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...

Dear Friend and Reader:

This week we are at one of the peak events of 2020: the conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. The alignment using conventional Earth-centered astrology is Tuesday, June 30, at about 1:46 am Eastern Time.

While this conjunction (which means start of a new cycle), is not as famous as Saturn conjunct Pluto, which happened Jan. 12, from the standpoint of spiritual, mundane or psychological astrology, it is a significant development — one whose manifestations we can see in the world. In fact we are looking right at them.

Before I interpret a bit, first a technical note. This aspect spans from April 4, when it first lined up, through Nov. 12. Often aspects between the slower-moving planets happen three times during that cycle due to the quicker planet making a retrograde that involves the slower one. That did not happen with Saturn-Pluto. It is happening with Jupiter-Pluto.

One benefit of Mercury retrograde in your sign is that it will give you some emotional distance on deep personal matters where this will be helpful. It is difficult to have perspective or objectivity on one’s own life, particularly in the realm of feelings. Now, though, you may have a reasonable conversation with yourself about topics you may have avoided, or that you’ve never discovered.

Monday Morning Horoscope #231 for June 1, 2020

You must keep a sense of proportion where certain matters of the past are concerned. Your charts suggest you’re being called to address something from your personal history. Rather than considering your ideas about it, or the ways it was encrypted into your experience, first address the most basic facts of the situation. What situations and events led to it?

The Week Leading Into the Sagittarius Eclipse

Posted by Eric Francis Coppolino


With a Full Moon eclipse happening, we may experience a sensation of pressure rising, which will have the sensation of pushing at loggerheads, deadlock or stalemate. Given the mounting frustration in the United States, now being provoked by national protests against the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers one week ago, this could be messy.
