Planetary snapshot

In 2021, Saturn will remain in your 5th house of Capricorn which represents confidence, romance, study and children. Rahu (North node of moon) will transit your 9th house of good luck, higher learning’s, wisdom; Ketu (south node of the moon) will be in the 3rd house of Scorpio to do confidence, efforts and respiratory system. Jupiter will come out of its sign of debilitation on 5th April and move away from your 5th house and into your 6th house work environment, which will be positive. It will then move back to your 5th 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 6th house, on the 20th November.

Mars is lord of your 3rd and 8th house, therefore you need to manage your work life balance so that you are able to take care of your health. You may be adversely impacted during its debilitation when it dips into the sign of Cancer between 2nd June to 20th July. Do not overwork yourself, make time for breaks. If you feel there is any health concern do not ignore and get the right advice from the appropriate healthcare practitioner. You may be prone to sudden accident or injuries in this period.

Mercury retrogrades thrice this year. These periods are significant for you as Mercury is the ruler of your chart. You may feel restless and unsettled, feeling impatient which leads to arguments with others. Be patient as you may particularly sensitive and impatient around the times of the retrograde so careful this does not come across in a negative way where you have to revisit issues. 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 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 the lord of your 2nd and 9th house, you may find yourself attracted to big money making schemes. This is not a bad thing, but avoid making any big investments in these periods. If this cannot be avoided then ensure you carry out the proper due diligence. This also applies for the period between 11th Aug – 15th Sept when Venus is debilitated in Virgo.

Career and Finance
The year starts with Sun and mercury looking directly at your house of career. This indicates new opportunities on the job and business front are there for your taking providing you make efforts and be confident. Saturn in the 5th will give you new ideas of what you want to achieve, don’t be afraid to plan ahead, but be SMART when you do. You will find things are clearer from April onwards and that you feel more satisfied with how things are shaping. Rahu in your 9th house can sometimes make you feel like you want to run before you can walk, so be realistic in your goals and don’t trap yourself with unrealistic expectations. Ketu in your efforts zone indicates you may not initially be recognised for your efforts as much as you had hoped but subtly singing your own praises to be noticed can help.
There are chances of some change in location whether that is work or residential. June/July may cause some expenditure related to investment or renovation works, it can be something that causes concern so make sure you are careful with who/what you spend your money on.

You may feel that you are not getting enough quality time with your partner, only you can change that so try to make efforts and get the spark back. It is a positive time for love matters so try to appreciate the small things. IF you are single, there are good opportunities to meet a significant other this year, try to be open minded. You are likely to meet a partner that is from a different background to you. Periods to watch out for are the mercury debilitation which will occur between end of March and middle of April. As Mercury is the ruler of your chart, when it is debilitated you may feel slightly lost or unsatisfied with general life, but try to be aware of these energies and keep a good routine at home to pass the time positively. Mercury retrogrades can also cause arguments between loved ones and these periods are Jan 30-Feb 21st, May 29th – June 22nd, Sept 27th – Oct 18th. So be prepared and try not to rise to petty conflicts, keep the peace.

With Ketu (south node of the moon) transiting your 3rd house, you may be prone to chest/respiratory ailments throughout the year, so maintain good diet and exercise and build your immunity. You may also have some neck shoulder injury or condition that flares up. Make time for yourself, you often bottle things up so relaxation through meditation, calming music or exercise will be beneficial.

It is your own lack of confidence that may hold you back. If you have a structured and disciplined approach then you can do very well. Saturn in the study zone of your chart can cause distraction and lack of concentration, therefore try to maintain a good study discipline and follow your schedule. Without this approach you may not get the results you desire. 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.
