We can all agree on one thing without exception: 2020 is a goddamn pain in the ass.
This year is going to be one low blow after another. A short, painful recap: On January 1st, a zoo in Krefeld burns and numerous monkeys die, bush fires in Australia blaze for weeks, the coronavirus breaks out in Wuhan and has turned the entire life of all people on earth upside down to this day, mankind must have one World War III fear, Ukraine aierplane crash in Iran.
Basketball icon Kobe Bryant, his daughter and 7 other people die in a helicopter crash, George Floyd is innocently killed by police violence and brings up numerous other heartbreaking murders like Breonna Taylor’s and a huge racism debate, Then there is the Megxit, the mega-scandal over the meat industry and the explosion in Beirut, which claimed numerous victims.
And the rest of the year, that’s for sure, has some intense and rare planetary constellations in store for us, which will put us to the emotional test.Spoiler: The good news comes at the end.
Astrologers Expectations For The Rest Of 2020
1. Mars is retrograde
Unfortunately, “Mars retrograde” doesn’t sound as fancy as “Mars Retrograde” – but I can tell you, it means no good. In general, “retrograde” means exactly what it suggests: A planet is moving against its actual (right-hand) main direction of rotation. The rewind will last from September 9th to November 13th. What that means? In general, Mars is considered to be a very aggressive planet and “rules” over our most primordial instincts: anger and sexuality. Ergo, to put it bluntly, precisely these issues such as suppressed anger and feelings, loss of control, but also weakness and indolence will come to the surface, according to astrologer Narayana Montúfar to Bustle – that mainly leads to one thing: frustration!
2. Even more violent: Mercury will soon be reversing too.
Even more suboptimal: On October 13th, the “Mercury Retrograde” that everyone dreaded starts. She is, so to speak, the bogeyman among all returns. It is not for nothing that a trillion memes buzz around the net about the struggle that this entails. Mercury, the planet of thought and communication, moves back about 3 times a year for about three weeks each time. But the next return period will be of particular importance: It overlaps in time with the Mars retrograde. And since the Mercury return also begins in Scorpio (the darkest sign of the zodiac), according to astro experts, this means on the one hand double frustration and on the other hand that a few unsightly secrets could come to light. And not just on a personal level, because now let’s think for a moment
That falls exactly IN THE WEEKS BEFORE THE US ELECTION CAMPAIGN. Even more ironic: Mercury is expected to be stationed on the day of the election campaign on November 3rd. “Since Mercury rules over logistical issues of communication, timing, clear thinking, information sharing, numerical calculation and much more, it is unfortunate to hold major elections during a Mercury retrograde period. Given what is at stake, this really is a drama.
Things like the number of votes, the sharing of more precise information and the making of logical decisions can all be affected, ”says Bustle.
3. Mars, Pluto and Saturn are up to evil
Now it’s getting a little more complicated, so we’re trying to make it as simple as possible. “One of the main reasons Mars retrograde will be so intense is that it will enter into dedicated, distinct formations with two vicious planets that correlate with the life-changing, challenging themes this year: Saturn and Pluto,” says Montúfar
Until December – that is really the rest of the year – Mars will have such a difficult relationship with other planets, which can manifest itself in aggressive power struggles, structural changes within society, internal and external conflicts and difficulties in achieving goals.
Incidentally, we already had this Mars-Saturn-Pluto combo a few months ago: at the beginning of the year. Astrologers even blame this constellation for triggering the pandemic. The expert fears: “It may well be that we will be confronted with issues such as fear and isolation again in autumn, but this time they could also be accompanied by parts of aggression, social unrest and even war.” .
4. The Age of Aquarius is ushering in – after 400 years!
The Age of Aquarius “- what does that mean? Simple: Jupiter and Saturn – the two largest planets in the solar system and representatives for sociality, authority and leadership – will align themselves for the first time in 400 years under the sign of Aquarius, which people have longed for for years and decades, also called “the big one Conjunction”). This is considered the greatest cosmic event of the year. Sound like good news, right? And it is!
Astrologer Aaya Samadh explains to Bustle, “This great connection will mark the beginning of many new advances in technology, medicine and ideas – and we will also focus more on humanitarian issues as Aquarius is the sign of humanitarian aid. If you thought that had happened by now, you can expect a lot more after the alignment of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius in December. “
