2020 Astrology Forecast: Overview of the Year Ahead

2020 Astrology Forecast: Overview of the Year Ahead

In episode 234 astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan provide an overview of the astrology of 2020, and discuss the major planetary alignments that will happen over the next year.

There is a lot of major planetary activity next year, including a Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, Venus and Mars both retrograde for several months, and an epoch-defining Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius.

We got together to record this episode in person in our studio in Denver in late November, right in the middle of a week of recording several other episodes.

  • Did I miss it or did no one mention that Uranus goes direct on Jan. 10 the day of the lunar eclipse opposite the Saturn/Pluto exact conjunction that weekend?
    Uranus stationery direct squares the new moon several weeks later. Adding a Uranus station to that extremely powerful eclipse and new moon makes a huge difference. And I believe the Jan. new moon in early Aquarius is conjunct the upcoming Saturn/Jupiter conjunction. It couldn’t be more perfect!

  • Question about this: “For approximately 200 years at a time, the Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions occur in signs of the same element. ” Had not been aware of this 200 year cycle. My references show the previous Jupiter-Saturn conjunction formed between November 1980 and August 1981, in the first ten degrees of Libra (Western Astrology).

  • Holy crap you guys are good. Today is May 31, 2020 and you have been bang on, sadly, for all of it. It also makes me very trepidacious for what’s yet to come in 2020. Thank you so much!!! This is so helpful. My Sun/Merc is combust (7th house, 21 & 20 deg cancer). All of it, but the beginning , middle and end of July has been constantly on my mind. Anyway! The other reason I wanted to send a message was to ask, what is the app you use? You mentioned it in the episode. I’ll be definitely getting the ephemeris you suggested as well. Thanks a TON!!! I’m looking forward to listening to so many more of your episodes!
