Aries (21 March – 19 April)

Eclipse Season & Saturn/Pluto

Eclipse season is here this month adding extra charge to the Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse on the 10th and the Saturn/Pluto conjunction on the 12th. This Eclipse is part of the Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle which began in July 2018 and completes in July 2020. It follows on from the Solar or New Moon Eclipse on December 26, 2019.

Cancer and Capricorn represent the foundations of your life. Cancer is at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. Capricorn is at the peak of your horoscope ruling your career and vocation, your future path and where you’re heading.

As eclipses symbolise change, it’s likely that you’re in transition in either or both of these key areas of your life. In fact, it would be unusual to be in the same place at the end of such a major eclipse cycle as you were at the beginning. 

Plus, the Saturn/Pluto conjunction intensifies this month’s eclipse. From the 10th to the 13th, the Sun, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury sit side by side in Capricorn, the sign of the father, the hierarchy. This is about your career and vocation, your future path and where you’re heading.

Events mid-month could coincide with the end of a job or contract. Or perhaps, your boss leaves or there’s news of a closure or a death that affects your own life. Alternatively, it’s the ideal time to look at how you’ve been working over the last two years. If you’ve been out of work or over-worked, consider how you can work smarter not harder in 2020. 

Think about how you can bring other people in to help you, whether you outsource some of your business or you want more connection on a daily basis. Or, you might be thinking about shifting direction so your work becomes more meaningful and helps to make a difference in the world.

Think about the symbolism playing out in your life and look at what’s changing. It may be that you have a big decision to make about where you live, a tense situation concerning a parent or another member of your family, seeking work or your next steps.

Uranus & Jupiter – Freedom

Also this month, the planet of change, Uranus, turns direct in Taurus and your personal money sector on the 11th, sandwiched between the Lunar Eclipse and the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. This indicates that financial changes could go hand-in-hand with what’s happening in your working life and with regard to the foundations of your life. 

You could experience overnight success, which gives you more choices, more opportunity. Jupiter, the planet of abundance, is also in Capricorn, urging you to expand your horizons and break free. 

In fact, it may be that new beginnings seeded over the festive season in December are leading you down a new path, one that’s more in alignment with your beliefs, your principles, your authentic self.

Events on the 2nd could help you firm up your plans for the future. Certainly, it’s an excellent day to write down or voice your 2020 goals and intentions when communication planet, Mercury teams up with lucky Jupiter, a symbol of good news.

Mars Sagittarius – Explore

Your sense of adventure is on the increase too as your ruling planet Mars moves in to your fellow fire sign Sagittarius on the 3rd, where it remains until mid-February. Mars rules drive, action and strength; Sagittarius is the explorer of the zodiac willing to push back the boundaries of life and seek knowledge, learning and new experiences.

This could be about travel and booking a holiday or signing up for a course, discovering a new activity that gives your life meaning and purpose or finding out more about philosophy, spirituality and the metaphysical realm.

Mars is raring to go in Sagittarius, fearless and bold. You want to grab life by the reins and charge off at great speed in a new direction. There’s a reckless quality to Mars and a sense that nothing ventured, nothing gained. You’re a dynamic individual at heart and this month could be all about letting go of fear or doubt about your future, refusing to stay stuck in your comfort zone.

Mars almost gets a free run throughout Sagittarius apart from one questioning square aspect to Neptune on the 28th. If there are going to be times this month when you feel unsure about what you’re doing or where you’re heading, this is one of them.

This may coincide with an issue concerning a personal relationship as the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, square up to one another on the 27th. As this month is the time to focus on what you want in 2020, this could create ripples in your close relationships.

The Aquarius Vibe

Finally, there’s a shift into air sign Aquarius this month, especially after the 16th and 20th when talk planet Mercury and the Sun enter this sector. The New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th is when the Aquarius energy peaks. 

Aquarius rules your friends, group activities and your involvement within society, politics or an environmental or humanitarian cause. Basically, it’s an ideal time to find your allies and join in with other people. Keep your money out of the equation, especially on the 18th and 23rd. Otherwise, aim to team up with other people in all areas of your life.
