Everyone wants to begin the new year on a good note. It's a time for fresh starts, resolutions, and looking ahead to what the next 12 months may have in store. But for a few zodiac signs, the beginning of 2020 will be a bit difficult due to what's going on in their astrological charts.
"Generally, the planets that cause the most upheaval are Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus," Emily Ridout, MA, a professional yoga and astrology teacher, tells Bustle. "Saturn rules the creation of boundaries and restrictions. When Saturn passes through your sign, you’re likely to experience external restrictions that you can’t control." It can lead to frustrating situations, and a feeling of being stuck.
"Pluto rules over permanent transformation," Ridout says. "If you’ve ever faced permanent transformations [like a birth, death, or even a graduation] then you know how difficult this can be." And Uranus is the "chaotic" planet, she says, which can bring sharp, sudden shifts to your life.
"Whenever these three planets pass through your chart, you’re bound to experience feelings of helplessness, or a loss of control over the direction your life is heading," Ridout says. But that doesn't mean you're going to feel this way forever, or that the rest of 2020 will be a mess.
"You have control over one thing, and that is yourself," she says. "Even though these transits can cause a rocky start to your decade, don’t lose heart because the wheel of life is always spinning, and what seems like chaos will soon come back into order [...] If you face the challenges that arise, you’ll transform into someone strong, resilient, and capable who will be even more potent when these transits get easier." Here, the four signs who may have a rocky start to 2020, according to astrologers.
