Considering what has been happening in 2020 and also the crazy number of retrogrades, many astrologers worldwide joke that the best thing that can happen in 2020 is for it to end. However, if we think about it, 2020 is actually a year full of lessons. We were taught to not take things for granted as a crisis can strike you at any time; always have a backup plan in life and save for 'rainy' days; explore your hidden skills and talents — many people became Masterchefs and aspiring dancers on TikTok in a matter of a few weeks; live in the NOW because there is such a thing as overplanning and, sometimes, we just need to let go and trust in the Universe; flexibility is the key and when necessary, PIVOT and adjust; live sustainably especially after seeing how incredible nature healed when we humans were kept indoors.

It's eclipse season and on 5 July, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn challenges you to balance between your home or family life and your career. An Eclipse throws us into reflection mode as it pushes us to think of our future and if our 'original' life goals align with our current values. You will find many changes in your priorities and that you will seek a meaningful life instead of living a life that is merely chasing status and material objects. Ready to find out what's in store for you this month? Read on.

Despite all the negativities, take this time to reflect on all the lessons learnt in the first half of 2020.


Aries ♈ 

March 21 - April 19


This month, don’t give in to overthinking. You need to take charge and be the boss of your mind instead of your thoughts being the boss of you.

Taurus ♉ 

April 20 - May 20


Something good is about to happen. Believe that the universe will bless you with its wonders very soon. Don’t doubt yourself and don't let your past issues or trauma haunt your bright future.

Gemini ♊ 

May 21 - June 20


If you have been wanting for a sign to start something, here it is. What are you waiting for? It’s time to make magic happen!

Cancer ♋ 

June 21 - July 22


We all get it. You are feeling like a hot mess considering what has been happening around you and in the world, but it is time to wear your big girl or big boy pants and clean yourself up as it’s your birthday month!

Cancers, it's your month! Seize the moment.


Leo ♌ 

July 23 - August 22


The world needs your power. Use your voice. Remember that you are talented and amazing! However, be careful not to ruffle the wrong feathers.

Virgo ♍ 

August 23 - September 22


Quiet your mind and listen. The universe is guiding you towards your next step. This month is the month of less talk and more action.

Libra ♎ 

September 23 - October 22 


Librans are known to be diplomats and natural-born salespeople. You are great with flowery words, but many will find that not genuine. Get straight to the point and say what you mean.


Scorpio ♏ 

October 23 - November 21


You have had a lot of time to peruse the internet and catch up on the latest drama. But too much screen time is making you awkward and depressed. It is time to meet people — real people — not online personalities or fake avatars.

What are your mid-year reflections?


Sagittarius ♐ 

November 22 - December 21


Somehow, your intuition is telling you that you cannot trust some people around you or that someone you know is not entirely truthful. Your sixth sense may be correct. Watch out for who you can rely on.

Capricorn ♑ 

December 22 - January 19


You may feel like many things have not been going your way. But you tried your best and for that, you need to pat yourself on the back or get a big hug. Remember, any amount of effort should always be considered good enough.

Aquarius ♒ 

January 20 - February 18


You gave up wanting to complete tasks or ticking off your bucket list for this year. But even though you've simply settled on wanting to hibernate for the rest of 2020 and sing “wake me up when 2020 ends”, you need to stay #woke as you are missing out on what the world has to offer.

Pisces ♓ 

February 19 - March 20


The world doesn’t revolve around you and your feelings. You need to stop complaining and instead, transform your pain into strength as you have the power to change the world and the situation around you. Go ahead, do it!
