A Happy and Prosperous New Year Dear Readers! After a great 2020- great as in colossal in terms of the lows, the few highs and the wakeup call, here comes a year that promises us a huge shift! After all, we are heralding the age of the Aquarius; the kickstart being the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius on 21Dec2020, after 600 years in an air sign! I believe the year gone by has taught us resilience, patience and the perfect platform to understand the difference between our wants and our needs. This year will get you to have a major shift in your thinking. In 2021, we can look forward to out of the box thinking in the truest sense, a sense of equality and the establishment of it, a certain rebelliousness to old, traditional, time tested ways/institutions and lots more both personally and as a collective.

In the tarot world, the card that represents this year is the Hierophant or the High Priest. It represents institutions, higher learning, tradition, religion and more. It is associated with Taurus. I was amused by the contradiction; the card is a number five in the major Arcana and the number five is all about change. The age of Aquarius is about revamping the old and rigid ways of thinking that no longer serve us and yet, the hierophant is about upholding old ways, rules, the sacred truth behind clichés and age-old practices! Then again, Odin with one eye also represents the Hierophant and while he has always upheld rules and importance of it, his blind eye suggests turning a blind eye and allowing a few rules to be bent and broken every now and then for the larger good. Interestingly, Aquarius, the sign of great change and rebellion is a fixed sign and the children of Uranus don’t readily accept change themselves but they cause major shifts with their innovative thinking and ideas.

The Saturn and Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius, ruled by both Saturn and Uranus is another paradox! People start sweating when they hear Saturn has entered their sign but Saturn isn’t as bad as it is made to sound. Saturn is the strict Dad, who will keep getting after you till you come up to the required standard while his son, Jupiter is all about luck and good fortune- about risks taken turning out profitable.

In mythology, Saturn is the father of Jupiter and he liked eating newborns and would devour his children but when Jupiter/Zeus was born, his wife fed him a stone instead. Later Zeus or Jupiter, along with his siblings overthrew Saturn/ Cronos and became the King of Gods just as earlier Saturn had rebelled against his own father Uranus to establish his power! Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and the traditional ruler of Aquarius. That’s more mythology than I expected to delve into! Anyhow, we can expect a lot of push and pull this year if we don’t balance our lives. That balance begins from within. As Mahatma Gandhi says “Be the change you want to see in the world”! Simply put, work hard and watch luck favour you beyond your wildest imagination. Dream big and think positive!

Let the mantra of the year be “As within so without” or “As above so below” knowing that this is what alchemy is all about; knowing that the microcosm reflects the macrocosm and vice versa. Let us begin with changing ourselves to make this Universe brighter because of us!



  1. Pardon my poor knowledge and interest in astrology/tarot...I just hope and pray for a happier and safer 2021 😊

    1. Rajat sir.. Something that you needn’t really worry or be apologetic about! Since you are married to someone who dabbles in and possesses a fair amount of knowledge in astrology and tarot.. all you need is to seek and you shall find the answer 🤩 So far so good in 2021! ♥️

  2. Happy New beginnings... Hoping that the alignment of planets bring out the best in us.

    1. Thank you Anvita. Wish you and everyone on this planet smoother times though the truth is that it is a perception shift that will win us our battles this year!
