Sagittarius 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 a 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 rules 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, Sage, this may manifest a change in your communications, your educational desires, your relationship to your siblings, or even a change of community / neighborhood and your casual friends.  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:  Dec 19 2020 - Dec 28 2021 Jupiter transits H3.  Your house of thinking, ideas, communications, community & commuting, siblings, neighbors, road-trips and your vehicle, and your daily activities / chores.  You’ll see the lighter side of life this year. Laughter abounds, so make the most of your sunny period and stretch your facial muscles - smile, laugh, watch comedy shows, and stand-up comedians, read witty novels.  Moreover, the time is ripe to write your own.  If you’ve longed to publish your works, 2020 could be your year. Jupiter rules your talents and your earned income.  Jupiter will enhance all your communications’ abilities. You also have some big decisions to make when it comes to your lifestyle, maybe moving from one way of life into a new one. This could be moving from one area to another, leaving one job for a different one, or beginning a course of study.  You may be planning a big event, a celebration involving immediate family, or carrying out a big marketing campaign at work. Whatever your resolution you can be assured that you’re in for a busy time. Papers, contracts, books, conversations, meetings and such figure largely, as you explore your options and make your choices. You may also decide to start a series of lessons, pursue some on the job training or delve into a new hobby. You may also enjoy exploring your neighborhood. A visit to a local church, temple or spiritual group may spark a whole new lease of life. On the other hand you may take up a role with a community group, helping to expand the membership. Decisions made may be of your own prompting, or you may receive some news that opens a new range of alternatives. This is your chance to make your preferences known, and follow through. As you make choices, you feel like a load has been taken off your mind, and you can move forward and feel excited. It’s important that you make your decisions ethically so that you’re truly free to move forward.  

Your luck shifts May 13 - Jul 28 when Jupiter departs the above-described sector for a brief visit your house of home and family.   Jupiter returns to this area Dec 28 2021.  

LESSONS:  Dec 17 2020 - Mar 7 2023 Saturn transits H3 of your thoughts, ideas, communications, community & commuting, siblings, neighbors, road-trips and  your vehicle, and your daily activities / chores. You’re likely concentrating on work-related communications.  This could due to a project that demands concentrated physical or mental effort, such as a research, writing, policy planning, building, sports or gym work, or because you have significant decisions to make. It’s also possible that past decisions are catching up with you, as you realize the consequences of verbal or written interactions in recent times. You’re also learning that sometime silence is golden and at others it’s detrimental. Or, you may be overburdened with chores. You may have to work for extended periods. It’s time to learn from past mistakes, learn new skills and honor your commitments. If you do this you have the mental discipline to honor your obligations and gain the respect of those around you. You’ll be more restricted in your social interactions with others.  You may have some tough choices to make in your professional and/or private life. Perhaps you are considering making an important promise to someone, such as marriage, or to have a child, or you’re deciding to end an association. Whatever the scenario, you’re reassessing options in one or more areas, and making firm resolutions. You would be wise keep your own counsel, rather than confide in anyone who’ll listen. It may feel like you are stifling your voice, but this could have future benefits.  Perhaps you could consult an expert to help you through this, however; it’s not the time to rush major decisions. Take your time, consider the consequences, plan your strategy and then state your case.  Saturn is in a supportive position to you, Sage and Saturn rewards patience and dedication, but you may not see the rewards until Saturn departs this area Mar 2023.   

After a 6-month transit through Aries, Mars finally moves on Jan 6.  I hope you made the most of Mars' long transit through your house of love, pleasure and creative self-expression. That part of your life calms down after Jan 6.  It's time for Mars to energize the rest of the zodiac.  The hostility, the conflict and the fires manifested by Mars' long transit through Aries will calm down, too.  Mars knocks on your front door Dec 14.  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:

Mar 21 - Apr 14 while Venus transits your house of love;
Apr 11 brings a beautiful new opportunity for love; 
May 8 - Jun 2 while Venus transits your house of partnerships;
Jul 12 when Venus meets up with Mars in Leo; and
Oct 7 - Nov 5 while Venus transits your sign, again.  

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 through Mar 12 as they continue into Aquarius.   

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

Jan 30 - Feb 21 Aquarius:  Expect communications and travel mishaps or revisions to same.
May 29 - Jun 22 Gemini:  Be extra vigilant in all your communications, with contractual matters and while driving.  Slow down!  You may see the return of a partner, or revise a contract.  
Sept 27 - Oct 18 Libra: Expect the return of a friend or an associate and / or reconsideration a cherished goal.  

May 5 2020 - Dec 25 2021 The South Node transits H1 / The North Node transits H7  your path is likely to be entwined with a mate. If you’re single you may meet someone who is part of your destiny. Everyone we meet is part of our destiny, but, the Fates are working – spinning, threading and cutting - ensure your path crosses with this person. This is so the two of you can fulfill your destiny and serve a higher purpose. This purpose could be changing each other’s lives, or a joint venture that changes the lives of others. During this period, and perhaps beyond, you have a mate to help you along the way. If you’re already married, or involved in a personal relationship with a significant partner then this year’s story is much the same. Your choices are likely to be influenced significantly, perhaps more strongly than usual by this person. Someone important is going to change the course of your life. This can be a very exciting and joyful union that gives you a renewed sense of love and purpose.  Our Eclipses fall along the nodal axis:

May 26 Total Lunar Eclipse Sagittarius: Concludes a deeply personal matter.
Jun 10 Annular Solar Eclipse Gemini:  Brings a new partnership, collaboration, agreement.
Nov 19 Partial Lunar Eclipse Taurus Concludes a job or self-improvement issue;
Dec 4 Total Solar Eclipse Sagittarius:  Brings a big new beginning. Happy New Year!  Especially for Dec 4 birthdays, or birthdays within 4 days of Dec 4. 

Mar 6 2019 – Apr 26 2026 Uranus transits H6 of work, employment, service, health & habits and overall self-improvement.  Uranus rules disclosure. He reveals the areas that you need to change. It is time to re-evaluate your job satisfaction. If you’re happy with your job then you may accept any changes that occur, as being for the best. Your workplace may change, colleagues may come and go.  If your salary varies it will be for the best, this year anyway.  If you believe you’re on the right path in your job then you’ll welcome the variations in your workaday world. If you’re dissatisfied then it’s time to make a move. You may be restless and unsure of what changes to make. If so, then you need to explore your options, maybe seek the advice of an expert. If you’ve been putting off decisions, you may decide to leave your work in order to take on a role as a parent, or to re-train for another profession. If you are generally happy with your overall career then it is still important that your everyday job is pleasurable. Change is going to happen, regardless. If you resist, Uranus will a decision.  It’s time to embrace a little excitement in your daily routine, particularly if you have been in a rut.  This transit may also manifest a change in your diet, your exercise program or help you put an end to some bad habits. This all can propel you into a happier lifestyle that may give you the confidence to take the initiative and apply for different jobs. You may also seek an alternative lifestyle this year, something a bit out of the ordinary. If you have always desired a change, a move to a different location or adopting a more environmentally friendly lifestyle then this is your year. “A change is as good as a holiday” as the old cliché goes.

Feb 3 2012 - Mar 30 2025 Neptune transits H4 of home, family, property, parental and nutrition matters. 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. Under the influence of Neptune we can soar to great inspirational heights. The test is to look beyond the superficial and find meaning in our lives. Sometime during this period you may live by the sea. (I moved to a beach condo when Neptune transited my H4, and it just so happened my street was “Neptune Square”.  Neptune is indeed magical.)  You may feel the need to escape because the foundations of your life may seem a bit unsure. A result of moving house, or your domestic situation has changed. For one reason or another, your housing situation is unclear and you considering where you belong. You may feel your home is no longer a haven, or you are not living in your abode as a result of external events. You need to find a place where you belong, both physically and emotionally. Family members may provide a safe haven while you gather your resources.  Have faith in your ability to provide a roof over your own head, as well as to feel comfortable in your own skin. You may be subtly aware of what is wrong in your domestic arrangements, but sheds light on what you would like to change. Imagine your ideal living arrangements. The possibilities are endless. As a result of your meanderings into different areas of interest you may develop compassion for those who are without homes or families. These thoughts may mysteriously open opportunities for you to work with the homeless, refugees, or adoption agencies. There is a purpose to this time, and you’re safe as long as you dwell in spiritual realms. You can also try to tune into the subtle energies that emanate from the earth. Try to be responsive to the sights, sounds and scents that surround you. See the beauty in the buildings, nature or people around you.  If you really dislike your surroundings perhaps you could decorate in softer shades, or employ an artist to paint a mural or perhaps invest in a musical instrument or some other such inspirational and soothing art form. You have a chance to test your sensitivity and belief in the elemental side of your surroundings, such as fairies and other such elfin creatures that are said to inhabit the earth. Or, spend time in a beautiful cathedral, breathe in the scent of polish and incense, gaze at the stain glass windows and sing praise for anything that is worthy in your life, and all that is good in you. Or, find an inspirational spot in nature and meditate on your home in the human race.  (Lucky Jupiter brings luck and expansion to your home and family towards the end of 2021 into 2022.) 

Until Jan 20 2024 Pluto transits H2. Peace can be deceptive. Sometimes it appears your life is peaceful, but you’re really just sweeping things under the proverbial carpet, keeping the peace by swallowing your own needs or biding your time until events or people force you to make the necessary changes. True peace comes when life is balanced, when you’re living true to yourself and are sincerely happy with your life choices. You respect others and assert your needs and wishes, and live your life with integrity. Powerful Pluto reveals your truth, shows your process very clearly.  If you’re living true to yourself, you’re inclined to reap benefits from Pluto.  However, if you’ve been dodging the truth then events or people will change.  Pluto has been transforming area of earned income, your talents, your values since 2008. On a positive note you could attract a windfall and face the challenge of how to manage your newfound wealth. This could occur when Jupiter lines up with Pluto, for instance.  So stay tuned to monthly forecasts. But, you’re most likely required to learn how to manage your existing finances differently. Pluto is forcing you to see the truth about the ways in which you handle your finances, to make the most of your income.  Whatever your monetary management skills, you are being challenged to re-evaluate. If you’re in arrears, this is the period to reduce your debt. You should also ensure your taxes and any other financial matters are all up to date. You may need to seek the help of an accountant or financial advisor and make sure you trust this person implicitly. You have the potential to invest in areas lucrative areas, but this is not the time to be risking large amounts of money in unworthy or dodgy schemes. It’s time to ensure that you’re solid in your personal value system, that your morals are intact, that your self-worth is strong and as a result that you enjoy greater abundance.  It’s time for you to gain a greater understanding of power and control in relation to your personal value systems and the way in which you handle money.
