2020 begins with Mars transiting your career zone, providing you with plenty of ambition. However, a Lunar Eclipse on January 10 falls in your ego zone, Pisces, and you may suffer from a lack of recognition, or perhaps you'll find yourself side-lined at work. Two days later, the powerful Saturn-Pluto eclipse occurs in your community zone and this hints at what is to come: This year you'll be re-assessing your career path and perhaps moving out of the limelight ,but toward a more profound and satisfying role. To do that, you must accept receiving less personal glory, and these astrological aspects are the first steps in that process.
Fortunately, you have strong support to see you through this psychologically tricky time. Venus moves into Pisces on January 13, helping you express your compassionate nature to the fullest - and the more you move to help others, the more your own worries will recede. Mercury moves into your spiritual zone on January 16, so meditation, prayer, dreamwork and visualization will all help you to chart a path forward. Indeed, the New Moon in this zone of your chart on January 24 could mark a turning point in your understanding.
When Venus conjuncts Neptune on January 27, you'll feel a surge of oneness, a connection with the divine, as well as the rest of humanity. This is another milestone on your search for your true purpose, and it's starting to feel very positive.
As a sensitive water sign, your wellbeing is significantly influenced by the company you keep – and perhaps you’ve been surrounding yourself with the wrong kind of people. A Solar Eclipse in your friendship zone in the first week of the year may be a crisis point or a sudden shock which helps to clarify in your mind what needs to be done. A Lunar Eclipse in your health zone at the end of January urges a focus on your mental health, so don’t hesitate to walk away from those who drain you.
Once Uranus, the rebel planet, settles in your neighborhood zone in early March, you’ll find it easy to pick and choose who you spend time with. A New Moon in Pisces, also in early March, helps you to put yourself first and to recognise those who are truly on your side. With Mercury retrograde in your sign at this time, you may find it awkward at first to say no to people, but it will quickly become second nature.
Spend the year surrounding yourself with those who love you and those who are on the same wavelength as you. Once Jupiter arrives in your friendship zone in early December, many new faces will come into your orbit and new friendships will bring you great joy. There’s a mentor-like figure waiting for you too, likely to emerge in mid-December. Being stricter with the company you choose will enable your own identity to flourish – and not before time!
2019 is a relatively quiet year in your love life. If you’re happy in a relationship, you’re likely to stay that way; if you’re single, you can enjoy plenty of good company and fun encounters. A Full Moon in your romance zone in late February is an excellent time for a second honeymoon or for making special promises to a loved one. Venus arrives in your sign at the end of March, so the northern hemisphere’s springtime in general is a romantic and loving season this year.
A Solar Eclipse in early July falls in your risk zone, so there could be a shock in store if either you or your sweetheart have been less than honest recently. Warrior planet Mars is also transiting your passion zone around this time, so jealousy and rivalry could cloud a relationship for a month or two. Keep your head, however, because this is not a life-changing moment unless you want it to be. All things can be healed, if the will is there.
The end of August looks likely to be one such healing time in your love life. Within the space of a couple of weeks, Venus and Mars both shift into your love zone and a New Moon occurs there too – this is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. Whether it’s the healing of an established relationship or the early stages of a new one, the late northern summer brings peace, love and harmony for sure.
Work and career are some of the busiest astrological zones for you in 2019, so you can expect to see great progress here. Right from the start of the year, determined Mars is in your money zone, helping to boost your income and grow your wealth. An extremely fortunate Venus-Jupiter conjunction at the end of January falls in your career zone so you may find yourself in the right place at the right time for a very lucky break indeed. Hold your nerve and keep riding this wave. Mid-February brings a volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your money zone, so take care with any wheeling and dealing – get expert advice when you need it.
Three difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune occur in January, June and September, which suggest that your financial and career good fortune may cause you to rest on your laurels somewhat this year – maybe becoming a bit lazy or feeling slightly entitled. Watch out for this and nip it in the bud before it becomes an issue with your attitude. A Full Moon in your career zone in mid-June could highlight any arrogance you’ve developed, so try to stay humble.
Overall, however, you’ve worked hard to achieve what you have, and you’re entitled to some luck. A Full Moon in your money zone in mid-October, coupled with a New Moon in late November, suggests that you will end 2019 in a good place both financially and work-wise. Set some challenging goals for 2020, because you’re on a roll here.
During 2020, you’ll be called upon to work behind the scenes in many ways, Pisces. This could mean becoming less visible in your job. The major astrological event of the year, the unusual Saturn-Pluto conjunction, highlights the need to step back from the limelight to be of service in a more indirect way.
You will see this starting to happen almost immediately, with a Lunar Eclipse in your ego zone in January, swiftly followed by the exact Saturn-Pluto conjunction in your impersonal zone. Mars is transiting your career area at this time, so it may come as something of a shock if you find your glory being stolen.
You may find this difficult to handle at first, and with February’s Mercury Retrograde in your sign, talking about your feelings won’t be easy, either. But in March, Saturn arrives in your privacy zone, so you’ll be quite glad of the chance to lead a slightly less public life. Mars arrives here too and impacts upon your spirituality, driving you to seek some answers. You can learn a lot through prayer or meditation during the first half of 2020.
Busy yourself with your family life in April and May, as Venus transits this area before turning Retrograde there. With Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn also Retrograde, it’s the ideal astrological chance to reflect and heal, instead of having to rush around leading a high-voltage lifestyle.
The quiet starts to evaporate once Mars arrives in Pisces, and the Solar Eclipse in June in your ego zone probably doesn’t pass off quietly. Mercury is Retrograde here too, so you may struggle to react to a snub or a work-related move with dignity. Hang in there, because a Lunar Eclipse in your public zone will shed more light on why it’s necessary for you to take a back seat. You will eventually understand. During July, though, you can expect to have a few angry or resentful moments as you settle into your new role – the Sun forms a series of oppositions to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction that month, so anger is never far from the surface, especially around the time of the Lunar Eclipse in your impersonal zone.
September is when you’ll learn to value yourself for more than just your public role, Pisces, as indicated by Mars turning Retrograde in your values zone. At the same time, gentle Venus transits your everyday routine zone, helping you to settle down again. Expect a minor blip in November, during a Lunar Eclipse in your family zone, but it’s in December that the entire point of the year is really revealed: A Solar Eclipse in your career zone points toward a surprising or shocking new beginning. Unbeknownst to you, the energies of the year so far have been preparing you for this point. Jupiter is about to shift into your spiritual zone, so astrology suggests that you’ll come to understand that following a calling or a vocation is far more important than working in a role where there’s constant recognition and praise.
Love mixes a lot with friendship this year, Pisces, whether that’s just you and your lover enjoying your social life, or a friend turning into something more special if you’re single. It could be a bumpy start to the year, though, with an early January Lunar Eclipse in your pleasure zone. If your relationship has become stale and boring, this could be the jolt you need to do something about it.
In February, passionate Mars moves into your social zone. If you’re single, start by looking for new friends rather than a new lover. This energy is all about shared interests and shared purpose, so you may meet someone at a political rally, a charity event or even a church.
May could be a tricky period for romance, with Pluto, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn all Retrograde. With Mars in your sign, you’re probably coming across as more assertive or aggressive than normal, so watch out for arguments that don’t need to happen. This is especially likely in a new relationship, but an established one could go through a rocky and argumentative phase too.
Expect the unexpected in June, with a Solar Eclipse in your dating zone and Mercury Retrograde in that area too. Miscommunication is highly likely if you’re dating; if you’re in an established relationship, astrology suggests that you may be tempted to stray on the spur of the moment. Although it’s mostly related to your move into the background, July’s oppositions between the Sun and the Saturn-Pluto conjunction may also impact on your love life and your social life. There could be bad feelings if a friend does declare their love, but you’re not interested, so it’s very important to be tactful and respectful.
The tension doesn’t last long, and by August, Venus is transiting your pleasure zone, Pisces, promising many memorable moments in a relationship no matter if it’s old or new. This is the ideal time to have some fun!
October finds Venus in your romance zone and intriguingly, making a trine aspect to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction which sits in your impersonal zone. This could be another moment where love and friendship collide, although this time with a much happier outcome.
In an established relationship, December could be a very meaningful month. With Jupiter moving into your spiritual zone, you may feel driven to examine the karmic links between you and your lover – this could be very illuminating and will take your relationship to the next level for sure. If you meet someone new in December, it will most likely be through an unexpected coincidence, or a happy accident of some kind. Once you have met, you may feel as though you’re linked through previous lives – and yes, Pisces, you could well be right!
2020 is a year when you’ll seem to be moving into the background, away from the acclaim that your current job offers and into more of a supporting role. However, this is not a step backwards, Pisces – far from it – and this year’s energies may well be about helping you find your true vocation.
You start the year with Mars transiting your career zone, so your ambition is strong, and you probably can’t imagine that changing. However, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in your impersonal zone is starting to take effect. So, during February, as Venus moves through your values zone, you’ll probably find yourself questioning the purpose of what you do for a living.
In March, Saturn arrives in your spiritual zone and so does Mars. Another term for this astrology zone of your chart is the sacrifice zone, and that’s a hint about where your work life may be heading. Follow up any instincts you have for a caring, more altruistic role. Mars moves into your own sign in May, and so your ambitions will return, but most likely heading in this new direction.
During June, a Solar Eclipse in your ego zone and a Lunar Eclipse in your career zone both point toward this subtle shift of career interests – away from something individualistic and into a more demanding but arguably more important and satisfying role behind the scenes or in a support or caregiving role. This may even mean a temporary fall in income, but with Mars arriving in your money zone at the end of the month, you’ll be highly motivated to make up any shortfall through creative and ingenious side hustles.
Don’t be surprised if friends and family are not initially on board with a new career direction, especially in July. It really isn’t up to them, so don’t take criticism to heart. You may well not be fully convinced yourself, but it’s important to remember that it’s your decision alone, even if you feel that you have been semi-forced into this situation. Mars squares up to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in August, so one friend in particular may be heavily advising against where you’re headed. Follow your heart, Pisces.
Through fall (or spring – depending on your hemisphere) Mars spends some time Retrograde in your money zone, which is another indicator that your plans may lead to an income drop. However, in December, the Solar Eclipse in your career zone shows once and for all that you’re making the right decision. With Venus moving into your career zone and smoothing over any blips, things will go well. And as the year ends, Jupiter, the astrological bringer of good fortune, moves into your spiritual and sacrifice zone. If you do end up moving into a more vocation-like career, the signs are excellent that 2021 will bring you major satisfaction.
