Aries Forecast for 2021
There is likely to be some mixed emotions as you move into 2021. Starting the year with Mars, your ruling planet in Aries will give you the drive and motivation to begin the year on your own terms. However, with Mars' longest visit to Aries in 32 years now in its final days, there is a chance that you are feeling battle weary. Mars will leave on 7th January and this is when the benefits will start to unfold, albeit slowly and in unexpected ways over the coming months. The main impact from Mars' departure is that a lot of the fight will go out of things and as you start to appreciate that 2021 is not a repeat of 2020, start to feel excited about what the coming year might bring. Saturn and Jupiter are gone from your career sector but the professional momentum not only continues, things are likely to take a lucrative turn during January and February.
January is also a chance to get a feel for the new powers on the throne and the planets that will make 2021 a very different year to 2020. It was Jupiter and Saturn's return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking in the closing weeks of 2020 that has taken a lot of the pressure off you and especially professionally. Yet it goes beyond that, with a sense that you no longer have to prove or push yourself 24/7, yet as a result, the things that you had to fight for in 2020 will start coming to you more effortlessly in 2021. Above all, the main impact from Saturn and Jupiter's return to your friendship sector is a sense of camaraderie and that as a team player you don't have to shoulder the full weight on your own. Saturn is here now until 2023 but Jupiter will leave on 14th May before retrograding back in on 29th July.
When Jupiter leaves he will return to spend five months in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, where he will begin preparing for his return to Aries in 2022 and the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. Another thing that will give 2021 a sense of movement and exhilaration is that Mars, your ruling planet and the planet that can fire up your passions, drive, warrior and competitive spirit is on the move. Having spent the whole second half of 2020 either at a standstill or going backward and forward over the same ground, Mars is now racing across the heavens and invigorating multiple areas of your life over the course of the coming year. Missing too are the relationship challenges of 2020.
