Horoscopes January 2020
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Your status in the world changes this year with planets lined up the 10th House of your Solar Chart. Your profession, role as a parent or grandparent, marriage and any position held in society is highlighted early in the year. It is time for action. Fortunately, you are an action-oriented person and well and truly able to rise to any challenge. The trick is to set your goals and keep moving forward. The steps that you take in January ensure that you slowly but surely improve your status in society as the year progresses. You received an extra boost of energy when your ruling planet Mars moves into your Zodiac Sign mid-year, on June 28.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
The line-up of planets prompts you to seek more adventure in 2020. You may plan to broaden your horizons with overseas travel, study, or involvement in sporting interests. Anything that lifts your spirits and focuses you on the bigger picture is likely to appeal. Many planets are in your fellow Earth Sign Capricorn this year, as well as the erratic Uranus in Taurus indicating that it is time for action. You are being propelled out of your usual comfort zones. The trick is to think of life as being like a Disney fun park. This way you can embrace the excitement rather than feel daunted by any challenges and make most of the current planetary placements.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
The cycle of life is a theme for 2020. You are well aware at the start of the year that ‘seasons comes and seasons go”. An event or person may trigger this awareness early in the year, or it may be a result of many realisations last year. Either way you feel compelled to make changes to the way that you invent your time, energy and money. Luckily you are an adaptable person, often revelling in the stimulation that comes with life changes, able to catch or dodge curve balls and revel in life’s celebrations. A Lunar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign at the end of the year – November 30 – sparks the final realisation of this part of your life journey.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Planets are passing through Capricorn, your opposite Sign, keeping the focus well and truly on significant others in your life. Nevertheless, the emphasis needs to be on self-care and heartfelt support of loved ones, rather than any feelings of obligation. Imagine if others were only with you, or nurturing you, because of a strong sense of duty. You wouldn’t like it. So, the planets are calling on you to listen to your heart and act accordingly. This is not selfish behaviour. You are a natural nurturer. As such if you do cut ties with some, you quickly form more lasting unions based on love. A Solar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign occurs on June 21, 2020 highlighting a significant event, person or “aha” moments.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
New Year’s Resolutions, even if they are soon broken, set an intention for the year. Leos need to set resolutions around lifestyle. This means habits. Social scientists say that habits are formed in the emotional part of the brain. So, Leos need to examine emotional needs, form good habits and healthy lifestyles during January as a precursor for the rest of the year. Your workaday life is also important. So, you may like to examine your work/life balance or perhaps develop new skills that enhance your attractiveness as an employee or effectiveness as an employer. Starting 2020 with a healthy attitude sets you up for success, particularly later in the year in March and mid-December when Saturn goes into your opposing Zodiac Sign of Aquarius.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
January starts the new year and also something new in the lives of Virgos. This may be linked with a creative project, or perhaps an activity or event associated with children. You may even be ready for a new romance. Whatever your personal scenario, 2020 is an exciting year with so many planets lining up in your fellow Earth Sign of Capricorn. This is the ideal time for start-ups. Finances will be of major concern to most people this year and Virgos are likely to prosper simply because you can keep on doing what you have always been doing – living a frugal life, living within your means and perhaps growing your own produce. Slow living suits you and augurs well in current times.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Librans start the year with an action-packed home life as the planets square off in Capricorn. It is time to get your household in order, if you haven’t already. This could mean that you have visitors galore, that your family life changes with the addition or departure of a key member, or it could simply mean that you have chores that demand a focus on household management. Your usual peace-loving ways may be challenged by this extra activity. However, you know the value of home as a haven and are likely to delight in the company of loved ones as they gather around. As you establish your foundations early in the year you are putting in the groundwork for the rest of 2020.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Neighbourhoods were once the hubs of social interaction with people meeting face-to-face. Nowadays social media has taken a stronger hold. You realise the value of personal interaction and are likely to be focussed on local affairs at the start of 2020. Something or someone is calling on you to connect with your neighbours, a local group or local politics during January. This may set the scene for the year. Another possibility is that your siblings have taken centre stage temporarily, or that short journeys and local transport are the focus. Whatever your personal scenario your connections to your immediate environment need attention. Clear communication is the key. Avoid conflict over money matters stands you in good stead.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Sagittarians need to slow down after a busy 2019, however; there is still plenty of planetary action in 2020. It is time to take stock of your self-worth. This could be self-esteem, how much you value your own contribution to society, or it could be your finances. Is it time to work smart or work hard for your income? Further changes may be required as you re-evaluate a busy 2019. A Lunar Eclipse on June 6 sheds some light on personal matters and a Solar Eclipse next December 15, 2020 sparks an event that rewards your efforts. The trick is to consolidate on steps taken in 2019 and keep moving in the right direction until then.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
2020 may be the Chinese Year of the Rat but it is certainly the western astrology ‘Year of the Goat’ with so many planets lined up in your Zodiac Sign. Capricorns are living examples of the adage “all good things come to those who wait’. You can move from strength to strength building on anything that boosts your personal health and happiness. Some of the astrological weather of 2020 depends on your past behaviour. In other words, Karma is at play now. If you have worked slowly and steadily towards personal and professional goals, shouldering your responsibilities then you are likely to reap big rewards this year. January is a power packed month with a Lunar Eclipse in your Sign which leads the way to a significant year.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Aquarians need to start 2020 slowly, laying the ground work for projects that are likely to start up later in the year. January sees you working behind the scenes. The Sun is in the 12th House of your Solar Chart indicating that institutions such as hospitals, the armed forces, museums and perhaps also prisons and outback stations. Large animals are also linked with this area of astrology. So, these areas of life may be prominent in your life at the start of the year. Your ruling planet Saturn moves in and out of your Zodiac Sign this year indicating that you are working towards something significant. Experiences early in the year, whether pleasant or unpleasant, are likely to prove worthwhile in the long term.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Your long-term friendships play a positive role in your life right now. Groups and clubs may also be highlighted. It is time to set long-term goals and then garner the support that is needed. If friendship groups need to change then let go and reach out to new ones. The idea is that as a sensitive Piscean you need to surround yourself with social contacts who are positive, uplifting and inspiring. You are too sensitive to be adversely influenced by other people. The year 2020 gives you a chance to get the balance right. The trick is to learn the lesson of self-love as one of your ruling planets, Neptune, continues to wend its way through your Zodiac Sign.
