The Capricorn Party Gone Crazy

    When many of my clients email or call me with the same question, I need to write an article on it. Everyone is asking, “What in the Hell is happening and when will it be back to normal?” Very few events are truly international. We can have compassion for a bad hurricane in Japan, but now the entire world is facing the same threat. Once again, understanding the current astrology can take the sting out of a situation. Knowledge is empowering. So, what the Hell is happening now?

    It is easy to see what this is astrologically – it’s the infamous Capricorn Party, folks. As you can see with the chart I’m attaching, these planets dominate the sky. We have Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and the South Node all in Capricorn now. That’s quite a big group of planets, but there’s more to the story. Often there is a grouping of planets in the sky, but usually it is composed of the fast planets and doesn’t last very long. When there’s a New Moon with maybe the Sun, Moon and sometimes Venus and Mercury, that adds up to a lot of planets together, but they’re separated in days or a week at the most. Why is this grouping different?

    The planets involved with this Capricorn Party are most of the slow -moving planets. Pluto has an orbit of 248 years and as only in Capricorn once during that time. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was 1776, which was the year of the American Revolution and eventually the Declaration of Independence on July 4th. That was a momentous year. Pluto represents death and rebirth, which was then the death of suppression and the birth of America. This must be a rebirth now too.

    Saturn has an orbit of only 30 years and is the planet associated with Capricorn, which makes it much stronger. Jupiter’s orbit is 12 years and is known for stirring thing up and escalation. The South Node is a point that is karmic and connected with the collective, especially global changes.

    The trigger to this strong, rare group of Capricorn planets was Mars entering Capricorn and joining all of those planets one by one. In my Preview of 2020, I wrote about this time and said: “Mars will join Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn the last couple of weeks in March. That might bring some fireworks to the year’s unfolding. Mars always moves things forward fast”.

    Indeed, the last two weeks of March could be the main time this group of planets comes to life. Here are the key dates:

    • Mars joins Jupiter on March 19th.
    • Mars joins Pluto on March 22nd.
    • Mars joins Saturn on March 31st.

    One more factor in all this was the recent Mercury Retrograde in Pisces, which is the sign of the Zodiac that relates to healing. That retrograde occurred from February 18th through March 10th. Often miscommunication or confusion can occur during Mercury Retrograde and this confusion was the Corona virus. It took the world a while to figure out what was happening and what to do about it. The world is still trying to deal with this unprecedented global epidemic.

    This all combines for the perfect storm astrologically. We have a rare, almost ruthless group of planets who are being strengthened by Mars. Then add confusion about health with a Mercury Retrograde in Pisces and we ended up in this predicament.

    Let’s fast forward things a bit as see what is right ahead of us. Saturn and Mars will leave Capricorn and enter Aquarius within days. Saturn enters Aquarius on March 22nd and Mars follows and enters Aquarius on March 31st. Aquarius brings change in a totally new and unexpected way. It is the sign of the inventor and the genius. Mars will announce the change with a dramatic flair. Even though Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn from July 1st through December 17th, his stay in Capricorn is nearing the end.

    I love how this planetary dance works. When one slow planet enters a new sign, it always has an entourage. When Saturn does enter Aquarius fully on December 17th, 2020 Jupiter follows and enters Aquarius on December 19th! At that time the Capricorn Party finally breaks apart and we will enter an Aquarian phase for quite a while. Pluto enters Aquarius from March 2023 and remains in that sign until March 2043!

    Capricorn deals with government, corporations, rules, the stock market, restrictions and lockdowns. This grouping of planets is here to help us fully realize this cold, corporate era that we’ve gotten accustomed to living with on a regular basis. It is the peak of this phase and was topped off with this Corona virus. In an odd way, it has unified the world. Not fame, fortune, gender or location protects anyone. We are all in this together and is shows our vulnerability as a human species. The world is experiencing a mandatory global reset.

    Aquarius is all about innovation, new technologies, entrepreneurs,  inventions, new energy sources, the environment and the future. We are watching the transition from one paradigm to the next. Even though it’s not easy, we can see this as a new birth of humanity. This is the very beginning of the Aquarian Age. We had to clean out the old before the new could begin.

    What are some positive things about this time?

    • More people are deciding to become entrepreneurs and accomplish their true purpose in life.
    • The likely beginning of Universal Health care.
    • Community is a lifeline and getting stronger.
    • Leaders are being forced into compassion.

    In physics and nature, there is always an ebb and flow. The bigger the lull – the faster the forward motion once it’s done. One kickstart could be the New Moon in Aries next Tuesday March 24th. With both the Sun and Moon in Aries, this is a perfect time to feel more empowered. Set specific intentions for this next month on the New Moon.

    Yes, I can see why all this is happening and it’s hard to say when things will get back to normal. We might be seeing a new normal. The lyrics of a long by R.E.M. is in my mind now.  Sing along…

    It’s the end of the world as we know it,

    It’s the end of the world as we know it,

    It’s the end of the world as we know it,

    And I feel fine.
