Virtual Third Thursday: Solstice
Celebrate the shortest day and the longest night in the Northern Hemisphere: winter solstice!
Your 2021 horoscope and a celestial reading by Earthling Astrology.
Aries: March 21st to April 21st
Archetypes: The Warrior, The Hero’s Journey
Planetary Ruler: Mars
Symbol: The Ram
Mars, your planetary ruler, will leave your sign right at the beginning of 2021, on January 6th. Mars spent a record SIX MONTHS in Aries in 2020! This should leave you feeling very energized at the start of the year. You may feel ready to take some ACTION! As the collective navigates major changes, we will need your natural enthusiastic attitude towards new adventures to help us usher in 2021.
Aries season officially starts on March 20th, 2021, which is the date of the Spring Equinox. Two days later, Venus enters Aries to make LOVE the theme of springtime. You should be feeling extra attractive, love-y and romantic during your birthday month. Your communication skills are enhanced around your birthday as well. Watch for the tendency to argue over superficial matters. Channel any excess mental energy through movement of your body. If you have any inclination to learn another language, March is a great month to sign up for language lessons!
Use the energy of Aries New Moon on April 11th to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 9:30pm CST. The New Moon is the BEST time to plant seeds for adventures, dreams or projects you want to accomplish.
On April 23, your friend Mars dips his red-hot toes into the waters of Cancer. Things can get emotional or you may feel extra sensitive or triggered. This energy may last around six weeks until Mars moves into Leo, a fellow fire sign.
Summer is full of energy for you so get out in the sun and socialize as much as possible! A little bit of drama is indicated right around the 4th of July so keep your cool and retreat to burn off steam if necessary.
The Full Moon is in Aries on October 20th, 2021. The Full Moon is the time to be intentional of letting things go that no longer serve you. What needs release in your life this Fall? Use the energy of the Full Moon to help you let go of anything that may be bringing you down including negative thoughts, negative situations or even negative people who do not hold your highest good in their hearts.
All of 2021, a planetary body named Chiron will be traveling through your sign. Chiron also made a visit to Aries during the “roaring 1920’s” and the “psychedelic 1970’s.” Chiron is nicknamed “The Wounded Healer,” and often brings up things hidden or buried deep in our unconscious to the surface for healing. As Aries is the sign of identity, you may find yourself acting or behaving out of the “norm.” This is intentional! You are not usually one to “should” yourself. However, you may find yourself reflecting on your life this year to see if you’ve been stuffing yourself into other people’s boxes of how you “should” be or what you “should” do. You may just find yourself coming to terms with who you REALLY are and connecting deeply with the divine spark within you. Aries is the sign that sprung us ALL to life! Be sure to BE YOU in 2021 and find your confidence in expressing your true nature.

Taurus: April 21st to May 21st
Taurus Element: Earth
Archetypes: The Builder, The Banker, The Collector, The Gardener
Planetary Ruler: Venus
Symbol: The Bull
Mars, the planet of action, will move into your sign on January 6th. You could feel a surge of energy right after the New Year. Venus, your planetary ruler, will head into Capricorn right after this event on January 8th. This brings some seriousness to your demeanor and you may feel like there is just too much work to be done as the collective navigates some major changes. If there is anyone that can get a job done, it’s you! Go easy on yourself. It will take some work to rebuild after new changes usher us into 2021. We will need your determined and dependable nature to keep us grounded as we begin the new year. Also, know that Venus will ensure all your hard work in 2020 will be rewarded in 2021.
February is especially energetic for you and expect a red-hot Valentine’s Day if that is your jam! If you are feeling spazzed out or extra frenetic, know that it is a temporary feeling and it should dissipate by early March.
Use the energy of Taurus New Moon on May 11th to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 1:58pm CST. The New Moon is the BEST time to plant seeds for money matters, home projects, or dreams you want to accomplish.
Summer could thrust you into the spotlight in some way. This is not a bad thing! Enjoy the extra attention and compliments if they come your way. It’s an amazing time to reconnect with friends and loved ones you haven’t seen in ages.
The Full Moon is in Taurus on November 19th, 2021, which is also a partial eclipse! The Full Moon is the time to be intentional of letting things go that no longer serve you. What needs release in your life this Fall? Taurus is the sign that can feel “stuck” the most. Use the energy of the Full Moon to help you let go of anything that may be bringing you down including too much “stuff”, negative situations or even negative people who do not have your highest good in their hearts.
All of 2021, the planet Uranus will continue traveling through Taurus. This planet can make us all a little uncomfortable! Taurus is not a sign that normally loves change, but Uranus will make sure any changes that you need to make, happen. Uranus is associated with “awakening” energy and we are (theoretically) in an awakening period on planet Earth. Follow your intuition to make some wild changes, if you feel called. If you are feeling stuck, Uranus will also provide you with plenty of synchronicities and zany “coincidences” to course correct you. If you are feeling extra wound up, be sure to practice grounding exercises to get back in your body.

Gemini: May 21st to June 21st
Gemini Element: Air
Archetypes: The Questioner, The Thinker, The Jester, The Messenger
Planetary Ruler: Mercury
Symbol: The Twins
Last year, no matter what it threw at you, was life changing. You likely incorporated new information into your being and made contacts that will enhance your life for years to come. 2021 will continue to bring life changing happenings, no matter how big or small! The “North Node” of the Moon will travel through your sign all of 2021. It started its journey through Gemini back in May of 2020. The “North Node” represents our soul path and the way forward. Keep moving towards your goals, aspirations and desires. You’ve got all the cosmic help in 2021 to make them happen!
Mercury is your planetary ruler and goes retrograde a handful of times a year. You are more affected by Mercury retrograde than your friends (unless you happened to be born during Mercury retrograde). Mercury rules all things having to do with communication so be sure to back up your data, proofread a little bit extra and double check plans during the retrograde periods. The first Mercury retrograde of the year begins on January 30th and ends on February 20th.
Use the energy of Gemini New Moon, which is a Solar Eclipse, on June 10th to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. Eclipses bring “wild card” energy to the planet and also represent beginnings & endings. A door may close in your life as another one opens. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 5:53am CST. The New Moon is the best time to plant seeds for new ideas, communication projects, or dreams you want to accomplish! Mercury will be retrograde during the New Moon Eclipse. This means that the intentions must come from somewhere inside of YOU and nothing will manifest if it’s not something you truly want. This second Mercury retrograde period of 2021 will occur between May 29th and June 22nd.
Summer is a great time for your 1-on-1 relationships, romantic or otherwise. It’s possible a little shadow work could come up for you. We all have a shadow! You may have a harder time than most handling yours as each “twin” of the Gemini archetype has a hard time communicating with the other one. Be gentle with yourself. Remember that both good feelings and bad feelings don’t last forever. And feelings are just feelings, there is no need to judge them.
Autumn brings another round of Mercury retrograde. Mark your calendars right after back to school. The third retrograde of 2021 is from September 26th through October 18th.
The Full Moon is in Gemini on December 18th, 2021. The Full Moon is the time to be intentional of letting things go that no longer serve you. What do you need to let go of? Gemini is the sign that can get sucked into the thinking realm and you may feel like there is no escape! Use the energy of the Full Moon to help you let go of anything that may be bringing you down including too much time in your head, negative thinking or even negative people who do not have your highest good in their hearts.
The end of the year is all about wrapping up unfinished business and continuing to build upon all the information you’ve learned since May of 2020. Your ideas and originality will help us all move through the changes that 2021 will bring!

Planetary Ruler: The Moon
Symbol: The Crab
Last year, no matter what it threw at you, was life changing. There was a LOT of tough energy moving through the sign of Capricorn, which is your mirror/polar opposite sign. Perhaps life in 2020 felt a little “out of reach” and definitely out of control. As a Cancer, you are intricately connected to the lunar energies. You get a big break in 2021! There are NO Full Moons in Cancer during the entire year. If you have heard the lore, things get a little bit hectic during a Full Moon. You can expect a less emotionally hectic 2021. If you feel called, look up the moon phase at your birth. Note if you feel differently during this phase each month.
On April 23, 2021, the planet Mars will enter your sign. You probably don’t love the “god of war” traveling through your home. Watch your irritability level and reactive tendencies. Mars will be visiting until June 11. During this 6-week period, it is a great time to release any anger you may have toward a situation, person or event. Your anger could show up as sadness, especially if Mars was in Cancer when you were born. Baths with Epsom or Himalayan salts are great for you to de-stress.
While you won’t experience a Full Moon in your sign, we will have a New Moon in Cancer on July 9, 2021. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 8:15pm CST. The New Moon each month is the time to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. This is the best time to (literally) plant seeds, start home & family projects, or visualize dreams you want to accomplish! Do you want your hair or nails to grow faster? Try cutting them on a New Moon!
Pluto, nicknamed the “lord of the underworld,” will stick around in your opposite sign of Capricorn all of 2021. Pluto represents transformation, purging and re-birth. You may witness a lot of your external environment going through a “rebirth” in 2021. Let the changes happen. Do your best to ground your emotions as you can be prone to getting lost in emotional tsunamis. Your caring, nurturing and giving nature is what we’ll all need to help us usher in a New Age!

Leo: July 21st to August 21st
Leo Element: Fire
Archetypes: The Leader, The Entertainer, The Creator
Planetary Ruler: The Sun
Symbol: The Lion
The sign of Leo is the only signed “ruled” by a star – the Sun! We’ll need your natural charm, brightness and leadership skills to navigate the collective changes coming for us all in 2021. The first Full Moon of the year will fall on your sign on January 28th. The Full Moon is the best time to let go of what is no longer serving us. Perhaps the energy of 2020 is now outdated and it’s time to LET IT GO! Use the energy of the Full Moon at the end of January to let go of any drama that has followed you into the New Year. This Full Moon could kick up some drama in your life so be sure to navigate the energy with grace and compassion.
Your mirror sign, Aquarius, has a LOT going on in 2021. You may be called to action as new changes, innovations and technological revolutions take place. You have an amazing ability to make people feel warm and loved and try not to lose sight of this. Leos are the salespeople of the zodiac and don’t be surprised if you may have to “sell” some enthusiasm to those around you.
At the end of April and into May, the Sun will buzz past the planet Uranus in the sky. Uranus sometimes presents challenges but is always associated with “awakening” energy. If you’ve been asleep to something happening in your life, you may suddenly see it loud and clear right in front of you. Always remember that everything happens FOR you and not TO you. During this time, you may feel the urge to make a wild change in your life. Always trust your intuition!
Summer brings fun & romantic energy into your life. The planet Mars will enter Leo on June 11th. Venus will follow Mars into Leo on June 26th. If you need to bring some new life into your relationship, summer is the time to do it. If you are single, it’s possible that potential partners (or exes) may come out of the woodwork in June. You should be feeling extra passionate, energetic and attractive this summer.
Use the energy of Leo “Lion’s Gate” New Moon on August 8th to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 8:51am CST. The New Moon is the best time to plant seeds for new ideas, creative projects, or dreams you want to accomplish!
This fall, the planet Jupiter could bring a resolution or the completion of something that started 6 years ago. Jupiter is the biggest planet in the solar system and expands whatever he touches. Trust that any events this fall are happening for your highest good and abundance. The end of the year brings anchoring and grounding energy. It’s possible a new career direction could present itself. If you have ever wanted to start your own business, watch for the synchronicities and “lucky” occurrences to show you the way.

Virgo: August 21st to September 21st
Virgo Element: Earth
Archetypes: The Analyst, The Alchemist
Planetary Ruler: Mercury
Symbol: The Priestess
Mercury is your planetary ruler and goes retrograde a handful of times a year. You are more affected by Mercury retrograde than your friends (unless you happened to be born during Mercury retrograde). Mercury rules all things having to do with communication so be sure to back up your data, proofread your work and double check plans during the retrograde periods. The first Mercury retrograde of the year begins on January 30th and ends on February 20th.
The Full Moon falls in Virgo on February 27th. The Full Moon is the best time to let go of things that are no longer serving you. As a Virgo, you can be prone to being in your head too much and too much self-criticism. You also may not be the best at self-care. Take a “time out” during the Full Moon to be intentional about letting go of the things you are doing that are no longer serving you. This may be tough for you as Virgo always wants to help. Remember you must put on your own oxygen mask before you can help others with theirs.
The first half of 2021 may have you feeling like staying home. Perhaps you got comfortable with that in 2020. Vesta, an asteroid goddess associated with hearth, home and family, will be in Virgo until mid-July. After her departure, you may feel an unexpected surge of extroversion.
The second Mercury retrograde of 2021 happens between May 29th and June 22nd. This retrograde period brings some frenetic energy with it so be sure to ground any scattered feelings through walks in nature, journaling or reading.
Use the energy of the Virgo New Moon on September 6th to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 7:52pm CST. The New Moon is the BEST time to plant seeds for new ideas, organizational projects, or dreams you want to accomplish!
Autumn brings another round of Mercury retrograde. Mark your calendars right after back to school. The third retrograde of 2021 is from September 26th through October 18th. This retrograde period could cause humorous miscommunications with your partner or loved ones. Remember to find the humor in what the “trickster” Mercury may kick up for you!
All year you may be drawn to explore spiritual or metaphysical topics. Your brain is wired for logical and pragmatic thinking, but perhaps you feel like there is more to the story. Follow your motivation! A spiritual experience, spontaneous or not, might be in the cards for you in 2021.

Libra: September 21st to October 21st
Libra Element: Air
Archetypes: The Lover, The Diplomat
Planetary Ruler: Venus
Symbol: The Scales
All of 2021, a planetary body named “Chiron” will be in your mirror sign of Aries. This energy will be asking you if you are truly being yourself. Do you tend to say “yes” when you really want to say “no?” Chiron is nicknamed the “Wounded Healer” and it’s possible that some wounds could come to your conscious attention that you may have been ignoring for too long. Be sure that you are keeping your own individual identity within partnerships and friendships! The flip side of Chiron is healing energy. Your journey towards anything that needs healing in your life is amplified in 2021.
The Full Moon falls in Libra on March 28th. The Full Moon is the best time to let go of things that are no longer serving you. As a Libra, you can be prone to “people-pleasing” and indecisiveness. You also may not be the best at self-care. Take a “time out” during the Full Moon to be intentional about letting go of the things you are doing that are no longer serving you. Make a decision and stick with it. Let go of any doubt or guilt surrounding your decisions.
Summer looks lovely as your planetary ruler, Venus, will be traveling through the sign that loves to party – Leo! This energy is fantastic for you so be sure to have fun in the sun! The only downside to this energy is the tendency to spend too much on impulsive purchases. However, if a new decorative piece or new look is something that you can’t stop thinking about, go for it during summertime.
Venus will arrive in your sign on August 15th. This energy should feel like HOME. She won’t be visiting long, only until September 10th. During this short trek, take extra time for YOU! If that involves spending time with your partner, then that works too. If you are single, a new love interest could show up during this window of time.
The third Mercury retrograde of 2021 is from September 26th through October 18th in your sign. This energy always brings “trickster” vibes to your communications. Double check your emails before sending and back up your computer and phone data. You want to be sure you are sending that text to the correct recipient as well.
The New Moon is in Libra on October 6, 2021. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 6:05am CST. The New Moon each month is the time to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. This Moon is very powerful for you! The planet Mars will be EXACTLY aligned with the New Moon. This brings an insane amount of energy, ambition and focus to your intentions. You may feel like an Energizer bunny during the few days around this Moon.
The end of 2021 brings the possibility of extra work projects and serious responsibility. Stay grounded and you’ll navigate it no problem.

Scorpio: October 21st to November 21st
Scorpio Element: Water
Archetypes: The Transformer, The Shaman, The Detective, The Therapist
Planetary Ruler: Pluto (historically Mars)
Symbol: The Scorpion, The Eagle, The Phoenix (and more!)
Scorpio is a deeply complex and mysterious sign. It’s safe to say that 2020 was a very complex and mysterious year. You are a deep feeler and “psychic protection” is a must for you. You not only feel your own emotions but are prone to picking the up from others (and even the collective). You have an ability to turn darkness into light like no other. We’ll need your transmutation skills to shed the remaining collective fear and negativity that may linger into the new year.
Uranus will be shaking things up in your mirror sign of Taurus all year. These shake-ups are meant to wake you up. You may find all kinds of people coming to you for advice in 2021. You may not advertise your official or unofficial counseling skills, but somehow people know that they can trust you with their secrets. You help more people than you know just by keeping your vibe high.
The Full Moon falls in Scorpio on April 26th. The Full Moon is the best time to let go of things that are no longer serving you. As a Scorpio, you can be prone to picking up negative emotions and feeling like you can’t shake them off. Take a “time out” during the Full Moon to be intentional of letting go of emotions that are no longer serving you. They might not even be your emotions. Do some work on identifying feelings that come from you as opposed to feeling what others are feeling. Empathing the emotions of others is how you are wired. You just KNOW when something is amiss.
At the end of May, you may receive some BIG news as Jupiter moves into a fellow water sign, Pisces. Something in your life could expand – whether it be your family, career or a relationship.
Venus, the goddess of love, moves in on September 10th. Autumn will bring an air or romance or love into your life. Venus can also represent money so it’s possible some extra income may come your way. Venus will end her visit in Scorpio on October 7th.
The New Moon is in Scorpio on November 4, 2021. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 4:15pm CST. The New Moon each month is the time to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. This Moon has some zany energy attached to it! The planet Uranus will be EXACTLY opposite the New Moon. This could bring you an unexpected surprise. If you are waiting to make a change in your life, this Moon is a great time to pull the trigger!
All year your modern planetary ruler, Pluto, will continue to trek through the sign of Capricorn. This suggests you will have a role in tearing down old structures and rebuilding a better world. This energy also produces “shadow” work from which there is no escape. Remember that all light casts a shadow. Actively facing your shadow it is not as scary as the thought of facing it. You will feel lighter and more carefree as soon as you do.

Sagittarius: November 21st to December 21st
Sagittarius Element: Fire
Archetypes: The Seeker, The Teacher, The Philosopher, The Traveler
Planetary Ruler: Jupiter
Symbol: The Archer
If anyone struggled with staying home through the lockdowns of 2020, it was you, Sagittarius! You have a natural seeking and traveling spirit. With TWO eclipses in Sagittarius in 2021, you can expect any stagnant energy to be on the move soon. The South Node of the Moon continues its journey through Sagittarius all year. Sagittarius is always on a quest for wisdom, knowledge and truth. Expect hidden truths to surface in the coming year that need to be brought to light.
The year starts out with Venus traveling through your sign. This brings love & money matters (and possibly hearing from an ex) to the forefront in January. The asteroid Juno also finds herself in Sagittarius until mid-November. This is a long stay in one sign for this asteroid, who symbolizes Soulmate (or partner) in the birth chart. This indicates a new or former Soulmate could appear in your life. This is also a good year to get closer and deepen your relationship if you are in one.
The planet Mars will travel through your mirror sign of Gemini from March 3rd until April 23rd. This is a great time to take short trips even though you most likely prefer longer travels. You could also find arguments breaking out around you. Do your best to stay detached and not fuel any fires.
A Full Moon lunar eclipse falls in Sagittarius on May 26th. Lunar eclipses symbolize emotional resolutions. If you are hanging on to any lingering resentments, be intentional of releasing them from your energy field on the Full Moon. You don’t like to be wrong, but an error you have made could present itself around the eclipse. Apologize if necessary but don’t dwell. As long as your intentions were pure, you’re all good.
Your planetary ruler, Jupiter, will spend most of 2021 in the sign of Aquarius. This energy will challenge you to get weird! You may find yourself with new tastes or attracted to things you previously had no interest in. Have fun with it! You love and crave change so don’t be too surprised if some of those changes include your taste buds.
The planet Mercury, the messenger, visits your sign starting on November 24th. Expect lots of chatter and communication with friends and family. The New Moon is in Sagittarius on December 3-4, 2021. This also happens to be a total solar eclipse. The New Moon each month is the time to set intentions for what you would like to manifest in your life. This Moon has some mental energy attached to it. The planet Mercury will be lined up with this eclipse. This could bring you an unexpected message or you may feel the need to say something that needs to be said. This eclipse will be in a harmonious aspect with Chiron, nicknamed “The Wounded Healer.” Expect healing on a mental, emotional and spiritual level to occur, if you allow it. The eclipse is a magical time to set your intentions for 2022!

Capricorn: December 21st to January 21st
Capricorn Element: Earth
Archetypes: The Controller, The Ruler, The Boss, The Timekeeper
Planetary Ruler: Saturn
Symbol: The Sea Goat
Capricorn, you are no stranger to hard work, but whoa, 2020 was next level! Most of the planets that have been in your sign will be moving next door by 2021. You can expect a sigh of relief, a breath of fresh air and a big reward for all your efforts last year.
The year starts out with a New Moon in Capricorn on January 12th. The same day last year, Saturn & Pluto met at this point in the zodiac. We now know what their rare meeting produced. The fact that the New Moon will land at the same degree in Capricorn exactly a year later could mean a completely new start. The energy of last year has the potential to be completely wiped clean. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 11:00pm CST. Use the energy of the New Moon to set your intentions for the coming year. The New Moon will be conjunct the planet Pluto which gives you pure power to work with! Expect a “restart” right around your birthday.
Your planetary ruler, Saturn, will be traveling through Aquarius in 2021. This means some of the rules of 2020 need an innovative new look. You should be feeling more relaxed, less stressed and more acceptance this year. Watch for your need to control things. Capricorn can feel like walking on a tightrope if and when they can’t control people or situations. Lessen your grip and practice the art of surrender. Those stiff shoulders and upper back muscles will thank you.
Venus travels through Capricorn from January 8th through February 1st. Venus can symbolize love & money so both matters may come to your consciousness during this timeframe. You may find yourself taking a serious look at your close relationships in January. Last year likely brought you new friends while you lost touch with some old ones. This is ok and part of your soul’s evolution.
Allow yourself to get “weird” in 2021! You most likely worked yourself hard last year and it’s time to loosen up some of the pressure you put on yourself. Don’t be surprised when you start rebelling against the rules you’ve set up for YOURSELF. Allow yourself to delegate work tasks even though it may be hard for you. Your neighbor Aquarius has “signed up” to take on more of any collective hardships that may surface. You do not have to do it all or feel responsible for everything and everyone.
The Full Moon falls in Capricorn on June 24th. This is the best time to be intentional of letting go of things that no longer serve you. The energy of this Full Moon will be getting a boost from Jupiter to make letting go even easier. Breathe out control tendencies, taking on more responsibility than you can handle, and remember to get serious about not taking life too seriously.
The planet Pluto will continue his long journey in Capricorn all of 2021. Old structures will continue to crumble. You may also find yourself feeling lighter and more carefree. Did you know that you are the only sign of the zodiac that reverse ages? Pluto will help you transform your stresses into enthusiasm if you let him. Remember that Pluto does have the nickname “the lord of the underworld” and you may get to know yourself and your motivations on a deeper level in 2021. Face any fears or shadows you’ve been avoiding in life. You will not regret it!

Aquarius: January 21st to February 21st
Aquarius Element: Air
Archetypes: The Rebel, The Humanitarian, The Innovator
Planetary Ruler: Uranus (historically Saturn)
Symbol: The Water Bearer
Are you ready Aquarius? The Age of Aquarius is upon us! It is no coincidence you were born under the sign of the “Water Bearer.” You have an important role in ushering in a new age that will shape our planet for eons to come. The planets Jupiter and Saturn will be moving through your sign in 2021 to bring us abundant innovations (Jupiter) and the laying down of new foundations (Saturn).
The New Moon falls in Aquarius on February 11th. There will be a giant line-up of planets at this time. Use the New Moon energies to set intentions for what you would like to manifest. You can also use the energy of Saturn to bring structure and ask Jupiter to bring you good luck. Call on Venus to bring you money, and finally Mercury who could bring you some information that you are waiting for. That’s right, besides the Sun and the Moon, four other planets will be in Aquarius during the New Moon! The fine print is that Mercury will be retrograde so the message may not come in on time. Any delay in communication will have a deeper purpose.
Jupiter will travel through Aquarius until May 13th. Jupiter will return to Aquarius on July 28th to finish up any “unfinished” business with Aquarius themes. Jupiter expands anything he touches and for most of 2021 Jupiter will be expanding upon Aquarian themes including innovation, technology and individual freedoms. Jupiter will leave Aquarius on December 29th not to return to your sign for another 12 years. This is your year for abundance! Jupiter wants everyone to be happy and will do his best to put things on our path to keep us (or put us back) on the correct one. If you make a “wrong turn” in 2021, know that you will be “course corrected” very quickly. There are TWO Full Moons in Aquarius in 2021 so this adds extra evidence that we are moving into the Age of Aquarius (along with a rare alignment of Jupiter and Saturn meeting at 0 degrees Aquarius on 12/21/20). The first Full Moon in your sign is on July 23rd. The Full Moon is always the best time to be intentional of letting go of things that no longer serve you. You can expect the best results when you try and let go of any negative expression of the Aquarius archetype which includes being fanatical, rebellious or devoid of emotion. If you can’t quite shake off something that is bothering you, you’ll have another chance during the second Full Moon in Aquarius happening on August 22nd. The second Full Moon gets a boost from Jupiter to make letting go even easier.
Be sure to speak your truth in 2021 and speak up about any injustices you may witness. Aquarius usually prefers to stay in the background, but as we move into the new age it’s your time to take center stage. Your Leo friends will help you get the word and messages out that you may have trouble doing yourself. Your outside-the-box ways of thinking, ingenious problem-solving methods and straight up brilliance will be needed as we navigate the collective changes coming our way.

As we slowly move from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius, we can expect the fishes to eventually stop swimming in opposite directions. You should be feeling this shift very strongly. Pisces is the most intuitive and psychic of all the zodiac signs. You’ve got one foot in another world and may not feel entirely comfortable in your own body. Your intuitive gifts should be increasing exponentially as we tear down old structures that did not encourage development of this very important gift of intuition that we all possess. Neptune, your planetary ruler, will continue to travel through Pisces in 2021 which is his home sign. Neptune is associated with mysticism, high spirituality and universal consciousness. The negative expression of Neptune includes “spirits” so watch for escapist tendencies so they don’t get out of control. You are a deep feeler and may not have been taught what to do with all these feelings. Numbing them is an easy option, but head towards them to discover how magical you really are.
The New Moon falls in Pisces on March 13th. The “magic minute” of this New Moon is 4:21am. The New Moon is the best time to set intentions for things you’d like to manifest in your life. This Moon will be next to Venus and Neptune so setting intentions for love, money and intuition enhancement is a slam dunk.
From March 8th through the rest of the year, an asteroid named Pallas Athena will travel through your sign. In mythology, Pallas Athena was a warrior goddess who was brilliant at non-violent conflict resolution. It’s possible that you will be asked in some way during 2021 to help resolve a conflict so it doesn’t get out of control. As Pisces is a water sign, you excel at compassionate action. Always, always trust your intuition!
From May 13th through July 28th, you will be getting a “preview” of what 2022 could bring you. Jupiter will make a short trek through Pisces during this window and then retrograde back into Aquarius. Jupiter will return to Pisces on December 29th right before we enter the new year. As Jupiter takes 12 years to go around the Sun, he spends about one year in each sign. Jupiter is associated with good luck, abundance and wisdom so you’ll get a glimpse of what he will be bringing you in 2022 this summer.
The Full Moon is in Pisces on September 20th. The Full Moon is the best time to be intentional of letting things go that no longer serve you. The planets Mars and Neptune are involved in this Full Moon energy so make sure you aren’t picking up anyone else’s anger (Mars). You are extremely empathic so do some work on identifying emotions that are coming from you as opposed to an external source. The art of practicing “psychic protection” is important for you in order to protect your own energy field.
As we head into the Age of Aquarius, your natural intuitive gifts will become more accepted and even encouraged in our new reality. We’ll need your intuitive and compassionate guidance as we navigate the collective changes in 2021.
