2020 beings with planetary powerhouse Saturn and Pluto joining forces in your career sector on January 13. You might be ready to let go of a long-term responsibility or commitment as you move toward a professional path that deeply fulfils you. Mars, your sovereign star spends the second half of 2020 in your sign. From June 28 through until January 7 2021, you’ll be on the go-slow as the cosmos invites you to rediscover yourself and re-ignite forgotten passions.
2020 is the first full calendar year that Uranus spends in Taurus, and in your 2nd sector of money. 2018 and 2019 initiated you to the changes that are possible during this long-term cycle. Above all else, Uranus seeks freedom and autonomy. You may suddenly become interested in new or innovative ways to obtain financial independence, liberate yourself from debt or create opportunities to grow your wealth.
When it comes to your resources, you can err on the conservative side. Under Uranus’ radical influence, you’re encouraged to consider new ideas about money.
Bucking convention and busting beyond a comfort zone is your cosmic key to securing the financial stability you desire. Remaining curious and open is especially important on May 6 while Mercury and Uranus connect.
Adopting new technology or an out- of- the- blue idea may unlock something that has been stuck or stagnant in respect to increasing your cash.
If you’re in the early stages of self-employment, a newcomer in your industry or, looking to take a side-line hussle to the next level, a breakthrough is possible on March 9 as lucky star Venus fuses with Uranus. You might land a cashed- up client in your business or secure a raise or promotion you weren’t expecting at work.
A lucrative link between Venus and generous Jupiter on March 28 may highlight an array of new opportunities to grow abundance. A person of influence may offer timeless advice about money or you might discover that you’re in a better financial position than you thought.
Progressing forward toward a domestic dream is possible as the North Node in Cancer continues to occupy your 4th sector until May 5. Under this karmic influence, you’ll feel increasingly connected to your family members, those you call family or with whom you share your living space with.
June 21 sees a New Moon eclipse in Cancer, book-ending the last 18-month chapter of growth and potential in your home and family life.
While progress and developments may be trending along as you hoped, you’ll have the extended cycle of Mercury to help you work out the details as you move forward. Whether you’re looking to plan family events, organise tradespeople in your home or plan a relocation, you’ll have Mercury onside from May 29 – June 19. From then, you might bump into some snafus, crossed-wires or miscommunications, thanks to a retrograde, or reverse cycle.
Confusion about money, contracts or agreements involving your home might pop up on July 1. Remaining cautious, yet open to new ideas and carefully exploring your options can help you turn shock or surprise to your advantage on July 22.
The need to make an adjustment between your desires and someone else’s schedule is possible on July 8, as Mercury clashes with Mars, your patron planet. Treating the situation with TLC will ensure a better outcome for you when Mercury and Mars meet again on July 28.
As Mercury begins to pick up speed from July 11 and continues through Cancer until August 5, you’ll have all the facts at hand to charge ahead with your domestic plans. Venus will pick up where Mercury left off from August 8 – September 6, providing sweet relief after a period of stalled progress. You might opt to use the supportive and nurturing influence of Venus in Cancer gathering those you love, enjoying increased togetherness at home.
Some of your happiest relationship moments are possible when Venus tours Libra from October 28 – November 22.
Under her sweet influence, you may find it easier to express your feelings which can heighten togetherness. If you’re looking for love, you’ll have Venus’ support in attracting attention and making the right connections.
While in Libra, Venus will face off with your patron planet Mars on November 9. This may highlight your shifting desires when it comes to relationships. Tension between what someone special wants versus what might, or might not want, are well worth exploring now. Considering your options and making the necessary adjustments can help you achieve your goals while making your special someone feel included.
Mercury visits your 7th sector twice, helping you get clear about how to increase harmony and balance in your most important relationships. Getting the ball rolling when it comes to discussing what you want in love is highlighted from September 11 – 27.
Hitting a proverbial snag is possible from October 8 – November 3 as Mercury takes a very brief reverse cycle through Libra and your 7th house. “If in doubt, talk it out,” will be your key to success then. If you have an important topic to broach November 3 is particularly hopeful as Mercury aligns with lucky Fixed Star Spica. Heightened communication and new levels of togetherness can be established until November 11.
Career and Life Direction
The crown of your solar horoscope, known as the 10th house of career, reputation, fame, honours and recognition is one of the most active and dynamic this year. Profound change that promotes transformation is possible as the longer trend of Saturn in Capricorn winds up on March 22.
Since December 2017, you may have reached a new pinnacle in your career, clarified your professional direction or gained a new level of honesty about what you really want out of life. Saturn’s journey highlighted the longer trend of Pluto in Capricorn, that began in 2008.
January 22 sees their exceptionally rare and potent meeting. Together, these two planetary heavyweights may bring a crescendo of events that have been building for over a decade.
You may finally feel ready to sever ties with work that has weighed you down or no longer stokes your inner fire. As Saturn and Pluto join forces, you may undergo a process of professional pruning, where scaling back now, can set you up for new growth down the track.
Stepping away from a longer-term role is possible, especially if materialistic motivations no longer drive you. Getting crystal clear about your current position and whether that aligns with your professional dreams can inspire honest choices.
You might opt for a redundancy, enter retirement or choose a pathway that allows for more freedom and increased opportunities to grow and develop professionally.
New buds of potential may begin to blossom under generous Jupiter’s benevolent once in every 12- year influence in your career zone until December 20. Combined, Jupiter and Pluto are linked to wealth, money, abundance and living in accordance with your truth. Letting of demands or a sense of professional duty may invite new levels of career freedom, combined with stability. Jupiter and Pluto will join forces in April, June and November.
Dates for your diary where Jupiter’s favourable influence can benefit you are March 28, May 18, September 10 and October 19.
Happiness and Children
Your sector of happiness, children and creativity, known as the 5th house, will be activated by the annual cycles of the Sun and Mercury. When the radiant Sun enters Leo from July 22 – August 23, you’ll be encouraged to enjoy some of the simplest pleasures that life has to offer.
Discovering a personal passion is possible when the Sun and Mars join forces on August 15. You’ll be ready to push forward with a hobby or interest that both energises and sparks you joy. Some of your most romantic moments can be had when Venus enters Leo on September 6. This heart-opening cosmic influence can assist you in sharing joy with those you love or bring happy developments involving children.
A dynamic link between Venus and unpredictable Uranus on September 15 can help you bust out of stagnant love habits. A spur of the moment choice to enjoy 5-star experience will be well-worth it, even if that means a budget blow-out. If you’re single, a random encounter might be exciting, but it may be helpful to not rush in too soon.
Adventure and Discovery
Your 9th house covers a variety of areas such as teaching, studying, writing, publishing, philosophy, faith as well as global connections. As these eclipses light up this area of your life, opportunities to broaden your horizons and awaken your spirit of adventure may beckon.
Instead of your regular type of holiday destination, you might be pulled toward spiritual pilgrimages or places that reflect your changing perspectives on life. Locations that enhance your academic or educational endeavours are also highlighted.
The eclipse dates for your diary are June 6, December 1 and 15. Restlessness may peak as Mars activates your 9th house for the first time in 2 years. From January 3 – February 17, you might find the courage to book that travel adventure you’ve always wanted. A link from Neptune on January 27 may pull you towards experiences that is mystical, magical or unusual.
Friends, Networks and Groups
Your friendships, social circles, community groups and professional networks are undergoing a cosmic reality check thanks to Saturn in Aquarius. You’ll get a preview of some of the shifts you’ll experience over the next three years from March 22 – July 2.
You may be ready to step up into a position of leadership or gradually come to the realisation that you have a greater capacity to contribute than you think. Saturn supports long-lasting connections. Friendships that have stood the test of time may continue to deepen and nourish you.
Maturity can help you appreciate the wide and varied perspectives of those you hold dear. Solid alliances can be strengthened through mutual respect of each other’s ideals and individuality. Under this once in every 30- year influence, you may come to realise that you’ve outgrown connections that no longer feel authentic or don’t align with your evolving self.
You might be keen to explore new friendships with interesting and unique people that reflect some of your own changing ideals and perspectives. March 31 is highlighted as Mars and Saturn fuse. You might accept a new responsibility or take the lead in a community or networking situation. Events that take place then may underline what the Saturn in Aquarius cycle means for you.
Personal Growth and Self Development
Your personal priorities will be at the top of your list as Mars, your sovereign star moves through your sign for the first time in 2 years.
Mars will be in Aries for an usually long time, from June 28 – January 7 2021. For over 6 months, you’ll be blessed with extra confidence, courage, passion and determination. If you’ve been wanting to develop a personal passion or work on your health and fitness, Mars on side can help you make it happen.
Mars in Aries can help you assert yourself and rise up to whatever challenges lay before you. These challenges may present once Mars moves backwards from September 11 – November 13.
This rare retrograde cycle will invite you to pause, reflect and review the plans you’ve made since late June. Delays in progress will frustrate you, but are a necessary part of your self-development. Let any tension that rises within you be your clue that you may need to consider another direction. Once Mars picks up the pace from mid- November through until the New Year, you’ll notice that your actions may encounter minimal resistance. You’ll be recharged and fired up to tackle any challenge head on.
Time Out and Spirituality
Regular periods of rest and retreat may be necessary, especially while your 12th sector becomes active from January 14 – April 11.
You might long for more time alone or need to take a break from your regular routines and responsibilities.
Short breaks or weekend getaways can help keep you fresh and inspired, particularly as other areas of life demand so much of your energy and attention. Schedule some recreation or holidays on the following dates. If that’s not possible aim to increase meditation or other reflective practices then. January 27, February 18 – March 4, March 9, March 16 – April 11, April 4.
