Planetary snapshot
In 2021, Saturn will remain in your 7th house of Capricorn which represents marriage, relationships and business partnerships. Rahu (North node of moon) will transit your 11th house of earnings, hopes and aspirations, higher learning’s; Ketu (south node of the moon) will be in the 5th house of Scorpio to do with self esteem, romance, children and study. Jupiter will come out of its sign of debilitation on 5th April and move away from your 7th house and into your 8th house of transformation and unexpected changes, which will be positive. It will then move back to your 7th house of Capricorn in September 14th where it is again debilitated; it then will make its third and final transit of this year back into Aquarius your 8th house, on the 20th November.

Mars is lord of your 5th and 10th house of romance, study and career. It is also the yogakaraka (lucky planet) for Cancer signs and therefore you may be adversely impacted during its debilitation when it dips into the sign of Cancer between 2nd June to 20th July. Be cautious of relationships with others in the workplace and try not to get into petty disputes or confrontations. In romantic relationships, curb your tongue and avoid lashing out when you are frustrated. This can be a period where frustration is high and anger needs to managed, step back, make time for yourself, seek help if necessary. Be patient the period will pass.

Mercury retrogrades thrice this year. As mercury rules the 3rd and 12th house, you may feel your energy and usual enthusiasm is depleted. Build your immunity, exercise, vitamins and natural sunlight will be beneficial to your health. Make time for yourself, meditation and grounding will be beneficial. Key periods to watch out for mercury retrograde are: Jan 30th- Feb 21st, May 29th – June 22nd, sept 27th – Oct 18th, and the mercury debilitation when it will be in Pisces your 9th house (31st March – 16th April).

Venus will be closely associated with the Sun and therefore ‘combust’ or ‘ast’ between the Jan 25th – April 23rd. As Venus is the lord of your 4th and 11th house, you may find that you are dissatisfied with your hopes and aspirations regarding family. Try to appreciate this may just be to do with practicality of situations and not a reflection of their lack of love for you. Perceptions are sensitive in this period, be practical as opposed to overly emotional. This is a time to take control and realise you are more than capable of getting through this ‘unplanned period’. Ride this time out, do not make any big decisions relating to relationships yet. This also applies for the period between 11th Aug – 15th Sept when Venus is debilitated in Virgo.

Career & Finance

Changes on the job front have already been surfacing over the past year, and you may find that you are starting to acclimatise to being outside your comfort zone into the beginning of this new year. There may be more changes to your job which will be positive in the long run. More responsibility and a change of department or location cannot be ruled out. You may be feeling a sense of dissatisfaction at the start of the year as Jupiter remains debilitated with Saturn opposite your sign but this will start to ease after March.
With Rahu (North node of the moon) in the 11th house of earnings, there can be fluctuations in income. Any rise in earnings may be accompanied by additional and unexpected expenditures on home and property investments. Be cautious with spending habits and don’t get carried away with purchases.

With Saturn in your 7th house of marriage and relationships, there continues to be a feeling of distance between loved ones. You may feel a disconnect and that your partner doesn’t understand you. There can be increased arguments on topics relating to money and residence. With Ketu (south node of the moon) also transiting the 5th house of romance, you may find there is an increasing distance with your partner or that you both are too busy for each other. Try to deal with this by making time for each other and communicating adequately. Try to be balanced, and listen to the other side not just emphasising what you want, but giving consideration to your partner’s point of view too. It is important for you to see the bigger picture and appreciate the current situations that are at hand, and revise your expectations accordingly; else there is the risk of a separation. If you are single, there are good chances of meeting a significant other as Saturn the lord of your relationships is in a good position to find a partner. However the Ketu in the romance house will cause a lot of confusion so try to keep an open mind and get advice from those that are close to you. You are likely to meet someone from a different background to you and potentially with a significant age difference.

Stress related ailments can take their course throughout the year so take necessary steps to make time for yourself, relax and take up some physical exercise that you enjoy. Things are likely to get very busy between June and end of July when Mars will be debilitated in your sign causing you to be overworked. Build your immunity and maintain vitality. Take care of your digestion. Chronic health conditions can see a flare up in this period. You may suffer back pain and leg problems this year on and off.


Study needs attention this year. You are likely to be distracted causing a lack of focus on your subjects. Saturn opposite your sign and Ketu in 5th house of study is going to cause issues with concentration. You must work hard and put efforts to maintain good study habits. A disciplined and structured approach is a must, else you run the risk of wasting time and not achieving your set goals. Make short study sessions with clear targets. You will not be able to sit and revise for long periods. You need short burst of revision which will be more productive for you. Take on some side hobby so you have a means for motivation. If you can indulge in meditation and mantra recitation this will be advantageous to your success.
