Virgo Forecast for 2021: Work & Business
You have arrived at what is not only a major professional year but at what could be a defining year, the start of a new era and the year that everything from now will build on from. While this is a year when there is wave upon wave of developments on the job and career fronts, there is a strong and powerful undercurrent that has changed everything. That change came in the closing weeks of 2020, when just before Christmas Saturn and Jupiter both returned to your work sector, together here for the first time in six decades. Saturn is here now until 2023 and this is what will lay down the foundations for years if not decades to come, taking his time to create secure and sturdy foundations. Jupiter on the other hand is here to create job growth, to expand your options and create a new sense of what's possible. Unlike Saturn, who has begun a slow and steady three year journey, Jupiter will race through your work sector in five months, something that will normally take him 12 months.
Jupiter will leave on 14th May but this can be seen as his first 'run through', retrograding back in from 29th July to 29th December to go back over things more thoroughly. It is against this background that the rest of this year's planetary activity will play out. Mercury's return to your work sector on 9th January, the Sun's return on 20th January and Venus' on 2nd February will ensure there is plenty of support during Jupiter and Saturn's early months here but also for the more mundane focus on work and job matters that happens at this time every year. This phase will run its course on 16th March. However, with Saturn here all year, Jupiter moving in and out, the Moon returning every four weeks and two Full Moons, the first on 24th July and the second a month later on 23rd August, work and job matters will never really go off the boil, indicating a busy year.
Meanwhile, while not with the same power that Jupiter and Saturn possess, having the North Node in your career sector all year means that you will have a constant sense of professional direction and momentum. It is the North Node that will be responsible for turning a New Moon on 10th June into a solar eclipse. This is right in the heart of the planetary activity on the career front which begins with Mercury's return on 4th May and runs through to his departure on 12th July. You might notice a theme here, in that Mercury begins and ends the faster planetary activity on the job and career fronts this year, which for a planet that will normally spend 14 to 15 days in each shouldn't be possible. Retrograde turns will keep Mercury in both for over two months, with this smart and intellectually savvy planet and your ruling planet and keeping an eye on things.
