“The sun represents our vitality in astrology,” says Marquardt. “With less exposure this time of year, we might also feel dull and sluggish.” Consider the more literal sun theme, like the celestial body that illuminates our surroundings, and it is possible that with the decline in daylight, we will also find it more difficult to see clearly or with optimism, he adds. .

And this year, in particular, certain astrological transits make that dark and moody atmospheric effect even more powerful. When the end of summer time arrives, the sun, Mercury and Mars all to be in the intense fixed sign of Scorpio, making significant aspects, says Marquardt.
Since Scorpio naturally deals with themes of the underworld and darkness, it’s worth understanding how these transits, coupled with the shorter daylight forecast, might interact with your particular zodiac sign. Below, Marquardt reviews the themes most likely to surface during this time for each sign, and how best to overcome those waves.
Read on to find out the effect of the end of daylight saving time in 2021 on each zodiac sign:
Your overall financial situation may be in question, Aries. In particular, your attention may be turned to any passive income or debt, such as stocks and taxes, as Mercury in Scorpio resides in your eighth house of resources. Fortunately, the planet is also forming a sextile of support for Venus in Capricorn, giving you the focused push you need to rethink your savings plan or restructure your budget.
It’s high time to get to know you, Taurus. This is because you might encounter friction in your relationships with others, as the sun in your seventh house of partnerships opposes Uranus, which has transited into your first house of identity. “Too much emphasis on romantic or business partners during this time will only slow down your growth, which has the ability to take a big leap right now,” Marquardt said. It’s okay to put the needs and wants of others on hold right now in favor of your own.
Things can be a bit cloudy for you, Gemini. In addition to the lack of clarity generated by the coming winter darkness, you may experience upheavals in your routine, with Mars residing in your sixth house of health and habits coming into sharp opposition to master builder Saturn. “You don’t know why you need to adjust your routine, other than the clock changing,” says Marquardt. “It makes you feel a little bit existential, which may be unfamiliar territory for you.”
You may feel a little creatively stuck at the end of daylight saving time, Cancer. As with Gemini, the current positioning of Mars and Saturn, relative to your sign, is a bit at odds: Mars is in your fifth house, moving you to the depths of your creative endeavors, while Saturn is in your eighth house. , perhaps highlighting financial or other obligations that are blocking your path. Be patient and focus on your creative goals, despite the obstacles, says Marquardt.
Keep an eye out for the line that marks your line between work and private life, Leo. Marquardt notes the potential for a “tipping effect between your private and public life”, as the sun residing in your fourth house opposes Saturn in your career 10th house. An event or discovery at home could lead to a breakthrough in your reputation, or perhaps a change in your workplace will hook you more closely into your family life, says Marquardt.
Communication is a major theme for you Virgo as we move into the darker winter days. Your dominant plant of Mercury is in your third house of communication and forms a supporting sextile with Venus in your fifth house of creativity. Because you feel like you have an important message to share with someone you care about, you might struggle to find the right words, says Marquardt. But if you take your methodical time (as you usually do), you will be expressing your thoughts in a way that feels appropriate to you.
“The change of weather makes you think of changes in your resources, Libra,” says Marquardt. Do you remember all those planets in Scorpio? Well, they’re all in your second house of money, and with the influence of Scorpio, they’re pushing you to dive deep into the intricacies of your current financial situation. You might discover new and creative ways to get out of debt, invest in a lucrative business, or even jump on the cryptocurrency bandwagon; in any case, financial innovation could change your perspective.
You’re more comfortable in the dark than most signs, Scorpio, so you might feel more comfortable opening up or becoming more vulnerable with a loved one as a result. Thanks to Uranus in your seventh house of partnerships, you feel inspired to share your emotions – and more confident that it will put you at peace with yourself, Marquardt says.
Take the shorter days and longer nights of winter as a cue to slow down and do some soul searching, Sagittarius. The moon in your sign transforms into a square with mystical Neptune, activating your dream state, both in waking life and as you sleep, says Marquardt: “Let yourself visualize the possibilities that are open to you rather than to jump at the first opportunity. Your hidden strength right now is in your ability to sit down and meditate. “
Your friends are on your mind, Capricorn. Mercury in your 11th house of community and association brings a positive aspect to Venus in your first house of identity, and as a result, an acquaintance might make a choice or a change that benefits you. Because of this event’s strong connection to your sense of yourself, however, it is important not to tie yourself up in a co-dependent manner. “Uranus in your fifth house of creativity wants you to bet on your own strengths and talents rather than becoming dependent,” says Marquardt.
You might face some friction at work, Aquarius. Not only do you feel like you have fewer hours in the day to carry out your responsibilities, but also, a tough square between rigid Saturn in your sign and Mars in your 10th career house is making you struggle to meet the demands. “Your energy may be depleted if you bend over backwards to meet new expectations,” says Marquardt. “Be careful not to bite more than you can chew.”
A reality check may be in store for you, Pisces. While your planetary ruler, the dreamer Neptune, has been comfortably transiting your home for quite some time, a difficult square with the moon in your 10th career house opens your eyes to a less idealized truth than you are used to. In order to avoid a shock, be careful not to get carried away by an opportunity that seems too good to be true, says Marquardt.
