ASTROLOGY with JACQUELINE BIGAR


The Year Ahead

Happy New Years! As of January 1, 2019 I will be taking readings again. Please email me if interested!


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your mind falls into a state of reverie as 2020 comes in. You are happy to facilitate others' dreams too. 2020 tosses you into the limelight no matter what age you are. Older Rams will give more time to their chosen commitments and/or community. Trust that you will be noticed whether you are a teenager or a silver-haired retiree. You have a lot to give. Promotions become a strong likelihood -- acknowledgment is a given. Many of you will transform your work and style for the better. What is clear is the importance of a pivotal relationship in your life. If single, changing your status becomes more likely. You will meet available people when out, working and socializing. Attached Rams will experience a newfound intensity with their sweetie. Situations will force you to grow and let out the star within. You will want plenty of private time at home with your immediate family. In a sense, they are the source of your energy and activity. Go with the flow after Sept. 9, 2020. Do not fight city hall.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You have become the object of some gossip over the past year, and it will continue to be so through 2020. Remember the staid, old you? Many of you have tossed that image to the wayside to reinvent yourself. If you have not gone through this process yet, start fantasizing: If you could do and be anything, what would that be? Many of you will decide to satisfy a curiosity. If at the right point in time, you could choose to continue studies in your chosen field. Other Bulls will give up being armchair travelers and take off for yonder lands. Your vision of possibilities suddenly grows by leaps and bounds. Key people in your life admire your courage to break past your conventional boundaries. You also could achieve far more professionally, as you become a more original thinker. Your new ways will be appreciated. If younger, it will be by the older, wiser adults around you; if older, from your contemporaries. Romance for the young at heart draws some very intriguing possibilities. Do not jump into any relationship. Know that your chosen one is right for you. Wait a year before making a heavy commitment. You are changing and so are your needs. You can have it all, but the path will no longer be a conventional one. Forge ahead without fear.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The winds will blow heavily around the following dates: Feb. 16-March 9, June 18-July 12 and Oct. 12-Nov. 8. Do not initiate anything until you are past these periods, although you can certainly play around with different ideas.
