2021 Career Scope for ♎️ Libra

Life has been way too serious lately, and as the zodiac’s resident “vibe balancer”, you may be ready to take a vacation from mediating tragedies for other people and create something for yourself for once. For Libras everywhere, 2020 was the year of focusing on further establishing and developing your home & family life so that it feels authentically in line with the real you and the level of emotional or financial security you’ve been craving. Now, with a firmer sense of rootedness in place, you’ll be able to let loose and have a little more fun!

As Jupiter and Saturn both move through your Creativity zone for the majority of the year, it is both exciting and extremely pertinent that you take this time to get clear on what you personally wish existed in your world. Libra’s are natural people-pleasers, so you probably already do more than your fair share for other people. Play with re-balancing the scales of give & take by giving yourself more white space in your schedule just to play, daydream, download ideas, or work on another passion project that lights you up.

Likewise, while the rest of the world is mainly focused on being more communicative and open about discussing the popular matters at hand, your sign, being the one that always goes opposite from the rest to keep things in balance, is actually meant to be diving more deeply into your own creative world of wonder by studying up on the subjects that happen to fascinate you the most. (If you wondered why you’re often confused about making decisions, this is why).

With all 3 Mercury Retrogrades falling in fellow Air signs – including your own starting in late September – you will be doing a lot of self-reflection work as you try to better identify who you are, what your opinions & TOP interests are, and how best to communicate who you are to the world. So, perhaps we could call this the year of “being all about YOU”!


Q1: January – March

At the beginning of the year, your mind may be trying to push forward with a new creative concept while also determining how to capitalize on your ideas in a financial sense. You are in the midst of up-leveling your vision of what is possible for you in your work, health, and daily schedules as you continue to embark on a new educational path or course of study that feels exciting to you but that may be proving to be bigger & more vast or nuanced than you had initially expected.

Our first Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius falls in your Creativity sector from January 30 – February 20, and it may have you second-guessing your ideas or feeling blocked from making progress on your passion projects. This is a time to reflect rather than act and collect information & insights that can contribute to future growth.

Things may get a bit tense in mid-February as well with Saturn squaring off with Uranus in your Creativity zone and Financial sector – forcing you to uplevel your discipline, hard work, and focus to make a powerful change to increase your money magnetizing magic. The more you can start to get more serious about this earlier in the year, the less intense the vibes will be. By the end of February, a beautiful week of extraordinary insights will light the path forward, as well as backward, when it comes to understanding the direction you want to take your creative pursuits.


Q2: April – June

By early April, you’ll be more inspired and driven to pursue this higher path than ever, and you can make a ton of progress in getting things in order and working through each step at this time. There may still be things you feel need to be changed with your home & family situation, but at the same time, you may be without the ability to do much about it for a while. Luckily, in early May, there is a wonderful opportunity for healing fears around asking for support from relationships, partnerships, or other people in general in favor of you being able to have more time and energy to explore the magical interests that are calling to you.

You’ll also be getting a sneak peek at some of 2021’s energy in mid-May as Jupiter zooms ahead from Aquarius into Pisces for about 2.5 months before it turns retrograde again. This may find you completing an iteration of a big creative project and getting ready to get more organized in your daily affairs – including the rituals and routines that support you in maintaining amazing energetic hygiene.

With our 2nd Mercury Retrograde in Gemini from May 29 – June 22, you may be questioning some of your higher beliefs or feeling confused about which subjects you should be pursuing. You may even be doubting your ability to be an expert on a subject that you had previously thought you had mastered. Don’t lose heart as confusion is actually a natural part of the cosmic process! It’s where your ego is able to break free from a fixed pattern and consider a new angle.


Q3: July – September

At the end of July, you’ll be heading back into your creative bubble to reflect back on old creative projects and look at them from a new, elevated perspective. Starting in mid-August and mid-September, you’ll have a beautiful opportunity to grow and flourish, give and receive much more abundance as both your ruling planet Venus and motivational Mars move through your sign. Opportunities will flow towards you more easily and you will be willing and ready to meet each opportunity with your best work. Others will also be more drawn to your magic and the unique influence and inspiration you can provide them with, and business opportunities, relationship advancements, and finances are likely to be flowing in like honey!


Q4: October – December

At the start of the final quarter, Mercury Retrograde will have already been moving backward in your sign for nearly a week. You may be questioning yourself and reconsidering aspects of your identity. It may be one of the most confusing periods you’ve been through in a while as you seek to find a way to define yourself rather than allow others to define you. Try not to make any big sweeping decisions and give yourself the time, space, warmth & compassion to move at your own pace.

Relationships and partnerships receive a beautiful healing balm of energy over the last week of November as your connections with others become boosted thanks to a creative idea you’ve been working hard to put into practice.

And at last, the final stretch of December does bring some challenges for us all. For you specifically, it will be related to re-assessing what you want and value most regarding your home life, family, marriage, or place of dwelling. Once again, this is not a good time for making big decisions or starting or ending things, as any changes you make are not likely to stick. This is because events that unfold related to these subjects are only meant to teach you more about what you want… often from giving you the opposite experience so you can once again be charged with the duty of re-balancing the scales.



  • Your biggest challenge & area of growth: Putting your creative ideas into practice, being more original with your work, having more fun, enjoying time off just to relax and play AND working to put structures in place to be able to do this more often, flirting & dating, and gaining recognition and fame for your creative ideas 
  • More of this: Carving out long stretches of time to learn new things about the subjects that fascinate you the most, getting out of your normal daily routines and seeing more of the world (and especially the countryside), teaching and sharing your mastery with others, exploring your curiosities even if they don’t seem practical at first, diving deeper into your beliefs to understand who they came from OR who you’re trying to please by continuing to believe that
  • Less of this: Mindlessly scrolling social media, trolling the news sites, buying into magazine headlines, consuming too much information that doesn’t serve you in pursuing the path that currently most calls out to you, light fluffy social media posts that don’t contain depth, asking others for their opinion & not trusting your own, and taking others’ opinions at face value without doing your own research
