Health is wealth, Virgo. And with Jupiter in Aquarius for most of 2021, you’re likely to enjoy an increased sense of well-being. That is, if you’re willing to work for it!
You see, Jupiter’s not the only one gracing your house of health this year. Saturn’s also in Aquarius, promoting greater self-discipline and structure in your lifestyle. Responsible choices around diet, exercise, and other habits aren’t always fun. But the positive effects on your body, mind, and mood make them ultimately rewarding.
With your ruler Mercury in Aquarius from January 8-March 15, you’ll have some extra time to explore the latest health and wellness trends. But while you’re often an early adopter, it might take a while to integrate them into your life.
After all, as both Jupiter and Saturn form squares with Uranus in Taurus (Jupiter-January 17; Saturn-February 17, June 14, December 23), life can be unpredictable. And it’s challenging enough to keep your regular self-care routines going strong. World events are also erratic, making it hard at times to maintain an optimistic outlook. But meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices provide you with a vital support system.
Your most uplifting time will be from July 21-September 22, when the inner planets (Venus, Mars, Mercury, the sun) move through your sign. These planets trine both Uranus and Pluto in Capricorn. You’re supported in broadening your horizons and considering new possibilities for who you can be, where you can go, and what you can create in life.
The only limit is your own imagination. As the Virgo planets also oppose Neptune in Pisces, the gap between “possible” and “impossible” can seem much wider than it actually is. But you can either use this as an excuse to give up, or allow it to inspire and motivate you more. Virgo, the choice is yours!
Eclipses in Sagittarius (lunar May 26; solar December 3), Gemini (solar, June 10), and Taurus (lunar, November 19) are opportunities to release self-limiting beliefs. Old conditioning and outdated assumptions about life can prevent you from seeing all the options available to you. It’s time to start seeing yourself—and the world—in a whole new way!
Regardless of relationship status, Virgo, the theme for your sign in 2021 is: Hopelessly devoted.
With Neptune in your opposite sign of Pisces, you remain “in love with love” and eternally true to your romantic ideals. You and your partner are on each other’s wavelength—like two hearts beating as one. If you haven’t found your dream lover yet, you’re happily keeping the faith until they come along.
Between February 18-April 3, the sun, Venus, and Mercury move through Pisces and rendezvous with Neptune. Harmonious aspects with Uranus and Pluto help to set the mood, increasing spontaneity, passion, and pleasure.
Jupiter in Pisces (May 13-July 28) heightens the atmosphere. But he also makes it easier to go overboard when it comes to love. It’s all too tempting to idealize your love interests, or project your own fantasies and aspirations onto them in unhealthy ways. Avoid sacrificing too much of yourself to find (or keep) the “perfect” partner.
After all, Virgo, with your character and integrity, you don’t need anyone to complete you. And with Venus in your sign from July 21-August 15, your self-love is well intact. No coincidence, then, that this is also when you’ll attract the most attention from others! Still, as Venus sits across from Jupiter and Neptune, they may be more in love with the idea of you than anything else. And that can be a lot of pressure to live up to.
Fortunately, Venus’ trines with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus help you come down from that pedestal with ease and grace. You’re not interested in being anyone’s ideal. You’re looking for something real—even if that means letting lovers in on your less-than-perfect moments.
Whether you’ve just met or have lived together for years, this can be a vulnerable thing. Certain parts of yourself may not feel safe or comfortable to share. But as Saturn in Aquarius forms a sextile with Chiron in Aries (February 9, June 23, November 26), facing these fears and tackling the tough stuff together helps you build intimacy and trust. There’s no need to reveal everything about yourself, Virgo—as long as you’re willing to show your true colors.
Virgo, you’re the ultimate team player: You’ll wear as many different “hats” as you need to, to get the job done. And this year, you’re taking this versatility to a whole new level.
With the north node in Gemini, you’re leaning towards new professional goals and roles. These may feel like a stretch if you lack the typical background or credentials. But what you don’t lack is the motivation to learn. And fortunately, you’re quick enough to learn as you go.
This will keep you pretty busy, though! With Jupiter and Saturn together in Aquarius (your work house) for most of the year, you’re likely to see your workload, hours, and responsibilities increase. And while this can be a burden at times, it brings plenty of rewards as well.
Unexpected opportunities pop up throughout the year, to continue your education or boost your profile through travel, teaching, speaking, or writing. But as Jupiter and Saturn challenge Uranus in Taurus (Jupiter-January 17; Saturn-February 17, June 14, December 23), these often seem to come at inopportune moments. Still, as much as you dislike having your workflow disrupted, you’ll probably want to say yes. Learning and growth are your top priorities this year, Virgo—so find a way to make it work!
With your ruler Mercury spending extra time in your career and money houses this year, it’s all about working smarter, not harder. In Aquarius (January 8-March 15), he helps you focus on the task at hand. In Gemini (May 3-July 11), he sets your sights on new opportunities. Finally, in Libra (August 29-November 5), Mercury helps you resolve any compensation concerns. You bring a valuable, diverse set of skills to the table—so make sure it’s reflected in your paycheck!
