For the Year 2020
- Overview -
The time is now, Sag. With Mars in your sign at the start of 2020 (January 3-February 16), you're ready to step more fully into your personal power.
But to truly seize the moment, you'll need to let go of whatever's weighing you down. The south node enters your sign on May 5, offering major opportunities to clear past karma and break unconscious patterns preventing you from showing up as your best self. Like that old habit of taking yourself too seriously: The north node in your opposite sign, Gemini, teaches you to lighten up, admit your mistakes, and be more open to changing your mind.
Two eclipses in your sign (lunar June 5, solar December 14) also support you in releasing lower-vibe expressions of your sign's energy and consciously cultivating higher ones such as honesty, generosity, positivity, and broadmindedness.
With your ruling planet Jupiter in Capricorn for most of the year, you've got the discipline to apply yourself to this important task. By setting and achieving meaningful goals for your personal growth, you're also building greater self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love.
Jupiter aligns with Pluto three times this year (April 4, June 29, November 12), bringing you back to basics with renewed enthusiasm for your most essential core values. Empathy, compassion, and altruism are some of your highest ideals—and Jupiter's sextile with Neptune in Pisces (exact February 20, July 27, and October 12) helps you put them into practice.
After all, Sag, your actions don't just affect you—they affect everyone you interact with (and even some you don't). And when Jupiter enters socially conscious Aquarius in December and makes his Great Conjunction with Saturn on the twenty-first, you're invited to step up your game and take on a whole new level of responsibility… ready or not!
You can start by taking responsibility for the energy you're giving out. As disruptive Uranus continues his transit of Taurus, it can be challenging to stay grounded and centered—but it's more important than ever. Keep showing up for yourself by nurturing body, mind, and spirit. That way, Sag, you'll be able to keep showing up for others.
- Romance & Love -
With the north node in your opposite sign of Gemini for most of the year, relationships (romantic, platonic, and in-between) teach you your biggest life lessons in 2020. Significant others teach you a lot by mirroring back your energy and behavior—but believe it or not, Sag, it's not all about you.
Gemini's greatest lesson is to take interest in other people—not just as reflections of yourself, but as fascinating individuals in their own right. Whether they're a new crush or a long-term love, there's always more to discover about them… if you're paying attention.
Venus graces Gemini with her presence for four months this year (April 3-August 7, retrograde May 12-June 24), drawing you together with loved ones more often for laughter and conversation. With the love goddess herself in this fun, flirtatious sign, novelty and variety are your heart's desire. So if you're seeing someone new during this transit, don't be in such a rush to lock things down—keep it light, fun, and flexible. And if you're already in a serious relationship, make plenty of time for date nights and whimsical adventures.
With Mars in Aries for the second half of the year (beginning June 27), you've got energy and libido to spare! Go ahead and make the first move, but try not to come on too strong, especially while Mars is retrograde (September 9-November 13). After all, Sag, confidence can be a major turn on—but only when the object of your desire feels like their desires matter too.
You're not usually the possessive or controlling type. But this year's conjunctions between your ruling planet Jupiter and power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn (April 4, June 29, and November 12) have the potential to bring out your jealous streak, especially if you have any underlying insecurities about a relationship.
The best thing you can do is talk it out, perhaps during Mercury's extended stay in Cancer (May 28-August 4, retrograde June 17-July 12). Don't be afraid to show your softer side—vulnerability is a strength, and sensitivity is sexy!
- Career & Finance -
Time to get real, Sag.
If you've been living beyond your means (blame it on Jupiter being in your sign for most of 2019!), the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12 brings you solidly back down to earth. It's time to get serious and take charge of your finances—by doing so, you'll be empowering yourself to achieve more of your personal goals.
Whether it's a new home, a dream vacation, or your own business, you've got big dreams this year! And with your ruling planet Jupiter's more extravagant impulses reined in by frugal Capricorn, you've got the self-control to save up for them. Just be realistic about your price range—with Jupiter sextile Neptune in Pisces (February 20, July 27, and October 12), it can be tempting to spend money you don't really have.
Discipline promises rewards with the Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions (exact in April, June, and November). Still, some fears of scarcity may surface—especially around the June 29 conjunction and July 4 Capricorn lunar eclipse.
After all, Sag, Uranus in Taurus is making money matters unpredictable for everyone. And with this transit happening in your house of work, it can be especially challenging for you. But on the bright side, Uranus' disruptions are sure to keep things interesting on the job front!
From late August through November, a series of earth trines help you find solid ground. The sun, Mercury, and Venus in Virgo keep you focused on your goals with humility and integrity. Their harmonious trines to innovative Uranus help you reinvent your work habits for greater efficiency and job satisfaction. And trines with Capricorn power players Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn bolster your faith, willpower, and endurance. Trust that even if the material rewards seem slow to arrive, Sag, you're definitely on the right track for success.
