A truth that emerges now could be slightly disconcerting. But it probably won’t take you long to accept that you’re in a better position by knowing what you know rather than remaining oblivious to it. If somebody has been economical with the truth, then that could be apparent now or shortly. But, strangely, this could also help you to make a decision that you’ve pondered for a while and been unable to make until now.
While the Moon’s monthly visits to your relationship sector can evoke strong emotional responses, push buttons and even create relationship tension, its final hours this month are full of potential and support. The Moon is not only drawing on communication support available but during what is not only a good day for friendship and relationship building but for healing. The stars align across the communication, friendship and relationship fronts today but in a way that also brings the past, present and future together in a healing and cathartic way.
If the Moon pushed any buttons on the relationship front yesterday, its final hours in your relationship sector today offer a chance to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. It is the Moon’s friendly aspect to the South Node in your communication sector that is not only responsible for finding your voice but a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
Affectionate tokens and romantic gestures deserve plenty of proper consideration. They also need to be supported by thought-through actions. Before parting with cash or maxing out a credit card, consider more memorable and authentic ways to express feelings. You and the one you love could be at opposite ends of the spectrum regarding what matters most. Curtailing material gestures could be a good start to find a necessary balance.
The week might begin with professional pressure or work/life balance tension running high but will end with a new sense of professional and job confidence. However, it won’t be a gradual transition from one to the other, with the timing of the shift down to one pivotal 64 minute period on Wednesday. The week begins with Mercury, in his final days in your career sector under pressure from all four planets in your home and family sector and that will be the case until he leaves on Wednesday. This is bringing home the work/life balance reminders delivered last month, with Mercury’s departure allowing any work/life balance tension to drop back. However, it is the Moon’s return to your work sector just 64 minutes before Mercury leaves that will put it there to catch any tension as it falls, passing it onto the planets there in order to turn this into motivation, especially to work smarter. By the time Venus returns to your career sector over the weekend everything will have changed.
The Moon will visit both your romantic and relationship sectors this week, with different but equally important and timely implications. Just having the Moon return to your romantic sector on Monday is an advantage, with this last visit before Venus, the planet of love leaves an adventurous part of your chart over the weekend a chance to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together again. However, by Tuesday this will have become a Full Moon and forming a friendly aspect to Venus before it leaves, this will give the spirit of romance and adventure its biggest boost yet. Until she leaves over the weekend Venus will continue to nurture the spirit of romance and adventure and after four months will leave you with something that will be relatively easy to maintain. It is just a few hours before Venus leaves that the Moon will return to your relationship sector, with a chance to check in on your relationships over the weekend.
While the first planet to reach your income sector this year doesn’t arrive until later next month, you get the next best thing this week and arguably an even better deal. While there might be some professional pressure or work/life balance tension at the start of the week, this is helping to address any work/life balance issues before Venus returns to your career sector over the weekend. This is when income potential will get its first real break this year. Even though the Sun has already spent a month in your career sector and by the time he leaves on Wednesday Mercury has been here for over two months, Venus has a different agenda. Because the hard work has already been invested this will allow Venus to do what she does best, which as the planet of money is to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. It helps that a lot has already been banked on the job and career fronts.
Your personal feel-good factor could increase significantly this month, due to steps or risks taken recently. A Full Moon on the 3rd brings closure and a new chapter where matters of the heart are concerned. Relief replaces uncertainty – or something thrilling awaits. But with your ruling planet, Venus, affecting your career and status from the 7th, praise and recognition could finally come your way. If there’s a bold career move you’ve been considering, then you have a perfect cosmic safety net to help you embark upon or pursue it.
Love & Romance
A Full Moon influencing love, romance, and self-expression on the 3rd may bring a surprising or an unusual development. But it could also ignite or reignite your sense of adventurousness and encourage you to look more toward the future with matters of the heart. If you’re single, then an office-based romance may not be out of the question. You have a New Moon affecting your hopes, dreams, and wishes on the 18th. Whatever you wish for, make sure it comes from your heart, and your heart really is ‘in it’ to ‘win it.’
2020 is a big year for home, family and/or property matters but also for work/life balance in general. For while the main weight of planetary activity is on the home front this is also a good year professionally. For the whole of 2019 the lunar nodes worked to police a balance between your home and professional lives and as the weight shifts even more to home and family matters, this will prove invaluable. There will be times that they do clash, especially in mid January and again in the middle months of the year, but these coincide with some of the best points of your professional year. Any work/life balance tension is a case of hitting the guardrails in place and as you do, remembering that those work/life balance guardrails are there for your protection. Protection that is from life becoming lopsided and to ensure that in a year where you can have it all that you actually do get to have it all.
To have Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn meet up in your home and family sector is a once in a lifetime event with the planets of luck, chance and the planet that can give you the power to move mountains, all working as a team. You have had Pluto here since 2008 and Saturn since 2019, so any changes or challenges you were going to face are behind you, with Jupiter returning to bring the opportunities. However, another reason why those work/life balance guardrails are so important, beyond creating a balance between your home and professional lives, is that this year has some unexpected and exciting developments on the adventurous, playful and potentially romantic fronts as well. In terms of what you can expect from this year, the main themes are obvious from the get go, while most other things will come and go in the same order that they do every year.
What I am talking about on the playful and adventurous fronts are outliers, developments that are over and above the normal pattern of any year and with zero indication at the start of the year that they would even be a ‘thing’ this year. It begins with Saturn’s return to your romantic and creative sector on 22nd March, followed by Mercury’s return on 31st March. While Mars is only here for six weeks and Saturn will retrograde back out on 2nd July, this is not only the most powerful injection of energy here in decades, it is a taste of things to come. When Saturn returns on 17th December it will be to spend the majority of the next three years here, while Jupiter will return on 20th December to kick off your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative in a decade. It is just days after Saturn and Mars return in March that the second and unrelated outlier happens. Venus will return to an adventurous part of your chart on 4th April for what should be a 24 day visit, but instead won’t leave until 8th August, over four months later.
On both the romantic and relationship fronts this year brings a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary. In any ordinary year, there will be a lot of focus on matters of the heart and on all things romantic in January and February, as the Sun and the faster moving planets move through your romantic sector. The same thing will happen on the relationship front, when the same planets reach your relationship sector in March and April and because of the close proximity, there can be an overlap between the two. This year you don’t need to wait for the Sun’s return to your romantic sector on 21st January, for you begin the year with Venus, the planet of love here until 14th January. By the time the Sun leaves on 19th February this will end what is the ordinary amount of focus that romantic matters get each year, but this is far from the end of the story.
Things may go quiet for a few weeks, but then they roar back into life in an extraordinary way, starting with Saturn’s return on 22nd March. This is Saturn’s first visit in three decades and while he will retrograde back out on 2nd July, he will not only return on 17th December but just three days before Jupiter’s return on 20th December will keep off your luckiest year for love in over a decade. Back in March, it is just days after Saturn’s return that Mars’ return on 31st March and position here until 13th May will create an extraordinary situation. Saturn returns to take matters of the heart seriously and to prepare for what lies ahead, while Mars returns to fire up your romantic passions and fighting spirit, ready to seize romantic opportunities now.
Meanwhile, something similar is happening on the relationship front. Here there is ongoing planetary activity, with the dwarf planet Eris and Chiron, the planet of healing quietly at work in the background for years if not decades to come. Things become more active when Venus returns from 8th February to 5th March, the Sun from 20th March to 20th April and Mercury from 11th April to 28th April. This is the ordinary and mundane focus that relationship matters get at around this time every year. While this is happening just as Mars and Saturn are creating some extraordinary conditions on the romantic front, it is not until midyear that your relationships get access to extraordinary conditions as well. It begins with Mars’ return to your relationship sector on 28th June for what should be a six week visit aimed at spicing and shaking things up. Instead, a retrograde phase from 10th September to 14th November will keep Mars here for the rest of the year, not leaving until January 2021. Mars will still be here when Saturn and Jupiter make their game changing return to your romantic sector, just days apart in December.
What you see in the early days of the year is not what you can expect to continue, but this still leaves you in the perfect position not only get a good start to this financial year but maintain your momentum. While Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returned to your financial sector in 2018, retrograded back out and then returned again in March 2019 and is now here until 2026, this is the first time in eight decades that you have begun the year with him here. Still in the early years of a seven year journey towards taking your financial power back in a real and authentic way, this allows you to begin the year with the ability to look at money matters through your own filter. For the true power that Uranus brings in terms of taking your financial power back, is your ability to define your own definition of financial success.
At the same time, you also begin the year with Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos in your income sector and having spent the last six weeks of 2019 here, you are ready to fight for what you deserve from the get go. While Mars and Uranus clashed in late November 2019, they have long since sorted out their differences and this allows you to begin 2020 with the rare situation of being equally empowered on the income and financial fronts. While Uranus will stay on and Mars will be gone by 3rd January, spending just the very first days of 2020 in your income sector, this is an advantage that is stamped in from the get go. As Uranus will begin the year still in retrograde motion, Mars is the more active and aggressive force, giving income matters the kind of head start and momentum that can continue after he leaves. It is Uranus’ direct turn on 11th January that will see money matters come out of hibernation but it is not until Venus returns in March that money matters will do more than tick over in the background.
Venus returns once a year to fuel your financial confidence and to update your financial wish list and this will be her third time in three years that she has returned to find Uranus here. This will bring the laws of attraction and synchronicity together and with Venus gone by the time the Sun returns to begin your annual financial housekeeping on 20th April, this could trigger some unexpected financial developments. The Sun is here until 21st May, with Mercury returning from 23rd April to 12th May to help with financial housekeeping. On the other side of the financial fence, while income matters will continue under their own steam after Mars leaves your income sector on 3rd January, things will become more active from Mercury’s return on 27th September. This kicks off planetary activity that won’t end until Venus leaves on 16th December, making the first three days and the last three months of 2020 the most potentially lucrative.
Because the bar has already been raised on the job and career fronts, starting the year with it raised and with ongoing potential on both fronts, means that in many ways 2020 is a continuation of 2019. However, this is one time when this is a good thing. Before we go into the details of what is happening on the job and career fronts, where and when, there is one anomaly to point out and this gives you a clue to the flavour of this year. In every area of your chart you will have one New and one Full Moon and sometimes not even that, with no New Moon in Capricorn this year. However, in your career sector you have two Full Moons and two New Moons and that is extremely rare and even more so when two of them are eclipses. Eclipses aren’t random events and this means there could be some real surprises this year.
The reason for the eclipses is that you have the North Node in your career sector until 5th May and this has been keeping things on track. This is also the reason for a lunar eclipse in your career sector on 11th January and for a solar eclipse here on 21st June. In addition, you have an ordinary New Moon here on 21st July and an ordinary Full Moon on 30th December, bringing a lot of activity into play in the middle and at either end of the year. It is just three days after the lunar eclipse in your career sector that Venus will return to your work sector on 14th January, teaming up with dreamy Neptune to update your expectations on the job front. By the time Mercury returns on 4th February and the Sun on 19th February, you should have a clear and confident sense of what you want on the job front. While both will be gone by 20th March, Mercury will return for a second visit from 16th March to 11th April, with a chance to rethink your options.
This should bring all active planetary activity on the job front to a close for the year, except work and job matters are likely to catch their second wind when Mars moves through from 13th May to 28th June. With Neptune here since 2012 and not leaving for several years work and job matters will never go off the boil but these are likely to be the busiest and most active points of 2020 on the job front. In the meantime, while the North Node will leave your career sector on 5th May, you not only have a solar eclipse here on 21st June but all of this year’s planetary activity. The action shifts to the career front with Mercury’s return to your career sector on 29th May, for what should be 14 day visit aimed at giving you the intellectually savvy edge needed to get your head in the game. Instead, Mercury won’t leave until 5th August and with the Sun here from 21st June to 2nd July, a second New Moon on 21st July and Venus here from 8th August to 6th September, career developments will continue to unfold during the middle months of the year.
