• Saturn finds itself in rulership in Capricorn hence very powerful. This is the authority. Doing what is right and knowing right from wrong. Being responsible and taking charge. Setting limits and boundaries. Knowing and understanding what responsibility is and what it entails.
• Jupiter finds itself fallen in Capricorn – the real lesson here is knowing what is enough. Jupiter wants us to expand our knowledge and understanding of the world. The problems of greed and excessive use of authority will be problematic at this time.
• Pluto finds itself in Capricorn and one gets the sense that this is very much about power and authority and the use of this influence. So the saying ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely’ seems to describe this time very appropriately. One can only hope that all that is wrong with the current system collapses at this time. Those who find themselves holding positions of power and influence who have not used these positions to create good in the world must take responsibility for this abuse of power. This applies to people as well as corporations, institutions and governments.
What is concerning is that Mars (God of War) is squaring this very powerful collection of planets. This is something that should have us all concerned. Mars finds itself in Aries and this is a powerful and aggressive Mars. Mars moves into Aries on 28 June 2020 and travels through this sign until 7 Jan 2021. It travels retrograde between 9 Sep and 14 Nov 2020.
The key planets will all be retrograde during this period. Jupiter is retrograde between 14 May to 13 Sep 2020. Saturn is retrograde between 11 May to 29 Sep 2020. Pluto is retrograde between 25 April to 4 Oct 2020. Frustrations may well build in these periods.
In 1940 and 1941 Saturn and Jupiter were conjunct (WW2). In 1914 and 1915 Saturn and Pluto were conjunct (WW1).
Jupiter conjunct Saturn – happens about every 20 years
Jupiter conjunct Pluto – happens about every 13 years
Saturn conjunct Pluto – happens about every 35 years
It truly does seem like the world needs to take stock of where we find ourselves and take responsibility for our actions and decisions taken to get to this point. One would hope that those found wanting end up paying the ultimate price for their abuse of power and that a new set of leaders can emerge at this time that want to do things differently for the betterment of society and humanity.
