Horoscopes: Your 2020 forecast

After enduring three Mercury in retrograde phases, 2019 has been a big year to say the least.

As a brand new year looms, it's time to take a look at what the stars have in store for 2020. Here's what you can expect the new year to bring:


Life and luck

This year opens up with a bang allowing emotional growth and unexpected surprises to come your way. This is an especially fantastic year for spiritual growth, and connecting to your true calling. The movement of your home planet Mars brings major lessons surrounding courage, healing hasty decisions, and major aspects testing your personal patience.

The keyword is willpower during this process as your sign tends to be impulsive, which might lead to a period of do-overs from September 9 through November 13 as Mars goes retrograde in your own sign! This planetary transit is meant to bring clarity to your own personal path, especially if you haven't been putting your needs first. This is a particularly eye-opening year for you for sure, full of adventure, romance, and inspiring self-discovery.


This is a year where the old options and circumstances need to go by the wayside! It is time to let ex-loves go out with the trash, and this includes patterns in relationships that are highly toxic! A former love might come crawling back in late June, which can be both highly satisfying to your ego, and confusing at the same time, especially if you've been working hard to move on from a romantic attachment.

The test is hot-and-heavy, and desires this year have you feeling like you're waking up from a long hibernation. Fated attractions to powerful people are very likely, and choices of independent pursuits might have you second guessing your initial intentions in the first place. Overall, this is a very big year, full of spirit, wisdom, and romantic passion!
