This might just be a year for your memoir, Sagittarius, but you have to let go of your baggage. You're always charismatic, but your powers are out of control when warrior planet Mars enters your sign on Friday, January 3. Mars rules ambition. Your success already has legs, so use this transit to become so powerful that you live up to your intimidating reputation. However, if the fuel for your success is dependent on making exes jealous, you may fall short. It's too short-sighted. On Sunday, January 12, Saturn conjuncts Pluto in business-minded Capricorn. Any spite or unresolved anger will only hold you back. Focus and get to work in the present.
You've spent far too much time in general worrying about the past. 2020 helps you get back in touch with yourself, thanks to your ruling planet, lucky Jupiter, aligning with Pluto, the planet of rebirth. This happens on Saturday, April 4, Monday, June 29, and Thursday, November 12. Each of these dates helps you connect with your long-term goals and personal values while quieting outside voices. Use these as check-in points to stay on track professionally throughout the year.
Venus, the planet of love and abundance, goes retrograde starting Wednesday, May 13 through Thursday, June 25. When a planet goes retrograde, it teaches us its lesson. Why didn't the relationships you mourn work out? As awful as it sounds, this retrograde asks you to take responsibility. Once you understand your part in these painful break-ups, you can make sure you don't make patterns out of bad behavior. While drastic changes to appearance should be avoided during Venus retrograde, lean into self-care.
Take stock of your sex life during this year's Mars retrograde.
Your lessons aren't done yet. Action planet Mars goes retrograde on Wednesday, September 9 through Saturday, November 14. Have you ever screamed something in a moment of anger that you later regretted? If so, this retrograde will force you to deal with your anger issues. If you're a mellow Sagittarius, use this transit to think about who you have sex with and why. What are your motives? Are you looking for casual fun or a long-term partner? Are you sexually satisfied? Take stock, and then take action after the retrograde is over.
As a Sagittarius, you're ruled by lucky Jupiter, and success comes naturally to you. However, sometimes you're too stuck in your head to see it. A theme for 2020 is to acknowledge and amplify your influence on your community and the world at large. When Jupiter enters humanitarian Aquarius on Saturday, December 19, you'll get a wake-up call regarding how revered and inspiring you really are. Enjoy it, but understand the responsibility you have to those who look up to you. You're academic by nature, even if you work in an unrelated field. Your employees, colleagues, and even your friends see you as a teacher. It's your cosmic duty not to disappoint them.
What astrologers are calling the "Great Conjunction" between Jupiter and Saturn goes down on Monday, December 21. Any nostalgia you clung to earlier this year will be ripped away — it's time to get rooted in the present. Use the 2020 holiday season to ground yourself, as your work has just begun. Romantically, the more you stay true to yourself the more likely you are to meet a partner up to your standards.
