Horoscope 2020: A tarot reading of what the new year holds for you

True empowerment is about being in a place where one can make decisions comfortably. That’s what the cards do; they enlighten us and give us clarity about which direction to go in. According to the cards, 2020 is the year of endings and beginnings, of cycles being completed, of achieving harmony and finding balance. Irrespective of your sign, let your inner wisdom be your GPS, it is the best guide to get you there. Here’s horoscope 2020.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)



You are all about the self, new beginnings, and potential. 2019 may have been a confusing year where everything was happening all at once, but 2020 has the potential for balance and clarity.

Major cycles are completing. For some, you are entering the new year with a fresh new perspective and a clear plan of action or maybe you are standing on the precipice of this completion. For others, you may be in the throes of chaos. This year asks you to find harmony between your outer and inner worlds. It’s time to let go of things that don’t serve you. You maybe holding on very tight, almost obsessing about wealth, physical possessions, and your image. It is time to travel inwards and find balance between your physical and emotional worlds. This year you have the strength to do this. Trust your inner wisdom. The world is full of illusions but if you have faith, you can overcome any obstacle. Remember who you truly are. Sometimes situations come up that challenge you to be authentic and that means you have to fully be yourself and let go of what you think others may want. 2020 is not a year to conform to other people’s expectations. Stop comparing yourself to others. You have the ability to harness deep divine wisdom but for that you must be your true authentic self.

Love and relationships
Let go in order to find peace of mind. Remember control is an illusion. Going with the flow and following your intuition will bring great joy. The more you struggle to fit people and relationships into rigid structures, the more you will struggle. Forgive others for what you think they have done or not done but most importantly, forgive yourself.

Work and finances
As old cycles close and new ones start, there is always a sense of insecurity. Don’t let fear block your way forward. Any sudden changes can be handled easily enough once you’ve given yourself enough time to adjust and
by letting go of any fixed ideas about the situation.

Want what you have, choose what your heart wants, and know that your purpose is yours alone — no one else can claim your magic nor take it away.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, Horoscope 2020


Your horoscope 2020 promises great achievement and major victory. As you close some important chapters and open new ones, it’s important to be aware of what you are taking with you into the new. This year there is a major emphasis on releasing old baggage so that you can move forward and embrace the victories that lie ahead for you. You tend to have a specific standard for what you consider ideal and this isn’t serving you right now. So forget your ideas of perfection and see things for what they are and what they can be, without judgment. Don’t wait for the perfect moment or mood to start something, and instead enter life with all its flaws. You are exactly where you’re supposed to be. When you drop the need for the ideal, you uncover the real treasure.

There is no space for old fears and disappointments. Trust yourself and trust that you have the right path and as you walk your path, share your wisdom with others. Allow the world to benefit from your experience.

Love and relationships
The theme for 2020 is self-reliance for you Taurus. This doesn’t mean you will be left to fend for yourself. On the contrary, this means you are moving away from co-dependency. If you find yourself blocked, unhappy, or over-sensitive in your relationships, then look within. As you find more balance in your relationship with yourself, you will find more balance in your other relationships.

Work and finances
As you move further into 2020, you have the potential to take charge of your life and go from feeling like a prisoner to becoming a ruler. In order to be a ruler, you must embrace your full potential. There is great abundance for you, and in order to realise it, you must not fear your power. Take charge of your life and create your boundaries.

2020 is abundant with opportunities for you Taurus but remember to be discerning – not all that glitters is gold.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, Horoscope 2020


The theme for 2020 is completion. When the world card shows up, it’s all about endings and new beginnings. Closing old outdated chapters and allowing new personal upgrades. This year has a fertile energy to it. Lots of new opportunities that bring great emotional satisfaction. In order to recognise, receive, and take advantage of these opportunities, you must understand that there is more to life than you perceive with your five senses. Gemini you have a sharp mind and strong communication skills but let us clarify the word communication – it isn’t only about talking sense and speaking well, it’s also about listening. You are being asked to listen… to your inner wisdom, to your intuition. Your intuition is not your sixth sense but your first — your primary navigational system. You are entering the age of consciousness. It is time to accept that you are a multi-sensory, multidimensional being. Balance is key. It’s
important to stay grounded, as you understand your relationship with everything, even the invisible. When faced with conflict, calm the mind and trust yourself.

Love and relationships
You are being asked to follow your intuition in matters of the heart. Stay playful and keep laughing.

Work and finances
There is an abundance of opportunities and with your newfound understanding of yourself. The world is your oyster.

Follow your dreams.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)


Cancer, Horoscope 2020

This year is all about letting go of things that don’t serve you. And what doesn’t serve you is fear-based overthinking. You have such deep compassion for the world and such wonderful intentions but when it comes to yourself, you lack
patience. This year you have the opportunity to work towards self-love. It is wonderful to give but be aware of where you might be over-giving. Let others give to you even if you are more comfortable being generous, being the giver, the healer, and the rescuer. In life, one sometimes overlooks the importance of receiving gracefully and with gratitude, without diminishing oneself or trying to deny ones vulnerability. When you find the balance between giving and receiving, you will find the balance between your physical and emotional world. This will allow you a deeper perspective and give you the patience to deal with yourself and others peacefully. Then you can give up the
old stories that have you convinced that you have to do everything alone with no help.

Love and relationships
Sometimes we feel trapped by external circumstances or our responsibilities to others, and sometimes we are controlled by our addictions and fears. No matter what the conflict, it’s time to break free. Remember when you take emotional responsibility for yourself only then can you be of service to others.

Work and finances
Do not make assumptions; be open to possibilities that seem to be outside rational expectations. Find new ways of communicating, and trust your inner guidance.

Your horoscope 2020 says stop worrying! Everything will be OK.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)


Leo, Horoscope 2020

Your cards filled me with warmth. You have some great new beginnings this year, which also means that there is an
opportunity to let go of baggage. What’s done is done; the past is where it should be. Your horoscope 2020 says there’s huge potential for joy and you already know how to harness this energy.

This year you will be every bit the social butterfly you are, spending time with like-minded people, networking, partying, which presents further opportunity. You see, we humans learn about life by telling stories and creating new ones based on our shared experiences. Eventually, after repeating a story often enough, it becomes our main story, the one we use to define ourselves. Make it a point to take some time out for you from the festivities so you can review your stories and ask yourself questions like — why do I tell this story? Is this really my story? What do I truly want? This will propel you towards stories of empowerment, of wisdom and gratitude and love, very high vibrations indeed.

Love and romance
The thoughts in your head become your reality. It’s time to shift those thoughts to a higher vibration, moving on from fear and insecurities to playfulness and love. Believe in miracles and they will happen.

Money and finances
It is time to break free from self-dooming prophecies of lack. Remember, you are an abundant and empowered being. Trust yourself.

Keep your vibration high by being compassionate to yourself. Take special care of you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)


Virgo, Horoscope 2020

2020 is about massive transformation, freeing yourself from conditioning, making decisions, and a year with generally very high energy.

Endings and beginnings is the recurring theme for this year. For you, these endings bring an opportunity to start afresh, to uncoil some destructive patterns, and to free yourself from old conditioning. Sometimes we get so caught up in running against time, we actually forget we are magical beings who can manifest abundance. Instead, we end up manifesting more fear and lack because that’s where our attention is. Moving forward you can only manifest your desired results by being focused on them; after all, you create your reality based on where your attention is at. Change is hard but inevitable — the best way to deal with it is to slow down, relax, and de-stress by listening to music. Once you’re calm, you’re able to take responsibility of your life and manifest from a space of
awareness, clarity, and patience. Make a decision to give yourself some mental space to create joyfully. And remember, it’s never too late for a new beginning.

Love and relationships
Romance is a state of mind. It’s a high vibrational, playfully creative energy. Release any fears you have about love or being loved. Bask in the knowledge that you are a loveable person and that you have great capacity for love. And don’t underestimate the therapeutic effect of music.

Work and finances
It is time to choose the authentic you. You may ask questions like Why do I do this? Am I following my authentic path? If you feel angry or resentful, it is time to make your own path. Keep your temper, not because anger is bad but because it’s a powerful emotion when channelised in the right direction. Stay focused on what you want.

Be gentle on yourself. Have patience in the knowledge that everything is occurring in perfect timing.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, Horoscope 2020


You represent balance, and therefore you are always striving for it, which is a good thing. You love it when people around you are happy and you do everything in your power to make them happy. But when it comes to your own happiness you don’t always get back as much. Is that because people don’t give as much as you do? Or is it because you don’t receive comfortably? Or is it because you have high expectations? Or is it something else? Whatever the reason, if you feel that in some aspect of your life, you are not emotionally satisfied, then it’s time to do something about it but you seem to already know that! Satisfaction is so important and you deserve so much for all that you have to give. Your desires count and you are worthy of them. They are essential for co-creating your world. Then why not give your desires as much importance as you give others?

2020 is all about cycles completing and for you there is great transformation. Balance your desires with the demands around you. Don’t accept mediocrity in your life and don’t let your fears and feelings of guilt dim your shine. You are a creative being so go, be creative.

Love and relationships
You can expect to find harmony in family relationships and if there is conflict then try to objectively stand back from your situation and find a humorous twist. Laughter will help you see your life from a new perspective so that you can
receive creative insights and solutions. Keep laughing!

Work and finances
You are on the precipice of change and you are longing for a new adventure or you’re very comfortable where you are but you’re still longing for adventure. Be ready to take on any challenge for new experiences.

Heal with water. Connect to water in any way that you like to recharge and achieve emotional balance.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, Horoscope 2020


We come into this world to live these lives and learn our lessons. Some lessons are harder than others but sometimes it’s your reaction to the lesson that makes it harder than necessary. This year, the theme is transformation and Scorpio you are the sign of transformation. It’s time to embrace the changes as they happen. Be bold and take risks, follow your inner wisdom and unleash your adventurous spirit.

If you notice old patterns emerging within you or your environment, don’t despair; just find new ways of looking at old things and conflict resolved! Scorpio, you have very deep emotions and in the depths of your deep emotions you tend to hold on to things. The energy of this year encourages you to find the strength to let go of those things (and you have no shortage of strength). There is also an emphasis on clarity in communication. Learn how to ask for your needs to be met. The first step is to admit out loud that you have needs! The second step is to ask for them to be met, and the third step is to allow the other person,
organisation or the universe to respond.

Love and relationships
You are encouraged to stand up for yourself if someone is being unfair. You will not tolerate nonsense and you will no longer be intimidated. Surprise yourself with your power but keep your temper.

Work and finances
Don’t give your power away to others as this triggers your feelings of vulnerability. Understand that things feel daunting only because you give them power over you. Keep your head in the game and make a choice to feel safe.

Don’t sweat the small stuff. You have nothing to fear; in fact fear should fear you.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)


In 2020 you are gathering your magic to welcome a new beginning. Coming up to this point may have been a challenge (as 2019 was for many of us) but now you are ready to ‘unstick’ stuck energies. You are stepping into a new version of your life, getting to tell a new story as you create it. For many of you, the form of what you are growing has yet to take shape. Still it’s exciting to dive in and allow that new version of life to slowly appear. It’s natural to feel a bit of a push and pushback whilst working with your new partner, the universe. But remember, the universe has your back so have faith. It’s time to trust yourself and your inner wisdom. This year, there is victory through tackling inner conflict. It’s important to remember to stay focused on what you want to achieve. Remove your focus from past disappointments. Keep an unwavering focus on your target.

Express yourself creatively, the arts will allow you to release the past joyfully and will give you more energy to create your future. The universe, the Earth, life, and everything exists because of a natural balance; in order to create, you are also being asked to maintain that balance.

Love and relationships
As a pattern, if you have been looking outside of you for satisfaction, in material possessions or relationships, then in 2020 it’s time to look within. That’s where you will find all the answers. Detox your mind of negative thoughts and attitudes. Believe in the power of healing through intention.

Work and finances
Know where you wish to go in life. Set clear goals — clarity is the key to manifest. You are very good at giving people advice — it’s time to follow your own.

All the magic of the universe exists in the here and now. Keep your awareness in the present.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn, Horoscope 2020


2020 is the year of closing old chapters and uncovering new and exciting ways of existing in this world. In order to welcome the new energy, it is very important to make space by letting go of unnecessary baggage. This year, Capricorn you are asked to pay more attention to yourself and your inner child. Like all children, your inner child also needs some attention to grow and prosper. Do you feel like you need to do all the work and fix everything for everyone or you may have no value? Maybe you think you need to control everything or nothing will get done. You may think you need to conform to what others expect of you or to choose a course of action to manipulate the outcome. The choices you make are what lead you to victory but in order to make the right choices you need to step out of your comfort zone. Try something different, set that boundary, and delegate responsibility to another. Ask for your needs to be met. With the major Arcana The Emperor, you’re being asked to review your relationships with control and to understand why that relationship is the way it is — it’s a card of stability and security but be mindful of releasing judgment about yourself and others.

Love and relationships
In relationships it’s important to honor your true feelings. Stay calm and prioritise yourself. Music has the ability to heal and relax, so use the gift of music to calm yourself before you set out to fix the world.

Work and finances
A wondrous opportunity is going to break through your ordinary reality giving you a chance to change your world and perception forever. There is no place for fear in your new world.

Use the energy of love and not fear as a guidance system this year and watch the magic unfold.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, Horoscope 2020


Are you taking yourself and your problems too seriously? Perhaps you are mixing up the fear of the future and the disappointments of the past and garnishing it with some impatience, a deadly concoction of lack and dissatisfaction. This kind of energy blocks forward movement, causes indecisiveness and reduces self-confidence.

2020 is a year of change and transformation. Allow yourself to drop any heaviness you’re carrying to purge outdated beliefs and conditioning. Aquarius you are the visionaries of the zodiac. In order to envision a glorious future, you must first fix you now. It is time to take a break, to trust that you are blessed and protected. Honor your body, energy levels and emotions. When you stop fixating on what has been making you heavy-hearted, is when you can
perceive the magic around you. It is time to have fun. The universe is inspired by your laughter and it’s a must that you enjoy yourself in order to envision and manifest a glorious future. Remember how ridiculously and delightfully giddy you can be; be silly, be goofy, let it all hang loose, then return to the world refreshed and ready to receive. You will realise that your perceived problems were daunting because you were heavily focused on them but once you raise
your vibration by being playful and having fun, you will find creative solutions with which to move forward.

Love and relationships
In 2020, when the going gets tough, take a break. You’re an intellectual sign but relationships can’t always be approached only with the mind. Give yourself space to solve the problem.

Work and finances
Don’t be afraid to be you. You are unique, kind, compassionate and you are fair. You must embrace all that makes you different and become the very best you that you can be.

Trust your inner wisdom. Remember how powerful you are and have a super fun year.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)


2020 is full of opportunities to heal, grow and make your dreams come true. It seems you have some secrets or secret desires hidden away. It’s time to review these for they might carry hints of anger, shame, resentment and guilt. This year, it’s time to forgive and let go; forgive others for what they have done or not done. Forgive yourself for what you think you have done or not done. Don’t be afraid to dive into your hidden emotions. It’s time to clean up and make space for all the opportunities you are receiving.
As for your hidden desires, go for it! Don’t let fear of the unknown, indecisiveness, other people’s issues, or lack of faith in yourself stop you. In fact, faith in yourself. Trust your intuition — it’s the voice without fear. Allow it to guide you and go with the flow. Remember everything is occurring in perfect timing but the work must be done. Going that extra mile to achieve your dreams will reap big rewards. If you feel overwhelmed, then stop worrying and prioritise.

Love and relationships
You may need intervals of quiet time and space to contemplate or meditate or dream. Take time out to connect with and heal the relationship with yourself and all the other relationships in your life will find balance.

Work and finances
2020 is rich with abundance and opportunities. Don’t be afraid to take risks. This is not a year to procrastinate.

Relax your mind; everything is going to be OK. It’s time to go for it!
