Virgo 2021 Overview
You are being called for a higher purpose in 2021. You have a greater focus this year now that 2020 has passed. You’ve lost a lot of ground but you’ve also had plenty of time to consider what you want to do in the coming years. The transformative process of Saturn continues as it transits your 5th house. The Sun and Mercury also make contact with Pluto in this area just as the year starts. This indicates a powerful focus on creative energies and manifesting your core competency in the coming months. Doing what you love is going to be an important foundation this year.
Frustration with Those You Work with
Mars and Saturn are in a challenging angle in January. Tremendous frustration may be experienced especially with the people you work with. This is because Saturn’s transiting your sixth house of workplace relations. With Jupiter also transiting this area of the chart a great deal of your focus is going to be on the work that you do. Unfortunately, your standards may be too high for those you are associated with. There will be a great deal of resistance to how and why you want to do things.
On January 18 Mars also makes a square aspect to Jupiter. You will be putting yourself far too hard. Others won’t keep up with you. You may decide to extend your work hours and this can affect your health. You’ve been too highly self-critical. This is the fuel that’s pushing you.
You must again give time to your inner life to maintain balance. You’re emotional about work matters which could hinder you from doing your best on the job. Approach things in a clinical, rational manner and don’t let emotion sway you. If the topics on the menu aren’t your cup of tea careful about introducing new ideas to the group.
On February 18 Saturn squares Uranus. The test for you is balancing the old with the new, the progressives with the traditional. Your value system is changing as a result of Uranus transiting in the ninth house of the horoscope. Religious beliefs at any sort of past conditioning will be blasted apart under these transits. The habit of holding on to outdated thinking is part and parcel of life. Your challenge is going to be transitioning out of those old patterns into methods of thinking, acting and living which are in keeping with where you are at now on your path.
Marriage and Long-Term Partnerships
On of May 14, a fast-moving Jupiter makes its way to your important seventh house of marriage and long-term partnerships. Jupiter tends to over inflate whatever it touches. Maybe you’ve been the one making all the efforts. You could be tired of being the one always giving so much in your relationships. You may not exactly be receiving as much in return. ‘Expectation is the mother of disappointment’.
When they say that love should be unconditional it doesn’t mean becoming a doormat. The test is to balance these two extremes -give and take. The real secret of any successful relationship is the measure by which each can support and fulfil the needs of the other. That only works when it’s a two-way street.
Jupiter doesn’t stay too long in your seventh house. It temporarily vacates while making its retrograde movement on June 21. At this point, it will move back into your sixth house of work and health issues. You need a full reappraisal of this area of your life and how it may be impacting your relationships.
Finished with This Revision
Once you’re finished with this ‘revision‘, Jupiter will move forward again added back into your seventh house. It moves direct on 18 October and finally enters your seventh house again rather than the last week of December, 29 to be exact. If you learn the lessons of love, in this next 12 months, this is a time when you will be able to fully commit and feel much better about your emotional self and most significant ‘other‘.
On May 26 a powerful lunar eclipse occurs in Sagittarius. This is your 4th house of family affairs. It will bring your attention back fairly and squarely on home matters.

There may be also some planning, scheduling changes and other routine duties that have to be postponed and reallocated. Vehicles may also be on your agenda. Servicing your car as possible. You may even have thoughts of purchasing a new one.
There is a solar eclipse on June 10. This is a powerful influence on your 10th house of career, self-esteem and reputation. You’ll be questioning your role at work. You’ll be looking at how you have developed as a person through the work that you do. There may also be issues with authority figures as the sun, the principal factor in a solar eclipse means that the light of this body is cut off. You may need to renegotiate the terms and conditions of your work. It may even be that you will leave the work that you’ve been doing and seek something far more fulfilling.
The second solar eclipse occurs on 19 November. This takes place in the ninth house of the horoscope. As mentioned briefly in the opening of your reading, this area of your horoscope relates to your belief systems, philosophy and religion.

Romance and Friendship
The fifth house, seventh house and eleventh house are the principal areas of your horoscope relating to love and romance. The planets governing these areas are Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and the Moon. Venus is the natural ruler of love and so studying its transits shed a great deal of light on how your affections will be influenced throughout 2021.
Romance Is In the Top of Your Agenda
Venus transits the fifth house on January 9. You can expect love and romance to be on the top of your agenda. Excessive sentimentality may be an emotional thread interweaving your domestic relationships as well. This is predominantly related to the fact that time doesn’t stay the same. Things are constantly changing. It would be lovely to keep things as they were but that’s not possible. Adapting yourself to change and the positive possibilities that arise out of this acceptance. It’s a wonderfully liberating thing.
Venus makes its way to your seventh house of marriage and significant partnerships on February 25. Jupiter transits the same place on May 14 and during its retrograde and forward transit will hit this same spot several times. Finally, on 29 December it will get back into a better state. Relationships and spiritual standards collide at this time. If you thought marriage was made in heaven, wait!! There are a few issues of idealism to get right first.
The Highs and Lows
You could be experiencing both highs and lows because of this. This is also to do with Saturn. Please note that there are some hard aspects from Venus to Saturn and also Venus to Neptune throughout the year. Those tough aspects occur on over 25, July 7 and September 17. These are the challenging aspects to Saturn. During these intervals, you will have to show a little more commitment to win over your partner.
The stagnant energy you feel means that romance may not be all that rosy during this cycle. Make an effort and your love life will improve considerably. You may have no hope of breaking free of a work situation which that is depleting you of energy. You may need the money but don’t appreciate the stress. Focus more clearly on the work rather than what you don’t like about it. Someone you love may become more aloof.
You want a relationship to move forward on an even keel without any unnecessary drama. You may have to ask some serious questions. You should, by all means, explore all possibilities, but if the basics aren’t solid, you’ll have a problem moving forward.
Idealism Is Not Quite Connecting with the Reality
The hard aspects of Neptune show where your idealism is not quite connecting with the reality of the situation. You’re prepared to make the necessary changes in your relationships but will find it difficult. You have to look at people fairly and squarely and not see them through your imagination. You’re also not willing to settle for less than what you believe you deserve in your love life. Your ideals will be high during these conflicting transits.
If struggles arise in your relationship it’s because you’ve been looking at your lover or spouse through rose coloured glasses. You’ve received subtle signals telling you something isn’t right but you’ve been conveniently turning a blind eye. It’s time to change that once and for all. The hard aspects of Venus to Neptune take place all unmarked 14, May 28, August 10 and October 27. Try to be more rational in your dealings on or about these dates.
Intimacy and Sexuality
One of the better transits takes place after March 22 when Venus enters your sensual eighth house. Matters of intimacy and sexuality will be the focus throughout its transit up until April 15. You might be idealising the intimacy and sexuality you share with your partner. Relationship problems can only be cleared through deep and meaningful communication, you’ll be glossing over the problem. Expect an amplification of your sexual desires. If this has been a difficult challenge in your relationship, intimacy will be reignited.
Friendship and all sorts and networking take place when Venus transits your eleventh house on June 2. You have almost a month to take full advantage of this exceptionally good transit. Don’t be too frivolous with friends as they may not take you seriously. To get your point across, take a slower, more measured approach. If you and someone are having problems of a similar nature it may be useful to pool your mental and emotional resources to come up with a creative solution.
Rendering Help Can Be a Double-Edged Sword
When Venus enters your twelfth house on the June 27th you might start to feel abused especially if you’ve been generous with someone. You’ve been giving them more time and emotional energy than they need or even deserve. Rendering help can be a double-edged sword. You realise that some people are a bottomless pit. They are incapable of knowing when to stop asking for help, or rather, taking.
Even after they have the ways and means of doing things for themselves. Perhaps it’s becoming a habit, or you’ve become a doormat- whichever way you look at it the assistance you are giving someone is not helping them better themselves. All you’re doing is creating another beggar in this already impoverished world.
The lunar eclipses are particularly important for you in matters of love. The Moon rules your 11th house of friendship. It also reflects close social bonding.

On New Year’s Day, Mercury makes an excellent aspect with the Sun from the fifth house. Straight off the bat, you are speculative, imaginative and ready to try new things in your career. Financially you want greater clarity of mind so that you can maximise your opportunities this year.
The transit of Mercury in your sixth house means you will feel revved up to work harder and achieve more. You have some clear ideas of what you want with some well-defined targets.

The primary lesson to be learned from this is – don’t be insular, be inclusive. On top of this, the square aspect from Mercury on 13th of January 2 Uranus might cause you to act abruptly. Consider all options before making any decisions.
Share Finances and Investments
On March 22 Venus enters your eighth house. Mercury follows soon after on April 4.

A Horizon Broadening-Attitude
Notwithstanding your horizon-broadening attitude, remember, there’s no other relationship as important as the one you have with yourself. At this time, you may have a preference to go within yourself. Don’t feel as if you have to make excuses for being a recluse. You’ll enjoy your own company.
Deep and protracted self-analysis leads to true philosophical conviction and self-understanding. Someone you’ve supported and relied on in the past may do an about-face at the last moment. Let them know how you feel. You need to re-evaluate your emotional state. This isn’t a reaction to anything or anyone else. You’re just not feeling as good as you should.
