Your 2021 Astrological Love Forecast

 

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Two cosmic powerhouses, Jupiter and Saturn, are hanging out in your sign for most of the year. They bring luck and ambition. After a few years of working on your self-confidence, you’re finally ready to share your sparkling self with the world!

If you’re single, expect to find admirers everywhere you look, especially in June. Your standards may be higher than usual, which is fine: you can be choosy. Just because someone isn’t the right fit for your love life doesn’t mean they’re not a potential friend for life.

Already spoken-for? The lunar eclipse in November might bring big changes at home and in love. Discontent may be stirring for you, so be ready to make a positive change.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

2021 will be more about focusing on yourself than on your love life. Your confidence will grow and you’ll feel like moving forward. This will be especially true from mid-may ‘til August.

From July onward, it may be a time for saying “buh-bye” to what doesn’t work for you. This may mean the end of an important relationship or even building a new role for yourself inside an existing one. “Out with the old,” will be your mantra.

If you’re in a steady relationship, the June 10th solar eclipse may have a big impact on the domestic side of your relationship. You may move in together, move, or even become parents. Whatever this means for you, this year is challenging you to be mindful of your work-life balance.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The year will begin in a good place for you, Aries, so harness that energy to build stronger connections with everyone around you... especially yourself. A big theme for you in 2021 will be cultivating your personal identity, whether you’re single or partnered.

Your ability to communicate should be heightened until Mercury goes retrograde in late September. Take that lull to focus on healing yourself from any hurt still lingering from past relationships, or any wounds to your self-esteem.

Your birthday should feel full of romantic possibilities this year thanks to Venus hanging out in your sign for most of the month. Let yourself be open to love in all its forms – from partners, from friends, from yourself.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

After the wild ride of 2020, you’re probably hoping for more stability. Sorry to disappoint. Changes are coming. The question is: will you let yourself get tossed around, or are you going to ride this wave?

Shake off things that aren’t working for you and say “yes” to the unexpected this year. If you’re single, that could mean some very thrilling dates and exciting new people in your life. If you’re partnered, it might mean a major shakeup.

Either way, you’re the one that’s in charge. So take the bull by the horns (so to speak). You’re in rare form this year, so be sure the choices you make are grounded in your real wants and desires, and not just a need to rebel.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

This year’s lesson for you: take inventory of what your real needs and wants are, and stay true to your heart.
2021 will bring many opportunities to make big changes, so be sure of the outcome you want.

March presents a unique opportunity to meet new people. When thrilling situations come your way in April, think before you leap. If you’re dating, this might be the right time to take things to the next level. A June solar eclipse in Gemini will invite

you to take initiative and find your independence. Venus goes retrograde at the end of the year, so your romantic energy may fall into a lull: be sure you’ve made the most of the year ‘til then

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

2020 placed pressure on your partnerships. Fortunately, this year, the pressure is off. Jupiter is hanging out in your intimacy sector for most of the year, which could boost your relationships.

Uranus will be influencing your social side for the next couple of years. Singletons will find themselves in the company of some of the most – uh – interesting potential partners they’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. While it may feel contrary to your nature, take some chances and enjoy the fun (especially this summer!)

For those who are partnered-up, you’ll find yourselves in uncharted waters this year. You’ll feel a different energy in your relationship. Explore new ways to connect. Now is the time to evaluate how you share your intimacy.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Ready for a challenge? Of course you are, Leo! Your professional life will be in conflict with your “you” time, especially romance. Being present in your love life might take a great deal of focus and determination.

For single Leos, this might mean feeling hot and cold on some of your prospective partners. For couples, it could mean feeling out of sync for much of the year. Either way, this might feel like a bit of a buzzkill, but it’s a secret blessing in disguise: you’ll feel pushed to step outside of your comfort zone and into something even more exciting.

For partnered Leos, things might get very serious this year. You’re being invited to grow: be sure you’re building on a partnership that will help you both enjoy life.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Not feeling focused on love? You’re probably not imagining it: your 2021 is emphasizing work, health, and routines. You may feel more inclined toward working on your New Year’s resolutions than opening up your Bumble account.

But lucky you, Virgos are notoriously strong multitaskers! Singles will find connections through their work network or wellness centers, even gyms. People will certainly notice your charms in July and August.

For Virgos who are already in a relationship, take stock of what you have and where you’d like to see improvements. March will be a good time to learn to better accept one another while communicating more about the things that you each need. 

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're ready to open up to something new this year. You're starting off the year with a little more joy and confidence, so harness that energy to start fresh.  You may feel drawn to new hobbies, new people, or new ways of experiencing life.

There is the hint that some things may be opening up and expanding while others are becoming more serious or simple. That’s okay! Let changes in your romantic life come.

Venus is in your romance sector for the month of February. Love will come easily to you as long as you let yourself be open to the new energy that’s surrounding you. You’ll be absolutely magnetic in the late summer.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You’ll need to be more flexible this year, which may feel like a tall order after the chaos of 2020. But if you’re able to be adaptable, this year might bring some real joy your way.

Your relationship “rules” are one area that may need to be flexible. If you’re single, let yourself be open to more dreamy, artistic types and get comfortable with keeping it casual for the time being. If you’re in a relationship, conflict may arise: downtime and self-care might be what saves it. Things will feel lighter in late May and June.

Take some time to focus on you. You’re learning a lot about how to be more in control of yourself, even when you can’t control what’s external.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Last year was a tight focus on your career or comfort. This year is all about relationships.

The Archer is a famously independent type, but 2021 is begging you to rely on others. Work on overcoming your deep-seated fear of relinquishing freedom. It’s a great time to grow beyond your old habits and stale ways of thinking. Problems may jump to the forefront of your mind, but always be looking for patterns you could be breaking.

The solar eclipse on June 10th could be a game-changer in terms of your relationships. For singles, this could bring along someone new and exciting. For those who are partnered-up, it could mean things could get even more serious.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Much of the cosmic pressure that was bearing down on you in 2020 has moved on, which can make you want to break out. You might find yourself drawn to people or situations that aren’t your normal type.

Your values might be front and center this year, making you feel particularly picky about who you spend your time with and how. It’s important to remember that a shakeup may just be what you need, especially with the November 19th lunar eclipse.

If you’re coupled up, June will bring lots of warm fuzzies. Take this month to take your connection to a deeper level. That’s great because late April through June will bring some serious spark, whether you’re in a relationship or dating.
