Satiating success requires a rich inner life
The beginning of 2020 makes clear the importance of two things; realizing your most pressing professional goals and having the cornerstones of your foundations firmly in place. Satiating success requires that you have a rich inner life. Worldly success is made sweeter when it’s connected to something deeper. While you are working away at all the aspects of your career that you care most about, make sure not to lose connection with what keeps you cozy and comforted. This may require you to do a little reckoning with the past, and in the process, have you forgiving yourself for the mistakes you made. Commit to giving yourself the chance to do better.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
Take the time you need before responding
Eclipse Season asks you to ponder your reasons for being on your current path. Are you trying to reach the goals that give your life meaning, or are you trying to impress, please, or win the respect of others? If the second is true, not much joy can be had. The clearer you are about what you are devoting your days to and why, the more you’ll feel like you are developing a self-respect that cannot be corrupted no matter what the circumstances of your current situation are l. Come mid-month, help yourself find your way around any difficult conversations by taking the time you need to respond. Let no one rush you and let no fear impede your honest self-expression.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
Get real about your numbers
2020 is begging you to get real about your numbers. What you owe and what is owed to you matters; right down to the dollar and cents, to the minute details and the easy-to-gloss -over-data. The lessons that you learn through your financial life and professional collaborations will help you to find a balance between what you possess and what others bring to the table. Eclipse Season first reveals the ideas about money and abundance that you have inherited, and then it reveals the difference between making financial decisions out of fear or making them from a place of power. Risks are part of any good growth cycle, but be calculated about the ones you take.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
2020 starts off by shining the spotlight on you
2020 begins by shining the spotlight upon you, encouraging you to take risks that will make a mark on the world. Over the past 2-years, you’ve been asked to work through a million and one interpersonal issues. This timeframe has been encouraging you to consistently show up, and in doing so, learn how to build with others through all the ups and downs of dealing with other humans. The New Year encourages you to continue investigating which partnerships are built to last, which have the structural fortitude to succeed, and which are just an energy drain. Make time for the folks that bring you solutions and that never shy away from the opportunity to work through the challenges that life serves up.
Leo & Leo Rising
Focus on what thrills and funds you
In 2020, your drive to accomplish epic amounts at work is at an all-time high. Focus on what thrills you, funds you, and helps you hone your skills. The year brings with it an avalanche of important work-projects for you to tend to. and in order to not get wiped out by them all, you must balance your effort with dedicated down-time. Let your adrenals refill. Procrastination is productive and intelligent. Our urge to wander around instead of getting right to it is usually a signal that a deeper creative process is occurring, one that needs time we aren’t giving it. Unplugging isn’t always easy, but if you are going to safely, joyfully, accomplish even half of the things you are setting out to in 2020, it is imperative.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
Serve your creations the best of what you have to offer
The beginning of 2020 asks you to understand the connection between your creative projects and the audience that will receive them. What you want to bring to life may or may not be understood by the masses, but your job is to be dedicated to your creations, no matter the level of applause they attain. There are moments in life that teach us how to be more committed to ourselves than we are to being liked by others. It is that moment. The creative visions that demand to be realized by you are here for a reason. They want to help you shake things up, take the path less traveled, and take the most intelligent risks available. Trust the process, no matter how bumpy.
Libra & Libra Rising
Eclipse Season’s emotional tides have an intense undertow
The first eclipse of 2020 shines a light upon your career. This success can look good on the outside, but only you know the inner journey it took to get here. Revealing more than just your triumphs, January’s eclipse focuses on the fears that you must face in order to reach your goals. Intimately understanding their ins and outs helps you to interrupt their hypnotic impact with greater swiftness. Growing means getting better acquainted with all sides of yourself, whether you like what you find or not. This is a year that makes the hard work of uncovering the inner gems incredibly important. Whether they are easy to find, or they are encased in thick layers of past pain and regrets, they await your reclamation.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
Cleanse your mind of the beliefs that don’t support you
January’s eclipse wants you to become more intimately aware of what you hold to be true about your life and it’s possibilities. Begin the New Year by composting the misinformation you may have been fed about your capacity to love and be loved, succeed and feel successful, enjoy and be joyful. This year reminds you that a change in direction doesn’t mean that you were going the wrong way before, it just means that you are more aligned with the path your life is currently calling you to take. Your daily life and rituals help to make clear which long-term plans are worth spending 24/7 on. If it isn’t fulfilling Monday through Friday, you might want to investigate your reasons for being dedicated to it.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
2020 asks you to count your blessings
2020 asks you to claim your assets, talents, and resources. It wants you to utilize what you have and apply it in ways that support all you wish to build. The first eclipse of the decade highlights the partnerships that support this cause and calling. Those that have the integrity, drive, and grit necessary to work alongside you will become key players in the most important events of your year. Those that lack the stamina or will to develop it, will fall by the wayside. Let folks decide whether they wish to dig their own grave or carve out a path forward in partnership with you. There’s no need to convince anyone to hop on your bandwagon; you only need those that are willing to help you shoulder the load.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
Eclipse Season helps you make room for your rebirth
Eclipse Season aims to help you make room for your rebirth. Right now, clearing more space for yourself means redefining your relationships. Alignment between you and those you share your life with, those that you share your professional projects with, and those that you share your heart with, is key. Healing intimacy issues is no small task, but the beginning of 2020 begs you to get to the root of an issue. Doing so helps you to unclog lifetimes of gunk from your psychological, energetic, and emotional systems. Go easy with yourself though. Too harsh a cleanse isn’t good for the system. A little at a time is all that’s needed for this reset.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
Purge the professional patterns that impede your progress
January’s eclipse encourages you to purge the professional patterns that don’t help you get ahead. If reaching your goals doesn’t also facilitate your happiness, it’s time to reassess what you are reaching for. Your responsibilities are more easily met when you can be honest about what your work-flow is calling for. You can have your inbox empty(er) while working in ways that are more conducive to your system. The more you validate how you want to use the tools you’ve been given, the more efficiently you’ll be able to work with them. 2020 asks you to work behind the scenes for much of the year. Cherish the moments that you get to yourself; soon enough you’ll be thrust into the limelight.
Pisces & Pisces Rising
Your need for pleasure becomes crystal clear
2020 starts out with an eclipse that makes your need for pleasure, playfulness, and creative freedom explicit and crystal clear. This first foray into a new decade speaks to the depth of this need and to creative projects that want to be of use to the world at large. Showing up for your community is a huge part of your calling, but please remember that it’s not your job to morph into whatever others need from you. You were born with special gifts and talents; they are ripe and ready to get on the stage now and have their moment in the spotlight. Supporting their launch into the world will support your ability to make more of the same magic happen all year long.
