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.

There is something initiatory about this aspect: something I have seen can work to get us to the next phase of our lives, and place of awareness.

Three Eclipses are Behind Us

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


This morning’s Moon-Saturn in Capricorn may have come with a heavy feeling, though one that at least came with information about the bottom line of necessities involved, whatever the circumstance. Use what you know: meaning, don’t allow your considerable knowledge and experience to drain down the memory hole.

Monday Morning Horoscope #236 for July 6, 2020

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


The Moon has just finished an eclipse in your opposite sign Capricorn, which may feel like the pressure is suddenly off. If you have that sense of not quite knowing what to do, you’re in a good place. However, you have a few important goals you must focus on, without relying on anyone else to bring them to closure. You probably know what they are.
