Sagittarius Yearly Forecast 2021
For you, it’s always a big deal when Jupiter changes signs. Your ruler cleans house for you in a specific area of life when it does. It turfs out problems and replaces them with shiny new solutions and opportunities. The dog days should now be over when it comes to your cash. Jupiter along with Saturn in your Now Age 3rd says you’re back in business – in more ways than one.
As you will know if you have already read your Jupiter forecast for 2021, we have a highly unusual Jupiter cycle this year. Because instead of spending 12 months in one sign as it normally does, Jupiter will visit two. It begins the New Year handing you the power of ideas to move you ahead. Then in May, it enters Pisces and your 4th of home, lifestyle and family.
We say Jupiter is happy in here because it was Pisces ruling planet before the discovery of Neptune. It will only stay two months in here however before heading back into your 3rd in July. You might want to check your chart for any planets at an early degree of Sagittarius or any of your fellow mutable signs – Pisces, Gemini and Virgo. If you have them, expect Jupiter’s ability to bring you opportunities, solutions and lucky breaks to increase. One of our astrologers can give you more insight into this.
Show and Tell
The main flavour of the year for the Now Age will be business, studying, communication, commerce, writing, publishing, media, the internet and getting around. Above all, you need to be doing something with your ideas now. Presenting, speaking and teaching could even play a role for you.
There are some astrologers who think that photography should not be included in your 3rd house but I disagree. It’s not just that a picture can be worth a thousand words. Your 3rd is ruled by Mercury which is associated with quicksilver. Before the advent of digital photography, film relied on silver to capture that image. So, your Instagram feed or visual messaging and branding is also in focus. It’s all communication.
You start the year with Saturn and Jupiter in your 3rd. And Mercury which rules this house retrograde in here at the end of January. Mercury will meet Jupiter not one but three times. First when it enters here at the beginning of January. Then again when it is retrograde in February and a final time when it heads direct again. Three times the charm, Sag? Something like that. So, think revision and refinement of ideas. Beta test but don’t launch until March when Mercury is full-throttle again.
You are both the message and the messenger combined during this cycle. So look to how you communicate. Bear this in mind if you are using agents, representatives and go-betweens which your 3rd also rules. You need to ensure they get your ideas or what you are trying to sell or achieve. Unless you are 100% sure of this, you are better off acting on your own behalf so your message isn’t diluted. This especially applies to the eclipses this year which are mostly on your 1st/7th house axis. Allowing someone else to speak for you at these times may not be your best approach.
Allow 2-3 days either side of the eclipses to be certain. The dates are at the end of this forecast. Aside from the eclipse in your 6th which takes place in November, the eclipses could well involve you and a past, present or potential partner. This is also due to the on-going presence of the North Node in your 7th. Remember, eclipses conceal. A total eclipse is a total cover-up. Now what’s under wraps may be neither good nor bad. But take it you are in the dark during these times.
If someone returns during the Mercury retrograde/North Node conjunctions in your 7th in May, and especially around the eclipse in here on June 10, please take things slowly and don’t jump straight back in. Yes, there is the potential for reconciliations and new beginnings. But it’s all very well for someone to say they have changed. They have to prove it. So, if you are looking at giving someone a second chance, by all means do so. But don’t shy away from insisting you go back to the beginning and date again as if you had just met. And please don’t brush the reasons you split up under the carpet. Unless you want history to repeat itself that is.
This is due to the first of two eclipses in your sign. A total lunar eclipse which takes place on May 26. The second will take place on December 4 at the time of the new Moon in your 1st. This will be a total solar eclipse. You are utterly in the dark at these times. June 10 brings you an Annular Solar Eclipse in your 7th. This is an eclipse which produces that ‘ring of fire’ effect. I like to think of this as a ‘ring of truth’. But you still don’t have the bigger picture – yet.
So, If this involves a long-term relationship and emotions are stirred up at the time of the eclipses, you may want to wait before jumping to conclusions or making major decisions. What this eclipse cycle is likely to bring to light eventually, is how you define or see yourself. And how you see yourself in terms of your relationships. This may be a process of unfolding. When we see ourselves differently, we see our relationships in a new light too. Again, like all eclipse factors, it’s neither good nor bad. It’s part of our process in simply being here!
Real World Experiences
Best times for love and attraction? Or any kind of activity involving self-promotion which dating is after all. Mars in your 7th from Mars 4th could see the temperature rising between you and someone new. And this occurs the day before Mercury makes its final pass at Jupiter in your 3rd. It’s brilliant for business or simply bringing passion into that conversation. Flirtation could sizzle. Or ideas burn bright.
Selling yourself should not be a problem. And all kinds of partnership opportunities are highlighted right up until the end of May when Mercury takes another retrograde turn – this time in your 7th.
By now, Jupiter has reached your 4th which it enters on May 13th. Home, security and emotional wellbeing will be your focus now. Jupiter opens doors and for some Sagittarians, this could be one to a new home or the door to that office. If it enhances your sense of security, these are the kinds of benefits you can expect with Jupiter in here.
Just be aware that Jupiter in here along with Neptune can make you uncharacteristically over-sensitive. Yes, it can also boost your intuition. But the flip side to this is you pick up on so many feelings, ‘atmospheres’ and vibes from people around you that you become overwhelmed. You may feel the need to retreat during these times. And you could notice this even more next year when Jupiter returns to this house for a more lengthy visit.
You also have Neptune as a long-term house guest in your 4th. Alerting you to the need for boundaries. This could involve a family member, someone you share your home with, a tenant, landlord or something which appears to intrude or step across the line. This could even be yourself as Neptune in here asks you stay organised or even set limits. Especially if like many of us you are now spending more time at home. Watch what you eat, drink, take and for escapism in all its many forms. Which can include anything from denial to binge watching.
On the other hand, this can hand you inspiration when it comes to psychic or creative work and offer a doorway to living a more soulful lifestyle. It all depends how you harness this.
Certainly if you create structure this year, you should see the financial restrictions you have operated under recede now. However, avoid major financial decisions at the time of the partial lunar eclipse in your ‘other’ money house – your 8th, on November 19.
Best Times for Aiming High!
Jupiter will return to your 3rd on July 28th and will now remain in here until December 29th. Late June and July are starred for holidays and travel with Venus and Mars in your 9th. And possibly even a fling with someone with overseas connections or distinct Sag qualities that you love!
Venus will arrive in your 1st well ahead of your birthday cycle this year. Landing on October 7th. This is an excellent time to update your look and also for socialising and circulating. Look to setting new goals at this time as Jupiter shifts forward in your 3rd from October 18.
Once the Sun lands in your 1st, you’re in the mood to say ‘I do’ to something lasting this birthday cycle. They or it are close to your heart Sag. Venus alongside Juno isn’t just seeking romance. It’s playing for keeps. Just keep in mind that the eclipse in your sign on the 4th holds the seeds of a new beginning. But you just won’t be able to see it quite yet.
Venus is slowing down to make one of its rare retrogrades. This will occur in its ruling 2nd from Dec 19. As well as all things love-related being on hold for now, understand this also applies to money matters too. We touched on this back in November. Avoid splurging over the holiday period if you can. You are a naturally generous sign but ask yourself if you feel the need to show love via the amount you spend on people? Is there another way to express this? Sometimes it truly is the thought that counts.
The year ends with ruler Jupiter in your 4th from December 29. It’s going to be a year where you focus on lifestyle, your home and family. Expect expansion. Perhaps in the literal sense as in moving to a larger home. Or your family could expand. Jupiter is about to hand you the key to a new lifestyle in 2022. 2021 sees you pave the way for this.
