Astrologer reveals the key dates couples should marry in 2020

British astrologer and author Carolyne Faulkner reveals when the key planets for 'commitment, emotional stability and sacred contracts' will align. So if you're planning a 2020 wedding, get this date in your diary.

February 20th 2020 will see the planets align in a way they haven’t since the 1960’s ‘summer of love’.

20/02/2020 is a special day due to ’empowered commitments, emotional stability and the fulfilment of sacred contracts’, and is also a date when ‘Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, Mars and the Moon are all in the same sign’.

Speaking to Femail, Carolyne said: ‘The practice of astrology dates back for centuries, but astrology is undoubtedly having a ‘moment’ with many young people taking more of an interest in the stars during recent years.

‘The astrology and numerology behind the date 20/2/20 is interesting – in numerology the number two signifies the stoic and powerful female, who bows her head with humility and grace, yet has unparalleled resolve and strength.

‘In astrology, number two marks the house of Taurus, and as a sign it is ruled by Venus – the goddess of love and beauty, representing patience, tenacity and a dedication to remain loyal and work hard to build an incredible, lasting union.

‘In particular, 2020 is set to be a particularly fortuitous time to enter into lasting partnerships and official commitments such as marriage.’

So what wedding trends can we expect to see in 2020?

Hamish Shephard, founder of wedding planning app Bridebook.co.uk, predicts that British honeymoons will be all the rage next year, thanks to the knock on effect from Brexit.

‘Mini-moons and British honeymoons are on the rise due to the weak pound, as are UK stag and hen dos. Honeymooning with friends – aka buddymoons – continue to be popular in 2020,’ he told ES Magazine.

Costs for weddings will also be lower. ‘A significant number of couples have been reducing their budgets due to Brexit.

‘Because of that we are seeing more 2020 couples planning crowd-funded weddings, more couples asking guests for a financial contribution and more ‘group weddings’ – where you share your wedding day with your BFF or family member.’
