Love and Relationships in 2021
Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius in 2021
With Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius much of the year, friendship and community matters make headlines in 2021, overshadowing love matters in a general sense. Although social matters tend to dominate, we are in the position to take a more detached and honest approach to affairs of the heart.
Saturn in Aquarius can bring tests to friendships, but these test their foundations, and those with weak foundations are challenged to strengthen them. In fact, Jupiter is in Aquarius much of 2021, and a spirit of friendship and acceptance is brought to our love relationships, even our most intimate and passionate ones.
Saturn in Aquarius in 2021
A more serious approach to our friendships is in order this year. Saturn transiting the sign of casual relationships, acquaintances, and associates brings a mature and serious tone to these connections. Some may feel it as burdensome. Relationships may go through a sort of “road test” during this 2+ year cycle.
Long-term compatibility and shared visions or friendships are factors we take into consideration more than usual.
Jupiter in Aquarius in 2021
With Jupiter in Aquarius, we are more idealistic, humanitarian, and hopeful this year, although we’re also practical as Saturn in Aquarius tempers our outlook and gives us a sense of proportion. A spirit of friendship and acceptance is brought to our love relationships, even our most intimate and passionate ones.
Jupiter in Aquarius inspires a need for communication, freedom, and a feeling of camaraderie in our relationships. Giving our existing partners room to breathe is thus wise. Smothering a partner is not going to be well-received for the most. Tolerance and acceptance themes are reinforced with Jupiter’s influence in this humanitarian sign.
In terms of love relationships and partnering, Jupiter in Aquarius energy is fair-minded, cooperative, impartial, and impersonal. We value freedom of choice, individuality, fellowship, and friendship. So, while Pluto is working to transform our values in the long term, Jupiter has a more immediate effect on our value system, and in 2021, our attitude towards partnering is likely going to be less than traditional.
Jupiter in Pisces in 2021
Jupiter peeks into compassionate, spiritual Pisces this year–from May 13-July 28, and then from December 28th forward. We’re getting a nice preview of this energy in 2021, but there’s more to the story in 2022.
During this transit, we have a stronger belief in a higher power. We are most able to attract luck and rich life experiences through our intuition, imagination, and compassion. Helping those in need boosts our own morale. We attract the best fortune when we are charitable, tender, devoted, compassionate, giving, and when we look out for the underdog. We are more idealistic and perhaps less ambitious in a worldly sense, more motivated to give than receive. Faith in the basic goodness of people can bring about positive circumstances or good “luck.”
We should watch for escapism, bending personal philosophies or morals to suit the situation, deception and self-deception, restlessness and vague discontent, and unwillingness to face problems or negative situations directly.
Uranus in Taurus in 2021
Uranus is once again in Taurus, and we’re completely redefining our views of money and belongings. We’re also “doing” comfort in brand new ways. It’s fun, but sometimes, the uncertainty throws us off-center.
Chiron in Aries in 2021
Chiron in Aries all year suggests that, in order to heal and grow, we need to work on self-confidence, body image, and our relationship with our independence. It’s certainly a me-oriented transit, but it’s a vital one if we want to bring our whole selves into a relationship.
The North Node of the Moon in Gemini in 2021
The North Node of the Moon spends the year in Gemini, and we’d do very well for ourselves if we can work on improving our communication skills. This includes gathering facts and not just making presumptions or spreading misinformation. In our relationships, taking more interest in one another’s day-to-day lives, reaching out regularly, and extending gestures that show we care or that we listen can be particularly strengthening in 2021.
Pluto in Capricorn in 2021
Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn and will stay there for years to come, slowly transforming our values on many levels. With regard to relationships, we are likely to see an increased attraction to mature partnering, status, and professionalism.
2021 is the Number 5
Another masculine or “yang” influence on the year, the Number 5 favors variety, intellectual sharing, and repartee.
2021 is the Year of the Ox.
In Chinese Astrology, the period from February 3, 2021, to February 3, 2022, is represented by the Ox. The year 2021 is the year of the Yin Metal Ox (or Cow). [Note, the Chinese New Year is not always the same date as the beginning of the new zodiac sign year (start of Spring)–this year, the New Year is February 11, 2021.]
In order to understand this energy in terms of relationships, we’ll need to keep in mind that the Ox is solid, hard-working, and committed. The Ox takes its time, is patient, and cautious.
Approaching a new love interest this year is best done with patience, some restraint, and diligence. Show your solid and stable qualities.
New love this year will more likely last in the long term if it starts slowly and develops steadily.
Those born in the years of the Rooster and Snake may be the most fortunate in 2021 in terms of love, as long as they “keep it real.” Rats have special attractive powers this year. Sheep/Goat may have more problems than other signs.
2021 is a strong year for developing relationships already begun. It favors building, preparing for the future, and commitment.
The White Metal Cow/Ox energy suggests movement and communication, but it’s not as sociable as other signs, preferring easygoing or domestic activities.
Venus retrograde in Capricorn in 2021
Venus retrogrades in the sign of Capricorn near the end of the year, from December 19th, 2021, forward, bringing about a need to rethink or reassess our personal relationships. Past lovers may reappear and some relationships may end. Commitment or business/practical problems can be a hot topic. Old friends and lovers may re-appear, perhaps complicating current relationships. We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or predestined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period of time. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored just for now.
Those who have Capricorn strong in their charts may be more introspective, distant, or hard to reach during this cycle. They may not be in a very favorable light just for the time being. It’s not the best period for entering into a new relationship, because our sensors when it comes to love are not up to par. Note that Venus retrograded in the sign of Capricorn 8 years before this date (from December 21, 2013, to January 31, 2014), and similar themes can re-emerge, if relevant.
Love in 2021 in General
Mutable sign people (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) are in generally good shape. The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) have Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn very directly influencing them in 2021, mostly in the first half of the signs. The signs of Leo and Libra have the most direct influences on their relationship sectors.
The best advice this year may be to give your partner or potential partner space, show tolerance and acceptance, and be patient.
