It’s no secret that things feel a little bit scary and uncertain right now. It’s hard to find the silver lining when we’re stuck in a haze of a global pandemic. Fortunately, as it always has, astrology can help us make sense of where we ~are~ in the universe—and where we’re going. I asked two astrologers from Cosmopolitan’s Cosmo(s) Council to provide us with some inspiring, hope-inducing astrological events that are yet to come this year to provide us with some things to look forward to during this great time of uncertainty.
March 19th, 2020: The Sun Moves Into Aries, Kick-Starting a New Zodiac Cycle
Aliza Kelly: Right now, we’re at the end of Pisces season, which means we’re scraping the bottom of the astrological energy barrel. Also, the Sun and Neptune (the planet of illusions) are connected in Pisces, so there’s a lot of fear and paranoia. TL;DR: It’s hard to see things clearly.
When the Sun moves into Aries, the universal energy will shift from alarm to assertion. We’re going to feel a boost of confidence, a boost of momentum. We need to funnel this energy into coming up with new ideas for solving the world’s biggest problems. Think of it this way: With the Sun in Pisces, we’re underwater. With the Sun in Aries, we’ll begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
March 21st, 2020: Saturn Enters Aquarius
AK: Saturn is the planet associated with systems and tradition. Right now, it’s at the anorectic degree (the 29th degree) of Capricorn, meaning that it’s reached its final stage of motion in this uptight sign. We’re realizing which of our nation’s systems and structures aren’t working. So when Saturn moves into innovative Aquarius on March 21st, we will see a burst of progress, innovation, and new ideas.
March 24th, 2020: There’s a New Moon in Aries
AK: This will start a new lunar cycle. Since the Moon represents our feelings, this shift will help us regulate our emotions.
May 13th, 2020: Venus Moves Retrograde in Gemini
Lisa Stardust: During this period, we can expect hope and optimism to be replenished. This retrograde lasts until June 25th and the pre-Retrograde shadow starts April 9th, so we will start to see major positive changes soon. Normally, Venus Retrograde evokes complicated emotions, but with Neptune aspecting Venus while Venus is retrograde, we can all expect to receive healing energy. Once Venus enters comforting Cancer on August 7th, panic will start to subside.
October 4th, 2020: Pluto Goes Retrograde
LS: The stars say that we will be making major evolutionary breakthroughs at this time. We reflect on ourselves (specifically our issues) when this planet is retrograde. Hopefully, this manifests in developments that can help heal the world.
December 19th, 2020: Jupiter Enters Aquarius
LS: Jupiter in Capricorn has left us all feeling like we don’t have “enough”—Jupiter likes to expand and Capricorn likes to minimize. When Jupiter enters Aquarius on December 19th, the energy will feel lighter.
