Happy New Year to all, the beginning of a new decade!
Simply put, the next 10 years is all about having 20/20 vision!
Lots of 2's in 2020, and the number 2 has to do with balance, peace and harmony, feeling settled within, understanding and equaity.
2020 adds up to the number 4 which is all about order, being organised, setting boundaries, creating strategies and structure, and most importantly taking responsibility, being disciplined and in control.
Lets hope that common sense prevails throughout this coming new year because we are only at the start of having that clear 20/20 focus and vision!
Every year in Astrology there are powerful dynamic and fascinating planetary patterns.
For 2020, we start the year with a huge Saturn Pluto conjunction followed by a Full Moon Eclipse. We start the new year and decade with a bang!
I have broken it down into 3 stages.
Stage 1 - Taking Accountability
Stage 2 - Breakthroughs
Stage 3 - Transformation
Stage 1 - Taking Accountability
In the first stage of 2020, there is a huge Saturn Pluto exact conjunction in Capricorn happening on 10 January. We have been working up to this major development throughout 2019. Can you imagine Saturn, the hard task master colliding with Pluto, the God of the Underworld!
There are a lot of negative reports out there about this Saturn and Pluto conjunction, blasting "Doom and Gloom" stories and I suppose here in Australia, many are facing a very dark time in their lives with all the fires that are going on. But it doesn't have to be dark!
Saturn is about responsibility and Saturn is asking us to take accountability for our actions, this is the practical focus and a good habit to develop. It is so easy to point the finger at others and make it their fault but when we take this approach we make ourselves the victim and we're stuck in pain!
Pluto will bring up for us what we have been trying to avoid. Well you cannot avoid it any longer its time to rip off the blindfold folks so we can have that clear 20/20 vision and transform into what we are planning to do and become.
Jupiter has also moved into Capricorn for the whole year and Jupiter's gift is to make us expand and grow. To explore new horizons, to venture out of our comfort zone. Mix this with Capricorn results-oriented energy and we can make real things happen.
With Jupiter's energy and quest for truth we can really build a fabulous new concept, start building a new habit and make this our new foundation. This will bringing forth a new understanding for a new future.
Come February and the planet Mars will also transit Capricorn. OMG its a full house! Mars the planet of action will get us moving in that right direction that we have been working on already and taking it the the next level. Now is the time to get in motion, you should be seeing some practical results and outcomes.
We are at the beginning of a new year and a new decade. The combination of these 3 planets in Capricorn - Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter and Mars are helping us to create a new foundation to build upon. The stage is being set with strong foundations, discipline and practical focus, with integrity and authenticity way deep in our psyche, and being accountable for our actions in the outer world.
Stage 2 - Breakthroughs
From April to the end of June the planet Saturn will start transiting into Aquarius. Here is the beginning of seeing things with new eyes, maybe that 20/20 new vision is starting to become clearer.
By December 2020, Saturn and Jupiter will conjunct in Aquarius and this will be huge! Known as "The Great Conjunction" because it will be the first time in an Air element. In the past 20 years they met in an Earth element, now in the Air element it will bring through that new vision.
Also, Mars will hit Aquarius from April to May. These new ideas and visions will ramp up here. Saturn is very good with objectivity and practical focus. Mars will bring the energy and the determination to get it done!
Air is all about ideas, the mind and intellect, having open discussions, expanding these new ideas, sharing of the new ideas, exploring them, the sky literally is the limit here!
On the outer level, I am reminded of new settlements on Mars projects being escalated or having breakthroughs with quantum computers and new technologies being developed and brought into mainstream. This is fantastic for those out there that need to see the proof, the answers will be coming through!
On a personal inner level, I can see new spiritual ideas coming in, new ways of thinking and understanding how we work, how we want to work, being more open minded.
Another Air development is with Venus moving into Gemini from April to August. Venus usually brings grace and beauty to the table but being in Gemini, one may speak too quickly and wish they hadn't!
So be mindful that you don't jump the gun. Gemini is the trickster remember and your words may be misconstrued. Be clear with your communication, words are a powerful tool, speak clearly and take your time!
Stage 3 - Transformation
In the later part of the year, Mars enters Aries and will also Retrograde in this sign. Mars will spend 6 months in Aries, instead of the normal 6 weeks. Mars is very content to be in Aries because it is its home sign.
Mars energy is determined energy, courageous and action oriented, pioneering energy, it takes initiatives and can be forceful, it wants to push through.
This is incredibly high-powered energy and you have the opportunity to use this energy to your advantage. This is fabulous for getting us past those blocks in life.
During mid August, Mars will square Pluto. Here we will have the God of War clashing with the God of the Underworld. Please be mindful here!
People usually are negative and angry, but if they are aware they don't have to be. Don't get caught up in being in "Negative Nancy" use this powerful dynamic energy to be a "Positive Nancy" instead!
There is already a lot of tension and stress in the world, don't feed it and add to it. This is your chance to have major breakthroughs. This is the way to use Mars Pluto energy in its highest possible levels. Take this energy to a safe place, like going the gym, riding your bike, doing exercise and get ready for Summer.
The energy around you may be plenty nasty, if you are focused on what you are doing, being within your integrity, you don't have to get caught up in it or react to it at all!
We begin the New Year with a Jupiter Mercury conjunct in Capricorn on 2 January. You should feel this energy straight away. This is perfect energy for all those New Years Resolutions out there.
Jupiter making you think past the limit of yourself and Mercury rules your mind. The canvas is a perfect clean slate and you can drawn upon it whatever you want. Perfect time to plant new ideas with positivity, fire and passion. Make them grow throughout the year!
The month begins with a huge Saturn and Pluto exact conjunction in Capricorn on 10 January. This combination can make a lot of people nervous, but it doesn't have to be. I also understand here in Australia, there are many fires currently happening and many people and animals are suffering.
Saturn the God of accountability vs Pluto the God of the Underworld. Maybe to bring about the new foundations, we have to burn down the old. The ashes represent the old past then the phoenix can be rebirthed. Releasing the old energy so we can rebuild again this time with stronger foundations.
A term that I have been using lately is "Preparation leads to Opportunity." 2019 was all about the preparation time, now in 2020 its about stepping into the new opportunity. If you are not prepared, you will not be ready to take the opportunity when it appears.
This will all accumulate with the Full Moon Eclipse in Cancer also on 10 January. Cancer is the polarity of Capricorn, funny about that! This is highlighting something important for us that we need to pay attention too.
It started on the 26 December when we had the New Moon Eclipse in Capricorn. Whatever we started in December, now we complete the cycle with this Eclipse in Cancer.
Cancer brings our attention to what is of comfort to us. It is a time of being self-sufficient, developing new habits so in time of need you don't depend on anyone else out there, but on yourself. There is no need for medications or prescriptions, you are strong within yourself and standing on your own two feet!
This Full Moon Eclipse in Cancer is peaking at the same time Saturn and Pluto are conjunction in Capricorn. These 3 planets are bringing our attention to what we really need to be command of ourselves.
Taking care of our needs, what is nurturing and nourishing to us, so we take responsibility for ourselves, and not blame others for how we feel. So, take charge of your own emotions!
This is growing up time. Not only taking care of our own needs but being accountable for it too. This is what it means to be an adult. To enter the next stage of our journey with wisdom.
On the 24 January we have a New Moon in Aquarius. All that Air element is starting to come through, which is totally different energy to that Capricorn Earth we have been experiencing.
Now we enter the realm of the mind, the intellectual, the thinking and communication. Now is the time we align ourselves with the right words, mind and thoughts with the reality you want to manifest.
Aquarius is about humanity, the love of one-another, sharing with each other. Unconditional love energy and loving unconditionally. Activating this positivity will bring love and light in your life as well as others.
What a wonderful powerful month, happy breakthroughs!

2. Turn Over Two Tarot Cards to Answer the Monthly Question
Every Month I like to turn over 2 cards, one from the top of the deck to represent the Conscious energy and the other from the bottom of the deck to represent the Unconscious energy. I am always thinking of the big picture and exploring for the collective.
I asked the Tarots what it had to say about the Numerology of a Number 4 year. The two cards I turned over were: 4 of Swords in the Conscious position and The Knight of Pentacles in the Unconscious position.
No surprise a number 4 card showed up and the Knight of Pentacles is all about being slow and steady just like a number 4 energy likes.
The 4 of Swords to me looks very relaxed. And The Knight of Pentacles looks very sure of himself.
The number 4 as you remember is all about law and order otherwise chaos consumes everything! When you are in order you can rest assured that all is going according to plan, this is what the 4 of Swords is displaying to me.
The 4 of Swords may also be dreaming and visualising about what is next. This is what we do when we have a break. We hang up our woes for the time being and have some time out so we can look up and bring some more meaning into our life.
I heard a wonderful quote from Oprah during this week, "Preparation leads to opportunity." And this is the feeling I get with seeing these 2 cards together.
Preparation leads to Opportunity
- Oprah Winfrey
When you are prepared, then when the opportunity shows up you can grab the luck and you move into the Knight of Pentacles action oriented energy.
The Knight of Pentacles, is holding the most valuable thing in his hand. He knows what he is going to do with it. He has planted the seeds already and he is surveying what he has done.
Pentacles energy is earthy, practical and spiritual. It is something of value, it holds meaning for you and you want to make this grow.
In Summary, in relation to the question...
The 4 of Swords is in deep mediation about what the future will bring. Taking your time, giving the deserved time it takes to make this valuable thing grow.
The Knight of Pentacles is watching over his ploughed field. He knows he is onto something good. He would not do it if it was not of value. He wouldn't waste his time, effort or energy on it if there was no good "Return on Investments!"
This year will have a good return for you if you plan and prepare for the opportunity, if you do you will be happy with the outcomes.
