The Tarot is the mirror of our soul. Each card reflects what’s not only going on within us, but also, symbolises our divine connection to the forces of the Universe – those which we can see and those which we cannot. The images printed on the cards are symbols that contain the keys to unravel all the mysteries of our existence. However, these images have a life of their own, and thus, they change whenever the cards are shuffled. Every shuffle infuses them with magic. Every shuffle infuses us with magic. And so it goes for the horoscope for 2021.
The following are divinely guided messages from The Universe through the medium of the Tarot. Though divided through the 12 signs of the zodiac, the message is highly personalised for you. The same force that guided me to pull the cards is the very same force that’s guiding you to read the message. I encourage you to keep an open heart and an open mind – that way, you’ll be more receptive to magic, and find the guidance you need for the fortnight.
For those who aren’t familiar with their astrological chart, I would suggest to read the passage pertaining to their Sun Sign – i.e. the zodiac sign that the Sun was passing through at the time of your birth. For example, if you were born on August 19, the Sun was passing through the sign of Leo. Thus, you would find your divinely guided message under Leo.
For those who are familiar with their astrological chart, I would suggest to read the passage pertaining to their Sun Sign, their Moon Sign, and their Rising Sign – also known as the Ascendant or the ‘Lagna’. The combined message will be all the more powerful for your journey.
We made it! We survived the iconoclastically dramatic year of 2020 – a year that will go down in history as one that transformed the world in ways that even the most imaginative fantasy fiction writers couldn’t dare imagine. Through the trials and tribulations, we pulled it together, and collectively we’ve evolved to hopefully become better versions of ourselves. I hope we can all now take all that we’ve learned, and thrive in the year of 2021. And thus, the stars bring us the following divine messages that’ll enable us to make the most of this beautiful (and hopefully) happy new year.
Here’s your horoscope for 2021:
This is the year for you to take charge. The Universe will bless many of you with the ability to lead by example. While most people may only be able to talk the talk – you’ll walk the walk – with your head held high, proudly catching the light, making the world take notice of your sheer brilliance.
Create the changes you wish to make, not only within yourself, but in the world around you. You’ll be surprised how far and wide the ripple effects of a simple change can truly be. Divine inspiration is all around you and there are greater forces at work to ensure that you receive all the fruits of your labour. You have the ability to inspire many who will support your vision. Go forth and be bold, unapologetically!
The Universe wants you to know that you and your loved ones are safe and protected. Trust the heavenly forces and surrender your fears, anxieties, and apprehensions to them – filling your heart and soul with the belief of security and stability. That’s the secret of allowing miracles to occur, and manifesting your heart’s truest desires.
In moments of doubt, when you’re feeling extremely sensitive or overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to take a step back. Doing so will not only allow you to see things clearly, but will also enable higher powers to divinely intervene and enable you to come out on top. Always remember that your prayers are not only being heard, they’re also being answered. A solid meditation practice will help you discover that beautifully.
Move beyond the surface chaos and understand the divine plan at play. That will happen once you allow yourself to let go of the cynicism and stop seeing the world through the lens of your past hurts. Instead, turn your attention towards all that you desire and wish to accomplish, and express gratitude for everything that’s got you to where you are today – especially the people who stood by your side, even at your not so finest hours.
Once you’re able to close chapters and end habits and situations that have kept you a prisoner of your past – doors that you believed were eternally inaccessible shall open up, leading to adventures and blessings that’ll keep your heart warm. Allow your childish wonder to overcome bitterness, let the light of optimism overpower the stagnant shadows of sorrow. It’s easier than you think.
Ground yourself. Find your roots and allow them to dig deep this year. This is the year where you need to focus on all things that are physical, especially your body. A regular exercise routine, as well as, a focus on what you eat and nourish your body with is of much importance. No crash or fad diets or trendy workouts – it needs to be a complete lifestyle reinvention that you can sustain for years – perhaps even decades.
It’s important for you to build a loving relationship with your body. Reinforce it with positivity and love. Criticising it will only wreak all progress. Learn to listen to your body, and actively take measures to heal whatever is needed. Gardening may also be a powerful hobby for you to go deep with. Even if it’s just taking care of one potted plant, you’ll be surprised what a healing and transformative experience it will be.
Allow yourself to rediscover a lost part of yourself. Life has taken you on such a dramatic journey, both high and low, that in order to cope with it all, there’s a part of you that you’ve forgotten or lost touch with. Be it an inner child, or even the belief in love, it’s important that you not only remember it, but wholly embrace it. This will allow the Universe to work its magic on your heart.
It’s also important to look into past relationships and reflect upon what all you learned from them, but also, how they changed you overall. If some of those changes have not been for the best, work on realigning that in order to create a safe space for your heart to blossom beautifully. Always remember that you are deserving of divine love, as well as, deep romantic love, and the love we get from a strong circle of friends and loved ones we trust. Working with divine feminine energies may just give your heart the ‘shakti’ it needs.
Be honest this year. Not just with others, but also with yourself. It is important that you stand strong and release all fears and apprehensions that prevent you from living your truth. After all, the truth can only set you free. Deception, especially of the self, will only keep you a prisoner of the web of chaos. Even if the truth is bitter at the start, embracing it will make it all sweeter in the end.
Sometimes we hide our truth out of the fear of being unrecognised and being misunderstood by others, not realising that doing so exacerbates the chaos. By suppressing the truth, we’re only blocking abundance and prosperity from our lives. It may be scary, but I promise you, the more you live your truth to the fullest, the more you’ll be supported by the divine forces of the universe. Truth is the key that unlocks miracles.
Self protection and self preservation is your mantra for 2021. This is the year where it’s important for you to draw definitive boundary lines and be vigilant about them. Doing so will not isolate you, oh no, but teach you the importance of self respect, as well as, teach others to respect your space, time, heart, and soul. You’ll be surprised how empowering this will be.
There’s an entire army of divine forces ready to take your side and enable you to achieve your goals. However, to access them, you need to believe you’re worthy of them. By building strong boundaries and practicing self-care and self-preservation, you’ll signal to The Universe that you value yourself and aren’t willing to expend your energies on people and situations that are unworthy. Thus, you’ll open paths to success and strut on them with your head held high.
There are forces in the heavens above that are protecting you. This is important to remember, because this is a year where you need to move beyond your fears and limitations, and trust that you’ll not only survive big leaps of faith (especially emotional ones), but also land safely and thrive on ahead. It’s also important for you to cut cords with the stagnant and toxic aspects of your past – especially your past self – and make room for love and joy to enter.
By cutting cords, all painful and fear-filled experiences will never repeat. This is a beautiful chance for you to start with a clean slate, and redesign your entire life. The Universe has your back in creating and manifesting this mighty transformation that’s almost like shedding skin and being reborn. Take this chance and make the most of it and tear down the walls you’ve built around your heart. Trust that it’s in good hands – yours!
Look beyond the illusion of the surface, for there’s so much more that lies beneath. You’re being called to not only dispel illusions – especially those we have of ourselves – and see reality for what it is, from all possible perspectives. Thus, it is important for you to inculcate a meditative discipline this year in order to foster grounding and cantering of your energies. That’ll give you the strength to trust your insights.
Some of you may even develop intuitive gifts if you can let go of scepticism. Those of you who possess them may even find them to be all the more powerful. Even those of you who don’t believe in them, or feel you don’t possess them, may encounter certain experiences that’ll strengthen your connection with the divine forces of The Universe. All that’s needed is trust – especially in yourself – and you’ll be amazed at the magic that’s manifested through it.
Surrender, dear Capricorn, let go of the need to obsess and plan. For there are forces much greater than you at play this year. Nothing shall be absolutely lost, only blessings (even those in the heaviest of guises) shall be obtained this year through divine lessons that shall come your way, opening you up to experiences that’ll take you to newer heights that you could never even imagine. Trust and remember that you’re not alone, and divine justice is being carried out and through honest self reflection, you’ll break all that binds and limits you easily.
Thus, this year, it is important that you practice mindfulness and the art of personal accountability. If you make mistakes, own up to them immediately. Apologise when needed without worrying about ‘losing’, and take time to learn from these mistakes, because they are after all stepping stones to success. Practicing all this will not only remove negative karmic bonds and anchors of fear, but will open you up to the splendour and magnificence of all that The Universe has to offer.
Forgiveness is the key this year that’ll unlock the door that’s keeping you from accessing all the magic of The Universe. Many of you may be drawn towards working with guides and coaches to help you not only forgive those that hurt you in the past (distant and recent), but also to forgive yourself whenever you’ve let yourself down. In case you don’t have someone to help you do so along the way, forgive yourself for not finding them, and work on it on your own. After all, even with a guide, the journey of life is a solo one.
Always remember that forgiveness is an act of self-love. It’s important that you don’t need to allow your life to be defined by situations or people that don’t support your happiness and joy. You are a divine child of The Universe, and no one can take that away from you – not even your ego-self that loves creating hurdles for you to stumble upon. So forgive. Forgive others. Forgive yourself. Forgive the world out there. Forgive the world within. With time, it’ll all make sense, and you’ll be surprised by all that manifests.
Choose to be the embodiment of love this year – especially towards yourself. Many a times our compassion extends to those around us, leaving ourselves starved of it. Know that loving yourself and making healthy life-affirming decisions for your own betterment isn’t a selfish act – but perhaps the purest act of love. Choose to be the embodiment of peace this year, because unnecessary competition and the need to always win isn’t what’s going to fulfil our soul. To quote fellow Oiscean, Moria Rose, “When one of us shines, all of us shine!” Thus, do what is right for everyone involved. A collective victory is far more powerful than an individual one.
Even in the most difficult circumstances, with the most difficult people, and even when you find yourself being most difficult, once you allow love and peace to be your guiding principles, you’ll be surprised how things quickly smooth over. In your heart of hearts, you know this is true. This is the year to follow it and open yourself to all the wonders that this practice can achieve. It’s also important to allow regular ‘detoxing’ so as to prevent physical and emotional clogs from blocking your progress. Whenever in doubt, exhale chaos and trauma, and inhale peace and love. Believe me, it works!
