The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn occurs every 20 years and sets the tone for world society over the following two decades. The astrology of 2020 has been written in bold strokes, so it's not terribly surprising the 2020 Great Conjunction should fall right on the winter solstice.
This is a portentous one, too. Not only is it the first Great Conjunction in Aquarius since the early Middle Ages, it is also the closest Jupiter and Saturn will appear from Earth's point of view since 1226 AD. (1)
What can we expect from the first Great Conjunction in Aquarius since 1405?
Orbiting between the personal planets and the transpersonal outer planets, Jupiter (law, spirituality, philosophy, the meta-narratives of our lives) and Saturn (authority, systems, structure) are known as the social planets. The chart for the Great Conjunction, and the element of the sign it occurs in, give us a picture of what society will look like in the coming two decades.
We won't know the specifics of this period until we live them, but the shift into universal Air sign Aquarius portends a radical re-visioning of world society.
The first thing to say about the Great Conjunction is that we're not going to see everything in the world change and become Aquarian overnight. Twenty years is a fairly big cycle of time. But we are already seeing the seeds of some major Aquarian themes:
The rights of the individual vs. the needs of society
The role of technology and the relationship between man and machine
The desire for fairness and equality for all people
The potential for mass atrocities when concepts, systems, and networks are prioritized at the expense of individuals, feelings, and lived experience
Golden Age or Great Reset?
This next 20 years could be - and wants to be - the beginning of a new Golden Age on the planet. Free energy, the end of war as we know it, sustainable communities, and global abundance are all within our reach.
At the same time, a global network of parasitic beings masquerading as billionaire philanthropists, British royalty, politicians, military honchos, and Big Tech and Big Pharma oligarchs is working overtime to herd the world's population into a dystopian nightmare of total surveillance and nanotech-powered mind control.
This would be a conspiracy theory if it were only a theory.
Unfortunately, it's not.
It is a conspiracy that is being put into action right now by some of the world's richest men. The World Economic Forum's Great Reset ("In 2023, you'll own nothing and you'll love it!") is one of the biggest fronts for this massive power grab, but it's just one visible tentacle of a hydra-headed psychopathy.
The destruction of joy and freedom and mental health and economic and food security we've seen in 2020 under the guise of the 'Covid pandemic' is a drop in the bucket next to what these people are promising us in 2021 and beyond.
As the great astrologer (and longtime independent journalist) Eric Francis points out in this very worthwhile piece on the Great Conjunction and the 'Covid pandemic', we are definitely on the cusp of the Aquarian Age. However, we can only experience the positive potentials of this epochal energy shift if enough individuals actually become individuated enough to think for themselves and make up an intelligent collective. Francis writes:
"Therefore, the message of Aquarius is to individuate, which is a fancy way of learning how to stand up to the pressure and be yourself, think your own thoughts, and make your own decisions...Being an individual means doing the work to make your own observations. It means making informed choices for yourself and your family for which you are wholly responsible. It means fully owning your vision of what it means to be a person, or a non-person."
It's disturbing to me how many conversations I've had in 2020 with people who think they are giving me their informed opinion on what's happening but who are actually repeating - often word for word - what I've read in multiple mainstream media propaganda pieces.
Aquarius can be seen as the sign of networks. Positively, we visualize this as we are all connected in a non-hierarchical system of free information exchange. Negatively, we see people as nodes that are taken over and used to break up the free flow of information or even to launch malware attacks at other parts of the network.
This is something I'm seeing a lot of in the last three weeks. People with good intentions who are unconsciously being used as channels of psychic attack at lightworkers and healers who are questioning the official narratives and standing for their own truths.
With Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius for the next year, there is a strong potential for this phenomenon to expand. But our capacity to access our multidimensional resources and get support from allies in the invisible realms will also be expanding.
So, if you're getting slimed by friends or family who get all of their news from CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, or any other corporate media outlet, remember it's not your job to rescue them from the groupthink. Your work now is to clear as much of your own old programming as possible, develop your core strength and resiliency, and keep living your truth and your soul purpose every day.
1 - Great Conjunctions run in families, much like eclipses, and stay in the same element for long periods of time. With the exception of the 1981 Libra conjunction, these pairings have occurred in Earth signs for the past 200 years. With the 2020 conjunction, we move into a long period of Great Conjunctions in Air signs.
