What do you do when your whole world turns upside down? You work hard and push yourself to overcome challenges you have no choice but to endure. Similarly, now that you've conquered 2020, you have the resilience to move forward, and this is what your 2021 yearly horoscope is about: progress. Though there are a series of astrological aspects to consider and learn from, you'll be delighted to learn that the upcoming year's astro-weather will be a breeze compared to this past year's.

The future has never been as important as it will be in 2021, and it's all thanks to the age of the element air we're currently stepping into as a collective. Themes revolving around progress, revolution, and social movements will ultimately reign, but more importantly, it will be an opportunity to create a significant amount of change in the world as we know it. The relationship individuals have with Mother Earth and the planet at large will also be highlighted during this time.

The change we seek, both individually and collectively, starts and ends with us. Though there are pros and cons to the four elements, the mere fact of having generational planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto) transit through earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) throughout 2020 is one of the reasons why the energy felt stagnant and relentless. On a brighter note, however, this is precisely what brought us together and inspired the revolution that's about to take place.

The Great Conjunction — when Jupiter and Saturn joined forces in Aquarius for the first time in over 600 years — will inevitably dominate 2021's astrological essence, but this is only the beginning. Taskmaster Saturn is the planet of limits and structure; Jupiter magnifies everything that it comes in contact with; Aquarius is symbolic of society, revolution, and collective consciousness. Together, these planets will shift the focus from the material and tangible to the intellectual, but it will eventually face off with Aquarius' celestial ruler, Uranus, in Taurus.

Taurus is symbolic of comfort, values, and security, and Uranus is the planet of rebellion, chaos, and unexpected change. Since the cosmic rebel planet's shift into Taurus, there have a been a series of global crises, but maybe this is what is triggering people around the world to wake up and make a difference. Having said that, there will need to be a lot of change if we wish to continue residing on planet Earth, which is why I believe 2021 will enlighten us in more ways than one.

Here's what a brief overview of what 2021 has in store, according to your zodiac sign:

Aries: Raise Your Voice And Tap Into Your Brilliant Mind

You're upgrading your mindset and surrounding yourself with like-minded groups of individuals who inspire and motivate you, Aries.

Gemini: Rebrand Yourself And Redefine Your Purpose

Step into your power and sparkling authenticity, Gemini. Go back to school, venture into unknown territory, and invest in some self-promo.

Libra: Expand, Explore, And Discover Your Individual Truth

Carpe diem is your vibe this year, Libra. Your innate curiosities will take the wheel and inspire you to expand your personal horizons this year.

Sagittarius: Stop Being So Terrified Of Commitment

When all else fails, you always have someone to lean on, Sagittarius. Despite the innate pressure of having the south node in your sign, the year 2021 invites you to find freedom in your one-on-one partnerships, without shying away from the obvious. Everything from your early upbringing to your beliefs around partnerships will come up for review. It's time to create a healthy balance in your life and in your relationships.

Capricorn: Get Organized, But Don't Be Afraid To Rebel

You're not the same person you used to be — and that's progress. The year 2021 will highlight everything from your daily rituals to your beliefs around values and financial security. It's a time to cultivate more compassion for yourself and let go of that which stifled your hope, freedom, and enthusiasm once upon a time.

Aquarius: Be Bold, Unique, And As Unconventional As Possible

There's no such thing as being alienated when you're capable of shining brighter than the cosmos, Aquarius. The year 2021 will not only empower you, but also challenge you to be the best you can be. No one said it was going to be easy, but you have what it takes. Relationships, collaborations, and friendships will also come up for review, but it's all about doing the work and staying true to you. Growth is inevitable — in more ways than one.

Pisces: Stop Sleeping On Yourself And Make Your Debut

It's time go out there, chase your dreams, and show the world what you're really made of, Pisces. Ideologies and beliefs around career, authority, and reputation will be highlighted, especially if you haven't taken the necessary risks in your professional life. What's stopping you from persevering toward your soul's truth? What once stifled your freedom will no longer fit into this dimension. This year will invite you to build a stable home within and all around you. You are safe, brilliant, and so worthy.
