In 2020 you, dear Aquarius, need to work a bit harder. Don't worry though. This will pay off for you hugely for the years to come, going into the rest of your life. It's not all going to be tedious drudgery, though. This is the time to fix anything that hasn't worked well for you. You need to be the one to change it. Is there a relationship you're in currently that's going nowhere? You're going to have to start that hard talk, possibly ending it for good. But if there's someone you've had an eye on - someone you've wanted to ask out for a long time - now is the time to make that first move. Ready for marriage? (Hopefully not with the person you haven't asked out yet). You don't need to wait for a proposal. Speak up at every moment in your love life where you're ready for that change. This might sound like a lot, especially if you're not used to acting this way, but it will get easier, better, and more rewarding the more you take the initiative. 2020 is your year for doing this.
January is when you're going to want to start those hard talks. If there's a bad one that you've been putting off, don't dilly dally. You're going to want to have that talk right in the first week of January 2020. Look to the rest of the month to be the time to deal with the after-effects of that. February is going to settle down for you for the most part, but be prepared to speak up more about things that you need from loved ones.
Spring is when confrontations will start to flair up with the people you love. This is okay, although understandably stressful. Listen to what your loved ones are saying and take it in. You don't want to stoke any fires with unnecessary fighting and arguing. As much as this is the time for you to ask for what you want, it may well be the time for them to do it too.
September 2020 is about the point you're going to be tired of all of this direct confrontation business and want to retreat. That's an understandable impulse and perfectly acceptable. Take a little bit of your time away from everyone else and recharge. If you can, make this time completely unplugged and away from outside influences. You want to truly recharge and let the lessons you've learned so far really sink in. A little bit of selfishness at this point is not a bad thing. Don't take too much time in this state, though, as you'll need to immediately return to help loved ones who can use you. They'll reach out to you, but you might want to check in with your loved ones at this point to see if they're okay.
By the end of the 2020 year of the Rat, you'll have had a ton of experience changing your love mode. That's a lot of effort spent to become a better person and an easier person to love. That's very commendable and you should love yourself for what you will have become. The payoff from this will be felt all of next year and beyond, but perhaps more valuable is how it'll make you feel in the present. Hopefully stronger, more lovable, and able to take on any challenge that presents itself.
