Welcome to 2020, Scorpio!
As in recent years, much of 2020 will direct your attention toward communication and relationships with siblings and cousins. You'll also focus on a bit of travel.
Down the road, you'll shift from taking trips toward reviewing finances. Read on for your guide to 2020.
Ever since Pluto, your ruling planet, moved into Capricorn (your third house) in 2008, you've had to focus on transforming how and what you communicate. It's also possible you've traveled more and spent more time on issues related to brothers and sisters (and perhaps close cousins or people who feel like sibs). Work in these areas intensified at the end of 2018, when Saturn moved into Capricorn, too.
Jupiter entered the Capricorn picture in late 2019 and will stay in Capricorn until December 2020. As this year begins, you also have the Sun and Mercury in this house, and together these planets are pushing you to up your game. The latest entrants also are asking you to lighten up a little, find the light in all the hard work, and remember to talk about life's joys even when you're ultra busy.
Capricorn is serious energy that wants you to mature. Whether it's writing, talking, or even body language, it's time for you to grow into the responsible adult you must become in this lifetime. Also, it's your turn to become a bit of an elder in your family, serving as an example for siblings and cousins (and perhaps taking on extra responsibilities to help them out).
If you travel this year, it may be for business, and you will need to be at your best and most distinguished. Fortunately, years of improving communications have prepared you to step up. In between all the serious moments, remember to laugh - Capricorn has a dry wit, and you can tap that talent now, thanks to all the Capricorn tutoring the planets have given you!
Upping the pressure regarding travel and communications are the Moon's nodes, which have occupied Cancer and Capricorn since late 2018. The nodes indicate where we experience eclipses, and you've endured some big ones recently that brought closure (lunar eclipses) and fresh starts (solar eclipses).
In early May, the nodes will relocate to Gemini and Sagittarius, your two money houses. All your new communication prowess will help you negotiate better deals in credit, mortgage and loan interest, and alimony or child support. Also, you'll be a whiz at asking for more money at work or creating a more visionary personal budget. This period favors inheritance and updating wills and beneficiary designations, so work on these tasks.
Uranus entered Taurus, your seventh house of marriage and business partnerships, in 2018, where it will stay until 2025. If you're married, you may see your sweetheart undergo some quirky or unexpected changes. Otherwise, you could see sudden shifts with a business partner or an important advisor such as your agent or tax preparer.
2020's other big news: both Venus and Mars, which go retrograde the least, will do so. Venus will appear to move backwards in Gemini, your eighth house of intimacy (and money) in May and June, and Mars will loop backwards in Aries, your work and health house, from September through November.
Physical pleasure, one of your favorite pastimes, may ebb while Venus takes a break from radiating charm, love, and relationship savvy. The same may happen with Mars in retrograde because this planet's usual passion will be on hold or be working underground, deeply within our psyches. Also, money matters may come to a halt temporarily, and it may be difficult to get things done at the office. You can help yourself and others by exercising leadership: instead of fighting these energies, flow with them by slowing down, expecting less of yourself and others, and taking a vacation. You'll be glad of the break, and your work (and love life) will shine all the more afterward.
