In 2020 we have not one but two conjunctions that mark the turn of a generation, and of an era in history. On Jan. 12, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn formed their once-per-33-year conjunction. On Dec. 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn, both now in Aquarius, form a conjunction in the first degree of that sign. Read more...
It seems like only yesterday that we had the tipping point/turning point Aries New Moon, and last week I was looking forward to the Minor League Baseball season beginning.
We’re now at the full phase of the lunar cycle, which is exact Tuesday, April 7 at 10:35 pm EDT. Basically this happens overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday where most of our readers are. In Perth, the Full Moon is 10:35 am Wednesday, April 8, AWST, and in Sydney, the Full Moon is 12:35 pm Wednesday AEST.
The ‘tipping point’ quality of the New Moon was that it occurred at a right angle to the lunar nodes. This corresponding Full Moon occurs at a right angle to the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction. It’s a bit slow-acting, and will build over the next five to six days as the Sun moves into a square to Pluto, exact on the 14th. So after the first peak with the Full Moon, we enter a short phase of gradually building to another crest.
Said another way, the net effect is a Full Moon peak, in the midst of a lot of energy moving, followed by a gradual confrontation between the Sun and Pluto.
Dear Friend and Reader:
Here is the long view. The United States has until Dec. 21 to get its act together, by which I mean decide what kind of society we want to be. That is the day of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius.
Jupiter-Saturn is the answer to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of Jan. 12, which is still reverberating into the world. That ultimately represents the crack in the foundation of society that facilitated the failed impeachment, and the failure of the heroic medical model.
Regarding the global pandemic, the United States shares a destiny different from other nations due to the fact of its Pluto return. Yes, we are all on one planet. Yet the effects of this whole incident will not be distributed evenly. And for the United States, much depends on the ability of its people and its government to get this right. And we are not off to a good start.
