Prepare for a pivotal year in your life, Leo, as the planets above are shifting your path forever. While 2020 posed many collective challenges, we will see the next stage in our global evolution take place in the year ahead. All Leos will have plenty of reason to celebrate throughout 2021—both in love and career. Peer into what the stars predict for your year ahead!
At the end of 2020, two powerful planets moved across the sky from you and will remain there predominantly throughout all of 2021. Saturn—the taskmaster planet that rules life lessons and always forces you to grow stronger—will stand directly across the sky from you until 2023. This Saturn opposition represents a significant turning point in any person's life.
On one hand, it may signal that many Leos will have a harder time pursuing their personal goals and plans at this time, as Saturn will stand as an obstacle in your path. This opposition often manifests as a time when everything that you wish for becomes harder to attain as authority figures, bosses, or partners are at odds with you and will clash often and inconveniently.
Leos will look at 2021 as a time when they were required to become much clearer about what they wanted and how they wished to get it. With such lovely cosmic alignments encouraging personal growth and happiness, you'll need to temper the blessings as you face the obstacles that are sure to also manifest as well.
This is because the Universe wants to help all Leos grow and become stronger than ever before. This year begins a life chapter about perseverance—one where karma proves that you're steel forged through fire. Focus and grit will be needed now. Challenges will redirect you, and any relationships that fade will push you to understand what kinds of unions actually fulfill you and what kinds were just holding you back.
One thing you can say about 2021 is that it won't be a comfortable or relaxing year. Instead, it will feel like an obstacle course with a glorious, golden trophy at the end. You must work strategically to move forward, all the while surrounding yourself with soul mates and other perfect partners. Even if you sometimes feel alone, you're most certainly not. Just learn how to rely on the people who actually have your back.
This year will show Leos that love is sometimes an uphill battle. That's because of the many destined events taking place throughout 2021. First and foremost, whether you're single or attached, you'll encounter many wonderful planetary alignments that favor union and romance.
Leos who have been in partnerships for a while may benefit more from Jupiter's luck, whereas single or casually dating Leos are more likely to enjoy the magical eclipses of destiny. Prepare for a year that you will not soon forget!
At the end of 2020, an extremely rare and important astrological event took place: the great conjunction. This is when the energy of Jupiter and Saturn fuse. Jupiter—the ruler of luck, miracles, and growth—synchronizes with Saturn—the planet of longevity, strength, and time. Whenever these two planets form a great conjunction, they show where each zodiac sign will spend the majority of the twenty years ahead learning to restructure, grow, and build something of value.
Since May 2018, Uranus—that electric planet of revolution and change—has resided within Leo's sector of professional advancement. Uranus will remain here until 2026. During this time, be prepared to see you ambitions and career shift before your very eyes. Depending on where you are in your professional journey, this might create a varying degree of effects.
As the planet of genius but also chaos, Uranus will end up forcing you out of your comfort zone no matter what. Leos who've been living within an illusion of what they desired their career to be—but ultimately haven't worked toward—will now be forced in new directions. If you're pursuing something that isn't meant for you, 2021 will be a year of exploration to discover what will fulfill you and bring you the impact that you wish to make.
Many Leos will embark on entirely new paths as they seek more freedom, expression, and fulfillment than previous careers had allowed them. For the Leos who've enjoyed many years of significant success, they, too, will see a new chapter of their career emerge. This will push them to be more courageous and adventurous as they assert their leadership and wield their influence like never before. The key to dancing harmoniously with this Uranian energy will be letting go of what limits you and embracing the change that will let you fly free. The more that you try to hold onto what came before, the more chaotic and tumultuous your professional advancement will be.
