Astrological annual forecast for 2021
Welcome to 2021!
The cosmic clock has brought the world to the Age of Aquarius.
The astrological alignment of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, the planetary arbitration of social consciousness, represents a new chapter in our evolution, a new awakening for humanity, a shift of consciousness.
The awakening of “The Age of Aquarius”.
The Age of Aquarius takes over 2,160 years and is defined by the transition of the Earth’s axis from one constellation to another. From Pisces to Aquarius.
However, the birthing process of a new world is difficult and painful.
The transition to a new era is always accompanied by some form of crisis, economic and cultural revolutions and extreme climatic changes. We are all watching this.
We live in the most fascinating and transforming times that mankind has ever witnessed.
The year 2020 was a total reset for all social, economic and political systems.
Old and failing structures keep crumbling down to make way for new social structures.
The year 2021 is part of a new 20-year cycle of development that will last until 2040 and is linked to the number five which mainly represents change and transformation.
Life in 2020 has been totally changed by the global pandemic of the Corona virus.
What can we expect from the year 2021, the year of the Metal Ox?
A year of guarded assurance.
As mentioned before, Jupiter and Saturn have joined forces in the fixed air sign of Aquarius.
Since the end of December 2020, this conjunction embodies the rhythm of culture and history. With this conjunction in Aquarius, there will be recovery and improvement for all social, economic and political systems.
With progressive innovative ideas and thinking, realistic, planned steps towards unprecedented growth can be made.
Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is calling the world to think globally and act locally.
This conjunction paves the way for the great political and social reform of the Pluto in Aquarius era of 2023-2044.
The catalytic square of Saturn in Aquarius with Uranus in Taurus at the beginning of 2021 presents the world with a fait accompli that the old world is over and room should be given for lasting social, cultural and global progress.
The transit cycle of Saturn and Uranus began in 2007 with the opposition of Saturn and Uranus, triggering the global financial crisis between mid-2007 and early 2009.
Many banks around the world collapsed, millions of people lost their jobs, it was the beginning of the deepest recession since the Great Depression of 1929.
The square between Saturn and Uranus in 2021 to 2022 is the sequel to the recession from 2007 to 2009. The 2020 global recession actually started on January 30, 2020 when the World Health Organization announced that the Corona virus causes COVID-19.
The square between Saturn and Uranus was already topical in 2020.
On February 17th 2021, June 14th 2021 and December 24th 2021, Saturn in Aquarius will form an exact square with Uranus in Taurus.
Saturn wants security and Uranus wants change, so this field of tension presents us with a choice: Maintaining the old, the tried and tested or starting all over again?
Once again in 2022, from September 17th to October 24th 2022, Saturn will form an exact square to Uranus in Taurus, but its shadow period or sphere of influence will remain until the end of January 2023.
We must conclude that Saturn square Uranus is painting a gloomy picture for the world economy. During 2021-2022, we will face high unemployment rates, tough economic times, unprecedented inflation and major threats to our health and personal freedom.
The dynamic year of 2021 will not be an easy year.
Jupiter’s influence in Aquarius is the cosmic force of initiatives and hope for the future.
Jupiter temporarily of taste Pisces from June 20th to July 28th, 2021 can be seen as a short interval.
Uranus in Taurus, ruler of the New World, will remain the planetary troublemaker in 2021, regularly confronting the ruler of the old world, Pluto in Capricorn, supported by Mars and Jupiter.
During the year 2021, Jupiter and Saturn square Uranus in Taurus will lead to a restless political atmosphere. Also from a climatic point of view, there will be multiple landslides in 2021, forcing people to leave their homes and relocate.
Saturn in Aquarius shows that goals in 2021 will only be achieved with patience, motivation and determination. Collaboration is essential.
Uranus in Taurus insists on preserving individual freedom. Saturn in Aquarius is the proverbial social limiter. Saturn square Uranus in Taurus can be the reason that 2021 is the year of social fragmentation and divorce.
Uranus square Saturn forces us to choose to act, to rebuild on the ruins of the past.
To start again, both on an individual and collective scale.
Our collective energy field must be cleared and healed, so that we can move forward together in the new reality.
The Lunar Node remains in Gemini throughout the year and urges us to become familiar with the new reality and live by it, not avoid it or fear it. It encourages us to look outward as well as inward and work together. To see opportunities instead of difficulties.
Transformation is inevitable. Transformation is also evolution.
Gemini, Capricorn and Pisces are the zodiac signs most likely to be successful in 2021!
Thanks to Jupiter in Aquarius, Gemini is making great strides in their career and Capricorn can also look forward to stability, harmony and peace.
The constellation of Pisces may be carried away on a stream of happiness in 2021.
However, Libra, Cancer and or Leo may face cosmic challenges.
The year 2021 kicks off with Uranus in Taurus turning direct from January 14th, 2021.

The driving forces of the conjunction of Mars and Uranus in Taurus (as of January 14th, 2021) square Jupiter in Aquarius initiates a renewal for 2021.
The influence of Jupiter and Saturn implies major technological and revolutionary changes in the social and economic sphere. Robotics and artificial intelligence will expand enormously, as are the worldwide sales of electric cars, wireless systems, sustainable solar, wind and water energy and an unprecedented growth of mobile technology.
The transit of Mercury through Aquarius from January 9th, 2021 to March 15th, 2021 emphasizes the atmosphere of renewal, but is also direct, impulsive and impatient.
Mercury in Aquarius gives a voice to Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. Mercury in Aquarius sees the big picture, but has no interest in individual needs. Mercury in retrograde in Aquarius from January 30th to February 20th, 2021 hits the brakes in order to reorganize, to fix, to revise, to investigate, to clarify problems and to fine-tune future plans.
There will also be a strong emotional resonance of mystery, secrets and back-door politics.
February 2021 is all about pragmatic connection as Venus in Aquarius unites planetary giants Saturn and Jupiter, making it an auspicious month to solve relationship problems, both collectively and individually. On February 21st, Mercury awakes from its first retrograde.
From March 2021, the progressive energy of Mercury in Aquarius will be back on track.
March 2021 will be dominated by negotiations and talks about reforms.
The month of spring, April 2021, will be the month of longing for new possibilities and adventures when Venus and Uranus meet in Taurus in the second half of April 2021.
Pluto in Capricorn turns retrograde from April 27, 2021 to October 5, 2021.

Jupiter travels through Pisces from December 30th, 2021 to May 10th, 2022 and turns back retrograde in Pisces from October 29th to December 20th, 2022.
Eclipses act as a catalyst on our collective path to the future.
The total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius of May 26th, 2021 and the Annular Solar Eclipse in Gemini of June 10th, 2021 are cosmic gateways to awaken humanity.
A society of alienation and exclusion simply cannot exist. Only a just and respectful multicultural society of tolerance and mutual respect and recognition for and from everyone offers perspective, enrichment and ways of the future.
This Lunar Eclipse of June 10th, 2021 at 5º26 ’in Sagittarius is visible in Southeast Asia, large parts of North America, South America, the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean and Antarctica.
Like every year, Summer is the period of retrogradation.

Mercury retrograde in Gemini affects unprocessed emotions and feelings directly related to issues of the past, origins, family and home.
Of all retrograde planets, retrograde Saturn in Aquarius will have the most impact from May 23th to October 10th, 2021. Saturn is karma, discipline, structures and boundaries, so it will be 141 days of karmic life lessons in which we learn to overcome difficult situations and make wise decisions. During this period, Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius and Pisces in particular face challenges in their career and private life.
This is an ideal time to review structures of society and technology.
Jupiter retrograde from June 20th, 2021 to July 28th, 2021 in Pisces and from July 29th to October 17th, 2021 in Aquarius, is a period of re-evaluation and reassessment of multiple sectors such as forms of cooperation, marriage, business partnerships.
Favorable period for retraining, resits and postponed travel.
Neptune is retrograde in Pisces from June 25th to November 30th, 2021 in Pisces.

Chiron is retrograde in Aries, between July 15th and December 19th, 2021. During this time, the influence of the Wounded Healer in Aries may find an effective and safe vaccine against COVID-19, which can be a turning point is this crisis.
From July 2021, there will be a period in which decisions will be made, such as breaking off professional cooperation, partnerships and relationships.
Many will be moving this Summer. I also foresee large migration flows in the Summer of 2021.
Uranus in Taurus is retrograde from August 20th to January 17th, 2022. In the coming months, retrograde Uranus in Taurus will lead to insights and a higher self-awareness, especially in the field of finances and valuation.
In the first half of September 2021, Mars in Virgo will form a trine in Earth with retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. A driving and constructive period of preceded issues involving money, study, culture, career or travel.
However, Mars in Virgo trine retrograde Pluto in Capricorn also shows the need to solve problems first, especially those we thought we had already overcome.
In September and early October 2021 there will be as many as six planets in retrograde (including Mercury in Libra from September 27th to October 17th, 2021) and some major asteroids, so renewal is only possible once the old is resolved.
Mercury’s third retrograde period in Libra from September 27th, 2021 to October 17th, 2021, reveals deeply hidden and highly sensitive issues intertwined with relationship intimacy.
Pluto in Capricorn turns direct from October 6th, 2021 and Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius will also turn direct, respectively on October 10th and 18th, 2021.
The first half of October 2021 could cause turmoil and upheaval as Mercury in Libra retrograde squares Pluto in Capricorn, forcing us to clear up misunderstandings and heal the socioeconomic gap of growing inequality between rich and poor, between young and old, employed and non-employed people and between people with and without a migration background.
Mars, the champion of social justice in Libra, will form a trine in Air with Jupiter in Aquarius in the second half of October, but will remain square on Pluto in Capricorn, just a remainder of October 2021, forcing us to find an effective solution to the social and economic dichotomy.
On Halloween October 31st, 2021, Mars will enter the intense waters of Scorpio.
Unresolved conflicts could erupt in mid-November 2021, as Mars in Scorpio will grow into an exact opposition at 12º27 with retrograde Uranus in Taurus on November 18th, 2021.
November 2021 is therefore not the easiest month of the year, but nevertheless, it could herald a temporary economic upturn.
On November 19th, 2021, a partial Lunar Eclipse will occur at 27º14 in earthly Taurus.
This spiritual Lunar Eclipse is visible in many parts of Europe and Asia, Australia, Northwest Africa, North America, South America, the Arctic and the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Ocean.
The year 2021 will end on December 4th, 2021 with a total Solar Eclipse at 12º22 “in the fire sign of Sagittarius.
This total Solar Eclipse can be seen in South Australia, South Africa, South America, the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic and Indian Ocean and the Arctic.
On December 14th, 2021, Mars enters the fire sign of Sagittarius, just as Venus aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. With these composite forces, we are encouraged to close the year with confidence and hope.
Throughout 2021, the square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus is a major test for the world.
In fact, the world is in a global crisis in which the personal and collective energy field is turned upside down. Limiter Saturn tries to control humanity in social Aquarius, to keep it under control.
Uranus in Taurus, however, demands freedom at any cost.
Losing individual freedom is disastrous, because freedom is a fundamental right.
Especially now that we are forced to protect ourselves and others by keeping distance and facial masks, we turn inward towards ourselves.
In individual segregation, the world makes this evolutionary leap to come to a deeper awareness of the Self, the inner source.
So we have to return inwards, to ourselves, the inner Source first, before a new society will be possible.
Saturn square Uranus is like a cosmic storm paving the way for a productive and innovative future.
There is no escape, the world can’t go on the way it was.
When the dust of this ordeal has settled from 2023, the world will be completely changed.
A return to the old is impossible, so we have no other choice than to go forward, together.
To a new society in the new reality.
Hope you have a resourceful and safe 2021!
