Planetary races and retrogrades 2020

Mercury 2020

The planet Mercury, which has an impact on our thinking, speaking, and acting, ultimately on our mind and reason, needs 88 days for a complete solar orbit. On average, it declines three times in one year. It means that communication is usually disturbed in some way during these periods. So you will have to be very careful at work, in contract negotiations and in the entire communication area, so that no mistakes happen. If you act carefully, you will be able to prevent much. But sometimes this is not enough, since on many things we have no power or influence. For example, on office decisions, on a wrong buying choice, you could make, that turns out to be incorrect — that's why we are betrayed sometimes. The love letter one has put together with a great deal of effort, does not even appeal to the beloved one. Madness! But the tax report from the tax office with horrendous back payments will be delivered in any case! - That's what happens now.

The times of retrograde: 

Feb. 17th - March 10th

June 8th - July 12th,

Oct. 14th - Nov. 3rd

Venus 2020

The oft-coveted love goddess with her tenderness and love power can give us indescribable pleasures. Venus also dominates the beauty and the entire art areas. This planet needs 225 days to turn around the sun. It will also decline once again in 2020, namely by

May 13th - June 25th

This retrograde will be happening in Gemini. What can this particular time mean? 

The retrograde means that we can fix something that we have failed to do, or that we now have the opportunity to respond to past wrongdoings appropriately. In short, we are getting a second chance. And since Venus stands in Gemini and the ruler of Gemini is Mercury, that's an indication that we may have reacted wrongly once in a love affair. Or that we may have used too little of our time for love in the past, thus missing many pleasant things. But now Venus is standing in the communication area of Mercury, which is why contact with interesting people, will be much easier than before. Now flirting is announced, and we should do that now! And all those who are eternal lovers are not excluded from it!

Mars 2020

To the energy planet, which needs two years for a solar orbit, we owe the ideas, impulse, courage, the fighting power, and the male sexuality up to war with its negative impact. Mars will also once again decline in 2020, from

September 10th to November 14th,

This retrograde will take place in Aries, so precisely the Zodiac sign of Mars.

On the one hand, therefore, a powerful energy will flow to you, which is why you must be sure not to overreact. Discharging the energy in excess through sporting activities, for example, would be a way of avoiding disputes. But it will not always be easy to control aggressiveness.

On the positive side, this is also a time when one can accept setbacks more easily. And can immediately set out to start again since new energy will now be available. Mars in the sign Aries means enthusiasm, boldness, and fearlessness. You will now show a healthy self-confidence, and the obstacles will be tackled with energy. Freedom and independence are now fundamental to you, and the craft skills are now also very well developed.

Who stands in the way, is blown over, would be the characteristic of this period. Of course, it is too extreme, and the idea should be rejected, even though it will not be adopted by everyone. Yes, many Wild West films are based on the excesses of this Aries-Mars influence, and we often talk about them with pleasure. But these male-bristling excesses belong only to the world of movies.

Jupiter 2020

The big Planet of Luck needs 12 years for a complete solar orbit. Jupiter has been standing in Capricorn since December 2nd, 2019 and will stand there until December 19th, 2020. But since Saturn rules the Zodiac sign of Capricorn, it means that the planet, which otherwise provides expansion in all areas, can now, so to speak, operate only to a limited extent. The reason why you will experience and will have to accept specific disabilities. At the same time, the situation is also quite good and cannot wholly be considered unfavorable. Less can be more; it depends only on the right attitude. A single flower in the meadow can give you more pleasure than a flower-strewn field. It is essential to keep up your optimism, and that's what Jupiter is responsible for because times will come again when the Planet of Luck will go much more into effect.

Jupiter in Capricorn makes you more frugal, self-confident, ambitious, reliable, and caring. You are well in control and altogether smart. However, be warned against too narrow-minded or egotistical actions - to avoid the word stinginess, since you should always preserve individual generosity.

2020 - Saturn in Capricorn

The strong master Saturn needs 29 years and a half for a complete solar orbit. Saturn has been standing in Capricorn since December 20th, 2017, and will linger there until March 22nd, 2020.

On March 22nd, Saturn will enter the Zodiac sign Aquarius and will hold up there until July 2nd, 2020.

On this date, Saturn will then decline, returning to Capricorn and remaining there until December 17th, 2020. And finally, on December 17th, 2020, the planet will move to Aquarius for about two years and a half.

The doctrine of Saturn

Saturn always makes us acutely aware of concentrating on the essentials of life; otherwise, we may perish. This planet has little sense for amusements, not to say none at all. And who can accept that from you? Not many. Still, Saturn is inexorable and compels you to act according to its guidelines, which may cause pessimism, melancholy, solitude, and silence. We know that only too well.

The financial conditions usually have their say, but to the extent that there is too little money in the cash register, and supplies must be provided. You will not wish to marry now, and also with friendships and love affairs, you will not always have a good taste. The good in life barely comes unattended or runs past you.

But on the other hand, a strong and enduring will is now being developed, accompanied by great self-restraint and authority. Of course, also by diligence, thrift, and diplomacy. By and large, this situation will guarantee you slow but sure progress. And you should be grateful for that because it ensures your very existence. 

2020 - Saturn in Aquarius

Saturn will be in Aquarius from March 22nd, 2020 to July 2nd, 2020,

and then again from December, 17th 2020 to March, 7th 2023.

Saturn is quite different in Aquarius than in Capricorn.  Aquarius is a philanthropist and responsible for innovations in science and art; also, the quality of Saturn is influenced by this effect. You are now placing more emphasis and acting more convincingly on these areas. And with a smart operation, you will also succeed in science, art, and technology. You will be loyal in friendship and also very reliable. The financial situation will be improving. You'll also enjoy participating in social and charitable ventures, and love and marital relationships will now be developing more harmoniously. What more could your heart desire?

With confidence in the new year

We from the team wish you all the best for the beginning and then running lunar year 2020! With the help of our guardian angels, we will manage again all the tasks that will come our way. Confidence is always appropriate because faith is a positive force, which in turn causes beneficial effects. Angels will protect and help you, and they will always be happy if you can enjoy the precious moments of life with all your heart.
