We set intentions all year, but there’s no time like New Year’s to zero in on bold goals. Here’s how you can harness the power of your personal astrology to transform your dreams into reality in 2020.
Even if you are averse to resolution, it is hard not to be inspired by a new calendar year. There is a natural desire to train your eyes for self improvement and set New Year’s intentions.
From swapping dinners for clean meals to the sidewalk for a morning run at least three times a week, resolutions have one rep for being extremely health-conscious – but they can look a little different. Think about it: defending this business proposition to push you away from a professional routine, ending that toxic friendship, deleting outdated dating apps, and trying to find someone offline or moving somewhere new and revitalizing.
Regardless of how your resolutions look, making large changes can seem daunting. As a result, you may find that you could use some serious help to follow your proposed game plans. So why not consider the insight of the planets?
Your sun sign is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your personal astrology, but it plays a significant role in who you are, shaping your sense of identity, identity, individual style, vitality, self esteem, and confidence. This is especially apparent during the season of your sign. If you identify with your sun sign, you probably feel even more alive, confident in yourself and as if your personality were even more amplified than usual during the season.
The qualities of your sun sign can also provide especially relevant information. Each element (fire, earth, air, water) has a fixed sign (Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio), a cardinal sign (Aries, Capricorn, Libra, Cancer) and a mutable sign (Sagittarius, Virgo, Gemini, Pisces). ) The fixed crew is known to be the most likely to be resolute, often refusing to change their view or plan; the cardinal group tends to initiate projects and offers an overview but may not be followed up; The changeable club is the most adaptable but also changeable.
You can make the most of the energy associated with your planetary wiring at any time – so why not use it to help set the tone for a new year? Here, how you can harness the power of your signal to set your resolutions by 2020 (and every year thereafter).
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Your final resolutions are … anything that makes you feel like you’ve “won” a competition, as your dominant planet is action-oriented Mars (named for the god of war). This can be literal (such as training and running a race) or figurative (feeling as if you have helped a colleague by letting your lighted field over theirs). You also get along with physical goals by nature, so consider an aggressive resolution that improves your health, such as finally attending a kickboxing class regularly.
Traits to enjoy: Your ardent passion, pioneering nature and the ability to think on your feet
Caution: Immerse yourself impulsively into something you really don’t want to see; impatience that may restrict follow-up; quick temper, which can hurt your game.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Her final resolutions are … intentions that reflect her love of art, beauty, sensuality, comfort and safety. Its dominant planet is Venus, which oversees romance, money, beauty, and relationships of all kinds; therefore, the resolutions fueled by these themes can be particularly powerful and motivating for you. Maybe you are trying to clutter your space, turn it into a real commitment, or train and mark a position that will pay off.
Traits to enjoy: Your practical perspective, methodical ability and tenacity
Beware of: Hardhead (which is related to being the most resolute or stubborn fixed ground signal); occasional lack of attention that may result from wanting to avoid discomfort; being driven by materialism to deeper and more satisfying goals
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Your final resolutions are … related to how you express yourself and connect with others, thanks to your ruling planet Mercury, which oversees communication, transportation, and technology. Everything that feeds your perpetually heightened sense of curiosity, feels social and mentally stimulates you is bound to be a winner. Build your social followers by signing up for this network conference, attending an online class to improve your professional skills or make new friends and improve your fitness by trying out different fitness studios.
Traits to enjoy: Your communication skills (obvi), adaptability (which is related to being the changeable air signal, also known as relaxed) and inquisitiveness
Beware of: lack of attention and ability to change (which can make it hard to focus on your goals and strategies to achieve them) and occasional punctuations that can get you into detail and keep you from seeing the big picture
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Your final resolutions are … charged with emotion, as you are ruled by the moon, which oversees emotional identity and our most innate needs. You are deeply sentimental and sincere at your core, often motivated to nurture and care for others. You can solve all the chronic relationship problems that stress you. Focusing on methods (such as meditation or therapy) that can help you become more focused on your own feelings can also seem empowering.
Traits to enjoy: Your emotional intelligence, general creativity and compassion
Beware: Allow a dark and thoughtful mood to pull you off course; refusing to open up about their emotional battles, even when they may be inhibiting their progress; be inclined to enjoy only the beginning of a project, as opposed to your entire experience (as a result of being the cardinal water sign)
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Your final resolutions are … passionate, positive and fueled by self-confidence. Ruled by the image-conscious sun, you are driven by opportunities to command the limelight. Chances are that you would like to be recognized as a leader or attract some level of fame. Be the owner of it, seeking the leadership or influential role that suits you best. You also tend to offer tons of enthusiasm and energetic light to those who matter most to you, so consider resolutions related to ensuring that your relationships are reciprocal – and that you are treating yourself the same way.
Traits to enjoy: Your optimism, passion and charisma
Beware of: Hanging in a narrow, limited view of what your game plan should be (a lack of being the steady fire signal); self-confidence that turns to self-centeredness and prevents you from seeing the big picture
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Your final resolutions are … detail oriented, service oriented and health conscious. Ruled by the Mercury communicator, you love to gather all the information before outlining a strategy. Virgin also rules the sixth house of daily routine and health. It’s all about self-improvement – your well-being, how you take care of others, your professional skills – so that resolutions are more like daily versus yearly. For this reason, your first year of the year intentions may be more deserving of a well-deserved break, figuratively (work to contain this self-criticism) or literally (get off the list and take a vacation now!).
Traits to be harnessed: Your ability to research and plan ahead, your analytical thinking process that helps you solve problems, and your considerate heart that often guides you to do what is right for the greater good.
Beware of: perfectionism, thinking too much, and being overly sensitive (probably as a result of thinking too much, thanks to your Mercury-ruled brain shapes) – all this can put the conversation into action or take action.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Your final resolutions are … guided by your key principles of balance and connection with others, for your dominant planet is beauty-loving Venus. In terms of a health goal, you deal with resolutions that address your inner balance (such as working with a holistic mind document about your hormonal balance). Libra rules the seventh house of the partnership, so you will also do well to make moves to strengthen friendships, work relationships or a compromised romance. Anything that involves letting your inner social butterfly shine will surely have a lasting appeal. You may also want to change the ball in your creative endeavors as it is naturally attracted to self expression through various art forms (dance, music, theater, makeup).
Traits to enjoy: Your social grace, imagination, diplomacy
Beware: Indecision (#airsignproblems), repressing emotions that would best be treated with early passive-aggressive behavior that may occur as a result of a desire to avoid confrontation at all costs – and this may discourage you.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Your final resolutions are … razor-focused and related to entering into your own power and magnetism. Ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation, you are often motivated to evolve in ways that are not necessarily visible to the naked eye, but are more related to psychology or connection to others on a deeply intimate spiritual level. Focusing on a challenging career goal (such as getting recognition or a higher position at work) can be exciting, but you would do the same to choose a resolution that supports your emotional well-being, perhaps easing control over the reins and seeing where the universe takes you.
Traits to enjoy: Your leadership skills, dedication and ability to see the many complex mental and emotional layers of any situation.
Beware of: Obstinacy (like the steady sign of water, you tend to prick your heels), obsession and secrecy, which can make you resist change and keep you from opening up promising new information and approaches that could drive success.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Your final resolutions are … favorable to your endless thirst for knowledge and adventure. Ruled by Jupiter, you are used to thinking that bigger and bolder is usually better and, as ruler of the ninth house of higher learning and adventure, you are on a life mission to broaden your horizons with every step. For these reasons, it is a no brainer to decide to travel more, choose a new and exciting area of study or connect more philosophically with the people in your life. You also enjoy entertaining and bringing joy and laughter to others, but you will do well to offer yourself the same level of joy and warmth.
Traits to enjoy: Your propensity to take risks, express your opinion, and absorb new information
Beware of: Restlessness, recklessness or extremes, which may compromise your ability to stay the course.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Your final resolutions relate to good old-fashioned and hard work. Ruled by Saturn, the foreman planet that oversees rules and regulations, you are led to keep your nose on the whetstone, making a slow and steady effort on a mission to reach the peak of your own personal mountain (as well as its symbol, the mountain goat). But because you are constantly focused on the practical steps you need to take, your New Year’s resolutions can be a great opportunity to break free from your traditional career or health goals. You may want to find new ways to infuse your life with fun, lightness, relaxation, and self-care. Frame it as a different kind of work – for your happiness.
Traits to enjoy: Your unity, discipline and pragmatism
Beware: Leaning too much on conservative approaches, allowing yourself to be overwhelmed (and potentially resentful as a result), stoicism
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Its final resolutions are … progressive, innovative and humanitarian. As the eleventh house ruler of the network, you are a natural team participant and often think more about what is best for your community or people globally compared to you as an individual. Meanwhile, your dominant planet, the game Uranus, prompts you to fight convention at every step. For this reason, you may not want to set a resolution or follow a peculiar and unexpected approach. You may want to learn about the science of CBD for your wellness routine, how to program the app you want to exist but don’t have yet, or fuel your humanitarian impulses by getting involved in a local campaign or charity.
Traits to enjoy: Your open mind, sympathy and originality
Beware: Feeling you need to be detached or following a non-traditional route to succeed
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Your final resolutions are … carried by your deeply felt emotions, creativity and intuition. Ruled by Neptune, the planet of imagination and dreams, you tend to be artistic, and your greatest inspirations come from your feelings – something that often is. Your best resolutions will support your ability to identify and work with your sometimes overwhelming empathy for healing others and yourself. You will also do well to stick to intentions related to sharing what is in your heart through performance, writing, art, or other form of self-expression.
Traits to enjoy: Your dream that can easily be translated into impressive creative work, empathy, sensitivity
Beware: Getting so wrapped up in the dream state that you struggle to maintain a sense of rational thinking, relying too much on escapism or drowning when you are feeling depressed
