A new year always brings opportunities for change. When it comes to love and relationships, 2020 is going to be an interesting year for many, and you can expect to see changes in many relationship statuses. While some can look forward to making a lifelong commitment, others may find themselves ending a long-term relationship in the new year. As astrologer Beth McDonald tells Bustle, eclipses are coming and they're going to shake things up.
"As a practicing astrologer, I frequently am asked for guidance around breakups in the two weeks before an eclipse and the weeks in between them," McDonald says. "It's the dominant presenting problem during those times of year."
According to McDonald, eclipses represent an interplay of shadow and light, or the juxtapositions in our lives. It can bring clarity to situations that have been confusing, and it can bring to light things you haven't been able to see before.
"Eclipses that directly impact natal chart points within an orb of six to eight degrees will be transformational experiences," McDonald says. "Eclipses that impact your natal chart points within an orb of two degrees usually mean major life change and they can be excruciating to experience."
There are going to be six eclipses in 2020, which will affect everyone in a different way. But some signs will be more affected by it than others, and it might even cause some people to end a long-term relationship permanently. So here are the zodiac signs most likely to end a long-term relationship in 2020, according to astrologers.
