Forecast for January 2020
Long-Term Shifts in 2020
2020 begins with a very difficult planetary conjunction that sets the tone of the year: Saturn Conjuncts Pluto in January of 2020. Saturn and Pluto connect about every 35 years and when they do, individuals, societies and nations go through massive transformation. The keyword for this transit is “oppression.” As the year continues, Jupiter, newly in Capricorn, begins moving in and out of a conjunction with Pluto. Jupiter sometimes brings hope and confidence, making things better–but other times it just blows things up bigger and makes them visible when before they were hidden. Hopefully this will bring a spark of positivity and shine some light into dark places. During 2020 Jupiter will also be dancing in a harmonious sextile with Neptune, fostering dreams and ideals and growing them further, adding to a growing feeling of hope and possibility. As the year ends, Jupiter leaves Pluto behind and also exits Capricorn. Upon entering Aquarius in December 2020, Jupiter conjuncts Saturn, a connection that suggests wisdom from experience and an ability to make promises only in line with what you know you can deliver. And that may be the lesson this year.
