Supporting what is already showing a strong life force, six planets in Aries (Sun, Venus, Mercury, Chiron, Ceres, and Eris) keeps the fire well stoked for the first half of April.

Ceres, a seeding archetype, entered Aries on February 20 (the same day Mercury finished retrograde). Continuing in this sign until May 8, it is an appropriate transit for the start of the spring season. There’s plenty of fresh potential on the horizon, especially in the last 10 days of the month. Mars enters Gemini on March 3. Extending to April 23, one way or another watch for this energizing and mobilizing Mars transit to get you/get it moving. 

As of the month start, Mercury is just two days into its three-week retrograde cycle. As is typical for the cycle, expect revisits, backtracks, sidetracks, surprise repairs or expenses, and the out of the blue. Mercury in Aquarius keeps social and political matters on shake, not stir. A trend/the action could show good vitality, but it could be short-lived. Ride the wave while it’s looking good but don’t bank the long term. That’s not to say there’s no chance for future prosperity but simply that there are no real guarantees. The transit is good for a rethink or regroup and for finding unique solutions.

2021 opens with Jupiter and Saturn at the start of their tours in Aquarius. Jupiter visits the sign every 12 years, Saturn every 30. On the winter solstice (Dec 21, 2020) Jupiter formed a conjunction with Saturn. This meeting launched the start of a new twenty-year cycle of social/cultural, and economic growth. Jupiter/Saturn are also at the start of a new 200-year cycle, which is part of an even larger (800-year) cycle. Additionally, Jupiter/Saturn are synchronizing to the much bigger clock, that of a coming new world age. Sounds like a big deal, you say? It is.

Yes, it is time to look ahead. Mercury in Sagittarius, December 1 to 20, sets the holidays and more into a fuller swing. This Mercury transit increases the search for better answers, opportunities, profits, results, and gratification. On the final stretch of a six-month tour of Aries, Mars the action planet, is also on a punched-up initiative.

Mercury in Libra ends retrograde on the morning of the USA election day (Nov 3). Nov 1 to Nov 6, Mercury is engaged with Saturn by square aspect. This transit underscores the weightiness of decisions and the consequences they will carry. Judging by the record pre-voting, the public seems to have already read the memo. Mercury in Libra suggests the results could go either way, but the fact that Mercury ends retrograde on election and is in a restructuring phase with Saturn bodes well for a change of leadership.

October opens and ends on a full moon. Mars continues in retrograde while Mercury begins retrograde -and there’s more. Here is the run down:

The month ahead hosts Venus retrograde, 2 eclipses, Mercury retrograde, and the start of a six-month transit of Mars in Aries. Here’s the run down:

2020  marks the opening of a new world era signified by rare outer planetary alignments. It is a significant year that  requires a new set of rules and assumptions about time and reality along with new approaches to leadership, governance, care for the environment and serious visions for the future. 2020 presents a turning point where the implications of ‘modern living’ have become very real and personal. On a socio-political level, it signifies the peak of autocratic rule while a shift to movements that support the common good will increasingly gain importance by the end of 2020.

The Great Planetary Cycles of 2020 and
Your Personal Well-beingDuring January until December 2020 we will experience the very rare triple conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. This not only marks the beginning of three new cycles but also their endings. On January 12, 2020 Saturn and Pluto will make their exact conjunction in Capricorn, while Jupiter and Pluto will meet three times during April and November in the ambitious and conservative sign of the Mountain Goat. However, Jupiter and Saturn will move into innovative Aquarius before they make their conjunction on December 21st 2020, the time of our summer solstice.
