How the Great Conjunction Will Affect You: Sign by Sign, Plus Special Offers
It would be impossible to overstate the significance of JUPITER and SATURN coming together at the Solstice point, creating dramatic punctuation to the end of one of the most challenging years on record. What increases the potency of this particular Great Conjunction (they do happen every 20 years), is that these two power-player planets have been meeting almost exclusively in earth signs for well over 200 years. This is the pivot point into air signs for the next 200+ years. Just a week before the solstice, we have a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, bringing even more acceleration into our lives. It will be a Solar Eclipse at 23 degrees of SAGITTARIUS, conjunct the Galactic Center of our Galaxy. We are in a massive portal of death and rebirth. This is the time we have been waiting for, we all wanted to be here for this, and well... here we go!
The EARTH element is known for its predictability, while AIR is known for rapid change. We have witnessed how dramatically the advent of tech has woven itself deeply into our daily lives over just a few decades. This has altered our existence's tapestry and the ways we relate with each other in tremendous ways.
Literally, within 24 hours after SATURN first entered AQUARIUS (March 19-July 1, 2020), the phrase Social Distancing mushroomed up into the collective narrative in a huge way.
SATURN is distancing/limitation, and AQUARIUS is social groupings. This sudden new reality, combined with the shutdowns, immediately propelled us, without much recourse, more deeply into the social avenues of technology than we have ever been before, in order to maintain contact with our people and to do business and education. A brave new world indeed...
In May of 2018, URANUS began injecting bold, futuristic, technological, progress into change-resistant TAURUS (which rules earth, food, money, and the body). Since then, we have seen rapid and bizarre lurches forward with URANUS ruled tech. Surveillance doorbells are very popular on Amazon, joining the widespread, domestic insertion of Alexa, who's default setting listens to all your conversations. (1)
But you can't beat the dystopian, matrix-tone of forcing cows to wear virtual reality goggles that show them grass and sun, to make them happier in their deeply subpar conditions. Yes, really. (2)
When JUPITER and SATURN come together every 20 years, they set the template for the next big stage of culture. As long as people have been watching the skies, the cyclical dance of these two wanderers has captured interest, attention, and inspired interpretation.
The planet JUPITER is about coherence, expansion, luck, ease, good fortune, and opportunity. Our beautiful, benevolent gas giant has spent the last year in CAPRICORN, the sign of his fall, meaning JOVE has had a tough time achieving his essential optimistic goals while in this sign. Compounding his less than ideal condition in 2020 has been his malefic traveling companions, SATURN and PLUTO. When a planet is surrounded by malefics, we say it is besieged. This means JUPITER has essentially been off-line in terms of his usual ability to assist and bless us, and mitigate difficulty in our lives.
He's been in the malefic camp for so long that his shift into AQUARIUS will provide us with more breathing room than we have had since he left his happy SAGITTARIUS home in late 2019. We had no idea just how much JUPITER in SAGITTARIUS was protecting us. We astrologers certainly knew SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY WAS COMING in January of 2020, but we didn't know what face it would wear. Now we know.
In AQUARIUS, JUPITER has some dignity, while in CAPRICORN, there was almost none, so it in this way that he steps with dignity, into the Great Conjunction of 2020.
JUPITER in AQUARIUS will teach us how to grow and expand through following our unique, authentic path of liberation and freedom. The future is here, and JUPE in AQUA has some good ideas for us and will want to work through us. There is hope.
SATURN is the opposite principle to JUPITER as he teaches us limits and how to succeed within a sound structure through robust stress tests. Alignment is always at the top of the list of his great lessons, and ultimately he wants us to empower ourselves through the slow process of mastery. The focus of each cycle is determined by the sign he is traveling through, and as we know, he will soon enter AQUARIUS, just in time to join JUPITER. SATURN in AQUARIUS will be the meter to gauge the soundness and veracity of the ideas that JUPITER will bring. The two working together in any sign is a serious powerhouse combination. In AQUARIUS we are given a full upgrade to our operating system. Everything changes as we cross through this gate. The changes will not all be immediate, some will take decades to fully manifest, but the frequency changes now. How strongly this will affect you depends on how ready you are to change and grow.
Have you been watching their slow, bright advancement? Each evening they draw closer and closer. They will join visually on December 21, and appear as one giant star. Anyone want to place any bets on what the massive star the three wisemen/astrologers were following when they happened upon young Jesus in the manger? Hmmm...
So on the northern winter solstice and southern summer solstice, these two "influencer planets" will join at 0 degrees of AQUARIUS, the sign of progress, advancement, elevating standards, high civilization, highest human potential, intellectual creativity, friends, groups, and organizations. These are the new themes for our new era.
AQUARIUS always maintains a bit of an outsider perspective.
