    But what about the date? If you haven’t chosen one yet, listen up – there’s actually one day next year that’s perfect for walking down the aisle according to the stars.

    No, we don’t mean celebs – the actual stars.

    Astrologer and founder of Dynamic Astrology Carolyne Faulkner told Cosomopolitan that anyone planning to say ‘I do’ in 2020 should do so on 20th February because the number 20 represents the Angel, which  signifies ‘new beginnings’.

    ‘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,’ she said.

    ‘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.’

    But if you can’t pin down 20th February, don’t panic – the whole year is a pretty good time to make a big commitment in your relationship. Why? Because Saturn shifts from Capricorn (where it has been since 2017) into ‘the idealistic and forward-thinking sign of Aquarius in 2020, joining Jupiter.’

    She continued: ‘This combination hasn’t been seen since the 1960s, which was the age of love, equality and freedom, and the freedom to love.

    ‘Due to the alignment of planets in 2020, couples who choose to say “I do” under this astrological phase are very likely to have been in karmic unions many times over, in many other lifetimes; but this life is the one where they may just get it right.’

    Good to know if you’re planning your big day for next year…
