Happy 2020, Libra!
Much of your year will focus on home and family, and what you experience is apt to affect nearly every area of your life, from your personality to career to important one on one relationships.
Although 2020 may get busy, you'll have your chances for good times. Read on for your guide to 2020.
Since late 2008, when Pluto moved into Capricorn (your fourth house of home), you've seen changes in your family that have demanded so much from you, Libra. Saturn added more pressure when it entered Capricorn in late 2018. These planets will remain here in 2020. Also, Jupiter entered Capricorn in late 2019, and as the year begins you also have the Sun and Mercury energizing this house.
You may have had to move, or perhaps older relatives needed your help (or had to move in with you). All that affected your career because you had less time to focus on professional ambitions. It also may have made you seem more serious, and if you're married, your partner may have had just as many duties as you - either supporting the family or helping you help others.
The eclipses we experience every five and half months have occurred in your home and career houses because the Moon's nodes have been in Cancer and Capricorn since late 2018. When they touch sensitive points of your chart, solar and lunar eclipses bring great changes through necessary endings and exciting beginnings.
Congratulations to you for weathering all this change!
Light is appearing on your horizon because of Jupiter's more jolly demeanor, which will leaven your home and family area until December 2020. More good news: the eclipses will shift away from your home and career when the Moon's nodes slip into Gemini and Sagittarius. There, they'll bring new developments such as travel, publishing and media opportunities, greater interest in higher education or philosophy, and relationship adjustments with siblings.
Money may arrive to support more travel than you've been able to enjoy in many years. Uranus, the great awakener and bringer of sudden changes, moved into Taurus in 2018 and will stay there until 2025. Uranus in Taurus highlights your eighth house of shared finances.
That means greater focus on credit, mortgages and other debt, insurance, and wills and inheritances. This house also oversees money you receive in a lump sum, such as bonus payouts and cash from licensing or commissions. Uranus could bring dramatic shifts (including possible windfalls - or at least more money than you've seen in a while!). Follow your intuition toward new sources of revenue, especially if you're an artist or have other talents that you could monetize.
One of 2020's big stories for you, Libra, involves Venus, your ruling planet. Love planet Venus - and her beau, Mars - go retrograde the least often. When they do - as they will this year - we feel it keenly.
Venus will go retrograde during May and June in Gemini, which manages your ninth house of long trips, higher education, and all other ways you expand yourself and your world. Mars will go retrograde from September through November in Aries, which governs your seventh house of marriage and business partnerships.
With Venus retrograde, talks related to money could stall, especially if you're working on an international deal or a publishing project. Also, consider postponing travel until after June (or else go on vacation before May) because the temporary loss of Venus's charms means you may not enjoy your trip as much as you would otherwise. Love and affection will be in short supply, and you may prefer spending more time alone in meditation or on nature walks. While by yourself, muse about your values and relationships to make sure everything's balanced and fair - and get ready to change (or release) what isn't when the retrograde lifts. If you want to see people, spend time with old friends or look up people with whom you've lost touch.
As for Mars retrograde, that will happen from September through November in Aries, your seventh house of marriage. If you're dating, avoid proposing at this time, and if you're getting married, consider a wedding date when Mars - and Venus - aren't retrograde. If you're already coupled up, your partner's "get up and go" may disappear for a while, or your sweetheart may need some down time. Take this period in stride and talk to your partner about taking a restful trip while Mars is retrograde because it will help you both recharge and prepare to hit the ground running after the Venus and Mars retrogrades end.
