Astrology predictions 2021: an astrologer on what to expect
As much as the end of a year and the start of a new one tend to inspire a sense of hope (as it should), this doesn’t necessarily means that the chaos of the past year will turn into a pumpkin when the clock strikes midnight.
Scroll on to find out exactly what’s written in the stars for 2021 (and how to deal with it all).
January / February: Mercury retrograde
Make sure you are aware of your emails, texts and more, to avoid exacerbating any misunderstandings that may arise during this time.
February / June / December: a rare Saturn-Uranus square
Here’s where things start to get really interesting. According to Fox, the months of February, June and December should all have a rare Saturn-Uranus square. A square is when two planets are 90 degrees apart, and this essentially causes some sort of cosmic “power struggle” when they clash. In the case of Saturn and Uranus, their last square was in 1999-2000, and in 2021, this particular square is particularly important for world politics.
“Every time [in February, June and December], Saturn in Aquarius urges us to stick with what we know, while Uranus in Taurus demands large-scale structural change, ”says Fox.
“Geopolitically and personally, the events of February, June and December are expected to reverberate for longer than we can predict at the time.”
Usually when squares do occur we are inclined to get into a mess, swinging between extremes and struggling to reconcile two very different mindsets (i.e. Saturn wanting to stick with what has been tried). and true, while Uranus wants to demolish everything). Generally speaking, now is not a great time to make major life-changing decisions, but sometimes when planets lock in this way, it can force a major breakthrough.
So if you notice a feeling of déjà vu in February, June and December … Saturn and Uranus may have something to do with it!
May / July: passage of Jupiter through Pisces, lunar eclipse, solar eclipse and retrograde of Mercury
“Jupiter in Aquarius has focused us relentlessly on social reform, group goals and the necessary ‘we’re all in the same boat’ vision of a society facing a global crisis,” she said. SHE.
“However, when Jupiter transforms into Pisces, we can begin to understand how much intuitive, heart-centered and compassionate vision is needed if we are to recover our health, our economies, and our own disrupted lives. When Jupiter returns, retrograde in Aquarius, we may have to revisit some of the milestones in 2020 for a while. ”
According to Fox, the combination of Jupiter’s three-month retrograde and the three Saturn-Uranus squares runs particularly deep, making 2021 often feel like “we’ve been here before,” and increasingly challenge the status quo. , with all its advantages and all its faults.
A May 26 lunar eclipse – the first of four 2021 eclipses – as well as the June 10 solar eclipse, build on this and could have a big impact on the global media sphere.
“The late May lunar eclipse in Sagittarius and the early June solar eclipse in Gemini reflect the interplay between ‘truth’ or wisdom and quick facts, and reminds us that no amount of misinformation, misinformation, media manipulation or hyperbole cannot obscure the essential truths of life, ”says Fox.
She continues: “The events around this eclipse may highlight the problems that can arise if we believe everything we read in the media, or, conversely, if the media is too tightly controlled and freedom of speech. press is restricted. “
This is because the ruling planet of Gemini is Mercury (if you have Gemini locations in your chart … hold this with your head held high). Thanks to the ultra-cheeky nature of Gemini, we’re more likely to see this retrograde Mercury causing a “Case of the Ex”. That’s right, expect former lovers to come out of the woods, ex-friends hinting at becoming “something more” again, and potentially even being the ex reaching out for a booty appeal.
Either way, here’s our advice: Be clear about the limits, proceed with caution, and use protections.
June to October: Jupiter retrograde in Pisces and Aquarius
As we mentioned earlier, Jupiter’s three-month Aquarius cruise might require us to revisit some of the 2020 themes, which, let’s be honest, isn’t exactly what we had on our 2021 wishlist. Nonetheless, it is important.
If 2020 was the year the world turned upside down (anyone who hears the Hamilton currently?), 2021 will be the year we begin the long process of overhauling our values, goals and mission as individuals and as a society, which you know takes time, especially in the midst of an ongoing pandemic.
Most of the tension will take place when Jupiter retrogrades in Aquarius from July 28 to October 18. A deeply philosophical and spiritual planet, you can expect a greater sense of introspection and learning during this time. Additionally, Jupiter governs our desire to explore the world and our curiosity for the path less traveled, but during a downshift unexpected things happen in these areas, so any trip or travel plan may require a particular attention.
September / October: Mercury retrograde in Libra
Rejoice! We have reached Mercury’s last retrograde of 2021. Scheduled for regular planetary programming from September 27 to October 18, this particular retrograde occurs in Libra, overlaps Jupiter’s back boogie, and will generally be, uh, interesting.
Oh, and all the other backsliding jazz … you know how it goes!
November: lunar eclipse in Taurus
According to Fox, a lunar eclipse on November 18 and 19 will be particularly significant as its impact will continue into the New Year.
“The lunar eclipse in Taurus at the end of November is the first lunar eclipse in this zodiac sign since 2004 and begins a new cycle of eclipses on the Taurus-Scorpio axis that will continue until 2022,” she says.
“Here, the lessons focus on our practical daily needs such as food, water and safe shelter, versus our sometimes obsessive pursuit of more abstract desires.”
As for what all this means?
“It’s about clarifying priorities. No amount of navel-gazing will solve hunger, disease, poverty or environmental damage, so this eclipse highlights the need for practical action on the ground. surprises at this time can show us more consequences than we can expect if we allow large parts of the world to live in misery, pollution or corruption, ”she adds.
December: Jupiter returns in Pisces and a solar eclipse in Sagittarius
If you got this far and thought, “Uh, 2021 really doesn’t sound better than 2020? We are inclined to agree. That said, Fox predicts that December will be a pivotal phase for hope amid “uncertain times,” when Jupiter returns to Pisces, and we will see the last eclipse of the year.
“It may only be when Jupiter returns to Pisces, in the last days of the year, that we will feel some light at the end of the tunnel. It is likely that the year 2021 will begin to begin. fade and a sense of idealism will prevail, with perhaps a strengthening of compassion and goodwill towards our fellow citizens of the earth, ”she said.
“A belief in kindness and mutual trust can be very healing, but Jupiter is as always prone to excess, so this change in zodiac sign could also, in the longer run, lead to a religious uprising of some sort. so generalization would undermine the idealism that precedes it. Indeed, the early December solar eclipse in Sagittarius reminds us that ideology and fanaticism can still be dangerous while the world remains in times of uncertainty. “
A lot to think about.
