2020 Planetary Forecast

December 2020

Dear Ones,

We truly are on the precipice of a new beginning as we enter 2021. Fortunate Jupiter and karmic Saturn will come together in Aquarius, the sign of brotherly love, on the Winter Solstice-Monday, December 21, 2020. This once-every-20-year phenomenon last occurred in Aquarius in 1405, just prior to the Renaissance. It portends a lightening of the darkness and the potential for greater global harmony and understanding.

The Winter Solstice on December 21, 2020 also marks the moment when we celebrate the return of the light in the northern hemisphere as the days become longer and coincide with the annual holiday festivities of light and hope. Use the days leading up to the Solstice, the Holiday Season, and the New Year to celebrate the light within you and to affirm and pray for the growth of greater light around the world.

The new year of 2021 also features a series of rare planetary alignments-beginning with the re-structuring prompted by the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on December 21, 2020. Change continues with the radically surprising energy of Jupiter in Aquarius squaring change-oriented Uranus in Taurus on January 17, 2021. Soon after, karmic Saturn in Aquarius squares innovative Uranus in Taurus on February 17, June 14 and December 24, 2021. (Saturn and Uranus align in such a square every 22 years.) This emphasizes the need to make changes that will lead to greater progress in the future. These changes often are preceded by a struggle between the "old" and the "new." 

In addition to the ground-breaking alignments of change-oriented Uranus with Jupiter and Saturn (both newly in Aquarius), boundary-dissolving Neptune will be in Pisces throughout 2021 (along with Jupiter in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021), portending radical and subtle changes in our collective attitudes, desires, motivations-and changing abilities to harmonize with each other. Neptune was last in Pisces at the beginning of the U.S. Civil War. Pluto, which will be in Capricorn in 2021, was last in Capricorn at the beginning of the American and French Revolutions.

Radical and Revolutionary Influences
So, we will be operating under some very revolutionary, even radical, influences in 2021. The consequences of the pandemic that began in 2020 will be integrated in 2021, and its reverberations will be felt for at least the rest of the decade as we fix those aspects of our individual and collective systems that no longer work in a post-pandemic world. We surely will be ready to begin again on a higher note-one that includes greater equality between races, genders, and nations, and one that involves sharing goods, information, and resources rather than operating out of narrow self-interests. We will be moving into a reality that features greater transparency, clarity, and honesty. Lifestyles also will become "lighter" as we let go of formalities, procedures, material and mechanical solutions from the past in favor of speedier, lighter electronic means of communications and travel, learning, and experiencing.

Choose between the "Old" and the "New"
In your personal life, you are going to face a choice between the "old" and the "new." Which direction are you going to go? You will have many, many choices to make in 2021 as erratic planetary patterns prompt you to integrate transformative changes initiated during the last year-and also push you to carve out a path for the future. Doing the same old thing the same old way won't work very well, and also will mean you are missing one of the most dramatic periods of transformation offered to humanity by the celestial spheres in many decades.

Embrace the "New" and "Innovative"
In general, if you embrace the new and innovative-or at least compromise, you will do better than if you fully hold on to the past. If you embrace Spirit and your spiritual nature, you will be happier than if you focus on material objects as a source of security.

Explore "New" Ways of Thinking and Living
Due to the radically transformational energies pouring onto the planet beginning in 2020 and continuing in 2021, you will feel happier when you explore new areas of thought, creative ways of living, and new ways of being than if you hold onto your habits from the past. Much soul-level evolution, progress, and growth is possible this coming year.

Politically, there will continue to be confrontations between conservative and more radical ideologies-until ideological compromise is found. Governments around the world will be struggling between the old governmental and structural paradigms and what they fear will be anarchy. The reaction initially will  be overly authoritative or even totalitarian regimes. Democratic balance and equality will be difficult to hold onto at times as dominating forces lurk and try to manipulate the public mindset for nefarious purposes and control-oriented agendas. Eventually, democratic concepts will take a firm hold. In the meantime, it is important to stay vigilant-and conscious. As you focus on your spiritual eye in your meditations, you will develop greater mental, emotional, and physical strength that will protect you as waves of conflicting thoughts and information besiege you.

Many of you asked about the outcome of the U.S. presidential election throughout the fall season. As I said in the 2020 forecast, the person who gets the most votes either may not finish his term, or may be impeded at the beginning his term. Justice will prevail, but various planetary positions indicate a somewhat rocky transition. See my 2020 planetary forecast for further details of Tecumseh's Curse and other influences. Please note that there will be a powerful solar eclipse on December 14, 2020, the day that the Electoral College meets to vote for the next President of the United States. Eclipses can introduce the energy of sudden reversals. Uranus, also a planet that indicates sudden change, will conjoin Mars on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021. Combined with a square to Uranus from expansive Jupiter on January 17, 2021, this could portend civil unrest, violence in the streets, or even some type of military intervention. It will be a highly energetically engaging time for citizens around the world. Please pray for a peaceful transition to the higher age.

Economically, financial markets will be even more erratic in 2021 than they were in 2020, sometimes defying gravity and logic. Some sectors will exponentially prosper while others will languish. Investment-wise, those sectors that are the most flexible and adaptable will flourish. Many buildings and locations will be re-purposed. We're already seeing this as streets turn into dining venues. And hotels are turning into homeless shelters. More stores and shopping malls will be converted into housing, especially encampment-style housing where many people live communally under one roof.

Other prosperous businesses will include: drones, airborne shipping and transportation, and even businesses that support the "flying car" of the future. Businesses that purify or energize the air and water will be popular, as well as oxygen delivery systems, and heating, cooling and ventilation systems. Back-up power delivery systems, medical technology and alternative health care systems will do extremely well in the coming year. And remote delivery, communications, and entertainment systems will prosper. Needless to say, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and technologies that provide virtual 3-D reality experiences will be popular. On the other end of the spectrum, equipment that facilitates a move back to nature, such as hydroponic gardening, rooftop gardening, and back-yard farming will also find a fertile market. After all, people will be seeking more and more ways to become self-sufficient, independent, and live "off-the-grid."

Slow down, Meditate, Pray
As we approach a major turning point at the Winter Solstice and through 2021, take time to slow down. Pray. Meditate. A mindful, peaceful attitude will be the greatest gift you can give yourself as erratic energies flood onto the planet and jolt those people who are not firmly anchored in their spiritual selves, in their inner cores, and in their souls. See yourself as a pillar of light holding firm and strong.

For more historical background...
For further information on the planetary patterns affecting the decade of the 2020s, please visit my 
planetary forecast for 2020, where I explain in great detail the meanings of each of the planetary alignments that will continue to reverberate through the 2020s. Scroll down in the 2020 forecast to read about how Tecumseh's Curse affects U.S. Presidential elections every 20 years, in tandem with the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction every 20 years, and the upcoming series of Saturn-Uranus squares every 22 years.

Further exploration...
If you like living in "interesting times," the year of 2021 will not disappoint. As always, I am available to provide astrological counsel and guidance throughout the year, and always quickly respond to your requests for information and follow-up questions. I look forward to sharing the journey with you through 2021!

See the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction in the Night Sky!
You can now see Jupiter and Saturn after sunset in the southwestern sky. Jupiter and Saturn, both in Capricorn, will appear to be a "double star" when they draw close together at the Winter Solstice. At this writing, Jupiter is the brightest planet in the sky and Saturn is the fainter planet to its left. By Christmas eve, the two celestial bodies will begin to separate and reverse positions, with Jupiter on the left and Saturn on the right. Mars also will appear several hours later in the evening sky as a yellow-orange twinkling light. Despite the unfortunate suffering in the world, the divine sure is providing a reassuring reminder of its presence in the heavens. Enjoy!


I Offer My Good Wishes & Prayers to You!


May you be blessed with a peaceful, healthy, loving, fulfilling new year of 2021!


Love & Light,

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
You will experience a sense of relief and relaxation when Mars, your planetary ruler, leaves the sign of Aries on January 6, 2021. This transition from Mars in Aries to Mars in Taurus comes after the fiery planet has spent an unusual 6 months in the Sign of the Ram. (Mars typically spends 2 months in each sign, but stayed longer in Aries due to its retrograde in late 2020 in Aries). The concentration of Mars energy in Aries from late June 2020 to January 2021 has brought a single area of your life into high focus. This high-focus area likely involved your identity and your mode of self-expression. Mars' celestial connections with lucky Jupiter, karmic Saturn, and profound Pluto throughout the second half of 2020 also may have highlighted issues of how you express your energy in the world. Now is the time pick up the pieces and create a new life on more solid, stable foundations. It is particularly fortuitous to put your attention on your sources of income, your budget, and the way you use your resources. You will create a greater sense of security by stabilizing the flow of goods and services in and out of your life. A series of planetary alignments between karmic Saturn and innovative Uranus in 2021 will help you find an interesting group of friends with whom to express your abundant creativity. Peak periods of change come on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021. Think carefully about who and what you'd like to carry forward from your past. Best new relationship prospects come in October 2021. A series of eclipses on May 26, June 10, November 19, and December 4, 2021 will inspire you to study a new topic or deepen your mastery of another subject. 



TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
You have 3 productive periods of manifestation in 2021 under the planetary influence of karmic Saturn in Aquarius aligning with innovative Uranus in Taurus on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021. This means that you will be able to solidify plans that you have been thinking about for as long as 21 years, when Saturn and Uranus last faced each other in Taurus and Aquarius. This is a time of rectification of past plans, hopes, dreams, and visions-so you may bring your ideas into alignment with today's realities. This is a period of decision-making that will determine the direction your life is going to take for the next 12 years. Your most fortuitous directions involve perfecting the balance between tradition and innovation. If you try to stick to the past only, your new ventures will falter. If you throw out the past and dive into the unknown, you also will be on shaky ground. But if you blend and incorporate wisdom you have gained in the past with your vision and new ideas for the future, you will reach the perfect balance necessary to move forward with success. A series of eclipses on May 26, June 10, November 19, and December 4, 2021 will help you create firmer financial foundations for the future.


GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)
Three periods of rest and relaxation will be yours when Mercury, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde in 2021. The Mercury Retrograde periods will occur from; January 30 to February 20, 2021; May 29 to June 22, 2021; and September 26 to October 18, 2021. You will feel strong currents of mental energy-and new ideas-throughout 2021-with time for slowing down to introspect and integrate past lessons during the Mercury Retrograde periods listed above. Your challenge will be to match present reality with your new ideas. Ask a Libra, Aquarius, or Taurus for their perspective if you feel unclear about how to move ahead. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 26, 2021 and a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini on June 10, 2021 will enable you let go of an unhelpful aspect of your emotional past. You will be able to  express yourself in a clearer way that is a true reflection of your soul. This also will help you make the appropriate adjustments to your core approach to life in the future. A Partial Lunar Eclipse on November 19, 2021 will help you put to use a talent you partially developed in the past. A total New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 4, 2021 will help you solidify your gains and connect with the right people to assist you on the next stage of your journey.


CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
A series of powerful lunar and solar eclipses in 2021 will help you get in touch with a memory from your past that you no longer need to hold onto. When you locate this forgotten incident and the reaction you experienced long ago, imagine yourself putting the memory into a golden bubble. Now, see the bubble landing in the palm of your hand and gently blow it away so it wafts into the infinite. This memory is no longer yours, but now belongs to the collective consciousness in the unknown beyond. You are free. These influential eclipses, which occur on May 26, June 10, November 19, and December 4, 2021, will free you from the emotional limitations of the past. Three alignments of karmic Saturn with innovative Uranus in 2021, on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021, will also help you comfortably let go of traditions that no longer support you while you gracefully integrate the wisdom you have newly acquired to create new and better patterns that suit your style. Begin by making one small change in your home-and see how the energy shifts and ripples out from there into the world. You are a child of the moon, so you well understand the ebb and flow of change.


LEO (July 23 - August 22)
The most active periods for you in 2021 come when karmic Saturn aligns with innovative Uranus on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021. This will be a time when you will be able to blend workable ideas from the past with your vision for the future. Neither clinging to past traditions nor immersing yourself into the unknown will produce the best results. Your path to success lies in the fine art of compromising between the past and the future, between the old and the new, and between yourself and others. The middle path will be the most prosperous path for you. A series of solar and lunar eclipses on May 26, June 10, November 19, and December 4, 2021 will introduce you to new people. These people will help you implement your new ideas in beneficial ways for yourself-and others. Jupiter and Saturn in your opposing sign of Aquarius in 2021 will help you connect with more people who will help you re-structure your life, while preserving the aspects that have been working all along.



VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
You will have an opportunity to reorganize systems and structures in your life under the influence of Saturn in Aquarius in 2021. You will notice that your nervous system relaxes when the daily details of your life are orderly and organized. Take time to make simple or even small refinements in your daily routines to experience the greatest sense of ease in 2021. You will have an opportunity to incorporate new concepts into your overall outlook on life when innovative Uranus aligns with structured Saturn on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021. You are ready to see old situations in more accepting, less judgmental ways. A lunar eclipse on May 26, 2021 will enable you to interface with the world in a more casual way. A solar eclipse on June 10, 2021  will help you reconfigure a section of your home. Another lunar eclipse on November 19, 2021 will help you answer within yourself a longstanding spiritual question. A subsequent solar eclipse on December 4, 2021 will enable you to take steps to create even greater peace and harmony in your home environment. 


LIBRA (September 23 - October 23)
This is a positive time to relate to your neighbors in ways that establish beneficial interdependence between you and your neighbors for years to come. There may be a need to exchange goods and services with people living in your vicinity that will make your life easier going forward. With Saturn in the communally-oriented sign of Aquarius and innovative Uranus in the pragmatic sign of Taurus, you will have the opportunity to weave together practicality with originality in the coming year. A series of eclipses on May 26, June 14, November 19, and December 24, 2021 will facilitate even more new ways of cooperating with the people around you. This will be an opportunity to learn and grow through connecting with people you don't normally interact with. You will be especially ready to share you creative resources when innovative Uranus aligns with structured Saturn on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021. Loving Venus, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde on December 19, 2021. This will give you an opportunity to re-connect with loved ones from the past toward the end of the year. 


SCORPIO (October 24 - November 21)
Profound Pluto, your planetary ruler, in the structured sign of Capricorn throughout the year of 2021 will prompt you to construct and re-construct your thoughts in novel ways. This will lead to exceedingly creative self-expression in 2021. Your greatest connection to your soul will come under the eclipses on May 26, June 10, November 19 and December 4, 2021, when the veil between worlds is temporarily lifted and the altered vibrational matrix gives you a peak at future potentials that are normally hidden from view. The spotlight also will be on you when karmic Saturn and innovative Uranus align in the fixed signs of Aquarius and Taurus, respectively, on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021. The opposition of innovative Uranus in Taurus to your Sun in Scorpio will awaken dormant creativity, and the square of Saturn to both your Sun and Uranus will help you manifest your worthwhile innovative plans.


SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Lucky Jupiter, your planetary ruler, in Aquarius, the sign of brotherly love, and Saturn in Aquarius in 2021, will make this a year focused on connecting in new ways with new types of people you normally don't  interact with. You will derive great benefits from exchanging ideas, concepts, and philosophies with these people. This could be in a meet-up group, a class, a lecture, or an online chat room. You will benefit greatly by keeping an open mind. The alignment of karmic Saturn in Aquarius with innovative Uranus in Taurus on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021 will help you reconfigure any stagnant routines. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26, 2021 will bring new people into your life and enable you to see the many people already in your environment in a new light. Wait until after the subsequent New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini on June 14, 2021 to make a decision about what to do or how to re-align important relationships. A partial Lunar Eclipse on November 19, 2021 will help you reconfigure a daily routine in a more efficient way. A total New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 4, 2021 may temporarily prompt you to step back and assess a situation that you will ultimately decide to approach in a more streamlined way.


CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
Your planetary ruler, Saturn, aligns with innovative Uranus 3 times in 2021, giving you the opportunity to do old things in new ways. Rather than steadfastly clinging to tradition, you will benefit from interweaving traditions with new practices more suited to the world you now are living in. Your greatest periods for innovative growth come when Saturn and Uranus align on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021.  These celestial alignments will help you manifest your creative ideas in financially profitable ways. For best results, think strategically-and prepare for the long-term. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 26, 2021 will support your creativity. A New Moon Solar Eclipse on June 14, 2021 will help you implement a new, positive, daily healing routine. A partial Lunar Eclipse on November 19, 2021 will support your creativity. A total New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 4, 2021 will bring you inspiration through a dream. Loving Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn on December 19, 2021, giving you an opportunity to re-connect with the people you love.



AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
You may feel a little more in the spotlight than usual with lucky Jupiter and karmic Saturn traveling through Aquarius in 2021. You also will have the opportunity to bring your innovative ideas to the fore when pioneering Uranus aligns with structured Saturn on February 17,  June 14, and December 24, 2021. This entrepreneurial energy will support you to build new structures that will support your life in the future. These structures could be financial, organizational, or actual material buildings. This is a good time for home or office renovations, or moving objects in your space to facilitate a more efficient flow of work, healing energy, or interpersonal interactions. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 26, 2021 will support the formation of a creative partnership. A New Moon Solar Eclipse on June 14, 2021 will help you connect with a congenial group of people. A partial Lunar Eclipse on November 19, 2021 will support you to either clean or refurbish an area of your home. A total New Moon Solar Eclipse on December 4, 2021 will bring you new insights through time spent in contemplation and introspection. Loving Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn on December 19, 2021, giving you an opportunity to re-connect with people from your past. 



PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Lucky Jupiter, your planetary co-ruler, briefly dips into Pisces in 2021, from May 13 to July 28, 2021, before the planet of good fortune re-enters Pisces from December 28, 2021 to May 10, 2022. This will be a time to enjoy the fruits of your own past personal efforts as well as to rise to the forefront of a group effort you are involved in. Jupiter in Pisces lends a lilting, flowing quality to relationships and the general quality of your life. You will enjoy music more and you will relish time with loved ones. In general, you will enjoy letting go of the mundane details of life to merge with the more relaxed, spacious, loving side of your nature. Combined with spiritual Neptune in Pisces throughout the year,  you will flourish when you engage in spiritual practice. A highlight comes when Jupiter and Neptune conjoin in Pisces on April 12, 2022. Until then, enjoy the build-up of this loving, creative, spirit-centered energy. Your creativity and rich imagination are running high at this important evolutionary time. When innovative Uranus aligns with structured Saturn on February 17, June 14, and December 24, 2021, you will find new ways of expressing your creative talents from the level of your soul.
