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 4th house of home and family 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.

Likely, issues related to your home, real estate, or family (particularly your parents) 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 January to mid-February you are likely to expend a lot more energy dealing with communications and/or transportation during this time. 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 mid-January to early February, 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 instead. 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 February to early March, 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 during 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 may need to watch out for is that you may too easy-going and not look out for your own interests at this time.

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 work, health, and fitness or pets. In the workplace, you may need to double-check what you are doing, as you may be more prone to missing things at this time.

You may also find that there are mix-ups with test results, or callbacks to get retested for something medical. You may also find that a pet can return at this time, or may need some attention for a prior problem.

The very last period of the retrograde period, from March 4, will see Mercury slip back into the astrological house that is all about your 5th house of children, creativity, and fun. This is likely to result in delays with regards to your children or creative projects.

This is a good time to go back to creative projects that you want to rework. You may find yourself returning to a hobby or pastime that you enjoy during this time. This is also the house of romance, so you might hear from exes.

Mid-February to the end of March can be a time when you expend a lot of energy in regards to your home or family. You may be renovating your home at this time or there may be problems with those that you live or with your family. This can affect your parents in particular.

You may be more difficult to live with at this time, as you may be more insistent on having things your own way. This can also indicate disagreements with others over real estate and property.

From early March to early April could be a fortunate time when it comes to finances. You may benefit from money via your partner, a bank, taxation, inheritance or insurances.

The beginning of April to mid-May can be a time when you are extremely focused on yourself and what brings you joy. Your willpower may be extremely low at this time. If you are involved in sporting events however, you are likely to do extremely well at this time. In romantic relationships, you are likely to be quite ardent and frisky.

Your relationship with your children, if you have any, could be a little rocky at this time. You would do well to find a way to use up physical reserves of energy as an outlet for yourself and them. Do watch that your children are not putting themselves at risk during this time though.

From early April to early August, 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.

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 9th house of travel, foreigners and other cultures, higher education, religion, beliefs, philosophy, publishing, and the law. 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 these 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 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 a situation one way to the other extreme may do more harm than good.

Mid-May to the last week of June should be a time when you can accomplish a lot of work. You may find that you get upset during this time if you are not given sufficient credit, or what you see as sufficient credit for what work you do. This is the house of health, so having a physical outlet for your energy is important, much better than keeping things bottled up.

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 10th house of career and public reputation. This can cause issues concerning your work. 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. 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.

Late June to early September can be a time of conflict with your partner, either business or romantic. This can also affect your close friendships. You may be more focused on yourself and your goals during this time, to the detriment of others.

If you can channel the energy you feel at this time into a joint venture, you are likely to weather this period better. You could do this through physical activity, or working together on a project.

From early August to early September is likely to be a favorable time with regard to 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 during 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 early September to early October, you may find yourself interacting with your friends and in groups more. 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.

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 the 7th house of relationships, both romantic and business. 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 2nd house of income, finances, and possessions. 

You may want to ensure that you are paid correctly during this time, as well as to double-check change and receipts when purchasing items. Signing contracts may be bothersome at this time, so make sure to check for errors.

On the 27th of October, Mercury will move back into the 1st house. This house is all about you, your appearance, your general health and how you appear to others.

You may be tempted to makeover yourself in some way at this time. You would be better off researching new looks and undergoing the make-over after the retrograde period. You may have trouble getting your point of view across to others, or feel that people are not seeing your real personality at this time.

For most of October, 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 late October to late November, you are likely to be more willing to compromise and want to relate and interact with others. People find you charming and magnetic now, and 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 Late November until mid-December 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 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 mid-December, 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.
