This is the first seasonal article on significant transit patterns through 2020, and the next one will be posted close to the Winter Solstice, 2018. Please watch for it! During the 2018 Fall Equinox, I decode some significant astrological patterns from now through 2020. During this equinox, the Sun going into 0 Libra conjuncts Mercury and opposes Chiron in 0 degrees Aries and squares recently direct Saturn in 3 Capricorn. My focus is on Saturn because his square to Chiron means we need to heal any weaknesses we have with using the power of Saturn.
Dear old Father Time, Saturn, asks us to be honest, disciplined, and responsible. But, we don’t like Saturn very much because he forces us to deal with obstacles and face our difficulties. When Saturn is in Capricorn—which it is now for the next two years—the pressure to get real and clean up our act is on top because Capricorn rules Saturn. We tend to be moody, bad tempered, and even down right disgusted at times. Trump’s grumpy face mirrors frustrations with our own irritation and lack of patience, and Bob Woodward’s red cover for Fear is the perfect image for our bad moods. Regardless, as we balance during the Libra Equinox, we must get beyond annoyances and adopt the high potential of Saturn—self-control and discipline.
Saturn joined the Sun in Capricorn with the Sun during the 2017 Winter Solstice nine months ago, joining Pluto already in Capricorn, and most people were overtaken by freaky fear. Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008 when the exposure of global corruption and sexual abuse ramped up. Global financial structures and the Catholic Church tottered in 2007, and then the Western banking system almost collapsed in 2008. Saturn moving through Capricorn will make it to Pluto on January 12, 2020. This will be the final phase of the Saturn/Pluto cycle that began in 1982 when globalism emerged as the supreme goal of Western powers. Now at the end of this cycle, a fierce backlash against globalism is in gear. As we complete this Saturn/Pluto cycle through 2020, the struggle between globalism and nationalism could shred world economies. However it plays out, one thing is certain: Corruption and power imbalances that have developed since 1982 are being exposed.
This Saturn/Pluto cycle will hold everyone accountable for rampant corruption and power abuses because the 2020 conjunction is the completion of a 500-year Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, a formative cultural cycle. Rot coming to the surface is shocking. I’m exploring this in my fiction; for example, exploring clerical child abuse. We must protect innocent children. The urgency of this problem makes sense when we consider the previous Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn cycle 500 years ago. We are dealing with the polluted dregs from when Pluto was in Capricorn 1515-1532, and when Saturn conjoined Pluto in 1519. During that time, the central theme at this time was the Reformation–Martin Luther’s attack on Catholic sexual and financial corruption, just like now!
This theme inspired me to write the Revelations trilogy starting in 2011, but I didn’t realize that until now. Back to the early 1500s— Catholic sexual and financial corruption were so bad that Luther began the Reformation to clean up Catholic abuse, but the sickness simmered under the surface and re-exploded during the 1940s. Now as shown in the news, in my trilogy, and in the film “Spotlight”, we can see that clerical sexual abuse of monstrous proportions is collapsing the Church. The Vatican’s global financial control is at the heart of globalism—a power abuse that has to end during the Age of Aquarius. Abusive priests and greedy globalists must be totally exposed to raise our collective frequencies. The transits indicate it will happen, and it is!
When Saturn reaches Pluto on January 12, 2020, the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and the lunar south node are also in Capricorn. It is impossible to imagine the intensity of the pressure we will feel when decades of ugly corruption and abuse are exposed that could make Angels weep. However, soon after this Capricorn Crunch, Mercury and the Sun move into Aquarius and new paradigms will be adopted. The peak of this shift comes with the 2020 Winter Solstice when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn, forming a Trigon. Trigons are aspects that happen every 20 years that open a whole new political cycle, in this case in starting 0 Aquarius. The holographic bells of Aquarius will be tolling!
We are here on Earth now for the collective transformation of our species. So what can you and I do to transform the current abuses? Political corruption first starts with individuals, and sexual abuse infects everybody. We must dedicate ourselves to being honest and fulfilling our obligations and responsibilities: For example, in a controversy over a Supreme Court nominee, how can we allow a President who is a notorious sexual abuser influence the outcome? People with power and money must use it for the good of all, or they will be swept away in the collective tsunami of greed and evil desires. These Saturn transits are compelling us to take responsibility for our species and our planet.
Divine love never abandons us, though it may seem that way at times. Chiron opposite the Sun as it goes into Libra during this equinox signals breakthroughs to the higher five dimensions. We will have maximal help from spiritual dimensions—just what we need for using Saturn at his best. My parting message is: if September 15 through 25, 2018, was difficult for you, it is because Chiron was in 0 degrees Aries during the Fall Equinox when the Sun/Mercury went into Libra squaring Saturn in Capricorn. Anything in your life that was out of balance took you out or challenged you to clean up your act. I do hope it was the latter! Hugs to you all!
