The new year is always a threshold of hope. This year particularly, many of us are eager to launch a new chapter, and we see 2021 as an opportunity to start fresh. We have been tremendously tested in 2020, and while that will not disappear overnight, there is plenty of reason to feel encouraged about what this new year will bring. The astrology of 2021 offers a strong signature of innovation, group work and renewed possibility, though some months will offer more possibilities to help you achieve your goals than others.

In December 2020, Jupiter and Saturn are moving into the sign of Aquarius, which rules group creativity, freedom and democracy. It is also one of the great humanitarian signs, reminding us that we are all in this together. It also offers technological advances and innovative problem solving. When Jupiter and Saturn work together, we grow exponentially and simultaneously create new structures to support the growth. There could be medical or technological breakthroughs that, in true Aquarian fashion, can be distributed quickly and effectively. Jupiter will spend most of the year in Aquarius (with a few months in Pisces in the middle of the year), and Saturn will spend more than two years there. Yes, Aquarius, this is your year!

Plus, Uranus continues to transit the sign of Taurus, bringing change and excitement particularly to the earth signs of the zodiac – Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn – though Scorpio will also get a good dose of this reinvention as well. Uranus asks us to be willing to invite change. It wants us to look at problems with new eyes. We shake things up. We move. We change. We set ourselves free.

Let’s take a look at what this year might hold for each sign of the zodiac. If you know your rising sign, be sure to read that as well. This little glimpse into 2021 will help you understand when the stars are on your side – and when things might be a little more challenging. While some might say those months are unlucky, remember that nothing is destined. There is still opportunity in those months, and how they turn out is really about the way we choose to use the energy available.
