Celestial Milestones — December 16-23 2020

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on the cusp of Aquarius reaches the exact partile minute of the 0 dg Aquarius in the afternoon of December 21st at 3-4 PM, EST.  The New Moon on December 14, a lunar eclipse of the Sun at 22 degrees Sagittarius, is 1 dg and 26 min past the natal Moon of the current occupant of the office, as on that date that the electoral college formally cast votes for the states selected candidate, as we all know is Mr. Biden. It is such an extreme contrast between the two men, that the signs of the celestial events appropriately signal a triumph for democracy, whatever the political view.  Jupiter supersedes Saturn on Monday as the final month of Trump’s administration leaves him diminished in power.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday December 16th — With the Moon in Capricorn today, there is a full stellium, a configuration that requires at least 4 planets in one sign. Jupiter is about half a degree approaching Saturn, so effectively within the orb of influence, as the two giant planets of our solar system combine their influence in astrological terms. As the Moon transits Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn, the influences combine and blend, activating their powers. Threatened violence is met with force until peace is restored.  Action by Congress on the distribution of relief for businesses and individuals is likely to succeed now as the vaccine is administered to front-line workers.

Thursday December 17thSaturn and the Moon ingress to Aquarius early in the day and sextile aspect to Venus in Sadge. A sextile aspect from the Moon to Chiron in Aries follows a short time later. Ceres at 7 dg Pisces is sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus, as momentum for a dramatic change gains power. Jupiter in the final degree of Cap is less than a full dg from exact partile conjunction with Saturn. Mercury in Sadge is approaching the conjunction aspect with the Sun at 26 dg Sadge, as formalities take place among political allies.

Friday December 18th Jupiter is within the orb of Saturn, while remaining in Capricorn for the rest of the day, we gradually become acclimated to the possibility of rapid change in social structures. Mercury approaches the conjunction aspect to the Sun in Sadge, with more speech making at the dawn of a new administration in the US government, giving power to diversity worldwide. Aquarius accepts diversity as the natural order of universal friendship. The Moon in Aquarius is sextile aspect to Mercury and the Sun later in the day. Venus in Sadge trine aspect to Chiron in Aries, as we enjoy the wisdom of swift compliance.

Saturday December 19thJupiter ingress to Aquarius and to congratulations for the collective agreements. The Moon ingress to Pisces at the same time, as the old order begins to disperse. A square aspect from the Moon to Venus in Sadge helps to express regrets, and followed by a sextile aspect to Uranus retro in Taurus, radical flames begin to die.

Sunday December 20thMercury supersedes the Sun in the critical final degree of Sagittarius, as Mars in a square aspect to Pluto denotes active conflicts, as armed militias could attack, or even threatening words directed at political opponents instigate riots. Venus in Sadge is quincunx aspect to Uranus in Taurus, an indirect compliment to the actions. The Moon in Pisces transits Neptune later in the day, as mixed messaging brings confusion.
