Before we dig into each sign, here’s a little trivia about the year ahead:
○ Most astrologers agree that 2021 will be less tumultuous than 2020, and it will be an especially good year to draw abundance into your life. It will also be a time to come up with improved ways to organize our lives.
○ Planetary movements will play a key role (as they always do in astrology). Some highlights: The positions of Jupiter, Venus + Saturn will enhance the importance of community in our lives. And, Saturn’s move into Aquarius is one that historically comes with some big shifts – the last time it was there, the internet was introduced to the public. See the precise movements of celestial bodies withthese charts.
○ In the Chinese zodiac, 2021 is the Year of the Ox. This year, the element associated with the ox is metal(2020 was also a metal year, but was the Year of the Rat). For all signs of the Chinese zodiac, the year will bring prosperity and luck in business ventures, as well as wellness. Experts say to be on the lookout for new career opportunities as well. DYK: The Chinese New Year is a lunar event, usually celebrated between mid-January and February. This year it’s on Feb. 12.
Here’s what one of our fave astrologers, Aleka Thorvalson, has to say generally about how things are looking for 2021:
“Things like information, science, discoveries, and technology are going to be at the forefront. …Expect not to have all the answers right away. Expect to be challenged to perceive your reality differently – people, politics, social dynamics, technology, occupations, schooling, and health care, all seen through new eyes.”
