The new year begins in 2019 with a solar eclipse that peaked in your relationship sign (Capricorn) on December 26th. This lunation, paired with other cosmic events, brings opportunities for enhancement in all important connections. You’re still doing the work of relating. But this time, you will begin to see the fruits of all your efforts.
In fact, the winter months may inspire love and affection, especially if you are taking a trip with a spouse or partnering with close connections in a group training or certification. The more you can include others in your plans, the greater your success. Do not let glitches and delays during this time interrupt inspired moments of love and togetherness. Give yourself permission to explore; bonus if you have a travel buddy.
The spring months, meanwhile, see you turning your attention toward your career (FYI, developments now may be revisited during the fall). If you are networking for employment, or aligning yourself in a new company setting, energy here will bring support. In fact, a theme in effect all year will encourage you to branch out and meet new people. Doing so could bring new friendships and/or professional advancement.
It’s business as usual the first few months of 2020 until we reach the end of May. By then, you will begin to feel low on energy and out of sorts; a “sleepy period” will peak bringing an extended review or assessment.
You may be contemplating personal changes at this time, uncertain of how best to plan your course of action. This is especially true if it involves a significant other; you may not know whether or not such a personal decision will be supported.
Eclipses further add to confusion, with three peaking in the summer instead of the standard two. Lunar eclipses on June 5th and July 5th bring a shift or completion in an important relationship, while a potent solar eclipse nestled in between right at summer solstice on June 21st brings a personal new beginning for you.
What you are considering at this time may beg the need for you to forego a partnership that disrupts your ability to productively pursue your own goals. Whether you are dissolving a business venture or romantic affair, you are aware of the need to invest in your own agenda.
There may be some confusion or back and forth with your plans, however, starting in June through July. The greenlight to act may be delayed. Furthermore, you will continue to assess things behind the scenes as you navigate uncertainties, so give yourself time and space to reflect on the best path forward.
By the end of July/early August, the dust will settle, and you will know where you stand. The end of summer sees you firm in an important decision, asserting your own will, and hopefully with important relationships still intact.
As you get your bearings entering September, another round of tumultuous cosmic weather begins on the career front. This is activity that will bring grave delays, so consider yourself warned.
If you are applying for a new job, a hiring freeze may prolong consideration of your candidacy. Same is true if you are working on a grant with funding that runs out; it may take some time for funding to be restored, pausing your efforts toward an important project.
These delays will last through November bringing great frustrations. October will further complicate these blocks as minor setbacks at home and with family develop. If you are relocating for work, for example, you may find that you can’t identify a place to live until work obstacles resolve. If you work in real estate, a housing crisis might make commissions hard to secure.
October may very well be the most challenging month of 2020, so be sure to exercise patience. You will have two options on how best to navigate certain restrictions: Lean back and wait or find a working solution in the interim. Important relationships will be impacted here, and personal stress may be felt too.
November brings a shift as obstacles on the work and home fronts begin to gradually move forward. Momentum will return in both areas as we close out the year.
Meanwhile, 2020 ends with another round of eclipses. A lunar eclipse brings the release of an important fear or anxiety on November 30th, while the solar eclipse on December 14th comes with a new start to your day-to-day.
What is revealed during the lunar eclipse may very well be linked to what was being assessed throughout May and June. You may find that you do have to relieve yourself of inner doubts in order to prepare for a new start coming courtesy of the solar eclipse, especially if this is a new job now that career obstacles are moving forward.
The most important relationship we have, dear Cancer, is the relationship with ourselves. 2020 sees you learning how to love yourself a little more, trust yourself a little more, and invest in yourself a little more so that you can take advantage of new opportunities.
Commitments come with weight in 2021, whether you are committing to a new entrepreneurial venture, a new partnership, or committing to yourself. Let 2020 be the year when you begin to balance the give and take in relationships, so that you have enough energy to invest in you.
Happy New Year, Cancer!
