Your FREE 2020 Horoscope
Your free horoscope reveals what awaits you in the year 2020!
Although we typically prefer to have a "rainbows and unicorns" perspective around the New Year, in 2020, before the rainbow, you will likely experience a significant storm in your life.
This is symbolized by the goliath conjunction between heavy hitters Saturn and Pluto -- both in stark Capricorn -- on January 12. Punctuated by a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer just before, on January 10, you might very well feel as if whatever structures you have counted on to maintain your personal security are gone. You might have thought things were solid, but life circumstances start to whittle away at things and there is the very real chance that certain structures in your world will fall apart.
While this all sounds so bleak, take heart. There IS another side to the 2020 Saturn-Pluto conjunction and it has everything to do with testing your resilience. Stress can either be a conductor toward your light or it can collapse your world, depending on your perspective. Even if your world seems to come undone early in the year, recognize that, if you choose to keep digging, you will unearth a level of strength inside of you that you couldn't have possibly known without these tests. This conjunction is not sentencing you to end your story. No, it is challenging you to rise to the occasion of your life and, ultimately, reach your full potential.
We are all connected
A fascinating shift occurs for all once Saturn dips into Aquarius from March 21 - July 1, then goes into this sign full time starting December 17 (and lasting until March 2023). That shift will pivot you outside of yourself and remind you that you are one tiny drop in a massive ocean of humanity. Your responsibility toward the collective and to your fellow man will be stimulated. This will be the highest vibration of Saturn in Aquarius and, by the end of the year when Jupiter enters Aquarius (December 19) and creates a perfect conjunction to Saturn (December 21), you will be ready to build a visionary foundation in a certain area of your life that can ultimately have a ripple effect on others.
The past resurfaces
Aside from these incredibly dynamic cosmic shifts, 2020 will also be a year that both Venus AND Mars go retrograde. Between May 13 and June 25, Venus will retrograde in the intellectual sign of Gemini. The first eclipse in the Gemini-Sagittarius series punctuates the middle of this retrograde cycle: on June 5, Venus Retrograde will oppose the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. All of this will square nebulous Neptune. This suggests a significant time for all, involving telling someone close to you the truth about a money or romantic situation from your past. This also means it's time to tell yourself the truth about this matter. It's overdue.
Mars Retrograde, from September 9 - November 13, will be particularly tricky since Mars will be backtracking in his home sign of Aries. You might feel like you've run out of steam during this time and must accept that, sometimes, you just can't fight your life's battles the way you're used to. Use this Mars Retrograde downtime to regroup, go within, and learn more about the art of making love, making war, and, most importantly, making you as strong as can be from the inside out.
Finding what's important
The final eclipses on the Cancer-Capricorn axis occur on June 21 and July 5, wrapping up a long-term lesson of home and family versus career and worldly ambitions. You have a real chance at these eclipses to see the fruits of your labor, but what might surprise you is that the goals you once had are no longer as important as they once were. Priorities shift and that's OK. It's called life.
On November 30 and December 14, eclipses are fully taking over the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. Truth, meaning, and whether or not you can handle it are lessons to tackle now.
