Lilith and Eris-Persephone in Aries
Lilith was the biblical first wife of Adam before Eve. She was originally a Snake Goddess. Her story mirrors the literal demonization of feminine power and sovereignty.
Mars into Capricorn
Saturn into Aquarius
Saturn only visits each sign of the Zodiac once every 28 years so this is significant. If you’ve been feeling the lack of Air element in the astral terrain, this will come as a cosmic breeze, elevating the moods of the Air sign people in particular.
It’s a reality flashpoint for people with natal Saturn in Aquarius and – more broadly – a potent time for experimental styles of living and a more inventive, fairer society/business structure.
Venus into Gemini until August
Gemini vibe is all about the cryptic clues, puzzle solvings, whacky complications and cognitive chemistry. Let the games begin!
The first of 3 Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions
Venus Retrograde until June 25
The karmic mating and dating matrix is activated, big-time. But it is also a traditionally terrible time for cosmetic surgery and formalizing a romantic committment.
North Node of the Moon enters Gemini
The Moon’s Nodes are their own weird journey, a subtle saga of destiny and fate, with the North Node representing the Future and the South the past.
While your natal Nodes are the most important (see Astral DNA for more info on those), the North Node in Gemini makes the Gemini part of your birth chart highly primed for fortunate opportunities and beneficial fate.
But people may also be drawn to destinations that allow them to lay old ghosts to rest or even visit the scenes of previous lives. It adds an extra zap of magic to the Venus Retro and completes the lessons phase begun in December 2018.
2019 was typifed by Saturn in his own sign, further strengthened by proximity to Pluto, parked on the South Node for much of the year. Many people felt burdened by their past and its sorrows or defeats. Forced to look back and assess their story thoroughly, we found it harder to invest in the future.
The Nodes in Gemini-Sagittarius (until 2022!) are lighter, higher-frequency and more mercurial. Desirable changes and processing or integrating the past will be easier from now on.
Mars into Aries until January 7 2021
Mars in Aries is when you wake up in the morning and think you might start going to the gym again but then sign up for a marathon instead. It’s Aries vim and vigor to the max.
It also means that there will be some flashpoint dates over the second half of 2020, as Mars challenges Pluto in Capricorn. It’s revolutionary astro and if your money is on the status quo continuing, check your data.
Saturn backs into Capricorn
Saturn backs into Capricorn but only, you may be glad to read, back to 25 degrees, the point it was at in Feb. The Saturnine scorch trials of 2019 (with Saturn on the South Node for most of the year) were a one-off. And if you have been doing your due diligence, trying to identify the lessons and cosmic cues as they come, this Saturn retro is a reward.
Jupiter sextile Neptune
High Velocity Volatility Alert
As a general rule, it is a good time to transform stagnant conditions or pull out extra energy for big-deal ambitions but it’s not good for experimental dating or starting fights that you may not have the stamina to finish. Or which you could win but at what cost?
It’s geopolitically a flashpoint so not ideal for non-necessary travel or risky ventures. If you are already a Mars Person, this takes you off-the-scale.
Mars Retrograde Aries to mid-November
Mars Retro is not, however, good for initiating litigation or any venture that could count as aggressive. Retaliation? Fine. But classically, if Mars is Retrograde the aggressor will lose.
It is, however, brilliant for secret alchemy and covert transformation schemes.
Lilith into Taurus
You might think this ancient Babylonian goddess turned biblical upstart would be more sedate in sensual Taurus but no. Lilith will spend the remainder of the year in orb of Future God Uranus, adding a new dimension to Taurus relationships and – more broadly – quickening the already-in-play new Uranus in Taurus economy.
Hecate trine Uranus
Magic is real and it’s blazingly apparent this Samhain.
Shamanic Neptune in Pisces
Neptune-Nodes energy is a potent formula for psychotherapy, intuitive genius, being guided back onto your life path or feeling it more fully and a dream practice.
Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius
Jupiter and Saturn meet every 20 years; the alignment is important to multiple cultures and is also known as the Great Cycle. Occurring at the powerful Zero degrees point and square Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius), it’s represents a significant break from the past and new-era opportunities!
