I think we can all agree that the astrology of 2020 has been intense, but thankfully, we're about to be graced with the fresh-start energy of a brand new year. Of course, with a new year comes a new lineup of astrological drama — and a sparkly new batch of 2021 horoscopes for each zodiac sign. During these uncertain times, it's helpful to have a cosmic heads-up as to what vibes are in store for your zodiac sign through the year to come.
What should we expect from the planets in 2021? Well, we've got lots 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, as they reside in between the personal inner planets and the faraway outer planets. Having them clustered together in forward-thinking Aquarius will shake up the structures in our society and help us embrace a more collaborative and humanitarian outlook. Oh, and look out for the foundation-shaking series of tense square aspects between Saturn and wild-child planet Uranus happening in February, June, and December, too, as those will cause friction between past traditions and futuristic innovations.
The North Node, which represents the fate of our future, is in airy Gemini through the coming year, teaching us to pay attention to the little details all around us. 2021's Mercury retrograde periods are also blowing up through the air signs, with one each hitting in Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. These backspins are asking us to focus on matters of partnerships, communication, information-sharing, and working with others.
