The year 2020 is expected to become a year to remember.
A couple of years ago we could connect the 7 squares between Uranus and Pluto to the big economic and financial crisis and the subsequent renewal of our economy, we now will have to deal with the cardinal climax in Capricorn.
In addition, the periods when Venus and Mars are retrograde as well as the entrance of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius at the end of the year, will be the most relevant energies.
Since December 2nd, 2019 we entered a rather rare energy. It does not happen too often that 3 of the long-term planets, i.e. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are in the same sign. This only happens less than 1 time per 1000 years.
Such a stellium (with also other planets like Sun and Mercury involved) in a cardinal sign is called a cardinal climax.
We see these conjunctions taking place in Capricorn.
The subjects to deal with are purification and power struggles (Pluto), structure, limitation and authority (Saturn), and Justice, personal growth and belief systems (Jupiter). In addition, the mini-planet Ceres is also part of these conjunctions.
Picture: Ceres (to the left beneath, with Earth and Moon)
Ceres is called after the Roman goddess of agriculture and maternal love.
Ceres directed her acts of doing well on the poor and so became a symbol for the plebeian rights. In Capricorn we find the heliocentric planetary southern nodes, as well of Jupiter (11th degree), Pluto (21st degree) and Saturn (25th degree). These nodes indicate karmic patterns for the community as a whole.
It will be clear Capricorn energy will be dominant this year.
The influence will be sensed the whole year with special periods where the energy will be even stronger.
At the mundane level we will see this in the first half of January, the second half of March, about April 5th and 25th, end of June, end of September and beginning of October and about November 12th.
At the beginning of 2020 the planets Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn.
The energy of this cardinal climax is the strongest as long as Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn.
Up to January 12th from the slower planets, Pluto has first hit a degree, after that day and up to December 21st, 2020 Saturn was the first on a degree, after that Jupiter will be the first followed by Saturn and Pluto.
This has consequences for the exchange of energies. Up to January 12th we first had to deal with purification and power issues. Everything having passed the requirements of purification will be reordered and prepared for further development.
After January 12th first everything that doesn’t deserve a future from the existing structure, will be reordered and eventually removed. After that the requirement of purification will be examined and when positive there will be possibilities to build upon it.
There will be different scenario’s visible. In one we see the positive use of the energy, used to improve societal circumstances to the benefit of all (including mother earth). In this scenario we see a fair division of wealth, an economy serving a sustainable community and where quality and balance are the key factors. In this scenario we can expect a perspective to a better world.
In the other we see people sticking on decisions from economic models contributing to the wealth of a limited number of people and at the cost for the community and especially the poor.
In this model there will only be a perspective for societal unrest and revolution with many victims. It is the scenario that also was actual in the years before the French revolution, where some European sovereigns used the signs of time to serve their people, but the French sovereigns were blind and lost their head.
At the personal level these energies will also play an important role.
It will especially have influence on certain areas of an individual’s life, depending where the cardinal climax works out in the individual horoscope.
Especially people born between January 10th and 15th, April 10th and 15th, July 11th and 16th, October 12th and 18th will be challenged with energy.
The planet of change Uranus makes a transit in Taurus, indicating at the mundane level that the changes we will have to realize need to be focused on the way we take care for the planet, the production of food, and the environment.
With the planet Neptune in Pisces we also need a vision of idealism and unlimited cosmic love very much of importance.
Venus as well as Mars will become retrograde this year.
Venus is retrograde from May 13th to June 25th from Gemini 22nd to Gemini 5th.
Venus retrograde is about rethinking of values.
This can both have to do with material values and with values in relationships.
We often see financial markets, losing their values and personal relations coming to an end.
It all has the objective to finalize what has become useless and to create new opportunities.
Venus in Gemini also urges us to rethink our ways of communication.
Mars will retrograde form September 10th to November 14th. This is happening from the 29th to the 16th degree of Aries.
When Mars is retrograde it is better not to carry out work that will take a lot of energy.
It is better just to do what is necessary and to think over plans for the future.
Take the time to overthink things you feel to be important for your future and how they could become part of your life. Mars retrograde is challenging you to overthink the acts to be the foundation of plans in your future life.
In December 2020 we can envisage another important change in energy.
On December 17th Saturn enters the sign Aquarius for the second time this year followed 2 days later by Jupiter.
At that moment what I have called the cardinal climax in Capricorn will come to an end.
Because Pluto is at the same time at the Southern node of Saturn we can expect some important consequences of this cardinal climax.
Saturn is already in Aquarius earlier this year (from March 22nd to June 2nd).
Saturn will make the transit in Aquarius up to March 7th, 2023.
In this period, we can expect authorities to put restrictions on our lives.
On the other hand, with Pluto and Jupiter still in Capricorn, this period will be used to reorganize and rethink the patterns of life in society.
When Saturn is in Aquarius the combination of individual freedom in the interest of collective societal developments will be the challenge.
When Jupiter enters Aquarius (the sign of individual freedom), Jupiter will help to create possibilities for individuals, but with Saturn following this can only stay for the long term, if these possibilities are also in the interest in society as a whole.
We can expect fights between individuals fighting for personal interests against the collective and public interest.
This will be the main challenge for the year to come 2021.
