Below are some of the main Astrological Influences for 2020 and Beyond
Mighty Mercury is a small planet closest to the Sun and is named after the Roman messenger God Mercury who had wings on his helmet who ruled luck, travel, divination, communications, commerce, trickery and financial increase. Messenger Mercury changes signs every two or three weeks.
Venus the planet of love, beauty, the arts, cooperation and $$$ changes sign every month or so. She also goes retrograde every 18 months for about 6 weeks and in 2020, Venus will be retrograde May 13 – June 25 in Gemini. There is a shadow period commencing April 9 which finishes July 29. Venus has affinity with the feminine yin energy and when she’s retrograde, emotional issues, especially in relationships can spew up like a volcano for some. Many people are affected to some extent but if you have Libra or Taurus in your chart you will be very strongly affected.
Mars the planet of motivation, energy, activity, ambition, aggression and war. He changes sign every 6 weeks or so and goes retrograde every 26 months. In 2020 Mars is going retrograde in Aries from September 9 – November 14. Allow a few days either side of these dates for the shadow affect. Mars is also the ruler of Aries and traditionally Scorpio and is considered a male or yang energy. Mars Rx will affect Arians and Scorpios most strongly. When Mars is retrograde, you could be feeling a bit flat or unmotivated. Sexual desire may diminish and you may feel like lounging around not doing much. New projects started may experience difficulties. Feelings of anger and frustration may rise up.
Jupiter in Capricorn
Mother Jupiter left Sagittarius on December 3, 2019 and moved into Capricorn where she will reside until December 19, 2020. Jupiter has a feminine or yin affinity and is the planet of good fortune, optimism and confidence. In 2020 she will expand our horizons both emotionally and physically. In Capricorn, Jupiter is likely to bring more balance to the earthy heavier energies of practicality and physicality. Jupiter doesn’t like all Capricorn’s rules and Capricorn doesn’t like Jupiter’s sense of adventure and spontaneity so compromise will be necessary.
Jupiter Conjuncts Saturn
Every 20 years there’s a ‘Grand Conjunction’ when Jupiter full of boundless energy and zeal, races up to serious Saturn. During this time, they are ignoring each other until Jupiter finally catches Saturn on December 21, 2020 when they are in alignment to the Sun. Then they finally become friends, going hand in hand into Aquarius to begin the New Year. The Grand Conjunction is a powerful force in the heavens that has been connected to the rise and fall of world leaders, royalty and celebrities. It’s enough to change governments! World leaders have even died in office in years of previous Grand Conjunctions. What does this mean for us mere mortals?
Saturn in Capricorn
Serious Saturn resides in Capricorn until March 21, 2020. Saturn makes things physical through responsibility and often hard work. Saturn has an affinity for maleness or yang energy. No more airy fairy nonsense, the time has come to get serious and real. Serious Saturn wants cold hard physical results and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. So excuses just don’t cut the mustard any longer. It’s all about making your true heartfelt desires real this year.
Saturn in Aquarius
Although Aquarius is depicted as the water bearer, he is actually an Air sign. The mental realms become more significant after March 21, 2020. Saturn is comfortable here and encourages the development of structures relating to the mind. We can expect to see further developments related to the internet, education, aviation and technology. If you have Saturn in Aquarius or Leo, you will be more strongly affected than most of us.
Uranus in Taurus
Our tumultuous friend Uranus moved into Taurus on May 16, 2018 and resides there until April 26, 2026. The Great Awakener Uranus will be serving up great change and revolutionary trends worldwide. Uranus is associated with rebellion, revolution, radicalisation, shocks, electricity, turmoil, lightning, technology and the internet. It is a bringer of unexpected things, but these are not always negative. Sometimes Uranus brings us good fortune like a ‘bolt from the blue’. Getting your power bill down by installing solar power is a fortunate example of the Uranian influence or even winning the online lotto! Uranus has an affinity for male or yang energy.
Neptune in Pisces
Neptune entered Pisces on February 3, 2011 and will stay there until approximately January 2026. Pisces is the natural home of Neptune and this transpersonal planet takes approximately 165 years to make a complete orbit around the sun. Neptune in Pisces heralds the development of the arts, spirituality and the release from the subconscious of secret and hidden information. Artists, dancers, musos and mystics, your time has come! Rejoice in your creative freedom! Neptune has an affinity with female yin energy.
Pluto in Capricorn
Here’s another planet in earthy Capricorn, Pluto has been here since 2008 and will stay until 2024. Pluto is a ‘transpersonal’ planet and is associated with life and death. This means Pluto deals with energy beyond this present lifetime, so we can experience sudden and inexplicable karma through the agency of Pluto. You may not have a clue as to why a certain situation is happening ‘to you’, but be assured, the Universe does keep count. Everything is acknowledged and noted by Spirit. Karma weaves her magic path through our lives often through the agency of powerful Pluto. Karma chameleon Pluto sometimes comes to tear down, destroy and decimate anything holding back our spiritual growth. Often we don’t realise what’s happening immediately but one way or another, we will grow. Secrets will be exposed.
Solar and Lunar Eclipses 2020
All eclipses represent change and transformation and 2020 has six eclipses which occurs roughly every 4.5 years. Solar Eclipses represent male aspects whilst lunar eclipses represent the feminine aspects. Eclipses force us to confront our own shadow nature or the dark side of our personal subconscious. They are also a sign from the Universe that change will soon visit us on the Earth plane and it can be unpredictable and unexpected change. Change doesn’t always occur on the exact date of the eclipse, sometimes it is weeks or many months before or after the eclipse that something truly transformative happens which is usually a big or life changing event.
2020 Astrology Summary
2020 is a big year focusing on shaking up the past so we can start a new cycle. Groundedness is important and spiritual energies will be made manifest on the physical plane. 2020 represents a new cycle opening a new decade of innovation and change. It’s also a time of hidden secrets being exposed which will affect millions of people, no doubt many will be disappointed by their leaders. Many secrets will be exposed through the agency of Pluto who comes to tear down structures so we can rebuild something better.
Do the Right Thing
This year especially, it’s important to do the ‘right thing’ and ‘play by the rules’. Capricorn isn’t impressed with those who try to ‘game the system’ and he is a stickler for ensuring that everything is above board. Those people not playing fair will be caught, whether they be politicians, celebrities or c-suite executives.
Watch Finances & Time Management
Try to maintain a peaceful calm demeanour and make sensible practical decisions. It’s not the best time to float off into the ether without a care in the world. Watch your finances and time management this year also. Despite whatever is happening physically, try to stay grounded by walking, being in touch with nature and having time out away from devices and other people. In your bedroom, remove all electrical devices when you are trying to sleep. There could be many instances where you might feel ‘wired’ with racing thoughts going through your brain, particularly if you live in a large city.
A Time of Liberation!
It’s a time of liberation where the veils will be lifted from our eyes so that we may see the truth. Be prepared but be open to all the opportunities Spirit has to offer this year.
