Combinations of water (blue, black) and metal (gold, white, gray) allows fluidity, flexibility and success.

When signing a business contract, the colors gold, white, blue must be present in the direct environment during the signature. Easy for you to wear those colors in your clothing and accessories to balance the energy flow of the 5 elements.  Water prevents metal from being trapped in its ridged sharp state and brings clarity to business.

The Elders say 2020 is the Year of the Puma

 Puma means Powerful Animal in Peruvian.

Also known as the Mountain Lyon or Cougar.

Puma is the second largest cat after the Jaguar

The Puma stays behind, hidden and watches carefully.  The Puma plans before taking any action.  Puma only takes the action when he knows he will take the prey. The Puma is teaching us to do the same during 2020.

Western Astrology January 12, and 13, 2020 the powerful Saturn/Pluto conjunction is Capricorn.  Saturn and Pluto have the reputation of being the darkest, deepest and most intense planets in our solar system.  They are known to bring change, transformation endings, rebirths, awakenings and more.  2020 is filled with powerful potent cosmic alignment creating a life altering year. Pluto is about transformation, healing the shadow side, death and birth.  A potent time to restructure.

On a global level Pluto in Capricorn will put pressure on the banking systems, big corporations and the governments that are not aligned with truth.  2020 represents a journey of higher awakening

2020 Mercury Retrogrades

February 16, 2020 to March 9, 2020

June 17, 2020 to July 13, 2020

October 13, 2020 to November 3, 2020

During a Mercury retrograde, expect unexpected disturbances. Communication breaks down, computers fail so back it up before the retrograde begins.  Don’t do anything you don’t want to repeat like signing a contract, surgery, having a root canal or getting your car fixed.

Avoid purchasing things you can’t take back during this time.

Numerology, The Science of Numbers

Pythagoras, the father of our numbering system recognized numbers as mystical and spiritual.  If you ask an Astronaut what do numbers mean to you? The Astronaut would say that numbers are the language of the universe.

2020 the #4 year of a 9-year Universal Life Cycle (2+0+2+0 = 4)

The number four represents work. Use caution and do not jump into anything impulsively. During 2020 only take well thought out calculated risks.  Not a recommended year for thoughtless or unnecessary risk.

00 are symbols

The two zeros in the year 2020 are symbols rather than numbers. Mystical symbol in degrees of spiritualty and mysticism. An inherent spirituality, potential for deeper aspects of life’s purpose.

Year of Opportunity

2020, the four year, is building a firm foundation for you to stand on and build your life. What are you willing to let go of that no longer serves you: unresolved anger, the past, fear? You decide to let it go or pour it into the new foundation you are preparing.  Do you want the past in your new foundation? This is the year of opportunity to let go of all that no longer serves you and write a new story, create a new future, build a strong foundation.


If something is concerning, this is the year to take care of it.

If medical test is due, schedule it.

This year is not recommended to postpone or put off any procedures that supports your physical or emotional health foundation.


Does the foundation need repair?

Fix anything you have been putting off

Make sure all smoke detectors and home security systems are in order

Your home is for love, rest, relaxation, safety, nurturing, rejuvenating body, mind, spirit, and rebuild your energy.

Does anything need to be changed to make your home more comfortable?

Work – Magnetic Energy

Work is filled with high energy activity and possibilities while planting the many emotional and physical seeds for our professional desires. What was previously invested during 2019 will increase your income during 2020. This is the time to renew strategies and ambitions.

Every work environment decision is made with conscious awareness supporting your dreams and the foundation dreams of others.  A time to connect and share wisdom, insight and collectively build strong foundations for each other in the work environment. The seeds you plant will expand and grow.  True success is supporting others.  The Law of Attraction,

Like attracts like. Energy is magnetic. You are magnetic. Work is magnetic energy.
