Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on December 21, 2020 at 1:20 pm ET.
Saturn enters Aquarius on December 17, 2020 at 12:03 am ET.
Jupiter enters Aquarius on December 19, 2020 at 8:06 am ET.
The Sun also enters Capricorn on December 21, 2020 at 5:01 am ET for the Winter Solstice, that’s 8 hours before Jupiter conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius.
I am going to talk a lot about the broader implications of what this all means for our future because Aquarius is about looking at our future and our potential. I’m always going to have more to say about how astrology relates to our experiences in the world, but here I wanted to give you a foundation in what Astrology is revealing to us as we head toward our future into 2021.
The Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is also known as The Great Conjunction and is said to be the first time in 800 years since these planet’s conjunct on the Winter Solstice. Some also say that it could refer to The Star of Bethlehem as well, as a conjunction around 6 B.C.E. Many are excited and intrigued by what special changes the world could experience at this time.
Saturn enters Aquarius on Decemer 17, 2020 and will be in Aquarius for almost three years, until November 4, 2023.
As a reminder, Saturn had already entered Aquarius briefly between March 21 to July 1, 2020, then Saturn Retrograde slipped back into Capricorn between July 1 and December 17, 2020 for a final time, and won’t return to Capricorn for decades.
Do you remember what started happening when Saturn first entered Aquarius on March 21, 2020? That’s when “social distancing” started to be implemented, which totally makes sense considering Aquarius is about social groups and Saturn is about limitations and restrictions. Locking down society is also representative of the power of Saturn on our collective. Interestingly, because so many people are restricted to their homes, people are working from home using technology more than ever, and Aquarius represents technological advances of course. You can watch the video I did about it back then here.
Now, Saturn is going to be in Aquarius for about 3 years and right from the start Jupiter will be entering Aquarius too and Jupiter will conjunct Saturn at the beginning of this journey on December 21, 2020. This is going to create quite the dynamic of expansion (Jupiter) and contraction (Saturn). So we can expect there to be a lot of push and pull in our lives in many ways as we seek hope and freedom represented by Aquarius. The dynamic between Jupiter and Saturn indicates we will be dealing with a contrasting spectrum of opposites. With Saturn in Aquarius, are we going to see an escalation and expansion of social restrictions worldwide?
Add to that, Saturn represents authority figures, and we know how intense that can be when people are vying for power. With Jupiter representing beliefs and ideologies reaching far and wide, around the globe, we can certainly expect that Authorities and Political Figures will be quite dominant in the rules and regulations they impose on our society and social lives to further their goals.
Jupiter also represents law and justice which I talk a lot more about with Jupiter Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on November 12, 2020.
With all that is going on, and Saturn representing strict limitations and controls, people may feel like collectively we are entering a restricted state of existence. Let’s hope not, and let’s hope we can turn this around because Aquarius represents hope for the future. Are people willing to do what’s necessary to choose freedom?
We can hopefully look for positive outcomes associated with Jupiter in Aquarius when in positive aspect to the Destiny Point in Gemini on February 26, 2021 at 5:56 pm ET. This trine indicates media and social media will especially be at the forefront during this period, and how communications and information exchanges influences our collective consciousness. We could see much influence of legal matters at this time, and we could also see faith and religious considerations come into focus. You may also find the recent Full Moon in Gemini horoscope informative in considerations regarding the Destiny Point in Gemini.
Saturn in Aquarius will positively aspect the Destiny Point in Gemini on April 9, 2020 at 10:55 pm ET. This could indicate a period where important decisions made regarding media, social media, particularly involving political figures or people in positions of power. I will of course talk more about this as we get closer to this time.
I will also talk about many aspects relative to Jupiter and Saturn in 2021 as we head into the future.
Jupiter enters Aquarius on December 19, 2020 and will be in Aquarius until May 13, 2021. Thereafter when Jupiter is Retrograde in Pisces, Jupiter will briefly slip back into Aquarius from July 28, 2021 until December 28, 2021.
But what about Awakening to create a better future that Aquarius represents? Well, first of all awakening always needs to start with awareness.
We often hear a lot about how Aquarius can bring revolution and awakening, as if things magically change overnight and everyone suddenly becomes Awakened and Enlightened. Obviously, that would be nice wouldn’t it? And it is possible considering people can change their perspective quickly depending on what they become aware of. However, remember that Aquarius is an air sign, which has to do with our minds, our thoughts and beliefs, so conscious choices have to be made to influence and change the future. Also remember that Jupiter is associated with the Wheel of Fortune, which further indicates hopes and wishes, but there is not a guarantee when it comes to destiny. The Wheel turns, rises and descends and can go either way. With Saturn indicating restrictions from authority figures, it’s going to take work and effort to choose our future and freedom.
Remember that Aquarius is about collective consciousness, and Jupiter also rules media and journalism, ideologies and beliefs, so we are most likely going to be bombarded by information that attempts to steer our collective consciousness toward the goals and interests of those in powerful positions in society indicated by Saturn dominating in Aquarius for the next 3 years. As well, an emphasis on social media further implementing expanded controls and restrictions of the flow of information is indicated as highly possible during this period with Saturn in Aquarius. However, we also have the potential to rise above and choose to see beyond the limits imposed upon us. Perhaps Jupiter will emphasize the push toward truth and justice through law to help free us of the limitations placed on our minds. We are also likely to see many more people turn toward religious and spiritual ideologies to seek higher wisdom and freedom of thought.
As we are going to see a push and pull of a wide variety of ideologies with Jupiter in Aquarius indicating an expansion of consciousness and awareness, this is an important time for us to create a vision and aim for our future, even though Saturn will be putting on the brakes and bringing us resistance. This guarantees that we will have many hurdles to overcome, including impositions by people in power. Also remember that Aquarius represents groups, which includes organizations, and Jupiter speaks to Global initiatives which will want their hand in directing our future. All these things will be playing a role in how our future unfolds.
We hear terms like The Great Awakening being passed around, and at the same time we also hear terms like The Gre-at Re-set. It looks like there is contrast here between evolution of consciousness and a desire to control the collective.
Of course we want to have hope for freedom for the future, but realistically looking at the symbolism it denotes a stark contrast of opposites, and knowing that Saturn wants control, and those in power don’t want to give up control, this indicates that there will be a struggle to break free from the obstacles, limitations and impositions.
This reminds me that often, people don’t wake up until something forces them to wake up, and sometimes people have to figuratively “hit a brick wall” before they have sense knocked into them so they finally do wake up.
We are also likely to see conflicts between Capitalism (Saturn oriented) and Socialism/Globalism (Jupiter oriented) and we are likely to see many revelations about how the world works and how different types of groups are vying to create the future that they each want the collective to adopt. Since people want different things, this means that the most dominant powers will be pushing to get people to agree with what they want to achieve. In this vain, we are likely to see an expansion and awareness in the contrasts of intense and polarizing ideologies like Fascism and Communism.
Aquarius is also associated with humanitarianism, so we could see developments in this regard but it could lead to revelations of how philanthropy and associated groups like foundations and charities, may not be what they always seem. With Saturn in Aquarius we could see karma and responsibility become more dominant especially where there may be corruption. Why? Because we can not ignore that revolutionary, destructive, transformative Pluto is still in Capricorn for the next few years, indicating that much is to be revealed with many revelations about the worst possibilities that go on behind the scenes in high positions in society. Pluto is no walk in the park, it is truly hardcore, but through the process we can evolve out of the negativity and choose better. We also should remember that Pluto was here in Capricorn during the revolutionary war in 1776 which lead to the birth of the United States. Is history repeating itself?
As individuals seek their own way to navigate what’s happening in the larger picture, we will also see a plethora of social groups develop based around ideologies. In this way it can actually enhance segregations of people, but we are also likely to see people want to push for their groups’ ideologies to lead us into the future.
Aquarius and ruling planet Uranus want Freedom.
We also need to look at the ruler of Aquarius, Uranus – which is currently in Taurus. Remember that the key phrase of Taurus is, “I want.” Taurus represents what you value. So we are going to see people working toward developing what they want for the future, which could of course put us in some difficult situations because Aquarius is in Square to Taurus representing challenges and conflict. You can also think of the changes we are going through toward our future as have birth pangs, but that what you value is worth it.
Uranus in Taurus also indicates that there is going to be a lot of desire for freedom, rights and security of our own physical bodies, our health and homes. Taurus also rules the throat and neck, and with Uranus in Taurus it indicates that people will want freedom of their voices being heard. Interestingly, masks can also be symbolically representative of restricting socializing of course. It’s amazing how everything fits the symbolism in astrology these days.
The desire for freedom, could certainly be in conflict with Saturn in Aquarius, where leaders are likely going to demonstrate how they want to dominate and impose their rules and willpower upon us collectively. As Aquarius and Uranus are geared toward science and technology, and earth sign Taurus represents our physicality, it is not surprising that measures to enforce a bio-technology will be a part of this package.
Uranus in Taurus also represents sudden earth changes, like earthquakes and volcanoes. Remember when Uranus first entered Taurus in 2018 we had the major volcanic eruption in Hawaii. I talk more about Uranus in Taurus related to earth changes here. We could see major activity in earth shifts around this time, and could be more likely when Jupiter is in square to Uranus in Taurus on January 17, 2021. Saturn will square Uranus in Taurus three times in 2021 ~ on February 17, June 14 and December 24, 2021.
Remember in Greek Mythology, Uranus was the father of Chronos (Saturn in the Roman pantheon) and grandfather of Zeus (Roman Jupiter). Remember that Saturn was considered to be the last planet in our solar system for centuries, which is why it has the attributes of limitations, restrictions and endings. Then Uranus was discovered in 1781 which represented a whole new frontier beyond the limitations Saturn represented. Uranus symbolizes where freedom, new thought and scientific breakthroughs and advances could become realized. Saturn is the furthest planet we can see with our naked eye, but once the technology to see further was developed, using telescopes, we could then open the doorway to see that there was more than meets the eye.
With Saturn being Father Time and dominating in Aquarius for the next 3 years, we are reminded of how significant this time is as we work toward manifesting our future. Saturn also represents our fears, because of limitations, but Aquarius gives us hope that there is more.
In terms of scientific exploration, Aquarius is known to be quite eccentric in exploration of what’s possible, and Mad Scientists are associated with Aquarius as in breaking through barriers and open up to new possibilities. But Saturn here reminds us that we need to be responsible and must consider what is the cost and karmic effects of these scientific advances? Is technology and merging of technology with our physical bodies going to trap us into a system governed by the power and authority of Saturn? Saturn wants order, rules, control and it calculates and measures. Will the implementation of technology be disguised as giving us freedom, but the real intention will be control while actually stripping away our freedoms? And with Uranus in Taurus, Uranus likes quick breakthroughs and advances, but Taurus is more resistant and slower paced and doesn’t like to be imposed upon. So will we see a struggle for the rights of our own bodies, our rights and personal security as those in power push toward a system of control using our health as the gateway?
Taurus also rules our income and money we earn, so this is another important consideration as we see so many are losing the freedom to earn a living these days by the strict and forced rules by those in power. With Uranus in Taurus representing bio-technology we could also see the merger of cryptocurrency as part of the package.
We have to remember that with Aquarius wanting hope and freedom, and that freedom is not handed to us by those that want control and power, that we need to consciously make the choice to manifest real freedom in our world. We need to wake up and work together to ensure that freedom is the result we achieve.
Remember that Jupiter is about ideologies, beliefs and seeking the truth and finding wisdom. Aquarius represents the collective consciousness, and we each have a responsibility (Saturn) to have our voices heard so that we can influence the collective consciousness in positive ways, to help people wake up so we can create and manifest a more positive future for ourselves and each other. As we wake up and become more aware of what’s going on in the world we get to make better choices and educate one another.
These are some things to think about but I think what’s most important is that we take responsibility for the future we want to create, which means that we are probably going to have to put up our own resistance to the control measures imposed on us so that we can have true freedom. Where we may have to deal with the potential for excess authoritarian dominance in our lives, the desire for freedom will increase.
Of course, I am going to be talking a lot more about this as we head toward the future.
