Happy Winter Solstice!
Today is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and a sacred time, when our inner light shines brightly in the darkness.
2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, but these last few days before the new year are turning the tide, marking a new era that could alter the direction of humanity for the better.
This shift will affect you personally, as well.
Starting today, and for the next two and a half years, the energy of the cosmos will be supporting you in big ways.
This is a time when you can step into your higher self with ease, connect with your spiritual tribe, and build a future where your dreams become a reality.
All possibilities are open to you now.
The reason for this is a rare conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn at zero degrees Aquarius.
While these two planets meet in the sky approximately every 12 years, several special conditions make this conjunction unlike anything you’ve experienced in your lifetime.
In fact, today marks the closest conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn since 1226 AD.
Let’s take a deeper look at what this means for you.
Becoming Your Future Self
For the last 200 years, with the exception of the Libra conjunction in 1981, Jupiter and Saturn have been meeting exclusively in earth signs. This means our collective focus has been overwhelmingly geared toward materialism, structure, and physical gains.
Not only is today’s conjunction happening at zero degrees Aquarius (a placement representing the onset of a brand new cycle), for the next 200 years, every time Jupiter and Saturn meet, it will take place in an air sign.
This elemental shift marks the departure from a materialistic mindset into a time of innovation, where we will see rapid advancement in technology for the betterment of humanity.
Rather than material resources — ideas, human connection, and technology will start taking center stage in our lives and the world at large.
Air signs love to communicate and socialize, so interaction with others will be a big theme in the years to come. Networking and the exchange of ideas will allow you to turn your dreams into reality in this new era.
In your own life, you will experience the shift of Saturn and Jupiter through a heightened connection to your genius, uniqueness, and potential.
Over the next two and a half years, you will be asked (and sometimes challenged) by the cosmos to break free from conformity, release the fears you may have around “not fitting in”, and allow your inner truth to guide you into the highest version of yourself.
As you move toward embodying who you truly are, you will begin to attract your soul tribe. Ironically, by accepting your personal truth and uniqueness, you will be able to truly find your place with others.
These aligned connections you forge over the next two years will support your in finding a new level of personal fulfillment.
Gone are the times when you needed to do everything on your own. The planetary energies opening now want you to focus on how you can work with others to realize your shared dreams and visions.
A rare, once in a lifetime window has opened in the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. By embracing this energy, you can align with the highest version of yourself, and become who you are truly meant to be.
With the structure of Saturn and the luck of Jupiter, your hopes, dreams, and visions for the future can more easily become a reality now. However, you first might have to shake off your old chains from the past.
If you have felt held back by duty, responsibility, or past karma, 2021 could be a time when you will be able to find a brilliant, innovative solution to help you break free.
For the last two and a half years, you’ve been dealing with Saturn in Capricorn, which has served up a double dose of burdens, limitations, and hard work.
Well, you can finally take a sigh of relief, because you’re finished with these tough, karmic lessons for the next 28 years.
Now, with Saturn in Aquarius, you can draw on your discipline to turn your big ideas into reality and identify the necessary structures you must put in place for your futuristic visions to manifest.
While Jupiter closely conjuncts Saturn for the next few days, a breath of fresh air is being brought into your life. Right now, you are able to make dramatic changes to the structures that hold your life together while releasing any unnecessary or outdated limitations.
You’re able to strike the perfect balance between optimism and reality. This means you can make positive improvements to the structures you already have in place in your life, without restricting yourself unnecessarily or being so optimistic that you overextend yourself.
Now is a great time to set goals for the new year, in as much detail as you can. Due to the rare planetary balance happening now, any template you create for your future will serve you greatly over the years to come.
2021: A Year Of Healing
For all of 2021, Saturn in Aquarius will be sextile dwarf planet Chiron, which represents your deepest wounds and vulnerabilities.
Expect 2021 to bring practical, genius solutions to both your personal wounds and those of humanity. Saturn sextile Chiron is a powerful time when you are able to address your most tender insecurities with patience and wisdom.
You will also be able to put structures in place that will support your ongoing healing and self mastery.
Saturn in Aquarius sextile Chiron in Aries is a deeply supportive transit, during which you will discover your thirst for adventure, discovery, and new experiences in a way that may have felt too risky in the past.
I’m excited for what 2021 has in store for you, and look forward to sharing more as your journey unfolds in the days and months ahead.
Wishing you a safe and happy new year!
