Pandora Astrology Monthly Forecast

Long-Term Shifts in 2020

2020 began 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. 

During 2020, Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter will be in Capricorn, while Uranus travels through Taurus, Neptune through Pisces and Chiron through Aries. This video explains what these long-tern “planetary eras” mean: Planetary Eras: Outer Planets In Signs In 2020.

Planetary Stations and Retrogrades This Month

Jupiter Sextiles Neptune: Ethics Plus Compassion Equals Joy

During 2020, Jupiter (representing organized religion and the morals that spring from it) and Neptune (representing spirituality and the compassion that springs from it) meet up in 3 harmonious sextiles as if to remind us that when your compassion and your morals line up, you can more easily find bliss, happiness and faith. Those who feel this quality of faith and who live their faith in a way that encompasses ALL living things in a circle of love and compassion will enjoy this transit greatly. And those who have struggled to line their beliefs up with what they feel may find grace this year. In this video, Jamie and Julia talk about how long this lasts and how to handle it for best results in your life.

Monthly Astrology Forecast: Mercury Watch

Mercury begins February moving in a forward direction, which is always helpful for work on projects of all kinds, especially writing projects. But you’ll want to aim to finish bigger projects during the first half of February because a Mercury retrograde period is coming on the 16th. Begin winding things down as early as February 10th  while Mercury slows and prepares to turn retrograde. That way you’ll be alert for whatever the upcoming Mercury retrograde period throws at you. This one’s going to happen in Pisces so you may experience confusion or brain fog during it—and that will be intensified during the Pisces New Moon of the 23rd. See Lunations section below for the video, where we discuss Mercury Retrograde and the New Moon together.

Monthly Astrology Forecast: Seasons

February begins with the Airy Fixed sign of Aquarius, a social, chatty sign.  Aquarius is the season associated with the retreat of the dark and the increase of the light: many ancient holidays involving candle-lighting happen in this month.  Aquarius is consummately social, a networker, and loves to spread himself thin among all his many friendships. In Aquarius, we are drawn to participate in groups with whom we feel like-minded or a sense of kinship. Individuals with a strong Aquarian side often value friendship above all else. This year Aquarius runs from January 19th through February 18th.

On February 18th, Pisces begins. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. It is a sign of endings, representing the ocean of all being into which we dissolve and from which we are reborn. It’s hard to talk about Pisces without getting mystical or misty-eyed. Pisceans are the dreamers, the visionaries and artists of the zodiac.  Uncomfortable in the material world, your friendly neighborhood child of Neptune would rather swim in the waters of his or her own imagination. And who can blame them? It is a much nicer place to be.  

If your birthday is coming, you’ll want your annual birthday reading (called a “Solar Return” reading) to happen in the month before your birthday–because your birthday is your Personal New Year. It’s the best time for setting resolutions, intentions and new life-directions. Get yourself in alignment with what your Greater Self wants for you this year, beginning with knowing what the plan is. 

Monthly Astrology Forecast: Lunations

Each lunation (new or full moon) has a feeling-state that human beings will be prone to under it, a general mood.

“Relationship Dilemmas–To Assert Or Negotiate?”
Full Moon at 20º Leo on February 8, 2020

A Full Moon is already a dynamic interplay of two opposing forces—and how much more so when a few relationship-themed planets are involved. Juno is here to help balance the self-absorption of Leo with the cool remove of Aquarius, and Mars pitches in as well. The only stressor here is a square from Vesta, who represents “The Affair.” She and Juno “the Spouse” don’t share the same values. In this video find out how these themes may play out under Feburary’ s Full Moon in Leo.

Your February horoscope video will tell you more about how this Full Moon fits with the upcoming Juno Retrograde period—and how together they allow you to renegotiate the terms of your relationships in the ways that matter the most to you. When checking your horoscope, always check your Rising sign first, then your Sun sign. Your Rising sign’s horoscope will generally work better.

“Imagination Fuels Ambition and Innovation”
New Moon at 4º Pisces on February 23, 2020 

When a Mercury Retrograde in Pisces (one of Mercury’s LEAST favorite places to be) happens during a New Moon in Pisces the result is heightened imagination which can be wonderfully creative, but it can also result in confusion and feeling like you’re stuck waiting for something and you have no idea how soon it will be ready. A recipe for frustration, right? In this video, Jamie and Julia show you how to handle this Moon in a strategic way and how to plant seeds in your imagination that can grow into great ideas in the future. Your February horoscope will tell you how this applies to your sign (check your Rising sign’s horoscope first, then your Sun sign).
