Jupiter will shine brightly from Aquarius, your career sector, the sign it enters January 5. You’ll reap the benefits of this expansive planet, which can trigger lucky breaks and have you among the favored few. Although it might be tempting to sit back and enjoy this bountiful career ride, Jupiter’s other face will soon begin to nudge you to do more. The future beckons. Jupiter is your portal. Make the most of it; twelve years will pass before Jupiter again visits this sign.
As the year unfolds and Jupiter draws closer to Neptune, which entered Aquarius in 1995, you’ll begin to see many possibilities. In fact, the first subtle hints of what your future could hold will occur in February. Take note of your career experiences that month and, more importantly, your idle thoughts and dreams: You’ll find hints in what drifts through your mind as the stage is set for what’s to come later in the year.
Neptune’s influence is complex, more subtle and difficult to define than Jupiter. Both are planets of hope, faith, and spirituality—concepts somewhat foreign to your down’to-earth sign. Take a risk this year and tune in to their message. Both planets will encourage you to look beyond what is to what might be and to believe in yourself and the many possibilities open to you in the universe.
Jupiter promises a lot; it often delivers, but sometimes it doesn’t. Neptune masks reality with illusion. But it also inspires. Getting only the best of this duo can thus be a challenge. That’s okay. You have a decided advantage: your innate practicality. Rely on it to balance and weigh the realities of your career prospects against your hopes and wishes for more.
Saturn will enter Libra, your solar sixth house of daily work, October 29. Saturn in this life sector indicates two-and-a-half years of hard work with, unfortunately, scant recognition. Although Jupiter will to some extent offset this influence this year, its influence will begin to wane as Saturn’s increases.
Enter Pluto, planet of transformation—also defined as major change. This tiny planet does everything on a grand scale, but its roots run deep and its influence is slow and steady, eroding the past to make way for the future. That’s familiar energy to you, and with Pluto in Capricorn, a fellow earth sign and your solar ninth house of knowledge, you can more easily handle the changes in your world even if you can’t control them to the extent you wish.
Saturn in Libra will square off with Pluto during the final two months of the year to push you to step outside your current life and take action. But this duo also indicates frustration in moving forward. You’ll get farther and faster if you allow events to unfold at their own pace and accept that much of it will be out of your control.
The bottom line? The planetary scenario may develop like this as 2020 progresses: Your ambition will come alive, prompting you to aim for bigger and better as Jupiter and Neptune work their magic. And you may have some initial success and even earn a promotion, but the wind will shift later in the year. Then you could be disappointed to discover that education or training separate you from your goal. You might also become disillusioned with your current career path and decide to return to school to pursue your new dream. Even if your career life is on an even keel, you should consider broadening your knowledge, whether you gain practical skills, pursue a degree, or explore yourself—your motivations, desires, and reason for being—and resolve any issues that hold you back.
Saturn in Virgo (through October 28) and Uranus in Pisces, your solar fifth/eleventh house axis, will continue to influence your social life and your love life, a trend that began in late October of the last year.
If you’re involved in a major group activity such as a club or organization, or even a team project at work, you can expect last year’s events to reach a turning point in February and to conclude in September, the months when this planetary alignment will be at its peak. Be prepared, however, for the unexpected and for carefully laid plans to suddenly switch direction in February. If this is career-related, it could trigger initial thoughts about moving on that come full circle this fall.
Saturn may have restricted your love life and your social life since it entered Virgo two years ago. But it’s equally possible that the emphasis has been on quality rather than quantity. You can expect the pattern to be much the same through the end of October when Saturn enters Libra. If you’re in a serious dating relationship, or enter one, it might not have the pizzazz of previous liaisons, but it will feel stable and solid, bringing you much pleasure and a feeling of security. If, however, things aren’t working out as you hoped they would, September’s Saturn/Uranus alignment could prompt you to cut ties, possibly because you see someone more’exciting on the horizon. Love-at-first-sight with a soul mate is not out of the question.
You’ll want to be especially cautious about investments and putting funds at risk. Maintain your conservative financial attitude and don’t let the lure of high profits tempt you. Chances are, you’ll end up wiser but poorer.
If you’re a parent, especially of teens, be aware of what your children are doing, get involved in their activities, and get to know their friends even if your kids think you’re meddling. Whatever age your children are, they’ll benefit from your wisdom, guidance, care, and concern.
