ENERGETIC THEMES FOR USA IN 2021
Below I am highlighting each theme for the year 2021. I will list the key theme and dates you may feel most affected next to the theme. Below the theme title with date I will have more specific info. This report is based on the United States but many of these themes will be felt on a global scale.
BREAKING AWAY Jan 28 through Feb 19
It is a time where you will be having to deal with your own restrictions and inhibitions. The result of this is that you may be feeling like you want to grow and break free from these restrictions or somehow grow within the structures of your current life. You may feel very restless and the responsibilities you may have had to deal with in the past are now intolerable.
This time can be considered a leaping out into a new freedom, it can be accompanied by a change of residence or breakup in your personal relationship. This is not a bad thing and will most likely lead you onto more fortunate circumstances. Your business life can be good during this time if you are able to maintain a calm a careful way of proceeding. If you are restless or impatient it is best to break free from your constrictions and find something new.
KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON Jan 30 through Feb 27
This is normally a time that will be testing your discipline levels and restraints as you may want to go overboard or overextend yourself during this time. You may be feeling excessively optimistic and that could end up causing you problems when things do not go your way.
Knowing when to stop is the trick to getting things done right, you need to have control over yourself and your desires. Try not to be too egotistical as you will be feeling like you own everything and can call all the shots, but this will quickly backfire if you bite more than you can chew. You may end up in some conflict with others especially with authority figures and so it is best to restrain any anger or outbursts, or things may get ugly very fast. The more you know yourself and your abilities the better things will work out for you now.
The effects of this time can indicate luck or change in fortune or a sudden change in your life. It can be a very restless time and you will want to make changes at any cost. It can cause issues as you may be likely to make the wrong decisions just for the sake of making them. Freedom is very important to you now and your relationships may suffer because of this. But opportunity is ripe now, and you need to maintain a degree of restraint and patience to make the right decisions. Remain calm and good things will come your way.
MENTAL RECONSTRUCTION Jan 16 through Mar 1
It is a hard and challenging time for communicating with others mainly because of a difference in opinions or points of view. Arguments may end up in break ups or close to it. You will be worrying more, and depression could result as nobody seems to be on your side. It is not a good time to make any long-standing decisions as you are incapable of seeing the big picture and are focusing too much on the immediate situation. It is not all bad, what Saturn is showing is where perhaps you are being rigid or at least to find the source of your conflict with others, where are you perhaps not seeing the forest for the trees. It could end up being a time of intense mental reconstruction which will be very beneficial in the long term. If these conflicts are not addressed now, then they may get worse years from now when Saturn will oppose or conjoins Mercury.
KARMIC DEBT Feb 6 through Mar 26
There may be much more tension in your relationships even to the point of crisis. It is a period of great challenge it is difficult for you to express yourself well and establishing new relationships. It is best to work on what you already have. You may feel quite lonely even in the company of your partner as you may have trouble relating to them especially if you have not built enough of a solid foundation in the relationship. It is a good time to examine your relationships and obligations in general. Your duties in your relationships may increase dramatically and this is related to your past actions that may in fact be karmic. It is best to persist in this relationship until you have exhausted this heavy karma and fulfilled its purpose. Simply fleeing from this responsibility will not work as you may end up in a similar situation later. You will not be feeling very creative now and you may have trouble expressing your ideas. Financially it is also not a good time, make sure you save your money as best as you can by living on less than you normally do.
RELATIONSHIPS Began April 2020 through May 2021
Your relationships will be much more difficult during this time especially if you are finding that your relationship is quite dull and boring. You will be craving excitement and different experiences that could put your relationship in jeopardy. On a subtler level you may find that you just want more independence or freedom and your partner is too jealous or possessive to allow it. Even if your relationship is going well, it is a good time to sort out any problems you have especially if they have something to do with individual freedom and expression. A new relationship that starts during this time may not last even as it may seem fantastic at first, the moment you come back down to earth it may not continue to work well. You may seek out new and different kinds of entertainment, your tastes may be different now and it will allow you to experience different aspects of life you are not used to.
GREAT ABILITIES Feb 20 through May 8
North Node sextile Mars transit is a powerful time, providing a lot of physical strength, endurance, and ability. You may be feeling more driven, ambitious and intensely involved in life. You have more power to pursue adventures and get noticed. You may not be content to wait for opportunities. You go out and make your own. Setting the pace, you can have a big influence on those following in the same footsteps or having similar interests. You can act brave, rugged, and tough. You are willing to venture out first and not afraid to act decisively and quickly in reaction to situations.
The way you take action is often in line with with those around you and your timing is in step, as such they help you fulfill your soul’s legacy of acting on your passions, desires and beliefs. Be careful not to let the way you do things be too influenced by social mores as there is a tendency to let others decide which beliefs are “meant” to be acted upon instead of instinctively acting on your own.
NEW BEGINNINGS Mar 7 through Jan 2022
Your Saturn Return is one of the most important times in your life as a long cycle of experience is about to end. It is a significant time to evaluate and consider what you have been doing and have you achieved what you wanted or where you have gone wrong. Relationships may end, and jobs may change it all depends on whether you are happy with where you have arrived now. You need to do thorough examination of your life’s ambitions and goals, as well as your current situation and decide whether it has future or if it needs to be changed. Consciously or unconsciously you can prune your life of everything that is not relevant to who you are. Some changes may be quite painful to make but do not focus on this as it is only for short time and the longer you hold on to it, the more problems you will have in the future. If you have built your life around activities that are not appropriate this will be a time of crisis otherwise things will be much more solid for you in the years ahead.
MENTAL FEARS Began Dec 2020 through Mar 2022
During this period, you must be extra diligent about how you communicate, and ensure that your make your point as clear as possible. Any screws loose in your mind will come out now and haunt you, so it is best to ensure you have a clear understanding where you may have any distorted ideas or opinions about subjects.
This time will allow you to understand where these problems lie, but probably in a way that causes conflicts with yourself or other people around you. Confusion typically is more apparent now, especially if you have important decisions to make. It is not that your mind is inoperable, although it can go blank from time-to-time. It is just more open than usual and often recognizes ambiguity where before there was none. Emptying it of all thoughts can help to resolve those seemingly insoluble problems. The more you continually reflect on an issue the more uncertain you are likely become.
Avoid daydreaming or fantasizing too much and try not to be overwhelmed by fears and anxieties. It’s not likely that anything will go bad during this period, but if you dwell too much on problems you could end up having nervous issues or other health issues as a result. Watch out for deception either in yourself or others, make sure you can talk and discuss things with someone you can trust.
AGE OF AQUARIUS Began Dec 2020 through Dec 2021
For the last year, Jupiter, planet of growth, expansion and philosophy, has been travelling in the stern, structured sign of Capricorn. He’s been walking side by side with strict Saturn and intense Pluto, reflecting a time of crisis, difficulty and expanded fears. It’s been hard to see the silver lining in the stormy clouds, and Jupiter hasn’t been able to give his full gifts to us, He’s been limited in Capricorn, stingy and unable to access his natural philosophical faith and spirituality. No wonder we have all felt as if our luck has run out!
Aquarius is a much better sign of this bounteous planet, and will seek to expand our horizons when it comes to the topics of education, personal freedom, community and our ideals. Sounds better, right? Saturn also just moved into Aquarius, so limitation and lessons may still exist for some time. We may also feel as if our personal freedoms are restricted, yet Jupiter will find a way to make it through, despite the odds. This time may invite rapid change and an unpredictable, exciting energy through out 2021!
Jupiter will retrograde back into Aquarius in June, and then finally move fully into Pisces by the end of December 2021. By this time, we should have a good idea of what our goals, hopes and dreams are for a better, more connected world, and it’s likely we will be craving spiritual and emotional connection. We’ll also go from the rational and analyzing nature of Aquarius to the more empathetic nature of Pisces and back again – this can help bring much more balance to the way we relate to the people in our lives, particularly our friends and social networks. Jupiter in Aquarius loves reaching out online, communicating ideas through the element of air, whereas Pisces asks for more physical connection and heart-felt action.
The Jupiter in Pisces transit may also help us to learn to surrender that which we cannot always fight against – which is the activism of Jupiter in Aquarius – and give way where we need to. Sometimes, it’s in that surrender that the battle is won.
Jupiter in Aquarius, followed by Pisces, will expand the way we teach, learn and communicate. The way we fight our battles. It will align us to the greatest causes in our lives, and help us to find a more humanitarian way of being. We may connect with our tribe, the right tribe, and find wonderful ways of innovating and progressing the way that things are done. We can then use this forward-thinking movement to help people – and ourselves – find a true spiritual path, and learn to let go, forgive and move into a more intuitive and compassionate way of being.
PERSONAL TRUTH Began May 2020 through Jan 2022
One of the most important transits of the year occurs on May 5th, 2020: the Nodes of the Moon shift into new signs. As the Nodes shift, the energy of our lives shift as well. In order to fully understand the importance of this transit, we must first examine what the Nodes of the Moon symbolize in Astrology. The South Node, or descending node represents our past and our karma. The North Node, or ascending node, represents our future and the ability to create our destiny...in so much as we are able to overcome the lessons of the past.
The magic of manifesting when working with the energy of the lunar nodes is found grasping the concept that we are only able to fully move into the light of the future by embracing the shadow of our past. We will be given that opportunity for the next 18 months under the energy influence of the Gemini/Sagittarius axis, which is the axis of the intellect and knowledge.
Gemini is a mutable Air sign, ruled by Mercury. Mercury represents our lower mind, or how we learn in the here and now. It is our thoughts, and how we communicate them. Gemini is an energy associated with the people we choose to interact within our everyday environment. It rules the 3rd house of local travel and short trips close to home. Gemini is our primary education system and skill-building from one-on-one experiences with our friends, family, co-workers, and community.
Sagittarius is a mutable Fire sign, ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter represents abundance, luck, and expansion. Sagittarius seeks knowledge by examining higher truths. It rules the 9th house of world travel and the study of different cultures. Sagittarius studies different spiritual modalities in order to broaden philosophical ideals and beliefs based on known truths. Gemini is the student and Sagittarius is the teacher. Sagittarius wants us to study what other people believe and how they created the structures in their lives. Gemini wants us to search curiously within ourselves for our own personal truths and create a life that is in alignment with the personal viewpoints that we discover.
For the next 18 months, in order to focus on our future, we must embody the characteristics of Gemini to align ourselves with the North Node. At the opposite side of the chart, the South Node in Sagittarius represents us letting go of Spiritual beliefs that we have accepted as truth, which may no longer be in true alignment with our future vision. In order to move forward in our personal evolutionary process of growth in a way that also contributes to the collective process, it is imperative to adopt a child-like curiosity...an open-mindedness that allows the past to crumble in order to build a new future.
Gemini energy encourages us to implement a hands-on approach to our Spiritual learning. Instead of just reading about Tibetan singing bowls or Buddist meditation, we actually incorporate them into a personal daily practice in our home. In order to understand the world as a whole, first, we must fully understand the beauty all around us. We find it at the nearby creek, the field of flowers at the park, or the sunset in our own backyard.
AGE OF AQUARIUS Part 2: SATURN (Structural Change) Began Dec 2020 through Mar 2023
On December 17, 2020, Saturn moves into the sign of Aquarius and will transit there for about the next three years. Saturn is starting a new 28-year karmic cycle, and Aquarius initiates the shift from the dense Earth element into a swift Air element, that will last for the next 200 years! The Lord of Karma now moves into Aquarius free of the planets that created stelliums of powerful dismantling energy all year in 2020. A new paradigm in history begins as humanity moves into a revolutionary new energy. There will be a shift in focus and consciousness as the people begin to emerge connected, and community becomes family.
Aquarius is an intellectual and innovative sign that symbolizes the technological future. The sign of the water bearer, signaling the diversity of all ideas being brought together and poured out into oneness. It is ruled by the rebel planet Uranus that, along with electromagnetic, sudden, and eruptive occurrences, also represents the higher mind that exists beyond the constraints of time and the human ego. It is our avenue to receive messages regarding a time to come, by intentionally connecting to Source energy. This monumental shift into the age of Aquarius requires open mindedness and a willingness to do things differently. Technological advancements that improve the quality of life on Earth are on the horizon. Everyone can benefit greatly from the diversity of others, knowing that everyone is fundamentally the same despite differences. We are humankind.
Saturn energy has an influence of suppression. It is the planet of restrictions, limitations, karma, and time. As the ruler of Capricorn, the sign of serious business, the highest expression serves mastery of skill, steadfastness, and responsibility. The wise elder that requires hard work, knowing that the challenging experiences are a catalyst to growth and knowledge. While in the sign of Aquarius, it becomes easier to move beyond the limitations of the past. A shift in thinking that supports the authentic self-expression and honors our personal individuality. The emphasis is on healing the collective, and the common goal becomes working towards the good of all.
Aquarian energy is very equalitarian in nature. It is of the people, for the people. Saturn will be joined by Jupiter in this humanitarian sign, at the conjunction between these two giant planets on December 21, 2020. But not until after they meet at the karmic degree of completion at 29 degrees of Capricorn on December 15th. A time to close the door on themes and beliefs of operating that were initiated 28 years ago, apply the lessons learned, and move beyond.
The space available for fresh new energy on the 21st is relative to the degree of clearing and closure of the past that is completed on the 15th. Saturn sends a strong message that commitment and combined efforts will be required in order to attain the abundant future in Aquarius, provided by the benevolent influence of Jupiter.
Saturn will leave Aquarius on March 7, 2023, and ingress into the sign of Pisces. This will signify finally closing the door on the many karmic lessons that culminated in the year 2020. The Aquarian spirit is one of collective unity. A liberating energy that has the power to propel society past the outdated systems of old. The world is entering a new and exciting age of evolution. Saturn assures that all will be held accountable and also rewarded for the steady efforts, hard work, attention to humankind, and the planet that it inhabits.
MATERIAL CHANGES Began March 2019 through 2026
Uranus re-enters Taurus on March 6, where it will remain until 2025–26. Financial systems and food production may be in for a shock, since Uranus can bring instability, but this may be necessary to shake us from our complacency. On a personal level, many of us are looking for an improvement in our values and attitudes towards money and the methods we use to survive. Uranus and Taurus are an interesting combination to attempt to fathom. Taurus the sign that, out of the entire zodiac, is the most resistant to change meets the planet that insists upon it. Uranus challenges the status quo and forces both the individual and society to change and, in particular, to break from the past. From the purely Uranian point of view, clinging to the past can only hinder progress. From the deliberate, enduring, and persistent Taurean viewpoint, change not only might topple the much-beloved quiet life, it also threatens the most important thing of all: security.
Forecasts for the Uranus in Taurus years (May 2017 through April 2026) include financial upheaval, radical environmental changes, and a revolution in how we handle the planet’s resources. Uranus last traveled through Taurus from June 1934 to May 1942; in 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Banking Act and the Social Security Act, both of which significantly altered how U.S. citizens handled their savings. It also saw the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War (1936), Japan’s invasion of China (1937), the Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland (1939), and much activity from Nazi Germany, with finally the outbreak of World War II in 1939. From a Uranus in Taurus point of view, many of these happenings changed borders; land ownership changed hands. The way in which land was used also changed in several European countries.
Uranus in Taurus might well deliver all sorts of changes to various economic systems, but perhaps more interesting will be the changes in how we use our resources; how we use, make, and spend our money and what we spend it on. With Uranus, we know to expect more technology in the making and spending of money.
The ingress of an outer planet into a new sign often coincides with major world events. The very day that Uranus entered Aries (March 11, 2011), an earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, triggering the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Uranus in Taurus does give rise to individuals feeling that they are trapped by debt and that money is not offering them the freedom they would like, this could create tremendous growth in so-called sharing economies, or what some people call “collaborative consumerism” — the idea being that individuals can rent out their car, their bike, their apartment, their computer, almost anything, when they are not using it.
With Uranus entering Taurus, in addition to possible Earth changes, we could see shake-ups in the financial world. Disruptors of the financial status quo are already at play and likely to gain traction: cryptocurrencies, micro-banking, crowdfunding. We may see grassroots movements to free humanity from the control of the banking system, and free the Earth from an economy based on extracting and exploiting resources. On a personal level, we could become aware of the ways we feel restricted when it comes to money, and take steps toward liberation. Relationships and sexuality are also ripe for revolution, and we can expect trends like polyamory, ethical non-monogamy and sacred sexuality to continue to rise.
