Virgo 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, Virgo, this may manifest a desire for overall self-improvement, to finally conquer that unhealthy habit, or to bring more freedom into your work / job.  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:  Until Dec 28 2021 Jupiter transits H6 of work, service, health & habits and overall self-improvement. This is a very busy period indeed. But you will achieve a lot. Just be wary of over doing it. As long as you maintain excellent health then this is a busy year in which you tackle many tasks, work-related, household chores and even one or two big projects. You’re on a roll. If you feel tired then you’ve either taken on too much, or you need to reassess your workload. You have the opportunity to be working in a job that you really enjoy this year. If you’re not enjoying your job, or your colleagues, then you’ll likely successfully apply for a different job. This is not a change of career but a step into a job that is more uplifting and energizing. Enjoyment in your daily life is key. Your colleagues will also note your enthusiasm and your reputation improves. You may receive a pay-rise, promotion, and award of some other such reward as recognition of your good work.  Though you’ll feel Jupiter’s luck throughout this transit, Jupiter biggest payoff generally comes near the end of his transit through a sign.  It’s worth the wait!

Your luck shifts May 13 - Jul 28 when Jupiter makes a brief visit to your house of partnerships, contracts and collaborations.  Jupiter returns to bless this area Dec 28 2021.

2021 LESSONS:  Until Mar 7 2023 Saturn transits H6 of work, service, health & habits, and overall self-improvement.  You got a brief taste of this transit Mar 21 - Jul 1 2020.  But, Saturn’s last visit was 29 years ago – 1991-1993.  Generally, this is the time to develop a strong work ethic.  I know, I know you’re one of the hardest workers of the zodiac, Virgo.  You’ll feel the extra weight of responsibility during this transit, though.  If you scatter or waste your energies, you won’t have enough, and your health may suffer.  If you try to compensate with an extra burst of energy, your health may suffer.  So, pay extra attention to your health lest you’ll be forced to take time off work through physical strain or illness, or feeling tired and disappointed. Balance is key. This pertains to household tasks and other chores as well. You need to take responsibility for cleaning, tidying, fixing, building, and general upkeep at home. You may have to ask for help, but you need to focus attention on what needs fixing in your house. If you have pets then you need to ensure that their health is shipshape. You may be servicing the needs of others, more than your own, but this is your time to search for a sense of purpose and joy in your daily routines.  At the end of this transit you’ll reap the benefits of your past hard work.  

After a 6-month transit through Aries, Mars finally moves on Jan 6.  It's time for Mars to energize the rest of the zodiac.  The financial bleeding stops Jan 6, Virgo.  Your sex life / desire also calms down.  The hostility, the conflict and the fires manifested by Mars' long transit through Aries will calm down, too.  Mars knocks on your front door Jul 29.  He'll spend his usual 6 weeks in each sign this year as he does not retrograde again until Fall of 2022. 

2021 LOVE is a good year for love and romance 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:

Jan 8 - Feb 1 while Venus transits your house of love; 
Jan 9 in particular when Venus trines Mars; 
Feb 25 - Mar 21 while Venus transits your house of partnerships;
Jul 12 when Venus and Mars meet up in loving Leo;
Jul 21 - Aug 15 while Venus transits your sign; and
Nov 5 - Mar 5 2022 when Venus, again, transits your house of love, retrogrades, meets up with Mars and they close dance through your love house until Mar 5 2022. 

Saturn, your love planet transits your house of work all year, so you may find love through your job, anyone connected to your employment i.e., a coworker or a client or an agent.  This same area is also where your luck is for most of 2021.

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:  You will require extra rest and to take better care of yourself during this time.  You may see the return of a former job or co-worker. 
May 29 - Jun 22 Gemini:  Expect the return of a former authority figure. You may revise your plans.  
Sept 27 - Oct 18 Libra:  Be extra vigilant in your spending. Keep a tight eye on your money. You may reconsider a recent purchase.  

Until Dec 25 2021 The South Node transits H4 / The North Node transits H10 of career, status, recognition and authority figures.  Another strong indication of an elevation of status.  Career status or your social status by way of marriage, or parenthood. You are destined to be propelled along the path to career success. Not necessarily in the form of public accolades and awards, but in a series of synchronistic steps that increase your expertise, satisfaction and sense of purpose. Destiny plays its hand in putting you in the right place at the right time so that you can be most effective in your chosen profession. Your professional contacts, particularly authority figures, can lend you a helping hand. If you’re dissatisfied with your profession, the Fates may play a hand in you changing direction. This is your opportunity to ensure that you’re on the right professional track and therefore enjoying the journey. Although you are riding a career wave, this is not about personal ego. You’re being asked to selflessly commit your expertise to a higher purpose.  Our Eclipses fall along the nodal axis:  

May 26 Total Lunar Eclipse Sagittarius: A home, family or property matter reach a climax.
Jun 10 Annular Solar Eclipse Gemini:  Ushers in a new social network, group event, or friend.
Nov 19 Partial Lunar Eclipse Taurus:   Concludes a long-distance, higher-ed, foreign or legal matter
Dec 4 Total Solar Eclipse Sagittarius: Ushers in a new home, family or property opportunity.

Mar 6 2019 – Apr 26 2026 Uranus transits H9 Uranus reveals areas that require change to help you grow beyond your limitations. When well aligned, you’ll enjoy the sudden surprises and revelations Uranus brings.  But, Uranus doesn’t recognize safety and security. A stressful alignment can be quite unsettling.  Thankfully, Uranus is very well aligned to your sign, Virgo. Your belief system is changing. Beliefs vary from the most basic edicts about yourself to the more profound spiritual beliefs.  Uranus brings opportunities, and possibly obligations, to challenge your beliefs to make sure they still hold true. If you’ve yearned to have children, believing you would enjoy parenthood, you could discover you’re more a freedom-loving individual than you realized and a family would be restrictive. If your beliefs no longer hold true, then it’s time to question what edicts can be discarded, and what new ones can be adopted. If you’re young, you may not have formed set beliefs yet, and this transit provides opportunities to make changes that help you explore. More mature Virgos may feel the need to break away from convention and explore meaning in life.  Uranus is progressive and has no use for convention.  You may break away from fundamental beliefs and become fascinated with an unorthodox group. You’re keen to push your boundaries intellectually. You may start or end a study course, travel unexpectedly, re-locate, or begin or end an association with a religious or spiritual association. You may travel unexpectedly. It’s important to allow this process of exploration to unfold. If you try to control the flow you could get stuck between a rock and a hard place. Your beliefs have changed and you know you cannot stay in your current situation, but moving into unfamiliar intellectual territory can be frightening.  You’d best think of yourself as an adventurer and enjoy the freedom and exhilaration of the journey into the unknown.

Feb 3 2012 - Mar 30 2025 Neptune transits H7 of contracts, agreements, collaborations, your most committed relationships.  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 raise us to great inspirational heights, and tests us to look beyond the superficial and find meaning in our lives. In this area, Neptune changes your attitude towards love and marriage subtle but irrefutable ways. Some Virgo made a commitment, or will before Neptune departs this sector.  Mostly, it is time for you to renew your faith and hope in the power of love. Whether you choose to live a solitary life, or one intimately connected to a significant other, you need to open your heart and find true love. This could be a long process as you need to find time to ponder past relationships, and release any pervading bitterness. Neptune’s subtle subconscious motivation empowers the bliss of love, but it also triggers a fear of abandonment and the pain of losing love. It’s time to transcend your personal relationship fears and reconnect with love.  You may dissolve expectations of your partner, your ex-lovers, your parents and society in general.  It is time to forgive the hurts and wrongdoings of your loved ones.  If you’re currently intimately involved with a partner then you may be changing the way you view your beloved in subtle ways. As you heal the past and emerge as seeking true love, then you either fall deeper in love with your partner, or perhaps the sorrowful realization dawns that your current partnership needs to be dissolved.  You need to say farewell to someone to create a void for true love to enter.  This also applies to any business partnership, or political alliance that you are involved with. You seek mergers that bring joy and meaning to your life, rather than those who might undermine your sense of self-worth. You may also discover a need to share your insights with other people. As a result you may explore the possibilities of becoming a counsellor, spiritual healer or teacher, or perhaps you consult such experts. Ultimately it’s time to discover the meaning of love, through love and partnership, or a stronger union with God, or your higher self, depending on your beliefs.  

Until Jan 20 2024 Pluto transits H5.  Pluto has highlighted in the area of creativity and fun since 2008.  Since then, you’ve reassessed, at a deep level, what it means to express your true self.  Perhaps you felt stifled and resisted your creative urges. Or, circumstances prevented you from enjoying life. Pluto brings submerged desires to the surface.  You’ll find yourself acting in ways that seem alien, wanting to explore areas that previously held no attraction. You may be secretly attracted to someone from your past, or someone who represents how you would truly like to be now. It’s time for a deeply-felt need for expression emerge. You could give birth to a child or an artistic project. I’ve witnessed many romantic liaisons emerge for Virgos since Pluto entered this area.  Some taboo.  Whatever the scenario your deepest desires will surface. You may as well embrace these possibilities. With Pluto, resistance is futile.  You’re being challenged to see the truth about what you need, and make the changes. The more you try, the more you’ll be challenged during this time.  It is time to face the facts that you have known for quite some time - you need more fun, more romance and creativity. You need inspiration and freedom from mundane matters. If not deep love, romance, then maybe you’ve always wanted to write, sing, dance, act, join a circus troupe or design your own business.
