December is such a big month on so many levels, I hardly knew where to start! I wrote more for this month than any month since I started Astrology Zone. The entire manuscript tops 50,000 words for all 12 signs, for I wanted you to have a solid view of what is to come in 2021. So many people had a tough year in 2020, and I wanted you to have something new and exciting to look forward to in the coming year.
Whenever Jupiter and Saturn change signs, the entire look and feel of life changes, too. Jupiter changes signs once a year, and Saturn, closer to three years. If you met Saturn’s demands since he entered Capricorn in December 2017, your old challenges will begin to melt away now. In fact, Saturn usually leaves a gift by the door as thanks to you for dealing with his rigors—that might come as soon as January. Both Saturn and Jupiter are moving into Aquarius—Saturn on December 16 and Jupiter on December 19.
Saturn will remain in Aquarius until March 7, 2023. Jupiter will remain in Aquarius until December 28, 2021, with a small exception of 11 weeks, when good-fortune Jupiter will briefly move into Pisces, from May 13 to July 28.
From December 19, 2020 through December 29, 2021, with the exception of those 11 weeks, Jupiter will be in Aquarius. This visit of Jupiter to a double set of signs will give you an opportunity to gain Jupiter’s benefits in two different parts of your life. Sweet!
This month will be very special for another reason—we will have the Grand Mutation due on December 21, something that happens approximately every 200 years. What is that? Well, first I have to explain the Grand Conjunction which happens every 20 years for only one day.
The Grand Conjunction sets the tone for the ethos for the next 20 years affecting the arts, music, theatre, literature, entertainment, designer fashion, food, music, mathematics, science, politics, and the government agenda. In other words, everything!
This year, something amazing is about to happen on December 21. Jupiter and Saturn will not meet in an earth sign as they have been for the last 200 years, but instead, they will meet in air—in this case, Aquarius.
Furthermore, for the rest of your life, Jupiter and Saturn will only meet in air signs in their coming Grand Conjunctions—Aquarius now, Libra in 2040, and Gemini in 2060. Astrologers call this change to a new element the Grand Mutation.
I explain this concept in your December report, but because you report was already long, I will write a separate article on the Grand Mutation in more detail and show you how the pandemic and changes in society it brought played into the changes of the Grand Mutation.
I will post my piece on the homepage of AstrologyZone this month, and also on the premium version of my new app that holds all of my essays. (To subscribe, it is an in-app purchase of the free version for $4.99 a month.) My app is called “Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone + More by Susan Miller” and is on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Both versions of my app have my long, uncut monthly forecast, so at the very least you should download the free version of my app, as it is easier to read than on the Internet, and much easier to navigate. The first day I placed it on the Apple App Store 90,000 readers downloaded it. You should too!
You are my loyal reader, so I can also send my article on the Grand Mutation directly to you via email several days before anyone sees it on my website or app if you join my newsletter. The place join is on my home page, below the blue Compatibility Guide box—you will see a lotus blossom—that’s where you sign up.

Once you sign up, don’t forget to confirm that you do, indeed, want to be on my list. We value your privacy and do not sell, loan, or give your name and email to any other company.
I bet you didn’t even know I had a newsletter. I do, but I don’t send out many, only when I have something important to share with you.
After the newsletter about the Grand Mutation, I’ll send one out about the biggest feature of 2021, namely Saturn in square (hard) aspect to Uranus, which will occur three times throughout 2021. Uranus is about the future and all things modern and new. Saturn upholds the past and preserves it. It will start a valuable discussion for everyone to have in a post-pandemic world—what needs to be cherished and preserved for the future, and what needs to end and be innovated. By the end of 2021, we will be in a stronger, improved condition after having made the decisions posed to us all, of every sign, by Uranus and Saturn.
When you read your December forecast, pay special attention to which part of your chart that Jupiter and Saturn will both enter. That area of life will be a main focus for you as you move forward into 2021 and beyond.
If you are an Aquarius or have Aquarius rising, don’t let anyone tell you that having Saturn on the Sun or ascendant is a difficult aspect. What you achieve with Saturn you get to keep forever. Saturn also teaches that what you work the hardest for, sometimes sacrificing other things in life to grasp your goal, is what you ultimately are proudest to say you accomplished in life.
There will be challenges because you will be entering a new realm where you will have lots to learn, but as an Aquarius, you love going through new experiences. You will get to choose your goals, for with astrology, you always have free will. If you have in your heart a big goal, this coming year, 2021, will be the year to tackle it.
I had Saturn precisely on my Sun to exact degree (just as the Aquarian readers will have in 2021) when I started Astrology Zone exactly 25 years ago this month. Astrology Zone first appeared in New York City at noon on December 14, 1995. The Internet was the wild west when I started, without rules or laws to protect new publishers. In the US, each state had their own set of rules governing the Internet, making it a crazy patchwork quilt that impeded the progress of the Internet—especially e-commerce—but that changed when the federal government took over the Internet and made my life—and all of ours—better!
I have many stories about my experiences as a pioneer on the Internet, but I will save those for another time. My life on the ‘Net over these past 25 years has all the twists and turns of an action movie! One of my greatest challenges was the sudden difficulty with my eyes that came up suddenly and without warning in July. I have no idea how I wrote the past six month’s forecasts, but I think it was due to pure fear I would lose everything I had worked so hard to achieve. It was a writer’s nightmare, and as an astrologer, I have to do many mathematical calculations. I can’t dictate to save my life—dictation is covered by a different part of the brain, I am told by medical personnel, which explains why I can’t do it. I find it an undisciplined way to write. Besides, my love for you, dear reader, got me now so close to a solution to my eyes!
Now I am looking at a third eye operation as the doctors are helping me in small steps because my eyes needed time to heal in between each procedure. For the first time in four years, I am able to see my face in the mirror and the words on my iPhone and my computer screen in all their crystalline beauty. I was marveling at the beautiful shape of the words and the fonts. It made me remember why I love writing so much.
All surgery is a risk, but I believe in living live life courageously. It took a lot of convincing of my four doctors to fix my terrible problem. All four are specialists and famous in their own right who don’t work together but know of one another and were happy to be on my team as each one specializes in different aspects of the eye. At first, no doctor wanted to touch my eye, as I only have one good eye (the other one is beyond hope, ravaged by a serious genetic problem I inherited with both eyes, despite treating both eyes every four weeks for 11 years).
I must also give credit to my Catholic faith and to St. Lucy, patron saint of eyesight, who has stood by me through this frightening ordeal. I want to continue writing Astrology Zone, my apps, books, calendar, and international columns, and in the future, after all these surgeries, that will be very possible.
Thank you for waiting for your December forecast. I had finished the 2021 Astrological Calendar, and my editor, Edward Rubinstein, would need to call me to ask questions about some of the days I had written about, and sometimes asked me to compress the number of words and characters concerning several calendar dates before it went to Michelle Roque, our talented art director in Los Angeles.
My artist is the same person I love and have been working with over the past few years, French artist Izak Zenou. (See Izak’s work on Instagram @IzakZenou_Illustrationist.) Here is our cover, below. We go to press as soon as the last artwork from Izak is done! I have seen half the calendar, approved the pen and inks before the color was layered on, and I am breathless with excitement. This year’s theme is all women, of all ethnicities—white, black, Asian, Latina, and women from India—all of them are beautiful.
Please order your copy and one for your mother, assistant, or best friend, too. Each one sells for $26.99 plus shipping and is printed with rich colored inks on creamy, thick archival paper. Once you have it, you can plan your biggest initiations far in advance by checking what I wrote about the most important days. Click here to order: https://bit.ly/2V4fnKG
Have a Happy New Year, dear reader! You are entering with a clean slate and so many new opportunities!
