Predictions 2020
The 2020 US elections. Brexit. Climate change. The Tokyo Olympics. It doesn’t take a psychic to tell you that there’s plenty in store for 2020. Still, there’s something about New Year’s that makes even the most skeptical amongst us wonder in advance how things might unfold.

The media routinely taps psychics for New Year’s predictions, and whether we view it as a novel form of entertainment or a real glimpse into the future, many of us can’t help but take a peek. 

So in anticipation of the new year—and decade—we’ve put together a list of what leading psychics are predicting for 2020. But first, a look back at last year’s predictions and how they played out. 

Which of Last Year’s Predictions Came True?

Last year we featured Judy Hevenly, Craig Hamilton Parker, and Susan Rowlen—psychics who have shown a gift for making New Year’s predictions. Here’s a look at how they fared.

Susan Rowlen showed some financial foresight over the last few years, predicting that retail stores would take a big hit (but incorrectly predicting the shuttering of companies like Macy’s and Best Buy.) Judy Hevenly had some big hits—and a few misses—last year. For 2019 she correctly predicted that:

  • Boris Johnson would be elected new Prime Minister of England
  • New York would experience a power outage in 2019
  • England would win the ICC Cricket World Cup

She also had a few misses, incorrectly predicting that:

  • Prince William and Kate would announce the pregnancy of their 4th child
  • Japan would build a robotic lunar outpost

Author and psychic Craig Hamilton Parker, known for his in-depth end-of-the-year video predictions, hit the bullseye with the following calls:

  • Resignation of Theresa May
  • Rioting in China 
  • NASA announces return to the moon 

Though some of his predictions that haven’t come to fruition include:

  • Donald Trump challenging Putin over Syria 
  • That Rudi Giuliani would betray Trump 

What’s in Store for 2020?

Naturally, many psychics have their eyes on the upcoming 2020 US elections. But with international tensions rising, climate change, gossip brewing around the Royal Family, and the Oscars just around the corner, they’ve had plenty else to keep them occupied as well.
