Planetary snapshot
In 2021, Saturn will remain in your 9th house of Capricorn which represents good luck, wealth, fortune, higher learning, wisdom and spirituality. Rahu (North node of moon) will transit your sign and this will bring many changes in your thinking; Ketu (south node of the moon) will be in the 7th house of Scorpio to do with Marriage and relationships, business partnerships. Jupiter will come out of its sign of debilitation on 5th April and move away from your 9th house and into your 10th house of career. It will then move back to your 9th 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 10th house, on the 20th November.

Mars rules your 7th and 12th house and therefore you may be adversely impacted during its debilitation when it dips into the sign of Cancer between 2nd June to 20th July. There may be unexpected interference from others in relationships, you may suffer financial loss. There can be issues with existing legal issues that are ongoing. Avoid airing your private matters to others in this period as you run the risk of getting advice that has a negative influence in your family matters. Try to be cautious when it comes to legal matters and dealings with people in authority. 

Mercury retrogrades thrice this year. Being the lord of your 2nd and 5th house, you may find that you are confused with key decisions that involve money. You may either avoid making a decision or delay yourself because you want things to be perfect. Make sure this tact doesn’t lead to you then having to rush into meeting deadlines unprepared. 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 12th 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 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. This also applies for the period between 11th Aug – 15th Sept when Venus is debilitated in Virgo, relationships will need attention, be patient and understanding.

Career and Finances
Career wise this is going to be a time where you are questioning your own abilities and performance. You will feel you deserve more than what you are getting and this will make you want to search for new opportunities. However for the first quarter of the year it will be difficult to find something better and you may get frustrated in the process. I would advise you to see the bigger picture and keep patient when searching. You may have changes in your existing role where you are given more responsibility.
Word of caution: with Rahu (the north node of the moon) in your sign, there can be issues with the people you work with, employees, senior managers or other authority figures. There can be an element of back biting and can cause a toxic environment where you may feel you are being undermined. Be strong and confident and try not to take it personally, instead put together an action plan on how to deal with such situations. Astrological remedies at the time may help things.


This will be a time where you need to exert patience in relationships. Ketu (south node of the moon) in your 7th house of marriage and relationships indicates that there can be a level of disharmony and frustration caused by clashes in egos and expectations. Ketu is a shadow planet which makes a person feel like something is missing and that no one understands them. Try to hit this statement on the head by making time for your partner and listening to what they want aswell as what you expect from them. Try to appreciate the good things and do not compare your basket to others. Mars starts the year in your 12th house which means there is a potential for other people to influence your relationship, so avoid letting other people make decisions for you. For those that are on tricky ground it is a time where you may decide to have a break and have some time to yourself. 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. For those that are single, there are chances of meeting someone new, however there can be a lot of confusion as to whether they are right for you. Try to think practically before getting emotionally involved, you need to be comfortable with the differences as the person you are likely to attract will have a different background to yours.

Look after your diet and avoid binging on junk food, you are prone to break outs and other skin ailments especially up to end of March where your ruler Venus is combust. Try to increase your activity and build your immune system with the necessary vitamin/minerals supplementation to avoid being under the weather in the period between June 2nd and July 20th when Mars the planet of vitality will be debilitated in your 3rd house relating to breathing, chest related ailments. You may find that you have issues with the neck area and some muscle injury cannot be ruled out. Seek the advice of appropriate healthcare practioner as necessary.


You will do well this year in studies provided you have a structured approach. Saturn in the 9th house of higher education indicates that you may struggle to concentrate at times and this is why short bursts of revision and practical learning will be more beneficial for you. Set yourself a short time span for study with clear objectives of what you want to cover. Long study sessions with open syllabus and no clear approach will not work this year. Manage frustration by having a hobby, something that you enjoy doing alongside as a reward. Adopt a mantra for meditation and try to be more spiritual, this will help concentration. You will be quite competitive this year and you may also be a bit of a detective when it comes to comparing your progress against others. Competition is good but keep it healthy.
