Firstly, I want to wish you all a very healthy, happy and prosperous 2020! To herald the dawn of a brand-new year I decided to shuffle and lay cards from the 22 cards of the Major Arcana. Each card revealing the overall energy working with, and for, each Zodiac sign during the following 12 months. Find out what this means for you personally below!
ARIES: (Mar 21 - Apr 20) ”The Sun”
Ah, the wonderful 19th card of the Major Arcana just for you lovely Aries! Expect abundance and success in all you seek to achieve this year in relationships, health and work, in fact all areas of your life. The warmth of the Sun will shine upon you and help banish any darkness, especially that related to depression, or just feeling at war with yourself, you may have accumulated during the previous 12 months. However, this doesn’t mean you should sit back and wait for this to happen so don’t become too complacent. Your input and willingness to do what must be done is the lubrication necessary for the “engine” to function. Retrieve and dust-off plans made and perhaps put on hold until the “right time.” Dare to dream big, create opportunities for making your life what you’ve always wanted it to be and, most of all, act with faith and belief in yourself. Make 2020 the year you shine your divine light!
TAURUS: (Apr 21 - May 21) “Wheel of Fortune”
If you’d rather forget 2019 ever happened Taurus then rest assured that 2020 will have been worth waiting for. Playing a waiting game and hoping everything would fall into place last year just didn’t work out for you did it? You know why? This card explains why. It wasn’t meant to be because it wasn’t the right time. So, no matter how hard you willed it and prayed for it to happen, the Universe just wasn’t going to play ball. 2020, however, is when, whatever has been working for you behind the celestial scenes, has arranged for everything you’ve dreamed of to fall into place. This lesson may have been a frustrating one but, as you’ll discover by day, week, month, of this year, well worth waiting for. There may come a moment of clarity when you find yourself thinking, “If this had happened last year it wouldn’t have worked!” I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so!
GEMINI: (May 22 - June 21) “The Devil”
Be on your guard for the next few months at least lovely Gemini. If the Angel and Demon on each shoulder are competing to have the most influence on your actions then it appears the naughty one, not the nice one, may have the upper hand, or should that be pitchfork? Avoid temptation in any form, and consider carefully any business propositions, potential or ongoing relationships both personal and professional. If your temper has embroiled you in tough situations in the year just gone, take time to think before you act or speak if you feel the temperature rising and not in a good way. You may run the risk of eating or drinking too much so keep both under control. On the bright side, your passion and enthusiasm for life and what it has to offer can provide you with an outlet or two to let off steam. However, “Be careful what you wish for you may just get it springs to mind!” be your own best friend not your own worst enemy and you’ll be ok.
CANCER: (June 22 - July 22) “The Empress”
Your focus for this year Cancer will be in working with your wonderful ability to create, nurture and inspire others. You may be undertaking more responsibility in caring for family members, celebrating a birth, volunteering at a hospice or somewhere you feel you can make a difference. You may be celebrating a milestone birthday or major life event which involves moving from one chapter in your life story to the beginning of another. Nothing to be nervous about as the previous months will have worked to prepare you for this. A more settled year in all areas of your life as this year is about YOU. What makes you happy? Family matters are more settled including extended family thus freeing up your time to spend as you wish. Your skills as someone able to listen to confidences and remain non-judgemental will be much sought after and appreciated.
LEO: (July 23 - Aug 21) ”Temperance”
Beautiful Temperance Leo will help sustain and nourish you in all your endeavours in 2020, especially in relation to your interaction with others. It’s not always easy for you to see both sides of the story, dispute or conflict, but that won’t be as much of a problem for you in the coming year. Endowed with the fairness and all-seeing wisdom of this beautiful card gifts you the ability to see the bigger picture. It also relates to being fair to yourself. If you tend to burden yourself with unsustainable, unreachable or unreasonable expectations, then it’s time to stop for your own good. Act sensibly while you can before you may have to, by which time, it may be too late and the emotional, mental or physical damage is done. Seek balance in all aspects of your life in 2020 and find the peace you may have lost and struggled to regain until now. Gift yourself the fairness of personal peace of mind.
VIRGO: (Aug 22 - Sep 23) ”The Star”
This year may be perfect for planning a retreat or two, or three…… in order to “find yourself” Virgo. The Star reminds you that, in order to heal, withdrawing from life and its stressors, even for a short while, can work wonders in restoring your depleted energy. You may be feeling emotionally, mentally or physically “bruised” due to events in 2019 taking their toll. However, how wonderful that this beautiful card indicates the energy gifted to you for 2020 is one of healing, and no ordinary healing, but celestial, spiritual healing for the mind, body and Spirit. There is no shame in making yourself a priority although we tend to feel guilty if we focus on ourselves rather than others. Think about it this way. If we’re not 100% how can we function to the best of our ability for those who do need and rely on us? So, it would be logical for you Virgo to do whatever it is you feel restores and replenishes you, and as often as you feel the need to, wouldn’t it? Why not make this your New Year’s resolution, stick with it, and see how you feel this time next year? I’m guessing very different from how you feel presently. Only time will tell.
LIBRA: (Sep 24 - Oct 23) “The Fool”
Exciting opportunities will be offered to you this year lovely Libra. Your many skills that you have worked so hard to gain have brought you to where you need to be to embark on the next stage of your life journey. Major changes await you regarding your lifestyle, career, home, country of residence or relationships. The possibilities are endless. Don’t waste time worrying it’s too good to be true, but be confident that you are well equipped for what comes next. Of course, it’s natural to be a tad nervous or wary about something you may not experienced before, but isn’t it exciting too? Could the opportunity for a total make-over of your way of life be just what you’ve been hoping for? If so, grasp the bull by the horns as the saying goes and jump in with both feet. No parachute necessary thank you very much! You won’t regret it.
SCORPIO: (Oct 24 – Nov 22) “The World”
The saying “The world is your oyster” has never rung truer than for you regarding 2020 Scorpio! The ultimate Tarot card of the Major Arcana, wow! With this “anything is possible” energy working with you there isn’t much you can’t achieve. Will you graduate this year after a long period of study? If so, securing a promising career role with potential will be yours for the asking. If you plan to launch a business, then do so as it has the potential to be very successful. Good health may be restored after a period of debilitating illness. Finding love in a new relationship or hoped for commitment in an existing relationship brings happiness. Fertility problems will be overcome resulting in the birth of a longed-for baby. The number 21 will be relevant for many of you so take note. Air travel will be prominent throughout the year.
SAGITTARIUS: (Nov 23 - Dec 22) “The Lovers”
Relationships will take centre stage in 2020 Sagittarius. Romantic relationships will be passionate but also meaningful on a deeper, emotional level, which will promote a more even balance. No short, meaningless ships that pass in the night, tut tut, but potential for commitment. You or your partner may be required to fully support the other as they aspire towards an achievement or goal. This may mean sacrifices having to be made as one may be called upon to shoulder more responsibility whilst the other’s focus is elsewhere for a time. Relationships, whether romantic, professional or friends, will become closer and strong bonds will be forged. There may be more invitations to socialise received but ensure you strike a balance between burning the candle at both ends and all work and no play makes Jill/Jack a dull girl/boy! Be aware of undercurrents in a relationship, probably with a friend, as all may not be as it seems. They may want more of your undivided attention so jealous of time you spend with others. Be sure not to exclude anyone from social occasions.
CAPRICORN: (Dec 23 - Jan 20) ”Judgement”
You are being judged upon entering 2020 Capricorn. Whatever this year has in store will bring with it the consequences and repercussions of 2019. You remember those old black and white movies where the detectives shine a bright light on the faces of suspects to get them to talk? (Or am I showing my age? 😊) That would be you. If you conducted yourself honourably in 2019, and I don’t mean you were a Saint as we’re all only human, but did no great harm to others, then that’s great. You’ll be judged favourably and reap the rewards throughout the next months. That will include the bright light being switched off and you enjoying a happy, productive, positive, healthy, prosperous year to look forward to. However, if you need to make amends for any harsh words, unfair actions, or underhand dealings you were guilty of last year, then do so sooner rather than later. Begin this year as you mean to go on by learning from past mistakes. It will be worth it, I promise.
AQUARIUS: (Jan 21 - Feb 19) “Strength”
Ah lovely Aquarius you have the card of Strength working with you in 2020. Perhaps you need as a reminder that you are indeed stronger than you gave yourself credit for in 2019. Maybe it wasn’t all your fault as whatever went on may have tested your strength to the limit, bless you. You are to be commended for getting this far without buckling under the strain although, saying that, I feel you were almost at the end of your tether. The energy of this lovely card is committed to fighting your corner whatever assails you in the months to come. It seeks to offer you, not only reassurance, but also the assurance you are never alone, but have access to a “higher power” to battle on your behalf. A champion in your corner if you like. How great is that? That’s not to say 2020 is going to a year of trial and tribulation. Not at all. It’s just reminding you that if, and when, you need to access the power of strength, then do so. This is a reassuring card of protection for the year.
PISCES: (Feb 20 - March 20) ”The Magician”
As the card numbered 1 in the Major Arcana Pisces it’s very apt in “kick starting” your year. There is no limit to what you can achieve in 2020, using the skills, gifts and knowledge you possess. Your intuition will be heightened and therefore allow you a deeper understanding of where your focus should lie in your spiritual work. Directing your power into working for the light on behalf of others will brings its own reward. However, you may also want to consider building on the knowledge you already have by seeking out a course of study. Something to add to your spiritual repertoire. Those of you not working directly for Spirit will find that your skills will be much in demand, so if you’ve been considering changing your job or embarking on a different career, make this the year to make it happen. Some of you may also be considering teaching as a career or thinking of sharing your teaching skills with others, perhaps in a mentoring role or as a volunteer. If you’re feeling indecisive about where to use your skills to your best advantage, don’t be afraid to ask for advice from those more qualified. You need to sort this out once and for all. 2020 holds the potential for remarkable progress in what you do in life but it’s for you to decide where this lies so no dithering, you hear?
