In 2021, Saturn will remain in your 3rd house of Capricorn which represents efforts, confidence and siblings. Rahu (North node of moon) will transit your 7th house of marriage, relationships and business partnerships; Ketu (south node of the moon) will be in your sign which will bring transformation. Jupiter will come out of its sign of debilitation on 5th April and move away from your 3rd house and into your 4th house of family and property, which will be positive. It will then move back to your 3rd 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 4th house, on the 20th November.
Mars is your ruler and therefore a significant planet for you. You may be adversely impacted during its debilitation when it dips into the sign of Cancer between 2nd June to 20th July. You may feel frustrated and need to manage your temper. Avoid being over dominating and possessive. Stay away from negative energy, be diplomatic and calm yourself. You may suffer from increased anxiety in this period so it is important to make time for yourself, meditate, keep healthy.
Mercury retrogrades thrice this year. Mercury rules your 8th and 11th house, you may have unexpected expenses that crop up relating to family. There may be expenses to do with property or penalties around unsatisfactory applications. Ensure you don’t take short cuts as you may have to revisit tasks later. 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 (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 your ruler, it will be natural for you to feel unsettled or mildly dissatisfied in this period. You need to balance your expectations in all areas of your life. Plans may change but you need to be open to this and embrace the changes, they can be positive. It is your own fixed mindset that will hold you back if you don’t evolve as you need to.

You may have changes in your existing role which mean you are given more responsibility but the remuneration is not to your liking.
You will have to be thick skinned with the people you work with as there can be issues with the people you work with, employees, senior managers or other authority figures. If you are feeling undermined by people who feel jealoused of you, stand up for yourself and try to settle things amicably, and quickly.

There can be separation for more practical reasons such as work reasons, other family commitments. There will be an improvement in the second half of the year but that is subject to how you manage your perceptions and mindset in the first half.
