There are many things that will make 2020 a remarkable year in history. This will be the start of a New Decade. It begins with a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer and the long-awaited conjunction between Saturn and Pluto, which is something that only occurs approximately every 35-40 years. The focus is currently in the sign of Capricorn, and those with planets in Cancer and Capricorn have been undergoing either great turmoil or triumph in their lives during the past year into the new one. In some cases it’s a combination of both.
With the Saturn-Pluto influence there is a lot of deconstruction that must take place before reconstruction and new beginnings take effect. This is what is causing so much discomfort and anxiety for many of us. No doubt these are trying times and it has been taking everything in our tool kit to survive the stress.
Usually there are only four to five eclipses per year. There are a total of six eclipses that will take place in the year ahead. To underline and put all of this into perspective, what is taking place right now astrologically is extraordinary and indicates significant life shifts for everyone on this planet.
On March 21st Saturn enters Aquarius. It will go Retrograde on May 11th going backward into Capricorn on July 1st until September 29th and then it will reenter Aquarius on December 17th. Those with planets in Leo or Aquarius will begin to strongly experience the influence of Saturn in their lives, which could assist in grounding visions into reality, maturation and setting appropriate boundaries. The tests of being able to handle growing responsibilities will come into play as well.
One of the most profound shifts to take place will be on December 21st of 2020 when the Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn takes places in the sign of Aquarius. In addition to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction this one heralds social upheavals along with massive changes in government and global economy.
The current transit of Jupiter through Capricorn is a turning point in consciousness and with it many of the old ways of doing things are coming to completion. This is what prompted the long article Jupiter in Capricorn: End of an Epoch and Turning Point to a New Life. When Jupiter goes Retrograde from May 14th until September 13th and during this time it could become extra important to tap into the resourceful nature of Capricorn.
Venus going Retrograde in Gemini in May and Mars going Retrograde in Aries in September are also going to be tests of staying power, patience and determination. We will have many opportunities throughout the year to review relationships to kinsfolk and life goals in order to make necessary changes.
Some good news is that 2020 will be a 4 year in numerology helping to bring many aspects of life into greater focus, cohesiveness, organization and stability. The number four is complimentary to the strong Saturnian vibration which supports structure and things of the material world.
