General Yearly for Friday 01 January 2021

   Aries   Mar 21 - Apr 19
There is likely to be some mixed emotions as you move into 2021. Starting the year with Mars, your ruling planet in Aries will give you the drive and motivation to begin the year on your own terms. However, with Mars’ longest visit to Aries in 32 years now in its final days, there is a chance that you are feeling battle weary. Mars will leave on 7th January and this is when the benefits will start to unfold, albeit slowly and in unexpected ways over the coming months. The main impact from Mars’ departure is that a lot of the fight will go out of things and as you start to appreciate that 2021 is not a repeat of 2020, start to feel excited about what the coming year might bring. Saturn and Jupiter are gone from your career sector but the professional momentum not only continues, things are likely to take a lucrative turn during January and February. January is also a chance to get a feel for the new powers on the throne and the planets that will make 2021 a very different year to 2020. It was Jupiter and Saturn’s return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking in the closing weeks of 2020 that has taken a lot of the pressure off you and especially professionally. Yet it goes beyond that, with a sense that you no longer have to prove or push yourself 24/7, yet as a result, the things that you had to fight for in 2020 will start coming to you more effortlessly in 2021. Above all, the main impact from Saturn and Jupiter’s return to your friendship sector is a sense of camaraderie and that as a team player you don’t have to shoulder the full weight on your own. Saturn is here now until 2023 but Jupiter will leave on 14th May before retrograding back in on 29th July. When Jupiter leaves he will return to spend five months in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, where he will begin preparing for his return to Aries in 2022 and the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. Another thing that will give 2021 a sense of movement and exhilaration is that Mars, your ruling planet and the planet that can fire up your passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit is on the move. Having spent the whole second half of 2020 either at a standstill or going backward and forward over the same ground, Mars is now racing across the heavens and invigorating multiple areas of your life over the course of the coming year. Missing too are the relationship challenges of 2020.
 
   Taurus   Apr 20 - May 20
With the Sun always returning to your career sector in January, the year will often get off to a professionally focused start and then by February start to drop off. That won’t be the case this year, even though the faster planets will quickly move through in the first two months of the year. Instead, January is Saturn and Jupiter’s first full month in your career sector and this brings you to the start of what is the most powerful professional year seen in decades. Just having Saturn and Jupiter, the two most powerful planets in the solar system here at the same time is something not seen in six decades. Saturn is here now until 2023 and in that time he will give you the power to move mountains if you have to, but in return will demand that you show up and put in the hard work and effort. Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion is here to promote professional growth, expansion and opportunities. Jupiter will race through your career sector before leaving on 14th May but will retrograde back in for a second, more thorough and deeper dive into things from 29th July to 29th December. During his absence, Jupiter will spend time in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking, which he will move into and out of three times over the course of 2021 and 2022. What will really get this year moving and feel very different to 2020 is Mars’ return to Taurus on 7th January. Held back by a retrograde phase, Mars has been in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart since June 2020, making this the longest wind down of a Mars cycle in 32 years. It will be good to get moving again and until he leaves Taurus on 4th March, the warrior planet of the cosmos will be looking for something to channel his passion, drive, warrior and competitive spirit into. While this is a powerful professional year or a year where you will be drawn to anything that allows you to embrace your personal and professional goals and ambitions, there are measures in place to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play. Venus, who didn’t visit an adventurous part of your chart at all in 2020 will visit twice this year. Venus is here first from 9th January to 2nd February but will come full circle on 6th November but won’t leave until March 2022.
 
   Gemini   May 21 - Jun 21
Each year is a roll of the dice and as you wait to see what kind of year the gods have in store, what we all want is a year that has the right balance. Too much of a good thing is just as challenging as too much of a bad thing and it appears that the gods have it just right this year. Saturn and Jupiter both returned to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery in the final weeks of 2020 and this will be the dominant force in 2021. When looking to the challenges that any year might present we look to Saturn and when looking for the opportunities we look to Jupiter, who are rarely in the same area of your chart at the same time. That changed in 2020 when Jupiter and Saturn met up in your financial sector, making that a financial year full of both challenges and opportunities. This year it is happening again but they have moved to a more adventurous field. This not only makes 2021 full of opportunities for adventure, travel, learning and discovery but for things like publishing, connecting with the world physically or digitally. The internet, publishing and even astrology belong to this area of your chart, as you search to expand your mind and enrich your experiences. This also puts Saturn and Jupiter at a friendly aspect to your Gemini Sun, for Saturn at some point over the course of the next three years and Jupiter over the course of this year. Saturn is here until 2023 but Jupiter will come and go and that is what gives this year more balance and variety. Jupiter will leave and return to your career sector from 14th May to 29th July, returning again on 29th December and then once more in 2022. Jupiter will move into and out of your career sector three times over the course of 2021 and 2022 and with Neptune here from 2012 to 2026, this will bring the planets of luck and dreams together here for the first time in our lifetime. The balance between the adventurous and professional focus makes 2021 an exciting year. This is also a chance to get on top of things financially and no matter the experience of having Jupiter and Saturn together in your financial sector last year Venus, the planet of money will spend an extraordinary amount of time here in 2021. First from 9th January to 2nd February and then again from 6th November to March 2022. This is also a good year for you personally and with the North Node in Gemini for the whole of 2021, for following your own path and truth.
 
   Cancer   Jun 22 - Jul 22
When looking at the main themes of any year, the rule of thumb is that you look to Saturn for where there might be challenges and to Jupiter for the opportunities. To move into 2021 with both Jupiter and Saturn in your financial sector makes this a big year for money matters and while Saturn might create challenges or you might have to take a more responsible approach to money matters, there is also the potential for financial growth and expansion. Yet just by having Saturn and Jupiter here has taken a lot of pressure off you, for it was only in the final weeks of 2020 that they both left Capricorn, your opposing sign, within three days of each other. Saturn had been in Capricorn since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019 and it might only be now that they are gone that you can feel the pressure drop. Saturn is in your financial sector until 2023 and that makes this the start of a three year campaign to take your financial power back, meaning that there is no hurry, urgency or need to reinvent the wheel overnight. As long as you realise that Saturn is watching you and take responsibility for money matters, this is an empowering time. Jupiter on the other hand will rush through and leave on 14th May, before retrograding back for a second and more thorough review visit from 29th July to 29th December. It is where Jupiter goes to that is exciting, for he will not only return to join Neptune in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery but for the first of three visits over the course of 2021 and 2022. This is the first time that the planets of luck and dreams have met up in this adventurous part of your chart in our lifetime. Meanwhile, you will also find that any professional pressure or urgency drops back this year but not at the expense of losing any momentum, especially on the job front. On 7th January Mars will leave your career sector, finally wrapping up a visit that began in June 2020, his longest in 32 years. You might be feeling battle weary by the time you move into the New Year but the scars will eventually heal while the spoils of war will be in safe hands. There is continuous planetary activity in your work and career sectors all year but the kind that can keep the wheels turning without the heavy demands of last year. Meanwhile, Venus will be working to make this a good year for your relationships, especially if there were challenges last year.
 
   Leo   Jul 23 - Aug 22
This is a big year for all your relationships and especially the most important relationship of all, the one with yourself. Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets in the solar system both returned to your relationship sector in the closing weeks of 2020 and while Jupiter will come and go, Saturn is here until 2023. When looking at any year the rule of thumb is to look at Saturn for where there might be challenges and to Jupiter for where there will be opportunities. When you have them in the same place, then challenges become opportunities and by also having to show up and invest more, you are more likely to hold onto what you achieve. That means that there might be relationship challenges this year but also an opportunity to create strong and enduring relationships, with solid and unshakeable foundations. However, to have Saturn and Jupiter in your relationship sector also puts them on the opposite side of the sky to Leo and this means that you have reached the halfway point of your current three decade long Saturn cycle and a 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion at the same time. Each is a major point in your life for self questioning and remembering who you are and your personal truth. That is why one of the most important relationships this year will be the one with yourself. The last time you had Saturn and Jupiter in your relationship sector and you were at the halfway point of these major cycles at the same time was six decades ago, making 2021 a hugely significant year for you. Saturn is here until 2023 but Jupiter will leave on 14th May, before retrograding back in from 29th July to 29th December. I suspect Jupiter might want a bit of space from Saturn, after they have been in the same sign since December 2017, when they teamed up and spent the whole of 2020 in your sector of work and health. Jupiter will return to your financial sector from 14th May to 29th July where he will team up with dreamy Neptune, a very different partner to stoic Saturn. This is the first time that the planets of luck and dreams have teamed up in your financial sector in our lifetime and they will do it three times over the course of 2021 and 2022. Meanwhile, while having Jupiter and Saturn leave your work sector late last year has taken a lot of the pressure off, this year is likely to see a professional surge. Work and job matters have more than enough momentum and support, while Mars’ return to your career sector from 7th January to 4th March will get this professional year off to an empowered start.
 
   Virgo   Aug 23 - Sep 22
That 2021 is an exciting year professionally is one thing but the fact that it is also balanced with just as many exciting developments on the personal front indicates the right balance is possible. It was in the closing days of 2020 that Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets in the solar system returned to your busy and industrious work sector within days of each other. Having either one here would make this a massive year for work and job matters or for whatever it is that keeps you busy but to have both here, for the first time together in six decades takes this to a whole new level. Had it not been for the balance on offer and the fact that Jupiter will take a break during the year, there could be a danger of life becoming too busy. There is still that danger but that is why having the lunar nodes policing a balance between work and play is just one of the safety features built into 2021. Another is Mars’ return to an adventurous part of your chart from 7th January to 4th March, Venus’ return to a playful part from 9th January to 2nd February and the fact that she will not only return on 6th November but won’t then leave until March 2022. However, it is Jupiter himself who will make sure that doesn’t happen and as he is a planet that not only expands things but doesn’t play the same long game Saturn plays, taking a break midyear will stop the year from becoming too busy. Jupiter will race through your work sector from 20th December 2020 to 14th May 2021, taking just five months to travel the same ground he will normally cross in 12 months. This means that you will need to factor in a busy first four and a half months but Venus and Mars will be working during much of that time to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play. While the professional momentum will continue, especially with things becoming active on the career front from early March, Jupiter will make an unexpected early return to your relationship sector on 14th May. Had Jupiter stayed in your work sector for the 12 months he normally does he would return in December. However, Jupiter will not only return in May but will visit your relationship sector three times over the course of 2021 and 2022, first from 14th May to 29th July, returning on 29th December and then leaving and returning again next year. Each time Jupiter will join forces with Neptune, with the planets of luck and dreams coming together for the first time in your relationship sector in our lifetime.
 
   Libra   Sep 23 - Oct 23
The question we all want to know when moving into any year is will this be a ‘good’ year? Once we have that answer, the next thing we want is a few more details but basically, that is the burning question so I will get that out of the way out front. This will not only be a good year for Librans but a very good year and let me count the ways. Firstly, for the first time in six decades Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets in the solar system and the planets that shape any year came together in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart in the closing weeks of 2020. Until then, Saturn had spent the previous three years and Jupiter the previous 12 months more focused on home and family matters but also at a tough aspect. Your home and family sector is ruled by Capricorn and this is what made 2020 such a tough year for many of us. Saturn is the planet that can bring challenges and Jupiter opportunities so when they come together, which they did in December 2019 then challenges were always going to lead to opportunities. You had that last year when it came to the things close to home, something you will continue to benefit from but also this year, though in a very different format. Jupiter and Saturn are now in Aquarius and that is a very different experience for anyone with their Sun in Libra. Capricorn and Libra are at difficult aspects to each other so 2020 was always going to be a challenging year. Aquarius and Libra are fellow Air signs and even Saturn is going to make life easier. That makes 2021 not only a less challenging and easier year but where the focus is on matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. Saturn is here until 2023 but Jupiter will leave from 14th May to 29th July, returning for a second visit that will end on 29th December. In that time Jupiter will join Neptune in your work sector, with the planets of luck and dreams teaming up here for the first time in our lifetime. Jupiter will return three times over the course of 2021 and 2022, spending up to five months here at a time. Because Jupiter will move backwards and forwards between the two over the course of the year, this will make it easier to maintain a balance between work and play. Another noticeable difference this year is a drop in relationship tension or challenges but with it a chance to enjoy the benefits from the past.
 
   Scorpio   Oct 24 - Nov 21
For many Scorpios, this is a year for putting down roots, becoming more grounded and with a lot more focus on home, family and/or property matters. This is thanks to Saturn and Jupiter’s return to your home and family sector in the closing weeks of 2020 and the start of a new journey that has already begun. Saturn spent three and a half months here in 2020, returning in March and then retrograding back out in early July. Jupiter wasn’t there at the time so this was just about Saturn’s mandate, which often focuses on the challenges rather than the opportunities. There is a chance to look back to that time last year, knowing that the foundations have already been laid. This time Jupiter is here and that means that while there might need to take more responsibility there is also plenty of opportunities. Saturn is here until 2023 so is playing a long game and many of the challenges he can bring come months or even years down the track and often after not dealing with things upfront. To have Jupiter here in the early phase brings the confidence and motivation to invest what is required in order to get the rewards. Jupiter is normally here for 12 months but will rush through before leaving on 14th May, only to retrograde back in from 29th July to 29th December. It is where Jupiter is in such a hurry to get here that is this year’s best kept secret. Seven months ahead of schedule, Jupiter will not only return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart from 14th May to 29th July but will team up with Neptune here. This is the first time that the planets of luck and dreams have been here at the same time in our lifetime and they will come together here three times over the course of 2021 and 2022. Another feature of 2021 that will help to balance Saturn’s more solid position is the fact that Venus and Mars, the planets that spent much of 2020 at a standstill are back up and moving. Mars will move through nine areas of your chart in 2021 and that will see his passion, drive, warrior and competitive spirit spread across a wide swath of your life, including a return to Scorpio from 31st October to 13th December. Venus is doing the same, often returning ahead of the other planets and her return to Scorpio will be so far ahead of the other planets that her return from 11th September to 8th October will be over before your birthday month even begins, giving your heart the first say in a lot of things this year.
 
   Sagittarius   Nov 22 - Dec 21
We are all being impacted by the fact that once again Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets in the solar system are a package deal, though in a different way to 2020. However, while for many this is being directed into a fairly narrow aspect of their life, you are the one that will get the most overall benefit from this. Jupiter and Saturn returned to your communication sector in the closing weeks of 2020, the area that can be seen as the ‘Swiss army knife’ of the solar system, with a tool for every situation. Your communication sector is not just about communication but is a smart, intellectually savvy and articulate part of your chart. You now have Saturn here until 2023 and this is giving you mental stamina and discipline as well as power over your words and your thoughts. There isn’t an aspect of your life that won’t benefit from this. Jupiter will spend less time here, rushing through in just five months instead of the 12 months he will normally spend here. However, while he is here Jupiter will expand your mind, your ability to think big and will also make this a lucky time of the year for all aspects of communication. This is especially good if writing or speaking is part of your job and for both your personal and professional relationships. Jupiter is only here until 14th May but will retrograde back in for a second time from 29th July to 29th December, with a chance in his early months to spend time back at the drawing board and even to give the past and unsaid words a voice. It is during Jupiter’s absence from your communication sector that he will join up with Neptune in your home and family sector, bringing the planets of luck and dreams together here for the first time in our lifetime. However, it won’t be for the last time, with Jupiter returning to focus on home, family and/or property matters three times over the course of 2021 and 2022. Meanwhile, what you will also appreciate is that this is likely to be a fast paced year, with none of the stuck or stalled quality that 2020 had to it. This is not just because Jupiter will change things up throughout the year but Mars, who spent the whole second half of 2020 going backwards and forwards over the same ground, is on the move again. The only areas of your chart that Mars won’t visit this year is your home, income and communication sectors, areas that Saturn and/or Jupiter are covering this year or covered last year.
 
   Capricorn   Dec 22 - Jan 19
To begin with, the best thing about 2021 is that it is not 2020 anymore, which may have been a challenging year in more ways than one. However, the more distance you gain from last year the more you will realise how empowering and opportune it actually was, appreciating in hindsight not only the inner power and resilience this has given you but the opportunities this has created. 2020 was the final year of Saturn’s three year visit to Capricorn and the foundation years for a new three decade long Saturn cycle. Saturn not only left Capricorn in the closing weeks of 2020 but Jupiter as well, wrapping up the 12 month foundation of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. If your future was a building you have spent the last three years dealing with consents and then getting down in the muck, digging and pouring the foundations by hand. Now the building can rise upwards, knowing that while it was hard work and challenging, the last few years and 2020 in particular, were spent creating the kind of foundations that will support your future. Once Saturn and Jupiter leave Capricorn, which was the first time in six decades this has happened at the same time, it was to begin the ‘flowering phase’. This is the year when most of the seeds planted in the past will start to bear fruit, when life becomes easier and more abundant. This is likely to be a lucrative year, with Jupiter and Saturn now in your income sector but it is not just about the money, with things coming to bloom across all aspects and in all the currencies of your life. This is the year when you get to reap the rewards for the challenges and hard work of the past, especially personally. This is also going to be a fast and vibrant year, with Jupiter leaving your income sector on 14th May to join Neptune in your communication sector, putting the planets of luck and dreams together here for the first time in our lifetime. Jupiter will back out and return to your income sector on 29th July but will return to your communication sector on 29th December. In all, Jupiter will return to your communication sector, a smart, intellectually savvy and articulate part of your chart three times over the course of 2021 and 2022. In addition, after spending the second half of 2020 going backwards and forwards over the same ground, Mars will visit nine areas of your chart this year. The only parts he won’t visit are Capricorn, your income and communication sector which Jupiter and Saturn have covered.
 
   Aquarius   Jan 20 - Feb 18
To say that 2021 is destined to be a big year is an understatement and astrologically speaking it is the biggest year in decades. Six decades to be exact because that was the last time that you had Saturn and Jupiter, the two most powerful planets in Aquarius at the same time. Even if it was just Saturn or just Jupiter this would be the most important year in a decade but to have both this makes this your biggest year in decades if not a lifetime. It is not just having Saturn and Jupiter, the two most powerful planets in Aquarius at the same time that makes this a powerful year but why they are here. Saturn has returned to begin a new three decade long Saturn cycle and he will spend until 2023 helping you lay down the foundations for the future. Jupiter, on the other hand, has returned to begin a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. To begin either a new Saturn or Jupiter cycle would make this a year for major new beginnings but again, to have both happen at the same time is a chance for a major reset and the start of a major new life chapter. Saturn is playing a long game and over the next three years will help you lay down the foundations for the future while Jupiter is here to create opportunities and as many new pathways as possible. Jupiter is also racing ahead and while he will normally spend 12 months here, he will race through the full length of Aquarius in five months and regardless of when your birthday is, by the time he leaves on 14th May will have aligned with your Sun. At some point in the first four and a half months of 2021, you will experience one of the luckiest transits in a decade, making this the luckiest and most expansive point of the year. Jupiter will leave and join up with Neptune in your income sector from 14th May to 29th July, bringing the planets of luck and dreams together here for the first time in our lifetime. Jupiter will return again on 29th December and in all, over the course of 2021 and 2022 will return to your income sector three times. Jupiter will return to Aquarius from 29th July to 29th December, with a chance to finish what he began in the first part of the year. After having Saturn in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019, as they wrapped up your old Saturn and Jupiter cycles, when they left and returned to Aquarius in the closing weeks of 2020 this changed everything. In addition, this is going to be a fast and vibrant year across every aspect of your life.
 
   Pisces   Feb 19 - Mar 20
This is a year of contrasts and that means lots of variety and also some surprises. It was in the closing weeks of 2020 that Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful and therefore defining planets in the solar system left your friendship sector and returned to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. This is always a contrast and shifts a lot of your focus inwards, as you began the three year wind down of your current Saturn cycle and what should be the 12 month wind down of your current Jupiter cycle. This would suggest that 2021 is a quiet year, full of time to reflect, looking back and finding the space and solitude to hear yourself think. While that will be required there is no way that life is going to let you retreat too far into yourself. Saturn won’t return to Pisces until 2023 so the wind down of your current Saturn cycle, which began in 1994, is a long game and something that will happen in the background. Jupiter on the other hand, who usually has 12 months to wind down a 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion will want a deeper dive but even he won’t put a quiet spell over the whole year. That is because Jupiter will only stay here for five months and instead of returning to Pisces to begin a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion in December, will return on 14th May. This is more a sneak peek, because Jupiter will retrograde back out again on 29th July but will then return again on 29th December. It is when Jupiter returns to Pisces in May that he will find Neptune, your ruling planet here, with the planets of luck and dreams coming together for the first time in your sign in our lifetime. This is not just a chance to get a sneak peek of the future from 14th May to 29th July but a sense of how exciting that future could be. Another factor that will stop life stagnating this year is the fact that Venus and Mars, who both spent months in retrograde motion last year are racing through the heavens this year. Mars, who spent the second half of last year going backwards and forwards over the same ground will spend time in nine areas of your chart this year. The only areas he won’t visit are your friendship sector, a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and Pisces, the areas that Jupiter and Saturn have either just been or will focus on this year, with Venus taking care of the rest. This makes this a busy and vibrant year, which nicely balances the time to hear yourself think that the wind down of a Saturn and Jupiter cycle requires.
