You might not have as much control as you wish you did of a plan or process that relies on someone else to manage it. But you can hopefully see reasons why you should feel reassured that you’re about to benefit from what’s put in place. Something now appears to be less complicated or streamlined. Not only will this make your life easier, but it will give you the upper hand in certain discussions, too.
When Saturn retrograded back out of your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery yesterday he left it empty. However, having returned in March and with Mars here for nearly seven weeks of that time, fuelling a passion for adventure this is something that won’t go off the boil. Saturn will not only return in December but will bring Jupiter with him and until then he has left you with a glimpse of what you are preparing for. In the meantime, Saturn has returned to your financial sector to take care of unfinished business.
The Moon has come full circle from an eclipsing Full Moon in your relationship sector last month to find the Sun gone from Gemini and a lot less push back. However, the Moon will clash with Venus today, while she is still in her early days in direct motion in Gemini. This could create some relationship tension but as the planet of love, Venus will be using this to get a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Upbeat developments or circumstances in your emotional world could encourage you to throw caution to the wind. But don’t put yourself at risk of delaying what you want to happen by being too carefree – or forceful. Your devil-may-care attitude toward relationships, or one, in particular, needs curtailing. You’re sexy when you’re on fire, but it could be a problem if you’re fiery.
Mars’ departure from your career sector on Sunday was always going to see the urgency drop back but you will be surprised by how quickly this happens. With Neptune in his first full week in retrograde motion in your career sector and the dwarf planet Ceres in her last full week in direct motion before turning retrograde next week, they both have the brakes on. While the things that Mars has set in motion will continue to play out, there is no longer the call to take on anything new. Instead, with Neptune and Ceres both turning retrograde there is a chance to work with what is already on the table. Meanwhile, the Moon’s return to your work sector mid week will do more than give you an intuitive read on work and job matters. This will create positive conditions across the income, work and career fronts, as the Moon not only forms a friendly aspect to Neptune and Ceres in your career sector but to the Sun and Mercury in your income sector.
Starting the week with the Moon in your romantic sector is always an advantage, with romantically charged lunar vibes able to grab your attention from the get go. Even more so when this is no ordinary week but Venus, the planet of love’s first full week in direct motion in Gemini. After looking to the past for the last six weeks, the Moon has come along just as there is a chance to look to the future with confidence. With Venus not leaving until August, the most romantically charged weeks of 2020 are still in front of you. In the meantime, the Moon will not only return to your relationship sector on Thursday but will come full circle from an eclipsing Full Moon four weeks earlier. This was a clash between your personal and relationship needs and four weeks on, what remains is a better read on what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
You have reached an important week on both the income and financial fronts and while they will eventually clash it won’t be until the weekend. The Sun is always in your income sector at this time of year, shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options while having Mercury in retrograde motion here is having wider implications. With Neptune in his first full week in retrograde motion in your career sector and Ceres her last in direct motion here, the doors are opening to the past, second chances and untapped professional and income potential. Meanwhile, on the other side of the financial fence and where the focus is on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, things are becoming more empowered. Jupiter and Pluto will align in your financial sector on Tuesday, just two days before Saturn returns with the power to move mountains and ahead of an eclipsing Full Moon that will energise both sides of the financial fence over the weekend.
July is all about creating more security and stability, and particularly in a financial sense. A Lunar Eclipse on the 5th could bring a development that has been building for some time. Allow this to make crystal clear where you stand financially or what your next monetary move must be. A backward-moving Mercury complicates your earnings until the 12th, so it could take until the end of the month before you bring the changes or improvements you need. As for one tiring or draining career-related scenario, you could find that’s resolved on or around the 27th, too.
Love & Romance
The coming weeks could bring a much-needed reality check with matters of the heart. What comes to light, particularly toward the end of the month, could reveal where you had an unrealistic understanding of romantic or relationship circumstances. But rather than feel that what emerges brings you back to Earth with an uncomfortable bump, be grateful for it. You’re about to see your love life through a more realistic lens.
There is a mixed bag of influences this year and I am not just talking about the different dynamics in play and the different areas of your life this will impact. I am also talking about the surprise developments that make this a year that is partly a case of ‘what you see is what you get’ but partly a case of ‘prepare to be surprised’. In the ‘what you see is what you get’ category you have a major and stunning focus on money matters that is evident from the get go. You begin the year with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, the planets of luck, change and the planet that has the power to move mountains together in your financial sector, making this one of your most powerful financial years in at least a decade. Pluto, planet of change and revolution has been here since 2008 and in fact returned during Jupiter’s last visit 12 years ago. Pluto has been here ever since, while Saturn began a three year financial boot camp in 2017. Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion has returned to help exploit all the potential now available to you.
Saturn will still demand that you take responsibility but this is one year when by taking responsibility there is not only a chance to take your financial power back but there is a chance for real financial growth. The other thing obvious from the get go is that last year’s focus on your relationships will continue into the New Year but mainly during the first six weeks of the year. Meanwhile in the ‘prepare to be surprised category you will find surprise developments on the adventurous and romantic fronts this year. There is always planetary activity in an adventurous part of your chart in early the months of the year and that will be the case this year as well, though this is of the mundane variety and will have run its course on 20th February. It is what happens next that will take you by surprise, beginning with Saturn’s return to an adventurous part of your chart on 22nd March and Mars’ on 31st March. Where Mars will spend six weeks fuelling a passion for adventure, Saturn will spend until 2nd July bringing a chance to take adventure, travel, learning and discovery seriously.
This is more a practice run or a chance to lay down foundations, with Saturn not only returning on 17th December and then spending the majority of the next three years in an adventurous part of your chart but Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returning on 20th December to begin a journey that will dominate 2021. The other surprise development is Venus, the planet of love’s return to Gemini on 4th April. At first, the only surprise is that this is early in the year to start her 24 day visit. So early that Venus will be forced to wait for the Sun, keeping the planet of love in Gemini from 4th April to 8th August. Instead of having the planet of love in Gemini for 24 days she is here for over four months, with much of that time while a major adventurous groundswell is developing.
This is one year that while it promises a lot from the get go on the relationship front, is set to deliver so much more. On both the romantic and relationship fronts there are developments that put this year in a different category to most years. The year begins with no planetary activity on the relationship front, for the first time in 15 months, though this is a very brief window between Mercury’s departure from your relationship sector in the final days of 2019 and Mars’ return in the early days of this year. By 3rd January Mars will not only be in your relationship sector but a month after lucky Jupiter left, returns to spend January and February exploiting the potential created last year. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, the first two months of this year are a chance push the ‘reset’ button or build on the journey last year took you on.
Yet despite the fact that Mars’ departure from your relationship sector on 17th February will leave you with no planetary activity on the relationship front, this is far from the end of the story. However, for the time being, this will be a chance to shift gear and give romantic matters a chance. It is on 4th April, just four days before a romantically charged Full Moon on 8th April that Venus, the planet of love returns for what should be a 24 day visit to Gemini. Instead, a retrograde turn on 13th May will keep her here until 8th August, turning a 24 day Venus return into the planet of love becoming your house guest for four months. In retrograde motion from 13th May to 25th June, this is when Venus will take you on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane.
It is during this time that something game changing happens, in that on 5th May the lunar nodes will shift, the North Node returning to Gemini and the South Node to your relationship sector, where they will police a balance between your personal and relationship needs for the next 18 months. This also means that this is where the eclipses of 2020 and 2021 will fall, starting with a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector on 7th June, a lunar eclipse in Gemini on 30th November and a total solar eclipse in your relationship sector on 15th December. Until the lunar nodes leave in January 2022, this is a major new relationship chapter. All this is on top of the more mundane planetary focus on romantic matters, from 6th September to 22nd November and on your relationships, from 22nd November to 9th January 2021.
2020 has the potential to be your most defining financial year in at least a decade or a potentially a lifetime. What you have are the final months of a three year financial boot camp overlapping your most important year for financial growth and expansion in over a decade. Saturn has been in your financial sector since 2017, asking that you take responsibility and if necessary, bringing the kind of financial challenges that required you to take responsibility. These are the foundations that lucky Jupiter returned in December 2019 to start building on, with the hard work of the last two years creating the foundations and preparing you for the opportunities that this year brings. It has been six decades since you last had Jupiter and Saturn in your financial sector at the same time, but there is another factor that takes this in a whole new level.
It was back in 2008, during Jupiter’s last visit that Pluto, the planet of change and revolution returned to your financial sector and he has been here ever since. So it wasn’t just Saturn that Jupiter returned to find in the closing weeks of 2019 but Pluto as well. This is the first time that Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, the planets of luck, change and the power to move mountains have ever been in your financial sector at the same time in our lifetime, creating conditions never seen before. Saturn will leave your financial sector from 22nd March to 2nd July, giving Jupiter and Pluto time to focus on change and expanding financial potential, without Saturn’s demands. Saturn will return to tie up loose ends and will continue to give you your financial backbone until leaving on 17th December, just three days before Jupiter will leave on 20th December. There has never been a financial year this primed with the potential to take your financial power back.
It is during the early months of the year that you will have a chance to throw yourself into this, especially when Mars moves through from 17th February to 31st March. In the meantime, while the conditions on the income side of the fence are not as dramatic, there is the potential for this to be a lucrative year as well. A lunar eclipse in your income sector on 11th January comes just as Saturn and Pluto are aligned in your financial sector, making the early weeks of the week especially powerful and also game setting on the income and financial front. While the whole year is important for taking your financial power back, it is the middle months of the year that will be the most potentially lucrative. Especially during the period from 29th May to 6th September.
While having Neptune in your career sector since 2012 means that there is continuous professional activity all year, this has become the normal pattern. What you have this year is a fairly typical professional year, taking into account that having ongoing planetary activity on the career front is atypical. What does set this year apart is the good start things get off to on both the job and career fronts. While there is usually no planetary activity on the job front until later in the year, what you have at the start of this year is the tail end of planetary activity in 2019 still playing out. And I really do mean tail end, with Mars in his final days in your work sector as we move into the New Year and gone by 3rd December. Apart from the Moon’s monthly visits and a Full Moon on 7th May, there will be no more planetary activity on the job front until Mercury returns on 27th September. This will kick off the most active months of 2020 on the job front, which will take until Venus leaves on 16th December to run their course.
This makes starting the year with Mars here an advantage, for while he will leave in the early days of the year, he allows you to start strong and with the momentum of months of planetary activity and momentum already banked. At the same time, this will give you a chance to catch your breath, for it is just a few days after Mars leaves your work sector that things will start up on the career front. It begins with Venus’ return to your career sector on 14th January, where she will team up with Neptune on her own. With Neptune focused on your professional dreams and Venus on updating your professional desires and expectations for the coming year, this gives them time before the Sun returns to take a more objective approach to things.
Venus will leave on 8th February so won’t be here when the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options from 19th February to 20th March. However, Mercury’s return on 4th February, four days before Venus leaves will give you a chance to put heart and mind on the same page for a few days. Mercury will leave on 5th March but will return for a double dip visit from 16th March to 11th April. This will be a chance for a do over and to reconsider your options, ahead of Mars’ return just over a month later. For it is when Mars moves through your career sector from 13th May to 28th June that there will be a chance to really fire things up. This is the same bonus chapter that work and job matters got late last year and is just running its course in the early days of the year.
