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 10th house of career and public reputation 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 your career or how you appear in the public gaze cannot go on in the same fashion that they have been up until now. 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 Jan to mid-February you may tend to identify with your beliefs very strongly. You may also tend to try and convince others of your beliefs. You would do better if you can resist the impulse during this time.
This is a great time to broaden your horizons and learn more in general, particularly if it is new or foreign to you. You may also be traveling more, particularly overseas or to places that have a different culture than yours. You may be more involved with the law at this time and may need to watch that you do not push your luck too much in this arena.
From mid-January until early February you may want to keep your relationships low-key. For some, this may indicate a secret or clandestine romantic situation. For others, it may just be wanting to keep things more removed from other people and situations at this time.
You may also find that you are more selfless and giving to your partner or others at this time. This may also be a time of hidden or psychological issues in regards to relationships.
From early February to early March, you are likely to be more willing to compromise and want to relate and interact with others. People find you charming and magnetic now. You are at your most appealing, both physically and emotionally.
This is a fun time for you, where you feel easy going and non-combative, and it would be a great time to get away for a holiday or spend more time with friends.
From the 16th of February until the 9th of March, Mercury will be retrograde, which can cause all sorts of mix-ups and delays. You may find that you experience Mercury retrograde type issues for a longer period though, as the shadow period will extend from the beginning of February and the end of March
For you, Mercury will be about rethinking, re-evaluating and re-doing matters related to your 12th house of hidden and secret matters. This is a time when self-defeating issues may come back to trip you up.
This can also be a time when working behind the scenes can run into issues. If you have spent time in places of confinement or seclusion such as a hospital, prison or spiritual retreat, you might encounter people you know through these places.
Near the end of the retrograde period on March 4, Mercury will duck into your 11th house of groups, friends, and organizations. This may result in you seeing long lost friends and acquaintances.
You may find that you run into people that you know from groups and organizations that you have not seen for a while or in completely different surroundings. This can also be a good time to go back and work on some hopes and dreams that you may have started on but didn’t get around to completing.
Mid-February to the end of March is likely to find you extremely ambitious and willing to put in the hard work needed to succeed. You may have difficulty now if you are closely supervised or watched over in the workplace. You need a certain amount of autonomy to do what you want to do at your own pace now.
In fact, you may find yourself feeling quite rebellious against any type of authority at this time. You may not feel that this is the case, but find that authority figures, in general, seem determined to stand in your way during this time.
It is very easy to get into disputes with co-workers at this time, but you would do best to resist doing so if you can. Try to pick your battles, and work alone where possible.
From early March until early April, 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 items that give you a sense 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 April until early August 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.
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 3rd house of siblings, your local neighborhood and communications in general. 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 may 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 handing situations one way to the other extreme may do more harm than good.
The beginning of April to mid-May is likely to be 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 that 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 the right people to work with, this could be very beneficial for you.
Mid-May to the last week of June could 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.
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 4th house of home and family. There may be mix-ups concerning your family, especially communications with your parents. There could be long lost relatives that show up during this time. Matters to do with your house, particularly selling or buying are likely to be meet with mixups and delays.
Late June to early September 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.
Eary August until early September, 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.
From early September until early October is likely to be a great time to get away for holidays if you can. This is a time when you have little time for work and heavy topics 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 to spend with them. For those in relationships, this is likely to be a carefree and relaxed time. You feel able to be yourself and appreciated for exactly who you are.
For those that are artistically inclined, this can be a very productive time. For those that are not so talented, an appreciation for the creative work of others is likely now.
Mars will be retrograde from the 9th of September until the 13th 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 all about yourself, your appearance, personality and how others perceive you. 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 October to 3 November, but the shadow period will be from 23 September to 19 November. This will be occurring in your 8th house.
This can cause delays and mix-ups in regards to shared finances and resources. This can include such matters as inheritances, taxation, and insurances. There may be a need to double-check that everything is as it should be concerning these topics.
On the 27th of October, Mercury will move back into your 7th house of relationships. There may be issues relating to communications between you and your partners (business or romantic) during this time. You may also hear from ex-partners as well.
For most of October, 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 you need to knuckle down and work. In the workplace, however, you should be able to schmooze well most everyone. Your health is likely to be good at this time, but you may need to watch your weight.
From late October until late November, 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 be too easy-going and not look out for your own interests at this time.
From late November until mid-December should be a fortunate time when it comes to finances. You may benefit from money via your partner, a bank, taxation, inheritance or insurances.
From mid-December, 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.
