As if the huge Capricorn Party wasn’t large enough, now the big guy Jupiter is entering this auspicious group of planets. All astrologers are talking about this so I wanted to share it with everyone. We are in historic times now and it can be seen easily with astrology. Even though I’ve written about this before, now that the time that this main grouping is here, it’s important enough to examine again. (Chart at the end of the article).
Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 3rd and remains in that sign until December 20th, 2020. This planet has a 12-year cycle so he is in a sign for approximately one year. Jupiter is the largest planet in the Zodiac and is associated with the fire sign of Sagittarius. The positive side of Jupiter is generous, expansive, fun, international and truthful. It is the planet of justice. But the negative side of Jupiter sure isn’t as much fun. The inevolved side of Jupiter is excessive, extreme, greedy, egotistic and out of control. More is never enough for the lower side of Jupiter. Whether positive or negative, Jupiter Always stirs things up. He makes a birthday party bigger and louder when he shows up. What side will he bring to the Capricorn Party? Probably both.
Before we try to figure out Jupiter’s influence, let’s get to know the rest of the Capricorn Party first. This is a very rare, unprecedented grouping of planets. Why is it rare? The planets involved are such slow-movers, that they are hardly ever together like this. Who are the slowest planets involved? Intense Pluto, serious Saturn, the Hero South Node and now risky Jupiter.
Pluto has a 248-year orbit and is associated with scary Scorpio. Pluto’s famous descriptive phrase is “death and rebirth”. He, like Scorpio, are the destroyers of the old so that the new can be born. Pluto can be ruthless in its pursuit of change. Pluto is also involved with people in positions of power, especially in the now that he is in the controlling sign of Capricorn.
Saturn has a 30-year orbit and is associated with the sign it’s in now, Capricorn. Both Saturn and Capricorn are serious and are involved with government, corporations, laws and structure. They both want to maintain the order from the past, which can be in conflict with the rebirth focus of Pluto.
The South Node has a 18.6-year orbit and is part of the Nodal axis and balances out the North Node. The Nodes are intersecting points between the paths of the Earth and the Sun and are connected with the Eclipse cycle. When the Sun and Moon join the Nodes, there’s an Eclipse. They also talk about karmic situations from the past. The North Node brings the future and new beginnings. The South Node purges unfinished business from the past. His job is to release and let things go. I’ve named the South Node the Hero in this grouping. The mission of the South Node is to help break apart the Capricorn control that government and corporations have over society.
To make this powerful party even stronger, when the Sun and the inner planets enter Capricorn, there will be an even larger grouping. At one point these will be all the planets in Capricorn: Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, South Node, Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon. To add to the intensity, Mars will enter Capricorn on February 16th. The only two planets not involved are Uranus and Neptune!
The truly bizarre chart I'm including is the Lunar Eclipse on January 10, 2020. This eclipse will trigger off an already loaded grouping of planets. January will be a month for the records. Very memorable.
Now that we’ve looked at the planets, let’s look at what is happening globally. Of course, the entire world is feeling this rare astrological lineup. There seems to be a theme to the protests of many countries. As I write this, there are protests and demonstrations occurring in Hong Kong, Chile, Lebanon, Iraq, Bolivia, UK and the US. Most of the protests start with a local grievance but expands to demands for democracy. The demonstrations in Chile started with a 4-cent hike for subway fares. The demonstrations in Hong Kong started with legislation to send people to China for trial. Both escalated into demands for free elections and democracy. The main theme now is inequality or the rich elite vs the working poor.
Another interesting fact is that all of these groups of protesters are using social media for a call to action. Many are sending posts encouraging “civil disobedience”. Interestingly enough, the different groups have connected via the internet and are supporting each other. What is the word describing this? Grassroots.
Looking at the big picture, this is our chance in history to change the way that the establishment has set the rules for individuals as well as for society as a whole. If the internet is encouraging the grassroots effort, that means the will of the people will be heard all over the world. Everyone is waking up and we are expressing our individual voices, which turns into a collective voice.
Ok, we have this dominant grouping of planets in Capricorn now. What sign comes after Capricorn? Revolutionary Aquarius! When I fast forward the solar system, guess what I see? Between December 18th – 20th, 2020, both Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius! At the same time? That’s a real sign that the Aquarian balance is there after the Capricorn phase ends. Aquarius brings equality, a new paradigm, environmental interest, diversity and a more inclusive style.
Hint: this is the very beginning of the Aquarian Age.
