Perhaps a necessary response to this pandemic is that the earth itself is asking human civilization to slow down, to pause and reflect.
Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto have not all been together in Capricorn for over 700 years! Looking at the shadow side of Capricorn becomes a pressing situation…. In the year 2020, three major planetary cycles complete and begin anew, creating this reset and great transformation occurring throughout the new decade 2020 to 2030 (and beyond).
- Saturn-Pluto conjunction occurred on January 10, 2020, initiating a new 34-year cycle.
- Saturn-Jupiter conjunction begins (though not in exact conjunction) March 2020… but at exactly the same degree of 1 Aquarius in December 2020. This begins a 20-year cycle.
- Jupiter-Pluto occurs in July 2020, initiating a new 12.5-year cycle.
Jupiter can impart an expansive and mobilizing force. Saturn contracts what it meets and creates solid foundations and structures. Saturn imparts a cooling and solidifying force. Jupiter supplies the strength and Saturn the structure.
Astrology reminds us that whatever the constellation, it can be turned to either positive or negative actions. There is always choice.
For myself, I embrace the gift of time. Time to pause and reflect. To focus not only on doing but rather on Being.
Stay smart, stay safe, Catherine
