Astrologer Tisch Aitken
I am a New York based Astrologer and Tarot reader with over a decade of experience. I study through the NCGR education program for astrologers. I incorporate both Astrology and Tarot into my readings at parties.
I currently read for two major international websites with diverse personal clientele and at several corporate and private events. I love working with people and I am very passionate about what I do.
Jupiter and Pluto Come together to transform.
This is a difficult article to write. We are all in some form of isolation or another trying to carve a slice of security in a current world of uncertainty. This historical stellium of planets in Capricorn have forever changed the world in 2020. Saturn, which is one of the two key planets of the year is briefly transiting in the fixed air sign of Aquarius, of which it is the ancient ruler in Astrology.
We are now searching and finding tools to heal, help one another, evolve our skills through technology and innovation, and find connection again in a world that suffered from indifference. Saturn entered Aquarius on March 21, 2020 where it will remain until July 2, 2020 when it re-enters Capricorn.
This provides us a brief glimpse of the Aquarian era that begins on the Winter Solstice in December of 2020 when Jupiter and Saturn meet up at 0 degrees of Aquarius. This will mark a cycle known as Great cycle that occurs every 20 years. Saturn will remain in Aquarius until March of 2023; but, Jupiter will remain in Aquarius from the Winter Solstice of this year until December 30, 2021.
At the end of the year, the two will structure a new vision together in this Aquarian age of futuristic thinking, connecting in new ways, and brilliance.
At present, Pluto in Capricorn reminds us of our resilience to keep getting things done, as much as it does our fears. I have witnessed so many acts of bravery, hard work, persistence, and meaning in this year that we will never forget.
In a time like this when all mankind is threatened by a scourge, we have to learn to live with social distancing. Saturn limits us, and Uranus seeks to form connections. Saturn and Uranus are the ancient and modern rulers of Aquarius, and they are currently forming a clashing square. This invokes almost immediate brilliance through chaos, and this is a time if ever we need it.
We are all finding innovative ways to connect in this time with Saturn is in the sign of inventiveness, but we are all deeply searching within ourselves for some new beam of enlightenment. I have seen beautiful and incredible examples of humanitarianism, community, and people learning new skills in droves and in so many ways.
In January, Saturn, the planet of structure, integrity, hard work, limits, and leadership, joined up with Pluto. Pluto is the planet of transformation, intensity, power, wealth, death, and rebirth. The two traditional malefics met up on January 12, 2020 at 22 degrees of Capricorn. This is a degree known as the world axis, and this means that it hits each and every one of us in a profound and permanent way. We have been prepared for the new portals available beginning this weekend and through this year.
Saturn and Pluto were joined with several other points in the sky in Capricorn, the sign of Karma, that insists we address the lessons that have emerged in this year in our own lives individually: what we need to release that is not helping us grow, or what we need to commit to further in order to build a structure of meaning. Instant karma is a trend of 2020, and you will know where you you need to transcend and empower yourself. Choose to be aligned with your goals, purpose, and integrity. Life may seem tenuous at the moment, but you can choose how you frame it, and how you respond to the karmic call of duty that is resounding within and around all of us.
Jupiter and Pluto meet up today on April 4, 2020 and embrace a new 12 year cycle of opening new portals of consciousness. They will meet up two more times later in June and November of this year. Jupiter and Pluto meet up exactly at 10:45 pm EDT at 24 degrees of Capricorn and are only within two degrees of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction from January and set it off again.
Every time a configuration or even the moon enters a Cardinal sign and triggers that degrees of 22 degrees of Capricorn, we default back to the lessons of 2020 that pairing brought upon us: collapsing of old structures, institutions, and traditions of old paradigms that no longer serve on the collective or the individual front.
When the two planets meet up int he sky, this a phenomenal pairing. Jupiter is the Grand benefic, which represents expansion, higher wisdom, and hope. Pluto represents regeneration, release of toxicity, power, and repair. Jupiter and Pluto conjunction is an aspect in which you can accomplish almost anything. It is a cycle of tremendous business success, financial partnerships and achievement.
On 4/4/2020 (4/4/4/), people throughout the world will join together through meditation with the universal goal to heal the pain and loss, find a cure for the corona virus, and raise the vibration through love and communal solidarity. This cycle occurs both on April 4, 2020 and April 5, 2020 depending on where you are in the world.
Use this new 12 year cycle to transform your own goals, partner with others on what you want to achieve, and to empower yourself to succeed in your chosen ventures. It is imperative that I also address the more difficult part of the Jupiter/Pluto pairing that take place this weekend.
The fact that it sets of the historical conjunction from January means that the challenges will peak before they can be contained (Saturn). Loss, change, and fear are rampant (Pluto). When life is uncertain and not guaranteed, it becomes so much more precious, passionate, and real.
I cast a chart for the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction for the East Coast, and the chart has Scorpio ascendant, which means that Pluto rules the chart. The planets in Capricorn and Aquarius, which are both ruled by Saturn in Aquarius, fall in the second house of income, value, and creativity.
Capricorn rules big business, government, the economy, and Karma. We are repairing and renovating through new ways of doing things. The South Node in Karma in Capricorn indicates that old methods and possessions may no longer have value to us, or we may have to release ways of how we earn things; Jupiter and Pluto bring empowerment, change, and good fortune in how we earn income and help bring new value into our lives; Saturn in Aquarius provides the foresight to innovate new ways to earn money and keep solid in a forever changed economy.
Mars entered Aquarius on March 30, 2020 where it will tour through May 12, 2020. Mars in Aquarius is transiting in the third house in this chart, which means our biggest way of getting things done is through taking action through learning new skills, communication, and taking steps to help local community as well as global with Jupiter and Pluto so close to the world stage.
There is a very lucky and beautiful triangle known as a Grand trine in Earth. It involves The South Node of Karma, which means we ground through release of the familiar; Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius and planet of genius, in the fixed earth sign of Taurus in the house of creativity and self expression; The Moon in the mutable earth sign of Virgo, the sign of service, in the house of faith. This is a very helpful energy to assist us and protect us in such tough times. Venus in Gemini in the house of partnerships also forms a beautiful trine to Saturn in Aquarius in the second house of income, and so much emanates from partnering with others at this time. Financial affiliates will become more prevalent as we help businesses both big and small working and thriving.
The Sun is at 15 degrees of Aries, which is exactly where Mars will station direct after its retrograde later in the fall. Mars retrogrades at 28 degrees of Aries on September 9, 2020 at 28 degrees of Aries. This transit lasts through November 12, 2020 when it stations direct on November 12, 2020 — also at 15 degrees of the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries. That will not be an easy retrograde, as Mars is how we take action and it is in its rulership. Therefore, all the more reason to push through to take action now to join together to achieve, enlighten, heal, and uplevel your lives!
Neptune in Pisces is at the bottom of the chart and is only a degree away from Mercury in Pisces, which rules our mental outlook. There is fear at home — wherever one lives, and there is great sensitivity and empathy. The fourth house in astrology also represent our own emotional foundation. Neptune rules the imagination and dreams; therefore, this further pronounces how powerful meditation and manifesting is on this day of critical shifts of 2020. I wish you much luck, as we enter a new portal together from afar.
Full Moon in Libra: All you need is Love.
There continues to be lots of action in the cosmos. Tonight there is a very turbulent Super moon in Libra. This is a cosmic call to action that is driven by love and not anger. You may have to remind yourself with all of the volatility surrounding us now and within the Full Moon chart; but, Libra is ruled by Venus, and that encompasses love.
Over the weekend, there was a very powerful pairing of Jupiter and Pluto that marked a new 12.5 year cycle of empowerment, transformation, death, rebirth, and the opening of new portals of karmic consciousness. Jupiter is the planet of faith, optimism, higher learning, and expansion. Jupiter is the big picture. It is the vision. Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth, joint financial resources, fear, manipulation, transformation, and transcendence. Pluto is intense!!! It is power — both good and bad.
When Jupiter and Pluto meet up together, they are unstoppable. This planetary combination is excellent for perseverance, accomplishment, healing, financial partnerships, and spirituality. Many people that have Jupiter and Pluto conjunct are highly successful and can garner much wealth in this lifetime. At present, this planetary pairing is exaggerating the Capricorn pattern that has been in the sky since January, and that which involves death, rebirth, and collapsing of old structures on a global level.
That said, this cosmic duo is going to amp things up a few notches in the next few weeks. It is imperative that you take all precautions to be safe, as things will escalate. Although Jupiter is a benefic and is a planet of good fortune, it expands that with which it comes in to contact. In this case, it expands the challenges before we can achieve the needed healing and transformation. You cannot live in fear, but you can live with accountability and personal responsibility in how you live your life right now. As people are singing throughout the world, “I love you, but please stay at home!” Zoom along now!
Keep in mind that Jupiter and Pluto meet up two more time this year. They meet up at 24 degrees of Capricorn on June 30, 2020 and set off the historical Saturn/Pluto pairing of January 12, 2020. They meet up a third and final time on November 12, 2020 at 22 degrees of Capricorn, which is exact to the degree and is at the world axis. The world axis indicates that the WHOLE world is impacted. Each and every one of us.
There is a lot of loss and pain in the world, but there is opportunity to heal and grow. Our world is forever changed. Jupiter and Pluto will help us to get through this, evolve our skills and strength, and transform. Pluto rules the fixed water sign of Scorpio. Think of the phoenix rising from the ashes. That can be all of us on the collective; although, we will rise again in tears. It is not negative to acknowledge the pain; in fact, it is necessary. We are in mass mourning, and we need to be there for one another.
Tonight, there is a powerful Super Moon in Libra, which occurs at 10:35 pm EDT at 18 degrees of Libra. Ordinarily, the moon in Libra is a beautiful placement, as it is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. This Full Moon is volatile in that it is at its perigee, which means it is closest to the earth. I subscribe to “Word of the day,” but I never really open it because I get saturated with email. Today, I happened to notice the word was perigee. I knew that I had to write this article — even though I almost dodged it due to lack of sleep. The universe is listening, and it called for me to wake up, too! I answered the phone.
This Full Moon packs quite a punch, as it square the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction. This sets off the erratic and unpredictable energy that is inherent in an ordinary full moon, but this one is on fire! I cast the chart for Eastern time, and the Full Moon chart has Scorpio ascendant, which means that Pluto is the modern ruler. Pluto is squaring the moon, which means manipulation, triangles, and power-playing. Jupiter expands that even further. It also expands our ability to transform, but this is a process.
Mars is the ancient ruler of the chart, and it is in exact combat with Uranus, the planet of chaos. Mars is the God of war, and you can infer from that alone that this is not an easy aspect. This an influence where people can lash out in anger, get violent, be enraged very quickly, and act without forethought.
Many of us might not think much at all with all of this rushed and impulsive energy. Tap into the Libra moon, which is ruled by Venus. Tap into love. Try to release the anger. Not easy and no judgement. Act as I say because I will struggle with this, too.
Mars is the modern ruler of the Sun in Aries, which is in opposition to the moon in Libra by default. The Sun is conjunct Eris, the goddess of discord. There is a lot of anger in that combination as well. Honor and feel the anger if comes up within you. Try to find ways to quell it as best as you can.
The Moon in Libra is conjunct Pallas Athena, which is the goddess of wisdom and warlike strategy. This a worldwide war on illness; therefore, be strategic in how you conduct business, how you maintain and improve your health, and how you partner through action and not anger.
No man is an Iland, intire of itselfe; every man
is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine;
if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe
is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as
well as if a Manor of thy friends or of thine
owne were; any mans death diminishes me,
because I am involved in Mankinde;
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.” — John Dunne
