2020 arrived with the conjunction of Pluto and Saturn, a transit which doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, it always brings profound crisis and a major breakdown in our world. This alignment occurred in 1914 before WW1, then in 1947 with the conclusion of WW2 leaving Europe in a wartorn shamble, and also at this time, we had the separation of India which cost over a million lives.
The second wave from this transit magnifies in September and its crisis point will remain until the end of the year.
At its core, this won’t be about the virus becoming the second wave again even if it is presented as such. Pluto and Saturn go much deeper than that.
As mentioned in previous blogs, Saturn signifies control, restrictions, rules, and non-flexibility while Pluto signifies breakdown, resistance, rebellion, and revolutionary actions that ultimately lead to transformation.
Over the summer, Saturn has had its way as its energy has amplified more rules and restrictions that border on insanity but for many, this has become “the New Normal”.
The Saturnian mind will always justify the reason for more rules and control while at the same time denying anybody the right to oppose their views and if they do, they will be met with strong repercussions. Sounds rather tyrannical does it not? Welcome to “the new Normal!”
However, now that these two planets are back in proximity to each other, Saturn’s rules will be challenged. The Plutonian energy will not tolerate injustice and will uncover hidden agendas. There will be plenty of fireworks in the months ahead which will be a huge wake-up call for most people!
Thus, begins the tidal waves in September and remember…tidal waves of such magnitude will take some time before those turbulent waters become calmer.
Also, because Mars and Saturn will be squaring each other!
A square occurs when planets are 90 degrees apart from each other, one planet being at 12:00 while the other is at 9:00 or at 3:00.
Squares are never easy but with Saturn and Mars, this will be harsher.
When Mars and Saturn join forces, expect to have a fight on your hands much like Pluto and Saturn. Watch out for the war between people as well as People versus the system…and the system versus the people!
Because Mars goes into retrograde during September, this transit will not pass quickly as Mars will continue to hover around Saturn who is still slowly retrograding, with both these planets getting closer toward Pluto.
Mars retrograding can flare up tempers and makes us react, but it can also dismantle our courage and assertiveness. So, we must work diligently to maintain a balance. Don’t let fear rule your day, say what you mean to say, speak your truth, but don’t go overboard in defending what your comments because arguments and fighting will likely become “the new norm!” It already is.
Before you begin to bite your fingernails in dread, we need to note that in September, Jupiter (September 13th) and Saturn (September 28th) will leave their extremely long retrograde and go into direct motion which is wonderful news! The sluggish energy of Jupiter will open and the restrictive nature of Saturn may somewhat loosen up some restrictions, but don’t hold your breath as the powers are relentless with non-flexibility.
Nevertheless, some energy will open. It is there for the taking!
As Jupiter marches forward, we see that it once again (as it did in May) joins the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, and this time also with Mars. Therefore, we have four powerful vibrations triggering their energies onto human consciousness! Saturn can restructure while Jupiter is about expansion and flow, Mars is assertiveness and courage while Pluto is a massive change for transformation. These are the positive vibrations of these planets.
Pluto and Saturn are in the sign of Capricorn which occurred hundreds of years ago… in 1284 when the dark ages began. Is this where we are headed or will it be like the mid-1550s when the renaissance came in? I know what I’m hoping for!
The war is between the egos of people but essentially its a war between the powers that be.
What will happen this year may be the end of a dark age but there is a massive change that needs to happen.
Please do book a private reading with me if you'd like to see how your own planets are affected during these tumultuous times.
