Virgo 2021 Yearly Horoscope Forecast


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 The habit of holding on to outdated thinking is part and parcel of life.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. You have more of a sensitive and nurturing feeling towards those you love during and after this eclipse. You have plans for your family. You’re looking forward to greater domestication. Unfortunately, that may not eventuate. There may be unexpected yet pleasant surprises that pull you away from your initial plans.

Eclipse and Time Consumption

This eclipse is going to lead to a great deal of your time being consumed by family needs. 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. All of those things that you were brought up to believe may be challenged at this time. That’s been happening anyhow as a result of Uranus transiting this area. This progressive and avant-garde planet shake things up big time. The solar eclipse is going to augment these progressions in your life. Get ready for an amazing rollercoaster ride in 2021.

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 May 26 the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius brings you back down to earth. Love the family, home and privacy will characterise this transit. You could be concerned about your family life now.

Your communication may not be received as well as you would like so misunderstandings are possible during this phase. This is around the same time that Venus makes that square aspect to Neptune. It’s important to be clear in the way you communicate your feelings and ideas. What you say is open to misinterpretation. Don’t assume people mean anything other than what they are saying now.

With Venus transiting your Sun sign after July 22, you will be rather attractive at this time. Enjoyment will be focused on your friends and acquaintances. You may join groups and associations with many different people during this interval. all manner of networking will be at the top of your agenda. This will bring about a period of expansion, self-confidence and tremendous opportunity.

Impressive Ideas Can Attract People Easily

You need to express your feelings and the receiving reciprocal love from others. You want pleasure, acceptance and all the finer things in life. You will also be very conscious of making an impression on others physically. At a time when you will beautify yourself and will make a tremendous impact on the wall around you.

Towards the close of the year, Venus makes its way to one of the best areas of your horoscope, the fifth house. This is a sign of love affairs. Shortly after, another lunar eclipse on November 19 takes place in Taurus. Don’t be afraid to share your creative concepts with others. Selecting the appropriate one for the situation requires a stroke of genius. These transits lead to all sorts of romantic opportunities.

Career and Finance

Important astrological factors are influencing your work in 2021. The most significant is the powerful conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn your sixth house. This year is a great time to get noticed so don’t be afraid to get out there and take charge. The only thing holding you back is an overemotional response to what’s going on around you.

Keep Focused on Your Goal

Keep focused on your goal and try to keep a lid on feelings. Things will generally get busier for a while so reserve extra time on your schedule for unanticipated appointments or prolonged, profitable personal engagements. The spotlight turns up, and you’re on stage – get ready to perform!

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. This transit is an independent and at times, stubborn one. You’re not going to optimise opportunities if you act alone or inflexibly.

You need allies to help you get there faster. You must be prepared to recognise the talents of those you work with. This will augment your own. 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.

While you’re in this process, it’s a great idea to bounce ideas off people who have a more pragmatic approach to life. This will help you sidestep errors in judgement. Don’t overvalue the words of others in your negotiations. Trust yourself this year. The moral of today’s story is: believe you can do it and you will.

Karma Luck and Spirituality

This could be anything from helping a friend move, carrying their furniture, making your car available to doing yoga and different physical postures. Charity and yoga and meditation all fall under this same umbrella

Powerful dreams

On June 21 the Sun, the natural significator of spirituality also activate your 12th house. You could have powerful dreams and insights during this period. You’re questioning your faith. If this has to do with any sort of belief or religious concept, it’s easily fixed. The problem is when faith in your own self is undermined. That’s a trickier terrain to negotiate. 

You have to be completely impartial in analysing yourself to extract the best from within. You mustn’t be afraid to bounce your ideas of others, even if you risk criticism or ridicule. This is the only way you are going to find and express the best in yourself. Anchor your dreams in reality, but allow imagination to soar.

Mercury and your intuitive insights 

Mercury gives intuitive insights while it transits your 12th house. This takes place on July 12 and lasts for almost one month. Diarise your insights and dreams. You’ll be able to use these insights to practically improve your life. Pursuing your goals with a more intuitive touch helps deliver better results. This differentiates you from your competitors. 

In other words, you need to make your work more unique. Imprint your personality and style on whatever you do. You need to co-create partnerships to maximize returns. Shared money will is a priority now. It could be a matter of renegotiating a deal. This next day or so is about throwing out old attitudes along with age-old outfits that are littering your wardrobe.

It’s a time of progress in your understanding and experience of life. You also come to a better understanding and acceptance of changes or transformations you’ve been going through, particularly in your love life.

Cancer 2021 Yearly Horoscope Forecast


Cancer 2021 Overview


This year is a particularly interesting one especially if you’re looking to break free of your past patterns and behaviour. As the year starts, Saturn is in the challenging square aspect to Uranus. The tension associated with this transit will be noticeable even as the year commences.

Saturn is structure whereas Uranus breaks down those structures and is a particularly revolutionary planet. Because of that, you may be finding it difficult to balance the tried and tested with more forward-thinking ideas.

The difficult aspect of Saturn to Uranus builds, leading up to February 18. You may be looking at ways to explore greater success and to do things on your terms. Unfortunately, you may be your own worst enemy. You’ll feel as if your wings have been clipped. Your confidence isn’t what it should be.

This is a period of personal adjustment, especially with the way you think. You may also need to look at your lifestyle habits and readjust those as well. Diet particularly may be part of the underlying problem which is abstracting your success.

The solar eclipse of June 10 occurs in your 12th house. This means the middle of the year is punctuated by a deeper spiritual sense. The 12th house has to do with meditation, solitude and retreat. It may be a time when you choose to connect with your higher self.

Your emotions may also be your worst enemy at this time. You’ll be seeking some sort of backdoor escape. You might be feeling suppressed, limited and hampered in everything that you try to do.

Until 2023, Saturn will be transiting your 8th house. This is the house of erotic and sensual energies. Your passions may need to be more structured at this time. You’re also seeking greater insight into what your partner’s needs are. Are they meeting yours? Somewhere along the line, you are going to have to work through the psychological barriers to being more intimate and to fulfilling you and your partner.

Often the way we perceive each other is not all the way our partners perceive themselves. Pleasing and may simply mean stepping out of your shoes for a while and becoming more compassionate. The 8th house is also related to life and death issues. It’s the house of self-transformation. The mysteries of life will intrigue you at this time and this cycle is about rebuilding your sense of self.

This 8th house also has a lot to do with your shared resources. Borrowings and loans are also governed by this transit. Could it be that you need to change the way you are dealing with finances and planning for your future security?

You will need to become more disciplined with the way you deal with money generally. This has to do with your future security and how you been managing your finances generally. Over and above this, the use or abuse of power may become an issue this year.

Up until May 14, Jupiter transits your 8th house. This accentuates what has been detailed above but also speaks of a more expansive approach to your finances and the finances of your partners. Jupiter is a lucky planet and therefore under this transit, up until this time, you may even be the recipient of some gift, inheritance or legacy. Winning money is also on the cards.

Romance and Friendship

Mars is your principal planet of romantic affairs with Venus ruling friendships and Saturn ruling your committed long-term relationships. Saturn is already been dealt with in the introduction but to see how your overall romance operates in 2021, let’s take a look at the transits of Mars and also the Sun and Venus, which also relate strongly to affairs of the heart.

On January 7 when Mars transits your 11th house, both friendship and material benefits come your way. You feel sociable and extroverted. You’ll seek friendship, especially with people who really know how to have a good time. Greater connections with unusual friends are shown by Mars making a conjunction with Uranus in 11th house on January 23.

These impulses should be checked, especially between January 23 when Mars square is Jupiter on February 25 with Mars making a trine of Pluto and then moving to your 12th house of secret activities on March 4.

As Venus transits the 7th house of your horoscope on January 9 you feel a resurgence of love for your partner and closest friends. The influence of Mars in the trine from Venus on January 10 makes you passionate. A creative spurt is likely during this period and your self-expression is peppered with brilliant insights and of course lovemaking. Use your creativity to improve your romantic life as well.

The hard aspect of Venus and Mars on February 20 shows that you are likely to be passionate about the wrong things. The conjunction of Venus and Neptune on March 14 also shows your extreme idealism. This goes for people as well as activities. Pick your mark well before embarking on any sort of romantic ‘adventure‘. As you can see, the first couple of months of the year are intense emotionally, socially and sexually.

Venus and friendships

Venus transits your 11th house of social activities and networking on April 15 making powerful conjunction to the disruptor, Uranus. Looking for unusual people will stimulate your mind and emotions. You might not have ventured out of your very tight circle of information or mental interests. Now, you have a chance to break free of those limitations.

There’s also a struggle between responsibilities to family and your social ambitions. Personal affairs and professional goals see more divergent. On the one hand, you’re inspired by your dreams. Remain aware of the practical demands of your day-to-day life.

On August 16 when Venus transits your 4th house you realise that you can’t keep postponing what needs to be done at home. Those domestic chores will never get done otherwise. It’s probably a good idea to allocate a large slab of time to get this out of the road.

Remove clutter to improve emotional circumstances

Hoarding, increased clutter and emotionally holding on to things, is subtly obstructing your emotional success. Minimalism seems to be your keyword during this cycle. It’s all about taking the initiative, that first step. Once you do this, you’ll realise that the task isn’t quite as humongous as you first thought. Getting the clutter out of the way creates space for love.

Venus makes a square to Pluto on September 6 but also makes a favourable aspect to Jupiter on the same date. On the 11th it moves to the romantic 5th house of your horoscope. The intensity of these aspects may be dampened by the hard aspect of Saturn on September 17. Romance is better than usual. You have the charisma to attract a potentially fun partner.

Choices may be available and this will be hard especially if two or even three offers are simultaneously on the table. A shift away from routine to a greater focus on your love life is likely. Get any tedious work out of the way first so you can fully enjoy your relationships. The aspect of Saturn may cause you to cool off and rethink some relationship.

Mars makes you more aggressive after September 15 with its transit in your 4th house. You have good reason to step up your demands on family members as shown by the trine to Saturn, square to Sun, trine to Jupiter and square to Pluto. All of these aspects take place between September 15 and October 22.

These above transits set the tone for an October 31 transit of Mars in your 5th house. With the square aspect of Saturn on November 11, you may be struggling to break free of some frustrating circumstance surrounding your love life. You are frustrated with someone and maybe bursting at the seams because of it. In response to this frustration, you could say and do things that you’ll regret.

Realise that even a kick up the pants isn’t going to get them moving in the direction you like, nor as fast as you’d prefer. You must understand that a leopard rarely changes its spots. Today, it may be a case of doing the job yourself if you need to get it done. The moral of the story is to not expect too much from unreliable people.

During November, love is in the air

Fortunately for the transit of Venus through your 7th house on November 5, much of the tension you feel can be offset by this wonderful soothing transit. The 7th house and the aspects of Venus to Uranus on the 19th indicate an innovative approach to solving your problems. At least, the last part of the year should yield some better results romantically.

The retrograde movement of Venus on December 19 and its conjunction with Pluto on the 25th warns that you should not be too obsessive or demanding of those you love. That may only serve to push them further away.

Career and Finance

The Sun and Mars are your principal career and finance planets. Studying their movements give you a good idea of what is likely to happen in your professional life in the coming months.

On or about March 4 you must be careful with your money. Mars transits your 12th house of excessive expenditure. You must contend with how and why you’re spending what you spend. You could feel like mud the morning after if you don’t curb your expenses.

Cutting back expenses is the only way for you to progress. You might need to completely shut out the world during this cycle as you don’t feel comfortable connecting with others. You may simply need to take a break for a while.

Career promotion

Notwithstanding these financial red flags, the transit of the Sun to your 10th house on March 20 is the best zone for your career elevation. Venus also adds its excellent vibrations on March 22 by joining the Sun in the upper part of your horoscope. Countering stress and work conflicts through some social activities will help. This reflects strongly on your chance of promotion or improved income. You could be over-reactive emotionally. You need to get on top of this.

In the eyes of others, you’ll need to prove your capacity in some way, with challenging situations. Allowing others to scrutinize your strengths and weaknesses makes you vulnerable but opens doors. An older man and his problems require some extra time and sacrifice on your part.

The Sun transits your first house on June 21. Professional relationships should run smoothly but also require a little management now. This is also a good time to concentrate on financial affairs or work which involves creative activity. Your energy and drive will be strong. Your health will also support your professional efforts.

Creating a more attractive and appealing work environment will please you now and help increase output. Your personal views mustn’t get mixed up with professional duties. When Mars makes its opposition aspect to Saturn on July 1, you may find yourself at odds with others it may be a difficult time. You may need to hold back from speaking your mind on certain issues, as much as you want to.

The Sun: The power and attraction

When the Sun transits your finance sector on June 23 you’ll start to feel the power of attraction once again. This must be used with as much clever and well-orchestrated business instinct as you can muster. It’s going to give you leverage. You’ll hold a crowd, teach or even mentor others along the lines of your own choosing.

In your professional arena, you could develop a taste for training and mediation. Any activity requiring you to speak or present convincingly should be considered. It’s the start of additional income. All these positive influences on your finances are indicated by the excellent trine aspect of the Sun to Jupiter.

Contracts will take precedence when the Sun transits your 3rd house on August 23. Contracts, common negotiations and other interactions require careful handling. Be careful that others aren’t taking advantage of you. It may be hard to press on but if the difficulty is too great to take a few short breaks to recharge your batteries.

Your popularity is strong as is your public approval and the Sun trine’s Uranus on September 7. You have a few days of powerful energy on which to capitalise. Spruce up your outfit, put on a new hairdo and look your best as unexpected opportunities require you to make a lasting impression on those you meet.

There may be some uncertainty about how you feel about your career when the Sun opposes Neptune on September 14. You need more clarity so it’s the perfect time to sit down and put pen to paper and plan your course of action professionally.

With the Sun transiting your 6th house November 22 and making productive conjunction to Mercury on November 29 energy your tasks is a priority. There are pressing deadlines but there needn’t be. The universe could be telling you to slow down and smell a few roses along the way. Avoid getting hot under the collar.

Business partnerships flourish right before Christmas on the 22nd, as the Sun enters your 7th house of business collaboration and partnerships. This follows the Venus and Mercury transits into the same place on November 5 and December 14 respectively. You can successfully combine your business and social activities at this time.

Karma Luck and Spirituality

Neptune indicates two very important dates in 2021 when your spiritual evolution may be accelerated. They are June 26 and December 1. Neptune goes retrograde and then direct on these dates. This occurs in your 9th house, one of the most spiritual directions of your horoscope.

At this time your intuitive powers are turned up so trust your first impressions. Stay away from people and places that could pollute the purity of your ‘auric’ clarity. If you’re into meditation or spirituality – today’s the day!

Powerful dreams also need to be heeded. Intuition is strong around these times. You must see if there is some way to transpose these insights into your practical, day-to-day life. Learn to distinguish the genuine from the fake.

Jupiter is also a primary spiritual planet and accentuates your spiritual activities and good karma particularly when it enters your 9th house on May 14. This house, along with the 5th house regulates your past karma and deeds. It will determine your net karmic credits and debits.

Powerful positive karma

Powerful positive karma is likely when Mars transits your 5th house on October 31. This follows the transit of the Sun to the 5th house on October 23. The results of your past life and actions earlier in this life start to come to fruition now. You might find yourself the recipient of some good luck was of effortless achievement in love, work and personal development.

Gemini 2021 Yearly Horoscope Forecast

Gemini twins

Gemini 2021 Overview

Gemini twins
Gemini, the star sign of the twins

Pluto continues making its way through your 8th house of deeper psychological transformation and spirituality, 2021 will be a breakthrough year for you. This shows you are working at changing yourself for the better. It’s about breaking through those habits that have held you back for so long. That’s not necessarily going to be an easy task but if you are sincere you will see some significant results.

The 8th house is also a zone of intimacy. Transformations take place in your personal life. This also extends to the way you share your material resources, not just your intimate moments. After April 28 Pluto makes its retrograde move. This means the process will intensify for some months after this. It may also indicate some significant changes in your most important relationships.

On 5th and 15th of January Pluto is transited by the Sun and Mercury. This steps up communication and discussions which will focus on how to improve your relationships throughout this year. It’s your partner on board? Hopefully, that will be the case. It takes 2 to tango. Improving your knowledge about sexuality, intimacy and better personal relations is on the cards as well.

These transits are likely to be intense. Because of the disruptive influence of Uranus in your 12th house, you need to be mindful of just how much you give to others. This year is therefore about balance in terms of giving your time, energy and even money to people. This includes family members who may find it easy to lean on you because of your generous nature.

There is another positive omen as 2021 gets underway is the strong angular position of Venus in your 7th house of relationships. Because it is so closely connected with your South node, much of the past karma of your relationships will be floating to the surface. Venus in itself is good positive energy for you. Don’t let the past superimpose on the present, however. If you are conscious, your catcher self-doubt and realise that dragging the past into your present relationships is a recipe for disaster.

As a result of the transit of Jupiter in your 9th house of luck and good karma, 2021 should generally offer you some great breaks. With the square aspect to Uranus, unexpected opportunities arise and you should be quick to pounce on them. They will be lucky chances but not at all what you had imagined. New educational opportunities are also included in this transit.

Employers or business associates may subsidise these new courses or educational degrees. Because finances are generally ruled by Jupiter your income might also see a nice lift. You should be well paid for the work that you do in the coming months.

Eclipses in 2021 for Gemini

Several lunar eclipses occur this year. On May 26 and also November 19 these celestial events have a big impact on you. The first takes place in Sagittarius, your marital sector and Gemini, your Sun sign. We’ve already discussed how important your relationships will be this year. Because of the transit of the South Node, it brings up your past. You are forced to work on your personal shortcomings in spite of yourself.

The first lunar eclipse is associated with your 7th house of significant relationships. Eclipses always take place on one of the nodes-either the North or South node. Both of these are deeply connected with your future and past karma. That is why I am making such a big point of this. This occurs at the end of the 2nd quarter of the year but will have a marked influence on you throughout the remaining months of 2021.

The second lunar eclipse occurs in your 12th house. This has also been touched on in this introduction. The 12th house apart from reflecting your generosity and charitable nature have to do with spirituality. Because of this, you will be interested in deepening your spiritual insight and understanding towards the end of the year. It may be time to take yourself out of the day-to-day hustle and bustle. Spend some time alone, get back in touch with nature and reconnect with your higher self.

Jupiter transits

The transits of Jupiter are always important on a year-to-year basis. Leading up to January 18 Jupiter makes a square aspect to Uranus. This means the year starts off with a bang! You want independence and you’ll be looking for ways in which to assert that in every department of your life.

Jupiter is favourable to the Sun around March 13. This is a good karma aspect bringing happiness and good fortune. Try to capitalise on this especially because Saturn, friendly planet to you is in connection to Jupiter at this time as well. This is a junction point of your past and future karma. Use the wisdom of your past to springboard into a better future.

Jupiter makes its way into your 10th house of career and professional opportunities on May 14. This will be short-lived as it does an about-face soon after. On June 21 Jupiter goes retrograde. You must be careful that all the good work you’ve accomplished in your professional sphere isn’t all undone. You have to be more meticulous around this time and not leave anything to chance..
Jupiter’s transit through your professional sphere continues till it again goes direct on October 18. Your business relationships will also come under scrutiny. Jupiter’s influence on your 3rd house of communication relates to the way you negotiate and also convey your ideas to others. Its expansive nature means that you can expect a more optimistic cycle with its presence here. Your business relationships will feel the benefits of this incredible transit.

The 7th house also relates to business partnerships and the general public. These transits activate your popularity and give you a better sense of what the general public, including your clients, might want. If you’re actively involved in sales or generally dealing with the public, you’ll find a much better response to your style.

Romance and Friendship

Jupiter is your principal planet of relationship. It governs your long-term committed relationships including marriage or de facto live-in arrangements. While it transits your 9th house throughout 2021 you can expect a much better connection with the one you love. After having transited through the 8th house over the previous year, it shows that there have been some important developments in your love life.

The placement of Venus in your 7th house at the outset of the year is a great kickoff 2021. It shows your love and commitment is strong. You also want to spend more time with your lover.

With the transit of Neptune in your 10th house it’s likely there will be some confusion surrounding how you feel about yourself. As the relationship you have with your own being is the most important relationship of all, it’s important you get this right. There are 2 significant transits of Neptune this year. They are its stationary and direct motion. Those changes occur on June 26 when Neptune goes retrograde in its own sign of Pisces.

Retrogression usually means you are going to review something. In this case, it has to do with your own inner happiness and moral choices. This retrograde motion will continue up until December 1 at which point it will go direct. Throughout this period you will be thinking about who you are and how you can best deal with the people you want to be with.

There may be aspects of your own personality that need to be adjusted so that you can attract a better quality of person into your life. This applies equally to your social life as it does to your intimate personal relationships. It’s influence on your 4th house also calls into question your relationship with family members.

Mars starts the year in your 11th house. This is an aggressive planet which can show there are some problems in your social sphere. Someone or more friends may be aggressive and this could cause you to recoil from your connection with them. By January 7 it also makes a challenging aspect to Saturn. You will be extremely frustrated and no doubt angry during this transit. You will rethink your social agenda. Whatever you try to do maybe opposed even if you are trying to make peace. This could cause you to look for a new circle of friends at least in the first part of the year.

Friendships are challenging at the outset

When Mars makes a conjunction to Uranus you might find yourself bottling a lot of feelings. That’s because this conjunction takes place in your 12th house. The 12th house is the hidden part of your horoscope and could show that you will be brooding rather than speaking up about any dissatisfaction you are feeling in your relationships.

Furthermore, Jupiter makes a challenging connection to Uranus on the 23rd. If you’ve been feeling frustrated you are likely to do something out of the ordinary now. That may come out of the left of the field and will surprise everyone not only you. You want to be independent and will do things you haven’t tried before. You’ll be looking to expand your social circle but also to seek out people who are a little offbeat and unique in their views.

On the 18th and 25th the Sun and Venus, transit the 10th house. Although you’ll be busy workwise, it’s also quite likely you will be finding a crossover between your social affairs and the work that you do. This should be a time when you meet new friends and acquaintances through mutual connections in your workplace. Some of you, if you are lucky enough and other transits in your personal birth chart agree, may meet someone that can become a true romantic partner.

Domestic activities heat up

The 4th zone of your Sun sign chart has to do with your family affairs. Venus transits here on July 22. Mars follows it closely after on July 30. This indicates a mixture of energies in your domestic sphere. Mars and Venus make you passionate for family and friends. It generally shows your inner emotional life is also more animated and demonstrative. You may want to show your love by expressing it through gifts and other familial actions.

With Venus in this part of your chart, you will also want to entertain friends, lovers and family in the comfort of your own home. This will continue for a while because on August 12 and 23rd, Mercury in the Sun both respectively transit this area as well. July and August will therefore be more concerned with your home life rather than actively being out partying or clubbing with friends.

Love affairs

If you’re curious to find out about your love affairs, soulmates and other emotional opportunities, the transit of Venus deliberate on August 16 is a great time to make yourself available. Mercury also makes its way into the same area on August 30. Mars and Sun really pump you up on September 15 and 23 respectively. These fire planets indicate access passion, competitiveness and unbridled sexual desire.

Overall this is one of the best periods of the year to stake your claim on the one you love. If you have your eye on someone this latter part of the year promises to be fulfilling and very sexy too.

In the last quarter of 2021, the same above 3 planets make an even bolder statement romantically as they transit your 7th house of love and marriage. Venus transits the 7th house of Sagittarius on October 7. This is a return to where it was as the year started. For those seeking long-term commitment or even marriage, Venus often makes it happen. Those attached already can expect the last part of the year to be again, one of love and deep affection.

Career and Finance

You’re focused on work this year. Not just any old work. You’ve already decided you want to achieve a huge amount and that shown by the square aspect of Mars and Jupiter. That occurs on January 23 and sets the trend for the rest of the year. You will get great results from this because there are also supporting aspects to the Sun and Pluto on January 2018 February 25. Your physical energy is strong and your drive and willpower and fuel to your ambitions.

Business partnerships are looking good this year. Studying the planets transiting the 7th house can be very revealing. In this respect, the May 26 lunar eclipse will be a very powerful marker for your finances. The reason this is so is that the Moon rules your 2nd house of income. The eclipses herald big turning points in your business life. Mark this in your diary is an important juncture in 2021.

The solar eclipse of June 10

There is a solar eclipse soon after, on June 10. This takes place in your Sun sign and it, therefore, speaks loads about how you are primarily the most important ingredient in your professional or personal affairs. How you conduct yourself and manage your personal energies will be very telling this year. You may decide to change your attire, your personality or even your job. The eclipse takes you into yourself. You will want to dig deeply into those best parts of your nature. You are committed to being successful.

For those of you in business, the 11th house is important in determining the amount of profit you can make. The Moon makes its conjunction with the Sun on April 12 in this very area. You may be looking at new business ideas which trigger fresh sources of income.

The new Moon in January in Capricorn shows that you will be looking to become savvier in your business relationships. This takes place in your 8th house which has to do with banking, finance and the way in which you share the money and resources of other people.

Your year is not without its fair share of opposition and strain. On June 6 Mars opposes Pluto. You could be obsessing about earning as much money as you can. Don’t forget that Mars as well as ruling your profitability, also relates to friendships. You don’t want to burn friends nor get people offside, generally. If you’re angry or frustrated it’s best to step aside for a while until the dust settles.

Hard work is likely to be the dominant feature of your life after July 1 when Mars makes an opposition to Saturn in July for a square to Uranus. You’ll be torn between doing things in the old-fashioned traditional way or breaking ranks and attempting something new, even avant-garde. You want something cutting-edge but not everyone is going to be able to keep up with you.

The new Moons in critical finance sectors of your horoscope can also be very revealing. They show when you are likely to see big turning points in your financial timeline. A very important new Moon in Leo, your 3rd house of contracts and negotiations occurs on August 9. These planetary aspects point to new opportunities but also with the opposition to Jupiter, a certain amount of over-optimism is likely. Keep it real and always look at the fine print.

Throughout September October there may be some pressure on you workwise. It’s important for you not to overdo it. You could be burning the midnight oil with Venus transiting through Scorpio, your 6th house of work environments of September 11. On October 23 the son and then on October 31, Mars, also make their impact on this area.

The fiery planets like Sun and Mars can cause all sorts of problems with co-workers. This may also affect your health. Eating too quickly, on the run and also not paying attention to your body signals and result in lowered vitality and even ill-health. Try to get a better schedule together to balance your personal and work life at this time.

Karma Luck and Spirituality

Saturn and Uranus are your principal spiritual planets. They rule and code rules your 9th house. The stationary direct movement of Uranus on January 14 gives you the momentum you are looking for to seek a greater understanding of yourself. The April 29 trine to the Sun is significant as well. You are likely to have brilliant intuitive insights.

Your meditations can be electric and you are likely to have very vivid dreams at this time. You should trust the dreams you have and possibly even keep a dream diary. Study with the events you’ve dreamt about actually come to pass. You’ll be absolutely surprised at how your dreams, this year, can be one of important premonitions.

Both Saturn and Uranus will make significant retrograde and forward movements throughout the year. Firstly, Saturn will square Uranus on February 18. This simply means your values and belief systems will be under tremendous scrutiny. You are realising that some of what you’ve been carrying as a religious and philosophical platform to live by, isn’t cutting it anymore. You’ll be challenged to try new things while at the same time eliminating those outdated methods.

Saturn goes retrograde on May 23 and then direct on October 11. Uranus makes its retrograde station on August 20. All of these dates point to some significantly important turning points in your awareness and understanding of life generally.

You are moving into a new cycle now and what a deeper understanding of things. Superficial answers won’t satisfy you and neither will superficial people. You’re ready now to jettison yourself into a new phase of life. That may mean eliminating many people you once thought understood you. As you evolve and grow, you will realise that not everyone is on the same level as you.

It’s time for a change and you are more than ready for it. 2021 will be a memorable year if only for this specific development in your life.

Symbols and Celebrations of Motherhood

Symbols & Celebrations of Motherhood

That time of year has come when we celebrate motherhood, honouring the role mothers play in our lives and in the human story, and the qualities associated with motherhood. It’s a time to celebrate the feminine principle and recognize the unique biological role of the mother and how this connects with our cultural conception of femininity. The mother plays a unique physiological role in nurturing a child during pregnancy, and this nurturing role and uniquely close bond naturally tends to play out beyond the birth of the child and through their infancy. The bond between a mother and child is the stuff of legends.

Mother’s Day Special HERE

While the modern Mother’s Day holiday can be traced back to anti-war activists in the late 19th century USA, motherhood and its associated qualities have been celebrated across cultures throughout recorded history. This year, Americans are estimated to spend $25 billion over the Mother’s Day celebration. While capitalism may enjoy this phenomenon, it did not create it as the role of this holiday in our culture traces back far deeper into our history. It reveals something of our deeper nature that we feel a collective desire to show gratitude and reverence for mothers, motherhood and those associated nurturing qualities.

The qualities associated with motherhood and femininity include compassion, unconditional love, empathy and a desire to nurture and protect. These are not only qualities of mothers but aspects of ourselves that we express and experience in our personal relationships and life generally. We can also see these principles in action at different conceptual levels. For instance, we see the nurturing aspect of a community towards its members. For this reason, cultures throughout history have abstracted out the principles associated with motherhood and femininity. They have encapsulated them in deities or symbols which can then be used to explore and discuss the ideas, to educate and guide spiritual development.

There is a rich cultural tradition of associating femininity with water. The physical properties and behaviour of water can be seen to symbolically mirror the accepting, receptive and total embrace of the mother. Along with many traditional reasons for this connection, modern science even indicates to us that the ocean may be a mother to all life on earth and that our own evolutionary heritage comes from ocean life. This fits nicely with the existing symbolic framework and only serves to strengthen and enrich it.

This symbolic connection is an important one in the astrological tradition, where the Moon is associated with water and the feminine principle. The water sign of Cancer is seen to strongly embody the nurturing qualities of motherhood. We look at water and the qualities associated with femininity when symbolically breaking down a chart to form our interpretation. In the same way, we look at the other elements and the qualities associated with the masculine principle, such as assertiveness and intellect.

yin and yangThe purpose of making a symbolic distinction between the archetypes of masculine and feminine is not to assign one to men and the other to women. Instead, the two principles are seen as a duality, two halves of a whole which contrast and balance one another. This is the Yin and Yang of Taoism. Every individual embodies within themselves and their actions the qualities that both of these principles symbolise. We express some degree of balance between the two in every conceivable context. Examples of that are between thought and emotion, intellect and imagination, assertion and submission, resistance and acceptance, boundaries and openness.

The masculine and feminine principles are not just symbolic categories relating to people, but qualities that permeate nature. The feminine, for example, is a symbolic thread that we can follow through a range of diverse territory, from fluid dynamics, gravity and magnetism, to human emotion and compassion. By recognising these archetypal structures and ideas within ourselves and also in nature we can use this symbolic language to apply these principles we discover in nature, to ourselves. We are able to apply insights about how things find balance in nature to our own personal development and behaviour. The many cultural and religious symbols of these principles exist not only to acknowledge their existence but also to help orient us towards manifesting them in a healthy and balanced way. Ultimately, everything is about balance. Water is essential to our survival, but with too much of it, we can drown.

cup pagan Christianity symbol

In paganism, the rich symbolism of water is encapsulated in the image of the Cup. A cup can be seen to resemble a womb, and so the cup was used to represent fertility, gestation and intuition, among other qualities associated with the feminine in pagan cultures. This symbolic thread continued, though somewhat evolved into Christianity as the chalice holding the blood of Christ. Some branches of Christianity also deify the feminine and motherly principles in their reverence for Mother Mary, the mother of Christ. From another cultural vantage point, this may take the form of reverence for the goddess Sophia. She is more commonly represented in modern times as Gaia or Mother Earth. Our beautiful planet and the life it has cultivated is a mother that we all share, and should all have reverence for.

A day like Mother’s Day invites us to focus on love, to give attention to these aspects of life and show our gratitude to the women in our lives who embody them. Mother’s Day invites us above all to be loving and remember the nurturing and healing power that sharing our love with others has both for others and for ourselves. Mother’s Day reminds us to value our family bonds and to put into words every once in a while that love and respect which can easily go unspoken.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Meditation according to your star sign



Too often we become caught up in ideologies, dogmas and religions of all sorts. Through astrology however we can see the different qualities exhibited in the characters of the zodiac. Spirituality is predominantly governed by the 9th house and Sagittarius which indicates religion, the higher mind and even ones mentors and gurus. The 12th house or Pisces is the hidden house of the zodiac and along with the 8th house or Scorpio, indicate transformative processes which take place away from the public eye. These are the mysterious houses of the zodiac, the spiritual houses and the ones which take us away from this material world either through death (8th house), which is not of our choice, or the 12th house, which is the house of withdrawal and therefore a choice to “die” to the material world as in the case of monks and nuns who enter monasteries to focus their attention purely on spirituality. Additionally, initiation into spiritual life by a mental or guru is shown by the 5th house. This shows the type of prayer, mantra or other ritual technologies that may assist a person along the path of spiritual enlightenment.

By becoming caught up in the ideology and not looking to ourselves to see what the line of least resistance is in our spiritual development, our path in life, we make the mistake of superimposing concepts on human processes that are just not all compatible with those dogmas. Rather than freeing us spiritually, we experience tension within, the friction of doing something which just doesn’t feel right according to our own inner dictates.

361816_7515-150x150Finding the line of least resistance is the job of the astrologer when trying to help clients discern what sort of meditation is best for them. Armed with the knowledge of the Sun sign, the lunar sign, the rising sign, the 8th, 9th and 12th houses from each of these and other intricate astrological aspects and calculations, we can see what the past life was, what the karmic lapses were leading to transmigration and rebirth in this life.  What the natural predisposition is towards self-understanding and how that can best be facilitated is diametrically opposite to the intransigent dogmas of traditional religion. With the guidance of an astrologer, the seeker takes a left-hand turn in the direction of that line of least resistance which can speedily take him into that zone which reveals his/her True Self.

The following 12 astrological assessments is a brief overview of the natural inclination of each of us to spirituality and meditation based upon the 9th house of the horoscope.


The 9th house of the horoscope regulates one spiritual journey and in this case Sagittarius rules your meditation and higher development. Sagittarius is an outgoing sign and this therefore means that sitting down cross-legged for hours on end contemplating your inner chakras is not going to work particularly well for you. Aries as well Sagittarius are fire signs and you therefore need action, mobility and a sense of physical achievement. Yoga, sports and other physical and competitive activities are perfect to help extinguish the excess fire element within you.  Once you are able to eliminate this aggressive and often overwhelming energy and power, your mind will become stilled and you will then not only be in a position to perform traditional meditation but may even find the physical action of sport and competitive interaction meditation itself.

You are a stable the zodiac sign and therefore traditional forms of meditation may be useful for you. Those born under the sign of the bull enjoy natural environments and therefore parks, the seaside, wildlife, fauna and flora are excellent environments for you to still your mind and make contact with your higher self. Gardening is often a natural meditation for Taureans. But accepting change is a difficult part of your life and probably one of your biggest lessons, so learning to adapt, breathing deeply when change is forced upon you is also a way for you to go with the flow as they say. You have excellent powers of focus and this is ideal for any sort of meditation where you need to spend lengthy periods in a secluded environment. Capricorn is your 9th house at also shows that more conservative forms of religious activity will suit some of you. By releasing th efear of change your mind will natuaraly become more settled and peaceful thereby making meditation much easier for you.

Being born under the air sign of Gemini means that you are very curious about many things mentally but at the same time restless. The 9th house of your horoscope shows Aquarius as being the predominant force affecting your spiritual development. As this is an unconventional star sign and one which has revolutionary connotations, traditional forms of religion may not suit you. Your meditation will be primarily of an intellectual calibre, one in which you want to understand the nature of reality and where you fit in the scheme of things. Intellectual discrimination with a focus on the real versus the unreal is an excellent form of meditation because it engages your mind and keeps it focused on one thing, something that is difficult for the typical Gemini to do particularly in the early part of life. Deep breathing is also a way to calm this restlessness and will bring with it one pointedness at which time you’ll be able to do a more traditional form of meditation.

Selfless service and rendering assistance to those who are in need is an excellent form of meditation for those of you born under the water sign of Cancer. The reason being, your 9th house of spiritual activity is ruled by Pisces which is the sign of self-sacrifice. When you are helping others and nurturing them which is also one of the traits of your Sun sign, if it absorbed as if in another space. The notion that one must be sitting cross-legged staring at one’s third eye to be in meditation is incorrect. Your ability to help others will help reduce your sense of ego over time and unlike the typical Cancer in its lower stage of evolution, attachment to the people you love will slowly melt away leaving with it the pure brilliance of selfless love, which is the goal of all meditation.

Leo is ruled by the Sun which is the heart of the solar system, the engine room of what happens astrologically. The Sun is also related to one’s vitality, the atomic nature and the physical heart. Activity of all sorts, sport and motion which allows you to slip into the “zone” is what turns you on spiritually. As with Aries, which is your 9th house of higher spiritual aspirations, physical activity gives you a sense of burning away the dross or negativity which causes you anger, frustration and a feeling of being stuck in life. You need to be free of this and act independently so to you spirituality / meditation is a form of inner adventure. You like to be admired but in the more evolved Leo born native the shining state of self-awareness which will be achieved by your physical activities will be also very attractive to others but in a way which will act as a sort of beacon light for those who are lost. Your leadership qualities and your ability to share your inner experiences are also a form of meditation in that you lead others to the same higher states of self-awareness.

On a spiritual note, Taurus which is your 9th house ruling your higher spiritual activities and meditation is the dominant theme for you in this respect. Taurus is a fixed sign, earthy in nature which means concern for the future and your financial stability may constantly distract you from the deeper more substantial work of clearing away those personality traits holding you back from evolving and becoming self-actualised. Virgo is notorious for being critical and therefore, for meditation to take root those born under the sign of the Virgin need to shine the light of criticism on themselves. This process will remove those personality traits and inner karmic obstructions holding you back from realising your highest potential. As Mercury is the ruling planet for Virgo, intellectual insight and meditations relating to discriminative and philosophical objectives will suit you well.

Gemini rules your 9th house of higher spiritual activities and in some ways is an obstruction to you focusing your attention clearly on what spiritual technique will yield the best results. This is also borne out in your Sun sign of Libra which is to a large extent one of the most indecisive in the Zodiac. You can always see two sides of the equation and in spiritual matters that will become an obstacle as the path to self-realisation requires a complete surrender of one’s identification with the world of matter. This doesn’t mean you need to leave the world, become a monk and eliminate anything in fact from your life, rather to disassociate and not identify with things of this world and the circumstances that tend to throw you around emotionally. Finding balance through deep breathing and yoga will be a distinct advantage to you and will bring an inner calm which will then allow you to sit for deeper meditation which will reveal amazing insights in time.

Learning the art of contentment and being happy with what you have seems easy enough to say, however for you it is rather difficult. You have a complex mind interwoven with as complex an emotional nature. Until you are able to fully experience the dark, and come to terms with that part of your nature, thereby releasing it, you will not be able to truly experience the Light nor the contentment that comes from letting go of desire. For Scorpio, having the mutable water sign of Cancer as the 9th house of your horoscope indicates the feminine aspects as well as the procreative ones will play an important role in your spiritual development. The connection between sexuality and love or perhaps more to the point, the disconnection of these two things will be one of the most important keys to your spiritual emancipation. Extinguishing desire forcibly is not advised for you. You should exhaust these desires gently and with love, as an innocent spectator, so that your meditation and spiritual activities will be unburdened by those deeper inner forces which at times can be emotionally turbulent.

As the 9th house of any horoscope rules spiritual development and the higher mind, with Sagittarius ruling the natural 9th house of the zodiac, there is a natural affinity between those of you born under the sign of the Centaur and spiritual evolution. The 9th house of the horoscope also has to do with past Karma and the previous incarnation. You see life and for that matter meditation and spiritual development as an adventure and if it’s not fun you may not be interested. This doesn’t mean there are no traditional religious people in the Sagittarius camp. The essential ingredient is a sense of fun and exploration. And this extends to culture and religious doctrines. Sagittarius loves compare religions and to extract the best out of all of them to create something unique to them and their own personalities. Openness and generosity which are ruled by Jupiter, the governor of Sagittarius, means that you have a natural sensitivity and ability to develop your meditation. You are already highly evolved so sitting quietly and meditating particularly on the quality of space – conscious space that is, will liberate you from the shackles of endless transmigration and rebirth.

Those born under Capricorn need lot of pragmatic and practical proof to change their religious or spiritual beliefs or to even commence treading this path. The Earth sign of Taurus regulates your spiritual development and like your Sun sign, also Earth, means that it’s pretty hard for you not to keep your feet firmly planted on this material Earth. But once you establish a sense of security materially, there is nothing stopping you from investigating the deeper spiritual realms within man. With Taurus ruling your 9th house, whose governor is pleasure-loving and artistic Venus, losing yourself in culture, art and music will be your primary meditation. Define the beauty in life, to capture that and emulated will in itself be meditation enough. Once the connection is drawn between the activity of letting go and the sublime states a human being can attain through artistic creativity, that process will then be easily transposed to everything else you do. You will then be in meditation all the time.

You have an innate sense of breaking the bounds of the known and moving into intellectual territory that is in fact off-limits according to the traditional way of thinking. This is why your meditation and spiritual work will not easily fit into the norm. And nor will the norm easily fit into you. In a strange sort of way the meditation which is best for you is ruled ( as with Capricorn ), by Venus which dominates your 9th house of Libra. Although people regard Libra as the sign of balance it is in fact the sign struggling to find balance. Forever oscillating between the worlds of yes-no, up-down, in-out, possibly-possibly not, your struggle to find balance and inner peace will be obstructed but at the same time nurtured by this life of duality. One of the easiest ways for you to find balance is through communication and to some extent artistic and cultural expression. These things naturally calm your mind and bring you to a state of one-pointedness. It is only at this stage that you will easily slip into meditation in much the same way that when tired, and even exhausted, you simply slip into sleep. Part of your spiritual journey involves helping if not transforming the world and through art and culture which is uniquely and expression of yourself, you can indeed revolutionise the world you live in through your spiritual intent.

The 9th house at also the 12th house which is the natural house of Pisces, relate to spiritual activities, meditation, monastic life and so on and so forth. You have a natural affinity with all of these things and because the 9th house of your horoscope is ruled by Scorpio, you can be extremely intense and passionate about your spiritual objectives. You can easily surrender yourself to the highest ideal of spirituality and through deep meditation can come to the real of self-realisation in this life as Pisces is the last sign in the Zodiac indicating a cessation of karmic activity, are stepping off of the wheel of Karma so to speak. But there is a downside to this sign and that is that you are likely to be a little too idealistic and naive when dealing with the world and many of the scoundrels in it. For your spiritual development to be well rounded you must learn to activate some of the deeper intellectual qualities and you do have that as Jupiter code rules your sign and is indeed an excellent learner and teacher. Gift yourself and ensure your own spiritual stability before sacrificing yourself and becoming the victim.

Planetary alignment: 2016


SUNIt’s that time again-a planetary alignment! Every so often, major celestial events are the buzz across the planet and currently what we are seeing is an outpouring of news items on the impact of the alignment of quite a few planets in the heavens at this time. Mostly, the news relates to the astronomical curiosity and its value mostly seems to be intellectual. But what does this Planetary alignment: 2016, mean astrologically, as there are also many views on how this will impact us, if at all, as terrestrial citizens here on planet Earth.

Currently, five planets including Mercury, Saturn, Venus, Jupiter and Mars are in the vicinity of the fixed stars of Antares and Spica and appear in a straight line.  They are not all in the same astrological sign however as is the case when two or more planets are in conjunction. Astrologically, the alignment of many planets can indicate a top-heavy influence in a specific area of one’s horoscope. Generally the new age community speaks of this as signifying some accelerated evolutionary moment where large masses of people will actually realise something within themselves, consciousness will be refined and the new seeds of human development sewn.


Over the years I’ve seen varying grades of alignments and while yes, we can say that there are indeed pockets of accelerated evolution, I think we all agree that the condition of the world, the wars, famine and other trammels of human existence for the most part haven’t changed in the last 5000 years or more.

The alignment may however impact us individually and differently depending upon our personal horoscope, greater revolution etc and will continue to be visible until February 20, almost a whole month. We can break down this rare alignment into the constituent planets in the following way-

If you take a look at the horoscope to 21 January you notice that the planets in this alignment aren’t all in the same house or sign of the Zodiac but are still considered as being aligned. Mercury the uppermost planet in longitude forms a trine aspect to Jupiter, the planet of lowest longitude. The trine aspect is a good one indicating fortuitous communication. For the planetary alignment: 2016, planets involved are as follows Andcover quite a few areas in our lives-

  • Mercury-the planet of communication and intellectual connectivity
  • Saturn the planet of trials, tribulations and limitation
  • Venus, the planet of love and sociability, also to some extent ruling finances
  • Mars, ruling energy, drive combativeness and sexual power
  • Jupiter, ruling philosophy, religion, law, travels and morals

You can see why so much emphasis is placed on this and previous planetary alignments as they seem to encompass pretty much every department of life. Will this mean a realignment of these facets of our day-to-day lives or perhaps an imbalance that needs to be checked? This depends upon where in your horoscope this alignment occurs. Some believe that this is like a hard boot, a reset of sorts with a new cycle commencing as a result of this planetary convergence.

There are many astrologers who simply regurgitate the same old information saying that this will herald the beginning of a new shift in consciousness but as stated above, we see that these alignments happen at regular intervals over large periods of time and the notion that we are somehow now more evolved as a race because of these alignments couldn’t be further from the truth. We only have to look at the most recent wars that are being waged across the world, to see that these alignments have done very little to allay the fears of everyday people like you and I in terms of where the world is headed.

The bottom line is that astrology is not information that should be regurgitated ad nauseam simply because other people say it. As with the early practitioners of astrology observation was key to understanding how these cycles actually affect us in real terms. So, study what is happening to you now, make a note in your journal and see if there are any subtle fluctuations going on within your mind and your heart. Self-analysis and introspection are the only way you’re going to truly understand on an individual level how this planetary alignment will affect you. Forget about what all the soothsayers are saying, look to yourself and identify these subtle shifts in consciousness that may be attended by these planetary configurations.

On some level, for some of us, there may be dramatic changes and yet for others, probably the vast majority, very little may be noticed. It’s up to you to make those observations and draw your own conclusions.
