Jupiter expands our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, and abundance. In Sagittarius, Jupiter urged us to increase our cultural and spiritual awareness, expand our higher minds, broaden our experiences, and have faith in the universe (from November 2018 to December 2019).
While in Capricorn, Jupiter urged us to define goals, seek out tangible results, act ethically and maturely, and take a disciplined and step-by-step approach to realize our objectives. We focused on our material goals, structures, rules, and sense of responsibility (from December 2019 to December 2020).
Now in Aquarius, Jupiter expands our awareness of our place in the community and the needs of all. Jupiter in Aquarius encourages fairness, impartiality, individuality, and humanitarianism. We reap rewards through being more inclusive and just. We’re opening our minds to progress.
Jupiter is in Aquarius from:
December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and
July 28 to December 28, 2021.
Aquarius is an Air sign. With an Air sign Jupiter, we are mentally adventurous, ready and willing to learn, into “mind expansion,” and less attached to our traditions than with other signs because we are generally quite impartial and open-minded. We can see many sides to any given argument.
Winning Good Fortune
With Jupiter in Aquarius, we attract the best fortune when we are tolerant and fair, inventive, impartial, and cooperative. We function at our best when we have freedom of choice, when we break through some barriers, and when we think outside of the box.
We value social reform and positive, humanitarian action during this Jupiter cycle. Our attitudes and values concerning religion, moral conduct, education, and politics are progressive, visionary, and original.
We also value freedom, individuality, fellowship, and group goals and visions. Still, as progressive as Aquarius is, it’s also a Fixed sign, and there can be some inflexibility or rigidity with this position, which we’ll explore.
Too Much Jupiter in Aquarius
Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much.” This applies no matter what sign Jupiter is currently visiting. Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the more negative qualities of a sign, just as it can expand the positive traits.
Jupiter’s enthusiasm can be well-intentioned but might blind us to our immoderate behaviors.
In Aquarius, we can be reactive and rebellious rather than progressive, if overdone. We can also be quite stubborn. Especially with its square to Uranus in 2021, we may lack follow-through, living too much in the mind without enough action.
We can also be quite erratic with our output, working only when feeling inspired, which isn’t always practical. While we’re strong on our ideas with Jupiter in Aquarius, we should put a more concerted effort and commitment into putting those bright ideas into action. Theory is great, but applying it is important. These are possible downfalls to watch for during this Jupiter sign cycle.
Jupiter in Aquarius Working For Us
However, the higher vibration or expression of Jupiter seeks perspective. Jupiter’s perspective isn’t a detached, analytical, or detailed look at any given situation, but an overview–a look at the “big picture.” With Jupiter, ideally, we are able to rise above pettiness, mundane concerns, inconveniences, and the like.
Where Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is generally where you are inclined to find your joy at this stage in your development. This area of your life expands and improves in some manner.
There is also a need for new tools to boost and build these areas of life. In order to develop, we need to pursue our goals with an open mind and keep a spirit of progress in our hearts.
This is a powerful cycle in which to feel more grateful for one another, and at the same time, hold on to a spirit of growth and improvement.
It’s also a fantastic period in which to improve our social skills. Teaching, mentoring, guiding, and sharing can be satisfying. We see beyond class, religion, and other labels, and we tend to connect with ideas, beliefs, and practices that have a universal nature.
While our material affairs were a strong focus while Jupiter was in Capricorn, with Jupiter in Aquarius, our concern is more with altruistic, humanitarian causes. It’s a great time to put our egos aside to help one another advance, improve, and thrive. We care much about individuality, but we’re also very interested in what happens to society or the majority.
The Jupiter in Aquarius cycle is a good period for astrology or New Age thinking, science, electronics, philosophy, and reform. We might prosper through ideas generated or involvement with friends, groups, and community efforts.
It’s in the world of ideas where we tend to want to grow, improve, expand, and thrive, or it’s through our minds, beliefs, and ideas that we feel we can prosper. Generosity among friends and groups is a strong point of this Jupiter-in-Aquarius cycle.
There is a revolutionary quality to Aquarius that needs managing, especially with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, involved. We should watch for “intolerance of intolerance” or policing ideas, especially with Saturn also involved. It’s rare, but Saturn is concurrently transiting the sign of Aquarius while Jupiter is in the sign. Saturn’s transit of Aquarius certainly refines this Jupiter cycle, helping to tame the more extravagant nature of Jupiter, but sometimes limiting its expression.
However, in a general sense, we’re ready to innovate and make progress. If traditions are not doing us any favors, we can break free from them with less sentimentality. Aquarius is capable of detaching where needed, and it’s a powerful ability.
Causes and movements are in stronger focus as we seek to effect change and overturn traditions that are holding us back from growing. It’s a time when we feel more fulfilled as we lift others up. In fact, we may do our best work or make the most progress when we’re working toward the benefit of others or society, in general, during this cycle.
Jupiter in Aquarius & the Mind
We’re processing and understanding more through the mental function or the use of words at this time, potentially leading to improvements in choosing the right words and reasoning or communicating more skillfully, not only with others but with ourselves.
The fact that the North Node of the Moon is concurrently transiting the Air sign Gemini further boosts this theme. We’re encouraged to find better words or means of communication to get through to one another and make progress.
We might, for example, find better slogans for movements that are misunderstood. Or, we might use words to invite more people to partake in our conversations or causes, replacing words that have previously turned people away.
We value logic, science, rationality, and objectivity while Jupiter is in Aquarius, more so than usual. These things hold more weight.
We are most concerned with people and personal freedom, but we are also strongly aware of the importance of the group and society. Our tolerance, originality, and sense of justice can help us thrive.
With work, we need some leeway to connect with our source of inspiration, and pushing this by working set hours can be challenging. We want to draw on our originality, and we seek mental stimulation.
During this cycle, we recognize and celebrate differences but also emphasize the need to join together to improve society as a whole. We thrive when we have a worthy cause in mind. We are also stronger at seeing commonalities between people from different groups. Our minds go where others haven’t gone.
Media, Health, Energy
We may see more Aquarian themes and topics in the media as we become more and more fascinated with Aquarius energies. While Aquarius is associated with the “lone wolf” type, Aquarius can also be someone who is a friend to people from all walks of life.
Aquarius is the rebel, the one who’s unafraid to do things a little differently or to be ahead of their time in their thinking. We may see more themes spotlighting the inventor, the activist, the absent-minded professor, or the eccentric. The friendly but detached style of Aquarius can be in vogue. People with strong Aquarius influences in their charts (for example, Harry Styles, Ashton Kutcher, Sheryl Crow, Christie Brinkley, Axl Rose) can rise in popularity. Mind you, Saturn is also in Aquarius, and we can also be taking them more seriously.
Health issues with Jupiter are usually related to excesses, while Aquarius issues are often connected to the calves, ankles, circulation, nerves, the mind, or issues related to detachment or erratic health practices. Aquarius is associated in some cases with rheumatism, electrical injuries, related to poor circulation, cramping in the lower leg, and injuries to the ankles.
The sign is also associated with the oxygenation process of the body, as well as blood circulation. It’s certainly possible that latent problems in these areas can magnify during this Jupiter transit. A lower-starch diet and breathing exercises are recommended.
Jupiter in Aquarius: Dates
Jupiter zips through the sign of Aquarius, moves on to Pisces, but later returns and spends more time in the last decan of Aquarius due to retrograde motion. It goes as follows:
Jupiter travels through the entire sign of Aquarius from December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021.
Jupiter moves on to Pisces on May 13th, turns retrograde at only 2 degrees of Pisces on June 20th, and then heads back over the same ground until it returns to Aquarius on July 28th.
Having returned to Aquarius on July 28th, Jupiter continues in retrograde motion until it turns direct on October 18th.
Now direct, Jupiter continues in the sign of Aquarius until December 28th, 2021, when it moves on for good. Jupiter won’t return to Aquarius until 2032.
Aspects Jupiter Forms while transiting the sign of Aquarius in 2020 and 2021.
The following are Jupiter’s transits to the outer planets while it’s in Aquarius this time around.
Dec 21, 2020, at 1:20 PM —– Jupiter 0 Aquarius 29 conjunction Saturn 0 Aquarius 29
Jupiter trine True North Node on February 26th, 2021, at 16° Aquarius 09′ (standalone).
Jupiter’s conjunction to Saturn is also called the Great Conjunction. It’s a one-time pass, not a drawn-out one, but it’s nevertheless powerful, occurring only once every twenty years or so. Of course, this happens far less frequently in the same sign.
With Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius, we value practical accomplishment on human and technological levels. It marks a time to focus on restructuring, and it’s a powerful prompt for new beginnings–we’re taking the first steps to grow. Our vision empowers us, and it’s a practical one. We avoid the waste of overestimation, although some underestimation is likely and a trade-off.
While we can be working hard, we’re not working against the grain–for the most part, there’s support or our realistic confidence supports us. We’re inclined to focus these rebuilding and reforming energies and visions on our humanitarian impulses, contributions to society, social life, technological development, causes, and friendships. In some ways, this can be considered a reset button–a chance to build anew.
Jupiter’s sextile to Chiron prompts us to explore our capacity to understand and comprehend, our relationship to our beliefs, our understanding of the truth, and the desire to share, guide, teach, and learn. It’s a one-time pass, coloring much of the month of January 2021.
Our attempts to broaden our horizons through such experiences as furthering our education, expanded activities, and spirituality, contribute much to our personal growth during this period.
This subtly uplifting time brings us the opportunity to free ourselves from restrictive and negative attitudes that have been undermining our progress. We are especially open to learning from others and better able to help others understand our perspective. We might open our minds to different views and philosophies.
We are absorbing and possibly sharing what we’ve learned from past experiences and mistakes. It’s an incredible time to understand and improve due to this openness and humility.
Around the same time, Jupiter forms a square to Uranus, and our capacity for change and innovation enlarges. We need to be willing to make mindful changes in our lives now, or else change can feel forced upon us. This is a rebellious, restless influence–one in which we should avoid stirring the pot mindlessly.
We might take risks (perhaps foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. This is not an ideal time for financial speculation or travel. We too easily avoid taking responsibility for things that truly matter during this transit.
However, we might open ourselves up to new ways of thinking, which can be magical. Changes as a matter of course can be chaotic, but they can also turn into interesting and useful detours.
It’s best not to jump too quickly into new ventures, as follow-through may not be easy at this time. Impulsiveness can work if we’re in tune with our needs, but it can lead to mistakes if we’re not. We should watch for making decisions while in the “freedom at all costs” mindset.
If we feel rushed, we might throw ourselves into a decision, just to be done with it! We might find it difficult to agree or to find something in common with others. We need to make changes but may not know what or when, and there can be bursts of rebelliousness if we are not in touch. We should probably avoid making dramatic or abrupt decisions until we’re clearer about what we want. It can be tempting to push impractical projects ahead, but we’re likely to face obstacles if we do.
This transit seems to stoke the rebellious side of Jupiter in Aquarius.
Tap into the desire to innovate, learn new things, and open your mind to unconventional ideas.
Jump into too many new things if significant resources are on the line.
Jupiter’s trine to the True North Node of the Moon in February points to a willingness to grow, learn, improve, and develop, moving past our fears. We are ready to embrace new methods and attitudes, leaving behind those no longer serving our growth. Jupiter encourages us to embrace our visions, and its trine to the North Node helps us balance our vision with our intuition. Our conscience is well-developed, and we want to help others. We’re more inclined than usual to believe in the power of the group.
This transit increases our desire to connect with like-minded people or those who can help push us in the direction of growth and improvement. We might form relationships with others who broaden our horizons, expand our minds or worldview, or deepen our personal philosophy. We seek more meaning in life. It’s a fine time for publishing, community involvement, teaching, guiding, and learning. Harmonizing through shared ideas and ideals can figure very strongly at this time.
Jupiter’s Minor Outer Planet Aspects while in Aquarius:
Jan 4, 2021, 1:58 AM —– Jupiter 3 Aquarius 32 semi-square Neptune 18 Pisces 32
Jan 9, 2021 3:47 AM —– Jupiter 4 Aquarius 43 sesquiquadrate True Node 19 Gemini 43
Nov 27, 2021 11:16 AM —– Jupiter 24 Aquarius 57 semi-sextile Pluto 24 Capricorn 57
Dec 24, 2021 2:25 AM —– Jupiter quintile Uranus
The Jupiter-Neptune semi-square in January adds a thread of idealism to the mix of energies. We’re hopeful but perhaps looking in the wrong places. Unrealistic or inflated expectations can mislead us–people can lead us astray, too. We might gloss over important and realistic details or suffer from disorganization.
Jupiter’s semi-square to Chiron in August and November suggests a hunger for meaning and understanding. Still, it can be difficult to align ourselves with a personal philosophy or belief system that truly reflects our core. It’s best to look within and come to a greater understanding of what we truly need or believe, rather than blindly following something that doesn’t truly serve our purpose.
With Jupiter’s quintile to Uranus in July and December, we notice and appreciate the more unique elements of situations, people, and projects.
Jupiter’s conjunctions with the Inner Planets
The following conjunctions of inner planets to Jupitercan help us pinpoint particularly opportune periods (power boosts) for Jupiter in Aquarius (times are Eastern):
Mercury aligns with Jupiter in Aquarius first on January 11, 2021, at 12:19 PM (Mercury and Jupiter are at 5 degrees Aquarius 16′). Our ideas are big, brilliant, and inspiring. Mercury moves on, later turns retrograde, and then returns to align with Jupiter in retrograde motion on February 14, 2021, at 4:39 PM EST (at 13° Aquarius 21′). The third pass happens when Mercury is direct again: on March 4, 2021, at 10:27 PM EST (at 17° Aquarius 33′). We can have powerful insights from January 11-March 4, even if these revelations and ideas take time to flesh out.
The Sun aligns with Jupiter in Aquarius on January 28, 2021, at 8:39 PM EST (the Sun and Jupiter are at 9° Aquarius 22′). We’re wide open to possibilities and opportunities.
Venus aligns with Jupiter on February 11, 2021, at 9:59 AM (Venus and Jupiter are at 12 degrees Aquarius 34′). We’re generous with others and searching for meaning in our relationships and pastimes.
The Moon aligns with Jupiter every four weeks. While Jupiter is in Aquarius, these dates are January 13, February 10th, March 11th, April 7th, May 4th, August 22nd, September 18th, October 15th, November 11th, and December 9th.
Jupiter in Aquarius (December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and then July 28 to December 28, 2021) and Business/Career Jupiter encourages a progressive approach to business during the course of this transit, with the emphasis on new thinking, progress, science, culture, the individual, community, and society. However, this comes at a time when Saturn in Aquarius –an overlapping transit– wants us to keep all of this real and practical. While Jupiter asks us to grow, expand, and believe, Saturn asks us to simplify, test, and question. We may need to use our better judgment on when to do what. As with Jupiter in Capricorn, we need to be principled to succeed in business and career during current transits, but unlike Jupiter in Capricorn, there is now a de-emphasis on tradition and the material world. Showing our originality, vision, and commitment to the team to employers or employees makes sense now.
Businesses related to science, electronics, New Age principles, alternative health methods, astrology, sociology, and teaching may prosper. We care more about progress than we do precedent or tradition. Innovation may be more important than experience in our minds at this time. Our energies for work may be more suited to flexible hours. Working for others may be more prosperous than working only for our own benefit. We might value those with vision more than usual. Drawing on the abilities of teams can be most successful. In promotional materials, a stronger focus on progress, vision, change, improvement, and community is in order.
Jupiter in Aquarius (December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and then July 28 to December 28, 2021) and Relationships/Love With Jupiter in Aquarius (and Saturn in the sign as well), friendship and community matters make headlines, overshadowing romantic matters in a general sense. Although social affairs 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, mainly in the form of tests to their foundations. Friendships with weak foundations are challenged to strengthen them. Jupiter in Aquarius brings a spirit of friendship and acceptance to our love relationships, even our most intimate and passionate ones.
Long-term compatibility and shared visions or friendships are factors we take into consideration more than usual. We are idealistic, humanitarian, and hopeful, although we’re also practical as Saturn in Aquarius tempers our outlook and gives us a sense of proportion.
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 during this cycle.
Themes of tolerance and acceptance are reinforced with Jupiter’s influence in this humanitarian sign. Even so, lack of agreement on principles can be a point of contention, and we could very well find more breakups than usual happening over principles and beliefs in 2021.
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. While Pluto is working to transform our values in the long term, Jupiter has a more immediate effect on our value system. With Jupiter in Aquarius for much of 2021, our attitude towards partnering will be less than traditional.
For greater success in love and relationship while Jupiter transits Aquarius, showcase your progressive, unique, intelligent, learned, and humanitarian qualities. We tend to value friendship more than usual during this transit. Improvements to relationships now can involve some intensive work on hearing one another and communicating more effectively. We’re not impressed or patient with dogma and over-sentimentality, and we care far less about material standing than we do integrity.
Jupiter in Aquarius Ephemeris 2020-2021 (Monthly)
Jupiter’s recent transits: In Aries (most recently, from June 2010 to June 2011), Jupiter encouraged us to make our own opportunities, to believe in ourselves, and to take charge of our lives.
The next time Jupiter will be in Aries is from May 2022 to October 2022 and then December 2022 to May 2023.
In Taurus (from June 2011 to June 2012), Jupiter urged us to enjoy and appreciate what we already have and to adopt a patient approach to achieving our goals.
The next Jupiter in Taurus period will be from May 2023 to May 2024.
In Gemini (from June 2012 to June 2013), Jupiter encouraged us to learn as much as we could about the people around us, as well as to share and connect.
Jupiter will return to Gemini next from May 2024 to June 2025.
In Cancer (from June 2013 to July 2014), Jupiter motivated us to honor our intuition, emotions, families, and inner needs, and build our support systems.
In Leo (from July 2014 to August 2015), Jupiter encouraged us to express ourselves confidently, to be generous and creative, and to find new ways to enjoy ourselves.
In Virgo (from August 2015 to September 2016), Jupiter motivated us to take pride in our health, work, services, and routines.

Jupiter spends many months in the sign of Aquarius. The last time Jupiter transited Aquarius was from January 2009 to January 2010. What we started during this period is now enjoying a Jupiter return — it’s going through a rebirth, of sorts — so that it might blossom, increase, or require adjustments in order to grow further.
Before that period, Jupiter was in Aquarius from January 1997 to February 1998, from February 1985 to February 1986, from February 1973 to March 1974, and from March to August 1961 and then November 1961 to March 1962.
If you have Jupiter in Aquarius in your natal chart, then YOU are enjoying a Jupiter return.
Jupiter Transiting Aquarius Horoscopes: What it Means for Each Sign
The following are excerpted from my 2021 Preview Horoscopes. In a general sense, this is how Jupiter’s transit through Aquarius affects the different Sun signs (and Ascendant signs):
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your social life, happiness goals, and sense of innovation and experimentation are set to increase, boost, and improve. This trend sticks with you for most of the year 2021, with the exception of the dates from May 13-July 28 and December 28 forward. This period finds you more sociable, hopeful, connected, and concerned with boosting your happiness.
Several possibilities arise with this transit, depending on your current situation. While it’s with you for almost a year, this cycle only comes up every twelve years or so.
It’s a fine time for finding more fulfilling activities, making rewarding friendships or connections, and discovering your need for community.
During this cycle, you’re likely to find your joy in friends, group associations, and brand new and promising projects and initiatives. It’s also a time for planting some seeds, symbolically speaking. You are dreaming up new long-term plans and ventures.
Your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow. It’s a time for feeling considerably more confident about the future, as well as your ability to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish some of your most cherished hopes and dreams.
While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might overestimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact (which can certainly be online) with others, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new communications project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. Business income should increase.
This can be a time of budding friendships and/or group involvement. New people may come into your life and seek your friendship, or existing friendships may be refreshed or enhanced. Note that if you’re in an area under lockdown, this can be online or relative to your situation. Opportunities to advance or for new learning experiences can come through associates, friendships, and networking. For many, this can be a strong time for an internet business.
Potential challenges: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base and to dream up exciting new paths for the future. This can be an especially practical and useful endeavor on a material level as well with another influence (Saturn, see the Areas of Contraction section of your 2021 Preview horoscope) concurrently in this area of your chart.
Special times for this transit include January when your unique outlook attracts success, positivity, and popularity. Healing yourself on multiple levels (physical, emotional, and spiritual) can figure strongly. In February, more opportunities to make valuable, meaningful, and useful connections abound. Improving your communications and approachability is part of this–getting on top of your quickness to respond to others and willingness to reach out can be especially important. You could lose this magic too easily as the year advances, so watch for this tendency to close yourself off.
At the same time, there can be some uncertainties with money and/or feelings of security that affect your friendships and happiness pursuits in January. It becomes much easier to sort this out as the year advances.
It’s interesting to note that these very areas of life where you can expect expansion are also subject to an influence that contracts and simplifies, outlined in the Areas of Contraction section of the 2021 Aries Preview Horoscope. Rather than canceling each other out, these counteractive influences can help you achieve a fabulous balance. You may very well enjoy your newfound self-discipline or simplification in these life departments.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
Aries Quick Take: You’re focusing on happiness goals, making your dreams come true, and becoming more involved while Jupiter is in Aquarius.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, Jupiter climbs to the top of your solar chart. Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation are blossoming, developing, and growing. Your talents and skills are recognized in wonderful ways, and in ways that you haven’t experienced for at least the last twelve years. All of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and is rewarded – or at the very least, recognized. This influence is in play much of 2021, having started in December 2020.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle.
Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood. While Jupiter bestows gifts, these can be wasted if we go to great excess. Because Jupiter, which rules expansion, is in Saturn’s sign, which rules contraction, it’s best not to go overboard. Saturn is concurrently in the same place in your solar chart, and its influence is to help keep you in check!
This can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition. For the most part, this progress supports inner growth and healing, particularly evident in January. However, tensions between your strong desire for personal independence and freedom this year and your simultaneous urge to pursue your ambitions are most likely to also occur in January. Avoiding taking on too much will be vital for keeping things in check.
With this transit, there are several possible scenarios that depend on your particular situation (whether this is about career, life path, authority, responsibility, or a turning point or peak). Your hard work and effort can be recognized now. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. It can be a time when you take great pride in the work you do.
For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. Your reputation may be enhanced in some significant way. Certainly, you have more faith in your dreams and aspirations during this period of your life.
This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities for you. For the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. You’re in a period in which you find considerably more joy in your work or feel particularly good about where you’re heading.
You might also be managing others’ money, talents, or resources in some manner during this trend. You are especially intuitive, strategic, and smart with plans at this time, helping you advance towards your goals.
Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award, or marriage — something official.
This can be a time for coming into the limelight in a significant way. Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so be sure to work it!
Something might happen or circumstances are such that your career (or professional interests in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. Either way, it’s a move for the better in your mind.
Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet!
There can be a chance to clinch a project or job or to handle a particular responsibility. There can be a career peak of sorts happening now.
Interestingly, while this influence encourages you to expand, grow, and reach for the stars in the areas of career and responsibility, you’ll see that another theme in your life, explored in the Areas of Contraction section of the 2021 Taurus Horoscope Preview, encourages the opposite. This can help you come to a productive balance. Ideally, you don’t swing between expanding and contracting. Instead, you come to a good balance!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure are set to grow and expand. You’re likely to feel more courageous and spirited as you sense that there is more “out there” for you to learn and take in. This transit is a happy one, although it can seem subtle since it runs so smoothly!
This is a time in your life when you don’t sweat the small stuff as much as you normally do. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported so that smaller inconveniences don’t stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is notable during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle, outlined in your 2021 Gemini Preview Horoscope, that puts your career on center stage. You’ll want to be prepared!
Your views on life in a broad sense are changing, growing, and maturing. Connections with faraway cultures, people, or a broader knowledge base can open up personal growth opportunities. Teaching and sharing knowledge can be in strong focus. It’s a good time for publishing, writing, and media.
You might consider fine-tuning your talents and skills with higher education or experience during this cycle.
New learning experiences as well as “life” experiences (adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Typically, travel is included with these things, but when virus restrictions are in place, then armchair travel or learning can be the focus.
During the months of this transit, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other interesting studies. This transit comes in steps this year, lasting until mid-May and then resuming from late July to late December.
This can be a time when you make friends in faraway places or who have vastly different backgrounds or perspectives than you and who enrich your life during this empowering cycle. You’re likely to enjoy opportunities to expand your experiences and to impress others. Education can be transformative now, leading to important opportunities.
Since Jupiter is your partnership ruler and is now transiting the sector of your solar chart that rules foreign experiences, expansion, transportation, education, and expanding your horizons, you may enjoy a travel companion (if appropriate only) or meet someone special through these activities.
Interestingly, at the same time as this expansive influence on these areas of life, a contracting influence occurs, as outlined in the Areas of Contraction section of the 2021 Gemini Preview. Ideally, rather than swinging between growing and limiting these life departments, you’ll come to a fine balance.
You may get the chance to solidify studies, a publishing deal, or another substantial matter. It can be a time for specializing or learning something practical and useful for some. Take advantage of your discipline and common sense at this time. It’s a potentially powerful time for you to get your life on track or to launch a new, practical initiative.
Friendships might emerge as you discuss politics, beliefs, or interesting topics, particularly in January and February. Valuable connections can be made now. You can have a stronger than usual urge to be included. Your genuine, sincere approach wins you positive attention. Joining in some way with people with whom you share similar interests can figure strongly and generate warm, happy feelings.
You have more faith in your abilities to build bridges. Studies or experiences now contribute much to your personal growth.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar ninth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, there is a wonderful, refreshing focus on your private world or intimate life – a possible deepening of a relationship, or an increased understanding of your inner workings. This can be a boost in your relationship with yourself!
Your intimate life enlarges and expands, bringing you more joy and new discoveries. During this cycle, you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered. There may be more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
This influence is with you for much of the year 2021, with the exception of the dates May 13-July 28, and for the most part until December 2021. It’s time to grab opportunities that help you to feel empowered and on top of your life. Conversations are deep and lead to fruitful discoveries. Sexuality is richer.
There can be benefits and support coming your way through or from others, whether it’s a refund, an easier time getting loans or mortgages, a partner’s income increases or you inherit something valuable. Combining your resources, talents, and/or money with those of a partner can improve your financial outlook. You might also benefit from managing others’ resources and talents without the “teaming up” part.
These matters can relate to your work, routines, or health pursuits since Jupiter rules these affairs in your solar chart. There may be a metamorphosis of sorts related to your job. Research, healing, or managing others’ resources can figure strongly in your work this year. Or, the work you do can transform your lifestyle in a major way.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support. Be wise when/if lending and borrowing.’
In January, particularly, there can be challenges between pursuing your intimate world and your social life.
Otherwise, it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your emotional depths. This is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological problems.
While there can be some reality checks at times during this cycle, you have added self-discipline and you’re prepared to get things sorted in these areas of life.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eighth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your relationships receive a boost of forward-moving energy. This cycle that lasts for the most part until December 2021 helps you succeed in a partnership or improve your relationship status/situation.
Your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation continue to improve, grow, or expand. New partnership opportunities can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges. Relationships entered into now are generally successful and happy — they are mutually beneficial.
Sometimes, this transit absolves an existing partnership, but if this is the case, it is likely to come as a relief, or it is a “blessing in disguise.” Meeting someone better for you at this point in your life may be a reason for this, although it’s important not to jump into something new blindly. Your ability to get along with others is enhanced as you are especially willing to compromise, and you are more appealing than usual.
The positive potentials of this transit are many: You can negotiate more successfully, and, if applicable, win in legal matters. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past can be resolved, and more casual disputes can be settled amicably as well. You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from same.
Good publicity may come your way. If your career has you working with or before the public, you can safely expect increased popularity now, particularly if you do counseling or negotiating in your job. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, difficult relationships may be absolved, and/or successful new ones are entered into during this period.
Jupiter rules your sector of creativity, romance, recreation, leisure, and hobbies. Any of these things can be strongly tied with partnerships during this time. For example, a romantic or business partnership could form through leisure activities. This can be a time of expressing yourself more creatively through a relationship, or when others encourage you to express yourself. For some of you, social activities are strongly associated with a partnership. A partnership may strengthen as you enjoy yourself more frequently or pursue a creative venture together.
This can also be a time when shared beliefs, interests, and ideologies are a focal point in a close relationship. For some, a significant person comes into your life with common educational goals or belief systems, possibly through long-distance connections, schools, or publishing/online activities. For many of you, you attract people who want to help, who are on your side, and who take a strong interest in you.
Potential negatives:You may attract partners who are more concerned with freedom than with pairing, or who seem to be quite extravagant or full of themselves. There could be troubles associated with an existing partner’s extravagance or demand for freedom.
There can be times when your wavering or erratic approach to life goals can clash with your relationship goals this year. There can be some conflict between the demands of a partnership and the demands of a career.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life during this cycle. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with an important “other.” Interestingly, in 2021, Saturn is in the same area of your chart throughout the period when Jupiter is here. Jupiter expands and Saturn contracts, and in many ways, these energies are opposite in nature. However, they can also inspire you to make things happen–very useful, practical, and beneficial things! Alliances might be made, and partnering matters are strong, committed, clear, and beneficial. The realization of a goal may seem more possible through collaboration or through the support of a special person in your life.
The very areas of life that are expanding this year are also contracting. Ideally, you come to a good balance between the two. A partnership may form that is also practical in the year ahead, or for some, a difficult relationship irons out or ends, and this can feel right to you.
There can be a real learning experience with someone with whom you can bounce ideas off and come to a better understanding of how you define yourself. Learning about the world around you through the eyes of a special person–or through other one-to-one relationships, such as clients–is a pleasing theme in 2021, especially in January.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar seventh house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your work, daily routines, and health endeavors are set to expand, improve, and grow. This is a time when your work projects or duties expand, or you have increased opportunities for employment.
You can be so confident in your ability to take on projects and endeavors, however, that you overload your plate, so do watch for that. Even so, Saturn’s concurrent transit can help keep you in line and productive. This influence is with you for the most part until December 2021.
This influence can play out in a variety of ways depending on your current situation. You find more joy in your work (as long as you don’t overload), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to prosper, largely because you’re enjoying it more. You are especially successful in hiring people to work for you, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. It can be easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle or significantly improve an existing one.
Work tends to be very available to you! You can be very focused on what really matters to get ahead, and recognition for your efforts may be forthcoming.
You are proud of how useful you are to others during this cycle. The more integrity and honesty you bring to your services, the more “payback” you will receive. Health may very well prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, can be more successful than usual.
You are bringing fresh and original ideas to the work you do and the services you offer. Nevertheless, overload or the magnification of problems surrounding work can be experienced during this cycle. There is a tendency now to focus on the details of your work, and you might sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with monotonous tasks. There may be an inclination to put on some weight during this period, but watching for a tendency to indulge can help. Neglecting health can cancel out the potential benefits.
Your work might involve more services or the assisting of others during this cycle, and for some, health-related or healing professions can be attractive at this time.
Challenges may occur sporadically during this period with the need for time away from your duties either to take care of yourself or of others requiring care, or the consequences of taking on so much that you have trouble taking time for yourself.
However, for the most part, this is a good time for winning appreciation for what you do or for your skills, enjoying what you do, for finding work, and for working relationships. Something interesting happens with Jupiter and Saturn both in your work and health sector. While Jupiter expands, Saturn contracts. It’s a time of quite a bit of ambition, common sense, and the ability to materialize your plans. It’s a powerful time for getting started on a healthy lifestyle change or to discipline yourself to get a job done, and done well!
Home and family may be closely tied to work and health during this period, which can mean you are joining with the family to improve health, working from home, bringing more organization or order to your home, or other such connections.
Interestingly, these areas of expansion are also subject to contraction (per the Areas of Contraction section of your 2021 Preview Horoscope). These influences don’t cancel themselves out. Instead, they co-exist and they can stir up some wonderful productivity. You may be working hard but thoroughly enjoying it as you do!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your creative, playful, and romantic side is set to expand and grow. This is a powerful time for self-expression, new forms of entertainment, and romantic explorations.
Your romantic life can be on the unusual and surprising side during this period. Now is the time to unwind, relax, and enjoy yourself, and it may very well be an ideal period for a special vacation or hiatus.
Your focus turns to enjoying life, having fun, and expressing yourself in freeing, rewarding ways. Your romantic and creative worlds develop, increase, and improve. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and you are more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so!
Entertainment, hobbies, and leisure activities can be more fulfilling now. Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle; or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself in unique ways, and pursue hobbies and entertainment are abundant.
Of course, it depends on your personality and current life circumstances how this influence plays out. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream. New forms of recreation can figure strongly now, and it can be exciting to explore your options.
This can be a fertile time on many levels, physically and emotionally. This influence is associated with casual dating and exploring romantic possibilities more than it is with committed connections.
The inner artist, creator, demonstrator, or teacher can emerge at this time. You experience much joy through artistic and cultural outlets. This can be a fertile time, physically and mentally. Family might expand. You’re in particularly good shape for creative writing and communications since your communications sector and creative/romantic sector are connected during this transit. It’s a powerful time for thinking and talking about your relationships, too. Many of your ideas are creatively oriented. It can be a special time for writing, speaking, and connecting through the power of words.
This enhancing, supportive influence is with you for many months — for a good chunk of the time from December 2020 until December 2021 (except for May 13 to July 28, 2021).
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. Throughout this transit, you may need to come to a balance between attention to work and health routines and attention to romantic and creative needs.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this cycle. You might make a happy commitment to a project or to improving your life. It’s a wonderful time to monetize or solidify a hobby.
Interestingly, these very areas of life that are set to expand are the same areas set to contract (see Areas of Contraction section of your 2021 Preview Horoscope). These opposite influences don’t act to cancel the individual influences out. Instead, they coexist and you may get a chance to blend them to your benefit. This can be a productive time when hunkering down or committing can be joyful.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fifth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, you enjoy an influence that boosts your personal life, family, or home experience. This Jupiter influence lasts for much of the period from December 2020 to December 2021 (with the exception of May 13 to July 28, 2021).
Depending on your personality and unique circumstances, this transit can manifest in a variety of ways:
You are more confident about your family, living arrangements, and living conditions. While this is a rather domestic transit, relationships with anyone you feel especially connected with emotionally can benefit.
You are comfortable with your position, and you may be building loving and secure connections with others.
There can be special attention to the comfort and beauty of your home or a stronger desire to connect with your roots. There is a stronger ability to bounce back from problems.
Your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements expand and grow. Relations with family can be especially pleasant and supportive. You might move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or expand real estate holdings. Some of you can get a mortgage or support that allows you to expand your home base.
The family itself can expand, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate for example, or bring more friends to their home. Others might pool resources with a partner and move in together. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized if that is something that makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life.
Because Jupiter is the natural ruler of your solar second house of resources, you may be investing more money or resources into improving your home or family life during this trend. Homelife may be more comfortable, and you can be quite security-conscious at this time in your life. In some cases, there can be income related to home products and the home itself, or working in/from the home.
Generally speaking, positive energy is brought to your domestic world, and long-standing problems with family might be put behind you.
Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or larger accommodations that are beyond your means.
Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle. Relationships with family can improve significantly now, although pre-existing problems might be magnified initially.
This can be a good time to set up a home business or for home studies. On a more psychological level, confidence in yourself and feelings of security increase during this period.
Potential problems: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities may be a problem from time to time. You may be wanting to please too many people, and overdoing things leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs.
There can be issues, at times, when your need for emotional or psychic space interferes in a close relationship, or family and partnership can be draining you as they seem to clash at times, most likely in January. In early 2021, erratic experiences or ups and downs in your relationship world could impact your basic sense of security.
However, this influence overlaps with one that is mentioned in the Areas of Contraction section of your 2021 Preview Horoscope that helps stabilize you. You want to improve these areas of life, and it seems the best way to do so, with this concurrent influence, is to simplify. You can do some hard work getting things straightened out, but you find some joy in so doing. The desire to improve your life from the very base is compelling now.
For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. This is a time of nest-feathering. It’s a strong time for psychotherapy and purging as you are willing to look at the root of problems. It’s also a good time for long-term financial planning and strengthening your financial picture.
There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, especially through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors. This is a time of working hard on or around the home, but you’re enjoying yourself as you do!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fourth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your communications and mental outlook improve. You do especially well as a messenger of sorts during this period, as you do more learning, educating, spreading ideas, disseminating information, communicating, and facilitating communication between others.
You can experience a stronger desire to reach others through your ideas. Others find you particularly amusing, informative, and pleasant to be around. The thing to watch is that you might be tempted to diversify too much, which can lead to accomplishing little or being too scattered. Kept in check, however, and you’re in great shape. There can be gains through short journeys, siblings, writing, ideas, promotion, or mental interests.
You’re ready to take on big projects. Your confidence in the future is very strong during this cycle that is with you for much of 2021 (with the exception of May 13 to July 28, 2021, and then the last few days of the year).
During this transit, your communications increase and expand. Your ability and desire to express yourself are greater now, and your personal interests grow. Good fortune with vehicles, transportation, through siblings, and with the communications industry can be experienced during this cycle.
You are more perceptive, and others are more receptive to your ideas. New opportunities to communicate can open up to you. This can be a busy period for learning.
Potential problems: Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. Do your best not to overload your plate. There can be a real tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits regarding time and energy.Taking on too many projects or becoming too entrenched in details can cause problems.
Particularly in January, you might feel a bit overwhelmed as your daily affairs can feel chaotic if you’re paying attention to too many things. You might also suffer from information overload at times.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle that colors most of 2021. You could feel especially driven to pursue your personal interests. It’s a time for practical application, particularly if you tap into a concurrent transit outlined in the Areas of Contraction section of your horoscope.
You might find that you travel less and that you are busier locally (this would be the case even if there weren’t global restrictions). Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is the way you express yourself. In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and your general attitude or mindset.
There can be important opportunities that emerge through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. If you’ve had problems with siblings or neighbors, they could be put to rest now, although they might magnify initially in order for problem areas to come out into the open and finally be resolved. If applicable, you might return to school or take some courses.
There can be increased communications with siblings, classmates, and peers in general during this period. You could be finding that transportation options now available make life a little more enjoyable, or communication channels open up to you that expand your experience.
You’re pouring more of yourself and your personality into your personal interests, projects, connections, and communications during this phase.
Interestingly, these areas of life in which you’re expanding overlap with the Areas of Contraction influence outlined in your Sagittarius 2021 Preview Horoscope. While they are opposite influences, this doesn’t cancel the influences out! Instead, these transits coexist. You may be able to blend them successfully. In fact, this can be a powerfully ambitious and positive time when you find joy in working hard at your studies or personal interests, perfecting your communications or a project, and learning or sharing ideas and information.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar third house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, you’re focusing on building, developing, and enjoying yourself. Money, personal possessions, valuables, and self-worth are set to expand, increase, improve, and grow.
Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more! Or, this can be a time when you’re committing to more personal enjoyment and settling in.
This is a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You are likely to make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period. This can be a time when imaginative undertakings boost your income.
You might enjoy a lifestyle that’s quite comfortable, and even lavish at times. You can feel protected against financial distress during this trend. With your faith and vision for the future, you’re developing more patience that helps your investments and projects grow.
This cycle influences your life for the most part until December 2021 (with the exception of May 13 to July 28, 2021). It’s strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. Financial increase is quite possible, or there can be improved financial conditions. Still, you should certainly watch for overspending or taking things too much for granted.
Potential difficulties: Be on the alert for an attitude towards money that is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this practice can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might end up taking foolish risks, such as borrowing too much from your future. Watch for over-indulgence, and be extra careful/cautious if lending or borrowing.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work. You have a concurrent influence, outlined in the Areas of Contraction section of the Capricorn 2021 Preview Horoscope, that helps to counteract the difficult potentials of this influence. Aim to tap into self-discipline if you want to realize a goal or dream related to money, things, talents, and personal income.
Perhaps most importantly during this time, your relationship with money and resources is changing. Your sense of abundance can evolve as well, as you see more value in what you have or you identify things that are no longer boosting your sense of security.
How you view your earning power, natural talents, and relationship with money can improve and change.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, Jupiter is in your sign! This transit comes only every twelve years and serves to bring you out of your shell. You’re ready to take on the world!
This is a time for exploring your needs and pursuing your dreams. Your personality, image, body image, and confidence in yourself expand to new levels with Jupiter in your sign for the most part from December 2020 to December 2021 (with the exception of May 13-July 28, 2021). You see whole new possibilities, and your vision of life is panoramic.
If you’ve done your inner work well while Jupiter was transiting your solar twelfth house from December 2019 to December 2020, this new cycle can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world grows exponentially.
Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without the necessary attention to responsibilities.
You are more willing to enjoy new experiences and to rid yourself of those things that have been holding you back from truly living and owning your life. You’re looking ahead!
There can be new projects begun now that have long-term potential. You may not yet know where you’re headed with them, but you’re certainly enthusiastic about beginning anew. Keep in mind that this marks the beginning stage of a 12-year overall cycle. You might begin anew or recommit to an endeavor that’s important to you.
Expanding your horizons through higher learning or new experiences might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue.
This is also a strong time for friendships, community, happiness goals, networking, inventiveness, internet business, and your social life. A benefactor or a good friendship can figure strongly. Jupiter is the natural ruler of the eleventh house in your solar chart.
This influence comes at the same time as a Saturn transit to your sign so that there may be some restrictions or buckling down involved with these areas of life as well. There is generally good energy for bringing more structure and simplicity to your life. This influence can help you to actualize dreams, as Jupiter and Saturn working together can help bring plans to life.
You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (this depends on your circumstances or stage of life; for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, from which you are now enjoying some level of freedom), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You won’t feel like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. This can happen on a mental level instead (or as well). Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases.
You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others, and you’re considerably more confident about expressing the playful, creative, and fun side of your personality.
Potential problems: Excesses of food and drink, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness, and extravagances, in general, are possibilities to watch for. See to it that these things don’t detract from an otherwise excellent period. As well, with your desire to start over, watch that you don’t blind yourself to some of your responsibilities or throw something worthwhile away.
There might also be times when others feel threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence, when your personal desires are greater than your means, or when you have troubles with self-discipline, budgets, and limits. Fortunately, it’s easier than usual for you to keep these things in check due to a concurrent influence interpreted in the section, Areas of Contraction in the Aquarius 2021 Preview Horoscope. You are less likely to waste your time or pass over the opportunities that emerge. You are especially productive, ambitious, and effective. You can find much pleasure and joy in exercising more self-discipline and initiative. Your efforts to discipline yourself or structure your life can be satisfying and rewarding.
This can be a time of great opportunity. You might choose to pursue a new channel for self-expression or mental interest with great passion. There can be a strong sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions. Friends or networks can inspire you to find yourself or express yourself. You might be defining yourself through your dreams, plans, and causes.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
From December 19, 2020, to May 13, 2021, and July 28-December 28, 2021, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. This is a period for looking within and learning of your inner strength. It’s also a time for appreciating some level of solitude.
Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve – a cycle that lasts for the most part until December 2021 when Jupiter moves on and into your sign and you are ready to share yourself more fully with the world. Note that Jupiter will enter Pisces before this date for several weeks in 2021 (May 13-July 28, 2021) but will return to the sign behind yours to finish up its transit until December 2021.
This is generally a warm, protective cycle, although with Jupiter in the background in your chart, there may be some sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest, or that your joy in life is not as obvious to others.
With increased activity in the sector of your chart that rules private matters, anonymity, healing, and endings, this is one of the more withdrawn, reflective periods of your life. You may be exploring the hidden elements of life or developing your spirituality now.
You are especially and more notably compassionate and empathetic. This can be a powerful period for volunteer work, or for work done behind the scenes, in private, or in the helping professions.
Potential challenges:Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have trouble facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments and to surrender to the unknown.
Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. There can be some strains on mental and physical health.
There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
Still, for the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices increases, and you can build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others.
Your career may involve work behind the scenes or an otherwise hidden theme. You may be in a processing or hatching stage with a venture. This can be a time of some lack of recognition or discretion, or you’re simply functioning as the power behind the throne. Investigations, research, volunteer work, counseling, consultation, medicine, support, and psychology can be beneficial pursuits at this time.
Interestingly, another influence on the very same areas of life, outlined in the Areas of Contraction section of the Pisces 2021 Horoscope, is a contracting influence. This means that you can reach a wonderful balance. With self-discipline, you find more joy and confidence. This can be a time for working on a project in advance of a launch date or for putting a long-term project behind you.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from December 19, 2020, to May 13th, 2021, and then from October 18th to December 28th, 2021.
