2021 love, money, and career forecast according to your astrological sign

By Sarah May Low

Pat yourself on the back for surviving 2020! Healing, change, and hard work are the main themes of 2021. Many people will build or rebuild new foundations in their lives. Many would feel brave to go out of their comfort zone as they would feel inspired to pursue something new—business, knowledge, relationships, social circles, hobbies, and skills.

As we have recently moved into the Age of Aquarius, the sign that will see the most progress and growth in 2021 is Aquarius. They will experience a lot of tension initially, but as long as they continue to step it up and take on more tasks, ultimately for them, it will be a really satisfying year. Other fixed signs such as Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio will also experience identical growth. The new year is the perfect way to start an online enterprise, and job or career development looks best for earth signs—Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus in particular. There’s a desire for every astrology sign to get a fresh start in all aspect of their life; hence, it would be a pleasant year to take a chance, be adventurous, and do something totally new.

In 2021, Saturn spends the entire year in the Aquarius sign, while Jupiter splits the position between the Aquarius and Pisces signs. Uranus and Pluto are continuing both their transits of the Taurus and Capricorn Earth signs, respectively. This year’s eclipses are mainly in the Gemini and Sagittarius signs, although in Taurus, there is one eclipse at the end of 2021.
