Predictions for 2020 – Astrology and More
“Year of the Seekers of Stability”
It is going to be quite a year. Marked by full Annular Solar Eclipses on June 21st, 2020, the day of the summer solstice (it will be quite a site in Tibet, Ethiopia, and Oman). And then again on December 14th, 2020, crossing Chile and Argentina.
On the same day as the Annular Solar Eclipse there is also a Saturn-Jupiter conjunction.
The Lunar Eclipses are January 10th (the Wolf Moon), seen in Asia, Australia, Europe, and some parts of Africa. June 5th, (the Strawberry Moon) in Asia, Africa, and Australia. July 5th, (the Thunder Moon Eclipse), in North and South American and Africa. And finally November 29-30, 2020 (the Frosty Moon Eclipse), in North and South America, East Asia and Australia.
So what does all this really mean to you? It means that the patterns of this reality are going to cause you to go on a journey. You will be seeking something.
This “Year of the Seekers” has multiple meanings for me and for this world. It means there are those that recognize that they can no longer be complacent and allow others to dictate their experience. It means that answers need to be sought internally first and foremost. You are not going to be impactful in this world without the inner connection and the stability of knowing who you are, what you are here to contribute, and the willingness to take risk.
There is a choice you will need to make this year. You can be carried along with the pyroclastic flow of the destructive forces that are manifesting to force glorious expansion of consciousness and change, or you can be procreative in allowing your old self to combust into ash and lay a fertile ground for a new you to emerge.
You are what you are seeking.
You are what others are seeking.
Everyone needs help to change some very deep and fundamental shifts in human consciousness. As human beings, we are here to grow past our comforts. When humanity is challenged, it rises to the occasion. I believe that the goodness in each and every heart is going to be essential in what is going to be co-created.
But all great creation begins with destruction. What that is going to look like, is exactly what will be needed to ignite the lethargy within souls and bring them towards the journey being offered.
Earth is our playground. It is our stewardship. It is our responsibility to care for and allow it to nurture ourselves and future generations. So many things will have to change. For some that may feel very destructive and disruptive to the habits that have long existed. We are being asked to become awake and aware enough to see that we are having a negative impact on our world. It takes just a momentary shift of perception to change an entire culture of habits and prejudices.
It is no different than the whalers that killed whales for their living and believed it was their right and livelihood. But once the world heard the whale songs, that moment changed forever our perception of whales and they became something of wonder. Those same whalers eventually became the tourist whale watching boat captains. And now they have passed down the wisdom from generations into a new form of respect and honor for the whales and our oceans.
A Temporary Dive into the Numerology for 2020
The year 2020 is the Number 4, one of the Mastery Numbers that asks for us to find peace and balance within our own lives, and then extend that desire for respect and balance in the outer world also. I believe that the number 4, are the four pillars that hold the roofs up in homes. I believe those pillars are; Love, Compassion, Respect, and Honor. Without those 4 pillars solidly honored within, stability is shoddy at best and unstable at worst.
While stability seems to be the key, what makes the number 4 unique is the flexibility that is inherent in this number. Flexibility requires intelligence combined with creative expression. The balance of the right and left hemispheres. Both need to be honored and respected.
Do you want to be able to master 2020?
Then you will need to find a way to be fully in the “now”. That is what being human is all about in this world. You are here to embody higher level of love in the present moment and to let go of the fear.
Astrologically, we continue the dance of the eclipses in the Cancer-Capricorn area. You are being asked to manifest your creations into the physical world. Those that are unconsciously creating, may not be happy with what their chaotic mind decided to create. You have a doorway to initiate a new life without carrying the old burdens of your past.
Through the power of Neptune in Pisces, the force of continuous pounding of the stormy waters, gives you the opportunity to let go and dissolve away the old. Karmic, genetic wounds that you have been dealing with and carrying forward, now have the opportunity to be offerings and fuel to the destructive powers that are being unleashed, that will ultimately manifest something very new. Your ego self is going to become heavier and heavier until you have to put it down and step into the freedom of your authentic expression.
The Seekers of Stability are being called to awaken and to step forth into a time of planetary rehabilitation. The extreme swings of polarity are finally breaking down the fabrics of the old reality. That will finally lead us back towards understanding how the entanglement of power and egos can be so dangerous and destructive.
This entire year is not one single activation but a series of powerfully intense transformations. Wholeness comes at a cost. You will have to pay the karmic toll to the Universal Trolls.
What is happening is a major trajectory turn of a planet gone rogue. It will take a generation of determined, global, sacrificing effort to shift this world back to a healthy center where everyone belongs and everyone is essential to the health and well-being of this planet.
Let’s take a look at the major planetary aspects impacting this year.
January 8th, 2020 – Jupiter opposition to the True Node
Setting the stage for the coming year, this aspect gives extra juice to liberating yourself from your past. While it is normal to bring experiences from our past into the future, there is a time to heal old emotional wounds by descending into the familiar karmic lineage of this body. That is because even once you heal your own wounds, you recognize that you are carrying forward the wounds of your ancestors. Your inner work is not just for your own awakening but for the conscious gift that you choose to give for the freedom and awakening of your genetic line.
The Full Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Cancer, January 10th.
On this day, I intend to do a ceremony to release all my ancestors from their own karmic choices by forgiving and loving them for the gifts, lessons, wisdom, and challenges that they have offered for this moment of awakening. I have learned that when I understand and awaken to my own reasons that I chose this family, these genetics, these circumstances, then everything makes sense and it all becomes a perfect journey.
The Big One – The Saturn Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn – January 12th.
This is a powerful aspect that hits the United States chart and Donald Trump’s chart. The fact that they hit on the same day is something I find more than interesting. What that will look like is anyone’s guess. But what we do know is that Saturn is like Darth Vader and Pluto is like the Grim Reaper. Those two powerful planets combining forces in the darkest sign of Capricorn just does not look good. Then when you add in the fact that Jupiter (Zeus) with his lightning bolts is also there and they all square Mars in Aries. It looks like a big fight of some sort. This will be a moment when the darkness takes over and will force change on everyone. All this energy focused in Capricorn (an earth sign) forces everyone to get very real, very quickly. No more games. The urgency is palpable. The consequences of so much hate and separation will become crystal clear. War seems on the horizon. This is the beginning of something much bigger that will continue to unfold throughout the year.
Saturn in Aquarius – Between March 22nd and July 1st. Then again from the 17th of December into 2021.
Saturn wants to organize and calls your soul to its higher calling and duty. You will have to choose self-sufficiency and form a new and more balanced life.
Venus Retrograde in Gemini – May 13th-June 25th.
Family was never so important as now. While the universe is always moving forward so the retrograde is an internal perception based on what we see and feel, this makes us look at our relationships with ourselves and others. There are keys to maintaining a sense of balance in a chaotic world. You are in a zone where so much is new and you may not know what to do. But you know that you need to come together and practice unconditional love and know that everyone has a personality that they have to navigate and you have to allow them to feel loved while they navigate it.
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius – June 5th, 2020. And a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 14th, 2020
Finally, there is a small shift out of the Cancer-Capricorn Eclipse cycle. Sagittarius energy is very different. Because of a square aspect to Mars and in opposition to Venus, it has desires to bring stability and control over the chaotic emotions that keep happening. Be aware to not operate in anger in your relationships at this time. Your anger is a reflection of what your ego self wants and is not getting. We get angry when we cannot control something. What you perceive as directed strength when it is externalized becomes distorted and potentially harmful to others. Embrace the pain of the loss that you are feeling. Don’t hide from the truth of what is happening right in that moment.
Authenticity cuts through the chaos of the ego and simplifies the things that seem a problem.
Okay, Let’s cut to the chase! This could be a doozy of an astrological hit.
The strain on love relationships can create impulsive anger. Patience is the council and looking at the other person and remembering what it is about them that you love might become essential.
This Lunar Eclipse could bring more of a danger for war on a global scale and a series of natural disasters. Watch out especially for earthquakes. Because both Mars and Venus are retrograde, know these are portents of war. When Venus rises in the morning it is an appearance of going to war.
Let us pray that better outcomes are possible.
There are so many asteroids, fixed stars, and constellations pointing things in the most terrible of positions. I expect at the very least this to be an aggressive approach to the election season.
Even if I take a look at the 5th Chinese Lunar Manson called “The Heart”, it indicates tremendous misfortune, disaster, and loss. This astrology creates an unconscionable drive to gain power over another. This can impact a large portion of mankind either through war, natural disasters, or earthquakes.
Annular Solar Eclipse on June 21, 2020 in Cancer and a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on July 5th, 2020 in Capricorn.
Remember the Great American Eclipse in August 2017? Well that powerful eclipse has nothing on these ones in June and July of 2020. That eclipse noticeably changed the country and brought a lot of natural disasters along with it. Magnify that moment in time by 10 and that is where we are headed. What is important to look at here is that there is a pattern of eclipses that is called the “Metonic Cycle. Every 19 years the eclipses tend to repeat or fall on or very near the same degrees and sign placement.
Why I bring this up is that this eclipse on June 21st and the penumbral Lunar Eclipse on July 5th, hit on the exact position of the September 11th, World Trade Center terror attacks.
Astrology is about looking at similar or same patterns and then intelligently asking the question, “What happened before? Will it happen again? And what will it look like this time around?”
For the sake of argument, let’s break this down. On Sept 11th, 2001 the solar eclipse was at 0 Degrees and 10 Minutes in the sign of Cancer. In 2020 it falls at 0 Degrees and 21 Minutes of Cancer.
On Sept 9-13, 2001 Mars passed over the 0 Degree of Cancer. Mars represents a planet of war, conflict, aggression, violence, and terror. The Moons of Mars are named (in Greek) “Phobos” and “Deimos”, which means “fear” and “panic”. Mars is a malefic planet and when it connects to an eclipse (endings/beginnings and death/rebirth), it often coincides with crisis and conflict. Mars will magnify the energy of the eclipses and not in a good way.
The Nodes of the Moon also correspond to 2001 and the both conjunct the eclipses. Indicating that events will transpire suddenly and with lots of energy.
My concern because of the timing of these events puts pressure on the Northwest, specifically the are around Seattle. Though Washington D.C. with its rising sign in Taurus will have an impact in the money, finances, and stock market. Remember, Cancer rules homes and money and with Uranus also in Taurus, disruptions in the housing markets is highly likely. Another financial crisis is looming so protect your money, retirement, pay off those credit cards, and consciously chose to cut back at the beginning of the year.
I have to take this moment to look way ahead to the eclipse on April 23rd, 2021.
This indicates a violent event that takes place that can take us into a costly war. It is at the 90 Degree angle of Mars and that is challenging the eclipses again. It can be pointing to some sort of aggressive act that will produce panic and fear on a large scale. Mars rules over war and weapons. The 90 Degree angle makes it show up as domestic types of terrorism.
But we are not done with the astrology.
There is a Mars Retrograde in Aries – September 9-November 14, 2020.
Retrogrades are an optical illusion because the planets are always in motion and always moving forward. They just appear visually to either become still or move backwards in the sky. Mars in Aries this year dominates the astrology in many ways. As such, it is going to ask us to have discipline in managing our energy. Those that are reactive and impulsive, are going to pop off and do things that they may later regret. And yet, lack of action is also not going to work. The counsel is to meditate on paths. Then after thinking it through, to take out negative impulsive behaviors that could hurt others. What is left is usually the right thing to do. Even if it does not give you the feeling of satisfaction that you believe that revenge would fulfill. Revenge is never the path or the way. You will see those that are egocentric become volatile and enraged. Such people are very dangerous in such states. Choose constructive paths rather than destructive ones.
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse – November 30th, 2020 in Gemini
This one is intense also. (I know that is not what you wanted to hear). The split in the duality is clearly visible. (Notice this is after the election.) This will give a boost of confidence and a joyful feeling of expansion. Integration is going to be the key to finding the fruition of some of your personal ideals.
Jupiter’s movement this year through Capricorn until December 18th, 2020
There is so much heaviness with all the Capricorn influences. The eclipses are in the Cancer/Capricorn alignment and then the planets, Saturn and Pluto are also in Capricorn. What is not working is clearly illuminated and visible because of the light coming off the gas giant Jupiter. There will be new strategies that are finally being considered, as we move forward. A new order is being created and balance is the key. It is going to be about mastering this world, because the horrific density happening has become a primary concern.
Jupiter in Aquarius begins December 19th, 2020 through December 28, 2021
Jupiter is in opposition to the True Node forcing us to not focus on the past but the new directions necessary for the future. It is time to build stable foundations so a new path can be constructed to a new future. There is a lot of work to be done. Decades of work now lie ahead of all of us. But at least it will feel like steps are in place to constructively go there.
The Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction on December 21st, 2020 – Winter Solstice
Believe it or not this is going to be the more important transit of the entire year. This astrological aspect has impact that is personal and collective. I expect important news around this time. Because Jupiter is finally in Aquarius, we can leave the past behind and allow for growth and expansion in new ways. Barriers have been broken down and the old feelings of frustration and impossibility are now being released to a new birthing.
My Personal Declaration of Hope – Embracing the New and Unknown
I believe that the goodness in life comes when you are willing to change.
I affirm that life has the combined intention to teach us to see beyond the obvious.
I know that conscious souls are awakening to support us in this massive turn into a place that this world longs to go into.
I feel the compassion that connects all living things.
I hear the cries of those that need universal support and love.
I am here for a reason.
I am here to help in many ways.
This is my declaration for 2020. I hope you too can find yours.
Review on the Astrology for 2020
2020 is focused on these three major power planets in Capricorn. Capricorn is all about the rules of government, systems, power plays and the old dogmatic ways that are no longer working.
Pluto is about rigid control and many hidden secrets. It is also about the karmic consequences that come from things being hidden for too long.
Jupiter wants everything out in the open, seen, illuminated and expanded.
And Saturn is all about the structures and building blocks that make up civilizations. Saturn wants to construct, build a new, and create things that stand the test of time.
Pluto wants to tear down the old.
And Jupiter wants to illuminate the things that have not been addressed.
Then when you get Neptune in Pisces mixed in with it all, the illusions and lies of this world become revealed. And that combination is not good for those that have helped put the world into such a state. There could be massive arrests of government officials and employees. Jail for most. Treason (after all) is a huge offense, punishable by death in the old days.
What makes this year one to remember is that the masses can collapse into forms of hysteria and confusion. The conspiracies that have plagued our world are not going away anytime soon. The collapse of support structures that have kept things together can fuel mass extremism and righteousness.
With 5 planets also retrograde during the summer eclipses it makes for a time when so many are being pulled down and under. Only to crawl their way back up to fight again and again. Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto will all be “duking it out” forcing everyone to attack, blame, step back, and lash out in a vain attempt to have some sort of control through righteous indignation. The louder someone becomes the more fear they feel.
Everyone will want to blame someone.
The truth is that we are all to blame in this because we are all here at this very significant time in history for a reason and purpose. The stars tell a story that was written before any of us were ever born. Choosing to be here now, is about owning that we wanted to see and experience a monumental shift in consciousness and we wanted to be a part of it.
It is not about living or dying. You do not win if you survive. It is about what you do with this time and how much you hold your integrity to the sacred laws that are what promote all forms of life and growth on this planet.
