction. In an existing relationship, you may feel bored or frustrated. In a new relationship, the intensity may seem all-consuming.
May’s Lunar Eclipse is in the most private and secretive zone of your chart, Capricorn, suggesting that anything hidden may not stay that way for long: this is not a good time to be lying in love. Indeed, the Mars-Pluto opposition on June 5th highlights a power struggle or control issue in an existing relationship, just days before the Solar Eclipse wreaks unwanted changes on your daily routines. This in itself comes just days before the second of the Saturn-Uranus squares pitting your values against your desires.
During July and August, you will have plenty of opportunities to decide what you want in your yearly love. Travel is suggested, especially in early August when Venus trines Uranus and Pluto, and travel or educational opportunities link to love, learning and your own identity. However, it may not really be until Jupiter turns direct in your values zone on October 18th that the fog finally clears in your love life. A month later, on November 19th, the Lunar Eclipse in your risk and love affairs zone should signal a turning point in matters of the heart. Use the energy of the Solar Eclipse on December 4th to retreat and consider your position in love.
In December, Venus in your own zodiac sign forms two intense conjunctions with Pluto – one on the 11th and the second on the 25th, after having turned retrograde on the 19th. Expect to re-visit the decision you made around the time of the Lunar Eclipse; this is your second chance to get things right. The third and final Saturn-Uranus square in late December will create tension once again, but with Venus due to turn direct on New Year’s Day, 2022, you will know where your heart wants to go, Capricorn.
Your income seems to be a key concern of yours during 2021 – no matter how financially secure you may be, you’ll sense a need or a desire to earn more, which will conflict with changes in your values and your slow transition to a less materialistic style of life. The first hints of this come in mid-January, when Mars squares up to Saturn and Jupiter squares up to Uranus, but the first real hit will come in mid-February when the first Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact.
If you work in the creative industries, Capricorn, February does have some good news, notably the Mars-Pluto trine on February 25th. In any other industry, March looks like a promising month. Mars moves into your everyday work zone, driving you forwards and streamlining your schedules, making you more productive ahead of a stabilizing Mars-Saturn trine on March 22nd. April 17th also brings promise, with an inspirational Mars-Jupiter trine, which is especially helpful for those working in the media, IT, tech or science fields.
May’s Lunar Eclipse is likely to give you pause for thought regarding your current career path, and whether it truly aligns with your values or not. When Mercury turns retrograde in your working zone on May 29th, you’ll have a few days to consider your options ahead of a dramatic Solar Eclipse in your working zone on June 10th. Be aware that doing nothing is a decision in itself in the eyes of the universe, Capricorn, and that eclipses tend to force our hand when we’re reluctant to otherwise act. Just a few days later, the second of the Uranus-Saturn squares highlights money, or the lack of it, and the freedom it may or may not buy you.
There are warnings in July and August not to borrow too much, Capricorn, or to be careful around matters of investment and debt. Be sure to take expert advice, especially around July 1st, when Mars opposes Saturn from your debt zone, and on August 20th, when the Sun opposes over-enthusiastic Jupiter from the same place.
If you are looking to shore up your career position, however, September should be a positive month. Mars arrives in your career zone early on, and both Mars and the Sun form supportive trines to Saturn late in the month. This may see you involved in a promotion of some kind, as may the Sun-Mars conjunction in your career zone on October 8th.
In mid-October, generous Jupiter turns direct in your money zone, which is typically a good sign for your income. Over the next few days, Mars trines Jupiter and squares Pluto, providing a further boost to your income, although potentially at a cost to your deeper values. The Lunar Eclipse on November 19th occurs in your creativity zone and may fill you with inspiration for the future.
During December, however, the early Solar Eclipse in your privacy zone may give you pause for thought again about your future career direction. Use the energies of the third and final Saturn-Uranus square, over the holiday period, to force yourself to a conclusive view, one way or the other, so that you can face 2022 with confidence.
For you, Aquarius, 2021 is about forming a better understanding of your roots and your own identity. This may involve changes or upheaval in your family or domestic life, or it may manifest as more of an internal, psychological journey. Either way, it’s activated by the three powerful and rare Saturn-Uranus squares this year.
During the second week of January, the Sun conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn, your secrecy zone, and sets you wondering about all things hidden, including elements of your heritage or past. Surprising family revelations may also trigger curiosity, especially when Mars conjuncts Uranus later in the month, and when Mercury turns retrograde in your own sign of Aquarius on January 30th. This leads up to the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares on February 17th, when you may experience conflict between who you are and who you thought you were, or how you want to live your life versus your family’s expectations for you.
It’s likely that looking backwards, to your roots, will provide interesting insight, especially when Mars trines Pluto in late February, and when Mars trines Saturn in late March. It may not be until the Mars-Jupiter trine on April 17th that you gain the confidence to express yourself, however. In the last week of April, first Venus and then the Sun conjunct unpredictable Uranus – your ruling planet, remember – in your family zone, so change may become inevitable there, Aquarius.
The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in late May falls in your social zone, and indeed it could be with the aid of friends or associates that increase further in confidence in your self-expression, as suggested by the Solar Eclipse in Gemini, your most expressive zone, on June 10th. A few days later, in mid-June, the second of the Saturn-Uranus squares, again questioning your freedom of self versus your family expectations or responsibilities. This time, with argumentative Mars in your love zone, it may impact more directly on your relationship too. The Mars-Saturn opposition on July 1st highlights a stalemate in love, but the passionate Venus-Mars conjunction in your love zone on July 13th provides reassurance that your love life is still going strong.
Look to interesting trines in early August, from Venus to Uranus and then to Pluto, for further insight into your family and roots, perhaps with something hidden coming to light. Whatever you discover appears to boost your personal growth and your personal power, with the Mars-Pluto trine in early September being particularly helpful.
Jupiter turns direct in your identity zone on October 18th, giving you temporary cause for celebration at having resolved your family issues. However, the Lunar Eclipse on November 19th is in Taurus, which is your family zone, so there is still some work to do and perhaps one more shock to withstand. Venus turns retrograde in your secrecy zone on December 19th, just ahead of the final Saturn-Uranus trine over the holiday period. Deep personal reflection is called for at this time, but with Jupiter settling into Pisces, your values zone, on December 29th, it looks as if you will face 2022 from a more secure foundation.
Obviously, your quest to better understand your family dynamics or personal heritage does impact your love life and your wider interpersonal relationships this year, Aquarius. By and large, however, 2021 looks set to be a stable and fulfilling year for you in love astrology; you will need to be flexible on the domestic front, but any upheaval there will likely bring you and a partner closer together in the long run.
Venus arrives in your own sign at the start of February, so the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares hits while you are enjoying an overall open and supportive love vibe. You’re also able to enjoy spicing up an existing relationship in March, Aquarius, when Mars trines Saturn from your joy and dating zone – this would be an interesting time to meet a new love too, if you’re single, although you’d need to be careful not to rush into things. April 17th sees another Mars trine from your dating zone, this time to Jupiter in your own sign, which could be another interesting moment if you’re single.
During May, Venus transits your dating zone too, but the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius in late May in your social zone suggests that any new relationship at this time might be better off starting as a friendship until mutual trust can be established. The Solar Eclipse in your dating zone on June 10th carries a similar element of caution. Just a few days later, the second of the Saturn-Uranus squares takes effect, so your mind is likely to be elsewhere in this period in any case.
July and August, however, are much more promising. The Venus-Mars conjunction in your love zone in mid-July is a lovely thing to behold, and it’s followed later in July by a both Venus and Mars opposing Jupiter – there is a lively, spicy tension here which is ideal for keeping a love relationship interesting or for re-invigorating a relationship which may have lost its magic. When Mars pushes into your intimacy zone in late July, it’s definitely time to carve out some quality private time with your other half.
September has some potentially intense moments for romance, notably the Mars-Neptune opposition on September 2nd, and the Mars-Pluto trine a few days later. Both of these have spiritual overtones, making this a good time to investigate the karmic links which bind you and your lover together, Aquarius.
Jupiter turning direct in your own sign in mid-October is a confidence-booster in love as in everything else, but the Lunar Eclipse in your family zone on November 19th does suggest that upheaval is still on the way.
There are two interesting Venus-Pluto conjunctions in December; one on the 11th and a second on the 25th after Venus turns retrograde; these occur in Capricorn, your spiritual and privacy zone. With the last of the Saturn-Uranus squares also taking place over the holiday period, this is a good time for reflection and pause. You have learned a lot about who you are; now you must decide where you want to go in love.
Although your major focus this year is likely to be on family matters, that doesn’t mean you won’t still be making progress in your career. Early in the year, however, you will want to be careful with your finances. Guard against over-spending, especially once luxury-loving Venus arrives in Pisces, your money zone, in late February. Indeed, the Sun and Venus both conjunct deceptive Neptune in your money zone during the second week of March, and you should be sure to take extra advice at this time.
One of the earliest and most innovative periods in astrology for career progression is between late March and late April. Mars forms two powerful trines to bookend this period; first with Saturn and then with Jupiter. Both are likely to enhance your drive and your creativity too, enabling you to bring bright ideas to the table at work.
Expansive, generous, fortunate Jupiter arrives in your money zone on May 13th. Between then and June 20th – when Jupiter turns retrograde – you can greatly enhance your financial prospects. The Venus-Jupiter trine on June 3rd looks especially promising in this regard, as does the Sun-Jupiter trine later in the month. However, the Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your risk zone, so it’s vital that you stay away from gambling or financial risks where you cannot afford to lose.
Spending could become an issue again in late July, particularly when first Venus and then Mars opposes Jupiter from Virgo, your debt zone. Seek financial advice regarding any borrowing or investments at this time; don’t fool yourself into thinking you know better. The Mars-Neptune opposition on September 2nd is another potential flashpoint where a debt or investment could be based on shaky ground.
Once Mars moves into your career zone in late October, however, you will be intensely motivated to move forwards in your working life. At first, you may feel frustrated. A Mars-Saturn square on November 10th suggests that your career is hampering your personal life or your identity in some way; the Sun-Jupiter square on November 15th tells a similar story, as does the Mars-Uranus opposition a couple of days later. If work is getting in the way of your family life or your relationship, this may become dramatically apparent during the Lunar Eclipse on November 19th. However, any drama at this time does clear the way for a new understanding to be reached. The Solar Eclipse in your objectives zone on December 4th suggests that you might need to reset everyone’s expectations about your career, Aquarius, including your own.
December sees your family and personal life back in the limelight, and the final Saturn-Uranus square during the holiday period may put thoughts of your career on the backburner. However, with fortunate Jupiter settling down into your money zone in the last days of 2021, 2022 looks set to be a rewarding and lucrative time.
2021 is an important year in your spiritual growth, Pisces. In February, June and December, three incidences of a rare and powerful Saturn-Uranus square will play out in your astrology chart, activating your communication zone and your spirituality zone – in practical terms, this is about learning to fulfill your spiritual gifts by speaking or writing, learning or teaching on spiritual topics.
In January, you may feel very conscious of what others think, with the Sun and Venus both forming conjunctions to oppressive Pluto in Capricorn, your social zone. This may impact your self-confidence, and when Mercury turns retrograde in your secrecy zone at the end of January, it will be tempting to hide away. However, in the second week of February, Venus and Mercury both form conjunctions to Jupiter in Aquarius, your spiritual zone. This could be something of a revelation for you, revealing that you need to teach or express your spiritual knowledge. When the first Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact on February 17th, your initial efforts to do so may be misjudged, ignored or even ridiculed. Hang on in there. We’re not done yet.
The Lunar Eclipse on May 26th occurs in your career zone, however, and for a while your focus will switch to your career ambitions and your need to make a living. The Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your family zone, reminding you of your responsibilities over and above your quest for spiritual growth. With Mars pushing into your work zone at the end of June, you will be able to work hard and make up for any lost time earlier in the year; Jupiter’s arrival in your own sign, Pisces, on June 13th will help too, but only until Jupiter turns retrograde on June 20th. The Mars-Saturn opposition on July 1st pits your everyday work against your spiritual urges, as does the Sun-Jupiter opposition on August 20th. Somehow, you will have to find a way to reconcile your career with your desire for spiritual growth.
It’s probably not until Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius, your spiritual zone, on October 18th that the fog will start to clear about this. With Mars moving into your philosophy zone on October 30th, you are set to learn more about your chosen spiritual path, and perhaps even about how you could forge a meaningful career in this area. However, the Lunar Eclipse in your communication zone on November 19th, followed swiftly by a Solar Eclipse in your career zone on December 4th, warns you not to push too far too fast, Pisces.
During the holiday period in late December, the Saturn-Uranus square becomes exact for the final time, and this time it’s likely to push you into action. Expect the holiday period to be a crucial time for you in deciding how to honor your spiritual path and how to lead, teach and innovate in this area. Jupiter settles into your own sign, Pisces – to stay for some while – in the last days of 2021 – a beautiful hint that, by then, you may be well on the way towards embodying your true spiritual path as a wisdom-sharer.
It’s a relatively quiet year for your love life, but there are positive indications that your principal relationship will remain strong and supportive.
You’ll probably first feel the effects of this support in late March, when Mars trines Saturn in your spiritual zone, from your family zone, helping to remove obstacles and to fire up your enthusiasm for your chosen path. This is mirrored by a very helpful Mars-Jupiter trine in mid-April. Later in April, with Mars moving into your play zone, you will have opportunities to spice up an existing relationship or to rekindle the magic in a love affair which may have stagnated. The magical Mars-Neptune trine on May 31st is an example of a key date in your love life; the trine between Venus and Jupiter on June 3rd is another.
Be careful to balance your working life with your love life and family life during May and June, however. The Lunar Eclipse on May 26th is in your career zone and is followed by the Solar Eclipse on June 10th in your family zone. As supportive as your family may be, don’t make them second best in your priority list by spending too much time at work.
Late July sees both Venus and Mars start to move through the love zone of your chart, and this looks like a settled and happy period for an established relationship. If you are single and looking for love, mid-August could bring some interesting encounters when Venus shifts into Libra, your passion zone. However, the Mars-Neptune opposition on September 2nd adds an element of possible confusion or deception into your love life, so be very careful before you give someone new your full trust. Mercury turning retrograde in Libra, your passion zone, in late September is another potential warning sign for a new relationship – take it slowly, Pisces.
When Jupiter turns direct in your spiritual zone on October 18th, you’ll be very keen to share your beliefs and your discoveries with your partner. This would be a lovely time to explore the karmic links which bind you together, and to share your secret dreams and fantasies.
Moving into November, friendships and your social life look increasingly important, especially once Venus moves into Capricorn, your social zone, in early November. If you are single at this point, a friendship may become something more than just a friendship – but do watch out for the Lunar Eclipse in your acquaintances zone on November 19th. Sudden changes in interpersonal relationships may be tricky at this point. The ensuing Solar Eclipse in your career zone on December 4th may be a reminder that work-family balance issues still need ironing out.
Venus forms two conjunctions with compelling Pluto in December; one on the 11th and another on the 25th, having turned retrograde. Both of these occur in your social zone, so again, if you are single, there may be an admirer closer than you realized. However, don’t rush into anything. Jupiter is due to settle into your own sign on December 29th, and that is when your true inner confidence will start to shine.
There look to be quite a few training and development opportunities on the way for you in 2021, Pisces. The first is likely to come out of the blue around January 20th, when Mars conjuncts Uranus. However, your desire to pursue a more spiritual pathway is a concern for you throughout the year and the first Saturn-Uranus square on February 17th makes you second guess your need or desire for extra training or more qualifications.
A helpful Mars-Pluto trine opens your eyes wide on February 25th, however, and shows you that there is more than one way to work in a spiritual fashion. Conjunctions between first Venus and Uranus and then the Sun and Uranus in your learning zone in late April will also bring opportunities to learn and to grow, as will the Sun-Pluto trine on May 17th.
Nevertheless, it’s the Lunar Eclipse in your career zone on May 26th that really shakes things up. You may be dissatisfied with your career for all kinds of reasons, not just your underlying spiritual motives. However, the Solar Eclipse on June 10th occurs in your family zone and urges you not to take drastic action while you have family responsibilities. The second Saturn-Uranus square hits days later and increases your feeling of being trapped in your current job. With Mars starting to move through your everyday work zone, however, you’ll feel able to make some changes there which will help your job suit you much better.
Be careful with money and investments in late September, when Mercury turns retrograde in this area of your chart. You may be kidding yourself over something financial, and when the Sun conjuncts Mars here on October 8th, it’s important to avoid impulsive decisions.
More training opportunities start to appear in late October, when Mars shifts into your training zone. In November, you may feel that you’re being led even further away from your chosen path, especially on November 10th when Mars squares Saturn and November 15th when the Sun squares Jupiter. Not so. If you can run with the idea of training and more qualifications, do so – because the Lunar Eclipse in your learning zone on November 19th will show that this was the right thing to do. The swiftly following Solar Eclipse in your career zone on December 4th further underlines this. Change and upheaval are on the way but working in your favor, Pisces.
During the holiday period in late December, the final Saturn-Uranus square takes place, asking you yet again whether you are ready to embody your role as a spiritual teacher. With the changes and training you have experienced in your career thus far this year, you are likely to be in a position to say yes, at last. This is why, when Jupiter settles into your own sign of Pisces in the last few days of 2021, you should feel very inspired and optimistic about 2022.
It’s an unusually quiet start to the year for you, Aries, especially with Mercury going retrograde first in your friendship zone and then in your career zone between January 14th and February 3rd. Spend time focused on your family and your personal life, particularly during the Full Moon on January 17th.
Life speeds up again when Mars moves into your social zone on March 6th, and the Aries New Moon on April 1st is bright, positive and packed with energy for you. Expect to feel a little out of your depth, however, when Jupiter conjuncts Neptune in your spiritual zone on April 12th. You are being urged to think more deeply about life, but this may be an uncomfortable process.
The Solar Eclipse on April 30th occurs in your money zone and is one of a series of Eclipses this year that will rock your financial stability. Don’t panic; the Jupiter-Pluto sextile on May 3rd is promising for your career, but you may have to simply get used to being less secure than you might like.
Jupiter arrives in your sign on May 10th, bringing you a huge burst of confidence and optimism. At this point, life can be very much what you make it, although the Lunar Eclipse on May 16th reminds you powerfully that money could still be an issue. Look to the arrival of your ruler Mars into Aries on May 24th for a fresh, can-do approach to life.
The Northern Hemisphere’s summer looks set to be adventurous and inspirational on several fronts. The Super Full Moon in your adventure zone on June 14th promises plenty of action, and the New Moon in your family zone on June 28th is loving and full of joy. If you’re single, look to Venus changing signs on July 17th – this is a prime time for meeting someone new.
As the Equinox approaches, however, things may get trickier, Aries. Mercury turns retrograde in your love zone on September 9th, so communication will be very important. It’s not all bad news – the New Moon in your love zone on September 25th promises a fresh start, backed by Venus’ arrival in your love zone just days later. If you can keep talking, you’ll soon be back in love once more.
October 9th sees an emotional Full Moon in Aries which may prompt angst and indecision. The last two Eclipses of the year – a Solar Eclipse on October 25th and its partner Lunar Eclipse on November 8th – both point to money issues again, perhaps with a certain amount of pride on your part, if you don’t wish to accept help.
However, you will work it out. Jupiter is set to re-enter Aries from Pisces on December 20th, pushing you to resolve any outstanding issues in grand style. A few days later, the New Moon in your career zone on December 23rd promises good things ahead, and the easing of financial pressure for sure.
2022 begins on an even keel, Aries, romance-wise. It’s a quiet period in January, although the Full Moon in your family zone on January 17th is sweet and sentimental. If you do date someone new during this early period, however, be very careful that you’re not being taken for a ride. The Full Moon in your dating zone on February 16th suggests that you might be being much more gullible than normal.
March looks set to be a buoyant and fun time for your love life. Venus and Mars both move into your social zone on March 6th; if you’re happily in love, this is a great time for entertaining or partying. If you’re single and looking for love, you may find it in a long-term friend who becomes so much more.
The New Moon in Aries on April 1st is a good indicator of a new beginning, although Venus’ arrival in your secrecy zone on April 5th suggests that any new relationship at this time may be somewhat shrouded in mystery. Indeed, Mars’ arrival in your secrecy zone on April 14th is immediately followed by a Full Moon in your love zone the next day – if anything illicit is going on, this could be a crunch point.
Look to May 2nd and the arrival of Venus in your own sign for a more upbeat and less complicated approach to love. When jovial Jupiter enters Aries from Pisces on May 10th, this will further boost your love life, turning you into irresistible company.
However, the Lunar Eclipse on May 16th occurs in a chart zone that doesn’t only cover shared finances – it covers jealousy, passion, sex and power too. If this eclipse doesn’t impact your money, it will impact your love life.
Fortunately, the repercussions from this don’t seem to last. By July 17th, Venus is in your family zone, bringing warmth and harmony, while on July 28th, a New Moon in your dating zone is very positive news.
After a summer of romance, however, communication may suffer in September, when Mercury turns retrograde in your love zone on the 9th. The New Moon in your love zone on the 25th will help, as will the arrival of Venus here on the 29th, but you will need to be sure to keep talking.
Passion heats up again when Venus moves into your excitement zone on October 23rd, but hot on the heels of this, two Eclipses – on October 25th and November 8th – could de-stabilize your love life again, if your passion or lust has outweighed your fidelity or your values.
Things may not settle down from this until mid-December – when Venus moves into your status zone on December 9th, you’ll start to feel more in control, but it’s important that if you play with fire, you accept the risks.
It’s this year’s Eclipse cycle that is most likely to have an impact on your financial health, Aries. Spanning the axis in your natal birth chart between what is yours versus what belongs to or should be shared with others, the Eclipses will ask you some serious questions about your financial values, ethics and ambitions.
The year starts well enough, however, with a Super New Moon in your career zone on January 2nd, so you will be itching to get back to work. Your ruler Mars moves into your career zone on January 24th, further heightening your ambitions and drive.
Early March is a positive period for you too, as Venus, Mars and Pluto all form a stellium in your career zone, giving you the power to change hearts as well as minds, especially in business. This is backed up by your increasing confidence, as reflected in the Aries New Moon on April 1st.
However, April 30th sees the first of the Eclipses – a Solar Eclipse in your money zone – which is likely to bring some shocks or unpleasant surprises. A few days later, the Jupiter-Pluto sextile hints that your career path may need to take a more spiritual turn for maximum opportunity – but with bountiful Jupiter arriving in your own sign on May 10th, you may not heed this message. Instead, you’ll feel confident about forging ahead with your existing plans – perhaps until the Lunar Eclipse on May 16th hits your shared resources zone, and someone calls in debts, be they financial or emotional.
Luxury-loving Venus moves into your money zone on May 28th, so you will need to be careful with spending for a month or two. Fortunately, Mars moves into your money zone on July 5th, boosting both your drive and your ability to earn more money. An emotional Full Moon in your career zone on July 13th, however, may still be pushing the message about job satisfaction rather than big money.
When Jupiter turns retrograde in your own sign on July 28th, you will need to stop and consider what you really want from life. The very same day, a New Moon in your creativity zone shows you possibilities you’d never before considered: there is another way to earn your keep. Work on this over the Northern Hemisphere’s summer and with luck, you will have reached some kind of conclusion by the time the Aries Full Moon forces a decision on October 9th.
The last of the Eclipses come on October 25th and November 8th, by which time you should have a better understanding of yourself, your money and your hopes. Look to the arrival of Venus in your career zone on December 9th – this brightens your mood and encourages imagination. When Jupiter arrives back in Aries on December 20th, you will have a new plan and a new mission – be ready to act during the New Moon in your career zone on December 23rd.
The first few weeks of 2022 are introspective, particularly with Mercury retrograde in your public zone from January 14th. However, Mars shifts into your adventure and learning zone on January 24th and is joined by your forward-moving ruler Venus on the 29th, making you feel somewhat restless and keen to seek out new experiences.
Some of this will be felt in your career, particularly during the New Moon in Aquarius on February 1st and the Full Moon in Leo of February 16th. You should consider your work-life balance in that period.
The Jupiter-Uranus sextile of February 17th brings you great insight via teamwork, your community or your humanitarian instincts. There are opportunities for work here, but also for personal growth. Think about moving professionally into a worthwhile sphere of work.
This thread is continued when Mars and Venus both shift into your career zone on March 6th, and it’s further underlined when the rare Jupiter-Neptune conjunction illuminates your community zone on April 12th.
Late spring and summer in the Northern Hemisphere are more focused on your personal life, with the Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30th bringing some shockwaves, for sure. In your relationships, family life or interpersonal sphere, it may be time to take stock. Jupiter arrives in your privacy zone on May 10th, just before a Lunar Eclipse in your love zone on the 16th, so you would be well-advised to turn down the temperature and to deal with these matters privately and without drama.
You’ll feel more confident when Venus moves into Taurus on May 28th, and your self-esteem gets a further boost on July 5th when Mars moves into Taurus too. These are good periods for addressing any underlying angst in your personal life, before the second set of Eclipses create additional turmoil in the Northern Hemisphere’s fall months.
Venus moves into your love zone on October 23rd, which will help to smooth over ruffled feathers in a partnership – but the Solar Eclipse in your love zone a couple of days later does feel rather fated. Conflict between your personal life and your career ambitions may be to blame here. Try to get things back on an even keel before the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th.
Early winter in the Northern Hemisphere is a quieter and more satisfying period for you this year, with little to trouble your routines and normality during the run-up to the festive season. On December 20th, Jupiter moves back into your privacy zone following its earlier retrograde period, but this time the emphasis is on spiritual growth. Embrace the true meaning of the holiday period and look for ways in which you can grow your spiritual understanding as the year draws to a close.
Love and relationships are likely to be a major issue for you this year, Taurus, given the series of Eclipses around your own zodiac sign and your opposite sign. It’s going to be important to keep a cool head and to stay rooted in your values.
Early signs of tension in your love life may be evident around the Full Moon in your family zone on February 16th, if you’re already settled with a family, or during the Full Moon in your dating and risk zone on March 18th if you’re single or in an early stage of your relationship.
If you are actively looking for love, the beautiful Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on April 12th is interesting – this occurs in your friendship zone, but hints at romance and karmic connections with someone you already know well. A few days later, passionate Mars arrives in this area of your natal birth chart too, so matters may progress quickly.
However, the first major sign of trouble occurs around April 30th with the Solar Eclipse in your own sign. This may find you doubting yourself, your lover or your future together, especially if anything illicit is revealed. Venus moves into your secrecy zone days later on May 2nd, hinting either that something underhand is being revealed or that you will need time, space and privacy to cope with what has happened. Be kind to yourself, especially during the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone on May 16th, which is when matters may really come to a head.
Remember that Eclipses bring drama and shocks, but these can be keys to transformation for the better, if we allow them to be. Whatever happens, your confidence will start to rise when Mars arrives in Taurus on July 5th, and the lovely New Moon in your family zone on July 28th is a reassuring sign too; the latter is backed up by the arrival of Venus in your family zone on August 11th.
If you are single in August, the 27th is a very good time for dating or finding new love, as the New Moon shines from your dating zone. With Venus moving into this zone in early September too, the signs are good for a well-starred meeting.
Your love life appears to stabilize in late October when Venus moves into your love zone – but just two days later, a Solar Eclipse in that same zone may remind you that there is still unfinished business. Look to the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th for emotional closure.
The very next day, a tense T-square involving your own sign, your opposite sign and your career zone suggests that love will need careful handling when it comes under pressure from your working life. However, overall, the signs for the rest of 2022 are calm and loving, at least from a relationship standpoint.
You may be looking for a fresh start in how you earn your living early in the year, especially around the time of the New Moon in Aquarius on February 1st, which falls in your career zone. It could take you a while to figure out where you want to go, but the powerful Jupiter-Uranus sextile on February 17th points you firmly towards community-focused work of some kind; you’ll definitely want to be making a difference.
Venus and Mars both move into your career zone on March 6th, giving you the go-ahead to start making changes if you wish, driven both by your ambitions and by your emotional intelligence. The Full Moon in your creativity and risk zone on March 18th highlights how great gains can be made if you’re brave enough to try.
The Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30th and its partner Lunar Eclipse in your relationship zone on May 16th could bring drama if you are in a business partnership of any kind. There are trust issues around this Eclipse series, so don’t allow yourself to be fooled. Meanwhile, the arrival of Jupiter in your secrecy zone could point towards career opportunities in mental health work, institutions or psychic/divination work of some kind.
You can expect good financial vibes when the New Moon on May 30th shines from your money zone, but with Saturn turning retrograde in your career zone on June 4th, itchy feet regarding your career direction are not going away any time soon. Watch out also for extravagant spending when Venus moves into your money zone on June 22nd.
The Full Moon in your career zone on August 11th is likely to be a crunch point in any career decisions you need to make. Be bold and don’t allow money to be the over-riding factor in your choice. As evidenced by the arrival of Mars in your money zone on August 20th, you have what it takes to succeed financially even if you are changing direction.
Being a cautious zodiac sign by nature, however, you may second guess yourself for many more weeks yet. The tense opposition early in October shows you are still wrestling with issues of risk, money and purpose in life, although the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th is likely to force your hand one way or the other.
Opt for a scaled-down festive season while you adjust to any new career options or financial constraints. The Full Moon in your money zone on December 7th warns against extravagant spending, so keep a tight budget if you can.
Finding meaning in life, particularly in your career, is likely to be a key concern for you this year. With your ruler Mercury turning retrograde in Aquarius, your learning zone, on January 14th you will recognize early on that you have much to gain from new knowledge, particularly when Mars moves into your self-improvement zone on January 24th.
The Aquarius New Moon in your learning zone on February 1st is a promising time for studying or picking up new skills, and you will find inspiration from the Jupiter-Uranus sextile on February 17th, which shows you hints of a diverse and unusual career path.
During early March, your drive for self-improvement continues, aided by Venus, Mars and Pluto all in a stellium in this area of your natal birth chart. The Pisces New Moon in your career zone on March 2nd is a prime time for a new beginning, as is the beautiful and highly spiritual Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, also in your career zone, on April 12th. Just a few days later on the 14th, Mars moves into your career zone too, greatly increasing your ambition and determination.
This year’s set of Eclipses, however, warn of stress and the consequences of burning the candle at both ends. A Solar Eclipse on April 30th may be a warning sign; if this warning is not heeded, you can expect some potential well-being issues around the time of the Lunar Eclipse in your health zone on May 16th. Make time to chill out, especially once Jupiter brings joy to your social zone on May 10th. That same day, Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini, but an active social life will keep you smiling along.
The focus turns to love during the Gemini New Moon on May 30th and the following Super Full Moon on June 14th, which occurs in your love zone. This is a great time for starting a new relationship or for committing more deeply to an existing one. Venus’ arrival in Gemini on June 23rd is another feel-good moment to cherish.
Spend plenty of time on family and domestic matters in August. You will have plenty of energy, courtesy of Mars in your zodiac sign from August 20th; the New Moon on August 27th is in your family zone and Venus arrives here too on September 5th, so this could be a blissful couple of weeks for sure.
In September, however, a Pisces Full Moon in your career zone on the 10th coincides with Mercury retrograde in your creativity zone, so don’t be surprised if you feel stalled at work. October 5th sees a tense T-square affecting your work-life balance, which could cause stress. Again, take this as a warning sign ahead of the Solar Eclipse in your health zone on October 25th. Mars will be turning retrograde in Gemini on October 30th and for the rest of the year, so energy levels will drop. Scale your activities down, as demonstrated by the November 8th Lunar Eclipse in your rest zone.
Even though you’ll be tired, early winter in the Northern Hemisphere is a good time for romance. Venus moves into your love zone on November 16th and the New Moon here on November 23rd is a delight. A Full Moon in Gemini on December 7th rounds the year out in a celebratory style.
It’s a passionate and steamy start to the year for your love life. Mars moves into your passion zone on January 24th and is swiftly joined by forward-moving Venus on the 28th. Within an existing relationship, the temperature soars for all the right reasons, and remains hot right through early March when Venus and Mars are joined by Pluto in a racy stellium.
If you’re single or newly dating someone, take care around April 16th. A Full Moon in your dating zone is overly emotional and dramatic and could lead to events spiraling out of control.
Your mental health may impact your love life during the Solar Eclipse in your privacy zone on April 30th – don’t be surprised if you’re just less keen to date for a while. Focus instead on your friendships and social life. Venus moves into your social zone on May 2nd, as does joyful Jupiter on May 10th. By the time Mars arrives here on May 24th, you will have been boosted and lifted up by friends who love you, right in time for the empowering New Moon in Gemini on May 30th.
There’s better news for romance of all kinds during the Super Full Moon in your love zone on June 14th. Venus moves into Gemini on June 22nd, making it much easier for you to express your feelings and declare your love. The passion ramps up again too, especially ahead of the Super Full Moon in your passion zone on July 13th – this is an excellent period for dating someone new or indeed for rekindling the spark in an existing relationship.
During late August, Mars arrives in Gemini, boosting your confidence in love, as in everything else; the New Moon on August 27th is an especially promising time for your interpersonal relationships, as is Venus changing signs on September 5th.
Be careful with dating from September 9th, however, as Mercury turns retrograde in your party zone then, so it will be all too easy for your words or actions to be taken badly. Nonetheless, the New Moon in your dating zone on September 25th remains one of the best times of the year for meeting someone new and is backed up just a few days later by support from Venus too.
From 30th October, you may feel a little drained as Mars turns retrograde in your sign. Spend the Northern Hemisphere’s fall months quietly with your sweetheart or enjoy the peace and privacy of being single, if that’s the case. A Lunar Eclipse in your privacy zone on November 8th reminds you of the importance of loving yourself before you love anyone else, and once Venus moves into your love zone on November 16th, you’ll feel peace, harmony and happiness.
It looks set to be a lovely festive period too, with a Gemini Full Moon on December 7th turning you into a party animal, while a New Moon in your passion zone on December 23rd is a wonderful way to round out the year.
Your career is under the guidance of bountiful Jupiter this year, which is promising! However, on January 17th a Full Moon in your money zone may indicate an early set of financial issues, which will need patience and skill on your part to navigate. Look for business inspiration a month later on February 17th when Jupiter sextiles Uranus – great ideas can be turned into reality during the New Moon in your career zone on March 2nd.
The beautiful Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on April 12th is in your career zone and highlights how important it is for you to connect with others as you work. This is an excellent time for building new networks of contacts, so that when Mars arrives in your career zone on April 14th, you are raring to go.
Burnout could be a real problem around April 30th with the Solar Eclipse in your privacy zone, so try to get adequate rest. On May 3rd, the Jupiter-Pluto sextile may help you find ways of developing your career and yourself with much less stress. However, the Mercury retrograde in Gemini period beginning on May 10th is a tricky one, and the Lunar Eclipse in your well-being zone on May 16th speaks to high stress levels. Wait for the Gemini New Moon on May 30th to recoup some of your flair and energy.
Good financial news is baked into the Northern Hemisphere’s summer, with a New Moon in your money zone on June 28th but do watch out for excess spending when luxury-loving Venus moves in here on July 17th. If you’re looking to start a new business or side hustle, August 20th is an excellent date to aim for, as this is when Mars arrives in Gemini, boosting your drive and confidence to no end.
Expect some creative or professional blocks in September, especially around the 10th when Mercury turns retrograde in your creative zone; the same day also sees a Full Moon in your career zone that could hint at a mini-crisis here. It won’t last long, however – on September 25th a New Moon shines from your creativity zone, and a few days later, Venus enters this zone to boost your imagination and vision.
October, however, sees some tension as you try to balance your working life against your personal life. A tense T-square warns that you cannot have it all on October 5th, and the theme of stress is still present this month too, especially around the Solar Eclipse on October 25th.
Mars turns retrograde in your own zodiac sign on October 30th, so your drive and energy will drop. This could lead to issues at work, or less money coming in if you are self-employed. Be kind to yourself and get some rest. The Lunar Eclipse on November 8th shows you how taking better care of yourself will equal better professional outcomes too.
An overarching theme this year will be your struggle to have your individual voice heard rather than being subsumed in the crowd. This applies in your relationship at the same time – but you start the year 2022 in fine form with a Super New Moon in your love zone on January 2nd. The corresponding Full Moon in your own zodiac sign on January 17th is highly emotional, and when Mars moves into your love zone on January 24th, sparks may fly for all the wrong reasons. It’s not helped by Mercury retrograde shifting back into your love zone in late January, when you may find it much harder work to voice your needs and wants.
Away from your love life, however, the inspiring Jupiter-Uranus sextile on February 17th links the learning zone and the community zone in your natal birth chart and urges you to think about training or education opportunities that you can use for the greater good in the long term. This message is backed up by a confident New Moon in your career zone on April 1st and the deeply meaningful connection between Jupiter and Neptune in your learning zone on April 12th. You are being gifted self-confidence and urged to create meaning through what you learn.
On April 30th, a potent Solar Eclipse in your community zone closes out the first quarter and raises the issue of individuality versus the collective once again.

Watch out for some over-spending in late August and early September; a New Moon in your money zone on August 27th is inspiring, but with luxury-loving Venus clouding your judgment, you will struggle to stick to a budget. Retrograde Mercury moves backward in your money zone in late September, so be careful.
Two more Eclipses – Solar on October 25th and Lunar on November 8th may force you to choose between work and family, but know that this tension is only temporary.

The Lunar Eclipse on May 16th urges you to get beyond what you think you know; you are growing intellectually as well as spiritually.
Some of these changes and challenges in astrology are nerve-wracking, Virgo, so May and June could feel rather edgy. However, a Super Full Moon in your risk zone floods you with bravery on July 13th, enabling you to grow in confidence over the following six weeks until the Virgo New Moon on August 27th, which sees a whole new you ready to emerge.
In early September a complex T-square challenges your identity in terms of who you are, who you choose to be with and which career you choose to follow.

Astrology suggests that your career path is relatively stable this year, Virgo, although the Eclipse cycle does emphasize how you are outgrowing some areas of knowledge – so potentially you may also be outgrowing your job.
To begin with, however, your concerns are more mundane. Colleagues may be difficult to handle in mid-January when Mercury turns retrograde; the arrival of Mars in the most reckless area of your natal birth chart on January 24th doesn’t help, as you are likely to speak first and worry about the consequences later. Nevertheless, a New Moon in the colleagues area of your chart on February 1st smooths things over.
It’s the rare and important Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on April 12th that may create waves in your career.

The emotional Virgo New Moon on August 27th could mark a turning point in how you see yourself, which in turn could drive up your income ahead of the New Moon in your money zone on September 25th. During late September, however, Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, so check any financial details very carefully.
On October 25th and November 8th respectively, another Solar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipse demand that you shift your opinions, your beliefs and your way of doing things. In the middle of this period, on October 30th, Mars turns retrograde in your career zone until the end of the year – this may be a good time to reassess your priorities and your direction of travel.
Jupiter arrives back in your emotional abundance zone on December 20th, so this Northern Hemisphere mid-winter period is a very good time to work on manifestation and your emotional connection to your material goals.
The year starts on a bright note with the Super New Moon in your family zone on January 2nd, which is an excellent time for a new start at home.
