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 connects mind-body-spirit with the physical world of structure and organization, represents work, four pillars of a foundation, home, stability, strength, values and beliefs, focused intention, connection to power. 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, letting go of things that no longer serve your highest good.

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?

Relationship with Self and Others

Reminder you are creating the foundation to see with clarity the big 12-year picture in each action.

Unconditional love.



Awaken your dreams, enhance intuition.

Supporting others’ dreams personally and professionally.

Purge wounds and heal the heart.

Breathe in the action of creation.

Allow new ideas, creativity.

Acknowledge and awaken the source of creative inspiration.

With intention, maneuver through times of change.

Acknowledge your courage and strength.

Speak with compassion, honesty, integrity, encouragement and hope.

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.

Avoid misunderstandings regarding finances. No direct confrontation unless you are ready to defend your investments. Wisdom and diplomacy remain your best allies.

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.

2020 offers the opportunity to build a strong magnetically charged foundation.



Suddenly, we slept in one world and woke up in another.

Suddenly, Disney has no more magic.

Suddenly, Paris is no longer romantic.

Suddenly, in New York everyone sleeps.

Suddenly, hugs and kisses become weapons.

Suddenly, holding hands and walking the parks become outlawed.

Suddenly, no visiting aging parents and grandparents become an “act of love”.

Suddenly, bomb, machine guns, tanks and artillery begin to gather dust.

Suddenly, money has no value when it cannot even buy you toilet paper.

Suddenly, we have been put in our place by the hands of the universe.

Suddenly, we have been made aware how vulnerably ‘Human” we truly are when faced with a microbe so powerfully inhuman.

Offering Higher Consciousness Perspective

What if 2020 is not cancelled?

What if 2020 is the year we have been waiting for?

A year so uncomfortable, so painful, so scary, so raw that it finally forces us to grow.

A year that screams so loud, finally awakening us from our ignorant slumber.

A year when we finally accept the need for change.

Declare change.  Work for change.  Become the change.

A year we finally band together instead of pushing each other further away.

2020 is not cancelled, but rather the most important year of them all.

The time of great change created overwhelming fear, financial and emotional loss, isolation, illness, and death. All activity as we knew it stopped.  Jobs and homes lost, planes, trains, cars schools, businesses, restaurants, courthouse, DMV everything stopped. The world was forever changed as we hid behind face coverings isolated from family and friends in our homes and perhaps waiting in long lines for charity food handouts.

Our world leaders must come together.

Our wellbeing is interconnected.

The virus started in China, December 2019 and became the catalyst, the magnetic pull for the world’s people to come together and resolve the worlds pandemic for the good of the global community. There is a higher knowledge/consciousness at work. The virus is referred to as COVD-19.  In the science of numbers, 19=10 and then reduced to #1.  The #1 means New Beginnings.  Families are talking to each other, neighbors are picking up grocery and med’s for other neighbors, the elderly are being looked after and shelters are created for the homeless.  The entire world is conducting research to find a cure and a vaccine.  COVID-19 will end as fast as a rock drops, and it will be over.  The peoples of earth will be better, kinder, compassionate, aware, enlightened.  New med’s will be developed because of the virus research and the world as we knew it will change for the better.  The world’s people will come together to survive and there is no difference in religion, nation, political, color or degree.  YOU are living history.  2020 is the time future history books will always document.  YOU are part of the great change.

Buckle up the seat belt for the ride of your life.  Like a Carnival ride, there will be fast ups and downs, unexpected, blindsided curves, flashing lights and dark tunnels.  Suddenly around a curve there is space filled with light.  The ride stops and we get off.  We acknowledge fear, courage, and cry at endings that were also beginnings, we just do not know it at the time.

You were made for this cosmic event.

 Ask self:

Who am I?

What do I want?

How can I serve?

Did I help someone?

Do I respond to fear with integrity and courage?

What will history say about my contribution?

Emotions are more contagious than the virus.

The virus is spread by physical proximity, breath, touch.

 Emotions are spread through cyber space.

 Healthy emotional contagions have no boundaries and are resilient to disease.
