Planetary snapshot
In 2021, Saturn will remain in your 8th house of Capricorn which represents transformation, other people’s money, inheritance, health, accidents/injury, unexpected happenings. Rahu (North node of moon) will transit your 12th house of isolation, introspection, foreign ventures and sleep; Ketu (south node of the moon) will be in the 6th house of Scorpio to do with work environment, debt, enemies and self confidence. Jupiter will come out of its sign of debilitation on 5th April and move away from your 8th house and into your 9th house of good luck, wealth, fortune, higher learning, wisdom and spirituality. It will then move back to your 8th 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 9th house, on the 20th November.

Mars is lord of your 6th and 11th house of work environment and earnings 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. Be patient and mindful of the longer term consequences.

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 5th and 12th house, you may find you are unsatisfied when it comes to love relationships.
