2021 Jyotish Sidereal Horoscopes: It’s Time to Use your Voice.


View this post on Instagram


*Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based, and also intuitive science has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light—within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. The meanings, implications, and purpose of jyotish is therefore different, as are the details used for prediction and the indications given below.

These horoscopes will give you general themes for the year to come based on your rising sign. Horoscopes are based on your sidereal, or Jyotish rising sign, not your Western or Tropical sign. There is likely no correlation. You may also use with your sidereal Moon or Sun sign for extra insight.

The major transits impacting all signs this year are Saturn in his own sign of Capricorn.

Jupiter debilitated in Capricorn, as well as transiting Aquarius. Rahu exalted in Taurus, and Ketu exalted in Scorpio. Individual results will vary widely depending on your natal chart.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Throat, voice, speaking, sexual organs and excretory organs, knees, shins, and calves. Money, nourishment, sexuality, fear of death, trauma, dharmic offerings, visibility, gains, older siblings, friendships.

It’s time to speak up, use your voice, and ask for what you need. You are asking for more—more money, more nourishment, more visibility. What steps are you taking to make this a reality? You may feel blocked or restricted with your speaking and voice. Time to get extra support with your self-expression and your power. Ask for help or you will keep walking into the same challenges with no real solutions or results.

Vulnerability is at an all-time high, so don’t take unnecessary risks. This is a powerful time, however, to revisit past trauma and get extra support for navigating fear, death, health issues, spiritual awakening, and sexuality. Lean closer to your vulnerability and fear. Don’t bypass or avoid it. This will only intensify it and keep you stuck. Be courageous with your fear and you will be able to make space for even more nourishment on multiple levels of life.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Head, face, whole body, pelvis, pelvic bowl, thighs, and knees. Sense of self, identity, ego, sensitivity, relationships, sexual trauma, support, dharma, gurus and teachers, inner authority, dharmic offerings.

Rise and shine Taurus! You must face yourself fully and completely in this cycle. Face your shadow and peel back the layers. The obstacles you continue to face require your commitment and perseverance. Bypassing is no longer an option for you.

Growth and expansion are possible, but not without diligence and honesty. What are you moving toward? Why? You say you want expansion and visibility, but you need to get honest with yourself about what motivates you. There is still fear holding you back from your truth and passion. Move closer to the fear that keeps you stuck in self-betrayal.

The vulnerability of your closest relationships is key to unlocking your blockages. Address the trauma in your pelvis and pelvic bowl. Get honest about your sexual trauma and relationship grief. You have the potential for big awakenings if you can truly show up for your body and relationship challenges. Go forward with courage.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Feet, lower stomach, sexual organs, excretory organs, thighs. Enemies, conflict, healing, vulnerability, fear of death, unconscious and subconscious terrain, dharma, life purpose, ancestors, dreams, losses.

Your work in this cycle is primarily with the ancestors and past karmas. Are you doing your grief work? It is truly nonnegotiable at this time as you sift and sort through the layers. As you confront the pain, conflicts, vulnerabilities, and fears, ask yourself how much of this is yours? How much of this is your ancestors? How much of this is the collective? All three layers are important and impactful—and will shape and transform you.

The resistance to facing conflict becomes a challenge in this cycle. You need to get radically honest with yourself and listen to your gut intelligence. Are you really being congruent—with yourself and others? What your body tells you is the truth, but your actions, choices, behaviors, and communication need to match your body wisdom. Practice expressing yourself with complete honesty. What are you afraid of?


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Solar plexus, upper gut, pelvis, pelvic bowl, sexual organs, excretory organs, shins, and calves. Empowerment, children, playfulness, romance, the masculine, relationships, sexuality, support, creativity, vulnerability, fear of death, unconscious and subconscious realms, friendships, gains, older siblings.

Break free from the illusion of self-doubt and disempowerment. How are you betraying yourself still? Where are you disconnected from your own power? Awaken to your potent power and purpose. Deepen your gut intelligence on multiple levels. Through diet and digestion, core work, playfulness, and creativity.

Notice what sparks your child-like sense of wonder and joy. Are you feeding your inner child well? You need this pleasure for your dharmic path and purpose. Your offerings will not be clear without your inner child, so pay close attention to the wisdom it shares with you. Gains and success come from this creative play, so it is worth your time and effort to strengthen this part of yourself.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Heart, chest, lungs, lower gut, pelvis, pelvic bowl, knees. Emotional body, breath, land, home, property, mother, conflicts, enemies, bad habits, healing, relationships, sexuality, support, dharmic offerings, visibility.

This is the year you finally crack your heart wide open. This is the year your grief work is nonnegotiable. This is the year you heal those mother wounds and fully show up for your emotional body wisdom. No numbing or avoiding this time.

Your heart, emotions, home, and mother will be forcing you to look more closely and do your inner work in a new way. Heal the trauma living in your heart so you don’t have to keep carrying around this pain. You are making space for even more love and nourishment. Just say yes!

Honoring inner conflicts are key for you in the coming cycle. Finding balance with inner and outer, self and other, your needs and your clients’ needs. Show up for yourself and your body fully. Listen to your needs and express them. Conflicts can be mitigated or avoided when you are truly congruent. Are you being fully present with your body and its wisdom? Are you letting your relationships know what you really need?


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Hands, arms, shoulders, solar plexus, upper gut, lower gut, thighs. Self-expression, expressive arts, creativity, courage, empowerment, the masculine, playfulness, children, conflicts, healing, enemies, dharma, soul purpose, inner authority.

Your creativity holds the key to your courage. Lean into the trauma and grief you are carrying with your creativity. The fear of your full self-expression must be honored and addressed more fully so you can be freer to uplevel your life and soul purpose. Your willingness to get creative with your life determines your success. Start creating! Use all mediums and try new things. What is inspiring you? What feels fun and nourishing? Move in that direction.

Your creative expression supports unfolding wisdom and empowerment. Find balance and harmony with the masculine and your inner power. Clear the gut and watch digestion carefully. Prevent stagnation and constipation by eating easily digestible foods, doing seasonal cleanses, and following Ayurvedic guidelines.

Digest and release past grief so you have more space for your full expression of power and purpose. Resource from within your gut wisdom and ask your body to share what it needs. This will support congruency and healing on multiple levels of your life.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Throat, voice, heart, emotional body, chest, lungs, solar plexus, upper gut, sexual organs, excretory organs. Voice, self-expression, nourishment, money, heart, home, mother, land, property, the masculine, empowerment, fear of death, vulnerability, unconscious awareness, sexuality.

Attend to your voice and address your fear of full self-expression. This resistance to speaking your truth, sharing your heart songs, and expressing your needs is costing you deeper nourishment and pleasure. Lean closer to the trauma living in your throat and heal the fear of being visible in this world. Focus more on self-expression and sharing your needs authentically. The intimacy you crave is dependent on you being fully honest with yourself and others.

Listen closely to your heart and strengthen the balance between inner and outer, self and other, visibility and invisibility. Boundaries are key—physically, energetically, emotionally, verbally. Practice a new way of being in your body. One that honors your inner wisdom, while also being present with others. Can you hold both? Your heart is your guru in this cycle. Notice what it tells you about your inner wisdom and the truth of who you are.

As you deepen your understanding of your own power, let it guide you toward deeper nourishment, play, romance, and joy. Notice how this supports deeper layers of your path and purpose. Follow the joy—even if it feels incredibly vulnerable.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Head, face, whole body, hands, arms, shoulders, heart, chest, lungs, pelvis, pelvic bowl. Identity, sense of self, sensitivity, courage, self-expression, expressive arts, heart, home, emotional body, land, property, sexuality, relationships, creativity, support.

Peel back the layers of your identity and shed the old, outworn parts of yourself. You are no longer that person anymore. Are you still carrying around that old baggage and self-hatred? It’s time to radically let go and release.

This is a major cycle for waking up! Don’t go back to sleep. Open your eyes, honor your extreme sensitivity, let your differences become more visible. Strip away the illusions holding you back and lighten your load.

Self-expression and creativity are key in this cycle. Use your hands to create and let them teach you more about yourself and your wisdom. Source from your creativity and from the arts. Get more courageous with being visible and share your inner wisdom in new ways. It may feel vulnerable, new, edgy—but go for it. Create with your grief and let it move.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Feet, throat, voice, hands, arms, shoulders, lower gut. Ancestors, dreams, losses, release, voice, self-expression, expressive arts, courage, money, conflict, healing, enemies, digestion.

Honor the deep release taking place—for you and your ancestors. Lighten up, let go, release the past. Spend time in solace and attend to your spiritual body more fully. Take time for retreats and alone time. Meditation is a good use of your time and energy. Just make sure you aren’t running away from yourself, your life, or others. Can you find balance with spiritual and material life?

As you spend more time alone, notice what needs are surfacing. Are you being honest with yourself and expressing your needs to others? Honor conflicts and challenges by showing up more fully. Speak, express, and share your needs. There’s a tendency to be passive-aggressive when you aren’t honest with your needs and boundaries. You can avoid conflicts and challenges just by being honest with yourself, and clear and direct with others.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Head, face, whole body, throat, voice, solar plexus, upper gut, shins, calves. Sense of self, identity, ego, voice, self-expression, money, empowerment, the masculine, children, playfulness, friends, gains, older siblings.

It’s time to find more balance in your life and body. Where are you still fighting yourself and resisting ease and gentleness? What is the grief holding you back and making life so hard? Transform the challenges you keep confronting so you can create a new identity for yourself. The new you allows life to be simple, easy, and nourishing. This includes upgrading your personal mythology around money and wealth.

It’s time to speak up and speak out! This supports your visibility and your ability to be seen in new ways. Staying invisible is no longer an option. It may feel scary to expand right now, but you can no longer afford to resist your own wisdom and power. Step proudly into your power and ask for what you need. Playing small helps no one.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Feet, head, whole body, heart, chest, lungs, knees. Ancestors, release, endings, dreams, solitude, retreat, sense of self, identity, ego, heart, home, land, mother, emotional body, offerings to the world, visibility.

Let the ancestors support you with deep transformation and spiritual awakening. Spend time in solace and on retreat. Attend to your loneliness and old grief. Most of this is ancestral, but needs your attention. The clearing and releasing you are doing right now is preparing you for a new sense of self. Who are you becoming? What are you creating for your one, precious life?

This is a cycle of big endings and release, as well as powerful openings and beginnings. Attend to loose ends and parts of you that need to be let go of—so you have space for the new. Pay close attention to your inner wisdom and take plenty of pauses. Listen carefully to what is arriving. Going too fast will prevent your integration and downloads from taking place. Less is more for now.


Personal mythology and body parts to work with:
Hands, shoulders, arms, thighs, shins, calves, feet. Self-expression, courage, the expressive arts, dharma, inner authority, teachers and gurus, gains, friends, older siblings, retreat, solace, ancestors, endings.

Courageously move toward self-expression and the arts in this cycle. Explore new things, try new mediums, find new ways to express yourself. Use your hands and create! There are some important discoveries to be made for your dharma and soul purpose. The more creative you become, the more doors will open. Let your creativity guide you.

Listen more to your self and your own body. Notice where you give your power away to “authorities.” Clean up past trauma with abusive authority figures and those in positions of power. Move into the right relationship with your inner authority and deepen your self-trust. You are your own guru. You always have been, and you always will be. Your own body holds the key to your truth and passion. Stay close to what feels good, what nourishes you, and what brings you joy.
