In terms of dating, what can you predict this year for all zodiac signs?

Passionate love and unconventional relationships sprinkled with beautiful surprises are in the cards for 2021, as Jupiter and Saturn start this year in Aquarius and its innovative, all-for-one and one-for-all mentality. With optimistic Jupiter entering dreamy Pisces this May, we’ll tap into all the feels along with some mindful and reflective energies that inspire spiritual abundance. Jupiter in Pisces asks us to turn up our empathy and compassion for both our lovers and ourselves, while strengthening our intuition for those in need of an extra dose of love. And remember, the more of ourselves we give to others, the more time we can focus on our soul care. Acknowledging our emotional boundaries helps us avoid any potential emotional burnout.

Taking love to the next level, lustful summer nights are magnified this year thanks to a sultry kiss between Venus, the goddess of love, and Mars, the planet of sex, as well as passion in the sign of the glamorous and creative Leo. This luscious combination asks us to ascend our love and surrender to the sensuality of our extravagant desires, further reminding us of our royalty. Don’t forget to turn the heat all the way up this summer and adjust one another’s crowns in the process.

What are some important dates to look out for in 2021?

Be sure to look out for June 27 – July 21. With the sexiest Venus and Mars conjunction in radiant Leo, July 13 is one of the strongest days for love and romance. Venus in Leo, with the extravagant influence of its fiery element, encourages us to pull all the stops as we show off our royal essence in matters of love, fashion, self-esteem and financial values. The waxing crescent moon in Virgo on July 13 serves as a container for us to organize our love lives, set clear intentions within our needs and fulfill our quest for sustainable love.

On Mars’ day itself, under a nourishing Cancerian Sun, the rendezvous between Venus and Mars will further amplify our love connections, providing the inner security for us to surrender to our desires and go after what we want with gusto, because there’s no such thing as too much love. This Venus and Mars conjunction doesn’t come along often — every two years to be exact.

Thanks to Jupiter in Pisces from May 13 – July 28, confident Leo in Mars asks us to embellish the physical, to turn up the charm and to engage in the love we’ve been dreaming up all year long. Physical desires will run deep as our summer fantasies encourage us to lead with heart and purpose. Create with ambition and love with confidence, for this summer love is one we’ll never forget.

As for Mercury retrograde, a phenomenon where Mercury appears to move backward, our second and third experiences of 2021 will focus on our ability to communicate through any misunderstanding with one another. Both retrogrades will be in their respective air signs of Gemini and Libra, representing communication and diplomacy. Mercury retrograde serves as an opportunity for us to reflect, reassess and redirect our energies as the planet of communication takes a three-week nap. Reflect on the past, re-ignite stagnant dreams or perhaps revisit creative projects you’ve put on the back-burner. Old flames may return and communication (or data) may get lost in translation, reminding us that our intention to cultivate a growth mindset is our greatest power. Be patient with yourself and remember, energy is your greatest currency.

  • The second Mercury retrograde of 2021 will occur in Gemini from May 29 – June 22. This explores patience in our thoughts and speech.
  • The third Mercury retrograde of 2021 will occur in Libra from September 26 – October 18. This explores diplomacy in our interactions and intentions.
  • Venus Retrograde in Capricorn will occur from November 19 – January 29, 2022. This inspires us to focus on our past love affairs and the healing we should take part in to begin anew, including the love affair with our spending habits.

Which zodiac signs are more likely to find love this year?

All the signs are love-bound this year. Do use the eclipses as a time for magnified reflection on themes of intimacy and passion, illuminated for the signs below:

  • Lunar eclipse in Sagittarius – May 26
  • Solar eclipse in Gemini – June 10
  • Lunar eclipse in Taurus – November 19
  • Solar eclipse in Sagittarius – December 4

The Gemini/Sagittarius eclipses will activate a gorgeous release, essentially a beautiful ending to allow for the flow of new energy to enter and guide us one step closer to our spiritual destiny. Mutable signs such as Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius will be affected the most by this.

The Taurus/Scorpio eclipses will activate the fixed signs – Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio – starting on November 19. Communication will be our theme through all of this, asking us to examine our relationships and conversations within our community, our partnerships and most importantly, ourselves. These powerful lunations will help us examine what is no longer serving us in relation to our beliefs, identity, values and intellectual pursuits. Even if we’re not ready to let go, the universe will do the letting go for us.
