The year 2020 has definitely been a roller coaster ride, but 2021 is the year when we gear ourselves up and look at the brighter side and revamp our social, financial, and political institutions to see a society where everyone in it can thrive.
Since Saturn is associated with fear, in addition to rules and authority, and fixed signs like Taurus and Aquarius can be slow to change, we could also see some staunch resistance to progress, particularly from those who see it as a threat. However, as the new year kicks off with a cluster of planets in community-oriented Aquarius in early February (including ethical Jupiter, team-building Venus, and supportive Saturn), one thing is for sure: We'll need to exhibit the best of humanity and band together to overcome obstacles and create true change.
The silver lining
Optimistic Jupiter will be working to help us keep the faith and remain inspired when it briefly moves into compassionate and uplifting Pisces from May 13-July 28. Jupiter in Pisces can be quite the galvanizing force when it comes to encouraging people toward selflessness and doing the right thing. Still, we'll need to watch out for guru-like swindlers and false prophets, as well as indiscriminately believing everything we see or hear and avoiding things that we shouldn't.
Jupiter's transits during 2021 will also be influencing the eclipses we'll be having on May 26 and December 4 in freedom-loving and philosophical Sagittarius, because this is Jupiter's sign of rulership. These eclipses will fall on the fated South Node (currently in Sagittarius), which will challenge and push us to move away from overconsumption, fanaticism, and self-righteousness.
Feel the fear and do it anyway
As 2021 comes to a close, Jupiter officially moves into Pisces on December 28, while love planet Venus goes retrograde in committed Capricorn on December 19. We will need to reassess our values and shared responsibilities, in addition to re-evaluating our worthiness in relation to productivity and material wealth. Above all else, 2021 will drive us to push through the things we've been fearful or avoidant of changing so we can improve our quality of life.
In 2021, you'll be pushed to take a hard look at your current friendships and affiliations to ensure that the people around you are in alignment with the person you're striving to become and the things you care most about. You could find yourself breaking ties with superficial connections and people with whom you no longer share things in common, in exchange for folks with whom you can really be yourself.
You can expect the desire to break free of a stagnant career path or the pressure of external validation to be heightened. As a creature of habit and security, you could feel fearful of making such sweeping changes, but this planetary pile-up is pushing you to step far outside your comfort zone to achieve a life that feels authentically your own. This could mean going in a brand-new direction with your goals and ambitions, perhaps breaking into entrepreneurship or making corporate responsibility and community impact higher priorities than a cushy paycheck.
You'll be challenged to change or let go of certain beliefs you've held about the world and your experiences in it. This could have you switching religious faiths or political parties or abandoning a degree track to pursue a new field of study. Either way, you're being pushed to liberate yourself from the social mores or personal narratives that you've been indiscriminately subscribing to up until now, especially if they've been keeping you from living your truth or your life to the fullest.
You thrive when you feel secure, Cancer, whether it's through the connection to your friends and community or by sticking to what's safe. As a result, you may find out that it is better to fly solo or step outside your comfort zone in order to live your true potential. Another possibility is that you will decide to take an intimate connection deeper while learning how to address and heal co-dependent habits and patterns.
2021 is a make-it-or-break-it kind of a year for you, Leo, specifically where your partnerships and career are concerned. This could be the year where you'll be handing out many pink slips to folks or be on the receiving end of one. You can expect to meet lots of new people that will want to guide, help, or support you in some big ways. For Leos looking for commitment, your quest will be to hold out for the person that wants to be in your life long-term but who will also support you as you build a career and reputation that's unique to you and your expertise.
You're a creature of discipline and hard work, but sometimes you can become hyper-focused on doing things in a super-specific way or get stuck taking on more than you should. You'll be pushed to dump a job or projects on your plate that give very little back to you in comparison to how much effort you put in. This will challenge you to let go of your need for total control or certainty in planning for the future. The year will bring you an abundance of opportunities, tasks, and responsibilities. It'll be important that you say "yes" only to the things that are truly rewarding and meaningful for you.
Authenticity and self-validation are some of the major themes for you in 2021. As a Libra, you often know just what to say and do to keep the peace and avoid ruffling too many feathers. However, with Saturn and Uranus squaring off with each other on February 17, June 14, and December 24, you can expect to undergo some major self-defining experiences this year, either through your creative pursuits or by being pushed to break free of unhealthy emotional ties.
You will be looking for a mix of stability and freedom in 2021, and it will be possible to have both. What it mainly comes down to is how comfortable you feel within yourself and how free you feel to be yourself. You'll be pushed to address unhealthy family and relationship dynamics. As a result, you will be working on overcoming fears around abandonment and loss and learning how to be more emotionally self-sufficient.
You're about to undergo a total makeover in 2021, Sagittarius, especially where it pertains to your mind and body. You'll be pushed to change old habits for the better and be more intentional about what you give your focus and time to. As a freedom-loving Sagittarius, you know no bounds when it comes to taking advantage of all the bounty that life has to offer. This would be the perfect time to work on expanding a specific skill set, going back to school or taking on a formal course of study, or working on a big project like a book.
Liberation. It's a big theme for you in 2021, Capricorn. You'll be pushed to find real personal fulfillment, rather than measuring your worth by your productivity or the accolades you receive. This could mean restructuring your finances in some way, like taking a temporary pay cut in search of a more fulfilling job, or taking a hard look at where you've been undervaluing yourself.
It's time for you to get down to business, Aquarius. You can expect to be doing lots of work on yourself in 2021. Some of this work could include taking more responsibility for your physical well-being and doing what you can to improve it. It may also involve taking a hard look at where you've been selling yourself short or blending too deep into the crowd, so that you can boss up and take your rightful place in the spotlight.
You're an intuitive and soulful person by nature, Pisces, but 2021 will ask that you dive a bit deeper when it comes to sorting out what it is that defines you at your core. In many ways, the planetary combos will be pushing you to focus on the here and now, which includes accepting yourself or life as is rather than focusing too hard on (or getting discouraged by) an unattainable dream.
So, don't let the past year affect your choices and your will to change the world still! Look up to the upcoming year with absolute cheer, love and hope along with good health.
