For reference, Winter season is from December 21, 2019 to March 19, 2020. Spring is from March 20 to June 20. Summer is from June 21 to September 21 and Fall is from September 22 to December 20.
Career: Job change can be seen sometime in Fall period for those who are unhappy with their current workplace. Weigh job offers clearly because the grass may not be greener on the other side for some. Check the fine print in your contract! For others, the new job is the parachute you’ve been waiting for to get away from unfulfilling work. Those intending to stay with their current company, watch out for stagnancy and get involved in more creative projects to boost your profile with upper management. Overall positive year for money and those in the creative field.
Wealth: Good news for finances! Some will receive an increase in income during the Summer period. But for others, no dip in finances is foreseen. Those who had financial difficulties in 2019 will find some reprieve in 2020. As always, be careful not to overindulge.
Lovelife for singles: There may be an opportunity for love during the first quarter of 2020 that you may pass up on then regret later. They’re never coming back again. Sure they are not your usual “type” but why not give them a chance? Clearly, your past patterns didn’t work out. Your relationship potential this year depends heavily on fixing past relationship issues—which stems from your own issues that need dealing with.
Lovelife for couples: Drama alert—fights, ego, and a weak foundation in love will take its toll in 2020. If it’s not working out, time for a clean break. Leave for good reason, not because of a third party. Working things out? Be brave enough to sit your partner down so you can meet eye-to-eye and fix your individual issues for the betterment of the relationship.
Career: Tough year for work in the first half of 2020, with victory seen towards the end of Spring. Be a problem solver at work to avoid being overlooked by your boss. Problematic situations involving miscommunication at work that you’ve had to deal with in 2019 will return in the Summer. Make a show of your achievements to boost your profile at work.
Wealth: Avoid risky investments as loss is seen in Fall and Winter period. Walk away from bad financial decisions or investment that may pop up in the Summer. Some reprieve in Spring, but careful financial management is needed for the rest of the year.
Lovelife for singles: Single and ready to mingle? Check that your communication isn’t being misunderstood because there's a big potential for coming off harsh or cold. Stay away from individuals with unhealthy connections to their ex—they’ll be popping up to mess things up. Avoid giving in to temptations with attached individuals—things can get beyond messy for your image. Flirt up a storm in Spring and don’t mess things up in the later half of the year.
Lovelife for couples: Communication is key to solidifying the union in 2020. Keep the love playful and don’t fight dirty. Words can be cutting this year. For some, a temptation may pop up in the Fall, but don’t ruin what you have now. For those in an unhealthy relationship, someone new will pop up in Fall but will only pursue you romantically next Spring. They aren’t ready for the drama yet.
Career: Starting a new venture? Spring is the best time to go for it so you can maximize luck during the first quarter of 2020. Check the fine print to make sure you’re not getting bamboozled out of your deal. Drama, pay freeze, and clashes with colleagues may dominate the second half of 2020. So, keep a cool head, stay out of everyone’s radar and approach disagreements objectively. A change in management or department head is seen for some, which will be a breath of fresh air.
Wealth: Extra caution with spending is required. Money issues will be popping up throughout the year except during Spring. If you’re expecting a pay increment at the end of the year, sadly, it’s not going to happen with your current workplace.
Lovelife for singles: Workplace romance is in the cards but tread carefully, as the saying goes: don’t dip your pen in the company ink. If you want to proceed, think things through so this won’t get messy. For some who’s been single a while, 2020 is the time to get out of the mental prison you’ve placed on yourself. You’re not as bad as you think yourself to be. Someone is noticing you, so let loose and get out there.
Lovelife for couples: Unhappiness in a relationship is seen in some couples. Get out of your fears and angers and talk things out coolly. If you’re in an unhealthy relationship where one is domineering and controlling, it’s time to cut your losses. If things are not so severe, then it’s time to reignite the spark of romance in this relationship. Remember how passionate you both were during your early days of dating? Relive those moments.
Career: Bored with work? Snap out of it. Missed opportunity to shine will have undesired effect on your reputation. For some looking to jump ship, the end of Spring will bring good news. Just don’t trash your current company to your new employer. Time to strategize on getting those sought-after assignments to boost your profile at work. You may or may not get a raise, but it definitely will give you a sense of personal fulfillment.
Wealth: Careful planning is required to reap the reward of a boost in income. For entrepreneurs, avoid overindulgences or overspending in your venture’s marketing budget around Summertime. Modest flow of revenue throughout the year, with a bigger boost towards the end of Spring. For employees, increment is directly tied to performance as perceived by your bosses - make a show of your accomplishments.
Lovelife for singles: There’s nothing wrong with being single while you put other aspects in your life in order. Potential love connection is seen towards the end of 2020. Focus on self-love and working on improving your self before a love can enter your life this year.
Lovelife for couples: Ready to take that next step in love? Start having a deep conversation with your partner to see if you’re ready to start your next chapter. Marriage? Family? New house?

You’ll receive great professional support to see you through tough times at work, but decisions have to align with your priorities and goals. Success is seen despite stumbles in early part of 2020.
Wealth: Time to prioritize what is essential and what is frivolous. Money issues will be resolved only with proper resource management.

For some, job offers will be plenty but don’t waste too much time weighing your options or they will be gone as quickly as they came. Be decisive of what you want and don’t let fear take over. You have what it takes to take your professional career to the next level. Just be careful of office communications via emails—keep nastiness to a minimum. If seen by the wrong eyes, it can spell disaster for your professional life.
Wealth: Slow growth in finances is seen this year, culminating with a modest increase towards the end of 2020. Slow and steady is better than a dip. Avoid risky and impulsive decisions when it comes to finances and investments—that will spell disaster or financial loss.
Lovelife for singles: Are you sure the one you’re with is single as you? Watch out for unscrupulous individuals in your love life. Romance is seen but use your logic to discern if they’re the right fit for where you are in your life right now. If both of your priorities align - celebrate the love.
Lovelife for couples: For some, enough is enough—perhaps being single is better than being unhappy in a relationship. It’s a positive time to move on and a much better person may enter your life in Fall. For others, remember that too many cooks spoil the broth. Forget other people’s inputs on your relationship. Reconnect with your love and lay down the foundation of what you both require to be happy.
