2020 is a year filled with many different, and challenging, astrological transits. It can be hard to know how to navigate this intense energy, even more so with the amount of planets we currently have in retrograde. We are also entering a time where we will experience eclipses, intensifying this energy even further.

A zebra is a revered animal in the waking world. To many, its black and white pattern represents harmony, balance, and unity. A zebra has a similar meaning as a horse in a dream: it can represent our passions and urges that we have learned to harness and direct.
With all of these things happening in the Universe, what can we do?
We sat down with astrologer Christopher Renstrom to talk about what we can expect from the Universe in the upcoming months.
Christopher Renstrom is a professional astrologer and writer. He began studying Astrology in 1980 but started out as a full-time Astrologer in New York City in 1985. His career started in reading astrology charts in every conceivable setting.
Eventually, he would move on to writing horoscope columns for print and then online media. His transition onto the internet came with the creation of Ruling Planets.
Retrogrades mark the period of time when a planet appears to be moving backwards. It’s said that the planet acts opposite to the way it normally behaves when it’s retrograde.
Venus becomes discordant, Jupiter brings misfortune, and Saturn relaxes the rules. But retrogrades are actually tests. For instance, good manners are tested by rude behavior. Bad luck tests our faith in a higher power and disobedience may make you feel independent in the moment, but it could also lead you to discover the value of why those rules were created in the first place.
Remember that “retrograde” means “backwards” and backwards can be progress too.
We often retrace our steps to find a lost item or revisit a situation when something doesn’t sit right. Going back to the drawing board may seem regressive, but it often results in coming up with a better way to do things.
Perhaps the most notable planetary configuration of March - April 2021 is the conjunction of Mars and Rahu in the sign of Taurus from February 22 – April 13. The Rahu-Ketu axis moves naturally retrograde through the zodiac, spending about 1.5 years in a pair of opposite signs and taking approximately 18 years to move through the entire zodiac. This year according to vedic astrology will be good for you, as 10th lord saturn will be placed in your 10th house throughout the year.

What do retrogrades mean?The Complete Guide to 2020 Retrogrades
We can expect a lot of clashes with authority in the months ahead. Mars enters Aries in late June and its subsequent retrograde turns a six week stay into a six month one. Mars is the most combative and fiery in Aries and Saturn is the most strict and unyielding in Capricorn.
Mars/Saturn squares will occur on Aug. 24 and Sept. 29. These will be challenging and potentially explosive times. And the fact that people won’t be clear on which authority they should be fighting for or against won’t make things easier. It kind of looks like a barroom brawl.

Mars retrograde from Sept. 9 to Nov. 13. I call this the Trojan Horse Mars. Mars traveling backwards can give the impression that the enemy has retreated and that the coast is clear when actually it’s laying in wait. You really don’t want to let down your guard during this time – especially when it comes to something like the current pandemic we are experiencing. You want to be wary and tread carefully.
2020 has been a challenging year and it will continue to be through Autumn, but there’s a marvelous Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on Dec. 21. Those are the blue skies that we’re aiming for. It won’t solve all the world’s problems, but it will certainly signal better times ahead.
I am a Capricorn Sun, Pisces Moon, and Aries and/or or Taurus Rising. I can never decide which it is.
Tell Us About Your Upcoming Book: The Cosmic Calendar: Using Astrology to Get in Sync with your Best Life.
My book The Cosmic Calendar: Using Astrology to Get in Sync with your Best Life is based on the premise that Astrology is a calendar. Some say it’s a religion; others say it’s a science, but it’s really a calendar. It’s why every major civilization on the planet – Middle Eastern, Indian, Chinese, and Mesoamerican – developed some form of Astrology. It was in order to tell time.
And when you think of Astrology in terms of telling time – rather than as something fated – it really changes your perspective. My book talks about doing things in your own time.

The oldest astrologer’s board ever found dates back more than 2,000 years.
That makes astrology an ancient practice and science. One that’s made its way into our contemporary world – and for good reason. It gives us a way of understanding our lives and behavior, as well as that of others.
There are many different kinds of astrology. Of the lesser-known forms of astrology is Primal Astrology.
But the insights that Primal Astrology can give us are often profound, so it’s worth knowing more about. Keep reading for more information.
Astrology involves studying the movements of the celestial bodies. Some ancients used the stars to help guide them on long journeys and others used it to track seasonal changes.
But somewhere along the line, someone realized that the stars could also be used to understand human behavior and characteristics.
Today, we understand astrology as the practice of looking for signs, predictions, and guidance within the movements and alignment of the stars. One of the most common forms of astrology is the Western zodiac.
Even if you’re not into astrology, you’re likely aware that you have a zodiac sign. You probably even know what that sign is, and maybe even some of the basic traits associated with it.
But the Western zodiac is only one form of contemporary astrology. And whether you occasionally read your horoscope or you’ve memorized the entire zodiac and what it means for your life and relationships, there’s more to the celestial bodies than that.
Beyond being an Aries or a Taurus, you have other zodiac signs. Knowing these can help you understand your behavior and characteristics more deeply. It can help you understand your life path, which strengths will help you fulfill your purpose, and what might be holding you back.
Primal Astrology is one of the studies that build on the zodiac to offer a more in-depth understanding of your life and your life plan.
Primal Astrology is a form of Karmic Astrology. Karmic Astrology is based on the notion that we have more than one lifetime. Each lifetime is only long enough to give us a glimpse of the experiences that are available to human beings.
We come back to this earth to live multiple lifetimes. Through each of these lifetimes, we learn, grow, and balance out the karmic debts that we owe and that are owed to us by others.
The ultimate purpose of coming back, again and again, is to get to know the purpose of our spirit and, eventually, fulfill that purpose.
Our purpose is the unique spiritual goal that drives our behavior and connects us with certain people. Everything in our life, and all of the people in it, are there to help us drive us toward fulfilling that goal.
In this form of Karmic astrology, you can find out your entire life plan. This mapping strategy puts you in the best position to fulfill your purpose.
In order to draw out your life plan, the astrologer uses your birth date. With this date, you find out your Primal Zodiac sign. Also known as your animal spirit, your Primal Astrology sign tells you everything you need to know about how you should approach this lifetime.
The basic premise of your animal spirit is that an animal represents your instinctive nature. These are natural and unique characteristics and behavior that belong to you. In the same way that animals have instincts that guide their behavior subconsciously, so does your spirit.
Finding your animal spirit uses both the Western Zodiac and the Eastern Zodiac (also known as the Chinese Zodiac). You combine both of these zodiac signs to find out your animal spirit.
Your Western Zodiac sign depends on the month and day of your birth. It will be one of the following: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces.
Your Eastern Zodiac sign is an animal. It depends on the year you were born. It will be one of the following: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, or Pig.
As mentioned, your Primal Zodiac sign lays out your strengths and your weaknesses. But it can also tell you about your compatibility in terms of love, friendships, and other relationships. It goes even deeper than that to reveal information about your career and life goals.
Below are a few examples of Primal Astrological signs as they relate to famous people throughout history. As you can see, the animal spirit of these infamous people relates closely to what they became and accomplished in their lives.
The boa constrictor Primal Zodiac sign is intelligent and intuitive. They know how people are going to behave and they calculate their behavior based on that intuition.
They’re also very good at convincing people of their goals with carefully thought-out words – but they don’t do this in a manipulative way. Instead, they tend to act on behalf of the greater good.
The Yak doesn’t take no for an answer and pursues their goals without compromise. They see the world in black and white and resist change. They’re stubbornly determined, don’t question their feelings or actions, and are incapable of finding middle ground.
Lobsters are complex and emotional on the inside, but they don’t show that chaos to the world or people around them. Instead, they tend to dedicate their lives to helping others.
Primal Astrology is a way of mapping out your life plan using your birth date and year. It combines your Western and Eastern zodiac signs to give you your animal spirit. With this information, you have a better chance of fulfilling your life’s purpose in this lifetime.
But this only scratches the surface of the information available to you in the celestial bodies. For more astrological insight, check out this list of the best astrologers out there.
