Monthly astrological forecasts and horoscopes!
2020 starts out with an earth-heavy tilt in the heavenly bodies but fear not – there will be room to breathe when a few of these bad boys shift into Aquarius. Read on, astro-fiends!
January kicks off with the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn – which means we’re starting off the year on a serious note. This goal-oriented combo puts the eyes on the prize and gives the gumption to get it too. Start this month strategizing your big vision and then get on it until you see the top of the mountain.
Remember: this is a go-getter vibe. If you’re sitting around hoping that the Universe is going to deliver you the goods without doing any work, you’ll be in for a rude surprise. You must do your part, yo.
Mars zooms into Sagittarius on the 3rd, lighting a million fires under a million asses. This adds rocket fuel to the engine, making it possible to zip past obstacles with enthusiasm. Passion is accelerated, helping to keep the interest going as the goal looms. This transit favors bold action and a “can-do” attitude. It’s also divine for adventures of all sorts. If you’re traveling to somewhere new in January, you might discover something exciting!
The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer on the 10th is perfect for letting go of family drama, clearing away ancestral patterns, and cleaning your house. Tidy up your environment – and your consciousness. Redefine what home and family mean to you. If you have mother issues, this might be the ideal time to get into therapy and work that shit out.
Also on the 10th: Uranus stations direct. If you’ve been trying to make a change, especially in the financial realm, you may have felt stuck the past few months. Or you may have been resisting making a change (why leave the comfort zone?). The energy has been building and now? It’s like a volcano! Expect a few eruptions, but trust that they will help you to shake out of complacency. This could bring the wake-up call that finally helps you to make better financial decisions.
Heads up: Saturn is conjunct Pluto on the 12th. This is important stuff! Here’s what I wrote in The Tarot Lady’s Ultra-Deluxe Superfly Astrology Guide for 2020: “This aspect only comes around about once every 34 years, so listen up! Saturn and Pluto are conjunct on January 12th at 11:59 AM EST in the sign of Capricorn. Saturn is the planet of hard work and limitations, while Pluto favors destruction and regeneration.
In Capricorn, this indicates a time when the traditions and institutions we’ve counted on go through a significant shift. Whether that’s for better will remain to be seen but do know that there may be tremendous changes happening around issues of power, business, and politics.
The old way is beginning to fall apart, and new leaders are about to take power. Shake-ups in business and government will bring necessary wake-up calls. Ecological and economic issues may be at the forefront as we go into a new election.
So what does that mean for us personally? Transformation time is at hand. If you’re not liking the way your world (or the world) is looking, take responsibility. You can make a change – and a difference. Let this Saturn Pluto conjunction be your nudge to get moving on the work that needs to be done.”
Romance gets an upgrade when Venus drifts into emotional Pisces on the 13th. This is a gushy, loving, and highly sensitive transit, which means it’s possible to get more lovin’. Unlike the Venus in Aquarius vibe of the past few weeks, feelings are IN. Express your heart. Write love poems. Hold hands. Make time for date nights! Single? Go with the flow and trust your instincts. If that hottie starts sending you some come on vibes, there might be something to investigate.
Mercury in Aquarius on the 16th favors high tech, texting, brainy conversations, and lots of social activities with your besties. Even if the weather sucks, this is a sweet spot to gather your buddies for some fun indoor activities. This transit favors innovation and future-thinking too. Time to look ahead and think outside the box!
The Sun will be in Aquarius on the 20th, making the weeks that follow most excellent for trying new things, seeking knowledge, and letting your freak flag fly! Why be like the rest of ’em when you can do things your own way? After weeks of cautious Capricorn vibes, you can let loose and be as weird as you want.
The New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th is a sweet spot for goal-setting, joining new groups, taking on the status quo, and progressive ideas. No more playing it safe. Let your inner rebel lead the way as you carve out your bold, exciting future.

Social activities are also keeping you on the go, making it hard to hibernate (your favorite mode this time of year). In other words: you’re mingling – and getting clear on which friends have your back. A few situations may arise that challenge your alliances but fear not – this will also help you to clear out the renegades.

Venus will be in your sign starting on the 13th, giving you the ability to attract what you want with ease. Your charm will open doors at work – and in love. This is followed by Mercury and the Sun settling down in your 12th house of rest beginning on the 16th. This means: your longed-for hibernation starts at last! You’ll have a few weeks to hunker down and get introspective. The New Moon on the 24th brings a breakthrough. Clarity around an issue comes at last, giving you the fortitude to make changes inside and out. In a way, you’re in the cocoon. Come the end of February, you’re ready to bust out and spread your wings.
