At what age does real life begin?
2020 is a transitional year between the past you leave behind and the future you are called upon to give shape to. You will do so shall you decide to associate with people who see the world from a completely new perspective. On the one hand, you must complete the end of the cycle which started in 2019 by shutting the door behind you as you leave a house in which you spent many years. There is no room for emotionalism because it is now necessary to be able to implement the lessons you have taken so as to build a new reality. Perhaps you have a family and you take distance from the living pattern you were trained in when you were younger. Perhaps you build on your career based on yourself and far from a company model you used to follow all these years. Perhaps you break free from a relationship or collaboration because you think you are oppressed and you miss the chance to express yourself. Following summer, you are likely ready to cancel everything mentioned above so as to return to a past which has scarred your heart or brain. You have forgotten, though, how many battles you gave against it.
What matters, mainly as from the second semester of the year on, is that you can speak the same language with people you choose to surround you. If you must do some intensive learning so as to have the same foundations for communication, dare to do so without shame. If you simply choose to associate with young people so as to refuse the fact that you grow older, remember that the difference between you and your surroundings will be soon visible. It is a pity to want to live a life alien to the norms of your body and mind. You wish to go against time but it is impossible and you will realise it when you start fighting with yourself between September-November 2020.
Jupiter in Capricorn almost throughout 2020 -in particular, until 19 December when it enters Aquarius- indicates that this is a year when you seek to make a big profit on career so as to change your public image. Jupiter in Capricorn offers you the opportunity for professional growth through a promotion which makes you a leader with the responsibility though to lead a group of people to success. Perhaps you even move somewhere far from your existing position and your ability to tune in to places, which are far from your way of thinking and expression, is put to the test. Perhaps you dare to proceed with a professional step of your own that you have been planning for years. You are obliged, however, to plan a lot of things by yourself based on a specific action plan.
Jupiter in Capricorn might also bring about developments on the personal level because your status most likely changes either by making your relationship official or by breaking up a marriage in a way which seems relieving. You are called upon to second your new status and to prove that you can safely guide family members towards pretty threatening living conditions. Remember that you have the opportunity to change course if you are on a path which puts pressure on you mentally as well as emotionally so long as you have learnt by now not to be absolute and to be accompanied by the appropriate co-driver in life.
Saturn in the third decanate of Capricorn between 1/1-22/3 and 1/7-17/12 highlights the effort of the representatives born mostly on the third decanate to prove themselves and lay solid foundations for their edifice. You must confront authority figures who seem to want to impose their own way of thinking, expression and action that does not correspond to your own “wants” and “cans”. There may be definitive rifts which means that a relationship or collaboration comes to a close. Or you might be patient and try to learn from this experience. The first option obviously seems easier because you are one of these people who prefer to have a fight rather than be under pressure. The price of this choice is not that easy because you are called upon to take on an important share of responsibility in what will take place and this could have an impact not only on you but also on people of your close environment. If you choose to stay and work hard so as to make things smoother in a relationship or collaboration which struggles to survive, you will raise your self-esteem regardless of the outcome. You will mature in a short period of time and you will realise that leadership does not only consist of being at the helm of an effort but also of taking on responsibilities which others refuse. Saturn in Capricorn is extremely fair so long as you prove you are aware of your boundaries, you respect others, and you invest in the foundations and not the image of new creations.
Saturn in Aquarius between 22/3-1/7 is a first shock regarding the screening out of your friends because you have realised that you have changed and as a result, you do not have much in common with people you were used to being surrounded with. During this screening out, you will also meet people who will stay in your life in the long run so long as you are honest with them. You understand that time is precious and as a result, you are not willing to waste it in acquaintances and activities that have no future. Perhaps your views are absolute but you have taken your lessons and you cannot be the same person whom your social circle used to know.
The first eclipse takes place on 10 January and it is a Lunar one at 20 degrees Cancer in opposition to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. It affects the representatives born on the last days of the second decanate and the first days of the third. This eclipse might bring the chapter of a relationship or collaboration to a close, and might bring about a rather absolute end. You are called upon to realise that you must bid farewell even if it is scary because it could also be relieving. Your role in the family or professional environment will change and you must be ready to respond to the new facts which indicate the transition from one period to another. The next Lunar eclipse at 15 degrees Sagittarius on 5 June in opposition to retrograde Venus in Gemini and in square with Mars and Neptune in Pisces forces you to look for a different way of expression and thinking in view of an occasion which you cannot lead in your desired direction. Remember that you might postpone a trip, redefine a professional plan, or have doubts about a relationship because things do not necessarily correspond to what you see. You had better avoid growing enthusiastic with a new prospect of amorous or professional background. Be doubtful.
The Solar eclipse at 0 degree Cancer on 21 June in quincunx with Saturn in Aquarius indicates that it is time you left an unfriendly environment in which you cannot find your safe shelter. Perhaps you are afraid to spread your wings for the new reality because you feel like a stranger among strangers but it is time you dared to meet new people. You are in a dilemma regarding your next professional steps and you have to admit that you are older. You seem ready to free yourself from a house or an office which bears a sign of rental or selling to the next tenant. The next Lunar eclipse at 13 degrees Capricorn on 5 July in opposition to retrograde Mercury in Cancer and in square with Chiron in your sign seems to bring the wound of taking decisions which concern other people, too, in your life to the surface. Perhaps you hesitate leaving behind somebody or a life which comes to a close and you might not be able to make announcements which you know will hurt close people. Perhaps you are not satisfied with the new prospects that open up regarding your home or work and as a result, you see obstacles where others see opportunities. You must measure yourself against your insecurities and leave obstacles, which you think are raised by third parties and are reasons for whining, by the wayside.
The last set of eclipses begins with the Lunar eclipse at 8 degrees Gemini on 30 November in quincunx with Venus in Scorpio. You need to decide whether you dare to look at the future or be chained to the past. The opportunity for a professional change does not correspond to the security of remuneration, thus you are in a dilemma. A new acquaintance does not seem strong enough to overshadow your existing relationship because the comfort zone of today is an important factor of cowardice in view of fresh opportunities. The Solar eclipse at 23 degrees Sagittarius on 14 December in conjunction with Mercury and in square with Neptune in Pisces should give you a boost to a new way of thinking and action. If you go on a trip, you will be refreshed and get in touch with new ways of thinking. At the same time, you say you are ready to shut the door of today behind you. If you sign the contract of your new life, read the small print because there are conditions you do not fully understand and may be traps for the trajectory you choose to follow.
The North Node will be in Cancer (and the South Node in Capricorn respectively) until 5 May 2020 and it will have an impact mostly on the representatives born on the first decanate of your sign. You are called upon to make your final moves regarding the balance between home/work, family/career, and inner world/public image. You are called upon to lay safe and solid foundations in that area of your life which is under transformation and to not be scared to terminate certain cycles which lay heavy on your shoulders. Perhaps you realise that it is time you focused on family and you took distance from your career because the fulfilment you feel when you return home among your beloved ones or when you spend time with somebody you make plans for your common future is incomparable to anything else.
The Moon’s Nodes enter the axis of Gemini/Sagittarius on 5 May (the North Node in Gemini and the South Node in Sagittarius) and seems to lighten things up and to help you breathe. A new period begins when you have the opportunity to cope with educational topics so as to approach the worldview of young people and the way of expression of people who make you feel younger. A period of travels might begin which may speed up things in your professional life since you will be able to broaden the circle of your acquaintances and to promote your ideas. Finally, remember that it is maybe time you discussed the prospect of moving to a place which throbs with life, namely far from a place which is heavy for you heart and mind.
