Just as in life, you can have some things going well, and others going not so well, some of the predictions below may seem to contradict each other. Sometimes the planetary aspects seem to really hit home in your chart, and other times not so much. This is an indication of what to expect in a general sense and is not calibrated to your individual natal chart and covers only the basics of what to expect in 2020.

The year starts off with a lot of planets in your 12th house of the hidden and secret parts of your chart and includes the powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto aspect in this part of your chart. There has probably been a build-up to changes in this area of your life for a little while now.

It is likely that change is inevitable in some regards to at least one of these subjects – addictions, psychological issues, working behind the scenes, illness, retreats, and secrets. While this might seem quite ominous and frightening, in the long term, this is likely to be quite beneficial and to assist you in growing in some fashion.

Early January to mid-February is a great time to chase your hopes and dreams as you have abundant energy to do so now. You are very future-orientated and are willing to put in the hard work now so you can benefit later on.

You are likely to have more to do with your friends, groups or organizations at this time too. You may be more prone to disagreements with others at this time, but if you can find those that you can work well with, it is likely to be a very beneficial time for you.

From mid-January to early February, you may find that your finances have a bit of an up and down quality. Your ability to attract money and possessions at this time is high, but your tendency to over-spend is also increased.

You will be attracted to items that appeal to your sense of beauty and harmony at this time, as well as being attracted to articles that give you a feeling of luxury or lavishness. Financial negotiations are likely to favorable at this time as you have an ability to handle these situations well now.

From early February to early March, you may find that your day to day encounters with people are more harmonious and agreeable. You enjoy catching up with friends, siblings and those that you run into regularly. There may be an uptick in the number of communications with others during this time as well.

From the 16th of February until the 9th of March, Mercury will be retrograde, which can cause all sorts of mix-ups and delays. For you, Mercury will be about rethinking, re-evaluating and re-doing matters related to your income and finances. 

The retrograde period is a good time to go over financial accounts and make sure that these matters are as they should be. Make sure to double-check that you are given the correct change in shops and that charges are correct. Signing contracts on larger purchases may run into delays at this time. 

The very last period of the retrograde period, from March 4, will see Mercury slip back into the astrological house that is all about you. You may be thinking of undergoing some sort of make-over of your style or look, and this is a great time to think about what you might like to do. 

You would do best to wait until the retrograde phase is over though before actually going ahead. To truly keep your bases covered, you would be best to not start something new between the beginning of February and the end of March (allowing for the shadow period).

Mid-February to the end of March can be a frustrating time where it may seem that you cannot put a foot right. It is likely that you may slip into knee-jerk reactions when upset and that this only gets in the way of what you want to do and say during this time.

Others may seem to be working against you and your interests at this time, or it may seem that someone or something is blocking your progress. This is, however, a good time to do behind the scenes work such as research or to volunteer your time, if you feel that way inclined.

From early March to early April, you may find yourself becoming more of a homebody. You are more likely to want to spend time at home with your special people, rather than go out or visit with others at this time.

Your relationship with your family and your parents, in particular, is likely to be quite good during this time. You may find yourself wanting to redecorate your home or make it more appealing in some way.

The beginning of April to mid-May is likely to be a high energy time for you where you have the ambition and drive to achieve your aims. You are usually better off working independently now if you can, as you may not play well with others at this time.

From early April to early August is a great time to get away for holidays if you can. This is a time when you have little time for work and heavy subjects in any case, and you would rather focus on fun times with those that you care about.

If you have children, this is likely to be a wonderful time spent with them. For those in relationships, this is likely to be a carefree and relaxed time. You feel able to be yourself and be appreciated for who you are.

For those that are artistically inclined, this can be a very productive period. For those that are not so talented, an appreciation for the creative work of others is likely now.

Venus will be retrograde this year, from May 13th to June 25th. However, the effects of Venus retrograde will be felt from April 9th until July 29th when taking into account the retrograde shadow period. Events from 8 years ago (11th April 2012 to 31st July 2012) may also be linked to events happening now.

Venus will be retrograde in your 5th house of children, creativity, romance, and what you do for fun. As Venus retrogrades are a time for reviewing our relationships and values, you may find yourself mulling over issues to do with these topics. Any imbalances that have occurred in the areas are likely to come under scrutiny.

On and around June 3rd, issues from the past are likely to arise and there may be a strong tendency to project these onto current partners or situations, even when there is no correlation between the two. Walls or defenses that you have built up may need to be torn down, or you may find the need to enforce boundaries at this time.

You may find that looking at matters from a new angle or taking a new approach works better for you now. This works best if you can incorporate the new ways of looking at this situation with how you have already been dealing with these sorts of matters. Venus values balance and harmony, so swinging from handling situations one way to the other extreme may do more harm than good.

From Mid-May to the last week of June your feelings of self-worth may be tied into your financial circumstances and what you own at this time. You may feel quite driven to accumulate more possessions or increase your income in some way. You are more likely to put these possessions to good use at this time though. Disputes over finances and possessions are more likely now.

From 17 Jun 2020 to 12 Jul 2020 we have Mercury retrograde and potentially causing mix-ups and delays again. Some may find the effects of the retrograde extend to the shadow period of 1 Jun to 26 Jul 2020.

This Mercury retrograde will be occurring in your 6th house of health and fitness, along with working with others and your pets. You may find that there are mix-ups with test results, or callbacks to get retested for something medically related. You may also find that a pet can return at this time, or may need some attention for a prior problem. Communications with those that you work with may be more prone to mix-ups and communication problems during this time.

From late June to early September you are likely to expend a lot more energy dealing with communications and transport. You may also come across as a little more aggressive than you usually do. You may find that those that you encounter on a day to day basis get on your nerves more now. Your relationship with siblings might suffer somewhat unless you can funnel it into physical activities you can share together.

From early August to early September, you may run into some relationship difficulties. If there are problems in your relationship, this is a good time to discuss them and come to some sort of agreement. There is a strong tendency for you to want to focus on only the fun side of things now, but ignoring matters will not make them go away.

You may want to be off enjoying yourself when the need to knuckle down and work is needed. In the workplace, however, you should be able to schmooze well with those you work with. Your health is likely to be good at this time, but you may need to watch your weight, as you will likely have a weakness for sweet and fattening foods at this time.

From early September to early October, your relationships are likely to be excellent. This includes not only your romantic relationships but those with good friends and business partners. You are likely to be more open and affectionate at this time. For those that are single, this can be a good time for a new romance.

If you have been in conflict with someone and want to reconnect, this is the optimum time to do so. The only thing you need to watch out for is that you may veer towards being too easy-going and not looking out for your own interests at this time.

Mars will be retrograde from the 9 September until 13 of November (the effects may be felt from 25 July 2020 to 2 January 2021 when allowing for the shadow period). When Mars is transiting retrograde we are reevaluating our power, drive, energy, and assertiveness.

This will be taking place in the area of your chart that is associated with your 3rd house of siblings, communications and your local neighborhood. You may find that matters related to these subjects are slowed down to a snail’s pace and fraught with difficulty when it comes to getting things done. 

Up until the 13th of October, there can be a tendency to over-react and it can be hard to see situations as they truly are. The 13th of October may bring a situation to a head, and may lead to a type of explosion of energies/frustration.

This is certainly not the only time that Mars (energy, drive, ambition, anger, libido) will find itself frustrated this year. In fact, a lot of 2020 will feel like a push-pull, stop-start sort of energy as Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn will be having a lot of sway over Mars as well. It may take until mid-January 2021 before you feel like you are making any real progress at all.

As it turns out, the 13th of October is also when Mercury stations retrograde for the final time this year. This is the start of the retrograde phase, where mix-ups and delays are to be expected, so pressures are likely to be quite intense then.

The Mercury retrograde phase is from 13 Oct 2020 to 3 Nov 2020, but the shadow period will be from 23 September to 19 November. This will be occurring in your 10th house of career and public reputation. 

You may find that you need to double-check your work more thoroughly at this time, as errors are more likely to slip through the cracks at this time. It is also possible that you may hear from those that you use to work with, particularly if they were in a higher position than you.

From the 27th of October, Mercury will retrograde back into your 9th house of overseas travel, philosophy, religion and beliefs, publishing, the law, and other countries and cultures. This is also the house of higher education, so you might hear from people that you knew through college or university. You may also hear from people that you know through religious or philosophical organizations or that live overseas.

For most of October, it is likely to be a fortunate time for you when it comes to finances. You may benefit from money via your partner, a bank, taxation, inheritance or insurances.

From late October to late November, you may be drawn to art and other cultural experiences. This is a wonderful time to get away on a long-distance trip if you can. Your appreciation for new and different locations, adventures and people is stronger at this time. Relationships formed now may teach you things that you have not been exposed to before.

From late November until mid-December is likely to be a favorable time concerning your career and public reputation. You are seen as easy to get along with and people tend to view you in a good light at this time. You may be more involved in artistic, creative or diplomatic matters related to your career, even if this is not usually the case.

There is a possibility of falling for or becoming romantically involved with someone that you work with at this time. This romantic interest could be a boss or someone that is perceived as being in a higher position than you at this time.

From mid-December, you may find yourself interacting more with your friends and in groups. This is a great time to be mingling with others, whether that be with friends, or at meetings or conferences. The friendship component of any romantic relationships you are involved in will be more important to you now. Your ability and willingness to compromise in general is improved during this time.
