To say that 2021 is destined to be a big year is an understatement and astrologically speaking it is the biggest year in decades. Six decades to be exact because that was the last time that you had Saturn and Jupiter, the two most powerful planets in Aquarius at the same time. Even if it was just Saturn or just Jupiter this would be the most important year in a decade but to have both this makes this your biggest year in decades if not a lifetime. It is not just having Saturn and Jupiter, the two most powerful planets in Aquarius at the same time that makes this a powerful year but why they are here. Saturn has returned to begin a new three decade long Saturn cycle and he will spend until 2023 helping you lay down the foundations for the future. Jupiter, on the other hand, has returned to begin a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion.
To begin either a new Saturn or Jupiter cycle would make this a year for major new beginnings but again, to have both happen at the same time is a chance for a major reset and the start of a major new life chapter. Saturn is playing a long game and over the next three years will help you lay down the foundations for the future while Jupiter is here to create opportunities and as many new pathways as possible. Jupiter is also racing ahead and while he will normally spend 12 months here, he will race through the full length of Aquarius in five months and regardless of when your birthday is, by the time he leaves on 14th May will have aligned with your Sun. At some point in the first four and a half months of 2021, you will experience one of the luckiest transits in a decade, making this the luckiest and most expansive point of the year.
Jupiter will leave and join up with Neptune in your income sector from 14th May to 29th July, bringing the planets of luck and dreams together here for the first time in our lifetime. Jupiter will return again on 29th December and in all, over the course of 2021 and 2022 will return to your income sector three times. Jupiter will return to Aquarius from 29th July to 29th December, with a chance to finish what he began in the first part of the year. After having Saturn in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019, as they wrapped up your old Saturn and Jupiter cycles, when they left and returned to Aquarius in the closing weeks of 2020 this changed everything. In addition, this is going to be a fast and vibrant year across every aspect of your life.
The love and relationship gods have dialled up the right mix of influences this year and with the right amount of focus on each. While your romantic sector is active all year your relationship sector is only active for a few months and had it been the other way round it would be a very different story. Not that the focus on romantic and relationship matters is any less important or significant but with Saturn in Aquarius all year and Jupiter for the majority of the year, to have continuous planetary activity on the opposite side of the sky in your relationship sector would have created constant conflict. As it is, with Jupiter retrograding back out of Aquarius on 14th May and Mars not returning to your relationship sector until 12th June they will avoid a clash all together.
The planets moving through will still clash with Saturn, but in retrograde motion from 23rd May to 11th October this is the safest point of the year to put the focus on your relationships. Before you get to this point there is a lot happening on the romantic front, over and above having the North Node in your romantic sector all year. It begins with Mars’ return on 4th March, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos making his first visit to your romantic sector since 2019. Until he leaves on 24th April, Mars will fire up your romantic passions and fighting spirit while creating a path for the other planets to follow.
Mercury will return to your romantic sector on 4th May but a retrograde turn will keep him here until 12th July and it is during that time that the Sun and Venus, the planet of love will move through. The two most romantically charged chapters of 2021 will be when Mars moves through from 4th March to 24th April and then again when Venus moves through, from 9th May to 3rd June. It will be Mars who gets things moving on the relationship front with his return to your relationship sector from 12th June to 28th July. This time the faster moving planets will catch up and move through at the same time with Venus returning on 28th June, the Sun on 23rd July and Mercury on 28th July. The Sun’s departure on 23rd August will end all planetary activity on the relationship front.
To begin with, it is business as usual on both sides of the financial fence. For you, business as usual means no planetary activity in your financial sector, where the focus is on what you do with and how you manage the money you have until the second half of the year and then for a limited time, but Neptune keeping the wheels turning on the income front. Neptune, the planet of dreams and fantasies has been in your income sector since 2012 and until he leaves in 2026 his job is to ensure that when the faster moving planets move through they have a dream to work with and after they leave to keep the dream alive. Always spending from June to November in retrograde motion, Neptune is still in his early weeks in direct motion at the start of the year.
Because the Sun will always return to your income sector in February and that is when Neptune becomes part of an active team, January is a month for getting your bearings. This year you also begin the year with the dwarf planet Ceres in your income sector, as she has been for much of 2020. Ceres’ job has been to update your income needs and priorities until she leaves on 21st February. This is just two days after the Sun returns on 19th February to begin what are usually the most lucrative months of any year. That period will run from the Sun’s return on 19th February to Mercury’s departure on 4th April with Venus, the planet of money moving through during that time.
Once Mercury leaves, Neptune will be back on his own and will keep the wheels turning for the rest of the year. This will bring to an end what are usually the most lucrative months of any year but this year the money gods have a wildcard up their sleeves with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion making an early return to your income sector on 14th May. This is the first time in our lifetime that Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams have met up here and this is the start of a long relationship. Jupiter will return on 14th May, leave on 29th July and return again on 29th December but will also do the same next year. This suggests a whole new lucrative well to tap into. Meanwhile, the faster moving planets will move through your financial sector from 22nd July to 23rd September, with a chance to focus on your financial situation and money matters while Jupiter is gone.
There is no continuous planetary activity on either the job or career fronts this year but with Mars visiting both your work and career sectors for the first time in two years, each gets a little more juice than would normally be the case. In addition, a combination of Mercury’s retrograde turn and Mars’ involvement will increase the size of the footprint that job and career matters will have on the year itself. This will be felt first on the job front where, while the Sun’s return to your work sector on 21st June will always turn the solar spotlight onto work and job matters at this time each year, Mars will kick things off two months earlier with his return on 24th April. This is where Mercury’s retrograde turn comes in, for as well as keeping him in your work sector for over two months instead of the 14 to 15 days he would normally spend here, his return on 4th May means he will arrive while Mars is still here.
By the time Mars leaves on 12th June, Venus racing ahead and fast catching up will return on 3rd June, weeks ahead of the Sun. By the time the Sun will eventually end all planetary activity on the job front on 22nd July, there will have been continuous planetary activity for nearly three months when in some years this can be over in as little as five weeks. This will also shorten the gap between the end of all planetary activity on the job front for the year and the start of all planetary activity on the career front. Even though three months separate the Sun’s departure from your work sector and return to your career sector, Venus’ return on 11th September will close that gap to just over seven weeks.
Once again, because of Venus’ early return and the fact that Mars will visit your career sector this year as well, what begins with her return on 11th September won’t run its course until he leaves on 13th December. Once again, this is another three month period of activity when in most years it can be over in as little as five weeks. In all, in six out of the 12 months of 2021, there will be planetary activity in either your work or career sectors, with short gaps between the different chapters. What makes this even more auspicious is that Jupiter will join Neptune in your income sector on 14th May, bringing the planets of luck and dreams together for the first time here in our lifetime, creating a huge amount of income potential.
As the planets move through the heavens in their individual orbits they form angles to the positions that the planets occupied at the time of your birth. This report interprets the way these planetary movements affect you as an individual, and explains how they influence your relationships, your work, your moods, and every aspect of your life. It will also provide guidance as to how you can make the most of opportunities when they arise, as well as helping you to maximize your strengths, and minimize your weaknesses.
