Some General Remarks On The Year 2020

simon bentley white eagle astrology schoolPluto’s passage through Capricorn has continued to affect life profoundly at all levels, but on 2020 it takes on extra significance. In January Saturn conjoins Pluto for the first time since the early 80s; later in the year Jupiter does so too, although unlike the Saturn conjunction, the Jupiter one repeats. In some ways we can expect ‘more of the same’, but in others, there is a feeling of doors closing behind us and life inexorably pushing us forward, however much we may not be happy about it! It is already clear that important political developments will occur; their long-term results may be less obvious as yet. However things may seem, ‘fate’ plays a very large part through this massive conjunction in Capricorn and for us as individuals much will depend on whether or not we can adapt ourselves successfully to situations that will often be impossible for us to alter.

 July - September 2020

saturn white eagle astrologyFrom the beginning of July, Saturn, currently retrograde, is back in Capricorn with Jupiter and Pluto; the influence of this satellitium is likely to continue in a similar way with only gradual changes in e.g. the restrictive regulations we are labouring under and the general privations imposed by current global conditions.

It is no exaggeration to say that in some ways, this will usher in a new era of some kind for the world and as so often with Pluto there will be no going back. Of course, to some extent we have been feeling it coming for some time, so it is not likely to surprise us.

April - June 2020plutor white eagle astrology

How the world has changed since I wrote the last update for this page three months ago! What remains apparent, however, is the overriding – some might say ‘overwhelming’ – influence and significance of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. After the pandemic which is now our primary challenge, it truly will be the case that the world will never be the same again. As astrologers we know that this is typically Plutonic; add Saturn and its work becomes even more thorough. Very few people now expect that this will be over any time soon, and that is as well, as a quick resolution is very unlikely.

October - December 2019

Taurus green120The mutual aspects involving Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto (see general remarks above) are still evident at the beginning of this period, but by November some changes are afoot, notably because Jupiter moves forward relatively quickly and all its aspects to the other heavy planets dissolve by the end of that month, with one exception: in early December Jupiter moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn and as it does so it begins a harmonious aspect with Uranus in the early degrees of Taurus.
