Pisces 2021

The grand Jupiter-Saturn conjunction: Though I have separated the interpretation of Jupiter's and Saturn's transit through Aquarius in the text below, a Jupiter-Saturn conjunction manifests an unique energy.  As a whole we'll be challenged to abide by the current COVID restrictions on travelling and gathering with friends and family especially during the 2020 holiday period.  We'll feel this conjunction Dec 12 - Dec 30 2020. However, our restlessness, desire for freedom reverberates throughout 2021 when Jupiter and Saturn square Aquarius' ruler Uranus:

Jupiter-Uranus square:    
    JAN 13 – JAN 22 
Saturn-Uranus square:    
    FEB 6 - MAR 2;  
    JUN 1 - JUN 26; and 
    DEC 15 - DEC 24.

Aquarius / Uranus rule freedom, independence, rebellion, breaking the rules, thinking outside the box and progressive change.  Because this is occurring in Aquarius, our desire for freedom and independence will be extraordinary.  Aquarius also rules friends, groups and goals.  

Individually, we'll confront our own inhibitions and self-imposed restrictions that have held us back.  It's time to break free from these limitations, and to enlarge our scope.  We may desire to grow within the structure of restriction which still allows us to enlarge the area of life affected by this transit.  On the other hand, you'll feel these structures and restrictions are now insufferable.  You'll feel restless until you break free from them. Because this is occurring in Aquarius, our desire for freedom and independence will be extraordinary.  For you, Pisces, this may manifest a deeply personal, spiritual, psychological transformation.  But this change could come any any area of your life that you feel most restricted:  a change of job, a relocation, or other change in your home and family, or the breakup of a significant relationship.

2021 LUCK:  From Dec 19 2020 – Dec 28 2021 Jupiter transits H12 private matters and your past, secrets, spirituality, large bureaucratic organization i.e., IRS, DMV, hospitals, prisons, libraries, the corporate office.  Jupiter tells you about the opportunities and benefits that arise.  Good news, prospects and a sense of well-being are associated with Jupiter. The more you support others this year, the better off you’ll be.  You may be embroiled in some tricky situations, but you have the uncanny ability to rise above the scum and turn any situation into gold, as long as you honor others as well as yourself. Situations that arise this year could have ramifications for years to come, so you want them to be positive. It’s time to look after the needs of others, taking a positive and optimistic outlook on demands or changes that occur this year. You're more apt to work behind the scenes rather than taking on a public role, and you would be wise to refuse public accolades. It’s not that you don't deserve them, but it’s your turn to benefit privately from most matters. If you step into the public arena, you may seem grandiose or undeserving. This just happens to be a year when anything other than humility can backfire. You’re to learn everything you can from behind the scenes.  Sometimes from someone more experienced. This way you stand to benefit. Your good works won't go unnoticed, but it’s best if you’re not seen and do not attempt to take credit. You're more inclined to reap benefits from staying in the background, serving others.  It's possible that you spend time in an institution such as a hospital, clinic or museum, or working in such an institution. If you have an active public life, then you benefit greatly from extended periods of time spent in seclusion.  You have a great respect for ancient wisdom, the spiritual teachings of past civilizations. You may benefit from an astrology reading this year, helping you to understand underlying forces at work. Although you may suffer setbacks, these are followed by successful periods as the Angels are watching over you.

Your luck shifts May 13 - Jul 28 while Jupiter makes a brief visit to your sign, Pisces.  Get ready to spread your wings and fly.  Jupiter returns to your sign Dec 28 2021.  

2021 LESSONS:  Dec 17 2020 – Mar 7 2023 Saturn transits H12 private matters and your past, secrets, spirituality, large bureaucratic organization i.e., IRS, DMV, hospitals, prisons, libraries, the corporate office.  Timing is an important aspect of life. Saturn can support us when it comes to timing, being in the right place at the time right to take up a new venture, or hold off and shoulder our current responsibilities for a little longer.  Your needs come second to another who may be experiencing hardships.  Or, your needs come second to an event.  The way you cope with this depends on your own value system. If you have a strong personal, or spiritual, value system, then you’ll handle the demands with aplomb, even if you don't always find them easy. Nevertheless, it’s a testing time.  You’re required to put your own needs second to someone else's. Whether you’re looking after a relative or loved one, or working with downtrodden members of society. In some cases, it can be a loss of employment, or a loved one. Your situation may trigger memories, and deeply felt emotions from your past. If you had a poverty-stricken or traumatic childhood, you may battle with grief, guilt, and trepidation. Your lesson is to avoid adopting a victim-mentality. No one is to blame. If you can come to terms with your past then you can deal successfully with the current sorrow and angst. Success does not equate with career ambition, or material acquisition. It’s a moral victory. You’re battling the demons of your past, dealing with self-sacrifice in the present.  The key is to learn to develop emotional fortitude. For instance, you may be the main caretaker of a loved one who has fallen on hard times. This triggers memories of neglect in your childhood where you were forced to prematurely shoulder responsibility. Know that you need to focus on this area now to bring understanding to it, so you can move past it.  Perhaps you’re realizing the importance of support during childhood.  How affected you were by a lack of support.  As you come to terms with the differences between the past and the present, you realize that as a child you were powerless, but now you have many resources on hand. You can ask for help from friend and family, organize community-based services to assist and offer love and support to your loved one. Gradually you realize that, as difficult as this situation may be, it’s not the same as the past. You may even see this year as one in which you faced significant fears, learned a profound lesson, grew in strength and faith, and gained from an experience that cannot be measured in material terms.

After a 6-month transit through Aries, Mars finally moves on Jan 6.  Your efforts towards earning money and your spending calm down after Jan 6, Pisces.  The hostility, the conflict and the fires manifested by Mars' long transit through Aries will calm down, too.  Mars knocks on your front door Apr 14 2022.  He'll spend his usual 6 weeks in each sign this year as he does not retrograde again until Fall of 2022. 

2021 LOVE: 2021 a good year for love and romance for all as Venus and Mars meet up in loving Leo Jul 12 and again Feb 14 2022 when they travel together for an extended time in commitment-minded Capricorn.  Your most favorable periods for love are:

Feb 25 - Mar 21 while Venus transits your sign, where she's exalted;
Jun 2 - Jun 26 while Venus transits your house of love;
Jul 9 brings you a new opportunity for love; 
Jul 12 when Venus hooks up with Mars in loving Leo; and
Jul 21 - Aug 15 while Venus transits your house of partnerships.

Venus stations retrograde in Capricorn Dec 19 - Jan 28 meaning she has an extended stay in Capricorn. She stops in a tight conjunction to powerful Pluto before retrograding over Pluto.  This is likely to manifest some serious drama in our lives for a few days.  Venus rules love, beauty, kindness and harmony; Venus retrograde manifests the opposite of those energies and Pluto can be ruthless.  HOWEVER, Venus slows down and retrogrades so Mars can catch up to her Feb 14 2022, and they close dance through commitment-minded Capricorn until Mar 5 2022 and remain in a tight conjunction as they enter Aquarius until Mar 12 2022.  

Mercury Retrogrades 3 times in 2021 in the Air signs:  Aquarius, Gemini and Libra:

Jan 30 - Feb 21 Aquarius:  Expect to keep your thoughts and communications to yourself.  A matter from you past remains on your mind for the duration.  
May 29 - Jun 22 Gemini:  Expect the return of a family member, or to return home.
Sept 27 - Oct 18 Libra:  It's time to create a spending budget.  You may return a recent purchase.  

May 5 2020 - Dec 25 2021 The South Node transits H10 / The North Node transits H4 of home, family and property matters.  Destiny plays its hand in your home and family. Changes may occur in this area, or you’ll connect with others who are fated to become part of your life in a deeply personal way. Family members may come and go, and you may feel these changes at a deep personal level. You’re on a journey to discover sense of belonging, not just to any home or place, but belonging in the bigger sense. Where do you truly belong? Where do you feel safe? Where do you want to put down roots or do you want to be like tumbleweed roaming the earth with no physical abode, but with a strong spiritual connection? Events and people are destined to help you find the answers.  The Eclipses fall along the nodal axis:

May 26 Total Lunar Eclipse Sagittarius: Your career, status come to the forefront.  A parent or other authority figure may feature.  
Jun 10 Annular Solar Eclipse Gemini:  Ushers in a new home / family matter.  
Nov 19 Partial Lunar Eclipse Taurus: Concludes a communications matter, course of study, trip or vehicle matter.  A sibling, neighbor or community event may feature. 
Dec 4 Total Solar Eclipse Sagittarius: Ushers in a new direction, new career, or status.  
Mar 6 2019 – Apr 26 2026 Uranus transits H3 of communications, thoughts, ideas, community, siblings, short trips, your vehicle. So expect some changes in these area.  Thankfully, Uranus is in a supportive position to you, Pisces.  When well aligned, unpredictable Uranus brings pleasant surprises.  However, Uranus doesn't recognize safety and security. Its task is to help you to grow beyond your limitations. Uranus is challenging you to break away from your comfortable belief system and keep an open mind. Open your mind to new possibilities. You may do this through a sudden opportunity to attend a conference, training course or study at an academic institution. Or, you meet someone who is outside of your usual social circle, a true meeting of the minds, but at the same time someone who challenges your opinions. Your focus may be more mental than emotional, and this person is not necessarily a love interest. You'll probably be thrust into a new neighborhood, or social circle this year, one that challenges you to see the world differently. This is your opportunity to freshen up your ideas and gain a new outlook on life. You may make decisions that change your lifestyle. You may decide to move away from your neighborhood to one that more reflects your true nature. If you resist the learning process you may feel restless, worried and anxious. You may turn down opportunities, delay making decisions and generally resist change. However, it’s time to take a few risks in the way that you view your world. If you keep an open mind and explore new possibilities, you may be amazed at the results. Don't limit yourself to previously held beliefs. If you've always wanted to learn about astrology, become an electrician's apprentice, learn about computers, or join an environmental group then do it.  If you have dreamed of writing an original piece of work, create time and space this year. You may choose to remain anonymous if your work seems too personal and revealing. Even if your creative activities are not long-term prospects, they are certain to be catalysts until you see the next signpost along your life path. So, get started and watch out for those signposts because they can jump out at you when you least expect it, Enjoy the challenge.  

Until Mar 30 2025 Neptune transits H1 of self. Your ruler Neptune represents all that is ethereal in our world, and challenges us to develop qualities such as faith, hope and love even in the face of adversity. Neptune can lift us to great inspirational heights. Your test is to look beyond the superficial and find meaning in your life.  To see yourself in a clear and loving light, and make necessary adjustments to ensure you are living a fulfilled life.  This can be enlightening, uplifting or an uncomfortable comprehension of a few home truths. You may undergo a gradual process of change because you need to. Maybe you’ve fallen into some lazy habits, relying on others or taking the easy way out. You need to open up to all of the possibilities in front of you, and choose the most positive and appealing course of action. It won’t be the easiest option, but the one that helps you grow in love and strength. Look beyond the physical and develop your emotional and spiritual muscles. Though you may need to shed a few pounds, start a new exercise program, and develop a new sense of style. More importantly, you need make sure that you are improving your spiritual self. Living according your personal principles; surrounding yourself with inspirational friends, colleagues and mentors; expressing yourself in a loving compassionate manner. You deserve the very best. Dream a little. Be willing to stare down a few fears. You need to face the reality of a situation before you can step into the realm of possibilities. It’s time to honor yourself, and to follow your own dreams. If you have wandered off track, then set off again in the right direction. You may have to say farewell to some aspects of your life, and you may not experience instant results, but you will feel better for knowing that you are not depending on others for your sense of reality, or to help you live your life. This is your life, your happiness and your wellbeing. Now you can find creative ways of following your own dreams.

Until Jan 20 2024 Pluto transits H11. During this very long transit, Pluto highlights your hopes, dreams and wishes. You are reassessing your aspirations, exploring options and stepping out of your comfort zone.  By way of a change of friendships, or a new social circle or a new relationship that offers you social opportunities. You’re open to new ideas and are stepping away from past interests, unless they still hold a spark. Old friends may have difficulty adjusting to the new you. At first you may be tempted to argue and battle for your friends' approval, but it’s best to let go of expectations and form new bonds. Pluto strips away self-deceit and forces us to face the truth. If your friends are true, they’ll come around. You’re also challenged to reassess your own role in certain friendships. By the end of Pluto’s transit, this area of life will be completely transformed.  Pluto creates a void you can fill with relationships and associations that have the right balance of give and take. Relationships that do not drain you, but rather support you and your aspirations. You may explore different interests, join a special interest group, take up a pastime or hobby that invigorated you in the past, or something that sparks your passion right now. Find your personal power to follow your own truth, to strike out on your own, to stand up for your own aspirations and to follow your heart. Dreams do come true and the exciting news is that, after a bit of soul-searching, you can find the courage to climb your personal mountain.
