Predictions for Year 2020

By Kshitij Sharma, January 1, 2020

The yearly horoscope for 2020 based on the Moon sign or janma rashi. Please do not substitute this for the Sun sign as per Western Astrology. The following are the long-term transits of planets during 2020, which will affect various persons according to the janma rashi in their horoscope. Other transits like that for Sun, Mars and other planets would have their effect on a monthly basis. These effects will be periodically presented in the monthly horoscope section. Horoscopes on a month to month basis will continue to be much more detailed than this article. Please be on the lookout for the same and keep coming back to this site. I believe in monthly horoscopes much more than yearly ones – because they work on micro levels and much more timely details can be presented there. The yearly horoscope can be presented as a month to month presentation but that defeats the purpose.

This will also be a good period for those who are looking to get married/engaged during the year.

    Travel: While travel is indicated, you will still feel confined and hence be frustrated. You are advised to balance travel.

Still, thoughtless speech can cause a problem in the domestic environment. This is not a fortunate year for getting married and for those who are already married, misunderstanding with the spouse is indicated. You may still want to isolate  yourself from others, but it will not be the right thing to do. Staying focused will be the right thing.

    Travel: There are chances of a change of place during the year.

    Health: Cough and cold will dominate. The middle part of the year will be better, but you should be careful when both Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde. Maintaining a good diet will be the key.

    Finance, Business & Job: You will have a lot of confidence in yourself during the year. The 1st part of the year is good for making plans and then putting them to execution. While financial insecurity will linger on, you will feel like making forward progress. There can be a problem with too much confidence. There will be a temptation that must be resisted.

Both Jupiter and Saturn going through adverse transits can add to woes in the finance area. There are problems with litigation in the real estate area. A lot of increase in financial inflows cannot be expected during the year. You will miss opportunities, but you should be ready. Disappointments will have to be taken into stride. The 3rd quarter of the year will be good for promotions and better earning opportunities.

    Rahu’s transit and Ketu’s transit after September will keep the enthusiasm high and help you wade through the problems.

    Home, Family and Domestic Environment: The start of sadhe sati will reduce some of the exuberance around you that you are used to. At the same time, sadhe sati will not be very tough for you as Saturn is your sign lord. Jupiter’s 11th house transit will ensure that things are in control and will balance the start of sadhe sati. Still, the mind will be cluttered with conflict and distress, and you should seek spiritual help to remove the clutter.

Loss of job is not indicated as such in your case, but you should not take a lot of risks. If you play your cards right, this can be a year of increase in fame and promotion at the place of work.

It is up to you how you maintain the momentum throughout the year. Problems with kids are indicated, but you will get support from your spouse in raising them. Those looking to conceive will be blessed with kids.
