Welcome to a new year, Aries! The Ram has plenty to look forward to on this great adventure in 2021. On a personal level, there are many twists and turns for your ambitious sign to conquer. There is a ton of firepower sparkling through the skies, especially after your personal planet Mars kept those irons hot and tested you through a great deal during 2020's long yet passionate retrograde phase. A quick recap of the timing on this: Your home planet entered shadow on July 25 at 15 degrees, stationing retrograde on September 9 at 28 degrees; then the god of war stationed direct on November 13 at 15 degrees; and is finally clearing shadow to start this brand new year on January 2 at 28 degrees!
This is a moment of truth for really taking action on those important lessons that put you through your paces in 2020. It was as if you were going through some sort of rite of passage! You were often faced with feelings of anger and rage on a very intimate level. Like most Aries, you worked within multiple layers of emotional realms including feelings of inadequacy and decisions about what battles you actually needed to fight. A major crossroads now brings you into a more aligned point of independence.
From here, it will be far easier to stand up for what you want, what you believe in, and what you actually feel most driven toward accomplishing on a daily basis. For most Rams, that means you have to be the bigger person in many arguments, and become more structured in your method of approach in all aspects of your life. You might have to decide between your own needs and what others are trying to get you to do. The most important piece of advice this year is to always bet on yourself at the end of the day!
All in all, this year is looking great for the passionate sign of Aries! It's imperative that you take extremely good care of yourself, as the major aspect of Saturn in Aquarius in square to Uranus in Taurus will ignite rebellion in your zones of material wealth and friendships. You might get more by getting along than by going out alone. Discover how much others really adore youâincluding on a romantic level!
Ask yourself what you really want in your relationships, because someone is totally out there for single Aries, you just need to open your eyes! For those already in relationships, this is the perfect âmake it or break itâ kind of year. Saturn asks you to find freedom within your commitments. Those couples able to handle this can power through anything!
As a fiery sign, your love life is going to have a major breakthrough on the level of respect and appreciation. Your sign gets a gift when the Mars retrograde from 2020 leads out of the shadow phase on January 2, 2021. As your home planet is truly meant to teach you the realms of the divine masculine, expect a major interplay between healthier dynamics in all of your relationships in general.
Maybe you found yourself caught in certain patterns of the past, and will quickly realize what actually needs to be corrected and healed. Many Rams may have needed one-on-one counseling or therapy sessions of some kind. Certain relationship dramas were brought to the surface to be cleansed by the fires of the warring planet himself. Unresolved issues of your past could have popped up in a major way with the intensity of 2020 giving you a fuller perspective on your life, and even bringing you a connection that taught you about your own power.
At the end of the day, remember that you're the most independent sign in the zodiac, and you are here to take full control of your life. You always have to answer to yourself no matter what. Now it's time to take your homework from last year out into the world, and recognize that you deserve real and true love!
Career life is looking on the upswing for the Ram! You've done a lot of self-work over the last few years, and there was nothing like the test of 2020 to really get you in the groove. Your dedication was truly tested with both the great conjunctions that took place in 2020.
In 2021, you're tackling your battles with a more collaborative and cheerful vibe. If you felt bogged down by last year's intense great conjunction energy and Mars' retrograde transits, it's your time to step into the new. You'll feel better knowing that you're not alone, and you'll find a major break in business relationships. Tracking the movement of Mars through the signs is important, not only for the sake of your mental prowess, but also as a way to map your developments on an energetic level.
This year's series of eclipses will propel you to the next level in your ability to effectively communicate and market yourself. This is true for Aries on all different types of career paths. As the North Node transits through the sign of Gemini and your personal third house, it will emphasize your relationships with neighbors, siblings, and coworkers. You'll build better connections, and also feel more inclined to commune and network more effectively. People want to hear what you have to say, and that's a good thing if you work in market sectors that require you to use your voice.
