Your essential guide to the week ahead from Citizen Femme’s resident astrologer, Zana Wilberforce.
Everyone seems to be talking about the Age of Aquarius but what does it really mean in the realm of travel? Community, social activism, and innovation are tropes that carry the most relevance just now. Whether you’re thinking of embarking on your first workation or sticking to wholesome walks and countryside staycations, this is how you could be travelling in 2021 according to your sign.
December 22 – January 19
Themes surrounding entrepreneurship and innovation are likely to take hold this year as you begin to reap the rewards of your hard work. Moments of mellowing out throughout the year could be vital in helping your ideas truly flourish. Make the most of remote working with a workation in a far-flung destination to fragment your time between work and play.
January 20 – February 18
With the Age of Aquarius in full effect, your sign’s most potent qualities are positioned in the limelight. Your community-minded approach to art, social justice, and partnerships moves to the forefront. In 2021, our attraction to conscious travel is likely to be taken up a notch – you might even find yourself going flight free or travelling in longer spurts.
February 19 – March 20
There’s a strong focus on friendships and partnerships this year, Pisces. Look out for early signs of this when Venus meets hardworking Capricorn and your eleventh house of social circles this Friday 8 January. Group travel is on your mind. We can picture you lounging by the pool in a remote villa in Tuscany, hopping between the local wineries and sun-baked villages.
March 21 – April 19
Themes surrounding security start to take shape this year for you, Aries. Look out for a new moon in your sign on 11 April for setting intentions. You could be seeking nature and local travel this year as you embark on a spiritual journey. Frequent jaunts to the countryside have a way of setting your mind at ease like nowhere else.
April 20 – May 20
You’re in the mood for experimentation this year, Taurus, which will help you embrace the unconventional. Uranus, the planet of innovation, will be lounging in your sign until 2026 so expect a dose of rebellion here and there. When the time permits, hit up a hedonistic hideaway before your annual hibernation mode begins late summer.
May 21 – June 20
Expansion is your word of the year, Gemini. Look out for change in various areas of your life. Your birthday season could be an ideal time to travel or go on an adventure to coincide with a lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. The spontaneity of a road trip could provide some much-needed visual inspiration and the chance to bump heads with interesting characters along the way.
June 21 – July 22
A fresh-start energy encourages you to take a breather and begin the year in a mellow mood after a series of intense eclipses. By summertime, you could be seeking out a meditative retreat as a new moon solar eclipse in Gemini activates your sector of healing and spirituality. A desire to support social causes and give back could make you more inclined to travel locally and get closer to your community in 2021.
July 23 – August 22
The year kickstarts with a feel-good energy despite the restrictions. Look out for a series of key dates for glowing up or looking inward, including a full moon in your sign on Thursday 28 January. During Mars’ transit in Cancer from 23 April to 11 June, you may enter hibernation mode, calling for lonesome coastal walks. Mars shifts into your sign come summer, making it an ideal time to organise or replicate a private island takeover.
August 23 – September 22
2021 is the year you open your mind and take a leap of faith, Virgo. If it’s a meditation course you’ve been thinking of starting or a new skill you’ve been meaning to hone, the Leo full moon on Thursday 28 January could kickstart a whole new you. Train travel could quite well be a dominant travel theme for you this year as you embrace the unconventional.
September 23 – October 22
2021 is your year to explore the true meaning of home and themes surrounding attachment to a physical space. You could be saying yes to soul-stirring adventures far removed from your childhood abode. Your love for companionship encourages you to travel in spaces where you can make strong connections with fellow kindred spirits.
October 23 – November 21
This year begins with a release when innovative Uranus ends its five-month retrograde in your partnership sector. Say goodbye to procrastination and any dilly-dallying that once left you feeling exasperated. Mars’ transit in Cancer from 23 April to 11 June could inspire you to seek out old haunts in 2021 for a sense of familiarity.
November 22 – December 21
2021 begins with an experimental energy as your ruler Jupiter stays put in optimistic Aquarius since December. You could be crossing paths with adventurous spirits come springtime as Mars, the planet of action, enters Gemini. You may start exploring alternative means of travel this year, especially as Pluto’s five-month retrograde in Capricorn on 27 April asks you to think about what you value most.
