I think we can all agree that the astrology of 2020 has been intense, but luckily we are about to be honored with the renewed energy of a whole new year. Of course, with a New Year comes a whole new line of astrological drama and also a shimmering new batch of 2021 horoscopes for each zodiac sign.
In these uncertain times, it helps to have a cosmic heads-up on the vibrations that await your zodiac sign over the coming year. What to expect from the planets in 2021? Well, we have a lot of air sign energy on our hands.
Jupiter and Saturn, both of which move into the innovative sign of Aquarius in December 2020, are considered the “social planets” in astrology because they reside between personal inner planets and distant outer planets. Bringing them together in Aquarius will shake the structures of our society and help us adopt a more collaborative and humanitarian perspective.
Also look for the foundation-shaking series of tense square aspects between Saturn and Uranus that also occur in February, June, and December, as these will cause friction between past tradition and futuristic innovations.
The North Node, which represents the fate of our future, is in aerial Gemini throughout the coming year, teaching us to pay attention to the little details around us. Mercury’s retrograde periods of 2021 are also blowing up through the air signs, with one each hitting in Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
These backspins ask us to focus on issues of partnerships, communication, information sharing, and working with others. Read the message for your zodiac sign below to get a better idea of what to expect for the new year.
