A new social, cultural and spiritual cycle
The Times are A-Changing
Shift in Ideals and Values
DECEMBER 21, 2020 – Jupiter-Saturn at 0 Aquarius is a new beginning
but the beginning is not immediately clear until Saturn enters 1
degree onward. At 15 degrees, it is the most clear
The Pandemic we are experiencing with the Capricorn Stellium will
create a shift in our consciousness and our behavior. This new
Shift will be in tune with Aquarius
Recent Jupiter Saturn Cycles
CAPRICORN STELLIUM and SATURN ENTERING AQUARIUS:
I am not an expert on Mundane or Financial astrology but last year I
predicted a major down turn in the market when Mars entered Capricorn in
February. Some predictions are just easy to make.
My good astrologer friend, Ema Kurent, an expert on eclipses, added that
it would not really begin until Mars crossed 4 Capricorn, the degree of
the Solar Eclipse on December 25-26, 2019. She was correct.
Saturn entering a new sign always shows a shift in consciousness. I
remember years ago when Saturn left Leo for Virgo -- to the day, Paris
Hilton went from being in the news every day to never being mentioned ever
From Capricorn to Aquarius, there was a shift in world governments after
the 1989 Capricorn Stellium.
Actually, the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction portends a great shift in the
the cycle of 1961, the election of a very young president, John
Kennedy, brought a great cultural shift – a Catholic president was
very controversial and he aroused the enthusiasm of young people all
over the world.
the cycle of 1981, the marriage of Charles to Diana brought a major,
far-reaching shift in the monarchy of Great Britain.
conjunction occurred in Libra so there was a theme of changing
relationships – personal and global. We got a Polish Pope, an
actor President, and a very modern Russian president in Gorbachov who set
the stage for the changes that culminated in 1989.
the cycle 2000, this conjunction returned to an Earth sign, forming a
Grand Earth Cross that impacted the presidency. Within a year,
9/11 changed everything, especially regarding travel, security and
even the airline industry. In an Earth sign, there are physical
manifestations – a destructive earthquake in Turkey and the increase
of terrorism, leading us into an unending war in the Middle East.
There was even a Dengue Fever that plagued Central America.
the cycle of 2020, the alignment occurs at 0 Aquarius – a new
beginning in new social consciousness. The Zero Degree is
inchoate – not developed. The awareness of the new consciousness
commences at 1 degree, but becomes more potent at 15 degrees.
While the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 0 Aquarius does not occur until
the end of December 2020 (a great societal shift in consciousness), we can
see the global shift in the making already -- with the Pandemic changing
life as we know it.
If you look at the Astro-Carto-Graphy for that eclipse on December 25-26,
2019, using all four angles, you will see eclipse lines going through NY
but mostly in China.
With Saturn currently at 29 degrees and, again, later in the summer, this
is NOT a time to make a commitment -- wait until Saturn enters Aquarius,
preferably at 1 degree rather than 0. This is an Ending Cycle at 29
The 29th degree is also referred to as the End-Of-Your-Rope
Degree – when people feel desperate and at the end of their rope,
so to speak. People act out of desperation when the slow-moving
planets are at the late degrees of a sign. It is like an abscess
that builds and builds and then pops when the planet changes signs.
The shifting back and forth in Capricorn may show the progression of the
C-19 Virus – increasing until the end of March (as we see in China and
South Korea), slowing down until July and then increasing during the late
summer to autumn 2020.
I say this because Saturn and Mars will be entering Aquarius on March
31st. Remember, I am not a mundane astrologer. But, I do know
Cycles and the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. However, I do not really
understand the progression of this virus in the United States or Europe.
By Mid-March 2020, there have been no new out breaks in China, so the
cities there are opening up.
Caroline Myss once said that, when there is an epidemic that impacts the
health of humanity, there is a sickness in society:
brought the Spanish Flu that killed millions.
the Great Depression and WWII, we had polio. In the 1950s, when
the post-war economy was optimistic, a cure was discovered.
the 1980s, with the delusions about the economy, small farms were
going out of business and the sweeping deregulations generated
problems that we are confronting with Pluto in Capricorn. At this time,
AIDS manifested, affecting first the gay community but then moving
into the straight community.
2020, with the rise of Global Ultra Conservatism that punishes
everyone but the rich and augments the rise of White Supremacy, the
KKK and the global Neo-Nazi movement -- now we have a pandemic. Until
we heal what is ailing in our societies, the epidemic will continue.
This current Jupiter-Saturn conjunction with have an impact upon the
upcoming election and the inauguration charts.

The Inauguration chart is always set for the same date and time.
Four planets in Aquarius are placed in the 10th House,
indicating the course of the presidency. It does not say WHO will be
president but it indicates how the presidency will run – here, Aquarius
NOTE: There was an exception during Obama’s 2009 Inauguration.
He did not say the Oath correctly on January 20 and he had to do this
again at 7:30pm on January 21. Of course, Mercury was Retrograde
The bad news for the 2021 Inauguration chart is that the Moon is
intercepted and VOC. Mars-Uranus in Taurus in the 12th House
can denote enemies working behind the scenes, creating obstacles and poor
cooperation for the president. Venus, regardless of being in the
sign of Capricorn, is always strong in an Earth sign and it is well
aspected, as ruler of the Ascendant. This indicates strength in
THE GREAT PLUTO IN CAPRICORN TRANSIT MEETS THE AQUARIAN SHIFT
Historically, if we look at the last Pluto in Capricorn Cycle, the reign
of Catherine the Great brought Russia into political dominance in Eastern
Europe and the Middle East. While she initially wanted to initiate
progressive reforms while Pluto was in Sagittarius, as her reign commenced
in 1762, she lapsed into rigid conservatism and control over the people as
a result of her fears regarding the Peasant Uprising and the French
Revolution. The rigidity and oppression of Capricorn can ultimately
s to a revolution.
In the United States, the oppression of King George upon the colonies
stimulated the revolutionary war during the end of Pluto in Capricorn in
1778. However, in other parts of the world, at that time, because
Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus formed a harmonious 120° aspect,
the true global revolutions did not come until Uranus entered Gemini in
April 1775. In the current cycle, Uranus and Pluto never reach a
Historically, since its discovery, Uranus in Gemini portends a great
battle for the principles of democracy – the American and French
Revolutions, the American Civil War and WWII. Uranus will begin its
next 7-year transit of Gemini in 2026.
So, we see a pattern that is manifesting today – Pluto in Capricorn
brings the rise of totalitarian governments and the control of Big
Business, oppression of the poor and middle classes and, in the Aquarius
Cycle, rebellion against the oppression.
The United States will experience its first Pluto Return in 2022-23.
Astrologer, Sandy Walker, has stated that, arising from the Constitutional
Crisis of the Capricorn Cycle, we will need to shore up the loop holes in
our Constitution – loop holes that have allowed our leaders to ignore
and circumvent our constitutional laws.
THE TRANSITING PLUTO IN CAPRICORN SQUARE TRANSITING ERIS IN ARIES:
In 2010, I conducted research by using the transit of Uranus in Aries over
natal Eris. I believe in empirical research and personal observation
rather than relying totally upon the myth connected with the planet.
Richard Tarnas (Psyche & Cosmos) states that the myths for the planets
stop working effectively after Saturn (and Chiron). I totally agree
with his statement.
After I make my observations and determine a theme, only then do I look at
the myth to see what parts of the myth can apply to the Object. Yes,
some work very well, such as Chiron. But, as an astrologer and not a
philosopher or mythologist, I prefer empirical observation.
Our Consciousness needs to resonate to the energies of the new Object.
When an Object is discovered, it is because enough of people on the planet
are now and have been resonating to the new energies that the Object
THE NEW OBJECTS BEING DISCOVERED SINCE PLUTO: OBJECTS OF
Planets or Objects that take 4+ years to complete an aspect to a natal
planet are Objects of Transformation.
The Classifications are:
1) Lights - Sun & Moon
2) Personal - Mercury-Venus-Mars
3) Social - Jupiter & Saturn
4) Transpersonal - Uranus-Neptune-Pluto (Transpersonal can only be
the higher octave of Personal Planets)
5) Transformational Objects - Transpluto & Eris & many of
the newly discovered slow-moving Centaurs.
In 2010, my research was based upon the transit of Uranus over Eris in the
natal chart. This is what I observed at that time –
My observation is that all of these Objects, regardless of size, represent
a Process of Change in our lives. It is the long-term transits of these
remote objects that trigger the process of change.
Even with the 4th Harmonic aspects (conjunction-square-opposition),
Eris acts as a benefic only if you are willing to grow and learn and
integrate the lessons acquired. If you cannot go with the
new flow, it is not very friendly in our lives.
Where I have observed health issues under Eris, it is because the
individual fears the needed changes, becomes blocked and cannot integrate
the New into the life or respond constructively to external crises.
It may be, because Eris entered the challenging and pioneering sign of
Aries in February 1926, that this planet works in a manner by which we are
confronted with that which is totally new. These new
experiences eventually become integrated into our consciousness and we are
no longer the same -- some component of our personality (and even society
in general) becomes morphed over a period of time.
The transits involve a process of adapting to challenges in our lives.
Eris only has negative ramifications when we cannot compromise or adapt to
On October 1, 2010, I read a post from Mark Holmes regarding Eris.
He is the host of Centaurs2@yahoogroups.com While his
wording is different from my own, it fits extremely well with my
interpretation of Eris.
Mark stated: “Eris requires understanding, adaptation and compromise to
avoid clashes of ego.”
I responded: I have observed this planet is fundamentally positive
but only recently I have seen its involvement with health issues. In
2012, the passing of a fellow astrologer who could no longer see a
light at the end of her tunnel – Solar Arc Eris crossed her
Ascendant, triggering her death. This is rare.
When people are too afraid to adapt, when they are too rigid to understand
or they are unwilling to make a compromise in their life, they can become
Another example of a friend whose Eris opposes his Mercury: “I get upset
when confronted with very new ideas and I am forced to change or
re-examine my opinions.”
I have also observed that interests begun in one cycle will return and
become integrated into your consciousness in a future cycle. It
facilitates new qualities and attributes that flower into a manifestation
of our true inner nature.
In conclusion, the well-known Jungian astrologer, Alice Howell, said that,
whenever society becomes irreconcilably polarized, this means that a New
Era is about to begin. Paradigm Shifts and New Eras do not happen
easily. Usually, humanity coming together takes a global crisis –
and I guess COVID-19 is, hopefully, the reconciling agent.
On April 6, 202, Ray Merriman wrote a long article for ISAR and this is a
part of his article that rings in accord with Alice Howell:
The concept of a “new era for humanity” is now being realized by those
outside of our discipline. In Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, former
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger wrote a column titled “The
Coronavirus Pandemic Will Forever Alter the World Order.” In it, he
writes: “The U.S. must protect its citizens while starting the
urgent work of planning for a new epoch.” But of course, it’s not
just the United States that must prepare for a new epoch. Still, Mr.
Kissinger gets it. He gets what astrologers knew long before 2020 arrived.
Remember, until we heal what is ailing in our society, the epidemic
