2021 for Aries

 

ARIES RULING PLANET MARS

Your Ruling Planet Mars is associated with energy and action. It provides you with motivation and drive. As there is no retrograde motion for Mars in 2021, you should be able to work consistently towards the achievement of your goals.

6 January Mars moves into Taurus Things may feel slower, which might not suit your normally dynamic way of doing things, but at least you get some valuable catch-up time. Spend it on reinforcing the structures that underpin your goals, and improving the strength and quality of your game.

04 March Mars moves into Gemini Use this inquisitive energy to educate yourself, especially in areas that can improve your fluency and communication skills. You’ll learn new ways of putting your ideas into action, energising your marketing style and motivating prospective customers to follow your lead.

23 April Mars moves into Cancer Make sure that you engage with your goals on a personal level. You need to feel excited and enthusiastic about what you are doing, otherwise your energy levels will drop. Tune into your imagination for clear cut guidance on what decisions to take. Hopefully, you will find time to get involved in activities that provide you with creative outlets.

11 June Mars moves into Leo Don’t be afraid to draw attention to yourself, as this is a good time to stand in the spotlight and shine. Your leadership potential is particularly strong right now. Others may look to you for motivation and coaching in areas where they lack courage and conviction.

29 July Mars moves into Virgo While this placement of your ruling planet is helpful if you have work that requires accuracy and precision, it might make you more anxious and fussy about things that normally, you wouldn’t worry about. The best way to utilise this slightly obsessive energy is to channel it into making your daily routine more efficient and your health & wellbeing regimes more effective. But please try not to get too caught up in getting everything Just Right!

15 September Mars moves into Libra You can’t expect to have your own way all the time with this placement. At least, not unless you are prepared to negotiate and persuade rather than push people into doing things for you. This is not the best energy for making yes or no choices, but it is great for brokering and achieving win/win deals.

30 October Mars moves into Scorpio Your planet is passing through the sign it used to be associated with until Pluto came on the scene. Most zodiac signs quiver at the thought of real power, in case it overwhelms them. But you are eager to be empowered so long as you can maintain your integrity and sense of control. Your gut instincts will be stronger now, so let your actions be guided by them. Try not to do anything that doesn’t feel absolutely right to you.

13 December Mars moves into Sagittarius You may be feeling extra adventurous – keen to push past your current boundaries and expand your horizons. Watch your levels of impatience and impetuousness and do not take risks without assessing the potential for accident and injury. Channel this fiery enthusiasm into activities that can increase your knowledge of yourself, and of the world you live in.

PLANETS IN ARIES

The impact that the Wounded Healer Asteroid Chiron has on your zodiac sign is to test your resolve to free yourself from the clinging influence of self-pity. As an Aries, you are not keen on waiting for others to do things for you. You would much rather act independently, and this includes taking the initiative in your own self-healing process. You prefer to make moves that can help to ease your suffering than to sit in a pool of pain and misery. You are driven by achievement and so long as you are reaching targets – however small – your courage and energy will remain focussed on your desired outcome. Which is to heal yourself. Your sign has a special role to play in coaching and motivating others to take an active role in finding cures for their ills and solutions to their problems.

The recently discovered dwarf planet Eris orbits around the far-flung edges of our known solar system. She takes around 558 years to complete her elliptical journey around the Sun. She seems to feel most at home in Aries as she spends more time in your sign (123 years) than in anyone else’s! Eris has a feisty energy, and a reputation for causing conflict. Invite her to boost your levels of courage, competitiveness and self-assertiveness, but do not allow her to draw you into arguments, or aggressive confrontations.

20 March the Sun moves into Aries There is always a sense of fresh starts when the Sun moves into your zodiac sign. We have arrived at the first Equinox of the year, and now is the time to set your goals for the coming season. It is usually best for Aries to look for the next signpost, rather than setting their sights too far ahead. Your ultimate goal medal for achievement awaits you while you move through the necessary steps and stages towards it.

21 March Venus moves into Aries This is a good time to celebrate your independence, your ability to take the initiative and your willingness to do things on your own and in your own way. You still love to have company and to share your time and energy, but only if your self-sufficiency is recognised and respected.

04 April Mercury moves into Aries Keep your communication style sharp and direct. Stick to the point, try not to ramble or digress when you are describing or explaining a situation. But as this placement could make you a bit too quick to jump to conclusions, be careful to think before you speak. And be sure to protect your face and hands when you are handling hot pans or sharp objects.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR ARIES

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius, helping your Aries energy to focus on your goals for the future. What kind of world would you like to be living in and how do you see yourself in it? Opportunities could be coming your way within group or team situations. There could be invitations to take on the responsibilities of roles that put you in the key position of motivator, or coach. You may be gaining extra support and respect from your peers, friends and kindred spirits, which will encourage and reassure you. They could be looking to you for leadership, because you have impressed them by your independent energy, bravery and initiative.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR ARIES

Pluto in Capricorn is still putting pressure on the last decan of Aries (those of you born in the final 10 days of the sign). It might feel a bit like a boot camp where your ability to confront challenge and overcome obstacles is being tested. You are forced to cope with situations which, however scary, are transforming you into a stronger, braver version of who you used to be.

Uranus in Taurus and Neptune in Pisces

Aries is sitting in a row with some strange neighbours. Uranus, planet of change and innovation, is on one side of you, jumping up and down on the edge of a chair that looks as though it is about to break. The constant disruption is distracting you from concentrating on achieving your goals. No sooner do you seem to be making headway when Uranus creates another commotion, interrupting your focus.

On the other side of you is the mysterious, ghostly presence of Neptune which keeps drifting in and out of your field of consciousness. Sometimes it seems that it has disappeared altogether, yet the ethereal energy haunts you like an elusive perfume or melody. Neptune’s influence has a destabilising effect on you, filling you with vague doubts and draining your determination to finish what you started.

The best way to cope with this weird pair is to accept them as a way to test and sharpen your life skills. Uranus can train you to concentrate on your goals, no matter what craziness is going on around you. Neptune can help you build resistance against nebulous fears that sap your confidence, independence and motivation.

13 May-28 July Jupiter is travelling in Pisces While your levels of psychic awareness could be getting a welcome boost, you may find some of its influences far too intrusive for your liking. You’re not keen on the kinds of unwanted dreams or visions that confuse you and undermine your confidence. You would rather the Beings from other dimensions checked with you first before inviting themselves into your life, no matter how important the information they wish to share with you.

ARIES LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are supportive of your sign. They are suggesting it is a good time to tap into the more positive inherited energies within your ancestral gene pool. These would be self-belief, optimism, positivity and a sense of adventure – qualities which can ease and enhance your journey along your life path. They encourage you to develop mobility and communication skills that can be used to teach, coach and motivate. They also add to your sales and marketing abilities. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN ARIES & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN LIBRA

28 March Full Moon in Libra This is a good time to evaluate decisions you made earlier. You might need to compromise on certain aspects of your choices in order to achieve more favourable outcomes. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice from others before you seal the deal.

12 April New Moon in Aries It’s time to set your intentions on winning your goals. You’re sowing the seeds for success, but you must be prepared to wait for results. Take one step at a time and don’t get impatient if you hit delays.

6 October New Moon in Libra This is the right time to initiate a new basis for partnership projects. You’re looking to collaborate on 50/50 equal shares terms, with both sides balancing the amount they give and take.

20 October Full Moon in Aries The goals you set earlier in the year (perhaps at the New Moon in Aries) could be coming to fruition. Something you have been intent on winning may be achieved, if not fully then at least to the point where you can be sure of having reached the first stage of completion.

 

2021 for Taurus

 

TAURUS RULING PLANET VENUS

Your Ruling Planet Venus is associated with the gifts and abilities you were born with. They are the natural resources that can help to make your life more fulfilling. Venus has one Retrograde phase this year, offering you the chance to re-evaluate the recognition your talents are earning and receiving.

08 January Venus moves into Capricorn This is a good time to apply your talents & abilities to achieving your ambitions. Put yourself in planning mode and formulate some strategies on which to build your future success.

01 February Venus moves into Aquarius Looking at innovative ways to apply your talents & abilities could give you access to new admirers, possibly in group and team settings. Friends might turn out to be your top ambassadors.

25 February Venus moves into Pisces You may be feeling ultra romantic or sentimental but please try not to be unrealistic in your expectations of other people. They are just the same as always so don’t view them through rose-coloured lenses! Accept them as they are with all their human faults.

21 March Venus moves into Aries Your ruler is urging you to climb into the driving seat of your life. Don’t be afraid to do things on your own, or to take the initiative in your dealings with other people. Try not to fall into the trap of comparing your talents with anyone else’s. Just focus on what you do best.

14 April Venus moves into Taurus Take time to celebrate, recognise and appreciate the talents and abilities you were born with. They can be used to enrich your life and make it more enjoyable and fulfilling. They can be depended upon to help you earn a living, and to provide for your material comfort and security.

09 May Venus moves into Gemini Your popularity with local contacts and acquaintances is good right now so this is a favourable time for networking in your neighbourhood. It is especially helpful if you have something to sell as your clients, contacts and pals are willing to be your PR agents.

02 June Venus moves into Cancer You may feel like shying away from social activities for a while, to focus on the comforts of home and family. A period of privacy will allow you to get creative with your natural talents & abilities. It could also be helpful if you are trying to bring harmony to personal relationships.

27 June Venus moves into Leo Lavish attention on your relationship with your Self and engage with the Inner Child who still craves your unconditional approval. This is a partnership that must be prioritised. Because if you can’t love, respect and admire You, how will you be able to allow anyone else to?

22 July Venus moves into Virgo This is the perfect time to relish the skills that enable you to get your work done so efficiently and effectively. Enjoy the pleasure of using them. Don’t skip the creative satisfaction to be had from carrying out daily tasks like preparing meals, organising your living space or planning your day.

16 August Venus moves into Libra As this placement of your ruling planet enhances your personal charm and persuasiveness it can be very helpful if you’re hoping to negotiate a fair deal, especially if you are trying to get others to agree with your side of the situation!

10 September Venus moves into Scorpio This potent placement can be called on to help you invest your talents and abilities in ways that could enrich and empower you. It can also make you more mysterious and fascinating to others but watch out … as you could be more susceptible to falling under the spell of a fascinating stranger!

07 October Venus moves into Sagittarius Fall in love with positivity, optimism, new prospects, everything that makes your life more adventurous. It’s ok to give way to the free spirit within you and follow the call to push back the boundaries of your life, to explore and discover new experiences.

05 November Venus moves into Capricorn Consolidate on the preparations you may have made earlier in the year to apply your talents & abilities in ways that are designed to help you achieve your ambitions in life.

TAURUS RULER VENUS MOVING RETROGRADE

19 December Venus moves Retrograde in Capricorn You may need to re-evaluate your plans and strategies for success, especially if they are not working to your best advantage. It could be that they are under-achieving or falling short of expectations because they are not drawing attention to your finest features. Maybe they are failing to promote your abilities and employ your talents to their highest potential. This needs to be rectified to ensure you gain the credit you deserve.

PLANETS IN TAURUS

Uranus in Taurus unpredictable Uranus creates random events which rampage through your comfort zones in a series of unsettling upheavals. No sooner have you got used to one set of adjustments then the goalposts are moved yet again, leaving you in a state of exhausted perplexity. Thank goodness that your fundamental nature is calm and strong, which enables you to take this time of constant shifts in your stride. Your main problem is your tendency to resist change, because it makes you feel so disoriented. You don’t see the point of doing things differently unless there is a very good reason. Even so, you would be better to embrace the idea that some sort of evolution has to happen in order to avoid stagnation and decay.

14 January Uranus moves direct in Taurus Perhaps it isn’t change itself that you dread, but rather the chaos it can cause. Once you figure out how to deal with it constructively and turn it into a positive advantage, you will feel much more relaxed. You just need time to acclimatise to the new situation or set of circumstances. You do not trust things that are forced through, without due diligence and preparation. In your experience, it is this unnecessary hurry that causes chaos and unrest which then has to be calmed down. You could well be proved right when Uranus moves Retrograde in Taurus on 20 August.

You are being offered some good, solid support through the first part of the year with the following planetary influences moving into your sign.

6 January Mars moves into Taurus, which is great for helping you to focus your energy on re-building any damaged structures and laying foundations for a more natural and fulfilling lifestyle moving forward.

19 April Sun & Mercury move into Taurus When you accept that you are quite capable of providing the basic materials that can make your life as comfortable and secure as you need it to be, the stress levels start to drop. If you stop and think about it – it is the simple things of life that are usually the most satisfying and enjoyable and which bring the strongest sense of contentment.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR TAURUS

Longer term support flows to you from Pluto in Capricorn, which is helping you to cope with these challenging times of transition, by empowering your natural levels of patience and endurance. However frustrated you become with a process that seems to be teetering on the brink of self-sabotage and destruction, you can sense the potential for re-birth and re-generation in the longer term. This is particularly so for those of you born in the last 10 days of your sign.

Neptune in Pisces is helping Taureans (particularly those of you born in the 2nd ten days of your sign) to embrace their artistic abilities. You could be seeing things in your dreams that inspire you to pick up a paintbrush or enrol in your local choir! Most of you are blessed with tangible talents as you have a natural love of beauty and an appreciation for harmony of sound, colour and form. You can take something very simple and add value to it, while staying true to its original qualities.

The ethereal effects of Neptune are enhanced and expanded by Jupiter moving into Pisces on 13 May for a couple of months and returning for a longer stay at the end of 2021. You may find that your intuition is much stronger, and the sense of being guided by information from your imagination becomes more tangible and true. Normally, Taureans are not keen on airy-fairy insubstantial stuff and rightly so. They prefer to draw a firm line between make-believe and 3D reality. But it is via your natural senses that you can combine visualised and actualised beauty. And yours is the zodiac sign which could be coming up with simple, practical solutions to situations that are currently causing wide-spread panic and stress.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR TAURUS

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius which, initially at least, is not going to be very comfortable for you. The status quo is shifting which means out with the old and in with the new. It means letting go of stuff that has passed its sell-by date and making space for something that is still very much an unknown quantity. Taureans prefer to stick with the tried and tested and they would rather hold on to what they value and what has already proved its worth. But these times are world-changing, and you will not be able to stop their progress. Use their revolutionary energy to make major alterations in your own life by releasing your attachment to anything or anyone you no longer need or wish to have around you. Simplify your space, free up your energy so you can spend it on what really matters to you.

Chiron & Eris in Aries these are long-term, background influences which are most likely to cause problems and create conflicts that affect you indirectly. Even so, they are sources of stress in your life. While it is better to accept that there is nothing you can do to solve or stop them, you can ensure that your own security, health and happiness are protected as far as possible.

TAURUS LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are another background influence in your life which may not impinge upon you at a personal level. But you can still tap into their potential to ease your progress along your Life Path journey. Their message for the moment is to keep moving forward one stage at a time rather than trying to go too far, too soon, before you are ready. You need to master your times tables before you can expect to take a degree in quantum mechanics! Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN TAURUS & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN SCORPIO

27 April Full Moon in Scorpio You could have a sense that you have reached the end of a significant phase in your life, and that a mission has been accomplished or completed. Perhaps things have been very challenging or complicated and you have earned a well-deserved rest. It is now time to relax and replenish your energy.

11 May New Moon in Taurus Set your intentions on starting something which is designed to deliver high-quality results. This is a good time to sow seeds for projects that may grow rather slowly but which ultimately will be well made and built to last.

04 November New Moon in Scorpio Set your intentions on starting something which will help to transform situations that are seriously in need of regeneration. They may appear lifeless, but – like a neglected garden – under the surface of the soil lie the seeds of renewal and rebirth.

19 November Full Moon in Taurus (Partial Lunar Eclipse) Something you have been building for a while may be nearing completion, but the final stages could take longer than expected. Don’t withdraw your commitment, as it should become clear why you had to wait for results which might be even better than you had originally anticipated.

 

2021 for Gemini

 

GEMINI RULING PLANET MERCURY

Your Ruling Planet Mercury is associated with connecting and communicating. It travels quite rapidly through the zodiac, in spite of several apparent stops and reversals known as Mercury Retrogrades.

08 January Mercury moves into Aquarius This placement is great for learning something completely new, changing your view of things and coming up with outside-the-box ideas. It is helpful if you’re hoping to connect with kindred spirits (possibly from very different backgrounds to your own) in your neighbourhood, and it should support your attempts to network within group or team settings. Watch out for sudden changes of direction. Pay attention when you’re out and about in case of unexpected or accidental events.

15 March Mercury moves into Pisces Most of your more enlightened ideas are likely to originate from your imagination and be inspired by dreams & visions. As they will probably be far more interesting and entertaining than ordinary life, you could get lost in them. Gazing out of the window when you are supposed to be concentrating on the task in hand could get you into trouble, in more ways than one! You may be feeling more sleepy than usual, so make sure you allow plenty of switch-off time.

04 April Mercury moves into Aries You’re back to your normal fast-paced way of doing things. This placement of your ruling planet will help to keep your communication style sharp and direct. You’ll find it easier to stick to the point but be careful to think before you speak, otherwise you might blurt out things that would be better kept to yourself.

19 April Mercury moves into Taurus This placement is particularly good for taking a more laid-back approach. If you stop and think about it – it is the simple things of life that are usually the most satisfying and enjoyable. At this stage, you are looking for quality and lasting value rather than quantities of short-term stop-gaps.

04 May Mercury moves into Gemini Now is the time for collecting fact, figures, news & information that might come in handy when you have to string a convincing story together. Light-hearted, fun contacts are the order of the day when your natural fluency in gossip and small talk make your company even more amusing than usual!

11 July Mercury moves into Cancer You might be feeling you have had more than enough socialising and are now in need of some privacy. Time spent in your own space will help you to come up with creative ideas that are fed by your personal memories, thoughts & impressions.

28 July Mercury moves into Leo Don’t be shy about showcasing your ideas by exhibiting them in front of an audience. Put some energy into your presentation by giving it the kind of entertainment value that will keep your spectators’ attention fixed on you.

11 August Mercury moves into Virgo This placement of your ruling planet in the other sign that it is connected with should be good for working with detailed information, facts and figures. It could be the right time to test your ideas to see which skills, methods and techniques you will need to use in order to get the most efficient and effective outcomes. But try not to get too stressed about making mistakes and avoid the temptation to get bogged down in minor details.

30 August Mercury moves into Libra You may find that your mind is less quick to come to conclusions. But this is not the time to force yourself into making definite decisions. At least not until you have weighed up the pros & cons of which choice to go with. Don’t be afraid to ask for feedback, or to seek a second opinion. Talking to someone else about your concerns will help, even if you don’t agree with the advice you are given.

05 November Mercury moves into Scorpio It could be that your mind is being drawn, like a magnet, to deeper matters. You may not be satisfied with superficial explanations – you’ll want to find out what is going on under the surface. You are quite right not to take things at face value. Don’t be afraid to demand proof if you are in the slightest bit suspicious that you are being mislead.

24 November Mercury moves into Sagittarius This is the perfect time to broaden your mind and raise your levels of knowledge and awareness. Study a subject that introduces you to new concepts, languages and cultures. Take your brain on a voyage of discovery into the Unknown! It is also a good time to form networks in communities with a global identity, which encourage communication and the sharing of information.

13 December Mercury moves into Capricorn Put your mind into planning mode. Use it to create strategies for long-term success. Draw on experience you have gained over time, and look to respected role models for their specialised guidance and instruction. This could be a good time to write your CV. Make sure that everything you put into it is relevant and of interest to authority figures who might be interviewing you in future.

GEMINI’S RULER MERCURY MOVING RETROGRADE

30 January Mercury moves Retrograde in Aquarius Don’t get too fixated on any specific idea or viewpoint as you may have to change your mind about it completely, due to the sudden arrival of new information, unforeseen developments or shifting perspectives.

21 February Mercury moves Direct in Aquarius Continue your contact with people who are teaching you to think outside the box. It’s possible that your more unusual or innovative ideas which until now seemed to be ignored – probably because they were slightly ahead of their time – are coming into their own and beginning to resonate with a more receptive group of kindred spirits.

29 May Mercury moves Retrograde in Gemini Don’t worry if you have to go back over stuff you assumed you had finished with. This is a chance to review subjects you thought you understood. Your ideas may need to be edited and revised in case of mistakes or missing details.

22 June Mercury moves Direct in Gemini If you’ve been experiencing glitches & hitches in communication or logistics these matters should now begin to sort themselves out. Don’t be irritated by the delays they have caused. Just re-jig your diary and move on. When you look back on this time, you’ll probably realise you were being held back for a good reason.

27 September Mercury moves Retrograde in Libra This is a point of re-balancing or equalising things that were initiated earlier but which have become too one-dimensional. However, it is not the right time to sign important agreements unless you are absolutely sure you are not putting your name to something you may regret in future. Choices and decisions should be checked and re-checked until your mind is completely clear and convinced that this is the best option for you.

18 October Mercury moves Direct in Libra Negotiations, discussions, contracts and covenants may now be nearing the stage of settlement. If there have been any misunderstandings in your dealings with other people, they could have been caused by communication issues. Perhaps things were said or written which went astray, got lost in translation or were taken the wrong way. Now is your chance to make things right again. You might need all your natural tact and diplomacy but there is no reason why you can’t reach an amicable agreement and restore peace and harmony.

PLANETS IN YOUR GEMINI

04 March Mars moves into Gemini This placement should give you an energy boost, which could help with putting your ideas into action, spicing up your marketing style and motivating prospective customers to follow your lead. But it could also make you rather impatient, impetuous and hyper-active so beware of pushing yourself to do too much, too soon.

09 May Venus moves into Gemini Lovely for networking in your neighbourhood, this placement can be especially helpful if you have something to sell as it can enhance your popularity amongst your clients, contacts and pals. It’s a very good time for socialising on a fun, light-hearted level – meeting and greeting a variety of people without getting over-involved with any one in particular.

20 May the Sun moves into Gemini If you’re offered a leading role within your local community then take it! It could get you linked in with the kind of contacts who will promote you, your ideas and services. You may learn a lot from it – it could help to enhance your communication skills and shine a light on your presentation or performance abilities.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR GEMINI

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius You’ve got some serious supporters in the two giant planets within our solar system. They are encouraging you to look to the future, suggesting that the best way to prepare for a changing world is to educate yourself. Teach yourself, train yourself, learn as much as you can. Develop your brain and expand your communication skills until you become expert in your chosen field. Set your sights high – your intelligence is important and Humanity desperately needs innovative thinkers like you during these testing transitional times. You may not find the information you seek in conventional organisations. It is more likely to come to you from unorthodox or unexpected sources. So, keep your eyes and ears open as you set off on this roller-coaster learning curve. Have an amazing adventure! 

Chiron & Eris in Aries These two very different energies have been and will be influencing you over a long period. You may not be consciously aware of them as a positive force in your life but their presence is helping you. Chiron is facilitating a healing process through which you learn not only how to heal your own painful wounds but also how to teach others to heal themselves. Eris is providing you with a feisty fighting spirit which helps you to stay strong and assertive and does not allow you to give in to defeat. As a Gemini, you have a natural gift for communication. Chiron & Eris are helping you to use this ability constructively. Perhaps you are not aware to what extent your words can heal the wounded, or motivate the depressed. The more you become conscious of this talent, the more you will be able to share it with those who need it.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR GEMINI

Generally speaking, Gemini is a curious, intelligent but light-hearted sign that is not so keen on the heavier, more discouraging aspects of life. I’m not saying that you avoid challenge but you would rather not get too bogged down in depressing difficulties.

Jupiter moving into Pisces Although Jupiter spends most of 2021 in Aquarius (which is beneficial to Geminis), it does dip in and out of Pisces for the period 13 May-28 July. This is not such a positive influence for you, as it can create a sense of being overwhelmed by vague impressions that are difficult to translate into words. The best way to use the energy is to improve your descriptive style, by painting pictures with language that inspires the imagination. Be aware that people are likely to be more gullible and sentimental than ever while Jupiter is in Pisces, so make sure that what you are saying does not willingly mislead or deceive anyone.

Neptune continues to plague you from Pisces, creating an ethereal influence that ebbs and flows into your life. It can be very confusing – especially when you are trying to understand what is real and what is not. While it is wonderful to believe in beautiful dreams and visions, it is still very important to stay firmly in touch with the truth. Just because something seems or sounds plausible, doesn’t mean that it can be trusted. There are many things in the world that are made with smoke and mirrors. They are insubstantial and cannot be relied on to deliver what they promise.

Uranus in Taurus is currently creating chaos with its unpredictable energy which brings unforeseen, unprecedented events of an unsettling and upsetting nature. While Gemini is usually up for a bit of mischief, the upheaval that Uranus is causing is beyond a joke. It is curtailing the freedom of movement and the ability to pop in and out of a variety of places that is so important to you. Rather than rebelling against it, use it as an incentive to think up simple yet inventive ideas on how to work around the road blocks that Uranus keeps putting in your path.

Pluto in Capricorn this heaviest of the heavy energy has been casting a shadow over your life for years and will not be releasing the pressure for some time yet. The best way to cope with its oppressive presence is by observing its effect on Society as a whole. Pluto is the great transformer and its destiny is to destroy structures that have passed their sell-by date to clear the way for re-birth and regeneration. Most Geminis have journalistic ability – they are the teachers, translators and interpreters of the zodiac. Perhaps you were born to witness and record these seemingly strange, apocalyptic times!

GEMINI LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius The North Node moving through Gemini has a very direct and personal effect on you. It is a bit like receiving a call to Destiny – when you receive flashes of insight as to why you decided to be born on Planet Earth. The main reason is to offer your communication skills, along with your ability to teach and translate information that can be difficult for some people (often less intelligent than you) to understand. You are facilitating this time of transition, when humans will have to learn new ways of seeing their world. Education should be an ever-evolving art rather than an institution for indoctrination, which unfortunately is what it has become. You are here to turn the situation around and teach people to think for themselves once more. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN GEMINI & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN SAGITTARIUS

26 May Full Moon in Sagittarius (Total Lunar Eclipse) There could be the sense of an adventure that has come to an end. There should be no regrets, just the awareness that you have expanded your mind, grown in knowledge and experience and added to the abundant supply of impressions already imprinted on your memory.

10 June New Moon in Gemini (Annular Solar Eclipse) Set your intentions to sow seeds for projects that could involve education, teaching or communicating with young people. An imaginative approach will work better than simply going by the book, so let your ideas be guided by memories, moods and emotional impressions.

04 December New Moon in Sagittarius (Total Solar Eclipse) There is important knowledge yet to be gained which will be revealed to you in due course. You will discover it when the time is right and you will know it when you see it.

19 December Full Moon in Gemini An educational programme, a sales or marketing idea, a communication or logistics project could be coming to fruition. It has passed through the elementary stage and is now ready to be taken to the next phase of development. This would be a good point to address any teething problems which may prevent you from moving your creation to a more advanced level.

 

2021 for Cancer

 

CANCER & YOUR RULER, THE MOON

New and Full Moons for all the Zodiac Signs will be relevant to you in some way. You are especially sensitive to their energies because of the strong influence your ruler, the Moon, holds over your Sign. Even so, lunations in your own sign and that of your opposite sign Capricorn are likely to have the most intense effect on you.

It is very interesting to see that there is no Full Moon in Cancer in 2021. This suggests that, while the seeds of new life and new creations are being planted all over the world they will not be born, or come to fruition until next year at the earliest. They will need to be cared for, protected and nurtured during this protracted growth phase, and they may require special support as they acclimatise to current earthly conditions.

13 January New Moon in Capricorn This is the optimum time to set intentions and sow seeds for new growth in your vocation, career or profession. You are at the initial stage of creating plans and strategies that will provide the structure, goals and timelines which will help to build your progress. This is probably the most satisfying phase for you, as it could feel like selecting a recipe or design for a potential new birth.

24 June Full Moon in Capricorn Hopefully by now, you will be rewarded with a sense of achievement and a feeling that your efforts so far have been worth while. But this is not the time to turn your back and walk away. You are still responsible for the continuing survival of your creation, which will require your personal input for some time to come.

10 July New Moon in Cancer Your sign – the most creative in the zodiac – is constantly formulating intentions and sowing seeds for the birth of new projects and life forms. We could call it a primeval urge with you, as most Cancerians are driven by the instinct to take raw materials and make something from them.

PLANETS IN CANCER

23 April Mars moves into Cancer As you could be feeling more motivated, this is a good time to focus your energy on your personal goals and channel your enthusiasm into activities that provide you with creative outlets. A stronger sense of independence might make you ready to take the initiative more than you usually do and you could be less worried about operating on your own or being by yourself.

02 June Venus moves into Cancer As you may be feeling rather shy and more self-protective than usual, this could be a good time for settling down in your own space and engaging with your creative talents, as they could give you the sense of satisfaction and fulfilment that you may not be getting from your relationships with other people at present. Having said that, there is potential under this placement for you to play the role of peacemaker in your family.

21 June the Sun moves into Cancer (Solstice) This could be the time of year when you feel at your most alive, confident and vibrant. It is an inner force which does not demand attention, admiration or applause. Even so, you will be radiating positive energy, warmth and comfort that draws others to you, and prompts them to coax you out of your shell. You are introverted by nature, but your shyness should not stop you from shining your Light for all the world to see.

11 July Mercury moves into Cancer This placement helps you to express creative ideas that are fed by your personal memories, thoughts & impressions. If you don’t feel confident enough to share them verbally, then write them down. Your communication style flows naturally, voicing the inner visions of your imagination. You do not need to imitate other authors or speakers. Just tell it as you see it.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR CANCERIANS

Uranus in Taurus Normally you are not keen on unexpected events that threaten your personal safety, or that of your home and family. But you are able to identify the creative potential that change brings. Cancerians are security conscious, but they do get bored in situations where nothing new is happening. They may be scared to begin with but actually, they are excited by the idea of doing something for the first time or coping with a novel kind of crisis. Uranus in Taurus is asking you to be at your most ingenious, by finding ways and means to thrive through these strange and unsettling times.

You are receiving ongoing support from Neptune as it moves through your fellow water sign Pisces. Neptune enhances your already fertile and creative imagination, by sending you dreams and visions for potential projects involving new life and new birth. Neptune also enables you to be more accepting and less frightened of the natural flow of things.

Jupiter dips into Pisces for a few weeks between May and July this year, which could have an expansive influence on you. You might find it easier to trust your own emotions and impressions, and tuning into unseen energies that guide and protect you could come more naturally to you. Beliefs and philosophies that you shied away from in the past because you judged them to be unrealistic and unachievable could now seem perfectly possible to you.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR CANCERIANS

Pluto is still moving through your opposite sign, Capricorn. This very challenging influence will no doubt have put you under considerable pressure over the past decade. But it will also have brought out the best in you. You have probably had to cope with circumstances and situations that pushed your buttons and tried your patience. Even so, you have endured the trials and tribulations, thanks to your own ingenuity and strong survival instincts. You have become more self-sufficient and less needy of approval from those you perceive to be better than you. You have secured the right to be respected for your personal attributes and abilities.

Chiron & Eris in Aries this difficult combination of energies is coming at you from two different angles.

Chiron in Aries is pushing you to work with your healing potential, beginning with the need to address any wounds that you might have inherited through your ancestral line. You are beginning to see that nobody can be helped solely by outside forces and that everyone must take an active role in their own healing process. Yet as each individual person gains that goal for themselves, they also achieve it on behalf of the generations that went before them and those who will come after them.

Eris in Aries is a very long term influence (from 1926 to 2048) with a reputation for creating conflict. But its real purpose is to make us more assertive. Truly brave and confident people do not need to argue, squabble or fight. They know what they want and they know how to get it without having to go to war. They are far more interested in sharpening their skills and making themselves more self-sufficient. Used wisely, Eris in Aries can help you to develop warrior-like attributes which can then be used to conquer the weaker aspects of your character.

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius As we have already said, Cancerians are not afraid of change if it brings them the chance to try new ways of doing things but they are against innovations that impose their influence by creating a cold, remote and impersonal environment. As the most subjective of the zodiac signs, you do not like living things to be treated like so many pieces of machinery. Systems, technologies, rules and regulations that are designed to make society run smoothly but which don’t respect or care about the lives of individual people and their families, are not for you. You prefer organic, home-made methods that have been handed down from one generation to the next. You are not backward-looking but you would be sorry to see some of the old ways being shoved aside by changes that, in your mind, are unfeeling and unnecessary. 

CANCERIAN LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The Nodes are always linked to you via your Ruler the Moon. These particular placements of the North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius may not influence you directly on a personal level but you can still tap into their potential to help you fulfil your Life Path mission. Their message to you is an educational one, inviting you to improve and extend your ability to receive, process and communicate information. As our society becomes more specialised, people who can translate complex concepts into terms that are easy for most of the population (no matter how young, old, clever or dim) to understand and follow will be much needed. It is your destiny to provide this service in whatever way you can. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

 

2021 for Leo

 

LEO & YOUR RULER, THE SUN

In search of Self: Leo’s Journey through the Zodiac

19 January Sun moves into Aquarius Once you accept that your life is yours to control, direct and create you can get started on deciding what to do with it. Follow your own star, dare to be different, dazzle the world with your unique quality and style. You can determine your own destiny! The future is yours to fulfil.

18 February Sun moves into Pisces Now that you have gained your sense of direction and of how you want 2021 to work out, it is time to tune into the guidance that flows to you through your dreams & visions. Sleep as much as you can and, as you may be feeling rather more sensitive and vulnerable than usual, it is important to retreat from the harsher aspects of life whenever possible.

20 March Sun moves into Aries we have arrived at the Equinox and now is the time to set your goals for the coming season. Start out with an overall idea of what you would like to achieve during the year and then break the path to your ultimate objective into a series of shorter term goals, or destinations. This is a very good placement for your Ruler, as it boosts your confidence, motivation and enthusiasm. But it might up your levels of impatience, so be careful not to push yourself too hard, too soon.

19 April Sun moves into Taurus This is an excellent time to balance the books and take stock of your situation. Make sure you have the material resources you need to provide a firm foundation on which to build. If they are scarce, do not be tempted to cut corners on quality but try to keep your overheads low. You may have to slow down for the time being, until you have replenished your reserves. Check that you are putting your talents and abilities to the best possible use, as they will help you generate the wealth that makes your life more enjoyable, comfortable and secure.

20 May Sun moves into Gemini This is a helpful placement for your Ruler, as it supports your ability to communicate, network and make connections with people from your peer group, community and neighbourhood. Everything you need is in your local area so long as you get linked in with the right contacts.

21 June Sun moves into Cancer (Solstice) Your ruler has reached a potent point in this year’s calendar. This could be a very creative time for you, provided you are prepared to give yourself entirely to whatever it is you are trying to accomplish. Your goal has to resonate with you on a personal level and your emotional attachment to it should be strong. Otherwise, you will not have the energy or enthusiasm to achieve it.

22 July Sun moves into Leo No doubt about it, this is your time of year! Celebrate your Self and give thanks for the Star Quality that makes you Special. Take your place centre stage, stand in the spotlight and radiate your waves of charismatic charm. Accept the applause and admiration that you so rightly deserve. Bask in the warm approval of those who love, cherish and respect you. Say it loud: I’m Me and I’m Proud!

22 August Sun moves into Virgo This could be your busiest time of year in one way or another. Perhaps you are clearing up after one stage of your life plan, or maybe you’re preparing for the next – or both! Either way, it is a good idea to work on making your daily routine more efficient & effective so that your health & wellbeing are better served. You may need to sharpen your delegation skills so you can make it easier for your colleagues to help you, and take some of the strain off you.

22 September Sun moves into Libra The life of Leo can be lonely at times, however popular and sociable you are. You can feel that everything is up to you, and that a lot is expected of you by those who look to you as a source of energy and leadership. Actually, Leos are quite proud of their managerial ability but everyone needs somebody to turn to for support and advice. What could be a better time than the Libra Equinox to re-dress the balance, to prioritise your partnership potential and to admit that it would be wonderful to have a Special Someone by your side. Perhaps they are already sitting there, waiting for you to notice them!

23 October Sun moves into Scorpio This may be the most challenging time of year for you, when you have to confront truths that are difficult to digest. These could be connected to the management of your resources which may require you to make some tough – even ruthless – moves. Likewise with important relationships, whether intimate or business. You may feel that you are involved in a game of chess where both partners are trying to out manoeuvre one another. It would be best to trust your instincts to guide you on to how to manage matters. Your motive is to serve your conscience and integrity by achieving the most effective outcomes for all concerned. You do not want to come away feeling guilty or ashamed.

22 November Sun moves into Sagittarius Your Ruler is happy in this fellow fire sign, as it helps to boost your overall levels of optimism and positivity. Your sense of adventure could be activated, and you may be looking forward to expanding your horizons. Some form of travel (physical, mental or spiritual) might be on the agenda, or you could be contemplating enrolling on a course that promises to increase your current levels of knowledge and experience.

21 December Sun moves into Capricorn (Solstice) Once again you have reached the turning of the year so be of good cheer! You have come this far, regardless of all the obstacles and delays that blocked your way. You are ready to give yourself a pat on the back for surviving through the hard times and for making the most of any opportunities that crossed your path. It is now time to evaluate your progress and optimise your plans for the next stage of your endeavour.

PLANETS IN LEO

11 June Mars moves into Leo This is when your leadership potential could begin to shine. Don’t be afraid to move into prime position and allow this placement to charge your aura with confidence and conviction. These are the key energies that will attract attention towards you and motivate others to follow your direction.

27 June Venus moves into Leo When it comes to showing off, you have just been awarded carte blanche. This placement enhances your charm and charisma to such an extent that your celebrity status sparkles even more brightly in the eyes of your already devoted fans. This is a good time to lavish your attention on your relationship with your Self and engage with the Inner Child who still craves your consideration. But don’t forget to shed a little of your Light on the rest of us mere mortals.

28 July Mercury moves into Leo Leos tend to have strong opinions and sound views on most matters. This is a good time to showcase your ideas by presenting them in front of an audience. Not everyone will agree with you and you may receive boos as well as cheers. But the important thing is to get your message across in a way that will wow your listeners and leave them wanting more.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR LEO

The not so good news is that Leo will be having quite a lot to deal with over the next couple of years. But the very good news is that you can call on some strong support to help you cope with the challenge.

Chiron & Eris are in Aries These two quite different influences are combining to fortify and sustain you. Chiron in Aries is reinforcing your self-healing abilities, so that any health issues (whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual) will seem more like incentives to become more self-sufficient in matters of your own vitality and wellbeing. You may become aware of forces that are generated by you and emanate from you which help other people to activate their own healing process. They could feel warmed and invigorated by your aura and your presence. This same force can be applied by you to your own body and the energy field that surrounds it. If, for example, you are suffering with toothache, you could ease it by placing your hands over the afflicted area. You will soon feel the soothing warmth radiating out through your hands into the source of your pain. If your distress is emotional, you can visualise it as a solid form with a rainbow of light rising above it, shining through the doom and gloom, making it disappear.

The influence of Eris in Aries is like having a brave gladiator standing beside you, waiting to win your battles and defend your honour. She (for she is a female warrior) will spring into action the moment you need her to help you assert yourself in situations that appear to be going against you. Her feisty spirit will give you the courage to stand up for yourself, to fight if you have to and to retreat when you are required to.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR LEO

The solar system giants, Jupiter & Saturn, have moved into Aquarius – your opposite sign. This suggests that as 2021 progresses, you might be feeling rather ganged up on. Not in any personal sense, but rather due to forces of circumstance and major shifts in global affairs that are completely beyond your control. None of this is your fault and, to a certain extent, there isn’t much you can do about it. Just continue to live your own life as fully and joyously as you can until the great wheel of fortune turns again and you find yourself in a new world, and in a new era.

Uranus in Taurus you do not need an astrologer to remind you that we are moving through a strange and unpredictable era. Changes are coming at us from all directions – hardly a day goes by when something that seemed sorted and settled has once again disintegrated into total chaos! The world desperately needs people like you who can perform the role of Light Beacons – joyful and bright, stable and strong, flashing your reassuring messages of hope into the night. Leos have that special, shining quality that no other signs possesses. You are the ones who, in spite of your own troubles, can keep us cheerful through these tumultuous times of transition.

Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn Both these major influences have been rumbling in the background, encroaching on the horizons of your life, for quite some time. It is almost as though you have become accustomed to their presence and even though you can’t trust them not to make problems or undermine your expectations, you now know how to cope with the challenges they create. You have become something of an expert at creating back-up plans in case your original scheme is sabotaged. Of course it is always stressful when this happens, and you still have to deal with the disappointment and heartache involved. But you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and give silent thanks for the fact that you are even wiser and more resilient than you were before.

Jupiter is moving into Pisces for a few weeks 13 May-28 July, adding to the impression that the world is a pretty crazy place. The best way to turn the energy to your favour would be by treating life as though it is your own personal movie channel. Cast yourself in the role of hero or heroine in a film script – whether it be comedy, documentary or high drama. See yourself moving through a sequence of scenes and acting out a series of adventures. It’s exciting and interesting, you’re learning new stuff, you’re having fun, you’re in control and you can switch the off button when it’s time to go to sleep. You are the director, producer and star of your own Life Story!

LEO LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are generally benign influences in your life, giving you easy access to the positive characteristics you have inherited through your ancestral line. These might include an optimistic, adventurous approach to life based on a certainty that everything will turn out alright in the end. Your role is to communicate this positivity to people who are struggling to comprehend what is going on. You can simplify the situation for them, by translating it into terms that they can easily understand. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN LEO & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN AQUARIUS

28 January Full Moon in Leo this is the right time to celebrate and be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished so far. You have proved your potential, you are fully aware of what you are capable of and you are ready to take your rightful place on the world stage.

11 February New Moon in Aquarius Your intentions should be focussed on the future. It is time to sow the seeds for projects that could continue to reap rewards many years from now. Your plans should contain an innovative element or incorporate significant updates, even if you are working with something that has already proved to be successful.

24 July Full Moon in Aquarius This is the 1st of two Full Moons in your opposite sign, which emphasises the importance of originality & innovation in major areas of your life. It is possible that things are turning out rather differently from how you were expecting them to. For this reason, you could be making radical changes or updates to your plans in order to bring them to fruition.

08 August New Moon in Leo At the end of the day, everything begins with you. You are the Captain of your own enterprise and it is up to you to make a success of your life. This is the right time to set your intentions to create plans for showcasing your Star Quality, for that is the special gift you have to offer the world.

22 August Full Moon in Aquarius the 2nd of two Full Moons in your opposite sign this year, pinpoints the role that teams and groups could play in bringing your projects to fruition. The helpful support of friends and kindred spirits who share your ideals and your hopes for the future may also be relevant to your overall success.

 

2021 for Virgo

 

VIRGO & YOUR RULING PLANET MERCURY

Your Ruling Planet Mercury is associated with the relaying and organisation of information. It travels quite rapidly through the zodiac, in spite of several apparent stops and reversals known as Mercury Retrogrades.

08 January Mercury moves into Aquarius This placement is great for changing your view of things and coming up with outside-the-box ideas. It is helpful if you’re hoping to connect with kindred spirits (possibly from very different backgrounds to your own) and it should support your attempts to work with colleagues in group or team settings. But be on the lookout for sudden changes of direction that could affect your health and wellbeing or interfere with your daily routine.

15 March Mercury moves into Pisces Most of your more enlightened ideas are likely to originate from your imagination and be inspired by dreams & visions. As they will probably be far more interesting and entertaining than ordinary life, you could get lost in them. Gazing out of the window when you are supposed to be concentrating on the task in hand could get you into trouble, in more ways than one! You may be feeling more sleepy than usual, so make sure you allow plenty of switch-off time.

04 April Mercury moves into Aries This placement of your ruling planet will help to keep your skills sharp and spot-on, and your techniques in tip-top condition. You’ll probably be running very quickly through your to-do list, ticking off the chores as you go. Be careful when handling sharp objects as you could be more accident-prone than usual. Look out for a tendency to be the one that puts their hand up first, while your colleagues sit back and watch you do all the work.

19 April Mercury moves into Taurus This placement is particularly good for taking a more laid-back approach. If you stop and think about it – it is the simple things of life that are usually the most satisfying and enjoyable. You may want to spend quality time surrounded by natural beauty, which will calm and sustain you. But knowing you, it won’t be long before your fingers are itching to take cuttings or tidy things up!

04 May Mercury moves into Gemini Now is the time for collecting facts, figures, news, views & data that might come in handy if you need to refer to it for guidance or instruction. You’ll probably have the urge to organise your information and file it neatly away for easy access. But please make time for some fun – possibly with pals from your peer group, neighbourhood or local community.

11 July Mercury moves into Cancer You might be feeling you’ve had more than enough socialising and are now in need of some privacy. Time spent in your own space will help you to digest your own memories, thoughts & impressions. Pottering about among your own things with soothe and comfort you and help to relieve some of the stresses and strains of everyday life.

28 July Mercury moves into Leo Don’t be shy about drawing attention to yourself and the quality of your output and service. Perhaps it is time you were promoted or paid more! At the very least you deserve some recognition for your hard work. You are a naturally modest person who does not crave power or praise, but everybody likes to be appreciated.

11 August Mercury moves into Virgo This placement of your ruling planet in your sign should be good for working with detailed information, facts and figures. It could help you to sharpen your skills, methods and techniques in order to get the most efficient and effective results from them. But try not to be overly critical of your work, or to get stressed and nervous about making mistakes. And don’t allow yourself to get bogged down in minor details that sap your time and energy.

30 August Mercury moves into Libra You may find that you are less efficient than usual, and you could be criticising yourself for wasting time on procrastinating over trivial details or minor matters. But this is not the moment to force yourself into making definite decisions. At least not until you have weighed up the pros & cons of which choice to go with. Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion. Talking to someone else about your concerns will help, even if you don’t need the advice you receive.

05 November Mercury moves into Scorpio You could become embroiled in situations that are not completely above board and which undermine your trust in the people you work or live with. Superficial explanations will not satisfy you and you will want to find out what is going on under the surface. You are quite right not to take things at face value. Don’t be afraid to demand proof if you are in the slightest bit suspicious that you are being exploited, or taken advantage of.

24 November Mercury moves into Sagittarius This is the perfect time to broaden your mind and widen your horizons. Something new and exciting needs to happen – something that brings a breath of fresh air into your daily existence. Perhaps your life has become rather dull, dreary or humdrum and needs some spicing up. A dash of adventure should do the trick.

13 December Mercury moves into Capricorn Generally speaking, your sign is easily pleased. But an invitation to put your mind into planning mode will no doubt delight you. The idea of rolling up your sleeves and getting to grips with templates and timetables is like nectar to a worker bee. Don’t be afraid to create strategies for long-term success. Draw on experience you have gained over time, and look to respected role models for their specialised guidance and instruction.

VIRGO RULER MERCURY MOVING RETROGRADE

30 January Mercury moves Retrograde in Aquarius Try not to get too fixated on any specific routine, regime or timetable as you may have to change your mind about it completely, due to the sudden arrival of new information, unforeseen developments or shifting circumstances.

21 February Mercury moves Direct in Aquarius Continue your contact with people who are teaching you to think outside the box. It’s possible that you have unusual or innovative skills which until now were rejected or ignored – probably because they were slightly unconventional or ahead of their time. These abilities could now be acknowledged and labelled as efficient, effective, useful and helpful.

29 May Mercury moves Retrograde in Gemini Don’t worry if you have to go back over stuff you assumed you were done with. It’s a chance to revisit issues you thought you had digested and dealt with in order to eliminate any niggling mistakes. Your techniques and methods may need to be appraised so that any faults, flaws and omissions can be corrected.

22 June Mercury moves Direct in Gemini If you’ve been experiencing glitches & hitches in your daily life these matters should now begin to sort themselves out. Try not to be irritated by the problems they have caused. Just re-boot your routine and move on. When you look back on this time, you will probably realise you were being held back for a good reason.

27 September Mercury moves Retrograde in Libra This is a point of re-balancing or equalising things that were initiated earlier but which by now have lost their lustre or run out of steam. However, it is not the right time to sign important agreements unless you are absolutely sure you are not putting your name to something you may regret in future. Choices and decisions should be checked and re-checked until you are completely clear and convinced that this is the best option for you.

18 October Mercury moves Direct in Libra If there have been any misunderstandings in your relations with people you see on a daily basis, or if you have been feeling out of sync with colleagues at work, there could be some welcome reconciliations. Just make sure it is not you who is left with all the cleaning up and clearing away.

PLANETS IN VIRGO

22 July Venus moves into Virgo it is definitely time to acknowledge the skills that enable you to get your work done so effectively and efficiently. Enjoy the pleasure of using them yourself and allow others to show their appreciation for your help and support. You are modest by nature, but a sincere “thank you, I couldn’t have done it without you” means more to you than any gold cup, prize or medal.

29 July Mars moves into Virgo This planetary placement is helpful if you have work that requires accuracy and precision, but try not to get too caught up in getting everything Just Right! Mars will probably give a boost to your energy levels, but it might also make you a bit jittery and impatient. Charging through your to-do list just for the sake of ticking boxes on your timetable will only result in you ending up frazzled and exhausted.

22 August the Sun moves into Virgo Your time of year is best spent paying attention to your own fitness and wellbeing. You are naturally conscientious and you expect to work hard. You body is your instrument and the most important item in your tool box. It must be maintained in tip-top condition if it is to serve its purpose and function correctly. Your daily routine must run smoothly, effectively and efficiently and your diet should be wholesome and nutritious in order to ensure that you can stay healthy and keep going.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR VIRGO

Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn 

The ongoing influence of Pluto has been reinforcing you for a long time now and will continue to do so for several years to come. Your sign is strong in its own way, although you are not the toughest type in the zodiac. Pluto offers you empowerment and helps you to feel more capable when it comes to coping with challenge. Perhaps it makes you more resilient and enables you to keep going for longer. The only problem is that Pluto can give you the sense that you are invincible – which could lead you to push yourself for longer and harder than is good for your general health and wellbeing.

Uranus brings another type of stimulus into your life. One of your most positive qualities is the ability to adapt. Virgo is capable of working with whatever situation, environment and materials they are given. You are excellent organisers and it does not take you very long to bring order to chaos. As Uranus is the prime creator of sudden change, it is providing you with a variety of problems to fix and all kinds of messiness to clear up. Virgo likes to be kept busy, and Uranus is giving you plenty to do! However, you must be careful not to overstretch yourself in an attempt to keep up with this most unpredictable of planets and his ever-moving goalposts.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR VIRGO

Neptune is in Pisces This is another long-term influence that has been bothering you from your opposite sign for a number of years. As a Virgo, you are not afraid of hard work. But you do not like the sort of vague, inconclusive situations which leave you doubtful and confused about what you are supposed to do. You hate wasting time and the idea of waiting around to see what may or may not happen really gets on your nerves. So does being fobbed off with elusive promises, lies and excuses. Your energy is drained and your anxiety grows, fed by shapeless doubts and nagging fears.

The nebulous influence of Neptune will be increased when Jupiter moves into Pisces May-July 2021. Things are likely to become more confusing and chaotic, although there could be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. The best way to cope with the craziness is by maintaining a sense of order in your own life. Keep yourself occupied and take each day as it comes. Do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by hopelessness and helplessness. There is always something you can do, even if it is only to sort your laundry. Anything that distracts you in moments of angst. Rhymical breathing, chanting mantras, singing simple and repetitive melodies can all help. And always remember that laughter is the best medicine!

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius this energy combination could make you feel that the world has become too big, too strange and too impersonal for your taste. As a Virgo, you are all for systems which can make life run more smoothly. But you feel that the methods should serve mankind – not the other way around. And while the ability to organise information comes naturally to you, you are concerned that data can be used to oppress or exploit people. This could be a good time for you to become involved in grass roots movements which campaign for the regulation of faceless corporations and conglomerates whose ultimate agenda is to turn us all into androids and robots.

Chiron & Eris in Aries This is another set of energies which is at odds with the key characteristic of your zodiac sign. Chiron in Aries puts a strong emphasis on the kinds of do-it-yourself therapies and healing techniques which stress the importance of independence and motivation. It is not that you disagree with this approach, but you may find it rather crude and simplistic. You are not a fan of the “As I want it, so it shall be” school of thought because your innate understanding of bodily systems and functions recognises the complex nature of health and wellbeing. You accept that someone can drive themselves into and out of pain and suffering, but you believe the prognosis for long-term healing requires the support of specialised practitioners and medical experts.

Generally speaking, Virgos prefer to avoid conflict. Quite sensibly, they see it as a waste of time and energy. What is the point of arguing and fighting when you should be trying to resolve the problem? One of your favourite sayings could be “the devil finds work for idle hands” and Eris, planet of war and strife, is a kind of she-devil when her energies are being used badly. Her current placement in Aries emphasises her more aggressive tendencies and underplays the importance of people getting on well together. But Eris can be invoked for a more useful purpose – which is to help make you more assertive. Virgos often struggle to say “NO”, which is why they end up feeling like victims or doormats. Eris can help you to put your foot down and stand up for yourself against people who are trying to take advantage of your willingness to help.

VIRGO LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are not being particularly helpful to your zodiac sign, but they are making you question the direction in which your destiny needs to go. Many Virgos might be experiencing the sense that life has become too much and may be feeling the urge to simplify things. They could be drawn to the idea of downsizing as an incentive to clear clutter and rid their environment of stuff they don’t really need. 2021 is a good year for you to focus on making your existence easier by reducing your expectations of what you should be doing to more modest levels.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN VIRGO & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN PISCES

27 February Full Moon in Virgo This is the perfect time to consolidate on the effort you have put in until now. You deserve to reap the rewards of your hard work. Give yourself credit for what you have achieved, even if the results appear relatively modest. All that matters is that you are satisfied with them.

13 March New Moon in Pisces If you want to manifest something, you have to start with a vision. This New Moon can help you to create the design or blueprint from which to build. You are sowing the seeds for something that at present is just a dream. But over time it will become reality.

07 September New Moon in Virgo This is a very good time to set your intentions on optimising the general efficiency, health and wellbeing of your daily life. Sow the seeds for practices which will help you stick to rhythms, routines, regimes and recipes that can enhance your everyday existence.

20 September Full Moon in Pisces There could be a sense that your vision has become reality, even if not quite in the way you imagined it would. All the same, you have proved to yourself that you are capable of turning dreams into reality.

 

2021 for Libra

 

LIBRA & YOUR RULING PLANET VENUS

Your Ruling Planet Venus is associated with the personal charm, flair and style you were born with, as well as your ability to form partnerships with other people. Venus has one Retrograde phase this year, offering you the chance to re-evaluate your relationships to ensure that everyone involved continues to get a fair deal.

08 January Venus moves into Capricorn This is a good time to apply your personal charm and negotiating skills to work on achieving your ambitions. It might be helpful to enlist the support of expert advice if you are unsure about which choice to make or direction to take.

01 February Venus moves into Aquarius You might be attracting new admirers, possibly from within group and team settings. If you’re looking for love then choose someone with a kindred spirit quality. Friends could turn out to be your top ambassadors

25 February Venus moves into Pisces You may be feeling ultra romantic or sentimental but please try not to be unrealistic in your expectations of other people. They are just the same as always so don’t view them through rose-coloured lenses! Accept them as they are with all their human faults.

21 March Venus moves into Aries Your ruler is urging you to climb into the driving seat of your life. Don’t be afraid to do things on your own, or to take the initiative in your dealings with other people. Try not to fall into the trap of competing with others, or pushing yourself to overtake them. Just focus on gaining your own goals.

14 April Venus moves into Taurus Take time to celebrate, recognise and appreciate the talents and abilities you were born with. They can be used to enrich your life and make it more enjoyable and fulfilling. They can be depended upon to help you earn a living, and to provide for your material comfort and security.

09 May Venus moves into Gemini Your popularity with local contacts and acquaintances is good right now so this is a favourable time for networking in your neighbourhood. It is especially helpful if you have something to sell as your clients, contacts and pals are willing to be your PR agents.

02 June Venus moves into Cancer You may feel like shying away from social activities for a while, to focus on the comforts of home and family. A period of privacy will allow you to regain a sense of equilibrium. It could also be helpful if you are trying to create harmony within your personal relationships.

27 June Venus moves into Leo Lavish attention on your relationship with your Self and engage with the Inner Child who still craves your unconditional approval. This is a partnership that must be prioritised. Because if you can’t love, respect and admire You, how will you be able to allow anyone else to?

22 July Venus moves into Virgo This is the perfect time to relish the skills that enable you to get your work done so efficiently and effectively and to enjoy the pleasure of using them. It may also be the moment to get to grips with situations where your willingness to be of service is being taken advantage of.

16 August Venus moves into Libra As this placement of your ruling planet enhances your personal charm and persuasiveness it can be very helpful if you’re hoping to negotiate a fair deal, especially if you are trying to get others to agree with your side of the situation!

10 September Venus moves into Scorpio This potent placement can be called on to help you invest your talents and abilities in ways that could enrich and empower you. It can also make you more mysterious and fascinating to others but watch out … as you could be more susceptible to falling under the spell of a fascinating stranger!

07 October Venus moves into Sagittarius Fall in love with positivity, optimism, new prospects, everything that makes your life more adventurous. It’s ok to give way to the free spirit within you and follow the call to push back the boundaries of your life, to explore and discover new experiences.

05 November Venus moves into Capricorn Consolidate on the preparations you may have made earlier in the year to apply your personal charm, style and flair in ways that are designed to help you achieve your ambitions in life.

LIBRA RULER VENUS MOVING RETROGRADE

19 December Venus moves Retrograde in Capricorn You may need to re-evaluate your plans and strategies for success, especially if they are not working to your best advantage. It could be that they are under-achieving or falling short of expectations because they are not drawing attention to your finest features. Maybe they are failing to promote your abilities and employ your talents to their highest potential. This needs to be rectified to ensure you gain the credit you deserve.

PLANETS IN LIBRA

30 August Mercury moves into Libra Your zodiac sign tends to procrastinate at the best of times, but you may find that your mind is even more indecisive under this planetary placement. However, this is not the moment to force yourself into making definite decisions. At least not until you have weighed up the pros & cons of which choice to go with. Don’t be afraid to ask for feedback, or to seek a second opinion. Talking to someone else about your concerns will help, even if you don’t agree with the advice or feedback you are given.

15 September Mars moves into Libra This could be a rather frustrating placement for you as it might seem like you’re taking one step forward and two back. Just focus on your flair for compromise and diplomacy, and you will probably end up getting what you want. This is not the best energy for making yes or no choices, but it is great for brokering and achieving win/win deals.

22 September the Sun moves into Libra The Libra equinox is the perfect time of year for you as it is all about re-balancing, harmonising and equalising situations that were initiated earlier but which by now have started to become too one-sided, or one-dimensional. This is especially so for you in your partnerships – personal and professional – with other people. Make sure that both parties are being treated fairly, and that they are benefitting equally from the relationship.

27 September Mercury moves Retrograde in Libra This is not the right time to sign important agreements unless you are absolutely sure you are not putting your name to something you may regret in future. Choices and decisions should be checked and re-checked until your mind is completely clear and convinced that this is the best option for you.

18 October Mercury moves Direct in Libra If there have been any misunderstandings in your dealings with other people, they could have been caused by communication issues. Perhaps things were said or written which went astray, got lost in translation or were taken the wrong way. Now is your chance to make things right again. You may need all your natural tact and diplomacy but there is no reason why you can’t reach an amicable agreement and restore peace and harmony.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR LIBRA

Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius The two giants of our solar system are on your side this year. They are adding a cutting edge to your intellectual ability, helping you to stay rational and detached on matters that might be causing panic and concern. They could be increasing your interest in the future and in technologies which make it easier for people to interact with like-minded groups, friends and kindred spirits. You may also be attracted to movements which are campaigning to close gaps between opposing polarities in society (black/white, rich/poor, male/female, young/old) in order to give everyone equal opportunities. But beware of a tendency to fall in love with utopian ideals that are noble in theory but difficult to implement in practice.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR LIBRA

Pluto in Capricorn and Chiron & Eris in Aries These slow-moving energies continue to needle you from afar, putting you under pressure and bringing pain and strife into your life.

Pluto in Capricorn may be blocking you in some way, perhaps by making it difficult for you to plan ahead. Your strategies for progress seem to be stymied by a Hydra’s head of obstacles. Each time you overcome one, another one appears to take its place. The purpose of Pluto is to toughen you up, to empower and transform you. By tackling the tests it sends you, you are becoming a much stronger version of your original self. You have survived Pluto’s boot camp, and you will emerge – regenerated – at the end of the experience.

Chiron in your opposite sign of Aries is encouraging you to heal painful wounds that you may be trying to deny or ignore. This is not easy for you, as it involves confronting unpleasant issues which, as a peace-loving Libran, you prefer to avoid. But there are some things that are better out than in, as the saying goes. If you do not deal with your wounds, they will continue to fester. It is much better to open them up to scrutiny so they can be diagnosed and treated accordingly. Chiron may send you therapists disguised as people who upset or irritate you. Their purpose is to expose the problems and mirror the hurts that you need to address.

Eris in Aries is a feisty, sometimes aggressive, energy which represents all the things you like the least. Librans usually feel very bad about getting angry as they do not enjoy the loss of equilibrium involved. While they appreciate a good discussion, they are upset by arguments and they would far rather not be drawn into fights. Even if they win, they tend to feel bad as their victory could mean the loss of a valued partner. But Eris has an important gift to offer you. She turns your tendency to give in to other peoples’ demands on your time and energy into an ability to assert yourself against their selfishness. She enables you to stand up for yourself in situations where you are being used, or taken advantage of.

Uranus in Taurus the rebellious energy of Uranus, with its unexpected upheavals and unstable influence, is a serious source of stress for you. You are worried by these constant changes – not just for yourself, but for all the people you care about. These sudden disruptions bring a discordant note into your life, making it very difficult for you to keep a sense of equilibrium. You don’t like having to be always on the alert, anticipating yet another unforeseen incident. Unfortunately, this is the current state of world events. We are passing through a time of transition which will take us through a series of evolutionary stages. We need you Librans to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible!

Neptune in Pisces Librans already struggle to stay focussed on a single target and the undermining influence of Neptune is not helping you. The confusion you feel when you contemplate all the possible options available to you will be increased with Jupiter moving into Pisces May-July 2021. Relationships involving individuals who can’t be relied on to keep their promises or turn up on time could be a source of stress for you and you would be best to steer clear of people who vampire your energy or manipulate you into feeling sorry for them. But there will be benefits from the Neptune/Jupiter effect as it can enhance your imagination and send you beautiful dreams and visions to awaken the creative artist in you. It may also make you more intuitive and receptive to unseen auras and atmospheres.

LIBRA LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are supportive of your sign. They are giving you easy access to the strengths that lie within your gene pool, accumulated over generations by your adventurous ancestors. These positive qualities could help to propel you along your life path. You may have a definite sense of a destiny that involves some sort of mentoring or counselling role, which might involve young people in need of educational support. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN LIBRA & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN ARIES

28 March Full Moon in Libra This is a good time to evaluate decisions you made earlier. You might need to compromise on certain aspects of your choices in order to achieve more favourable outcomes. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice from others before you seal the deal.

12 April New Moon in Aries It’s time to set your intentions on winning your goals. You are sowing the seeds for success, but you must be prepared to wait for results. Take one step at a time and don’t allow yourself to lose focus if you hit delays.

6 October New Moon in Libra This is a good time to initiate a new basis for partnership projects. You are looking to collaborate on 50/50 equal shares terms, with both sides balancing the amount they give and take.

20 October Full Moon in Aries The goals you set earlier in the year (perhaps at the New Moon in Aries) could be coming to fruition. Something you have been intent on winning may be achieved, if not fully then at least to the point where you recognise that the first stage of your project has been successfully completed.

 

2021 for Scorpio

 

SCORPIO & YOUR RULING PLANET PLUTO

Your Ruling Planet Pluto is associated with power and challenge. It provides you with the courage to confront harsh realities and the ability to transform darkness to light. The retrograde phases of Pluto offer you the chance to go deeper into whatever you are dealing with, in order to expose the truth.

Your Ruler continues its relentless journey through status-conscious Capricorn, intent on its mission to purge, transform and regenerate corporate hierarchies and authoritarian power structures. The last era of Pluto in Capricorn witnessed the American Revolution, when hard-working emigrants from Europe rebelled against an arrogant colonial rule which exploited and controlled them from afar. It also heralded the revolution in France and the guillotining of wealthy French aristocrats who ate cake while their peasant surfs & workers starved to death.

We are attracted to power because it helps us to feel in control. Most of us resent having to kowtow to others, especially if there is no respect for the person who is handing out the orders. But being the boss doesn’t come so easily to most of us either. We often fear our own power because we worry about causing more harm than good. This sense of foreboding prompts us to throttle back on our true potential and stick to situations that are far beneath our actual abilities.

If you recognise this pattern in yourself, you will probably be feeling frustrated with your life and discontented with your performance. The frustration can emerge in manipulative behaviour, where you orchestrate dramas or embroil yourself in complicated situations which leave you feeling unfulfilled and guilt-ridden.

Pluto in Capricorn is moving Retrograde for 5-6 months this year, urging you to stop messing about with your personal power and teaching you how to handle its potent energies. Once you gain a sense of the control that actually was never lost to you, you will feel ready to fulfil your true destiny as an invincible seeker of truth and transformation.

When Pluto moves direct on 06 October 2021, it will be time to reinforce and empower your plans for achieving long-term results. You may need to ringfence their ability to overcome obstacles and cope with challenge but you can be sure that if you are truly determined to succeed, you surely will.

SCORPIO RULER PLUTO MOVING RETROGRADE

“What makes Superman a hero is not that he has power, but that he has the wisdom and the maturity to use the power wisely.” Christopher Reeve

Pluto moves Retrograde 27 April-06 October 2021

This is a time of retribution – try to make amends for any instances where you may have misused the strengths and privileges that have been bestowed on you by the Cosmos. They were not given to you for your personal glorification, but as gifts to share with those less capable than yourself.

Power is only to be used with very high levels of responsibility, honesty and integrity as it corrupts those who dare to dabble in it for selfish reasons. People whose ambitions have led them to exploit or abuse others will have to account to their own consciences.

Pluto dictates that it is time to confront the consequences of our collective karma. Any human system that has employed exploitation or abuse to enrich and empower itself will be held accountable and cast into the fiery furnace that purifies and renews.

PLANETS IN SCORPIO

10 September Venus moves into Scorpio This potent placement can be called on to help you invest your talents and abilities in ways that could enrich and empower you. It can also make you more mysterious and fascinating to others. You may have to resist the temptation to entice them into a web of passion & intrigue. It might make you feel more desirable but unless your emotions are authentic, these games of bewitchery do not look good on your Eternal Soul’s CV.

23 October the Sun moves into Scorpio This may be the most challenging time of year for you, when you have to confront truths that are difficult to digest. These could be connected to the management of your resources which may require you to make some tough – even ruthless – moves. Likewise with important relationships, whether intimate or business. You may feel that you are involved in a game of chess where both partners are trying to out manoeuvre one another. It would be best to trust your instincts to guide you on how to manage matters. Your motive is to serve your conscience and integrity by achieving the most effective outcomes for all concerned. You do not want to come away feeling guilty or ashamed.

30 October Mars moves into Scorpio The planet of energy and drive is about to boost your levels of courage and motivation. You are eager to be empowered, so long as you can maintain your integrity and sense of control. Your gut instincts will be stronger than ever right now, so let your actions be guided by them. Try not to do anything that does not feel totally right to you. And hold back if you sense that the time is not quite right for making your move.

05 November Mercury moves into Scorpio You could become embroiled in situations that are not completely above board and which undermine your trust in people who control matters of crucial importance in your life. Superficial explanations will not satisfy you – you need to find out what is going on under the surface. Don’t be afraid to demand proof if you are in the slightest bit suspicious that you are being exploited, or taken advantage of. You may be called upon to expose dishonest dealings, or to speak truths that others are reluctant to face.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR SCORPIO

Neptune is in Pisces Overall, this placement of the planet of inspiration is a positive influence for you, as it enhances your already strong imagination, instincts and intuition. Neptune, on its long-term journey through Pisces, could awaken in you a more profound awareness of the unseen forces that guide your life. Most Scorpios are spiritual in one way or another and they yearn to control the potent, ethereal energies they sense in the atmosphere around them. You are beginning to understand how to flow with them and allow them to steer you, via your occult abilities, away from danger and towards your Destiny.

You could become evermore conscious of Neptune’s nebulous effect when Jupiter moves into Pisces May-July and then again in December 2021. You might start to sense a much improved clarity and definition in your psychic flashes, which would help you to have more faith in them. You’ll find it easier to believe and trust the information they send you and to follow the guidance they give you. If you are already operating as a spiritual coach, mentor or medium then your work will probably expand and grow as your fluency in translating and interpreting messages from higher realms of consciousness improves.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR SCORPIO

“Look around you. Everything changes. Everything on this earth is in a continuous state of evolving, refining, improving, adapting, enhancing … changing. You were not put on this earth to remain stagnant.” Steve Maraboli

Clash of the Titians: Uranus in Taurus and Jupiter & Saturn in Aquarius

Make no mistake, the cataclysmic combination of these heavy weight planets will guarantee unmitigated change, which is what you should expect to be coping with during 2021. Many of the so-called normal life scenarios that we take for granted could be affected due to major shifts in our current political, climatic and environmental systems.

As one of the Water Signs, Scorpio is in the group that will sustain the shell-shock which follows sudden change. They will carry the emotional trauma, memories and impressions of the chaos and upheaval caused by Uranus. But they are also the ones who will seek spiritual significance in the events so they can offer authentic empathy and healing to those who need it most.

Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius could bring out the humanitarian in you, especially in situations where you perceive that people are being treated like machines. Arguably the strongest and most powerful of the zodiac signs, Scorpio energy comes into its own when fighting for the underdog. You are far more often the victor than the victim of your situation. You seldom allow anyone to attack you and get away with it, and you are prepared to protect those who are weaker or more submissive than you. But you are subject to spells of serious depression, when the world seems like a black hole of meaningless chaos and cold depravity. It could be that you will be feeling this way quite a lot, on and off, this year. Try to fight the despair, for it is your worst enemy. Trust in the future. Look forward to a time when Gaia is restored to her former glory and Paradise is reborn, right here on beautiful Planet Earth.

Chiron & Eris in Aries We have already mentioned your role as healer and guardian of the weak and vulnerable, which is very much supported by this combination of planetary power. But there is a stressful side to the intensity of the energy involved and the pressure you feel to fight for people who are either unwilling or unable to stand up for themselves. You must accept that it is not your responsibility to rescue them. It is rather to empower them with your example. As they witness your feisty forcefulness, your stubborn resistance to those who attack you and your determination not to give in to your opponents, they become more assertive themselves. This increase in their ability to defend themselves has a healing quality which soothes their wounds and solves their problems.

“A healer’s power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses.” Eric Micha’el Leventhal

SCORPIO LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are not being particularly helpful to you on a personal level, but they are making you aware of certain issues that could be a source of stress in your life. As a Scorpio, you are usually able to understand what is really going on under the surface, no matter how deeply the truth is hidden. But it is often a struggle to interpret what you see. Yet there is a sense of having to alert yourself and others to the possibility of danger. You do not want to frighten people with dramatic messages of doom and gloom, but you do wish to warn them that things may not be what they seem. Do not try to cope with this heavy responsibility all by yourself. Continue to watch and witness but do not feel obliged to pass on the information you observe unless you feel strongly guided to do so. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN SCORPIO & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN TAURUS

27 April Full Moon in Scorpio You could have a sense that you have reached the end of a significant phase in your life, and that a mission has been accomplished or completed. Perhaps things have been very challenging or complicated and you have earned a well-deserved rest. It is now time to relax and replenish your energy.

11 May New Moon in Taurus Set your intentions on starting something which is designed to deliver high-quality results. This is a good time to sow seeds for projects that may grow rather slowly but which ultimately will be well made and built to last.

04 November New Moon in Scorpio Set your intentions on starting something which will help to transform situations that are seriously in need of regeneration. They may appear lifeless, but – like a neglected garden – under the surface of the soil lie the seeds of renewal and rebirth.

19 November Full Moon in Taurus (Partial Lunar Eclipse) Something you have been building for a while may be nearing completion, but the final stages could take longer than expected. Don’t withdraw your commitment, as it should become clear why you had to wait for results which might be even better than you had originally anticipated.

 

2021 for Sagittarius

 

SAGITTARIUS & YOUR RULING PLANET JUPITER

Your Ruling Planet Jupiter is associated with exploration and adventure. It provides you with a positive, optimistic outlook on life. The retrograde phases of Jupiter offer you the opportunity to re-discover roads you have already travelled, but wish to revisit.

Jupiter spends most of the year in Aquarius, creating an atmosphere of huge change and the promise of plenty of new things appearing over the horizon. All this is fine for you as it supports your sense of adventure. While other less optimistic signs are steeped in fear about what the future looks like you are out there searching for positive potentials and exciting opportunities. These could be coming to you in the form of team or group situations or in the guise of kindred spirit connections. 2021 is a good year for you to expand your understanding of new technologies and your experience of cultures and customs that are very different to yours. My advice would be to try anything that comes your way or crosses your path, however strange or unconventional it may seem to begin with. This is not the time to worry about sticking to what you already know. Break free from the constraints of your comfort zone and take off on a voyage of discovery into the great Unknown.

Jupiter will be moving into Pisces 13 May-28 July 2021 This energy is less positive for you as it could make your situation rather undefined or unclear. You must be very careful not to be guided by unrealistic prospects or pie in the sky promises. There is nothing wrong with taking a hopeful approach to life but you will need to curb any tendency to take risks that have not been fully assessed. “Be careful what you wish for” could be your mantra during this period, as it will remind you not to be too careless, slapdash or naïve in your expectations. However, this is an excellent time to develop your psychic awareness, so that its Wise Guidance is always available to you. You will be expanding your ability to interpret information from other dimensions, which flows to you through your imagination and through the symbols that appear in your dreams and visions. Do not disregard them as random or accidental. They are showing you the world from a higher perspective.

SAGITTARIUS RULER JUPITER MOVING RETROGRADE

20 June Jupiter moves Retrograde in Pisces Your hopes and visions may not be quite ready to manifest yet. You need to continue your voyage of discovery into the mysterious language of dreams and explore ways of interpreting the information they contain.

28 July Jupiter Retrogrades into Aquarius It may seem as if learning curves which were helping you to see further into the future are unravelling, or travelling backwards. But this is only so you can collect extra knowledge and experience before you resume your onward journey when Jupiter moves Direct in Aquarius on 18 October.

PLANETS IN SAGITTARIUS

07 October Venus moves into Sagittarius Fall in love with positivity, optimism, new prospects, everything that makes your life more adventurous. It’s ok to give way to the free spirit within you and follow the call to push back the boundaries of your life, to explore and discover new experiences.

22 November the Sun moves into Sagittarius This is the season that boosts your overall levels of optimism and positivity. Your sense of adventure could be activated, and you may be looking forward to expanding your horizons. Some form of travel (physical, mental or spiritual) might be on the agenda, or you could be contemplating enrolling on a course that promises to increase your current levels of knowledge and experience.

24 November Mercury moves into Sagittarius This is the perfect time to broaden your mind and raise your levels of knowledge and awareness. Study a subject that introduces you to new concepts, languages and cultures. Take your brain on a voyage of discovery into the Unknown! It is also a good time to form networks in communities with a global identity, which encourage communication and the sharing of information.

13 December Mars moves into Sagittarius You may be feeling extra adventurous – keen to push past your current boundaries and expand your horizons. Watch your levels of impatience and impetuousness and do not take risks without assessing the potential for accident and injury. Channel this fiery enthusiasm into activities that can increase your knowledge of yourself, and of the world you live in.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR SAGITTARIUS

Saturn in Aquarius You are very tuned into the excitement that comes with major change but you are also aware that such times can be very difficult. This knowledge has a sobering effect on you, and helps you to take a sensible, cautious approach to the future. You are not being pessimistic, but you have learned from experience that optimism has its limits and will only take you so far. You are also concerned about people whose lives are made more arduous by this transition between one era and the next. For this reason, you might become interested in social movements which pledge to promote social equality and reinforce human rights.

Chiron & Eris in Aries This combination of energies is supportive of your self-healing process, and also of your ability to assert yourself in situations which threaten your freedom and independence. You have 2 mythical icons in your corner. Wounded Healer Centaur Chiron is helping you to confront and clear the painful wounds that hurt you and make you unhappy. Whereas feisty Eris is urging you to stand up for yourself and fight the foes who bring strife into your life. You can’t fail to win with both these Olympians as your allies!

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR SAGITTARIUS

Neptune is in Pisces this ongoing influence has been draining your energy and enthusiasm for a few years now, and will continue to do so for some time to come. It is an unseen force that is impossible to pin down as it ebbs and flows, appears and disappears. It has a will o the wisp quality that cannot be defined in tangible terms. It can make you feel like retreating from reality or escaping into activities that undermine your confidence and optimism. But Neptune can also serve you in positive ways, by helping you to fly free of the boundaries of beliefs that have limited you, or prevented you from developing higher levels of awareness and understanding.

Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. This heavy-duty duo is a source of stress in your life, with its relentless insistence on challenge and change. There is nothing very cheerful about this intense combination. It is like a volcanic force that brings an unending stream of unpleasant upheaval and upsetting experiences into your previously carefree existence. Its true purpose is to evolve you and to raise your current levels of consciousness. And while in the long-term that is exactly what the outcome will be, in the meantime it often feels like a boot-camp learning curve with no end in sight!

SAGITTARIUS LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are affecting you very directly. It is as though you have unfettered access to the lessons learned by your ancestors over eons of time and space. You are definitely not doomed to repeat them – in fact they are offered to you as a springboard or lift-off point. Once you accept that the knowledge of previous generations is in your DNA you realise that you are destined to continue the journey of discovery they started so long ago. Your adventures and experiences will expand on theirs and your contribution will be handed on to the children of the future. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN SAGITTARIUS & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN GEMINI

26 May Full Moon in Sagittarius (Total Lunar Eclipse) There could be the sense of an adventure that has come to an end. There should be no regrets, just the awareness that you have expanded your mind, grown in knowledge and experience and added to the abundant supply of impressions already imprinted on your memory.

10 June New Moon in Gemini (Annular Solar Eclipse) Set your intentions to sow seeds for projects that could involve education, teaching or communicating with young people. An imaginative approach will work better than simply going by the book, so let your ideas be guided by memories, moods and emotional impressions.

04 December New Moon in Sagittarius (Total Solar Eclipse) There is important knowledge yet to be gained which will be revealed to you in due course. You will discover it when the time is right and you will know it when you see it.

19 December Full Moon in Gemini An educational programme, a sales or marketing idea, a communication or logistics project could be coming to fruition. It has passed through the elementary stage and is now ready to be taken to the next phase of development. This would be a good point to address any teething problems which may prevent you from moving your creation to a more advanced level.

 

2021 for Capricorn

 

CAPRICORN & YOUR RULING PLANET SATURN

Your Ruling Planet Saturn is associated with ambition, authority and structure. It provides you with the discipline you need to achieve your goals in life. The retrograde phases of Saturn help you to reinforce your plans and strategies for future success.

Saturn is now in Aquarius, which is an interesting placement for your ruler as it is all about forming strategies for the future. Although Saturn tends to resist the type of abrupt changes that upset existing plans, it is perfectly capable of taking them in its stride. Capricorns will always prefer what has been tried and tested when possible, but only when it continues to generate tangible rewards. Once something has passed its sell-by date, Capricorn reluctantly rejects it and gets to work on building alternative routes to successful results. You are not the sign to be prevented by anything short of death from achieving your ambitions! You keep on climbing, regardless of how many times the ladder breaks under you. The next two years will be demanding, but their purpose is to help you focus your efforts on the future. As human society and its systems travel through the transitions that mark the end of an era, you will be formulating plans for success in the coming times.

CAPRICORN RULER SATURN MOVING RETROGRADE

23 May Saturn moves Retrograde in Aquarius Long term strategies for future success may need to be put on hold or revised in some way. Innovative ways of doing things could prove unfeasible but don’t give up, just keep trying to find ways of making them work. It is possible they are slightly ahead of their time. In which case they may have to be shelved for now, and replaced by interim or alternative back-up plans.

11 October Saturn moves Direct in Aquarius The struggle to plan for changing times continues, but it brings about important and lasting innovations which will serve future generations. If you are a champion of forward-thinking schemes for business and industry, do not be put off by negative judgement or criticism of your hopes for a better world.

PLANETS IN CAPRICORN

LONG TERM INFLUENCE IN YOUR SIGN

Pluto continues its relentless journey through Capricorn, continuing its mission to purge, transform and regenerate corporate hierarchies and authoritarian power structures. Pluto dictates that it is time to confront the consequences of our collective karma. Any human system that has employed exploitation or abuse to enrich and empower itself will be held accountable and cast into the fiery furnace that purifies and renews.

27 April Pluto moves Retrograde in Capricorn We see Pluto’s undermining influence at work in a failing social order that is crumbling before our eyes. People whose ambitions have led them to exploit or abuse others will have to account to their own consciences. This is a time of retribution, so try to make amends for any instances where you may have misused your personal power.

06 October Pluto moves Direct in Capricorn Reinforce and empower your plans for achieving long-term results, thereby ensuring their ability to overcome the obstacles and challenges of tough times. Don’t be surprised to find that some of the key strategies you are invested in have been completely transformed and are now a reborn version of what was originally proposed.

SHORTER TERM EFFECTS IN YOUR SIGN

08 January Venus moves into Capricorn This is a good time to apply your talents & abilities to achieving your ambitions. Put yourself in planning mode and formulate some strategies on which to build your future success.

05 November Venus returns to Capricorn Consolidate on the preparations you may have made earlier in the year to apply your talents & abilities, as well as your personal charm, style and flair, in ways that are designed to help you achieve your ambitions in life. When Venus moves Retrograde in Capricorn on 19 December you may need to re-evaluate your plans and strategies for success, especially if they are not working to your best advantage. It could be that they are under-achieving or falling short of expectations because they are not drawing attention to your finest features. Maybe they are failing to promote your abilities and employ your talents to their highest potential. This needs to be rectified to ensure you gain the credit you deserve.

13 December Mercury moves into Capricorn Put your mind into planning mode. The idea of rolling up your sleeves and getting to grips with the task of formulating forecasts & budgets should fill you with a quiet sense of satisfaction. Don’t be afraid to create strategies for long-term success. Draw on experience you have gained over time, and look to respected role models for their specialised guidance and instruction.

21 December the Sun moves into Capricorn (Solstice) Once again you have reached the turning of the year so be of good cheer! You have come this far, regardless of all the obstacles and delays that blocked your way. You are ready to give yourself a pat on the back for surviving through the hard times and for making the most of any opportunities that crossed your path. It is now time to evaluate your progress and optimise your plans for the next stage of your endeavour.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR CAPRICORN

You have found an unusual helpmate in revolutionary planet Uranus. Capricorns are not crazy about the arrival of random changes that upset their long term plans for success and force them back to the drawing board. But this placement of erratic Uranus in your fellow earth sign Taurus is taking you back to the basic flaws in your original designs so that you can correct and re-launch them. All you earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are made miserable by mistakes. You accept that they are an inevitable part of being human but they spoil your sense of satisfaction and achievement. Uranus is giving you the chance to demolish your faulty structures and rebuild them from the ground up. But you will need to be aware, as Uranus moves Retrograde in Taurus 20 August, that changes which are forced through too soon tend to cause a serious amount of unexpected and unwanted upheaval.

The ongoing influence of Neptune in your complementary sign of Pisces will be boosted by expansive Jupiter moving into Pisces May-July this year. The combination of these energies is a source of inspiration to you, helping to enhance your ability to create the dreams and visions that provide raw material for successful plans. Capricorns are normally very sensible and pragmatic but even they can be enticed by ethereal images of how things could be. The biggest problem for you will be to steer clear of pie-in-the-sky promises and potentials which are obviously unrealistic and impossible to manifest without breaking the budget.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR CAPRICORN

Chiron & Eris in Aries this difficult influence could be bringing pain, grief and conflict into your life. As a Capricorn, you are not someone who feels comfortable about examining and diagnosing their own wounds. You would rather leave that to experts in the healing professions who can provide you with the pharmaceutical cures which enable you to carry on achieving your ambitions. It is a similar story when you are faced with people or circumstances that seem determined to defeat you. You tend to turn your back on their attempts to draw you into conflict. While this is a wise ploy in many ways, it often results in delaying rather than resolving the problem. Both Chiron and Eris are urging you to take a more pro-active and self-assertive approach to healing your wounds and confronting your enemies.

Jupiter in Aquarius We have already discussed the underlying influence that your ruling planet Saturn moving through the unorthodox sign of Aquarius is likely to have in your life. For much of 2021, Saturn will be joined by fellow giant planet Jupiter. This placement promises major changes in a relatively short space of time, making life more unpredictable and therefore less manageable. This could be stressful for you, as it will create the constant hassle of having to adapt and improvise. It might be best to expect a year of revolutionary shifts when everything is being evolved and its final form has yet to materialise.

CAPRICORN LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are not particularly relevant to you on a personal level, but they could be a source of stress in your life. It might seem as though regulations, procedures and protocols which have served humanity for centuries can no longer be relied on to maintain social order. This is how it should be, for the time has come to substitute old ways for simpler systems that are far better suited to the 21st Century. Your role as a Capricorn is to help re-write the rule books and make them easier for people of all races, ranks and age groups to understand and follow. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN CAPRICORN & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN CANCER

It is very interesting to see that there is no Full Moon in Cancer in 2021. This suggests that, while the seeds of new life and new creations are being planted all over the world they will not be born, or come to fruition until next year at the earliest. They will need to be cared for, protected and nurtured during this protracted growth phase, and they may require special support as they acclimatise to current earthly conditions.

13 January New Moon in Capricorn This is the optimum time to set intentions and sow seeds for new growth in your vocation, career or profession. You are at the initial stage of creating plans and strategies which provide the structure, goals and timelines that will help to build long term success. You could say this is the most important phase in your investment of time, energy and resources, as the effort you put in now will pay off later.

24 June Full Moon in Capricorn Hopefully by now, you will be rewarded with a sense of achievement and a feeling that your efforts so far have been worth while. But this is not the time to turn your back and walk away. You are still responsible for the continuing survival of your creation, which will require your personal input for some time to come.

10 July New Moon in Cancer Don’t resist the urge to be more creative when formulating intentions and sowing seeds for the birth of new projects and life forms. Allow your instincts, emotions, moods and impressions to guide your choice of materials and determine your strategies for success.

 

2021 for Aquarius

 

AQUARIUS & YOUR RULING PLANET URANUS

Your Ruling Planet Uranus is associated with innovation and change. It provides you with the urge to evolve and an interest in the future of humanity. The retrograde phases of Uranus help you to resolve and integrate energies or events which have happened randomly or unexpectedly.

Because your Ruler is an “impersonal” planet astrologers see it as a global influence, affecting generations and nations. But much of the Uranus Effect we see at work in the world is reflected in the lives of individual people, especially if they are born under the sign of Aquarius.

Moving through the stolid sign of Taurus, unpredictable Uranus is raring to revolutionise us in ways that we won’t be able to ignore! His objective is to evolve us by waking us up and shaking us out of our comfort zones, even if the only way to do that is by making the ground move under our feet. Many of us will quake in fear at the thought of such upheaval, but trapped inside all of us is an Inner Wild Child, a free spirit who is longing to break out of its box – however cosy the cage may be.

Going against the flow, daring to be different and upsetting the apple cart are activities that might mark you as a misfit. But yours is the zodiac sign with the rational minds and intellectual skills which will help humanity cope with the unexpected, unknown, untried and undiscovered events that Uranus has in store for us. We look to Aquarius to keep us in the know and help us to see how our world will look in future, following this time of turbulent transition.

AQUARIUS RULER URANUS MOVING RETROGRADE

One of the biggest problems with the current placement of your Ruler in Taurus is that of things being done or taking place far too suddenly. Either because some bright spark has a lightbulb moment and assumes their idea will revolutionise the world, or events take an erratic turn and contradict all the forecasts for how things should happen. Whatever the cause or reason, the underlying issue is lack of basic preparation.

While Uranus travels through Taurus, there is a tendency to ignore the importance of firm foundations. Whether you are building an abstract concept or a bridge across the Amazon river, you still need to structure the process of your project. By the time Uranus moves Retrograde in Taurus on 20 August it will become obvious that major modifications to existing systems which were forced through without adequate preparation will be causing unrest – possibly to the point of rebellion. It could be that these concerns will not be calmed down before 18 January 2022, when Uranus moves direct in Taurus. Hopefully by then there will be less spur of the moment improvisation and more carefully considered conscious control over the process of implementing necessary change.

PLANETS IN AQUARIUS

LONGER TERM INFLUENCES IN YOUR SIGN

Serious Saturn moved into your sign late last year, suggesting that the next two years will be demanding, but their purpose is to help you focus your efforts on the future. As human society and its systems travel through the transitions that mark the end of an era, you will be formulating plans for success in the coming times.

23 May Saturn moves Retrograde in Aquarius Long term strategies for future success may need to be put on hold or revised in some way. Innovative ways of doing things could prove unfeasible but don’t give up, just keep trying to find ways of making them work. It is possible they are slightly ahead of their time. In which case they may have to be shelved for now, and replaced by interim back-up plans.

11 October Saturn moves Direct in Aquarius The struggle to plan for changing times continues, but it brings about important and lasting innovations which will serve future generations. If you are a champion of forward-thinking schemes for business and industry, do not be put off by negative judgement of your ideals or criticism of your hopes for a better world.

Jupiter spends most of the year in Aquarius, bringing an atmosphere of huge change and the promise of plenty of new things appearing over the horizon. These could be coming to you in the form of team or group situations or in the guise of kindred spirit connections. 2021 is a good year for you to expand your understanding of new technologies and your experience of cultures and customs that are very different to yours. My advice would be to try anything that turns up or crosses your path, however strange or unconventional it may appear to begin with.

28 July Jupiter Retrogrades into Aquarius It may seem as if learning curves which were helping you to see further into the future are unravelling, or travelling backwards. But this is only so you can collect extra knowledge and experience before you resume your journey. Jupiter will move forward again in your sign on 18 October, staying there until 29 December 2021. So, you will have plenty of time to search for options and opportunities to take you into the future!

SHORTER TERM EFFECTS IN YOUR SIGN

08 January Mercury moves into Aquarius This placement is great for learning something completely new, changing your view of things and coming up with outside-the-box ideas. It is helpful if you’re hoping to connect with kindred spirits (possibly from very different backgrounds to your own) in your neighbourhood, and it should support your attempts to network or work with colleagues within group and team settings. But be on the lookout for sudden changes of direction that could affect your health and wellbeing or interfere with your daily routine. Pay attention when you’re out and about in case of unexpected or accidental events.

19 January Sun moves into Aquarius Once you accept that your life is yours to control, direct and create you can get started on deciding what to do with it. Follow your own star, dare to be different, dazzle the world with your unique quality and style. You can determine your own destiny! The future is yours to fulfil.

30 January Mercury moves Retrograde in Aquarius Don’t get too fixated on any specific idea or viewpoint, or too attached to any particular routine, regime or timetable. You may have to change your mind about it completely, due to the sudden arrival of new information, unforeseen developments or shifting perspectives.

01 February Venus moves into Aquarius Looking at innovative ways to apply your talents & abilities could give you access to new admirers, possibly within group and team settings. If you’re looking for love then choose someone with a kindred spirit quality. Your friends could turn out to be your top ambassadors.

21 February Mercury moves Direct in Aquarius Continue your contact with people who are teaching you to think outside the box. It’s possible that your more unusual ideas and innovative skills which until now seemed to be ignored (probably because they were slightly unconventional or ahead of their time) are coming into their own and beginning to resonate with a more receptive group of kindred spirits. These abilities could now be acknowledged and labelled as efficient, effective, useful and helpful.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR AQUARIUS

Chiron & Eris in Aries

This energy combination is a useful ally to call on as your self-healing process unfolds. Chiron is helping you to confront and clear the painful wounds that hurt you and make you unhappy. Whereas feisty Eris is urging you to assert yourself against the enemies who threaten your freedom and independence.

Their influence is urging you to become the kind of humanitarian healing warrior who supports and defends those less able to stand up for themselves. For this reason, you may be drawn to forward-thinking movements with evolutionary ideas about creating systems that respect all life forms and protect their individual interests.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR AQUARIUS

The nebulous influence of Neptune in Pisces is magnified when Jupiter moves into Pisces 13 May -28 July this year. This is not an easy energy in your life, as it brings doubt and confusion. True that it is also inspirational, but in ways which are difficult to interpret. Aquarians take a scientific approach to life. As soon as something seems logical to you and you can apply rational explanations to it, it becomes raw material to your inventive intelligence. You can evolve it to a higher level of usefulness. But you don’t like dealing with vague visions or evasive answers. You are irritated when you can’t get a straight forward response to a simple question. For example, when you ask how long it will take to bake a cake, “oh … well … it depends ……” is not what you want to hear. “It depends on the recipe, the temperature of the oven and the size of the cake tin” is much more your style. You now have a series of well defined variables to work with!

Nothing much is clear-cut while Neptune and Jupiter are wandering about in Pisces so there is no point in trying to evaluate this insubstantial energy or translate it into 3D terms. You just have to accept its elusive nature, and understand that it is “such stuff as dreams are made on”. It is providing the raw material for inventions that, channelled through minds like yours, will take shape in future times.

Pluto in Capricorn Aquarians tend to have an uneasy relationship with authority, especially when it manifests as privilege and power abuse. Your sign is the most humanitarian in the zodiac and it offends your intelligence to see one group of people oppressing and exploiting another. In your ideal world, every life form would have equal status and the earth’s resources would be shared equally among them.

In these times of great transition, where the old-established hierarchies of power and influence are being exposed as cruel and corrupt, you have a very challenging yet important role to fulfil. You are not expected to single-handedly change society, or risk your life by raising a rebellion against those in high places. You are simply being asked to make subtle personal changes which will, over time, transform the human race and evolve it into a more advanced version of itself.

AQUARIUS LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are supporting your progress along your life path. You can draw from the reserves of knowledge and experience stored within your gene pool to help you fulfil the destiny that brought you here to assist humanity through these turbulent times of transition. Your Aquarian mission is to use your innovative intelligence in ways which will help create systems that are simple to follow and easy to understand. You could be especially good at navigating short-cuts through situations which have become far too complex or unwieldy. You can lead lost souls out of the maze they have been wandering around in for quite some time. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN AQUARIUS & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN LEO

28 January Full Moon in Leo this is the right time to celebrate and be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished so far. You have proved your potential, you are aware of what you are capable of and you are ready to take your rightful place on the world stage.

11 February New Moon in Aquarius Your intentions should be focussed on the future. It is time to sow the seeds for projects that could continue to reap rewards many years from now. Your plans should contain an innovative element or incorporate significant updates, even if you are working with something that has already proved to be successful.

24 July Full Moon in Aquarius This is the 1st of two Full Moons in your sign, which emphasises the importance of originality & innovation in major areas of your life. It is possible that things are turning out rather differently from how you were expecting them to. For this reason, you could be making radical changes or updates to your plans in order to bring them to fruition.

08 August New Moon in Leo At the end of the day, everything begins with you. You are the Captain of your own enterprise and it is up to you to make a success of your life. This is the right time to set your intentions to create plans for showcasing your originality, for that is the unique gift you have to offer the world.

22 August Full Moon in Aquarius the 2nd of two Full Moons in your sign this year, pinpoints the role that teams and groups could play in bringing your projects to fruition. The helpful support of friends and kindred spirits who share your ideals and your hopes for the future may also be relevant to your overall success.

 

2021 for Pisces

 

PISCES & YOUR RULING PLANET NEPTUNE

Your Ruling Planet Neptune is associated with inspiration and imagination. It provides you with visions of potentials and possibilities. The retrograde phases of Neptune help you to interpret the strange symbols that flow through your dreams.

“A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.” Rosabeth Moss Kanter

Your ruling planet Neptune, strong in its own sign Pisces provides the ideal conditions for people like you to channel out-of-this-world information that could help us to build a heaven here on earth. We may not be aware that we are directly involved in the movement that is creating a shift in consciousness on our home planet but we are all doing so. Gradually, it is beginning to dawn on us that we have total control over our own perceptions and therefore over our own lives.

As a Pisces, you are channelling the influences from Neptune that are helping us to unlock the power of our imagination and change the state of our minds through the use of self-belief, positive thoughts and imagery. Those born under your zodiac sign are receiving and transmitting inspirational energy while they are asleep, meditating, dozing or daydreaming. 

This may give the impression that you are snoozing in a hammock on a beautiful beach with the waves lapping gently on the shore, which is far from the truth. Channelling multi-dimensional messages is exhausting work – physically, mentally and emotionally. It can also be very scary and confusing as some of the things you see do not make much sense in earthly terms.

It is also very difficult not to get stranded in the land of Dreams, drifting between the realms of vision and reality. That is why it is so important for Pisceans to incorporate structure into their daily routine. Rituals and regimes which bring a reassuring rhythm to your life can help to keep you healthy and sane.

This will be all the more obvious when Jupiter moves into Pisces May-July 2021. The chaos around you will probably increase, which makes it extra important for you to maintain healthy boundaries between you and the craziness. You will be able to see beyond it to the light at the end of the tunnel, but many others will not. You cannot afford to be overwhelmed by their panic and despair for your mission is to act as a beacon of hope in these troubling times. Just keep radiating messages of positivity and peace. Your optimistic outlook will soothe their insecurity and bolster their faith in the future.

As Jupiter moves Retrograde in Pisces on 20 June there could be a role for you in situations where people have become very disappointed, or disillusioned. Something or someone they fervently believed in has let them down. To be fair, they probably should have been a bit more careful about placing their trust in the first place! But this is a learning curve for them, and you can help them to travel along it until they reach a place of higher understanding. Do not be afraid to introduce these lost souls to the concept of spiritual guidance. Suggest that they explore it until they discover how to channel it for themselves.

When Jupiter makes its final entrance into Pisces on 29 December 2021 you could be aware that your ability to interpret dreams and visions is very much expanded. Hopefully you will be feeling far more confident about connecting to your Cosmic Guides as your trust in the information you receive via your Soul Self should be much improved.

PISCES PLANET NEPTUNE MOVING RETROGRADE

25 June Neptune moves Retrograde in Pisces Even though you cannot deny or interact with the harsher aspects of life, you will need to retreat from them on a regular basis. You are not escaping, merely making sure you remain immune from negativity and despair. Get plenty of rest and sleep as much as you can. Whenever possible be by water (especially the sea) because, as your element, it replenishes and revives you. By the time Neptune moves Direct in Pisces on 01 December, situations that have seemed crazy, chaotic and confusing could begin to be less so.

PLANETS IN PISCES

18 February Sun moves into Pisces This is a good time to surrender yourself to the guidance that flows to you through your dreams & visions. Sleep as much as you can and, as you may be feeling rather more sensitive and vulnerable than usual, it is vitally important for you to retreat from the harsher aspects of life whenever possible. You must have plenty of Me-time in which to create the healthy boundaries you need to complete your mission as a Cosmic Lightworker in service to the peoples of planet Earth.

25 February Venus moves into Pisces You may be feeling ultra romantic or sentimental but please try not to be unrealistic in your expectations of other people. They are just the same as always so don’t view them through rose-coloured lenses! Accept them as they are with all their human faults.

15 March Mercury moves into Pisces Most of your more enlightened ideas are likely to originate from your imagination and be inspired by dreams & visions. As they will probably be far more interesting and entertaining than ordinary life, you could get lost in them. Gazing out of the window when you are supposed to be concentrating on the task in hand could get you into trouble, in more ways than one! You may be feeling more sleepy than usual, so make sure you allow plenty of switch-off time.

PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR PISCES

Uranus in Taurus Pisceans are very fluid people. Nothing comes easier to them than adapting to whatever environment they find themselves in. Once they have recovered from the shock of sudden and unexpected change, they acclimatise to it and move on. Of all the 12 zodiac signs, Pisces is the one who has mastered the art of going with the flow. The current placement of evolutionary Uranus is bringing fundamental changes which will upset much of the population. As a Pisces, your natural ability to cope with the ebb and flow of shifting circumstances will be strengthened. Uranus could help you to come into your own and earn the respect of people who panic at the very thought of having to do things differently in future.

Pluto continues its slow journey through your complementary sign of Capricorn, reinforcing your resilience to outside influences that have a negative effect on you. Somehow you are stronger and more able to cope with challenge. Perhaps because you have learned to look to a higher authority for orders and instruction on how to manage your life. The rules, regulations, procedures and protocols of human society pale into insignificance beside the powerful Guidance that flows to you from spiritual sources. You of all the zodiac signs are best placed to channel this potent and beneficial force, both for yourself and on behalf of others.

PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR PISCES

The planetary giants Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius this year, which is likely to make the world a less intimate place. Personal needs and emotions will probably have to be put on hold while human society copes with huge shifts in its status quo. Change is the order of the day and many people will struggle to acclimatise to the chaos it creates in their daily lives. This will be a source of stress for you, not so much for yourself as a Pisces who is highly skilled in the art of adapting. But your empathetic nature will suffer with those who are suffering because they are unable to find a foothold in a rapidly changing landscape. You could feel concerned that they are not ready for a future which looks very different to what they are used to. You can help by demonstrating your ability to go with the flow and evolve through all the ups and downs that come your way.

Chiron & Eris in Aries these are longer term influences in your life which could be of benefit to you even if they give you a certain amount of grief!

Chiron the Wounded Healer is a familiar presence for you, as an Empath. The ability to sympathise with suffering comes very easily to you – sometimes too much so. Pisces often end up carrying pain that does not belong to them, because they have absorbed it from the atmosphere around them. The placement of Chiron in Aries could help by making it easier for you to isolate yourself from those who seek to exploit your pity for them.

Eris in Aries is a very different energy to your rather soft and ethereal nature. She is a feisty force of nature who declares war on anything or anyone who threatens her interests. She can teach you a thing or two about standing up for yourself in situations where your compassionate nature is being taken advantage of. Eris can also help you to confront your own lack of courage and confidence. She will urge you to assert yourself against your enemies instead of letting them victimise you.

PISCES LIFE PATH JOURNEY

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are at odds with your zodiac sign, which could be highlighting issues around which direction to take. You could be feeling confused about how to get your message across in ways that will be easy to understand. Yet you do not want to dumb down or compromise the complexity of what you have to say. Your faith will be tested by people who are not prepared to think for themselves. They prefer to shift the responsibility for their lives onto you as an Empath, channeler, medium or therapist instead of exercising the free will to determine their future. You may be tempted to offer them false hope, by telling them what they want to hear. It would be better to help them understand that their life is their own adventure. No one else can live it for them. Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.

NEW & FULL MOONS IN VIRGO & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN PISCES

27 February Full Moon in Virgo This is the perfect time to consolidate on the effort you have put in until now. You deserve to reap the rewards of your hard work. Give yourself credit for what you have achieved, even if the results appear relatively modest. All that matters is that you are satisfied with them.

13 March New Moon in Pisces If you want to manifest something, you have to start with a vision. This New Moon can help you to create the design or blueprint from which to build. You are sowing the seeds for something that at present is just a dream. But over time it will become reality.

07 September New Moon in Virgo This is a very good time to set your intentions on optimising the general efficiency, health and wellbeing of your daily life. Sow the seeds for practices which will help you stick to rhythms, routines, regimes and recipes that can enhance your everyday existence.

20 September Full Moon in Pisces There could be a sense that your vision has become reality, even if not quite in the way you imagined it would. All the same, you have proved to yourself that you are capable of turning dreams into reality.
