This Zodiac Sign Will Have The Luckiest 2020 Of Them All
By now, I'm sure you've eagerly scanned this year's sign-by-sign horoscope and know exactly how 2020 is poised to play out for your sun, moon, and rising—but just in case you haven't, here's the gist: Every sign will go through a roller coaster in the astrological arena this year, but Capricorns could have more highs than lows.
Yep, the strong and steady Sea Goat is poised to have its luckiest year in over a decade thanks to a transit in Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system and the one that influences growth and expansion.
As mbg's resident astrologers, The AstroTwins explain, "In 2020, worldly Jupiter will soar through your sign, its first visit since January 5, 2009. You may already be shining like a breakout star this New Year's Day since the red-spotted planet made landfall in your sign on December 2, 2019. Keep the momentum going! Jupiter will continue to bless you with its abundant beams until December 19."
Pluto (the planet that relates to money and power) and Saturn (which controls the realm of order and planning) will also pass through Capricorn this year. Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn are all outer planets that move slowly across the sky compared to inner planets like Mercury, Venus, and Mars, making this astral trio extremely rare. (As in, the last time it happened was nearly 1,000 years ago.)
In astrology, a planet's energy is thought to magnify in the zodiac sign it's currently planted in. This means that this year, Capricorns could experience a triple surge of expansive, lucrative, and organized energy, depending on where the Sea Goat lies in their chart.
The AstroTwins' PSA to all Caps looking to capitalize on this lucky energy? Dream big. Consider a life goal that's always felt just out of reach, and make this the year you work toward it. With the planets conspiring to build a strong foundation underneath your feet, the sky could be the limit.
If you're not sure what you want to prioritize for 2020, here are a few strategies that'll help you get clear on your grand vision:
- Decide what it is you don't want first by making a list of things to leave behind in 2019.
- Visualize the most amazing possible way you could celebrate the end of 2020. Where are you? Who are you with? What have you accomplished in the year that's passed? Tune into the details of the scene and let them guide you toward some concrete goals.
- Try out this journaling ritual for identifying purpose.
Just keep in mind that you might have to pivot right around July 5, 2020, when the full moon and lunar eclipse in Capricorn comes our way. "Eclipses reveal hidden opportunities, the kind that may be so far off of your radar that it takes some provocative (even shocking) developments to get your attention," the AstroTwins explain. "The good news is that whatever jaw-dropping events occur in early July may bring much-desired closure—or a milestone moment that you've been waiting to celebrate for more than a year."
