What’s in store for you in 2021, according to your star sign?
Aries 20 March – 18 April
Not only was 2020 exciting, with your ruler Mars in Aries from 28 June, last year, you’ll have reinvented yourself, and altered various elements of your life. So when, on 6 January 2021, Mars departs to ascent, first, what you’ve learnt, you’ll begin to rethink habits, passions and even arrangements you’ve regarded as unchanging. While, often, decisions will be easy, if not obvious, others will require thought and, probably, lead to discussions with those whose wisdom your value.
Celeb Hint: Set a schedule. This is vital for Aries, Princess Eugenie, who’s expecting her first child.
Taurus 19 April – 19 May
The restless feelings you’ve been experiencing are nothing new. However, during 2021, you take action. Changes in your way of living, working and future plans are both sudden and unexpectedly dramatic. Still, for even the most cautious of Taureans, these are as welcome as they are exciting. The trick? It’s to do something out of character – that is, plunge in, making plans as circumstances and your perspective shift. This ensures you’re able to embrace thrilling options that appear late in the year.
Celeb hint: Recent shifts in Adele’s lifestyle and shape reveal she’s already taking advantage of her sign’s remarkable planetary activity – and there’s more to come.
Gemini 20 May – 20 June
You’re inquisitive but just haven’t got around to exploring certain ideas, places or pursuits. Finally, during 2021, you will. The first is triggered by an inquisitive mood, then you’re soon drawn to others. The resulting insights lead to powerful, if not life-changing, decisions triggered by the pivotal Gemini eclipsed New Moon on 10 June. After that, you’re ready to invest time, effort, money and – possibly your heart – in what promises to become a thrilling new chapter of your life.
Celeb hint: Known for her distinctive style, off-screen and on, Gemini Helena Bonham Carter is urged to be alert for unexpected opportunities.
Cancer 21 June – 21 July
Obviously, you’re wishing the cycle of unsettling events that’s peppered 2020 would end. Be patient. From spring onwards, your options prove to be better than you’ve imagined possible. They’re linked to fiery Mars in Cancer, from 23 April – 11 June. The trick? Explore every idea or offer, and spend time with individuals who’re intriguing. However, what’s good just gets better, so sidestep restrictive commitments until the year’s end. By then you’ll know enough about circumstances and your evolving priorities to make wise plans.
Celeb hint: While already active, especially amongst families, the Duke of Cambridge (and his Capricorn Duchess) will thrive in creating new ways to support their charities.
Leo 22 July – 21 August
While most Leos adore family, friends and loved ones and will do anything for them, they also have a ferocious independent streak. During 2021, these clash. While most issues are easily resolved, a few could turn into dramas. Let them. Some involve others but as many highlight your own increasingly complex issues. The Leo New Moon on 8 August triggers insights that clarify facts and your feelings. Still take it slowly. What you learn about yourself while resolving these well justifies mustering the patience required.
Celeb hint: Initially, Leos dislike sudden change. However, during 2021, Leo the Duchess of Sussex will become expert at understanding, and embracing, unexpected twists and turns.
Virgo 22 August – 21 September
After 2020’s unsettling events, you’re on edge. The remedy? Projects that draw on your amazing gift for imposing order on chaos. Explore, knowing things will come together at the Virgo Full Moon on 27 February. Although events will surprise you, lean in. Allow one thing to lead to the next. By midyear, shifts in your priorities raise questions about your long term vision. Forget about making detailed plans. Take things as they come, relying on recently gained insights to guide you.
Celeb hint: Perfectionist Virgo, Prince Harry, has coped with plenty of change recently, but with more in 2021, he might think of adding mediation to his busy schedule.
Libra 22 September – 22 October
Nobody is better at seeming agreeable to others’ nonsensical ideas or demands, while gently encouraging them to adopt a more rational approach. Yet during 2021, you’ll be facing some tough facts about your own vision – for the present and the near future – and in several areas of your life. That may be a shock, but most require only subtle tweaks. Those that are more major – rethinking certain increasingly unrewarding personal and relationship goals – also seem overwhelming initially, but soon turn out to be a relief.
Celeb Hint: Librans adore friends and family, and with her daughter becoming a mother this year, Sarah, Duchess of York will experience true joy.
Scorpio 23 October – 21 November
Ordinarily you’re the first to spot trends – then, when necessary, to rethink your own plans and sometimes advise others. During the first half of 2021, you’ll be crystal clear about a range of matters, yet find others remain bizarrely puzzling. Actually, with the circumstances around you shifting, that’s no surprise. Wait, watch and learn, as the puzzle pieces appear. But the big picture? Not until early November’s magical planetary setup and the resulting events. These can’t be rushed, but will be well worth waiting for.
Celeb Hint: National treasure, Gwendoline Christie, is about to reveal just how versatile an actress she is. Wait for it – you’ll be amazed and delighted.
Sagittarius 22 November – 20 December
While you’re usually the first to spot, explore and make wise use of exciting ideas, suddenly it’s as if you were back in school. And what you’re learning is broadening your horizons personally, and in terms of your thinking and even your goals. Better yet, this frees you from certain objectives – in terms of activities or individuals – that are as unobtainable as they’d be troublesome. Declutter – fearlessly. Do that, and by the year’s close, life will be a lot more fun.
Celeb Hint: Judi Dench is as much-adored as she is capable of astonishing audiences by her subtle interpretations of even tricky roles. However, she’s added another, at home in the countryside.
Capricorn 21 December – 18 January
OK, initially you could struggle with the abrupt change in both circumstances and your mood triggered by the move, in late December 2020, by your ruler Saturn and Jupiter into edgy, rebellious Aquarius. However, you’ll soon be seduced by this new way of living, working and thinking, and especially the adventurous options and offers coming your way. The challenge? Tidying up, if not relinquishing, past commitments – suddenly many are so ‘yesterday’. That’s, literally, the case. Disentangle yourself, then move on.
Celeb hint: Many Capricorns don’t realise how hard they work until they turn their duties over to somebody else. However, the Duchess of Cambridge, who’s is always ‘on duty’, is learning new strategies to relax.
Aquarius 19 January – 17 February
For ages you’ve dreamt of a period when you could turn your far out ideas into plans that, in turn, become part of your life, work or even influence others. During 2021 that will be a regular experience. While thrilling, you’ll still have to figure out ways to benefit from those ideas or ventures in practical terms. This could be unexpectedly challenging. Despite that, be patient and persist. What you learn will benefit you and, often, others for years to come.
Celeb Hint: Clever, restless Aquarians are always busy, but especially so during 2021. The exciting doors that open for humanitarian legal-eagle, Amal Clooney, will benefit those who need help most.
Pisces 18 February – 19 March
You’re in for a glorious year. However, enjoying it means accepting a bizarre paradox – life’s about accepting what’s in your best interests, not what you’re hoping for. This is especially crucial around the Pisces New Moon on 13 March. Fight for outdated dreams and you’ll struggle and, worse, delay events far beyond anything you’ve imagined possible. At least try being flexible. While this brings new meaning to ‘go with the flow’ once you do, you won’t regret it.
Celeb Hint: While she’s had plenty of experience as a socialite and fund-raiser, the new Marchioness of Bath, Emma Weymouth, will have to watch her Piscean tendency to commit to more than she has time for.
