2020: Pisces Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: The summary of the year resides here, while the details are below.
There is a considerable focus on your social life, networks, and business goals if you’re in business for yourself in 2020, dear Pisces. Team efforts or collaboration can be in sharp focus and successful. At the same time, sweeping changes may be in order for you to get to a place of improvement with friends, groups, or associates this year. It’s time for a clean-up of sorts so that you can live more authentically in your social life, and it’s of considerable benefit to you! It’s about making room for connections, relationships, and projects that empower you rather than consistently drain you.
This can be a year in which your connections and networks can lead to meaningful new goals, or they can take you on a beneficial path. Friends can be of practical help to you. You may take the lead of a group, start up a new and exciting endeavor, and improve your friendships and social life quite dramatically. You may be renovating from the ground up in your social life, with happiness goals, and with passion projects. Fortunately, this is one of the best years for developing close connections and kinships, and it’s excellent for connections with a team or group, new long-term initiatives, and exciting causes and missions.
As the year advances, efforts to work on a long-term venture behind the scenes can be powerful. Completing a big project can consume a lot of your time.
There can be a stable yet fulfilling friendship or cause that both grounds you and brings you joy this year. Studies, contacts, and transportation, on the other hand, tend to be less predictable, but often inspiring.
You may discover that your interests are more eclectic in 2020, and this theme is likely to build further in the coming years. Acquaintances, classmates, siblings, or neighbors may introduce surprise elements into your life. New technologies or methods can open up new experiences or channels for transportation and communication, and perhaps can bring romance or recreational and expressive channels into your life.
Your thoughts and ideas can be scattered at times, but you’re making space for connecting with your inner muse or genius. You seem to need to make your own rules this year regarding making contact, learning, studying, communicating, and handling your everyday affairs. Do watch for a complete lack of routine that results in waste rather than inspiration. However, you undoubtedly need to do things a little differently now, and with moderation, you can be wonderfully inventive.
While a new way of communicating and connecting will serve you well much of the time, when Saturn moves into your privacy sector from March 21st to July 1st and then from December 17th forward, you should watch for alienating others who may feel you’re distant or disinterested. Saturn in this area of your chart can find you dealing with endings or finishing up a major cycle of your life. Taking a hard look at what you need–and don’t need–to get your life into shape is in order in the next few years, and the “work” along these lines is only just beginning in 2020.
As 2020 progresses, there can be less focus on your social life and more attention given to your home or family life, as well as the fundamental structures of your life. It can benefit you tremendously to pour more careful and genuine attention into your domestic world. You’re also challenged to pay special attention to your work-home balance. It’s a period for approaching your career or reputation, as well as your responsibilities, in whole new ways.
The second half of the year can also find you sorting out your money, income, or belongings. Delays are likely during the retrograde Mars window from September to November, but you get the chance to go over these matters with a fine-toothed comb and make significant progress. Money matters can be tricky, but there are wonderful opportunities to sort out your income situation after some review. Motivation to increase your own income is strong now. Many benefits can come through working towards some level of financial independence. Organizing your practical affairs can help ease your mind and calm your emotions.
The Jupiter-Neptune connection this year is a subtle one but particularly helpful for you. While there can be issues that emerge requiring serious and careful thought and adjustments in 2020, this transit helps you see the benefits of your efforts, and it also inspires you to work towards your goals and dreams. It may help to see a little more compassion in your networks or with friends this year, boosting your mood and sense of purpose.

Key Events in 2020 for Pisces:
Outer Planet Transits:
Saturn conjunct Pluto in January. We’re tearing down something but we can build a better version from the bottom up. In your case, Pisces, this is about your friendships, social life, networking, sense of community, and happiness goals.
You have excellent support for rebuilding and improving things with the following transits:
Jupiter conjunct Pluto from April to November. This is a time for ambitiously and determinedly pursuing improvements as we seek greater meaning or personal significance. The drive to better ourselves is a powerful force. We might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, and this gets us over a hump, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden, overlooked, or unavailable. We should take advantage of the increased drive this transit brings, but avoid tendencies towards self-righteousness, exaggeration, and obsession. This transit generally favors big business, the law, grants, taxes, education, and commerce. Increased influence, faith, and insight are likely now.
For you, Pisces, social or material goals may come into stronger focus, and reform figures strongly now. You might decide to invest your time and energy into an ambitious new project. You can feel driven to overcome problems in your social life or to otherwise improve and enhance your connections, sense of community, and personal involvement or contributions. It’s a strong time for success in business, too. You can bemaking the connections you need or desire. It’s also a powerful time for taking the lead of a group, organizing, and starting up a new endeavor, especially an innovative one.
Jupiter sextile Neptune from February to October. Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface now. Making connections with others from a different background may figure strongly. Widening our minds through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increase and our faith is boosted. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good.
For you, Pisces, these are your two ruling planets getting along, and Neptune is in your sign, making it most personal for you. This is an inspired time for enjoying your social life and feeling a stronger purpose as a result of your interactions or new projects and plans. You feel particularly comfortable with this influence, and in your own skin.
Also this year:
Jupiter conjunct Saturn in December. This happens near the end of the year in the sign of Aquarius. In your solar chart, this transit occurs in your private, hidden sector of the soul as it happens in the sign just behind yours. It’s a time of more careful attention to your emotional and mental health needs. Weeding out outworn attitudes, situations, or projects in your life can make space for more empowering ones. Even so, simplifying things can be empowering, too.
Mars conjunct Jupiter/Pluto and then Venus trine Jupiter/Pluto in the second half of March. This is an opportunity period for communications, especially with Mercury also in your sign, Pisces. You are connecting with others in creative or romantic ways. Your initiative is strong, and contacts are exciting–even invigorating now. Experiences now can inspire and motivate you to be/do your best, particularly related to mental interests and projects. There can be opportunities to connect with someone special through groups, acquaintances, and networking. Things that you’ve previously resisted learning can suddenly become appealing and relevant. You might make connections through the internet, on the phone, or even in the neighborhood, that make you happy and boost your spirits. A creative partnership may result.
Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn all turn retrograde from May 11 to 15. Venus is retrograde in the sign of Gemini from May 12 to June 25. Venus hangs around its square to Neptune in May. At the time of the inferior conjunction, retro Venus is square Mars in early June, and then a Lunar eclipse occurs in Sagittarius. This can be a time of tension or reduced pleasure on the homefront or in close relationships, but it’s temporary and may lead to powerful fixes that improve your life from the ground up. During this period, you can feel rather torn between personal desires and plans and those of family or loved ones.
Mars is retrograde from September 9 to November 13 in the sign of Aries (pre-retrograde shadow begins July 25th). Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations are significant with money, personal possessions or belongings, or income. On a psychological plane, this can be about matters of respect and worth. The desire for more financial independence is building.
Mars square Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto from August to December. Challenges with ownership and money matters related to new ventures or friendships can be ongoing now, but you get the chance to resolve conflicts after confronting the issues. While the courage and confidence to get things going are great, you should watch for decisions that stem from restlessness.

There are some supportive, interesting developments for you this year, dear Pisces. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease that you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Pisces:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
As is evident in the above chart, there is mostly support from the outer planets in 2020 for Pisces! This doesn’t happen often. Your main challenge comes from the North Node, which is not an outer planet but rather a point, and is not particularly difficult.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Many of the outer planets are harmonizing with your sign this year, Pisces. The planets in Earth sign Capricorn (Jupiter until mid-December, Saturn part of the year, and Pluto all year) harmonize with Pisces, and so does Uranus in Earth sign, Taurus. Jupiter conjunct Pluto much of the year can create opportunities to “go hard” and pursue your desires.
Pisces is an emotional Water sign, and is also of a mutable (adaptable, flowing, flexible) quality. To you, some change is okay–you adapt! There is some obsessiveness with the Capricorn planets this year that you can certainly handle but that is not entirely up your alley.
Areas of change and occasional disruption for you in 2020 tend to be studies, personal interests, transportation, friendships, and communications. There is some pressure, as well, to balance your attention to home and career, with a special emphasis on making more time for self-nurture, family activities, and improved home routines and comfort.
This is a powerful year for friendships, happiness pursuits, teams, groups, your social life, and innovative ventures. Your confidence grows. Go big in these areas, but know your limits! Your social sector has been an area of your chart that has faced more than usual outer planet challenges for many years. This year, the pressure does continue, but you have all the tools with you to make significant improvements.
