The year 2021, a brief prediction


In December 2020 Saturn (on the 17th) and Jupiter (on the 19th) will leave the sign Capricorn and enter Aquarius.

This causes a vast change in energy. Aquarius is the sign of freedom, and it will not be easy for authorities to keep up the measures related to the corona pandemic.

As such this might not be too complicated as the authorities themselves also will be nourished by another type of energy and may strive for more freedom.

New solutions can be thought over, resulting in a situation where more is possible and still our responsibility for the vulnerable will be taken into account.

For this reason, we can expect an era, where authorities will try to limit the negative aspects of freedom in the interest of a responsible and free society and within limitations where needed.

This period will last approx. a year. In 2021 Jupiter has left Aquarius and will be in Pisces. Between May 11th and July 28th Jupiter will be in Pisces too. In Pisces Jupiter is strong and will have healing effects.

Saturn remains in Aquarius until March 2023. Jupiter in Aquarius indicates there is a need for freedom to develop. Saturn in Aquarius indicates this freedom cannot be unlimited.

There should be a context of limitation within societal boundaries. Relevant systems such as health care, agriculture, ecology, economy should be modernized and focused on equality. This is only possible with cooperation between all involved. Groups only striving for own interests, without taking into account the interests of others, should be learned to adapt.

The first thing to follow is the question: What can we do for the future of all life on earth and how should we adapt, to have a future life in balance together.

All efforts should be put according to this strategy and authorities will have a role to remind us to this.

Writing this, I am aware I also describe the root of all problems, our limitations to oversee all there is. We have a certain arrogancy, where we expect to be able to solve everything bothering us in the future.

This is a fiction; we are too limited for this. While we are part of (and possibly the biggest) the problem, we will not be able to overthink or invent the ultimate solution. The only solution is to live in harmony and taking into account others in full awareness and unpersonal everlasting love.

The first important energy for the coming period will be the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. This will take place on December 21st 19.21 MET, shortly after the Sun has entered Capricorn and the winter solstice has been reached.

On December 20th, so shortly before the conjunction I took the picture underneath. It shows Jupiter in the middle and Saturn close on top (vaguer).

Jupiter and Saturn make this conjunction every 20 years. It happens 6 up to 7 times in the same type of element (fire – earth – air – water). With the conjunction on the 1st degree of Aquarius, a series of conjunctions in the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are left behind. The coming conjunctions over a period of 120-140 years, all will be in air signs (Gemini, Balance and Aquarius).

The last time Jupiter and Saturn were conjunct, was in May 2000, a period known as the Great conjunction in Taurus. Apart from Jupiter and Saturn, also Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars were part of it.

In NL we had a disaster in Enschede explosion by fireworks. A whole section of the city was damaged with demolished houses and over 30 people killed.

But the conjunction was not the immediate reason for this. Other dynamic aspects where Mars, Pluto and Uranus were involved and making dynamic aspects to each other and to the conjunction were the direct reason for this.

Next month, other dynamic aspects are involved, possibly causing unattendances and also resulting in unexpected incidents.

The conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in the earth signs have gradually shown us the scarcity of land and the need for growing regulation in the use of it, for all societal functions.

With the conjunction in air signs, there will be a growing regulation in the space around us, and also the use of it by planes, satellites, drones, wireless telecommunication etc. Possibly even our thinking might be regulated, think for instance on the effects of artificial intelligence.

On world level, the year 2021 will have to do with the issues of freedom and limitation of it. Some issues will be a result of things happening in 2020, where authorities have limited freedom for different reasons. Sometimes as a reasonable action of prevention and in other cases as a false opportunity to regulate things in personal advantage. A.o. we can think of COVID-19, the ecological problems, freedom of speech, inequality of races, etc.

The energy that will feed the discussion in 2021 will be caused by the planets Saturn and Jupiter.

In addition, and for a part of the year first Jupiter and later on also Saturn (classic ruler of Aquarius) will make a dynamic 90-degree aspect with Uranus (modern ruler of Aquarius).

Jupiter is the typical energy for development and growth, but also exaggeration.

Saturn is the typical energy for limitation and responsibility and Uranus is the energy for freedom and new inventions.

This causes a challenging playing field, where we will see a number of interesting games developing this coming year, not only on a world level, but also at a personal level.

Periods with more freedom, such as for instance January, March to May and August up to November will be followed by periods with more regulation February, June, December).

Especially the months June and July can lead to circumstances with conflicts as we have also to face the energy of a solar eclipse.

In between we can have to cope with new insights, especially in ecology, possibly helping us to be prepared for the future. In addition, we certainly will have to cope with restorative actions from authorities, trying to improve societal systems (such as for instance, health care and democracy). This can also lead to new societal unrest and conflicts.

The theme for 2021 easily could become “Freedom within restrictions”.

Astrological forecast for March 2014

Immediately at the beginning of the month we will experience a remarkable change of energy. Mercury has turned direct on February 28th. Mental brightness will reappear, especially as Mercury is in Aquarius, the sign of new inventions.

On March 1st on 17:25 MET the planet Mars will turn retrograde, our energy levels will be minimalized especially with respect to physical energy. Our need to realize things in a physical way will fade away. Of course the real effects in someone’s personal life will be depending on the placement in the personal horoscope. Another significant point is that the change of direction of Mars will take place in conjunction with the Northern Lunar node.

This also means that in this situation the Southern Lunar node in Aries will be stressed.

We night easily fall back to the leisure of patterns of own interest and egocentric thinking and acting, while the Northern Lunar node in Libra urges us to pay attention to partnerships and balance of interest. Unfortunately not really an energy the world needs at this moment looking at the many armed conflicts we see in the world.

However with Mars retrograde situations will not have the tendency to escalate.

This might come out when Mars runs direct again form May 20th.

When we take a look at the horoscope of the moment Mars turns retrograde the New Moon on the 11th degree Pisces earlier this day catches the eye. According to the astrological mandala the 11th degree of Pisces symbolizes need for mankind to take a next step on the path of spiritual growth. Together with the symbolism of the 28th degree of Libra where Mars turns retrograde, emphasizing our belonging to bigger wholes, this gives a nice indication for the way we might develop the coming months. Conscious that we are part of something greater and from where we can feed our inspiration and initiatives in the interest of community and mankind.

We will experience a lack of energy for the coming months. Therefore it is important to use the energy cautious and consciously.

On March 2nd Saturn will also turn retrograde (until July 20th). Changes could therefore take place outside the control of authorities. As such this is not necessarily a problem while authorities often have the attitude to defend structures and positions even when they have become useless or not in the interest of community.

On March 8th we feel the positive energy of an aerial trine formed by Moon, Mercury and Mars. We will probably remark a lot of emotional but also balanced discussions leading to mutual understanding.

On March 20th we will experience the spring equinox, the beginning of spring.

As the Sun now enters the same sign where Uranus resides since a couple of years, we arrive at a period of constructive changes with impact on society.

On March 22nd Mercury and Neptune will be conjunct. Our thinking and reasoning will not be very clear. It is even possible to be misled or to be caught by higher ideals.

On March 30th we will experience a second New Moon this month (a so called blue Moon).

Especially for this new Moon is the conjunction with Uranus and the mutual trine between Mars and Venus. This New Moon will be at the 10th degree of Aries, is according to the astrological mandala symbolized by “A teacher giving new symbolic forms to traditional images”. It stands for revision of attitude at the beginning of a new cycle of experience.

It feeds the experience that we are at the dawn of a period of vast changes. However these changes might be realized in a harmonic way, also in our personal lives, provided we do not remain in obsolete situations and defending stubborn against changes.
