If you've been following the Astrology of this year, you might have noticed a lot of *buzz* around this Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction aka THE GREAT CONJUNCTION.
Here's some information that I hope you will use as a springboard for your own self-inquiry.
As always, use what resonates with you and leave the rest. We're all experiencing our own perspectives and journeys at this time. As much as Astrology and History can help us - everyone's growth is non-linear. What might work for you today, might feel different tomorrow.
Strengthen the individual healing and seek out collective energies when you feel ready.
Here's the TLDR (Too long don't read) version:
The Great Conjunction occurs when the planets Jupter and Saturn appear the closest in the sky
This occurs approximately every 20 years or so
The astrological phenomenon occurring today will hold influence over the next 20 to 200 years.
According to some schools of thought, this Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in the sign of Aquarius, signifies an "official" entering into the Age of Aquarius - more energies shifting into humanitarian and collective shadow work
The last time that we had this Astrological phenomenon occur was at the beginning of the Renaissance (more on this historical note later) - this anticipates innovation, change, and even controversy
Our Scientific Space friends at NASA have this to say:
"The planets regularly appear to pass each other in the solar system, with the positions of Jupiter and Saturn being aligned in the sky about once every 20 years.
What makes this year’s spectacle so rare, then? It’s been nearly 400 years since the planets passed this close to each other in the sky, and nearly 800 years since the alignment of Saturn and Jupiter occurred at night, as it will for 2020, allowing nearly everyone around the world to witness this “great conjunction.”
Why look to Astrology for Answers?
In more recent Astrological trends, regular folx and professional Astrologers have been using this a lot of this cosmic language for self-inquiry and understanding. Astrology, especially understanding one's planetary placements (in your birth chart), can help you uncover the challenges and strengths that lie within the depths of your human character.
Let's not forget though, that Astrology is a form of Divination.
While we can look towards history to see the patterns that have existed and anticipate them in our present, there's still a lot of personal interpretation and intuition that lies behind a good Astrological reading.
How does this Conjunction impact the Collective?
If you've been paying attention, there are HUGE inconsistencies amongst Astrological reports. Just as it is in any study, there are different philosophies out there and not all Astrologers agree on what this Conjunction means.
While I do enjoy taking a stroll down the historical lane, let's not supplement our current experience with fixation on the past.
Because other planets have already "arrived" in the Age of Aquarius, the collective has already felt significant pulls towards humanitarian work and social justice change.
Do I have enough fingers to count the political events that have come to light this year?
No. Not at all.
What we can expect is more urgency to serve, to work within your Purpose, and to create global change. The call to uncover Truth is going to be sprinkled across this entire era. (Like jelly donut-level sprinkling... ok so that's more like a dense coating).
There's also been a strong call-to-action to protect and uplift the voices of our most vulnerable in society. All of the Shadows within society are now coming into the light. What has once been considered Taboo or controversial, is now going to take a seat at the table. As it should. Our shadows are just as valuable as our illuminated sides.
What we have been conditioned and taught to know, has been significantly stripped away, and at this point this is leaving the collective is a little sensitive and tender. Heightened Awareness isn't always comfortable, but it does makes us more connected.
Connected to Spirit and connected to one another.
Be sure to love on all of your parts and pieces today. You are whole and how you're feeling holds great Truth.
How does this Conjunction impact individuals?
What happens to the collective is reflected back into the individual's journey (and vice versa). This Conjunction is a beautiful and deeply profound reminder that the Shadow work you've been doing for the past few years, is now entering a new phase.
How can we illuminate what's in our shadows, to help bring healing to those still in the dark?
You've likely already started this inner work.
Don't expect that this Conjunction is going to feel like a a hard switch. In fact, if you reflect upon the past year alone, we have already been in the anticipation of these energies.
The tail end of 2020 has yielded potent energetic placements that are bringing clarity to your Purpose, your path, your ability to serve. These energies have also been showing us how to integrate our deepest learning into all parts of our lives, not just compartmentalized like another thing on your to-do list.
Your healing and growth now is gonna be HELLA holistic. For real this time, not just in theory.
So if you haven't done so already, check-in with yourself and see what areas of your life feel like they need more attention so you can step into this 2.0 version of yourself.
Meditate on this!
