The Coming Great Conjunction – Astrology


Hello pals,

Subsequent week on Monday, December 21, the Solar enters Capricorn, marking the official starting of the winter season — after which, only a few hours afterward, we’ll witness the long-awaited union of Jupiter and Saturn at 0 levels, 29 minutes Aquarius.

The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn is understood to each astrologers and astronomers as a Great Conjunction: when the 2 largest visible-to-the-naked-eye planets in our photo voltaic system mix to kind a a star with a tail as big as a kite, probably the identical type of star that the Magi (astrologers, after all!) adopted to a steady in Bethlehem in 7 BCE.

Jupiter and Saturn meet roughly each 20 years: the final time was Could 28, 2000, in Taurus. Jupiter and Saturn meet in Aquarius roughly each 800 years: the final time THAT occurred was March 4, 1226.

Every Jupiter-Saturn conjunction marks a serious generational shift and a brand new “project” for every of one in every of us. (Again in 2000, I used to be discovering the braveness to stop my day job and go full time as an astrologer. How about you?) In Aquarius, the Nice Conjunction additionally marks a shift in how we, collectively, perceive authority and authorities. Aquarius is the signal of the folks, versus Leo, the king.

Again in 1226, of us in England have been negotiating their relationship to monarchy, through the first turbulent decade after the Magna Carta. On the similar second in Asia, Genghis Khan was consolidating his Mongol Empire, the largest in history.

This facet in itself marks an epochal shift, and it’s additionally the ultimate determine within the dance of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto that has put us by means of the wringer all all through 2020. I’ll certain be glad when that’s over.

I’ll be instructing a webinar on Jupiter and Saturn on the night time earlier than their large day, this Sunday, December 20 [UPDATE: here’s the link to purchase the recordings]. I’d love so that you can be a part of me, should you can!
