2020 Horoscopes We Hope Aren't True

Buckle up for your 2020 horoscopes, folks. The year is shaping up to be majorly transformational. Not only did the start of 2020 signal the beginning of a brand new decade, it kicked off a new astrological era. On December 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn are set to closely align, causing what astrologers call "the great conjunction." However, Jupiter and Saturn aren't the only planets making astrological headlines this year. On May 13, 2020, Venus will enter a retrograde period lasting until June 25, 2020. And, considering Venus is the planet of love, this retrograde will undoubtedly impact your love life, no matter your zodiac sign

In addition to the great conjunction happening at the end of 2020 and the Venus retrograde occurring during springtime, astrologers say the year will also be filled with events such as supermoons and eclipses, which are thought to bring on big changes. So, if change is something that scares you, 2020 will be the year in which you're forced to face your fears.

While change can be a good thing, it's almost never easy and, if astrologers are correct in their predictions, 2020 won't exactly be a walk in the park. As such, here's a list of 2020 horoscopes we desperately hope aren't true. 

Aries, your 2020 horoscope predicts a doomed forbidden romance

Romantic relationships between co-workers are generally discouraged, no matter one's zodiac sign. However, Aries, it's especially important that you keep your eyes on your work this year and not on that cute co-worker you've been crushing on. In fact, if your 2020 horoscope is any indication, the office love story you're daydreaming of telling your grandkids about one day is pretty much doomed to fail. 

According to astrologers and twin sisters Ophira and Tali Edut (better known as the AstroTwins), Venus will go into retrograde from May 13, 2020 to June 25, 2020 and pass through Gemini, which the AstroTwins describe as your "friendly, flirty third house." However, it's important to not get too friendly or flirt too much with people you have to see everyday. 

"The third house is the realm of coworkers and neighbors, two groups of people you should think twice about fooling around with," the Edut sisters explained on their website, AstroStyle.com. They continued, writing, "What might feel like a convenient spring fling could leave you feeling beyond awkward around your office or apartment complex."

Watch out, Taurus, your 2020 horoscope features the return of your ex

Your ex is your ex for a reason, Taurus. Sure, that may sound like the most obvious observation, but if your horoscope for 2020 is right about the year that lies ahead of you, it's likely you'll need the reminder.

According to Sophie Saint Thomas, resident astrology guru at Allure, Venus going into retrograde during the springtime will majorly affect your emotions, as Venus just so happens to be your sign's ruling planet. As Saint Thomas explained, you may not even be sure of your own feelings throughout this time.

Unfortunately, not being completely in touch with or in control of your emotions will only serve to confuse you more when a former flame makes a surprise reappearance in your life, which Saint Thomas predicts will happen. Of course, whether or not you decide to give your relationship another go is your decision to make. Maybe you'll rekindle your romance, or maybe you'll form a solid friendship with your ex. Whatever the case may be, Saint Thomas recommends making self-care a priority, writing, "The better you feel, the better decisions you will make."

Your 2020 horoscope predicts a broken heart, Gemini

According to Horoscope.com, famously flirtatious Geminis are often in love with the very idea of being in love. However, Venus — the planet of love — going into retrograde from May 13 to June 25, 2020 carries potential to take a serious toll on your Gemini heart. 

A lunar eclipse is set to occur within your partnership sector on June 5, according to Tarot.com. Considering this eclipse will be taking place in the midst of the Venus retrograde, your love life will experience a major shake-up. As Allure's Sophie Saint Thomas noted, the person you've been casually seeing may pressure you to take things to the next level during this time, perhaps even giving you an ultimatum. After all, Gemini, flirty, casual romances may be thrilling for you — but they often break the hearts of those looking to have a committed, long-lasting relationship. 

"No matter what you're looking for, you must examine why you break hearts," Saint Thomas explained. She continued, warning, "If you don't, [your heart] may be broken during this time." Basically, without some self-reflection this year, you're bound to break your own heart, Gemini.

Cancer, your 2020 horoscope says you could discover your partner's "dark side"

Venus is the planet of love, and according to Allure horoscope columnist Sophie Saint Thomas, Venus entering retrograde on May 13, 2020 will play a major part in the romance department of your life, Cancer. 

If you're in a relationship, Saint Thomas warned that this Venus retrograde period could cause you to get even more introspective than usual, perhaps leading to a discovery about your partner's "dark side." If you're a single Cancer, not unlike Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez, the Venus retrograde will still impact the way you approach dating, as the planet moving into retrograde will help you clearly see the potential warning signs and red flags surrounding your crush or first-time Tinder date. 

While it's important to listen to your gut, Saint Thomas cautioned against burning bridges during the Venus retrograde period, writing for Allure, "If you find any red flags or dealbreakers during this time, it's worth reconsidering your relationships, but it's also true that Venus retrograde can sometimes be an emotional time of discovery worth sticking through."

Leo, your 2020 horoscope advises you to "follow your heart professionally"

Leo, if you were met with opportunities to step into more influential leadership roles at work around the week of February 10, 2020, astrology expert Sophie Saint Thomas says you can credit these career moves to the supermoon found in Leo around that time. 

However, according to Saint Thomas, your bustling work life could place a strain on your personal relationships. And, if you make the mistake of sacrificing your own goals to make someone else comfortable, you'll look back on 2020 full of regret. "Someone might call you a workaholic," Saint Thomas wrote in her 2020 Leo horoscope for Allure. She continued, advising, "You'll regret it if you dial back your mission to placate a lover's insecurities. Date strong and independent people and follow your heart professionally."

Added Saint Thomas, "Throughout 2020, themes of community and shared resources arise. On a direct level, this means collaborating with coworkers and letting your lover be right in an argument for once." However, if your lover is pressuring you to step away from your promising career, don't let them sway you from your dreams.

Your 2020 horoscope predicts cancellations and postponements, Virgo

Sorry, Virgo, but your horoscope says it may be time to consider rescheduling your 2020 travel plans. Per the AstroTwins, Ophira and Tali Edut, 2020 is bound to present travel and planning problems for Virgos. This is unfortunate, especially considering Virgos are famous for their love of planning, meticulous attention to detail, and desire to be totally and completely in control of their lives, according to Astrology.com. Who can blame a Virgo for wanting everything to go as planned?

Unfortunately, according to the AstroTwins, Mars and Venus turning retrograde in 2020 will come as a blow to a Virgo planning a big event or much-needed vacation. "Black out May 13 to June 25 while Venus is in reverse, and September 9 to November 13 while Mars is off course," the AstroTwins advised on AstroStyle.com. They continued, warning that if you don't have the option of rescheduling, you should "be prepared to navigate a few curveballs if you do anything ceremonial during those dates." 

In other words, if you're planning on tying the knot this year, your big wedding blowout is at risk of unraveling before it even arrives.

Your 2020 horoscope calls for communication, Libra

The Libra, an air sign, is usually too focused on their master plan to pay much mind to the smaller details of life. As noted by Horoscope.com, these overall-view thinkers "spend a lot of time figuring out what's missing from that big picture," and often find themselves not happy if they place too much of their focus on a single project, work endeavor, friend, family member, or romantic partner. fl

According Sophie Saint Thomas, getting bored too easily puts Libras at risk of hurting their romantic partners as they navigate 2020. When Libra's ruling planet, Venus, goes into retrograde on May 13, famously flirtatious Libras will likely find themselves feeling even flirtier than ever.

According to Saint Thomas, the Venus retrograde will have Libras craving independence over the monotony of monogamy. If you're a Libra currently in a committed relationship, don't let this tricky retrograde convince you to compromise your morals and cheat on your partner. Instead, Saint Thomas advises you to communicate directly with your significant other, writing in Allure, "Tell your partner(s) that you need space and opt for ethical non-monogamy over cheating whenever possible."

Scorpio, you could reach a breaking point, according to your 2020 horoscope

Scorpios are famously intense individuals, beloved by friends and family for their loyalty and passion. However, according to AstroStyle.com, Scorpios' intense personalities often lead to aggressiveness, competitiveness, and needless obsession. If you're a Scorpio, be warned that your tendency to obsess could leave you feeling emotionally and mentally drained throughout 2020.

As Allure's astrology columnist Sophie Saint Thomas revealed in her 2020 horoscope for Scorpio, a Saturn square Sun transit will occur from Sunday, March 15 to Friday, July 10, leaving you feeling that the world has somehow turned against you, which may result in you going on to make regrettable decisions. 

"You may want to throw everything away, including your love life and your career," Saint Thomas cautioned in Allure. Advising not to make any rash decisions, she continued, "You can survive this transit by learning how to properly manage and structure your time. No, you can't do everything, but you can do some things extraordinarily well — focus on those gifts." Yes, use that famous, enviable Scorpio energy to focus on what you can control in your life rather than obsessing over what you can't.

Sagittarius, your 2020 horoscope suggests you'll make a major money mistake

While your determinedness is certainly admirable, Sagittarius, your tendency to stray from the beaten path and take risks could seriously damage your wallet in 2020. 

Astrologist Susan Miller predicts 2020 to be the year the financial gods work in your favor, telling Well+Good that those born under Sagittarius will "finally see the money they deserve." However, according to your 2020 horoscope, it's best to play it safe with your finances this year. "You could be inspired to take a riskier approach to your finances when money-minded Saturn enters Aquarius on March 21," wrote Venus Australis, resident astrology expert for Refinery29, advising you have a "backup plan in place" throughout this transit.

Responsibility is key for 2020, Sagittarius, so put your risk-taking nature on the back-burner for now. If you don't, you run the risk of hurting not only yourself, but those who rely on you. "... Understand the responsibility you have to those who look up to you," astrology columnist Sophie Saint Thomas explained in Allure. She continued, cautioning, "Your employees, colleagues, and even your friends see you as a teacher. It's your cosmic duty not to disappoint them."

Capricorn, your 2020 horoscope predicts your big secret being revealed

According to the AstroTwins, Ophira and Tali Edut, 2020 is set to be the luckiest year for Capricorns in over a decade. However, as the AstroTwins explained, the road to success won't be without its speed bumps.

On AstroStyle.com, the Edut sisters noted that Jupiter and Pluto and will be closely aligned on April 4, June 30, and November 12. While Jupiter will push Capricorns to speak their truth, Pluto will urge them to be painfully secretive. If you're a Capricorn, this means you'll find yourself stressing over how much to share with others, terrified of sharing both too much and too little. However, according to the AstroTwins, you'll soon find you're not always in control of what secrets are brought to light about your life.

"Make sure you can stand behind all of your choices, past and present," the AstroTwins advised. They continued, writing, "If you're worried yours may come back to haunt you, get ahead of the curve by exposing the story yourself. Better people should hear it straight from your lips than some nefarious 'source' who's not on Team [Capricorn]."

Aquarius, your 2020 horoscope says you may self-sabotage your relationships

If you asked your friends to describe you in one word, Aquarius, we're betting that word would be "passionate." However, as your passion prompts you to prioritize whatever task, dream, or person has captured your attention, you run the risk of being perceived as a flighty person and fair-weather friend. According to Horoscope.com, "An Aquarian has a value system that's constantly prioritizing the people who need them the most, and sometimes, that puts the people they love in a lurch." However, if your forecast for 2020 is correct, you may just be the victim of your own value system this year. 

According to professional astrologer Donna Page, "hidden enemies" will reveal themselves in 2020, and the greatest of these enemies could very well be yourself. "The ultimate hidden enemy can be part of ourselves that sabotage our efforts," Page explained on her site. 

When Venus enters retrograde from May 13 to June 25, Allure's Sophie Saint Thomas recommends using this period of self-reflection to reevaluate your negative habits so that you can avoid becoming your greatest downfall. "If you feel stuck," she wrote, "consider seeing a therapist to learn new tactics."

Your 2020 horoscope predicts a family feud, Pisces

As noted by Astrology.com, Pisces, like the super-sweet Dakota Fanning, are known to be incredibly empathic creatures. If you're a Pisces, you likely feel your emotions on a deeper level than most, while also taking on the emotions of your loved ones along the way. Your family and friends often unload their thoughts and feelings onto you, probably without much regard for your mental health. However, according to your 2020 horoscope, your patience for this type of emotional labor will run dry this year, subsequently causing a familial rift. 

Astrologist Nic Gaudette said the Venus retrograde from May 13 to June 25 will occur within your home and family sector, meaning you can expect issues to arise in these areas. "You may have less patience to deal with family or the people you view as family, and need to work on controlling yourself emotionally," he explained in an article for The Dark Pixie Astrology.

According to Gaudette, a lunar eclipse will occur in your home and family sector on November 30, bringing about some sort of resolution to your family feud. Unfortunately, as Gaudette warned, the solution to your problems could be cutting ties with a family member.
