Jupiter is conjunct Saturn at 0° Aquarius on December 21st, 2020. This is the beginning of a new era. A new 20-year cycle. All the ‘rules’ on how society works will be examined and re-written.
Jupiter expands and Saturn contracts with its rings which limit expansion with its rules and regulations.
Saturn’s all about slow your roll and does the work. Jupiter is the ever-expanding balloon.
Saturn’s job is to keep it in check so it doesn’t destroy itself by bursting beyond its own limits.
Saturn is the traditional ruler of the conjunction. Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn and Uranus. It’s a new world being birthed from old structures. Funny that Uranus is in Taurus at the time of the new 20-year cycle and is sort of mirroring that air/earth union, or the emergence of air springing forth from the earth.
Information, innovation, and technological advances will be disseminated to the masses.
It brings to mind a weed bursting forth from the concrete.
Uranus is the other modern ruler of this new air sign twenty-year cycle. Uranus is expansive like Jupiter in a way. It takes Mercury’s information and disseminates it to the masses. In this “new age”, a new twenty-year cycle coming in on the heels of the planetary conjunction of Saturn and Pluto at 22° Capricorn, meaning change is afoot. The collision that resulted in breaking apart the old structures has now yielded new rules.
Once Saturn regained his composure and adjusted the limiting icy ring hoops that are surrounding it. Those rings that set parameters are shaken but have new marching orders. The familiar has been lost in the rubble of the collision. Just shortly after that January crash with the infamous outer planet Pluto. Saturn found himself in a different reality. It was a definite transformational shakeup.
After regaining his composure, he entered Aquarius on March 23rd, 2020. He was there until July 2nd. Along the way, he went Retrograde on May 12th at the degree of 1°57’ Aquarius. Finally returning to its natural place of Capricorn on July 2nd. Along with the journey and on his way back again in Capricorn he Stationed Direct on September 30th at 25° 20’ Capricorn. It’s sort of like that bombastic crash with Pluto propelled Saturn forward, then in a wobbly state started trying to turn around and find his way back home.
Pluto demands transformation and change. In this close encounter with Saturn, the directive was given. Marching orders were shared. It’s time for Saturn to receive a deployment into new territory. It’s somewhat familiar due to being a traditional ruler of Aquarius, but having to share the stage with the other modern rebellious unpredictable co-ruler Uranus, has to be very unsettling.
Saturn demands adherence to rules it sets, and Uranus breaks all the rules. Sounds like hostile territory from Saturn’s point of view. This is an identity crisis for Saturn. He definitely has to be alert now.
Uranus takes Saturn’s Capricorn status quo and breaks it up into chunks that can be more widely distributed. It disseminates Mercury’s information like it’s on steroids. It’s Mercury’s big brother after all. Uranus’ job is to connect and to make connections. The effect on all matters will be more universal.
One instance in particular that will be interesting to watch is the media and the news. After this “Fake news” polarization of views which has been cooked up and tailored to its audiences’ political agendas, perhaps Uranus will force Saturn to liberate these separate camps to incorporate multifaceted information.
After a bit of resistance, no doubt humanity may be more outwardly focused. Not so much me but we. That sounds liberating and unifying.
Thank you Aquarius, Saturn may partially rule you but your other Daddy Uranus flips the script in an instant. The status quo is no more. A new age begins.
