Check out the best day of 2021 for your zodiac sign, according to an astrologer.

Aries: April 15, 2021

On April 15, the sun will be exalted in your star sign and will sextile both Jupiter in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini, as they trine each other. This creates an aspect pattern known as the "Small Talent Triangle."

"This gives you a unique opportunity to discover a new skill, hobby, or partnership that could make a big impact on your career," says Marmanides. "The sun will be at the midheaven, putting a focus on your mission in life and getting support from friends and partners to achieve your dreams."

Taurus: May 8, 2021

Taurus is a sign that loves the finer things in life: a particularly full-bodied cabernet, 1,000-thread cotton sheets, massage candles in every scent, and so on. So, when it comes to material pleasures, this day bodes well with ruling planet Venus in conversation with lucky Jupiter, the giver of gifts.

"Venus is strongly positioned at the critical degree of Taurus, highlighting earthly, sensual, and material pleasures," Marmanides says. "It could be day where you are faced with too many lush and rich options—but after a hard year like 2020, too much of a good thing could be a very good thing."

Gemini: May 28, 2021

Whatever the state of the world, this is the perfect day for Gemini to connect (even if just digitally) with others and enjoy life.

"Today is a great day for socializing—and there is nothing more that Gemini loves than getting together with friends, swapping funny stories and innocent gossip," says Marmandes. "With your chart ruler Mercury so strongly positioned and conjunct lovely Venus, this is a great day for a night out with friends, a shopping spree, a makeover, or enjoying a movie, art, or any kind of intellectual discourse."

Cancer: June 23, 2021

Cancer loves being cozy and homebound, but after so much time doing exactly that in quarantine, these crabs might be looking to stretch their legs and their mind. They'll tap into their creative, water sign energy with the sun in their home sign in a direct trine from Jupiter in Pisces.

"This is a day when abundance will be flowing," says Marmanides. "If you’ve been longing for an adventure, want to sign up for a spiritual retreat, or even begin studying something you’re passionate about, this is a real opportunity to expand your horizons—literally or figuratively."

Leo: July 13, 2021

Of all of the signs, Leo has had the roughest go in quarantine, unable to be surrounded by the people who light them up. Luckily, this day provides a real opportunity to shine.

"Both Venus and Mars will connect on this day while answering to your glorious sun, as both of these planets are in the sign of Leo," says Marmanides. "Your drive to create something magical, entertaining and from the heart will take center stage, whether it’s a love affair or a passion project. Take this day to celebrate by spicing things up in the bedroom—a whole new cycle in love is about to begin."

Virgo: August 18, 2021

This is a highly auspicious day, when your ruling planet Mercury is busy connecting with several planets in the sky, as part of a grand Earth trine.

"While Mercury is conjunct Mars, highlighting precision and a tactical plan, the moon in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus are pointing to areas for deeper commitments and sturdier foundations—it’s your time to feel more secure about your place in the world and get tangible support if you need it," says Marmanides.

Libra: September 6, 2021

Libra is the sign most likely to be in love with love, and this day promises to be very lucky in the romance department.

"Your ruling planet Venus will be luxuriating in her home sign of Libra and trining Jupiter in Aquarius in your fifth house of love, romance, and creativity," says Marmanides. "Added bonus: The moon is in the 13th lunar mansion, so use this energy to flirt, enjoy a great date, or partake in passionate lovemaking."

Scorpio: November 18, 2021

Scorpio loves sex, and this will be a magnificent day to enjoy your natural eroticism.

"Your ruling planet is at home in the sign of Scorpio, and on this day, he will oppose Uranus, the planet of electricity and the unexpected in your seventh house of partnerships," says Marmanides. "With Mars in deeply passionate Scorpio meeting with this kinetic energy, if you have a partner, plan a night in. If you’re single, get out there. You will be a sexual magnet with sparks flying off the charts."

Sagittarius: May 14, 2021

This is a happy day for everyone, as Jupiter, the planetary giver of luck and abundance, moves into fertile Pisces, one of his home signs. Sagittarius, naturally lucky by way Jupiter, will especially reap the benefits.

"Your ruling planet will receive a beneficial trine from the moon in Cancer, and your already supercharged confidence and optimism will feel as limitless and boundless as your vivacious personality," says Marmanides. "Take this day to relax, do something fun, and enjoy all life has to offer."

Capricorn: August 23, 2021

Cap is all about moving up the career ladder; it's why they've been working harder than anyone this pandemic. So this is a day when you should charge in and claim what you deserve.

"A dignified Venus in your 10th house of career shines down in a lovely trine to Saturn in your second house of money and resources, making this a very potent day for Capricorns looking for a raise, promotion, or other upgrade in their life status," says Marmanides. "And with Venus in the sign of Saturn’s exaltation, anything you ask for will likely result in a big, resounding 'yes'"

Aquarius: November 29, 2021

Aquarius is known for brilliant ideas, and this day is a particularly potent one for your words to be imbued with magical power. Express them loudly and proudly.

"Mercury is sharing a moment with the sun while trining Saturn, your ruling planet in your third house of communication," says Marmanides. "Take time to write or say out loud your manifestation desire and send that out into the universe."

Pisces: June 3, 2021

Love, luck and romance are in the air on this day for Pisces. It's guaranteed to feel extra-lush and lovely for everyone, but particularly for Pisces, who'll be extra-blessed in all love-related endeavors.

"It’s a perfect day to go on a date, meet someone new, or launch a passion project out into the world," says Marmanides. "Jupiter, your ruling planet, is receiving a lovely trine from Venus in Cancer—meaning that they’re both in the sign of each other’s exaltation. Trust me, this is a very good thing."
