Capricorn: 22 Dec - 20 Jan

You’ve probably noticed that your life is calmer. After a very rigorous couple of years, the planetary attention has moved away from you. That might not sound like a good thing, but it is! You’ve had to deal with so much over the past few years, but now that is over. Your challenge now is to work on self-love. If you’re too hard on yourself, you’re likely to attract those who will also be hard on you.

Aquarius: 21 Jan - 19 Feb

You can expect the coming year to be one to remember, hopefully for all the right reasons. You have the lucky planet Jupiter in your sign from January to May and then from July to December. Jupiter will make you even more attractive to other people. You’ll be more confident and upbeat. However, Saturn bringing up the rear could work against you. If you find yourself too tired or serious to enjoy life, make some changes. If your relationship is in trouble, now is the time to work on it. This is also a good year to turn a friend into a lover.

Pisces: 20 Feb - 20 Mar

May, June and July could be very lucky months for you when it comes to relationships. Jupiter will be dipping into your sign for a brief stay. When that happens, the whole world is going to open up for you. You’ll feel cheerier and find it easier to believe that you can have a happily ever after. So make sure you stay open to relationships at that time. If you’re attached, your partner will probably appreciate you more and vice versa. If you know past upsets are holding you back from happy relationships now, this is a great year for therapy.

Aries: 21 Mar - 20 Apr

While it doesn’t look as though romance will be number one on your agenda in the coming year, there are several astro-indicators that it will be a bigger priority than it was in 2020. For a start, hard work planet Saturn has left your Career Zone after two years. Work will take up less of your brain space, freeing you up for more fun. Plus, lucky Jupiter is improving your social life. Single? You’re more likely to be introduced to someone. Attached? You and your beloved can have more fun together.

Taurus: 21 Apr - 21 May

With the professional planet Saturn in your Career Zone in 2021, there’s a very good chance you’ll be working so hard you’ll barely have a chance to come up to breathe. Whether single or attached, try to make sure you take weekends off. You’re a super-sensual sign – you need to be cuddled! Eclipses in your Self-Worth Zone in 2021 also make it an amazing year for you to work on your confidence. Your self-esteem will directly impact your love life, since the more you value yourself, the more others will.

Gemini: 22 May - 22 Jun

This year brings more eclipses in your sign and in your Love Zone. So if your love life isn’t already feeling like it’s lying on a bed of hot potatoes, it probably will do by the end of this year. If you went through a big break-up in 2020, there’s nothing at all to suggest that you won’t find the love of your life in 2021. That’s how powerful the energies are in your chart in the coming year when it comes to love and romance. It’s fair to say you might not even recognise yourself by the end of the year.

Cancer: 23 Jun - 23 Jul

The end of 2020 saw some big planetary changes happening. For one thing, nasty old Saturn moved out of your Love Zone after a stay of several years. So if your love life was difficult between 2017 and 2020, you know why. With Saturn gone, your prospects for happy relationships in 2021 are much higher. In fact, the highest outcome you can hope for is that 2021 will show you the power of love. You still have magical Pluto in your Love Zone, which means 1) avoid bullies and 2) work your magic with relationships.

Leo: 24 Jul - 23 Aug

It’s another big year for you and all your most important relationships. What you’re being taught is that whatever the relationship, you have to show up, be present and be sure not to waste your time on anyone who isn’t being kind to you. If you’re attached, it could be a year when your partner makes more demands than usual. Be kind, obviously, but maintain that Leo dignity. Saturn in your Love Zone can herald some tough love lessons. If you’re single, think carefully about who you get involved with.

Virgo: 24 Aug - 23 Sep

If you’re single, this could be the year you have been waiting for. Honestly, you have the best love stars you’ve had in over a decade, thanks to the presence of the lucky planet Jupiter in your Love Zone on and off throughout 2021. Open yourself up to lots and lots of options – that might mean going online, so take a chance! If you’re happily attached, 2021 should be a fun time for you and your beloved. However, if you’re in an unhappy relationship, 2021 could be the year one of you decides to make a break for freedom.

Libra: 24 Sep - 23 Oct

You might not want to hear this, since you’re a sign that’s all about relationships, but the fact is, you are going to have to make time for love if you want romance this year. If you’re attached, and you want to keep your relationship going, you really will need to schedule in romance. If you’re single, you will have to make a bigger effort to get out and meet people. Even if 2021 doesn’t lead to true love, it could lead to success, so there’s always that!

You are still the star sign most likely to have a roller- coaster love life, and that’s not going to change any time soon. Moreover, 2021 is going to be a bit of a tumultuous year – we all need to pick up a lot of pieces. Expect your love life to be chaotic, but hopefully in a good way. At worst, it could leave your head spinning in a way that makes you feel dizzy. Overall, your love prospects are much better in 2021. Having fun is the secret to romantic success for you this year.

Sagittarius: 23 Nov- 21 Dec

The astrological fact of the matter is that 2021 is going to be a big year for you in pretty much every way. There are a series of rolling eclipses affecting you and your love life. If you’re single, it could well be the year you meet your partner for life. If you’re attached, but your relationship is on rocky ground, tread carefully. Avoid anyone who seems to be trying to control you and don’t try to fence your partner in. Remember, you’re the freedom sign!
